Hunter Avenged

Forgotten Brotherhood Book 6

by N.J. Walters

Genre: Paranormal Romance

It’s taken Viking hunter Sven Knutson six frustrating months to find her. To track down the angel responsible for compromising the Forgotten Brotherhood and waking the drakon. She may be clever. Resourceful. But no one ever gets away from Sven. Ever.

All Rivka longed for as an angel was a chance to serve on Earth and help humans. Instead, it all went impossibly, horribly wrong, and she still doesn’t understand how or even
why. All she knows is that she’s on the run—not only from Heaven’s dangerous elite guard, but also from the Brotherhood, who want answers.

She might just have to trust the immortal Viking whose icy blue eyes make her feel almost wickedly human. Because someone wants Rivka dead and the Brotherhood eliminated. Someone powerful enough to take on the most dangerous assassins who have ever lived. Someone who could unleash the fury of both Heaven and Hell…and Rivka is the key.

Defiant Mate: Mystic River Shifters Book 1

 Great start to a new series!

This is such a wonderful starting story for a new series and group of shifters. Asher and Nicole are so good together. I truly enjoyed the references to both the Wayward Mates and Tangled Vines series. I’ve noticed in other stories that more than one heroine has been a writer. Lovely to see!

The Reluctant Retiree

The sound of a cord snapping abruptly ends her climb, leaving her stranded as an arctic storm bears down. Can Asher find his mate before she freezes to death?

Nicole is done with men. Her husband left her for a thinner and younger model and never looked back. She has worked hard to be an independent, successful woman without a man. Although she is still a curvy woman, she is healthy and loves outdoor activities. Climbing Pyramid Mountain is the next adventure on her list of things she wants to accomplish. So why does she feel drawn to Asher, the know-it-all US Forest Ranger telling her she can’t make her climb?

Asher Wells has found his mate, at last. He should have known that his spirited, fated mate wasn’t going to listen to reason. With an arctic storm bearing down on them, she was hell-bent on Pyramid Mountain for her first solo, technical climb. Luckily he managed to get an emergency beacon into her pack. Unfortunately, something has happened and Nicole has activated it.

Come visit Mystic River, Alaska. A small, remote town that has always been a safe community for different types of shifters. These shifters are gorgeous, possessive, and finding their fated mate is high on their priority list.

Take a walk on the wild side with these curvy heroines, their sexy fated mates, and scenes that sizzle.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EVENT PLANNER AND THE FOREST RANGER
Reviewed in the United States on January 13, 2023
The story is the first in the new Mystic River Shifters. It will have a great cast of characters, including humans and shifters. The story will involve Nicole Sullivan, a human, and alpha wolf shifter, Asher Wells.

Nicole Sullivan has gone through a divorce, moved to Seattle, Washington, and opened a satellite office for event planning with her boss, Judith in San Francisco. Nicole has taken up many adventurous hobbies including kayaking and training for mountain climbing. She decides to travel to Kodiak Island, Alaska, to look at it as a destination for future events. While there, she plans to do a solo climb up Pyramid Mountain.

Asher Wells and his alpha father do not get along. Asher left his pack in Mystic River and went into the Navy, becoming a SEAL. Now, he is back and head of the U.S. Forest Rangers in Alaska. What a surprise to meet Nicole, and realize she is his fated mate, a human, and stubborn.

The story’s plot will have Asher and Nicole meeting, butting heads, having lunch, and then to his cabin where the night is spent in pleasure. Asher is hoping to convince Nicole to forego a solo climb, wait until he can join her, and keep her in his bed. Nicole needs to do this climb for herself, which she believes she can do. She isn’t figuring out the volatile weather that will strike while she is on the mountain. That will take this story into life-and-death danger. Asher is determined to save his mate, even if it is from herself.

Asher: Do you read a lot of romance novels?
Nicole: There’s nothing wrong with that.
Asher: Not at all. Just trying to learn about you, and what makes you tick; what turns you on.
Nicole: You. You turn me on.
Asher: Ditto. Careful, Nicole. You don’t put yourself down or deflect how I feel.
Nicole: Is that a rule?
Asher: Yes, and there will be more of them. You’d best accept that you’re going to follow them and when you don’t, there’ll be consequences.
Nicole: What kind of consequences?
Asher: I found a bit of discipline can do a lot to keep a relationship on the right track.
Nicole: What kind of discipline?
Asher: A firm male hand applied to a shapely feminine backside can go a long way to curbing bad behavior and not allowing things to build up.
Nicole: Are you threatening to spank me?
Asher: No threat. I don’t make threats Nicole. I make promises and I want you to know up front what the consequences for things are. So yes, if your behavior is bad enough that it warrants you getting your backside blistered, I’m the man to get the job done. Be and good girl, and I won’t have to resort to that.

