Sworn to the Wolf by Lauren Dane
Series: Cherchez Wolf Pack #2
Published by Carina Press Genres: Paranormal
Rain Foster is a part-time painter and a part-time waitress so she can pay her bills and buy art supplies while hoping to get that one chance to prove how good her art is. Rain is also on the run from a violent family past and has tried to keep clear of anything that might point to where she is now. Rain’s life turns upside down one morning when a tall, dark, and beyond sexy man walks into the cafe where she works. Rain really has no interest in working on a relationship right now, but Laurent is a true force when he wants something, and Rain is unable to say no.
Laurent Cole is a natural born werewolf and the second in the Cherchez pack. Laurent has been searching and hoping to find his mate for years now, and he never expected to find a spunky human waitress who made his wolf stand up and howl. Once he knows just who Rain could be for him, Laurent wastes no time in getting a date and, hopefully, the mate he has yearned for.
Rain experiences so many highs and lows right as Laurent comes into her life. She finally gets a shot at not one, but two shows at a gallery and has great chemistry with a hot guy. Then when she tries to learn about his family, she learns the truth behind the Cherchez pack and just what she would have to expect if she agrees to be Laurent’s. Time seems to stand on hold as Rain and Laurent work on just what their future will be. Just when it seems that happiness is at their fingertips, Rain’s past catches up with her, and she is hurt in a way that affects her, Laurent, and the entire pack. As time passes, will Rain and Laurent be able to put the deep hurts behind them and grab that bright future that was theirs for such a short time?
A werewolf and a woman on the run find out that love comes with highs and lows that can raise you up or destroy you in Sworn to the Wolf. I instantly loved both Laurent and Rain and the passion that seemed to roll over them from the first moment they met. Watching as Rain learned the ins and outs of being a werewolf and pack life with Laurent’s help had me smiling and shaking my head in a few places. My heart also hurt for them as life turned dark, yet I was cheering all the way through hoping that in the end Laurent and Rain would be victorious and their love would reign. I have come to love all the members of the Cherchez pack and can’t wait to see which wolf will be next to find his mate and the love that awaits them when they do. Sworn to the Wolf takes passion on a roll with lots of laughs, sighs, and cries until love wins the day with two special lovers.
