Amelia Baxter’s got one simple assignment: she is to sneak through the Breach into the universe where werewolves exist and observe, document, and report back. But when the sassy-mouthed, chubby college professor discovers that she’s crossed over right in the middle of the annual Alpha Claiming Festival, she’s fascinated. And when two handsome Alpha brothers beg her to spend the weekend with them in their Mating Cabin, she can’t say no. Of course, it’s all for research, right? After all, no human from her world has ever had this opportunity to get this close and personal with werewolves before!

Unfortunately, leaving behind two deliciously sexy Alphas who have locked their sights on her as their Forever Mate isn’t as easy as she thought it would be…and when she crosses back over to her world, she walks straight into a nightmare of betrayal and deadly threats to all she loves most.
Will her Alphas get to her in time, or will secrets from another world prove to be even more deadly than those who seek to betray her?

My ThoughtsGreen swirls

Twin Alphas:  Claimed by Georgette St. Clair is a nice little read.  It’s a novella and I’m not entirely sure if it’s a standalone or not. I’m guessing that it’ll become part of a series based on how we met some secondary characters in this book and they’re screaming to have their story told.  I could be wrong, but I hope not.

Amelia Baxter can cross the Breach into the other universe where werewolves thrive.  She has been able to since she was a child with her younger sister. She is a college professor and her job right now is to go across and observe and come back to report her findings.  When she crosses she realizes that she crossed smack dab in the middle of the annual werewolf claiming festival.  Two alpha males aka Twin Alphas has got their sites on her and they don’t plan to let her go easily.  She does not know the rules of this universe and she can’t stay.  She must report back but what’s the worst that could happen with two of the hunkiest men she’s ever seen?  When she does cross back home she finds things were not what she thought and she’s in danger.

I really like Georgette St. Clair’s style of writing.  She’s got passion, suspense and a lot of humour all packed into a quick little read.  She knows how to hit on all the pertinent points and tie everything up nicely even though it’s a small little book.  Some people have a hard time doing that with a full length novel but it’s much more difficult to get everything in there in a short piece. She does it very well.

I love the idea of the parallel universe in this book.  I read a lot of shifter/werewolf books and this is new.  It’s very inventive and I like it.  There is a huge element of danger revolving around the whole “Breach”.  Both with what can come in and what can go out. It’s a great idea.

Ms. St. Clair also writes really good characters who you can really relate to and fall in love with. Which brings me to something I didn’t really care for.  I as a reader really fell for all three of the main characters (Amelia, Holt and Clayton), however, I didn’t find that there was much connection between them as mates.  They  liked each other and spent a night in the mating cabin, but to me it felt more like a “one-nighter” rather than a night with their “forever mate”… View Spoiler » I just think there should have been something a little more profound between these characters so that we felt the connection as readers.

Other than that though, I really enjoyed it and I hope it becomes a series.