The story has mystery, suspense, danger, and some surprises. I loved the story of Nicole and Asher. The chemistry between them sizzles off the pages. When they are together, it is as if fate ordained them to be together.

A wonderful read, great characters and plot I loved every moment of this amazing book

Nicole had discovered after walking in on her husband Kevin and his Bimbo girlfriend making use of her bed, her silk dressing gown and all of this whilst she was supporting him whilst he was taking the bar, she had been working non stop without so much as a thank-you.

Newly divorced she had decided to open a new branch with her boss after inputting a good deal of her divorce settlement and although it had taken hard work the event planning business had been a great success and life had been good.

She had also written a bucket list and had started to do more of the things she loved kayaking, white water rafting and also had been learning how to mountain climb and decided her first solo climb was going to be in Kodiak Alaska and she could not wait.

When she reached Mystic Falls and had visited the Ranger Station to discuss her climbing intentions she had met the chief ranger Asher and something had clicked, they had lunch together and he had shown her around the small town. Then they had spent the night together and it was as though they had always been together, Ashe’s love making had rocked her world and she felt as though they had known each other forever.

The climb is hard but is going well until on the decline the weather changes and taking all the steps taught to her she has one of her ropes bread and barely stops herself with her new ice pick but she had hurt her wrist and knew she had to use the emergency beacon to let the Rangers know she was in trouble.

Asher had known that his wolf was desperate to get to his mate and would do whatever it too to reach her no matter what it takes, the thought of a world without her in it was not worth contemplating.

It was fortunate that her love of shifter titles and the way in which mates were turned were her favourite read. She also loved Asher and even though she was human in her heart knew that there was something very special between them.

I guarantee that when you start reading this book you will not be able to put it down and you will be fascinated by the interactions between Asher and Ellis his Sire and Gemma his mother, they are so alike and both men constantly come to blows but his mother is a diamond.

Then there are the details behind Nicole’s rope that had failed on the climb and now it appears that perhaps someone may have been behind it but you will have to read this for yourself and I assure you that once you begin reading you will not stop until you reach the end.

I assure you that you will love every moment of this book it is simply a fantastic read.

This is one of the best books I've read by Delta James. You can see the pride she takes in her growth as an author. The book is well written and the chemistry between Nicole and Asher is combustible. Nicole is a strong woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. Asher is dominant, but not overbearing. Their story is fun to read and there is a surprising twist at the end that I did not anticipate. Great job! I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Dragon Fury: Reign of Fire Book 3

You cannot escape your fate, especially when dragons are involved.

Wonderful ending to the series. Cooper and Raine are a great couple. I really enjoyed watching them grow closer together.

Reluctant Retiree

Raine has not one but two dragons hunting her. The spirit of an ancient dragon queen who wants to join with her and a bossy male dragon shifter who thinks she is his fated mate.

Cooper is the leader of the Ice Dragons. As he has waited for his mate to appear he has become cold and distant. Watching his friends meet and join with their mates he knows she is coming back soon. This time he will do what is necessary to keep her safe.

Before Raine arrived in Alaska looking to expand her wilderness business she does not know dragons existed. Her sexy and surly bush pilot is none other than Cooper. He recognizes her as his fated mate. When she and Cooper meet sparks fly but not the good kind.

The Cherufe are on the rise again. A battle is coming that can only be won by Raine allowing the dragon queen to join with her.

Can Cooper find his humanity and Raine accept her drakaina in time to lead the fight to put the Cherufe away for good?

Reviewed in the United States on December 10, 2022
The story is the third and final in the Reign of Fire trilogy. I think that it is, by far, my favorite of the three, maybe because I really like Raine and how she handled herself. Cooper and Raine have a huge difference of opinion and just clash from the beginning. The way he ‘tries’ to handle her only makes her angrier. Cooper McKinley has no finesse when talking to Raine, and it only irritates her.

Raine has felt lost since Aria and Eden fell in love. She travels to Alaska to consult with the town of Glacier about bringing Wildworks there to offer upscale guide services. Talking on the phone with Theo was promising but meeting the pilot in Fairbanks and being taken to the town, she isn’t so sure. Then to have Cooper dictate to her, telling Theo to take her phone and computer, makes her extremely upset. Enough that she plans to hike to another town.

