Rise to Alpha
With Alpha blood coursing through his veins, charismatic wolf Jake Louvière, can no longer deny his true nature. As his beast demands his rightful place within Acadian Wolves, he’s forced to choose between killing his Alpha or leaving New Orleans forever. When a mysterious woman trespasses into the bayou, Jake is instinctively wary of the creature that is not wolf. Inexplicably drawn to her, he attempts to resist her magic as it weaves a seductive spell. As quickly as she appears, the dangerous beauty is kidnapped by a powerful New York vampire, and Jake swears retribution against an old adversary.
For centuries, Kai Beckett concealed her true identity from those who would steal her ancient powers. Risking everything to save her sister, she searches for the Alpha who’d left San Diego to return to his Cajun roots. Jake, a mate worthy of her spirit, seeks to tame her wild nature but she is not one to easily submit. As Kai surrenders to her attraction to the Alpha, she embraces her darkest fantasies.
From New Orleans to Southern California, Jake and Kai are surrounded by intrigue and danger. Learning to trust each other, they fight lethal enemies and the irresistible connection binding them together. As they spiral into an erotic adventure, will Jake acknowledge Kai as his mate? With a nefarious enemy seeking to capture her, will Jake rise to Alpha, saving both Kai and his pack?
Jake is the 8th book in Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans series, and a series that I one click because I absolutely love it. This book was awesome! I was hooked from the first chapter and did not put it down. Ok, so I did have to put it down in order to adult but I did not want to. There was action and heat to this one. The action kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting for what would happen next. This series is one of those that really needs to be read in order, if not you could get lost because of the references to events in prior books.
Jake is an Alpha but does not want to believe it and he wants to remain in New Orleans. HA! He should know better than that. Kai is a loner and stays away from supernaturals because of what makes her unique. That doesn’t work well for her either. These two fight what they feel for each other, Jake thinking his mate must be a wolf and Kai thinking she will never have a mate. It takes a third, a vamp, to help them see what they are to each other. Oh yeah! Jake and Kai make an explosive and deadly team once they get together.
