Product Description

An untriggered werewolf. A runaway Omega. It’s not easy fighting destiny.

Granite Lake Wolves, Book 2

Tad Maxwell’s workaholism serves to keep his bush-pilot company in the air, and his inner werewolf in check. In the two years since he discovered his heritage, he’s resisted the longing to test the power of his wolf side. It would mean compromising his human principles.

Then Missy Leason re-enters his life. Ten years ago, their teenage attraction never went beyond hand-holding. Now their chemistry is off the charts, pushing him closer to the step he’s not sure it’s safe to take, especially with a human.

But Missy is more like Tad than he realizes. She’s wolf too, and a wolf pack is a dangerous place to have secrets. Missy’s Alpha has sniffed out her carefully hidden Omega powers. Her first response: run from the corrupt Alpha’s plan to make her his mate. Step two: get to Tad, and hope like hell his untapped powers are strong enough to negate her own.

Every touch with Missy is hot, hot, hot, but even finding out she’s pure wolf doesn’t solve Tad’s dilemma. Is she using him, or are they truly destined mates? Only one thing is certain. He will defend her to his last breath—on his terms. Even if it means losing his life.

Warning: Contains nasty Alphas, secret Omegas and werewolves acting raunchy on the dance floor. Sarcasm, wilderness cabins and hot nookie back by popular demand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Granite Lake Wolves 2 7 Aug 2010
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Tad is a werewolf but his wolf genes have never been triggered because he hasn't had sex with another werewolf. Although he has had offers from other female wolves he hasn't found anyone who he wants to be with and is unsure if he wants to trigger the wolf genes.

Missy is an Omega wolf which means that she has the ability to control the emotions of other wolves in her pack. She is terrified of her Alpha and remembering Tad from when they were teenagers she turns to him for help.

We first met Tad, who is Robyn's brother, in Wolf Signs and I was hoping that we'd get to read his story so I was really looking forward to reading Wolf Flight. This story is set in the same time line as Wolf Signs so it begins with Tad worrying about Robyn as she goes off to the isolated mountain retreat without him. I liked the fact that we got to see Tad's side of the story but I would recommend reading the books in order so that you don't find out any spoilers for Wolf Signs.

The opening scenes with Missy introduce us to her Alpha Doug and let me just say Vivian did a brilliant job creating a completely detestable bad guy - I hated him immediately! It was easy to see why Missy was so terrified and desperate to escape from him. Missy and Tad had dated as teenagers but when they meet again the chemistry between them is so hot it's combustible. There was more action in Wolf Flight than the first book but that didn't take away from the romance between Missy and Tad - it just added an extra layer to the story. I'm really enjoying this series and can't wait to read the next book. I'd happily recommend this series to any paranormal romance and shifter fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Hearts from TRS! 22 Jan 2010
By Tina Pavlik - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this paranormal romance. In fact, I enjoyed this one a little better than the first in the series. The characters were so appealing and the plot and pace worked well in this quick read. Missy and Tad are great and they complement each other so well. I loved that there was a bit more to their relationship than just the hormonal mating. It was also wonderful to catch up with some of the characters from the first story. I can't wait to read the next Granite Lakes Wolves offering as I'm already in love with both Shaun and TJ. - Theresa Joseph

I don't write plot summaries or include spoilers.

I really enjoyed reading this book 2 of Ms. Arend's 'Granite Lake Wolves' series, which begins with Wolf Signs: Granite Lake Wolves, Book 1. Similar to book 1 in that this is a FAST read. Given that, it is pretty satisfying. Good book to read in an afternoon if you just want a little relaxing fun. It would almost be as comforting as a good cup of tea... or is it the other way around?

Characters are sweet- more sweet than sexy in this case. Both Missy and Tad come across as people you'd like to have living next door. Despite the fact that I wasn't drooling over them or caught up in their passion, their romance was well done. There was some background between the two which helped provide some depth and their sexual tension was fun to watch unfold. I chuckled in places and sighed in contentment in others.

This series does seem a little light on the paranormal side- you don't really get to spend too much time on the shifting or their nature as wolves, but pack politics come into play- and certainly wolf instincts. This book had a bit more magic in it given that the Omega wolf was a key part of the plot.

All in all, it's a light, uncomplicated paranormal romance series. Something to read for fun when you have time. It is light and romantic enough to be soothing. I will save the next one for a day when I need a little escape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolf Flights 13 Nov 2009
By Booklover1335 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
At the beginning it seemed like this story would be about Missy and her flight for freedom, but really I think this story was more about Tad and his acceptance and initiation into pack life and politics.

