Book Description

When you’re the top wolf on the continent with the backing of the Goddess, how does an enemy topple your kingdom? By challenging you to a fight? No. By changing the rules.

After three hundred years of fighting and service to the Goddess, Silas Knight is the Patron, Alpha to the Alphas on the North American continent. As the top wolf, he fears little and has seen most things. But when he discovers someone or something has been quietly disturbing the natural order of things, he’s surprised. Certain human women have the ability to birth fully functioning wolves, and that’s a major problem.

Jasmine Bennett has no idea her deceased husband was a wolf shifter or that her twin sons are shifters. Her life changes when she rushes to her son’s bedside after he’s wounded in Afghanistan and returned stateside. Now her life’s in danger because of her ability to give birth to a breed of beings she never knew existed.

“I apologize for the mix-up, your Honor,” the doctor said in low tones. “It appears the commander in Afghanistan who normally handles these transfers was in the field. Your nephew departed with a few other injured soldiers to Germany instead of France. Later, they shipped him here. However, the attending physicians did not have a chance to look him over. I took over within an hour of his arriving. The head physician wanted to have a team examine him before approving the transfer to the specialty hospital,” the smaller man said as he walked alongside Silas.
At the last comment, Silas stopped and raised his brow.
“None of them did,” the doctor rushed to say. “I bought in another team who approved the change of venue.”
“I am disappointed with such a break-down in the system. We have people in place all over the world to prevent these incidents. . Now, I must determine if this type of thing happens frequently. After all, the military notified me because I am his next of kin. Otherwise, I would have no knowledge of the fuck-up.”
The doctor swallowed hard and followed Silas down the hall. Security had checked and approved the safety of the hospital floor. Employees glanced in his direction, but quickly averted their eyes. His long-legged stride through the sterile space signaled his frustration. His aides walked a few feet behind him, waiting for a sign to come forward. The door to his godson’s room opened as he approached.
His heart stuttered at the sight of bandages and machinery attached to the young man who was like a son to him. One of his greatest sorrows in his long life was his inability to reproduce. Cameron’s parents had been his closest friends prior to his rise as Patron, and he'd promised them to look after their son before they died in a tragic hunting accident
“Cameron,” he lowered his voice as he spoke, not wanting to frighten the younger man.
At first there was no response. Then a slight movement of his hand signaled he'd heard.
“Son, I am here. We will take you where you can recuperate faster. You need special care, Doctor Fields has already made the arrangements and you will be leaving soon.” He moved closer and touched the young man’s hand. The slight flinching beneath his confirmed Cameron heard and knew someone, if not him in particular, was with him. For the moment he had to be satisfied with that.
“We will discuss this attraction you have with dangerous situations when you are able. You promised to focus on a family, that means a mate, kids,” whispering, he leaned forward. “Pups.” He pulled a chair near the bed and sat, hand on top of the injured man’s hand and waited.
Within minutes, a gurney entered the room, and the transfer process started. “La Patron, may I have a word with you?” Dr. Fields asked with some hesitation and stepped backward.
Silas nodded.
“There is another case here that has caught my attention. I think you need to know about this one, there is an unregistered shifter –”
“He dies.” Silas retorted. “You know the rules.”
“I understand, but this is different. The shift

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is indeed a good start to a series. Keep in mind though that this is a START. If you are looking to read a stand alone novel, then you shouldn't purchase this book. The book is told mostly from the point of view of the male character. There are parts I really enjoyed like the strong family connection and the twin characters. I didn't like the ending (could have been in a better place - confrontation of the two main characters for instance) and there was very little romance. For the price though, this is an interesting read. If the author is able to complete the series, then I may purchase the completed work. Over the years, I've learned not to become excited by any series that is just beginning since there is a possibility the author won't complete it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Male lead was too much of a cold bigoted jerk June 11, 2013
By JLW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I disliked the male lead who treated the female lead as either a lab experiment to be observed or a breeder he doesn't fully respect. It's strange that the supposed hero of this tale is such a bigot against humans in a really scary elitist way.
Some of the details of the books seemed inconsistent and did the characterizations. The story does end on a cliff hanger, but then at 99 cents, I think that's okay.

Something I do want to praise the author for is that gay relationships are introduced and it is just accepted and none of the gay characters are depicted in a stereotypical, swishy manner. I also like the close relationship between the twin sons and their mother. Perhaps if the story had focused more on the mother who came across as a strong, likable character, I would have liked this book more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strart of a Great Series May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful book for a great price(longer than most books for the price). It was filled with family sticking together, shape-shifter elements and hot sex scenes. I can't wait for the next book to be published!

3.0 out of 5 stars short story- unfinished June 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first book I've read from this author. Her story line drew me in and kept me reading right along. There were a few times in the story where new characters were thrown at you and you had keep reading to figure it out. While I did enjoy this short story I was not happy that the story ended so abruptly and in the middle of the storyline. Unlike a true short story that has a beginning, middle and end this was a "to be continued". While I can see the author and publisher wanting to make more money with 2 books but at a cost of $.99 for this book she should have just continued the story to the end and charged more. Not sure that I'll remember this author to go back in a few months to find the sequel and finish what I began.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not good December 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The storyline and characters were decent, but it's painfully obvious that the author didn't have an editor and needs some plot development skills.

I can't believe no one mentioned the awkwardness of some scenes. Silas telling Jasmine's children "your moms putting out a signal that she wants to get f*ed long and hard." And then telling them to try not to listen while he proceeds to do that. What the heck? Why is that conversation necessary?

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a romance at all! December 30, 2013
By Birty53
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this book on Book Bob. When I went to check out reviews, it only had 1-one star and 3-two stars. There were also over 60-3+ star reviews. All the 5 star reviews raved about wanting to read the next book in the series. Oh, and according to Book Bob and Amazon, this is a para-romance, something I like to read. Ok, so I take a shot.

If this is a romance, then I've being using the wrong definition of romance all these years. The author, Sydney Addae, has written a story, the beginning of a series of books, about an alpha of alphas werewolf, Silas, and a human, Jasmine, who can breed with werewolves, which is strictly forbidden. Ok, so as a reader, I think this is going to be about their romance. Not so much. Silas is a real ass, and expects everyone, including Jasmine, who is clueless about the werewolves, to just fall in line and let him be the boss. Every argument against his orders is met with "my way or death." Now, doesn't that just scream romance? And Jasmine is just plain annoying! At first, I thought she would be a strong female heroine. She has raised her two twin sons, Tyrone and Tyrese, both werewolves half-breeds (authors words), by herself after she was raped by their father when she was 16. Even though Davian, the twins' father, married her, he treated her without respect and eventually faked his death so he could live with his "real" mate. The twins love their mom and she them. She is very protective. All good qualities. But it seems that once she gets around Silas and her mating pheromones kick in, then the only course of action is sex and lots of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Convoluted and drawn out December 29, 2013
By DinaC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another incomplete story, where you need to read the next installment. This book has potential, unfortunately, Jasmine and Silas have less than zero chemistry and Silas is kind of a jerk.

I kept reading hoping it would get better, but at this point nothing makes sense and I don't like any of the characters enough to continue. I finished he book to its lack of conclusion which is gave it 2 stars versus 1.

If the book was longer and some conclusions drawn I could be okay, but he world building is not there for the sheer volume of characters brought in coupled by the brevity of the book. Would have been better with more world building and less characters. As I stands at this point neither have been developed enough.
