The Wahyas of Walker’s Run miniseries has always been original, and the fourth release is even more creative than the prior books. Pairing a she-wolf shifter with a man who can turn into a raven is definitely interesting, and Kristal Hollis made each moment in the story truly believable. From fascinating circumstances to well-developed characters, I always felt as though any happenings in CAPTIVATED BY THE SHE-WOLF could actually take place just as described. The world envisioned by the author is certainly unique, yet had me wanting to think the place could really exist somewhere, especially since many of the characters are so likable.
After the death of her mate, Ronni Lyles is able to move to northeast Georgia and join the Walker’s Run pack. The female wolf-shifter now has a good job and can provide for her teenage son, so she is in no hurry to choose another mate. But when Ronni gets word that her brother-in-law wants her son to be his family plus make her his wife, she needs to quickly find a solution which will keep the demanding man out of her life.
A new resident in Maico where Walker’s Run is located is Bodie Gryffon. He has come to the area because the protected sanctuary belonging to the wolves is a great location where his daughter can live without coming to harm. Both he and his child are raven-shifters, and they could become prey to many different beings. An event has Bodie and Ronni connecting, and they agree to an arrangement that will benefit them both. Yet when feelings become involved, the deal they made becomes more complicated.
Though this is the fourth book in the miniseries, the story would still be enjoyable even if the other books had not been read. The previous romantic couple are featured from time to time, and it was great catching up on their lives plus seeing them interact with Bodie and Ronni. There are lots of individuals in the story, some nice and others not so pleasant, and the personalities of each one came alive with the author’s careful portrayals. Bodie is a wonderful hero, as he is thoughtful and has a such delightful sense of humor. I laughed so many times because of his sharp wit, and his ponderings while in bird form are often priceless.
How Ronni responded to the new man in town showed they had a strong bond, but they had so much going against them ever having a permanent relationship. With Bodie being a raven shifter and Ronni being able to turn into a gorgeous wolf, they have different abilities and beliefs. Toss in an interfering relative along with those who follow the old ways, and this couple had many obstacles that could keep them apart. I never knew from one minute to the next what they would face, and I was in for numerous surprises and plenty of heartfelt incidents. CAPTIVATED BY THE SHE-WOLF is an enthralling paranormal romance where situations are always imaginative and often depicted with candid honesty.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
