Ghost Wolf-Michele Hauf

Ghost Wolf
Michele Hauf
Harlequin Nocturne, Oct 1 2014, $5.75
ISBN: 9780373009299

Raging and grieving, Beckett Severo seeks vengeance against human hunters after he witnessed one of that pathetic species shoots and kills his father, and worse had to break the news to his hysterical vampiress mother.  Two months later, Becket runs into a female wolf shifter near Tangle Lake who impressively leaves him with a mean right to his jaw. 

Daisy-Blu Saint-Pierre hopes to obtain the Tangle Lake Tattler reporter internship by doing an article on the Ghost Wolf, who has been seen recently in the vicinity twice by frightened hunters.  She plans to ask Beck if he knows anything about the Ghost Wolf when she runs into him again.  Meanwhile Beck finds each shift increasingly drains him to the point he fears he soon will die from what was once natural but not since fairy magic changed him into the Ghost Wolf.   As he and Daisy Blue bond, she learns his secret.  If she reveals what she knows in the Tattler, she would surely get the position she covets seemingly more than her wolf; while his craving for revenge leaves their love teetering.

The first Saint-Pierre werewolf romance is a pleasing frolic starring two appealing protagonists whose youthful enthusiasm makes the tale, but also leaves something permanent between them doubtful.  Readers will appreciate their energetic romp even as danger threatens the two shifters.
