TJ Lynus is a legend in Granite Lake, both for his easygoing demeanor and his clumsiness. His carefree acceptance of his lot vanishes, though, when his position as best man brings him face to face with someone he didn t expect. His mate. His very human mate. Suddenly, one thing is crystal clear: if he intends to claim her, his usual laid-back attitude isn’t going to cut it.
After fulfilling her maid-of-honor duties, Pam Quinn has just enough time for a Yukon wilderness trip before returning south. The instant attraction between her and TJ tempts her to indulge in some Northern Delight, but when he drops the F-bomb (forever) she has second thoughts. In her world, true love is a fairytale that seldom, if ever, comes true.
Okay, so maybe staging a kidnapping wasn’t TJ’s best idea, but at least Pam has the good humor to agree to his deal. He’ll give her all the northern exposure she can stand and she won’t break his kneecaps.
Now to convince her that fairytales can remake her world and that forever is worth fighting for.

Oh T.J., how I have been waiting for this book. *sigh* I’ve loved this character since he was first introduced in Wolf Signs as the lovable, loyal to a fault, clumsy, ‘act first, think later’ little brother of Keil. After reading Wolf Tracks, I love him even more.
Pam showed up in Granite Lake for Maggie and Erik’s wedding. She’s jaded when it comes to the whole HEA thing so she really doesn’t understand how her best friend could fall head over heals in love with someone so fast. That sets up the perfect scenario for the instant love connection that happens when a wolf finds its mate. She’s as attracted to T.J. as he is to her, but she shrugs it off and decides that a vacation fling would be perfect. Of course, T.J. knows better and he does an amazing job of convincing Pam that there is a possibility of forever.
Although I wasn’t sure at first, Pam kind of grew on me. I think my hesitation came from the fact that I wanted T.J.’s HEA to be perfect. You can’t argue with fate though and in true T.J. form, he didn’t take any chances. I think what I love most about this character is that he just goes with whatever he’s feeling. He’s honest to a fault and his patience and determination to convince Pam that they were destined to be together was amazing.
There was no huge, dangerous conflict in this one. It was all about T.J. and Pam. That’s okay though. I liked that the only fight there that existed was in convincing Pam T.J. was her HEA. I also liked seeing the other characters again. They are such a great group and in each installment you can see how much they’ve grown and how much love and respect they have for each other. The next book in the Granite Lake Wolves series is Wolf Line and it features Jared.
