To have and to howl…
Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.


“If I ever fall in love with a werewolf,” Veronica said, as she stared at a drunken wedding guest being escorted out of Seward Park, “shoot me.”
“Famous last words.”
Veronica Vale, wedding planner extraordinaire, folded her arms across her chest and gazed up at the cords of white lights streaming over the dance floor. “I don’t care how powerful they think they are, take them out of wolf form and they’re nothing but overgrown dogs in need of a muzzle.”
“Ouch.” Heather, her assistant wedding coordinator, eyed the bridal party as they waltzed to a beautiful rendition of “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” Huffing, Heather leaned over and bumped Veronica playfully in the shoulder. “Remind me not to get on your bad side.”
“I’m sorry, but there’s no excuse to get all worked up, especially at a wedding. Just goes to prove that they’re animals. Completely incapable of controlling their anger.” Veronica’s thoughts whirled around the incident that’d barely been avoided. Mr. Grady, the groom’s canine uncle, was offended that he’d been removed from the lineup of people to toast the bride and groom. The order came straight from the groom, but she was the one who had to relay the message and take the brunt of Mr. Grady’s anger. Veronica’s heart pounded in her chest as she strained to lower her voice. “If we hadn’t caught Mr. Grady when we did, seconds before he shifted, he would’ve burst through his tuxedo in front of everyone. Body hair suit?” She scoffed. “Not exactly wedding couture.”
Heather laughed. Veronica was grateful she had a friend to talk to about the werewolves in Seattle. If she had to bear the burden on her own, she didn’t know how she’d handle it. As it was, thinking about her older sister, Leah, being attacked last year and turning into a wolf made Veronica’s arm hair stand on end. It didn’t matter that Leah had accepted the hand she’d been dealt and fallen in love with a born werewolf from the Seattle Wolf Pack.
They were unnatural and had serious anger issues that turned them into beasts. If it weren’t for Leah getting info from her werewolf fiancé, Jake, and tippingVeronica off as to which wedding guests could shift into the mangy things at the Grady wedding, Veronica wouldn’t have known to watch out for the groom’s uncle in the first place. There were a handful of other wolves attending the Grady wedding—from what her sister had said—and Veronica had assigned Heather to keep a close eye on all of them.
They couldn’t be trusted.
With a start, Heather whirled around and leaned into Veronica’s shoulder. “Don’t look now, but hes staring at you again.”
Veronica scanned the dance floor, and as a couple spun by, her gaze caught on the guy who stood on the opposite side of the floor, the one who’d been checking her out all evening. His body was slender but powerful, with square, broad shoulders that tapered down to narrow hips. His tuxedo enhanced his frame, hugging his biceps and pulling at the seam in his groin. The way he stood, with his arms folded over his chest and his feet shoulder-width apart, screamed dominance. He had a body that made Veronica’s thoughts nosedive from vanilla to downright dirty.
Veronica’s breath hitched and she glanced away, studying the DJ as if she hadn’t noticed him, yet.
“He hasn’t taken his eyes off you all night,” Heather continued. “Maybe he’s your secret admirer!”
“You really think so?” Veronica had been getting notes and flowers for weeks, but had no clue who sent them. It was thrilling, knowing someone out there cared enough to surprise her that way. “But wait, I don’t know that guy over there. From the sound of the notes, my admirer has met me before.”
“Okay, maybe he’s a stranger who thinks you’re hot. Either way, you have to go say something.”
“Umm, that’s a no.” Veronica pretended to laugh as the song changed to something more upbeat. “He’s probably looking at you.”
“Please. If I wanted to nail a guy like that I’d have to stand as far away from you as possible so there wouldn’t be any distractions. In case you haven’t looked in the mirror in a while, you kinda steal the show.”
Heather gave Veronica a once-over, adding an eyebrow wiggle for dramatic presentation.  She got an A for effort, but Veronica wasn’t buying it. If she was as hot asHeather always insinuated, it wouldn’t have been months since the last time Veronica rolled over and fetched a bone.
Feeling nervous, Veronica adjusted her simple black dress and crossed her feet at the ankles. “Thank you, but now’s not the time for personal business. We can talk about that in two nanoseconds when the reception is over.”
“You know, the one major plus to planning weddings is all kinds of hot, single guys show up, and I’ve never seen you take advantage of it. Not once. It’s okay to mix business with pleasure, you know.”
Veronica sighed and fidgeted with the spaghetti strap that’d slipped off her shoulder. “It’s never okay to mix the two. Besides, there is more than one good thing about my job.”
“Free drinks?” Heather swiped a champagne flute off the tray of a passing server and nodded in thanks.
“No”—Veronica let her gaze skim the dance floor, from the couples moving in time to each other, to the white lights crossing overhead, to the moonlight-tipped waves of Lake Washington shimmering in the distance—“you get to witness really great love. Think about it, Heather. This couple will remember today as the day they were blissfully happy. Today is the day they love each other the most, when everything is perfect and magical. When things get tough, they’ll think back to this. It’s kind of special to think that I—we, had a hand in it.”
“You are kind of a wedding genius, and I’ll scream your praises to everyone I meet,” Heather said, sipping on her drink and turning back around. “But if you wanted to bark up that guy’s tree at the end of the night, I wouldn’t tell a soul.”

