Overview

An original full length dark paranormal erotica novel, not available in print, on sale for a limited time.

WELCOME TO AXL WOLFDORN'S WORLD WHERE THE WOLFEN HAVE LIVED AND THRIVED IN UNDERGROUND CAVERNS FOR 1500 YEARS...

On the edge of civilization, there is a place called Circle City, Alaska. The last town before the Yukon Flats gives way to frigid desolation.

DON'T TAKE IN STRAYS IN CIRCLE CITY...

When Zoe O'Brien, a secluded widow, kills a crazed mother wolf and saves the only cub from sure death, she ignites a war between the Wolfen Clan and the Kontar Clan. The wolf people have been enemies of the dog people for centuries and the cub she takes in is heir to the Wolfen throne.

CAUGHT AND IMPRISONED BY WILD CREATURES WHO CARE NOTHING FOR HUMAN LAW...

Taken prisoner by the Wolfen for murder and kidnapping, Zoe is forced to see and do things with creatures she never knew existed, held against her will in a world she both desires and fears.

A MAN ON THE EDGE OF TURNING INTO A BEAST...

Axl Wolfdorn is coming of age, ready for his Unleashing and on the hunt for his Moonswan, the female he will choose for the Chase and the royal Feral Consummation.

A WOMAN WHO SHOWED COMPASSION....

But how can he consider bonding with a mate when the only scent deep within his nose is the tangy scent of the woman who saved his life, the very woman who forced his clan into war, the woman he must now kill to avenge his mother's death?

CIRCLE CITY: LORD OF THE WOLFEN ~ BOOK I by Alisha Paige
How much wild can one woman take? Do you have enough wild in you to make it to The End?

Some Words of Warning:
This book was months away from releasing in print worldwide when the book was pulled due to "creative differences" between the author and editor. This book is rated R due to Adult Situations, Violence and Drug Use. The editor was wanting to dilute this book, removing most love scenes, toning down the war between the Wolfen and Kontar and removing all drug use. The author wrote this book intending it to be an ultra dark paranormal romance, bordering on horror for fans of the blackest romance novels and makes no apologies for multiple sex partners, torture scenes, war scenes, and recreational drug use. The author makes it clear to the reader that the Wolfen are NOT human beings and are half human, struggling with their animal side, running with the pack, loving with the Pack. Furthermore, the author believes half men-half wolf creatures would take full advantage of natural plants for medicinal purposes as well as recreational purposes to enhance sexual awareness and for relaxation. Those offended by a book about wild creatures living life on the edge, at psychological war with the beast within, and using natural plants for pharmaceutical use may want to reconsider buying this book and search for a fluffier read.

A Word From the Author:

I wrote this book after watching a PBS special on wolves. I started wondering what would happen if there were real people who were half wolves who lived in packs and were ruled by an alpha male. I decided to place the Wolfen in a remote place so they would not be discovered and able to thrive for thousands of years without detection. The book grew from there. After deciding on Alaska as the setting for the novel, I researched the area and came across many mentions of marijuana and how many plants are allowed in every household. With all the benefits of medicinal marijuana, I decided to incorporate it into Wolfen Life. Though I'm not a marijuana user, I can appreciate the movement for legalization of medical marijuana and have read of the many health benefits of the plant.

I really stretched the bounds with this book; blending horror, erotica and paranormal and wanted to see an extremely dark and wild story unfold. I hope I have succeeded. I hope you enjoy Circle City.

    Great book! Original that on shifter mythology. Characters were fully developed, even minor characters had back story. Twisty-turny story that all came together beautifully at the end. Can't wait for book 2!

    Sexy, gripping, mesmerizing!

    Lord of the Wolfen by Alisha Paige is the first book in the wildly sexy series, Circle City. It's a delightful, spicy and very sensual read, with very likeable and well developed characters. It's a perfect book for chilly spring evenings, it will most definitely keep you warm!


    The heroin of this story, Zoe O'Brien, is a secluded and lonely widow, who, after loosing her husband and son in a car accident, decides to live far away from civilization. She lives alone in a worn log cabin built on snow covered Alaskan ground. The story stars with Zoe being yanked out of sleep by a wolf howl, followed by terrifying yelping. Convinced that local hunters trespassed on her property to kill a wolf, she pulls on her husband's jacket and runs out in hope to stop them. Instead of hunters, though, she finds a crazed mother wolf, who already killed seven of her pups and is now about to kill the last one. Zoe shoots the female wolf, just in time to save herself from being brutally ripped to pieces. She picks up the pup, cradles it against her chest and brings it home with her, intending to take care of the terrified poor thing.


