Wolf's Desire 
Caedmon Wolves, #4
Aiden and Keira

When Keira becomes a widow, she realizes that the life she once had wasn’t normal after all. After her husband is brutally murdered, she is more than just alone but vulnerable to threats and tangled in a web of greed. Her decisions lead her into a corner, and safety is jeopardized.

 Aiden, Caedmon Council member, has never failed when it comes to fulfilling the terms of his employment contract. When he is hired to protect
an heiress, he doesn’t plan on her being the only woman to bring both challenge and purpose in his life. Without hesitation, he vows to keep the grieving Keira safe—even from himself.

Keira trusts Aiden unconditionally and finds joy whenever they are together, but can love transcend a tragedy? Aiden’s urge to protect her is just as great as his desire to claim her. Once the passion is unleashed and fueled by the need to have all of her, the wolf will accept nothing less than his mate.

Synopsis from Goodreads


Tamara would risk her life to gain freedom. She's finally built up the courage to escape from a world of abuse by the hands of man who promised her the world. One night she makes a break for it, but her plans backfire. She begins to believe that she was never meant to be happy. When all hope of freedom fades, she stumbles across a wolf that brings her to safety. She learns to trust the wolf, but has yet to trust the man.

Devin, potential future leader of the Caedmon Pack, returns to the foothills of his Virginia home after five long years as a lone wolf. Rivals within the circle challenge him and threaten to strip him of his true birthright. Being bound to lead the pack was not something Devin had planned for his life, but letting his people fall prey to turmoil under the rule of his cousin Darius is out of the question. The night of Devin’s rise to Alpha leader is approaching. Despite opposition, he’s gained an impressive following. That is until he brings a human among the pack.

Tamara can’t deny the attraction she feels toward Devin. The Alpha leader-to-be simply cannot resist Tamara’s lure. When they are together, their tribulations take the backburner. Their desire for one another grows as they consummate their passion in wolf’s haven. Will Devin forfeit the most coveted position within the Caedmon Pack to bond with his chosen mate? Can Tamara trust Devin with her mind, heart, body, and soul or will the memories of her abuse dissuade her from being bound to the wolf?


*********************************************


      Wolf's Haven is a story that follows a woman named Tamara. Tamara is in a lot of trouble. Her fiance, Brad, is not a good man. He abuses her and takes her out on his multiple burglary excursions. She wants out and she wants out now. She wants to leave and start a new life with a new identity. But first, she needs to make sure her plan works. While on another heist, Tamara makes her escape. But while the cops close in, she is rescued by an unlikely hero; a wolf. The wolf saves her life. When she wakes up, she is in a strange cabin with an even stranger man named Devin. She doesn't trust him, but has nowhere else to go. But they soon become attracted to each other and she finds out his secret. His secret will be a fight for both of them and they don't know if they will survive their new roles.

      I love my shapeshifter romances and this was just the right kind of read I loved. It was a fast read and it was addictive. I loved the build-up of the story and the characters in this book. Kirk has done such a great job. This is my first read from her and it definitely won't be my last. I am in love with this series.

      I really liked Tamara. You instantly for sorry for her and her situation. She is frightened and scared for her life because her fiance Brad is a monster. She was tricked into a relationship with him. She has every right to be on the run. But it is great that she ran into Devin. Devin is a lone wolf for the most part. His pack, well his father who was the Alpha, has banished him. He doesn't want the position, but the replacement is not a great option either. The one that wants to lead will do anything to get to the top. He has to be there to make sure he doesn't get to the top even if he won't take the position. But he has to look after Tamara first. He knows she is running from something or someone. He wants to help her, but he doesn't really know why. He is protective of her immediately. I love Devin and I loved how much backstory we get with Devin and Tamara. They both have pasts that they are running from and demons that continue to haunt them.

      The story was well paced and well put together. I did have a few issues though. I couldn't wait until Devin and Tamara reached Caedmon territory. But I would have liked if we got more of that and the pack especially the villain in the story, Darius. Darius is Devin's cousin and desperately wants to lead the pack, but he is more of a dictator and will hold the pack back. But the fight between them was a bit rushed and short for me. I wanted more darnit! The same goes for Tamara and her ex-fiance Brad. I like my revenge stories and I would have liked to have seen Brad get punished at least a little bit for what he did to Tamara. But this is a short story, so that happens. I loved where the story went and the things that were uncovered about Devin's family. I can't say what, but it an interesting surprise. Again, I wanted a little more here, but I am still satisfied.

      This is such a good story, The scenes between Devin and Tamara were very hot and steamy. You will definitely need a cold shower after reading this. I only wish it were longer. But the read is fast and the characters are very likeable. You relate to them very quickly. I love them and their stories. I can't wait to start book 2, We get to follow Tamara's friend who tried to help her escape in this book and Devin's best friend Nick. Definitely recommended for PNR fans for sure.
