The Delight

He was a hunter; she is a wolf.  While her mind is falling to pieces, the man she isn’t sure she can trust helps keep her together.  I’ve loved this series and saw the amazing twist it took in the last book opening up the world of the series, but I felt this one hit the happy medium of action-packed, personal crisis, suspense, and sensual romance.  Paige Tyler has seriously hit her stride with Wolf Rebel.


Wolf Rebel is the tenth of the SWAT books and is the culmination of Rachel and Knox’s story arc begun in an earlier book so it definitely isn’t one to take out of order.

Rachel has just come back off the big mission in LA and is keeping secrets about her performance ability from her boss.  Her PTSD is on the edge and her nightmares are keeping her from sleep and invading her days so she has blackout moments.  And, if that wasn’t bad enough, the hunter she should have shot and killed has arrived on her doorstep with a shocking story and asking for her help.  Meanwhile, she has to work with Knox on a security detail and she isn’t sure she can trust him or herself at this point.  The clock is ticking on which of her secrets will explode in her face first.  Rachel is denying a great deal about herself even what she suspects is between her and Knox.

Knox had a moment on one of his Navy SEAL missions that took him out of the SEALs and into one impulsive decision after another with the hunter experience being a stupid and bad one.  But, it lead him to Rachel and she can help him figure out the weird thing that is happening to him even as he is there for her to help hold her together through the PTSD nightmares plaguing her into mental breaks.  They have a family to guard against a criminal organization who will ruthlessly destroy all witnesses, evidence, and those who work for justice against the head of their business.  It’s a struggle to focus on the job when Rachel’s safety, sanity, and well being are what he most cares about.

As I said in my intro, this book seemed to bring it all together.  I was one who never forgot that moment when Rachel let a certain hunter live when she had him in her sights and it occurred to me then that it would be interesting if he was her The One.  Worst-case, right!  What do you do if your soulmate is part of the enemy camp?  It was fun to finally explore that one even if there were mitigating circumstances.  I also enjoyed exploring further this new broader world now that we know werewolves are only the tip of the claw out there.  Wouldn’t it be cool if other paranormals might be a The One for one of the other SWAT team?  Though, looks like Mike might be marked for a certain human mate.

There was a lot of action and suspense in this one between Rachel’s nightmare come to life and the crime business guy sending killing crews after the justice folks and witnesses.  But, the romance and development didn’t suffer.  Rachel and Knox got to know each other’s backgrounds and worked as partners on the job and helping each other through their issues.  They had some hot and spicy moments, but that didn’t come first.

The big money scene and afterward with the pack were the best.  I flew through this book in nearly one sitting and was left well satisfied.  I can’t wait to see what comes next for SWAT or the new spin-off series.  Those who love a strong dose of suspense and action with their paranormal romance should definitely give this series a go.

My thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.

The last books by this author I read were Wolf Rising and Her Perfect Mate. I haven’t read a lot of her books but this series always sounds good. I will get around to it at some point.

Dani @ Perspective of a Writer

Sounds like a fun series. You know a series is good when they’re in book #10! I’ll have to share this with my writing partner, this sounds like her kind of series. Plus I don’t remember her mentioning it to me so I can share a new series with her!

Oh cool! Glad to put you onto one you can pass on. Often enough, the first book goes up as a freebie to tempt new readers. 🙂

I love that one thing you can really count on with this author is how well you fly threw her stories, they are so engaging. I can’t wait to read this one. I really like the premise of your mate being part of the enemy camp.

Was it the first book in the series? I found that one only so-so. But, there are definitely a half dozen of these that have been fabulous.
