Beauty and the Beasts

Historical Were/Shape-shifter Fantasy Menage

While taught to be fearful of wolves, Abigail is forced to not only accept them but mate with them.  Bitten by a wolf, she must mate once a month with a wolf or she will go mad.  Fraught with tension, this agreement is made between two divided kingdoms and is facilitated by a witch named Jacintha.  Does she have an ulterior motive?

Destined to be Alpha, twins Caine and Stavros take turns servicing the princess on her monthly appointment.  She is to be their mate, one they shall share.  In order to take over as Alpha of their pack, they must complete the ceremony to make Abigail theirs.  Not knowing she is meeting with two men instead of one, Abigail is shocked when she is abducted and wakens to find two men looking down on her.  As the strategy and story is revealed about her abduction, Abigail faces tough decisions that will affect not only herself, but two kingdoms as well.

While Abigail sometimes appeared as a spoiled princess, at other times she showed maturity and grace.  The mature episodes usually followed a conversation with someone else though.  She was compelled to do the right thing, but needed a nudge more often than not.  Caine and Stavros had the whole alpha thing going, but were not too bad.  They seemed to genuinely care for their mate and only wanted her to be happy.  The sex was scorching, of course, and while a little predictable the story was entertaining and promises more stories in the future.

Length: Novel

For centuries the Kingdom of Drayzlake has been divided between the humans and the wolves. The two sides live by their own rules and follow their own leaders. But when a wolf crosses the Divide and bites the humans' princess, all hell breaks loose.

With wolven blood now running in her veins, Princess Abigail is forced to mate with a wolf on every full moon. What she doesn't realize is that she is mating with two wolves rather than one. Caine and Stavros are identical twins and soon-to-be Alphas of their pack. And they're tired of taking turns.

So on one moonlit night after another vigorous mating session, Abigail finds herself kidnapped to the wolves' quarters. Trapped in their fort, she can't deny the two beasts who desire her so, and locked between their powerful bodies, she can hardly remember her own name. But it soon becomes clear that these sexual games are as dangerous as they are delicious. Because Caine and Stavros don't just want her for the full moon...

They want her forever.
