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 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.
Selene is thrust into the aftermath of Caedmon pack rivalry when determination to help a friend leads her to the foothills of the Virginia mountains. She doesn't anticipate that her generosity would earn her a place behind bars and at the mercy of man who saves her from a sentence worse than death. Soon she discovers that Nick is far from ordinary. Under the façade of his commitment to protect her from evil hides a secret that shatters her faith in him.
Nick knew his life would be forever changed when Devin, the new Caedmon leader, honors him with the title of Second-in-Command. With this responsibility, he's introduced to a web of pack politics and threats. Darius, the banished wolf who lost the most coveted title within the pack, turns out to be a sore loser, and he demands either complete dominance or total destruction. Someone must stop him before he tears down the unity that has held the pack together for decades.
In the midst of it all, he meets a tempting brazen beauty. Selene is not just any woman, and the wolf inside reminds Nick of this fact every time she's in his presence. She awakens raging passion within him, and he desires her like no other. Nick's past misfortunes has taught him many things. For one...never trust a woman with his heart.
True love awaits in the path of danger, but will Selene and Nick let the chaos destroy their bond?
Jayson Truman is captivated by his boss's daughter. He finds himself fantasizing about the many ways he'd like to have his way with Arianna Klein. Despite Mr. Klein's strong connections to the Caedmon community, he and Jayson have never seen eye to eye on any matter. Lusting after his daughter only adds fuel to the flames. Their long-standing business relationship begins to unravel. Secrets are exposed, and loyalty is tested. Jayson is warned to stay away from Arianna...
Cutting family ties seems like Arianna's only recourse to regaining control of her life. Yet, steering clear of her father is easier said than done, especially when she holds the key to his business's success...or failure. And as if her life weren't dictated enough by men with oversized egos, add Jayson to the equation and his many attempts to lay claim to her. If he thinks she's going to swoon at his feet like a sex crazed maniac, he's got another thing coming. But Arianna is not the only one with a key. Jayson may very well be the pawn she needs to get her out of the mess that her father has built.
Jayson will put his life on the line for Arianna, but will he gain her love and acceptance in return?

Splendid! A must read for any lover of shifter paranormal genre Personally, I have always been a fan of Ambrielle Kirk’s. Her books tend to be spicy with a kick of sweet to make the reading more fun. She is well known for her sense of adventure with her plots and characters. So when I was given the chance to read the Caedmon series books one through three, I jumped on it faster than my morning latte with extra foam. (To be fair, I have previously read the first novel as a free offering a few weeks ago and loved it.) Since this was a three book omnibus, I’m going to do a mini dissection of the books and the series as a whole thus far. So forgive me in advance if I’m a bit wordy. The first book, Caedmon Wolves, has the hero and heroine, Devin and Tamara, meeting at a gallery after dark. The heroine is a thief, due to an abusive fiancé and bad circumstances. She had made plans with the aid of a counselor to escape the situation the night of the heist, but finds herself trapped with no way to escape due to a twelve foot fence and an ankle injury. She is saved by of all things, a wolf with emerald eyes. But this is no ordinary wolf, this a man who has found his mate, even if he believes he is not ready for the challenge. The couple are striking together, and there is an immediate and obsessive type of protectiveness of each other. There are typical elements in the read, boy meets girl, girl is in need of saving, etc. But the take on those concepts is very fresh and erotic. But the re-read of part one was even better this time, I think mainly because I was able to jump immediately into book two, Wolf’s Promise. This story takes two characters from the first book, Nick and Selene, and gives them a chance at love. Remember the counselor mentioned in book one? Well, Selene is the social worker that set up an opportunity for Tamara to run away from her abusive fiancé. Nick is the friend Devin chose as his second in command. When Selene gets a shady phone call from Tamara in the first tale, she can’t leave well enough alone and rides out with only a map and her gut instincts to go to the last place she knew Tamara to be at. The caregiver in her won’t allow her to use her vacation time to take an actual vacation. (That left me with a lingering thought. Would I be willing to use my coveted two weeks holiday to check on a person that I don’t even really know? Dare I be honest? Probably not. Don’t judge me, at least I’ll admit it out loud just how selfish I can be.) But in this case, Selene’s selfless nature earns her a car accident in the backwoods of Virginia in Caedmon territory, stay in a dungeon and a near forced breeding. But it also earns her Nick, a wary man and wolf, with unknown hang-ups and baggage along with eternal love. Just as well written as the first, and with a poignancy that deliberately tugs the heartstrings, this book was a splendid follow up! Wolf’s Touch is the third book in the series and was almost as good as the first two. The only reason I say that is because the characters involved were mostly unknowns, so I didn’t get the chance to care for them as much before starting, though it mattered very little by chapter two. Our hero, Jayson, was given a not so honorable mention in book two for being tardy for the party (really, a council meeting, but I couldn’t resist the reference). But his intended, Arianna doesn’t want to have a mate. In fact, she doesn’t want