Jo Ferrell has been cast out of her home for reasons she doesn’t understand. The grey streak in her hair is gone, her body is younger, and there’s an ominous shadow chasing her. With nowhere else to go, Jo finds shelter in a shed whose owner she wants nothing to do with—but he’s too much to resist.
Reese Cooper has never felt a pull towards a woman like he does towards Jo and his Fox is desperate to claim her as their mate. After offering her a place to stay, Reese finds it difficult to resist his beautiful new roommate. But when dark magic threatens their happiness, Reese will use all of his strength to protect the woman he loves…if he’s not too late.
Stone Cold Fox is a fun, sexy, exciting read that will make readers want to revisit Cougarville again and again.

Jo has no knowledge of shifters and even less of the rejuvenation that she's experienced. Cast out and suspected of dark magic she's convinced something dangerous is following her. It is and she might feel safe with Reece but is it real or all part of a spell gone awry?
I feel the first half of this book suffered a little due to Jo's manner and behaviour. Her dialogue felt stilted and well frankly juvenile (pardon the pun). I did like that she's a hearth witch and thought crossing the two species of witch and shifter added greatly to the story.
Reece was a sweetie and no mistake. Technically a grease monkey as he's a mechanic but he wasn't an imbecile and had hidden depths. He is the second Alpha to play down his brains and accomplishments and it makes a real change from the arrogant heroes some authors throw at us.
There's a mystery to solve that is partially explained but there's definitely scope for more in this series. Sexy times don't dominate and thankfully it's not as sticky and messy as the last book. Plus, if you are a lover of wolves I'm pretty sure you will enjoy meeting a certain Dire wolf!
This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from NetGalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair.
