In Plain Sight, by Stephani Hecht, is the eighth book in her Wayne County Wolves series. Even though this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone without the reader being confused. The Wayne County Wolves Series is a spin off from her Lost Shifter Series and follows the band of various shifters that include everything from wolves, to rabbits, to hawks, snakes, ferrets, felines, etc. Having read all the books in this series, I am very familiar with the background information that is not given in this book.
This particular installment tells the story of an African Wild Dog and an Omega Wolf. Zaid and Kline could not be more opposite. Kline is an Omega Wolf that is considered to be disabled because his vision is so sensitive that he cannot go out in the light. Except, this “handicap” makes him invaluable in his ability to see things others cannot see. Zaid, the African Wild Dog, is one of the coalition’s scariest and best fighters who came to the group with a group of friends he has been helping to take care of. The bounty placed on Zaid’s head is by a snake shifter, Obsidian, who happens to be the same shifter that destroyed most of his Zaid’s breed of shifters.
This story was a little predictable in that it was obvious that Kline and Zaid would end up together during and after the mission and it was obvious that at some point during the mission one would save the other. This was a nice feel good, HEA story and if an M/M shifter story is something you enjoy, I recommend you read this and the other books in the series. They are quick reads, averaging only about 70-100 pages each and each installment comes out fairly quickly so you don’t have to wait a long time before the next one.
