Tempering Steel (Coyote Bluff Series Book 2)

After months of aching to be with grumpy Sheriff Connor Manning, Margarete Barrie finally gets her chance when a coyote shifter takes refuge in her home. She burns with need every time they’re close, but even she can only take rejection so many times before giving up.

Connor’s resolve to stay away from Margie weakens when she takes in his packmate. Fighting his inner animal and jealousy makes him question his decision to leave women and love alone.

They’re thrown together to catch a trapper or hunter threatening the pack. But once things start to heat up even the possibility of danger doesn’t cool the tension between them.

A Review(by Beckey)
Let me start by saying that this may be a part of series but it can be read like a standalone (which is what I did). I prefer books in series that can be read as standalones with no true standout “cliff hangers” that are…
This was a great read that was captivating and enjoyable paranormal story about the sheriff (who is a shifter Coyote) and the vet (a human). Which after two years of battling/fighting the attraction between them and  sheriff being shot at with a tranquilize gun by the vet made one think “Ok enough of the games time go after what should have been done…”
Cute, sweet well described story… I really enjoyed 4.5 stars.
