This book was really good. After that cliffhanger, looking forward to reading more from this author

I made it through about 35%. Her internal monologues/peps talks were driving me crazy! I couldn’t do it. 😂

First of all this book contains some of my favourite tropes: fated mates, rejected mates, shifters and best of all for me, a strong alpha female FMC.

Sky has a lot to take on after losing her father, finding out what happened to him and getting justice, becoming the Alpha of her pack and dealing with challenges of that because she’s a woman, the rising tension with the Langley sleuth and then throw on finding out she’s set to be married off to the Alpha of the Whitlock pack.

Rachel is So Talented!!

I have adored Rachel since her debut book Ascension was released and her new world keeps all of the promises I have come to expect from her writing.

This new world of wolves is recovering after a loss and I truly, truly enjoyed falling in love with Sky - she is an incredible FMC! Not to mention her hot as anything men too. However, full disclosure, Rachel throws us right off the cliff at the end and it's brutal!

Doesn't stop me loving it though.

Bonded and Betrothed, the first book in the Fated Pack series by Rachel Callahan is an absolutely phenomenal read! If you’re a fan of paranormal fated mate RHs with plenty of hot alpha males, a kick butt alpha female and lord of steamy chemistry between them all—then read on! Jam packed with amazing characters, an action filled plot, betrayals and deceit at every turn and secrets that will leave you questioning everything you know, this book is a definite must read.

Bonded & Betrothed was a fantastic book! It was a fast paced, slow burn, reverse harem that I didn’t want to end! That cliffhanger has me praying that things are not what they seem!

I love that Skylar’s mates came around one at a time, and the moment they connect and they realize what’s happening! I love it! As far as the mates go, Everett has completely captured my attention as the broody, possessive alphahole. My favorite type. Zeke with his charming & playful side and really hard to resist. A

After the murder of her father, Skylar is back to lead the pack. Finding the killer amongst all the lies and secrets won’t be easy. Throw in fated mates, an uneasy alliance, and bears out for revenge, and you have yourself and action packed,

A great story with fantastic characters. Can’t wait to get my hands on book 2.

I LOVE a good shifter romance! A shifter romance AND the female lead has multiple mates? SIGN ME UP! Really though, I enjoyed this book quite a lot. Skylar, the FMC, returns home after many years away from her pack. Now filling the role of Alpha of the Draven pack following her father’s murder, she is also thrown into a conflict with a sleuth of bears who are looking for revenge. On top of that, a tentative alliance with another pack and throw some mates into the mix and you’ve got yourself an a ...more

This is the first book I've read by Rachel Callaham and wow was I blown away!

I did go into this practically blind. I just saw sexy shifter, reverse harem and vengeance to serve and just went sign me right up!

I loved the fresh feel this book gave me over having Skylar as an Alpha of her own pack. I haven't come across a shifter book where the FMC was the alpha before, so this took me by surprise. 

Skylar has a fear of finding her mates and when she finds her first mate... Well, let's just say I

This book checks all the boxes, if you’re in the mood for a shifter, fated mates romance! Skylar is in a difficult spot, trying to step into her role as Alpha of the pack after her father’s death. She has been away from the pack and wolf society for the last ten years, and now she has to learn on the fly while grieving her father. The situation is made even more complicated by the terms of an alliance her father was working on with a neighboring rival wolf pack - he had given Skylar’s hand in ma ...more

Another great start to a series by Rachel! Murder, wolves, bears, guns, sabotage, death. It has it all. I LOVED that the book started out with a female already Alpha of her pack, even though it came at the cost of losing her father.
Skylar is strong, vengeful, and an all around boss b$&ch. She has a deep fear of finding mates because of how the loss of her mother affected her father. Without giving away spoilers, I’m glad that the whole book didn’t focus on that fear and she overcame it rather q

I'm in love!! Amazing start to this new series!

Bonded and Betrothed is book 1 in the Fated Pack series. Its a paranormal reverse harem.

Skylar is back in her pack, after being gone for the last 10 years. Her father just died, and she is now Alpha. He was murdered and she wants to find out who did it. She is also stuck with her "step monster" and half sister.

Wow, what an emotional start to a story, it had me in tears. I’m barely 10% of the way into this book and I know I love it already.
Omg my smile was so big when Sky met the the Whitlock alpha . I was doing a huge scream inside my head. The scene with Zeke oh boy I think my brain is about to explode haha.
I couldn’t help but laugh when Sky was a little drunk and mixed Zayn up with Zeke.

