She did not disappoint and you will find me following this series in the future. I really hope more of those crash survivors find some shifter men for mates. Barone Carla got on a plane headed out on a music tour o Creative twist on many popular themes.
Barone Carla got on a plane headed out on a music tour only to crash fifty years in the future. Not only has the world faced Armageddon, but most of the female population has died during various epidemics. While looking for help for other survivors, Carla and a fellow female passenger are captured and then given away as the prize in a Bride Fight. Taye Wolfe joined the fight once he identified the scent of his mate.
Not a foe to be taken lightly, the alpha wolf wins the competition and returns to his den with his new bride only to discover she isn't as excited about their mating as he is. Ever the gentleman determined to win her love and trust, he sets out to woo the object of his affection.
His efforts will make the most stoic reader swoon. I thought Ms. Barone did a great job of world building. Not only did she have to translate her vision of Armageddon, but she also created a world in which shifters and the clan of Native Americans they arose from are believable and outted to the world at large.
Her portrayal of how a lady of our times would deal emotionally as well as physically under the circumstances was quite believable. In effect, we would all react differently and that is exactly what she has done with her characters in this book and I suspect the subsequent books in the series as well. Taye is precious as he works to figure Carla out and prove to her that he is a good man who wants her happiness and love.
He struggles to understand her and what it means to be a good husband while she struggles to find a place in a new world and new time. Writing songs was a clever way for Carla to become all too human to the readers.
It was a peek into her heart and very true to character. My favorite part has to be when all the young wolves are entranced by Carla. Now that she is the first and only female in the pack, they are mighty curious about her and as boys will be boys, they are super curious about the couple's sex life, listening at the door. All that is girlie is new to them and they are so adorable, discovering their misconceptions about the female gender.
As in, we are not all giddy to cook and clean, boys. There's lots of opportunity for humor and the gal pal club that is popular in many chick lit books as this series progresses and the female population from the past incorporates itself into the future. Boy, would that be a fun cocktail hour to sit in on. So all you shifter fans, Armageddon fans and romance fans, this is one I definitely recommend you check out.
If you've gotta crash, why not into the arms of a hunky alpha shifter? View 1 comment. Jan 15, Somia rated it liked it Shelves: paranormal-romance. Singer Carla gets on a plane to Denver but the plane crashes, luckily she survives relatively unhurt. A future where women are scarce and Bride Fights take place where men get the chance to gain a wife.
Carla is won by Alpha Taye Wolfe, and the rocky start to their romance begins. A nice light read overall. Presently free on Amazon. View all 4 comments. May 29, D. The song at the end brought this down to 2-stars. Yikes but this was bad. Carla takes a plane in the year and crashes 50 years later, where the world is completely different. Not only did humans decide to annihilate each other in a nuclear war, but also an asteroid fell on Earth, so women are scarce.
Back up a moment How does that make any sense? I know this book has time travel but that doesn't mean you can make illogical shit up without even trying to explain it.
Anyhow, given the scarcity of women, Carla is offered as the prize in a bride fight, where men fight to the right to be her husband. Taye, a wolf shifter, wins Carla and immediately whisks her to his pack. In the book, there's no explanation whatsoever about where these wolf shifters came from. Was it the nuclear war? The asteroid? Or did they always live hidden among humans?
Who the hell knows? Taye is actually a pretty nice guy so there's not much of a conflict. Once Carla realizes she could have gotten it worse, she accepts Taye. The whole "I've learned how to please a woman through romance novels" was pretty funny and actually an inspired idea. We could only wish that a lot of modern men would do the same! I thought this was going to be steamier and was disappointed when it wasn't.
And that song at the end was horrible. Not continuing the series or trying anything else by this author. View all 3 comments.

I really love Brutus. He and Denise are flawed people who manage to make their love work in the end. Discover new books on Goodreads. Sign in with Facebook Sign in options.
