Rowan would give his life to protect the woman he loves and Lyric is determined to save Rowan, even if it’s from her own pack.
A WOMAN IN NEED OF SAVING…
Lyric Carmichael is a shifter who’s used to fighting with odds stacked against her, but this time she might’ve bitten off more than she can chew.
A BADASS SOLDIER…
Rowan Shade, a Navy SEAL who’s used to wading into battles doesn’t hesitate when he sees a gorgeous woman being attacked by a group of men, only this time he might be the one needing saved.
A LOVE BEYOND REASON…
As Lyric introduces Rowan to her world as a new shifter, danger to the pack intensifies. Pack is everything to the Iron Wolves and when one of their own betrays them, they face a battle that could destroy them from the inside out.
I am doing a re-read of Iron Wolves since there is now a new series with their offspring and I wanted to refresh my memory of all the key players. I also found I haven’t reviewed them all, so I’ll be doing that as well.
Lyric is Xan’s sister, she frequently goes out with Kellen’s sister Syn. Kellen is Alpha of their pack and President of the MC, Xan is Pack Beta and VP of the MC. To say they are over-protective is an understatement.
Lyric and Syn are out with some human friends and what was a fun and exhilarating night, turns deadly. A strange wolf attempts to kidnap Lyric as she leaves the restroom. In the events that follow, she has a human rescuer, one who is bitten by the leader of the mangy wolves.
Once Lyric realizes the man has been bitten and does the only thing she can, she soothes the first bite then bites him again, linking him to her pack instead of the unknown. Instead of taking him to the clubhouse she takes him home figuring she will stay with him a couple of days until he shifts. Unfortunately, it’s going to happen a lot quicker than that.
This is a favorite scene after Rowan shifts.
Rowan shook out his hands and rolled his head around like he was getting ready for a fight. He exhaled loudly and then inhaled. Kellen wasn’t sure what the fuck the guy thought was going to happen. He’d always been the less talk, more action type guy himself.
Without pausing, he opened himself to Rowan, barreling into the mind of the wolf and took over the shift. Fuck! Three shifts in one night, and he still had to do it again when they got back to the house. Rowan was probably crying like a bitch and wishing for death right about now. Only Kellen didn’t find him cowering in the corner of his mind. The man was trying to handle the pain without showing any outward signs. Obviously, Uncle Sam’s training was paying off.
After he made sure Rowan could hold the shift, he opened a connection to all three of his pack members. All right, my minions, follow me and don’t fuck around. I’m not in the mood to hunt, kill, or fuck Bambi. Dude, that is messed up on a level even Bodhi ain’t messed up on.
Xan nudged him in the side. Who wants to fuck Bambi? Unless she’s some new hot chick?
What is going on? Why can I hear you in my head? Rowan asked.
That’s the power of the alpha. Sorry, I sorta screwed you by not taking you to him for your first shift. I just thought we’d have a few days. Lyric’s voice sounded apologetic.
We will talk about it when we get to Rowan’s.
Kellen didn’t allow any room for arguments. With Xan taking the lead, he nipped Lyric, letting her know without words he wanted her to follow. Rowan, still in protective mode, would follow, of that Kellen had no doubt.
He understood more about Rowan in the moments he was inside his mind than he’d ever get talking to the man for days or weeks in a deep interrogation session. The man was definitely in lust with Lyric, and, if he wasn’t missing his mark, they were meant to be mates. Things were about to get interesting. He kept his chuckle to himself, knowing his best friend was gonna be one pissed off big brother when he realized his baby sister was about to be mated.

I laughed way too hard at the Bambi references as Kellen realizes Rowan’s thoughts about turning.
Lots of suspense as they try to figure out who has it in for Xan. As a message is left on one female’s car and another they discover is missing. Both of whom have shown interest in Xan.
Betrayal within the pack I didn’t see coming. There are also references to the Mystic Pack I’ve reviewed all but one of those but maybe I’ll do a re-read and add the one I don’t have.
