They are the ultimate weapon. The ultimate secret. They are the Crown’s wolves.
Lycan Ky Lanzo is bound by the Crown’s command. His latest mission directive was deceptively simple. Get yourself caught. Now, Ky’s been bound, drugged, and collared by an unknown enemy in a facility that knows enough about him to neutralize his lycan strength and his telekinetic magic. But he’s not alone in his cell. Because there’s someone else with him. Someone exquisite. Someone altogether forbidden…
For Vivi Kinley, another month gone by means another full moon trapped in a cell with a moon-crazed lycan. There once was a time I’d never kill a living creature. Only, Ky is different. He’s powerful, latently sexy…and wanting him is dangerous trouble. Because sexual attraction is exactly what their captors want—and it’ll be an icy day in hell before she’ll allow it.
Now, Vivi and Ky have one chance at escape and to discover what twisted organization did this to them—and make them pay. The good news is that Ky might have found his near-impossible lycan mate. The bad news is that she might be programmed to kill them all…
So I thought this book was the first book in a series but it turns out it’s actually the second book in The Crown’s Wolves series. Oops. It turned out okay though since it read perfectly fine as a stand-alone even though there were a few loose ends that I am sure will be picked up again later in the series. I found this to be a delightful read and was hooked by the story right away. Ky and Vivi were great characters and I was eager to see how things would work out for them.
Ky and Vivi were both held captive and kept under the influence of others. They formed a lasting connection while in a very bad situation and drew strength from each other. They really were perfect for each other and seemed to be exactly what the other needed. Ky and his brothers make quite the team and I thought it was great to see them work together. The story had quite a bit of action in addition to the romance and I loved the fact that the story took a few turns that I didn’t see coming.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance. The romance in the book was really solid and I really liked the characters from the start. I thought that the magic system was very well done and somewhat unique. Now that I have read this book, I want to go back and tackle the first book in the series. I will definitely be looking out for more of this author’s work in the future.
I received a digital review copy of this book from Entangled Publishing, LLC.
Great it’s possible to read it without the others. I don’t read a lot of PNR anymore but well maybe
It’s good to know that this one still managed to work as a stand alone even if it was the second in the series. I like the sound of Ky and Vivi!
Glad to know it can be read as a stand alone.
Cool Carole thanks for the recommend I am looking for a new PR to dig into, maybe I’ll start with book 1 great review thanks
Great review you have for this one. I am happy that this one worked out so well for you. I really love the world building for the series and need to return to it. Glad this one was such a keeper for you.
Another fun new series to check out! 😀 Good to know this one works as a standalone, though I’ll probably try to read the previous book first.
Thank you. ❤️
I have done that. If there is time, I grab book one, but I am so glad it worked out ok. I have not tried this author, but the genre is one I enjoy.
