For most of his life, Santana hated werewolves in the belief they slaughtered his parents. It’s only after his joins a radical group, determined to wipe every werewolf off the face of the planet, that he learns it’s all been a lie. When he stands up to the group leader, it lands him in trouble that almost gets him killed. 

Isaac knows falling for the man that shot him is nuts. He needs to stay away from Santana but can’t and his desire only becomes worse the closer it gets to the full moon. Learning Santana risked his life for him opens Isaac’s heart.  Can he convince Santana to become his mate and share his life as a werewolf? Can they win against the hunters? 

Santana’s Discovery is the newest release in Lynn Hagen’s Shifters of Mystery series. Due to the continuing storyline and returning characters, the books should be read in order. 

I admit I wasn’t expecting this storyline…at least not the part of how Santana and Isaac got together. I mean Santana shot him. It’s not exactly a normal way to meet a future mate but it’s certainly a catchy twist. That’s not the only reason I like this second release. Santana’s had a rough life and the story of what happened to his family pulls at the heartstrings.  How can you not feel bad for this guy? But it’s only the beginning of the intense emotions swirling throughout the plot of this book. Both Santana and Isaac feel strongly for the other but each try to deny it for a long time, allowing the author to get them together slowly and realistically. 

I like Isaac but I love Santana. He’s alternately funny and grumpy. I never knew what to expect from him and it definitely kept Isaac on his toes. But he’s also tender-hearted, kind and loving. Just the kind of man werewolf Isaac needs for a mate. Don’t get me wrong. Isaac has a lot to recommend him too. Put these two men together and you have a winning combination packed within in a well-written and entertaining story I really enjoyed. Add these factors together with some great secondary characters (some I expect to see in the future), action, suspense, passion, desire and humor and you’ve got a story you won’t be disappointed in. Watch for Jeremiah's Heart coming next.
