Return of the Wolfe
by Nancy Fraser


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



Ever since she was a teenager, Sarah Tremayne wanted one thing and one thing only—to be a park ranger at Big Bear National Park in Bear Lake, Wisconsin. Her dream was always to work along side her ranger brother, Brent, and be the first brother-sister team in department history.

Matthew Wolfe is also a ranger and Brent’s best friend. He tolerated Sarah when she was a gangly teen following him around the park like a lost puppy. However, as Sarah blossomed so did his desire.

Just as they’re exploring their mutual attraction, a tragic accident pulls them apart.

Four years have passed and Matthew is returning to Big Bear as the man in charge. Will he and Sarah be able to mend their ragged fences and rediscover what they once had? Or, will Sarah’s pain and anger force her away from Big Bear, and Matt, forever?



The wolf was back!

The very thought nearly drove Sarah Tremayne to her knees. Although she'd known for some time this day was inevitable, still she couldn't help but wish she were anywhere else in the world other than Big Bear Park, Bear Lake, Wisconsin.

She stood off to the side, watching quietly as the rest of the staff assembled for morning report. Ann Marie waved and Sarah returned the friendly gesture half-heartedly. Dave offered a tentative smile and she recognized it as the moral support he meant it to be. At five minutes to eight they took their seats.

Cal Spencer came in first. Taking his place at the front of the office, he surveyed the group. The door opened again, and Sarah's gaze lifted.

Bob. She breathed a sigh of relief, grateful for even the smallest moment's reprieve.

“As you are all aware," Cal began, his deep voice echoing through the silent room, "today is the beginning of my last month as Head Ranger here at Big Bear. My main duties from this point on will be to advise and support my replacement. The Department of Parks has hand-picked Big Bear's new Head Ranger and, though I know it might be difficult for some, I expect each and every one of you to show him the same loyalty you've always shown me."

Cal's gaze met hers and he smiled knowingly. "I realize there are some of you who don't agree with the Department's choice but the decision has been made. Like it or not, we must all abide by it. As always, you are free to apply for a posting elsewhere. I suggest, if you have any reservations at all about working with the man, you seriously consider that option."

The door opened again and Sarah closed her eyes. There was no need to open them. She could feel his presence in the small, people-packed room. Her senses tingled and her heart beat a wild staccato rhythm inside her chest. The shuffling of feet told her Cal had relinquished his spot of authority to the man who would be his replacement.

"Good morning, ladies and gentlemen." He sounded the same. Strong. Commanding.

Unable to deny the lure of his deep, masculine voice, Sarah opened her eyes.





Nancy Fraser has created a fun jigsaw puzzle for her readers to play!!

Join in on the fun here:



This book was captivating, engaging, entertaining, and intriguing!!!

I was enjoying this book so much I didn’t even realize the time that had passed or that I had completely ignored the outside world and read it in just one sitting!!!

I have had the pleasure of hosting many of Nancy Fraser’s books on my blog, but sadly have rarely had the chance to review her work.  So, when this opportunity to read and review Nancy’s latest book, “Return of the Wolfe,” presented I jumped at the chance. 

This book starts right off with the return of Matthew Wolfe who had previously left the area four years earlier under some complicated dark clouds.  He not only has arrived back home, but has returned to the park ranger life at Big Bear National Park with one small detail – this time he is Sarah’s new boss.  Sarah has been dreading Matt’s return since she heard the rumors.  It’s one thing to return home, but to come back to the park, her park, and be her new supervisor – this seriously cannot be happening!!  With Matt’s return, all sorts of emotions and memories are stirring up – like the day that he left, the day her brother Brent died, the way Matt handled – or shall we say didn’t handle things.  Being a ranger at Big Bear was always Sarah’s dream so she just has to push through this.  But after having to work closely side by side with Matt again Sarah also starts to remember what she loved about him and all the good times they shared.  Will Sarah be able to forgive Matt?  Can they start back up where they left off?  Or has too much time past?  Or too much hurt and damage already been done that cannot be overlooked?  Should Matt have never come back to Big Bear?  No spoilers here!!  But you definitely will want to read this book and find out what happens!!

This book is a fun, quick, easy, enjoyable read that can be devoured in just a few short hours!!

I absolutely loved the main characters, Sarah and Matt.  They were likable, relatable, and realistic.  I loved the strong connection between them – I could feel it beating off the pages.  Even after four years had passed, they both could feel every emotion (both good and bad) come rushing back like it was just the other day.  These two had a deeper bond then even they realized.  These characters are easy to connect to and relate with.  It is clear from the get-go that both of these characters are hurt, damaged, and struggling with their own secrets and baggage and just need to open up to each other.

I really enjoyed that the author created flawed and damaged characters that really showcased her writing style and ability to push her characters to reach their full potential over their arc.

A strong character development journey to root for and enjoy watching it unfold!

I am a huge animal lover and outdoorsy girl, so I totally loved the Park Ranger theme!!  This story line was highly enjoyable, set up many clever plot points, and provided beautifully described background scenes of Big Bear National Park located at ever-so breathtaking Bear Lake, Wisconsin.

I really enjoyed the in-depth amount of research the author did while constructing this book that is strongly featured throughout the story.  That plus her love and passion of nature is clearly evident from page one.

This book has a creative story line that evenly flows, superb writing style, strongly developed characters, is steady paced, and completely keeps you fully entertained!!

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book is Book One of the Love of the Land Book Series.  This book can be read as a standalone.  There are significant implications that there will be a total of four books in this book series.  The author has noted that Book Two, “Vintage Secrets,” should be out in Summer 2021.  While Book Three, “Perfect Imperfect,” and Book Four, “Delayed Reaction,” are both set to be released in 2022.  I can’t wait to check out these next three books and discover what exciting, romantic adventures Nancy has devised!!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all contemporary romance readers will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

Nancy Fraser Jumping Across Romance Genres with Gleeful Abandon—is an Amazon Top 100 and Award-Winning author who can’t seem to decide which romance genre suits her best. So, she writes them all.

Like most authors, Nancy began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher’s pet which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it.

Published in multiple genres, Nancy currently writes for two publishers, and has recently thrown her hat into the self-publishing ring. She has published over thirty-five books in full-length, novella, and short format.

When not writing (which is almost never), Nancy dotes on her five wonderful grandchildren and looks forward to traveling and reading when time permits. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.
