Alpha werewolf Gabriel Andrews is content with his life, even if it's a bit lonely. He wants what every wolf wants -- his mate. When a stunning woman darts into his garage, panting for breath and looking more than a little frightened, his wolf sits up and takes notice. She smells enticing and a hunger grows inside of Gabriel, and he knows he must have her. But loving Kiera will not be an easy task with a ravenous vampire hot on her trail. It seems his little shifter mate is something a little more, and it will take him and an entire pack to keep her safe.

Jessica Coulter Smith delivers another wonderfully written paranormal romance that had me totally captivated from start to finish, as well as making me want more by the time I read the last sentence of the novel.
Missy @ PNR Paranormal Romance
I loved book two of the Ashton Grove Werewolves even more than I did book one (and I thoroughly enjoyed Moonlight Protector). Ms. Coulter Smith just keeps getting better and better.
Arianne @ Night Owl Romance
The author has blended and woven a lovable romance with friendly characters who have intelligent minds. The story holds your attention until the very end.
Kiera had never felt anything like this before. Not even in her wildest dreams had she imagined it would feel this incredible. She felt the tip of him gently pressing into her, felt herself stretch to accommodate him. She hadn’t really felt any pain.
Once he was all the way inside of her, he stopped, allowing her time to adjust. She had barely made a sound as he had torn through her hymen.
“I don’t want to hurt you Kiera.”
“I’m fine Gabriel. I promise; I barely even felt it.”
He started moving again, but very slowly. He stroked her nipples with his thumbs and gently nipped her on the neck. Kiera gasped and thrust her hips back. She wanted all of him, wanted him to stop holding back.
“Damn it Gabriel! I said I was fine!”
With a low growl, he grabbed her around the waist and thrust into her hard and fast. Her gasp of pleasure was his undoing. He continued thrusting deep and hard, pushing both of them closer and closer to the edge. He felt her muscles clamp down on him as she climaxed and he soon followed, reveling in the feel of his seed spurting into her hot body. He was a little ashamed that he had allowed his animal side to win; he should have made it last longer, should have been gentler.
Afterwards, Gabriel pulled her into his arms. Being with Kiera had been different than anything he had experienced before. While he still didn’t understand why the vampire had chased her all the way to his shop, only to leave empty handed, he wasn’t going to question his good fortune. She was definitely the best thing that had ever happened to him.
He brushed a gentle kiss across her lips. “I promise that next time will be better. I should have taken things slower.”
She leaned into him. “It’s impossible to make it any better. That was absolutely perfect.”
Smiling, he asked, “Would you like some champagne?”
Kiera smiled at him. Before she could reply, the champagne bottle and both glasses appeared on the edge of the tub. She stared at them wide-eyed.
“Please tell me you did you that,” she whispered.
Gabriel was shaking his head and looking at her strangely. “No, it wasn’t me.”
“Do you sense any other presence in the room? Maybe you have a ghost?”
“No. I think… I think you made them appear over here,” he answered.
Her eyes got even wider, “Me?”
“There’s almost a glow to you,” he said, raking his eyes over her beautiful, naked body.
“All brides have that,” she lightly scoffed.
“Not that kind of glow. You’re literally glowing!”
