Arlin has been stuck in limbo for a while - not being part of a pack, but not outside of one either.  He’s chosen to follow his cousin Tala to Las Vegas, but she has found her mates and Arlin, while not necessarily shut out, isn’t part of the bond the three share.  When he is forced to act as protector to Ruth, a non-were that knows their secret, his lust goes into overdrive and he can’t seem to fight his territorial feelings toward her. However, Arlin refuses to recognize what this means – he doesn’t want the responsibility of a mate or of forming a pack.  These are things that he would have to do in order to claim a mate and keep her.  Will Ruth’s pull and the danger she faces be enough to get Arlin moving?

Ruth has been a vet for a long time, a result of her admiration for wolves and an attraction she has never been able to fully explain.  Then when she is placed in the middle of a turf war between rival packs Ruth must face certain truths about herself and the young Arlin.  But will she be brave enough to face what that entails?

As in the previous Alpha books, Treva Harte takes the reader on a roller coaster ride that will leave you breathless in Alpha 5: Heal.  Revisiting old characters from previous books was an unexpected pleasure as it reveals so much about them as it does about the new ones we encounter. This time Arlin is on center stage and he has to do some serious growing up to do in order to step up to the plate and prove his worth as a potential Alpha of a pack.  Ruth, however, is a mystery that slowly reveals itself to be Arlin’s salvation and path to manhood.  The chemistry is explosive and the encounters are unbelievably erotic, in true Treva Harte fashion!  The plot is fast paced and if you don’t pay close attention important facts will skate by you in a second. I really wish this story had been longer in order to fully explore Arlin and Ruth’s relationship and the pack they imagine starting.  Alpha 5: Heal is a sexy read that will entertain you as it turns you on and on and on!
