Her Alpha Protector

Angel has spent years on the run from one possessive alpha, and she has no intention of ever submitting to another--not even Hunter, the man who stars in her most erotic fantasies. But when her former master tracks her down, she has no choice but to turn to the one wolf who can protect her.

Hunter thought ten years apart would diminish the craving he has for Angel. But when

**4.5 Stars**

This novella is an awesome debut from new author Gwen Knight! Her Alpha Protector has everything you would want for a quick read: no filler, all action, romance, intrigue and sexy love scenes.

I love wolf shapeshifters and when I read the blurb for Her Alpha Protector, I pre-ordered right away. Her Alpha Protector, although short, was a very fulfilling read and I must say that's something hard to do. I love reading novellas, but sometimes some just leave you without a sense of s

I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Attacked viciously and turned against her will, Angelica (Angel) was then forced to submit to a cruel, domineering, possessive alpha. Seeing no other option after two years of living in hell, she runs from her pack and so called mate. Eight years later she is still running. Hiding in the city was the easiest thing for her to do. Or so she thought until the alpha Hunter walks in to the restaurant where she works. Now it's time for

I read the last words of Her Alpha Protector with my heart beating hard in my chest. The passion, the danger and excitement of Knight's story, kept me both on the edge of my seat, and swooning from the electricity between Angel and her Alpha.

From the moment Angel sensed Hunter, smells him even, across the room of the dingy diner where she eked out her living, I was hooked. Knight never lets us rest for a minute, as she sweeps us away through adventure, both emotional and physical. She carries us

Fantastic Love Story!

It's been a long time since I read a love story void of sex from the beginning and it was such a pleasure to really enjoy it this much with so little passion in it.

It is a love and a passion that has lain dormant for many years.

Angel is a girl that was turned to a wolf against her will and has lived 10 years full of fear and when she meets up with the man who stole her heart 10 years ago on a chance meeting, she can't trust him.

Will Hunter be able to win the trust of his one

What an absolutely fantastic debut for Knight!

From start to finish, the reader is drawn irrevocably into the world of Angel and Hunter - when all is said and done, you are dying for more!

It's clear that Knight is passionate about her writing, and it really shines through in this piece. Her descriptions are exquisitely crafted, and all of the emotions that her characters go through are palpable. This was far more than simply a romance story... it was a work of art poured out as words on parchment

Gwen Knight's debut writing was a fantastic read! Her passion for writing is obvious. I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, werewolves, and Harlequin Romances in general! She captures the reader right away and doesn't waste time getting to the action or the sizzle. I really loved how she balanced between human and wolf forms. It was great! And her descriptive writing made it so easy for the reader to visualize without over doing it! Fantastic all around! I look forward to many more ...more

There's nothing better than a story that immediately sucks you in and then leaves you breathless in the end. The author wastes no time getting the action going and the adrenaline flowing. The two main characters have a chemistry that can not be denied, and each page unfolds more behind their connection. It's exciting, it's sexy, it's worth reading!

This was a great read. The plot was excellent - pulled me in right away, and I really liked the artistic use of the language. But beyond that, this sizzles. The passion between the characters is reason enough to keep this as a favorite, but the story itself is awesome, too. Really enjoyed it!

From the first sentence Gwen Knight sinks ethereal claws into the readers mind, snagging their imagination and hauling them down the turbulent roads of the story. Angel’s past haunting her in a such a way that the reader is able to crawl beneath her skin and delve into the psyche to live as one with the character; to feel the heat of Hunter’s protection as he entices her into trusting again.

Much like a really good action packed “man-movie” that starts off in a rush and ends in excitement, making

Action "Packed" Werewolves Novella

Even after ten long years, Angel still dreams of Hunter's black eyes. When she sees him again, she runs. He is the star of her fantasies. But he's also the alpha of the West Canadian Basin pack.

When Hunter locks eyes with Angel, he knows he's within his rights to kill her or punish her. With the realization she's a lone wolf to evade her former, psychotic alpha, Hunter wants to comfort her and protect her. As his wolf rises within his human form, he wants much m

4.5 Stars

This short story packed quite a punch! Most short stories fail to cover important details of the story. Leaving the reader unsatisfied. I am happy to tell you that this was not one of them.

I was very happy with how well this book touched on the past without to many gruesome details.

I enjoyed that Hunter was protective as well as respectful of what Angel wanted. The sex scenes were hit and steamy without being over the top mushy.

I would have liked to feel that the MC were a little mor

This book was fabulously romantic in its depiction of a woman who overcomes much to find love. The mating recognition and joining between Angel and Hunter was moving, especially Angel's description of "the moon arising in her" as she accepts her destiny.

The writing was lyrical and filled with originality. Angel is a character you will empathize with and root for during her journey.

Looking forward to other books from this author.

More please!

Sexy, protective Alpha wolves, daring heroines, thrilling action-- Gwen Knight's debut novella has all that, and more! The careful detail that goes into her work puts in the reader in Angel's shoes, and has you easily falling for Hunter's charms. As a huge fan of paranormal romance, it was all too easy to sink my teeth into this goody, and it leaves me salivating for more.

