Fated mates who can’t resist the chemistry between them
The danger and beauty of the Rocky Mountains
Grey Wolf assassin Malcolm Grey is set on revenge, and no one can stand in his way. With the pack facing their most challenging battle yet, his mission is simple: locate the perpetrators and destroy them. Malcolm will do anything to keep his pack safe, especially when sassy, southern belle Trixie Beauregard makes a proposal he can’t resist.
Trixie knows a few things about the dangerous cowboy sitting at her bar. One, he’s a wolf shifter. Two, his wolf pack is in jeopardy. And three, despite all his growling, this dark-eyed cowboy wolf wants her. But Trixie has problems of her own, and she knows better than to run with the wolf. The smart thing to do would be to stay away. Too bad she’s always had a taste for trouble…

My Rating: 4.5 stars
Cowboy Wolf Outlaw brings the Seven Range Shifters series to its conclusion. It’s always a bittersweet moment when I’ve loved a series and have to face saying goodbye to characters I’ve enjoyed and have become a bit vested in their happiness.
Malcolm is hurting in a way that only a wolf shifter who has lost their mate can feel. Bo was Malcolm’s world, and while Malcolm is bisexual and has a flirting conversation thing going on with Trixie, the waitress at the local bar, he isn’t actually acting on that in any real sense. He’s more drowning in grief than anything else – and the dangers that his pack still faces are at the forefront of his mind. All that is about to change when Trixie comes to him with new information – and a need for protection.
Trixie is a witch, and her unique talent as a witch comes in handy at the bar she works at. She’s been trapped here by a commitment given without full knowledge of all it entailed, and getting out might be a dream for one day. Until she learns plans that she knows Malcom’s pack needs to hear. Soon she’ll find herself fighting a stubborn wolf while simply trying to stay alive long enough to get him to see what they could be to each other.
I have enjoyed the Seven Range Shifters series so much. It’s hard to let it go. Cowboy Wolf Outlaw brought everything that I’ve enjoyed to this final story. One grumpy shifter, one caring human (witch but Malcolm uses human as almost an insult), pack danger, vile villains… and laughter, tears, fond memories as we get to see old friends, and of course the sizzling chemistry between Trixie and Malcom. This was a good wrap-up… and who knows, maybe we’ll get a spin-off one day and have a few cameos involving old friends. I had fun here, and although this one “could” be read as a stand-alone, I believe reading the series in order gives you access to so much more of the overall series – plus, every single one of these stories was amazing. Now begins the wait to see what this author brings us next. I can’t wait.
