Review of Taming the Wolf by Stephanie Nelson


Attacked by a wolf while hiking in the mountains, Anna Avery's life just got a little hairier. Living in the Big Horn mountains in Wyoming, with a group of werewolves who are more animal than human, Anna must try to hold onto her human side. It's not easy when the alpha continues to persuade her into his bed, while another wolf is chomping at the bit to become her mate. To top it all off, dead bodies are showing up and it just so happens that Anna was the last to see them alive. She'll have to work to prove her innocence and taming the wolf who bites first and asks questions never.

This was a book with bite!  I love Stephanie Nelson to begin with and she did not disappoint in Taming the Wolf.  It was a smoldering, sexy summer read.  I might be biased with my obsession with werewolves, but damn this book was hot.

Anna is a strong willed likeable character.  She causes trouble but somehow, the Alpha let's her get away with it.  There is a strange bond between her and the Alpha that is intense.  As the story unravels, so does Anna.  She becomes unsure of her feelings towards the Alpha and is the subject of investigation for murders.

This story was full of mystery, intrigue, sex, romance, friendship and the supernatural.  The author immerses you into a world of a pack of wolves and does a great job describing it.

If you like sexy werewolf stories, this one is at the top of the must have list.  Stephanie Nelson also wrote a vampire and witch series beginning with Craved and it is fascinating as well.  Be sure to check this author out, you will not be sorry:)
