The Longing of Lone Wolves (Fae Guardians #1) by Lana Pecherczyk
Rush is a Fae Guardian, a wolf-shifter whose enhanced abilities have made him a ruthless protector of Elphyne. His job is to protect the realm from the human enemy, and to ensure the sins of the past never come to pass again lest magic die forever. But one night of weakness resulted in a curse worse than death – exile. Now he spends his lonely time longing to be part of the living, once again protecting them from monsters… until one mysteriously washes up on the shores of his lake.
Clarke is human. She’s beautiful, feisty, and fierce. She’s also the only person who can see him, speak to him, and touch him.
If he hands her over to the Order, she’s his ticket to having his curse removed. Unable to resist the opportunity, he tricks her into a bargain of obedience, never once suspecting his world is about to be turned upside down. The more he learns about this human enemy, the more he realizes she’s not the monster he’s been trained to believe. In fact, she’s capable of inciting passion he’d never dreamed possible again. But Clarke has a message from the past… sins are already repeating. This time, if they don’t stop the coming evil, it won’t just be magic that dies. It will be everything.
The Witcher meets Beauty and the Beast in this gripping, new epic fantasy featuring steamy shifter romance, a splash of time travel, monster hunting, a band of brothers, fated mates, growly fae protectors and their strong willed women from our time. If you love your books full of page turning action, romantic tension, and world building you can get lost in, then this book is for you.

Lana Pecherczyk is a new to me author and I absolutely loved the book. First of all, the cover is HOT. The blurb? Fae as wolf shifters? Sign me up!!
Rush is a Fae Guardian, a wolf-shifter who has been cursed. You need to wait a while to find out what really happened with him, because as soon as Clarke literally falls into his life, he needs to go to the Order to see if his curse can be lifted. Only, he didn’t expect her to be his mate. He didn’t expect this human to be something more. Protecting her becomes his new goal, even if he knows his at the end of his life magic.
The only thing that makes me sad and if you know about me is that I prefer books written in first person, but I know sometimes I am missing out really great books and this would have been one of them.
I will continue the story and by the way, this is just the beginning, but it’s a standalone for Rush and Clarke’s story, and the main plot will continue along the series.
