For wolf shifter Dmitri Sernov, life bites. His late-night hunts leave him winded, the twelfth rewrite of his novel is crap, and his last good lay was five drafts ago. He’s staring down forty with a creative well as empty as his bed. The last thing he needs is a beautiful, intimidating, obnoxious pup bent on exposing Dmitri’s underbelly… and everything else that’s gone soft.

Thierry Marrou has burned every bridge from Montréal to Juneau. Once a prospect for Canada’s Olympic hockey team, he’s just been kicked off a piddling local squad in Nowhere, Alaska. But one whiff of the silver wolf on the opposing bench was enough to confirm that the erotic dreams drawing Thierry across a continent have a very real—and very cranky—source.

SURRENDER THE CHASE is the 2nd book (43,000 words) of GRIZZLY RIM, a steamy paranormal romance series featuring M/M heroes of all stripes:





The men of Grizzly Rim are a lot of things, but always human isn’t one of them. These shifters landed in this remote Alaska village for different reasons, but the same thing keeps them there: a massive wilderness where they can soar, lope, paddle, and hide.

But nature doesn’t play fair. A horny shifter can change form without warning, and nothing amps the libido like the extremes of the northern sun. Throw in feverish auroras, strange tides, and unexpected visitors, and this year’s brew is more potent than ever.

For the shifters of Grizzly Rim, one thing is becoming achingly clear: no matter where you hole up, eventually your secrets will catch your scent.

    wolf shifters playing hockey? yes please!

    In this second story of the Grizzly Rim series (easily read as a standalone), two wolf shifters connect - first with altercations on the ice but soon enough with their hearts and souls. Dmitri is a writer looking for inspiration, his existence in northern Alaska consisting of visits with friends at the local bar, amateur hockey with the local team and the occasional one night stand to warm his increasingly lonely bed. When younger wolf Thierry gets in his face at a local game and then makes it clear he's not going to go away so easily, Dmitri is hard pressed to understand what Thierry's interest in him could possibly be, no matter that Thierry insists his dreams have led him to Alaska and Dmitri in particular. They are a mismatched pair - older cynical Dmitri and younger confused Thierry. But one thing's for certain - the attraction between them is not going to go away and might just lead them to a happy ever after. I really enjoyed this story. I loved the first one in the series (Launch The Hunt, which featured an eagle shifter, a first for me). This one has the more standard paranormal wolf shifter main characters but with a bit of a sports romance thrown into the mix, as Thierry and Dmitri meet on the ice and Thierry is a well known figure in the hockey world. There are several hockey scenes that are easy to visualize. At the same time, with both being wolf shifters, parts of the story are shown in wolf form and parts in human form with excellent worldbuilding and a northern setting that is picturesque and isolated, perfect for the animal shifters who make their home there. Dmitri's character comes across well as a single guy in his forties, good looking (though not as slim as he used to be), quiet though friendly but frustrated with his writer's block. The last thing he needs is some young pup getting in his face. Thierry definitely has the energy and attitude of a late twenty something man, confused by his need to go west and find the man who keeps showing up in his dreams. Now that he's found him, he's not quite sure what to do about it, except that the chemistry between them is too good to dismiss. As a result, they share some steamy scenes together, but are quick to both realize that there is something deeper developing between them. Thierry's Quebecois nature comes through clearly and I loved the french bits thrown in here and there which made his character feel quite authentic. There are several secondary characters in the story and some surprising family revelations that Thierry must deal with, while he sorts out whether staying with Dmitri is what he wants to do. I really liked the banter between Dmitri and his friends and the bar scenes with them give some hints about upcoming stories for other characters (all of which I'm looking forward to). It was a fast paced and enjoyable read. 4 stars.
