Publisher's Summary

Wolf-shifter Vanessa Burns has survived a life of brutality and neglect. Being kidnapped, drugged, and forced into an underground fighting ring is just the beginning of one man’s sick and twisted obsession. 

Travis Kameron, the alpha of the Crescent Ice pack, suffering a similar fate, wakes up to find his life is about to be irreparably changed by the fierce she-wolf in the next cage. 

Can they put aside old rivalries and the past and work together to not only survive and escape but also weather the storm of complications, revenge, and betrayals waiting for them on the outside? 

(Mature audiences of those aged 18 or older for graphic sexual and violent content.)

A good sexy story.

I am not a fan of violence I believe there is enough in real life but this book with all the blood and violence gives us plenty of
yummy sex and it is packaged in a good story with well crafted characters.

The Narrator closes the deal with a good performance so you have an entertaining read.

Kameron and Vanessa


This is my first book by this author, so I was unsure what to expect, I was not disappointed. The book starts with Travis Kameron the Alpha of the Crescent Moon Pack waking up in wolf form in a cage with no memory of how he got there - to make matters worse his senses have become dull but most importantly, he has lost the ability to shift back into his human form!

In the cage opposite, he could see a white wolf, a female with the most incredible green eyes, she was watching him but refused to answer when he tried to speak to her via a mental link. She was Vanessa Burns, she had been there for a long time, she didn't know how long because the men keeping her there, kept drugging her. Her brother Aiden, the Alpha of the Outlander Pack was the only person she thought might be looking for her but had it been too long, had he given up by now? Vanessa feared she couldn't last much longer, she's been drugged so many times, they drugged her to wake up, to make her sleep, she's been beaten countless times and shocked by a vicious shock collar just as many, but being raped by Dominic the leader of these men was the worst point of her captivity.

Dominic runs an illegal fighting ring and forces shifters to fight or die Vanessa has lost count of the lives she has taken to survive but she knows she's getting weaker and soon she will be the one to die. Her greatest regret is that she will never see the pup she is carrying.

Over time a connection/bond forms between Travis and Vanessa, Travis leans which pack she is from, her father killed his father but was then killed by her brother. Her father was a cruel and terrible man who had made her life hell. Will Travis hold her father's sins against her?

Days pass, they don't know how many but the day comes when they are put in the ring together, they are supposed to fight to the death - but neither will fight the other. Then just as Dominic is about to shoot one of them they are rescued by her brother Aiden and members of his pack.

What follows is a moving and exciting story about love, betrayal, and learning to trust set against a background of family love, hate and distrust. A really well written and enthralling story.

The narration of this book by Rebecca Winder was excellently done, she managed to capture the essence of the characters together with their feelings which added to my enjoyment of this very well written paranormal love story.

I own the eBook and was given an audio copy as a gift, I am voluntarily writing this review.

All in my feels

Wow what an emotional rollercoaster! I liked that the story did not drag any parts out. It just kept going and getting me all in my feels. I loved this take on werewolves. The story was not predictable like most. I did not like how it ended. I have so many questions left unanswered!
Narration was done by Rebecca Winder and she did awesome! She was able to hold my attention throughout the story.

Crescent Vendetta

This is the first book in this series. Travis wakes up in a cage. He doesn't know how he got there. He is an alpha werewolf. Vanessa has been in the cage forever it seems. She was captured and now fights for her life. When they are freed by her brother things do not seem to get better. She cannot shift to her human form. She is pregnant. And her pack will not take her back. He will take her to his to protect. The story was intense in many ways. And I enjoyed the narration. Will look out for more of the books in this series when they become available.

Great Paranormal Romance

This book is my first book by Desiree Scott and will not be my last. She writes great paranormal romance (my favorite genre). The narration was spot on. The book starts out good and gets even better. I don’t want to give spoilers so my suggestion is to try this book. You will not be sorry. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that the rest of the series will be on Audible soon.

Great Paranormal Romance!

This was my second book from this author, and she really amazes me, because she can write paranormal romance as great as romantic suspense! Crescent Vendetta is the first book in the Vendetta Series. This story is really well written, with a great storyline. Vanessa and Travis are both great characters, and they both share an undeniable chemistry. The side characters are also very interesting! This story has it all! The scenes in the fighting ring are brutal and violent, but after that, the story is suspenseful, romantic, steamy and sweet. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series, Bear's Shadow! The narration was well done. This was my first listen to Rebecca Winder's voice. She has a soft voice, easy to understand.

Fish out of water

I really like these stories where there is someone is a fish out of water. The dialogue between characters is very interesting in these situations.

Get this right now! You won't regret it!

I cannot express how much I enjoyed this story. It is hot, steamy, romantic and so much story building! I LOVED THIS!! I couldn't get enough! I have listened to this twice since downloading it! It is about a wolf shifter Vanessa and Alpha wolf shifter Travis. They both end up in a fighting ring where shifters are being pitted against each other in life or death matches and they grow a bond. Vanessa has a secret. One that could kill her and makes it very hard for Travis to protect her, but he tries. And boy is there connection heart flutter inducing! This story does jump time a few times, usually just a few months. This was SUCH a splendid story and the way Rebecca Winder delivers the story is top notch. I don't think I've had the pleasure of listening or reading Desiree L Scott's work before but I sure will now!! This was so worth a credit!

I requested and was given this audiobook complimentary at my request and have voluntarily left this review with my honest opinion.

Mated?

Desiree has written a highly emotional and disturbing shifter romance.

Outlander Wolf-shifter Vanessa Burns meets the alpha of the Crescent Ice pack in the worst possible situation...

Travis never expected to meet his enemies daughter. Never wanted to feel the need to protect her, or for his wolf to want her. But strange things happen when you are in a fight for survival.

It is rare that the heroine is as strong as the hero, but in this case Vanessa is. Travis is adorable with his dedication to his pack and family, his strength and passion. A true Alpha.

I recommend listening to this book with a strong drink and a box of tissues beside you, you won't regret it. There are some very graphic scenes of violence and abuse but above all this book is about family and a love that triumphs against true evil.

Great start to a paranormal romance series!

This book meets all your expectations for a paranormal romance. It is entertaining, intense, quite fast paced and easy to listen to. It has mating bonds, violence, strong characters, alphas and enforcers, packs and so on. But there are also softer elements to balance the story, including family, babies, and romance. I particularly enjoyed the fact that Vanessa, though not referred to as an alpha female, is a fighter and unafraid of defending herself and family when required. Despite Travis being an alpha of his pack, he supports her right to fight for herself.

The author introduces us to lots of interesting support characters. As this is a series, I am hopeful we may encounter some of them again, especially if they get their own stories. I am certainly looking forward to the rest of the series.
