I’ve long been a fan of shifter romances—I love the Stray series by Rachel Vincent, the Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn, the shifter elements of the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. And now Bethany Shaw has joined my list of shifter series to read!
There are some relatively typical elements—the tough alpha male and the sweet “girl next door” plays out in pretty much the expected way, but then, that’s why readers love these kinds of series! And Devon and Lark have some lovely, electric chemistry.
The cliffhanger-y ending left me gasping for more, so now I’m on my way to pick up the next book in the series. Don’t look for me online for a while—I’ll be reading. 🙂
Out of the Shadows (Werewolf Wars, Book 1)
Lark Davies is the sole guardian of her younger sister, and the owner of The Cookie Jar. When she’s not working, she spends her free time at the Harris ranch. She knows that they are werewolves, but it doesn’t matter. They are her family. When Devon Harris shows up at the ranch, Lark finds herself instantly drawn to him. However, Devon makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. But when enemies attack the ranch, Lark and Devon find themselves working together to save the people they love most. Their mutual attraction intensifies the more time they spend together. Lark has known werewolves existed for some time, but she never knew how dangerous they could be.
Devon Harris has lived under his stepfather’s tyranny for too long. When his stepfather forms an alliance with a dangerous werewolf pack, Devon knows it is time to leave. He and his younger siblings seek refuge at his Uncle Rick’s ranch. There he meets the fiery human Lark. Devon instantly feels the attraction to Lark. With a war between the packs on the horizon, Devon tries to keep Lark at arm’s length. As battle lines are drawn, and Lark is sucked further into his world, Devon can no longer ignore Lark’s allure. Can Devon protect his family and keep her safe? He can only hope.