The story has plenty of mystery, suspense, secrets, and surprises. Aria’s grandmother used to tell these stories about the Cherufe, but now she is hearing voices. But once she joins with Zafira and becomes a drakaina, she learns that Cooper believes her to be his eternal flame and fated mate. Not that she is willing to accept it.

“We will be one. Your destiny awaits you in the frozen north. Denali and the Ice Dragons need you to defeat the Cherufe.”

Cooper: You are my fated mate.
Raine: Which seems to mean everything to you. The answer to all questions. And yet, it means nothing to me. Nothing.
Cooper: Shift now and return to Glacier at my side, or I will take you there by force.
Raine: Such a charming invitation, and yet I feel compelled to refuse. Here’s the deal McKinley—if I am your fated mate, you won’t do anything to really harm me. But I despise you and refuse to be shackled to you in any way, shape, or form, which means I will do whatever is necessary to claw my way to freedom.
Cooper: Then you are settled in your mind.
Raine: Yes. I will not be carted off by some neanderthal dragon lord who thinks he can impose his will on me.
Cooper: That is where you are wrong. I am Alpha to the Ice Dragons and you’re my queen. You will submit to my will and my authority or else pay the consequences.
Raine: You lay a hand on me, and you’d better never close your eyes again.
Cooper: Then we are agreed. I will make you rue the day you threw your gauntlet at my feet.

The story is a page-turner and full of angst between Cooper and Raine. She doesn’t capitulate to his demands—or wishes and shows she can hold her own. Her hurt with her friends will be mended and they will help her. The future is in her hands, Zafira has shared insight into the past and what must happen in the future. Getting Cooper to trust her, her training, and her skills, and allowing her to be part of eliminating the Cherufe is critical.

“The man can kiss. But he doesn’t just get to walk into my life and say, ‘me dragon; you drakaina; you mine,’ and expect me to be okay with that.”

4.0 out of 5 stars Raine....Bless Her Heart!
Reviewed in the United States on December 9, 2022
am going to be honest here. Raine was a difficult pill to swallow. I am used to the female main characters in Delta James' books being strong, intelligent, and independent. I am used them not easily giving in the the H's dominance. I am used to them using that strength and intelligence to get out of various situations.

What I am not used to is Raine's behavior. She was acting almost completely from a place of emotion, or I should say she was reacting. I am not saying Cooper was in the right here at all. He could have handled the situation better. I don't know that he deserved the physical assault she visited on him.

What bothered me is she gave no thought to her behavior, was not acting based on trying to find out any information that might be helpful, did not pause long enough to use her intelligence or try to be calculating in getting herself out of the situation. She was just a sheer ball of anger lashing out at anyone in her way.

Her being a red head was no excuse for her behavior. Not what she did to the Ice Dragon village or what she did to where Phantom Fire lived. Raine was just obnoxious.

It was hard to overcome my dislike of her until after she and Falkor were together. I still didn't like her, but I was able to lessen my dislike of her. Her behavior took away from the possible relationship with Cooper and diminished any romantic vibe. I don't feel like they were together enough to even try to establish a relationship.

The best part of the book was the training and the battle. I am looking forward to finding out more about Falkor. I would give this one 3.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU’RE MARRYING THE WRONG DRAGON
Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2022
The story is the second in the trilogy of Reign of Fire and picks up with Eden Sommersby’s wedding to Corbin Pontius. Things aren’t as they seem, and nothing is going right for her wedding. When Ridley Monroe arrives early for the wedding with support from his clan, he realizes that Corbin and his minions have nefarious plans. Helping Eden rescue herself from a terrible fate, a called-off wedding, and discovering his fated mate comes with fulfilling obligations before pleasure. Convincing Eden that she is his fated mate won’t be easy—she feels he has ghosted her. She is hurt and angry, and these two must reconnect, where Ridley shows his dominance and Eden submits to him. The Cherufe intends to rise again, and it will take the heart of a drakania queen and dominant dragon to win this battle.

“I believe in the saying that those who don’t know and understand their history are doomed to repeat it.”

“Our love will burn with an eternal fire and we will soar the heavens together, for that is our destiny.”

