Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.

"If I ever fall in love with a werewolf," Veronica said, as she stared at a drunken wedding guest being escorted out of Seward Park, "shoot me."
"Famous last words."
Veronica Vale, wedding planner extraordinaire, folded her arms across her chest and gazed up at the cords of white lights streaming over the dance floor. "I don't care how powerful they think they are, take them out of wolf form and they're nothing but overgrown dogs in need of a muzzle."
"Ouch." Heather, her assistant wedding coordinator, eyed the bridal party as they waltzed to a beautiful rendition of "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" Huffing, Heather leaned over and bumped Veronica playfully in the shoulder. "Remind me not to get on your bad side."
"I'm sorry, but there's no excuse to get all worked up, especially at a wedding. Just goes to prove that they're animals. Completely incapable of controlling their anger." Veronica's thoughts whirled around the incident that'd barely been avoided. Mr. Grady, the groom's canine uncle, was offended that he'd been removed from the lineup of people to toast the bride and groom. The order came straight from the groom, but she was the one who had to relay the message and take the brunt of Mr. Grady's anger. Veronica's heart pounded in her chest as she strained to lower her voice. "If we hadn't caught Mr. Grady when we did, seconds before he shifted, he would've burst through his tuxedo in front of everyone. Body hair suit?" She scoffed. "Not exactly wedding couture."
Heather laughed. Veronica was grateful she had a friend to talk to about the werewolves in Seattle. If she had to bear the burden on her own, she didn't know how she'd handle it. As it was, thinking about her older sister, Leah, being attacked last year and turning into a wolf made Veronica's arm hair stand on end. It didn't matter that Leah had accepted the hand she'd been dealt and fallen in love 7with a born werewolf from the Seattle Wolf Pack.
They were unnatural and had serious anger issues that turned them into beasts. If it weren't for Leah getting info from her werewolf fiancé, Jake, and tipping Veronica off as to which wedding guests could shift into the mangy things at the Grady wedding, Veronica wouldn't have known to watch out for the groom's uncle in the first place. There were a handful of other wolves attending the Grady wedding — from what her sister had said — and Veronica had assigned Heather to keep a close eye on all of them.
They couldn't be trusted.
With a start, Heather whirled around and leaned into Veronica's shoulder. "Don't look now, but he's staring at you again."
Veronica scanned the dance floor, and as a couple spun by, her gaze caught on the guy who stood on the opposite side of the floor, the one who'd been checking her out all evening. His body was slender but powerful, with square, broad shoulders that tapered down to narrow hips. His tuxedo enhanced his frame, hugging his biceps and pulling at the seam in his groin. The way he stood, with his arms folded over his chest and his feet shoulder-width apart, screamed dominance. He had a body that made Veronica's thoughts nosedive from vanilla to downright dirty.
Veronica's breath hitched and she glanced away, studying the DJ as if she hadn't noticed him, yet.
"He hasn't taken his eyes off you all night," Heather continued. "Maybe he's your secret admirer!"
"You really think so?" Veronica had been getting notes and flowers for weeks, but had no clue who sent them. It was thrilling, knowing someone out there cared enough to surprise her that way. "But wait, I don't know that guy over there. From the sound of the notes, my admirer has met me before."
"Okay, maybe he's a stranger who thinks you're hot. Either way, you have to go say something."
"Umm, that's a no." Veronica pretended to laugh as the song changed to something more upbeat. "He's probably looking at you."
"Please. If I wanted to nail a guy like that I'd have to stand as far away from you as possible so there wouldn't be any distractions. In case you haven't looked in the mirror in a while, you kinda steal the show."
Heather gave Veronica a once-over, adding an eyebrow wiggle for dramatic presentation. She got an A for effort, but Veronica wasn't buying it. If she was as hot as Heather always insinuated, it wouldn't have been months since the last time Veronica rolled over and fetched a bone.
Feeling nervous, Veronica adjusted her simple black dress and crossed her feet at the ankles. "Thank you, but now's not the time for personal business. We can talk about that in two nanoseconds when the reception is over."
