Ms Reynolds is a new to me author. I enjoyed her story of Leigh, a woman who has been made to feel like an outcast her entire life and has no idea why or of the amount of secrets surrounding her family and the entire town her family has chosen to be part of. She’s always been ridiculed, whispered about, and shunned by the town and her family, other than her sister, Danielle, but stayed loyal to her family through it all. She’s only home for Danielle’s wedding and then plans to go back to her life across the Country as soon as the festivities are over. However, things change when Ryan — a shifter, unbeknownst to Leigh — seems to become her protector, regardless of the consequences, and they discover that they have a mutual attraction to each other. Because of outside interference, they have to part for a time, but Ryan doesn’t give up on Leigh. I love that this story not only shows the ugly, but also the good side of all species when acceptance, tolerance, and truthfulness are abundant. I also must warn that this story does contain very steamy bedroom scenes. Definitely worth reading.

Leigh Alexander has lived every day of her life feeling like an outcast amongst her family and the small-minded people of Pine Hollow, a secretive community to which her parents belong. When Danielle, Leigh’s younger sister, asks Leigh to come home for her wedding, Leigh’s torn between wanting to be there for her sister and saving herself from people who’ve despised her all of her life.
Knowing she’ll regret her decision, Leigh gives into her sister and goes home for what she hopes is the last time. Leigh was prepared for people to ignore her, for them to shun her, for them to point out all the ways she didn’t belong all because she wasn’t a size perfect, but what she hadn’t been prepared for was falling for Ryan Hart, a man who she will soon learn knows all of the secrets her family and the town of Pine Hollow refuse to tell her.
Revealing the truth about Pine Hollow and the rest of the supernatural world might be forbidden, but to save Leigh’s life, Ryan will tell her everything about who she is, or more importantly who she isn’t, even if it will forever change her life and the lives of every person in Pine Hollow.
Outcast is a full-length, stand-alone novel.
