Doctors Without Borders, Rachel Becker, M.D. survives Ebola and near death at the hands of Boker Haram terrorists. While recovering at her estranged father’s home, she meets Lev, a mysterious handsome Russian. Their chemistry is immediate—sizzling. Who is this sexy man? And why is her father upset by his visit?
Lev Volkov, born near Chernobyl, is a powerful mutant werewolf. Team Greywolf’s lethal weapon. Lev visits Dr. Howard Becker and meets his beautiful daughter. Rachel is Howard’s secret. A woman with the Stallo genetic marker, a human with desirable yet addictive blood. Forbidden. Nonetheless, his wolf fights to claim her.
When a rogue pack tries to kidnap Rachel, Lev will stop at nothing to kill them all. But the oath breaking werewolves make things much harder. Will he save Rachel - his mate - in time or will he lose everything?

Rachel’s father hasn’t been there throughout her life but when she contracts Ebola he returns. But with his return comes secrets, lots of secrets, and one hot Russian. Lev finds that Rachel appeals to both the wolf and the man. However a request from the man that saved his life puts Rachel out of reach. Can he corral the wolf and stay away or will the danger to Rachel push past his honor?
Chernobyl Werewolf is second in Eva Gordon’s Team Greywolf series. This story can be read as a standalone. I adored Lev. He was as alpha as they come but also sweet. He is somewhat affiliated with team Greywolf but the trust isn’t there, on either side. The changes made to his DNA make-up sets him apart, until Rachel he doesn’t really care. With Rachel he was able to be more and be seen as an individual, not a freak. And poor Rachel, she finds herself dropped into a world where rules were strict and consequences deadly. She is used to the illusion of equality but in this world she will never be equal. Can she accept her new life? Ms. Gordon painted Rachel’s struggle in a realistic manner even as she found herself drawn to Lev. This was my first time reading Ms. Gordon and it will not be the last. The story was well written and the characters were enjoyable. I loved getting to know Lev and Rachel and look forward to visiting this world again.
