Banished from her pack years ago, Annie’s lone wolf wandering has brought her to Alpha, Washington, home to all shifters who don't quite fit in in the "normal" shifter word. Now Annie has the chance to go back home...if only she can make good on a favor her alpha owes the mayor of “Alphaville.” But it's not much of a favor when you're helping the hottest shifter in town...
Grizzly shifter Jonas Browning has a clan in trouble. They haven't had a child born in over a hundred years...and their clan faces going completely extinct. Genetic scientist Anne Cryer has been sent to help save them. But what Jonas doesn't count on is being irresistibly drawn to the small wolf shifter, and his bear isn't about to let her go…
I've always loved Christine Warren's shifter stories. Not that I didn't love her gargoyles too, but her shifters are my favorite. Something to Howl About is the first book in her new Alphaville series. It branches between her The Others series very nicely.
If you follow me then you know that Grizzlies are my favorite of the shifters with tigers running a close second. Not to worry there's a tiger in this series too. Happy days!
Since I love Grizzlies I couldn't wait for this story. It starts out so good with this very smart woman who isn't sure her place in life. She's thrown out of her other life and has coasted in life till now. Really liked Annie. She has such a sweet attitude when she so sad inside.
How lucky is she to find Jonas? I think she's lucky but then again...love grizzlies! Jonas is really set in his ways. He thinks one way and can't seem to get himself out of that mind set. Thank God for his mother.
This is a very short story but that doesn't take away for how good it is. It makes you want to learn more about the town and it's people and you get a real good romance to boot. It did it's job well!

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…
Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?
This is a exciting first book to this series. It's starts out with a bang and keeps going. I just loved it! Like I said above Warren's shifters are my favorite and Baby, I'm Howling For You reminded me why.
Right away your heart will pound with fear for poor Renny. She has spent so much of her time running from evil. When her time is almost up she's lucky enough to run into Mick Fischer. He's a true lone wolf. He knows the people in town but isn't really involved with them. Since he's lost his mate and home he keeps to himself.
Mick might have already found his mate and lost her but life has a way of messing with you in the way of a new mate.
Right away you know these two are perfect for each other. Mich and the town band behind Renny and make her feel at home. She was so lucky to find these people. The story ends well and you are satisfied with the outcome.
Not only that but you get to meat so many wonderful new characters. Characters that you can't wait for their stories. The most notable is John the mayor, Zeke and Molly and I can't forget Linus...he's a tiger! Told you there was a tiger in the series!
Each of these characters will make you want more of this series.
If you've read either Something To Howl About or Baby, I'm Howling for You, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
