about

She's on the sheriff's most wanted list.

Waking up with a naked woman holding a knife at his throat is just about the last thing Sheriff Travis Flynn expected. And the brother she's looking for? A murderer. And dead. Probably. But the real shock comes when she insists she's not a Lycan.

LeAnn Wilcox isn't looking for love...especially not from some wolf in sheriff's clothing. She operates on the other side of the law. Once she finds her brother-alive-she'll get out of the pack's territory and go back to her regular, normal, non-furry life of changing jobs and her name whenever her past closes in.

The cool, logical Sheriff has finally met his match, but LeAnn's life is at stake if she won't claim her place in the pack, especially once his control over the pack is challenged and her brother's fate is questioned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting twist on shifters I love shifter books so of course I had to pick up this book. Wendy Sparrow is a new author to me and I was really impressed with her storytelling. I loved that this was a truly original story with a new spin on wolf shifters. I also loved the witty dialogue and was mesmerized by the suspense hook in the story. LeAnn and Travis were exasperating at time. I mean I loved them, but they were so much alike, it often drove me crazy every time they disagreed and butted heads. Despite their animosity though, their chemistry was off the charts. I completely enjoyed the story. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

Rated 4 out of 5 by from action packed and lots of laughs! This funny, action packed shifter romance is the story of LeAnn and Travis. LeAnn is looking for her brother - and she's tracked his scent to the territory of one hot and sexy Sheriff. She insists that she isn't a shifter, but regardless Travis knows that they are a scent-match and destined to mate for life. According to Travis, LeAnn's brother is dead, having wreaked havoc on his pack - but she's determined to prove him wrong. Clearing up the mystery won't be easy though, and with challenges all around him, Travis has his hands full, including convincing LeAnn that they belong together. I quite enjoyed catching up with the Rainier and Glacier wolf packs in this story, though it took me a bit to get my bearings and figure out who everyone was again as there are a lot of characters to keep straight. As I read the previous book several months ago, the events of that story weren't fresh in my mind but the author did a fairly good job of catching up the reader such that if they hadn't read any of the previous stories they could soon follow along. One of the more interesting aspects of this story is the world building and the detail of describing the pack psychology. Every author who writes paranormal stories has a responsibility to the reader to make their world interesting but at the same time not overly confusing and this author does a great job with that. You get a clear sense of how the characters fit, what their abilities are and how they interact with the 'normal' world around them. LeAnn is different from your normal shifter - because she doesn't realize that she is one. This is the first time I've come across a character with repressed memories, suffering a form of PTSD. She has blackouts in her memory, time periods where she's started out in one place and ended up in another with no knowledge of what's happened in between. Her estranged half brother is a shifter so she knows about Lycans (wolf shifters) and what their abilities are, but has never been conscious of her own shift so doesn't believe she is one. Yet at the same time she has the other abilities that define one - most notably her very sharp sense of smell (a trait that has a strong part in the story) and her keen eyesight and hearing. In fact, LeAnn's sense of smell makes her an excellent tracker, though she is adamant that it's just a genetic trait and not because she's a Lycan. Her fear of disclosing her memory losses and ending up in an institution means she tries to justify her sharp senses as anything but the idea of being a shifter. From a young age she suffered emotional abuse from her mother who clearly knew what LeAnn would become (her estranged father was a shifter too) and she had some experiences as a teenager that made her subconscious block out memories of shifting to protect her. Because of this, she left home as a teenager, and as a result she's grown up alone, doing her best to survive by whatever means possible (legal or illegal). Meeting Travis and his pack, and the knowledge that she might fit in somewhere finally has a huge impact on her. Despite the more emotional side of LeAnn's story, there is an abundance of humor and many laugh out loud moments. Travis and LeAnn's conversations are hilarious as they poke and prod at each other, and the same goes for Travis's friendship with Jordan, hero of the previous book and Alpha of the Glacier pack. The romance between Travis and LeAnn is a combination of sweet and sexy (though the scenes don't stray too far into the bedroom). Much of the heat between them comes from the sexual tension that neither of them can shake. As the newly minted Alpha of Rainier Pack, Travis still has some challenges ahead of him, especially when he declares LeAnn as his scent-match. With the mystery of whether or not LeAnn's brother really is dead, threats to his leadership and an attraction to LeAnn that he can't stop, Travis has his hands full. This is an action packed story right from the start and doesn't let up. It's a great addition to the series. 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy Over You The cool, logical Sheriff has finally met his match and she’s on Travis Flynn’s most wanted list but LeAnn’s life is at stake, especially with his control over the pack being challenged in this exciting paranormal romance. Wow! Talk about having your life turned upside down and inside out because this is one Sherriff that is completely taken by surprise when a naked woman holds a knife at his throat and the reader can’t help but get drawn into this crazy fun and dangerous story with LeAnn insisting she’s not a Lycan adding quite a bit of confusion. These strong compelling characters take the reader by storm with a romance that quite frankly is off the charts fun since LeAnn is like a miniature tornado on speed (just a little bit on the crazy side) but don’t get me wrong because she’ll capture your heart too and hey she’s just what the sexy alpha needs. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge with lots of suspense, excitement and romance while the chemistry between Travis and LeAnn heats up the pages along with all the flying sparks. Being the sister of someone that pack hates adds lots of tension and excitement throughout the story, especially since everything is not as it seems and everything that happened with their enemy may not be as over as they thought which has the danger escalating and challenges being made. Well written scenes and details bring the story to life making it easy for the reader to get completely caught up in the anticipation while the intriguing events ensure that there is never a dull moment. I have to say that I was completely charmed by Travis and LeAnn’s story and I must warn you to be prepared for moments of spontaneous laughter during tense moments throughout this story and there is some unexpected twists that are sure to keep you guessing.
