Read an Excerpt


"Somebody is killing werewolves."

Greg Novak spoke calmly, though he was seething inside. He sat in the office of the bar he co-owned with his brother, George, and looked at his small pack. Four lupine shifters and two humans. As an alpha, he'd been unable to live under the hand of a more dominant wolf. He'd broken away from his family pack at adulthood, and the other three wolves had followed him. First they'd gone to California and formed a rock band, then when Greg and George had inherited the club from their maternal grandfather, they'd all come back home to Michigan. The humans had joined up more recently. It might not be much of a pack, but it was his. They were his family, by blood or affection, and his responsibility.

"It has to be Beowulf," George grumbled. His dark brown eyes were a mirror of Greg's own. Younger by less than a year, he was the fashionable one, with a sleek, expensive haircut, designer jeans and a glossy black leather jacket, while Greg preferred his own long hair, battered jeans and rock-band T-shirts. They also differed in outlook. Lacking the souped-up hormones that an alpha like Greg was stuck with, George often had the more level head of the two. "We just have to figure out who Beowulf is."

"Or why he's working with this Nightshade asshole to take out our people in Detroit." Lana, the Novaks' cousin, was perched atop a filing cabinet in the corner of the small basement room, since there weren't enough chairs. The room was simple, with exposed brick walls and a wooden floor, much like it had been when Greg's great-grandfather had owned it in the 20s, running with the Purple Gang to funnel Canadian alcohol into American bars.

"I talked to Meagan earlier today," offered Jase, George's lover, from where he sat on the edge of George's antique wooden desk. "The elves haven't found out anything more. All they're saying is that Underhill has gone quiet." Jase's lilting Jamaican accent was at odds with the others' Midwestern speech, and the silver beads in his black dreadlocks jingled as he spoke.

Greg smiled at Jase, a human pottery artist. Everyone nodded, aware of the recent trouble within the Fae. An elven racial purity movement had tried to seize control of Underhill. Nobody knew how the legendary werewolf-assassin, Beowulf, was connected to that now-dormant plot, but his name had come up during the Fae investigations and now someone was taking out lupines.

"So right now it's only werewolves under attack. Fucking great." Vince Martin, the fourth lupine in the room, had been a friend of both Greg and George's since they were all pups. He sat in the one guest armchair. "So what do we do?"

"Stay alert," Greg advised. "Watch each other's backs. Hell, take a long vacation if you want. That's probably the smartest thing to do."

"We could hire more staff to manage the club and take the band back on the road," George offered half-heartedly. All four lupines made up the band that played most weekends at the club. As the only one in a serious relationship, traveling would be hardest on George.

They all looked at each other. Everyone but Vince shook their heads.

"I'm staying," Greg said. "This bar is my territory and I'm not going to give up without a fight. The rest of you are free to do what you want."

"Staying," said George and Jase together, their fingers intertwined, George's dark tan and Jase's deep brown.

    Must Read!

    Suspicion and betrayal are crouched to spring upon Greg and Fianna; two secondary characters who were previously involved in the exciting action in the past two books in the Urban Arcana series. In this latest adventure, the talented Ms. Spencer Pape has thrust them into the limelight to take center stage as a mystery finally gets solved. I've eagerly looked forward to finding out how the author would get Greg and Fianna together. The wait was worth it.

    Greg and Fianna are about to get their story book ending amidst chaos and surprises as the author wove another intricate, detailed and emotionally charged tale. I was shocked as to who one of the villains turned out to be and I felt great sadness at the loss of what I thought was a great character with HEA potential.

    This book has a greater impact for readers who have followed this awesome series but by no means would a first time reader get lost. In fact, they'd have the benefit of the conclusion of the drama and the revelation of all the players. So as a standalone, it will feel complete. For those of us who have read the first two books, the disclosures will have more of a shock and awe effect. In either event, Motor City Wolf is guaranteed entertainment.

    Fianna as a character has had the most growth of all the personalities in the series. She initially started out as a villainess, but in time readers discovered she was a victim; a tragic figure caught in a power mad dysfunctional family and expendable. How this woman takes the punishment and not only thrives but earns the respect of her peers in amazing scenes that tested her mettle truly made Fianna a memorable person and a real heroine. I like her as a person and definitely as a mate to Greg.

    Waters run deep with the hero, Greg. Of all the people that have come and gone in this series, he has the most to lose and he does. The author wrote so many intense scenes surrounding him or the ones he loved that I reached for tissues several times. He was a man who knew he had a destiny but he didn't want it. Not really. But fate and Ms. Spencer Pape knew he was the alpha for the job and when push came to bite, Greg didn't let his pack nor readers down.

    There are a couple of conflicts going on. The most adorable one and my favorite is the conundrum of Greg's attraction to Fianna and his attempt at resisting it. It was totally fun when he capitulated and it made for some steamy reading. The other darker conflict is external. Greg has to face the ultimate betrayal, the loss of someone he grudgingly admits to loving and respecting, and his becoming what he never wanted to be. The big climax and action-filled showdown was tightly written with active voice all the way. It kept me riveted and hanging in suspense and I couldn't flip those pages fast enough.

    It was great seeing all of my favorite characters from the previous books and in Motor City Wolf, they had effective supporting secondary roles that kept the story interesting and the plot moving in a natural progression. I enjoy that sense of community and Ms. Spencer Pape balanced it well.
