Granite Lake Wolves, Book 4TJ Lynus is a legend in Granite Lake, both for his easygoing demeanor-and his clumsiness. His carefree acceptance of his lot vanishes, though, when his position as best man brings him face to face with someone he didn't expect. His mate. His very human mate. Suddenly, one thing is crystal clear: if he intends to claim her, his usual laid-back attitude isn't going to cut it.After fulfilling her maid-of-honor duties, Pam Quinn has just enough time for a Yukon wilderness trip before returning south. The instant attraction between her and TJ tempts her to indulge in some Northern Delight, but when he drops the F-bomb-"forever"-she has second thoughts. In her world, true love is a fairytale that seldom, if ever, comes true.Okay, so maybe staging a kidnapping wasn't TJ's best idea, but at least Pam has the good humor to agree to his deal. He'll give her all the northern exposure she can stand-and she won't break his kneecaps.Now to convince her that fairytales can remake her world-and that forever is worth fighting for.
By popular demand: Clumsy sidekick wolf grows up, sarcasm reigns, and the wilderness gets wilder. Includes hot nookie in places you expect-like a remote cabin-and places you don't.

Crystal's Quick Thoughts:
I was excited for TJ's book, being the Alpha's little brother we've seen a lot of him throughout the series. Clumsy yet lovable, I was anticipating this HEA for him.
TJ shows exceptional growth in Wolf Tracks and Vivian Arend pens it fabulously; he's finally growing into his paws so to speak and it has a great deal to do with finding his mate. A mate who happens to be human and a few years older than him. And while I enjoyed his story, I unfortunately didn't connect with the heroine Pam as well as I have past heroines in the series. I liked that after some convincing Pam accepted the presence of werewolves in the world and didn't take any crap from TJ (you know those domineering and possessive wolfish tendencies) while still standing up for him to everyone else, but Pam was a little too brusque for my tastes. I just couldn't get into her character.
The story-line itself was good though, kept me turning the pages and moved at a fast pace. Now I'm really looking for to the next book which is play-boy Jared’s in Wolf Line.
