Blurb From Goodreads:
The first four parts of the Wicked Wolf Shifters serial: Cassandra & Trevor’s story
Full-length book with a HEA; no cliffhangers!
Surrendered to the Pack 1
For centuries, Cassandra Wakefield’s isolated mountain town has offered an annual female sacrifice to a dangerous pack of wolf shifters. This year, Cassie lost the draw–and must willingly surrender herself to them, body and soul. She’s nervous as hell but intrigued…especially by the riveting alpha.
Wicked Mountain Pack Alpha Trevor Reginald’s role is simple: take the surrender’s virginity and fulfill his duty. But the beautiful, cheeky woman stirs something in Trevor he fights to deny. For Cassie and all the wolf shifters are in for a huge surprise–one Cassie might not survive after she is surrendered to the pack.
Claimed by the Pack 2
Cassandra Wakefield’s life will never be the same again. She lost the town draw and had to willingly surrender herself, body and soul, to the Wicked Wolf Shifters Pack. But something unheard of happened during the traditional initiation ceremony. Something amazing, shocking…and very much against the rules.
Pack alpha Trevor’s life has been irrevocably rocked. What the gorgeous, impertinent Cassandra means to him should be an impossibility. Allowing her into his bed, his life, and his heart will utterly change everything. But not even this always-in-control alpha can predict what will happen after Cassandra is formally claimed by the pack.
Taken by the Pack 3
Realizing a human surrender was actually his mate rocked Trevor’s world. It’s also slowly unlocking his scarred heart. But even being a powerful alpha doesn’t mean he can protect her from those who have their own desperate agenda…
Snatched by the enraged wolves who will never accept a human mate for their alpha, Cassie is about to die at their lethal jaws. Even her gorgeous, badass alpha mate, Trevor, can’t save her now–this time, she’s on her own. Cassie’s been taken by the pack, and her time is about to run out.
Mated to the Pack 4
Just when things seem to settle down for Cassie and Trevor, ugly pack politics threaten everything again. But Cassie is much stronger than she ever believed–especially when she discovers she has a secret weapon that might save not only her life, but her sexy mate’s heart and soul as well.
Trevor doesn’t believe in fate. But meeting Cassandra showed him that destiny is stronger than fate. Particularly when destiny is a curvy, amazing woman who is more than a match for his dark, hardened ways–if only he can allow her in before he loses not only himself, but the captivating woman who was destined to be his.
This started out a little weird for me with the “sacrifice” of the town girls and how they have to stay virgins and seem to become sex slaves to the wolves. Turns out that’s not completely true and after the initial “oh hell no” going through my head it took me a bit to get into the story. The only reason it was weird to me is because it takes place in present time and I understand the fear of the huge wolves but in this day and age I just don’t see them staying somewhat hidden with technology, smartphones, and the internet being the way it is. That being said, the story really grew on me and I’m so thankful I got to read them all together since each book ends in a cliffhanger, and boy are they doozies. I feel in love with the characters and their development was awesome. Cassie starts out with the normal fear since these wolves are huge (like in Twilight) but she is so snarky and curious that those override her fear. Trevor (my new book boyfriend, hands off lol) is the alpha of the pack, so of course there are appearances that have to be upheld. Because of his past and the pressures of being alpha he doesn’t embrace Cassie as a mate normally does. It was exciting watching them grow together to become the best alpha mates to such a huge pack. I can’t wait to read more about these shifters!
