Dane Lassiter was a wolf in shining armor. 

He was the sensible, level-headed shifter that everyone relied on to keep the peace and follow the rules, which he did, no matter what the cost to his personal happiness. When he met his fated mate, the one woman created just for him, Dane realized that there was nothing he wouldn’t do, no rule he wouldn’t break to make her his. The ruthless streak he’d kept hidden emerged with a vengeance. 

Shana Nichols craved the kind of bond that mates shared. 

She longed for a man who would always be faithful, love her forever and make her burn with desire. She got more than she dreamed of when a charming wolf shifter claimed she was his mate. He stole her heart with gentle patience and panty-melting passion, but she could not be the mate that he needed. After she rejected their union, she discovered that walking away from the mate bond was impossible. 

Because he’ll stop at nothing to make her his.

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

Her Wolf in Shining Armor featuring Dane and Shana is the sequel to his brother’s romance entitled The Big Bad Wolf’s Ex featuring Reece and Jolie

Title:  Her Wolf in Shining Armor
Series:  sequel to The Big Bad Wolf’s Ex
Author:  Tonya Brooks

My Rating:  4.5 stars

We first met Dane in Reece’s story, The Big Bad Wolf’s Ex, and at that time he was a compelling secondary character that I hoped would get to tell his own story one day.  That hay arrived with Her Wolf in Shining Armor.

I liked Dane and Shana together.  They met when both were at their lowest in the love department, yet as most shifters, Dane knew immediately that Shana was his fated mate.  Shana might be human, but she knew instant attraction when she felt it… and their connection was like nothing she’d ever experienced before.

Yes, there are several issues to be worked out between them.  Most were easily taken care of if they had only “talked to each other”… but then we wouldn’t have gotten the emotional, sexy and heart-stopping romance that we did.  They were a believable couple to me because, frankly, couples do these kind of things when they’re trying to protect the one they love “for their own good”… without asking.  The drama was a bit stronger because wolf shifters are involved but I not only liked their romance but found it plausible as well (for the genre).

We get to met up with Reece and Jolie again to see where their lives are now, as well as Shana’s friend Cindy.  I do wish that Cindy’s romance had its own book, for I would have liked to know this feisty loyal friend better.  There are a couple twists and turns later in this story that put a different spin on the ending.  Overall, I enjoyed my time in their world once again and would happily recommend both stories to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader.  I had fun with this one – and isn’t that the whole point?
