When Mia Stone is asked to consult on a case in the middle of nowhere, she leaps at the chance to escape the disaster that has become her FBI career, while ignoring the threat still pursuing her. Her instincts tell her that the small mining town of Lost Lake is out of the norm, and that’s before she meets the strongest suspect, a sexy and dangerous Seth Volk who draws her in a way she can’t fight.

Seth Volk has enough on his plate without worrying about a sweet and brilliant investigator on his tail. At his heart, he’s a predator, which comes in handy as the enforcer for his family and also his pack. His secret is barely beneath the surface, and if he allows Mia too close, she’ll see the wolf he tries to hide. When an unknown threat comes out of the forest, their only path to survive is with each other, no matter how sharp his bite or how deadly her wit.

Mia Stone, an FBI profiler, agrees to help a small-town sheriff in Lost Lake as she settles her mom and her career after her last case ended with her mother being kidnapped by a serial killer and a disagreement with her colleagues. She is asked to interview a suspect in a recent murder. Seth Volk, didn’t kill the victim, but he takes care of his own and justice will be served.

I love romantic suspense. When you mix in some alpha shifters in a town of mostly shifters, cannot help but be all in.

Wolf unpacks a lot. We have Mia, her mother and aunt who are getting settled in a cabin by the lake, then we have Seth, the pack enforcer and trouble within the pack itself. All of which will lay the groundwork for the series arc.

Mia knows nothing of the shifter world, but she can sense a predator. I loved the tango that they danced. Their attraction felt genuine, and watching these two wrestle for dominance was delightful. Seth is all alpha and his wolf quickly decides Mia is his. Mia believes in the law and will stop at nothing to find the truth, but can she trust Seth?

Mia’s backstory was interesting, and foreshadowing tells us the trouble she left behind is circling. The trouble within the packs is far-reaching, and the tension is building. I look forward to Alpha, the next novel releasing in March 2023.

Fans of shifters, alphas and murder-mysteries will enjoy this action-packed romantic suspense.
