Publisher's Summary

As a werewolf Alpha’s daughter, Sophie Gregory was raised to understand she has two important purposes in life - to be wed and bred. When she fails at the first, she wants nothing to do with the second, even if it means spending the rest of her life alone.

After fleeing a disastrous arranged marriage, she seeks shelter with a neighboring pack. There's just one problem.... Her new pack is home to the handsome, roguish Remy Arsenault (serial dater and notorious womanizer). Remy makes her laugh...and her heart pound. She’s not looking for commitment, but she might just be up for a fling. That's all Remy is offering, anyway, right?

Remy has a reputation for being a player, but in truth, he's ready to settle down. Too bad that's the very last thing Sophie is interested in. He will do anything to win the heart of the woman who makes his head spin with lust - including seducing her with the most delicious sex imaginable.

Sophie wants a fling. But what if he's ready for so much more? She needs to feel safe, loved, and protected. That's a job description he's more than willing to fill. But when a danger from Sophie's past threatens to keep them apart, he might have to save her life before he can win her heart.

Book 2


This is the second book in series.. Remy is a telepath and some times put down for the gift he has. Sophia is an alpha's daughter who is forced to marry, an abusive alpha son. The audio book's story has a somewhat different take on shifter powers.

Remy💘Sophie! Great Story & Audible Listen🎧

This is a great PNR, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines that are engrossing from start to end. I enjoyed Amy Pennza’s writing style, she grabbed my attention right from the story. She creates an imaginative world where shifters live in packs and claim their territories. I liked the world dynamics of these shifters, the Alpha rules and each territory lives by the beliefs they choose to follow, old school or new. Sophie's father was not happy to have a daughter he wanted a son to follow his footsteps as Alpha leader. So he used Sophie as a bartering chip to gain power, setting up an arranged marriage with neighboring shifters, the son of the Alpha of that territory. Unfortunately that shifter is abusive and Sophie refuses to complete the mating ritual with him. Remy met Sophie when she was on her way to her new husband to be. The two clicked, he sensed her unhappiness and tried to cheer her up and encourage her. He is a telepath and was able to communicate with her thru her mind. Even after they handed her over to her new pack he could not get her out of his head, he also lost his man-whoring ways, finding no interest in other women. Then he hears her calls for help telepathically and he searches to find her, when found she was severely injured, she ran away from her abuser. He takes her back to his cabin and vows to protect her and not allow her to go back. She has other plans though. I loved how their story played out, there is never a dull moment, there’s plenty of drama, twists, some angst and heartfelt emotions as well hot romance. I highly recommend this fast paced story, it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone. Amy Pennza, thank you for this great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Sophie James is a terrific narrator and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to.

Passionate shifter romance

Entertaining wolf shifter romance. I liked that the shifters have other abilities too; like super speed or telepathy.

The narrator did a good job. A clear, solid performance and she had a nice tone to her voice.

Sophie has been forced into an arranged bonding, but before it can fully be completed, she runaways because her intended abuses her. It’s kind of weird because they got married, but not fully. It’s like having the ceremony, but not signing the marriage certificate. Sophie runs to Remy’s pack for help, but the archaic wolf laws cause problems; men who like to keep women down and subservient. These wolf females really need to put those jerks in their place!

Sophie and Remy met before her “marriage” and had a connection, but obviously they couldn’t do anything about it. They have a mental link since Remy is a telepath, which connects them even further. Lots of danger from not only Sophie’s old pack, but that of her abusive “husband”.

Also, Remy doesn’t exactly have the best reputation. Remy has a reputation for being a manwhore, so he’s not taken very seriously, and telepaths are looked on as weaker. It’s to be expected that there will be negative talk when you sleep around, so no one is thinking much of Remy intentions towards Sophie; not even her.

I liked Sophie; I do wish she were a little stronger, but I suppose that has to do with her upbringing. Remy is a sweetheart and I love how protective he is. I didn’t like that whole scenario where he has taken multiple women to get styles; that was just weird, but I really appreciated that it seemed like he hadn’t been with anyone else since he met Sophie. They have some great chemistry and passion. Some hot stuff! The story flows nicely and there’s a bit of action; which I always enjoy, so overall, a entertaining read. I haven’t read the first book, so I’ll have to check that out next! This can be read as a standalone, but does have some storyline with the characters from the previous book.

Loving this series

I’ve really enjoyed the world Amy Penza has created. I love that not everything is perfect. Love that the good daughter decided to rebel and not follow orders but can she tame the player that is Remy. Will the danger that follows her keep them apart. This story is fast paced and gripping and has a wonderful narration.

What a Wolf Dares

Narrated by Sophie James, What a Wolf Dares is a fast paced book , with easily relateable characters, enjoyable plot and good world building.

Sophie does justice to both Remy and Sophie. I admired Sophie for having the courage to leave and end an abusive relationship.

The shifter world isn't easy for female characters and Sophie showed great strength.

