The Timber Valley pack has a terrible reputation. Word is their males are dominant, kinky, and possessive – and Josephine’s best friend from college is being forced to marry one? No way!
Curvy wolf shifter Josephine Southpaw’s got the perfect solution. Using a magic charm, she’ll disguise herself as the slender, beautiful Camille on her wedding day – while Camille hightails it out of town with the wolf she really loves. Of course, the Alpha will ditch Josephine the second he gets her back to the wedding suite and sees what his chubby bride really looks like. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, for starters, Alpha Maxwell Battle is smokin’ hot. And he takes one look at Josephine and vows to never let her go – but he’s going to punish her for her trickery in deliciously sexy ways. And finally, Josephine’s friends keep staging well-intentioned rescue attempts, but she’s no longer sure she wants to be rescued.
But Josephine’s not the only one with secrets. It soon becomes very clear that Maxwell’s hiding something big, a secret that puts not only Josephine’s heart but her life at risk.
Bride of the Alpha by Georgette St. Clair is book 1 in a new series called The Timber Valley Pack. It’s just a small little story about 153 pages or so and I was able to hammer it out in just a few short of hours. It’s pretty good. I really like the story itself and the characters are fantastic! … and yummy! I mean alphas and wolf shifters? C’mon, what’s not to like right? Josephine pretended to be her friend Camille to save her from an arranged marriage by her brutal uncle to a strange alpha wolf from the Timber Valley Pack named Maxwell. Maxwell turned out to be a very scrumptiously delicious yummy alpha wolf who decided that he didn’t want to let Josephine go even after he realized that she was not in fact Camille. Josephine had other ideas about this, however, which makes for a very fun cat and mouse (or in this case wolf and rabbit) game between the two. Josephine’s awesome! I wish she had gotten a nickname along the way like Jo or Joey or something because the name “Josephine” is too old fashioned a name and doesn’t really suit her I don’t think, but regardless she’s a great heroin. LOL She’s spunky and takes no crap from anybody. It’s got a little different Wolf Pack and Elder dynamic that I haven’t really seen before, but that doesn’t make it bad. A lot of things were similar to other wolf stories but there were a couple of things that were totally different. It’s kind of refreshing to see something a little different. There was a nice twist to the story that I wasn’t expecting at all. Usually I can see them coming a mile away and this one totally floored me. That was cool! Love that when that happens. I don’t like stories being too predictable. My only real complaint is that there were a lot of unanswered questions about Camille in the end. I know this isn’t her story and it’s Josephine’s, but I think her story should have been tied up a bit better… then again, maybe since this is the first book in the series we may hear from her a bit more later. All in all… not too bad of a story. A nice little quick read. I enjoyed it!
