INTRODUCING SWAT: SPECIAL WOLF ALPHA TEAM
They’re on target
They’re as alpha as men can get
The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret…they’re a pack of wolf shifters.
The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn’t sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something…and she’s determined to find out what.
Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She’s smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she’s getting dangerously close to the truth—and perilously close to his heart...
HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF is two-part romantic suspense, one part paranormal romance and one part sexy. I say romantic suspense first because if it wasn’t for the SWAT team being werewolves there wouldn’t be many para to this romance. I was hoping for more wolfy times, but we only got sneak peaks into that aspect, but there’s enough, I think for PNR readers to enjoy. Although I’m hoping the next installment will flesh out more of the werewolf mythology.
HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF has some action and suspense with a heap of the smexy. While I wait for the next SWAT book, I’ll catch up on Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
