Taking risks, especially risks of the handsome male variety, is currently out of the question for Sydney Reid. She will make no exceptions for tall, gorgeous Derrick Porter. Never date a player--it’s rule number one in Sydney’s book, and the charming lawyer constantly devouring her with his eyes is every inch the reason. Despite her best efforts to keep Derrick in the friend zone, sparks fly between the two of them, and Sydney isn’t entirely sure she wants to throw water on the flames.

Can Derrick convince the shy, sexy Sydney to give him a chance, something more than her elusive “maybe”? More importantly, should he? Derrick has a few secrets, the least shocking secret being that he can transform at will into a powerful wolf. He's still trying to forgive himself for being at the wheel during the accident that killed his son. Losing Sydney when she learns the truth might break him, but he's pretty sure not having her would be just as bad.

And with an obsessed stalker on their tails, more than their hearts are at issue.

Wolf's Challenge (Stranger Creatures Book 1)She saw him as a player, those mesmerizing eyes that seemed to look right through her, the charm that oozed from his very pores and that mystique he seemed to hold like a veil around his heart. Yep, Derrick Porter was the complete package-of everything Sydney Reid wanted nothing to do with. While her brain is chanting that mantra, her heart seems to have other ideas, because there was something special about Derrick and she is oh so very right.

Derrick noticed Sydney from the start, with his penetrating gaze, his cool lawyer demeanor, he is preparing his best case for dating him, but is that wise? She has no idea how he goes all furry and growly at will and his inner wolf is getting pretty angry with Derrick dancing around taking his mate. Being a wolf shifter isn’t Derrick’s deepest secret though, and he knows he isn’t ready to share his worst nightmare with Sydney. How can eh expect her to trust and believe in him as a lover and not just as a friend?

The sparks fly physically, but when hearts are involved, Sydney is not prepared to get burned by this alpha male, unless it happens while burning up the sheets with passion. How will she react to his inner wolf when it comes out to play? Not enough to deal with? There is a stalker on their “tails” and Sydney is far too human to survive an attack. Who is out to destroy them and why?

WOLF’S CHALLENGE by Christina Lynn Lambert is a fresh look at love, acceptance and self-forgiveness! There is no crazy over-reaction to Derrick’s furry side from Sydney which is VERY impressive! Clearly she did feel something, could it be because she already knows about at least one other shifter? Ms. Lambert has a great read here for paranormal readers who want the spice of romance that goes from simmering to 212 degrees and steams up the air in a very sexy way. Sydney’s character is strong, but she has been burned before and she isn’t about to bare her soul until she knows Derrick has no more secrets. Derrick is hot, but for an alpha attorney and an alpha wolf, he sure has been brought to all four knees in the name of true love!

No over angst-filled pages, no over-the-top emotional whining, this is a tale of two souls, each wanting to let go, but just a little afraid of how vulnerable it will make them.

I received this copy from Christina Lynn Lambert in exchange for my honest review.
