About the Book:
Julien Gasquet belongs to the notorious Lycan clan, the Gasquet Pack based in New Orleans. After a vicious argument, he storms out of the compound and decides to spend the night with his sister, Jolie, in Baton Rouge.
Martina Beauchamp is considered an abomination to the Lycans as she isn't a pureblood and doesn't have a pack to call her own. She meets Julien after a horrifying incident forces her to flee her home and her car breaks down in the parking lot next to his truck.
The attraction Julien and Martina experience from the moment they meet isn't about lust or a one night stand. However, when the pack is involved in every decision a werewolf makes, is a happy ending at all possible?

Elle Chardou pens "Darkness Rising" with twists and turns while her characters have so much passion, tenderness and power that will totally capture your attention. This is paranormal romance novella with sexy good times, smokin' hot werewolves, toned bodies and explicit language. But you will find no blood, gore or closed door sex scenes. I love Elle Chardou's work and can't wait for the next book in the series.
I give Darkness Rising a 4 star rating.
