Sometimes there are great finds at local library book sales. I just happened to find this one by author Jenna Leigh. Since this was one of my favorite genres I decided to pick it up, and really how could I go wrong for a dollar.
The plot features a mad scientist who is kidnapping women to make them into breeders for werewolves. When Lanie's college roommate is kidnapped by a nightmare of Lanie's past, Lanie uses her reporters instincts to find out what is going on.
Her search takes her to her childhood sweetheart, Marcus, for help. When Lanie and Marcus come back together all of their feelings from the past rush back to them. Lanie knows that Marcus can help her get into a society party and help her find answers. But Lanie doesn't really know the truth of her past with Marcus and what exactly she is getting into.
Marcus is a werewolf and leader of his pack. His father had hopes of making Lanie his own mate, but with the intervention of another werewolf, Lanie actually becomes Marcus' mate instead. Marcus can't keep his hands off of Lanie. He also can't help but be protective over her, but is it really love or merely the workings of his mad scientist father.
In The Wolf's Heart readers are shown the good and evil in the Were world. I liked the playful, sexy side of strong alpha Marcus and the definitely feisty side of Lanie's personality. Both characters are perfect for each other. Even in the height of what should be a horrifying situation, Lanie can keep her sense of humor and her wits about her. Just my kind of character.
There were some confusing points in the plot and since there doesn't seem to be any continuations to the cliffhanger endings I was a little disappointed, but all and all a good read.
When a nosy reporter reunites with a werewolf in tycoon’s clothing, sparks fly and passions ignite. The burning question is, who’s taming who?
Investigative Reporter Elaine Westerbrook is determined to find the answers to the questions that haunt her. Plagued all her life by dreams of creatures that can’t possibly exist, she’ll do anything to get the information she needs, up to and including reigniting a fire with the deliciously mysterious Marcus Bei—a fire she thought extinguished long ago.
Marcus Bei fought tooth and claw to be an Alpha in the corporate world but it’s nothing compared to being Alpha of his pack. It’s lonely at the top as the Lupin of the Arizona werewolf pack, but that’s the price he’ll pay to keep his pack safe from his father and others like him. So when childhood sweetheart Elaine walks back into his life, his first instinct is to shove her right back out again. But Marcus can’t find the strength to push away the very thing his other half has been waiting for so long—his mate.
Together, Marcus and Elaine search for the truth and find out if they have a future in spite of a past threatening to tear them apart. Will Elaine run when she discovers what Marcus really is, or will she accept The Wolf’s Heart?
