WOLF AT THE DOOR is a somewhat predictable shifter story, nicely written but holding little surprises and quite unfinished when it comes to the world building.
Darin is a nurse who likes to run when stressed out. He knows it's dangerous but he prefers running surrounded by trees and on one such occasion he trips over a handsome man. While the encounter is short, it's certainly memorable and while Darin's life suddenly turns to plain old weird, he still doesn't have it in him to be afraid.
Raylan is a werewolf always on the lookout for the Huntsmen, people dedicated to the eradication of his species, but once he meets his mate, he has trouble leaving, something he did each time before. Now he has a reason to stay and fight, because he's not willing to give up the one man who was made for him.
This is one of those stories which isn't bad, it just lacks details to tie it all together. I needed more characterization, an opportunity to get to know the characters better in a setting outside of the main pairing. Even their interactions weren't as deep as I would have liked and when the conclusion eventually came, it was both expected as well as lacking in substance.
This wasn't my favorite by this author, but as something simple and relaxing, it's not a bad choice.