"You know, the one major plus to planning weddings is all kinds of hot, single guys show up, and I've never seen you take advantage of it. Not once. It's okay to mix business with pleasure, you know."
Veronica sighed and fidgeted with the spaghetti strap that'd slipped off her shoulder. "It's never okay to mix the two. Besides, there is more than one good thing about my job."
"Free drinks?" Heather swiped a champagne flute off the tray of a passing server and nodded in thanks.
"No" — Veronica let her gaze skim the dance floor, from the couples moving in time to each other, to the white lights crossing overhead, to the moonlight-tipped waves of Lake Washington shimmering in the distance — "you get to witness really great love. Think about it, Heather. This couple will remember today as the day they were blissfully happy. Today is the day they love each other the most, when everything is perfect and magical. When things get tough, they'll think back to this. It's kind of special to think that I — we, had a hand in it."
"You are kind of a wedding genius, and I'll scream your praises to everyone I meet," Heather said, sipping on her drink and turning back around. "But if you wanted to bark up that guy's tree at the end of the night, I wouldn't tell a soul."
* * *
Whatever you do, don't take your eyes off Veronica Vale.
His friend's instructions rang through Logan's ears, loud and clear: keep her safe, keep your hands off, and find the werewolf who is stalking her.
At first, when Logan had taken the job assignment from Jake McKenna, his packmate and Marine brother, he thought he'd lost his ever-lovin' mind. Watch a human? Logan didn't watch humans. He was a werewolf, bodyguard for hire, and hit man for the Seattle Wolf Pack. But Ms. Vale had a stalker, and the creep was a werewolf. There was a very real possibility that whoever was following her around was a member of their pack, which meant this order was one that needed to be taken seriously.
Calling the police was out of the question: werewolves took care of their business so humans wouldn't know they existed.
According to Jake, Veronica believed she had a secret admirer. Someone who sent flowers to her office and left anonymous love notes on her doorstep. But after Jake and Leah Vale's engagement party last month, Jake had arrived at Veronica's house before everyone else and found a wooden jewelry box full of wolf hair, along with a small emerald ring. Being that Seattle was often called the Emerald City, they'd assumed an emerald ring coupled with the wolf hair signified the stalker was part of the Seattle Wolf Pack. There was a note, too. One that spouted off notions of true, undying love and all that bullshit.
Jake had hidden everything from Leah and Veronica, and called Logan to take care of the situation before things got out of control.
But now, Logan didn't have a choice in how to handle the situation. He had to watch Veronica and become her shadow, without revealing that he'd been hired to do those things. Usually, the people he protected knew that they were being tailed. They were aware of his presence and knew he was being paid for the job. He didn't like following her around without her knowing it.
The way Jake had put it, they didn't have a choice.
If Veronica found out she was being stalked, or that Jake, her future brother-in-law, had hired someone to protect her, she'd probably run to the police. They'd start sniffing around, and if the stalker was a loose cannon, he could shift in front of them. The last thing the pack needed was Seattle PD knowing werewolves existed.
After walking around the edges of the reception site to make sure there was nothing out of the ordinary, Logan stood just outside the grassy clearing and watched Veronica carefully. She'd caught him staring on more than one occasion, but what else could he do? He had to admit she was stunning. The short hemline of her skirt showed off a pair of toned legs that led to a dainty waist, lean back, and smooth, petite shoulders. At first glance, he'd thought Veronica was plain, but he'd been wrong. She had almond-shaped eyes, round cheeks, and straight brown hair that had been pulled back into a ponytail. If she was mistaken for being plain, it was because she wasn't looking to catch someone's eye. She was all business, and had a serious-set mouth. Logan bet she was often glanced over as being too uptight. He saw through it ...
"Why aren't you dancing?" The old man sitting nearest Logan swiveled around and draped his arm over the back of his chair. "If my legs were as young as yours, I wouldn't waste a single song."
"I'm not here for the music," Logan said, losing sight of Veronica behind one of the giant white tents. Time to run. "I'm working."
"You're part of the wedding staff?" The old man shrugged his shoulders to his ears. "You don't look like everyone else around here." He winked. "You must be a spy."
