My Review:

This is the second book in a series and I hadn’t read the first one but still thoroughly enjoyed this one. It is a different take on shifter romance with two alpha leaders from opposing warring packs having an arranged marriage to help bring peace  . . . . but will this be a match made in heaven or a reason for even more war?

This is an intriguing paranormal romance with many different elements coming in to play. How can two alphas agree to marry for the sake of their packs when they’ve never met before? Can they actually become true mates? Tala is a strong alpha in her own right, how will she respond to someone else trying to tell her what to do without discussing options? How will her pack respond to the new alliance? So many questions and you’ll just have to read it for yourself to discover the answers! I found this a fascinating read, with plenty of surprises, and such a feisty female lead! I highly recommend this quick read to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances with plenty of action and suspense as well as steamy scenes. I’m looking forward tor reading more in this series in future! I didn’t feel I’d missed out on lots by not having read the first book before this but confess that I’ve now been and bought myself a copy of it as I enjoyed this one so much.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.


The Montagues and Capulets have nothing on the Canis and Banes wolf packs. The two have been feuding for ages. The brutal murder of the Banes’ alpha only added fuel to the fire. And now there’s only one way to bring peace—the current alphas of each pack, Marrok and Tala, need a mating of convenience.

Tala has her doubts. A thousand of them.

Never mind that Marrok drives her body to levels of desire her vibrator has trouble keeping up with. If she can’t get her inner wolf—or her people—on board, forget peace, because she’ll lose the tenuous control she has over the Canis pack. Her new mate is just so damn alpha. He’d better learn to play nice or Tala will have to show him who’s boss.

But Marrok has plans of his own, and nothing and no one, not even Tala herself, can resist an alpha…

This novella was previously self published as The Worse for Were but has undergone a complete re-edit. Scenes were added, things were changed, but the kissing still remains!
