Blurb:Fire is death.

Ryan lost his family to a fire when he was young, and its haunted him ever since, especially while chasing the arsonist who has been kidnapping gifted shifter kids. Now that they’ve captured the man and his phoenix accomplice and rescued the kids, Ryan thinks maybe life will be able to get back to normal…

But when the phoenix, a creature born of fire, turns out to be Ryan’s true mate, life becomes suddenly even more complicated.

Fire is life.

Phoenix is horrified when his memories return to him and he realizes the pain and suffering he has caused in his new life. His true mate wants nothing to do with him, but he’s determined to hold on to his mate no matter what. He’s never lost his chance with him in any other life, he’s certainly not going to start now.

Rebirth of His Omega is a 38k word novella featuring a lion with a fear of fire and the phoenix who has loved him for many lifetimes. It is the fourth book in the Outcast Chronicles, and it is recommended to read them in order for maximum enjoyment. This book contains mpreg, knotting, and too many kids for our lion to handle. Trigger warning for past infertility.

My Review: The story continues with the phoenix and Ryan the lion who loves to cook for the pack. At first, no one was sure what happened to the Phoenix after the dragon burnt the ancients and releases Wamp, the coyote shifter who caused so much destruction. The Phoenix returns to his senses with jumbled fragmented pictures. Putting those pictures together creates a really morbid consciousness for him. The Phoenix is a true Ancient and he has been reborn countless amount of times. He has lived many lifetimes, but he is shattered by what he has allowed himself to become through loneliness and the lies of a demented man. The man Wamp who he looked to as his master has used him to cause unspeakable destruction. Once his consciousness is fused together, the Phoenix is reconciling to all the damage he has done.

This is how Ryan finds him and his lion pounces. Ryan would love nothing more than to destroy the vulnerable looking man he sees before him. However, there is an unexplained tether that draws them together. Before he knows what’s happening, he’s balls deep in the Phoenix who already recognizes Ryan as his fated mate, a man who he’s known as his, throughout his many lifetimes. Ryan is surrounded by this fog of lust and comes to when they are rudely interrupted by Ryan’s pack alpha Asher. It is disconcerting for Ryan to see his mating mark on their enemy the Phoenix. He is disgusted when he thinks he is mated to a monster.

Their mating is certainly a convoluted mess. It is going to take a lot for everyone to see the Phoenix as someone other than the fire demon they have come to see him as. When Casper the seer reveals that the Phoenix is already pregnant with Ryan’s cub, it makes the situation even more difficult. Even though it is not fully sorted out in his mind, Ryan’s lion has already acknowledged the Phoenix as his mate and is ready to treat him as such. As a pack, they have even more responsibilities now that they have freed so many kids from under Wamp’s control. They all have to learn how to work with Phoenix. The burden is on Phoenix to prove that he is no longer a danger to the pack.

Phoenix who has had problems with infertility in his past lives is adamant that he is not pregnant. Ryan believes in what Caspar the seer has seen. As much as Phoenix would love to be connected to Ryan through a child, he just cannot believe that he is pregnant and give himself false hope. The pregnancy causes a barrier for the two of them, because every time Ryan mentions it, Phoenix shuts down.This is a very painful issue for Phoenix and the weight of his sadness is almost crushing. It soon becomes clear that all cannot be forgiven or forgotten. Ben comes face to face for the first time with Phoenix. All Ben sees is the man who killed his former mate in a fire and the kidnapper of his son Liam. Ben tries to attack and Phoenix flees.

There is definitely a dichotomy between Phoenix’s two personas in everyone’s mind, especially Ryan’s. On one hand , he is the Phoenix who brings death and destruction. On the other hand, the person that shines through right now is Phoenix, his vulnerable, saddened mate who is hurting by the circumstances of his nature. Caspar encourages Ryan to give Phoenix some space. Ryan wars with his lion, but he knows he needs to think. It is at this moment that Ryan realizes that he has gotten to know Phoenix’s true nature and he holds no ill-intent towards the pack. Ryan also sees the error of his ways, he tries so hard to push Phoenix away. How can he expect his own pack to embrace Phoenix if he ,Ryan the man has not fully embraced his own mate, only the lion has. He knows now what is in his destiny, to be one with his mate.

