"Intense action, sizzling romance, and bold writing... Paige Tyler has a new fan in me!"—LARISSA IONE, New York Times Bestselling Author, for Wolf Hunger
Just when he's found The One...he might lose her.
SWAT Officer Jayden Brooks doesn't believe there's a soul mate out there for him—The One. But when he saves high school teacher Selena Rosa from a hostage situation, he knows he's in big trouble. Her scent is irresistible.
Selena finds the big cop irresistible, too. In fact, the buttoned-up teacher gets a little carried away—during a steamy make-out session, she bites him. Turns out, the traumatizing events at the school triggered her werewolf gene. Fangs and claws are appearing and her aggression is out of control. The change is happening, and Selena doesn't understand.
It's going to take everything Brooks has to pull her back from the edge...and ultimately win her heart.

The Dallas PD SWAT team have their hands full, thanks to a growing drug problem and gang-related incidents: a raid on a warehouse doesn’t go exactly as planned, then there’s a hostage situation in the Terrace Grove High School, where Jayden Brooks takes a bullet meant for teacher Selena Rosa. Jayden wasn’t too badly injured because he’s a werewolf, but most startling was that Selena might be “The One” for him, his true mate. The hostage-taking triggered Selena’s shifter DNA to surface, and Selena’s first shift might happen sooner than anticipated, which makes Jayden wonder if the connection he and Selena share could only be a reaction to her impending change.
This is a great book! WOLF RISING is the eighth instalment in the SWAT series, and decidedly one of the finest books in this series. While recurring characters are featured, and there’s a continuing story arc, WOLF RISING stands perfectly on its own; no pertinent details are missing, no one will be lost! WOLF RISING is flawlessly paced: from the explosive action at the beginning, to the SWAT team trying to elucidate the mystery of “the hunters”, finding the identity of the traitor in the Dallas Police Department, and the sultry romantic times between Jayden and Selena, it all flows seamlessly. The dialogues are spot-on, the plot meticulously crafted, and again Paige Tyler has written a splendid hero: no woman in her right mind could resist Jayden! And, apart from the eye colour, the model on the cover is exactly how I imagined Jayden. Selena is a fighter, she doesn’t shy away from confrontations, and she surprises everyone, even herself; one couldn’t dream of a better-matched pair.
Villains can make or break a suspense novel, and the bad guys in WOLF RISING are superb: they are terrifyingly realistic, ordinary people who have somehow turned deadly. There are a few subplots that bode well for the future: one revolving around Zane Kendrick, another around Carter Nelson – both Jayden’s teammates – and the secondary are fully fleshed-out and enhance the story: Becca, a good friend of Selena’s; Ernesto, Ruben, and a most intriguing black cat. The chemistry between Selena and Jayden is palpable from the start, and getting to know both their backstories was exquisitely done, and it makes us believe that they fall for each other so quickly. WOLF RISING is an excellent read, and with the hints dropped at the end, I am already eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!
