Alpha wolf Emma Parker is loyal to a fault, even if it means losing the love of her life when he’s ousted from the pack. She’s never stopped needing him, and when a black witch curses the pack, she wonders if she’ll even survive. It’s a poison of the blood, and with each bite, the virus spreads, leaving the infected rabid and under the control of an evil Alpha.
Kyle Benton is starting over. He’s a lone wolf, betrayed by the only woman he’s ever loved. Until Emma barges back into his life, as gorgeous and determined as ever. He’s hell bent on resisting her, or at least making her suffer. But she needs him in a way that touches him to his very soul. Now he has to determine how to set her free, and if he can, how he can ever let her go.
Bitten By Deceit is a novella written by Shawntelle Madison. The story begins with Emma tracking down her ex-mate, Kyle. Emma needs his help to survive the attack by her pack leader, Liam. Emma was bitten during the attack and knows she will go insane as the poison from Liam's bite takes effect. Kyle agrees to help her defeat Liam and hopes to seek his own revenge against his former pack leader for sabotaging their previous fight for pack leadership. The story is packed with action and lots of steamy moments between Kyle and Emma. Wow...the sparks and attraction between Emma and Kyle flame! Bitten By Deciet captured my attention with the first page. I finished the book in one sitting - it's that fanatastic! This novella hooked me. I want more Kyle and Emma...please give me more Shawntelle, please!
The author provided me with a copy of the book for an honest review.
AUTHOR INFO Shawntelle loves to write stories where something mysterious always happens. Her stories unfold in either a magical place or she drop kicks her heroine and hero into the mix of crazy magical circumstances. Her characters have been swimming around in her head for the longest of time, but its only recently that she has given into their demands and wrote down their adventures.
Why paranormal? Well, every time she thinks about writing something straight forward she gets caught in the what-if exercise. What if her hero was a werewolf or if her heroine was a nymph? How far could she go down the rabbit hole and not sound crazy? (Yet still be somewhat believable?)
Writing is one of her first loves, besides web development. She is a die hard geek who earned her undergraduate degree in Math from Iowa State University. (She even almost finished a degree in Russian Studies.)
Her debut novel, Coveted, was chosen as a B&N Romance Bookseller pick for the month of May.
She currently lives in Missouri with her husband and children (the Den of Evil).