to believe she has one, or should I say pretends she doesn’t. The two of them are a fiery couple in bed and out of it. Actually, they have been on and off again lovers for years, and that only makes the romance aspects even better. Jayson and her father have a joint business venture, inherited son to son over the years, but the men really despise working together. Both of them want out, but at what cost? Arianna cares for Jayson, but she doesn’t realize just how much until she is forced to sacrifice her right to choose the roads she will walk in life. This is a fluid series that is well thought out, with a simplified structure and tiny twists in plot that leave you wondering where the time went after reading. I personally read the entire omnibus from start to finish overnight as the volume wasn’t burdensomely large, but peppered with enough meat to complete the tale and enough spice to make you wish for more. The interracial aspects are present, but not obnoxious and the couples never seem to even truly notice their physical differences. The stories can stand alone, which is awesome, as I personally hate to be coerced into serials. On the whole? Splendid! I only noticed two errors in the entire volume. But they were minimal afterthoughts as I was so wrapped into the story. This is a must read for any lover of shifter paranormal genre in general and a great start for those who haven’t jumped on that particular bandwagon yet, but want to try one on for size. And to boot, there is a fourth book that I will be certain to pick up. Brava Ms. Kirk! -Reviewed by Jennifer
Caedmon Wolves Volume II (Books 4-6 Boxed Set) by Ambrielle Kirk Caedmon Wolves Volume II is a great bundle. I valued that the books are abundant with Caedmon history. It made the series more credible and powerful. I appreciated getting to read three stories back-to-back verses having to get the next book. This volume contains books 4-6. Wolf’s Desire (book 4) Retired Bodyguard and Caedmon council member, Aiden, is hired to protect Keira Ellis. He will do anything to protect her. Many interesting mysterious things happen that keep this story exciting. Wolf’s Strength (book 5) Blake DeLuca of the Caedmon Pack and Naomi Valentine of the Arnou Pack are fated mates belonging to rival packs. Both Blake and Naomi are strong characters; Blake being one of six members on the Caedmon Council and Naomi being one of Arnous Elite. They are both loyal and have duties to protect their factions. Wolf’s Honor (book 6) Connor Maxim is investigating the death of some fellow shifters. He meets, criminal Antonia Trudeau, his mate. This was an interesting story with great controversy. The Caedmon Wolves Series has a bit of everything: great characters, conflict, forbidden love, power struggles, deception, and more. It is a wonderful read for any paranormal romance lover.

Caedmon Wolves: Volume 1 by Ambrielle Kirk gathers together the first 3 books in the series. Wolf's Haven (Book One) - Tamara's fiance, Brad abuses her and forces her to join him on burglary jobs. When she finally gets the chance to run from him she is saved by a wolf. Unknown to her the wolf is actually a shape shifter named Devin. The cast of characters are believable, impressive and engaging. The story has secrets untold, jealous pack members, intense passion, heart-wrenching moments, and romance. It's a good story. Would've been better had it been longer though. Still it's a 4 star book. Wolf's Promise (Book Two) - Wolf shifter Nick has been burned by love in the past and doesn't trust women because of it. However while caged by an enemy he meets fell captive Selene and finds himself desiring her like no other before her. I loved the chemistry between these two. It's explosive hot. The characters are strong, engaging and believable. The story is intense, sensual, exciting and well written. It's a good story. Another 4 STARS Wolf's Touch (Book Three) - Wolf shifter Jayson Truman has found his mate in his boss’s daughter, Arianna Klein. But his boss forbids him from going any where near her. So what's a wolf to do? Pursue and claim his mate of course at all costs. I loved how stubborn and driven Jayson and Arianna are. They make for an awesome, hot and believable couple. The story is well written with just the right amount of obstacles to over come. Good book. 4 Stars Over all this is a great series and I highly recommend it. ***Gifted ARC copy*** L.
Caedmon Wolves (Volume One), Amber Ella Monroe, Ambrielle Kirk Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal, Romance. Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews This volume contains three books: Wolf's Haven, Wolf's Promise, and Wolf's Touch. The series has 5 titles available with 1 coming soon. I enjoyed this read, but didn’t really feel the stories had enough content and detail for me. I need a stronger plot and these are really light and simple romances, a how a wolf shifter meets his mate, with a bot of wolf pack politics thrown in. I needed a bit more excitement, a bit more plot and adventure to keep me engrossed. The characters are good, well drawn and feel real, and in a more in-depth novel I’d have enjoyed them. If you’re looking for a gentle shifter romance, one that's easy to follow with a bit of heat added for spice then this is perfect. for me it was just a bit too light and fluffy. that’s the way it works – what suits some won’t be right for others. I don’t enjoy Terry Pratchett, J K Rowling and Tolkien (gasp!!) but millions do Smile and its what gives us books to suit all tastes. Stars: Two, a book that’s great for some readers but just didn’t work for me. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers.
This is a new author for me. I have been looking at this series for a while and then this bundle came out with the first three books in series. I love shifter books and this series is very good. You have the alpha males, females with kick-ass attitude,great sex scenes and mystery surrounding the packs. I read all 5 books in this series in a week. don't pass up this series or author .
