"A Compelling Shapeshifter Romance"

This is Sue Krinard's first shapeshifter book. This takes place in contemporary times. Joelle has been haunted by the deaths of her parents 12 years before. They crashed in a small plane in the Canadian Rockies, and now she's left her job and home to find them, say good-bye, and lay her past to rest. She comes to a small town not far from where she thinks her destination is, and finds that her guide has deserted her with all her equipment, and there isn't much time before the snow starts to find someone new. The only one available appears to be Luke, a loner with compelling eyes who has been making a point of running into Joelle at every chance.

I liked the book a lot, and found it to be a very compelling romance. That's saying a lot because I don't normally like shapeshifters (except Joy's REJAR / MINE TO TAKE). The book is long, which I liked, so you get to learn a lot about the H/H, especially Luke and the shapeshifters in general. The book had a lot of atmosphere in it too; you really get the feel for the places that Joelle experiences. I also liked the toughness of the heroine. She stands up to an alpha male every chance she gets, and leaves him in a puddle half the time.

I've also read TOUCH OF THE WOLF. The two stories don't impact each other except that the shapeshifters are from the same universe, so you don't have to worry about which order you read them in.

SUMMARY

Through with running from the past, Joelle Randall has come to the rugged Canadian Rockies determined to face her pain and begin anew. All she needed was a guide to lead her through the untamed mountain wilderness to the site where her parents' plane had crashed so long ago. But the only guide Joelle could find was Luke Gevaudan, a magnetically attractive loner with the feral grace of a wolf and eyes that glittered with a savage intensity. She couldn't know that Luke was the stuff of legends, one of the last survivors of an ancient race of werewolves... a man whose passion she would not be able to resist--no matter how terrible the price.
