ARC received for review

I've only read one other book in this series, but each one is a stand alone with over lapping characters.

This is an older woman and man romance (both are in their 60s), but it never seems like they are old. Must be all the shifter blood that keeps them young. Elise is the mama to the alpha and Mikhail is older brother to another member of the pack. Elise's previous mate was an arsehole to the nth degree and (view spoiler). Mikha

So many feels…

I believe this is the last story in the Salvation Pack series, I hope that isn’t true, but if it is what a great way to end things with Mikhail and Elise! These characters have always been supportive of their family and seeing them find love makes my heart happy. They are older, perhaps wiser, but no matter the age, deserving of love, of each other…

Release Day Review! Wolf of Her Own (Salvation Pack #9) N. J. Walters!  

Mikhail Matheson came to Salvation for his sister, but he stayed for Elise LaForge. She’s the alpha’s mother and the most fascinating woman he’s ever laid his eyes on. He’s wanted her from the first moment he saw her. He may feel like an outsider in the pack, but there’s no way he can leave when he’s sure Elise is his mate. Elise’s made a home in North Carolina with her adult sons and their pack. It’s taken her a long time

Let me start with the author's disclosure of 'each book in the Salvation Pack series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed in any order'. Yeah, I vote no on that one. Each book builds on each other and while you MAY read them out of order, you really should start from the beginning. Especially before getting to this book, because without prior knowledge, you won't know what Elise went through. Heck, what any of the characters went through but mainly Elise.

Happy endings. Don't you just love t

One of the things I really hate to do is read books out of order. So what did I do with this one? You guessed it, read it out of order. Way out of order. It's book #9! I don't know where my mind was when I agreed to review this one.

I guess the craziness going on with my very ill mother is playing around with my mind. But since I did I went along for the ride.

Mikhail moved to Salvation for family, his sister, but she isn't the reason he stayed. Elisa is. Her son is the alpha and she herself fascinates Mikhail. He's wanted her since first laying eyes on her. He knows he's an outsider, something he really can't forget, but he refuses to leave without his mate.

Elisa is at peace now in her new home with her grown sons, but the past can never be completely forgotten, at least not the abuse she suffered at the hands of her mate. She's safe and content, but

3 1/2 to 4

Good read. It seemed to go a tad slow. I know it had to, to be realistic. Elise went through abuse and it would take time to overcome it. Mikhail was a saint, a true saint, to be so patient and put off his gratification like he did. He was every girl’s dream he put Elise first in all things and needs. Now they both were middle aged, but they were written like they were not.

Good read. Received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

Even though I stayed up until 2:30 am reading, I actually saved the final three chapters for this morning. I had finally reached the point in the book where I felt confident that Mikhail and Elise were going to get their happily ever after. Yes, my friends, the mere knowledge that N.J.

Rating: 4.5/5

Aww . . . Mikhail is such a brilliant character - definitely an Alpha but so patient and caring yet strong and resilient!  He’s brought up his sister and she’s the initial reason he’s in Salvation but he’s stayed after seeing Elise LaForge and being attracted to her. However, he doesn’t act on that attraction as she is the mother of the pack Alpha and her now dead mate was extremely abusive so she’s definitely not looking for another mate - in fact she’s an expert at keeping herself

Yay, older characters finding love! OK they might look like they are my age but they are werewolves so are actually in their 60's!

Mikhail has been living with the Salvation Pack since his sister married into it. He feels he should move on now she is settled but something is holding him back...or should that be someone. Elise is everything he wants in a mate but she is the Alpha's mother. She is also a domestic abuse survivor. He really wants to brink that fecker back to life so he can kill him h

Salvation Pack #9

You know that story that ends and you wish you could stay with the characters just a little bit longer? I felt that I would have liked to stay with Mikhail and Elise…and the rest of the Salvation Pack…and gotten to know them all a bit better….perhaps become their friends or a member of their pack. I suppose that means I will need to see if I can find the first eight books in the series so I *can* get to know them better ;)

This is one of my absolute favorite series and this is the book I had been “patiently” waiting for. Mikhail and Elise were just a sweet couple. Mikhail being Rina’s brother and Elise being the alpha, Jacques mom. Jacques dad was a real piece of work and treated his family horrible. The abuse Elise went through at the hands of that man was heart wrenching. Mikhail is so protective and patient with her that it makes my heart happy.

~I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.~

This is the 9th book of the Salvation Pack series. I must say, this is a book that is really worth waiting for.

From the start, till the end, I was so giddy with each turn of the page. There was the right amount of conversation, and thoughts, that it did not overwhelm each of the scene in every chapter.