Tad is unlike most other heroes that I can remember reading in recent history, and that is because he is an Omega. An Omega is someone in the pack that experiences others feelings and intents, almost like intuition, and is a natural peacekeeper who selflessly puts others needs before his own. An antithesis to an Alpha hero.

Tad doesn't realize he is an Omega, just recently found out he is a wolf, and is conflicted about being "triggered" so that he can take his wolf form. His reasons are complicated, and somewhat justified, even when he is reunited with his high school love....Missy, whom he has been secretly yearning for. I wanted Tad to claim Missy as a true Alpha would...no matter the consequences, and even though he yearns to do exactly that...he won't let himself, it goes against everything that he is as a character. I wanted Tad to take what he wanted, because it's what Missy wants too. For me he was too conflicted, not assertive enough...and basically just not an Alpha. And that is where I think the problem lies for me. It's not that his character was not written well, because it was. The author stayed true to what being an Omega male should be...unfortunately I've come to realize that I prefer Alpha's...and even Beta's, but not so much an Omega for a hero.

There are things that I loved about Wolf Flights, things that I thought were distracting, and things I wish would have been explored in more depth. I wish less time would have been spent on Missy's research group, because I thought it was just a distraction to the story, didn't really add to it, and the author could have spent the time on other aspects of the story I wanted more of. Missy had enough reason to leave her pack because of her evil brother-in-law. The research group was her excuse to leave, but I wish a more simple escape to Tad would have been written instead.

I wanted more of the sexy scenes like the one where Tad and Missy went dancing. It was a dance of seduction, and I wanted more like it. I also wanted to explore more of Tad's assimilation to the Wolf Pack and the hostility between "blue-bloods" and "half-breeds". This was mentioned briefly and the possibilities intrigued me. I hope this is something that is explored in the future and that this was just an introduction to a much deeper issue.

But the thing I missed the most was that the reader did not get to experience Tad's "change" into a wolf. I felt that the whole story was leading up to him being "triggered", finding his mate, and being able to experience what it is to be a Wolf. And while it wasn't essential to the love story, for me it felt incomplete without it.

Overall I enjoyed Wolf Flights, and would still recommend it despite what seems to be mostly negative comments. It is sexy, sometimes tortured, but also has moments of fun banter that will make you smile and maybe even make you laugh. I liked their love story. I liked that Missy turned to Tad, and I thought their Omega abilities were an interesting challenge. While I liked Tad as a character, he's just not my cuppa as a hero which is where most of my problems lie. I also wanted more of their story. Because what I did like, I REALLY LIKED. I will definitely be looking for the next one in this series, Wolf Games, due out early spring of next year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 24 Feb 2010
By SReMarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a word, this novella is just...awful. The story line had promise, based on the summary I was excited, but failed to deliver majorly. The characters are largely unrealistic and problems (that shouldn't have really been problems) are solved way too easy quick fixes if you know what I mean. Plus, this is a major for me, the whole "wolf world" Arend created was pretty far out there. I love shifter stories with a passion and I dig variances and different takes on the shifter world but Arend's idea that a mated male is okay with his mated female having sex with another man (to trigger his wolf) is just outrageous. It's at the level of saying vampire are really just misunderstood tooth fairies. Mess with the lore all you like but leave the mating idea alone, it's what usually draws readers in the first place. Do not bother with this book, it is a huge waste of money but also time.

Wolf Flight
Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

I adore this story! I was intrigued by Tad's character in the first book in the series. He was our heroine's brother and he actually knew that he was a wolf, just hadn't been triggered and couldn't shift yet. When he has to cancel on his sister for their annual trip because of work, he gets a surprise. His high school crush is actually part of the company that hires him. And Missy is actually a wolf and wanting to sort of mate with him.

Her plans have to change when she realizes that they are really mates. She's actually on the run in a way from the Alpha of her pack who wants to have her because she is an Omega wolf.

Now not only does she have a real mate that she doesn't want to loose but he's not able to shift yet and will have to deal with big bad Alpha coming for them.

This was short but very sweet, I loved Tad. It was also nice that this story happens almost at the same time as book one so we see his side of the story when he finds out his sister is mated and now knows about being a wolf. Tad could've been triggered a long time ago but he was waiting for the right girl. The way his personality is I wasn't surprised to find out that he was also an Omega wolf.

Can't wait for the next book. Will it be TJ soon???
