MIA Agent Lachlan Carmichael is still coming to terms with the paranormal cases his organization works on, but has no trouble fulfilling his obligations. Years of training have made him into a competent and efficient agent. Carmichael refuses to lose a battle. His new case takes him to a small town, Rothburg, to investigate a portal opening. There’s more than paranormal activity awaiting Carmichael. Adam Farelli is going to change his world forever.

Adam knows the perception of those in his small town is wrong, but their treatment still hurts. With so much riding on his decisions, Adam grins and bears their behavior. Carmichael’s appearance in the town takes the dullness out of his everyday life and adds a yearning that he hopes is mutual. When Adam discovers Carmichael is as small-minded as those of his town are, it leaves a deep ache as nothing Adam could imagine.

Carmichael’s lack of faith causes a chain reaction, thrusting Adam in imminent danger. Will he be able to save Adam and receive the forgiveness of the one man who touched him as no other has?

Carmichael and Adam bring action, suspense, and wicked sexual heat to us in K.C. Burn’s Wolfsbane. This was a fantastic story to begin the MIA Case Files series with and left me ready for the next release. Carmichael has his issues, but watching him come to terms with his past and accept what he had to do to secure his future made this story for me. There were points where he faltered and I was sure there would be no way to regain Adam’s trust, but K.C. Burns expertly shuffled the deck in his favor. I liked Adam. After you read his story, it’s hard not to respect him and recognize what a strong man he had to be to endure all that happened. The men compliment one another and make a wonderful couple.

All the settings for Wolfsbane created the illusions needed to keep the readers enthralled with the story. Some areas invoked laughter, while others teetered between being romantic one minute and sending shivers of fear up my spine the next. From the plot to the characters, there wasn’t one aspect of this story I didn’t enjoy.