It has not been an easy road for these too. They will have to learn to navigate this new lifetime together. There is one thing that is sure, the spark between them will ignite a flame that will certainly burn forevermore. Their problems are far from over, but they will stand as one united front against all the dangers that they will face as a pack. When the kids are kidnapped again by one of their own, many answers are revealed. Ryan dies but is soon reborn by the power of the Phoenix’s tears.Ryan and Phoenix are now immortal.

Another Ancient is awakened, a dragon named Ryeth who uses pack member Simon as a conduit to communicate. Ryeth/ Simon sheds light on the war they will be facing and the true powers of the phoenix. Ryeth plays a big part as he is the only one able to deliver Phoenix’s twins since he is engulfed in flames during the process. Ryan and Phoenix are Both ecstatic to meet their twins Cassia and Michael. I really enjoyed this one and I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

2. Acceptance For His Omega
3. Healing For His Omega

My Review: Nobody knows grief more than Benjamin. After losing his alpha in a fire where they were all involved. He also realized that his seven year old son has been kidnapped by a coyote shifter determined on causing havoc. A pack filled with wildly different shifters come to his rescue. Although they are a newly formed pack , they offer him refuge for himself and young son. Benjamin is grateful, but he doesn’t quite fit in with the other omegas who have recently given birth and are super happy with their alphas. His heart shatters when the pack midwife Meredith who is more a seer informs him that he is pregnant. Unlike the times before he cannot rejoice in this pregnancy.All he can think about is how his alpha will never see their children grow up, and one of those children are still missing. Ben feels broken.

Ben connects with the quiet cat shifter of the group Kurt. Even in a diverse group such as theirs, Kurt is still considered a loner. It is Kurt who gives him comfort without words. They use their bodies in the most elemental way. Ben is saddened that all he has to offer is sex, but he makes it clear to Kurt that he doesn’t want be knotted or mated. Kurt is the only one who makes him feel something other than despair. They continue on for months finding release in each other’s bodies. Ben is the only one who hasn’t realized that he has bonded with Kurt. It isn’t until Kurt gets hurt and is burned by a phoenix that Ben acknowledges their connection as more. It takes almost a full week for Kurt to heal. By then Ben knows what needs to be done. Kurt is the only man that can heal is fractured heart and Ben is now ready to be whole again as a mated pair.

Kurt never dreamed that he would ever have a family. He is grateful to have Ben who has opened him up to the possibilities. Kurt is aware of the responsibilities of this ready-made family. Not only will he be a mate to Ben, he is now a father to all of Ben’s children. This definitely makes finding their missing son even more of a priority. The pack gains more knowledge by working with Meredith’s people who are all like ancient witches. Their progress is great and they are able to find the coyote shifter Emerson Wamp and all the children he has kidnapped including the Phoenix. The children all have powers and it is not easy to get them away from Wamp who has filled their heads with lies. A battle ensues and the pack is victorious for the time being.

They free quite a number of children under Wamp’s control. Kurt brings home Ben’s son unarmed and he is just in time to meet his new child. Due to the stress, Ben has gone into early labour. Ben is elated to have his son Liam back . Both Kurt and Ben welcome their beautiful daughter Hailey into the world. The journey is definitely not over for this pack. Wamp has been released by a dragon who killed all the Ancients who came to help in the process. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.

Omega Lost (The Rogue Pack 7) by Samantha Cayto

Title: Omega Lost Word Count:246 pgs
Genre: Paranormal Gay Romance/ Mpreg

Blurb:Bard didn’t hesitate to run from his old pack when his best friend needed him. His feral years were hard and even a tough gamma would rather live in a pack—so long as it is a good one led by an honorable alpha. The Rogue Pack proves to be the perfect new home for him to make his life. The only thing he lacks is a mate, and he has fought his attraction to the exquisite omega, Loki, for a while. When he is charged with Loki’s care, he is both elated and frustrated. He doubts the brat will ever see him as anything other than a captor.

