"Magnus Pack" series book 1
on 23 March 2009
Sara, Miki and Angelina are best friends living in a small Texan town. They remain oblivious to the fact they are the only none shape shifter residents, well that is Miki and Angelina are definitely fully human whilst Sara was raised in ignorance by her grandmother as to her true heritage. This soon changes when Zach and his Pack (wolf shape shifters) arrive in town to protect Sara from an old Pride (lion shape shifters) vendetta determined to finish the job that left Sara with a nasty scar on her face and a badly damaged leg when she was just a child.
Alpha male Zach doesn't want a mate, instead he is far more concerned about becoming Pack leader until a drunken Sara kisses him and calls him her "pretty man". He cannot deny his instant attraction to this woman; a fellow wolf shape shifter with the perfect characteristics to become an alpha female and lead by his side. Sara in turn is becoming increasingly concerned about some changes in her life; her leg pain is becoming progressively worse, whilst her strength and senses of sight and smell are increasing. Miki is convinced she has been marked by a werewolf; however Miki is mad as a hatter and constantly spewing ridiculous theories. Yet this is one wacky theory that may prove to be correct.
I absolutely love SL's "Dragon Kin" series, and I've got to say her "Magnus Pack" series is definitely its equal. The humour I expect from this author is abundant; particularly surrounding Sara, Miki and Angie as they squabble and bitch amongst themselves. These women can be seriously nasty and do not want and most definitely do not expect a man to romance them or save them from danger; at least not a standard man as each will meet and fall in love with an alpha shape shifter who has to work extremely hard to win their hearts. Although the heroes of this series are great, it is the trio of women who really make these books; sassy, mouthy, incredibly protective of each other, and seriously vicious when needed, they are the type of tough leading ladies I love to read about.
