Born a cowboy and bred a warrior...
High Commander Colt Cavanaugh has spent his life defending his pack and its sprawling ranchlands. But the hardened Grey Wolf soldier has a dark secret that could destroy his life forever.
Belle Beaumont is a wanted woman, on the run from the wolf pack that kidnapped her. When fate brings her face-to-face with the Grey Wolf High Commander himself, rivalry becomes passion, and suddenly more than just her freedom is at stake.
Colt will fight to the death for the healing Belle brings to his battle―worn heart―and for this cowboy wolf, all's fair in love and war...
In Cowboy in Wolf’s Clothing by Kait Ballenger, she invites us back into the Seven Range Shifters world and shares Colt’s story. Colt is High Commander of the Grey Wolf pack. His job is protecting the pack in battle, but the secrets he carries are a heavier burden.
Each of the books in this series will work as standalone, but have carry over with an overall story ARC concerning a threat to the Seven Range shifters way of life and relationships between characters.
Colt is on a mission that turns deadly when he stumbles onto a she-wolf trying to steal his horse.
In the chaos of a vampire attack, Belle Beaumont escapes the Grey Wolf compound only to stumble upon the High Commander. When a vampire attacks and he is wounded their story begins.
For me this story was stronger than the first, in part because I was already comfortable with the world Ballenger had set up in book one, allowing this story to focus on the characters, relationships, and some wicked battles involving Lucas and the Wild Eight.
Both Belle and Colt carry burdens. She longs to belong to a pack; he is ashamed of his past and determined to honor those who raised him. Belle is a doctor, and perfect for Colt as she can see beneath Colt’s brazen exterior. Their romance begins with deals and arrangements and ultimately tugged at my heartstrings.
Secondary characters and the pack added to this story giving it depth and allowed me to feel a part of something. I loved the interaction with the horses, who have personalities of their own. The females of Grey Wolf are head-strong and seeing them tease and torment the alphas was fun. We see more of Wes and Naomi and get developments there. The more I learn of Maverick their leader, the more I respect him.
A little something or should I say sizzle happened between the pack leader’s sister and a rogue wolf… I sensed something and I am hoping the author is dropping a hint of things to come!
The Seven Pack series has pulled me in and I look forward to diving into Wicked Cowboy Wolf, the newest installment set to release in January 2020.Fans of shifters and PNR romance will want to dive into Cowboy in Wolf's Clothing by Kait Ballenger and her #SevenPack series Click To Tweet