What touched my heart, was the purity of the emotions Mikhail and Elise as you progress. The

This delightful addition to the Salvation Pack Series by N.J. Walters left me with a giant smile and a bounty of euphoric feels. "Wolf of Her Own" is a heartening story of second chances for two characters who'd assumed the time for love and happiness had passed. As a longtime fan of this series, I enjoyed the story of the Alpha's mother (Elise LaForge) and Rina's brother (Mikhail Matheson) finding each other. Most of the book depicts Elise's daunting struggle to overcome an abusive past and to ...more
Wolf of Her Own was a delightful read and the romance that had been hinted at in prior books didn’t disappoint. It was in fact charming and sweet – a nice change from the usual insta-love/mate often found in paranormal romances. That doesn’t mean it didn’t have it’s share of sexiness. There is no doubt that Mikhail is a strong virile alpha wolf but when it comes to Elise, he just wants to cuddle up and get cozy. Elise was forced at a young age to mate with the Alpha in charge of her pack who was ...more

This book was definitely not what I expected but turned out to be a wonderful read. Both characters are older and Elise has had a past history of abuse, so watching these two find each other and happiness was very satisfying.

Mikhail and Elise proved to be perfect for one another. Mikhail had the patience of a saint – knowing enough about Elise’s past to give her space and the time she needed, but also knowing when to press a bit so they could move forward. With Elise being the mother of the pack

I have loved the Salvation Pack series from the beginning, and I was so excited to see that Elise gets the happy ending she’s so deserved for so many years. Elise is a strong woman, she had to be to survive her abusive mate (who got everything that piece of crap deserved in an earlier book) – it might not be easy to see her as a strong woman but it shows in so many small and important ways. She’s a mother, a grandmother and a vital part of the Salvation Pack. She mig

In this new opus in the Salvation Pack series, we have something that rarely happens in romances: the characters are not youngsters just starting adult life. The heroine is in fact the mother of the alpha and hero from the first volume! Just that deserves a good point.

Wolf of Her Own by N.J. Walters is part of the Salvation Pack Series. I was excited to be able to read an early copy. One reason is I enjoy paranormal romance including the Salvation Pack Series in the past. More importantly this was a couple especially the female lead who had some maturity and grace. It was a good story just not the great one I was looking forward to reading.

I loved this book! Elise is the mother of the alpha of the pack and has one other older son. She is no longer with their father, who was very abusive to her. While everyone in the pack loves her, she is very lonely with no man in her life. Enter Mikhail, an older wolf, who had thought to never have a family of his own. He has been attracted to Elise since he first set eyes on her and the time has come to act on his desires.

I’m a little sad to say goodbye to this wonderful and interesting group of characters. While I’m happy that everyone ultimately gets their HEA, I could read a bunch more of these stories and not get tired. Each tale has its own little spin on werewolf romance.

We met Mikhail in the previous story about his sister’s arrival in the pack. Even if you have no experience with this world and the characters in it, you could probably still start here (and then go back and read them all!). Mikhail isn’t e

This is an older woman and man romance yet they do not seem old in anyway during this story. Elise is the mother to the alpha and Mikhail is the older brother to another member of the pack. Elise’s dead mate was a horrible man and because of that, it makes her leery to trust and let another man into her life again. Mikhail sees Elise and knows he wants her yet because of what happened to her in the past, he has to move slow and show her that he is worth that 2nd chance. This romance seemed to ta

The Salvation pack has lived in relative peace for a decade, since eliminating the threat from the Louisiana pack. Elise, Jacque and Louis LaForge's mother, has found a new home in her son's pack, gaining new self confidence and learning about her strengths. Mikhail is the older brother of Sage's mate, and his attraction to Elise could get him in deep trouble if she doesn't return his feelings. As these two grow closer, Elise is surprised to discover her sensual nature is still alive in her, and ...more

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

I had not read any of the previous books so I felt comfortable saying this can be read as a stand alone book. There is a huge group of people in the pack but it is easy to follow along if you don't have any previous knowledge of these pack members.

Mikhail was such a great character who fell for Elise and was so patient and kind as he wanted to woo her yet knew that she was abused by her previous mate. He knew that he could not rush her and so the be
So sweet. Mikhail, the brother of Rina (Sage's mate) came to the Salvation Pack for his sister. He's staying indefinately but not quite a permanent member of the pack. Elise, Jacque & Louis mother, was brutally abused by her mate, their father for years. She's fragile, sweet and kind.

She knows Mikhail has been watching her but she's afraid to even think of ever mating again. Still she's powerfully attracted. Mikhail is patient and undemanding but constant in his desire to take things at her

This is the story of Mikhail Matheson who has moved to Salvation to be near his sister, but he sees someone else there who could be his mate, Elise LaForge, problem is she has adult sons, one of which is the Alpha of the pack and her life was full of abuse from her mate.

Thanks Netgalley for a ARC to read and give my opinion.

Mikhail is brought to the Salvation pack because of his ties to his sister, but the mother of the Alpha is his reason for staying. Intending to court her slowly and to make her his own.
Elise is the mother of the Alpha and has been single since the death of her first mate. He was abusing and cruel to her for the length of their mating. Mikhail arouses feelings in her that she isnt sure of, and he makes it known to her that he is willing to
