After one loser boyfriend too many, Melissa Bell swore she was done with bad boys, but when her ex puts her life in danger it is a buff, tattooed, dirty-talking alpha shifter who shows up to save her. More disturbing still, her rescuer makes it clear that he regards Melissa's safety as his personal responsibly, and defying his instructions soon earns her an embarrassing spanking. Though she should be furious, her body's reaction to the tough, handsome wolf's stern dominance demands more.

It doesn't take long for Cody to wish he'd never made an alpha's promise to protect Melissa, yet for some reason he can barely control himself around her. His inner wolf craves the beautiful human in spite of her snobbish attitude and constant sass, and when she is writhing over his knee, it is all he can do not to mark her and mate her right then and there.

Each moment he spends with the alluring, feisty girl only increases his hunger for her, but Cody promised himself long ago that he would never take a human as his mate. Will his pride push Melissa away forever, just when he realizes he can't live without her?

Publisher's Note: The Alpha's Promise is a stand-alone sequel to The Alpha's Hunger. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

THE ALPHA'S PROMISE follows Renee Rose's The Alpha's Hunger but the stories can be read as standalone without affecting understanding. In THE ALPHA'S PROMISE, we meet Melissa and Cody. As we'll learn quickly, Melissa (a human) finds herself in a bit of trouble thanks to her worthless ex and must go into hiding. Cody (the alpha of the Colorado Springs wolfpack) agrees to an alpha-to-alpha promise to protect her and instantly things are turned upside down because Melissa is Cody's mate.

And this was a grand read. Filled with engaging characters, worrisome suspense, and a great deal of sexual frustration, I found myself quickly tapping the pages and enjoying every moment of the story. I will readily admit to some gleeful enjoyment of Cody's hair pulling as he finds himself completely out of his element in terms of what to do with his human, particularly since she refused to obey him. And as you're about to surmise, indeed, there are consequences for failure to obey. And there are scenes that are just laugh out loud funny in terms of some not so subtle passive aggressive responses on Melissa's part (casually points to the floor scrubbing scene without giving away spoilers.).

If you love your men dominant alphas and get considerable pleasure out of watching them have their lives turned upside down by the women in their lives on the way to their happily ever after, then you'll love this story. And as with Renee Rose's stories, there is a bit of kink as well as some adult spanking, so if that bothers you then you won't want to read this story. But for everyone else, grab your favorite beverage, something to nosh, and get comfortable. You won't be disappointed.
