*Beware of Spoilers*


Stanzie’s job as Advisor to the Great Council is discovering other people’s secrets. When those secrets are being kept by the ones she loves most, can she find the courage to expose them?

Under orders from a Councilor, Stanzie journeys to Dublin and the MacTire pack. Her mission: warn her estranged bond mate, Liam Murphy, to abandon his overzealous search for the man responsible for the death of his first bond mate. Not only is he endangering himself, but also disrupting the delicate balance between opposing factions in the conspiracy threatening to tear the Great Pack apart.

Liam needs Stanzie’s help to protect their Alpha, who has entangled himself in the conspiracy’s deadly web. But he also desperately wants her back. In a race against time, Stanzie and Liam discover enemies often wear the faces of friends.


 Stanzie has been going through the motions in Boston – barely existing and feeling abandoned by her bond mate, Murphy, who has seemingly deserted her in her time of need.  She is more than a little conflicted when she is ordered to Dublin by Councilor Allerton but she knows that this is the opportunity she has been waiting for – the opportunity to get Murphy back.

In Ireland, she is reunited with the Mac Tire, Alpha Paddy O’Reilly and Liam Murphy.  She soon finds herself in the middle of a battle for the future of Packs – a battle that threatens to destroy them all. She has to choose a side and she only hopes that when she does, she will be on the same side as the man she loves.

“Love, complicated and immense, twisted through my guts. Everything was in such turmoil, but I had Murphy’s love and he had mine. God, would it be enough to get us through if things took an abrupt shift for the worse? – Stanzie

I really enjoyed About Face.  Stanzie is such a strong heroine and as a reader, you feel the conflict churning within her.  She often speaks her mind (without a filter!) and struggles with what is right and wrong.  She wants so desperately for Murphy to return her love and yet she feels undeserving of it.  I have to admit having a bit of a book crush on Paddy O’Reilly.  His easygoing charm and good looks made him a character that you just have to love.  That being said, the epilogue was a real tearjerker for me.

I would recommend this book to all lovers of paranormal romance.  About Face is really well written, fast paced and truly engaging from beginning to end.
