Book Description:

Wolf’s Haven - Caedmon Wolves, 1 

Tamara would risk her life to gain freedom. She's finally built up the courage to escape from a world of abuse by the hands of man who promised her the world. One night she makes a break for it, but her plans backfire. She begins to believe that she was never meant to be happy. When all hope of freedom fades, she stumbles across a wolf that brings her to safety. She learns to trust the wolf, but has yet to trust the man.

Devin, potential future leader of the Caedmon Pack, returns to the foothills of his Virginia home after five long years as a lone wolf. Rivals within the circle challenge him and threaten to strip him of his true birthright. Being bound to lead the pack was not something Devin had planned for his life, but letting his people fall prey to turmoil under the rule of his cousin Darius is out of the question. The night of Devin's rise to Alpha leader is approaching. Despite opposition, he's gained an impressive following. That is until he brings a human among the pack.

Tamara can't deny the attraction she feels toward Devin. The Alpha leader-to-be simply cannot resist Tamara's lure. When they are together, their tribulations take the backburner. Their desire for one another grows as they consummate their passion in wolf's haven. Will Devin forfeit the most coveted position within the Caedmon Pack to bond with his chosen mate? Can Tamara trust Devin with her mind, heart, body, and soul or will the memories of her abuse dissuade her from being bound to the wolf?

Wolf’s Promise - Caedmon Wolves, 2 

Selene is thrust into the aftermath of Caedmon pack rivalry when determination to help a friend leads her to the foothills of the Virginia mountains. She doesn't anticipate that her generosity would earn her a place behind bars and at the mercy of man who saves her from a sentence worse than death. Soon she discovers that Nick is far from ordinary. Under the façade of his commitment to protect her from evil hides a secret that shatters her faith in him.

Nick knew his life would be forever changed when Devin, the new Caedmon leader, honors him with the title of Second-in-Command. With this responsibility, he's introduced to a web of pack politics and threats. Darius, the banished wolf who lost the most coveted title within the pack, turns out to be a sore loser, and he demands either complete dominance or total destruction. Someone must stop him before he tears down the unity that has held the pack together for decades.

In the midst of it all, he meets a tempting brazen beauty. Selene is not just any woman, and the wolf inside reminds Nick of this fact every time she's in his presence. She awakens raging passion within him, and he desires her like no other. Nick's past misfortunes has taught him many things. For one...never trust a woman with his heart.

True love awaits in the path of danger, but will Selene and Nick let the chaos destroy their bond?

Wolf’s Touch - Caedmon Wolves, 3

Jayson Truman is captivated by his boss’s daughter. He finds himself fantasizing about the many ways he’d like to have his way with Arianna Klein. Despite Mr. Klein’s strong connections to the Caedmon community, he and Jayson have never seen eye to eye on any matter. Lusting after his daughter only adds fuel to the flames. Their long-standing business relationship begins to unravel. Secrets are exposed, and loyalty is tested. Jayson is warned to stay away from Arianna…

Cutting family ties seems like Arianna’s only recourse to regaining control of her life. Yet, steering clear of her father is easier said than done, especially when she holds the key to his business’s success…or failure. And as if her life weren't dictated enough by men with oversized egos, add Jayson to the equation and his many attempts to lay claim to her. If he thinks she’s going to swoon at his feet like a sex crazed maniac, he’s got another thing coming. But Arianna is not the only one with a key. Jayson may very well be the pawn she needs to get her out of the mess that her father has built.

Jayson will put his life on the line for Arianna, but will he gain her love and acceptance in return?


Lynn’s Review:

This book is an anthology of Ambrielle’s first three books.  I was so glad to have the chance to read these stories.  I reviewed book 4, Wolf’s Desire, back on May 11 of this year: http://www.urbangirlreader.com/2013/05/11/review-wolfs-desire-by-ambrielle-kirk/.   And to give you the good news early, Wolf’s Strength is coming out this summer.  So if you like shifter romances make sure to put this on your watch list so that you can grab your copy when it comes out.

Wolf’s Haven, Book #1

Tamara is a woman who knows nothing of a gentle hand from the man she’s with.  Devin is a lone wolf who’s coming home.  Ambrielle creates a story that a lot of women can relate to.  It’s an interesting choice for the first book but it’s also a book that grabs your attention and then you have no choice but continue to read this series.

The story moves quickly but the reader will not feel cheated in any way.  It’s a story that is so believable and makes you wish you could go out and find your own hunky Caedmon.  Plus our author doesn’t rush any of her sex scenes – they are right where they need to be.  If you like a book that’s all about the sex, this might not be for you.  If you love a great paranormal read that gives you action, a great looking hero, and just the right amount of romance (and sex), then you’ve found the right author and series to read.

Wolf’s Promise, Book #2

Selene Moore pulls up to a gas station that appears to be out in the middle of nowhere.  She happens to be trying to locate Tamara.  Nick Hyatt is on his way to the Caedmon Pack.  Then Ambrielle has these two meeting in interesting circumstances.

In this book, Ambrielle shows her readers that some men (or shifters) go out of their way to protect and see to the needs of their women.  But she also shows that there are those that are totally opposite and only think about their own agenda.  These men also take care of their women sexually – the woman’s needs before the man’s.

What a great second book.  She has the reader wanting to be part of the Pack and to be cherished by just the right man/shifter.  You will also be left wanting to know more about the other men that belong to the Caedmon.  Can’t wait to read book three.

Wolf’s Touch, Book #3

Arianna Klein’s life is not as she would like it – “sins of the father” as it were.  Jayson Truman comes home to a big party going on.  Arianna sees that Jayson is having a great time at the party.  What a way to reconnect.

I was glad that on the day that I was reading this book I was getting my morning coffee.  When I came out to get back into my car there was a nice black and chrome motorcycle parked next to me.  Then out the door comes Jayson – really cute, just the right amount of tattoos, and sexy as hell.

Their coming together is very hot and very descriptive – totally dream worthy.  Ambrielle reminds her readers that in some societies women were “sacrificed” for the good of the family name.  It also makes me thankful that I have no part in something so barbaric.  Plus, I’m just too independent for anyone to tell me what to do.

Now that I’ve completed the first three books, I will have to go back and re-read book four so that I can get ready for book five coming out.  If you want to know more about Ambrielle and her series stop over to her official web site, http://www.ambriellekirk.com/index.html, and check it out.  (Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
