Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the ass, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst–and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated Alpha—his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.


Review: Two of my favorite genres combine in a perfect blend of a paranormal motorcycle club romance in a new series by Ellis Leigh.

Claiming His Fate, the first book in the Feral Breed Motorcycle series, creates a foundation for an exciting new world that combines the rawness found in Sons of Anarchy with the paranormal elements of wolf shifters. There is no doubt that Rebel Lynch is a dominant Alpha. He’s on the track of a rogue shifter when he comes face to face with his mate.

Charlotte has no idea what Rebel is, but she can’t deny the powerful attraction. Before she has time to process her feelings, she gets caught up in a dangerous situation and gets a crash course in shifters.

Filled with action and panty-dripping sexuality, this was a hot read from start to finish. It was refreshing to read about a curvy female character rather than a stick-thin super model. What makes it even better is that Charlotte is no wimpy woman; she is a take charge kind of gal and knows what she wants.

She’s not about to throw away her life to jump on the back of a strange man’s bike, regardless of the whole “you are my mate” argument. That creates a whole new set of problems for Rebel, who is in unfamiliar emotional territory for a rough and tumble kind of guy.

This is definitely a fun new series featuring plenty of dominant shifters ready to get naughty.

Favorite Quote: “You live up to your road name, Abraham Lynch. A rebel to the very core, you refuse to allow anyone to claim dominion over you. Even the one woman made to be yours. Perhaps it’s time to stop rebelling, young one.”
