Book Tour for Two Howls by Sean Michael (Review)

Fans of the paranormal will find Two Howls by Sean Michael an action-packed m/m read full of unexpected and steamy twists and turns.  Keep reading to get a tantalizing taste of this latest installment in the ARe Alpha series, along with learning my impressions of it.  Then make sure to add it to your bookshelf....

Max is on the run, but is he running from his past, or toward his future? Only Ulf knows…
Werewolf Max knows desiring males is wrong, but he can't help himself. When his pack nearly kills him in an attempt to cleanse him, Max runs. Jumping on his motorcycle, he heads north.
Ulf has lived on his own in the wilds of Northern Ontario for a long time. When he catches the scent of a stranger in his territory, he’s angry at first, until he realizes that Max is more than just another werewolf. They’re mates.
Ulf must make Max believe that two males can be mates, but just as he’s about to succeed, Max's past catches up with him. Will the home they've been hoping to build together be lost for good?


This short m/m-themed story put a paranormal twist on the discrimination those who are gay face everyday.  In the wolf shifter world it's not seen as acceptable and in some packs leads to death.  In this story two men who know they're different form their own pack as destined mates to fight against those who would try to take their happiness from them.

This is an enjoyable story with appealing characters and a thought-provoking universal theme that while not accomplishing anything groundbreaking, it does entertain.  The flow too enhances the reading experience keeping readers on the edge of their seat waiting for trouble to arrive.  While waiting for trouble we're served a sweet and sensual romance between two men who know what it's like to be alone and finally find peace with each other.

Max was running for his life when he stumbled across Ulf.  While there was tension and fear at first it quickly turned to acceptance and a sense of safety and soon more.  Max was a likable soul looking for a home as he's tired of being alone and he had my sympathy.  Ulf is a bit rough around the edges, a bit domineering, and likes being alone...or so he says.  Max brings out his protective side as he recognizes him as his mate and they'll have a fight on their hands to keep the home they've made with each other in this tension-filled story.  Overall, it's a good read and those looking for a little afternoon delight will get just that here.

My rating for this is a B.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Often referred to as "Space Cowboy" and "Gangsta of Love" while still striving for the moniker of "Maurice," Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channeling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to "Chicago."
A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.
Barring any of that? He'll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
