Publisher's Summary

He conquered her. Now he will claim her.

When Rowan inherited control of her pack upon her father's death, she vowed never to marry, and many a suitor has since been sent home disappointed. But Alaric of Ravenscar is no suitor....

He is a warlord, never defeated in battle, and he has come to take what he wants. He means to conquer not just Rowan's lands but her beautiful virgin body as well, and her efforts to defy him merely result in her being mounted and claimed with her well-spanked bare bottom still burning.

Soon, Alaric will mark her as his mate, but first she will be thoroughly and shamefully mastered.

Publisher's note: Warlord includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't listen to this audiobook.

Sexy shifter romance

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. A few things to realize before listening to this book: 1. This is a wolf shifter story so the males are dominant over the females. 2. This book does contain discipline spankings so that the females become submissive. 3. There is quite a bit of hot erotic sex scenes. If none of the above bothers you, you will love this story. Rowan is a strong woman that is the alpha of her pack. Alaric is a conqueror that is sent to take over her pack. When he realises that she is his true mate, he changes his tactics but still plans on dominating her. Little does he know what he is in for. I loves the wild rebellious nature of this story. This story has intrigue, war battles, rebellious women, and many spankings and erotic sex scenes. Jack Calihan is one of my favorite narrators, and if you listen to this story you will know why. Jack puts such energy and enthusiasm into his readings. He gives Alaric a deep domineering and panty melting sexy voice. He gives the others their own distinctive voices. His readings of the sex scenes will have you needing a cold shower or your vibrator. It is so delightful to listen to him narrate a story. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Alaric is Much too Dominating

Rowan had an ordered life – unmated and the alpha of her pack. Along comes Alaric, who takes over her life and her pack. He delivers swift punishment by spanking her. He does not allow a woman to have or speak her own mind. It is his way or no way. How annoying! To him, NO does not mean no if your body just happens to respond. Alaric marks her as his mate. I found him to be just too much and could understand if any woman drove their sword through him. It is a shame she couldn’t knock him over the head until he passed out but when/if he came to, she would be punished. He was way to dominating and needed to be brought down. In spite of this, I found the book to be well written.

Jack Calihan nailed alpha Alaric. The inflection in his voice was both sexy and dominant. He did an excellent job as always. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Good Start

Narration was great. Calihan played each part perfectly.
First book by this author for me and this book is not at all what I expected or normally read. The book started strong. Loved Rowen. Her character was strong, independent and compassionate. At least until Alaric came into the picture. Rowen completed folded as soon as she met her mate. She goes from an admired leader and protector to being depleted, weak and mindless. This Dark Alpha male story just wasn’t appealing to me. Rowen couldn’t even speak without permission. He degraded her and embarrassed her in front of her people and his army. Worst part, Rowen told Alaric NO over-and-over and was ignored. I wasn’t a fan of how drastically her character changed. Her submissive training was basically repeated humiliation and belittlement. There are plenty of secondary characters that seemed interesting enough for more books. I’m just not sure if I will continue this series. I received this audiobook for free and I’m leaving this honest review.

Get ready for the spankings!!! Ouch, my butt hurts

Warning states: Warlord includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't listen to this audiobook.

So, this book is about the Alpha who needs to tame his mate who also happens to be an Alpha. Can't have two Alpha's mating. So, she must put on a dress and be ladylike. OUCH!! She has to totally change who she is. He breaks her repeatedly through beatings and embarrassments until she's obedient.

This book is very well written and the narration is just perfect. It's about the Alpha totally spanking the woman to submission. (I would call it rape... buy hey... Maybe a "NO" means "more spankings till you can't handle the pain".

Once an Alpha

Ronia was the only she-wolf alpha. She was victorious in every battlefield she encountered. Her men loved her as well as her pack. But she started having dreams of a warlord mating with her. She didn't want or need a mate. But the powers to be decided different. The warlord realized that she was his forever, dated mate. He had to conquer her pack with kindness and generosity. So, he took over without a fight. With a red bottom and a dominance she couldn't fight, she had to realize he was alpha male. He had his hands full trying to teach her that he was her master. This is a good book and the audio is magnificent. I have read several of Delta James books and the narrative adds a beautiful aspect the story. Jack Calihan has a very commanding, and lovely voice. I recommend this audio book to everyone who wants a different direction to reading. But keep in mind, it's for adults only! Oh la.la!! Beyond high heat!

heart breaking

I realize this is fiction, but if I was the women in this book I would have killed myself. If you are sensitive to having your whole life dominated and changed with no escape including sex this is not the book for you. I could not finish this book it made me cry not in a way you think, I want to rescue her. The narration is great.

Rough and dark shifter romance

This was a rough and dark shifter romance. However, it was strong on dark chemistry and not at all "sweet" or "romantic".

OMG a feminist nightmare lol

I admit to enjoying this book but I did spend most of the time wanting to batter the main male character lol The heroine of the story was great and I felt for her the entire book. I definitely recommend giving a few hours of your time 😁

Hot

This is a very hot book, yes the alphas are definitely to what most women want in real life but it’s hot in books. There is a lot of spanking etc which is well portrayed in the blurb. Will definitely be one I will listen to again

Delightfully medieval

I absolutely agree with some of the reviewers saying this story was medieval in how men treated women in this supernatural world Delta James created as a background for this story. On the other hand though it was everything the blurb offered so no surprise at all. Both Rowan and Alaric were good and strong characters. Loyal to the pack and destined for each other. I liked very much this somewhat dystopian twist of the supernatural world. It gave some freshness to the story. Warlord has a satisfactory ending but I'd love to find out where the series is headed.

Jack Calihan's narration was superb. He used well distinguishable voices for both male and female characters. I loved his pace and clean spoken words. He was the perfect choice for this book.

Not What I expected

This was a good story but I didn't like how Rowan the female Alpha a pack for five years was broken down and humiliated, then expect to be in love with the same person. I Enjoyed the story all the same, even though it was hard to like any of the men in this story.

Had great story but missed some targets

This is a dark erotica shapeshifter romance with trigger warnings, with non-consensual punish so please beware and proceed with caution. I liked the story overall, Rowan and Alaric's story is not a sweet one, it's different with lots of mystery and drama. The dialogue could be improved the overall plot is interesting and since I love very dark stories this was up to my alley. I think it had some things that were a bit contradictory, building a strong heroine and tearing her down, having an alpha submission is not what I expected, setting that aside, also the male goes on degrading the female, and yet he says he loves her in the next minute, I wish it took more time to get the male to express that feeling.

Mistakes misogyny for dominance

This made me physically gag in places. There’s nothing wrong with a little kink and dominance.. but that’s not what this is. The male character degrades and belittles the leading lady at every step. Telling her she’ll now be his mate and rule at his side whilst making her subservient to absolutely everyone. He clearly dismissed her as a person and only values what’s between her legs rather than her ears.

Disappointing

This started out well. A strong female MC who had taken over as Alpha leader of her pack after her father died.

She came across as mature - putting the safety and needs of her pack and sister before her own future happiness. She then turned into a weak putz by the end.

Then comes the Warlord. I enjoy reading about submission in the bedroom and strong alpha men but this guy was just a misogynistic asshole.

There was little to no acknowledgement of Rowan's abilities or strength. He just humiliated her and basically turned her into his f#$k toy. Spanking is one thing but doing it in front of people to ensure maximum humiliation is a turn off.

Totally ignoring the word no and telling her it was his right to do whatever he pleased is rape not domination. Trying to hide that behind the whole "fated mate" concept and suggesting she climaxes constantly is just bad writing.

The narrator did a fantastic job.
