And the search is on for a super awful sick and twisted bad guy. Ya - he sounds like one of the worst I've read about, but we haven't actually met him yet. We heard stories in The Werewolf Bodyguard and got some clues as to where he might be, but now there's a crack team of werewolves off searching for him. Except, two of the just might be a little distracted by the whole mating fever thing.

Rainier DuBois leaves a secure life as a leader of the Black Wolves Rangers in order to help his alpha find the source of a reported rash of unbonded wolves. Unbonded wolves are unsafe. They represent a threat to the security of hidden packs all over the world. Rain’s only mission is to lead a new team of enforcers from all over the country into the heart of Mexico to find a madman.
Until he meets Nora Cavanaugh.
With an overbearing father tracking her every step, Nora sees the mission to Mexico as a way to escape Daddy’s grasp. She will do his bidding while she must, but every spare moment will be devoted to chasing away the demons of her last lover. Only when she hooks up with Rain, the familiar edge of magick won’t leave her alone. But Nora can’t afford to indulge that magick, or she will put herself and the mission…and Rain…in horrific danger.
As much as I enjoyed all the fun places they managed to get some nookie, it really distracted them from their mission. As enforcers for their packs, this seemed to be just a little too unrealistic (even for a werewolf romance) for my taste. It not only distracted them, but it really caused some other issues as well.
Now, don't get me wrong, these two were perfect for each other. Nora has some past issues that cause some more serious issues. But Rainier handles them beautifully and tries his best to sweep in and save the day. It was also a nice chance to get to meet the rest of the team sent to track down the "evil bad man," all of whom play a big part - sometimes the starring role - in the books to come.
While this wasn't my favorite story - I did really enjoy how it moved the series story arc ahead in a very interesting direction.
