Shane Dodd has lost everything, his Pack, his home, and hope. His only wish this Christmas is to live long enough to exact revenge on the Nero assassin he believes killed his Pack. But when he steps between a bullet and Piper Holland everything changes. The woman dressed as one of Santa's elves is his mate, and she ignites a flame in his heart. But hope and love are dangerous wishes for a lone wolf.
“It was always you.”
Lisa Kessler’s The Lone Wolf’s Wish is an exciting paranormal novella that bridges her Moon series with her new spin-off which features the Sedona pack. Along with some familiar faces from the Moon pack, we are introduced to human veterinarian Piper Holland and wolf-shifter Shane Dodd.
The story opens with lone wolf Shane, the sole survivor from his pack, trespassing into another pack’s territory seeking revenge on a jaguar he blames for slaughtering his entire pack. But, his mission is thwarted when he encounters his human childhood sweetheart. Sparks fly as they touch and Shane instantly realizes that Piper is his one true mate making protecting Piper his top priority. Shane takes a bullet meant for her and Piper moves the wolf who saved her life to her clinic to clean and stitch his wound. However, when Piper checks on her wolf patient, she finds a naked Shane in the cage instead of the wolf she left there to recover. How will Shane explain his presence and the wolf’s disappearance while still keeping the existence of wolf-shifters a secret? AND will this be their second chance at love or will fate drive them apart again?
Shane is a strong alpha male hero and Piper is a talented, confident and caring female heroine. I liked them both from the get-go. The glimpses Lisa afforded readers into their past are fascinating. It is thrilling to find that their chemistry had not abated over the years they’ve been apart. Expect a passionate romance, dangerous suspense and surprising twists with plenty of unforgettable sexy moments that Lisa is famous for!
Following please find a few of my favorite lines from The Lone Wolf’s Wish:
“You’re still the best kisser.”
“You make me want to be.”
“Everything was fucked up the second I stitched a hole in a wolf’s leg, and then woke up to a naked ex-boyfriend.”
“Family doesn’t have to be blood.”
The Lone Wolf’s Wish is a must-read for fans of Lisa’s Moon series. AND, if you’ve never had the pleasure, it works perfectly as a stand alone read. I concede that I’m a huge fan of Lisa’s books. Thankfully, we don’t have long to wait for the first full installment in her sure-to-be-enthralling Sedona series with Sedona Sin releasing next month!
