Lori Greypaw suspected that her grandmother would use the auction as an opportunity to fix her up. So she's not surprised when she "buys" Paul to help Lori renovate her mountain cabin for a week. Lori's had a crush on the sexy SEAL wolf for years, but he proves to be handy with more than a hammer when two fugitives come knocking and he'll do anything to protect the woman he's falling for...
It's an engaging read featuring two characters, Paul and Lori, who both know they have something tangible between them but it's been ignored for far too long.
When Paul returns home to his pack, he comes up against a wily woman (Lori's grandmother) who manipulates him into a bachelor auction and then steps back to watch the sparks fly. Lori has steadfastly carried on without her true mate, Paul, but thrown together, it's almost impossible to ignore the tension anymore.
What really works here is the fact that the romance and mating is not the only thing going on in this book. Ms Spear has sketched out a plot involving treachery amongst the other wolves and it's quite harrowing to read such an emotional story. Lori and Paul have avoided the issue between them before. With this book, they finally face the truth which makes for an entertaining read that's not too light but has just enough angst and humour to capture my attention. Seal Wolf Hunting is the 16th book of the series, however, I think it works very well as a standalone. I love the cover too.
So an alpha wolf who's a Seal? Yes, I hear my ovaries sitting up and taking notice!
I was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
Recommended for lovers of shifter stories who also enjoy romance built around a person in the military.
