As a game warden, Raina Ravenwing has only one mission in the Cascade Mountains: to hunt down a pack of rare wolves that is terrorizing her tribe. Her instant attraction to Slade is a distraction the beautiful wolf whisperer can’t afford, unless she agrees to let him help her. Yet working so closely together only intensifies their passion…even as the unfolding truth of Slade’s identity threatens everything Raina holds sacred.

This book or series of books are unique in my experience in that they are set up as a mini-series similar to what one would find on television.  Or course the reader has to wait much longer then a television viewer to read the next episode.  Because of this fact however I won’t be marking this book down for not standing on its own merits and for leaving so many questions unanswered.
The first thing that drew me to this series of books was the setting.  I am from Washington state so I am familiar with both Seattle’s Underground and the Cascade Mountains.  I do want to give Ms. Meyers kudos on how accurate her depiction of both settings are.   It really drives me nuts when authors don’t do their research on location. 
I also very much enjoyed both the main characters, Slade and Raina.  They are so very real with all their strengths and weakness.  I do wish that Ms. Meyers had been able to dig deeper into their characters but she did a rather complete job for a novella.   I especially enjoyed the dialogue between them.  It was very sharp and witty.   My only issue was their falling in love almost overnight.  It really doesn’t fit what we are shown about either character.
This was actually the first book that I read in this mini-series and it was complete enough that I could easily follow along.  The ending is a cliff-hanger so I will be getting the next book in the series so that I can find out what happens and I do intend to the first two also in this series.
I do recommend this book to any readers that enjoy a quick paranormal romance just be warned that you will be sucked into picking up the rest of the series.  I rate this book a 3.2.
***I did receive this book at no charge from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.  No monies have or will exchange hands.
