What a fun book! It grabbed my interest and kept it. (causing me to stay up too late, only to find myself reading before work and ended up late for work) The characters were off beat, intriguing and anything but boring. Yes, a serious issue was brought up in this story (domestic violence) but the entire story was light and infused with humor. The werewolf world that was described is unique. It’s structure was explained well and was incorporated into the story in a seamless fashion. This book is part of a series but it’s not necessary to read any of the previous books to completely enjoy this one. However, you may want to read them too as this one is so entertaining that I’m sure the others are equally as good. I can’t imagine a better paranormal book to read.
Anna Moder isn’t her real name but it’s the one she’s using right now so she tries to hide from her abusive husband. For the past 4 years, she’s worked as a doctor in a small town populated with werewolves. It was interesting and Anna really enjoyed her work but she needed to move on before her ex found her. Now she’s working as a checker in a small town grocery store. Upon leaving work, she’s witness to a shooting. Reacting, she grabs the guy and starts racing towards the nearest hospital. Caleb convinces her not to take him to the hospital. Soon, he’s healed letting Anna know that he’s a werewolf. She’s not trusting him though and he’s making excuses to keep her close. What it going on? And, can Anna trust this mysterious man? Can she outrun her ex?
Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger only to discover he’s really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don’t faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she’s known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham—that’s a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.
The problem is—Caleb employs his lupine tracking abilities as a notquite- legal bounty hunter, and Anna is suspicious of both him and his profession. On the run from her past, with old problems closing in, she’d like to stay far, far away from anybody with connections to the law. Caleb, however, seems determined to keep her close. Are his intentions noble, or is he working a more predatory angle?
Anna’s been dreaming of returning to a semi-normal life, but now she’s experiencing a strange new urge . . . to join Caleb in running with the wolves.
