She Wolf (True Mates #1)
Right from the start the story engages you with complex characters who live and breathe right off the page. I wanted to keep following Anna and Kieran around and loved being entrenched in their world. An...more
Five years ago, when this was first published, the language used, in the first half in particular, wouldn't have seemed so cliched. The pace was slow and I didn't feel anything for the characters. But when Annabelle meets the pack things start to change. And then something devastating happens and Anna's emotions reached out and grabbed my throat, squeezing until my eyes watered. The only thing I didn't like about that part: when Kieran...more

Growing up Anna had always had a sharp sense of smell. She could distinguish different smells everywhere. And in a closed up bar with all that smoke and sweaty people. ugh! She had to get out of there.
She finally made it outside. gulping in air,...more

A small town veterinarian has a big time problem. She's not human.
Plagued as a child with an extra-sensitive sense of smell, strength, and eyesight, Anna Callaway always thought she was special. But she didn't understand how special until she met Kieran Hunter.
He insists they are True Mates, but he's not human either. He's wolven.
Kieran is a protector of his race. No longer the Alpha of his pack, he spends his time searching out and punishing any who may reveal their race to humans. While pat...more
Meaning that you just have to go along with the major jumps in the story line because otherwise you might not make it....
She is a vet and dogs respond well to her... she meets someone who makes her feel sexy
is this too transparent for you...
there are some twists which can catch you unaware...
some characters are introduced more fully than others - leading to a series... hopefully.
by the end of the story I wanted to know what will happen to these people...
she finds her fathe...more
Kudos to the author: even with the usual mate stuff, she gives some time and space to the heroine. I'm only sorry for the use of (view spoiler)[miscarriage (hide spoiler)] as a deus ex machina. Too difficult a subject to treat it so quickly.
Character coherence went to hell with a minor one: Rynard. You don't move from would-be rapist to "nice" guy.
A few hints given go nowhere (like the stolen silver scalpel).
This was a very moving read. I love when the hero has to work for the heroine. And that was definitely the case here. Anna had to work to believe all that Kieran told her. She had no idea she was half wolven or that they even existed until him.
I just found myself another series to start reading…yah! A well written book and it was a full length one at that with 18 chapters to entertain me. I got this one back in April at All Romance when it was free, not so now when I checked. I will be continuing the series to find out what happens with some of the other characters mentioned in this book.
I'm giving it a rating of 3 stars.