Sarlay: She is yours, but she is mine as well.
Ridley: And who might you be?
Sarlay: I am she who once ruled here and who followed my sisters into the Rift. We believed we had defeated them, but we were wrong. The Cherufe mean to rise again and this time they must be defeated for all time.
Ridley: You are Sarlay?
Sarlay: I am she who will join with your eternal fire. Best you take care how you try to claim me.

Sarlay: We shall be one. You are not afraid.
Eden: Should I be?
Sarlay: No. Your courage was part of what drew me to you. When the time is right, and I am needed, call to me and we shall be one.
Eden: Who are you? And what is that thing you keep fighting?
Sarlay: I am the spirit of Sarlay, and the battle with the beast you have seen was a long, long time ago. We thought we had defeated the Cherufe, but we only forced them to retreat. One has risen and was defeated by Cessene and her mate. Two more will rise. The destruction of one will be up to you and your mate.
Eden: In case you missed it—I am currently single and have neither prospects nor plans for that to change.
Sarlay: Do not fear. He is coming for you.

The story’s plot will have Eden and Ridley reconnecting, but she is angry at him. She isn’t upset about the marriage between Corbin ending, but she feels Ridley has ghosted her. It will be challenging for these two strong-willed souls to find their path together. She may have been dreaming of Ridley, but that doesn’t mean she is ready to forgive and accept him and his dominance.

“Give over to me, Eden. I am your fated mate, and we will be as one.”

The story is a paranormal battle of good and evil—and not all dragons will fall in the good category. A strong evil force wants to destroy the dragons and humans and reign on earth. The past and present will collide, and Ridley must trust Eden/Sarlay to be part of the battle. Together, they must defeat the Cherufe as a team.

I love the angst, passion, and chemistry of Ridley and Eden. She has dreamed of him, of them, and of him being a dragon and a man—and her dreams were erotic. She also heard voices, with warnings, and it didn’t frighten her, nor did it have her accepting it. Either she was going crazy, or things were going to happen, and soon—she could feel it.

Ridley: You’re mine Eden. Now and forever. You belong to me, and I belong to you.
Eden: You know what they say, while dragons plan, drakaina laugh.

While this story doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, and we know who the following two main characters will be—we are given a tiny glimpse into their past, and the story will be their future. That will be the story of Cooper McKinley and Raine.

The attention to the characters details and back story was diligent as always with this author and it is always a pleasure to familiarise yourself with them as the story unfold.
Eden Sommersby A successful and well-respected business owner is set to marry but it is soon apparent to her that the man is not as he appears and this is when she had called in the assistance of Ridley Monroe. She is a wary female that is not drawn in by a male’s ego or good looks and she values the worth of what a person does rather that his new worth or how much he claims to be worth.
He is drawn to the man in a way she does not really understand and as she surprised to find that in fact, he is her Fated Mate and that for him there would never be another and this is an extremely important fact.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHOICE IS SOMETHING OF AN ILLUSION FOR ALL OF US
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 22, 2022
As an avid fan of Ms. Delta James and her paranormal and shifter series, I was surprised by the uniqueness of this new series. Shifted Existence is a cross between her series that crossed the Void and her shifter series—and it was fascinating. I loved the characters, the unexpected, and the passion within the story. Each book will read as a stand-alone and can be read in any order. Book two, while having the Void and fated mates, it is a new realm and characters.

Earth and its leader’s arrogance cost them a high price when they are invaded and must now capitulate to wolf shifters who hold all the power. Now, it is known as the Conquered Realm. One of the costs, all females of age able to bear children must be available. If a woman refuses to enter their organized training camp, she will be deemed ‘feral’ and placed in an area without any means of food, clothing, shelter, or protection. She will be on her own, and anyone found helping a feral will face punishment. Twice a year, a portal will open where wolf shifters can come hunt and claim a female.

Talon, Alpha of the Storm Rift Pack in the Eclipse Province, has watched many of his warriors use the Void, going to the Conquered Realm and claiming a mate. He has never felt the need to go—but that will change. A voice will call to Talon and show him his fated mate. With the Hunt of the Wolf Moon, which opens tomorrow on the Conquered Realm, this time, Talon will be joining his single warriors.

Voice: She awaits you on the other side. I am no trick, Talon of the Eclipse Province. I have seen her and your fated mate waits for you on the other side of the Void. I do not wish to fight with you, Alpha, merely to help. She is there, and she needs you.
Talon: Mine.
Voice: I thought you might think that. She is called Bailey Pierce and she is located most often in a harsh and heated place known as Pictured Rocks in the northern province by the great lakes known as Michigan.
Talon: You have done me a service. What favor do you ask in return?
Voice: Only that you find true happiness for the rest of your days and beyond with your fated mate.

