    4-4.5*s Okay, I’m hooked – book crack strikes again! As the synopsis tells us – Tambra Ellis’s world is about to be turned upside down when she is attacked by a wolfman, not believing that it was real, she resigns herself to the fact that she will probably die from the incident, even if a mysterious stranger has just done away with her attacker as she fades to black. It is only when she awakens days later that she meets her mysterious stranger – Marcus Valerian – and he’s about to rock her world i 4-4.5*s Okay, I’m hooked – book crack strikes again! As the synopsis tells us – Tambra Ellis’s world is about to be turned upside down when she is attacked by a wolfman, not believing that it was real, she resigns herself to the fact that she will probably die from the incident, even if a mysterious stranger has just done away with her attacker as she fades to black. It is only when she awakens days later that she meets her mysterious stranger – Marcus Valerian – and he’s about to rock her world in more ways than one – opening up her human mind to what else lives amongst them and now, she has become one…. A lycan to be precise. Not only is she the first bitten human to survive the turning, she is the hope for all Lycans whose numbers are dwindling…. Marcus is having trouble resisting this woman, he’s never had problems before and it couldn’t come at a worse time considering the leader of the opposition has the right to claim her as his mate….but will Marcus allow it? Both he & Tambra risk starting a war between Lycan & Vampires in an already unstable world when the Dark Breeds are turning feral and creating more violence, risking exposure – will Marcus and the rest of the Enforcers be able to keep the peace? Or is this just the beginning? I’m a sucker for these type of books - a good, quick and easy to read PNR with a great premise for not just one book but for a series, filled with interesting characters that you can really get behind in their endeavours. I loved what happened to Tambra because it really opened the world up straight away and introduced us to a whole lot of other species – vampire, Lycan, fae, etc.- and that world has it’s own governing body complete with enforcers of which Marcus is a leading figure. As we deal with Tambra’s change we also meet the leader of the Lycans – Temple Fox – who assumes he has a claim on her and because of Marcuss’ feelings for her, the animosity is bristling from the start which sets up a good rivalry. Plus, the attack on Tambra is just one of many in which a lot of the ‘Dark Breeds’ are turning feral and attacking humans, it’s something that Marcus and his crew are aware of and are investigating but throughout this, you will see just how far reaching this ‘disease’ is and it becomes the catalyst for the series threat which I have to say … is awesome! And through this we get a lot of action & violent confrontations so it’s always nice to have the romance as a balm to balance the harshness of what they’re up against. I enjoyed all of the characters, they all stood out and made me want to know more about them so I’m hoping for their books too. I also loved the connection between Tambra and Marcus, it ticks my boxes for more than one reason – opposing sides falling in love giving it a forbidden feel, a soul deep connection (I’m a massive soul mate fan!), great chemistry (I wanted more of them together), and some super charged smexytime… yep, it made me happy and I wanted them together, I was behind them all of the way and whilst I sort of knew where it was headed, I still thoroughly enjoyed getting there and will definitely be looking out for book 2.

I loved the interaction between all the characters and the sexual attraction between Tambra and Marcus. I thought it was neat where the story takes place in Las Vegas, a city of life and sin that stays awake 24/7, a place where any type of species could be lurking. It reminded me of watching the original TV Show CSI (Vegas) with paranormal twist. The world of the Dark Breed is ruled by the Tribunal and by its enforcers who keep the secret and protection of their existence from the human race. Marcus the Vampire is the leader of the Enforcers and with his team, Tegan the were-panther, Zeke the Atlantis Warrior, Adrian the Tuatha De’Danann – peace keeper, Ryes the Celt cursed by the goddess Morrigan, and Christophe the vampire they fill the pages with fights against a Lycan named Temple Fox and captures of rogue breeds as they try to figure out why and or what is causing them to turn rogue. . But the main goal of the Enforcers quickly becomes protecting Tambra until her rising (first shifting), however things turn and get interesting as things sizzle and heat up between Tambra and Marcus as he realizes she is his true mate. The story is exciting and had me smiling throughout the whole book. Great read, I look forward to reading more of Shannan Albrights work.

