Tales of the Harker Pack: Book One

Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.

When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.

    To save the pack, Cole Harker is promised to marry Analiese whic

    To save the pack, Cole Harker is promised to marry Analiese which will secure an alliance in this riveting m/m shifter romance.  This fascinating story has lots of excitement with a wolf war, wolf-knapping and some surprising twists to keep the reader on their toes and I must say that I couldn’t put the story down until I had read the very last word.  As I have already had the pleasure of reading the second one, I can’t wait to get my hands on the third one which is due out in early 2015.

    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    I’ve enjoyed the humor and all around fun it’s been to read Tara Lain in the past.  Her stories usually have just enough heat, and quirky enough characters that keep me entertained and reading more.  THE PACK AND THE PANTHER fell a bit shy of that for me.  It’s entertaining and I love to see a wolf shifter that is looking for a male mate and going against the norm of the pack, but I didn’t really feel the connection between Cole and Paris.

    Paris on the one hand is the type of MC that I like to see from Ms. Lain.  He’s out and proud.  A bit of the outcast, and on the inside suffering from bottling all that in.  For as extravagant his persona comes across, there’s a lonely man on the inside that needs to be loved.  And he wants nothing to do with the pack.  Cole is the opposite.  He’s been groomed to be alpha, and has issues going against family and pack and coming out officially.  Willing to sacrifice himself and marry for the good of his people.

    I think I would’ve loved this setup, but maybe the fact that this is a pretty short story didn’t give the author enough time to sell me on the connection between Paris and Cole.  It’s lust at first sight, but I wanted the rest to have more substance.

    Nevertheless, it was still an enjoyable read and I will give another try to the next book in this series.  But this just reminds me that I should catch up on the rest of her books I still haven’t read!

    If I had to choose something I did not like about this book it would probably have to be the way both packs expected Cole and Paris to sacrifice themselves for the good of the pack. Never once were they asked what they wanted. That being said, once I started this book I couldn't seem to put it down. 

    This was a real story with real emotions and I loved every minute and every page. The more I read the more I wanted to read. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty of sexy, steamy moments between Cole and Paris, but what was between them was so much more than sex. It was heartfelt emotion. 

    A fantastic first book in a new series and I for one can't wait for the next book. If I'm a really really good girl it'll be Lindsay's book.

    There is so much that I liked about this book!  The characters are all so vivid and I especially liked Cole and Paris – our heroes.  Cole is just so endearing while Paris is adorable and fun.  They go well together because they balance each other so well.  Their conflict felt natural and made for a very compelling read.  

    There are some hard parts, but the worst of it is short and it all only makes the characters stronger as people.  There’s a decent amount of shifting which I always appreciate in a shifter story, and the ending is just so sweet.  I can’t wait for more!

    The Pack or the Panther is an awesome start to what is sure to be a great new series from the fabulous Tara Lain.  Her books always grab my emotions and leave me happy, and this one is no exception.
