Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him. When he makes her a tempting proposal that will benefit both of them, the strong-willed healer has to decide whether escaping an unwelcomed bond with Roscoe is worth the risks of mating with Trey, no matter how temporary their allegiance is intended to be.

The storyline was good, but I fast-forwarded thru much of the intimate scenes as they were a very poor attempt at 'steamy'. The sexual bantering of all characters and the general spitfire comments from Taryn were too immature and childish for my taste.
The mystery of who the informant was going to be.
I spend 90+ minutes a day in my car, Audible makes it enjoyable regardless of what's happening in traffic. My taste varies from endurance fitness to economics and from to combat stories and romance novels.
I'll admit it. I'm a changeling/shifter addict. Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series; been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. Thea Harrison's Elder Race Series; burned through them in under a month of listening. But this had them both beat, IMHO. More intensity, more alpha female, and of course, more sex. While Storm's Heart remains my favorite of all shifter series books (Thea Harrison), this was a very close second and beat out the Psy-Changelings hands down.
Overall, fun and interesting characters, entertaining plot line, great leading female character, and hot sex. What more could you want to make your commute a little more interesting?
This is a nice ride. I was very surprised and pleased to listen to this book. It started well by establishing the definition of an Alpha male character. A strong leader that is respected and truly leads his pack. Our female lead is also an Alpha and she is a hoot and such a good match for him. She is strong, sarcastic, smart and real. Good luck on figuring out who has the upper hand in that relationship.
This is definitely an adults only listen, sex scenes are detailed and can get rough and tumbly. Our narrator did a good job with the male and female voices.
This is truly an entertaining book. Lets see what book 2 brings....
First, I would like the change the sentences, because they are too short and choppy. At least in the beginning of the book I found this disturbing. To add more elaborate vocabulary would also improve the reading experience.
Some of the description of the sex scenes are like rape with consent. Its annoying and boring after a while to listen to a story in which a man always wants to control, lead and dominate the sexual activity and a woman whimpers and has to let things happen, sometimes with struggle and sometimes without. Stupid game!!!!
This should be in a category titled "Violent Pornography". Romance isn't vulgar, graphic, rough sex scenes. The theme seemed to be "I'm raping you because you like it, even if you are screaming and calling me obscene names." I could be wrong because I have never studied wolves, but I'm pretty sure that they don't repeatedly bite and scratch up their mates.
I will not purchase books by this author in future.
Fun, Sexy, entertaining
Maria Snyders, Healers series but much more sexy.
No, this was the first and I loved it. She brings the story to life.
Yes, towards the end of the story when the two main characters finally conquer their fears.
I'm an unrepentant bookworm with too much time on my hands. I read at least 100+ books annually, with audio books as my main addiction!
This was an excellent book. I normally dont write reviews, but felt I had to share for this book and this series (even tho it's only on book 2 as I write this).
It reminded me a little of J. D. Tyler's books. Very carnal and sexy.
I think she did a very good job. She's very good at using different voices to differentiate the characters and doesnt slip up on them like some voice actors do. And yes, I'm calling her a voice actor because of how well she read this book. She really put feeling and life and emotion to the words. If a line stated that the character laughed, she says the line laughing, if they had tears in their voice, she does that too. I think she did a very good job. It's sometimes hard to do books like this because sometimes the sex scenes can come off as odd or cheesy depending on how the reader reads it, but it didnt really in these. And that's important in a book like this.
Oh definitely. I would have but it got to be 3am and I still had 3 hours left and I had to sleep. Put it right back on first thing in the morning tho!
Im going to be very blunt with this. If you are prudish at all, dont get this book. If no inhibitions, a** play, f'ing hard, dominant/submissive, dirty talk, words like c**k, p***y, or a lot of cussing makes you blush, dont get this. Basically if you find this section hard to read, dont get this book. If, like me, you find such things intriguing, DEFINITELY get this book. You wont regret it. Honestly, I cant believe it was so cheap. I didnt even have to spend a credit on it because it was less than $10. And it was worth every single penny. This is a book I will listen to over and over again...as long as I make sure I've got headphones when I do ;)
Taryn the main character is feisty, loveable and throws some really great snappy-one liners. Trey, the male lead is controlled, overbearing, strong and throws some great snappy-one liners right back. The overall theme is romance. This isn't a new plot formula, but it's done really well. There's good character development, great banter / dialogue, graphic romantic scenes, a bit of salty language and a solid performance from the narrator -- this one is fun.
Yes, this book had me at the first chapter. It was all around great
It was funny,sexy, and very action packed I loved the whole story I keep looking to see how much time I had left I never wanted it to end I was sad when the book was over lol
Tarin and Greta loved them and the boys as Greta called them. Dominick with his corny jokes Tarin with her smart ass mouth just loved it
It's so worth a credit hell when I finished this book I had to wait 4 days for my free credit. I couldn't wait Nd bought the second one in this series and can't wait for more
I bought this book some time ago, and I will admit- I'm a finicky woman and sometimes book covers will just rub me the wrong way. I think that was the case here, because once I got started I could not stop listening. I could not stop listening to: go to the bathroom, go to the grocery store, go for a walk (only sane time), and even to bed. So let us get to the reason why this book was so good. It was hilarious, but not with the really crappy one liners that belong on bumper stickers and T's at Hot Topic. No, the main characters had a sense of humor through life's B.S. Plus the heroine was strong and NEVER needed to be saved. She wasn't the "little missus waiting for her time to blossom", bleh. And the hero was well, an alpha male dealing with an alpha female. Plot-wise, this is a romance book and not a thriller. For the most part the author could keep some tension and fun action scenes in a hot and heavy love story. Be forewarned, if you are not into explicit sex, foul language, and erotic play especially dealing with light BDSM and erotic themed content, this book is not for you. And if you do then read it and go "aw-my-gawd this book is so dirty" while laughing the fat cells off your butt. Well at least I hope that's what I'm doing.
Give me more!!!!
