Past My Defenses (Taming the Pack #1)
by Wendy Sparrow
Vanessa is the fastest Lycan around. In wolf form, the only threat she can’t outrun is her allergies. After a feline dander-bomb takes her down, she wakes up naked in a cage staring at a hot park ranger who had no idea what he’d trapped. But ooooh, he smells so good. Mine.
Dane hoped to tame the silver wolf in his kennel, but all bets are off with the deliciously sweet Vanessa on two legs. Her temper makes his pulse race, and he can’t escape the feeling they belong together.
They’re hot as a forest fire even before they scent-match, but Glacier Peak’s Alpha considers Dane a danger to the pack. Meanwhile, Lycans are being poached, and Vanessa has been targeted. Dane will have to keep her close to protect her, but with Vanessa in heat and mad to mate, who will protect him?
Vanessa may be a Lycan and the fastest one but she has issues with her allergies. They bring her down quickly. She even has allergies in her Lycan form. When a cat make her flare up her allergies extremely bad she awakes to find herself locked in a kennel. Dane is surprised when the wolf he has in a cage turns into a beautiful woman. He hasn't seen anything like her before but he just knows he wants to get to know her better. Vanessa has one thought in her mind and that is mine. Seems she has found her mate even if she doesn't want to believe it. Now the two struggle to come to an understanding. They have to work on their issues, hers being ready to run at the site of danger and his is to understand how the pack works. If that wasn't enough a killer is also out their and seems to be targeting Vanessa. They have their hands full and keeping Vanessa's allergies under control is just the start.
Dane is amazing to me. When he finds out their is Lycans, he takes it in stride really well and from the start does everything he can to protect Vanessa and become part of her world. He is also very sweet as he works to learn all her many allergies and help her. He is protective as well as he rushes into danger if he thinks it will save her. Vanessa is a funny character. She has problems not just a human with allergies but as a Lycan as well. It leads her into many problems. he is also a woman who is scared. She isn't used to facing her problems but used to running from them. She knows deep down Dane is her mate but tries to deny it and what she is many times.
This book is packed full of many things that make it amazing. You get lots of laughs with Vanessa's allergy issues. She has more medicine than anyone I have seen and more allergies. You also get the sexual tension between he two as they try to wait to do anything. They are different as night and day but they both need each other. You also have an element of danger as there is a killer running wild. The have to figure out who it is before the killer gets Vanessa. I liked all of this book and how the author tied everything together. It flows very nicely and was a joy to read. I look forward to more books in this series.
