Growl is a collection of three paranormal romance stories by Eve Langlais, Kate Douglas, and A.C. Arthur. The tales are heated, fast-paced, and entertaining reads. “Legal Wolf’s Mate” by Eve Langlais is the first story, and in her usual style she humanizes the less-than-humane and renders tense situations comical. Gavin is a legal wolf shifter who finds himself distracted by tantalizing secretary Megan, accused of murdering her boss. When he finds that she might not be that innocent after all, they both have to decide how far they are willing to go for this attraction.
The second story in Growl is “Feral Passions” by Kate Douglas. This tale focuses around a group of long-lived shifter men searching for their mates. With this goal at heart, the men established a rustic retreat that caters to small parties of eligible females. Cherry is duped into going on the retreat by her sister at the last minute, but she definitely gets more than she ever excpected when she starts interacting with the men working at Feral Passions. This story is unique, interesting, and features steamy ménage.
The final story in the book is “Alpha’s Woman,” and it is the first A.C. Arthur story that I have read. I absolutely loved it! While the relation to Greek mythology was not new, the author’s take on the overall story was, and I enjoyed her characters and the way she set the packs up. The last story in Growl was super sexually charged, and it was a delight to burn through into the wee hours of the morning.
