Lone wolf Shaun Stevens’s automatic response to the words "happily ever after"? "Kill me now." Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.

One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.

When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her caribou research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define-something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.

Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done-and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.

It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…


We met Shaun in the Granite Lake series and somehow now it’s the start of a new series, kinda spin off from the other great wolves and Shaun is starting to find his place in this pack.
I liked him from some moments in the books, since he’s usually pretty fun to have around and a great guy to ask for help sometimes he showed up and managed to save somebody or escape to don’t sniff anyone.
He’s getting restless after all he’s friends managed to find a mate and now he’s pretty much alone and dealing with the new Alpha for the Takhini pack. But everything changed when he found his mate and the relationship started pretty great, but she’s a rich girl and daddy gave her the moon, but she’s trying to work by herself and show everyone she’s a good wolf.
Not what I expected for Shaun, basically he was stuck with a pretty girl and he’s a funny guy to have around but not to introduce to daddy, so these two had to learn and accept the other side, for help or even for companionship.
Gem got in trouble, but that wasn’t her fault and she’s more than just a princess, and she was very good in the wild. Shaun didn’t showed a huge difference from the start but I liked how he adapted to Gem and tried to focus on her more than anything. It was a good book.
