Dana fled her pack and their laws to live on her terms, but the price of defiance was her happiness.

Pack law states Lycan females must be shared by two or more males, but young and in love, Dana flees rather than be forced into a ménage. Her life on the run, constantly on guard, has no room for happiness. When her past catches up and brings her back to the home she fled, s...more

Omg! I am astonished! Defining Pack Law is a novel to howl about. When I started reading I couldn’t stop, I even got mad because I had to stop and fix dinner LOL. Eve Langlais adds a lot of emotions and depth to this wolf tale. I laughed, loved and even cried and that last one is hard for me;-) These three men are awesome. Why? For one Eve writes each male with their own personalities, so they are all are easy to fall for. I simply loved Dana she is sassy, witty, very loving and forgiving. The w...more
I was enjoying this book up to the point where Dana lost her freaking mind and started with the whole... He did something wrong, but it's okay because it was my fault. I wanted to throw my iPad across the room or at someone! She went from this strong woman to this person that just... well, I'm not sure what the hell happened. It just turned me off... So the answer is that Nathan runs away -- hello, you're pack alpha, IDIOT, you can't just run away! That was just... silly. And HOW did Dana outrun...more

This is a hard book for me to rate. I read it initially because of a one star review that made me curious, and now that I’m finished I’m vacillating over my feelings about this story. There were parts of this story that I loved almost as much as the parts that I disliked. Unfortunately, the bad parts outweighed the good for me. Nevertheless, I could see a reader going either way with this book.

What I did not like about this book:

1. The pack dynamic between men and women: It was frustrating to re...more

Who says running away will never make you free? Well, Kenny Loggins said that, but he didn't know what he was talking about, because things worked out just fine for Dana...

Dana fears the life that is her destiny. As Lycan female, she is rare and should be treasured but against Dana's desires, she must be shared among the males in her pack. She witnessed her mother's misery and is determined to avoid that life for herself. In an effort to dodge her destiny, Dana runs away from her pack and her fu...more
There were times that I really liked this book and parts where I laughed at it, laughed with it,and parts whereI just had to shake my head at it's ridiculousness. The characters had potential but I didn't connect with them. The vampire aspect felt thrown in just for "shock factor" and did nothing but bring the book down in my eyes. Kody and John were sweet and fun but we were supposed to be in love with Nathan.I can't imagine how anyone would be in love with Nathan, even the heroine. I kept wait...more

This is a story about a female werewolf who ran from her first love when it became clear he'd share her with others, as per pack law. Twelve years later, he catches up with her. Dana is feisty, strong, and knows what she wants and doesn't want -- at least she thought so before meeting two of Nathan's friends and her wolf longs for them, too. Dana resists the attraction because she grew up with a father who shared her mother with everyone. Most pack relationships are closed -- they may be menage,...more

Warning: Reading this book may find you panting for three werewolves of your own. Please talk to your doctor before attempting the foursome scene portrayed in this book as it may result in numerous orgasms.

Eve always has the most intriguing warnings...God I love her!!

Since pack law states that woman have to share more than one mate...Dana has decided to run from her pack and her one true love. She's constantly on the run and is always looking over her sholder for eagar werewolves determinded to...more

Recommends it for: 18 a and over; strong sexual content, menage situations
Defying Pack Law by Eve Langlais is wonderful escapade into the intriguing world of the paranormal werewolf shifter population. Dana, the heroine of this story, is a person the reader can connect with on an deep emotional level. She grew up in a very abusive household with a father who was overbearing and mistreated his own mate in atrocious ways.

Since Dana grew up up in a household with a cruel male role model for a father, she is very skittish about living out her life within the pack paramet...more
Fun Book! I loved it!

I have wanted to read this one for a while, and I'm not sure why I waited so long, but it was worth the read :) LOVED it!

The book starts off as we meet Dana, She's a strong girl, hard working and a Werewolf - She-Wolves are rare, but male-wolves are over flowing the populations. So when a Male comes across an unclaimed she-wolf, it's his duty to claim her, no matter what ... and Share her with his pack - ummm - Dana grew up with her parents as role models, Her father was a...more

This journey into Lycan territory...and the PACK was enthralling.

Dana has been running for 12 years...running from being "just" a warm Lycan FEMALE body that has to give in to the males. She loved Nathan, a Lycan, when she was dormant (her inner wolf hadn't made her appearance). He promised her he'd never SHARE her. But then she became a wolf...and the only way her father and his would allow the match was if he'd SHARE.

She ran...

Nathan finally finds her...and she's in DIRE straights. He puts his...more
Werewolves are my secret fetish, something about them that calls to me and therefore really wanted to like this book as it had not one but four werewolves, all hot and happening!! However, my bad that the story just did not click with me.

The book started off really well with Dana, the female MC of the story, running away from the Pack because she disliked being shared, which incidentally was Pack law. Loved her spirit in how she lives for 12 years alone and away from the Pack, becomes strong and...more
LOVED this book! Eve Langlais has quickly became a favorite author of mine.
2-2.5 stars

I have to admit that I'm surprised to be giving this book such a low rating but I couldn't help ending the book feeling a rather disappointed with the way it went…especially in the last 3rd of the book. I've read a lot by Eve Langlias and I usually really like her work so regardless of my disappointment in this book I’ll still be reading more of her work in the future.

Dana is a female werewolf and there aren't a lot of female werewolves so they don’t have a lot of rights in the werewo...more

Okay, where's the blond on the cover? I guess the guy in the middle could be dirty blonde but for the heroine to call him "blondie", I'd think he'd be more blond. Another cover that skirts the story. It's seem to be my quest in life to seek out bad or not applicable covers and root them out, or at least complain about them.

