Dr. Gordon Digby was called in to help the rescued shifters at the Stoneridge Pack.  As a therapist, he’s more than happy to help the others, but as a shifter, he knows there is no help for him.  The last thing he really needs in his life is a mate, yet that’s just what he finds when he meets Detective Grady Stryker. 

Accepting his Animal is the third story in the Wolves of Stoneridge series, it is also one I have been eagerly  awaiting.  The story is about two shifters, Gordon Digby and Grady Stryker.  Neither man is an official member of the Stoneridge Pack, yet both have close ties to it.  While fans of this series know what animal form Grady is, Gordon was a mystery, with only a couple of hints by the author.  I must admit that I did not expect the form he took, yet once it was revealed the authors previous clues were obvious.  It also made Gordon’s reluctance to change understandable. 

As for the romantic connection between the two men, Gordon and Grady fit together really well.  While Gordon may hesitate, Grady knows what he wants and goes after it.  I liked watching the two of them together.  Of course, there is still the issue of the poachers and the author threw in a few twists and turns on that subject.  We are also introduced to the next couple to get a story and, once again, the author has left me wanting more.  This is a fun series and fans of shape-shifter stories should give it a try.
