Review

A tormented hero finds hope, healing, redemption in an action-packed story that is a creative, insightful spin on Beauty and the Beast.--Library Journal.
 
Dodd wraps up her thrilling Chosen Ones in superb fashion...packs in dangerous adventure, noble sacrifice & undying passion.-- 4 1/2* HOT! Romantic Times

From the Author

Enjoy a passionate moment from the full-length paranormal romance, WILDER: the Chosen Ones!
            Charisma woke, nerves tingling, aware she was not alone.
            Daylight seeped into the cave, and she could clearly see that Guardian stood over her. But although her heart quickened, she refused to show fear, or even to feel it.
            "You're in my bed," he said in a neutral tone.
            "I didn't feel like sleeping on the ground anymore, and this is the only bed here. Big, too. And comfortable." She turned over with her back to him. "Come to bed. It's big enough for the two of us. I hope you don't snore." She waited to see what he would do.
            A few moments later, the covers shifted. The mattress compressed. He pulled the bed curtains shut. And he was next to her, their world reduced to the size of a mattress.
            What was he thinking? What was he doing? Was he perturbed with her? Was he uncomfortable? Did he think she was coming on to him?
            Because she wasn't. No, no, no.
            When she chose to sleep in his bed, her decision had been all about comfort and recuperation, and not about intimacy. She might think Guardian attractive in an odd, animalistic way, but she planned to help the man, not dance the horizontal mambo with him...
            His voice made her jump. "You've got my pillow."
            "Oh!" She pretended to be surprised. Like she didn't already know she had his pillow.
            The whole bed was this giant phallic symbol, with tall, smooth, polished posts on each corner and heavy purple velvet bed curtains enclosing the California king mattress. The sheets were silky-smooth, latte-colored, and she'd guess about a thousand thread count, and a dozen pillows were tossed against the tall mahogany headboard. More to the point, the whole contraption carried a faint hint of Guardian's scent. 
            How did a man manage to smell like long, lazy days on a white sandy beach? Like blue skies and carefree memories? Like callused hands smoothing lotion over her skin?
            Charisma was a smart girl. She knew the scent was pure testosterone. But knowing the facts didn't make any difference, because she sought out his pillow, buried her face in it, took long, deep breaths, and fell asleep holding it crushed in her arms.
            Then she dreamed of him. And her. And them.
            Now he insinuated that he wanted his pillow back.
            He didn't know about her dreams.
            She should be grateful.

More About the Author

Join New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd's mailing list to have her news delivered right to your inbox! http://christinadodd.com

In 2014, Christina's all-new series, Virtue Falls, starts with:
-- THE LISTENER: A Virtue Falls e-Short Story (Out now!)
-- VIRTUE FALLS: A Full-Length Suspense (Out now!)
#1 New York Times bestselling author, Iris Johansen says, "Edge of the seat suspense and fascinating premise. Couldn't put it down. My kind of thriller!"

Christina has published the Lost Hearts series in e-book, all enhanced with extra material:
-- JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
-- ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE
-- CLOSE TO YOU

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.' With more than fifteen million of her books in print, her legions of fans always know that when they pick up a Christina Dodd book, they've found, "an absolute thrill ride of a book!"

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

The story was engrossing and well written.

The best part of this book is that it combines both story lines from both series to end in a dramatic conclusion that was a phenomenal way to tie everything together.

When waiting for a long anticipated book, knowing that it will bring the story to an end a reader often has mixed feelings. One, will it live up to the hype and two does it really have to end? Oh and will I like the ending.. guess that is three questions.. In Christina Dodd's Wilder the final book of her Chosen Ones Series the answer is yes.. yes ... yes.. What a fantastic ending to a wonderful series. The Chosen ones is a series that tells the story of good vs evil in a very obvious manner. It talks about black, white and grey. It shares when characters we think are good are less than perfect and it shares when characters that we thinks should be irredeemable and yet are. I have enjoyed this series from the very beginning and yes am so very sad to see it end. But Ms Dodd, ends it exactly when she should and let me say she does it with a bang!!

Aleksandr Wilder, miracle baby.. A Child of prophecy who walked through fire at a very young age. He was chosen as a chosen not because he had powers but because of who he was. His family had already beat a millennium old contract with the devil, whose to say this generation couldn't do it again? He was still a child when he was chosen, brilliant, generous, kind but still a child. Four years into his service he went to get married and disappeared no one knew if he was alive or dead... Three years later the only thing he knows is that he doesn't know anything. He is the Guardian, a beast whose sole job is to protect those below. The homeless, the mentally ill, society's cast offs. The ones who weren't protected BEFORE Armageddon and certainly not after.

Charisma Fangorn (and no she does not live with the Ents) has heard the hearth speak to her for most of her life.

Let me first say this has been an exciting paranormal romance series from the first book, even if the genre is not your usual fare. The characters are that mix between human and something more that makes them just like people you may know. Rich with flaws, love, quirks, humor, and intensity, they stumble and grow as they become heroes and heroines you can't help but love. The action well-played out, and the romance beautiful and hot (fanning myself)! Wilder is a beauty and the beast sort of love story, one of the best written. Our hero in Wilder is Aleksandr Wilder, a descendant in the family of characters in the Darkness Chosen Series, joining the two in the fight against the same evil. The romance fires between him and Charisma, the only other chosen one who has not found her mate. The chosen ones are gifted with special abilities, and selected to keep a restraint on the greatest evil present in the world. They also rescue others who are gifted. This story can be read as a stand-alone book, as details are briefly interwoven from the bigger stories, but I would recommend reading both series soon because they are EXCELLENT! With such real characters and no repetition in her books, Christina Dodd remains one of the top writers of paranormal romance, and also other romance sub-genres.

Every seven years a group of "Chosen" are selected and these seven are to battle the evil that is attacking the world. The "Chosen" must work together if they are to succeed in defeating this evil. Unfortunately time is running out!

Aleksandr is a troubled guy. He was instrumental in helping save his family and now is struggling to do his part as a "Chosen" to save the world. So he runs from his fate. But as we all know - no one can run forever!

When Aleksandr finds Charisma being attacked - he can no longer run from fate or from himself! He must face his fears or lose his soul!

I fell in love with the Aleksandr and the Wilder family when reading Christina Dodd's "Darkness Chosen" Series. So I have been waiting patiently - well maybe not patiently - for Aleksandr's story (lol). In "Wilder" you get to revisit old favorites. You get a glimpse into how the rest of his family was getting by. I loved it!

"Wilder" was totally worth the wait!

I loved this whole series. I hate that it had to end. I love how the Author foreshadows, yet keeps you wondering in the plot.

The story moved well. When the hero sang broadway tunes to kill demons, I laughed. I read this book before reading the earlier series which made me curious about the previous books. Dodd has become one of my favorite authors.
