Publisher's Summary

Lizette Butler has the only thing she ever wanted - freedom from her pack Alpha, Maxime Simard, and the ability to decide her own fate. She and Max have a turbulent history and a powerful - if unwilling - attraction. Unfortunately, mere distance can’t stop the past from crashing back in to disrupt her life. Nor can it stop the rush of desire that overwhelms her the minute she sees him again. Her body may crave his physical seductions, but her heart will never let her love him.

As leader of the New York territory, Max has everything - wealth, power, and an army of wolves ready to jump at his command. But a mistake he made five years ago may have cost him the only thing worth living for: Lizette. He also knows something Lizette doesn't- she possesses a rare ability that makes her a target and a prize. Max can command Lizette to return to the pack, but he can’t command her trust...or her love. And if he can’t heal the rift between them, he may lose her forever.

FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The narration was amazing, and I have to give Sophie James props for her wonderful French accent. This book made me very happy because of the strong heroine and interesting plot. I was engaged throughout the entire book and was grateful to have a book that could finally keep my interest.

I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND LISTENING TO IT, BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS 100% WORTH THE CREDIT. READ IT BECAUSE YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

Intriguing

This is the first shape shifter book I’ve ever listened to and I was totally into it. It was hot!! I am not usually into any kind of sci-fi stuff but I’m sure I will listen to this again. The Narrator was spot on with these characters. Loved the entire experience.

I found this audiobook to be very good. It has a great combination of romance, suspense and drama. The narrator has done a wonderful job of bringing each character to life.

Good Wolf Story

This author was new to me and I enjoyed her book. Max, the alpha, orders Lizette back to the pack from her well ordered life living as a human. Lizette was very angry because she did not want to return and Max would not let her go. She tried to escape for a little while so she could think but Max tracked her down. I love when Max confessed how he felt about her and he told her about her special power. This turned out to be a pretty good book that did not have too much suspense. It was great when Lizette came into her own strength which was a nice set up for the ending.

This is my first time listening to this narrator. She was pretty good with both male and female voices.

Alpha, Territory, Healer, Orphan...A New Life

Wow I really enjoyed this story and a new author and series for me. Plus Sophie James is a favorite narrator of mine..her husky voice draws a picture and feeling from each story she tells.
A girl whose parents were shifters living away from their pack died when she was young...mates one couldn’t live without the other...a family where the parents were so obsessed with each other the daughter had no place in their lives and had no idea she was a shifter.
In comes the young alpha of her pack when she’s been in foster care and brings her back to the pack to discover who she is.
A strong alpha who reigns over a very large area, he knows more about her, recognizes her as his mate..but gives her time to grown up. She doesn’t understand and hasn’t been told who or what her gift is..a healer...but special.
I enjoyed the secondary characters and anxiously await more audiobooks...especially if done by Sophie James...or someone just as talented..the story was great...More Please!

Was good...

but could have been better. That being said, what I think would have made this better, would have been having a male narrator as well. For being a single female narrator, she did an absolutely wonderful job. It was a good book and worth the credit, but it felt like it wasn't quite done. I'm no author, and couldn't write a book, but as an avid reader, it's just how it makes you feel at the end. It feels like it's missing something indefinable.

OH. EM. GEE !!!

So I’ll admit, in the big inning I was a bit lost, but once I got past the point of understanding the backlog and relationships, I couldn’t stop listening!!
This book had me hooked so bad that I finished it in one day! Lol
I was so entranced by everything going on that when the shocker came, I just about jumped out of my seat at work!
And OMG the intimate scenes!! Vividly described and detailed, it’s hard not to feel like your right. There!

I’m definitely ready for book 2!

It’s okay to be loved

Lizette (hoping I am spelling it right it’s audio) has been tossed around from home to home after the death of her parents and then when her fosters gave her to the wolf pack. After some events the alpha agrees to let her go to college and have her own life. Five years later she’s angry as can be when 5 hunters show up to bring her home. Don’t worry I didn’t give anything away. That’s the just the beginning. This books was engaging and pretty faced paced. Alot is happening both in the present and through flashbacks. The characters are lovable, well mostly and though I feel like the narrator did good it was a bit hard to keep her characters straight other then Max because he spoke in a French/English mix. There’s emotional turmoil both from the normal alpha feelings and the broken soul who isn’t sure of her place. The ending end isn’t a cliffhanger but you feel like there’s more to be said. The love story is complete but the over all story is not. I enjoyed it enough to add the next one to my TBR pile!

Alpha wolf & his mate

What a Wolf Desire is an excellent start to the Lux Catena Series. I love a good paranormal shapeshifter romance, especially one with a hot alpha. Both the storyline and characters are delightful; my attention was captured and held from start to end. Maxime is the Alpha Wolf and is aware that Lizette is his mate. Unfortunately, due to a rough childhood, Lizette is not very trustful, particularly of her own emotions. I definitely enjoyed listening to their journey to HEA.

Sophie James did a fantastic job narrating this audiobook. She captured the characters' personalities, emotions, and their chemistry very nicely. This was an entertaining listen and, I strongly recommend this audiobook to all paranormal romance readers and listeners.

Wolves

I really enjoyed this different take on the shifter world, and the mating process. She was raised human most of her life and then spent 5 years away from the pack, so her knowledge of pack life was minimal at best. He is the Alpha and never lead a human life, it’s like these two are from different cultures but yet they are the same. There is an age difference as well, but once the story gets going you don’t really pick up on that. Sophie does an excellent job with bringing this story to life, her accents and pitches are perfect!

Loved it!!

This was a great listen! I loved the dynamic of Max and lisette and how they fought to get to where they are at the end. My only complaint and this is totally a personal preference is I like when there is a male narrator or the narrator changes their voice more when playing multiple parts but honestly I would listen again just how it is.

Werewolf shifter romance with an interesting twist

Max knew Lizette was meant to be with him the first time he met her - Lizette was fifteen. Max had just rescued Lizette from fostering by humans and brought her back to live with other shifters. Fast forward and Lizette is twenty-four and in college and Max sends his wolves to bring her home. Max may have seemed like a jerk, but he had his reasons, he stayed in the background to let Lizette grow up and explore life. The story has action and love in good doses.

Great storyline but not my favorite narrator

I really enjoyed the storyline of the book. It was interesting, super sexy and well written. The author was able to include unique ideas into a shifter genre that is inundated with characters that follow a pretty stereotypical guideline. I'm really looking forward to picking up book two!

Sophie's narration style is not my favorite. For my personal taste I need more emotion portrayed, especially during the steamy scenes. It looses something for me when intenses of great emotion are read in a more or less monotone way. Give me all the feels please!!