Logan laughed as he made his way around the old man's table. "I'm not a spy."
"If you work for Bond, you can tell me."
"I may not be all that I seem, but I'm no spy."
The old man nodded like he understood. "Right ... right. Because you'd have to kill me if you said so."
Logan bit his lip to keep from bringing up the topic of dementia.
"If you're not a spy ..." The old man winked. "Then you must be working on finding the right lady to take home tonight. Can't fool me; I remember those days well enough." The old man pointed a crooked finger into the air and wagged it around. "You've come to the right place. Single ladies flock to these things. They hope all the love talk will snag them a man."
"I don't mean any disrespect, sir," Logan said, leaning closer. "But weddings aren't my thing. I'd rather saw off my finger than let a dame put a ring on it."
"That's horribly depressing," a soft voice said from behind him.
He spun around and laid eyes on the most gorgeous woman at the wedding: Veronica Vale.
"It's the truth." He shoved his hands in his pockets to feign a sense of calmness, and backed away from the old man's table. "And you are?"
Isn't that what he would say if he was meeting her for the first time?
"Veronica Vale." She cocked her hip to the side, and her heel slipped into a hole in the grass. Laughing it off, she stepped onto solid ground. "I'm the wedding planner."
"Nice to meet you," he said, but he was thinking something entirely different. This wasn't how it was supposed to happen. Logan was hired to discover who was stalking Veronica and drag that creepy werewolf's ass back to their Alpha to answer to pack law without clueing her in. He'd have to be more careful when following her around.
Now that she'd met him, she would notice him again.
"And you are?" she asked.
"Related to the groom." Think fast. "Mr. Grady's cousin."
Veronica suddenly looked awkward in her own skin, her feet shifting over the grass, and the edges of her lips shaking when she talked. What had her so nervous, when she was the one who'd approached him?
She detached her dark eyes from his and gazed across the dance floor. "So tell me, Mr. Grady's cousin, what do you think of the wedding so far?"
He followed her line of sight: a blonde in a blue dress was standing against the bar, watching their encounter very carefully. When she noticed Logan's attention shift to her, she quickly spun around, sloshing her drink to the floor in the process.
"A friend of yours?" he said, nodding in the woman's direction.
Veronica seemed to stiffen. "My wedding assistant, Heather. Listen, I only came over here because she bet me a pair of shoes that I wouldn't do it."
"Talking to me ... for a pair of shoes?" Logan laughed. "How much is the losing bet going to put her out?"
"About two hundred dollars. Her entire commission for the night."
"Seriously? Am I really that intimidating?"
"No, it's just that I'm not supposed to be socializing while I'm on duty, and I take my work seriously. And Heather thought ... well, I don't know what Heather thought."
"That I've had my eye on you all night, so you might as well come say hello."
"Yeah, I guess that's what it was." His frankness made her cheeks blush a sweet shade of pink. She grasped the end of her hair and twiddled it around. "I should get back."
She walked away, her heels sinking in the grass, her long, toned legs flexing as she fought for stability over the uneven earth.
"Better make those Nikes," Logan called after her.
Stopping, Veronica looked back. "Excuse me?"
He smiled slowly and trailed his gaze down her body. "Wouldn't want you to twist one of those delicate ankles."
Her blush deepened and she turned away.CHAPTER 2
"Come on, you stupid thing. Start." Veronica cranked on the key and fluttered her heel against the gas pedal. The engine of her Lexus sedan didn't make a sound. No electric lights went off on the dash. No sputtering motor. "This can't be happening. Come on!"
She gave the key another hard turn, then smacked her hand across the steering wheel.
The wedding had ended two hours ago, and she'd just finished micromanaging the breakdown. The last of the half-drunken wedding guests had been taxied home, and the cleaning crews had just filed out. The Seward Park parking lot was empty with the exception of a beat-up Chevy pickup truck, and the night was black, thanks to the new moon.
Heather had offered to stay until Veronica left, but she'd assured her she was only going to make a few notes before heading home. It was her routine. What she always did before leaving the job site. Somehow, jotting down her thoughts right away made the event seem clearer in her mind. Solutions to problems came for the next wedding, and things she did well were emphasized.
