SUMMARY
A rare Omega wolf with the gift of healing, Scarlet underwent her first shift to werewolf form while held captive by a pack of rogue Alphas. The abuse shattered her connection with her inner bitch and left her with a severe Alpha-phobia. A broken wolf link put her out of the mating game. But determined to serve a pack in need of her healing, she searches for the legendary werewolf whisperer on the chance he can work the miracle she needs.

Once he roamed North America guiding the broken wolves back to wholeness, but Daniel nearly lost his humanity the last time he tracked a rogue. Escaping from the whisperer business, he spent months in his true werewolf form. Now he's the lone wolf sheriff in sleepy Cedar Grove. He likes peace and quiet in his territory, same as any good law officer, and the new redhead in town is pure trouble.

Two seconds after they meet, she's disturbing the hell out of his peace. She's a pack princess and he's not interested in a pack sanctioned mating. Been there, done that, and still paying through the nose for the mistake. Leaving her alone is the right choice, but he can't deny that she smells delicious.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.

A seriously scorching new wolfie tale that will leave you howling for more. I just loved this new erotic paranormal romance novella. Fellow smutty wolf lovers are going to be waggin' their tails too.

What an ingenious idea for a plot. Daniel, lone wolf and sheriff of small town, Cedar Grove, is out of the healing business. At one time, fellow pack members across North America referred to him as the Wolf Whisperer. Daniel had the ability to coax male wolves that were trapped in wolf form back into their human form. The one time he failed would be his last… or so he thought.

There aren't many female wolves. Most of the time, males must mate with humans, making female pure blood wolves a cherished part of their community. And even rarer was the Omega female. With the power to help heal and help transitioning adolescent wolves, Omegas were nothing less than lifesavers.

Scarlet was born a pure blood Omega wolf. Royalty in the pack's eyes. At fifteen, she and her mother were kidnapped by rogue alphas, raped, and beaten. Scarlet was forced to witness the murder of her mother. Never again would her wolf come out to play. Scarlet was trapped in human form, unable to access the Omega the pack needed so badly.

She's come seeking the Wolf Whisperer.

The two of them are pure magic. I loved the part where she cuts up an apple and serves it to him with Nutella, and he is swooning because she ‘cooked' for him. He admits to himself, "She could serve sawdust and I'd love it." Love, love, love it!

The tension and angst are out of this world. I was dying for them to just hook up already (um…maybe two pages into it. I'm not patient) and he just keeps coming up with reasons to deny the chemistry--age, her royal status, he's not good enough… but in the end chemistry and his big ol' heart prevailed. Well, it might have been a big ol' something else, too.

And that's where I really, really loved this book. Ms Lorraine used the concepts found in BDSM Dominance and Submission to aid Daniel in reaching Scarlet's wolf. It was pure genius. If you read BDSM, you will know that it is primarily psychological. It is the giving up of control and discovering something better in its place. The whole logic and process he used actually made sense. It seemed…well… logical that it would work. (And at the same time, we got a bunch of really steamy, wild wolf lovin' to read) Don't let the inclusion of BDSM scare you off. It isn't a BDSM book at its core. Nothing particularly uncomfortable to read. He doesn't hurt her, she isn't scared. It is more of a mental game to get past the human fears to the wolfie inside. It just worked for me.

The only negative I have is that it is too doggone short. It was just so delicious I wanted MORE! Thank heavens Ms. Lorraine is working on a new installment, and she promises it will be longer. It's kinda like chocolate. A little is just a tease. Her characters have such potential for depth, and she has such a wonderful voice, we just need more. Count on me to keep my eyes peeled for her next book about Hunter. Enjoy!
