Genre: Paranormal Romance, Short Story
Pages: ebook
Published: June 3rd, 2015
Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon Freebie)

Twelve kidnapped young women, a lonely island, and a hauntingly sensual curse.

A young woman named Sophie finds herself among the twelve kidnapped from their homes and taken to Wolf Island. There they are forced to participate in the Choosing, an ancient ritual that binds them to a man who is more than he seems. She refuses to submit to their demands and plots only to escape, but she finds herself entranced by the man to whom she is bound. His alluring eyes catch her like a moth to a flame, and she finds herself falling into a world of dark desires and feral lust.

Oooooo the curse of the short story. When they are good they are too short. This needed to be a full-on book, but alas, there is a series of short stories. I want to read them all now. 


This was a unique story. There is more to this story even though it is so short and it seems like a cut and dry story. Depth! Yes, there is depth in this PNR. 

A group of gals are kidnapped to be sacrificed upon the altar of matrimony. They are blood-tied to the pack and their future mates. I wonder WHY they have to get a human woman and turn them into werewolves. Can they only have sons naturally? I am curious and I want to learn more about this world. You see the story in Sophia’s eyes so you know as little as she does. So confusing, so intriguing at the same time. 

I’m glad there is no insta-love for Sophia and her mate. They both did not choose this and now they must learn to love each other. Yes, there is some lust, but that was due to the blood-tie ritual. I’m glad they are both trying to escape in some shape or form. He wants to break this tie and she wants to save the other girls and get back home. 

I do hope we find out more about Sophie and her human life. She feels flat right now. I’ll give this a pass right now because 1) this is a short story and 2) she is in the middle of trying to escape and she hasn’t had a moment to think about her life before all this nonsense. However, I hope the next installment gives her some more character building. Of course, I can’t wait to learn more about this world as well. MORE PLEASE!!!!

I’ll give this 3 stars. Pretty good, but it is lacking in some spots.
