From J.R. Rain, the international bestselling author of over sixty novels, and H. P. Mallory, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, comes their first co-written book, ICE WOLF!
Ellie Matthews is the new police chief in Hope, Alaska. An experienced homicide detective, she’s running from a past that haunts her. One bullet changed her entire life and set her on a career path that collides with native lore, shape-shifter legends… and wolves.
In ICE WOLF, a hunter stumbles upon a naked body. When Ellie and her deputy retrieve the frozen corpse, he’s got a silver dagger in his chest but no ID. It’s Ellie’s first homicide case in Hope and she aims to solve it. But even stranger things happen and this murder investigation will be anything but routine. Ellie doesn’t want to believe the forensic evidence, but there’s something creepy about the John Doe victim. There’s no way that she’d walk away from this case, but maybe she should run.
The prime suspect is Alex Johnson, a bounty hunter who knows a lot more about shifters than he’s telling. But is he crying wolf? Things could get downright steamy with Ellie’s number-one suspect, who may be her only ally in town. But can this beauty trust a beastly hunk who’s under arrest?
It will take all of Ellie’s homicide investigation experience to track down the killer before the killer finds her first.
“ICE WOLF is funny, thrilling and sexy! It’s a page-turner with spine-tingling suspense, a hot romance and a compelling paranormal mystery. I fell in love with the Alaska setting and the engaging characters. It’s like Joe Leaphorn meets ‘Eureka.’ Loved it. More werewolves, please!” —Eve Paludan, Author of Vampire for Hire: Wolf Moon
