Review: Wolf Signs by Vivian Arend

Wolf Signs (Granite Lake Wolves #1) by Vivian Arend
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Robyn Maxwell doesn't care that her brother has to cancel out on their backcountry ski trip. She can do it alone. The fact she's deaf doesn't make her survival skills any weaker. The chance to get away from it all and relax in the Yukon wilderness is just what she's been craving.

Meeting wilderness guide Keil at the cabin starts cravings of another kind. Keil's one hot hunk of ripped, tasty male. Now she has to deal with raging hormones as well as strange questions about wolves and mates and challenges to the death.

Keil was trying for a nice reflective retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn't planning on meeting the woman destined to be his mate, or finding out she's not aware she has the genes of a wolf.

Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week--and his bed--is suddenly full. Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind....

Warning: Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "talking with your hands". Includes dangerous use of sarcasm and hot nookie in a remote wilderness sauna.
My Thoughts: If you haven't read any Vivian Arend books, this book (and series!) is a fantastic place to start. You get Wolfies! And a spunky heroine who doesn't let her deafness slow her down! And a guy who has all the power of an Alpha and isn't afraid to challenge for the right to lead his pack! *flaily hands*

I really do like Robyn and that she's not afraid to be feisty and show the boys that she won't be pushed around. She handles everything that's thrown at her with grace (and sometimes a bit of temper). Considering that the big things she has to deal with is finding out she's a wolf and that one of the hot guys she's sharing the cabin with is her mate... well, she has a lot to take in.

Keil and TJ were pretty hilariously awesome together. TJ is a crack up. Just... ha! I can't wait until his story. Keil is big and bad and he has the power to lead their pack. Finding Robyn is the icing on the cake. Oh, plus there's that hot sex thing. Rawr!

This is a great start to a fun series. Robyn and Keil work nicely together and I expect to see more of them as the series progresses.

  1. HA. "If you haven't read any Vivian Arend books, this book (and series!) is a fantastic place to start." Did you write this for me? Because I haven't read any Vivian Arend yet! She is on my wishlist, though. Just... not this series.

    1. I wrote this for EVERYONE who never read a Vivian Arend book. (But mostly for you.)

    2. Right now, I'm imagining that all your reviews are written for me.

      What? Clearly, everything in this world is about me. *skips around* *twirls* *curtsies*
