There is a law that binds an Alpha to his wolf and stops him from hurting others of his pack. If an Alpha lashes out with the intention to harm, then his wolf will stop it, forcing on the transition…but one wolf has found the loophole.

Chain is determined to inflict harm. He sends out the one woman he wants but cannot have, Victoria. She will be his Alpha Bait, luring another Alpha to his death, thus freeing Chain from the control of his wolf. For most of her adult life Victoria has been at the mercy of Chain. He scares her more than anything else. Doing as she’s told, Victoria sets the trap in order to gain Scorch’s attention.

Scorch is a good leader and strong Alpha. He will not hurt anyone. When a beautiful red-head ends up in his care, he cannot turn away from the attraction she inspires. Their wolves are mates, and they’re destined to be together.

However, what will Scorch do when he realizes Victoria is with him to lure him to his death? Can she really send the man she loves to his grave? Being Alpha Bait was never her choice, but who really holds her loyalty, Chain or Scorch?


Review: I love about every book this author writes and can’t wait to read more from her.

I thought I had heard about all the alpha wolves that had gone mad and just snapped. I have to say that I was wrong when I met Chain he blew everyone away. He is supposed to take care of his pack but he has found ways to hurt them. He wants to do the unthinkable and kill another alpha so that he can break away from the wolf inside him. He wants to control Vanessa and make her his mate but she says no and he wolf stops him.

Vanessa is trying to protect what’s left of her pack. Chain has found ways to kill his pack and he uses a chain to keep them all in line. He uses the chain for everything that he thinks his pack needs. Vanessa has told Chain no too many times and is beat with the chain. She is sent out to do a mission she really doesn’t want to do. She would rather kill herself than put Scorch in harms way.

Scorch finds out after he meets Vanessa that she is his mate. He wants to kill the person that caused her to almost die. Now he just needs for her to mate with him and tell him the truth. Once he finds out who her alpha is and what he is doing to his pack, he wants to be the one to do something to Chain and to protect the woman that he loves.

I feel in love with Scorch and his pack. Everyone was treated the same and everyone seemed to get along. You could leave at any time. This is one of the best books about wolves that I have read in awhile. I just couldn’t seem to put it down. I set down and didn’t get up til it was done. Now I will have to read the rest of this series. The characters in this book were written very well and you knew who you would like from the very beginning of the book. You didn’t have to keep going back and forth. If you have not had the chance to read a book by this author then you really need to read some.
