My Rating: 4.5 stars
Most assumed that Cindy was Hendrik’s mate, truth couldn’t have been further away from that idea. Yes, they were friends, best friends even and Cindy took care of Hendrik’s home – her official title was housekeeper. But there was nothing more between them beyond the love of a good friend. Cindy, like all of the pack members, was destroyed at Hendrik’s death. She still lives in his home, still continues to care for the place almost as if he’d walk back in one moment, but she knows full well he won’t. Now the place she called home no longer feels safe. She is sensing unseen eyes watching, tracking, keeping tabs on her. It’s not her imagination so she turns to the one man that she quietly wishes looked at her with more than surface affection.
Sebastian has been attracted to Cindy from their very first meeting, but he’d also made the incorrect assumption that she was his friend’s mate. Now something is not right, Cindy is feeling watched or more deeply threatened by something unseen. He cannot stay away when she needs him, and suddenly realizing that while they are facing a dangerous situation – Cindy is his and this time he will not be letting her go.
Wolf Hunter is filled with the fast paced action that I expect in this series. There is danger once again to be faced, and old enemies are up to new tricks. Sebastian and Cindy make an intriguing couple. The chemistry is off the charts, and I could easily see these people together for the rest of their lives.
This series is one that I believe reading it in order will give you the best experience. Could you read this one without the background? Yes, there is enough explanation to fill in the holes, but I don’t think the impact would be as great. But that’s my opinion. I enjoyed my time in this world once again and I’d definitely recommend this story and the entire series to any Paranormal Romance reader.
