Publisher's Summary

One minute, wolf shifter Katrina Hagan is shoe shopping with her packmate Joy, the next minute, she's being carried off by the Alpha of the Killingworth pack. Now she's a hostage, a pawn in the negotiations between two rival packs - so why can't she act like it? Her kidnapper, Maddox "Mad Dog" Killingworth, has a reputation as a ruthless killer - she should be petrified.

Instead, within days of being taken prisoner, the sassy she-wolf has Maddox's pack eating out of her hand and she's making Maddox's inner wolf howl with need every time she saunters by. Too bad their packs have been mortal enemies for generations, and she's fighting tooth and claw to resist her burning desire for Maddox.

Just when it seems like Maddox might finally be breaking down her barriers, it turns out that Katrina's pack hasn't been playing fair, and a shocking betrayal threatens to wipe out Maddox's entire pack. How can Maddox choose between the love of his life...and the life of his pack?

It's Short and I Still Don't Want to Finish It

First off, this book is not a continuation of the series. Its set in the same world but I am an hour and a half in and there is only one character overlap with a 10 second interaction. I have liked the books in this series up until this point, but this is really a no go for me. The heroine is a good person and the entire town turns on her because of her stepfather's actions and yet no one will tell her why they all hate her now? Really? Plus the Hero seems like an afterthought.
I just can't keep going and the book only has 2 hours left. There is really nothing to make you want to keep reading. Maybe if there were characters from the previous books in this one, I would at least keep listening for that, but since that's not the case I have to stop.

Good series

I have really enjoyed the Timber Valley Pack series by Georgette St. Clair. They're great one day listens with the right amount of action, snark, strong females, hot alphas, and and a bit of suspense. I will be looking for more books narrated by Maxine Mitchell. She does a great job with narration!

Excellent

Romance and action with an interesting storyline too boot- I will be reading all of this series because it’s a lot more than a romantic battle between the hero and heroine. It’s spies, mad scientist, babies, experiments etc.

Love These Shifters

These short, sexy, shifter stories are perfect to listen to while doing mindless chores. My Audible membership is well worth the price.

Another great Timber Valley book

Katrina refuses to bow to bullies particularly the bully that is Maddox, alpha of a rival pack. Kidnapped and a hostage pawn in negotiations Katrina certainly doesn't want to go back to her overbearing stepfather but is she really falling for Maddox?

Katrina is strong and sassy - she needs to be because before too long she is about to find out her pack, her stepfather has certainly not been playing fair and has not been truthful - can love of a person and love of a pack win the day?

I loved this Timber Valley book, a great listen.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story

I enjoyed the characters in this story. I’m not a fan of all the extra shifters like Gophers and coyote etc. However I still enjoyed the story. I love a happy ending.

Love it.

Katrina Hagan's mother is terrible, she is more concern about prestige than the happiness and well-being of her daughter. Good thing she had Maddox and other people could depend on when she needed it most. Love the storyline with just the right amount of sweet, steam and suspense.

Really Good

This is about Katrina Hagan and Maddox Killingworth both wolf shifters. Maddox has always wanted Katrina and when he takes her hostage things go in directions neither could foresee and it’s all due to her stepfather and his machinations. Just when you think you know where the story is going it takes a different path, it’s full of intrigue, bad guys doing bad things to the innocent and a scorching hot attraction between Katrina and Maddox and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
