He let her father chase him off once, but this time nothing is getting in his way.
Fletcher Stone was forced out of the pack life, and now he makes his living as a hired thug, living day–to–day without honour or commitments. Shame over his choices and his lifestyle keep him from returning to the pack to claim Delaney – the woman who holds his heart. But when a rival pack hires him to kidnap her, Fletcher takes his chance. Now he must convince her that he never wanted to leave…and reveal a betrayal that will break her heart.
Delaney Jones has spent the last five years convinced the man she loves is dead. Nothing else would keep him from her. So when Fletcher shows up, whole, healthy, and very much alive, she's devastated – and pissed off. He broke her heart once and he's never going to get close enough to do it again.

Lone Wolf’s Captive is by Sherilee Gray. This is not only the first book of hers I have read but also was her debut into the world of books. The cover attracted me from the start and I just had a feeling I was going to love this book. And…I did! Don’t let the short length fool you, there is a lot packed into these seventy pages. This book was generously provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. Fletcher Stone and Delaney Jones met when Fletcher was fourteen years old. He had been kicked out of his pack, was alone and starved. Delaney rescued him, took him home and into her own pack. They were inseparable ever since. Until five years ago. Fletcher just disappeared. Delaney knew he must be dead. There was no other reason he would have left her. They were in love. They were to be mates. So she grieved for him but never really got over him. Leaving Delaney was the hardest thing he had ever done. But he had no choice. Now is his chance to explain everything. But what he has to tell her is going to break her heart. Fletcher isn’t proud of what he has had to do in the past five years to survive, of the man he has become. But now, Delaney is in danger. This is the kick he has needed to finally explain everything. So Fletcher kidnaps her. He just has to get her to listen. Once he tells her, will she stay? Delaney can’t believe it’s really him! He’s alive. But the joy quickly changes to anger. Where has he been? Why didn’t he let her know he was alright? Why did he leave her? Now she wants answers. I absolutely loved this book! It had everything I love, beautiful wolf shifters, love, some steamy scenes, and so much more. As I said before, there is so much packed into this short book. And I loved the epilogue. If you enjoy this genre, I hope you’ll give this one a try. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did. I definitely will be reading more by this author.
In less than 50 pages Ms. Gray has created a surprisingly fully fleshed-out and compelling story full of angst and interwoven with a few super steamy encounters before its suspenseful ending that leaves the door ajar for more shifter stories. With its story of reunited lovers, a physically scarred hero, and a nefarious plan from someone close to home, I found myself fully immersed in this story and rooting for the main couple to overcome adversity and reach their HEA. Fletcher's life has always been one of struggle as the scar and damage to his eye was seen as a weakness and had him cast out from his pack. The only bright spot was the day he met, and was befriended by, Laney. As she helped him become a part of her pack their relationship evolved from friends to lovers but his low self-esteem kept him from claiming her completely. Her father fed into Fletcher's feelings of inadequacy forcing him away from her under a veil of threats that drove Fletcher to choices that hardened his heart. Fletcher never stopped trying to protect her though and when he hears about a plan to kidnap her he makes it his mission to save her. Their reunion doesn't go smoothly at first but he finally has the chance to redeem himself as he stands up to all those who once saw him as weak and he becomes an unexpectedly integral part of the pack. Fletcher is ashamed by the violent man he became after being sent away but it's given him the strength to finally claim Laney completely in some very steamy interludes where he's a commanding presence. Laney is a kind-hearted and loyal heroine whose heart was broken when the shy boy she loved went away without a word. In the intervening years it's hardened her heart and it makes for an emotionally charged reunion. Just when she grasps some happiness with Fletcher she's thrown into a whirlwind of betrayal by someone close to her that might end her HEA before it begins. Laney is an admirable heroine who only asks for honesty. She sticks up for herself but is willing to listen too which made her the perfect match for Fletcher. I enjoyed Fletcher and Laney's relationship as adults but wish we'd gotten a bigger glimpse of their time together as teens. Seeing their deepening connection through the years would've made their loss even more poignant. The sexual interludes were nicely spaced throughout the story too and showed Fletcher's evolution into an Alpha which set up the surprising and immensely satisfying ending. From start to finish this was a compelling and emotional journey that introduced a mysterious and appealing secondary character and a villain whose ending is left undone. For being a story short on words it's definitely not short on entertainment and I hope Ms. Gray will revisit these shifters soon.
So much heat, humour, and heart-wrenching story packed into this little novella! I enjoyed every moment of ‘Lone Wolf’s Captive’ which sucked me into the paranormal world of rival shifter packs. Sherilee has an incredibly compelling voice which manages to be both snarky and yet laden with genuine emotion. The hero, Fletch *pauses to fan self* was smoking hot and wow, I wanted him for myself. Delaney, was fun and ballsy and I loved the contrast between her sweetness as a young woman and the kick-ass heroine she grew into. I can’t wait to see what this author produces next…hint: More from the Black Hills world, please!
My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!! ***Received ebook from Harlequin Enterprises Australia for an honest review The cover is awesome, but I’m very partial to eyes. A great pair of eyes always attracts my attention :) might be the whole window into the soul thing :) This is only a novella length story according to Amazon about 67 pages, so it doesn’t take long to read. This is an adult book as there are some steamy sex scenes. This is the first story by Sherilee, and I liked it :) I’m hoping she will write more :) Her writing style is easy to get into and be sucked into the world :) Fletcher has some insecurities due to his past, but he doesn’t realize how much he has grown since he had last been with Delaney. Delaney has basically lived for working and nothing else since losing Fletch. Their meeting back up is explosive and makes for a great story. You get snippets of both of their back stories. I prefer full length stories usually but this was a great quick story to get my paranormal fix :) I recommend this novella to my shifter lovin’ friends who don’t have time to read a full length book and usually like to read start to finish without a break.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, Lone Wolf's Captive did just that, held me captive throughout. I really the loved the humor and added together with the steamy hot sex scenes this novella is the total package. I look forward to reading more from this author.
