As a submissive, Zach stayed out of pack issues. He showed up when it was required, but for the most part, he stuck with those like him. When he comes across a business card of a man selling his kind, Zach has to step up or step aside.
She was a girl without a name, a pet to the man who owned her. Loneliness was the only thing she could count on in this life. Others like her came and were sold within twenty-four hours. There was no use getting attached when they would be leaving her alone once more. And then he showed up…
Zach brought her a name, an identity. He was nothing like the others before him and promised her freedom. It was a promise too good to be true.
You’ve been reading about slaves in our so-called civilised society in London, where he we have slaves of the more exotic kind. It seems, that even in London, people keep slaves to do their ‘dirty’ work eg housework and so on, but in this book they use shifters as exotic pets and train them to behave, and often use them sexually as well.
To obtain such a slave you need to go to an auction and here a member of the pack finds out about one and acquires a slave – to free her of course! and to close down the slave ring if he can.
Again a rather different story-line within this series and nicely written.

He wanted to meet her, to know the true name of the woman who had become his best friend. Canidea’s fight hits close to home and Vince gets caught in the crossfire. With everyone focused on the enemy, will they even think to look for him in the least likely of places? Lee’s carefully balanced secrets come crashing down around her as her wolf fights for control. Vince is the only one she can rely on to save her from her worst possible self, but who will save him? Lee’s plight is of her own making. Can she find the redemption she requires or is forgiveness just too far out of reach?
When the geek has to come out of hiding. and be the person she really is – but who is that? And do other people recognise her?
A nice romance within this series looking at another of the more minor characters.
Adirondack Pack, #1.5
paranormal, mythology, romance
There is a man in her bed and Sadie isn’t sure how she feels about that. The wolf she once considered a pet is now her mate. She needs time to process but Owen feels it is his duty as alpha to help them along into a happy marriage, starting with their honeymoon. For the next week, Sadie will only have Tyson for company as they hike through the Adirondack Mountains. Figuring out sleeping arrangements with only one extra-large sleeping bag will turn out to be the least of their problems as Tyson informs her that someone has been pursuing them since the very beginning.
Sadie has now married Tyson – now that he has been tamed and is no longer feral he can become a good mate for her.
Sadie, as explained in previous books, was not born a werewolf and it is taking her a time to get adjusted to her new situation especially now that Tyson is no longer feeling the need to be Fred the ‘tame’ wolf for her.
Tyson of course, still has to perform his pack duties, which is again something that Sadie needs to get used to.

The truth is in the evidence. Follow your nose, keep an ear to the ground and don’t believe everything you hear. Tyson Cartwright has always known who he was and becoming the Adirondack Pack’s Enforcer was the goal from the very start. He loves his job, but not today. Someone in the pack isn’t who they say they are. It isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last that Tyson has to rid the pack of a spy. These are the people he calls his friends and family and one of them is lying to him. His gut has an idea but is it just because he doesn’t like the man his sister has taken up with or is there something more to Jack Naughton? For Jenny’s sake he better know for sure it’s Jack before dispensing justice because once a wolf goes over the line, there is no coming back.
Whilst recovering from my ‘little’ Xmas accident and being in and out of hospital for some time and in a lot of pain, I needed some light reading and this series provided me with that. Many paranormal stories were good reading fare amongst romances and other ‘chick’ literature.
This series was one that I particularly fell for all set around the Adirondack pack of werewolves.
I have previously reviewed book #1, but in fact there is a #0.5 prequel if you will. I have found that many authors write the prequel after the first couple of books are successful, so you don’t necessarily read in order.
Each wolf pack has a number of roles that are common to them all: Alpha, Beta, Elder, and Enforcer. This is the story of how and Enforcer was ‘born’.
Enforcers are the law in wolf packs. They keep order within the pack, at as detectives and represent the law. Often they are also used for more esoteric purposes such as torture during a period of warfare or political unrest and in-fighting. Thus hey need to be not only very strong and skilled in fighting, but also sadistic to a degree. Not just being unafraid of pain themselves, but willing to inflict it n others.
Tyson was the Adirondack pack’s enforcer. “He was protector, detective, judge and jury”, and if need be executioner, because “once a wolf went over the line, there was no coming back”.
So the war with the Canidae begins and his sister Jenny gets involved through her friendship with Jack – who is not all he seems.
Tyson has to develop his emotions to understand this situation as he finds that he is unable to cope with his sister’s actions.
