Wolf Signs
Book one: Granite Lake Wolves
by Vivian Arend

Genre: Romance, Werewolves
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
Talk about getting your signals crossed ...

Robyn Maxwell doesn’t care that her brother has to cancel out on their backcountry ski trip. She can do it alone. The fact she’s deaf doesn’t make her survival skills any weaker. The chance to get away from it all and relax in the Yukon wilderness is just what she’s been craving.

Meeting wilderness guide Keil at the cabin starts cravings of another kind. Keil’s one hot hunk of ripped, tasty male. Now she has to deal with raging hormones as well as strange questions about wolves and mates and challenges to the death.

Keil was trying for a nice reflective retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn’t planning on meeting the woman destined to be his mate, or finding out she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf.

Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week—and his bed—is suddenly full.

Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind…

Warning: Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “talking with your hands”. Includes dangerous use of sarcasm and hot nookie in a remote wilderness sauna.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): trigger
Loved the characters. And loved the way the story of this werewolf world unfolds. We learn about werewolf ways through the main character, Robyn, who is also new to it.

The fact that Robyn is deaf also makes for an interesting story telling. Communication and basic instincts are in the forefront.

  1. rotflmbo ... *dangerous use of sarcasm and hot nookie*! LOVE it!

    Why yes, Wolf Signs sounds rather interesting, even if my hormones no longer *rage* (sometimes they pout or weakly protest, but that's about it these daze lol)

  2. Lol, getting it on in the sauna is not a good idea, I die when I am in the sauna, 80c, yeesh

  3. Wow, the mere fact that the female protagonist is deaf makes it that much more interesting than other novels dealing with wolf-shifters!!!
    Thanks for the review!
