Big Bad Wolf by Christine Warren

Missy Roper’s fantasies have revolved around Graham Winters since the moment they met. But the imposing leader of the Silverback werewolf clan always seemed oblivious to Missy’s existence. At least he was, until Missy collides with him at a party and then abruptly runs away—arousing Graham’s interest…and wild desires.

Lupine law decrees that every Alpha must have a mate, and all Graham’s instincts tell him that the sensual, beguiling Missy is his. Trouble is, Missy is human—every delectable inch of her. Convincing his clan that she’s his destined mate, and keeping her safe from his enemies, will be the biggest challenge Graham has ever faced. And now that he is determined to have her—as his lover and as his mate—Missy’s world is changing in ways she never imagined…

BEWARE BIG BAD WOLF - THIS BOOK IS A REPRINT! It isn't anything I can really blame on anyone but myself, but I bought this book and was very disappointed. Damn you reprints of E-books! I have no problem with the story itself, but it's pretty much identical to the original, except for one added scene and one place where the dialogue is changed during a sex scene to allude to the new title. Ugh. I don't even feel like it was worth my money to complete my print collection to get this. Either way, it's a good story, one of my favorites that I go back to time and again with characters that are memorable. Missy's and Graham's love story is that great combination of easy and hard, with their feelings for each other a part of the story and not a side note or assumed.

Overall Feeling - Thumbs up for the story, THUMBS DOWN for being a reprint and for St. Martin's Paperbacks because they are reprinting the Fantasy Fix series in a very awkward order for any new comers.

Series - 1) Wolf at the Door 2) She's No Faerie Princess 3) The Demon You Know 4) Howl at the Moon 5) Walk on the Wild Side 6) One Bite With a Stranger 7) You're So Vein 8) Big Bad Wolf
