The guys in the Special Wolf Alpha Team (SWAT) are hotter than ever.
SWAT werewolf Diego Martinez was on a mission to save lives when he walked into the hostage situation—he didn't expect to find a newly turned teenage werewolf and the kid's fiercely protective mother. For Bree Harlow and her son, Brandon, Diego is a godsend, and not just because he saved the day.
Bree has spent the years since her divorce trying to do her best by Brandon. But lately the boy who used to tell her everything has been keeping secrets. In the face of all the bizarre things happening at home, there's something about Diego that Bree can't resist—especially when he's able to explain Brandon's new abilities.
But the hostage incident was just the start in a wave of violence that no one can explain, and when Bree and Brandon are caught in the middle, Diego will do everything in his power to protect the family he wants as his own.

"Paige Tyler's SWAT series hits all the right marks, blending steamy paranormal fantasy with modern-day realism."—Larissa Ione, New York Times bestselling author
Tyler's far-fetched 11th Special Wolf Alpha Team romance (after Wolf Rebel) grafts the soapy romance trope in which a single mother meets a good man who helps her evade her unhinged ex onto a gonzo suspense plot. Dallas SWAT negotiator Diego Martinez meets teenage Brandon Harlow, a recently turned beta werewolf, and his mother, Bree, an insurance investigator, while rescuing them from a man who has taken them hostage and who seems to be under some kind of mind control. Diego grows close with the Harlows, and his colleagues on his all-werewolf SWAT team encourage him to take Brandon under his wing as his alpha and to realize that Bree is his fated mate. But Bree's aggressive ex-husband, Dave Cowell, recently released from prison after serving time for murder, doesn't appreciate Diego's presence in Bree and Brandon's life. Bree and Diego come off as competent and levelheaded in both work and love, and the Harlows' welcome into Diego's community is conflict free, but as mind-controlled criminals continue to plague the city, collateral carnage piles up. The eventual resolution strains credulity even in a world with werewolves. This overstuffed installment will please die-hard series fans, as long as they're willing to suspend disbelief.
