Angus Murray, bouncer for a New Orleans Shifter bar, is sent to round up an elusive, Collar-less Shifter woman, Tamsin Calloway, who is causing trouble for Shifter Bureau, and possesses information they want. If Angus refuses, he risks losing his cub. He finds Tamsin but she's slippery and not about to be rounded up quietly.
In fact, quiet is nothing Tamsin will ever be. She leads Angus on a wild chase, but he's determined to bring her in to save his son.
Can Tamsin convince Angus she's worth helping before she's locked away by Shifter Bureau, Collared, or perhaps killed?

Midnight Wolf is the story of Angus, the wolf shifter who bounces at a bar in New Orleans. We haven’t really seen a whole lot of the New Orleans shifter town, so we are introduced to some new characters.
Angus is know as a great tracker and that is what brings Shifter Bureau to his doorstep. They want him to track a shifter who they have been unable to catch. Normally helping Shifter Bureau would be the last thing Angus would do, but they have taken his son, leaving him with no choice but to complete the job assigned to him.
We start to run into all kinds of problems when Angus does catch up with his quarry. Tamsin is fast, and sneaky. But there is also a pull between the two. After he catches her she has a medical need and Angus feels compelled to have her healed before turning her over to Shifter Bureau. But it keeps getting harder and harder to fight the urge to protect her. I was so excited during this period as they are hiding out at the sentient house and it does all kind of crazy things allowing certain people in and only certain people out. We also see some other shifters and possibly a goblin(?) come to help out Angus and Tamsin.
Angus is a smart wolf, and he starts to pull together a plan that can make both him and Tamsin happy. There starts a fantastic race across state lines. The more Angus tries to do to protect Tamsin, the more he realizes that she has secrets that have more than just Shifter Bureau chasing her down.
I loved the pace of Midnight Wolf. Tamsin is a great, fiery character that you can’t help to love. Angus is the brooding, hard to read shifter that takes a little pushing to get his feelings known. You can’t help but love him as well though. His past is so unhappy you just really cheer for him and Tamsin. Tamsin’s human personality and abilities match her animal’s so perfectly, making her a fiesty match for Angus.
The cover they choose for being on the run is such a great idea. Yet we still get to see an important shifter pulled in to help. I’m loving that about this series. I always get to see someone else from the series. I was a little surprised by one characters declaration of alliances, but then again, he is someone that cannot be led.
Midnight Wolf is a great, exciting story of a couple on the run, developing their romance along the way. Having Angus’s son along for the ride does help bring the two a little closer and the family dynamic really made you root for this couple even more. It was truly a fun book!
The narration of Midnight Wolf was just as great as expected for a Cris Dukehart narration. I’ve loved her throughout this whole series. She does a wonderful job with the pacing and keeping the adrenaline pumping through the book.
