A Touch of Flame (Flame #5) by Caris Roane
Synopsis: A powerful alpha wolf. A gifted witch. Each haunted by death. Can passion drive them to an everlasting love? Or will the enemy forge a hopeless chasm?
The Graveyard was not the place Mark Braden thought he’d breathe his last. He was sure he’d die in the pine forest of Savage Territory, chasing a drug-runner and getting hit by a spray of bullets.
Instead, he’d been ambushed…

About A TOUCH OF FLAME:
Braden should have died in the Graveyard, but the witch, Maeve, saved him. The call of his wolf is on him and he wants her. She can be his alpha-mate. But she has powers that can destroy him and a disrupted memory that holds the answers to his wife’s murder. Can he ever trust a woman who can kill with the power she streams from her bare hands?
Maeve has known only horror, death and destruction since her arrival in Five Bridges as a transformed alter witch. She goes to the Graveyard nightly to rescue those left for dead by the evil rampant in all five territories of her new world. She fears the power she possesses and the gaps in her memory frighten her more than anything else. But when she rescues Braden from an attack in the Graveyard, and she realizes she’s drawn to the handsome wolf, the nightmare really begins.
Review: The next installment in the flame series was good. Their interactions were good though sometimes with how easily he accepted her witchness was a little weak I think. If he believed that a witch killed his wife then I would have liked to see his dislike and distrust of them play more of a role in the conflict. There could have been more tension there with him having to come to terms with her being a witch. The plot was good and the conflict was strong, I just needed a stronger interaction between the characters and more of a conflict with what each of them was and her role in his past. There was great potential for high emotional tension when the truth of who killed his wife came out and they teased at it, but I would have loved for it to be drawn out more before he went to her rescue. I enjoyed it but I don’t think this was a favorite of mine in the Flame series.
