If a tree falls in the forest, duck…

Takhini Wolves, Book 2

Life in isolation is the safest place for Chase Johnson, a crossbreed who doesn’t know which form he’ll assume next—cougar or wolf. Once a year, his unelected position as spokesman for the Yukon outcasts forces him to visit civilization. This time he runs across someone unexpected. She’s not his mate, but she pushes all the right buttons.

It’s taken years for Shelley Bradley to gather the courage to return to her home pack. In spite of being the lowest of the low—a shifter who can’t shift—she’s determined to make a place for herself as the Whitehorse locals’ new vet-slash-doctor.

There’s definite electricity between her and Chase, but sex with fellow shifters and the inherent mind games got old a long time ago. Ignoring him seems best. When he shows up at her office with a wound that won’t heal, she’s stuck—yet drawn to solve this medical mystery.

As they journey deep into outcast territory in search of answers, their powerful sexual attraction crumbles her resistance. But time is of the essence. If a cure can’t be found before his human and cougar succumb to his injury, he—and others like him—will die.

Warning: Contains a silver-tongued, hairy-chested, lean-muscled Alpha who’s got what it takes to lead in the wilderness and in the bedroom. Yeah, I know…not really much of a deterrent, is it? Throw in continuing territorial wars and a domestic cat. Stir and enjoy the chaos.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Arend follows Black Gold with another passionate paranormal romance set in the Canadian wilderness. Chase, a reclusive shifter who unpredictably alternates between wolf and cougar forms, is the unofficial alpha for the shifters of the Keno bush region. During his yearly trip to Whitehorse for supplies, he meets Shelley, a wolf-blooded shifter incapable of transformation, whose veterinary training makes her the perfect doctor for the local pack. The attraction is immediate and the sexual tension off the charts, and when Shelley accompanies Chase back into the bush, they give in to their mutual desires. However, a deadly disease racing through the shifter population may put a damper on the blossoming relationship, especially when Chase is affected. There’s a real chemistry between the characters, laced with humor and snappy dialogue, and no shortage of steamy sex scenes to keep things lively. The result is an entertaining, spicy romance. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group. (Sept.)

Yet Another great series from Vivian Arend. This is book 2 in the Takhini Wolves series. I have to admit up front I’ve loved everything I’ve read from this author. This is a great Paranormal Romance that is for adults. The sex scenes are steamy and well done, but there is plenty of action. The story is well developed. Chase is a loner and he's convinced he likes it that way because he never knows if he'll shift into a cat or wolf, then he gets hurt and can't heal. He runs into Shelley at her clinic and suddenly alone doesn't sound so good. Of course he thinks he just wants a fling. I like Chase’s confidence in his abilities, quiet strength and the way he takes care of everyone in his life while denying he does it at the same time. I did wish he didn’t doubt that he was worthy of anything other than being an outcast due to his duel nature and lack of a certain control. Shelley has cruelty in her past that she has to overlook so that she can connect with another shifter. She holds pieces of herself away from everyone. She’s convinced herself that she’ll be alone forever and is fine with it. Then Chase shows up in down and makes her doubt her outlook for the future. Shelley also fights herself for what she wants. I could understand Shelley's pain at past and potential future rejection and her desire to be with the sister that loves and supports her regardless of anything else. I loved the characters, especially Chase, they felt real with developed personalities. The side characters were well developed with complex personalities. I want to know more about a few of them. The Yukon came to life for me. At times I felt the cold and the beauty of the place come through very well. I laughed out loud, got annoyed at some characters, and felt the emotional pain of others. In other words Ms. Arend brought the story to life. I received a copy of book from author for an honest review.

Loved it. This is the second book in the series and I really enjoyed it. She is a vet and he is a lonesome outsider. He is injured and this new infection isn't healing. She being a shifter that can't shift trained as a vet so she could help animals and shifters alike. It was a cute romance and I really enjoyed the read. This author is very enjoyable. I can't wait until more of this series comes out.

I have enjoyed everything I have read from Vivian Arend. She has such a great way with the characters and storyline in all her books. I really loved the first book in this series so was delighted to find the release of Silver Mine. I never give away spoilers in my reviews. I just want to let people know if I enjoyed the book or not. And this was another fantastic story about the shifter community. The lead characters were interesting and their journey to each other was not only enjoyable but interesting. Bravo to Vivian for another book well done. I can't wait to read the next in this series or anything else she releases!!!! :)

I really loved this book and this series so far.  Chase is a Metis shifter, with 2 different forms. He is also a defacto alpha for a clan of misfit group of mix species shifters that live out in the bush. All of these shifters look to him for leadership, whether he wants it or not. Shelley is a wolf who can't shift at all. She was raised with a sister who is a full human, who is currently sleeping with the Takhini pack alpha. Shelley went to vet school to learn as much as she could so that she could help the shifters back home. It was her way to feel useful. This is a great series with humor, sexiness and lots of great shifters. I'm so glad that I stumbled across a review for this series on RabidReads. I highly recommend this series if you like shifters.
