In book 2 of this series, Miki Kendrick takes centre stage. This woman is a complete nutcase (disregarding her phenomenally high IQ that is) with no safety valve at all between her brain and her mouth. A computer expert (narrowly avoiding prison at a young age for hacking into secure sites the Government wanted left strictly alone), inventor extraordinaire of some dangerous weaponry the Black Ops team may just kidnap her for and a crack shot (well her Mum was in the Marines) Miki is a vividly drawn character that positively leaps from the pages. If you're in trouble with no way out, this woman is someone you would want covering your back; a one woman A-Team who will do anything for her best friends Sara and Angelina.
Currently Miki is running scared, having put off her visit to Sara's new home as she is unable to deal with the wolf shape shifter who has made it perfectly clear he wants her. Conall may come across as a non threatening giant teddy bear of a man; however the clever Miki sees right through his facade. This wolf is a true Viking, a marauder out to steal her heart whilst she has absolutely no plans to hand it to him. Now if he wasn't so gorgeous, she wasn't so attracted to him, and her friends absolutely determined to set her up with him, she may have visited Sara sooner.
This book is even better than it's prequel "Pack Challenge" with a great plot and a fantastic pair of leading lovers. Miki is again the tough type of leading lady I enjoy whilst Conall is her perfect match as he attempts to woo a woman with a gigantic IQ the size of of her equally big mouth. Smart, savvy and sassy, Miki leads Conall a merry dance as they battle shape shifting hyenas before she admits she loves him, but as far as he is concerned it is well worth the time and effort he invests in their developing relationship. I am now left eagerly looking forward to reading Angelina's story; book 3 "Here Kitty, Kitty" will see her matched to a shape shifting tiger.

Im not a fan of samhain publishing, (not a fan of those large type books), i like thick books with small text to get the story going, but this series of hers as she also writes under g a aiken with the dragon series (which is bloody 5 star) this series is absolutley 5 star fantastic, its abosultey hillarious i was creasing up with laughter, the scenes were erotic the story lines fabulous and it was just what i needed after finishing my top author books for the year (feehan/ward/singh/kenyon/cooke/frank). 5 star lots of laughs great story about wolf/tiger shifters crazy ladies with blowing things up lots of guns bikers great scenes lots of alpha type males the dialect was fantastic very very very funny and just.. FANTASTIC.

I'll have to agree with all the other reviewers on the fact that this 2nd book in the series was much better than the first. It was funnier than the first one and had a more solid storyline that had me hooked from the first page. That said, I still think it would've benefitted from a more focussed look into history of the packs and the reason's why all the different packs were enemies, giving the story more depth and understanding. Despite that, I still enjoyed it. The unstable, lust filled interaction between Miki and Conall was funny, the sarcasm was outstanding, just wish I could be that quick witted with comebacks!
This book was 'laugh out loud' funny which is always a great ingredient for a good book for me. The sexy scenes were well thought out and very steamy. Could've been a bit more primal but you do get what you pay for so I'm not complaining one bit. Day off work today so off to start on book 3 in the series.
A definite winner.

Having discovered the G A Aiken Dragon books, it was only natural that I took a look at Shelly's other series afterwards, and boy am I glad I did! I'm sure some of the other passengers on my various travels on National Rail must be thinking I'm completely off my trolley for laughing out loud at some of the scenes in these books but I don't care! They're funny, very sexy (love that Conall!) and do have some engaging characters. Thanks Shelly!

Ok i re-read Pack Challenge so it meant i had to go back through the whole Magnus Pack and this one is great. It draws you in and keeps you hooked throughout the whole story.
Miki can see right through Conall's game plan of trying to be the nice guy you can rely on. She see's him for what he is, a Viking built for concurring. It just happens that he has set his sights on Miki and has no intention of ever letting her go. Once he finally gets her that is! As in true Miki style she won't just roll over and except that he may just want more than the hot and heavy sex that is almost guaranteed with just the way he looks at her.
Two down and one to go with the Magnus Pack trilogy. On to Angie's story now - who's ready for some purrfect action :)

Go Fetch is the second instalment of the Magnus Pack series and is the story of Connall Vga-Feilan and Miki Kendrick. Connall is Beta in the Magnus Pack and Miki is full human and best friend to Sara, female Alpha of the Magnus Pack.
They met in the first book and straight away Connall fell for the feisty human and this book continues his quest to conquer Miki and convince her that they should be together.
This has all the humour, explicit sex, foul language and violence that you would expect from a Ms. Laurenston novel. It is easy to get absorbed in the story as it is difficult to put down as each character introduced is easily likeable. Great read, looking forward to the next one.