The thing that peeved her the most was that her car was brand-new. She'd bought it two weeks ago, and had been so proud to trade in her previous heap for the new pearly white Lexus of her dreams.
"Let's go!" She said, leaning over the wheel. "1 — 2 — 3 — start!"
With a sigh, she flopped back against the seat. She'd have to wait forever for a tow to come way out here.
"Suck a duck." Veronica jerked her purse onto her lap, fished through it and pulled out her phone.
Two loud knocks rapped against the passenger window.
Veronica's breath caught as fear paralyzed her. She slammed the door locks into place and clutched at her purse.
"Need help?" A shadowed face peered through the passenger window. She couldn't make out any features, which made the stranger even creepier.
Veronica had watched this exact scene play out in horror movies before. The damsel in distress, and the guy with the hook for a hand. She was going to die. No, she was going to be hacked to pieces first.
"Veronica?" The stranger's voice was familiar. Gravelly and rough with a smooth lilt. He bent lower, peering through the window. "Car won't start?"
Veronica squinted, struggling to discern the expression on his face. As her eyes focused, a few features became clear. Warm gunmetal-gray eyes stared beneath a creased brow, and a ruggedly square jaw framed a set of perfectly plush lips.
Mr. Grady's cousin.
"Thanks, but I'm good," she hollered through her closed window. "I'm calling for a tow."
"Know how long it'll take to get a truck out here on a Sunday night?" His eyes were gentle. Soft and trusting. "You could be sitting out here for hours."
Her head hit the headrest. "Just what I needed."
"I'm not a mechanic, but I know my way around cars." His lips gave the hint of a smile, and her heart stuttered. "I can give it a quick look if you want? Make sure it's not something simple like the battery?"
Veronica didn't know this guy from Adam — he could still be a killer — but there was sincerity in his gaze and honesty in his words. And he was a member of the Grady family, which meant he couldn't be all that bad. They were one of the most reputable families in the area, minus Mr. Grady's uncle who donned too much hair at the full moon.
Besides, ax murderers weren't this hot.
"Could you?" She shrugged. "If you don't mind?"
"Of course I don't." He strode around the front of her car. "What's going on?"
"It won't start." Shaking off the last of the fright, Veronica cracked open the door so he could hear her more clearly. "It won't even make a sound."
"Your battery might be dead." He curved his fingers beneath the hood. "Open up and I'll take a look."

Not having read the previous book in the Seattle Wolf Pack series I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a delightfully sweet yet sexy story with an amazing hero that was to die for. This story reintroduced a few characters from the previous installment but this book can definitely be read on its own as its storyline mostly revolved around the serious-minded Veronica and her loyal and sexy bodyguard Logan fighting their feelings while keeping her safe from a stalker. From start to finish I was completely immersed in this story, while drooling over Logan every moment, and kept on the edge of my seat as the story raced to its heart-pounding conclusion. Veronica has always been the responsible sister. Her parents always expected her to help her sister and it's something she still does today. In her job and in her life she's always trying to make things right for others, even at the expense of her own happiness. She's a strong-willed and serious person focused at all times. Ever since her sister was attacked by a werewolf, and become a part of the Seattle Pack, Veronica's life has been turned upside down. For so long it was just her and her sister and now she feels lonely as her sister has a new family to connect with. Her reactions at this time felt a bit juvenile and selfish at first. It felt as though she was begrudging her sister her happiness and it rubbed me wrong. Veronica felt alienated though and has a prejudice against all werewolves because of what happened to her sister which makes her feelings towards her new bodyguard Logan even more complicated. She's drawn to him the moment she sees him, attracted beyond all reason, and enjoys the care and support he gives her but hates his werewolf side thinking it will make him a crazed beast and that she'll be hurt. It will take a lot to convince her otherwise, but as she digs deeper into his soul she'll see a man worth loving. Logan brings out a better side to her, a side more inclined to have fun and be freer. As her stalker gets closer she'll see a different side of Logan that at once frightens her yet makes her feel safe which makes their path to a HEA even more uncertain. No matter how things end, she's a better person for being with