Loki doesn’t understand why his brother forced him to leave their birth pack. No one who knows the answer is willing to tell him. That includes Bard, the annoyingly bossy and always right gamma who has dominion over him. Thwarted from returning to his arctic home, Loki takes his misery out on Bard in the form of bratty behavior. The sad thing is that he wants nothing more than to be happily mated and raising a family with a virile male like Bard. He simply can’t let go of his resentment toward those who keep him essentially a prisoner in the Rogue Pack.

The test of wills between Bard and Loki is coming to a head. Loki is no longer a pup. He’s becoming a mature omega and his heat is imminent. Bard will do anything to keep the boy safe, but when Loki refuses to be bred, Bard faces a terrible decision. The course he chooses may forever doom his growing love for the omega.

My Review: Ever since Loki has joined the pack with the ferals, he has always been viewed in a slightly negative light. At first, he was seen as a spoiled pup who has been overindulged by his brother Destin and the two Gammas Carr and Bard. As he flounders into adulthood, he is seen as a promiscuous, somewhat selfish, standoffish Omega. He is always seen as shirking his Omega duties and nature. He is always getting into some kind of trouble and running away from his protectors Gammas Carr and now Bard. Loki is aware of how he is viewed and it hurts him deeply, but he hides it through his defiance. There is an undercurrent of vulnerability that comes through in his unguarded moments. Loki feels cheated and he misses his home in the Arctic. He doesn’t understand why he was forced to flee with his brother in the dead of night.

The answer to that is held by the men who have been protecting him. They’ve all made a pact to keep this secret from Loki. Bard has started questioning this decision and slowly seeing the error of their ways. Bard has been with Loki since he was a pup. Unlike the others, watching the Omega grow into adulthood has fostered different feelings within him. Bard desires Loki and his wolf craves him to distraction. Above all else, he cares for Loki and would give him anything possible in his power. Now that Loki’s heat is imminent a decision has to be made quick or the Omega will die. Loki is in severe pain and his cries have put some of the other members of the pack in distress. It has forced Reed into early labour and Daniel is bristling with anger out of fear for his mate and unborn pup. Tensions are definitely high amongst the dominants.

Bard will mount and breed the Omega with or without his consent, he cannot watch Loki die. He knows it comes with a high price, Loki will certainly hate him once the deed is done. To him, this is the only recourse. He is in a really hard spot, no pun intended. On one hand he begs for Loki’s forgiveness for what he is about to do. On the other hand , his Gamma wolf is riding him doggedly, pushing him to take and breed his Omega finally. He tries to be as gentle as possible, but with Loki fighting diligently, it’s a slippery slope. Bard resists mating Loki as he knows this is a lifelong bond that cannot be broken. As much as he is willing to knot Loki to save his life ,he is unwilling to take away all of his choices. Even as strenuously as Loki fought, he can’t help but see the gentle caring that Bard gives him when his heat abates. Loki’s heat ends successfully in a pregnancy.

Most of Loki’s resentment stems from the fact that he is always kept in the dark. He feels like no one ever includes him in any decision making, it’s frustrating. He has no agency whatsoever and to him that’s the worst. He decides to step up and change things when the Omegas mention that the dominants are building a home so they can all live together. Loki storms out to Bard and lets his displeasure be heard about not being included in the plans. Bard apologizes for his lack of foresight, but Loki’s brother Destin doesn’t see why he is upset. Loki is learning how to navigate the pack as an adult and he is surprised when Bard defends him and seems to understand his position. The lines of communication are now open between Bard and Loki and they speak freely about what their feelings are towards each other. Bard now knows after talking to Loki that he doesn’t hate him, he just resented his high handed ways. Bard no longer feels totally hopeless about their future together when Loki asks him for time to sort out his feelings.