The story itself I really enjoyed. Dana was in love with Nathan and although pack law said each female had to have 3 mates she didn't because she couldn't change into a wolf....more

I recently re-read this story after buying the 2nd book in the series to refresh my memory what the story was about. It was just as addicting as the first time I read it, though I recalled fairly quickly what it was about.

Dana is an independent werewolf and one of the strongest heroines I've seen in a while. She reminds me a lot of Muriel from Langlais' Princess of Hell series, except without the dark sense of humor. Dana has a lot of issues to work through and overcome as she rejoins her old pa...more
A compelling look at a young female wolf shifter who has run from her pack in defiance of the pack law that would have forced her to mate with more than one male. After watching her father's disregard for her mother and seeing her mother's love slowly beaten to death by her dad's willingness to share her mother with any unmated male, Dana felt betrayed by the young male to whom she had given her heart, and even as she heard Nathan's assurances that he would protect her, she also heard the unstat...more

Oh my goodness! Someone help me off the floor… My side hurts from laughing so hard and I think I am in love with all the characters in this story and quite possibly the author as well. Dana is a feisty she-wolf who has been on the run for twelve years because of pack law. She is determined to stay mate free. I cannot help but love a woman that will not lie down and let a man, or men in this case, control her life.

I really enjoyed this one. Pretty hot read with lots of tension building up to the "get together". For John and Kody there was a little love at first sight when they met Dana. Nathan and Dana had 12 years of separation and lost love fueling their desire.

Nathan was awesome. He's alpha of the pack and definitely a caveman. No matter what he does, he just keeps messing up with Dana. If he wasn't so pig-headed I would have felt sorry for him.

John and Kody were the perfect foil for Nathan. Kody is yo...more
Thank you Goodreads for recommending this book! This is the first time I've used my GR recommendations and damn they did not steer me wrong!

I had read Eve Langlais before and enjoyed her work, but this was just fantastic. The right amount and the right combination of all those elements I love in a menage... hot sex (#1 LOL), caring, strong emotions , strong characters that you actually like and want to make it work, along with elements of fun and light-heartedness. Oh ... and love and a great HE...more
This book was scalding hot!!! Growing up in a pack, Dana must come to terms with the law that females must mate with more than one pack member due to the decrease in female population. That doesn't sit well with Dana who refuses to pimp herself out to several males, so she runs away. And continues to run from her past until one day it finally catches up to her. However, when the opportunity arrises again she finds herself questioning why she was so opposed to sharing herself with more than one l...more

Like all EL's books i have read so far I found Defying Pack Law to be a fun, short read and I wish it was longer but only because I enjoyed the characters so much. I liked how Dana didn't immediately change her view of sharing when she met her three heroes - her character was strong but not unbending when she made the decision to make things right with Nathan. I especially liked how Nathan struggled with his jealousy at sharing Dana - it's not something that is usually mentioned in menage romanc...more
Dana ran away from her pack because she didn't want to end up in a poly-amorous relationship. In her pack that is the way things work because their are more males than female, but that is not the way she wanted to live her life. So, she ran away from the pack and the man she loved.

She lives her life on the run for quite awhile, before she gets into trouble and is rescued by that male she left behind and his pack brothers.

Nathan, the boy she left behind, has been searching for her for years and...more

*Note: this book was a little Christmas present from my good friend Twigs. Thanks hunny!! :)

Defying Pack Law was good. There's not a whole lot to the storyline itself, the "action" comes and goes pretty quickly, hell the build-up wasn't much either. After saying that, I was hooked! First few pages, I can't really explain why, but I couldn't put it down and man-o-man was it H-O-T!

It's a pretty quick read, and the boys? RAWR

I really enjoyed this story by Eve Langlais. It was packed with emotion and h-h-h-hot. I think Dana could've held out a little longer, but there was no feeling of being rushed to get to the end of the book. The pacing was great and I couldn't put it down.

Can't wait to read more by Langlais!

OMG. Hallelujah! She reacts! [in reference to finding out Nathan's a complete manwhore]. She actually reacts, and doesn't immediately forgive him or just ignore it. What ever his reasons [and in this case, pathetic excuses], it would still hurt. A lot. And she actually reacts to it. Just bringing this up, because even though [Fallen Crest High], Mason's doing it for her, it should hurt like hell, and it just kinda felt like she accepted it and moved on.

Loved Kody and John. Faithful, hot as hell,...more
One of my guilty pleasures is reading books like this. This was a great read with a number of laugh out loud moments, sweet moments, hot moments, and moments that made you want smack an Alpha male or two.
Good at some places, not so good in a few
This is well written story. Often in me`nages its more about erotica aspects rather than the characters. This book showed how each hero is different in their approach . Nathan is the alpha, he is passionate and volatile. John is calm, steady .Kody is fun and mischievous. 3 different people making a whole for the h Dana.
Dana is sassy . But at times she behaved a tad bit immature too. But her being a little annoying , did not bother me or spoil the story fo...more

Eve Langlais has a comedic and sexy way of writing. Her books are quick reads, but are very addictive and pretty well developed. She writes love stories that have less courting and more fate involved, but always a conflict that brings her lovers closer together.

This book I liked the most of the series. The female character fought her fate and it showed that not everyone is perfect. I also thought it was hilarious. The conflict in this book was also well thought out and quite complicated, but hel...more
After recently reading a story that made me want to cry every last tear that my eyes could cry I thought it was high time to read some Paranormal that I hope won’t make me cry. Fingers crossed. Let me tell you though…. Have you looked at the cover of this book?! Oh holy mother of GAWD!!! Hot Damn! Note: All the focus is on her. There is no male on male action. Well dang no action between the men lol. But this book should get you a bit hot and bothered along with the other books in the series but...more

I should warn you, I have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. While well known for my shifter stories, I am also extremely partial to aliens, th...more
