Cade Warden is the pack alpha of the
Cascadia wolf pack. For years he has lived and breathed and
bled with his fellow pack mates. He has also yearned to
find that one wolf who completes him. A female who has been
designated as his alone. Despairing at ever finding her and
becoming more lonely each year, Cade puts his pack’s needs
above his own and just lives life day-to-day as he can.
Striving to stay ahead of Warren Pellini and his gang of
thugs, Cade attends a meeting of other pack leaders who have
hopes of outing Pellini and his evil minions. When SHE
walks in the meeting room, Cade does a double take because
unless he has a cold, his nose is telling him something that
he has been waiting for his entire life.
She is Grace Pellini, sister to Warren
and a doctor. Knowing that her brother is violating all
sorts of pack laws, Grace has slowly but surely gathered
enough evidence to put him away. The only choice she has is
to meet with his enemies and hope for protection. She has
no idea that in making one phone call her life will be
changed forever and just when she gets the hang of being the
female alpha to Cade’s male, a challenge is issued by her
brother that could tear her and Cade apart.
It goes without saying that Lauren Dane
is an auto-buy for me and as long as she is writing and
publishing books, I will be reading them. Standoff
is the continuing story of the Cascadia pack from previous
books, and this time the hero is Cade, the alpha of this
wonderful and powerful pack. Cade is anything but a
pushover but when it comes to Grace, he wears his heart of
his sleeve and his sensuous nature comes out full force. I
found Grace to be quite unique. She was a doctor, tiny, and
looked very fragile because of her small stature. Well, if
you could make her the size of her heart and give her the
willpower that she had, she would have been a giant.
Anything but fragile, she was able to wrap her wolf around
her finger and to me, that was the ultimate in strength.
Bold, arousing, and powerful,
Standoff is a book by Lauren Dane to read over and
over and I plan on doing just that!
