Salvatore Giuliani is not a happy werewolf. It's his duty as leader to track down the pureblood females who can keep his people from extinction. But the moment he catches scent of Harley, a pureblood held by a pack of mangy curs, his savage need for her obliterates all other instincts. And the only thing worse than being captured is finding that beautiful, independent Harley defiantly refuses to become his mate. Harley has been taught to distrust all Weres, especially their arrogant king. She won't be used for breeding or bonded against her will, not even to a man who makes every nerve tingle with awareness. Yet Salvatore is her key to saving the family she never knew she had-if she dares to succumb to his dark, predatory desire, and face a vicious enemy sworn to destroy them both…

"Ivy does her usual excellent job of weaving intriguing plot threads and complicated characters into high-octane adventure." (RT Book Reviews)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Salvatore, the charming, arrogant, sexy, Alpha King of the Were-shifters has been looking for 4 genetically altered pureblood females cubs that were stolen from him over 30 years ago and these females were bred in the hope that they would restore his dying race of Were-Shifters. He has already found 2 but 1 is now mated to the the King of the Vampires and the other is barren. Suddenly he gets a whiff of a pureblood female and its 'ding ding' time for both his libido and the mating urge but there's just one problem…..
Yes, Harley is one of those cubs, a pureblood female she's strong-willed, independent and very capable but she has been raised by a Cur (a half-blood werewolf) who's got his own evil agenda. He has kept her cocooned and has brainwashed her into thinking terrible things about Salvatore so, unfortunately for him, she's doesn't want to play!!
However, they are both just pawns in an old enemy's plan to rule over everything so they must work together, despite the sizzling sexual chemistry and Salvatore wanting them to complete the mate bond, to destroy the evil being that's threatening their very existence. But wolves will be wolves and before too long fur, fangs, tongues and other bodily parts become hotly entwined. Various characters from past books make an appearance and Levet, the funny French Gargoyle, is a help but he suddenly disappears and that's a question for another book.
Ms Ivy is a gifted paranormal romance writer who brings in lots of new characters then adds new twists and turns to each of her books which smoothly moves the whole storyline along so it never becomes stale and you're never bored. Her imaginative world is full of action, tension, adventure, magic, drama, humor and there's lots of strange, weird, wonderful and sexy inhabitants that'll grab you, entertain you and won't let you go until it's oh-so-sweet HEA ending and then leaves you panting for the next book in her series.
Worth a credit? This whole series is soooo very credit-worthy and I've now just downloaded books 7, 8 and 9 WITHOUT reading what they're about…... because she's just that good.
