What it’s about:
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?

Kym Grosso has done it again! Jake is the eighth installment of her Immortals of New Orleans series. Each book has gotten steamier with each addition to the paranormal series. Beyond the usual vampires, witches and shifters, Ms. Grosso has begun to include some fantastically unique paranormal attributes in her heroines to give her hunky vampires and shifters a run for their money!
Jake Louviere, an easy-on-the-eyes shifter, is a lone wolf so-to-speak. Jake shows the ultimate self-control as he tries to deny his Alpha urges. He left his pack in San Diego, and now he is an Alpha of no one but himself. Living on his own outside the confines of the New Orleans pack, he is surprised by his attraction to a woman who materializes in his bayou. When Kai Beckett vanishes after mentioning the name of a longtime nemesis, Jake warily needs to know more.
Kai is stunningly beautiful. The petite and fiercely independent woman is an ancient and rare paranormal being. She has come out of hiding to find her missing sister, and as much as she needs to hide her powers, she needs to risk finding a few trustworthy allies.
While Jake, Kai, and an ancient vampire named Quintus traverse North America in search of Kai’s sister, they learn to trust one another and establish a loyal relationship. Their wary affiliation eventually becomes a binding connection that leads to some incredibly erotic relations.
This fast-paced and action-packed book is easy to devour. Ms. Grosso’s stories can be read as standalone books, however, each book contains references to characters and events from prior books (just as each epilogue has an intriguing lead in to the next installment).
While the paranormal story could be perfect for readers of all ages, the inclusion of erotic scenes makes Ms. Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans an adults-only series.
