Terra's Guardians, book two
Published August 30th 2010 by Decadent Publishing
Carri has definitely caught the eye of the big bad wolf.
Visiting the Glacier Valley pack to get a little breathing room from life in the city, she uses her skills to help install a high tech airspace sensor array for her adoptive grandmother’s pack. Jason is a lone wolf, good at doing his job and good at being alone. Sparks fly between them, igniting desire hotter than Carri’s red hood. But the Glacier Valley pack has made it clear that Carri is under their protection and off limits. And yet, the heat between them is undeniable and when Carri makes her choice clear, Jason is ready to claim her as his. He’ll go against the pack and any rivals, even take down an alien hunter to have her and protect her.
While the first book in this series was a slow pace tale of a gradually building relationship, this one got to the point much quicker. And it did so without lacking a single necessary thing. Jason and Carri (Red) are very endearing, easily bonded to characters and, yet again, Schnyder very easily brings her reader into the well crafted, thoroughly researched, and beautifully constructed world of shifters. I love it when a great writer takes on shifters and actually knows what the hell he/she is doing!
Jason's a lone wolf. Not by choice. And not by force. Being on pack grounds, Jason has no rights, no reason, and no purpose other than installing the new protection sensors. He definitely has no place lusting after the alpha pair's adoptive daughter. His antisocial, loner quality gravitated me toward him from the start although he quickly lost points for going around kissing random women. Err, woman. Whatever. Hey, I refuse to believe that was his first stolen kiss. But damn him if he didn't have an empathy card up every sleeve.
Carri's open heart, and the fact that she's neither wolf or pack, allows her to see and move past the pack hierarchy, Jason's guarded defensiveness, and the bias towards lone wolves. I seriously awe-ed when Jason finally realized he didn't have to be alone anymore. I loved it. Great story. Really great wolves. What more can I say? 5 out of 5 stars.
