About the Author
Suzanne Wright can’t remember a time when she wasn’t creating characters and telling their tales. Even as a child, she loved writing poems, plays, and stories. As an adult, Wright has published Here Be Sexist Vampires, The Bite That Binds, Taste of Torment, From Rags, Consumed, and the first three books in the Phoenix Pack series, Carnal Secrets, Feral Sins, and Wicked Cravings. Her only rule in writing a book is that it has to have a happy ending. Wright was born and raised in England, and now lives in Liverpool with her husband and two children. She hates housecleaning and can’t cook, but she always shares chocolate.

I also see discrepancies between the character's from book to book. When Roni was introduced to us in the last book she was kind of shy and awkward in a non aggressive and pissed at the world kind of way. Anti social does not equal a person who always seems to be on the offensive. There did seem like a great story behind her whole staying in wolf form for long periods. In this book the word strong is thrown around pertaining to her disposition but to me she just seemed stand-offish. In the last book her mother was nothing but sweet and good to her and this book her mother is horrible to her. I think that a woman can be strong with out being totally emotionally unavailable. I don't understand why continually "strong woman" means bitchy and rude and showing no love or emotions outwardly. I think I'm done with this crew.
Genre: Romance, paranormal and fantasy,
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I first came across Suzanne’s books with the funny and sexy Here be Sexist Vampires. Then came book one of the Phoenix pack and I loved it. I’ve re read both of those since I first bought them and they still feel funny and fresh. From there on though the series has dropped for me progressively with each book, and its time for me to say goodbye. The books feel very “same” – as if its one plot, recycled with characters, that are different only by their names. Its become A fancies B and somehow through a few trials they get together, but along the way the Phoenix pack ( or now the Mercury Pack) have to fight another pack and the girls get bitchy with someone.
The dialogue – the snark between Greta and Taryn ( and now some of the others) was funny in book one, but now its just tiresome and irritating. Dominic's jokes seem to get ever cheesier, to the point where I feel I’ve heard all the jokes and snark many times over. Every male wolf seems to be strong, and every female either also strong or the other extreme, girly, giggly and bitchy. The scene with the female Jackal and the ladies from the two packs was just too OTT for me. Really – she’ll take torture, but not what they did? Sorry – its a case of not the book, but me – I’m sure others will wait avidly for the next book( s) but not me....Horses for courses and all that. I’ll still look out for anything new from Suzanne but for the Phoenix pack and I its time to part way.
Stars: Two and a half, there were some parts I enjoyed and as always Suzanne writes hot sex scenes but the main thrust of the book just didn’t cut it for me.