Loki’s reputation of a spoiled brat will be hard to evade, unless he proves himself. He courts danger unknowingly when they go on a moonlight pack run. Loki gets separated from the group and is charged by a black bear. Bard and another Beta Griffin comes to his rescue, but they are both hurt. Griffin is severely injured and unconscious and this causes a few people to be furious with Loki when they think he willfully ran away. Loki’s brother Destin is very upset and harsh words are exchanged between the two. The powder keg of emotions that they have been sitting on finally explodes. Loki goads Destin into revealing the secrets he has tried to protect him from since they ran from their pack. Loki is appalled and shattered to find out that his own father planned to rape and breed him in order to sire an alpha pup. Loki is even more upset and guilty when he thinks of all that he put Bard through, a Gamma who has sacrificed so much to protect him. He is overwhelmed with his newfound knowledge, but he thanks his brother for his sacrifice.

Loki is exhausted with the rollercoaster his feelings have been on. Finally, he acknowledges that Bard is the only mate he wants. He sees all of the sacrifices that Bard has made for him and his wellbeing. Loki is definitely on the road to adulthood and he is ditching all his brattiness. Until Bard lets it slip , that he likes a bit of bratty with his omega. These two are certainly in it for the long haul, it was a long road and a lot of uphill battles, but true love won the day. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

Claiming His Fate(Scarlet Mountain Pack 4) by Aspen Grey

Title: Claiming His Fate            Word Count:142 pgs
Genre: Paranormal Gay Romance, Mpreg

Blurb:The scent to change lives…

Seth is a hardworking alpha member of the Scarlet Mountain Pack, felling trees and turning them into lumber for the lodge. He’s content with his pack, but there’s something missing in his life — a mate. One day, on what should be another average run to the mill with a fresh load of pine, Seth smells something that turns his world upside down.

Harry is living life as a prisoner, an omega slave to his cold-blooded pack leader, Kade, who rules over a pack of captive omegas forced to work, or worse, bare his children. Once they provide him with a pup, he’s done with them, and with Harry’s heat approaching, he knows he’s next.

Seth almost loses it when he smells Harry’s scent and instantly knows he is his fated mate, but Kade isn’t about to let him go without a fight. Seth tracks Harry to a truck stop and saves him from the horrible future he was certainly facing.

Back at the lodge, love drunk off each other’s bodies and scents, the two realize they are meant for one another. Fueled by desire, Harry’s heat arrives like a speeding train, sending Seth into a frenzy. The only thing on his mind? Put a baby in Harry’s belly and bind him to him forever.

But Kade’s pack is still out there, with a pack of captive omega slaves, and Seth can’t let that continue. He saved Harry, but the rest are still prisoners. Rallying his pack, Seth sets out for the truck stop, but when he arrives, Kade’s pack is gone.

Is the vicious alpha still out there? Tracking them? Hunting for Harry? And will Seth be able to save him a second time?…

Claiming His Fate is the fourth in the Scarlet Mountain Pack series, but can be read as a stand alone. NO cheating, no cliffhangers, and all the sweet, sexy MPREG goodness you’ve come to love from Aspen Grey.

My Review: Seth, one of the alphas at the Scarlet Mountain Pack has just finished dropping off lumber at the Woodcreek mill when he smells the most enticing scent. He turns just in time to see the most beautiful, innocent omega there is. From the look on his face, he knows the omega scents him too. The only problem, the omega Harry seems to be under guard. Seth is not quite sure what’s going on , but it’s definitely suspicious. This is made obvious when he is immediately rebuffed as he approaches the guard to ask him about the omega. Seth knows he needs to bide his time and decides to follow them home. He finds out that a despicable alpha named Kade is in charge.

Seth knows his fated mate is in danger when he sees the hovel he is taken to. It is a truck stop that is infested by drunks, addiction and sex workers. He knows he can’t leave him in this place. Help comes from an unexpected place, a guy named Matias , a disgruntled alpha of Kade’s helps them to escape. The only reason Matias stays is to protect all the other helpless omega’s Kade has imprisoned.

Once Seth has Harry safe at the lodge, their ardor for each other is all encompassing. They are in a frenzy, but Seth sees his mate’s innocence shining through. Harry knows he’s a virgin but he can’t get enough of his sexy alpha. There is a fire raging in him that makes him want to be slutty for his alpha. Seth loves it, he sees how perfect Harry is for him. For the first time since his parents died, Harry knows he’s finally found his home with his alpha.

