Serena Wilde has been doing a great job taking care of the wolves in the preservation center and an even better job hiding her true self from her boss, Dr. Kearnan Gray. No matter what effect he has on her body, Serena is determined not to let a man back into her life after the disappointments she has encountered with human males in the past.

Her experience with werewolf males hasn’t been much better and it’s thanks to Alex, the possessive Alpha in her pack that she’s on the run, never staying in any one place for too long. However, Kearnan Gray has been watching her ever since she first arrived and is determined not to let her get away from him. Kearnan may think he has everything under control but he may have bitten off more than he can chew this full moon.

In the Heat of the Night is the second installment of the Heat series and I loved returning to Judy Mays’ werewolf world. Focus shifts to another Gray family member as we meet Kearnan, a guy who likes to keep to himself. I was a little unsure of the plot at first as Kearnan tries very hard to persuade Serena to stay with him. It’s obvious that he will do anything to get what he wants and I am glad that he questions whether he has gone too far, some of the time. It’s obvious that the pair needs to figure out for themselves what they want but when they finally do, it’s deliciously explosive. The introduction of Alex and Serena’s pack is a very welcome addition to their world and the descriptions of the wolves when fighting was very well done. The sex scenes were amazing and I am fast becoming a huge fan of the author’s writing.
