Overview

There is a balm in Gilead, to heal the wounded soul…

Jazz Phillips is on the run, fleeing from a fate most females in her pack accept as their lot in life; an arranged mating, something Jazz thought wasn't in her future as the Alpha's daughter and only child. She doesn't want to be the next Alpha's Mate. She doesn't want to be anyone's mate. She likes her life just the way it is until she finds herself stranded in the mountain town of Gilead, home to a small and close knit pack of wolvers. Once there, she begins to question her life as it was and begins to wonder about what it could be, especially in the arms of the wolver the people call Doc.
Doc Goodman claims to have settled in Gilead because he saw a need for his services, but in fact, he's a runaway, too. He's rejected his wolver heritage and the warring politics that stripped him of everything he loved most. He's biding his time, waiting to die, until he meets the blue haired, foul mouthed beauty who shows him there are still things worth living for and the most important of them are worth fighting for.

    I'm a big fan of this independent author, her writing style and worlds she creates just seem to click for me. This was a great addition to her Wolvers series and I really enjoyed reading it. However, like another reviewer posted, this completely works as a stand alone. In fact all of the ones in this series could be read independently from one another. 
    I must confess I didn't think I was going to like Jazz in the very beginning. She just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I found her a little arrogant, cocky and she came off as more of a teenager than a woman in her later 20's. I also didn't know what to make of Griz as well, he was so closed off put off such vibs of leave me alone and was so rough around the edges. I kept with it though, because this author has yet to let me down, and before I knew it I was reading well past my bedtime and needed to force myself to put the Nook down for the night. Jazz still isn't my favorite of the female leads this author has written, but I really grew to respect her and could understand where she was coming from. It think she was a great match for her Griz and I hope to see them again in future books in this series.
    The supporting cast of characters was great and full of all kinds of people you would normally find in small town life. Gilead is a charming community and it is no wonder Jazz became so attached to it. The story moved at a good pace and had several high drama arcs before reaching the H.E.A for these two. It was a great ride, thank you!

    Although all of the Wolver novels are tied together in a series,

    Although all of the Wolver novels are tied together in a series, and rightfully so, I love the fact that each book has a completely unique story.  Each is brilliant in its own right, but this one is my favourite so far.  It’s more intense than its predecessors.  At the same time, it still has the romance and heartfelt feelings that come so naturally to Rhoades.

    With this novel Rhoades uses her phenomenal storytelling skills to turn a backwater town into a place where you want to go live.  I feel like I was there in person rather than just reading about it.  She evokes emotions in the reader in a way that is rarely seen.  In less than a chapter I went from sitting on the edge of my seat scared, to crying, to laughing out loud.  It was brilliant.  

    Rhoades goes much more in depth regarding what being a Wolver means.  She also shows the difference between the different types of packs and of Wolvers.  Not only does this immerse you further and further into this phenomenal world, but it also brings you closer to the character.  You really get to understand who these people are, where they come from, and where they’re going.  Not only that, but the characters are fundamentally well developed as individuals as well.  I appreciate the fact that although not everyone is a main character, no one is unimportant.  The sense of acceptance and love between the characters is beyond words.

    With all of the building that Rhoades has done on Wolver culture and practices, it definitely leaves me wondering what she has planned for the next instalment in the series.  Since these books keep getting better and better, I can’t wait!  

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!!

    The cover definitely says Jazz :) and the wolf gets my attention :)

    I’m loving this series even more with each book.  I bought this last year and finally have read it.  This story is about the Doctor of the Goodman brothers and Jazz :)  Jazz is fierce, and she starts the book as an island who has to fight for everything.  She has no idea that some Wolver packs operate different than her father’s pack.  It is an awesome journey learning about Jazz and seeing her grow and change.  She is such a fierce alpha female, but she is also awesome solving problems.  Then there is Doc who cares, but doesn’t want to get too involved.  He is so growly that he is always compared to a bear by Jazz which I find very amusing.  I definitely laughed, fumed, and cried with the characters.  There are so many awesome characters in this series and so many possibilities for more books :)

    Jackie does a great job with her details and descriptions to get you sucked into the lives of the characters.  Her writing style is easy to read and relate.  She is really nice too :)  I’m going to have to look into her Guardians of the Race series in the future :)

    I highly recommend this series to my wolf lovin’ shifter book fiends out there.  I have already bought the next 2 books in this series which I’m off to read the next one now.  :)

    So much love, knowledge, and wisdom

    Romance rather paranormal or mortal, falling in love is a wonderful, overwhelming feeling. This was a teaching and learning affair. Wisdom of the old passed down to the young.

