Bridged by Love
Genre: Paranormal Romance – Werewolves
Publication: July 21st 2015
Follow his head, he breaks her heart. Follow his heart… he breaks his pack.
From the moment he was born, Nic Kagan’s future was sealed. He’ll accept a mate, have kids, and eventually take over his father’s role as pack alpha. There’s just one problem.
Long ago, his heart settled on Riley, the pack’s human doctor and honorary member. Except only half of him can have her. The other half—his wolf—won’t give a weak non-shifter female a second sniff.
No one—human or shifter—has left a mark on Riley’s soul like Nic. But with his father hospitalized, any hope things could work out between them is slipping away. Yet Riley understands something else about pack life. Power isn’t always a physical gift; love is just as strong. What she and Nic have is worth fighting for.
With rival threats mounting, Nic realizes he can’t simply turn his back on Riley. Though his wolf could tear his heart out for it, he must fight for what he wants before he loses his mate. His pack. Maybe even his sanity.
Warning: Contains a reluctant alpha with only one roadblock between his heart and the woman he loves—biology. And a woman who isn’t giving up on him, even if it means risking her life to fool Mother Nature.

Bridged by Love is book one in a new series Kagan Wolves by Nancy Corrigan.
I enjoyed Bridged by Love. The story is appealing, but I felt like it could have been executed better. I did though end up reading this in one sitting and could not put it down, but I may have read it a little too fast.
I found it to be a very emotional read especially with Nic and Riley’s feelings and the things they end up doing to each other. I was heartbroken and frustrated with these two. Which brings into play the authors new spine on the shifter mentality. It’s an interesting take and one that I have not read before with all the shifter books out there. This new twist added to the angst in the romance. These two have a history and why Nic comes home is not for Riley, but to accept his place as Alpha and take a shifter mate even though Nic loves Riley. His wolf sees her as nothing more then week and the animals instinct is to mate and human/shifter mattings are infertile, so what can Riley do to win the wolves respect?
A few things bothered me: Riley was very headstrong in her love for Nic, but I did not like that she tolerated his back and forth for so long. This book has a lot of sex scenes (nothing wrong with that), but I felt like it was too much and it took away from building the relationship back. I also ended up not caring for the side story/characters. What is up with Nic’s sister Hannah? Really, I don’t think that needed to be in there or maybe it needed to be flushed out more. The secondary characters just added unnecessary drama and questions I could have dealt without. Last, I was confused with the epilogue and the combination of who’s DNA the kid has that Riley is caring. Is it Nic’s and another female shifters or is it Nic’s and Riley’s? We get some mention about different treatments to combat the infertile matings, but it was unclear.
Bridged by Love was a good read and I plan on reading more from Ms. Corrigan.
