Anchor (Northern Shifters #4)
She follows her dreams into his arms…and danger is not far behind.
Mala never outgrew her night terrors. At twenty-eight, her nights are a battleground as she defends helpless wolves from attack by their own kind. The effort costs her—one dream often leads to a week of missed work.
When her defense of a young wolf is rewarded by the mention of a real town, she finally has...more
Mala has had night terrors all of her life, dreams where she becomes a part of a wolf who is in terrible fear of its life. Over the years, she’s learned how to harness that fear and turn it into a weapon against the attacker, but the nightmares always leave her shaken and exhausted, not to mention isolated and half-convinced she’s crazy. At least, until she slips back into the mind of t...more
*warm fuzzies* I found Anchor a very satisfying read. The world building was solid, and the reading experience was… well, I keep coming back to words like satisfying, solid, straightforward, consistent. Even competent. As in, I had no fear that the foundation was going to crumble beneath me. So to speak.
Apparently Anchor is a part of a series of standalone books. It truly does stand alone well. I didn't...more

How I got this book: Review Request from the author
Anchor was my first read by Spencer, and although there were a few things I stumbled over, I enjoyed the overall story.
Mala has always had weird abilities when she was dreaming, and the most recent dreams are getting more and more scary and terrifying. When one dream changes and instead of seeing a wolf, she sees a young boy, Mala wonders if may...more
This book was really pretty good. It was actually on the mild side for it to be classified as erotic romance in my opinion. Overall, the book was a satisfying read, although I thought the end fell a little flat. There could have been more, in my opinion. Was Mala really staying? Are Mala and Angus going to be a couple? Get married? Have babies? Does Angus's daughter, Jancis, finally warm up to Mala? And, what IS Jancis's deal with Mala? I found her to be rather hostile to Mala for no...more
Angus MacIntyre is the alpha of WolfTown, although it is not necessarily a title he needs, hi...more
On the story side, as in wolves, dreams and so on... it's ok... not something to fuss about but a good plot... BUT and this is a big BUT... I was expecting a romance and I got that ... it's just it was in the last 20 pages :/
I mean seriously you cannot put a sexy guy on the cover and give us one sexy scene that's not even that well written. I'm not sure how the rest of the series will go but this first book was an ok book to read if you are NOT expecting...more
Things I loved:
There was communication and forthrightness among all the characters in the novel. Even the villain was upfront.
The writing was sad and lovely all at the same time.
Characterisation was good for all the main characters.
(and coming off the disappointment that was the 5th Cassie Palmer novel, this JS book was a great pick-me-up/palate cleanser)
