Dire: The Dire Wolves Chronicles
Gage was the first guy I ever wanted. He was my first crush and my first fantasy, but he wasn’t my first in any other way because he never saw me as anything more than a friend— at least not until the night that changed everything.
It was all Gage’s fault. He insisted we drive through the storm and take the back roads. By the time the storm hit full force we had no chance. One night of snowbound sex changed our relationship forever. The problem was at the same time I caught another guy’s attention. This other guy happened to be the alpha of a pack of shifter wolves. I thought the wolves were the worst of my problems, but I was wrong. When things went from bad to worse I had to make a lifelong sacrifice to save Gage, but what price is too much to save the one you love?

A single howl made me stop short. “The wolves!”
“Let’s hope they are farther away than they sound.” Gage tightened his hold on my hand and pulled me forward.
Three more howls filled the night. “They sound closer.”
We picked up the pace, and I chanced a glance behind me. That was a mistake. Several large grey wolves came into view. “Run!”
Gage didn’t need to be told twice. He broke into a run without letting go of my hand.
I ran as fast as possible over the frozen snow, but we didn’t get far before the wolves started circling around us. “Oh my god.” Could things get any worse?
“You have to make a run for it.” Gage’s voice quivered. “They’re going to kill us.”
“I’m not leaving you.” I tried to stay strong, and I kept my eyes locked on the wolves. There were five of them. All of them were massive, much larger than any wolf I’d seen before, but one of them was even bigger and had a large silver streak running down its back. That wolf seemed to be staring right at me.
“I’ll distract them. You run. I’ll catch up.”
I spotted an opening next to one of the smaller of the wolves and went for it. I didn’t make it far before one of the wolves stepped in front of me. I froze, paralyzed with fear, before my legs were knocked from under me. Suddenly, I was lying in the snow with a giant wolf hovering over me.
“We’re fucked.” Gage voiced exactly what I was thinking.
The silver streaked wolf stared down at me. It’s almost glowing eyes bored into mine. Was I really going to die as half-frozen food for a giant wild animal?
Then things got hazy and the air seemed to buzz. Moments later it wasn’t a wolf on top of me—it was a man. A completely naked man with a faint scar across his face.
“What the heck?” I tried to scurry back, but Hunter didn’t move. His very exposed parts nearly touched me. I didn’t want to notice his size, but I did. He was huge. He also didn’t look remotely concerned with the cold.
His lips brushed against my ear. “Were you going somewhere?”
STEPHANIE AND BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK RATING: ★★★★
Well, it may not have been what I was expecting, of course I don’t know many girls who head home for a break at college and end up being taken in by men or wolves or witches. But hey, if it’s gonna happen, you may as well enjoy the ride and the company.
When Gage and Mary Anne headed to their hometown in the middle of a crazy snowstorm, everything that could have gone wrong, well… it did in a completely unexpected way with a completely unexpected twist. The snowstorm just keeps getting worse but Gage is determined to get them home. But of course being alone in the truck with the man of your dreams is never going to be enough… being alone in the back of the truck with the same guy in a sleeping bag… well now we may have ourselves an adventure. But getting to that point has already made this a trip to forget. Something dashes in front of them in the snowstorm and now they find themselves stranded.
It’s time to find a phone and call for help. They know they will never survive if they stay with the truck so the head out on foot. But when they finally do find someone that can help, it turns into an even bigger nightmare. Hunter is hot, dark and mysterious and has no phone. He does have a warm place for Mary Anne to stay and he can certainly accommodate having Gage around if it keeps Mary Anne close by.
Wait what? So Hunter has a thing for Mary Anne, Mary Anne has a thing for Gage… Gage just wants to protect Mary Anne from this entire nightmare… and Hunter… well he wants something else.
This is a crazy adventure and I have to say I would be super disappointed if I didn’t know in advance that there will be other books to follow it up. It is well written, has a great edge to it and is completely paranormal hotness in the forest. I was intrigued from the first page until the last. The most disappointing part of this story for me was when I was at the end and my Kindle wouldn’t let me turn the page. Nope… I wanted more. This is a great book and worth the read and I am now anxious to read the next book!
