Desert Blood (The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch Book 2) Kindle Edition
She's on the run...into the arms of forbidden love.Heather Luth knows nothing about the paranormal world until one awful night changes everything. Now she’s on the run — straight into the arms of forbidden love. Her mind knows better than to fall for a werewolf's sunny smile and mesmerizing voice, but her heart — and destiny — have other ideas.
On the surface, Cody Hawthorne is warm, witty, and fun, but beneath his carefree facade, Heather sees a real man struggling to break free. Day by day, Heather and Cody grow closer and closer, unable to resist their simmering passion — while day by day, a serial murderer closes in on his prey. Duty fights desire; fear wrestles trust as the human world clashes with the paranormal in a tale of forbidden love.

It was great to see Cody coming of age in this book, he needed his story told and Heather was the perfect woman for him.
Cody is Ty’s younger brother and has been ignored by his father as he was not the heir.
He spent his time doing little work and womanising a lot. He decides to change his life for himself and then Heather arrives. A human who is off limits, yeah, tell that to his wolf.
He is also helping the law track what is happening when bodies start turning up drained of blood. When he pieces it together that Heather is the target all bets are off.
Heather is running from the evil that killed her friend but cannot tell anyone because they would think she was crazy. She takes on the temporary teaching post at the ranch which gives her time to breath and think through what she will do next.
Heather is drawn to Cody but keeps hearing about his womanising and seeing him with different women all over the place, usually innocently. As she spends time with him she sees the man he wants to be.
She has enough on her plate as it is without dealing with him.
Fate has other ideas and when the vampires catch up with Heather, Cody will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Even defy his father. Unfortunately to save Heather he has to bring forth his wolf which pushes Heather to run away as her mind is on overload. Vampires, now wolf shifters. Just too much to cope with.
What happens when Heather returns to the ranch?
A lovely enjoyable read. I just wish we could get rid of that horrible father.
Heather is on the run. A night out on the town with her girlfriend Cathy ended in tragedy. Cathy is dead and Heather is running from the very real threat of vampires. Having just barely escaped her first encounter, Heather is staying one step ahead of the pursuing vampires. At the end of her finances and needing to recoup a bit, she stops in a small town in Arizona and takes a teaching job out at the Twin Moons Ranch. After her very harrowing experience she’s just a bit wary of all men… but there is just something about Cody that calls to her. And while at first you might suspect that Heather is a bit timid nothing could be further from the truth. This is one woman that might have to come to terms with the very real threat she’s been dealing with, but she will come out swinging when pushed against the wall. Heaven help you if this gal has a hockey stick in hand.
I totally loved watching the transformation in Cody. Heather’s insights from teaching help her to see the man beneath the facade. While the wooing might be creating a slow burn, the tension definitely ignites into a flash fire when these two finally come together. Desert Blood has become my favorite so far. Not sure if that’s due to the vampire threat, serial killer angle or the reformation of a bad boy, but the combination is a total winner.

I just finished reading 'Desert Blood'... I really loved being back in the lives of the Were's of Twin Moon Ranch. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop & I was at the end of the book & wanting more. I do advise that you read book 1 & novella 1.5 'Desert Moon' & 'Desert Wolf' of "The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch" first, as they are in chronological order. Although each main book is for a different main character, all characters interweave in each book.
Heather hasn't stopped driving since that fateful night the paranormal came into her life, but something about the Arizonia desert feels safe to her. Everything inside tells her to stop & recoup for a bit. Cody has lived his life playing a part, not being his true self, being the playboy... ladies man... but he's getting tired of it. Seeing his brother Ty with his mate Lana, makes Cody see what he's missing. Something about Heather draws him to her.
I loved how Anna has brought her characters together... again, they feel so alive & vivid... I could almost touch them. I loved reading the relationship changes within the siblings, now that Ty is mated. The growth that Cody does within this book is epic, as well as Heather's growth, I think they needed one-another to heal. Thank you Anna for an enthralling read, I can't wait for book 3's release. I need more of "The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch"!!
In her trusty orange vw she drives and drives and finds herself in Arizona. Twin Moon Ranch offers a job sent from heaven and her next adventure starts. Will she find peace or will the hunter get his prey? Recommended read. I received this book as a gift but also own many books by this author. 🤓
