Angus Murry has done all that he can to stay on the right side of the Shifter Bureau. Not that the rowdy crowd of humans and shifters at the bar where he works would ever give him too much cause to cross any lines. Moral or otherwise.
His reasons for wanting to avoid run-ins with the law, 'such as it is' run a bit closer to home.
In the form of one teen aged male cub named Kieren.
A cub that he will do anything to keep safe. Even if that anything means working for the one organization that he despises most.
And as an extremely rare fox shifter, her body offers Hader a chance for all manner of
Apprehending Tamsin and turning her over to his betters should be all in a day's work for the famed tracker. But one look at her beautiful red fox form; and later, at her even more comely human one.
And Angus knows that come hell, high water, or Shifter Bureau, there is no way that he can turn her away.
But first he has to rescue his son.
Midnight Wolf is quite fast paced read for the first 85%. With Angus taking the lead right from the start. Complete with "white knight save the princess at all costs complex" surely embedded.
Tamsin quickly does her best to make herself indispensable to both the story and Angus.
She is smart, sexy, and a very lighthearted change to Angus' guarded and businesslike demeanor.
Though the journey from "first meeting" to the obligatory "first mating" is an eventful and very interesting one. As a matter of plots go however, it is very formulaic.
A saving grace from said predictability being the myriad of likeable characters that we encounter as the now Bonnie and Clyde of shifterdom, plus 1. Make their way from wherever to wherever.
This wandering takes place for an inordinate amount of time and pages. While secrets further tying the two, or should I say three together are unearthed. Leaving plot twists that one can see coming for miles, are mulled about. Rather sloooooowly.
This is a very fun read that starts, speeds up, and peters out interest wise, far faster than it should.
But worth the read, nonetheless.
