Book review Bitten By Deceit Hadley Werewolves #1 by Shawntelle Madison (novella)
Alpha wolf Emma Parker is loyal to a fault, even if it means losing the love of her life when he’s ousted from the pack. She’s never stopped needing him, and when a black witch curses the pack, she wonders if she’ll even survive. It’s a poison of the blood, and with each bite, the virus spreads, leaving the infected rabid and under the control of an evil Alpha.
Kyle Benton is starting over. He’s a lone wolf, betrayed by the only woman he’s ever loved. Until Emma barges back into his life, as gorgeous and determined as ever. He’s hell bent on resisting her, or at least making her suffer. But she needs him in a way that touches him to his very soul. Now he has to determine how to set her free, and if he can, how he can ever let her go.
This is a very short 61 page novella. It's hard to pack a lot into so few pages. Emma is in trouble. Something bad is going on in her pack and the alpha Liam is biting people and they are getting sick. He's got a black witch with him and she's the one that's helping him give everyone he bites a terrible illness. Once it gets in the blood he controls them. When Emma gets bitten she leaves town to find to find Kyle the man she loved but let go a year ago. Kyle lost a fight with Liam after Liam and his friends fought dirty the night before and busted up his knee so he couldn't win their fight. He had everything and lost it in one night. Now Emma has found him and although he resists at first he can't turn her away. Liam follow Emma to the town Kyle is in and a fight ensues. Can Kyle defeat Liam and get the love of his life back as well as his pack as their alpha? That's the question in this novella. While there is plenty of action i wish it had been a bit longer with more details of a relationship between Kyle and Emma. It has the potential to really be great. Still a good read for someone who wants just a good evening of reading. 3 out of 5 stars for Bitten by Deceit by Shawntelle Madison.
