Lone wolf Shaun Steven’s automatic response to the words “happily ever after”? Kill me now. Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.
One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.
When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define—something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.
Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done—and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.
It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…
Warning: Two strong wolves getting exactly what they deserve. Includes wilderness nookie, shifters being naughty in public places, the Midnight Sun as a canopy for seduction and grizzly shifters on the loose. Oh, and don’t forget the sarcasm.

For anyone who loves:
Viv’s Granite Lake Wolves
Why did I read it?
Because Viv wrote it.
I have to admit, I’m behind on the Granite Wolf series. And I have to wonder if I should have played catch-up before reading this one. NO, they are tied to one another, they are only set in the same world.
Perhaps it was simply this story arc.
Either way I just couldn’t stop comparing this to Wolf Signs (1st in the Granite Lake Wolves series) and found it wanting.
Now please don’t get me wrong….
I LOVED Shaun and Gem. They were adorable and amazing and totally needed to work on their communication (which totally got solved for them!). I loved seeing their chemistry. I LOVED Caroline and Evan – all I can say is DAMN Caroline can kick some shifter ass!! I love the Granite Lake/Takhini Wolves world….
But I ultimately didn’t like a section of the plot. Maybe I’m discovering one of my buttons? And for them to be such bumbling doofuses? I don’t want to get into much because it would take away from the story.
Anyways, despite this not being my favourite of the GLW world, I’m definitely going to be going back and doing some catch-up AND I’m heading to Viv’s site now to find out when the next Takhini Wolves book will be released!
