MIDNIGHT WOLF is the eleventh book in Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound
series. Although there are characters from previous stories
in this book, I believe MIDNIGHT WOLF works as a standalone
story. Jennifer Ashley lays out the important information
for readers in the opening chapters. Angus Murray is a black
wolf Shifter, a bouncer, member of the New Orleans
Shiftertown but -- most importantly -- he is a loving
father. The villain in MIDNIGHT WOLF tries to use Angus'
love for his son Ciaran as a way to manipulate him. Shifter
Bureau is a familiar foe to Shifters, and it looms over the
heroes in this story. Henchman Jayson Haider is the jerk who
wants to use Angus to capture Collar-less fox Shifter Tamsin
Calloway for some nefarious purpose. With the threat posed
by Shifter Bureau, nothing is ever simple for their targets.
MIDNIGHT WOLF is a riveting tale of love on the run.
Gavan Murray was a charismatic screw-up whose bad decisions
have left trouble for his brother Angus, as well as Tamsin.
Angus and Tamsin's initial encounters are all about him
holding her captive until he can turn her over in order to
get his son back. Over the course of the book, as they get
to know each other and understand each other's motivations,
their relationship evolves into a romantic one. Unlike his
previous mate, Tamsin proves to be a woman of substance who
values loyalty and family. After some close observation,
Tamsin sees that Angus has a tender heart in addition to
being strong, silent, and sexy. This hero, heroine, and cub
embark on a wild road trip that draws them closer to each
other. The turning point for this crew is a pit stop at a
carnival run by a Shifter and his mate. I love meeting these
new characters and revisiting old favorites like Tiger and Ben.
MIDNIGHT WOLF is a gripping story about injustice, family,
and love - along with an adrenaline-fueled road trip. Dylan
Morrissey is usually an enigmatic character, but in MIDNIGHT
WOLF, Jennifer Ashley sets Dylan up as a sort of antihero
with an air of danger. It will be interesting to see what
direction Jennifer Ashley takes with this familiar character
in future stories. These multifaceted characters set this
series apart from other paranormal romances. I look forward
to Jennifer Ashley's next romance novel -- whether the hero
is a furry and fantastic Shifter or a highlander hottie.
Angus Murray, bouncer for a New Orleans Shifter bar, is
to round up an elusive, Collar-less Shifter woman, Tamsin
Calloway, who is causing trouble for Shifter Bureau, and
possesses information they want. If Angus refuses, he
losing his cub. He finds Tamsin but she's slippery and
about to be rounded up quietly.
In fact, quiet is nothing Tamsin will ever be. She leads
Angus on a wild chase, but he's determined to bring her
to save his son.
Can Tamsin convince Angus she's worth helping before
locked away by Shifter Bureau, Collared, or perhaps