Voice: He is coming.
Bailey: Who is he?
Voice: He is your fated mate.
Bailey: Not if I have anything to say about it.

The story’s plot is unique and a page-turner. I love the characters, the angst, with a touch of mystery and suspense. Read and learn what happened that set this invasion and claiming in motion. The wolves are dominant males disciplining their naughty mates, but they also pleasure them. Talon had decided he would not take a mate, but after the Voice from the Void shows him his mate, his plans change, and he is ready to claim her. Bailey knows the Hunt of the Wolf Moon is ready to happen again, and she does what she can to prepare and stay hidden. The Voice in the Void lets her know her mate is on the way. Let the games begin—of cat and mouse—hunter and hunted. No matter what, in the end, they both win.

“Enjoy your run, my mate, for I will enjoy running you to ground.”

“Let the past and the Conquered Realm go, Bailey. There is a whole wonderful future stretching out before us.” --Dani

The story has the good, the bad, and the evil. I love how, while Talon is a dominant and controlling Alpha, he still respects Bailey and her abilities—at least when they are not trying to avoid him and his capture. He trusts her abilities enough when danger is present for her friends and the other ‘ferals’ to allow her some control. In the end, it is a positive for all those in the Eclipse Province. Bailey is well received and an asset to all

'Shifted Existence" is Delta James' second book in her unique series, "Looking Glass Multiverse".

"If all he’d ever given her was flattery, he wouldn’t be where he was—lost in the darkness and separated from the light, with only occasional glimpses into the lives and souls of those outside the Void… outside of time and space. But it is here in the inky blackness that he belongs, for he helped her with more things than just flattery. Many believe the tales of Snow White are fantastical and untrue. They are wrong."
James, Delta. Shifted Existence: A Multiverse Fated Mate Romance (Looking Glass Multiverse Book 2) (p. 6). Kindle Edition

For every action, there is a reaction and that reaction brings forth some type of consequences. The mirror is facing him and that's where Talon and Bailey, our Hero and heroine, come in. As alpha of the Storm Rift Pack he is expected to take a make in order to have an heir but Talon has made up his mind to forgo having a mate and name the son of his second in command as his heir. That is until a disembodied face in the river tells him his fated mate is waiting on the other side of the void and she's in danger. The Moon Hunt is coming and there are only two sections for the lottery winners to get a mate on Earth. Either the soft, weak ones being trained on how to submit or the women who have refused to submit and are running wild with no discipline at all. The defiant, wild ones are known as ferals and Talon's fated mate is among that group. Bailey has learned through the last three years not to get attached to any of the other women running for their lives. It's hard to make a friend, get attached, and then watch them be captured and forcibly removed from Earth. When the disembodied face comes to her body of water to let her know her fated mate is coming for her Bailey decides she'd rather die than be captured by a mutant and taken to another world. This is a unique world with a completely new set of circumstances which makes this storyline fascinating. And to have the magic mirror working for good in order to pay penance makes it all the more surreal. A great read to say the least.

This was pretty good. I am not going to lie this wasn’t as good as the first one but still enjoyable. Bailey was told that wolf-shifters abused their women and use them as breeders and throw them away when they have no use for them. Talon didn’t want to take a puny human for a mate, until the mirror showed him his fated mate. I love the ending when they kicked that evils wolf butt. Good read

The Women of Wayward Mates

While I was creating these images, I had the great pleasure of once again visiting each couple. I found things that I’d missed before. So, take a minute and revisit some old friends!

Reluctant Retiree

Brought to Heel

  • Name: Skylar Owens
  • Species: Wolf, Alpha female
  • Appearance: A rare woman—a tall redhead with an independent and fierce spirit. Her long hair was a mass of waves and half-formed curls. She had catlike green eyes, framed by long lashes set in a strong, but very feminine face.
  • Mate: Dylan Grainger, Alpha of Calon Gwyllt

Marked and Mated

  • Name: Darby Callan
  • Species: Wolf
  • Appearance: She was beautiful. Of medium height, she had beautiful pale blonde hair, blue eyes, and a decidedly feminine figure. Her breasts were a bit larger than average with enticing areolas and nipples. She had a lovely, rounded, firm bottom, a small waist, and long, lean legs.
  • Mate: Jean-Michel Gautier, Alpha of New Orleans

