Book 1: Caedmon Wolves series
Wolf-Shifter Paranormal Romance

Tamara would risk her life to gain freedom. She's finally built up the courage to escape from a world of abuse by the hands of the man who promised her the world. One night she makes a break for it, but her plans backfire. She begins to believe that she was never meant to be happy. When all hope of freedom fades, she stumbles across a wolf that brings her to safety. She learns to trust the wolf, but has yet to trust the man.

Devin, potential future leader of the Caedmon Pack, returns to the foothills of his Virginia home after five long years as a lone wolf. Rivals within the circle challenge him and threaten to strip him of his true birthright. Being bound to lead the pack was not something Devin had planned for his life, but letting his people fall prey to turmoil under the rule of his cousin Darius is out of the question. The night of Devin's rise to Alpha leader is approaching. Despite opposition, he's gained an impressive following. That is until he brings a human among the pack.

Tamara can't deny the attraction she feels toward Devin. The Alpha leader-to-be simply cannot resist Tamara's lure. When they are together, their tribulations take the backburner. Their desire for one another grows as they consummate their passion in wolf's haven. Will Devin forfeit the most coveted position within the Caedmon Pack to bond with his chosen mate? Can Tamara trust Devin with her mind, heart, body, and soul or will the memories of her abuse dissuade her from being bound to the wolf?

    Good story, quick and easy read. Although both Devin and Tamara's
    Storyline only could have elaborated more with regards to their lives.
    I felt it gave the reader only a small glimpse into their lives before they me
    each other. The supporting characters were great.  Overall, I found the book to
    be an excellent story with love and laughter so I rated it a 5 star.

    A great start to the series although short.  Tamara and Devin have a lot of trust issues.  He realizes almost from the moment that they meet that she is his mate.  She trusts the his wolf more than the man.  As Tamara works through her issues and the life she left behind, Devin prepares to return to the pack he left and start a new life as Alpha.  As I said, a good start to the series.  Definitely makes me want to book 2.

    It was a sweet story and a quick easy read.

    "Wolf's Haven" is based around Tamara, who is escaping an abusive relationship. She meets a wolf Devin sexy hot who helps her to safety. 

    Wolf's Haven needed more conflict. The action scene(s) was/were way to quick for my liking. Elisa who is Devin's half-sister warned Tamara to be careful, but be careful of what and why; nothing happened. Maybe its a foreshadow for the other books. At this point I was hoping something would happen. 
    The book needed to be longer. Everything happened in such a short time frame. Lots of potentially story lines in book, but compacting them left the story feeling like it was lacking. 

    It was a nice quick sweet romantic read, but I felt like the story need more. Maybe more happens in the rest of the series.

    good read but its very rushed. I had a hard time connecting with Tamara because she jumps from an abusive relationship to the relationship with Devin. 
    would have enjoyed it more if it had not been so rushed and had more time to get to know the characters and let them build a relationship. not interested in following the series

    3.5 stars
    I liked this book. Tamara definitely deserves happiness and so does Devin. I love the fact that his father realizes his mistake – definitely too late, but he does and rectifies them as much as possible. These two are a cute couple. I just think they had it too easy. I don’t think after everything she’s been through, she would be willing to trust another male, especially one as Alpha as Devin.

    Second Chances

    Tamara is involved in an abusive relationship and is looking for a way out. All of her attempts have failed, but this particular night, she has a great plan. Just as things are getting started, something goes wrong. Frantically thinking, she jumps from a window to her escape. While dragging herself to safety, she comes face to face with an even bigger problem. Will she get the freedom she's worked so hard to achieve?

    This was my first read by Ambrielle Kirk. This was different. I normally wouldn't have read anything of this genre. I was drawn in from the beginning by Tamara. Her character is one we see in everyday life. Even though I felt a few scenes were rushed, I found myself rooting for Tamara. Overall, “Wolf's Haven” was a pretty good read. I would highly recommend to those who are into paranormal romance.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this particular shifter book. Ever

    I was pleasantly surprised by this particular shifter book. Everything about this book was enjoyable for a lot of reasons mainly though because the characters were believable and real. The Wolf's Haven is truly that a haven for Tamara. Here's why I believe this:

    Tamara wants desperately to get out of her abusive relationship with Brad. Brad is nothing more than a liar and thief trying to make Tamara be a part of his plans. Tamara knows that she needs to get away from Brad no matter the cost or what she has to do. Tamara plans for her escape from Brad and his thievery as well. She makes her bid for escape in the process gains a sprained ankle. She needs to escape now yet her sprained ankle is preventing this from happening. Until a wolf finds her and helps her escape from the past. The wolf has incredible emerald green eyes that give Tamara a sense of safety she's never felt before. They make their escape together. The wolf is actually a man named Devin Caedmon, a lone wolf for the past five years, returning home to prevent his cousin from becoming the new Alpha of Caedmon Pack. Devin realizes that just being around Tamara changes his outlook on life and sees the past in a new light. Devin doesn't want the leadership role yet doesn't see how he can avoid it either. Will Tamara trust Devin? Can Tamara accept Devin for who he is? What does the future hold for Caedmon Pack? What changes must Devin and Tamara make? Your answers await you in Wolf's Haven.

