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.

I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
You know its a good book when you are grinning at the book by the time it gets to the second or third chapter. You know its a notch above good when you start checking the time left on the book (even before you get through the first part) and hoping that there was still lots and lots of time left! Yep, its officially the best book I have listened to so far this year. Terryn and Trey, as a couple just make me grin.
Not only was Suzanne Wright a wonderful story teller, but Jill Redfield is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to. There were times when I found myself wondering if the narrator was a male or female. When that happens, you have got to know she's good.
Oh and by the way.....lol......I am not even through with the book yet!!!! Headed to Amazon to see if she has written anything else :)
I took a chance on this and I'm soooo glad I did - it captures you from Chapter 1 as Taryn, a fiesty Latent Werewolf (a Wereshifter who cannot shift), is kidnapped and made an offer she can't refuse by Trey, a mouthwatering sexy Alpha with attitude, (every good wereshifting book should have one) and the story heats up from there.
They have to deceive her father and her pack into believing that she and Trey are soul mates but in order to do this they have to go through some of the 'claiming' rituals (ahh shucks poor things!). It all backfires because they are lustfully attracted to each other and there's lots and lots (and lots) of sexual verbalisations about what he is going to do to her........ and BEWARE they are all graphically carried out.
So, if you're looking for a riveting hot paranormal romance that has strong kick-ass characters, lots of action, great sarcastic one liners that are so funny, an interesting addictive and well written plot with a few twists and, if that's not enough for you, then top it off with a talented narrator that brings to life a Wereworld that, once you visit it, you just won't be able to stay away - so I can't wait for Wicked Cravings Dante's story to come out.
Worth a credit? YES (even 2) - but my 'under $10 rule' of just buying it applied and I saved my credit for a more expensive (but maybe not so worthy) listen.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This book definitely followed the recipe for a great paranormal romance book - super sexy alpha males, kick-butt action, lots of steamy sex, awesome supporting characters and plenty of preternatural politics. Add to that great narration and some hilarious one liners and you get Feral Sins. What a great listen! I'm giving this one 4 stars for the snarky comments and hilarious one liners alone.
This book is not for the faint of heart or for those of you that shy away from steamy sex scenes. This one has an abundance of sex, dirty talk and then some. So know what your getting yourself into first.
This is not the first time I've looked over at my partner in the middle of a book and declared "This is Porn....", but this is probably the best time.
Usually books like this one, that are beginning to redefine both paranormal fantasy and the bodice ripper genre, are written so that I just want them to be over with so I can enjoy the good bits and stop cringing in between. Not true of this story!
There was enough interesting plot and non relationship tension to make this book a book I would have wanted to read even if it hadn't been for the INCREDIBLY steamy scenes between the two leads. There were also quite a few very funny lines and quips.
The only thing I didn't like about the book was that some of the secondary characters veered pretty far into "stick figures with a schtick" territory. Most of the time this was still fairly amusing, but sometimes I just really wanted them to shut up.
Jill Redfield did a great job of bringing across the main characters voice, and reading the steamier bits without distracting from what was going on. I always feel like the best narrators are the ones you don't notice, and so I guess she did a great job, because she only made the story better.
Overall, totally worth my credit, but I will not make the mistake of listening to any more of her books with my car windows down again! Hi Kids!
Wow! Paranormal lovers, remember this name: Suzanne Wright! I'd never heard of her before, but I've already started seeking out other work by this author. This book was unexpected and amazing. While it stays within the paranormal genre, it still felt fresh, in large part I think due to the fantastic characters.
Our heroine Taryn is sassy, sarcastic and often just plain rude. This is not, I suppose, unusual in the paranormal romance genre, and these very traits, more often than not, make me grind my teeth in frustration. Often these smart mouthed heroines sound like spoiled teenagers trying to prove they are tough, but that's not the case with Taryn. Somehow, Suzanne Wright makes it work. Taryn's dialogue comes across as witty, her sarcasm is more often than not hilarious.
Trey is an alpha male you can believe in. He truly follows his wolf instincts, and I really enjoyed that. No simpering human in wolf's clothing, Trey is all beast and brawn when the need arises. While it's true that, in this book, the heroine steals the show, she doesn't do so without a good deal of help from the hunky hero.
