An untriggered werewolf. A runaway Omega. It’s not easy fighting destiny.

Tad Maxwell’s workaholism serves to keep his bush pilot company in the air, and his inner werewolf in check. In the two years since he discovered his heritage, he’s resisted the longing to test the power of his wolf side. It would mean compromising his human principals.

Then Missy Leason re-enters his life. Ten years ago, their teenage attraction never went beyond hand-holding. Now their chemistry is off the charts, pushing him closer to the step he’s not sure it’s safe to take, especially with a human.

But Missy is more like Tad than he realizes. She’s wolf too, and a wolf pack is a dangerous place to have secrets. Missy’s alpha has sniffed out her carefully hidden Omega powers. Her first response: run from the corrupt alpha’s plan to make her his mate. Step two: get to Tad, and hope like hell his untapped powers are strong enough to negate her own.

Every touch with Missy is hot, hot, hot, but even finding out she’s pure wolf doesn’t solve Tad’s dilemma. Is she using him, or are they truly destined mates? Only one thing is certain. He will defend her to his last breath—on his terms. Even if it means losing his life.

Warning: Contains nasty Alphas, secret Omegas and werewolves acting raunchy on the dance floor. Sarcasm, wilderness cabins, and hot nookie back by popular demand.


Title: Wolf Flight
Author: Vivian Arend

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Year of release: 2009

First line: The Whistler pack house was crowded after dinner, with small groups gathered around the room talking among themselves.

QnD-review:
Ingredients/Summary: A creepy Alpha packleader who knows the heroine's secret, a hero who is isn't chomping at the bit to let his wolf come out and play, a heroine who gets the surprise of her life when she discovers who and what her childhood crush really is.
Hero: Tad Maxwell, romantic, caring, struggling with his inner wolf, stubborn
Heroine: Missy Leason, strong, stubborn, inventive
Plot: As the widow of a high-ranking wolf within her pack Missy is the target of power hungry packmembers, trying to raise their standing within the pack, including her brother-in-law Doug, the Alpha. She thinks she's found a way to outsmart Doug by using Tad.
Writing: Easy, fluent, down-to-earth. Getting into the mood of the story from the very beginning was no problem at all. I really like Vivian Arend's humorous and sexy writing style.
Likes:
  • Liked that Tad's story takes place simultaneously with Robyn's (WOLF SIGNS). Makes both books easier to read as stand alones.
  • The humor in the teasing between the characters.
  • The end was great, perfect end to a wonderful novella.

Dislikes:
  • The conflict and pace of the story. Missy should've told Tad sooner she knew he was a wolf and that she was one too. It would've moved the story along a bit quicker.

Verdict: Another wonderful book by Vivian Arend but liked WOLF SIGNS just a tad better.

39, married to my real life romance hero, addicted to TV shows, reading romance novels and Twitter. I'm a chronic (e)book hoarder and my absolute favorite genres within romance fiction are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I don't shy away from historical, paranormal or erotic romance either. Even the occasional (urban) fantasy romance, futuristic and sci fi romance may make it to my Mount TBR. This is my corner of the world wide web where I let you know what books I'm hoarding, reading and reviewing.
