Wicked Wolf (Redwood Pack #8) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The war between the Redwood Pack and the Centrals is one of wolf legend. Gina Eaton lost both of her parents when a member of their Pack betrayed them. Adopted by the Alpha of the Pack as a child, Gina grew up within the royal family to become an enforcer and protector of her den. She’s always known fate can be a tricky and deceitful entity, but when she finds the one man that could be her mate, she might throw caution to the wind and follow the path set out for her, rather than forging one of her own. 

Quinn Weston’s mate walked out on him five years ago, severing their bond in the most brutal fashion. She not only left him a shattered shadow of himself, but their newborn son as well. Now, as the lieutenant of the Talon Pack’s Alpha, he puts his whole being into two things: the safety of his Pack and his son. 

When the two Alphas put Gina and Quinn together to find a way to ensure their treaties remain strong, fate has a plan of its own. Neither knows what will come of the Pack’s alliance, let alone one between the two of them. The past paved their paths in blood and heartache, but it will take the strength of a promise and iron will to find their future.

My review:
This is a bridge book. The end of the Redwood Pack series and the beginning of the Talon Pack series but not really a part of either so it can be read stand-alone. 
Gina is a hybrid half wolf half witch.  She was orphaned by the war as a young girl and taken in by the alpha couple and added to their family.  Now 26 she is a young dominant female who has been foretold to be the Packs future Enforcer.  To prep her for that role and to help prepare for unnamed problems ahead the Alphas of the Redwood pack and the Talon pack have decided to form a council of sorts to help the packs come together and not join but get along better.  Gina is to lead the Redwood contingent.
Quinn is a strong lieutenant from the Talon pack.  He has been mated before.  His wife had a witch sever the mate ties between them just after she gave birth to their son.  Jesse has never been healthy since and is starting to fail.  So Quinn is not at his best when his Alpha assigns him to lead the Talon contingent and the fact that he is attracted to the half witch bugs the hell out of him.
Wicked Wolf is a super fast paced shifter romance with all the traits that make it a Carrie Ann Ryan hit.  When you read a Carrie Ann Ryan shifter romance you enter a world like and unlike our own.  There is magic and wonder and hurt and pain and smoking hot sex and a happily ever after. If you haven’t read a Carrie Ann Ryan book this might be a good one to start with.