Gwen Knight is easily an author to watch out for, as her work will continue to sizzle e-readers and bookshelves equally!

Her Alpha Protector delivers exactly what's expected of a romance, but with a werewolf twist (I'm a sucker for werewolves). In this short well-written novella, there is plenty of steamy sexual interludes, a well-plotted beginning, middle, and end where no loose ends are left to tie up, and the book fulfills the typical fantasies of a damsel in distress being saved by a hot hero (who happens to be a werewolf, in this instance). If you love paranormal romance, you'll enjoy Her Alpha Protector.

This was a great novella. The author really packed a lot of story and character development into relatively few pages,which made the read a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the heroine - in particular, her opening scene. The hero was hot, the the villain was awful (in the right kind of way). Definitely read this book if you're looking for some fast paced fun and sexiness.

The strength of this novel is in the pacing of plot development and character development. There is a sexy connection between the main characters who are ensconced in some solidly built mythology. The connection between the lovers is strong and sweepingly romantic. Descriptors are vivid and create wonderful imagery to help ease the reader into an unfamiliar world.

Just loved this book! This novella is quick, action-packed book about werewolves. Even though this book was really short it had a lot of action with a HEA at the end. I will be reading other books by this author.

Gwen Knight has written a great book. It pulled me in from page one and didn't let go until the end. Great telling of a story. If I ever met a werewolf I would hope he looked like Hunter.
2.5 stars, really.

There are good bones here, but overall I thought it was a little too short and was a little too purple prosey at times for me to really dig it.

She was his, but more than that, he was hers.

her most secret desire. He was more than gorgeous, he was exquisite. He’d left his imprint and now she craved him. HOWLY SHITE/SHIFT WOLFMAN! What an intense read! Intensely nerve wracking, nail biting, sitting on the edge of your seat kind of intense. Intensely hot, sexy & FANGTASTIC! Intensely wolf. Intensely Alpha. Intensely FANGERRIFIC!

This novella is a mesmerizing werewolf romance that keeps readers on their toes. Having spent years on the run from one possessive alpha, Angel has no intention of ever submitting to another. Hunter spent the last ten years craving Angel, but to claim her he’ll have to fight for her – and give her a reason to quit running.

This fast paced plot keeps the adrenaline pumping with suspense, action, drama and romance. The author brings the story to life with vivid imagery and details that capture the

Review Her Alpha Protector , by Gwen Knight
A very enjoyable read. Starts off at a run and keeps going to a fast delightful conclusion. The Heroine, Angel is on the run, literally. Hunter, the hero is our, (I say our, because I have adopted him), is a hunky, honorable wolf shifter. Plenty of details are given for the two main characters and Ms. Knight’s shifter culture. In a novella length book I was taken by surprise how much information was provided. I could easily connect with the situation an

After two years, Angel has had enough and she escapes and is horrified to find that Seth has declared her a rogue wolf, making her fair game for any other wolf to attack. Eight years later, Angel crosses paths with Hunter, another Alpha. He had been haunted for years by his memories of

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is Gwen's debut as an author and I found myself thoroughly amazed by the sensuality. Yes, I have read other books that contained sensual scenes but, Gwen carries the sensual scenes and builds up to full blown passion which I don't always see in the books I have chosen to read. Most contain a meeting between hero and heroine and phase right into sexual scenes.

This book is well written, contains such depths of emo

A quick surprising read

A quick surprising read

I may be jaded but I normally don't have high expectations when reading a new author. I'm seldom willing to pay for the unknown author no matter the reviews. I picked up this book by an author unknown to me because the plot was at once different and yet the same. Surprisingly I enjoyed the book. In spite of the short length the story was complete and not a series. The rational for only three stars was that the characters could have stood more develop

Gwen Knight was a new to me author, not any more. New authors usually don't excite me. Not so with this author. Gwen's new book Her Alpha Protector gave me everything I appreciate in a good shifter story. The writing and grammar were spot on. The story had an evil villain and just enough angst to make you wonder if there was going to be a HEA. The hero, Hunter is all alpha. Good looks, powerful wolf, confidence, and enough patience to get his woman. Angel, the heroine, damaged, afraid but with ...more

All she craves is her freedom but when she sees Hunter, the Alpha of the territory she is in she tries to run again but this time it is her feeling for him she is running from.

Fast Paced, quick read about a Romance 10 years in the making. Angel won't trust Hunter easily but there is something about the man she had a chance meeting with 10 years ago that she hasn't been able to get out of her head. Can Hunter prove that he can be trusted when the demons of Angel's past come back to haunt her in living color?

I was at the edge of my seat, could not wait to see how it would go from start to finish. I love reads like this in between those long tortuous stories that leave

Such an awesome book. You just gotta read it. I loved this book from beginning to ending. Gwen has done such an awesome job with the characters and it was a great story too. I just cannot express how much I love this book. I have found another favorite author. Thanks so much Gwen for such a wonderful book and I look forward to reading more of your books.