Mastering His Mate

  • Name: Rosalyn Kincanon
  • Species: Wolf, Turned Human
  • Appearance: Tall, dark haired.
  • Mate: Oliver Halsey, Alpha of Hamptons

Taking His Mate

  • Name: Madeline Stone
  • Species: Wolf, Turned Human
  • Appearance: The dark-haired woman was taller than Darby, but she had the same kind of lush figure. Her face was lovely with a smooth, pale ivory complexion and eyes the color of dark caramel. Her hourglass shape sat atop long, shapely legs. She had a casually elegant look with minimal makeup and her hair pulled back in a loose ponytail
  • Mate: Griffin Owen, Alpha of Bae Diogel

Claimed and Mated

  • Name: Catherine Livingston
  • Species: Wolf, Turned Human
  • Appearance: She was beautiful—tall, blonde-haired, with piercing blue eyes. She had beautiful large breasts and a well-defined waist that curved outward to form hips made for bearing his children. And her ass was a thing of perfection.
  • Mate: Marco DeMedici, Alpha of Tuscany

Claimed and Mastered

  • Name: Ava Rhys
  • Species: Wolf, Female Alpha
  • Appearance: The woman was stunningly beautiful—not overly tall, raven haired with a strong, athletic body with just the right amount of curves.

Hunted and Claimed

  • Name: (Colleen) Riley Gentry (Byrnes)
  • Species: Wolf, Female Alpha

Rules of the Pack

Alisha Knight is a down-to-earth woman who just so happens to have her sights set on the beta of a large werewolf pack. But despite the way her body reacts to his powerful presence, bitter experience has shown her that a wolf pack is no place for a human girl.

As his alpha’s trusted second-in-command, Phil McKenna takes his responsibilities seriously, even when that means taking disobedient females over his knee for an attitude adjustment. Though he is smitten with Alisha, the feisty little human friend of his alpha’s mate, humans and wolves don’t usually mix well and her presence could easily put both her and the pack in danger.

Yet try as he might, Phil can’t keep his hands off Alisha. His fearsome urge to mark her, claim her, and dominate her completely is only increased when her defiant attitude earns her a hard, bare-bottom spanking. But when the pack is attacked by a cunning, vicious enemy and Alisha’s life is put in grave peril, Phil must decide if he is ready to cast aside caution and take her as his mate.

Phil is the beta enforcer of a werewolf pack. He takes his job very seriously, handing out punishments when someone shows him or another ranking member disrespect or puts themselves or the pack in danger. Alisha is a human, but grew up knowing about werewolves her entire life. When she meets Phil, she knows that he's the man for her. The only problem is, Phil's not convinced that she would be a good mate for him because how do you have a human woman as a mate in a werewolf pack that is surrounded by danger?

This was a really great story. As I was reading, I thought I knew what was going to happen next and then a twist would happen, changing up the entire story.

I loved the tension between Phil and Alisha. They both clearly liked each other, but due to their pasts they both tried to fight their attraction for one another. Phil wanted to keep Alisha safe and Alisha also knew that being a human in a werewolf pack maybe wasn't the smartest idea. As the old saying going, 'the heart wants what it wants'. These two hearts wanted each other and when they finally got together, it was explosive.

Very well done Ms. Raine. I can't see what couple you write next for this series...maybe Cal and Portia...please. 🙂

Reading this second book of the gifted author, Adaline Raine, was a wonderful treat. It was like seeing old friends and catching up since Marked By The Alpha and more about the pack. It again had romance, suspense, danger, violence, erotic sex and spanking. I would love to see a third book, hint, hint.

Phil is the enforcer in the pack, he makes sure that everyone follows the rules and is respectful to one another. If they aren’t, he’ll give them a firm spanking. When he meets Alisha, a human, he can’t help but be attracted to her. Alisha is also attracted to Phil, but after a few bad experiences, she tries to fight her growing feelings.

This was the first story that I’ve ever read of Ms. Raine’s. I have to say, I found it quite enjoyable. This story flowed very well, even though it was a sequel, I didn’t feel lost while reading it. The sex and spanking scenes were hot! Especially the build up to Alisha and Phil finally mating!

I really liked all of the characters. They all seemed cool. I wish that we could have gotten to known Portia better. She seems like she’s hiding something. Maybe that was something in the first book I missed. If not, then I hope that there is a third book to explain what Miss. Portia is hiding.

Overall, this was a great story and I look forward to going back and reading the first in the series.
