I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Rike West is looking for his mate but there is some that like to cause trouble for him. Rike has to find a female that can give him a child. But he is having problems finding one that will be his and just his. Now would be the time to get the book.

I quite at 25%. It's bad. I love an anti-hero, but that's not what we have here in a man who murders his first wife in part to be with the heroine. And that wasn't the only problem I have with the 1/4 I read. I bailed rather than torture myself. ...more

Their union was more war than romance!
by sewsummore

I am not usually a fan of fantasy novels, but this book grabbed my attention from the start. Rike was King of the Lycans, a dark purebred Lycan, and he sought to claim what was his as his father's son. Under Lycan law, Zacharias's claim was equal to his, since Zacharias was his father's Beta. Rike had only three more years to take a mate and birth an heir to cement his claim before his claim becomes void. He would only take a purebred Lycan to b

I listened to the book on audio and the narration was really good. I just don’t think the book was for me. I loved the steaminess of the book. I wish there was more world building and more on the shifting side. Since it’s the first book I would have wanted more details on pack life and why things are they put into place that way. I feel the issues between Rike and Amelia would get resolved rather quickly which caused the chapter to be short. The author introduced some great characters and her mi ...more

I've read several books written by Lasasha Flame; she has done a great job at writing a good book; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of books her books.

Fantastic story line; caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

WOW! Amazing! This story grabbed my attention by the throat from the get go! Rike and Amelia are high octane... such an explosive romance and once she decides on board she is ALL in! Rike is the big bad of the Lycans and feared but also loved by all. Amelia is a free spirit who bounces around where ever her fancy takes her. When they meet not only do fireworks go off but the bells n whistles too. Rike puts her through a lot and she does her fair share also but they eventually learn they are mean ...more

Rike West wants to gain even more power than he currently holds.

But he needs a Queen and an heir or someone else can take that empire before he can. He picks Amelia Torrin, a purebred free-spirited Lycan, to give him the heir and complete his plans. He never expected her to deny him! Trying to force her into this is not a good ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Lots of romance and plot twists to keep you interested. Rike and Amelia are both strong characters who want things their way, they need to learn to compromise some. I'm looking forward to other books in the series. Definitely a must read for paranormal fans.

This was a full story with detailed world building. The main characters were exciting and combustible. Although the H was looking just for someone to give him children, he was open to love. The female character was no pushover. She held her own against everyone including the H. I found the story to be exciting and interesting. It is a different way of looking at Lycans.

This is a must read book, it can get a little confusing keeping up with the histories in the book but keep at it, it is well worth it. There is an instant connection between Amelia and Rike the chemistry is sizzling hot, but Amelia doesn’t trust Rike and is not afraid to tell him that. Love Amelia she is sassy and a very strong female role model which is very much lacking in books. Can not wait for book two!

Rike West is a Lycan who wants power and to take claim over his family’s empire but needs a heir to do so.
Amelia Torrin is a modern day Lycan who isn’t tied up in the hierarchy of the Lycans.
They meet and the chemistry is instant. Amelia doesn’t trust Rike based upon his actions and history so she refuses to consider Rike as a mate.
Of course what’s a great romance without a little chase and the build up of them falling hard for each other.
This book is the first in the series. It was a little c

Rike and Amelia what a storyline. Firstly she meets rike when she visits her friend then she causes treason so she gets killed but blames rike. There is a lot of chasing , lots of feisty arguments, but a whole lot of loving. I felt this book had it all for me. Strong characters and an amazing storyline that enthralled me. Fantastic read

This is the start of a new series with the first of the book telling of how the Lycan was created and then how the different breeds came about. This book deals mainly with the dark breed. Greed and the thirst for more power causes Rike to marry a purebred Lycan with the main purpose of producing an heir which would allow him to have to lay claim to his father’s empire and rule over both of them. The relationship between Rika and Amelia is explosive to say the least but the sexual attraction is s ...more

This book started out one way but by the end your drawn into this world were its not all it seems. You have different fractions of power fighting to stay on top evil assassination plots, betrayal, marital discord, greed and death.

Will say right away if cheating is a hardline in the sand for you, or getting the down and dirty details on the horizontal time on one of the leads with someone else this may not be the story for you. Also a trigger warning as the Lycan’s were created through violence and inbreeding as was the norm for the elites of that time. There are also some homo-erotic events, in case that makes some of you uncomfortable.

Since we are privy to some information from early in the book and Amelia is not her in

Claimed by LaSasha Flame is a dark paranormal romance that really is a wild ride.  An exciting read where sparks fly, things are set aflame, and the road to love is not an easy one.  Well written with interesting and entertaining characters in a fantastic new world I can not wait to explore further.

Claimed: Dark Breeds of the Lycans is the first book in the Dark Immortal Flames series, written by author LaSasha Flame. This book tells the story of Rike West, who is known as the dark king. Rike’s number one goal is to gain more power, and his best chance to acquire it is by getting married to a purebred lycan. Although, that has proven to be more difficult than expected.

The author has provided a very in depth backstory with a Pronunciation Guide, Glossary and Origin story at the very beginning. The story was slow to start as it felt like it was more of a factual retelling and not a story to begin with. The two main characters Rike and Amelia are explosive from the beginning. Rike needs an heir to be able to regain his lands and maintain his power and Amelia does not want to give in. They both feel the bond that is between them, however exhibit very different re ...more

I truly enjoyed reading Claimed: Dark Breeds of the Lycan from author Lasasha Flames. I believe a story is only as powerful as its characters and Rike and Amelia leaped from the pages. I love stories where the hero and heroine are immediately drawn to each other but have to overcome their own doubts and fears in addition to external obstacles. If you enjoy romances that offers action, drama, mystery, steamy scenes and a surprising twist, I highly recommend this book.

This is a new author to me and I definitely will be reading more from her!! The characters are well developed in the story and the storyline is intriguing. Rike is now the King of the Lycans after his father‘s passing, well if he can marry and have a heir within three years. Amelia runs from Rike and his lust for power but she is forced to marry and mate him. The mating is more like more than anything, Amelia is defiant and won’t give into Rike’s demands.

This was an excellent book. The plot and characters were excellent. I loved the many twists and turns this book took. I love supernatural books because instead of bed-time stories, these were the types of stories that my mother used to tell - all from her head.
I loved the way the author detailed so much about not only the characters but the world in which they lived. She did an excellent job in explaining their character traits - what caused them to love the way they did, what produced angst am

Sadly didnt finish the book.
Dont get me wrong was well written good story line and plot. But it seriously gave a new meaning to a slow burn story.
It time jumped a head alot. Didnt really explain how or when or why on many things. N felt really chaotic with a lot of topics in the book. Not my cup of tea sorry.
