Derek Sommers has finally had enough of his parents meddling in his life.  When they start planning his wedding to a woman he does not really know or like, he does the only thing he can think of – run.  Hoping to make peace with his brother, he heads to Stone Ridge, where things are not always what they seem.

Paws for Change is the 28th book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series.  This story brings together family members of characters we already know.  The first is Derek, who is Deke’s brother.  Derek feels guilty for not sticking up more for Deke after he is treated poorly by their parents.  When Derek himself leaves home, he decides to try and make things right with his brother.  It is just after entering Stone Ridge that he meets the other main character, Dillian. 

Dillian is Edwin’s, another character readers have met before, godfather.  Feeling lonely and missing his godson, Dillian heads to Stone Ridge.  The first meeting between Dillian and Derek is a little intense and surprising, and has a bit of a “holy cow” feel to it.   As readers of this series know, once mates meet the draw between them is strong and hard to deny.  It is no different for these two.  Drawn together, the two men waste no time getting to know each other.  The relationship between these two does have its obstacles which, of course, lead to some entertaining moments. 

Fans of this series are sure to enjoy this newest addition to Ms. Richard’s long running series.  While some of the books in this series should be read in order, this one can stand on its own, but I would highly recommend that first timers to this series refrain from doing so.
