My Rating:

Heat Level: 2/5
Donovan must bring the Pack Alpha home and nothing more. But when he catches the sexy scent of Lisa Delaney, he's hers, body and soul-and ready to risk both on an erotic desire that will shatter all boundaries.

Kelon intends to return to his pack after helping Donovan, but he never counted on the voluptuous distraction of Robin Delaney. She's the one woman who can make him contemplate a choice no werewolf should have to make.

Wyatt can't afford to be attracted to the practical, completely human Heather Delaney. But she isn't a woman a man ignores-no matter what the cost.
It was going to be one of those nights.

Donovan is on a mission to retrieve his packs' alpha when he encounters his mate. But she is human and his pack won't accept a human for his mate because of his high pack rank.

The two of them get off to a hot and heavy start. There is an instant attraction which she tries to ignore because she doesn't have time for a man in her life right now.

Lisa does eventually decide to give it a chance and Donovan is content to wait until she fully accepts him.

"You need to clean up."

Kelon, Donovan's twin brother, has come to help him protect his new mate and her sister from a threat to their safety. What he didn't expect was to find that his brother's mate's sister would be his true mate. Another forbidden human mating.

Kelon and Robin's relationship was a little slower in starting. Kelon chose the route of courting Robin first instead of just jumping into bed together. Which is understandable with her background and condition.

One of the threats to the sisters was taken care of before they moved on to offer assistance to Donovan and Kelon's cousin and alpha, Wyatt.

"There's no such thing as werewolves."

Heather has come home to find her two younger sisters shacking up with men believing themselves to be werewolves. Heather knows there is no such thing as werewolves, and begins to question their sanity.

She agrees to accompany her sisters and their mates to the wolf compound where she then encounters her own wolf mate, Wyatt. There was an instant attraction between the two, but she was a little more weary of Wyatt than her sisters had been about their mates. But with Wyatt being so hot, she decided she could overlook his claims to being a wolf.

I didn't really care for the way Lisa and Robin treated Heather in the beginning. They seemed to team up against her and treat her poorly because she didn't blindly believe Donovan and Kelon were wolves.

Of the three stories, my favorite would have to be Heather and Wyatt's. Running Wild was an okay start to the Wild series, and I wouldn't mind visiting it again to see how Wyatt's pack progresses.