As happy as they both are, Seth knows he can’t just live blissfully while the imprisoned omega’s suffer. Seth talks to alpha Tate and they decide to scout the truck stop. By the time they get there Seth realize they are too late. They’ve all absconded in the middle of the night. It is disappointing, but life continues on as usual. Harry finds out he is pregnant and even though he is ecstatic, he has debilitating morning sickness.

Their past comes back to haunt them in the middle of the night when the despicable alpha Kade shows up in their territory. Seth can’t wait to tear him to pieces, especially when he sees that Kade’s wolfs are hesitant to fight. Seth gets a little reckless and is almost killed. It is only when he hears his mate encouraging him through his bond that he finds the strength to bring about Kade’s demise. However , he is seriously hurt but he is conscious enough to hold his mate’s hand while he delivers a beautiful baby boy named Graham. The Scarlet Mountain Pack is definitely growing by leaps and bounds. They are always there to help each other to protect their loved ones and bring them home safely. They’ve also gained allies in Matias who is now the successor of Kade’s pack. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

Claiming His Love (Scarlet Mountain Pack 2) by Aspen Grey

Title: Claiming His Love Word Count: 152pgs
Genre: Paranormal Gay Romance, Mpreg

Blurb:Before the Love Knot, before the Scarlet Mountain Pack…

Alpha, Bryce’s job at the lumber mill is hard and routine, but when a new omega shows up for work, his scent leaves Bryce helpless and he knows he’s found his one.

Clarence is taking his first job at the mill to learn about wood and become a carpenter like his fathers. He’s ready for the hard work, but he isn’t ready for Bryce.

Bryce knows what that scent means — it means he’s just met his fated mate! But there’s a major problem: Jeremiah, his cruel, sadistic pack leader, wants Clarence for himself. He’s going to take him back to “The Booty Wing” of his motel to be used as just another captive breeder to provide him with pups. But Bryce isn’t about to sit back and watch that happen.

With a decision that will change his life forever, Bryce revolts, attacks Jeremiah and escapes with Clarence on the back of his bike. They spend an unforgettable night together, but when Bryce wakes up in the morning, Clarence is gone without a trace.

Three years later, and Bryce is living at the Scarlet Mountain Pack lodge with his new pack leader Tate, when he catches a scent…a familiar scent…one that he hasn’t smelled in three years, and it’s going to change everything.

Claiming His Love is the second book in the Scarlet Mountain Pack series, and can be read as a stand alone but is more rewarding as part of a series.

Filled with spicy, knotting, MPREG bliss, no cheating and no cliffhanger, this book is extra spicy! Be careful your Kindles don’t set on fire.

My Review:From the moment Bryce sees the shy omega walking in the mess hall at the mill where he works he knows it’s his fated mate. From the look on the omega’s face, he feels the same pull. There is just one problem, Bryce’s arrogant alpha Jeremiah wants to claim Clarence as a brood mare. Bryce tries not to openly show any emotion toward the omega, because he knows his alpha will use it against him somehow.

Clarence is only at the mill to learn about wood so that he can one day take over his father’s furniture business. He is certainly not expecting to smell his fated mate as soon as he walks through the door. Alpha Jeremiah also poses another problem, it is obvious he thinks he is entitled to any omega he lays eyes on. Clarence knows he is in true danger when Jeremiah and a couple betas kidnap him after work. Bryce knows he needs to come up with a plan to rescue his mate. When he notices the betas leaving Jeremiah’s room, he knows he has to act fast. He attacks and kills the betas and before the alpha even knows what’s happening, he is flat on his back with an enraged wolf on top. Bryce incapacitates him and flees with his mate on his bike.

Bryce finds them a safe haven staying with his friend Martin. Clarence feels like he can finally breathe and enjoy being in the presence of his fated mate. The passion ignites between the two men and carries them down a road filled with lust. Bryce knows that his innocent omega has not experienced his heat, so he finds other ways to explore his body while leaving his innocence intact. Little did they know that they would only have one passion filled night, before Clarence vanished into thin air.

