Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Baby, I’m Howling for You is book one in the Alphaville series by Christine Warren. I first read Christine’s Gargoyle series so I was so excited to read this brand new series. Alphaville, or Alpha, Washington, is a small town in the Pacific Northwest, where shifters go that are alone, damaged, or just different. It’s a place where they can go where they know they will be accepted, no questions asked, and find a pack amongst the towns people, a mixture of all different shifters who come together ...more

Baby, I’m Howling For You by Christine Warren is the first full length novel in the Alphaville series. There is a prequel novella that opened up the series that came before this book but it’s not really necessary to have read that to enjoy this installment of the series. The novella simply introduced readers to the town of Alphaville where shifters have set up a safe haven for all types of shifters to come and live in harmony. The main characters are different between the books though so that ea ...more

I liked it, it was enjoyable but it had it fluctuated in keeping my attention. Renny, is on the run from a crazy coyote and his pack.

Traumatized, stalked and attempt rape (more than once) does make for the right mind space to fall for an uber alpha, controlling wolf.

I received this ARC copy of Baby, I'm Howling for You from St. Martin's Press. This is my honest and voluntary review. Baby, I'm Howling for You is set for publication Jan 30, 2018.

I picked up Baby, I am Howling for You by Christine Warren after reading Carrie @ Carrie's Book Reviews review of the prequel novella for this series! Once that I saw that Carrie gave a fantastic rating for a novella I knew this series was worth checking out! This novel grabbed my attention from the start! I have not read much werewolf/shifter novels but after reading this one, I am definitely reading more! I also will be following this series and wanting to get my hands on the novella as well!😍 ...more

When I first noticed this book on NetGalley I skipped right past it due to the dreadful corny title but then I noticed all the reviews were 4 and 5* so I decided to give it a try.

I really should have stuck with my first impression. I don’t know if it was me or the book but it just didn’t work for me, it dragged and took me days and days to read in fact I ended up skimming just to get to the end.

I didn’t particularly like the writing style and there wasn’t enough story to fill the pages.

So you either love a book or you don't but I was really bummed that this book didn't instantly pull me in as much as I wanted it to. Shifter and PNR books usually rate high for me because of the fantasy the author weaves into the story. It's romance with a heavy dose of magic and it has more freedom to be OTT and dramatic.

The reason I didn't rate this higher is that it hit on one of my ultimate pet peeves in romance. The dead wife trope. In shifter romances it's especially tricky because the bi

I liked it...well, sorta, kinda, nearly liked it...

I really liked the storyline and thought the characters were interesting. My biggest problem with Baby, I'm Howling For You was that it was too long and overly descriptive. I didn't see anything new in this paranormal romance and waited unsuccessfully for it to suck me in. Unfortunately, it was overly descriptive and each plot point, conversation and sex scene lost me halfway through it. I'm reading about how he wants to kill her stalker and by
4 stars.
My first book by Christine Warren and I really enjoyed this paranormal romance.
I am ok with the dead wife issue unlike some of my friends just the same as I believe in second chances- the ability of us as humans(or wolves in this case) to survive heartbreak and open up our hearts to love again is a courageous and hopeful thing in my opinion.
I liked Alphaville as the town of misfits, all the characters were well developed and fun to read. Renny's plight as the single red wolf desperate t

Renny is trying desperately to reach the town of Alpha, Washington before her pursuers reach her. Alphaville is a shifter community that takes in all kinds of lone shifters and they look out for each other. With a crazy coyote stalker and his enforcers chasing her for months and running her out of every town she settles at, she needs a safe place to go.

When Renny's car runs out of gas she has no choice but to shift and run towards Alphaville, just as she reaches the outskirts, the enforcers cat

Baby, I'm Howling for You is the perfect book if you are in the mood for a guilty pleasure paranormal romance. This book was a book filled with protective alpha males, steamy sex scenes, and intense action.

One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the characters. I really liked the wide cast of characters and how developed they were. The author clearly really cares for all of the characters, and that love was showcased throughout the story. I cannot wait to read more about this ecl

It's been quite a while since I have read a werewolf book, and even longer since I have read Christine Warren. I can't say why other than I am behind on her series and I just haven't had time to catch up lately. Anywho, I really like the premise of this new series she has created in Alpha, Washington - a town full of misfit shifters who don't quite fit in elsewhere or with packs of their own kind.