    The pup he saved is not just any pup, though. As Zoe learns later, Axl (cause that's his real name) is a Wolfen, one of the People of Wolf, able to shift into a wolf form at will. As a matter of fact, he is the heir to the Wolfen throne. Accused of murdering the Wolfen Clan leader's daughter and kidnapping Axl, Zoe is taken captive by the Wolfen and she's imprisoned in the Circle City. She finds herself in the middle of the war between Wolfen Clan and the Kontar Clan, surrounded by creatures she never knew existed. Zoe's life is about to be changed forever and there's nothing she can do about it.


    Alisha Paige has written an unbelievably fascinating and captivating paranormal romance. She created an amazing, mesmerizing world, filled with beautiful, sexy creatures, burning desires and steamy fantasies. This book is erotic, fast paced and enthralling. Paige brings the reader into a fantasy world of Wolves and Dogs, a world of passion and eye-popping rituals. Erotica fans will love the sizzling heat of this story! It's one of those books you just can't put down until you've read it all in one setting! I really enjoyed the plot. Even though I am not at all a fan of Erotica genre, I had a lot of fun reading Lord of the Wolfen, it was perfectly balanced and not to overwhelming in it's sexiness. Whether you're a fan of Erotica, or you simply enjoy Paranormal/Fantasy novels, I think you should give this book a try, it really is a great read!

    Erotica and horror, perfectly combined

    I haven't read a lot of shape-shifter books. I get the feeling this book maybe isn't what most readers are accustomed to reading about wolves,particularly of the shape-shifter variety. But for someone like me, I found this story - especially the grittier aspects - to be realistic and intriguing. I like the author's attention to detail, and her realistic use of dialogue. Horror and erotica are two of my favorite genres, and this book definitely has both. A great read.

    Great read

    Fast paced and well developed characters and story line. The porn and marijuana business was not appealing to me, but i still felt the book deserved five stars. I enjoyed the plot and characters and look forward to reading more of this series-uncensored; it really wouldn't be the same if chopped and revised!

    Fast Paced and action packed

    Fast paced and detailed. Circle City: Lord of the Wolfen is a new series by Author Alisha Paige who brings many worlds of paranormal together in this action packed and quick paced book.

    Axl and Zoe go through a quick whirlwind romance that you attribute to "Love at first Sight". The sexual tension and release will leave you squirming in your seat and ready for a cold shower.

    The plot line is deep and the twists and turns of the book will keep you wondering how things will happen and how it will end.

    This book is not for the faint at heart or young adult reader. It is a true adult novel with adult situations, explicit sexual details and is very open about drug use. While it might not be for all audiences, it is a good read and intricate story and anyone with an open mind will enjoy the start of this series.

    I look forward to seeing what happens in the future Circle City series.

    I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!

    Reviewed by Allison Harris: I started reading this book on a Friday night and finished Sunday morning! A very long book but that made it even better because I just did NOT want to say goodbye to these characters! Ms. Paige created a world like no other. I found the glossary at the beginning very helpful and intriguing. She outlined the two clans and the terms used in this tantilizing world hidden away in remote Alaska where the Wolfen clan and the Kontar clan live and war in modern day times. There is a whole lot of story in this epic novel with very hot love scenes sprinkled throughout. A great mix of a good story with lots of passion just kept me turning the pages! This book is not predictable! Lots of surprises kept me guessing until the end. Can't wait for the Book II. I'm now reading The Hour Glass Witch and loving it! Thanks to Ms. Paige for keeping her books affordable too. I hate paying paperback price for an ebooks. And this book was a huge bargain. She could have charged much for a book this length. What a treat! I highly recommend this book for those who love a hot romance with an edge of your seat storyline.

    I highly recommend this book if you're into paranormal, telepathic, mystical shifters.

    I really enjoyed reading about Axl and Zoe. The story was well written and the characters were realistic. Trixie had a secret weapon don't know what took her so long to use it against Scar. I would love to know if Trixie and Earl would get together once they saw each other again. Oh there are so many questions, Axl's parents and his siblings, Magna and Ty. I am waiting for Alisha to continue on with the series. I love the werewolf shifter books. At first I didn't think that I would like them because of them being paranormal. My first author was Tressie Lockwood, then I found other authors such as Lena Matthews, Nicky Charles and Selena Blake. Whenever I am online I usually look for the Werewolf shifter books first.

    No just no. Werewolves meet the Sopranos? One of the worst books

    No just no. Werewolves meet the Sopranos? One of the worst books I have ever read, and I forced myself to finish... it became a game of what stupid mafia idea would she add in next. Who wants to be depressed reading a book? No redeeming qualities in any of the characters and there were a ton of them to keep straight!
    It did not have twists and turns, the author just could not write well and it was a convoluted and choppy storyline. Axl was weak and just went along with the family pormo business - easy excuse to cheat repeatedly on his wife.

    Does not live up to the hype

    The novel was a great concept and the take on shifters was very unique. However the story lacked fluidity. There were many times during the book that I had to read a chapter again becasue it did not flow or the plot seemed to jump all over the place. The characters were not developed well enough for me to care about them. However it was very hot and steamy.
