Roark Grayhawk’s past haunted the lone wolf. He’d become an enforcer to protect those weaker but had failed to protect his sister and she had paid the ultimate price.

Now, another woman needed his help. A woman Roark had tried desperately to ignore. He didn’t want the love of a mate. He didn’t deserve the love of a mate.

Curvy she-wolf Emma Jones has tried her whole life to make herself invisible to her powerful father—the alpha of the Blue Pine Pack.

Excerpt

Tonight’s run had been about saying goodbye. She’d visited her favorite places, planning to end the night watching Roark’s cabin until sunrise. She didn’t know exactly what her father had planned, but she knew she had to be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice. Because she knew, whatever her father had decided, it would not be in her best interest to go along with his plan. She had a little money stashed away and she could start over someplace else. Despite what her father thought, she was a hard worker, she could make it. She was going to be forced to mate and leave the pack anyway; forced to say goodbye to Roark, why not do it on her own terms. Maybe some other pack would take her in. It was difficult for a wolf to make it alone. Roark was living proof that even the most reckless of wolves needed the structure of a pack in order to survive.

For so long, her hope had been that Roark would recognize her as his mate and claim her. Get past whatever it was that had made him withdraw from life. She’d fixated on that dream so much that she’d never considered what to do if it never happened. And certainly had never imagined the ultimatum that her father had thrown down. Perhaps if she were a more passionate woman, her wolf a stronger animal, she could seduce Roark, garnering, if not his love, then his protection.

But she wasn’t that woman. Never would be. She had no confidence in her value as a wolf. No confidence in her desirability as a woman. She’d grown up hearing the fairytale version of wolf mating where the male would risk everything for the love of his mate. Vanquish any demon. Fight any foe.

She sighed. Her life wasn’t a fairy tale. She’d wished for her own prince for too many years. Being a romantic was dangerous, Emma had discovered. She felt like she was now fighting a wicked stepmother and a nasty frog whose name was Brad. She shuddered. The man that her father had given her to in marriage was worse than any toad.

It was archaic. But it was still within his rights as her father and her alpha.

Thunderlight by Adrienne Woods

Thunderlight (The Dragonian Series #2)Thunderlight by Adrienne Woods
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Thunderlight is book two in The Dragonian Series. I was so excited to get an early copy, and I have to say I love the cover. Now, on to more important things. Does book two answer questions that we were left with from Firebolt? The answer would be some of them were answered along with plenty of surprises and new questions that need to be answered. If you were a fan of the first book then this book will not disappoint.

Summer break is over. Now, Elena Watkins must return with her friends and other students to Dragonia Academy. Elena is still struggling with the death of Brian during the mission to recover the King of Lion sword. She is also plagued with nightmares. What do they mean? Could they possibly foretell Elena's future or a new mission she will have to take? Elena and Lucian's relationship is heating up despite the pressures from his family and Arianna. Paul, a Wyvern, is a new student at school. Wyverns are thought to be all dark and dangerous. Paul claims to be different and wants to start over at the academy. Can he be trusted especially when he says Elena is his rider? Will this be the wedge that comes between Elena and Lucian?

Adrienne Woods does a good job continuing to develop the characters that we know and also introduces us to some new ones. I will say I went through a wide range of emotions reading this one...happiness, bitterness, doubt, anger, betrayal and sadness. I could not believe it ended like that! Why? I hope that by some chance it is a mistake. Book three can't come fast enough for me. I will admit, the story slowed down a little in the middle, which is why it is a four star instead of a five star rating. It ending with a bang! I would definitely recommend this book and this series.

 Jenna Fox is a civilized hillbilly, mother, author and wife residing in Eastern Tennessee. She enjoys reading and jotting down poetry in her spare time. Besides juggling a busy family life, Fox reviews and critiques for other authors and crafts her own dark erotic tales. Stories always feature a mysterious alpha male with unexpected twists to shock the reader. She believes in HFN and HEA endings, although not always in a romantic or conventional way.

Her work is born from real life experiences, an overactive imagination and a consuming caffeine addiction. Sometimes she finds herself writing sex scenes on fast food napkins and store receipts while waiting in traffic, but she’s always guilty of keeping her mind in the gutter. Fox is a listener of hard rock music and a watcher of classic slasher films. In short, she’s a writer, a storyteller, able to make a boo-boo all better with just one kiss and a proud, world class expert at screwing up recipes and scaring away closet monsters. She believes in ghosts and God and is absolutely convinced chocolate soothes the savage beast.

4 out of 5 stars  

Abby was struggling her way through life until she met Dorian, the answer to her prayers – or so she thought.  Dorian promised to make all her dreams come true.  The only thing she must do in return is surrender herself to him completely. 

This short story really packed a punch.  At only 35 pages (approximately), it was fast paced and full of action and suspense.  I would love it if the author had plans to delve deeper into Abby's story, as there is so much more I would love to see from her.  I additionally thought the character development was fabulous, which is really a compliment because in short stories it's really hard to create complete, well rounded characters. 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
