Quinn is in America on a mission—to warn his Other brethren of a shadowy group willing to use murder and mayhem to bring them down.

Big Bad Irish Wolf is sent to the US on the important mission of convincing the American Council of “Others” that it is time that they revealed themselves to the humans. He gets destructed by the scent of honeysuckles that belongs to a foxy lady who, as he soon finds out, is his destined mate. They can’t keep their hands/paws/tails off each other, and after a day of what can only be described as a Sex Marathon, they realize that they are in love and that they want to be together till death do th

The first 100 pages were great! The rest of the book was typical paranormal good guys and bad guys. The plot was weak.

This is the first of a series, eight books so far. “Others” is the term for creatures including werefolk, vampires, witches, and magic-users. The Others live in secret among humans. Cassidy is a foxwoman (fox shifter) who teaches anthropology at a college. Her grandmother is a member of the Council of Others, the international governing body. Quinn is a werewolf (shif
I have read three of Warren's novels. Bottom line, the sex scenes are the best part of her books (and they are pretty good), but even good sex gets boring, after the nth page. As a long-time romance reader, I protest. Why can't we have it all -- sex AND a satisfying story, with clever dialogue, consistency in characterization, relationship development, and an absorbing plot?

The beginning was fun, with the rooftop chase scene. That whole long section was great, and held my attention. The rest of
Wolf at the Door was a decent read. It started out slowly, but picked up the pace half-way through. It's basically about a group of fanatics who call themselves the Light of Truth, threatening to unveil the paranormal world of The Others. The Others are trying to find them before it's too late. I thought that the romance between Quinn (a lupine) and Cassidy (a foxwoman) was pretty bland. They were fine as characters, though they could have been a little more developed. I felt that there was no s ...more

Maybe it's my fault for reading this after I finished book 5 in the Eileen Wilks Lupi series.(which I thoroughly enjoyed)

I didn't really like Warren's writing style... and the story itself was not great at all. If I had to read "Cassie,love" one more time I'm sure screams would have shot from my mouth while blood shot from my eyes.

In this genre there a winners and losers... this is a loser for me!

This was a little disappointing. It had some elements I really liked, but overall it missed the mark for me.

We start out by meeting our star couple, Irish werewolf Sullivan Quinn, and American Fox-woman Cassidy Po. Their meeting was somewhat unorthodox but amusing and I thought I was in for a treat because they seemed like really nice characters. And they were. Cassidy was intelligent, witty and beautiful and a rarity as a supernatural, being one of only two fox-women in the US (or maybe it was

I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, smart, and had a smoking hot wolf-shifter as the Hero. I actually really enjoyed the heroine as well. She was smart and had some great snarky commments and inner dialogue.

I like the idea of the preternatural community working together under the term "Others". It gave a sort of oneness that I think is missing sometimes in PNR. I like seeing witches and vampires and shifter, OH MY!

I actually would have given this 5 stars if not for one thing...EDITING!

I couldn't decide between a 3.5 or a 4. I settled on a 4 because I LOVE the world that Christine Warren has created.

The "others" meaning, the were creatures, vamps, fae, demons ect have been hidden from the humans for thousands of years. NOW, they're existence is threatening to be known and some WANT to be known to the humans, they think it's time to co exist in the open, and some of the others DO's where the story starts.

A bit of a slow start, but the characters and the world b

Although I couldn't help with the comparisons to Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhoue series, I really did enjoy this book.

Our female lead, is smart, sarcastic, and can turn into a fox. A real fox. Cassidy is one of the few foxwomen in the world, and is busy trying to live up to her grandmother's expectations in the political world of the supernaturals Warren terms "Others".

The male lead is an Irish wolf, who upon smelling Cassidy's honeysuckle scent is immediately attracted to her, and spends t

i read this book on a whim and i was happy i did, i found this book highly entertaining.
i havent read anyting from this author before and i was very pleased that this book was along my line of books i like to read....
the main characters in this book are a hoot, have a ball reading this book its a must read.
the story line was great from start to finish. it was easy to read and written very very well, the sex sence and very very well written(and hot), its more then just sex in this book there a co
I'm beginning to think that Warren's 'Others' series is hit-and-miss for me. I liked Walk on the Wild Side and Big Bad Wolf, but others (pun intended?), like this one just haven't been great. In fact, I struggled to finish it. It started off good, with some sexual tension, but then it just fell flat. The characters weren't that interesting, I felt the heroine ended up being a bit too easy after her initial reaction and the story wasn't all that entertaining. Also, Quinn's Irish brogue was awful ...more

So I have had this book sitting in my tbr stack for probably close to a year and I finally decided to give it a shot for a reading challenge and I'm glad I did. For the first book in a series it was very good, there is some romance, well lust really, at first, then some intrigue, mystery, then some serious romance, culminating in a happy ending for the main characters, at least thus far. I enjoyed this first book, it's a nice easy read and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series... unf ...more
Two things first. I got this inn audio book form and my biggest problem was the narrator. She was very choppy. The next thing was on the case of the audio book it said it was the first book. And it wasn't until I went to get the next book in the series did I find out that was not the case. I will deffently read the other books in the series. I really liked the characters and the story. And if I am correct I may be lucky because this book did read like a stand alone book. So hopefully I am not to ...more

1+ 1/2 stars

Couldn't get through the whole book,I loved the first couple chapters and then when the draggy sex scenes came along I just skimmed to the back of the book to see the conclusion. I was also turned off the lack of back bone in Cassidy. I couldn't get myself to like her. I gave up on this book, but if you're looking for a paranormal romance, here's one to dive into.
Christy Stewart
Warren writes well in the light-hearted scenes but when it comes to anything plot driven it's tedius. She does make use of great myths that most paranormal writers over-look and so I'd be interested in books where those entities are the lead characters. Without that edge, this isn't anything special.