    3.5 stars. Starts off well with a lot of action and an intriguing plot. It has a nice mix of action, suspense, twists, and steamy romance. The story and the characters are interesting, but the pacing and story development lags a bit towards the end. Should be an interesting series with action and different types of paranormal characters. Full review available at http://www.bittenbybooks.com/. 3.5 stars.

    This was an interesting take on the paranormal world and how badly things could go if they were not in hiding in our modern world. I really enjoyed it and plan to read the next book in the series. It didn't get a 5 star from me because I really wanted to have more details on Tambra's background and the ending felt a bit rushed.

When she awakens three days later, what she learns rocks her world. When Marcus Valerian rescues Tambra literally from the jaws of death, and tenderly nurses her back to health, he soon realizes that, against all odds, Tambra is his one true love. Temple Fox, leader of the Lycans, is just arrogant enough to believe he can woo Tambra with his charm and good looks. They desperately need fertile females to strengthen the bloodline because the Lycan breed is on the verge of extinction. However, Marcus, who is a vampire and a member of an elite group called Enforcers, knows that the Lycans, facing extinction, will fight for Tambra by any means, fair or foul. Marcus is determined that Tambra must be allowed to make her own decisions and not be coerced into a relationship that is not of her choosing. This was a quick read for me as the author immediately set the stage with skin-tingling, hair-raising eeriness. I genuinely like Tambra. She is a Sassy, self-reliant heroine who doesn’t come across as too brash or sarcastic. I was drawn to her loyalty and dedication to duty. I would have liked to have felt a bit more of the unique flavor of Las Vegas as it is the backdrop for this adventure. Still, there were a few unexpected twists as the story unfolded which added to its allure, for me. This is the first book in a planned series by this author and, in my opinion, she is off to a promising start. Laurie Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance and More

There are things in this world that defy explanation and Tambra’s new existence is one of them. Her mundane life as a beat cop just got a whole lot scarier with the reveal a paranormal reality.

There are things in this world that defy explanation and Tambra’s new existence is one of them. Her mundane life as a beat cop just got a whole lot scarier with the reveal a paranormal reality. The challenge in acceptance is met with the demands of attraction to a mysterious vampire who has the power to end the loneliness in her life. Unfortunately, power is up for grabs and Tambra is the key to its claim. The demanding life of an Enforcer is a responsibility that Marcus does not take lightly. He lives to enforce Tribunal law and hunt down the Breeds that have gone feral, so as not to alert humans of their existence. Saving Tambra may just prove to be more than he can handle, as he is unprepared for the instinctual feelings she elicits. Bad timing just took on a whole new meaning. The first in a new series by Ms. Albright has left me wanting more. This story is action-packed with a swift pacing that ensures enthralled attention. The world building seems to be slightly complex with many of its facets left to be revealed throughout the series. The hero and heroine are dominant characters with passionate natures that are reflected in both duty and intimacy. There are also many secondary characters with their own storylines left to be explored for future installments. Fans of paranormal romance should absolutely check out this short tale of love, lust, revelation, and revenge. Review also posted @ Happily Ever After Reviews: http://www.hea-reviews.blogspot.com/

Review: One thing this book is not lacking in is speed. This has to be one of the quickest books I have ever read. Shannon covers so much in such a little amount of time I wanted to go back and read it again. Well that and it was a great read. While I will not give away any details or spoilers, I will say I really really hope that there is a sequel. It seemed like she alluded to a sequel. The range of characters in this novel from the Cajun human best friend to the different Dark Breeds species was a brilliant balance of familiar and new. Good job, Shannan. Can’t wait to read more.

    Secretly Reading

    This is a good first book in a new paranormal series. I liked the world building as it was imaginative and compelling. The secondary characters are outstanding and will make me read their stories. However, the couple quickly jumps to the I-love-you stage without much emotional bonding. I only noted this in passing while speeding through this otherwise excellent book.
