Wolf’s Mate

Celia Kyle. Forever, $7.99 mass market (368p) ISBN 978-1-5387-4452-9
Kyle’s enjoyable first Shifter Rogues paranormal starts fast and never slows down. Wolf shape-shifter Declan Reed may not be the alpha of his Shifter Operations Command (SHOC) black ops team, but he doesn’t hesitate to take the lead when accountant Abby Carter, a cougar the team’s been monitoring, gets cornered by the secret organization determined to eradicate shifters. His instincts tell him that Abby is vital to their understanding of their rival’s plans; more importantly, his attraction and connection to Abby drive him to protect her at all costs. Orphaned as a child, Abby relished her solitary life, particularly after being fostered in Alaska with seal shifters who literally left her to sink or swim. But being on the run with Declan and joining his team make her realize that pack life may be what she’s been missing. Despite an emphasis on action, Kyle doesn’t sacrifice solid character development, including among other members of SHOC, and the sexual tension between Abby and Declan builds to a satisfying climax. Readers of paranormal romance will look forward to future installments. Agent: Holly Root, Root Literary. (Apr.)
