Never Cry Wolf by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Never Cry Wolf is a wonderful book and I think it is my favorite (and I liked them all) of the Night Watch series so far.
This is Lucas' story, who we met in the first book (Eternal Hunter). He is the alpha of the LA wolf pack and a very dangerous man who has fought for his rightful alpha place in life. He also has a weakness for the underdog and when a small woman comes to him for protection he finds her hard to resist.
With a dead body on his doorstep Lucas finds himself on the wrong side of the law when Sarah King gives him an alibi for the murder. Since he has never met her Lucas knows that something is up with her - that she wants something in return. The murdered man was her friend John who had come to Lucas for help yet with Sarah refusing to reveal her deep secrets, Lucas does not trust her.
Sarah is a Charmer and all charmers have a special animal connection, Sarah can communicate with wolves and has a rare talent of communicating with werewolves while they are in their animal form. Her talent is so wanted that another alpha (Rafe), a previous lover, wants her back and also wants Lucas dead for a different personal reason. To achieve both tasks Rafe uses several others in his effort which include coyote shifters, demons and other wolf shifters. Lucas and his pack must fight several battles to save themselves and protect Sarah.
The chemistry between Lucas and Sarah is sizzling and every time we think Lucas and Sarah can trust each other something else about Sarah is revealed which keeps you guessing about what will happen until the end.
