But Seth Alwen, his new partner, is different. He excites the wolf’s animal instincts – waking up the passion Conner buried long ago. Seth’s not only beautiful and alluring; he’s also haunted by the death of his former partner. And despite his better judgment, Conner aches to relieve the man of his guilt.
Seth’s a seer, but ever since his old partner died his powers have been on the fritz.
Enter Conner Sharp, Seth’s sexy and mysterious new partner. While the dark-haired stranger ignites Seth’s desire, he also awakens the seer’s power with every touch. Seth sees their future together – a future rich with lust and danger – but is it a future the enigmatic Conner wants?
As the two men solve a series of murders, their sizzling attraction overflows into the bedroom. Is the overwhelming passion just a fling or is it forever?

Alpha’s Shadow (Rogue Wolf Book Two)
Conner Sharp, a rogue wolf and murder detective, was supposed to be an alpha – until his pack betrayed him and left him for dead. Then he met Seth Alwen, his new partner, and things started looking up. The beautiful seer lusts after him – even if he keeps an infuriating number of secrets.
But something dangerous is stirring inside Conner. The urges of an alpha wolf he buried years ago are rising to the surface. Whenever Seth is near, the beast threatens to unleash itself on the man Conner cares for the most – the man who might be his long lost mate.
Seth never thought he’d shack up with a shifter, but Conner’s allure is impossible to deny. How will his boyfriend feel about Seth’s carefully guarded past, and the secrets that could rip their relationship apart?
Can Seth deal with the new alpha side of his lover while confiding in Conner what their future holds?
While the two men grapple with desire and trust in their relationship, a new murder threatens Haven City and all her shadow folk. A murder that brings Seth and Conner front and center to a dangerous necromancer and the one group of people the seer wants to avoid more than anything: his own family.
Contains graphic m/m sex scenes
NOTE: This is a previously published work. The title, author, and/or publisher may have changed.
I am use to using other reviews to bounce around ideas with but this one just doesn’t have many out there. In the story we have two injured souls, I really feel they were both betrayed by family. I could see how they could connect with this between them.
Seth is recovering from losing his best friend and partner to a on the job shooting that he had forseen and didn’t tell her about. He is plagued by guilt that is added by his family that he didn’t save her. Connor is Seth’s new partner. Connor is a rogue wolf, made that way by his own family that ambushed him and left him for dead. He feels something for Seth right away but it isn’t what a mate is suppose to feel like and Connor is rogue so believes he CAN’T have a mate. Connor also hates lies…he knows his partner is lying to him so how can he be falling for the man.
I liked the plot line. It was paced well with an interesting premise to it. The crime and the mystery around it are interesting. I admire the author’s ability to weave together several storylines and connect them throughout the book. The trouble I had was the wording. I think it was a little over the top, especially during sex scenes. Sometimes a little is better than a lot. There also was one word that kept bugging me…”buckle”. I always have seen this as “My hips buck into my palm” not “My hips buckle into my palm”. I know this is small but it REALLY bothered me.
The characters were very well drawn. I felt like they could be real. They fell into their character lines and grew appropriately within them. The author really does have flair for creating characters.
I enjoyed this story overall. I did wish the descriptive verse used by the author was toned down just a bit, other than that it was a captivating story with amazingly realistic characters. I will be looking to read more in this world.
