Unacceptable Risk (Hidden Wolves #1) by Kaje Harper #LGBT #Review

Tracy reviews ‘Unacceptable Risk’ (Hidden Wolves #1) by Kaje Harper. Published by MLR Press October 14th 2011, 332 page

This book was provided free of charge for an honest review by the publisher. 😉

Why I read this book: I love shifter books, this one sounded different. I haven’t read anything by this author before.



Simon Conley was born a werewolf, making him one of a tiny minority in a sea of vanilla humans. The safety of the pack lies in absolute secrecy, sometimes violently enforced. In a species where pack-members are born and not made, being gay is considered a perversion. So when Simon falls in love with a human man, he’s twice damned. Even his Alpha’s grudging tolerance may not be enough to shield him from the hatred of the other top wolves. Then his lover Paul stumbles across pack secrets Simon was sworn to keep, and if the pack finds out, they may both end up dead.

Paul is a Vet in a small town, he overworks himself, doesn’t look after himself properly and is very lonely. While driving home late one night in snowy conditions he sees a lump in the road, he swerves to miss it. He find a very large dog badly hurt, possibly dying.
Simon is a werewolf, he has been badly beaten by members of his own pack who think he should die because he is gay.
This book starts off slow and steady, a Vet and an injured dog/wolf. Paul is not gay but he starts to have feelings for the dogs owner Simon. They start off as friends till they become lovers, but Simon has a big secret…..
What I liked most about this book was the fact that there was no insta love, mate aren’t obvious and to mate is a rather complicated process. Thats what makes this book very different from other shifter book. The fact that there is a lot of unrest within the pack, a lot down to fact that Simon was Gay made the book fascinating. I wanted to read more, I had to know what happened next. Truthfully I didn’t want to put the book down until I finished. I now need to read the next book in this series…..
Overall and interesting book with a different take on shifters, which I loved….

Kaje HarperI live in Minnesota (where the two seasons are snow removal and road-repair, and the mosquito is the state bird, and where sometimes in winter it is so beautiful you can’t breathe for gazing at it). I have been writing for longer than I care to admit, and currently am focused on writing m/m romance.

My first professionally published book, Life Lessons, came out from MLR Press in May 2011. This was the first thing I had submitted anywhere and I was thrilled when it was accepted. There are now three free short stories, and three more novels in the Life Lessons series.

My free Smashwords book was the first thing that actually released – I put it up a month before Life Lessons just for the fun of getting it out there. Lies and Consequences began as a reaction to the November 2010 election. It looked like the repeal of DADT might be derailed by the political shift and I put the insanity of that law into the book. Then as I was finishing the first draft in mid-December the repeal passed. Which was great, but prompted a rewrite to a lighter and more action/romance book.

And now I have other work in ebooks and print, both free and professionally published. This writing thing is addictive. So read, comment, tell me what you like and what you don’t, and help me make the upcoming books even better.
