Nika, the pack’s newest scout, wants nothing more than to please his Alpha. When he discovers a beautiful, and very sick, stranger in the woods outside Los Lobos, he finds himself torn between his duty and his hormones. The stranger carries a deadly wolf virus—one that hasn’t been seen in the Black Hills in ages.

Kimi, a Lakota Sioux, is dying. She’s transported herself forward in time, hoping to find the cure to the illness that’s stricken her tribe. Her only chance for survival is to trust Nika, even if she’s not used to having help.

To find the cure and save the pack, Nika and Kimi must travel to a time long ago—before the Lakota populated the Black Hills—a time filled with dangers neither can imagine. Their growing attraction may save them, or kill them both.


The Wolf and the Butterfly by author Kerry Adrienne is the 19th book in the Black Hill Wolves series. This is a multi authored series. This book can be read as a stand alone. The story is strong enough for that. Out of all the ones I have read thus far, this particular book is not my favorite. It is what I would call okay. There is little character connection for me. That to me makes or breaks a true romance. This one is lack luster in that department. The story idea is good. It is also rushed and slightly confusing too.
Characters the main ones are Nika he is a scout, young, agile, and empathic. I loved the idea of having a wolf with mental powers too. I wish that had been explored more too. He is also strong enough to transform himself from wolf to man at will.
Kimi when we meet her she is dying. She is confused and scared. She wants to protect Nika from the plague she is carrying. I did love that she defends Nika when the other wolves come and get on his case for breaking protocol.
There is time travel in this book, and a search for a cure. That was extremely fun and interesting to read about. Had there been more romance I would have loved this one. As it is, this one is okay, worth reading just not an A plus for me.
