My Review:

This boxed set contains three previously published lycan romances: Past My Defences, This Weakness for You and Crazy Over You. I’d actually read and reviewed two out of the three already but I still enjoyed re-reading them ☺ Each story involves a wolf shifter meeting their mate – and encountering disbelief. dangers, peril, angst and turmoil before they stand any opportunity of gaining their ‘happy ever after’ together. Each story is well paced with great characters and plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader enthralled.

In the first story, Past My Defences, Vanessa is the heroine is a super heroine werewolf but is severely allergic to cats and marshmallows – along with a whole list of other foods! When she meets Dane Hansen, the park ranger who finds her debilitated in wolf form and takes her home to try to save her – then is amazed to discover a naked woman in the cage instead of the silver wolf. However, he’s also the person looking after the cat that brought her down, they scent match but there’s lots to happen before they actually get togehter!

Jordan is Vanessa’s pack alpha and the hero of the second story, This Weakness for You. In this story the heroine is Dane’s little sister and the ‘owner’ of the cat that triggered Vanessa’s reaction. When you also know that Jordan has tried to kill Dane, you know things won’t go smoothly for them! There’s some dramatic action and it just shows that sometimes it takes a woman to see the bigger picture and solution – but I’ll let you read it to find out what I mean!

In the third story in the trilogy, Crazy Over You, continues the story running throughout the trilogy but this time the it starts with the heroine, LeeAnn, waking the local sheriff, Travis Flynn, whilst sat on him holding a knife to his throat! From such inauspicious beginnings things just get worse as she won’t believe the brother for whom she is searching, could possibly be a murderer and nor does she believe she’s a lycan – though all the other lycans can sense that she is.

The stories link well together with a common plot thread running between them. Many characters appear in all three stories and all have tense moments and others that will have you laughing out loud. Wendy Sparrow is a highly talented writer, bringing her paranormal world to life within the pages of her stories, complete with easy to relate to characters, mystery, danger, romance and a brilliant dash of humour. This is a great collection and thoroughly enjoyable read!

Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review.

Synopsis

Sometimes a wolf is all you need.

What do you get when you mix Alphas and sheriffs and park rangers? Three sexy tales of wolf shifter romance from the talented Wendy Sparrow sure to keep you up past your bedtime! With one click, immerse yourself in a rich world of danger, intrigue, a little humor, and more than a little heat.

Past My Defenses

After a feline danderbomb takes Vanessa down, she wakes up naked in a cage staring at a hot park ranger who has no idea what he’d trapped. Dane Hansen had hoped to tame the silver wolf in his kennel, but all bets are off with the deliciously sweet Vanessa on two legs. They’re hot as a forest fire even before they scent-match. Meanwhile, Lycans are being poached, and Vanessa has been targeted. Dane will have to keep her close to protect her, but with Vanessa in heat and mad to mate, who will protect him?

This Weakness for You

Jordan Hill is his pack’s Alpha wolf, and after his last breakup, he’s opting to be the lone wolf, too. But when his rival’s little sister—a human—comes to his door, what should be a tasty snack turns out to be something more than Jordan could ever imagine. Christa Hansen is simply looking for a place to stay. Yet the dark shifter smells irresistibly like forever. But getting involved with the wolf who tried to kill her brother—twice—is lunacy. Falling for her family’s enemy won’t just be her downfall…it will be his, too.

Crazy Over You

Waking up with a naked woman holding a knife at his throat is just about the last thing Sheriff Travis Flynn expected. And the brother she’s looking for? A murderer. And dead. Probably. But the real shock comes when she insists she’s not a Lycan. Once LeAnn Wilcox finds her brother, she’ll get out of the pack’s territory and go back to her regular, nonfurry life. But LeAnn’s life is at stake if she won’t claim her place in the pack, especially once Travis’s control over the pack is challenged and her brother’s fate is questioned.