It would be three long years of heartache, pain and hard living before they are reunited. In that time, Bryce has met new people that have become lifelong friends. Tate is one of those people, the alpha of the Scarlet Mountain pack founded on Bryce’s insistence. They are truly growing as a pack and have done well for themselves protecting each other. In the meantime, Clarence has been living like a slave under Jeremiah who blackmailed him into leaving Bryce. Jeremiah uses the threat of killing Clarence’s parents to keep him in line. The only good thing is that since smelling his mate, Clarence can’t experience his heat with anyone else. That is the only thing that saves him from being sexually abused by Jeremiah. It doesn’t stop the violence however.

It is purely on a whim that Bryce is able to find his mate again. When two of the foxes Red and Kitchi inform Bryce that there is a wolf pack on the edge of their territory, they decide to check it out. Bryce is incensed to see the much hated alpha Jeremiah again,but it’s his mate’s scent that bowls him over. He is overjoyed , but also filled with rage. He unleashes on a few of the betas quickly killing them. Bryce only injures Jeremiah, but he realizes that the place will be overrun if he doesn’t take his mate away. They barely make it out alive.

Once they are safe back at the pack house Bryce explains the situation to his alpha Tate. Tate understands and supports his decision to get back his mate. When they are alone, the connection between them sparks. The feelings are unadulterated and primal and causes the dominance to explode from Bryce. He knows he is a little bit rough and tries to temper it, but Clarence gives himself over to that primordial instinct that Bryce shows of needing to mark his mate. Clarence relishes the power of Bryce’s untamed passion. They make the most of the night, because they know their troubles are far from over.

They strategize the next day and come up with a plan to strike first. Bryce acknowledges he needs to eliminate the threat of the other alpha. It is not made easy, especially since he has to take Clarence back to sway a few of the alphas to their side. Everything starts off as planned, but when a group of betas target Tate and he is seriously injured, it all devolves. It is sheer determination and the fear for Clarence that keeps Bryce fighting. In the end he kills Jeremiah, but he doesn’t walk away unscathed. He has been shot in the stomach.

It is touch and go there for a bit at the Scarlet Mountain Pack, with two of their main alphas down. It is weeks before they recover. Clarence stays by his mate’s side and try to coerce him back to the land of the living through their bond. Finally, Bryce comes back to him and Clarence can give him the good news that he is pregnant. Bryce is over the moon when he hears this. The Scarlet Mountain Pack is definitely filling up with two new alphas and a new baby on the way which turns out to be a boy named Bruce. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

Claiming His Mate (Scarlet Mountain Pack 1) by Aspen Grey

Title: Claiming His Mate Word Count: 154 pgs
Genre: Paranormal Gay Romance, Mpreg

Blurb:Alpha, Tate Hunter’s job as a bouncer at the shifter-only night club, The Love Knot, is pretty routine – tossing out drunks, breaking up fights – but when he saves an omega from a hungry pack of alphas, he catches a scent that will change his life forever.

Kyle Crubbers is going nowhere – living at home in the room he grew up in, spending his nights alone, until his mom convinces him to leave the house to search for a mate. But seriously? The Love Knot? That’s not where you find Mr. Right – it’s where you find Mr. Right Now!

Tate can’t believe it when he catches the scent of his fated mate, but to his horror, the beautiful boy is being attacked by an alpha named Lucas and his pack of sickos, looking to bump fuzzies with the nubile omega whether he wants it or not. Leaping into action, Tate saves the poor guy from whatever horrors they had planned for him.

Taking him to his lodge, Tate tends to Kyle’s wounds, and the two know without a doubt that they’re meant for one another. Tate is determined to claim his mate and put a pup in his belly, but it’s not long before they realize the other pack is still out there – and they’re hunting for Kyle.

It’s time for Tate to step up and be the alpha leader he’s meant to be. But will he be able to form a new pack in time to stop Lucas and protect his new omega?

…The scent of a fated mate…It’s a one in a million miracle most wolves never experience, and he will do anything to make sure Kyle is his forever.

