Ervin’s at loose ends, now that his old pack as merged with another one, and wonders if the new changes will be good for him.  When he goes out for coffee with his friend, he’s surprised to find his mate and that his mate wants nothing to do with him. 

Ervin’s Dilemma is the first book in Ms. Hecht new series, The Wayne County Wolves, which is a spin-off of her current The Lost Shifters series.  This story was a great start for the new series.  Ervin is a character we have met before and I liked watching him deal with getting a mate, especially after the way he acted when we first met him.  This tough warrior is having a rough time of it as he tries to cope with the changes facing his pack.  Used to being a bad ass in a pack that skirts the fine line of the law, Ervin has no idea how to cope in a straight, upright law-abiding pack.  He runs into even more problems when he meets Miles, his mate.  Miles is considered a rogue wolf, through no fault of his own.  Things become tougher after the death of his parents and, with no help from other packs, it soon looks like Miles and his siblings will become the latest victims of the Ravens.   

Ervin’s Dilemma is a fast-paced story that packs a lot of action into just a few pages.  While the men have their bad times, the connection between them is intense and I liked the way Miles trusts Ervin with his family.  I also liked the way the author reintroduced various members of the Wayne County pack so the reader has the chance to learn more about them.  Like the previous series, the shifters in this series are battling the Ravens and the human threat that was recently introduced into the plot line of The Lost Shifters series.   I can’t wait to see what else the author plans to introduce in this new series and look forward to the next story.
