This December, Paige Tyler releases the third in her action-packed SWAT series, IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES. To celebrate the release of IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES, Paige Tyler stopped by to tell us about one of her favorite fun loving heroes in pop culture and to share an excerpt showcasing her own hero’s fun loving side!
Everyone loves reading about alpha males, right? But of course, you can’t have a single dimensional character that’s just hardcore alpha all the time. It comes off as flat or just plain irritating. Most of the time you want to let your alpha have a lighter side, just to keep things interesting. One of my favorite fun loving heroes from popular culture is Peter Quill!
Chris Pratt gives heart, soul, humor, and muscle to everyone’s favorite Guardian of the Galaxy character. He handles the physical action sequences with ease while still looking like he might be getting through this stuff on pure luck. He’s willing to laugh at himself (remember that scene of him dancing at the end of the movie?) while risking his life. Like all alphas, he has that one particular something about him that draws other people to him and gets them to risk their lives for him. He also can’t help but attract the women at the same time, though he never comes off as a player (or an alpha-hole as I like to call them).

He opened his mouth to order her to drop the MP5 she had aimed at him, but nothing would come out. It was like she'd robbed him of the ability to speak. Shooting her wasn't an option, though. And the idea of arresting her didn't make him feel any better.
There's a new gang of criminals in town who are organized and ruthless in the extreme. When Eric Becker, along with the rest of the Dallas SWAT team, ends up in the middle of a shootout, he immediately senses werewolves-a lot of them. Turns out, the new bad guys are a pack of wolf shifters.
In a spray of gunfire, Becker comes face-to-face with the most gorgeous woman he's ever seen. Becker does the logical thing. He hides her and leaves the scene with the rest of his team.
Jayna Winston has no idea why that SWAT guy helped her, but she's glad he did. Ever since she and her pack mates got mixed up with those Eastern European mobsters, everything had pretty much fallen apart.
So what's a street-savvy thief like Jayna going to do with a hot alpha-male wolf who's a police officer?
IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES opened with two hard hitting scenes; the first featured the traumatic event that induced Jayna’s change, and the second was a full blown SWAT maneuver, but with werewolves! Paige Tyler dropped a few more bread crumbs about her supes, another couple got a sexy HEA, and this installment’s villains gave the boys in blue a run for their money.
The author has been taunting readers with snippets of shifter lore since book 1, and finally after three volumes, I’m pleased to report that sufficient dets have been divulged for me to go all-in. Now, don’t go getting too excited because Tyler really doesn’t give us much except betas and omegas, but from a werewolf fangirl’s perspective that’s enough.
I enjoyed the plot of this installment; all of the stories have been adrenaline fiends, however this one was especially cranked up on account of the antagonists being wolves too. SWAT had yet to encounter a situation in which they were evenly matched with the baddies, so that was cool, and there was also an undercover operation that gave the action an extra edge.
Cooper got suckered into helping yet another team mate hook-up with their The One. No, not really. He’s simply a stand-up guy, and I can’t WAIT to read his story! Becker was just as alpha as Gage & Xander, but in his own unique way. Jayna was a brilliant heroine, and I absolutely loved her pack mates: Megan, Moe, Joseph & Chris.
IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES is proof that good things come in threes.
