In fact, it is quite the opposite. Lexi’s cousins, Jacob and Troy Crimson, are about to be murdered. As they join the party in their club, VALERIES, they are attacked. If not for the quick reflexes of one sexy blonde, Jacob would have been killed by the blade of silver. Antoinette is stunned by her reaction to the two Alphas and finds herself in a heap of trouble, quadruple style. Not two, but four alpha males claim her for their mate, and she’s not sure how to handle them.

There’s an evil force set on destroying all alphas and ruling the world. He wants to obliterate the circle of elders and sets his sights on destroying Crimson, McFay and Sinclair. The battle has begun, and both Lexi and Antoinette must combine their powers, with the help of their alpha mates, to destroy the evil force before their packs are annihilated.

Mind control, psychic visions, sorcerers, wolves, mates and fey…oh, my! If that combination seems a bit daunting then you can just imagine how seemingly-human Antoinette felt when her entire world changes in a short 72 hours.

A night out clubbing with a friend quickly plummets into the stuff of nightmares when Antoinette comes face to face with twin Alpha wolf shifters, Jacob and Troy Crimson. They overwhelm her senses and have her running for cover but only after she takes a knife wound to protect them from would be assassins. Jacob and Troy, being Alphas who’ve discovered their destined mate, naturally track her down and then the “fun” really begins for Toni. Life wouldn’t be quite complete without throwing in a couple more fated mates, a big bad with an evil plan, Alpha in-fighting and my favorite, a trip to Texas to reunite with Lexi, Paul, Andre and Sabre from Were She Belongs.

Ms. Dwyer's stories are multilayered but the multiple plots all work towards an exciting and well developed arc in the book. The characters draw you into the story and keep you reading. The heroes are Alpha to max but still flawed so the reader comfortably connects with their individual personalities and is able to cheer them on as they set out to win their mate. Speaking of the mates, these women quite honestly NEED the stability of the pack as much as they NEED the unique men that make up their mates. Like Lexi, Antoinette’s past is not quite what she believed it to be and as the truth comes out so does the emotional rollercoaster. She wants them, she craves them but they scare the daylights out of her, that’s putting it mildly in particular for Antoinette. Patience is not the strong suit of these Alpha males but for the love of their mate they will learn!

Do you love a story that is just a little gritty, a whole lot of action, boat loads of testosterone and some seriously hot sheet action? I know I do and Were Love Found Her has all that and more. While there were a few editing goofs with mixing up the hero’s names (easy to do when there are four to contend with) I was able to mentally correct the mistakes and move on to enjoy the book. This novel reads fine as a stand alone but it will make more sense if you’ve read Were She Belongs. Pick up your copy ASAP, I think you’ll find it well worth the read!

I'm wondering if the title is a typo - shouldn't it be Where Love Found Her?

Linda, I assume it's a play on words because this is a shifter story (were -- pronounced "where" -- as in werewolf).

I did a double take the first time I saw it, too.
