He’ll risk it all to bring her home.

Morgan Carter witnessed her sister’s murder, has been turned into a werewolf and is now raising her young niece. Then her fiance, Greyson Crawford, proves he wants to be with her for the wrong reasons, and she knows her life couldn’t be any stranger. Devastated, she retreats to her cozy house in the city with her sister’s little girl, Lana. There, they’ll have normalcy, and maybe eventually, even happiness.

But Morgan’s the only living silver wolf. Her uniqueness—the ability to produce werewolf offspring—means, without Grey’s protection, she’s unknowingly put herself and Lana in deadly danger. Other werewolves want to claim her for their pack, and she’s the easiest, most tempting prey ever.

When they strike, Grey has to find her and rescue her before it’s too late. Not so simple a task; he has only the uncontrollable beast inside him, Wolf, and an unlikely pack of allies he’s forced to rely on. Can he get to her in time? And if he does, can he convince her he’s there for the right reasons, saving them both?

REVIEW
After reading and really loving the first book in the series, I couldn't wait to read more about Grey and Morgan. Even though I am on a self imposed book buying ban I just had to break it for this book and the price was an absolute bargain!

The cover has two wolves in the background, one with its head raised in the air howling. I am guessing these wolves represent Grey and Morgan. Once again the the foreground of the book is Morgan with her dark hair and purple/violet coloured eyes. The font style for the book title, book series and author name are all as for the previous book which I think are still perfect for this book and really pull together the different books very well. I'd certainly love to have the full set in paperback on my book shelves.

The genre's I have found listed in various places for this book are Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance, Shapeshifter and Werewolves. They all fit the book very well and I love a great shapeshifter/werewolf book and if it's as good as Silver Wolf Clan, I am definitely looking forward to reading this one.

This book basically picks up where Silver Wolf left off. Grey has proposed to Morgan and she has accepted. The Dallas Pack celebrate the good news with the couple and when the pack become curious about Morgan's eye colour it isn't long until the truth is out that Morgan is in fact a very rare wolf. The Dallas Pack soon learn that Morgan is a Silver Wolf, which is extremely rare and very coveted as it is the only female wolf that can breed. In other words Morgan has become a very prized possession for whoever manages to claim her as their mate and part of their pack. Rachel takes Morgan off to explain why all the unmated werewolves in the Dallas Pack are suddenly fascinated and posturing for Morgans attention, and why Grey is suddenly struggling to control his wolf from fighting them all. Rachel explains that Grey is a special wolf, a beast and that he will need to be to protect her from all the attention she is sure to get from the werewolf community. This leads to a rather big misunderstanding between Morgan and Grey. Grey's wolf  more or less tells Morgan that she is his responsibility to protect and with Morgan already feeling sensitive and used to being independent becomes irritated thinking Grey and his wolf view protecting her and being with her as a duty. Obviously upset Morgan takes Lana and moves back to her own little home in her already sketchy neighbourhood. Morgan tells Grey she needs space to think about what she truly wants. Morgan however doesn't take into account how interesting and how much other wolves will want to claim her for their pack with or without her consent. Grey stands back and gives Morgan time and space to become used to her wolf. He stops going around to Deans so that Morgan has the safety of the Dallas Pack to run with and learn from. In the meantime he purchases the land near the Dallas Pack property and sets about building his own future pack home. Marissa surprises the Dallas Pack and Grey by visiting him and helping him build his home. All the work Grey is doing on his land is with a future pack in mind. Grey still holds onto the hope that Morgan will come back to him.
Morgan simply returns the flowers that Grey sends to her for her and Lana. Lana does ask Morgan regularly when they will see Mr Grey again. The Dallas Pack do not talk about Grey to Morgan and it is Marissa who keeps Grey informed about how Morgan and Lana are and what they are doing. The serious problems begin when it becomes apparent that someone has leaked the information that Morgan is a Silver Wolf. As Dean, Alpha of the Dallas Pack had sworn his pack members to silence about Morgan the only person that wasn't bound by this order and no longer bothered what the Dallas Pack think of her is Alexis. It seems Alexis is still jealous of the fact Grey only has eyes for Morgan. It rankles Alexis even more that she was the one that by biting Morgan triggered her transformation into a wolf, not that she knew Morgan would be a Silver Wolf. 

I feel like I could seriously talk forever about this book and the Silver Wolf Clan series so far.
I love the character of Marissa even more. The way she has confided in Grey how she was made a werewolf and abused by her monster maker. Marissa feels she has that in common with Grey as he was also turned by a monster wolf. Marissa feels more comfortable around Grey as he is naturally protective over her. Viewing her as a younger sibling and is protective of her. The fact Grey is a beast of a wolf and not afraid to growl his anger or frustration if he feels Dallas Pack members Jason and Logan are hassling Marissa also comforts her. Though Dean tries his best to keep Jason and Logan in line, they are also members if his pack and as Alpha he has to keep his male wolves content as well as care for Marissa. Dean and Rachel give their blessing and permission for Marissa to spend time round at Grey's place when Logan and Jason's attention are too much for her.

Morgan soon learns how Marissa felt when she herself is kidnapped by the Montana Pack. The Alpha, John has decided she is to be his. The kidnappers are very clever feigning a kidnap attempt on little Lana, which so easily sends Grey and Wolf off to bring back the child he has come to think of as his own. Though Grey fights Lana's kidnappers he is well outnumbered and they succeed in taking Morgan. Grey is in a seriously injured state, and it is difficult for other wolves to help him when they secretly want fight him in his weakened state to dominate his wolf, and in his injured state he wants to fight anyone and everyone too. It is the smaller, less dominate, submissive Marissa who takes Grey and his wolf under her control to keep him calm whilst Wade arrives and assess the injuries he has sustained.

Can the Dallas Pack Doctor Wade patch Grey up? Grey ends up feeling really sorry for himself, even his wolf feels inadequate and that he is somehow to blame that Morgan is not safe. When Grey and his wolf finally regain consciousness about 24 hours after his attack, he is inconsolable, blaming himself for not sorting things out with Morgan.  vIt is Marissa that snaps him out of this mood, more or less telling him to buck his ideas up and go out there and fight to get his mate back! I think Marissa is the only one that would ever get away with talking to Grey and Wolf in the manner she does.
Can the Dallas pack use their knowledge and resources track where Morgan has been taken? If Grey can rescue Morgan will she accept him and his wolf as hers? Let's just say the Black Wolf does have his revenge but will it be too late for his relationship possibilities and future with Morgan.

This book is definitely filled with action, and grabs your attention at the beginning, keeping a hold of it until the very end and then....leaves you wanting even more!

My immediate thoughts upon finishing reading this book were that is was a brilliant read, I am loving this series so far. Looking forward to reading more. Still loving Grey n Morgan and think Marissa is a brilliant character and could be a fantastic big sister figure to Lana.
