They may not be made for each other, but animal instincts are impossible to ignore.

Madisyn Drake is a rare breed of cat shifter…a loner, unpredictably wild, and emotionally distant. A recent betrayal has left her ready to sharpen her claws on the next man she sees…until a prowling wolf with steel-gray eyes and a brooding dark edge challenges her distrust. No matter how ful

I'm a little torn on how exactly to review this...I don't want to be so heavy on the gush that I give people unreasonably high expectations, leading them to subsequently not love this as much as I did...

But alas, at the end of the day, I can only be true to my own feels.

And, as per my favorite scene in the new Jumanji movie (if you haven't seen it yet, go...go now), says...

Let me start this review by stating that I am a die hard Suzanne Wright fangirl. She is one of my favorite paranormal romance authors. She always gives me what I want in a book. Now that being said I wasn't super excited about Bracken's book. I didn't dislike Bracken or anything he just didn't stand out to me in previous books. So going into this read, being a Suzanne Wright book I figured I would like it, but didn't plan on loving it. OMG I Freaking loved it. Bracken blew m

Do any of you save chocolate or a good bottle of wine(whiskey) for a time when you'll really need it? I do. I also tend to do it with books. I do it so much with books that if they were actual physical copies and not ebooks I'd be on an episode of Hoarders. If ebooks were not invented I think my probable cause of death would have been "Accidentally buried alive under avalanche of books in her home".

I hoarded this book too. I pre-ordered it and then I requested at

If anyone ever asks me for a PNR recommendation Suzanne Wright is always my answer because I am obsessed with her shifter series. Every book just sucks me in to this world as if I'm living with the Packs, and it is an amazing experience. Echoes of Fire was no different and I instantly felt connected to the characters from page one. It's crazy how realistic Ms. Wright can make her books feel and yet it's the most unrealistic genre's out there.

“I won’t be pushed away,”

Echoes of Fire is the fourth book in The Mercury Pack Series. As each shifter meets his mate, I get more enthralled with this wonderful world! Madisyn Drake and Bracken Slater are like oil and water OR fire and gasoline. They have known each other for a while and yet neither had any idea that they were mates. When Madisyn finds herself in a heated situation it is broody and overbearing Brack that lands himself in the middle of her mess. It is in the middle of the mess

I am so in love with this "Mercury Pack" and the "Phoenix Pack" series, that I am actually scared they will come to end one day ... I think I literally screamed when this one landed on my kindle :P

As much as I want to read Dominic's story, I was also very curious about Bracken...especially since we found out in the last book what happened to his family. My heart broke for the big dude...

Thankfully there is this awesome feline around, who is making him feel like himself again...

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

It's no secret that I'm this author's fan. I adore her PNR books, from great plots to great characters. It's a full package. So when I had the chance to get my hands on this book, I was stoked. I knew I was in for a treat. And once I started reading the story, I simply couldn't put it down. I even believe I finished it in one sitting. And if that doesn't convince you to read this book, the characters sure will. I adored both main characters and of co
Suzanne Wright has a unique way of writing real, flawed characters in a genre where nothing is real and once again she excelled at it with Echoes of Fire.

Madisyn is a take-no-prisoners Pallas Cat shifter. I’m not familiar with cat breeds so had to google it and SW puts a whole new spin on cute, yet evil when challenged with Madisyn. I’m totally fan-girling on Madisyn, I so want to be her when I grow up. She’s strong, feisty, quirky ,and has no filter. None whatsoever! I laughed so hard at the st

I simply cannot even try to be objective or unbiased here as I just love this authors writing so much. She rocks!!! 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
This is the 4th book in the Mercury Pack series by the extremely talented Suzanne Wright and as always I am in total book-heaven while reading these amazing, romantic and sexy "wolf-shifter" stories.
Thank you, Montlake Romance for this ARC.

Bracken Slater, wolf shifter and enforcer within the Mercury pack. Bracken hasn't been the same since the anti-shifter extremists gunned down his family at the drive-in. He has made a name for himself when he went after every extremist involved and took out his revenge.

Madisyn Drake, pallas cat shifter with no pack, works at the lone shifter shelter. Madisyn helps hide lone shifters into a new home when needed. When the alpha from a bear clan sent people to find out where she hid a bear shifter
Well well well, Madisyn certainly is my favorite heroine from Mercury and Phoenix Pack series!
That’s right ❤❤❤

And who will thought the always happy go lucky Bracken will end up like this.
Bu do me a favor, please read Wild Hunger, The Phoenix Pack series first after you’ve read Zander’s book before reading this book.

Perhaps, only few sentences, but you will found the tragedy which hit Bracken and his family there.
Poor guy and I love it to see he got the best heroine in the series!

I did not want anything new, and well she delivers plenty.
The two stars are for the lack of world building, the really formulaic romance, for the flatness overall. I might want to read the usual, but I can't say it's that good.

It's Suzanne Wright...

There's nothing more or less that I can share with you here regarding Suz's characters, we all know what I m talking about-the dominant, protective sexual alphas and bold, feisty, independant badass heroines...well, they speak for themselves...

