The Mistress and the Hellhound

Smut-Shorties: City Wolves, #13

This has been a fabulous story line and the twists and turns just keep coming. I've been enamored of Archer since the beginning - who wouldn't? He's hot with confidence to spare and has that good boy/bad boy thing going on. He minds Reena when she's being Mistress of the City, but behind closed doors it's all him. That makes him and Reena a perfect couple, since she is so sick of being the one always in charge. It is refreshing and hot to be handled by a man who knows what he wants and goes after it.

The story brings out the politics of pack life again, and for being alphas the men are quite whiny. I found my eyes rolling several times at the attempts of the weaker alphas trying to manipulate Reena. As if! The surprise showing of Archer's true shifter identity was totally awesome and I loved the references to childhood stories told to keep kids in line, and that it was all a legend. Until it was standing in the middle of the room. Awesome read.

Book Blurb for The Mistress and the Hellhound

A Mistress’ work is never done… Not when there’s a hellhound in town.

Mistress of the City, Reena Leroy, has been bedding new werewolf Archer Davis since the Choosing. He’s hot, the sex is fantastic. Just one problem… He’s never shifted properly, and without it, he’s seen as ‘less’ in Lycan society.

Of course, there’s always someone with an angle. This time it’s the Council of Alphas, who have decided to use Archer’s little shifting problem and his continued presence in Reena’s bed as an excuse to remove her from power. Gearing up for a fight, Reena needs all her wits about her to deal with the council. Until Archer’s shifting problem is revealed as less of a problem, and more of a case of mistaken identity…

Now Reena’s problems include a coup, a werewolf pack without an alpha, and a hot as hell, definitely NOT wolf intent on making her his as soon as possible.
