Two wolves are better than one, but a pack of wolves beats trouble any day…

Ski Lodge owner and gray wolf Kayla Wolff hasn’t had the best romantic history, so dating Private Investigator and fellow pack mate Nate Grayson feels like she’s hit the jackpot. When she thinks about the way her last relationship ended, Kayla worries that she’ll screw up again and lose Nate too. 

When Nate’s latest investigation puts Kayla in the crosshairs, the pack comes together to help while Nate stays by her side day and night to protect the wolf he loves. There’s no doubt in his mind that Kayla is the mate for him, but does she feel the same way?

It’s time to return to one of my favorite Shifter locations Silver Town, Colorado, for Wolf on the Wild Side, the first story in the connecting series, Run with the Wolf.  As with any story within the Heart of the Wolf Universe, you can easily start right here; even though I wouldn’t call it a true standalone, you don’t “need” to have the full background to enjoy Nate and Kayla’s story, but you may run across some familiar faces if you’ve read previous stories set in this world.

Nate and Kayla have had a slow-burn style dating relationship for some time now.  While they each love the other, they haven’t exactly taken their relationship to the next level of acknowledging that they are mates.  Kayla has been too busy establishing and running the local inn/wedding destination with her siblings, and Nate has been wrapped up in his private investigator cases.  They feel no real rush, but their feelings are intensifying, and not always the “feel good” ones, but the “do they really love me” ones as well.  Add to that drama between mates; the robberies around Silver Town have been increasing, which is putting everyone on edge.  They’ll decide to get away from it all to a vacation cabin… and right into the middle of danger.

Wolf on the Wild Side is exactly what I expect of Terry Spear: a well-written story in a familiar world with a new couple to get to know, a touch of danger, lots of “special moments’ between the couple, both steamy and cuddly, as well as familiar faces wandering through the story at times.  I love returning to this world, especially with a new series.  If you love a well-written paranormal romance with some steam, a lot of laughter, tense moments, a bit of danger, and a plot that will keep you searching for clues throughout… then you’re going to love this one.
