Bitten by The Alpha

(Regents Park Pack 04)
by

Annabelle Jacobs

Gareth’s heart is set on Cam, but Cam’s heart broke a long time ago.

As alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, Cam’s focus is always centred on its members—his personal life pushed aside after the death of his wife. Now that his pack has merged with the Primrose Hill shifters, he can’t afford any distractions.

Gareth’s been in love with his alpha for years, but his position as beta complicates matters. Added to the fact Cam still mourns his late wife, Gareth knows his feelings will never be reciprocated, so he buries them deep.

With the two packs already struggling to unite under one alpha, they get a surprise addition—one who causes more tension within the ranks. Under such strain, long-kept secrets are forced into the open. Gareth and Cam must deal with the aftermath, while also keeping the pack’s best interests at heart.

Excerpt!

Cam stood at his window overlooking the street below. To the left lay the start of Regent’s Park, and he yearned to be down there. To shift and run, feel the damp grass under his paws. He could put it down to recent events; the past few weeks had been trying, but that wasn’t the only reason. The October sun warmed his face through the glass and Cam smiled, the feeling bittersweet.

He’d met his wife in early October, fifteen years ago, and Cam remembered it with a clarity that he both treasured and hated.

Autumn was her favourite time of year, all those colours captivating her as the leaves changed from a lush green to a mix of orange, yellow, and brown. Even though he missed her every single day, the sight of the trees turning always made him smile. Now it was Cam’s favourite time of year too.

His phone rang, startling him, and the number on the screen made his heart stop for a beat. The alpha council were the last people he wanted to hear from. “Cameron Harley,” he answered, brows drawn together. What could they possibly want?

A dozen scenarios filled his head—none of them good—but Cam pushed them aside. Speculating wouldn’t help.

“Good morning, Alpha Harley.” Alpha Karin Wallace’s smooth commanding voice had him standing a little straighter. “I imagine you’re curious as to why I’m calling?” Relaxing a little, Cam smiled, wryly. “That’s one word for it.”

Laughter sounded in his ear. “I’ll get straight to the point then. Alpha Tregarrak of the Penwith Pack has a request which I am duty bound to relay to you.”

The Penwith pack territory was down near Penzance, Cornwall, where the council had sent Felix Martyn. Cam bristled, not liking where this was headed. “Oh?”

“Since the Penwith pack took in a member of your pack, Alpha Tregarrak is requesting that you return the favour.”

“Felix wasn’t a member of my pack. He was a rogue shifter who we took prisoner.” Alpha Wallace sighed, and Cam got the feeling she’d expected him to say that but was still disappointed in him.

“I’m aware he wasn’t strictly a member of your pack, but you did take him in and asked for leniency on his behalf, so in this instance, I’m inclined to say Alpha Tregarrak has a point.”

Fuck.

Cam had known deep down that particular decision would come back to haunt him. Probably some troublemaker that Tregarrak wanted shot of, and that was all Cam needed at the moment. He had plenty of his own to deal with. The transition from two packs to one wasn’t all smooth sailing—not that he’d expected it to be easy—and he had enough to sort out without adding to it. “He wants me to take a member of his pack in return for Felix?”

“Yes.” She paused, and Cam waited, knowing she wasn’t done. “This would be a courtesy between alphas; I can’t order you to do it.”

Cam rolled his eyes. Not directly maybe, but he doubted a refusal would go down well.

Fine. If they were a troublemaker he’d stick them in Alec’s unit. They’d soon behave. “Of course. Please tell Alpha Tregarrak I’d be only too happy to return the favour.”

Alpha Wallace laughed again, like she knew exactly what he was thinking. “I thought you’d say that. A good decision, Alpha Harley.”

“Can I ask who he wants us to take?” Might as well get a name.

“His daughter, Rachel.”

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have only read a couple of books by this author, and let me say that she was quite a surprise. I had not taken the chance to read the blurb of this book, so when I first started reading it, I had thought it was a m/f paranormal romance. So you can imagine my happy dance, when I turned around and grabbed the blurb for the book. I will admit that I am not a fan of the main character having previously being mated to a female. For me it just comes off a bit weird to see him go from a female to a male mate. After I realized that Rachel was in love with Sara, I actually started to like her quite a bit. She was feisty that is for sure.

Cam is the alpha wolf who had at one time been mated to a human female. His wife had been killed sometime ago, but pain like that never fades away like one would expect. He had also hidden a part of himself that he had forgotten. So you can imagine himself when he realizes a possible bonding moment with his beta, Gareth. He needs a good kick in the pants.

Gareth has been in love with his alpha for many years, but hid that part from everyone. When Cam’s wife died, he knew that Cam would forever love her and not with anyone else. That is until one sweet full moon. Now all they had to do is to fix the rest of their problems.

This story was pretty cool, but very lengthy. It just seemed that a lot of details that could have been left out to make it a good read. It didn’t keep my attention like it should have. I normally get into a book and can’t put it down, but this one did the opposite. Now like I said, I did like Rachel, but it felt like more of the book was focused on her then on our budding romance. It took away from the story itself. Also his late wife’s name was mentioned way to much to even think that it was possible for our guys to get together.

When I read a romance, I want to focus on them and the possible dangers around them. Not on other people and their desires or thoughts. Also I can’t believe Cam went from hot to cold with his lust for Gareth. It came off to fast and not really build up to it. The chemistry between the two was sweet and hot, but was not off the charts like it should have either. I will admit that while it is a very good book it is not one of those types I would read more than once. Now if the book was more about our guys then that would have probably been a bit different.
