Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.
The problem is, Caleb employs his lupine tracking abilities as a notquite-legal bounty hunter, and Anna is suspicious of both him and his profession. On the run from her past, with old problems closing in, she'd like to stay far, far away from anybody with connections to the law. Caleb, however, seems determined to keep her close. Are his intentions noble, or is he working a more predatory angle?
Anna's been dreaming of returning to a semi-normal life, but now she's experiencing a strange new urge . . . to join Caleb in running with the wolves
This was my favorite in the series. It featured Anna Moder, a woman fleeing an abusive husband and Caleb Graham, the bounty hunter. There was a lot of twist and turns in this one, but I really enjoyed these two. I felt like there was a friendship before love as Anna doesn’t give trust very easily. So Caleb really earned it…then the bottom fell out!
Maggie was in this one, but she wasn’t the cantankerous alpha from book 1. She was the somewhat redeemed sister from book 2, but I still haven’t warmed to her yet. Sorry Maggie!
Anyway, serious subject matter with some humor interspersed throughout. Ms Harper really knows how to write witty novels and Amanda Ronconi really interprets the characters well. What a great partnership those two have. Definitely my favorite of the series.
