True to form Ms Marsh has again written another great story in the Blue Moon Brides series. Although it is a better experience if you read the prior books, it is not necessary as you don't feel like you picked up in the middle of the story. If you like paranormal romance you will enjoy this book. There is romance and suspense and plenty of angst to go around. I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Of all the brothers, Dag is the one closest to being taken over by his wolf half. He's the quiet one, desperate to find the Mate to keep him from becoming lost from a past of dark deeds, but unaccustomed to doing what it takes to win a woman over. After saving the outspoken and strong-willed Riley from vampires he thinks he finally has the chance for his own HEA but will have to put the domineering ways of his past behind him to earn her trust and love. Dag is a sexy beast whose actions speak louder than words. He admits he's not good at romance but is more than willing to learn.
Riley is a strong-willed woman more than capable of taking care of herself. She wants to be thought of as an equal but is more than willing to take satisfaction in the sexual delights Dag offers. She has secrets she's keeping though that might lead to problems as her jealous brothers come to her rescue when the vampire problem escalates. Theirs is a battle of wills and of the sexes that is fun to watch and immensely satisfying in its conclusion. Though the story drags a bit in the latter half it's still the steamy and erotic relationship between Dag and Riley that keeps things interesting.

If alpha wolf Dag Breaux doesn’t find his Blue Moon Bride soon, he may lose his last tenuous hold on humanity and time is running very short. The last thing mechanic Riley Jones wants is a bossy, protective man hovering over her. With the threat of an ancient vampire lurking nearby, is anyone safe? Will Riley admit that the attraction to the hot Dag is more than just sexual in time to save those she loves? Can she teach Dag to express his feelings with more than his body?
Claimed by the Pack by Anne Marsh is an emotional time bomb, full charged with electric sensual heat, just waiting to explode! Dag is so damaged and ragged, you have to feel for him. A strong female like Riley is the perfect character to play opposite him. Probably the best of the series, smokin’ hot, dark and sensuous!
I received a copy of this book from the author as part of the Blue Moon Tour and Giveaway at Tome Tender December 15, in exchange for my honest review.
A little Lovin' in the Bayou
Although, this is the third book in the Blue Moon Brides series it was an exciting introduction to a great pack of characters. I love that Dag is rough around the edges; his unapologetic attitude is SEXY as hell. In the beginning, I was not too fond of Riley’s character, I felt no connection. However, as the romance developed, so did her appeal. I will admit that Anne Marsh has impressed this reader with both her contemporary and paranormal series – put this author on your list if you have not yet experienced her writing.

Claimed by the Pack was a good read. The author manages to set the scene without using endless descriptions. And yet you can taste the atmosphere of the bayou, picture Dag’s boat in your mind. The story starts immediately and you are drawn into it from the first page. After that it is hard to put the book down.
Dag Breaux is following Riley Jones’ trail. He hopes she’s his Blue Moon Bride. She’s been captured by a vampire and Dag needs to free and protect Riley, as well as the women from her safe house. Then he has to try and make her see she’s his mate and belongs with his pack.
I liked Dag, a no-nonsense hero, sexy as hell. Alpha shifter, determined to get his way and protect Riley at all costs. The fact that he doesn’t talk much and is close to staying a wolf makes him even more interesting. Yet, he realises he has to compromise in order to keep Riley and let her be who she needs to be. I liked Riley, too. She’s her own woman, strong and independent, with her own secret. I hadn’t seen that one coming, but it really fit.
There were also some scenes that made me laugh. The collar was a nice touch and the interaction between Dag and Riley’s brothers made me smile as well. Made me wonder about how Dag’s meeting with Riley’s parents went...
The sex scenes are really steaming which makes the story incredibly sensual and erotic. The story develops quickly, no unnecessary information and subplots. This is a good thing, but in a way also a bad thing. The story is short and some things go a bit fast. Wolfs are supposed to recognise their mates immediately, but I would have found it more realistic if Riley had taken a bit more time to get used to someone like Dag and fall in love with him. And yes, I know ‘realistic’ is a strange word to use for a shifter romance.
All in all, a great read. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

