Overview

An ancient evil is stalking the twin alpha rulers of the werefolk and the half-were woman who is destined to be their mate¿if she lives long enough.

First in the Tales of the Were.

Fulfilling her mother¿s dying wish, Allie climbs a wooded hill just before midnight on Samhain¿All Hallow¿s Eve. At the top, she finds an overgrown, magical stone circle, and her destiny. Waiting for her there are twin alpha werewolves who will be her sworn protectors, her mentors¿and the loves of her life. If she lives long enough.

Overprotective is just one word to describe Rafe and Tim. Sexy is most definitely another. But their newfound love and all their skills¿both mundane and magical¿will be tested by an ancient evil. A hostile human mage and a misguided vampire hunt them, servants to secret plans of the ancient Venifucus, a society dedicated to destroying women like Allie.

They will earn unlikely allies, including a half-fey knight imprisoned Underhill for centuries. But will it be enough to battle the evil that stalks them? Will Allie¿s men be strong enough to let her aid them in her own defense? Only together can were, fey and vampire defeat this latest threat and learn that love does truly conquer all.

Warning, this title contains explicit sex and ménage a trois.

Chapter One

We work up an appetite when we run in our fur." The deep voice at Allie's ear made her jump, though she instantly recognized Rafe's warm presence behind her. Still buttoning his shirt, he sniffed appreciatively at the food.

A moment later he was joined by Tim, whose eyes snapped fire as he looked down at Allie. Surprisingly, he seemed less angry than he'd been before and had a few scratches on his face that needed tending. She couldn't draw her eyes away from the drying blood on his cheek and before she realized quite what she was doing, she'd taken Tim by the hand and was leading him down the hall toward the small bathroom.

"Where are we going?" Tim's voice was tinged with a surprising humor she hadn't yet seen in him.

"You're hurt."

She'd been up all night and perhaps that's why she thought it should be obvious to him that if he were hurt, she would care for his injuries. It seemed perfectly logical in her tired mind, though later she would admit she hadn't been thinking clearly from the moment she saw the twins in that sacred circle the night before.

Tim tugged on her hand, slowing their progress. "I heal faster than a human. You don't have to tend me."

She looked at him as if he were crazy. "You don't want a scar do you? Or an infection? Those scratches have dirt in them, Tim."

His eyes flared as he searched her face. "So you can tell us apart. Why then are you being nice to me? I've haven't been very nice to you so far, as my brother pointed out earlier." He fingered the drying blood on his face and suddenly Allie realized the brothers had come to blows over her. The very idea caused her heart to clench in anguish and wetness to gather behind her eyes. She never wanted to come between them . . . at least not in a bad way.

"You're hurt," she repeated stubbornly, tugging him into the small bathroom. "I don't like to see anyone suffer needlessly." She closed the lid on the toilet and pointed. "Sit."

Tim actually laughed. "I'm a wolf, not a dog," he protested, but sat anyway, his gaze tracking her around the tiny room as she gathered a small washcloth and some bandages.

She ran warm water onto the small cloth and began gently bathing the long scratches on his angular face. The angry gouges started at his left temple and went down all the way to the corner of his mouth. Dirty, the nasty gashes were crusted already and had bits of what looked like tree bark and moss mixed in with the dried blood.

Tim didn't complain as she scrubbed gently at the mess on his face, and watched her every movement. Hesitating only briefly, she worked towards his firm lips, using the fingers of one hand to stretch his skin and the other to cleanse it so she could cause him the least amount of pain and still be thorough. The heat of his gaze and the warm, firm feel of his lips against her fingers began to distract her from her task.

"I haven't been very nice to you since we met, Allesandra, and I'm sorry."

Rocking back on her heels, she was more surprised by his soft tone than even his words. His expression was tender but his eyes lit with a secret fire as he took one of her small hands in his and brought it back to his mouth. Gallantly, he placed a warm kiss in the center of her palm and closing her fingers around it.

Allie shook her head. She was operating on too little sleep and everything had a fuzzy edge, but she kind of thought this man would muddle her senses no matter what. She had to clear her throat before she could talk at all.

"You don't have to apologize. I think I might understand a bit of what you were feeling. I know I've been overwhelmed more than a few times in the last few hours and have resented it." She resumed her work. Once again she had to place her fingers on his lips, but this time, he sucked them inside his mouth, swirling his tongue over her digits as she gasped.

"So you think you've got me all figured out, hmm?" His eyes sparkled as he held her wrist, placing little nibbling kisses on her fingers and knuckles.

"I didn't say that." She squirmed a little as he sucked on her thumb, letting her go with a wet popping sound as he moved up to her wrist, and then higher to the sensitive valley of her elbow.

"I need to put some ointment on your scratches, Tim."

"In a minute."

You need to be ready for menage in detail to get into this book, because if you can, there is a GREAT storyline that develops. It is NOT just were-sex without a story. There is a lot of depth to this book and characters. She has become one of my favorite authors in a very short time for weres. vampires, dragons, magic, and steamy, hot supernatural sex. If you liked this, read the second Tales of the Were, Inferno, and also start the Dragon Knights series with Maiden Flight or the Brotherhood of Blood series with One and Only.

4.5 Stars A Definite Keeper, great start to Tales of the Were by Bianca D'Arc Allesandra or Allie as she is known by those close to her is on the eve of her thirty third birthday. The time has come for Allie to fulfil her mother's dying wish and take her place as a Priestess of the Lady just as her mother had been before her death. Allie has been unaware of this other life as her mother had insisted she grow up protected in the human world until she was old enough to learn the truth. Since her thirteenth birthday Allie has been learning about her heritage and although a little scared of what is to come Allie is ready to accept her destiny. Timothy (Tim) and Rafael (Rafe) are rare among the Werefolk as they are not only twins but they are both Alphas. When the last Priestess was killed she was mated to the reigning twin Alphas who also died in the battle to protect her. Rafe and Tim knew the only way to keep the Werefolk from certain destruction was to fight and take their rightful place as the next Twin Alphas to lead and protect their people. When Allie arrives at the top of the wooded hill she discover a magical stone circle but her and Bettina a close friend of her mother that had been helping her were not alone. Waiting for her there are twin Alphas Tim and Rafe who will be her sworn protectors and her mentors. Tim and Rafe immediately recognise that Allie is more to them than just someone they are to protect, with just one touch Allie is embedded in their wolf. Trouble is coming and just as Allie is accepting her new role and her love for her twin Alphas they will face a danger that could take away everything including their lives. Lords of the Were is a great first book to start this series and I look forward to reading book 2 Inferno and finding out what Ms D'Arc has install for us next

I have read several books by this author. Each book in series gets better. Dante's book is next. Even better. Can't wait for Duncan's.

A 320 page book of a apprentice Lady priestess and the Alpha weretwins who will rule her and all were people. As evil stalks her, the paranormal divide for battle. A narrative story with a lot of explanation, repetition, and stilted dialog. And a lot of three way sex of the BDSM variety. Basically a good story premise, if the author would believe that the readers could remember descriptions and facts from one chapter to the next. Also, wondering if this is a possible script for a porn flick. Worth a read for the good story - skimmed over the repeats.

This book was great. Even if you don't like this book, this is the start of a great series, and I absolutely LOVE this author. She is one of the best fantasy type writers in a really long time. Try her Dragon Knights series if this book didn't/doesn't do it for you. But overall this book was fantastic. Buy it, this is a great werewolf book. Bianca D'arc is amazing.
