One minute wolf shifter Katrina Hagan is shoe shopping with her packmate Joy, the next minute she’s being carried off by the Alpha of the Killingworth pack. Now she’s a hostage, a pawn in the negotiations between two rival packs – so why can’t she act like it?
Her kidnapper, Maddox “Mad Dog” Killingworth, has a reputation as a ruthless killer – she should be petrified.
Instead, within days of being taken prisoner, the sassy she-wolf has Maddox’s pack eating out of her hand and she’s making Maddox’s inner wolf howl with need every time she saunters by. Too bad their packs have been mortal enemies for generations, and she’s fighting tooth and claw to resist her burning desire for Maddox.
Just when it seems like Maddox might finally be breaking down her barriers, it turns out that Katrina’s pack hasn’t been playing fair, and a shocking betrayal threatens to wipe out Maddox’s entire pack. How can Maddox choose between the love of his life…and the life of his pack?
Taken By The Alpha is the 5th book in the Timber Valley Pack series by Georgette St. Clair.
I really like this series. The books are more novellas rather than full length novels, which have their up and downs. I love them because you can knock them out pretty quickly.. but I also dislike them sometimes because right when you get invested in a story and it starts to get really good it’s suddenly over.
That’s what happened to me with this one. I was just starting to get right into the story and then it was suddenly over. Having said that, it wasn’t missing anything. No cliffy endings or anything like that, but it just left me wanting more.
I have a tendency to really fall for Georgette St. Clair’s characters pretty quickly and I hate having to let them go so fast, but at the same time the story was really good. She jammed quite a tale in a few pages and it was really fun to read. Her dialogue and witty humour is so good. Plus the hotness level was right up there.
Yeah, I’m a fan of this series. I know based on this review and previous others I may not seem like I am, but really I love the characters and can’t wait to hear more tales about them. I guess it’s just because I always want more… and maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
