Review – Black Gold (Takhini Wolves #1) by Vivian Arend

Their wolves are howling at the moon. Their human halves are on different planets.

Lone wolf Shaun Stevens’s automatic response to the words “happily ever after”? “Kill me now.” Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.

One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.

When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her caribou research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define-something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.

Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done-and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.

It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…

Warning: Two strong wolves getting exactly what they deserve. Includes wilderness nookie, shifters being naughty in public places, the Midnight Sun as a canopy for seduction and grizzly shifters on the loose. Oh, and don’t forget the sarcasm.

Another great wolf series from Vivian Arend!!! Black Gold: Takhini Wolves, Book 1 is a great start to a new series. The series maybe new, but the characters aren’t all new. We are in a new Pack though. This book centers around Shaun the helicopter pilot from the Granite Lake series. If you remember he got in a tad bit of trouble for flying TJ and Pam out and not sticking around to tell anyone where they were.

Shaun is feeling restless, and he doesn’t know why. His Alpha thinks he needs a purpose to his life and to basically grow up. Little does he know his next charter has the reasons for him to do both of those things. Gemmita has come to the north from Georgia, and she is in for a tad bit of culture shock. She grew up on a family compound surrounded by only shifters, and only being allowed to shift on special occasions due to a law that allowed humans to shoot a wolf on site without consequences. Last thing she expects is to meet her mate Now that she has how do they solve the problem of where to live?? Will either of them be willing to move?

I LOVED this book!! I love that Gem makes Shaun work for her love. She doesn’t just roll over because he is her mate. She is a really strong wolf in her on right. There are a couple scenes that had me laughing out loud, because the harder Shaun tries the more he tends to get her fur up. Hehehe!! I know you guys will love this one as much as I did!! 🙂
