Product Description: Amazon

He roams the moonlit wilderness, his every sense and instinct on high alert. Changeling wolf Connor Macleod and his Pack have never feared anything--until the night human Zoey Tyler barely escapes a rogue werewolf's vicious attack.

As the full moon approaches, Zoey has no idea of the changes that are coming, and only Connor can show her what she is, and help her master the wildness inside. With her initiation into the Pack just days away and a terrifying predator on the loose, the tentative bonds of trust and tenderness are their only weapons against a force red in tooth, claw... and ultimate evil.

New in town Zoey gets attacked by a wolf and is barely holding him off when the town vet happens upon them. The wolf runs off and Conner saves the woman. Of course, true to the life-mate trope they are immensely drawn to each other. Hooking up is one thing but when he spills the beans about his personal issues she pushes him away. Had she not grown with a family of famous psychics and a fair share of ability herself they may never have hooked up. Even worse Connor thought he had treated her (were) wolf bite but learns otherwise and now she'll become a wolf.

In the "life-mate" trope it seems common for the hero and/or heroine to say or feel Mine in response to a real threat or a teasing brother. Connor is no exception, but it doesn't help him understand what's going on between himself and Zoey. He flip flops on her a couple of times, and it, rightly ticks her off.

The bad guy is a very old wolf in a very old human form body. He is crazed although I don't believe we are ever told why, or why he has it out for Connor and his family.

The relationship between the life mates progresses fairly quickly and grows very solid. The characters are not different form expectation. It's nicely written, and an enjoyable read but the story wasn't mind blowing. There are a few twists operating withing the story that we do not usually see, for example some of the story is placed in the context of her job as the editor of the local newspaper; but it is a bit heavy on predictability as far as outcome. It is hard to put down due to the active pace and the great sex scenes. I just learned that Connor MacLeod, the vet, shares his name with the Highlander character.

Enjoyable & well-written: a good read.
