A MelanieM Review: Bitten By Fate (Regent’s Park Pack #6) by Annabelle Jacobs

Standard

Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5

Daryl plays with fire and gets burned by fate…

Former Primrose Pack member Jason Black happily accepted his role as beta in the new Regent’s Hill pack, knowing that merging the two was the best decision for everyone involved. Daryl Easton is loyal and honest but wary of change. The joining of the two packs wasn’t his preferred outcome, and he’s struggling to see all the newcomers as pack, including those now working alongside him.

When the alpha council proposes a two-week pack-building course to help improve troubled relationships, Jason and Daryl are sent along as backup. It soon becomes clear that the unit members and their betas won’t be the only ones taking part in tasks—Daryl and Jason will have challenges of their own to complete.

With the full moon adding to the rising tension, emotions are volatile, and tempers flare among the unit members. Jason and Daryl become closer than either of them expected, but with such opposing views on relationships, a messy outcome seems inevitable unless Daryl can let go of the past.

Bitten By Fate is the series finale for Annabelle Jacobs’ Regent’s Park Pack series, a group of novels I have thoroughly enjoyed.  Each with a Bitten By in the title, they tell the story of a new pack, the Regent’s Park Pack, struggling to come together under a new Alpha after devastating pack wars.  The animosity and territory arguments escalating between a neighbor pack cause most of the anguish, built in mystery, and suspense.  And even romance.

Really this series has it all.  But by the sixth story, most of characters highlighted by the many plot threads had found their mates and completed the mate bond .  Plus all the danger and tension was almost gone as the two packs were now combined under one Alpha, Cam, and his pack.  So a finale story made sense to bring a sense of closure and tie up any loose ends.

Is Bitten By Fate the strongest story in the series?  No, not in my opinion.  For one reason, I don’t feel that Daryl and Jason are “fated” for each other, like the title implies.  great and yes, given the timing in their lives, perfect now for each other.  But fated, in that sense, they were meant to be together?  I never got that.    Which is not to say I didn’t adore them as a couple because I certainly did.    But maybe Bitten Finally At Last would have suited these two far better.

The idea of the Council using corporate “pack building” sessions and exercises, albeit ones only a werewolf could handle, tickled me.  And it worked so well in this story for so many characters.  I could easily identify with both sides pulling together to accomplish their goals.  And Jacobs’ descriptions went a long way to bringing it all to life. What was over the top hot?  The two person Beta exercises the Council had Jason and Daryl do, especially the blindfold ones.  Get out the fans now for those.    They also accomplished the job of bringing the readers intimately into the evolving relationship and making us care where it was going.  Right into that bedroom!

There was a subplot about characters from the other now defunct pack still causing trouble that led to a major story element towards the end.  That aspect of the narrative I felt needed more substance and plot development to work.  Not the reverberations, but the actual person behind it.  That was very shallow and I wished we had more of his story to give his actions more power.

In the end, I was happy to see so many characters that I had come to love throughout the series in this story and to watch Daryl and Jason get their HEA.

Bitten By Fate, like all the other books, is not a standalone story but rather one that should be read as part of the whole series and in the order they were written  to understand the universe and the history behind the pack and its members.  Highly entertaining, full of action, suspense, romance, and heat, if you love the supernatural and werewolves, this is a series for you.  That includes Bitten By Her, I loved that one too.  Strong female betas?  You bet!  And she’s a familiar character throughout the series.

So six books to read, six books to love.  Six couples to get to know.   Six HEA. What more could you want?  I highly recommend them all.

Cover Design: Natasha Snow. Nice cover with the wolf in the background but not especially pertinent to the storyline.

A MelanieM Review : Bitten By Her (Regent’s Park Pack #4.5) by Annabelle Jacobs

Standard

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

Brought together by fate, torn apart by family.

Rachel Tregarrak, Penwith pack beta and daughter of the alpha, has always called the rugged Cornish coast her home. With its beautiful landscapes, bracing sea air, and vast spaces to run, she can’t imagine living anywhere else.

After years of living with her mother in her grandfather’s pack, Sara Gallen returns to Penzance to be with her alpha father and her brothers. She wants to build their relationships, get to know the rest of her family better than occasional visits allow.

When their paths cross on the full moon, the attraction is immediate and instinctive. But Sara’s father refuses to allow such a union and forbids any further contact. Sara finds solace with her grandmother in her alpha council residence, and Rachel is sent to a London pack to keep her out of trouble. Both women feel the desperate ache of an uncompleted bond, but unless they find a way to be together, it’ll fade to nothing and their connection will be lost.

In Bitten by the Alpha we were introduced to two young women, weres whose bond was being denied by one’s Alpha (and father.  It was an important secondary storyline as Rachel Tregarrak would end up being sent away from her pack to the Regent’s Park Pack to act as a temporary Beta and standin for Gareth’s unit.  The readers learned to love her and her would be mate Sara, separated by Sara’s father’s hidebound rules and pack regulations regarding female roles.  The author had done such a great job with these characters and their heartbreaking dilemma that we needed to know more and we wanted a resolution.

Bitten By Her (Regent’s Park Pack #4.5) is Annabelle Jacobs answer for everyone’s begging for their story.  It’s everything I was waiting for and more.

Surrounded by familiar characters from previous stories, we get Rachel and Sara’s story from the moment they meet under the full moon and everything goes disastrously wrong.   A mate bond denied, a deep pain that doesn’t fade and two women sent away from their territories to keep a bond from forming.