Claiming His Mate is the first in the Scarlet Mountain Pack series, with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and all the spicy, knotting, MPREG goodness to melt your Kindle screens. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…;)

My Review: Tate’s job as a bouncer at the Love Knot is usually just a show of dominance where certain other alphas like to show off. Tate’s very good at reining in his wolf most times. However, when he smells the sweet smell of an omega who is exuding fear and realize that it’s his mate, Tate loses it. Kyle’s night on the town turns into a nightmare before it has really begun, when an alpha and his betas try to kidnap him. He starts to scream when he realizes he’s in real trouble. When alpha Tate comes to his rescue, he knows he is faced with his mate, a dream come true. Tate quickly kills the two betas, but the despicable alpha Lucas gets away.

Tate is eager to take his mate home so he can recover from the failed kidnapping. Kyle is excited when he first sees his new home. Tate talks about his dead parents and the legacy they left for him. He talks about how his father envisioned a big pack like home that could be a safe haven. Kyle loves to see his alpha’s passion and knows he wants to make that vision come true by being the best mate possible. Tate can’t wait to bond with his mate , but Kyle hasn’t had his first heat yet or lost his innocence.

Their vision starts to come alive when Tate’s friends Bryce and Martin comes by to see how they fared after the attack. Bryce proposes that they form their own pack and that Tate become their pack alpha. Tate is excited, but knows he needs to talk to his mate first. Kyle is just as excited and encourages his alpha knowing what a great leader he will be. Before they know it , their pack has grown in size with the newest additions being Kyle’s mom and Bryce’s sister. The pack house is coming together nicely and everyone is settling in.

Finally, Kyle’s heat hits and Tate is overcome with the need to be buried inside his omega. Kyle can’t wait for Tate to be his first and only. Tate introduces his sweet innocent mate to the unexplored passions of the mated bed. It is enlightening and all consuming for them both. There is nothing like the bond between mates. The next morning it is through that bond that Kyle knows that there is trouble on the horizon when he wakes to an empty bed. Tate, Bryce and Martin has gone out to deal with the troublesome alpha Lucas who is infringing on their territory. It soon turns into a bloodbath. Tate kills another beta, but Martin his friend is seriously injured. They are afraid they will lose him when a small group of foxes jump in and offer medical help.

Tate and the foxes alpha Red make a pact to fuse both packs together to fight against Lucas who is a thorn in their sides as well. Tate sees how much their medical training will come in handy when Kyle announces his pregnancy. Everyone is ecstatic about their news and life continues as usual. They all live communally, even the foxes and it is clear that both packs have mutual respect for each other.

The next attack couldn’t have come at a worst time, Kyle is in labour. Tate takes the time to reassure his omega that he will come back to him safely. They have a heartfelt parting, but Tate needs to face impending danger so he can protect his precious omega and their pup. Kyle is worried, but he knows he has to do his part in delivering their pup into the world with the help of Osana, the fox medic.

Tate and his pack emerge victorious from battle , but definitely not unscathed. They have lost one of the foxes Ethan and Bryce is injured. Tate goes back just in time to entreat his omega into pushing their bundle of joy into the world. They name her Scarlet in honour of Ethan’s red hair. They are all saddened by their loss, but they see great things in store for the future of the Scarlet Mountain Pack. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

However, because they are so powerful, they will need a fourth to complete them, to calm them and help them reach their full potential.

Aden, a young were, has been his pack’s omega ever since, at the age of fifteen, he didn’t shift like everyone else. Caught, reviled, and tortured because of his empathic abilities, he knew on the night he was told to run as sport for the pack hunters that it would end in his death. What he didn’t know, however, was that on the same night he’d also meet the love of his life and a pathway to answers, because Aden is far more than just a pack omega.

What begins as a hunt soon becomes a new adventure as Aden discovers that he has not only one, but three destined mates, and his role as lover is far more than trivial. The fate of all humankind rests upon it.