Logan and I liked the woman she became by the end of the story. Logan had me at hello! He's a sexy yet loyal man to those he cares about and those he's hired to protect. He's kind hearted and playful and recognizes Veronica as something special the moment he sees her which has him running from the truth. He's not fond of commitment, doesn't believe it exists after witnessing his mother's numerous marriages and eventual abandonment of him once she met her true mate. He's the king of one-night stands but knows that Veronica means more than that. Their interactions as he's guarding her are full of sexual tension and playfulness that made him endearing. He brought laughter to her life and opened her eyes to a new kind of family if only she'd put past hurts behind her. He's a true romantic at heart that belied his roughly masculine exterior as he said many things that brought a tear to my eye and made him the epitome of a romantic hero and has me still dreaming of him. The sexual interactions between Veronica and Logan were hot and nicely spaced throughout the story as to allow their connection to grow. Their time out of the bedroom was fun and flirty with lots of playful interactions and had me completely won over by the
Loved Logan's story
Victoria is a really bigoted spoiled little girl. I keep hoping someone would just tell her to get over herself and when she finally did wayyyyy to far into the book it was more oh sorry I love you.. on the upside Logan was fabulous and the stalker was crazy
My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***Received the ebook from Entangled Publishing for an honest review This is book 2 in the series, and it is still for adults only due to the steamy content. I think it is okay to read this series in any order. Veronica and Logan both have emotional baggage and things to get over. Logan does have a unique job for sure. She has a stalker, but she thinks it is a secret admirer. Everyone keeps telling her it is creepy. They have a push and pull relationship. One minute they are pulling towards each other and then they start pushing away. I love all the action and mystery. I did guess who the stalker was correctly. I have loved every story in this series, and I therefore highly recommend the whole series to my shifter friends out there who love PNR.
A funny, exciting, suspenseful, and addictive paranormal romance! I have read this series out-of-order. I had previously read and enjoyed SO I MARRIED A WEREWOLF, the third book in this highly entertaining series, so when I saw that the previous two installments were available now in a boxset at a great price (under a dollar!), I couldn't resist! I'm so glad I picked it up as the first two books were just as delightful as the third had been. They're all funny, exciting, suspenseful, and addictive paranormal romances. FOUR WEDDINGS AND A WEREWOLF is the second installment in this fantastic series. It's the story of Veronica Vale, a wedding planner, and Logan Black, a member of the Seattle Wolf Pack and a bodyguard. When Veronica is being stalked by a rogue wolf, Logan is assigned to protect her. Veronica is no fan of shifters and Logan is no fan of weddings. You might be able to guess how this works out!!!!! I love this series! I highly recommend all three books to anyone who enjoys shifter romances. My full review will be posted for the boxset. 4 1/2 Wine Glasses!
Be leery of silence. It doesn't mean you won the argument. Often, people are just busy reloading their guns. ¿ Shannon L. Alder I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't. - Audre Lorde Back in early September, I was lucky enough to win a copy of Four Weddings and a Werewolf by Kristin Miller. It is book two of The Seattle Wolf Pack. As I already had the first book, Gone With The Wolf, I was tickled to no end to win the second. And it didn’t let me down. Veronica is not exactly happy about her newest wedding planning job, seeing as how the family includes werewolves. And Veronica is not happy with werewolves. Because Veronica’s sister was viciously attacked by a werewolf, a werewolf that changed her beloved sister, the only family she has left. Now, though she sometimes sees her sister, her life will never be the same. And Veronica is certain that werewolves are, animals. Completely incapable of controlling their anger. But now, Veronica is in danger, hunted by another of their kind. And only a werewolf may be able to save her life. There is a lot of humor in Kristin’s series, but there is a great deal of pain as well. The pain of loss and fear, and the heart pounding fear of a mad stalker, intent on taking not your life, but your very soul. This is a paranormal romance, sure. And a fun one at that. But Kristin does more, reaching beyond the simple to something better. As I said, I won the book, and was tickled to do so. All thoughts are my own.
