Loving the Wolf

Paige Tyler. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $8.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-1-72824-881-3

Tyler packs both action and gentle heat into her 14th Special Wolf Alpha Team romantic thriller (after The Wolf Is Mine). At 13, Jenna Malone witnessed her sister Hannah’s kidnaping at the hands of a monster—but no one believed her. Ten years later, Jenna, now a special effects makeup artist, continues hunting for Hannah, even when that search takes her into some of the seedier parts of Los Angeles. After a brief sighting of Hannah in a skid row homeless encampment, Jenna begs her brother Connor, a Dallas SWAT member and (unbeknownst to Jenna) a werewolf, for help—and is turned down. But Connor’s packmate Trevor McCall is willing to step up. Despite Connor’s insistence that Trevor stay away from his baby sister, Trevor’s convinced that Jenna is his fated mate. As he and Jenna investigate, they discover that something supernatural is targeting the unhoused and the danger ramps up. Familiar faces from previous installments add charm while heart-pounding action keeps the pages turning. Tyler’s fans will be easily drawn back into the world of alpha officers and those who love them. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary (May)
