The sub-plot of "A Wolf Within" is verbal and physical abuse. Jane Jamison handles the subject frankly and realistically. As who has witnessed the destruction of this culturally hidden crime. Both the female lead and a supporting character are long time victims. Ms. Jamison shows us how the abuser makes the abused blame themselves. She also shows how each woman reacts and finally reaches the breaking point. Add to this a passionate love story and you have a very great novel to enjoy.
Once you pick up "A Wolf Within" you will not put it down. This is the third book in the Men of Passion, Colorado series. It is easily read as a standalone book. The many alpha personalities found in this authors books make them some of the most interesting stories to enjoy. Pick up one, two, three or more to enjoy on holiday or a long lazy weekend. Each and every one of her books are well worth your time. I’m look forward to reading book four, "Wolf Call" soon. Thank you Ms. Jamison for such an enjoyable afternoon.
