LONE WOLF (4) by Karen Whiddon: While visiting the site of his sister Juliet’s death, wolf shapeshifter and pack leader Anton Beck is beaten, kidnapped and taken to a cave where he’s reunited with Juliet’s best friend, vampire huntress Marika Tarus. Marika, who was with Anton the night Juliet died, has been locked away for weeks by men who want to kidnap her child, Dani, whom Anton sired and knows nothing about. Marika and Anton work together to save their daughter from those who would harm her because she’s half-vampire, half-shapeshifter — something previously thought impossible. Lone Wolf is an exciting and skillfully told tale. Marika is the epitome of a strong woman and Anton is a sexy hero.
