Trying to track this one down... Here is what I know.

  • Paranormal romance book, featuring werewolves as good guys instead of evil monsters

  • Heroine is a werewolf, but not a tough gal

  • Heroine has a tough guy following her around trying to protect her; she makes life difficult for him. Sometimes this is by accident

  • Tough guy is a werewolf too

  • It's a romance, so everyone is super-pretty or studly handsome

  • A bit more ... prim than your typical romance. Werewolves are bonded for life with their first werewolf lover, so are often quite chaste

And one line which I (think I) remember; danger is near, heroine takes a look at herself and ruefully says something very like: "I don't know what this body is made for, but fighting ain't it"


Is it possible the Mercy series by Patricia Briggs? She fits the bill, and so does Adam (her protector) https://www.goodreads.com/series/40932-mercy-thompson

  • Can you explain why you feel this answer is correct? – FuzzyBoots Oct 11 '17 at 16:05
  • It fits every aspect of the bill, including mercy's personality. She was raised by werewolves but is meeker. – Hillary Jindra Oct 11 '17 at 16:08

    :) Then add that to your answer. Preferably, also link to some place that has it and/or add a summary. – FuzzyBoots Oct 11 '17 at 16:10
  • Appreciate the answer! Isn't Mercy, because I followed the links and these aren't books I've read, but they do look interesting. – akaioi Oct 11 '17 at 16:36
