the Wolf is a well written novel with an exceptional subplot. I say subplot
because the main plot was definitely erotica. The subplot was the story line that
took place around the very hot sex scenes.
spent anytime in a bookstore lately in the romance sections you'll find a great
variety of genres. Many of the books use more than one genre. For instance it
isn't unlikely to find a Christian crime drama on the same shelf as a
paranormal vampire story. It also isn't unlikely to find a erotica paranormal
book such as Claimed by the Wolf on the same shelf as the others.
When at the
bookstore last week, I picked up Claimed by the Wolf and the woman next to me
said, "Watch out for that one. It isn't a romance. It is basic porn."
it was right there on the back of the book that Sybil must "share"
herself with the five warriors, but I guess that didn't make it clear that she
would be having sex with five different me. As a trolled around the net I found
many people with similar complaints. Yes this book is very erotic and those who
don't like these kinds of books will not enjoy this story line, but that is the
beauty of the publishing industry these days there is something for everyone.
who do enjoy erotic romance with a paranormal shift, this one is well written
and has the potential for a great story. Erotic fans will not be bored with the
varied use of erotic bedroom, or cave floor etc., scenes. Each lover that Sybil
takes has their own style that is for sure. Readers will find everything
other hand, the subplot for the story was more interesting to me. Sybil is a
witch who hasn't been trained in her art although she is very strong. She
stumbles upon a magic book at an estate sale and before she knows it, she is
thrown into a world where she finds all sorts of beings she has never heard of
before. Including a sex werewolf that she can't help but fall in love with
despite how he tries everything to keep her at arms length. There is also a
roguish dragon, a dominant elf, brooding vampire and demon in the mix.
complaint with this book is that although I realized the main part of the story
was the sex, when I was ready for the background story to come together it
moved to quickly. I wanted more action and more suspense. So I can't make this
a 5-Heart review, but I give the author good measure for hot sex scenes, great
alpha characters and witch, as well as an interesting story line.
humanity against supernatural threats from the five gateways into the world.
The Shadow Guardians: a vampire, a werewolf, a demon, a dragon and a fae are

first glance when reading the back cover one might think this book is all about
erotic romance and unfortunately some might think it has no substance. That
could not be further from the truth. Sure the author has the character have sex
with 11 different guys, but more than that this book has an outstanding plot
and an exciting read. I loved the heroine, Chandra. She had true grit and
intelligence to match. She never backed down to any challenge put in front of
her no matter how strange her life had become in just a few days.
for some having so many lovers in one book might be a bit too much. The sex
scenes however a truly hot for those who like these kinds of books and it falls
to form. Nothing to out there like in some erotic books.
say bravo to this author, and I can't wait to read another book by her.
