Wolf's Blade By: Clare Dargin
"Samantha Dixon rescues a wounded wolf shifter in the woods near her home … and unwittingly gets drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a murderer. Callum Blake is on the trail of an evil man who would be king of all wolfkind, no matter the cost … it’s up to Callum to stop him. How can Callum fulfill his duty to protect his pack and save the woman who is destined to be his mate? Filled with passion, action, and suspense, Wolf’s Blade is Book 1 of Clare Dargin’s new paranormal romance series, The Paladins.
Callum Blake is the lead Paladin for his pack. He is on a mission to capture Eryx Leva, a murderer who has stolen a sacred dagger that will enable him to become king of all wolfkind. Obsessed with his sworn duty to protect the knife at all costs, the last thing Callum expects is to run into his fated mate. Determined to make Eryx face pack justice, Callum believe he has no time for love or claiming a mate. But does the goddess who sent him on this important mission have plans of her own?
Samantha Dixon is alone. Her life of alienation is the result of a broken heart. When her husband died ten years ago she didn’t think she’d ever find love again. But when she rescues a fellow wolf shifter who’s close to death in the woods near her home, an act of mercy draws her into a dangerous chain of events that will change her life forever.
Now that Eryx has set his sights on Samantha, Callum is faced with the challenge of a lifetime--rescuing the woman he loves and saving all of wolf kind.

I will say I wasn't sure about this read but I am so glad I continued on only to find this one a well written Paranormal read about shifters and wolves. This author gives the read a rather interesting concept t of 'shifters and wolves as two different species. The heroine and hero were well developed, defined and well portrayed keeping your attention all the way to the end. To see what will happen when the hero is hunted by a ex-pack-mate who is determine kill him and get his potential mate. Be ready for some really hot sex scenes! You will have to pick up this interesting read "Wolf's Blade" to see how well this author brings it all out to the reader. Since this is the first in this series I am sure this author will have some more good stories in 'The Paladins Book Series.' Would I recommend this novel? Yes, especially if you like paranormal read involving shifters and wolves.
Thank you to the author for your gift of the read for my honest opinion of the read.
