    1. 3.5 StarsDaniel Kane:The Heat by Heather Killough-Walden is book one in her The Big Bad Wolf series. I have had this series on my kobo for ages and finally decided to give it a go. While this first book was not at all what I expected, it was still a very enjoyable read and I am glad that I finally got around to reading it. The world that Ms. Killough-Walden has created is a very imaginative and unique one. It is a world full of werewolves, vampires, black magic and other dark surprises. Initiall [...]

    2. "During the course of her job, she'd been trained to teach women that a man's invading penis was not something to fight against to the point of coming to real harm. It was not worth dying for. It was taught that the important thing was to live through a rape- and deal with the rest later."When I read this paragraph, I read it again and another three times to make sure my brain comprehended this correctly. And at last it did and after that comprehension came anger that Ms.Walden can approach rape [...]

    3. I'm trying not to be one of those people (especially publishing people) who says they never read self-pub'd books because they're all bad. So I've been browsing and picking up some of the 99 cent offerings that seem to have promising reviews and interesting story premises. Unfortunately, this foray into self-pub didn't work out for me. During my years of publishing, I've trained myself to turn off the editorial side of my brain when I read for pleasure (otherwise it wouldn't be a pleasure to re [...]

    4. The story was interesting but repetetive. The writing was unpolished. The romance was a little disturbing but mostly sweet and rewarding. There was plenty of good writing to balance the unpolished and plenty of heart to balance the disturbing bits.Story: The world building was cool, but I had a few problems with it. The world-building detail that bugged me the most was this mark/tatoo thing a female gets when a werewolf claims her as an intended mate. The mark goes away when they actually become [...]

    5. **** 3.5 to 4 stars **** BUT CLOSER TO 4!!!!!I can never get enough of PNR, doesn't matter if it's vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fae's all good, with vamps and werewolves being my absolute favorites!The Heat was of course, right up my alley and I really, really, liked it. The combination of alpha's vying for their mate and right to reproduce in an increasingly threatened species was both riveting and hot!Lily has returned to Baton Rouge after being gone for 10 years. Lily is a dormant, a [...]

    6. I really like Walden's storytelling ability. Although her werewolves weren't nearly as believable as others I have read, she can tell a story that grabs you and doesn't let you go. Her style is slightly dark, almost cynical in nature - sometimes more than I like (although admittedly, I'm a lightweight.) Her characters are real and don't always behave as they should, the "good" guys have faults, the bad guys have reasons and Walden always succeeds in making both sympathetic. I was slightly offend [...]

    7. When I first read the description for "The Heat" I thought that is was a paranormal romance. However, after reading the book, I must say that it is much, much more. "The Heat" is a thriller, a mystery blended very well with romance.10 years ago, Lily St. Clare had the hots for her best friend's brother, Daniel Kane. However, he never gave her the time of day. Lily moved away and moved on with her life. However, after Katrina, she decides to move back to her home town of Baton Rouge to work at th [...]

    8. Coming home to Louisiana, Lily St. Claire expected to spend time with her best friend and reconnect with others from her past, she was not prepared to see former crush Officer Daniel Kane so soon though. Daniel is everything she had ever dreamed of in a man, but he had never shown any interest as well as a reputation as the town playboy kept her crush at bay.Daniel promised his sister once he would stay away from Lily, but now that she is back he wants to claim his mate. He has to figure out awa [...]

    10. After reading The Vampire King and having some questions about a few of the characters that popped up, I decided, since I liked that book so much, to try the Big Bad Wolf series by Killough-Walden. I must say after reading the first book in the series I'm impressed and excited. I usually skip wolf series altogether because they've never really kept my interest in the past but this one certainly grabbed it from the beginning.Lily St Claire is back after ten years. She's visiting with her best fri [...]

    11. This book had everything i love!! Feisty chick, hot guy & plenty of action (and no i'm not talking about sex scenes although there is a rather good one in here lol). The action & suspense is almost non-stop & i couldn't put my Kindle down til i had finished! Have downloaded the rest in this series ready to get stuck into:o)

    12. Book Description:The women of Baton Rouge have often dreamed about Daniel Kane; his blue-black hair, sapphire-blue eyes and the muscular body that has so deliciously held many of them captive in bed. Lily St. Claire has dreamed of him too, but her dreams are different: Daniel approaches her in human form before there is a blinding flash of light. In the next instant, a large black wolf stands in his place, watching her through Daniel’s piercing blue eyes. Having returned to Louisiana after a d [...]

    13. Not sure I can finish this book. I'm more than halfway through and while the narrator insists that the main character is "strong" she has been been nothing but the opposite so far. Describing a character as such when their actions in the book don't show this is not sufficient. I think my definition of a strong woman (or man) is very different than the author's. My definition includes someone who fights back when they or their loved ones are hurt or threatened, not complying with every request ma [...]

