Homicide detective Conner Stern is hot on the trail of Khemirra Reis. He doesn’t know what the sexy reporter is running from but he’s obsessed with finding her and intends to keep tracking her until he does. 

Khemirra knows she needs to stay far away from the sexy cop who doesn’t want to have anything to do with the supernatural.  It’s just too dangerous to allow him to get close, but that’s what happens when they met and he rescues her from some attackers. It puts them together and after some passionate kisses, they give in to their carnal desires, which make her inner wolf convinced that Conner is their destined mate.  

Conner wants her and Khemirra needs him but can he pardon her two secrets…she killed a man and she’s a werewolf.  What’s a cop to do? Can he forgive her and make a future with the woman who drives him crazy? 

Conner’s Wolf is release six in Jory Strong’s Supernatural Bonds series. If you want to go back to where Conner and Khemirra met and where this storyline left off, you’ll need to read Trace’s Psychic, the first book in the series and published in December of 2004.

The opening scenes give a good indication of how much Conner is obsessing over Khemirra. He’s a forceful kind of guy and his desire for her is almost stalker-like in its intensity. Khemirra is just as intense and edgy…out of fear and from her desire for Conner and what it will mean to her and her wolf. Once Conner and Khemirra get together, the physical part of their relationship is immediate, powerful and passionate, but the sex takes over the plot. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very well written sex but it seemed to go on for pages when I was looking for the real meat of the story.

Once back to who is chasing after Khemirra, the story picks up again and so does the pace. It’s here that Ms. Strong’s story really caught my attention, reminding me in this last dangerous action packed section why I liked Conner so much from the first release.
