Book Description

Nora Hunt is the daughter of former pack leader Sean Hunt and niece to Kieran Hunt. Emotionally and physically scarred after being held captive for weeks, she's finally ready to move on with her life. But when she meets Ryland, she discovers not only a world of darkness and pain, but discovers Ryland may not be any better than those who held her captive all those weeks.

When Ryland Keegan steps in as Alpha of his dead brother's pack, he inherits a pack of savage rogue wolven, as well as a legacy of violence, lies and five women held captive within the pack's confines.

But when Ryland's pack members start dying one at a time, he must decide if Nora is the catalyst or the killer. Can he trust his True Mate? Or will he be relegated to a life of leading the dregs of Wolven society?

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly enjoyable paranormal romance! July 22, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Boy, is it good to have Teresa D'Amario back! I lost count of the many times I read SheWolf since the first time and I've been waiting for Nora's story as well as Ryland's. I was very interested in seeing how a villain could be turned into a hero for the next book as its one of things on my wishlists for romance themes.

D'Amario doesn't disappoint! Dark Succession is a sexy paranormal romance but it's also a gut wrenching fantasy and suspense all rolled into one. After being captured and tortured then saved by Anna, heroine of SheWolf, Nora (daughter to the former pack leader Sean and Laura) has moved on to college where the guys give her attention more for her status than for herself. After almost being attacked by a group of college guys, Ryland intervenes and rescues Nora then takes her back to his compound where he hides a harrowing secret not only within his pack but also one he doesn't know about that's been hidden as a lie within his own family. Soon, members of Ryland's pack being to disappear and as Nora uncovers the reasons why, a pattern emerges bringing them close to the pack as things begin to unravel.

Ryland came dangerously close to being anti-hero and there are some heavy things he is involved with. His brother (another secret) left him a no-holds-barred unruly wolven pack of convicts, rapists and war mongers and it's up to him keep order even as he fights to control his attraction to Nora.

Nora was a strong heroine although she had some faults due to how she saw her body. I like that she was a strong SheWolf and she took charge when needed but also had to overcome the time she spent as a prisoner. It was an interesting admission when she meets similar prisoners at Ryland's compound and how she saw him through her eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Shifter story June 13, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Dark Succession is an excellent mixture of action and romance, which alone made for a wonderful read. However, I was glued to the pages of this book because of the excellent story telling and an gripping "whodunit" plot line. Ryland's pack members are being killed off and he has no idea who is doing it or why it is happening. In addition, someone keeps breaking into Ryland's den, and he finds a mysterious coded diary that his dead brother left behind. Ryland doesn't know who can help him, and after he has been lied to and hurt by his own family so often, he cannot even trust that his True Mate, Nora, is innocent. We are introduced to a wonderful cast of characters and I found myself constantly looking for a hint or clue that would help me solve the mysteries. I could not put this book down.

On top the great whodunit story, we have Nora: our heroine. Nora is a shewolf and daughter of her pack's former leader. She is strong, but was destroyed by her own capture and torture and is no longer the confident shewolf she once was. (We read about her captivity in the first book, She Wolf.)

What I love about Nora is that we watch her grow from the weak shell of her former self to the strong alpha-bitch she was born to be. For wolven to show fear is signing a death warrant. And Nora does that early on in the book when a not very nice wolven grabbed her wrists, forcing Nora back into her memories of her capture. We watch her learn to overcome the past, and with the patience and love of her Mate, she gains back her confidence.

On the flip side of Nora's story is Ryland's journey from lonely leader to powerful alpha with a heart. Early on he is drawn to Nora physically because of the True Mate bond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story March 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was another great shapeshifter story from Teresa. The characters really came to life and I loved Nora and Ryland really redeemed himself in this story. The plot twists were great. I usually can guess the whodunits and this one suprised me. Loved the scenery, too. It was very unique. A great second (or standalone) book in the series. I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! April 1, 2013
By Larissa
Format:Paperback
I LOVE shifters! Have I told you that already? I'm sure I have LOL. What is not to love? Animal magnetism, sexy Alpha males that growls and are possessive, females that have sharp nails and have no qualms about using them on a male's body and a lot of smexing. I love reading about soul mates and couples that are joined by fate and I have to say that in Dark Succession I got all that and much more.

Right from the beginning of the novel we get in the thick of the action. We find our heroine, Nora, in wolf form, by the side of the road being taunted by a group of young men that believe she is just a dog. Ryland shows up on his motorcycle, coming to her rescue. One whiff of her scent at a side of the road bar and he just had to go after her.

Nora's car broke down and when she walks over to a bar near where she got stranded, the smell of a male wolven stirs things inside her that she'd rather not even think about, so she just turns around and leaves.

That's how our two protagonists meet and that encounter will change their lived forever, because the reason they are so attracted and drawn to each other is that they are True Mates. Wolven soul mates is something very rare in their world and their is really no turning your back on nature and instinct.

Nora and Ryland's past bring a lot of complications to the table and Teresa D'Amario was able to present us with two very complex and interesting characters.

Ryland is the Alpha of his pack, but not by choice. His brother was killed recently by another alpha and the pack's leadership was put upon his shoulder without him really wanting it. However, that is not the only thing his brother left him, for Joshua's reign of terror left a lot of marks and it is Ryland's responsibility to deal with it all.

More About the Author

Born in Atlanta, the daughter of an Army Soldier during the early stages of the Viet Nam war, I spent my childhood traveling from state to state, finally ending up overseas in Germany where I graduated high school six months early.

My writing career however began as a young Airman in the Air Force, writing monthly articles for the weekly base paper. The articles ranged from climatological data to full center fold articles on the destructive forces of hurricanes. As I increased in rank, my writing changed to more technological instruction, including such works as WSR-88D Doppler Radar Data Interpretation Guide for North Carolina Stations, and Station Operating Procedures.