As far as shifters go, I don't think they get any sexier than Dag Breaux. He's a diamond in the rough. Not very civilized, yet, but that will change with the appearance of Riley Jones. She's got a secret and she's Dag's Blue Moon Bride. She's his mate and he must do all he can to protect her from the vampire that's stalking her and the women she protects in the shelter she works at. Read on as Dag and Riley learn how to be together as a couple. They have the hot, steamy, no holds barred sex down to perfection but their relationship dynamics need work.
I love a good shifter series and this definitely qualifies. The sex is off the charts! Cajun werewolves have got to be the sexiest shifters out there. I really liked the fact that Dag was all caveman-like but was also willing to learn exactly what Riley wanted. Women could only hope for the kind of man that would bring her her own polka-dotted gift bag. This is book #3 in the Blue Moon Bride series and I can't wait for more!

Love these books. They are like my favourite chocolates with all the best ingredients, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, conflict and erotica. As good as Trueblood and much better than 50 shades. I am so glad I found this author. I want to find out more about Dag and Riley now so I will read the first two books. Thanks Anne, keep the books coming, so we do....(smiley face)

This book grabs you right from the beginning and takes the reader on a wild ride.
If you really enjoy paranormal/werewolves/shapeshifters then this is the book for you.
Dag Breaux, who is a major Alpha hero, has to find his soul mate in order to be able to shift between human and wolf.
Well, he finds it in Riley Jones, but she is no fawning female and is very independent.
The sparks fly and it's enjoyable to watch the two of them go back and forth and find their HEA in the end.
I'm usually not a big fan of paranormal( I read alot of it a few years ago and got burnt out on the genre but this book has changed my mind.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿
On the night of the Blue Moon, Dag Breaux is sent by the Alpha of his pack to find his mate in order to keep from changing to a full wolf. Once his mate is found, he will be able to continue shifting between his human and his wolf state. The woman he finds is being stalked by one of the ancient vampires roaming the bayous. Being a consumate Alpha, Dag wants to jump in and protect, but finds that the woman in not one to easily submit. She is feisty and capable, but also holds great passion, and passion is something Dag knows how to handle, because words and feelings are alien to him.
Working in a small town in the Bayou as a mechanic has suited Riley Jones just fine. She has always wanted to be out from under her brothers' protective yoke and knows how to take care of herself. Although falling in the hands of that vampire was not her best move. But now she was stuck with a huge wolfman, who could barely utter a word, but could make her melt with just a grunt or a glint of his eyes. And he insists on protecting 'his mate', claiming that is her. Well, she is all for the hot monkey sex he is offering, but has some serious questions about the 'mate' portion of the deal. She isn't sure she is ready to throw her life away to follow a wolf to his den, especially one so out of touch with his feelings!
It never ceases to amaze me how one writer can completely change your view on an entire genre of books.
Never a fan of shape-shifter stories, or vampire stories for that matter (with the exclusion of J.R. Ward!!), I found myself a little skeptical picking up this book. But being of the mind that it is better to get the hard things over with first, I tore right into it...........and never stopped until I was all done and so sated, I needed a drink, a smoke and a nap!!!! Holy friggin' jambalaya!!! If you promise me a Dag Breaux.....or a wolf like him in every shape-shifter story.......I will committ to reading them ALL!!! With the stipulation that Anne has to write them. Boy, that woman can do a sex scene..... what am I saying. She can do sexual tension that would burn blisters in 100-year old plaster!!
Dag Breaux is a wolf mostly, who only now is finding good use for his man side. Never really having had any experience communicating much of anything, other than being led by and acting on natural instinct, needing to explain himself or his actions, is completely alien to him. But he recognizes the need for it and is even able to communicate to some extent, his 'feelings' through some physical communication. His needs remain simple, he has found his mate, he needs her with him, needs to protect her, and needs to keep her by his side.....everything else becomes secondary.
Riley Jones is a bit of a mystery and prefers to keep overbearing males at a distance. In part to guard her secret, and in part because the last thing she needs is another man, in addition to her brothers, trying to control her life. Secretly, she enjoys the kind of protection Dag provides and she realizes it is not at all the same as her overbearing brothers, but she is determined not to give up the independence she has fought hard for. Riley isn't stupid though, and she considers that a strong shifter by her side may not be such a bad thing.
A fairly short book, this story offers a full range of reading pleasure and you will absolutely not feel short-changed in any way.
¿Absolutely was sucked into the sultry bayou heat of this story!!¿
