Mountain Lion shifter, Trina Chapman, is having a rough year. Trying to find her legs over the loss of her Clan, she has bought a local bar and just needs to keep her focus until it can pay the bills. That would probably be easier to do if she didn’t have a rogue werewolf sniffing around and showing up in unexpected places. She knows she’s being hunted, and her first look at Kade’s inner wolf should have her running for the hills, but for some reason, the more she learns about him, the more interesting he becomes. She’d been resigned to tackle life alone, but he’s dependable in unexpected ways. And when she starts learning how thoughtful and protective and caring the bad boy outlaw werewolf really is, she starts thinking he just might be a good match for a shifter like her. That is, until she realizes she’s not the only one being hunted.
Kade is good and done with people. Newly pledged to the Blackwood Crow Clan, he’s used to doing things on his own. Independence can get a rogue shifter into big trouble quick though, and he’s fighting fires his new Clan doesn’t know about. His life revolves around three things. Keeping his step brothers safe, Changing into a monstrous wolf for days at a time…and Trina. One look at her and he’s done for, but she deserves much better than a man who can’t even keep her safe from himself. His wolf is out of control and Kade is spiraling down a path he can’t come back from. But maybe…just maybe…the girl that he loves enough to stay away from could be the key to his redemption.
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – in other words, there’s going to be sex involved in this story – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.
The Red Dead Mayhem series connects with the Outlaw Shifters series. All of these series and more can be found on the T.S. Joyce page.
Title: Redemption of a Wolf
Series: Red Dead Mayhem #4
Author: T. S. Joyce
Published: August 15, 2018
My Rating: 5 stars
I am truly at a loss for words right now, except for what a stunning way to bring the Red Dead Mayhem series (and in a way the connecting series Outlaw Shifters) to a close. I mean, I’m just sitting here staring at the screen trying to figure out what I could possibly say beyond – amazing freakin’ job. I loved this wrap-up to everything we’ve encountered with these shifters of many Clans, and Redemption of a Wolf was simply the sexy, intense icing on the cake to bring everything full circle and to an ending that brought a few tears.
Stories with the intensity of plot, character development and actual emotional attachment like Redemption of a Wolf are the driving reason why I read Shifter Romance.
Kade and Trina just work together. Yes, his wolf is an out of control beast, and her cat is strong from the difficulties of life that she’s faced – together, they are a force to be reckoned with. Trina sees him, she really sees the man and the wolf – and neither is crazy and both are worth saving.
We get to see just about everyone, or a mention of or a glimpse of at least, that we’ve met in both the Outlaw Shifters and the Red Dead Mayhem series. It’s touches like that, the wrapping up of loose ends, the showing of the relationships and the communities she creates that keep me coming back for more stories from T. S. Joyce constantly.
I don’t have words to tell you what an amazing, satisfying story Redemption of a Wolf is. I’m just going to hope that if you’ve read the rest of this series that you’ll figure that out when you pick this one up. If you haven’t discovered this series yet, I would highly recommend it – you’ll be amazed and become addicted to these crazy, out of control, sexy, intense shifters.