    14. this book was a complete suprise to me. I love suprises! What a great story and a different twist on the werewolf world. Magic!

    15. Heather Killough-Walden’s Big Bad Wolf series has been near the top of my to read pile for some time and after finishing ‘The Heat’ I am asking myself why I left it so long! This book has made me seriously reassess my usual preference for vampires as this author’s werewolves are not only smart and uber dominant, but have an earthy get down and dirty sex appeal.In ‘The Heat’, 28 year old Lily St Claire returns to her childhood town of Baton Rouge, which she left after high school, to [...]

    16. I read this series before I had . I do enjoy them. This isn't the first time I've reread them and I doubt it will be the last.

    17. Lily St.Claire has always wanted her best friends brotherDaniel. But it seems that he doesn't feel the same since he's been with all of her friends but her. After returning back home to Baton Rouge 10 years later she reunites with Daniel and he's made a complete 180. But what Lily doesn't know is that Daniel's a werewolf and she is his attended mate. The only reason he didn't claim her 10 years ago was because he promised his sister that he would leave her alone. But know that Lily's all grown u [...]

    18. I thought this was a fun little book. It wasn't perfect but it kept my attention to the end and it was entertaining. I personally don't think I would have been quite as accepting as Lily was of being repeatedly kidnapped for nefarious purposes but she managed pretty well and came out of it okay in the end.I really liked the secondary characters, especially Malcolm Cole and James Valentine. I liked that Cole wasn't a clear-cut bad guy. I liked that Valentine had his reasons for doing what he did. [...]

    19. The Heat, is a PNR mixed with thriller and suspense yet all three are erotically potent when muddled up! What can I say Heather Killough-Walden left me panting… and flushed… leaving me drained with a big smile on my face! I have never tried this genre before, but I loved… loved everything about this book! The author is a brilliant storyteller who kept me enthralled and spellbound to this book like no other author had! Ever! Heather Killough- Walden’s writing is somewhat dark, almost disp [...]

    20. Lily St. Claire is a simple Southern girl who has no idea what she is in for when she decides to move back to her home town in Louisiana after a decade of being away. But between the two very different alpha werewolves who instantly begin fighting to claim her as their mate and the serial killer who has her in his sights, she's about to find out.I gave this story 3 stars but it was barely three, more like 2.5. The heroine bugged me. The author spent the entire book talking about her stubbornness [...]

    21. meh. the 2nd book in this series - 'the strip' - is SO much better. better characters, fo'shizzle. could not stand lily (the heroine in this book) but when she shows up in the 2nd books, she's slihgtly more likable. slightlye editing in both is the pits, though. typos, spelling errors, amateur hour.i'll continue with the series, as long as the price remains low. if you're one of those people who gauge their level of enjoyment against how much they had to fork out, then get this book. definitely [...]

    22. I liked the idea of a paranormal werewolf romance and for $1 on , I figured I couldn't go wrong. The story was interesting. I liked the werewolves in this tale and I liked Lily. The writing was a bit redundant in places and could have used some editing to tighten it up but that is to be expected of a self-published work. I DID have a bit of a problem with Lily being kidnapped on 3 separate occasions by 3 separate people- I mean, seriously, how much kidnapping can one small storyline take??

    23. This is the fourth book I've bought for $.99 cents from Heather K.- Walden, I was little put off when I read so many negative reviews, but I figured for the price I didn't have much to lose. Again I got sucked in with in the first few pages, I guess I just enjoy her style of writing, I like her character's development, I thought it was a good beginning to the series, so yes, to me it was worth the $.99 cents.

    24. This book was great! I wish we had .5 stars so I could rate these books exactly how I want to I would have rated it a 4.5, but I usually only rate a book a 5 when I feel like I can't put the book down. I didn't really have that feeling with this book, but I still enjoyed it a lot. I loved the characters & the storyline; however some parts were predictable. I would definitely recommend this book to other people.

    25. I bought this book for a dollar and I can't believe how good it was. We were just talking about book prices and I said if it was selling for under 2.99 it probably wasn't any good. Well shame on me, what a bargain.I am looking forward to the next one, and recommend to all PNR lovers, and lovers of a good bargain lol!

    26. very wordy i know its a book so there will be some words but it just seemed like a lot of extra words too express something simple it was only a dollar so i cant complain may even check out the next one :)

    27. This first novel in the Big Bad Wolf series had me hooked quite quickly. I enjoyed the back story and it added to the intrique of the entire book. I liked this book so much, I immediately bought the next two books in the seris. Well done. :)
