Seven shifter clans call the Montana mountains home.

But a new evil will stop at nothing to tear their world apart.

For centuries, the shifters that roam Big Sky country have honored a pact to keep the peace. Even bad-boy rancher Wes Calhoun, former leader of a renegade pack, has given up his violent ways and sworn loyalty to the Grey Wolves. But his dark past keeps catching up with him…

Human rancher Naomi Evans cares only about saving the ranch that was her father’s legacy. Until a clash with Wes opens up a whole new world—a supernatural world on the verge of war—and Naomi, her ranch, and the sexy cowboy wolf stealing her heart are smack dab in the middle of it.


Cowboy Wolf Trouble is book one in the Seven Range Shifters series by Katie Ballenger.

This new series is off to a great start with a story full of thrills, suspense, action, betrayal, heartache, and an emotionally gripping romance. It’s well written and has a nice premises. I liked the cowboy and shifter aspects.

Wes and Naomi are strong, capable, and captivating. They fit each other and brought out new aspects of each other. Their romance is a roller coaster ride of charismatic attraction, turbulent emotions, red-hot passion and forbidden relationship, which keeps the HEA in suspense until the very end.

The plot is fast-paced and full of thrilling suspense with the no humans allowed, malicious shifters, and mistaken identity. It did take me a little while to get into the story, but the more I read the more I enjoyed and fell into the storyline. I will say it was nice to have the authors Executioner Underground, her other series, make an appearance. It’s ok if you haven’t read that series yet, but readers may want to understand the EU better. For fans it was fun to see the EU pop into the story.

The author has created an interesting world with sexy cowboy shifters and I can’t wait to read on.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

**Note: I did receive a complementary copy via NetGalley, but I picked up this book from my library instead of reading the ARC.
