Wolves At The Door Shapes Of Autumn: Book Two by Veronica Blade

Wolves at the Door (Shapes of Autumn #2)

NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: As with any Veronica Blade book, this is a ROMANCE NOVEL, meaning it's romance FIRST and everything else is secondary. Rated PG-13 for sexual situations and mild profanity.


Different species. Mortal enemies. It'll never work, but they'll die trying.

See the book trailer:

Tifferz Take~

Wolves at the door pick up right where we left off in book one.  Autumn has just learned she is a shape shifter  and  she is running through the forest with her boyfriend Zack. Who is planning to leave Autumn after graduation to protect her. So, Autumn is a shape shifter and Zack a wolf. I enjoyed when they are morphed into animal form as they can speak to each other telepathically.  Autumn and Zack are kinda breaking rules as shape shifters are not to socialized with werewolves unless they are slaves. So, they could get in big trouble should someone tell the werewolf king.
It was interesting to see how Autumn panic when running into other wolves who maybe scouts for the wolf king yet Zack seemed to keep his cool. They have a great balance. It is great how Autumn can be a cheetah, squirrel, hawk, wolf or any animal. That is really quit cool.
Autumn’s lovely parents want to move her yet again and right before prom again.  She is really upset and expresses that she hates moving and wants to go to prom and graduate. Autumn holds her ground and stays. Her mom leaves shortly after.  With Zack’s mom very sick. All are worried for her but she keeps refusing to go to the hospital.
Lives are endangered and people die. To be honest  I was surprised with the turn of events that unfold.  Secrets pile up and the thrilling ride continues. I would highly recommend this book! Veronica Blade has out done herself and I am eager for the next installment in the Shapes of Autumn Series

Just FYI~ This does have some mild swearing. It does not contain any sex but sex is talked about.

Author Bio:
Veronica Blade lives in Southern California with her husband and children. By day
she runs the family business, but each night she slips away to spin her tales. She
writes stories about young adults to relive her own childhood and to live vicariously
through her characters. Except her heroes and heroines lead far more interesting
lives — and they are always way hotter.

“You can’t take him early!” I shouted. “It’s not fair. You made the mistake. You fix
Slowly, Charles pivoted, eyes spearing mine. “And how is it possible for a human to
hear our conversation?”
My stomach knotted as terror gripped me. I’d just given myself away to a werewolf.
Worse, we’d been making out and breaking a law that carried the death penalty.
Dead girl walking. And since Zack was consorting with a shape-shifter, he wouldn’t
fare any better.
Zack squeezed my hand. “She’s human, but she reads minds.”
“A witch?” The scout tilted his head, narrowing his eyes. “Or she’s something else…
like a shape-shifter. Maybe you were really coming here to morph.” He took a step toward
me, but I couldn’t back up since I was already against the car.
Zack moved in front of me. “She’s human.”
Charles smiled. “If that’s the case, allow me to confirm it.”
“Suit yourself.” Zack moved aside and waved a hand toward me. He appeared
unruffled, but I sensed an undercurrent. I could also hear his heart pounding wildly. I’d bet
anything that Charles could hear it too. He’d know Zack was scared… and lying.
“Thank you. I will.” Charles reached out and brushed my hair away, exposing my
neck. He leaned in and inched toward me. As he inhaled deeply, the amusement faded from
his eyes and they darkened.
Zack doesn’t know, I told Charles silently, hoping if he thought I was to blame, it
would keep Zack safe and give him time to run. Two fledglings could never take down a
mature werewolf who was possibly hundreds of years older. He hasn’t learned about shapeshifters
or their scent. He thinks I’m human which is perfectly legal. Punish me, not him.
Charles returned his attention to his recruit. “Your girlfriend just informed me that
you’re ignorant of the fact that she’s a shape-shifter. And that she is the one who should be
punished, not you.”
Zack’s eyes grew wide as he stared at me. What the hell are you doing?
I opened my mouth to keep him from spilling the truth to Charles. Either way, I was
toast. At least this way, one of us might live.
Charles shot us both a crooked smile. “It’s unfortunate both of you will need to be
“Why? Zack didn’t know about me until you told him!” I hissed.
“If he’s too weak and stupid to detect a shifter, he has no value to the king. No point
in keeping him alive.”
I didn’t think. All I knew was that Zack’s life was in danger. Adrenaline roared
through my body like water through a fire hose and an instant later, I exploded into a grizzly
bear. The force of my morph spiraled Charles backward and he crashed into the thick tree
trunk. Before he had a chance to reorient himself, I was on top of him, my paws on his chest
and my teeth at his throat.
He morphed into a brown wolf and his ancient-strong jaws slashed my flank and
side. Despite catching him by surprise, I was no match for him. Pain burned through my
middle and my power waned.
