Review: Lone Wolfe Protector by Kaylie Newell

Lone Wolfe Protector (Wolfe Creek #1) by Kaylie Newell
Paranormal Romance, Werewolves
Ebook (201 pages, COVET)
Maggie Sullivan is back in Wolfe Creek, determined to find out why her best friend vanished one fog-shrouded night a year ago. But it quickly becomes clear that if the folks in the secluded mountain town know what happened to her friend, they aren't talking.
Seasoned sheriff's deputy Koda Wolfe reluctantly agrees to help this beautiful woman, even as he tries to convince her to leave for her own good. Soon he's compelled to protect Maggie from herself, his family's ancient curse, and a killer who could strike again.
The nights heat up in more ways than one as Maggie and Koda begin a fiery relationship. But as they delve deeper into the disappearance, the eerie woods come alive with secrets bound to tear them apart. And someone is watching their every move.

If you like an element of suspense... (4 stars)

I like to call myself Covet's biggest fan. Since the imprint launched I have read them all. But LONE WOLFE PROTECTOR is the first one that had me head-scratching whether it really belonged under the imprint. Romantic suspense is so not my genre but I do enjoy a good mystery element which LWP really delivers on. I honestly can't elaborate on what ultimately made me decide it wasn't well suited to the imprint without spoiling the story but if you're not usually into paranormal romance this might be a good one to check out.

In spite of this not really satisfying my PNR hankering I did enjoy it. Wolfe Creek is one creepy place and the mystery, while I had it figured out pretty quick, makes for an anxious read. Koda and his brother Zane are rather opposite figures but I really liked them and was kinda wishing for more of a love-triangle element. Not to be though, as a possible love interest for Zane gets involved in the plot and I like her too.

While it wasn't a mind-blowing read, I liked it as a series starter and am looking forward to diving into more of the Wolfe Creek mysteries and hopefully finding out about the mysterious family curse. If you're in the mood for a transition read to carry you from one genre to another I think this one will be a satisfying place to get started.
