The Wolf Is Mine

Paige Tyler. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $8.99 mass market (368p) ISBN 978-1-72824-878-3

With signature tongue-in-cheek humor, paranormal action, and plenty of sizzle, Tyler’s 13th Special Wolf Alpha Team romance (after Rogue Wolf) does not disappoint. For nine months, S.W.A.T. has had a feline mascot, a cat who seems to have adopted the entire Dallas-based shifter team as her own—but especially Connor, whose bed she curls up in every night. Connor is concerned when Kat disappears—and is thrown for a loop when she returns on two legs and informs all that she’s actually a powerful witch. Kat’s feline alter ego isn’t a choice; four years ago she was cursed by a power-hungry warlock after he killed the rest of her coven. He’d intended to keep her as a familiar, but she managed to escape with her life, a tail, and up to two precious weeks a year in human form. It’s a shock, but Connor can’t deny the sizzling attraction between him and human Kat. Meanwhile, teens have been disappearing and dying under mysterious circumstances, and the crimes may be connected to Kat’s dark past. Kat’s story was quite a few books in the making, and Tyler pays it off wonderfully. Fan-favorite characters also flit in and out, creating a strong sense of coming home. Series fans will be delighted. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary. (Jan.)
