Emma needs a fresh start so she packs up her car and drives hundreds of miles north to a
small market town in the Lake District, here she will be a housekeeper in an B & B, a
total change from her previous job, a vet’s assistant. On arriving Emma doesn’t expect her reaction to Mike Cross, the town mayor. She instantly has a physical reaction to him, a man has never evoked this type of attraction from her before. Even when she tries to
ignore it she can’t, it’s like her body and mind are calling to his.
Emma’s reason to leave London soon catch’s up to her and her eyes are opened to a
world she believed to be fictional. Werewolves were real and the man she was drawn to
was the Alpha of the local pack. Also the man she left London to get away from was one
too. He was also adamant Emma was his.
So after discovering this new world at a lot of things started to make sense, the intense
feelings she had for a virtual stranger, they were mates which brought with it a whole
new set of problems. Along the way new discoveries are made and bonds that will
hopefully last a lifetime, if no one tries to take it away.
A review by Cara Davidson
If I was asked to write a one word review of the Novella, Emma’s Alpha, it would be “Yummy.” If I could use three, it would be “Yummy, what’s next?!?” This novella is the story of Emma and Mike (a great alpha wolf), and an introduction into the Derwent Pack with great secondary characters who will (hopefully) make up the cast of forthcoming novels. Ms. Clark was able to give a great foundation into the inner workings of the werewolves of her creation, as well as background info on the Council and Packs. As always with novellas, you wish for more, but the story is well told, and believable- and, contains that rare find in paranormal fiction, a heroine who doesn’t have palpitations over the existence of werewolves (we all know we want one!).
The only issue I had, and not much of one, was Rachel- she came out of left field. However, it was something Emma was concerned about, so her existence and reaction weren’t outside the realm of possibilities. Brian has a ton of issues, and is a definitely an unlikeable, unredeemable bad guy. The sex scenes with Emma and Mike are deliciously hot, which is always a big plus. Emma has a bit of a rough life, but you hear no complaints from her- she is a genuinely likable heroine, and deserves her own great HEA, which is delivered. I would strongly recommend this book, a perfect beach read if you are don’t mind the heat it generates!
