To avoid being left for dead in an icy wasteland, Astrid surrenders herself to the local werewolf pack and its alpha, who is as tantalizing as he is terrifying.

In a time when shifters are facing extinction, Erik is alpha to the largest wolf pack in the arctic. As harsh and unforgiving as the tundra, he is accustomed to wielding control over everything. Astrid is no exception.

This is the first part of an ongoing story. It is not a sweet romance. It contains sexual themes that may be upsetting to some readers.

Erik is the ultimate alphahole. He's raw, rough and brutal. He's calculating and menacing, and seemingly without a conscience. There's no compassion in him and none of the gentler feelings you often see in an alpha male with a hidden softer side he only shows to his love. He is everything you do not want in a boyfriend, partner, husband or mate, but dang, if he is not sexy as hell. I thoroughly enjoyed Erik because with this installment, I got a lot of insight into his character. Erik bring such a brute is surprisingly introspective and self-aware. He has made conscious decisions to be who he is and he makes no apologies for it. I like that in a man and I adore Erik.

Astrid was difficult to put my finger on because this part focused so heavily on Erik. The little I glimpsed of her showed me she's rather unselfish, somewhat naive, probably foolish with a mix of brave thrown in. From what I do know, I like her. She's handling herself well given she's been thrown into a rather difficult situation, though much of it of her own making.

I'm enjoying this new release from Ms Rivard and look forward to more of it as the story unfolds.

Note: This is the first part of a serial series. I do not know how many parts this serial will have. This is also available on Kindle Unlimited if you don't want to buy it.
