Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.

Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she's just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.

But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.
There is nothing like being completely pulled into a storyline that's so good that you just don't want to stop reading it.  That is exactly what happened to me when I read True Colors and honestly I'm not surprised.  I've been enjoying all of Thea Harrison's releases this year and this book was no exception.   In True Colors we are introduced to 2 new characters who unfortunately meet due to a murder.  When Alice first sees Gideon, she thinks he is the man who killed her friend.  So she runs from him until she realizes that he is a cop.  Gideon instantly wants to protect Alice and realizes that he feels different when he is around her.  He's experiencing something that he's never felt before and takes it upon himself to protect Alice at all costs.  He has a hard look to him that is enough to scare someone, but Alice sees through all the roughness to what he really is.  Their scenes together are sweet and intense as they cannot hold back how they feel about one another.  I don't want to give away anything because I found myself pleasantly surprised while reading this novella.  I loved Gideon's natural protectiveness of Alice and how she allowed him to do what he thought was best. They were perfect for each other and enjoyed this novella so much!

I'm giving True Colors a rating of:

I'm anxiously waiting for more to read in this awesome series by Thea Harrison. I love her full length novels and am now a fan of her novellas. I hope she will continue to write the novellas so her fans can be introduced to other characters that exist in this world. They may not be main characters, but their stories are just as interesting.

Make sure you stop by the blog on Wednesday December 14th because Thea Harrison is stopping by with an awesome guest post and to give away a copy of True Colors!
