After a series of murders is discovered along the trail of the Shifter Underground, wolf soldier Jensen Tate is assigned to find and protect a missing stray. But Lia Crawford doesn't seem to want his protection. When she eludes his watch and returns with mysterious injuries, Tate knows she's hiding something. To discover her secrets, Tate will have to win her trust…and get closer to the woman he thinks may be his mate.
Lia has reasons to keep her distance. The killer is haunting her steps, determined to claim her. He will come after them both if he sees how drawn she is to Tate, though it becomes increasingly difficult to deny her attraction to him. Protecting Tate is vital—but will her deception cost her his love?
I wished for a sequel after Tempting the Enemy with Pale and Jade. Now the second story in the Resurrection series is about Tate, Pale’s brother. As the Alpha’s brother it is his job to protect the other shifters even if they don’t want it. Lia Crawford definitely does not want it but she won’t tell Tate why. Tate does not know if he wants to kiss her or throttle her half the time. This constant battle of wills makes the journey to the safe house interesting and dangerous because something is hunting Lia. Tate hates that she is so terrified of whatever is out there but won’t trust him to protector her.
I loved both characters but I think I would have a constant need to hit them if I ever met them. I don’t know which one is more stubborn which make them perfect for each other. They both have issues they need to get over but they can’t until they realize they need each other to do it.
Now I hope there will be a third story. Who will be the main character I don’t know but I can hope for Mina and Aaron or maybe the feisty Betha. Favorite Quote:

“That’s not my name.” She kept walking.

He glared at the back of her pack. “How about sweetheart, then?”
“How about you kiss my ass?”
