Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong

I felt like I missed something when I began reading this book, because I don't recall when and where in the Women of the Otherworld series that Carl and Elena got married and had children. This story starts as Elena and Carl set out on a chase to find a mutt werewolf named Reese who fell in with bad companions and got blamed for the murder of several humans. Reese panics, and gets on a plane to Alaska, and our favorite werewolf couple are forced to follow.

Coincidentally, there have been a series of killings in the wilderness of Alaska that Jeremy, pack Alpha, wants them to look into while they're up north, so they're able to kill two wolves with one stone, so to speak. There are also a couple of ex-pack members living nearby, and Carl wants to meet with them, as they were close when he was younger.

Catching the mutt werewolf turns out to be the least complicated thing that the two must accomplish, and the situation gets far more dangerous as they encounter not only rogue werewolves, but mysterious powerful shapeshifters who have remained mostly undetected in the last American frontier for a long, long time.

Lots of good action and strong character development for Carl and Elena in this one, and things look to get even more interesting for them as the series continues.