Not having read the previous book in the Seattle Wolf Pack series I wasn't sure what to expect.  What I got was a delightfully sweet yet sexy story with an amazing hero that was to die for.  This story reintroduced a few characters from the previous installment but this book can definitely be read on its own as its storyline mostly revolved around the serious-minded Veronica and her loyal and sexy bodyguard Logan fighting their feelings while keeping her safe from a stalker.  From start to finish I was completely immersed in this story, while drooling over Logan every moment, and kept on the edge of my seat as the story raced to its heart-pounding conclusion.

Veronica has always been the responsible sister. Her parents always expected her to help her sister and it's something she still does today.  In her job and in her life she's always trying to make things right for others, even at the expense of her own happiness.  She's a strong-willed and serious person focused at all times.  Ever since her sister was attacked by a werewolf, and become a part of the Seattle Pack, Veronica's life has been turned upside down.  For so long it was just her and her sister and now she feels lonely as her sister has a new family to connect with.  Her reactions at this time felt a bit juvenile and selfish at first.  It felt as though she was begrudging her sister her happiness and it rubbed me wrong.  Veronica felt alienated though and has a prejudice against all werewolves because of what happened to her sister which makes her feelings towards her new bodyguard Logan even more complicated.  She's drawn to him the moment she sees him, attracted beyond all reason, and enjoys the care and support he gives her but hates his werewolf side thinking it will make him a crazed beast and that she'll be hurt.  It will take a lot to convince her otherwise, but as she digs deeper into his soul she'll see a man worth loving.  Logan brings out a better side to her, a side more inclined to have fun and be freer.  As her stalker gets closer she'll see a different side of Logan that at once frightens her yet makes her feel safe which makes their path to a HEA even more uncertain.  No matter how things end, she's a better person for being with Logan and I liked the woman she became by the end of the story.

Logan had me at hello!  He's a sexy yet loyal man to those he cares about and those he's hired to protect.  He's kind hearted and playful and recognizes Veronica as something special the moment he sees her which has him running from the truth.  He's not fond of commitment, doesn't believe it exists after witnessing his mother's numerous marriages and eventual abandonment of him once she met her true mate.  He's the king of one-night stands but knows that Veronica means more than that.  Their interactions as he's guarding her are full of sexual tension and playfulness that made him endearing.  He brought laughter to her life and opened her eyes to a new kind of family if only she'd put past hurts behind her.  He's a true romantic at heart that belied his roughly masculine exterior as he said many things that brought a tear to my eye and made him the epitome of a romantic hero and has me still dreaming of him.

The sexual interactions between Veronica and Logan were hot and nicely spaced throughout the story as to allow their connection to grow.  Their time out of the bedroom was fun and flirty with lots of playful interactions that made me smile and were utterly charming.  The mystery that brought them together was equally well done as the suspense was subtle at first yet built in momentum to an exciting and pulse-pounding conclusion.  The culprit was well-hidden at first but slowly became apparent as the story progressed.  I did enjoy the surprising twist of the villain's identity and its ramifications to what befell Veronica's sister.  It nicely tied these two stories together even further.  The epilogue too was a perfect way to wrap up the story and was immensely heartwarming and will make lovers of romance sigh in happiness.  I found this a delightful story from start to finish and look forward to more books in this series.

My rating for this is an A-.
