Scientist and veterinarian Eve MacMillan loves wolves. She’s been studying them most her life. When she gets the opportunity to study on a private reserve in Alaska, she jumps at the chance. Four months into her year of research, she is as fascinated with the Dillon cousins as she is her wolves.
All six Dillon cousins know that she is their mate. And for four long months they have waited to take the final step. After their Alpha, Noah, seduces her, they tell her they want to share her. Overwhelmed by the passion they inspire, Eve lets her inhibitions dissolve.
Then an unknown enemy ramps up his attacks, and Eve discovers her lovers are more than just men when one of the pack is left fighting for his life.
When their mate isn’t aware that she’s captured the heart of not one but six (yes, that’s SIX) werewolf shifters, their only recourse is to seduce her. Sit back and crank up the air because the seduction of Eve by the Dillon pack is focused and intense, especially when they realize there is more danger than the totem shifters in the forest.
This is the first book in Kiera West’s Great Wolves of Passion, Alaska series for Siren’s new LoveXtreme line and this reviewer is hooked! Ms. West creates a fantastic setting in the far reaches of Alaska that just begs the characters to get active quick just to stay warm. Lucky for our heroine, Eve, there are six brothers/cousins that have every intention of keeping her warm, safe and satisfied beyond her wildest dreams. Eve comes on the scene already having a heart and interest for studying the wolves located on the land preserve owned by the Dillon family. She certainly never considered getting to know them so up close and personal. Not to say she didn’t think about it!
Writing a good ménage could not be an easy task. As a reader I’m picky. I want each individual to have a distinct personality and there has to be believable chemistry between each man with the woman. Ms. West does an outstanding job of not only building her characters but the plot outside the seduction totally drew me in. As any avid reader will tell you, lots of hot sex doesn’t make a book good. The dialogue has to flow naturally and the premise has to make sense, even with a paranormal aspect. Again, I have to applaud Ms. West for an outstanding job of smooth writing and a creative engaging story.
In this particular series there will be a total of eight books (YAY!) with the first bringing Eve to the men, revealing their little secret, and a then snagging the reader with a tease of the real plot. In this case, there is an underlying evil that is attacking the wolves, shifter and non-shifter alike. I was so into the story that I got to the last page and kept hitting the forward button on my e-reader not wanting to believe that there was no more to book one and I’d have to wait patiently for book two while dwelling on the thrilling cliff hanger.
If you love shifter/mate books you will want to read this first book in Ms. West’s series. This reviewer is waiting (rather impatiently) for book two. If it’s anywhere as explosive and exciting as book one it will be well worth the wait!
