"The Alpha's Domination" is the 4th book in the Alpha Shifter Collection by the awesome Sam Crescent. I'm a huge fan of her work, mostly because her characters are real people. (Or half people, as shifters may be) But they all have their flaws, they're not perfect, and the woman aren't supermodels.
Daniel is the alpha of his pack of wolves and they are getting worried. His mate, Dawn, has been holding him at arm's length for over a year. While she calls him Master, she only allows him to punish her, he's not allowed to touch her otherwise. Daniel has had enough.
So he takes Dawn in hand, and takes her home to find out why she is denying they are mates, what her secrets are, and why she feels no pain. She needs protecting, and he'll be the one to do it.
This is another wonderful outing by Sam with a strong male alpha lead in Daniel and a brilliant female like Dawn, I also love the positive body image messages it sends.
Daniel is an Alpha and a Dom. For the last year he’s been trying to convince Dawn that they’re mates. He sees the way she holds herself back. Not once during their time together has she trusted him enough to give herself to him. It’s time to take over and show her who the real Dom is.
Dawn craves pain and no one can handle her need. When Daniel discovers her secret there’s no backing out. She can’t feel pain and it’s up to her Dom to protect her.
Her condition makes her vulnerable to predators. Daniel will not let anything happen to his mate and will do everything in his power to protect her, even from the person who wants to hurt her most.