Very cute story. Sexy with lots of sparks flying. Fun when Ms. Miller finally reveled the stalker.
Have lots of things to do? Never mind. Tasks are stacking up? They’ll wait. Plan your day accordingly, because Four Weddings and a Werewolf will keep you happily pinned to your favorite reading location until you reach The End. Poor, dateless, wedding planner Veronica Vale’s life is fine, maybe even good, but she’s about to lose her sister through matrimony to a werewolf, of all things, and she’s got an admirer who won’t reveal himself. Could her life get more upside-down? As a matter of fact, it can and does when she has an uncharacteristic fling and suddenly finds herself the subject of deep passions she has no idea how to control. She must trust those she fears, and accept that her life is going places she never wanted or anticipated. Kristin Miller has done a wonderful job creating a world within a city I know very well – Seattle. Certain to say I’ll never look at the city the same way again – with just a touch of wistfulness? The writing is superb, her characters and plot multi-dimensional and riveting . . . and hot . . . and laugh out loud funny at times. This was a fantastic read, and I look forward to more of same from Ms. Miller in the future. Very well done.
Valerie hates werewolves with everything she has. Her sister was bitten and turned changing their lives. No in the midst of planning weddings including her sister's she has a secret admirer. Logan is a werewolf and has been sent to protect Valerie. He hates weddings but helps Valerie out. He knows she has a stalker and not a secret admirer. It's a rogue werewolf who thinks Valerie is his mate. The two couldn't be more different but are really attracted to each other. With Valerie hating werewolves and Logan hating commitment it may not just work out between them. Valerie loves planning weddings and wants everything perfect. She can be wound tight most of the time. She doesn't believe there can be any good in werewolves. Logan is the sexy werewolf who is supposed to keep his hands off but can't. He has a wonderful sense of humor. I really liked these two as opposites certainly do attract in this case. First I will give a warning. Make sure your not drinking anything while reading this. It has several funny parts in it I loved. One in a flower shop had me spitting my drink out. This book is the perfect blend of romance, danger, laughter and more. I loved every bit of it. Valerie has to see not everyone is the same no matter what they are. Logan has to see he can't control his heart. I kinda had a feeling about the stalker but still had a surprise in the end. The author did a great job with writing this as it is very witty and keeps your attention. I want Logan for myself lol. If you love werewolves, paranormal, or a book with some romance grab this one up.
I received an ARC for an honest review of Four Weddings and a werewolf. To be honest I have never been interested in werewolf books. That is until I read Kristin Millers new book. I found it delightful. I was engrossed in the story from the very beg fining. The chemistry between Logan and Veronica, is just hot. I can't wait to read more by Ms. Miller, she had a way of writing that makes you excited to read the next page and so on!
Logan and Veronica, after much bickering and sexy get togethers, finally realise they belong together, but not before the mystery is solved! If you love a good werewolf romance, then this is the book for you. I absolutely loved it and I highly recommend this great read.
This was a very enjoyable story. The characters are very likeable, and their personalities had me wishing the story would not end. Wedding planner, Veronica Vale’s life has been changed forever. She never knew werewolves existed until her sister was bitten by one. She doesn’t know how to deal with her sister’s change, and as far as she’s concerned, she hates every single one of them. She’s been planning her sister’s wedding, and has recently acquired a secret admirer who is sending her gifts along with little notes, and she has no idea that a few of them have been hidden from her because they were very disturbing. At one of the wedding receptions she sees Logan and something makes her want to get to know him. But will she still want to know him when she finds out what he is? Logan Black is a bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, and as a former Marine he has plenty of training in protecting people from danger. He hates weddings, and never plans to marry, but when his close friend asks him to protect his future sister-in-law from a stalker he can’t say no. He never expected to experience the feelings that he has for Veronica, but once she finds out he’s a werewolf they won’t matter anyway. Things really heat up between them. But is it enough for Veronica to get over her hatred of werewolves and for Lucas to release that not all marriages are fake? Or will Veronica’s stalker keep them from ever finding out? I received an e-ARC of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Ok. This was a good book but I still had to give it only four stars. The prejudice in this book was a little overwhelming. I know it's out there (of course, not for werewolves) but this went almost a little too extreme. Of course, it ended as they always do and that was great but the middle got a little frustrating. I also didn't realize this was the second one in a series. It didn't feel like it was. You don't have to read the first one to read this one. That's always nice.
