Looking for a "paranormal romance" featuring Alaska as the backdrop? Well, look no further. Vivian Arend's "Granite Lake Wolves" series has what you need.

USA Today reviews Arend's latest installment in her romantic "shifters" series, entitled "Wolfline." The novel, set in the "picturesque harbor-side town of Haines, Alaska," follows the Granite Lake Wolf pack, a group of humna-wolf shifters. Arend's main protagonist, Jared, is a particularly "rough around the edges," an Alaskan whose behavior often lands him in trouble.

USA Today's reviewer Lea Franczak writes of Jared:

Initially I had the impression that our hero was a somewhat lackadaisical and certainly hedonistic wolf-shifter with little in the manner of motivation. Unmated Jared enjoys the company of ladies, and his prowess in the seduction department gets him into deep weeds as the previous few nights' shenanigans with the sister of a couple of local fishmongers results in a chase through (Haines). He seeks refuge aboard the Arctic Wolf and highjinks ensue when Jared finds himself stranded and crewing when the ship leaves port.

Yup. Sounds like a typical night in Haines.
