Book Description

Thirty and single? Getcha ass to the Gathering!

Ugh. Gabriella Wickham thought turning thirty was bad enough, but now she's been invited (ordered) to attend this year's Gathering (werewolf speed dating). Having a Mark on her arm means that she's one of the few human women destined to mate with not one, but two Alpha werewolves. Thank goodness werewolves don't come in "ugly." After her sister Scarlet mates the Ruling Alphas, things really start to get interesting. Gabby runs into not one, but two hotter than hot werewolves who make her tingle in all the right places. Yum. Of course, "yum" comes with baggage of both the mental and female kind. Lovely. Luckily it's nothing a few punches and a good talking to can't cure. Maybe...-ish.

Berke Davis and Jack Wright know that lush, curvaceous Gabriella is their mate. Who cares that they're currently not part of an Alpha pair? Details, details. Burke has been half bound to his best friend Jack since they were four, but the past keeps them from solidifying their pairing and taking up the mantle of Alpha. Berke understands his friend's feelings, but Jack is about to get a lesson on living and loving. Berke just hopes the lessons are learned before they both lose Gabriella. Especially when she is Challenged by a rival to first blood...a Challenge that could end in very permanent, and deadly, consequences...for Gabriella.

Book #1 - Scarlet ----- Book #2 - Gabriella ----- Book #3 - Whitney

EXCERPT

Low chimes filled the air and then the shift of bodies relocating replaced the gentle sounds. Oh, look, time for the Alpha Pairs to move on to the next "lucky" (she almost snorted) lady.

Gabby sighed as she saw her next two potential mates approach.

They weren't bad looking, like, at all. It seemed shifters didn't come in ugly. Nope, they were all tall, muscular and gorgeous. While she, Gabriella Wickham, was short, plump and rather ordinary. Good thing a big part of mating was based on her Mark's reaction and not the men's attraction to her.

She sighed and was thankful her sisters couldn't read her thoughts. They'd spent her entire life bitching at her about her Debbie Downer attitude when it came to men. They kept trying to convince her that men could love her just the way she was, big butt and all.

The two newcomers slid into the seats across from her, all predatory smiles and leers. God, were wolves this hard up that they were looking at her with sex on the brain?

Whatevs.

Pasting on a purely fake smile, she held out her hand. "Hi, I'm Gabriella Wickham. My friends call me Gabby."

Knowing what was coming, she kept her expression frozen in place. The first guy didn't even bother to introduce himself. Nope, he gently gripped her hand and brought it to his lips. Actually, his nose. The first time it'd happened she'd nearly swooned at the seductive gesture. She'd thought the wolf was going to brush a kiss across her knuckles like some gallant man of old. As if. The guys were really taking a good whiff to see if she belonged to them.

He turned her hand over and slid his nose along her inner-wrist, sending chilly air rushing over her skin. The seductive light in his eyes instantly dimmed.

Yeah, she could have told him she didn't belong to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and HOT! June 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this sexy, werewolf story, Gabriella, our heroine, is approaching the big 3-0 and is less than thrilled. Just to make matters worse, she must attend The Gathering where two werewolves are chosen to mate with the plus-sized beauty. It doesn't sound like such a bad order to obey, but things can turn dangerous and deadly when teeth are bared. Kyle has spun this spicy tale with a paranormal twist with readers in mind who won't complain staying glued to their seat for an hour or so until the explosive ending. Gabriella is a terrific character and many will relate to her because she's realistic and hilarious. The author is a gifted writer, and an abundance of readers will be amazed that she can pack a punch this powerful in a novella. A great follow up to book one where Scarlet was in the spotlight, but now Gabby takes center stage and paranormal fans will be delighted with her performance. By the time we reach the finish of the second installment, we'll be howling at the moon and anticipating the third with bated breath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Paranormal Series July 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the series and it has a bit more angst on the guys part.

They story was great and I loved Gabby! I was also digging Berke, but Jack was self involved jerk most of the time. I thought Berke should have just said FU I am claiming her alone!

The story was well written and the characters engaging. I loved the Challenge and how Gabby handled things. She showed real character! And in the end I had to say "You Go Girl" to how she resolved the battle!

There was only one full on menage steamy scene at the end of the book. But it was seriously hot and heavy!!

I love the whole dynamic between the sisters and can not wait for Whitney to get her story. Even though she is the quieter sister she showed a hidden sassy streak in this book! Her men will be in for trouble!!

not quite what i was hoping for when i read this book. The suspense wasn't there like it was for me in the first book to this series. I enjoyed reading it, however, i hope whitney's is more suspenseful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Too Short July 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the sample and seemed like a really good book. Would have given it 4 stars, but it was too short. It went from hope, to angst, to resolution in 2 hours (the amount of time it took to read the book...pamphlet really). I feel I should get back $2.00 because it is not worth 2.99 to read something that takes less time 2 Doctor Who episodes on Netflix

Berke Davis and Jack Wright know that Gabriella is their mate. However the past keeps them from their pairing and taking up the mantle of Alpha. Oh boy, what a ride, attitude, fighting and well making up (maybe).

Well worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I need more of the Wickham Sisters. April 6, 2014
By angie
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a shapeshifter Menage book, the second book in the Alpha Marked series, it can be read as a stand alone, but I have to read the next book. Usually the first book in a series is the best one, but I was pleasantly surprised because I liked this book much more. Thou not as erotic, yes there is still sexual activities going on in there, so readers be aware, ha. For me this book was more entertaining and I was laughing through the whole story. Engrossed from the first paragraph, I finished this book within a couple hours. I am so in love with Wickham Sisters, so yes, I am begging Celia Kyle to write a book dedicated to just them, they are that great! This story picks up where Scarlet left off, at the gathering with Gabriella's point of view, which is hilarious! She is my favorite of the two. She is sarcastic and has no filter. Yep I have a connection to her, ha. She does not hide her discontentment with the "speed sniffing gathering". She thinks she is "short, plump and ordinary" so she has inner low self esteem, but she never portrays that part of her. She is devoted to her family and will do anything for them. The only part I had trouble understanding was the explanation of Berke and Jack, but it was not enough to deter me from loving the overall story.

This book starts where the book about Scarlet ends, still at the Gathering. But this is about Gabriella one of the 30 year old triplets, she is also marked, which means she is intended to mate with an Alpha werewolf, as if one wasn't enough she has to mate with a pair. She makes no point to hide her discontent with being at the speed sniffing gathering. The only good thing about this whole venture is werewolves are sexy, yum. On the first day her sister Scarlet finds her Alpha mates, the Ruling Alpha pair at that.
