Hunting Human (Prime Legacy #1)
But the past lurks closer than Beth realizes....more
We are introduced to Beth (Elizabeth; Lizzy) and Rachel through Beth's flashbacks of their trip through Europe. Liz being the responsible one of the two. As usual, she watched over Rachel while she partied a bit too hard at a local bar. While there, they attracted the wrong kind of att...more
A great, well-rounded werewolf book full of non-stop action with a few surprising plot twists that'll keep you guessing. The characters are engaging and they each have their own unique traits that'll leave you feeling like you want to be their best friend. The side-characters are equally just as lovable and the bad guy in this novel is particularly dark and warped. For me, the only thing missing was more werewolf action but I'm hard to satisfy on that front so I won't hold...more

While on vacation with a close friend, they are abducted and forced to flee for their lives. While she makes it out, her friend isn't so lucky. She is forever changed and has a hard time dealing with the events so much that she never fully allows herself to get comfortable in one place. Until she meets...more

Beth finds herself forced to relive the death of her best friend, and becoming a were...more
I liked Beth, you knew she was running from something bad, she was so skittish you wanted to know what it was. I liked how Braden didn't come on strong with Beth, she wouldn't have responded well to that. Their romance at the start had me smiling with how sweet it was.
I also really liked Braden's family. They were fun and I loved how they didn't have very many boundaries a...more

Fantastic story! I fell fast and didn't put it down until it was over! I love the fresh new take on the whole werewolf idea! If this first book is any indication of how great future books will be I can't wait!
Incredible characters! Each of the characters has been well thought-out and lovingly designed. It was easy to become completely engrossed in the lives on the page. I was fully invested by the time I had turned the page a couple times. If you are into shifters - this book is for...more
*gasp* It was like a stake through my black heart. My unholy love for all things 80's reared its head and I was *this close* to sending her a strongly worded missive (comprised of poorly cut out letters from magazine articles) expressing my shock and horror along with a mix tape of the best songs of the 80's (including, but not limited to Corey Hart, Duran Duran,...more
Now, what I loved about the story, ev...more
That’s not to say the book was perfect, it wasn’t. But it was pretty darn close.
We start with a strong, independent heroine who’s clearly a nurturer and protector – in the beginning, she’s taking care of her less strong best friend in a si...more

A few years ago, Beth and her best friend Rachel were kidnapped by werewolves during their backpacking trip across Europe. Rachel didn’t survive the ordeal. Beth did, but she emerged as something very different. And it’s more than the fact she was turned into the very thing that attacked her; the trauma...more
I was really excited to get this novel. It's one o...more
This was a very decent wolf book (and we all know how picky I am with my wolves)
The descriptions of the transformations/shifting were very interesting and the details were fab. I loved how the author explained things when the humans changed into wolves.
I did think that they're minds should have gone all canine instead of retaining their human ones... but that's just me. It was still very nice.
The only problem I had with this book was the romance part. It seemed a bit rushed.
Then like always the past catches up with her, Markko Bolvek finds her. He wants revenge for his brother Beth killed when she escaped them. Then to make all matters worse s...more
Beth Williams is haunted by her past. Braden is a man with a deep dark secret. Can they look beyond their suspicious natures to find love with one another?
The author really created characters that you either like or hate. The characters don’t seem flat at all. You also feel as if you are there with them, watching them go through their struggles.
One word of warning though, the violence and sex are pretty graphic. So if...more
While there was a strong focus on Braden and Beth's b...more
Wow, was I wrong! I loved it! I blazed through this book in a day and a half and was almost sad when it was over.
Beth is strong, level headed and independent. She is also emotionally (and physically)...more
There were parts I devoured. There were parts I savored. In the end I almost always found myself asking for seconds!!
As most of you know I have a thing for my wolfy's, I never imagined I would, but I do. You also may note that I have a thing for most things paranormal, but that's a story for another day;) Point in case: This book only aids to my love affair with these beautiful weres.
Beth, a.k.a. Liz, has a terrible past. One that...more
