GODDESS FISH TOURS **REVIEW**: "Extinct" by Nancy Adams












Buy Links:

Theo’s sole purpose for the last ninety-eight years was to protect his wolf. That changed the moment he met Drew and the wolf called ‘Mate’.

Carrying the soul of an extinct wolf alongside your own isn’t easy. Swapping into said wolf is even harder. Ask Theo Grey—he’s been doing it for ninety-eight years. Yet, after surviving two world wars, witnessing the space race and patiently enduring the eighties, you’d think he’d have seen it all, but nothing could have prepared him for meeting Tofino’s new vet, Drew O’Bannion and according to the wolf, his mate.

Drew loves her dog, sleeping in and coffee. She also loves being a vet. The main reason behind her accepting the veterinarian practice offered to her from a family friend. Hoping for a slower pace at life Tofino seemed the ideal spot. What she didn’t expect was Officer Theo Grey. Theo is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous, a definite 10 on the ‘wow’ scale. Regardless of his looks, there is more to Theo, there is her unexpected attraction for him. It’s unnerving and completely out of character for her, but she is able to match Theo’s hungry kiss, for hungry kiss.

With their desire growing at an alarming rate and the threat of an unknown shooter roaming the woods of the coastal town, Theo must face the ultimate decision—let Drew go for her own safety or claim his mate for all time.

“Then again, I haven’t lived as long as you and I wasn’t chosen by the wolf, so I really have no idea what it is you go through.”

Tom had his wife Gwen and three kids. He had a family that would age as he aged. He would watch his children marry and have children of their own and when it came time, Tom would die and finally know peace. Theo would never have that.

“No, you don’t,” Theo bit out.

“I’ve been alone, though.” Tom crossed his arms and gave him a serious look. “Long time before I met Gwen. I didn’t like it.”

Theo didn’t like being alone either, it wasn’t the best feeling knowing that everyone you either knew or loved was dead and all that was left were foggy memories, but at least he was used to it now.

“Mate here. Just Drew here.” Theo frowned at the choppy comment. Had the wolf known Drew would come here? Is that why he had been drawn back to this place time and again?

“Still annoyed, eh? Why don’t you go see Drew? I bet she puts a smile on your face.”

“Mmm,” Theo agreed slowly.

“What’s up now?”

Theo continued to frown. “Do you think the wolf knew Drew would come here?”

Tom frowned himself. “Maybe. He was able to enter the bodies of two humans, both from different times and continents. Sensing where his future mate could be found might be a bonus of his spiritual gifts or maybe it’s just a natural instinct.”

“What do you mean?”

“He’s a British Colombian wolf. This area was the only place on earth that particular animal was found. The island is his home. It makes sense that he would return to find a mate. Wouldn’t you like to go back to England and find yourself a pretty English girl?”

“No,” Theo answered honestly. “I don’t want to go back. I like it here.” He forced his posh English accent to the surface as he spoke. “I lost my taste for home after the war. Being the only wolf in England and hunted because of it has a way of leaving a bad taste in one’s mouth.”

Tom laughed. “Man, it freaks me out when you talk like that. I like you better when you speak like a relatively normal Canadian.”


My name is Nancy Adams. I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running though my veins. I enjoy watching hockey but despise skating...and the cold. I enjoy a good helping of Tourtiere with a side of Poutine as much as the next person, yet I am only bilingual when it comes to swear words.Besides writing, I have three small - but legal - addictions: bed linens, lavender and books. All of which are replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning is one of my many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
