Cover Description:

As a Guardian climbing the ranks in the Black Mesa Wolf Pack, Sara Kenyon’s life is ideal. A sexy firecracker, she’s never regretted her carefree love-’em-and-leave-’em attitude. But when her one-time fling, smokin’ hot Rafe Bardou, wants the only thing she can’t give him—commitment—she starts to question if freedom is everything she desires.

Rafe’s patience is legendary. Yet for all his strength and control, Rafe craves something he can’t have: free-spirited Sara as his mate. Her red-hot kisses have eluded him for over a year, but he can’t stop thinking about how they once tangled the sheets together. Now he’s out of time. Her commitment to him is essential—not only for his own happiness, but for the future of the Pack.

Losing control isn’t an option. But it may be the only way to convince this sweet vixen he’s her alpha wolf.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Titles in this series include:  Guardian Wolf – Alpha Wolf – Running Wolf – Wild Wolf – Christmas Wolf – Rogue Wolf

Sara is a Guardian, and she takes that responsibility very seriously.  She’s out to prove herself worthy, especially as her partner is the delicious Rafe – the man she’d had an intense one night stand with.  A man that she can’t quite get her mind off of and that’s driving her to distraction.  Something that she certainly cannot afford.

Rafe is convinced that Sara is his mate.  Suspects that the flirty little she wolf thinks so too but is in high denial and running scared mode.  His problem becomes timing.  He’s been given the task of forming his own pack further out from the main territory of his father… connected, yet separate.  The rogue wolves are becoming a bigger problem daily, and this is a move that his father has had in mind for some time now.  Rafe needs his mate with him as he forms his new pack, he needs his Alpha’s mate at his side.  Sara is convinced that she’s not strong enough, but Rafe feels differently.

I enjoyed Alpha Wolf and it definitely has some stubborn, sexy Shifters as the main focus of this story.  The danger of the rogue wolves intensifies and the tensions are much higher.  Sara and Rafe make perfect patrol partners, and they would make a really strong Alpha couple to lead Rafe’s new pack.

Sara has her issues, and she going to have to deal with them as she makes a life changing decision.  Rafe is a patient man, but time is running out and moves have to be made.  Sara is scared, out of her element and in denial of her connection to Rafe.  Their story continued the overall feel of the series along quite nicely and opened the door for the next story.

If you enjoy intense and stubborn Shifters then this story is right up your alley.  I would definitely recommend Alpha Wolf and this entire series.  Very strong characters, a common enemy and believable (for a Shifter world) situations.  I believe you’ll be as hooked as I am on this series.

I read this story through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. For ten dollars a month you get access to thousands of really great stories across all genre, and the authors get paid for you reading the story through to the 100% mark. It’s a win-win. Probably the best 10 bucks I spend a month.

Available for the Kindle (yes, there is a new cover)