I love reading about them, and Suzanne Wright never misses a beat...action, sexual tension and carnal pulsating need only heighten the masterfully written plot...

Madisyn and Bracken have known each other for quite some time. They find each other to be quite annoying. Until the touch-hunger becomes too much for Madisyn and Bracken is there to witness her pain. When one thing leads to another, ending with an unconscious Bracken, suddenly they realize they are fated mates. Simple, right? Except Madisyn is questioning Brackens desire to mate with her just as I was. How could a couple who are fated to be together not recognize it for years and then suddenly, ...more

So this is another instalment for the Mercury Pack, the pack under Nick and Shaya. To be honest, I didn't like Nick & Shaya's book and they annoy me as a couple (more than likely because I didn't like their book) but everyone else's book within this pack has been an enjoyable read. Including this one!
I liked both these characters. Bracken has lost his whole family and has pretty much cut himself off emotionally from everyone in his pack. Madisyn is a bit of a loner and with trust issues but

I love Suzanne Wright’s PNR series and was so excited to go back into her shifter world as we’re back once again with the Mercury Pack. And as expected, this is a fun, fast-paced read with laugh-out-loud banter and ribbing, great action and intrigue, and a super-sexy, functional and emotional love story. Bracken and Madisyn’s story is lots of fun and I loved it!

Oh my this is an easy five for me because I'm just loving the Mercury Pack stories. With this book not only do we get a hot shifter romance but I loved that Madisyn was part of the sanctuary caring for young lone shifters that we read about several books back . Plus she's a rare feline that until reading this I'd never even heard of . NowI'm even more in awe because the obvious research and attention to detail really helped to bring everything to life as we learn just how tenacious Madisyn reall ...more

The fourth book in the Mercury Pack series is a thrilling read that draws readers in and refuses to let go. Madisyn and Bracken are strong, bold characters that really stand out and grab attention and the chemistry that burns between is electrical. The relationship between is rocky from start to finish and quite entertaining as they struggle through it. Readers can’t help but get caught up in all the upheaval that occurs emotionally between Madisyn and Bracken as readers can easily understand th ...more
I got to say, for the title, “Echoes of Fire,” there was little of fire reference to this story. There were small snippets of our leading character setting fires as a younger shifter, but other than that nothing became of it. It was background history that maybe came up only two or three times. The whole thing was maybe a combine paragraph. It’s interesting that she would title this book as so. Another oddity about this book is that if you look at the cover - audible gives a closer and clear ima ...more

Holy effing shit!!!! I couldn’t love it more!! It was just enough of the typical Suzanne Wright style, but different enough that it felt fresh, new, and unbelievably AWESOME! These characters are EVERYTHING!

Gah!! I loved it so, so much.

As always, the audiobook is perfection! Jill Redfield embodies this character so well.

Wright hasn't lost her touch, Madisyn and Bracken are fab characters and I liked the fact there isn't any unnecessary drama between the two. Madisyn in particular I loved, she is fierce and the animal she shifts into a perfect reflection of her.

Filled with action, a good amount of ass kicking and steam this is another welcome addition to the series. The tone of this is slightly different to what has come before but it works. Again, secondary characters that add to the enjoyment of the story, I p
Following the same formula of the other books in the series, this one focuses on Madisyn, lone cat shifter who works at the shifter bar where Bracken, wolf shifter of the Mercury pack, also works security.

The two had been eyeing each other for a while, but Bracken is struggling with the trauma of losing his whole family while being helpless to do anything about it, so nothing happens between them. That is until Madisyn gets in trouble for keeping the location of one of the loners of the sanctuar

This book is the continuation of the Mercury Pack series with close ties and lots of cameo from the Phoenix Pack.. I like to read the books in order but you could pick this up as a random PNR and do ok. As part of the series, it made me so happy to see Bracken begin to heal.

I loved that Bracken and Madisyn were both a bit quirky in human and animal form. I loved that they really needed to both break down the protective walls they had constructed. These two grew and changed together an

I love this series! Suzanne Wright writes the best characters! They are so funny and so vulnerable at the same time. I have wanted to know Madisyn's story since we first met her. And I had to look up the kind of cat she was (I won't say in case you haven't read the book) but I hadn't heard of the type she is and it's so cute! I love that she's just a bit crazy.

This is the fourth book in the Mercury Pack Series. Each book can be read as a stand alone but it is best read in order so you get the full enjoyment out of the series.

I really enjoyed this book. In the previous book Bracken has a traumatic event happen to him and this book takes place a few months after that happened. He's changed from those events so he'd not exactly the happy go lucky guy we see in previous books.

I liked the way Wright dealt with the events in his life. He changed due to his

“I won’t be pushed away,” Bracken warned. “I won’t be kept at a distance. I won’t tolerate walls or barriers – not just because I won’t allow there to be anything standing between us, but because you don’t need to protect yourself from me. You hear me, Madisyn? I’ll move at your pace, but you have to let me in. You have to get used to not being alone anymore.” 1 likes
