S.E.X. Review~ Home is Where You Are by Alex Jane

By the winter of 1870, Caleb Fletcher has carved out a sheltered existence for himself in a simple cabin, outside a small town in the backwaters of Nebraska, resigned to living out his days as a solitary wolf. But his quiet life is interrupted when another werewolf lands on his doorstep on the eve of a snowstorm, brutalized almost beyond repair, with nowhere else to turn. 

When Caleb reluctantly welcomes Jacob into his cabin, and eventually his bed, it forces him to face up to the traumas he’s been running from; the shame that made him leave his pack behind, and the horrors of war he endured. 

As the weeks pass, it seems that Jacob’s arrival might not be the coincidence it first appeared. Jacob has an agenda. One that involves Caleb. And if Caleb agrees to it – if he can let go of his past and his prejudices – it will change Caleb’s whole world. Maybe even for the better. 

Without a mate – a family, a pack – a wolf has no home. 

But what if home finds you?

A post-Civil War Midwest tale, that grabbed my attention~ Home is Where You Are was beautifully written, keeping me captivated and enthralled. New author (to me) Alex Jane delivered an original and creative twist to werewolves and alphas during the late 1800’s.

Caleb and Jacob immediately fascinated me with their mannerisms, fight for right, and care for each other and family. The two alphas held a gentle tone in a rough and sometimes unforgiven time period that with Alex Jane’s careful hand remained authentic to the era and nuances.

The first book in the Alphas’ Homestead series was fast-paced in a delightful way, engaging the reader and drawing on emotion. Secondary characters enhanced the story and flowed as an integral part of the story and simply not misplaced.

I adored Caleb’s sister and want more of her~ the strength of family and her foresight to know what’s best. Additionally, John (the sheriff) and Mal (deputy) gave depth and understanding of the ruggedness of the expanding Midwest.

Small snippet at the end of book one divulged who the next stories pertain to and I look forward to reading them all.

Home is Where You Are was not necessarily a tale of sex and lust but a manifestations of sensuality and affection and of coming together for mutual satisfaction and love~ no matter what trying times confront you.
