#1 Indie Next Pick!

A Hall of Fame LibraryReads pick!

One of People’s Best Books to Read in February

A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically and The Love Hypothesis.

Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again...

Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….

Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she's ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.

Romeo and Juliet meets Beauty and the Beast

After being forced into a political marriage of convenience, our two main characters need to learn to trust each other even though her biology says she shouldn’t and his says something very different. It was a cool take on the vampire/werewolf genre with some new rules and political alliances. It was a pretty cozy romance even with the assassination attempts, the kidnapping, the mortal enemies, and the political subterfuge.

Worth every second and penny!

If you enjoy paranormal romance this book is for you. This book is worth every second and penny! I loved that it wasn't a super complex story with a million characters to attempt to remember. The story grabbed ahold of me right from the start and didn't let go. I actually couldn't stop listening and was upset when I had to do other things and needed to pause the book. I was also upset when I learned there is only one book to this one...so far. It is too good of book to not be a series. It has the perfect amount of sex for a romance book that makes you wait for it and love every second once you get there.

Very good book! I will impatiently wait for the sequel. I enjoyed listening to it. Very créative way to make links with the real way of dogs (I don't know for the wolves)

10/10 Romance, 3/10 storyline

This was my first paranormal romance that I’ve listened to and I loved the characters and the world building but the side plot and the mystery elements were kinda lacking and the confrontation scene sucked. I did love the romance aspect way too much to care and would LOVE a sequel

Loooved

Absolutely swoonworthy. I’m a big fan of slow burn and Ali did it perfectly with a unique take on vampires/werewolves. The narration was great! Can’t wait for the next one!

Worth the listen

Took time to really get into it but really good once you’re mid-way, by then you’re pretty invested. I liked that it was a mystery and that it was mixed with a dash of smut.

loved it

well written, slowish burn enemies to lovers. only ptoblem is that you can almost hear what he's thinking but the FMC is clueless. lots of plot and a few good spicey bits. if you like this book you can try others by the author but for the moment this is the only paranormal book she has written.
