When her father died, Honor Tate inherited the alpha position for a pack of werewolves based in New England. But why her? Honor would have rather just lived a “normal” life, with the occasional run through the woods in her furry suit. Still, Honor was raised to put the welfare of the pack first…and now it’s time to make a formal request that the alpha of the Silverback clan—the pack to which all locals owe fealty—recognize her as alpha of the White Paw. But instead of sending his support, the Silverbacks send Logan Hunter.
Logan Hunter would do anything to protect the Silverbacks—but his devotion comes with a price. For years he has been fighting his alpha instincts and the need for his own pack. But all that changes when Logan is sent on a mission to find out whether the new White Paw alpha really has what it takes to carry on her father’s legacy. Powerful, spirited, and downright gorgeous Honor exceeds his expectations…and leaves him howling for more. Could it be that he’s finally found his alpha mate? Or will old enemies, dueling loyalties, and an appetite for destruction stop him dead in his tracks?"

Yes, this is a re-print of a very old Ellora's Cave edition; it has been somewhat updated and edited for the mainstream audience. These early books in the series are no longer to be found on Ellora's Cave web site. It is a shame since some of the edited out part are some of the steamiest and most delectable to the mainstream reader. Editors would be surprised as to how modern we women readers are nowadays!

The Patriarch and Alpha of Clan White Paw in Connecticut, has died of cancer. His beta has been taking care of things, but Graham Winters wants to send Logan Hunter to Connecticut to see how things are going and if they (the Silverbacks) need to step in while a new Alpha is declared.

You see, the person substituting for the old alpha is his daughter and having a female Alpha, while not totally unheard of is not something anyone has seen in a couple of hundred years.

It's a good thing that Graham is getting rid of Logan, because Logan is getting ready to do something very stupid and he really needs this time to cool off. What he doesn't expect is to find is that the female Alpha, Honor is her name, is his mate and she is just hours away from going into heat. Oh Dear!

Most of the book deals with Honor and Logan fighting - she wants him off her land and he is just too stubborn to go. Naturally, he does not want to lose his newly found mate.

There are a few bloody scenes and fights, but nothing you won't have read in most books of this genre -nothing to upset anyone. You will find no unusual fetishes or sexual practices in this edition.

Told with Ms Warrens usual acerbic sense of humor and a delicious sexiness and just this side of edgy sex scenes, this book was a pleasure to read. It is a somewhat fast read and I know that some readers are saying that you really need to read the first few books in the series, but I disagree. Ms Warren gives plenty of back-story so that you should not be frustrated while reading.

Definitely one you should have if you are starting to collect the whole series.
