 “It's only fair to warn you that you sealed your fate tonight. When you knew you were in trouble, you came to me. That makes twice, Mercy, and twice is almost as good as a declaration. You are mine now.... Ben says you might run. If you do, I will find you and bring you back. Every time you run, Mercy. I won't force you, but. .. No more excuses, Mercy. You are mine, and I am keeping you.”


Title:  Iron Kissed
Series: Mercy Thompson #3
Kindle Edition, 321 pages
Urban Fantasy
Published January 2nd 2008 by Ace

I could smell her fear, and it satisfied something deep inside me that had been writhing under her cool, superior gaze. I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator...

Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape - but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.

Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her...

My Thoughts
Mercy Thompson is one of my all-time favorites.  I'm currently in the process of re-reading the series. 

This is one of my favorite scenes in the book.  Adam is the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, and he had declared Mercy his mate in front of his pack - for her own safety he says - but Mercy has been putting him off, not sure if she can handle being mated to an Alpha.  When she runs into trouble, though, it's Adam she turns to for help.


  1. I seriously need to read this series! Great quote :)

    1. Do it!!! It's one of my favorites. I don't re-read a lot, but this is one I'm glad I have.

  2. If you reread it, it must be a good series!
