N. J. Walters--Alxeandra's Legacy (Legacy #1)

Paranormal Romance--werewolf

Alexandra Riley's day starts out like any other in her normal, predictable world. Then a tall, dark stranger bursts into her father's garage and shatters the illusion. In one shocking moment, she discovers why she's been feeling hot, restless she's the half-breed daughter of a legendary werewolf and is a much-sought-after prize.

Joshua Striker, enforcer in charge of protecting the alphas of the Wolf Creek pack, has come to take Alex home. Nothing more, nothing less. From the first moment he sees her, she becomes the one thing he can't afford a distraction from his duty. A weakness he doesn't want but can't resist needing.

If only keeping her safe was as simple as fending off males on the hunt for a mate. Through city streets to the mountains of North Carolina, Alex and Joshua have to evade those who don't want their pure bloodlines tainted with human DNA, as well as bounty hunters who think the only good werewolf is a dead one.

What Joshua and Alex can't outrun is the passion that flares between them or the choice Alex must eventually face. Whether to claim her inner wolf, or forfeit her chance to claim Joshua as her own.

{4 stars}
This is the first book I've read by this author, and was pleasantly suprised. The storyline is detailed, action packed, with well developed characters. Joshua and Alex are a great pairing. Alex had no idea what she really was, but when it literally came crashing through the window at her, she stepped up and didn't act like a weak woman to scared to move. She is an equal match to Joshua, who is the pack enforcer. He is not the pretty boy werewolf, but the hard nosed, stubborn alpa wolf. (Totally HOT) He has to protect her and get her back to the compound. But there are rogue werewolves and hunters trying to stop them. Alex cracks a few times in their race home, but she gets ahold of her emotions quickly and steps up to the next challenge to keep them both alive. All the while their passion for each other is growning, but Joshua won't claim her until they are home and can properly challenge anyone for the right to claim her.

I really like the start of this series, it is not far off from the traditional werewolf storylines, but it is unique enough in its character development to keep you reading. I couldn't wait to find out how it turned out and am looking forward to starting book 2 immediately.
