Overview

Ellison Rowe is a wolf Shifter who has embraced all things Texas. He's a cowboy through and through, complete with a Texas drawl, cowboy hat, and well-worn cowboy boots. He's also lonely, though he feels obligated to look after his sister who is recovering from a hit-and-run accident that has left her striving to control her feral tendencies.

Enter Maria, a human woman taking refuge with the Shifters, who volunteers to look after the cubs and help Ellison’s sister. Maria too is recovering from a haunted past—she was kidnapped and held hostage by a rogue Shifter and then disowned by her family when she was set free. Now she’s on her own, but determined to put her life back together and leave Shiftertown for good.

But someone is attempting to abduct Shifter cubs, and Maria and Ellison know they must stop him. As Maria works with Ellison to track down the kidnapper, she finds her heart slowly awakening once more. And Ellison realizes that Maria may be just the one to bring light back into his life…

I've been anxiously awaiting this book since I first read about Ellison in prior Shifters Unbound novels.. I mean, really?? Who can resist a smooth talking, sexy as sin, wolf-shifter cowboy with a look of pure temptation in his eyes and that delicious slow Texas drawl?! Not me! I've wanted to know every detail possible about Ellison & I've wanted to see him finally get his life story & jump into his world, head first. Let me assure you that Jennifer Ashley hit her mark perfectly!  We learn more on Ellison & why he has such an easy-going manner & remains so devoted to his adopted shifter-town outside of Austin.. We also meet the beautiful, fiery and very human Maria, who faced down hell herself with a horrifying past that would break anyone of us. Ellison can't help but linger around this broken but amazing woman and his protective instincts kick in big time! But Ellison realizes that Maria won't be so easy-going as she has the heart of a warrior & will protect her shifter friends without fear. A monster of a man comes up & tries to threaten everything that Ellison & Maria hold dear.. Can Ellison manage to keep his soon-to-be-mate safe? Or will she jump in & protect her friends at the expense of her own life? This is one satisfying read & as usual, Ms. Ashley weaves a fine web & draws you into the amazing world of the Shifters Unbound and once entered, it's a world you'll never want to leave...

3.5 stars Review: LONE WOLF is the latest novella (150 pages) in Jennifer Ashley’s Shifter’s Unbound series focusing on the shifters of Shiftertown, Austin Texas. The storyline focus is on wolf shifter Ellison Rowe and the mate of his heart Maria, the young woman rescued in Wild Cat where she was held captive by a feral pack of shifters. Ellison has always been protective of Maria and knew she would one day be his mate, but her history with the feral shifters meant Maria was off limits to everyone. There would be more than one male vying for Maria’s attention and Ellison knew he had to step up his game before another male claimed mate status and he lost Maria forever. Maria is well aware of Shifter rules and knew that she could refuse a mate claim. Wanting to go back to university, Maria sets her sights on an education but when the younger shifters are targeted from the human population, Maria will have to put her future on hold, when the Shifters must hunt down the people responsible. For all of the trauma she has suffered in the past, Maria is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants and saving the cubs of Shiftertown has moved to the top of her list. LONE WOLF is a well-written, wonderful short story that finds another Shifter mated and a continuous uneasy alliance between the human population of Austin and the Shifters of Shiftertown. The relationship between Ellison and Maria growls steadily, as both have been drawn to each other for several storylines. Lone Wolf is the culmination of one woman’s healing at the hands of her intended mate. Jennifer Ashley brings together many of the previous storyline characters to add a familiar feel to each and every installment in the Shifters Unbound series. READING ORDER0.5.

Ellison's story Ellison is a wolf shifter with a heart and a smile as big as Texas.  He has been a secondary character in several of the Austin Shiftertown stories and I’ve been enchanted with him and his big heart and sense of humor in each instance.  I was thrilled that Ms. Ashley  found a mate worthy of him.  Can’t wait for Tigers story.

Although this was a short read it was filled with a lot action. this was Ellison and Maria story all about family and finding a piece in their world. Cubs getting abducted , families being torn, a great read!

Ellison has always been one of my favorite characters from the beginning with his comments about not getting to the girl fast enough before his fellow shifters got to them. With his Texas accent, cowboy boots and hat, and quick smile he was my favorite character from the start; so I enjoyed his story a lot. Maria was perfect for him too. Loved their story.

From the very beginning of this series I have been patiently (ok I can't lie, not so patiently) waiting for Ellison Rowe's book. The handsome wolf shifter that is always too late to get the girl. At last he has found the one for him. His mate. Only one problem..... she doesn't want a him. Or any shifter for that matter. Maria was rescued from a group of feral shifters in Mexico. Held against her will by the man who claimed her as mate she refuses to ever be under another shifters control. Rejected by her human family she has no choice but to seek refuge within the shiftertown. Ellison will do anything for Maria. Even if it means waiting until she is willing to admit that she has feelings for him and become his mate. But events are in play that could jeapordize everthing that he has been working towards for the past year. When men try to kidnap a cub while under Maria's care the firewarks really start. Ellison's protective instincts kick into high gear. I really enjoyed the sparring between these two. Maria was no pushover and her attitude really lent itself to everything that was going on in the story. I loved this book! I love this series.

I hadn't resd any other stories in the series & even though i liked all of the charters in the story, i don't feel that driven need to go back & read what vomes before or after. Some of it was so fast (like how did the winning team get there so quickly aftet only being on the phone adking for dirrctions a momment ago etc) and the " you have to help us, I'm coming with you" arguments were lame. Also both of the love scenes were NOT sexy in the slightest. Enough for me not to spend $7.99 on the next Tiger book which i may have brought if it was $2.99 save your money people
