“A werewolf with amnesia. That can’t be good.” — Natalie Richards, chef
the tiny apartment of the hot, soft-hearted woman who rescued him is a fine
solution while “Fella” figures out why he was bleeding and abandoned in an
alley, though the bigger issue might be that he is convinced he’s not actually
Accidentally bringing home an injured werewolf with amnesia is looking like the least of Asheville chef Natalie Richards’ problems as break-ins plague her restaurant and the mutilated bodies of local women start turning up in the nearby state park. No one’s past is perfect, but this might be taking karma to extremes.
The shapeshifting Foresters have a killer to stop, a pack to save, and no time for love. Too bad Fate has other plans for these five cousins—as does a ruthless opponent bent on vengeance.

Packed with heroes!
By K Corkran
to lovers gets an exciting new twist when woman's proverbial best friend turns
out to be a werewolf with amnesia. Natalie takes in a hurt stray named Fella,
only to discover that she's fallen for a wolf who can shift into a mostly naked
and entirely gorgeous man. Fella has no idea who he is or how he came to have
this ability, but they soon discover that he is no lone wolf. Fella, or rather
Ripper, belongs to a hidden world of half forgotten myths in which werewolves
can embody all of the noblest qualities of the wolf or instead be twisted into
monsters that are far too human in their vices. The villains do not pull their
punches in this book, either literally or metaphorically. There are some brief
scenes of violence against women, including sexual violence, although it is in
keeping with the darker nature of werewolves and the myths which have
surrounded them. By contrast, Ripper's pack is a rollicking extended family
that perfectly suits the small southern town where they live. Charming, a bit
eccentric, and fully fleshed out whether in human form or sporting fur, the
Foresters are great company. But the uncle who raised them has kept secrets
from them to keep them safe, and now bodies are beginning to pile up on their
mountain. To borrow a line from the story, there is a 'surplus of bastards'.
Fortunately, there's plenty of heroes and heroines to rise to the
challenge--and to make me hope the next books in the series hit the shelf soon!
