Ally Marshall isn’t just a wolf shifter — she’s a Seer.
But a girl doesn’t exactly need special powers to know that Derren Hudson despises her entire kind. Disdain practically rolls off the Beta of the Mercury Pack . . . disdain mixed with a healthy dose of desire. And no matter how much the ruggedly handsome male appeals to her, this is one call of the wild she’s determined to ignore.
After one betrayal too many, Derren doesn’t have much use for Seers — except for Ally.
Forced into acting as her protector, he finds himself intensely and passionately drawn to the woman who incites his primal instinct to claim.
And when enemies target the pack, Ally’s gift may be just what the Mercury Pack needs.
Can he put his distrust aside, or will he force himself to turn his back on the one woman who makes his inner beast howl?
Coming September 29, 2015...
Ally Marshall is a Seer and empath. When she is accused of hurting the Beta female of her pack, Ally knows it’s time to go. After drifting from pack to pack over the years, Ally is ready to find her place. She never expected that place to be with the Mercury Pack. Unbeknownst to Ally, her foster brother contacts Derren Hudson, who is the Beta of the Mercury Pack, to protect her, Ally knows instantly that Derren hates her kind. He wants nothing to do with her, which is fine with Ally. She is used to being on her own and taking care of herself. It only takes a few short days for Ally to prove herself to the pack when she saves the Alpha female’s life.
This was the first book I’ve read by Suzanne Wright & holy shit was it steamy which is exactly how I like my romances. The struggle that Derren felt over his feelings for Ally was very real. He had a real prejudice against Seers, but as he got to know Ally better, he realized that she is nothing like the Seers that he knew in the past. It takes awhile for the Pack to warm up to Ally (except Shaya), but she eventually proves herself. Ally is very dominant herself, which makes her and Derren butt heads quite a bit. He loves her dominant side, but he always wants her to submit to him in some ways.
I found this book to be very likeable & an easy read. As of this writing, I am on book five of the series & I’ve loved every single book. I can’t wait to go back and read the Phoenix Pack series!
Rating: 4 out of 5.
