Book Description

Cat got your tongue?

Granite Lake Wolves, Book 6

Tessa Williams is looking to make her mark outside the family business, and the unusual landlocked paddle wheeler she spots in Haines, Alaska, strikes her as the perfect location. Only the owner is being difficult, refusing to sell. Still, she’s sure that replacing her written queries with a little in-person charm is all she’ll need to shortly have her Eco-tour B&B on the road to success.

Local wolf-slash-owner of said vessel, Mark Weaver, isn’t hanging on to the landmark building out of spite. There are more reasons for holding back the sale than are easily explained on paper. A face-to-face meeting to resolve the matter only confounds it—when Mark recognizes Tessa as his mate.

But she’s a cat...and cats don’t do insta-mates.

The sexual attraction between them isn’t in question, just everything else. He wants her. She wants twue wuv. His wolf can’t figure out what the holdup is. Her cat thinks the entire situation, and the pack, are rather amusing.

Somewhere in here is the beginning of a beautiful relationship—if they don’t drive each other mad.

Warning: One hyper cat, one laid-back wolf. Inappropriate use of permanent markers, and a heaping side dish of cat/dog jokes. Shenanigans (read: nookie) in front of a roaring fire. Spiced liberally with sarcasm. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series March 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great series if you like paranormal romance. I do and I like it when the author builds out the characters so that you know them in the first book and then subsequent books. Some of the other shifter romances have tons of grammar errors which drive me insane. The Granite Lake Wolves series and Vivian Arend's other books don't seem to have this issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Humm March 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book, but it just seemed that there wasn't much of a story. It was just predictable. I'm not saying I didn't like but I would of like a bit more to the story. The last few book of this series have been predictable and not much to them really. I wouldn't buy this book because the summary is basically the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entry in a fun series.... February 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I adore this series and this entry was a fun addition to it. We have glimpses of our past pairs and a fun new entry in to the Granite Lake pack.

Tessa is just wanting to do something that shows she can complete something and contribute. I got the initial impression that even though she is a responsible adult she feels like a failure in life. She's flighty and has her "Squirrel!!" moments but means well when she gets started. She has decided to try to purchase a paddleboat that she can then make in to a eco-friendly resort for those who want to explore the wildness that the area has to offer. She runs in to a bit of a snag when she meets the man who owns the property and can't sell it to her. She's attracted to him and wouldn't mind just having a little fun with no strings attached. After all she is a cat and who needs the whole insta-mate thing that wolves have.

Mark is something else. I adored this wonderful man who just wants to do the right thing by his grandfather and start to have a real career/life. He's always floated from temp job to temp job with the unfortunate luck of always being let go just when things seemed to be going his way. We meet him as he gets let go yet again ... I just wanted to cuddle him (ummm well to be honest more than just cuddle) and make things better but hey he gets the whirlwind of Tessa blowing in to his life. She's just what he needed from both a personal and professional aspect. His wolf recognizes this whirlwind as his mate but he ends up having to work really hard to understand her in order to have her feel like he really loves her and not just a fluke of fate. He's such a sweet guy with what he does for her even after the lava bean incident.

3.0 out of 5 stars Losing altitude.... May 13, 2013
By Lettee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really am sorry to say this, but this series is starting to lose altitude in great reading. I really like this series but this particular book was not up to par with the others in this series.

I do NOT like putting Spoilers in my reviews and most would think this isn't one, but just in case:
***SPOILER ALERT BY DESCRIBING HOW THE BOOK GOES - But I'm not giving much away***

You have your male shifter that finds his mate. The female doesn't want to rush into being mates. She wants to "Fall in love" first. They go on living their lives without much going on. You have 1 foreplay sex scene. You have one actual sex scene. There is only "1" action-like/altercation scene. Then they get mated. Then there is a small part afterwards where you have the whole pack together and in that I laughed out loud TWICE. There is a story in between all of this, but that's it. Nothing else! The End. :( Unfortunately, that is all that is in this book.


There are no highlights to this story. This is nothing like the other books in this series. Not really. Oh the jest of the story is somewhat the same, but it is really bland.

I really do like Vivian Arend's writing, but unfortunately, I can't really say I would recommend this book. I feel there isn't much in it to be interesting enough to be necessary to read before you would read her books to come in this series. However, if you don't have much else to read, give it a go.

A great story with wonderful characters. But there is always a but it just to dang short. I. Really thought the author could have given its little more action or interaction maybe. But it is very good. Just short it went way to quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of Furry Jokes and Flirty Cuteness! April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Even though this is the 6th installment in the Granite Lake Wolves series, this book was my first trip into Vivian Arend's werewolf universe but, it most definitely will not be my last! I enjoyed the way that the main couple's animal traits are worked into their personalities because it made for some incredibly quirky characters and also a few funny misunderstandings given that Tessa is a cat and Mark is a wolf. Great writing, a playful story and sizzling chemistry make Wolf Nip a must read for all paranormal romance lovers.

The evolution of Tessa and Mark's relationship was surprisingly believable for the number of pages Arend used to accomplish the feat. I liked that Williams resisted Weaver's crazy mating instincts in the early stages of their business partnership if only for the giggle worthy conversation that ensued as a result. Listening to a wolf trying to explain one of his baser instincts to a cat is like watching my fiancé attempting to order in French at the drive thru. No one is speaking the same language!

I thoroughly enjoyed Vivian's writing style and I can't help but feel a little foolish for not having picked up one of her books before now. I loved the corniness behind the cat/dog relationship and Arend's sarcastic sense of humour fit this story's tone perfectly. I didn't make the connection between the title and the plot until after I finished the novel but even it contains a furry joke! The flirty verbal play between Tess and Mark was almost as sexy as their horizontal dances. Fortunately, there's no shortage of either!

Wolf Nip is a lighthearted tale that goes above and beyond the typical "opposites attract" rule by pairing the most unlikely of duos: cats and dogs!
