Wolf Spirit, #2
His by pack law, and he wants more than her body. Will she be able to surrender her heart?
Switzerland, the winter of 1940. Alexia, a wolf-shifter, is mate to the Alpha of a powerful clan. Her life, the pack's future and the lives of countless children the pack smuggles out of Europe are in jeopardy. The Gestapo want her blood to breed an unstoppable regiment endowed with her gifts. Cathen, the pack's Epsilon Beta, is charged with protecting her. When Alexia's beloved mate is killed, Cathen becomes Alpha and by pack law, she is his new mate.
On the run from the Gestapo's werewolves with Cathen, Alexia has no time to mourn. Can she resist what she's beginning to feel for her protector, despite her aching loss? Should she try? If she rejects him–not so easy to do do–he will die and the future of the pack she loves as family will be in danger. Cathen and Alexia's destinies are bound together, and to find peace and love amid the horror of war, she must accept her fate and heal her new mate.

This book picks up right where the last book left off. The pack is on the move again, staying ahead of Alexia's pursuers. Danger lurks around every bend and the new-minted Shunu has a steep learning curve with her new people. There is so much no one is telling her and it ends up almost costing her everything. Since Alexia chose VanWolfe in the last book, Cathen has gotten more distant and short with her. His heart still calls for her despite Alexia's choice in VanWolfe. He tries, rather successfully to push her away so he can stop feeling for her. In the end, I was amused with the book. It is a short read and entertaining. I was a little put off by how quickly Alexia seemed to get over VanWolfe and how hard she pushed Cathen away when they'd had a spark before. Ideally, I would have liked to have seen them become friends and develop the bond. The wolf part of the Shunu seems to be driven by sex and lust and apparently need sexual release to free themselves from mourning and from going feral. (view spoiler) This is another quick read and I really hope the author continues the storyline and evolves the characters. I would also like for her to show us a little more of the history of Nazi Europe, especially since that is the author's background and history, growing up hearing the stories.
