Thirty and single? Well, getcha butt to the Gathering!
As if hitting thirty wasn’t enough, unmated Scarlet Wickham is summoned to this year’s Gathering. As a woman Marked to be the mate of an Alpha pair, she’s not going to find happiness anywhere other than in the arms of two Alpha werewolves. So, off she goes with her sisters in tow. ‘Cause yeah, she’s one of the plump Wickham triplets, and they’re all being carted off to werewolf speed dating.
Keller and Madden, Ruling Alpha pair, can’t believe their luck. They’ve found their mate, and she’s more than they could have ever hoped for. She’s feisty with spirit to spare, and lush curves that they want to trace with their tongues. They can’t wait to solidify their bond and get to know the beautiful woman who is to rule at their side. But first, there’s the minor inconvenience of a challenge to the death…
Well then… –fans face– I think we can all agree that every straight female has had at least one fantasy of TWO men available to pleasure her in every way, protect her, comfort her, hold her and possibly fight (to the death) over… and in this fantasy.. erm… book, all of those dreams come true!
Scarlet is a triplet, and one of the two sisters who had been “Alpha Marked” — meaning that she is a human who will find her mate(s) in an alpha wolf. She and her sisters have known this all their lives, though one of the sisters, Whitney, was born without the mark. Oddly, she, too, received an invitation to the Gathering — a gathering of all un-mated alpha pairs (as the wolves all rule in pairs) for all the un-mated alpha marked to show up to see if they can find each other. Scarlet and Gabby (the other marked triplet) have tried to avoid this their whole lives. But the precise minute they turn 30, they receive the invitation. It just appears on their counters in their private homes. So, of course, Scarlet tries to set hers on fire. When that doesn’t work, and she receives calls from not just one but both sisters, she resigns herself to going. If only to avoid punishment, and to find out why the hell they’re messing with Whitney’s heart — the only one of the sisters who has wanted all her life to be marked.
It’s a short book and so there’s not much I can say without ruining the whole thing, but it’s a sexy one, and semi-violent, but hey! Alpha males who challenge each other? There will be blood.
There will also be sex. Really, really sexy sex. So 5 out of 5 for this novella because it’s just hot and I love the three leading ladies!
