The Wolf Within is an intriguing combination of paranormal romance and romantic suspense. The Para-unit of the FBI is out to find and contain the “monsters” of the paranormal world. But after being bitten by a werewolf and turned, Duncan MacGuire finds his world turned upside down. It becomes hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys, and impossible to know who to trust. All except for pretty little Dr. Holly Young. Duncan had been drawn to Holly when he was human, now that he contains a wolf her draw is undeniable. Not only does the man want Holly, but so does the wolf.
Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He’s big, he’s strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can’t handle. Of course, that’s because his predatory instincts are no metaphor-he’s a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There’s only one chink in his armor. Unlike most alpha dogs, Lucas has a reputation for protecting the weak and innocent. Sarah King is counting on that protective impulse-it’s the only thing standing between her and certain death. There are only two problems: one, she’s not quite as innocent as she’d like Lucas to believe. And two, if he doesn’t stop stoking Sarah’s animal lust, it’s only a matter of time before her own wild side gets unleashed . . .
Dr Holly Young has a secret. She’s not exactly human any more. She is dead, or undead. Transformed into a vampire a year ago, Holly has fought her attraction to Duncan, afraid of what might happen if she lets her emotions run free, but now she has no choice. She and Duncan are bound together by something stronger than just blood. It seems as if it’s the two of them against the rest of the world. No one to trust. Not even the brother who raised her. And a war between the paranormals and the humans on the horizon.
I absolutely couldn’t put down The Wolf Within. The suspense was edge of your seat and gripping, but also a little confusing. Holly’s brother Pate is a master manipulator and if I was Duncan I think I would have taken a bite out of his hide. The Wolf Within constantly keeps you guessing as to who the real bad guys are, and I will tell you I certainly didn’t see what was coming!
A fast paced, hot and steamy, paranormal/romantic suspense novel, The Wolf Within is a must read for lovers of this genre. Complex characters and plot lines, unexpected revelations and secrets galore abound in The Wolf Within
