Allison Carver is a Witch fighting to survive a Vampire Elder's lust for revenge, a High Priest's evil plan, and an Alpha Wolf, whose touch she craves more than air. A cat has only so many lives…

Allison Carver is a Witch on a mission to save humanity from the two species of immortals who prey upon them. A Witch accused of abduction, mated to a Wolf, and the focus of a High Priest's revenge, Allison can only pray she has enough cat lives left to get her through.

Wolf Alpha, Reginald Leclair, didn't intend on letting his pack members force him to take a mate, but when a sexy Witch stepped into his path for the second time, his Wolf didn't care that the Witch turned into a Kitten with claws. A Kitten whose innate curiosity and knack for getting into trouble, just might be the straw that broke the Wolf's back.

In a world where immortals are bound by the Tri-Species Treaty, there is little hope for a happy ending between a Wolven and a Witch, unless the Sisters of Fate take a stand.

"Where are we going? Reginald?" He didn't as much as look back at her. Her legs hurt as he didn't even slow his steps to accommodate her shorter stride. When they were far from the sounds of the pack readying themselves for the hunt, he stopped to turn toward her. Allison bit her lip nervously as he continued to stare at her. His thoughts were weirdly guarded from her, but she could feel the waves of anger and frustration coming off his body.

"I won't apologize for what I did." She knew it was the wrong thing to say the instant his eyes dilated and he moved. The hard bark of the tree bit into her back and shoulders as he shoved her up against it with a violence that was barely controlled.

"Do you even know what you did, Allison?" The way his white teeth flashed and his voice growled at her should have scared her, but it was the use of her name that terrified her. A shiver ran up her spine as she looked up into the face of rage. "I could change right now. My Wolf wants out. He wants to dominate you so hard you won't ever question me again."

She flinched as his fist hit the tree beside her head. Bark flew off the tree at the impact, telling her exactly how much anger he was holding back. It should have made her want to run as far from his animal as she could get, but instead her body was humming and hot, leaning toward his hardness like it was drawn to him. And it was because the mating heat was returning in full force, stronger than before in the urge to be one with her mate. She needed him, but not like this. Not with his anger standing between them.

"Change, then." She stared up at him defiantly. "Let him have me, because this is who I am, Reginald. I'm strong headed and willful. I won't be a weak little bitch who follows your every word. I make my own choices for my life."

"You are my mate! I can't lose you."

"You don't own me!" she screamed back at him. She clenched her teeth, fighting the need.

My Review:

What a brilliant, fast paced novel. Ashley picks you up in the first chapter and pulls you all the way through the novel with romance and relationship troubles like no other.

Ashley is a very descriptive author. She lays everything out in brilliant detail and creates a very solid backdrop for her phenomenal storyline. Everything comes to life under her pen. The story becomes larger than life through Ashley’s vivid storytelling and remarkable descriptions.

Although supernatural, these characters were real and oh so human. It was a brilliant change. I also appreciate the way that the different supernatural races were developed. Their cultural quirks are brought to light, as well as their interactions with one another. Although the races were developed as a whole, each character was developed as an individual. Although there were many minor characters in this novel, those who played larger roles were developed right alongside the main characters. Everyone could hold their own as an individual. They were all also one of a kind and very vivid.

As a whole, this was a phenomenal novel that I couldn’t put down. I read it all in the span of a few hours. I was happy for the characters at the end, yet definitely wasn’t ready to let them go.