Baby, I'm Howling for You had a lot of things that got me excited for this novel and series in general.
+ Heroine is a librarian. Go bookworms!
+ Set in a town for misfit shifters. I expected a lot of quirky characters.
+ Shifters. Rawrrr. I honestly don't know why they are sexy but they just are. Must be that animal magnetism thing. ;)

I recently read a novella set in the town of Alphaville and if honest was a little disappointed but I nevertheless thought I'd give this full length story a go. Happily it has a lot more meat to it with a wolf shifter trying to escape her stalker and those who work for him. Plus it starts with a bang as Renny quite literally falls at the feet of her Mate ! Now I'm not always a huge fan of that predictable trope but I did like that Mick has a backstory that freakishly connects with the situation ...more
From the very start this is an action packed paranormal novel with well developed characters and a totally engaging plot. It is one of those books that, once you’ve started, you really don’t want to put down until you’ve found out what happens - so don’t say I haven’t warned you! Renny Landry, a red wolf, is desperately trying to reach Alphaville before her pursuers capture her. After escaping from her stalker, Geoffrey Hilliard, he has sent his coyote shifters to bring her back to him. When she ...more

Renny Landry is on the run and she knows just where she is going. Somewhere where a lone wolf shifter on the run may have a chance of a brand new life: Alphaville. Alphaville is supposed to be a town where a shifter can find sanctuary no matter what animal they turn into and that's exactly what Renny needs right now

Renny is on the run from a crazed coyote stalker and seeking safe haven in the aptly named town of Alphaville. There she finds Mick and this magical insta-mating thing occurs. Mick is kind of dark and damaged after the loss of his previous mate. Renny is sweet and optimistic despite the drama in her life. You'd think this would equate to angst heavy, but it really didn't. I quite enjoyed the steamy romance between the two.

The setting of Alphaville was pretty cool. I liked the idea of this seclu

Title: Baby, I'm Howlin For You by Christine Warren

First, it has to be admitted that the title for this first entry of the Alphaville series is kind of cheesy but besides that, it embodies some of my favorite PNR characters/elements that I love to read about.

Female red wolf, Renny Little Red Landry is on the run and she is doing everything she possibly can just to stay alive. As for character, Renny would be considered a typical leading female in a Paranormal Romance, but I feel that her charac

This author does paranormal romance just right. Plenty of page-turning action along with some secondary characters I look forward to seeing again. Mick and Renny are perfect for each other in every way. It was so much fun reading about these wolves along with some other shifters. This is the first book to kick off the series of Alphaville. I can't wait to see what's in store for us next. ...more

I'm literally only giving this two stars because Molly is pretty cool and Marjory is pretty cool.

This book was something of a physically painful experience in why I stopped reading the vast majority of paranormal romance.

This is one series I can’t get enough of already! Renny is on the run and makes her way to Alphaville, a town full of shifters. Being one herself, the first resident she meets is her mate, a lone wolf named Mick. Mick isn't looking for his mate, he just want to be alone. He can't help letting Renny get under his skin or the need to protect her. The two have chemistry and light up the pages when they are together.

On the run from a stalker, Renny lands in Alphaville at the one place she never expected to find: the home of her mate. Too bad her mate doesn't want her.

OK, so that's the premise of the book and I was really hoping it would be a juicy story. The blurb certainly hinted at one, it just didn't deliver. A few witty moments, likeable if somewhat textbook characters, the potential for a good story. Unfortunately it just didn't do it for me. 2.5 stars

I like shifter/werewolf books. I like shifter/werewolf romances even more. Unfortunately, finding a good solid shifter/werewolf romance is a dime a dozen. I have reviewed the good, the bad and the ugly. I have become very picky about what I read because of the duds I have met. I can say with absolute certainty that Baby, I’m Howling for You is one of the good ones.

I was excited to return to Alphaville as the prequel novella was a great introduction to the series. In this novel we once again meet a heroine who flees to Alphaville for sanctuary as the town has a reputation and history for taking in persecuted and lone shifters in need. Here we meet Renny and Mick. I thoroughly enjoyed this PNR novel as I felt they both had sizzling chemistry and great banter. I could not get enough!

Christine Warren is a new-to-me author so I didn't know what to expect but the romance stories about wolves always fascinates me so I picked this one. Thankfully the author didn't disappoint. My fascination with wolves and about their romance still fascinates me. I love it.
Though Ms. Warren broke a rule in here. We all know about wolves having but one mate for the rest of their lives and that's really what I liked best in their romance. But it seems Mick, our alpha