My Review : This was definitely a remarkable feat for this author, to create a world so interesting and to spin and weave a werewolf story that has never been told. Usually, I can barely even tolerate threesomes because the plot gets so jumbled and oftentimes you can’t understand who says what. This was not the case here. Here we have a foursome, they are all  very distinctive and their voices echo throughout.

Aden, the omega is saved by a trio of alpha werewolves from his pack who has been torturing him and seem to be intent on killing him. The strongest of alphas  Blaze is the one we are introduced to first. He is the strength of their foursome, the one who makes the decisions. Darric is the sensualist, and Conner is the empath, the one who feels the most intense emotions. Aden feels the most comfortable with Conner,  but only because they can both ‘feel’ each other  really well. Aden is the heart, peace and comfort of their foursome. They need him so much more than he even understands.

Aden has a lot to learn from these three breathtakingly handsome men who he feels he is unworthy of having. Aden is definitely stunned when they tell him that they are his mates and that he completes their circle by being the psi and omega that they have long awaited for over 600 years. With their Orion’s Circle now complete,  they can all take on the weight of the world and begin reparations to humankind. 

All three men  lavished and pampered their newly found mate. The intimacy amongst the four of them was astounding. They were indeed a circle, there was no beginning and no end. Nobody was left out and they all loved and worked together in cohesion.

Their peace and tranquility is soon ripped asunder when Aden allows himself to be deceived by the entreaties of his former pack mates who he thought were friends. By the time his mate Blaze finds him, everything is a mess. Aden’s pack mates tries to take his manhood away by burning him with acid. Aden now feels insecure and believes he has nothing to offer his mates. A part of the Orion’s Circle ritual is that he needs to mount Blaze in order for their circle to be complete. To top it all off, Blaze has turned his back on Aden believing that he willingly left his mates. It is not  until Darric smells the truth on Aden, that things have a chance to be repaired. It was very emotional watching the foursome get back to the level of comfort that they were used to.

Their makeup sex was incredibly hot. They soon find out that their precious omega Aden is pregnant. They are all excited and they overwhelm their mate with all their pampering. Aden embraces it and relish in his newfound self confidence. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. He saw Darric’s soft smile and heard the pleasure in his mind from all of them. “Breathe with me.” Aden dissolved under Darric’s calm words. He was ready for this. He felt more lube plastered around his tight hole as Blaze eased in slowly. Aden moved restlessly. His lips parted on a cry as pain flared suddenly in his ass.   Blaze, please. “Look at me Aden, keep looking at me.” Darric brushed small kisses on Aden’s lips, so gentle. He whimpered at the pain, but Darric was almost detaching him from it. Blaze stopped inching and held still. Aden thought he would split in two. There’s no way. He wrenched his eyes from Darric and looked at Blaze, ready to shout. Blaze was poised, completely still. Every tendon stood out on his neck from the effort of not moving. Harsh gasps left his lips, and his eyes were screwed tight shut. Blaze was barely hanging on by a thread. Aden was awestruck that this powerful man cared so much about his comfort to discipline himself like this. Taking a slow breath and keeping his eyes firmly fixed on Blaze, Aden finally relaxed and slowly moved, swinging his hips a little, inviting Blaze deeper. ( There is just something so breathtakingly perfect with this performance,  all of them moving in tandem with each other.)

2. Blaze’s eyes snapped open, and he slid in until his hips pressed against Aden’s. Aden melted as a wide smile shone across the man’s face—a smile he had put there. Aden arched as Darric’s teeth found his nipple, and the gentle tug took his focus from the discomfort. Blaze inched again, and Conner tongued his cock. Pain and pleasure melded into one.   Darric caught his mouth and Aden was lost. It was impossible to feel this good. Long swipes from Conner’s tongue had Aden ready to shoot again in seconds. Darric swallowed every warning moan, and Blaze slid out, then back in, time and time again until Aden was delirious with need. His mind swirled with unnamed emotions as his whole body tightened and thundered towards orgasm. Just as he reached the pinnacle of the hill, Conner pushed down and deep throated him. And that was what it took to launch him off the cliff. He barely heard Blaze shout with his own release. ( Greatttt teamwork  😉.)
