"Born To Be Wild" [The Others Series, Book 15] by Christine Warren
My Book Summary : Josie is the local veterinarian in her home town. She is also a bit of a loner but she can't get enough of the animals she helps out. However, when Sheriff Eli Pace barges one night she's closing up, with a wolf-shifter her world as she knew it changes in an instant.
Eli, a lion-shifter, was just planning to roam the woods after work until he found the shifter all banged up. Since they live in a small town in Oregon he new something bad would happen to the shifter if she wasn't checked out right away, so even though Josie only deals with pets, she's going to have to put her knowledge to good work to find out what's wrong. Since something is definitely wrong when a shifter isn't able to transform back into it's other form.
Now while Josie tries to find a cure, Eli is on the search to see who could have done this before another shifter gets hurt. But as they work together, trying to concentrate on the case and not each other seems to be getting harder by the minute ...
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Considering I hadn't previously read any other books from this series, I really got drawn into this novel. Especially since I really like shifter novels, plus this one was different in that the rest of the "human" population were aware of shifters, and that is one of the main reasons that the wolf was having a problem (people who didn't like any shifters were out to get them). Then to top off the mystery part of the book, the romance between Josie and Eli was HOT and just a great read to find out what would happen between them.

"And you can't touch them if they rip your arms off," he shot back. "I want you to promise me that you won't go in that cage on your own even if you think they've got them both sedated."
"If they're unconscious, I don't see what they could do to hurt me."
She gave in with very little grace. "Fine. I won't go in the cage unless I have someone else around."
"Unless I'm around."
