Blurb from goodreads:

Mia’s testimony against Russian mobsters forced her to enter the witness protection program. She is relocated to a quaint cottage in Wolf Woods, near Mt. Rainier, far from everyone and everything she loved and cared for. All is calm, until she meets Dominic, the gorgeous ruggedly handsome owner of the mysterious Wolfe Estate. He is all alpha male, domineering, and controlling. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a sexy control freak.

Alpha werewolf, Dominic Wolfe, is the packs’ enforcer. When an attractive young woman moves into a cottage near his territory; his senses are heightened to obsessive proportions. A human pet to meet his desires. Dominic is determined to unveil Mia’s real identity while keeping his own securely hidden.

Haunted by the howls and shrieks coming from Dominic’s estate, Mia wonders if she can really trust the enigmatic man she suspects of wanting a dominant-submissive relationship. A man who brings out her darker desires. Will hidden danger keep them from gratifying their burning passion?

CarolKat's Thoughts:

I was approached to do a review for the Nook by the author and had purchased this book before she sent me a review copy.  Many of you know I love shifters and romance so when the two are combined I guess I couldn't help myself.

Ms. Gordon has changed the dynamic I'm used to seeing in shifter novels to one that that I am not sure I like.

There is a lot going on here, Mia is in Witness Protection, she only has two neighbors and one is a bit of a snoop (Ellen) while the other is a sexy billionaire (Dominic) with most of his staff living on his estate up the trail from her.

Mia really freaks out easily since this latest move and that she even relaxes enough to get to know Dominic was interesting.

I love the Mia and Dominic relationship especially since she doesn't always cave to the alpha in him.  I especially liked that her response to him ended up with her reading erotic novels. Which leads me to one of my favorite passages:

Mia, wearing an oversized Mozart t-shirt, got off her bed and stared at her naughty books.  Like a drug addict hiding pills, she slipped the books out of site under her bed and then went into the kitchen to get ice for her wrist. Erotica books should come with a warning label.

I was a bit confused by the references to "human" & "Civilization" from Dominic since the wolves are human and wolf.  Using those words in normal conversation could out them faster than anything else.

I would really like to know more about the wolf packs and their history in future books of this series.

I give this book 3 stars.
