ARC Review: Baby, I'm Howling for You by Christine Warren

Baby, I'm Howling for You
Author: Christine Warren
Series: Alphaville (Book 1)
Publication: St. Martin's Paperbacks (January 30, 2018)

Description: WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite―for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate―and disarmingly hot―Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

My Thoughts: Renny Landry is a wolf shifter on the run from a stalker who has chased her out of her job and a few towns since. She is trying to get to Alphaville which is supposed to be a haven for lone shifters and other shifters with problems.

After running out of gas, she shifts and heads into the woods just moments ahead of the gang of coyote shifters who want to catch her and bring her back to their evil coyote shifter boss. She winds up in the yard of Mick Fischer, another wolf shifter. He takes one look at her and his inner wolf declares her his mate.

The human part of Mick doesn't want to have anything to do with her. He has already had a mate and lost her. There is no way that he ever wants to feel that sort of pain again. However, Renny is in trouble and needs him and his inner wolf if putting a lot of pressure on him to claim her in every possible way.

Mick soon gives way to his inner wolf but Renny isn't at all sure that they have anything other than their mating bond. She wants emotional closeness and fears that Mick's past won't allow him to give it. It really doesn't help that her stalker is his former brother-in-law which brings up the tragic past he is trying to put behind him.

I loved the relationship. I loved the way the story was told from both Renny and Mick's points of view. I loved the colorful writing and touches of humor. The romance was intense and believable. The story is filled with excitement as Renny, Mick and the town rally around to track down her stalkers and take care of the problem.

Great urban fantasy/paranormal romance.

Favorite Quote:
Seriously, they looked like a trio of actors trying to outdo one another on an audition for Bad Cop, Worse Cop. It it weren't her life they were trying to run, Renny would have laughed.

Instead, she just wanted to scream.