The romance was a delight. good balance between action and romance will keep readers/listeners entertained.

Commitment to Pack, Family and Your True Mate

I am absolutely LOVING this series! The first book had several twists and turns where one of the mates knew what was meant to and the otter fought it...but this story involves a previous book secondary character, Remy...a love them once and move on..charming and loving, but not interested in a mate.
Sophie is an alpha’s daughter who is basically sold to another pack, matching talents with the alpha’s son...she encounters Remy when she is sent to marry...they connect but don’t understand...Remy is no longer hooking up and Sophie thinks of the playboy wolf in the Two months they are separated.
There is action, suspense, romance, loving the couple..reengaging with previous secondary characters and the h bd H from the first book.
The building of the story and character development..the families, understanding pack life.living in their territories, among humans and keeping their secrets..I didn’t want to stop listening and disappointed there isn’t another story to listen to..esp with the narrator...who repeats from the first story and is an incredible storyteller..Wow she is great.
Grab these books if you enjoy shifters, alpha’s, strong women, definite unexpected twists! well worth the time, money or credit.

Audiobook Obsession

This was okay. An alphas daughter who wanted nothing but to live her own life. But she has to follow the pack rules. It was interesting how they did this.

Sometimes the ❤ wants what the ❤ wants...

Sophie is an alpha's daughter and as such she knows what her duties are. But what happens if she has a special connection with another wolf shifter on the way to her arranged marriage? And what if her soon to be husband is abusive? Well in Sophie's case she somehow avoids the spiritual marriage or Lux Catena and escapes. Then her mind inadvertantly summons Remy, a shifter with telepathic abilities, before collapsing on him. Oh! And Remy is the shifter she met on her way to her marriage and he has a reputation as a serial dater.

Remy, of course, had connected with her too and does not think twice about sheltering and protecting Sophie. Then he finds out her body isn't just battered from her escape but from abuse. And his protective instinct only deepens

I enjoyed the chemistry between Remy and Sophie. I love how they are imperfect and therefore perfectly matched. Their interactions are cheeky and yet full of sweet tenderness. Listening to this audiobook has definitely inspired me to listen to the other books in the series. I certainly love a good shifter romance!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

A good shifter story

I haven't read (or listened to) the first book of the series but that didn't cause any issues at all. The book was easily read as standalone. I liked the author's concept of the pnr world. The world, customs and rules of wolf shifters was unusual enough to make the story enjoyable. Also the characters were easy to like. I liked how Remy and his pack fought for the outcast and embraced them in their pack. I liked the way Remy treated Sophie with respect and love until she too realized and was able to accept her own feelings.

Sophie James did a good job with this narration. Her voice was a bit subdued and sweet, perfect for the female character but I would've liked a male narrator for male POVs better.

Even better than the first!

This book was fantastic! I liked it even more than the first one. The storyline was sexy, romantic and really drew me in. The characters pulled at my heart. I adored their story. I really hope there is more to this series!

Sophie is not my first choice for narrators. Her style just isn't quite right for me. I like a little more life, expression and passion. Her narration is much more subdued. I do feel like she brought a little more energy to this book than the first though and it really helped with how much I enjoyed listening.

DELICIOUS, THRILLING, BEAUTIFUL and IMPORTANT

(I was given a free review copy in exchange for an honest review this review is in no way influenced by the author)
This book was amazing!! It was beautiful!! I Cannot Express how deeply it has affected me. This story deserves the utmost love and appreciation. This book is a reflection of what our society is today, what it was yesterday and what it is yet to become. The story is told in a very basic, enthralling manner, covering much deeper topics, conflicts and societal issues in such a light-hearted and entertaining way. I could not stop listening to this. I completed this 7 hour audiobook at 1.4x speed in 2 sittings. This thrilling story sucked me in from the very start. Each chapter is short and ends with a BOOM!! I just needed to know what happens next!! This book was no ordinary paranormal erotica, I was blown away!! We follow our main character Sophie who has grown up with high expectations being an alphas daughter. She is expected to marry an alpha. After fleeing her abusive marriage and her plans of escaping to Europe were left in turmoil she finds sanctuary in New York.In New York she finds Remy Arsenault; thean she met the day she was being escorted to her wedding. Sophie isn't looking for commitment. All she wants is a fling and that's what Remy wants too. Right? but that's not true Remy wants to settle down with Sophie despite his reputation for being a player, due to his despised so called useless gift of telopathy. Sophie's father isn't going to let her mate with a telopath besides he wants this alliance with Sophie's husband more than anything. what happens when 2 powerful packs form an alliance and call for war against New York? this was the most addicting delicious and thrilling erotic suspense I have ever read. I cannot recommend it enough. The detailed description brings the world to life I felt like I was right there. The narrators voice was perfect for this story. The characters are so real you can almost touch them. I loved everything about this story there was nothing I disliked. I can't wait until we get the next one and I can't wait to read the gritty details of Max and lizette's story !!
