I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Dr. Annie Cryer has been called many things: Genius. Child prodigy. Scientific wonder.

Wolf Shifter.

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...

Something to Howl About is a short novella introducing Alphaville. The town of Alpha is where shifters who don’t really get along in the outside world come to reside. Not because they are bad or anything, they just aren’t of a pack mentality or prefer their own ways.

It just so happens that Dr. Annie Cryer is wandering the country without a place to settle since being booted from her pack. She is excited to get the call from her Alpha saying if she goes to Alpha to help with a problem, he will allow her back to the pack. Annie heads straight for Alpha determined to get their problem solved and get back to her beloved pack. However, things do not go as planned when she comes face to face with a certain bear and her mating bell rings.

Jonas can’t believe he is so drawn to this shifter and has these beliefs that bears do not have the same mating instincts that wolves do, and therefore Annie’s claim to be his mate is not his problem. He just wants a little fun, not this serious mating stuff. Fortunately he gets set straight. What good bear doesn’t listen to his mama?

Annie is a strong-willed and brilliant character. She will get to the bottom of this whole mating discussion. I really enjoyed the banter between these two. They were a lot of fun. This was a really cute introduction to the characters of Alpha, and I’m excited to learn more about those that choose to live there.

About Christine Warren

Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that…

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

She enjoys hearing from readers and can be reached via email sent to [email protected] or by postal mail to Christine Warren, PO Box 871900, Vancouver, WA 98687-1900.
