In Legal Wolf's Mate, taking on a pro bono murder case isn't a problem for a lawyer who enjoys a challenge. Discovering that his new client is his mate? A tad more complicated. Gavin has no intention of settling down, especially not with a woman accused of murder, but once he sets eyes on Megan, his fate is sealed.

In The Alpha's Woman, Kira Radney has no desire to be a subservient mate. When a member of her father's pack attempts to make her his mate by force, Kira has no choice but to flee. The last thing she wants is to submit to any male and their pack. But when her escape attempt leads her straight into the arms of an alpha wolf-a sexy, dangerous, protective alpha - Kira must fight against her need to be free and her secret desire to be controlled.

In Feral Passions, what better place for an adventurous woman to explore her wild side than a luxurious resort in Northern California's beautiful Trinity Alps? Especially when that resort is run by sexy werewolves looking for mates.

Surprisingly, The Alpha’s Woman was my favorite read in the Growl Anthology. I say “surprisingly” because I read this anthology because Eve Langlais (which didn’t quite work out the way I’d hoped). To be honest, I’d planned to chuck the rest of the book back to the library as a DNF but I decided to thumb through – and I’m glad I did!

Unlike the rest of the stories in this anthology, The Alpha’s Woman had some emotion! It wasn’t just “shifter hookup” but each of the [main] characters had much more depth and motivation. I also loved the glimpses of backstory: it made The Alpha’s Woman feel meatier. I loved that Kira wasn’t standing around waiting for someone to come save her and took charge of her life like an Alpha. I wasn’t a fan of the story of her parents as I felt a little more [plot] was needed here. The mythology was rather interesting – with the exception of it circling back to the Greek/Roman Pantheon [again]. I’m going to read a random book that has non-Greek mythology in it and then immediately die from shock.

I actually spent some time trying to find out if The Alpha’s Woman was turned into a full length and/or a series (nothing so far) because I wanted more. There were so many loose strings and mythology that I really felt more was needed. At least give me an epilogue or something!