    Tamara is a woman who is looking for a way of escape from an abu

    Tamara is a woman who is looking for a way of escape from an abusive relationship with her fiance, Brad. Brad, a local thug, and his crew solicited (more like threatened) Tamara’s assistance to commit a burglary at a local museum. Having had enough of Brad, his abusive ways, and their toxic relationship, Tamara solicits the help of a local counselor, Selene, to help her make her escape. Together, Selene and Tamara plot of course of action that will allow Tamara to stop the burglary and slip away from Brad forever. But first, she has to act as if she is going to go through with her part of the crime.

    Upon arriving at the museum, Tamara is dispatched to go inside the museum, turn off the security alarm, and open the door for Brad and crew. Hopeful that she will be able to slip away to call the police to stop the robbery, Tamara’s plans are thwarted when Brad demands that she assist in the pillaging effort. Scrambling for what to do next, Tamara hies away to one of the upstairs offices and calls the police. Her plan is to quietly make her escape while the crew is being apprehended. Unfortunately, she is on the third story and cannot make her way out of the building before she hears the police sirens. Tamara is stuck; she can’t get out of the building and she can’t hide. Moving toward the window, Tamara considers her options: jump and plunge to her possible death or be sentenced to a jail term along with Brad, et al.

    Settling, Tamara makes her choice. Jump! She lands hard and hurts her ankle but manages to make it to the relative seclusion of nearby bushes. Now Tamara is really stuck because she realizes that there absolutely no way from her to escape from the museum which is surrounded by a 12ft fence. As she ponders her dismal fate, Tamara hears growling in the bush beside her. She turns and comes face to face…er…face to snout with a huge wolf with brilliant emerald eyes. Tamara’s fate plummets from dismal to fatal. She sees her death in the face of the wolf. But fate has different plans for Tamara when the wolf turns into her savior. Fearing that she has lost her mind, Tamara “hears” the wolf tell her to “Hold on”. She slides on his back, grabs onto to his fur, and he plunges them both over the fence.

    The wolf delivers Tamara to a forest and to safety. He’s her hero who also happens to be much more than just a wolf.

    This was a solid introduction into the world of the Caedmon Wolves. In it we see a disenfranchised hero gain acceptance and an abused woman find love. Tamara and Devin were interesting characters and I liked the overall byplay between them. Although this story was an interracial romance (IR), Ms. Kirk did not make race the emphasis of the story. So many IR’s place a heavy emphasis on race that it distills the impact of the actual story. However, it was nice to see one that focused on the story with only minute references to the race of the characters.

    I would have liked to see more conflict in the story. Devin and Darius fought quickly, Darius submitted, and then it was over. Elisa warned Tamara to be careful but there was no indication as to why. At some point I thought that Darius’ mate would try to harm Tamara in some way but she did not. My assumption (at least I hope) is that the warning was general and will play out in later books in the series.

    Overall, I enjoyed the story. It was a sweet story and a quick and easy read.

    Is it just me?

    Am i the only person that thinks Tamara is incapable of reponding corectly to sexual situations? Darius was right; Tamara is a whore! The way she talks makes it seem like she is some sort of broken sex robot! On top of that, she is supposed to be more submisive given the fact that she has been living with an abusive man for a while, so i am very confused about how Tamara should be acting toward Devin, a very masculine, very intimidating person when need be.

    Devin, on the other hand, makes me think of someone wo hasn't been in the presence of modern society for ages now. Which i am definately not opposing. The way Devin talks is so sinfully sexy, i am confident that if he were to be in a movie, ( not likely given by the amount of pages) I would have to leave the theatre and relieve myself in the bathroom.

    Again, i am not sure if this is just me because obviously the guys are going to be in favor of Tamara and the girls are most likely going to side with me. I just wanted to get this out before I forget to. Please comment back if you have thoughts, opposing or non. Thanks.

    This is the first book I've read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I read some reviews before reading this book and I was a little apprehensive but I ended up Loving this story. Very likable characters and the story which entailed some twists that gave the whole nothing-is-what-it-seems aspect a real lift to the plot. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