Told from two points of view, their separation and incomplete bond is  wrenchingly vivid.  Even as two factions, Sara’s grandmother and part of the Council and Cam, Alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, work to bring the two women together without starting a pack war, the reader feels every bit of the pain and heartache of the cost of the separation.  Even as both need to find a way to continue on day by day, especially Rachel in her important duties as Beta in a unit that needs her.

Jacobs does a marvelous job with the characterizations as always and the tension and drama here is off the charts.  I love the connection and chemistry between Rachel and Sara.  They were perfection.  Sara’s grandmother, the Council, and all of the Regent’s Park Pack included here just bring this story to life.

This is an amazing series and I can’t wait to see who has the next story.  Bitten By Her was an  absolute delight to read and  it satisfied all my expectations for Rachel and Sara’s story.

If you’ve been following this series, than this is a story you won’t want to miss.  None of these are standalones and work within the Regent’s Park Universe.  Read them together to get all the relationships and connections.  I recommend them all.

Cover art: Natasha Snow.  That’s a wonderful cover.  I love the picture of Rachel and Sara with foreheads touching.  That’s moving and perfect for the story.

A MelanieM Review : Bitten By The Alpha (Regent’s Park Pack #4) by Annabelle Jacobs

Standard

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

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.

One of my favorite series is back with Annabelle Jacobs’ Bitten By The Alpha.  I’ve been waiting to see if Cam, Alpha of the Regent’s Park  Pack would get a mate and a HEA and here he does.  Through the first three books, much is made of Cam’s mourning the loss of his human wife, a woman he loved deeply.  And all the time while he grieved, Gareth, his Beta, has loved him.  What is worse, he’s known that Cam is his mate, something Cam could never have with his human wife.

Jacobs has several plot lines running through Bitten By The Alpha as she  always does with her stories.  Entertwined with the difficulties of any romance between Cam and Gareth (and they are huge), are the pack problems that have come up with melding the two packs, Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park, together now that the alpha from Primrose Hill has had his powers removed and been jailed for his crimes.  Still, even more troublesome are the undercurrents that someone is looking to destabilize the newly formed pack and its Alpha.

Yes, hooked in good with all the drama and suspense yet at heart it’s still a love story, although at first you’re not sure how reciprocated it’s going to be.  All the emotions that have to be worked through, all the dynamics of the pack and emotionally fraught issues between the men that need to be examined, including Cam’s sexuality are played out here.  Jacobs also supplies us with an amazing side story and strong female character who will luckily get her own story and LGBT romance, a fact I recently learned and am thrilled about.

This story is a clear representation of why I love this series so.  The characters are full of personality, well rounded, and layered.  The stories have multiple plotlines that keep you often on the edge of your seat, entertained as well as swooning over whatever couple is at the heart of the main story thread with a strong cast of characters that continue to show up book after book, making everything both familiar and fresh.   Yes, I am eagerly awaiting the next one in the series and I think if you love shifters and romance, this is a series you shouldn’t miss out on.  Start at the beginning and work your way through all the stories as each builds on the one prior to it.  I highly recommend them all.

Cover Design: Natasha Snow.  I love the cover and think it works well for the story.

A MelanieM Review: Bitten by Desire (Regent’s Park Pack #3) by Annabelle Jacobs

Standard

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

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.

Bitten by Desire, the third in the Regent’s Park Pack by Annabelle Jacobs, is my favorite by far.  That’s saying a lot because I’ve loved them all.  But these two shifters, Alec Knight of the R Pack and Mark Appleton of the PR Pack really got to me.

First, there’s the Romeo and Juliet aspect of their situation or in this case Romeo and Jules as their two packs are at war.  Mark has already been a victim of his Alpha’s heinous behavior and need to win at any cost, putting Mark at forefront of a Council investigation into both pack’s recent actions. It also brought him to Alec’s attention as part of the storyline in Bitten By Design (Regent’s Park Pack, #2).  In Bitten by Desire, the pull Mark and Alec feel towards each other intensifies as Alec is unable to stay away from Mark, no matter the consequences.

Jacobs gives us both shifter’s perspectives, letting us feel the danger of the situation and the inevitability that drives them forward…yes, it’s the mate bond already forming.  It’s primal, sexual, and so very hot!  Alec also has an angst filled past that’s haunting him, keeping him in an unsettled state, along with his uncertain feelings for Mark and the stress of the Council’s investigation.  The author’s writing drops us into the hearts and minds of these men, letting us feel the push/pull of the mating bond as it strengthens…and it’s every bit as sexy and wild as it sounds.

Plus yes, there’s the fact that Mark’s Alpha is plotting against the R Pack.  Annabeth Jacobs continually ramps up the suspense and the danger around Mark and those around him the entire story, keeping the readers right on the edge.  This was a successful element here and my only disappointment was the sentences doled out at the end.  For me, I thought the Council was too light handed considering what Howell and his Betas had done.  But perhaps that was just me. Or maybe there’s more to come.  I hope so.  I love this series and for me Bitten By Desire is one of the best.  The writing is excellent, the romance primal, hot and shifter perfect,  and the storyline full of suspense and happy endings!   For the fullest reading pleasure, start with the first story, Bitten By Mistake and work your way to Bitten By Desire!  I highly recommend them all.

Cover Design: Natasha Snow is nice and hot.  But I’d like a little more detail.