Yes, the sex is hot, and not for the faint hearted, but it is meaningful and well balanced in this book. While there's a good deal of hanky panky going on, it doesn't feel like a book full of unnecessary sex scenes, nor does the sex get repetitious as it does in some books. It flows naturally with the story line, and that is a rare thing indeed.
Jill Redfield, oh how do I sing her praises? Her pacing was excellent, and I really enjoyed her portrayal of Taryn. When reading humour, timing and delivery are everything, and she handles Taryn's character phenomenally well.
If you like paranormal romance, chances are you're going to love this book!
Sexy, Sarcastic and Wolftastic
I have to say my favorite part of this book is the shifter aspect. I think the author did a really good job of portraying the pack mentality. Also the overall development of the alpha wolves was good. A lot happened in this book and that was one of the main things I liked about. OH also the main character was such a strong character and soooo sarcastic all the time. I loved it!
I really liked her. She definitely grew on me as the story progressed. I thought she did a particularly good job portraying Taryn. She pulled off the sarcastic lines very well. She did a great job on the whole thing. I could really hear the emotions of the characters through the narration.
I just loved this story, its not for the sensitive. The sex scenes and dirty talk might put some off. But it didn't worry me. Both characters are strong minded, strong willed and fierce, so floaty frilly bedroom scenes wouldn't have worked. Tarryn had me in tears with her snarky comments. The bit with the elephant, then calling the stupid she wolf an STD but best of all was telling Greta to pull her lip over her head and swallow. It was too good.
Both characters have dealt with their respective traumas and its moulded them into shifters not to be underestimated. The pack members are a cohesive unit but filled with delightful characters.
The narration was seriously good too, Suzanne Wright has another book in this series, plus some vamp offerings. I hope these get recorded. I can't wait.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Totally unexpected... Really Really!!! OMG! Boy did I enjoy this. I was expecting something like a simple shifter book... but WOW I was totally blown away...from beinning to end, which never ever happens in a shifter book!!! This was like the Crossfire Series but Shifter Style plus it even had the same narrator (Jill Redfield) so that was a plus... SOoo good. Book 2 needs to come out like yesterday, if you know what I mean.
The blurp pretty much describes the book without giving too much away, but totally draws you in... which I loved...But if I had to describe the characters I would say think Gideon Cross and Eva from Crossfire but Shifters...I am not kidding... SOoooo GOod though... Then the end... when Tarren went all ALPHA SHE-WOLF>.. WHAT!!! Man this was sooo good. I literally did not put this book down... straight read/listen.
Narration was awesome... Jill Redfield is simply great. I love the way she brings that sarcastic smart axx personality to a female character and the I am a Dom, simply because I am Alpha male persona to her male characters. Loved it.
This is a buy... or credit.
I am Who I am; and you are Who you are...so lets leave it at that.
Where should I start. Well I got the book because its romance and paranormal two of my favorite things. (And let get real the price was not bad at all.)
The herion of the story is great. She is snarky and takes no lip from no one. She reminds of me:0) The series will be like other romances but what draws you in are the characters. There is a tragic alpha with a sad back story and the same sad back story for the herion. They need to learn how to open up with one another. Sound familiar. Well it is a romance. It is how the story is told. Well I think they did a pretty good job. There is also a lot naughtyness going on but again romance. The writer introduces a lot of character so I believe the series will be a long one. It kinda reminds me of the Christine Warrens series "the others" but this one only has werewolves. I enjoyed how they did not take a lot time explaining how "humans" know about them. I think it takes away from the characters' love affair when they start talking about how socity reacts to the paranormal. They also did not wallow in the unhappy childhoods the characters had.
All in all it is worth the money and the free time. There are a lot of steamy love scene, a lot dirty talk, strong female with a soft spot for her man, sexy dangerous men, funny one liners (my opinion), and werewolf politics.
I was entertain...I hope you will be too ;o)
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I know that I will be listening to this audiobook again! I had previously read the book when it was self-published and was waiting for the audiobook so I was very happy that it exceeded my expectations. The narrarator was great and really got into the characters. I am anxiously awaiting the next audiobook in the seriesto be released. I can't wait.
