Scott Lund doesn’t have time to make connections or mistakes. Nine years of running away from his kind, those who control the minds of people, has left Scott edgy and lonely.

Rory McIntyre has one mission; to protect Scott from those hunting him. The wolf can’t believe Scott has been left alone for so long and immediately recognizes his loneliness and dejection. He takes his mission a step further than necessary and one night of sleeping in each other’s arms will change their lives forever.

Joely Skye’s Wolf Town is Rory’s chance at love. The story has a quick cameo with Trey from Feral and gives us a chance to experience Minders abilities. Rory’s initial reaction to Scott and ability to read his body language told me he wouldn’t stay away from him long. I couldn’t help but like him even more after he discovered the hidden aspects of Scott’s past. When the truth was revealed, I could see the heart of Scott’s champion start to ache at that moment. I wasn’t sure how Rory’s wolf was feeling about Scott, but he didn’t seem to be too upset about sharing space with the frightened man.

There were a few interesting supporting characters that added a nice dimension to this story, and I hope to learn more about them in future episodes. Wolf Town has a touch of action and suspense but primarily focuses on Scott and Rory’s developing feelings, as well as keeping Scott safe. I would have loved to see Rory shift just once, but having him stand up for what he believed in was more than enough show of his dominant nature. Those who’ve enjoyed past stories will find Wolf Town an interesting and fast-paced read.
