Broods of Fenrir:
Shapeshifter Brand Geirson was raised to rule the Broods of Fenrir, but he refused his birthright. Instead, he killed their brutal leader–his own father–and walked away.
For hundreds of years he’s avoided brood society, until a werewolf kills an innocent human woman and Brand finds himself dragged back into the violent politics of the shapeshifters. When the two brood women who mean the most to him come under threat, he must take up the throne and risk becoming the kind of vicious bastard his father was, or let the broods descend further into chaos–taking the friend he swore to protect and his lover with them.
Coral Moore immediately grabbed my attention from the very first page, and the action continued throughout this book until the very end. There were times that made me sniffle and times when I wanted to shout at the book. Coral's werewolves are a violent bunch, but they can also show sides of compassion and tenderness. There is a lot of sexual tension that fills the pages, and the romance between the characters was strong and immediate. Coral's male characters constantly struggle with their wolves, the violence within them could only be tempered by their mates. There is also a great deal of abuse that occurs against the female wolves that the males believe is within their right, until Brand begins to change things. He believes that the women deserve equal rights and will use his power of authority to reach that goal. Dagny, Brand's mate, finds it hard to trust after her terrible past, but she quickly learns that Brand is very different from other male wolves.
