PACK CHALLENGE (Magnus Pack, Bk 1)
All Zach Sheridan ever wanted was to become Alpha Male of his Pack and to be left alone. What he definitely didn't need in his life was some needy female demanding his attention. What he never saw coming was the vicious, scarred female who not only demanded his attention but knew exactly how to get it.
Sara Morrighan knew this was the best she could expect from her life. Good friends. A nice place to live. And a safe job. But when Zach rode into her small Texas town with his motorcycle club, Sara knew she wanted more. She knew she wanted him. But after one sexy encounter with her dream biker, everything is starting to change. Her body. Her strength. That new thing she's doing with the snarling. Even her best friends are starting to wonder what's going on with her.
But this is only the beginning. Sara's about to find out her life was meant for so much more. And Zach's about to find true love with the one woman who makes him absolutely insane.
GO FETCH! (Magnus Pack, Bk 2)
How much trouble can one small female be to a modern-day shapeshifting Viking? Well...it really depends on local gun laws.
Conall Viga-Feilan, direct descendent of Viking shifters, never thought he'd meet a female strong enough to be his mate. He especially didn't think a short, viper-tongued human would ever fit the bill. But Miki Kendrick isn't some average human. With an IQ off the charts and a special skill with weapons of all kinds, Miki brings the big blond pooch to his knees -- and keeps him there.
Miki's way too smart to ever believe in love and she knows a guy like Conall could only want one thing from her. But with the Pack's enemies on her tail and a few days stuck alone with the one man who makes her absolutely wild, Miki is about to discover how persistent one Viking wolf can be.« less
Great book consisting of two stories: Pack Challenge and Go Fetch. Although this book is apparently out of print, both titles are now sold individually. The two books relate to a trio of friends: Sara (a wolf shifter that was raised by a reviled-by-all grandmother (also a wolf shifter) that never told Sara who or what she is), and Sara's two human friends: Miki (a brilliant, but snarky gal, that has trust issues with men/relationships), and Angelina (who, on the surface, appears to be a gorgeous but prissy girly-girl, but is anything but. She's tough, capable, and quite the smart alec). All three women have been fast friends since grade school, are hilarious, would do anything for each other, and don't take anything off of anyone.
The first book, Pack Challenge, is the story of Sara and Zach. He's the soon to be alpha male of the Magnus Pack (wolves), and she hasn't a clue as to what she is. All she knows is that she's becoming increasingly aggressive and can't quite figure out why. Enter Zach, who knows her family history and is there with the rest of the pack to help. That includes protecting her from an encroaching threat that she's unaware of. Every one of the books I've read by Ms Laurenston has been very funny and this is no exception. Zach thinks Sara's certifiably nuts but can't resist her and Sara falls into lust with him immediately and can't resist him either. They're a rough and tumble couple, which is also typical of Laurenston's books, but are perfect for each other. All in all, a great read.
The second book, Go Fetch, is the story of Miki and Conall (another Magnus Pack wolf whose best friend is Zach from Pack Challenge). Miki is a brilliant, petite, but capable woman who's known for saying whatever comes to her head - appropriate or not. She finds herself torn between being annoyed by Conall's unrelenting pursuit and wanting to jump his bones. Conall, a seriously big guy with Viking looks and heritage, is crazy about her and has his work cut out for him when it comes to convincing Miki that they belong together. Another fun read!
By the way, once you've read these two books, you'll want to know what happens to the third friend, Angelina. Her story can be found in Here Kitty, Kitty which was released back in 2006 and is evidently out of print. The good news is that it's being re-released May 1, 2009. Hopefully, by the time you read this, it will already be available!
