Tasked with keeping a child safe, Monica is on the run. Bear Creek is the place she’s running to, where she hopes to find the one man she’s been told will help her. The one man she can trust. 

Used to taking care of herself, trust is one thing she does not give easily. Monica, an ex-soldier, knows trust must be earned. So, when she comes face to face with the man she’s seeking, she has no intention of spilling all her secrets. Even if that man is her mate. 

Wyatt came to the mountains to escape his past. To escape the guilt of not being there for a friend when he was needed the most. But recent events in Bear Creek mean he’s willing to move on. 

However, when he scents his mate on the mountain, he must decide if he’s ready to do more than move on. 

To help his mate, and an old friend in need, he must be willing to fight and accept the price he may be forced to pay—no matter how high it may be.

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

Title:  Silverback Wolf
Series:  Return to Bear Creek #17
Author:  Harmony Raines
Published:  April 5, 2018
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Wyatt has hidden himself on the mountain above Bear Creek, his reasons are his own and they matter to him.  He isn’t the least concerned what others think about him, he needs the open spaces and alone-ness of this mountain.  Over the last several stories we’ve gotten a better look at Wyatt and gotten to know the surface of this lone wolf.  Finally Wyatt gets to find his mate and perhaps put some closure on the events that lead to his being on that mountain alone.

Silverback Wolf will bring many of our favorite shifters into this story as well as bringing Monica, Wyatt’s mate to Bear Creek.  She’s protecting a friend’s young son from what or who she doesn’t know but she has suspicions.  With help from Wyatt, a man her friend trusts, and perhaps letting others in from Bear Creek they can solve a dangerous situation and bring a family back together again.  I’m always glad to see older couples pair up in any series.  Love doesn’t stop at some magical age.  Wyatt and Monica have been through much in their lives, and eventually those things lead to each other.  There is betrayal in this story, yet there is also hope that eventually life will right itself and the good guys will come out on top.  Loved Fiona’s fierceness in this story, she’s one dragon I’d never want to be on the bad side of.  Wyatt and Monica make an interesting couple, they fit and are quite believable together.  This story gives a better sense of the tight knit community that is Bear Creek and we’ll run into several old friends along the way.  I had a great time with Wyatt and Monica’s story and would not hesitate to recommend it or this entire series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader.  When each new book feels like returning home – then you know that you’ve found the right series for you.
