Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn’t sure he’s fit to lead – especially when he meets the one woman he can’t claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire. Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant – if only he’d let it. But Calla isn’t about to give up on her mate without a fight. Time is running out, not only for Nick to claim his mate, but for Calla and her coven. A vampire war is on the horizon, one the Alpha Pack can’t hope to win if their leader can’t pull himself back from the abyss.
Contains mature themes.

Wolf’s Fall Audiobook Sample
In Wolf’s Fall, we have Nick, the Alpha Pack’s alpha. He is a born wolf, which makes him pretty much immortal. He is a couple hundred years old. In a previous book, Nick was taken by vampires and was traumatized when one fed from him. Vampires feeding are quite a sexual experience. It left him with a case of PTSD and starts the book off in a very bad place in his own head.
Calla is a vampire princess. She has already lost her mate. She is very understanding of Nick’s predicament with his fear of vampires. Her ability to see past Nick’s faults and to work with him, really show what a perfect mate she is for the old Commander. She isn’t the kick ass heroine that I normally look for in a book, but she has some really great traits that endear her all the same. Even though she isn’t a trained warrior, she picks up a gun and helps in the fight.
In this story, the Alpha pack are called to help their new vampire allies with some rogues that are attacking their coven. It takes a while to figure out how these vampires have the information. There is mole in the coven or the pack. There is also some serious motivation to attack.
This series once again delivers a great story with interesting characters. Not only do we have shifters, most of which who are werewolves, and vampires, there are also several other species, including the Fae prince who has been exiled from him realm. There is also a new species that is introduced in the series who is playing for the bad guys.
While this is the sixth book in the series, you could read/listen to this one as a stand alone, but probably isn’t quite as good as if you had read the whole series. For those of you familiar with this series, the story takes place mostly at the vampire’s coven. We don’t see as much of the characters from the compound. We do see some of the characters of previous books, but only in a side role.
