Nicklaus Maslov left Stone Creek, Montana, in his rear–view mirror three years ago and never planned to go back. His pack’s ways are antiquated, and the girl he loves will never be his. But when his father, the pack’s alpha, sends him an urgent message, he can’t deny the protective instinct drawing him back to his hometown, or the lure of the one that got away.
Petra Stevens has had her heart stomped on once and vows it will never happen again. When her former lover and packmate returns to Stone Creek, all the rage and hurt she felt when he’d left comes bubbling to the surface…along with other feelings she can’t control. If she can just avoid him while he’s in town, things will be fine. But fate has other plans…

“Home For The Howlidays” Montana Wolves #5 is by author Chloe Cole
My Rating: 3.75 Stars
“Home For The Howlidays” is book five in the Montana Wolves series. This was my first book by Chloe Cole. Although I didn’t read any of the prior books in the series, I had no trouble enjoying it. I would like to read the others as well.
This romance falls under the trope of second chance love.
Nicklaus Maslov and Petra Stevens are both wolf shifters.
Three years ago Klaus left his hometown in Stone Creek, Montana and had no intention of ever returning. Klaus not only left his home but the only woman he ever loved as well. Unfortunately for Klaus, because he was the son of the pack alpha and next in line to take over leading the pack, Klaus was expected to marry within his class. A bride would be chosen for him. That would mean he couldn’t marry the woman he wanted, Petra. So Klaus thought it was best if he left town rather than stay and marry someone else. It would kill him to hurt Petra that way. Of course he hurt her anyway by leaving. Klaus leaving abruptly tore her heart apart.
Three years later, Petra is still hurt and angry over Klaus’ abandonment. And when he returns to town, all those feelings of anger, hurt and sorrow become too strong to bare. Nothing has changed since Klaus left and unless he stands up to his father, nothing will.
Can Klaus and Petra finally have their happily ever after?
These two were a strong couple with more than just strong chemistry between them. I liked experiencing the different emotions that Klaus and Petra brought to the story. I admit I was a bit worried about how things would turn out. There was a lot of hurt and anger to get through. But they did, thankfully.
“Home For The Howlidays” was a quick, sweet story of second chance love and standing up for what you know is right. Although this is a holiday romance, I didn’t get that holiday feel but I liked the story anyway.
