Synopsis

A mixed-blood Native American wolf-shifter, abandoned by a teenage mother and ignored by an absentee father, Rio Waya has never fit in or felt worthy of love. But when he comes home to the Black Hills, he realizes he wants a mate of his own. 

Recovering from a cheating ex who started a new family behind her back, Sela López seeks escape to pull her life back together. As a documentary filmmaker and wildlife photographer, she rents a cabin in the Black Hills with plans to film the beleaguered wolf population. But she’s so busy looking through a camera lens she doesn’t see trouble coming. 

Sparks fly as mutual fears and vulnerabilities surface when Sela and Rio meet. She can’t figure out why the mysterious Mr. Waya is so anxious about having a documentary made of the Black Hills Wolves. But when his secret is exposed, all hell breaks loose. Can Rio win Sela’s trust and soothe her fears about allowing a hunky wolf-shifter into her heart?

You’re the one I’ve been waiting for. 5 PAWS UP
August 23rd, 2015
In the big picture, she and the wolves were a natural match. (Oh more than you know Sela. More than you know!) WO-O-OF! Now that was one intensely captivating unique story! I loved the curiosity & almost immediate pull between Sela and Rio! And how can you not love the opening piece where all Sela wants is some food, while everyone seems to just want her to leave. I found the whole thing so funny and odd at first, but the second time reading the book made that part all the more hilarious! Yes, you did read that right - I finished the book then flipped right back to the beginning and read it again! I PAWSITIVELY LOVED IT!! I was completely enthralled with the story! I love all things Wolf! Like their rules & laws, the history behind each character - their human & Wolf side, as well as the history of the Pack & town. I loved the humor and playfulness of Blackie. This is my first Black Hills Wolves story as well as my first Katalina book and WOW! What an enchanting story! I think that the best way I could pay tribute to such a momentous occasion of punching my double v-card would be to follow it up with my second experience for both – that’s right! Katalina’s second book in the Black Hills Wolves #25 – Uncaged comes out August 21, 2015 and I can’t wait to read it! Her writing style is awesome, captivating the reader from the beginning and holding it throughout the story. I loved the playfulness, the romance, friendship, the way the town and its people all band together to form their own family, it is all just so FANGERRIFIC! Of course my favorite part is all things Wolf and Mate and everything that happens AFTER the Mating! After all, that is why I read Shifter books in the first place – because of the magic behind the human-animal and for the One True Mate factor! Anything else I want to add here will give too much away, but I think you will agree that those are two of the main characteristics that should be in all GRRREAT Shifter stories! Reading a multi-book series that is written by numerous authors sounded intriguing, but I wasn’t sure how it would work. Since I just discovered it, I was worried I would have a LOT of reading to do to catch up since there are a whopping 25 books in the series already!! But the best I could figure out was that each book was a stand-alone with each author maybe having past characters of theirs appear in their newer books, but each story has an ending and doesn’t carry onto the next book. Now that I have had my first taste of the Black Hills Wolves series I cannot wait to read them all!

MUST READ-CAPTIVATING & ROMANTIC!!
August 16th, 2015
Portrait Of A Lone Wolf- Black Hills Wolves-A captivating romantic story that touches your heart. Drop dead gorgeous wolf shifter Rio finds himself in a profoundly precarious situation when he tries to outwit the exceptionally clever, sultry, independent filmmaker Sela. The cast of characters are convincing, impressive and engaging, banter outstanding, heart-wrenching moments, picturesque and potent scene descriptions, plot spectacular, secrets unfold, an astounding surprise, pent up desires escalate, life threatening moments, jaw-dropping heart-pounding romance, and a conclusion that soothes the soul. Spectacular exhilarating well written read by a truly gifted author. The fusion of authenticity and fantasy is potent and impressive. Emotions sky-rocketed in this story; each character had an Achilles heel, however, their unfading devotion and earned trust beamed like the brightest star in the sky. I so relish how the author pulls feelings from the reader, leaving you with a most gratifying read. If you enjoy shifter romance, this is a fabulous book for your library. In the world of shifters the possibilities are illimitable and fascinating. {I received an arc for a thoroughly truthful review}. Without reservations I highly recommend this book.

Must read for all that love paranomal romances
February 27th, 2015
I got to read this book for free to review for the author. Thank you for the opportunity to ARC for you Ms. Leon First off I have to admit that this is the first book I've read from this author and I can honestly say it wont be the last book. In fact I've already bought 5 other books from this author today off Amazon. I highly recommend that if you haven't given this author a try that you do so now. This is a good book to start with!!! Ms. Leon has a wonderfully smooth way of writing that just snaps you up and holds on tight. You literally feel what each character is going through. Now about the book alone - I loved Rio best. I also love that he is Native American. He sounds so hot looking and he was so lonely and vulnerable. He had always felt that way and was at the stage in his life now that he had pretty much given up on the idea that he would have anyone to share his life with. But he wasn't bitter about it. He was strong and accepted that as something he was going to have to live with. Then he meets Sela who just rocks his world and beliefs. Suddenly he had a chance at happiness and love. It's so sweet how he keeps trying to get close to her but goes the wrong way about it. My favorite part of the book is when he's shifted into a wolf and is hamming it up for her. It's so funny when he gets caught shifting. Sela is a great character also. She's strong but also vulnerable. She's been hurt deeply and isn't looking for love or sure she can trust again. Then Rio comes along. She can feel that he's as lost and lonely as she is and can't help but let him in. It also doesn't hurt that he's hot and she can't help but be attracted to him. I liked how she was scared but didn't panic or start screaming when she finds out what he is. I find it so cute that they have the same last name only in different languages. Waya means wolf and Lopez means wolf. It's like the fates had lined them up just for each other. Super cute. I also want to say that the cover of the book is great. The guy is hot. I loved the book. The only thing I wish was different about the book would have to be that it was longer. I would've liked to know more about them. This is a really good book. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good paranormal romance to read. If you ever need any more reviewed please feel free to send them my way. I'm always glad to help. Thanks again for the opportunity to ARC for you.
