4 out of 5 stars

Investigative reporter Rayna Ford is sent to the small community of Wolf's Creek to write an expose on a town supposedly over run with werewolves. Assuming the inhabitants to be under a mass delusion, she learns quickly that all isn't as it seems. Their plans involve more than a newspaper article and her life hangs in the balance as their motive for luring her to them is revealed. Garrett Kincaid knows a thing or two about werewolves. He is one. After leaving his pack, he's spent the last twelve years pretending to be something he isn't. His closely guarded secret threatens to destroy him when he meets Rayna Ford, the woman his wolf has claimed as his own. When he learns the pack has lured Rayna to them in order to get to him, he races to Wolf's Creek to protect her from the very thing he fears the most. Himself. The power struggle within the pack becomes clear once Garrett reaches his old home and learns of the pack's plans for Rayna. The beast lurking beneath his skin is torn between protecting the woman he wants to call mate and keeping the balance within the pack on neutral ground. When choosing a side no longer matters, he does what he must to save his mate, even if that means making one of the most difficult decisions of his life.

Rayna is a reporter/journalist. She comes to a crime scene where women are being brutally murdered. Garrett, her last boyfriend, who happens to also be a detective, finds Rayna at the scene. Garrett knows a lot more about the murders than he is willing to share with Rayna. He thinks he's protecting her, but what he doesn't realize is that he just set her up for danger. Rayna's boss has demanded she investigate Malcolm, a man who has requested Rayna come to his house so he can prove to her that werewolves are real. Little does Rayna know that not only does Malcolm want to expose the werewolves to her but he wants to make her one and expose the werewolves to the world. When Garrett finds out where Rayna has gone, he goes to save her because he knows that Malcolm wants more than he is leading on. Rayna will have to fight to keep from getting turned into a werewolf and Garrett is the only one that can help her. She finds that Garrett has loved her all along and only broke her heart to save her from his past. I was on the fence when I started this book. I was worried that Rayna was going to be this weak,"help me", female character. I was wrong. Rayna is a strong female character who comes to realize what she wants and what she willing to fight for. The story takes place in a remote town inhabited by werewolves, and brings in other supernatural characters. There is lots of action, and twists and turns which keeps you on the edge till the end.

Rating: 4 out of 5
