"You’re pregnant, Graham.”

Wow. Life has tossed Graham a lot of curveballs, but he never expected to hear those words. Then, just as Graham and his fated mate, Hyden, are getting used to that amazing news, someone from Graham’s past returns and kidnaps him, threatening the very future they want to build. Turns out Graham is an Oletti, a bloodline of wolf shifters that seems to be part of an ancient prophecy, one that speaks of a hidden magical spring of water that can restore the earth and all that is in it. A power some would kill to possess. Except, in the wrong hands, it can also turn humans and shifters totally away from what, and who, they truly love, tearing families and even fated mates apart.

Unfortunately, Hyden has been forced to drink this water so no one is coming to rescue Graham. It’s now up to him to not only save himself, his unborn child and his fated mate, but very possibly the world as they know it. But superhero capes are hard to come by and he never liked himself much in tights. Still, with the help of his Oletti powers, this should be something he can do, right? Oh, Great Wolf, let this be something I can do...

Book Review

‘Graham’s Rescue’ is the third book in the ‘Oletti Shifter’ series, and pulls together all the loose ends from the previous two books. The main characters, Graham and Hyden, are back as the focus of the story, and I loved seeing how they are getting on now that they are a mated pair. But the author doesn’t make it easy for them, throwing a lot of obstacles in their way and making me hold my breath to try to deal with the suspense. An ancient prophesy is revealed, new threats come to the fore, and Graham and Hyden’s mate bond is severely tested. All in all, the worldbuilding is excellent, the plot and subplots work well, and my questions about who or what the mysterious Oletti are were answered.


Graham, yet again, has to deal with the harsher side of life. He has only had about six months of relative peace with Hyden, but the political tension has been mounting between shifter packs as well as between humans and shifters. It all comes to a head when Graham is kidnapped, forced to confront some of the bad guys from his past, and needs to figure out how not just to deal with all of that, but also with how to save himself. It is a lot to ask of a basically wanting-to-be-obedient omega who happens to be pregnant, and forces Graham to grow beyond what he ever thought possible.


Hyden may be the “big bad alpha” of the two, but all his power and blustering are useless when his enemies deal him an underhanded blow. It leaves Hyden powerless to help Graham – not something he had ever thought possible. And not something that is easy to deal with for someone who is used to being in charge! As a result, his behavior (violent tendencies and useless anger included) did not exactly make me like him more. His initial reaction was maybe understandable, but the degree to which he let himself go wasn’t helpful in finding Graham at all.


There has always been air of mystery around the Oletti shifters, about who they are and that their males might be able to get pregnant. In this third book, I finally got some more details and, as it turns out, there is quite a bit going on behind the scenes. Not just the earthquakes and the weird drug that seems to affect shifters, but now there appears to be some special kind of water as well. Yes, it is all connected, but you’ll have to read the books for details. It certainly makes for some interesting worldbuilding!


If you like your romances with a healthy dose of mystery and action, if you want to know how Graham and Hyden are doing, and if you’re looking for a suspenseful read that is firmly rooted in today’s environmental and political situation, then you will probably like this novella. I am happy to see the story arc that began in book one come to a satisfying conclusion in this final volume.
