Overview

Cyrus runs Manhattan with an iron fist. He will keep his pack safe whether they want him to or not. But something is missing and lately he is more on edge than ever. With his pack at risk and the Alphas of Philadelphia and Boston breathing down his neck, he doesn’t anticipate the arrival of his true mate, particularly when he finds her in a coffee house across the street from his office building. She’s not only identical to the mate of the alpha of Philadelphia but has no idea that werewolves even exist, let alone that she’s one herself. Cyrus is determined to protect her while he solves the mystery of her life.
Betsy, strong, smart, and determined, has been suffering for months trying to keep her parents alive. She doesn’t know where the werewolf who followed her home came from and she doesn’t care, he just needs to leave her alone. But as Betsy gets to know Cyrus, she will discover things about herself that she’d never believed possible. She’s the only one who can help Cyrus keep his pack safe—especially when the true believers are out to destroy them.

    ***Received from Fated Desires Publishing for an honest review**

    ***Received from Fated Desires Publishing for an honest review***

    Cyrus is an Alpha through and through. He cares for his pack, is tough as nails, and doesn't take crap from anyone. At times, he comes across as a complete ass but, I think, it's due to what he took on when he became Manhattan's Alpha. It wasn't just the responsibility of being a leader but mending together lives broken by war, heartache, and loss.

    Betsy is...broken. There are so many paranormal stories of broken heroes and heroines, and they are indeed broken. But Betsy... Her story, her history, really touched me and broke my heart. Before she met Cyrus, she had and lost so much due to secrets and lies. Meeting Cyrus really helped put her back together, not into the woman she was before but into a woman who's strong enough to face her past, to stand beside her Alpha, and grab hold of a future she never thought possible.

    Alphas are often portrayed as detached men who only show affection to their mates, and usually in private more than in public. They come across as harsh, demanding, and domineering. I can't say Cyrus isn't any of those things. He is. He has a pack to run, treaties to observe and honor, new treaties to consider, and a company to run. But having Betsy changed him in a manner that was remarkably refreshing to read. He was still the "I'm Alpha and my word is law" kind of guy but she brought out a side of him I think even he was surprised to see. He became more caring toward his members of his pack, asking one warrior how he was doing, and even taking the time to listen to his sister.

    Ms. Royce is off to an incredible start with this book in what promises to be a great series. (If you haven't already done so, check out the prelude to this series, "Alpha Rising" in the Ever After anthology.) I can't wait to read more of her Fallen Alphas.

    Here it is. I hope it helps. - Bree

    Imagine this: <p> Your alarm clock has been going off for the past hour. Your parents yelling at you to get up and turn it off. When you don't yell back like you usually do, they walk down the hall and stop at your door. They knock on it. No reply. They knock louder, again. No reply. They rattle your door handle, but your door was locked. They reach above the door frame and grab the key. With their hands shaking, they slide the key into the lock, and wait for the 'click.' As soon as they heard it, they throw your door open. Their jaw drops. There you were, laying in middle of your floor, lifeless. Your lips blue, your skin pale. You, motionless. A pool of blood had formed around your body, your hand still gripped the empty pill bottle. They run over to you and begin to shake you violently. But you don't wake up. They grab your wrist, checking for a pulse. But, you're heart had stopped beating, hours ago. They call 911 through blurred vision. An ambulance comes, and they carry your lifeless body out, draping a white cloth over you. (The rest got deleted from my iPod but it is on my instagram _breehoran_ it is in the comments under the picture 'To anyone who has had suicidal thoughts..'

    *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

    --Actual rating 4.5 Skulls

    Rebecca Royce is a name to watch . She's starting to really get noticed by my fellow readers of paranormal fiction and with this her new Fallen Alphas series I can a certainly see why . This story which is full length follows on from her story Alpha Rising which appeared in the anthology Ever After . It's a standalone story which is fast paced and certainly kept this reader entertained.

