Overview

USA TODAY recommended paranormal romance
Book 1 in The MacKellen Alphas Series

ONE LOOK WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOREVER

Lingerie designer Alicia Clarkson just had to open her stupid mouth. Now thanks to trying to defend a fellow pack mate, Alicia’s been blindfolded, tied up, and carted off to the new alpha of the Oregon pack—Gavin MacKellen.

However, the blindfold doesn’t come off so soon as Gavin reveals he’s searching for a mate. But Alicia’s curiosity gets fired up when Gavin refuses to reveal his face to her. Just what happened to him? He talks to her from shadowy corners and behind closed doors. The man is as elusive as a squirrely fox. But Alicia doesn’t play games and the quiet spoken, hoarse-voiced alpha doesn’t stand a chance against her. They settle on an agreement, thirty days for them to get to know each other because that’s the only way this cowboy alpha will have it.

Gavin MacKellen needs a mate. But he knows no good woman would ever want to look at his face after the incident he suffered. After one look at Alicia Clarkson all his plans fly out the window. The woman’s beauty has stunned him damn near speechless. She torments his thoughts and Gavin finds himself yearning to know everything about her. As a relationship forms and love threatens to grow between them, Gavin struggles to cope with his physical appearance in the face of the beautiful Alicia. Will she be the one to stand in the face of a monster and accept him or will she turn her back on him?

[Warning: The Loneliest Alpha is a 100,000 word beauty and the beast love story.]

Editorial Reviews

Reviewing Vixens
These two characters are perfect for one another. The author has done a marvelous job of creating a push and pull effect between these two. That and the crises affecting Gavin’s pack, the danger that appears to be pointed right at Alicia and the fact they can’t help be gravitate to o
The Reading Cafe - Sandy NA
THE LONELIEST ALPHA is a fast paced, and interesting spin on the Beauty and the Beast storyline phenomenon. This is a story of suspense and mystery, love and hate, betrayal and heartbreak, friends and family.

    ** i have seen some say it is very beauty and the beast like, i found it reminding me very much of the phantom of the opera, either way, i love this book! **

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A TRULY GREAT READ!




    wow, T.A. really handed me my heart with this one! such a great book. it is not often that a book can make me cry, and i bawled like a baby reading this book.
    great book 1 in a new series, and so many more characters to drool over until we get their stories.
    GAVIN, wow, gavin. i'm almost speechless when it comes to him and his story. i don't think any of the characters t.a. has given us before, touched my heart the way he did, and that is saying alot, because i am a huge fan of t.a. and her many men ;)
    such a great story that absolutely had me at page 1 until the very end, this was one i absolutely could not put down, and read all in one sitting because i just had to know what happens.
    there are a few mentions of some of the kategan characters, BUT you don't have to have read that series to fall in line with this one, although, i highly recommend them, because they are awesome books ;)




    I TRULY FEEL BEYOND LUCKY THAT I GOT TO BETA THIS STORY FOR T.A., AND THAT I HAVE IT LOCKED AWAY IN MY HEART, REALLY AND TRULY LOVE IT!

    Fabulous book

    This is a great start spinoff series. You can't help but love Gavin & Alicia. It was hott & sexy to boot. What's great about it is that Ms Grey did an excellent job writing it so you feel whatever emotion the characters are feeling. Just like Alicia I started to fall for Gavin before she saw his face. Along with frustration & determination to see it as well. Which in her trying was pretty damn funny. I felt compassion for Gavin because he just wanted someone to love & to love him for himself & not feel pity for him. He was lonely & you felt that & you hurt for him. Your emotions are all over the place as you read this book. Which is a good thing. For me anyways I love connecting to a story that way it makes it a better read. The sub-characters as great, sarcastic, funny, & sexy. I can't wait for book 2. Winter better hurry up & get here.

    I've read a few Beauty and the Beast type romances, but can't remember reading one that was a paranormal.

    I had to admire Alicia's tenacity as she dogged Gavin for a chance to see his face, and I applauded Gavin for holding out as long as he did. The revealing moment was timed just right as both were as ready as possible for it to happen. And even when it did, the severity of his scars wasn't romanticized at all. The harm done to Gavin was harsh, and Ms. Grey did a fantastic job of describing the from Alicia's POV.

    Though Gavin's choosing a mate and her unconditional acceptance of him was the main focus of this story, the side story was amazing to follow as well. Betrayal, shocking revelations, and desperation paved the way for a well-earned happily-ever-after for Gavin and Alicia. The adversity they faced and the obstacles they overcame reinforced the love that had taken grown between them.

    Suspense and romance are always a great combination, especially when both are equally present in the story. Adding a healthy dose of paranormal to that kind of story created a world I was only too happy to be a part of. After all, who doesn't love a good Beauty and the Beast story? I know I do.

    This is the first book I've read by T.A.Grey and as soon as I finished it, I rushed right to my computer to order the next book in the series. I was disappointed that it wasn't out yet but I know a whole series of Kategan Alphas is available and I can't wait to start on it. If it's only 1/2 as good as this book was I'll be satisfied. If it's just as good I'll be thrilled. I have a new favorite author in T.A.Grey!!

    Can't wait for the next in the series to become available.

    The story starts out a little slow, but picks up speed and interest quickly. Hero's don't have to be perfect and drop dead gorgeous to win your heart. I hope they hurry with the second book. I really like these characters.

    HOT HOT HOT

    Great start to what looks like a very promising, interesting and sexy series! A slight similarity to Beauty and the Beast, nice to read a book where the hero/alpha isn't GQ beautiful, where he's vulnerable but tough, where the woman does the chasing....literally! This book made me laugh, it was great. Plus it was super HOT! I'll write it now, if you don't enjoy reading erotic scenes, stay away from this book as there are quite a few, don't read it only to criticize it because of the erotic portion of it. The author did a great job with all the scenes....a definite page turner!

    FYI: I gave it four stars because there were a few grammatical errors but if not for those it would have received 5!
