Series: Wolves of Whiskey Hollow #1
Title: Charmed Wolf
Author: Lia Davis

Published: May 9th, 2017
What an exciting start to another series! With an intriguing storyline involving magical powers, dilemmas, shifters and witches. The fraternal Hutson twins are both Alpha shifters who also inherited magical powers but these powers are so strong that Dana fears losing her control over them which could endanger her twin and their pack. She had an arranged mate but that was disastrous and only ended with his death. Now she’s going to leave Whiskey Hollow, hoping to form her own pack.
Soon after arriving in her isolated refuge in neutral territory, she encounters Cooper Reed. He’s a member of the Bloodrose Creek Pack, which is led by her late mate’s family who blame her for her mate’s demise. Their alpha is out for revenge against her but this shifter is defying the pack’s enforcers, determined to protect his sister and the youngster they have taken in after she was made to watch her mother being killed….
Both sense that the other is their mate but she’s determined not to be forced into another relationship after her disastrous experiences. He’s not ready to find his mate in the midst of all the turmoil as he knows he could endanger her. As more secrets are revealed the two need to work together to keep themselves and the innocent members of the pack from becoming more victims of the deranged alpha and his followers, but with her powers out of control will they be able to succeed or cause even more problems?
This is a fast paced, engaging and enthralling start to a brilliant new paranormal series. The characters are brought to life in the pages of the story and there is plenty of angst, danger and deceit to keep the reader turning pages. I particularly liked how the key events from this story are brought to a satisfying conclusion but other threads are left unravelled, making me keen to read sequels – just hope we don’t have to wait too long for them! If you enjoy action packed paranormal romantic suspense, this could well be a great book for you, too!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Power is her greatest weakness, but love could be her salvation.
Dana Hutson is about to make one of the toughest decisions of her life: walking away from her twin and her Pack. But the anger of her late mate’s betrayal burns deep, and her guilt threatens to push her over the edge. Combined with the magic she was born with intensifying to a lethal level, she has no choice but to leave Whiskey Hollow in search of her inner peace. But what she finds could be more than she bargained for.
Cooper Reed will do anything to keep his sister and adopted daughter safe from the demented rogue Alpha of the Bloodrose Creek Pack. That includes killing anyone who threatens his family and going on the run. He is willing to do whatever it takes.
He isn’t prepared to find his mate in the midst of the chaos.
When even more secrets and dangers come to light, Dana and Cooper must band together to stop the rogue and his minions before all is lost. But will their bond be enough to harness the power needed to defeat such a foe?
