War of Hearts (True Immortality #1) by S. Young
New York Times Bestselling author Samantha Young writing as S. Young!
Thea Quinn has no idea what she is. All she knows is that her abilities have been a plague upon her life since she was a child. After years of suffering at the hands of a megalomaniac, Thea escaped and has been on the run ever since.
The leadership and protection of his pack are of the utmost importance to Conall MacLennan, Alpha and Chief of Clan MacLennan, the last werewolf pack in Scotland. Which is why watching his sister slowly die of a lycanthropic disease is emotional torture. When Conall is approached by a businessman who offers a cure for his sister in exchange for the use of Conall’s rare tracking ability, Conall forges an unbreakable contract with him. He has to find and retrieve the key to the cure: dangerous murderer, Thea Quinn.
Thea’s attempts to evade the ruthless werewolf are not only thwarted by the Alpha, but by outside dangers. With no choice but to rely on one another for survival, truths are revealed, intensifying a passionate connection they both fight to resist. At war with themselves and each other, Conall and Thea’s journey to Scotland forces them to face a heartrending choice between love and betrayal.

War of Hearts is the first paranormal book of Samantha Young’s and I am really glad that I had a front row seat on reading an ARC. When I found out that she’s the one writing it, I did not even read the blurb, just drove right in.
Thank God because it’s a great way to start a series, especially when the book is also a standalone, meaning you don’t need to wait for book 2 in order to see the ending.
Despite War of Hearts being a standalone and has her own HEA, I still have unanswered questions and the main plot is still being developed. We just get a glimpse of their paranormal world that has much to give.
Thea Quinn has been running from an evil man for 6 years, but now he’s finally found her using the Alpha and Chief of Clan MacLennan, Conall MacLennan. He has quite an extraordinary ability for their kind, because once he has a scent, he doesn’t forget it and can find you anywhere. That is how he finds Thea. Unfortunately for him, she is always good at using her abilities, at least the ones she’s aware of having.
On their journey to Scotland, Conall fights his attraction to her and also his instincts. Fortunately, their chemistry is too much to ignore so they give in, but that has major consequences to both of them.
Considering Conall bargained his sister’s survival on Thea’s blood to heal her, they are in more trouble now when feelings are involved.