Enjoyed this book

I really liked this book. It had all the feels. Passion, betrayal, falling in love, second chance friendships… so much and of course murder. There were a few spots where the plot didn’t seem to go anywhere which got kinda boring. Lots of chatting back and forth but maybe that was to build up the characters. I skimmed those parts as I was starting to lose my concentration. The plot was actually intriguing. Female alpha pretty much exiled until her dad gets murdered. She comes bac

Bonded and Betrothed was an absolute powerhouse of a book! She is a thicccc book and full to the bring of characters, plots, betrayals and secrets. Skylar is a rare female Alpha who has been treated badly by her neglectful father, and even so she remains loyal to him and their pack. When he is murdered she finds her life turned upside down and she's left trying to lead a pack who is stuck in the old ages and she's not connected to. Not only that, but she's got to try to find out who her Father's ...more

4.5 rating rounded up to 5

Skylar unexpectedly becomes Alpha of her pack. She’s been gone for 10 years and has to catch up on the packs business. Her former best friend/boyfriend and current beta Monte helps her acclimate to her new Alpha status.

Everett, Zeke, and Arsenio are the Alphas of another pack that they have alliances with. They have a common enemy and need to work together. However, as soon as she meets them her mate bond explodes.

An intriguing New World

Skylar's father has died and now she must return home. Once there she not only has to face the memories of her father, learn how to run her pack but finds herself betrothed to a complete stranger. Navigating a surprise betrothal and finding her fated mates is certainly a challenge she was not expecting.
As if all this emotional turmoil was not enough Skylar also finds her self on the precipice of a shifter war!

WOW! This is the first book I have read by Rachel and it just blew me away. I got swept up into the wolf shifter world, keeping me riveted to my seat the whole way through. I was gripping my kindle tightly, biting my nails with anticipation and gasping at the turn of events happening right before my eyes. It was one hell of a rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to end.

The characters were absolutely amazing, and I fell head over heels for Sky. She’s such a fierce character that has been dealt
Michelle The Outgoing Bookworm
A female alpha is a powerhouse in their own right. Bringing in multiple male alphas to be mates solidifies it.

Skylar is that alpha who yields her power fairly but still is no pushover. She’ll need it when she takes over her pack after her father is murdered and finds out she’s betrothed to a rival pack’s alpha. To make matters more complicated she deals with the fact he’s her fated mate along with others as well as someone in both their packs is selling them out to the bears who are out for bloo

This was the first book I’ve read by Rachel Callahan and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while.

Skyla has returned to claim her place as Alpha after the murder of her father and nothing goes the way she expected. With twists and turns in the form of grief, untold deals, mates, betrayal and more Skyla is put to the test the moment she returns. I love the way she remains strong and makes decisions based on what is best for her and her pack.

This is the first book in the Fated Pack series. It follows Skylar Draven (I love that name) as she comes back home after her father is murdered. She is now the Alpha of her pack and must navigate being in charge, finding her fathers murderer, a turf war with bear shifters, and oh yeah...finding several mates! She tries to fight the mate bond as she doesn't want the distraction with everything else going on in her life.

Skylar is just the type of FMC I love. Strong, fierce and confident.

Coming back to Endcliffe to become alpha after her father's murder, she is not only dealing with searching for her father's killer but also the Langley Slueth, bear shifters, and then there's the fact that her father bargained her away in marriage to pull their pack together with the Whitlock pack.

With all these issues on her plate, she never expected to meet her fated mates and never expected them to be a part of a pack she w

I think it's going to take me a while to get over the end of this book. I mean i love a good cliff hanger, I really do, but the anxiety is killer! Great characters, fantastic story and an excellent bad guy, you love to hate. The connections in this harem are varied and that makes it that much more believable. I love the coming home type stories and this one delivers. The side characters are important in this story and they are great, the promise of finding out more about everyone in the next boo ...more

That Cliffhanger!

Skylar is back to lead her pack after her father is murdered. Trying to catch his killer is no easy task, and with the lies, betrayal and deception, it may be impossible. Not only does she need to find his killer, but she also finds out she's betrothed to the Alpha of another pack. Skylar has a lot on her plate, but thankfully she has her best friend Monte...right?
