Riya is a bit of a klutz. And how. Not only does she head-butt the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but she also manages to put them both in the path of a charging bear. She’d only thought to spend an enjoyable afternoon fly-fishing for salmon, not doing her best to repel the sexiest man alive. Luckily he’s made of sterner stuff.

Capac is more than thrilled to find his mate, even if she’ll forever keep him on his toes. But with the change in leadership of the dark wolves, Riya will be in greater danger than his wolf brothers’ mates ever were. Capac has no choice but to integrate Riya into his world post-haste, or risk the chance of losing her forever.

Burning Ice is the sixth book in the Werewolf Sentinels series by the super talented Marisa Chenery. It’s a great read…fast paced and engaging. It kept my interest from start to finish.

This exciting series continues to grow as the last Sentinel, Capac, finds his mate. I’ve enjoyed each and every one of the books in this series. I knew I’d be feeling the loss when that last wolf brother found his mate. But since the writer has been on top of her game and kept her series fresh…I’m not sweating it cause this series seems far from over.

Capac is the last bachelor in the wolf den. He’s feeling lonely and a bit out of place, when he meets his woman just as she ends up blundering into the path of a hungry bear. I liked that part…Riya being an accident waiting to happen. She tries to put her best foot forward…and instead she ends up putting it in her mouth or using it to wound somebody. Being a bit clumsy myself, I understood where Riya was coming from. Because of her clumsiness, Riya hasn’t had much success in the relationship business. She has trouble buying that a hot stud like Capac woud really want to tie himself to her. She hesitates on accepting what Capac has to offer. It is her hesitancy on that important decision that brings about a violent and shocking ending to the story.

I really like how this writer gives me heroines who never quite fit the standard mold. I love how her heroes are always strong alpha dudes. Her characters are usually wonderful. However, I have to tell the truth and say that I just did not like Wren, the new girl. I like that the writer has introduced new characters into this game…that way my series can play out longer. And it keeps things interesting. But I just wasn’t digging the loud mouthed Wren. There is something off with that girl. She’s been living with Riya for over a year, yet she’s been distant toward her.

And…oh boy…she’s been keeping one hell of a secret. Now that Riya is involved with a wolf brother…Wren wants to be her best girlfriend. Unh Unh…sister. And she’s hitting on Ryder awfully hard. He aint buying the goods. So this is gonna go down either of two ways…Wren is working an angle or she knows he is her one true guy. Either way, I can’t wait to find out what happens.

I’m gonna say it again, Marisa Chenery is a super talented writer. I loved this fast paced story. I liked the strong plot that this series has centered around. I do love my wolves, but ice age wolves, that is a fresh idea that has played out wonderfully. The series has been ever changing and that has kept me interested in each new story. The writing is flawless and each new plot has flowed easily. The intimate scenes were hot and very detailed. Gotta love that. In fact I did love it ! But the one thing that I love most was how the writer stepped out of the box with this story as well as the others. Her characters are flawed, they are damaged and they don’t always react the same. And they always have an exciting story to tell.

So hurry up Ms. Chenery. I can’t wait to see what’s up with Ryder and Wren.