    The Alpha's Daughter is a well-written paranormal romance with just the right combination love romance, trouble and sass, with a sprinkling of well-meaning lovable neighbors thrown in. Jacqueline Rhoades does a excellent job of allowing the friendship of Jazz and Doc unfold turning into love as the story progresses. Unlike the previous two books in this series, this one I found myself the most emotional over. My emotions ran the gambit from tears of laughter to tears of sorrow. I love the sparring between Jazz and Doc. Two equally stubborn people the perfect match for each other. The “bumping uglies” parts were definitely steamy. However, it was the interactions between all the characters that I truly loved. Each one had a special little story and, thankfully, the author took the time to introduce all of them without burying me in the boring details. Although, I would have loved to have found out the twins secret.
     
    I’m actually very sad to see this series end. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of each book. Ms. Rhoades has created a wonderful paranormal romance series that anyone who likes shifters will enjoy. Each book in this series touches on the MC from all the other books but each book works well as a stand-alone although I suggest reading them all.
     
    I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

    Alpha¿s Daughter by Jacqueline Rhoades Review by Georgianna Sim

    Alpha’s Daughter by Jacqueline Rhoades
    Review by Georgianna Simpson

    Alpha’s Daughter is book three of the “Wolver” series. All the books in this series are written as stand- alone, but I always love having the background and history inherent in reading a series start to finish. So if you haven’t read this series, you may want to pick them up.
    This story begins with Jasmine “Jazz” Phillips traveling a lonely road in the Arkansas Mountains at night on her motorcycle, remembering the turn of events that led her here.
    Jazz is the only child of Alpha wolver Bronson Phillips, a hard, power hungry, brutal man. He runs his pack in a way that promotes the more animalistic traits. Their businesses are mostly criminal and drug related, good money – but bad.
    Jazz recently had a visit by the mysterious Mr. Begley, who informed her that her father was going to demand she mate the next powerful alpha he found to take over his pack. He then outlined a route for her to take to a pack where she could seek sanctuary in the Appalachian Mountains. She thought this would just not happen and almost threw the napkin with the route away – but didn’t. When a week later her father demanded that she mate for the good of his pack, she tried to protest, but was quickly beaten into submission for her efforts. Pretty much a prisoner in her own home, Jazz decided it would be better to escape than live a life she’d watched her mother live, abused and used as a tool for her mate.
    This is a lot of background, but I’ve put it here all at once so you can get the feel for the life Jazz has come from…the book is well written with the background coming in interspersed with other events to keep the story informative, but incredibly entertaining.
    The story comes to life when as Jazz stops for a rest in the town of Gilead, where she’s to meet a wolver by the name of Goodman who will assist her on her way; she’s attacked by three rogues at the bar/café where she stops. Trained to fight since a child, by “Uncle Moose”, she’s doing pretty well when a huge, hairy giant of wolver comes to her rescue.
    Michael “Doc” Goodman is a doctor, an actual MD specializing in wolver medicine as well as human, who has left his old life behind to find some peace in helping the poor but wonderful pack in Gilead. The sparks and lightning that begins to fly when these two meet is wonderful to say the least. The great dialog that Ms. Rhoades puts into this tale is enthralling and exciting. I love great arguments and fun dialog and this book is simply filled with great conversations as well as some truly steamy love scenes!
    Watching Jazz and Grizz (Jazz’s nickname for him) dance around each other and the situations that arise is not only entertaining, it’s compelling. This is a page-turner. So hard to put down, I just had to see what was going to happen. I fell in love with the pack in Gilead, wonderful people so well written you feel you have known them forever and they actually become your friends. Of the three books, so far, in this series; Alpha’s Daughter is definitely my favorite. I loved all of them, but this one is so rich in emotion, humor and life it’s in my top three books ever! And that’s a pretty big statement for me. I’m not going to do anymore spoilers, you just have to read and feel this wonderful story for yourself! Do yourself a favor, allow enough time for a great read and curl up with this one! Enjoy, I did!
