Synopsis

Gareth’s heart is set on Cam, but Cam’s heart broke a long time ago.
As alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, Cam’s focus is always centred on its members—his personal life pushed aside after the death of his wife. Now that his pack has merged with the Primrose Hill shifters, he can't afford any distractions.
Gareth’s been in love with his alpha for years, but his position as beta complicates matters. Added to the fact Cam still mourns his late wife, Gareth knows his feelings will never be reciprocated, so he buries them deep.
With the two packs already struggling to unite under one alpha, they get a surprise addition—one who causes more tension within the ranks. Under such strain, long-kept secrets are forced into the open. Gareth and Cam must deal with the aftermath, while also keeping the pack’s best interests at heart.

 

Lisa’s Review

Bitten by the Alpha by Annabelle Jacobs is book four in her Regent’s Park Pack series. Once again this author has penned a fast-paced, fun and sexy story that had me engrossed right from the start. I have been eagerly awaiting Cam’s story since the onset of this series so I was excited to dive right into this one. I was not disappointed with how the pack alpha finally lost a little bit of his iron-clad control. All in the name of a mate bond!

As alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, Cam has been a secondary character that has been present through the series. The same can be said for his beta, Gareth. Both characters have had integral parts in the overall story arc that has developed from the start. This is undoubtedly a story of unrequited love as Gareth has been in love with Cam for years; however, is the pack alpha destined to love again after losing his wife over ten years prior?

This storyline is not a stand-alone romance as you will find that the overall story arc that has been developed since book one has continuously flowed from one book to the other. Cam is dealing with new pack members and their former alpha. Throw in the complications that a mate bond with his beta can bring and Cam is not sure he wants to deal with all the hitches that can come of those developments.

Watching Cam and Gareth finally dive into a relationship where powerful feelings that neither man can ignore begin to blossom was essentially what made this book for me. Our two protagonists certainly have a few obstacles to overcome. It takes more than lust and inexplicable physical attraction to build a lasting relationship especially when so much can go so wrong. But, the heart wants what it wants and as our two protagonists get pulled in deeper and deeper, they discover that taking a risk just may be the best thing they ever did.

There is also no shortage of some down and dirty sexy times when the intrinsic pull between our two protagonists becomes too much to ignore. It made things interesting and HAWT!!!!! I love the passionate and heated moments between Cam and Gareth. This entire series has been particularly heated because… wolves/shifters. Good times. Seriously, read this one with caution. As a matter of fact, have a fan handy. ;)

All in all, Bitten by the Alpha was an enjoyable MM paranormal read. Ms. Jacobs has penned a very intriguing shifter romance also continuing on with her world building information without it becoming too cumbersome. She also tied up some loose ends this time around. I certainly hope there is more to come in this series. Highly recommended read.

Bitten by Mistake (Book 1)

From animosity to searing passion in a lunar cycle… but can their bond survive?

Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken.

After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard.

A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted.

But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.

When the last thing you want, is everything you need….
Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?
Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.
When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn't want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.

bitten by desireBitten by Desire (Book 3)

Two lovers from rival packs. Have they come together only to be forced apart?
Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction.
As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.
Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.
If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.
