Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Roxanne has suffered a concussion after a severe bump to the head, but that's okay - she's having the best hallucination ever. It involves being rescued by an incredibly handsome man who can turn into a wolf and lusts after her like no man ever has before. No, really - in her home town, plain, chubby Roxanne was lusted after by no-one. Her handsome shifter hallucination is so hot, she finds herself wishing she'd never recover.
Steele Battle, wolf shifter, Sheriff of Timber Valley, has met the love of his life - and he must leave her behind, with her memory erased, because she's human and can never know about the existence of his people. A year later, he's still mourning the loss of the woman who captured his heart - when she strolls in to the bar in his remote, out of the way town, which is not on any human map. How did she find him, and what does she want? To keep her safe, Steel has no choice but to hold her captive until the town's shaman returns to erase her memory for good - but will Steele be able to part with the love of his life a second time?
Hard As Steele is book 3 in the Timber Valley Pack series by Georgette St. Clair.
Best one so far!
Steele Battle is the town sheriff and is respected and loved by all. He has been quiet and solemn around the pack lately and has no interest in hooking up with anyone and we finally get to find out why in this book. Roxanne is a human who isn’t supposed to know anything about the shifter society but she’s having dreams or are they memories?
This series is so much fun. The excitement and anticipation is so good that you can’t stop reading. The characters are all fantastic. I love the humour in the dialogue. It’s hilarious. I love the style of St. Clair’s writing. She grabs your attention right off the bat and then holds it right to the very end. It’s not an overly huge book but I read it in one sitting. I just couldn’t help myself.
It’s not completely perfect though. Here’s what I didn’t care for. I would like to strangle the Wardens! I started to take a liken to one of them and then he turned out to be a dick because they are such sticklers for rules. Rules are meant to be at the very minimum bent. The harshness for breaking a rule is archaic. There are bad people and shifters alike, but the punishment that they wanted to enforce on Steele was uncalled for. Save that kind of punishment for terrible acts rather than trying to save someone’s (or several) life. I’m very unhappy that View Spoiler »Steele was banished from his pack and never is to have contact with his family and friends ever ever ever again or he faces death. WTF? He along with his human saved the lives of several shifters that had been going missing. The wardens certainly backed him up long enough to rescue people and then still wanted to kill him because he left pack territory with a human who had knowledge of their existence. First of all… he didn’t leave WITH her, she was taken and he went after her. That annoyed me. I mean, he accepted his punishment and is fine with it because he likes where he’s ending up but still… in my opinion he really didn’t do anything wrong. Maybe, it’s all in St. Clair’s plans to fix this in future books??? I hope so. « Hide Spoiler
Either way though, this series is becoming very good to me. I’m really enjoying it!