*i received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* Veronica is a wedding planner with an distinct aversion to werewolves. Her preduices run deep due to her sister being turned after an attack. Unknown to Veronica the secret admirer she has is really a werewolf stalker. Logan has been sent to be her bodyguard until the stalker is caught. Little does Veronica know that Logan is also a werewolf. This is a well crafted book with humour, sexual tension, honest truths and some action all thrown in. I really enjoyed it and will be looking for more from this author.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is my first book I have read by Kristin Miller. And I am glad I read it. It was sweet, super sexy, suspenseful, and fun. This story was a very quick read mainly because you could see it play out in your head like a movie. I love when that happens. The author truly creates beautiful imagery and scenes that appear in your mind. Logan was so amazing. I loved how he was so strong and protective right from the beginning. How he knew they were meant to be during their first encounter. Veronica was a great female lead. She was strong and independent. I loved her transformation throughout the book to where she opened her eyes and saw Logan's true self. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two and was glad for their ending. The stalker story was a great secondary one. I had a feeling I knew who it was and glad the author didn't do the crazy twist I had going on in my head, because that one I wouldn't have liked. The story tied up quite nicely and I would love to read more of the series.
I loved this book! I loved the chemistry between Veronica and Logan. I will defiantly be reading more books by this author
Fabulous story filled with humor, romance and suspense!“If I ever fall in love with a werewolf,” Veronica said…“shoot me.” Wedding planner Veronica Vale hates werewolves. Her sister was bitten by one and it has changed their relationship, and now she hates all werewolves and blames them for what happened to her sister. “I’m saying that a werewolf took Leah from me. He took away the only family I had left and ripped my heart out.” Hired to protect Veronica from a stalker, former Marine Logan Black finds himself fighting his attraction to Veronica. Even though sparks fly between them, there is a major deal-breaker for Veronica - Logan is a werewolf… “He’d certainly be the most gorgeous werewolf she’d ever seen. He’d still be filthy, mangy, and unnatural, but he’d be a hottie to boot.” …and Logan, who is fighting demons from his past, just doesn’t believe in marriage and happy ever afters. “Looks aside, Veronica was his polar opposite. It was clear she longed for a serious, stable relationship, and that’s the last thing Logan wanted. She was a night owl, and he rose with the sun. She always noticed the good in people and he…well, years of bad experiences had taught him better.” Logan and Veronica try to fight the sparks that are flying between them. and as Veronica learns more about werewolves she starts to see that they are not all alike. “How had it happened? How had she come to depend on a wolf to feel safe? The concept was ludicrous. Backward. Why, then, did it feel so right?” Logan has sworn to protect Veronica and will do whatever it takes to see that she is safe. “Veronica might not have said she wanted to be his for all time, but damn it, he yearned to protect her with everything he had.” Things heat up between Logan and Veronica, but will they find their happy ever after, or will Veronica’s stalker come between them? This was such a great read and it had me laughing out loud and turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. I loved the humor in the book – let’s just say pussy willow and cockscomb – and thought the book had the right balance of romance, humor and suspense which made it a quick and engaging read. Even though this is book #2 in the Seattle Wolf Pack series, I don’t think I missed anything by not having read the first book in the series. I would highly recommend this book to anyone! I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I just have to add two of my favorite quotes from this book – I was literally laughing out loud as I read the passages these came from. These passages alone make this a 5 star read! “I mean, if you were my bride, for example – not that I’d ever let that happen – and you made your bouquet out of pussy willow, I’d make my boutonniere out of” – he turned a page in the binder and laughed – “cockscomb.” “Logan sucked in a clipped breath, then lowered his mouth over hers. “If you say the word thigh again, you may break me.”…”Smiling, she whispered, “Pussy willow.”