    Cyrus is the werewolf Alpha of Manhattan and although he has a sister and his pack to care for something is most definitely missing from his life. Going into a coffee shop one day he stumbles upon the one thing guaranteed to make his inner wolf sit up and take notice, Betsy his mate! Slight problem though as she's engaged to a human and doesn't even realise that she's a werewolf herself!

    Betsy doesn't understand why all she can think about is the great smelling stranger in front of her but one thing is for sure she can't let her fiancé know just how attracted she is. Betsy has been blackmailed into a loveless relationship but the safety of her parents depends on her doing the right thing. Only problem is doing the right thing is getting harder as a certain gorgeous and demanding man is determined that her place is with him! When Cyrus sets his sights on something he will move heaven, earth and even the odd fiancé to get it and Betsy is most definitely his!

    This book has everything a lover of paranormal romance could ask for, a strong sexy loving hero, a heroine who possesses inner strength , wolves that will fight for their loved ones and villains who really need taking down and believe me the bad guys in this book are truly evil. This is a sexy tale set amongst shifters that will keep you turning the pages . The story progresses nicely and pretty soon we learn that these captivating wolves are much more than one dimensional. The author brings heart to the story and her interesting supporting characters really help to flesh out this new world that she's creating . A great read in what I'm sure is a series destined to do really well. It's a story that just works and although there's no cliffhanger as such I feel Ms Royce has a lot more planned for her readers.

    Thrills and chills to keep readers on their toes with this actio

    Thrills and chills to keep readers on their toes with this action packed and emotion grabbing werewolf romance.
    Betsy, a young woman with no idea who or what she is, is suddenly thrust into the world of werewolves when one suddenly pops up her into life and decides she’s his. Cyrus is the Manhattan Alpha and has a lot on going on in his life, like the two visiting alphas breathing down his neck and he certainly didn’t anticipate meeting his true mate and her needing his protection from the true believers out to destroy all werewolves.
    This fast paced plot gets the adrenalin pumping with lots of action, suspense and romance. The story is brought to life with vivid imagery, details and strong, charming characters that capture the imagination.  There are a few surprises that the reader doesn’t see coming and the action is well orchestrated and believable. All of the characters grab the reader’s attention, are easily related to and have the reader wanting to get to know them better.
    Cyrus and Betsy’s attraction to each other explodes from the pages and the relationship is obviously meant to be. Their emotions and reactions are conveyed with vibrant intensity that certainly captures the reader’s heart. Betsy quickly becomes a favorite with her strong, take charge attitude but with a vulnerable unsure side when it comes to dealing with the wolf side.  Cyrus is definitely all alpha but he takes protecting the pack a little too far and has a few things to learn with comes to dealing with a mate.  
    I really like how Cyrus explains to Betsy, the wolf’s attitude about doing what needs to be done and what is not acceptable.  I was caught up in the story from the very beginning and really taken with the characters and I really like the author’s spin on how the werewolves came into existence, such a sad but romantic way to come into being.  I can’t wait to get to know more of the Fallen Alphas’ characters better.

    Life changed for Betsy the moment Cyrus followed her into Starbu

    Life changed for Betsy the moment Cyrus followed her into Starbucks.  Betsy is in an untenable position being blackmailed into marrying a man she hates to protect her parents.  Cyrus is the Alpha of the Manhattan Pack of werewolves. Born to protect and Betsy’s fated mate.  Problem is Betsy is latent and doesn’t know she is a werewolf and then there is the whole protect the folks thing.  Cyrus runs a whole pack he isn’t going to let a little thing like a fiancé and extortion stop him from getting the one thing that is for him alone. Betsy’s heart.
    This is a fast paced, sometimes intense read loaded with plenty of tongue in cheek humor.  Betsy is stronger than it first appears and Cyrus will need every bit of that strength.  Lots of wonderful secondary characters to build on. 
    I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
