My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Just a quick note first. The cover art for Wolf in His Heart accurately depicts the main character Sage and I think that that's absolutely fabulous.
Now, this is book seven of the
Salvation Pack Series
and the first time I've read any of the books. Honestly, I'm on the fence with this one. I liked it but there was something in the back of my brain going hurry up get to the point. I guess I expected certain things to happen with the main character that didn't. Not to mention I wasn't too crazy about the female lead.
Sage Gallagher is a 3/4 werewolf organic farmer and all the things the reader expects to encounter when it comes to male leads. He's tall, protective, well built and handsome with a heart of gold. Not to mention he has the patience of a saint. Unable to embrace the wolf luring under his skin, he sometimes feels inadequate compared to some of the full blooded males around. Heck, his identical twin (Reece) can shift but Sage just happen to draw the short end of the stick. His handicap doesn't get him down because he's more than capable of taking care of his mate and family if the need arises. Our female lead Rina is on the run. Banished from her pack for refusing a forced marriage, she finds herself alone and gaining the attention of one of the locale crazies. Forced to abandon the life she just started to rebuild for herself, she has no other option than to run from the men chasing her. Don't worry her rescuer is the wolfy farmer and he'll anything to protect her.
While reading you're able to feel the love and compassion but I got the feeling that the courtship between the two main characters was kind of lopsided. His character was overly indulgent while I found her's to be a little selfish. Its understood that the females lead's background plays a part in her behavior but in this instance it was a turn off. There's an underlying current that the hero isn't really good enough but he'll do. This was a solid read that neatly ties into the next installment.
