Alger and the other shifters in his little pack are in hiding.  For one reason or the other, Alger and the others are all considered rare in the shifter world.  Fear of being captured by one of the more predominate shifter societies has kept them afraid to ask for help.  When Alger sneaks away to the county fair, the last thing he thought he would do was come across his mate.

Run, Alger! Run is the newest addition to the Wayne County Wolves series.  Fans of the author’s Lost Shifters series know that the Wayne County Wolves is a spin-off centered on the wolf pack ruled by Chris.  This is also the same pack that Russell’s pack merged with, explaining why the first two stories in the series have been about members of Russell’s former inner circle.  Nico was Russell’s beta and, like other members of the former pack, is having a little trouble adjusting to the change. Alger is a rabbit shifter, something that’s believed to be extinct in the shifter world. 

I really liked this story.   The author does a great job pairing couples together and Nico and Alger are no exception.  These two clash from the beginning and the attraction between them is intense.  I liked seeing them come together and once they do, they heat up the pages.   Since the men are shifters, their world is not a quiet one and the author throws a lot of conflict in that keeps the reader’s interest.  The action found in this story is not the only thing that will hold your attention however.  Many previous characters show up playing the role of secondary characters that help move the story along.  There is also the introduction of new characters who I am sure will eventually find stories of their own. 

This was a fun read and one I will read over again.  Readers should know that while Run, Alger! Run is a stand-alone story, this series is one that should not be missed.
