Review: Drawn to the Wolves by Shari Mikels

The pack's alpha has finally found his fated mate…and she's terrified of wolves.  
Wolf shifter Callan Mohan has a powerful connection to his pack. As alpha, he can sense if something is wrong—and when he feels panic coming from an unknown source, his instincts tell him she's someone to be protected at all costs. 
Rescuing a stranger from an unexpected confrontation with two wolf shifters is easy. Helping her move from fear to acceptance of the animals—and him—is a challenge. 
Kate Ballard's attraction to her mysterious rescuer is instant. That she falls for Callan so quickly isn't surprising—his strong, confident presence puts her at ease, and the strange connection she has to him makes her feel safe almost immediately. He's the man she didn't know she was waiting for. 
It's only a matter of time before Callan has to tell Kate the truth. And find out, once and for all, if her love for him is enough to overcome her fear.

Drawn To The Wolves was a quick and highly enjoyable read!  I loved how much story we got in this novella! I hope this is the introduction to a series because I really want to read more about this wolf pack! This is the first book by Shari Mikels that I have read and I like her easy writing style!  The story flowed very well and before you know it, it was over-boo!!

Callen is the alpha of his wolf shifter pack and in the middle of a meeting, he feels extreme fear coming from somewhere close to their compound.  Checking in with security of his pack, all is well, so he knows it’s coming from a stranger.  But this stranger feels decidedly different and he feels a strong pull towards her. This can only mean she must be his destined mate-and she’s in trouble!

Kate is on vacation having just quit her job as a sketch artist for the Atlanta Police Department.  After a stressful drive to her bed and breakfast in the wilderness of Georgia, she decides to take a walk and relax by sketching some of the surrounding wildlife.  While sketching some deer she encounters an eagle. Eager to sketch the it, she’s determined to keep up with magnificent bird. She becomes lost and is approached by a rather nasty man and his huge dogs. Apparently she’s wandered onto their property. After feeling the danger warnings going off in her head, she realizes those are wolves not dogs. Her anxiety ramps up from there having witnessed a tragic accident with her childhood friend involving wolves. As she is screaming in her head, but trying to outwardly stay calm, Callen comes to her rescue.

Callen and Kate share a connection. One that she recognizes immediately. She’s had dreams about his soothing voice! She always took it as just a dream, until she realizes Callen is the face that goes with that voice! How can that be?? She’s instantly drawn in, feeling like she’s known him her whole life.

As they spend time together, Callen is certain Kate is his mate, and Kate also feels their connection. How can he tell her his secret of being a wolf shifter when she is terrified of wolves??

I loved Callen! He is your typical strong alpha but he also has patience! His ability to keep the brakes on when he is surely faced with his mate was admirable!  He didn’t want to spook her and he took his time letting her get to know him. Kate quickly falls for this seemingly perfect man! She’s a strong girl and although she’s dealt with fear from the people she’s drawn their “monsters” for the police to catch, she’s never gotten over her own fear of wolves.  Callen draws on their undeniably strong chemistry to help her overcome those fears.

I really enjoyed the way this story unfolded and everything felt believable. It all clicked and it felt right. This definitely is a book I highly recommend reading! It’s setting and character building was solid. The added conflict with the “bad wolves” over business, and Kate’s fear of all wolves, adds some drama! It’s the added oomph that pushes this above other typical shifter books. Pick this up and I’m sure you’ll agree!
