A STORM IS BREWING…
Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown, New Orleans. He’s there with three of his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. One tantalizing scent captures Remy’s senses, forcing him to follow until he is face to face with Triana Bellamy—his beautiful high school crush.
After reconnecting, Remy and Triana are close—very. Remy struggles to keep things casual. Ever since his partner—and first love—was killed on the job, he’s kept women at a distance.
But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy’s protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self…and hope Triana accepts him.
Since it was almost 6 months ago, I read SWAT part 5, I really needed my dosis of hunky wolf men. So I was really happy to receive this ARC from Casablanca books. Paige picks up the story of the goodlooking wolf pack (did I mention hunky and droolworthy…) from Dallas. This time the story takes place in New Orleans, which gives the story a nice new surroundings. Everything can happen in New Orleans, naked guys, spiritual voodoo, you name it.
We meet Triana, while dancing away with her friends, when Remy catches her scent and is immediately drawn to her. Both are shocked to realize, they already know each other from high school. But that doesn’t explain, why Remy is going all alpha male around Triana. Unless… she is THE ONE, as his fellow packmates suggest.
While Remy is not ready to admit this possibility, we certainly have sparks flying between Triana and Remy. But Remy has to keep his wolfish tendencies to himself, because he doesn’t want to scare Triana away. Because, although Triana’s mother has a shop with all kinds of voodoo, spiritual gifts and even a wolf pendant, Triana (as a scientist) is not into believing strange phenomenons, let alone strange creatures as werewolfs.
What she does believe, is that the private detective she has hired, will be able to help solve her father’s murder. Because although her father had some shady businesses, there was no reason to kill him. But as facts about her father’s death become more and more strange and unsettling, Triana’s mother is hassled by some scary guys to give her the wolf pendant. Why is Triana’s mother so determined to hide this pendant? And what was the real reason behind the death of her father? As the truth draws nearer and the scary guys close in, Remy has to do the one thing, he didn’t wish to do: show his claws. Can the scientist in Triana accept Remy’s existence? Or not?
Completely in Paige Tyler style, this one was yet again funny, fastpaced and with the change of scenery, refreshing. And did I mention full of yummy hot werewolfs?
So off course: four out of five stars from me! Already awaiting: Wolf Hunger (Book 7)!
