Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs
Charles and Anna will discover that a dangerous Fae is on the loose, replacing human children with Simulacrums. The Fae's cold war with humanity is about to heat up - and Charles and Anna are in the crossfire.
Anna and Charles are fast becoming my favourite couple in this universe. I like Anna's down-to-earth-ness and how Charles is her opposite in so many ways but her total equal at the same time.
It's sort of hard to talk about the world building and character building details in a book that's already well into a series since the world has been built in previous books and also the Mercy Thompson series. I can however talk about the character growth in this book, Anna has decided she wants kids with Charles but female werewolves aren't capable of carrying a child to term because of the changes so Charles isn't very amenable to the idea.
Through the course of the book, Anna gets to see how Charles is with kids and this actually seems to firm her idea and make her more determined to convince Charles.
I will actually buy and read an Alpha & Omega book over a Mercy book now, and I suggest you go do the same if you haven't already read this series.
