Romance Book Review: Mina Carter's Running From the Pack
Author: Mina Carter
Penny is on the run from her pack alpha who wants her to be his mate. She is not at all interested in being his mate or part of his pack. She runs to a small town that she wishes she could settle down in. She thinks she's okay until Cade Steele comes to town. Cade is a lone wolf who was sent away from the pack a long time ago, but he always had a thing for Penny. When he hears that her old alpha has found her, he goes to warn her right when she's just about to go into heat.
Can Cade save her before she is forced to go and service her old alpha and if he can does he want to make her his own?
For those who like a good werewolf story, here's a quick novella that features a little of everything in a short story package.
It's never easy staying ahead of the pack, but for Penny, it might just save her life…
Since ditching her pack after an offer she “couldn't” refuse from her tyrannical pack alpha, Penny’s been on the run. Always on the move, she never stays in one place for long, avoiding other werewolves like the plague. As the full moon approaches, this one brings with it her toughest challenge yet—her heat phase. And so, rather than letting her animal instincts rule, to force her to bed the first man she comes across, Penny hatches a plan that involves a basement and chains, but sadly, the non-kinky kind.
But lone wolf Cade Steele has other ideas. He's watched Penny from afar since she was turned, and now that he's found her, he's determined not to let the little she-wolf face her heat on her own. Cade is wolf enough to match her animal instinct, and alpha enough to claim her. As his mate, her body may become part of his territory, but her heart would be an altogether different matter.
When Penny’s past finally catches up with her, her ex-alpha isn't taking no for an answer this time. The question is, with their lives on the line, can Penny and Cade answer the call of the wild?
