Hunting Ground Paperback
Part of the Alpha and Omega series
Anna Latham didn't know how complicated life could get - until she became a werewolf. And now she's not just part of any pack, but under the direct supervision of Bran, leader of the North American werewolves. And her mate is his son Charles, the pack enforcer. With all the advances that have been made in forensics, the werewolves will not be able to hide their existence from humans much longer - and Bran wants their coming out party to be on his terms.
But his European counterparts don't see things the same way.
Anna and Charles are chosen to represent Bran at a key meeting.
But when a French werewolf, one of Bran's most vocal opponents, is found murdered, Charles's reputation shoots him to the top of the suspect list. And among the wolves, there is one penalty for breaking the law: death.
The killer must be found, or Charles will take the fall.

Review by Rhinoa
Werewolves Charles and Anna are back. They are still discovering their love and getting used to being a couple after Charles was alone for so long and Anna was abused in the past. Charles' father is the Marok and he wants the werewolves to come out to the media and general public. Charles has a feeling that is his father attends the meeting to discuss this something terrible will happen, so Charles and Anna go in his place.Charles was right to be cautious. There are certain European werewolves who do not wish to become public, one French werewolf in particular nicknamed The Beast, who also has set his sights on Anna (a coveted Omega werewolf). Helping at the meeting is one of the Fey who complicates matters by also being an old lover of Charles. Vampires are also rife in the city and are causing their own problems. Can Charles and Anna survive the conclave without things getting more complicated... Seems unlikely.A gripping story, I really like the two central characters and enjoyed meeting some of the European werewolves plus another Omega. I am glad to see Anna becoming more comfortable in her own skin and Charles getting used to sharing his life with her. I look forward to many more of their adventures in the future. Maybe one day they will have their own pups too.

The pace on this one never really picks up much, its familiar favored characters in a cool world but not as good as the previous iterations.
Review by lewispike
The second book in the Alpha and Omega series. This book runs fairly rapidly after the first one, and remains in parallel to the Mercy series.Anna is starting to come to grips with what being an Omega means ("You're an alpha, just a very zen one") and she and Charles travel to a conference with European werewolves about the Marrok's decision to take the werewolves public.There are a mix of obvious and less obvious villains and a plot that twists and turns suitably frequently to keep it working. There's more talking relationship stuff than sex, but there's a strong feeling of romance running through it still.The various sub-plots are satisfying. I can't help but wonder if it would be a slightly better fit if it wasn't running in parallel to the Mercy books, but it rarely feels forced, and the book is fun.
