Riley is your normal woman but one night she's nearly attacked only be saved by Derek. A cop but also an Alpha werewolf. He and a few of his friends keep the streets safe but when he saves Riley.... everything changes, there is something about her that he's drawn to.

I'm in love with Derek. He's a great leading man for sure and Riley is perfect for him! This story kept me flipping pages way past my bedtime, the formatting was a little weird but it's an ARC and I'm sure it will be fixed, so no wor

Welcome back to Seattle, where an alpha wolf who is also a detective has to choose between a woman and the secrets he keeps. Can he do that when vampires have invaded his city, and his pack is the only thing holding them at bay? And when the woman he falls for becomes the bait to lure him into a deal with the fanged hordes?

I wrote this book due to reader requests for me to tell Derek's story. He didn't get the girl in my novel Immortal Redeemed, and readers asked me to give him a worthy potentia

When I discovered there would be another werewolf story from Linda Thomas-Sundstrom before the Nocturne line closes, I was overjoyed as her concept for these beings is one of my all-time favorites. From their unique traits to devotion to their chosen mates, her male werewolves are swoon-worthy and make exceptional heroes. In CODE WOLF, a werewolf and human are strongly drawn to each other, but a relationship between them could have disastrous results. As battles are fought and hearts are on the ...more

With so many paranormal fantasy books out today, it's hard to find a new intriguing one with an out-of-the ordinary plot, but Linda Thomas-Sundstrom does it again, giving us a totally different kind of PNR book. Yes, it has werewolves and vampires, but it's also a love story between 2 of the main characters Riley a young woman who is a psychologist and Derek who is a werewolf but who helps out the local law. At first, Derek is out to protect Riley from the vampires that seem to have targeted her ...more

I loved Riley and Derek’s story! I have to say it is one of my favorites! I found the book to be so enlightening. I really enjoyed the tie-in with the Immortal Knights series. I believe you can enjoy this story as a standalone but I definitely encourage people to read the entire series. This is a fast-paced, action-packed PNR with a lot of hunky werewolves. I cannot wait for the next book to come out!

the imprinting phenomenon... 5 FURRY HEARTS

It was a particularly feral type of hunger. Got to love those perks, though... HOWLING FANGS & FUR! WHAT A FANGASMIC BOOK & A HALF! With this well written, dynamically engrossing and impossible to put down book, Linda has outdone herself yet again! I love, Love, LOVE it!!! From the very beginning I was caught up in Derek & Riley's story, mesmerized, completely held captive in their deeply enriched story and loving every single spine tingly,

This was another really interesting werewolf book by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom. The story set up in the first few pages is a bit wordy, but it paints a picture of an intriguing world of supernatural beings in modern day Seattle. I love these urban paranormal romances because of the contrast between modern culture and an ancient, secret type of creature like a werewolf or vampire. The set-up about the vampire queen ruling Seattle really sucked me in.

I really liked the immediate sexual tension betwee

When I am really hungry for a good paranormal I turn to this author knowing she will deliver. Needing also the alpha male in this one to be a strong one she did deliver. Derek is one that had to come out to be followed more. In this one you get behind him and do not let go wanting to know where he will go especially when he encounters more than just what he has been chasing. Being also on the side of the law that helps more than just the norm even though many do not know that one special one wil ...more

I really loved this book. Already a fan of Linda's werewolves, Code Wolf is another fantastic read in a super lineup of Were stories that are fresh and unique. Detective Derek Miller, alpha of the Seattle pack has troubles all around, with the rising vampire population preying on humans in his district. He's working hard to deal with those vampires. So when Riley Price, a psychologist new to Seattle shows up under the full moon and she and Det Miller meet under unusual circumstances, the whole s ...more

Please tell me there's more!!
That's the only issue I have against this story. I didn't want it to end!

There are a shipload of questions I need answered.

Was Riley able to rid herself of the other soul?

Did the vampire Prime tell the truth?

Were Derek & Riley able to produce any adorable Were-babies?

And there are more questions on my list.


I NEED TO KNOW!!!

Derek and his fellow werewolves pack patrol the night in Seattle protecting human from vampires. But when he saves Riley his wolf imprints on her. But things are about to come out Riley is she wolf with the soul of a vampire. Great book with some twist and turns to regular shifter books. Very enjoyable book.

Lucy Pearson.

I enjoy shifter books and I really liked this one so I will be reading the series. Derek Miller is not only Alpha of his pack but also a police detective. He meets Riley Price when she is attacked by a drunk. The story gets exciting from this point on. If you like shifters, then this is a must read for you.

When Riley hears what she thinks is a wolves howl in the night she just has to investigate..
What she finds is more than she bargains for.
When she meets Seattle police officer Derek Miller sparks fly..
And she discovers she is much more than she thinks. And so is he.
Great new read by Linda.. If you like shifter stories this one is for you

Linda had me wound pretty tight til the end. Riley and Derek make a very strong Alpha Pair. Not knowing what really happened to her mother, Riley was unaware of her heritage. I love how Linda brought her into the Were World. While she exhibited strong female traits, she was a surprise to the entire pack when she emerged.

Derek has been up against the Vampire Queen before, he isn’t about to let her get hold of his mate. The battle between vampires and werewolves comes to a head when the queen wan
