RUNNING WITH A DANGEROUS CROWD

Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He’s big, he’s strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can’t handle. Of course, that’s because his predatory instincts are no metaphor–he’s a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There’s only on...more

Set in the Night Watch world, but not a part of the series, Never Cry Wolf delivers! And how.

We met Lucas Simone in Eternal Hunter , and as the alpha of the L.A. pack, he is more than just a handsome face. In fact, he’s in jail being accused of murder when we first see him. A sexy and beautiful woman comes in and springs him from lock-up claiming he’d been with her all night, and couldn’t have committed the murder. While that is a great bit of luck for Lucas, he’s never met the woman.

Sarah is on...more

Disclaimer: this is a signed ARC that I won on Operation Auction. I was not asked by the author to reveiw this book.
Confession: I am a Huge Cynthia Eden fan.

I loved this book. Cynthia Eden definitely knows how to write an alpha wolf shifer. From the first page you get a taste of "the big, bad LA wolf". Lucas Simone is one bad wolf. He doesn't run from any challenge, he protects his own and he doesn't wait for the attack--HE attacks first. He even has a slight defect that adds to his charm (a tor...more

Okay. That was freakin amazing!!!
Really. Really. Blow-me-away-I-hate-waiting-for-the-next-one amazing.

This series is right up there with Dark Hunters, Demonica, Midnight Breeds..... really great stuff.

My top tier books have humor. Shelley Laurenston's Pack and Pride series, Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampire series, KMM's Fever series and Kresley Cole's Immortals after Dark. But this sits in that tier under those favorites. So it is definitely top ten.

I loved all the twists and turns. I loved th...more

Never Cry Wolf is a wonderful book and I think it is my favorite (and I liked them all) of the Night Watch series so far.

This is Lucas' story, who we met in the first book (Eternal Hunter). He is the alpha of the LA wolf pack and a very dangerous man who has fought for his rightful alpha place in life. He also has a weakness for the underdog and when a small woman comes to him for protection he finds her hard to resist.

With a dead body on his doorstep Lucas finds himself on the wrong side of the...more
Paranormal Haven
Sarah King has a bounty on her head and no where to hide. She has come to LA in hopes that the werewolf alpha, known for being ruthless, lives up to his reputation of protecting the weak. Lucas Simone knows that Sarah is keeping secrets from him but he can't fight the attraction or the urge to claim her. When their enemy strikes, Sarah and Lucas will need to trust each other or suffer the deadly consciences.

Sarah has learned of a plot to kill Lucas and take over his pack by a rival alpha. She ho...more

Sarah King desperately needs help. She needs someone to protect her from hostile shifters and the lucky guy who ends up with the job - Lucas Simone, alpha of the LA pack (we met him in Immortal Danger).

Lucas doesn't really want to get involved but something about Sarah leaves him with little choice. He is known as one of the most dangerous shifters, not only is he a wolf, the most psychotic race, but he became alpha at 16 when he managed to beat the wolf who killed his father 6 years ago. He is...more
Carla-Book Monster Reviews
There is a reason Cynthia Eden is one of my favorite authors and it's because there has never been a book she's written that has not been short of amazing!!

The books starts off with Lucas in jail for a murder he did not commit. Sarah comes in claiming to be Lucas' lover and that she was with him on the night of the murder. Although Lucas knows he has never seen this woman before, he is all for getting out of jail.

Sarah is a woman with a lot of secrets. She is on the run from her ex who also happ...more

4.5 Stars!

Cynthia Eden never disappoints, weaving a gripping tale of betrayal, revenge, love and trust that will keep you turning the pages for more!

Sarah King is on the run with a large bounty on her head; her only hope is the L.A. alpha wolf, Lucas Simone. When Lucas is imprisoned for a murder he didn’t commit Sarah impersonates his lover, giving him an alibi for that night and setting him free. The only thing she asks for in return is his protection. Lucas knows that Sarah isn’t telling him e...more

This book was fantastic. I am a huge fan of Cynthia Eden and would highly recommend the Night Watch series to any PNR fans.

Werewolf alpha Lucas is bad boy to the core, except for a protective streak that make him a sucker for a damsel in distress - especially sexy as heck ones like Sara. Sara knows that Lucas is the only one she can trust to keep her from certain death, but even as Lucas' desire for Sara runs wild, his wolfy senses are telling him that there is more to Sara than she's telling him and that trusting Sara is the last thing Lucas should do if he wants to keep his pack safe.

Overall I liked Never Cry Wol...more

Sarah King is well aware that Lucas Simone, pack leader for the L.A. wolves. has a weakness for victims. So when she flees the abusive alpha Raphael Santiago, she heads straight to the L.A. alpha’s front door, or in this case the front of his jail cell. After springing the alpha from his cell, Sarah counts on his weakness to keep her safe from the monster coming for her. Lucas puts trust in pack only, but although he smells deception on the lovely Sarah, he also sees her scars and believes she i...more

This story had so many secrets revealed, and twists and turns, where to begin??

