#BookReview – “Embracing the Wolf” by Felicity Heaton


Kat, a hunter with the Werewolf Control Forces, fled her alpha werewolf lover, Amon, when he told her that she too had the gene in her blood and would one day mature into a werewolf—into his mate.

Four years on, Kat has now matured. Each night she fights the ‘beast’ inside of her and her desire to return to Amon. She hunts rogue werewolves with a vengeance, hating her kind and her blood, gaining satisfaction from eradicating those that have surrendered to darkness and violence, but she can’t change her feelings and her craving for Amon is becoming stronger with every dream she has of him.

When Amon’s pack finally catches up with her, she discovers that he’s dangerously close to turning rogue and only she can save him from the darkness. An encounter with Amon reignites the passion they had once shared, dreams constantly stir her hunger for him, and Kat finds herself faced with a hard decision. Will she let him turn rogue and hunt him, or will she embrace the wolf and mate with Amon to save them both?


After the death of a friend, Kat joined the Wolf Control Forces in order to protect humans from dangerous rogue wolves. Through the WCF, she met Amon, the alpha of a pack, and they fell in love. Once she realized they were mates and that she, too, was a wolf, she ran away from him, determined to never give in to the beast inside her. No one in the WCF knows she’s a wolf, and she plans to keep it that way.

Amon desperately loves Kat and needs her as his mate. He’s close to turning rogue—an out of control wolf who kills indiscriminately—and only Kat can save him. But will she do so?

I couldn’t connect with Kat at all. She knowingly put Amon through years of torture because she was scared of her inner wolf, and I couldn’t understand how she could be so cruel. I liked Amon and felt sorry for him, but I don’t understand why he blamed himself for Kat’s fear. Their love for one another was obvious once they finally met again, and their reunion was both sweet and passionate.

I liked Ms. Heaton’s writing style, so I’ll be sure to check out more of her books.