This book poses that eternal paranormal/urban fantasy question... if there are "Other" beings, would you want them to unveil themselves to us humans?

Well, personally, I think I am quite happy with the status quo. Not sure if I can handle knowing that they are really living amongst us in plain sight! But that's just me!
Absolutely entertaining!!! "Put down the crop and step away from the deceased equine," the play on words in this story is laugh out loud funny.

Also ich vergebe ja wirklich sehr, sehr selten unter 3 Sternen, aber hier kann ich einfach nicht anders. Ich bin echt ein wenig geschockt, dass es doch eine Fangemeinde der deutschen Übersetzung gibt, wo das ganze stellenweise gar nicht mehr wie Deutsch wirkt.

Fangen wir mal allein mit der verwirrenden Reihenfolge an. Laut Goodreads ist es der 9. Teil, laut Blanvalet der erste. Anscheinend hat die Autorin die Romane der Reihe auf der Zeitschiene ihrer Welt völlig belie

Auf dieses Buch bin ich durch den Titel aufmerksam geworden. Ich finde es klingt sehr originell und es erinnerte mich von Anfang an ein bisschen an Dornröschen. Wie ich darauf kam weiß ich bis jetzt nicht, aber ich wollte das Buch unbedingt lesen ...

Sometimes, I like nothing more than an easy read that will probably have a good ending, especially when it comes with paranormal romance. WOLF AT THE DOOR caught my eye because the romantic story seemed like fun and because the paranormal story sounded intriguing. It lived up to my expectation and I thought it was an enjoyable and satisfying read.

I also picked up the book because the blurb at the back of the book said “Christine Warren’s spellbinding new series takes you into the enthralling wor

Christine Warren is new to me and I struggled with her writing the first 100 pages or so. Was starting to kick myself for buying so many books in the series before I had read book one. She loves using cliche sayings, pop references and very common phrases twisting them just a little to make them have a paranormal bent. A few of them were pretty funny but after a while it was just too much and didn't add anything to the story. There may have bee

This story basically follows a council of Others, which are all supernatural beings that are invested in the politics of their community. A large meeting brings Sullivan Quinn from Ireland to NYC, along with a couple of other supernaturals from his community. They believe that now is the time to reveal to the world that supernatural beings exist, mainly because an extreme religious group seems to be onto the trail of revealing of their identities themselves. In the meantime, Sullivan falls very ...more

Wolf at the Door is the first installment in what seems to be a really fun, steamy, and interesting series. The characters are interesting, the narrative is funny, and although there's certainly nothing here that hasn't been done before, sometimes tried and true is a good thing.

Quinn comes to New York from Ireland for what amounts to a business trip in the werewolf world. The general consensus in Europe is that the Others should reveal themselves to the rest of the world as soon as possible, so

I read this book via Audio-- The Narrator was Kate Reading.

This was an interesting book--a fun read; Sullivan Quinn, a wolf shape-shifter, has been sent to America to convince the Paranormal council in a course of action he knows they aren't going to like. His focus is derailed when he meets the most delectable woman...

Cassidy Poe is a member of a very powerful family--an unwilling member. She is also a fox woman, adept at hiding. She's built a life in academia in the human world but is dragged

I got this because the second in the series was recommended, and I like to read series in order. It's outside my usual reading - it is romance, but paranormal, with werewolves and fae and foxwomen and werebears and gnomes. Right. The real bonus is that it was read by Kate Reading, who is quickly becoming my really, really favorite narrator, even above [gasp] Davina Porter and Kate Fleming/Anna Fields. She manages to breathe life into characters and humor into stories, doing everything I like abo ...more

Sullivan Quinn has traveled from Ireland to NYC with his delegation to warn of a group that will go to any length to expose/hurt/kill the Others who are vampires, werewolves, etc. to the world. The Others would prefer to unveil themselves instead of having it done so violently by these extreme humans. While at a reception, Sullivan is distracted by the smell of honeysuckle and follows the scent to Cassidy Poe. Cassidy is a world renowned authority on social interaction as well as a Foxwoman.

Reviewed for AAR's Speaking of Audiobooks -

I’d describe Wolf at the Door as a big roasted marshmallow. There’s nothing to really sink your teeth into – just some fluff and some heat. If I were reading this book I would have been bored more than once but listening is another story. Kate Reading is a wonderfully talented narrator and she gave the book exactly what it needed to keep me listening and laughing. There’s a
I liked the book. It was funny and light reading and the heroes were so likable. And shifters were so how i like them for myself. And the story was quite nice.

Like aliens, pictured by 5-year-old. First - the names and the surnames. I always wonder where are they come from. Not from Russia that`s for sure. Ou ...more
