About this ebook

“Unapologetically raw and deliciously filthy, Shepherd & Claire's dark, gritty story is an emotional punch to the gut!” - Anna Zaires, New York Times bestselling author

The Alpha wants her for himself.

A savage conqueror brought Claire’s glittering city to its knees.

After a lifetime of concealing her Omega nature, thriving despite all odds, she has lost everything. Her status, her safety, her dreams of living unbonded to a brute.

Now, she is at the mercy of a jealous, possessive villain.

Begging him to save the most vulnerable of her suffering people, she finds that the infamous Shepherd—conqueror and mastermind—has no mercy to offer.

He has only demands and a subtle smirk that lets her know he’s fully aware of his power over her.

The first book in Addison Cain's exciting, raw, and suspense-filled Paranormal series is an addictive Dark Romance that will consume you mind, body, and soul.

Too weird! Could not get past the whole first chapter. Others may like the book and it may be well written but not for me. Since I did not read it. I can not leave a review about the contents. I did give it a two because the author took the time to write a book that I am sure some readers will like. The effort deserved something.

I enjoyed the book, however it bothered me slightly how the characters were described in ways of a breeding dog, although as I read on I did get over that and enjoy myself.

This is not a romance. But the characters and world building make the constant SA almost bearable. The most romance genre specific aspect is that cheating is the breaking point for the fmc.
