Wolfpack Delta gave Ryden Coulter’s life purpose after the attack that not only changed his life, but destroyed his only hope for happiness. While the woman he left behind is always on his mind, he knows that his new-found strength lies in the power of his wolf, not in his heart…or so he thinks.

Being born for the sole purpose of saving another’s life isn’t quite the way one imagines coming into the world, but Carlee O’Shannon knows no other reality. The one time she ever opened her heart, she lost it all. Vowing to never let another person hurt her that way again, she’s unprepared for Ryden to come back into her life.

Together again, out of necessity rather than desire, Ryden and Carlee will be forced to fight not only for their lives, but the lives of Ryden’s unit. Secrets and danger lurk beneath the surface, and it will take more than the strength of a lone wolf and the woman he loves to fight their way out.

I’m usually not a big fan of alpha males, or werewolves, but Wolf’s Heart is a definite exception. Even though Ryden is an alpha male, he doesn’t act like a douchebag (which is usually my problem with alpha males). Carlee was my favorite character though, she’s sassy, she’s intelligent, brave and sometimes surprisingly funny.

Back to the story. Carlee is an FBI agent working on a case that may threaten her life. She’s never had much luck in life. The sole reason her parents wanted her born was so she could save her brother’s life – but when that failed, they rejected her. When she finally fell in love with someone, he broke her heart. Now she’s devoted her life to helping others, but this time around, it gets her in big trouble.

Surprisingly, her ex-boyfriend, Ryden, shows up to save the day. He’s a werewolf and an Elite Delta soldier. He never wanted to hurt Carlee when they were together (yep, he’s the guy who broke her heart) but he had no other choice. Now he’s saved her, but the troubles aren’t over yet. Ryden and Carlee will have to fight for their own lives, and the lives of Ryden’s unit.

I loved the combination of a kick-ass FBI agent and an alpha male werewolf. Both Carlee and Ryden have strong personalities, and they’re not afraid to fight what they believe in. Unfortunately they don’t see how well they match, and spend most of the time bickering and worrying about the past and getting hurt again.

This wasn’t just an insta-romance, and the characters definitely developed throughout the book. The plot was intriguing too, and there were plenty of hot romantic scenes to keep the reader entertained.

Highly recommended to fans of erotic paranormal romance.
