 An unmarried woman living in a house of men breeds heresay and lore. If only the villagers knew the truth.

It’s not Jem Stonehouse’s marital status that brings unwanted strangers to town. Rather, it’s that she is the only female werewolf in existence — a prize to any pack.

Sean Holloway, the love of Jem’s life, has gone to great lengths to protect her. As a new attack becomes imminent, Sean realizes he must take greater measures with Jem’s safety or risk losing her forever.

His first task must be to marry her, but a force greater than the largest werewolf stands in his way.

 

Review: This is my first Holloway Pack read, and I must admit that, while it wasn’t my absolute favorite paranormal shifter romance, it was still an enjoyable read. I think the biggest problem that I had was the fact that it started out extremely slow for me. I couldn’t grasp what was happening in the beginning, for it went from a sexual encounter scene to something else entirely.

But, with that being said, once I pushed on and became captivated by the story, I found that I truly enjoyed Sean and Jem’s characters. I really felt for Jem, a young woman who is the only female werewolf around and is forced to live in a home filled with male werewolves. The people of her town look down upon her, they whisper about her behind her back.

Sean’s character ended up being my favorite. He knew that having Jem living with them was creating a stir but he had to keep her there, had to protect her. When issues arise, the only way he can do that is to marry her. But, it’s not as easy as it looks, especially when a werewolf enters the picture and wants to make a claim on the beautiful Jem.

Ms. Banfield did a fabulous job at creating a historical backdrop for this story, and really ended up making a story that was filled with steamy romance,seduction and suspense. While I feel that the beginning could have been a little less dragging, the over all story was well written, and I do recommend it to all who enjoy a paranormal romance filled with shifting sexy men and the women that capture their hearts.
