This delicious m/m erotic paranormal romance continues an intriguing series that focuses on the relatively rare gay wolf-shifters in a particular pack. Another very unusual couple of males have to find a way to become comfortable with one another and fortunately have the sexy Alphanta Cole Harker, featured in the previous novella, to use as an example of the benefits of following one’s heart. There is a fun depiction of a sport that I am completely unfamiliar with, polo, as well as the poignant introduction of another male who is searching for his identity. This author’s characters are always such great examples of the importance of finding a way to be comfortable in your own skin and the combination of suspense and heat in this story is a wonderful combination. I always look forward to discovering what new relationships Ms. Lain will reveal in another of her creative stories and hope that we get a chance to learn even more about this particular wolf pack and those who are connected to it.
“Wolf in Gucci Loafers” by Tara Lain continues the saga of the subset of the wolf-shifter clan which is featured in the series, ‘Tales of the Harker Pack’. Lindsey Vanessen is the pampered scion of a wealthy family but, although he is open about his preference for males, he must keep his half-werewolf nature secret. His propensity to protect those around him causes him to take on an alter-ego but he never imagined that this would put him into contact and conflict with his mate, policeman Seth Zakowsky, who definitely would frown at Lindsey’s actions, let alone the complications of having a relationship with a guy who gets furry and runs on four feet occasionally.
Sequel to The Pack or the Panther
Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love him back—an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery, Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can't have.
Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.
