The wolf shifters in the Wahyas of Walker’s Run miniseries have unique traits, and the third book about these fascinating beings has an original storyline. While many of the characters in CHARMED BY THE WOLF are not human, they still have the same emotions and dreams. I liked how Kristal Hollis makes her human heroine just as intriguing as the supernatural hero, and I really wanted a happy ending for the main couple despite their different views. Filled with heartfelt emotions and unanticipated developments, CHARMED BY THE WOLF is an enthralling romantic adventure.
As a sentinel for the Wahyas wolf pack, Tristan Durrance makes certain all those like him stay safe. He also works as a deputy for the local sheriff’s department, and this makes humans his responsibility, too. Since he has no wish to be mated, his focus is only on both jobs and not on looking for a suitable female. When Tristan first comes in contact with Penelope Buchanan, he offers his assistance in fixing her car, and though she is an interesting woman, flirting is all he will ever do with the human.
Since Nel is working at Walker’s Run Resort for the summer, Tristan ends up running into her on many different occasions. During each episode, the connection they felt from the beginning only increases. While Nel might be willing to take a chance and see where things could go with him, Tristan thinks there is no way they could ever have a lasting relationship, especially with him being a wolf shifter.
Family is exceedingly important to pack members, yet Tristan has often felt he was denied any caring concern by his own relatives. Though he kept himself from reacting to their many slights, I could tell how much he was affected and wanted to give him a big hug. The growing feelings between him and Nel are also frequently left unspoken, and the author definitely gave them some troubling issues to overcome. I was drawn into the lives of Tristan and Nel from their first meeting, as these two are genuine and have very animated personalities. Each has suffered through circumstances which influence their current outlook, and while she thinks it is time to change some aspects of her life, he believes there is no reason to have hope when it comes to relationships. Kristal Hollis always creates realistic characters whose true-to-life behavior makes me care about them. I really like how Tristan and Nel brought out the best in each other.
There are some suspenseful incidents in the story, and I feared the worst during these uncertain predicaments. The author definitely makes things dicey for her couple from time to time. Although Nel and Tristan’s relationship does have its share of problems, they do enjoy some rewarding activities together, from thrilling outings to steamy sex. Many characters from the two earlier releases in the miniseries make appearances, and they often play important roles by offering their support. The Wahyas of Walker’s Run miniseries has believable paranormal elements and particularly engaging characters.