Sarah King is seeking the protection of the LA pack Alpha, Lucas Simone and his pack. Bringing with her, a bounty on her head, and a lot of secrets and half truths. Sarah is running from Rafael Santiago, an alpha from a different pack. Sarah has a bit of history with Rafael, one that ended on a bad note, you could say. And Rafe has the misconception that Sarah is his mate, but he is the one who placed the bounty on he...more

Never Cry Wolf is in the Night Watch world but it is a stand-alone, with completely different characters. I did not read Immortal Danger (book #0.5) but I know that they're related (they form a kind of series, I guess), so I'd advice you to read book #0.5 first and then this one. Or you can do like me and just read this one. Doesn't matter much. ;-)

SO, Never Cry Wolf was definitely my favorite, ALL the characters were amazing.
I loved Lucas but I really really loved Sarah as well. A thing I like

'Never Cry Wolf’ by Cynthia Eden

True THUMBS up and a Five out of Five Flames for Heat!

You have your bad boy Alpha, his bad boy sidekicks (who more than steal your heart all on their own) and your heroine who…well, inadvertently stirred the proverbial shit pile!

Shifters, Vampires and Witches…Oh My~

Turns out much isn’t what it seems with angsty, guilt riddled Sara, except for her building desire for Lucas.

But can she trust him with her heart and her life!

Lucas Simone knows what being the loner on...more

For some reason this book just didn't seem as good as others that are set in this world. I think the reason why, for me, was Sarah. You knew she was hiding things from the start, but you didn't realize just how much until you were over half way thru. She seemed sorry for it, but I had a hard time buying it. She says that she was in love with Lucas before she meet him, it was his legend that did it for her. So if that is your feelings and your life is on the line why would you go to this man for...more
Saly
Not my favorite by her. I didn't like Sarah much, she had way too many secrets, even though she came to help to Lucas. I normally enjoy pack stories but I didn't like it much. Way too much action stuffed in, it seemed like reading an older book by her with character names changed.
We saw Maya and Brody again(the vampire and dragon) and it did seem to setup two stories with other pack members.
The whole story was they don't trust each other(have their own motives), are all over each other, then co...more

I don't know. I liked it, okay? I really did, but well, this is the 4th one in the series and I haven't read any of the others and I got really confused with some of the people, and I got lost in some of the betrayal and understanding people's reactions.
Having said that, I liked the characters--most of them, Lucas was awesome, Jordan was great, Dane seems significantly haunted, Piers has some problems, love them all.
Our girl Sarah pissed me off for a good portion of the book. She was a liar. sh...more

To be perfectly honest, I was bored. I wanted to like this as I'm a big fan of shifter stories, but not one thing about this was intriguing. The heroine lied her way through what I did read AND made stupid decisions. The hero morphs from a somewhat lusty indifference to full-on alpha possession and it didn't feel genuine. At all. I gave up about halfway in. DNF

ETA: also needed a proofreading! Pact and Pack are not interchangeable.

Whew! Another fabulous read from an equally fabulous author!!

If you are looking for a great, hot & sexy story with “Others” in it – then look no further than to a Cynthia Eden story. Alpha Wolf Lucas Simone - who first appeared in Immortal Danger a time or two - now gets his own “tale”. He is your typical Alpha in that he is big, strong & dangerous which is of course what makes us all love him! He has only one weak spot – protecting those who need it (or at least seem to need it). Which...more

Very good book as usual from Cynthia Eden. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot of the book. She always knows when to bring the "shock" factor. LOL I enjoyed the interaction between the hero and his HEA.

Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy people mess with. He is big, strong, and has the instincts of a predator. That is because he is a werewolf. He rules one of the scariest packs on the West Coast. He has a heart though—he is known for his protection of those who are wea...more

I wish I'd realized earlier that this was part of a series; I think I could've used a bit more background in the world. That said, I liked the world-building, with 'shifters as essentially a different (but partially compatible with human) species. I liked the magic system. The sparks between Sarah and Lucas are undeniable and the sex is ultra-steamy, but the whole bit that threw them together in the first place was a bit confusing to me (c.f. "more background," above).

Although this particular book is listed as #4 in the series, it really doesn't connect to the other 3 stories at all. But that didn't matter to me - I enjoyed it! There were a lot of players in this one and I got a little confused at one point trying to figure out who was bad and who was good. It was a strong storyline and then there's a possessive alpha male whose instinct is to protect the week...what's not to like?? I would love to get some more books about the other pack members from this on...more
