I absolutely love it! The Reluctant Alpha is the first book in the brilliant new series, Highland Wolf Clan by A.K. Michaels and it totally rocks! Having previously read Ava's work, I naturally expected it to be good but in the words of Tony The Tiger - It's GRRREAT!!! Ava has dazzled us once again with her amazing talent and incredible skill; and given us another paranormal masterpiece filled with adventure, suspense, intrigue, action, fantasy, magic and romance. The story is exciting, thrilling, riveting, imaginative, humorous, romantic and arousing. The dialogue is smart, intelligent, very well written and flows effortlessly. The characters are fascinating, captivating, intriguing, endearing, engaging and sexy as sin. Wolf shifter Cameron 'Sin' Sinclair has it all - good looks, a bevy of women at his beckoned call, prestige, wealth and his own private jet. He is dangerous, demanding, ruthless and powerful and never shy about taking what he wants. But the one thing he definitely does not want is to return home to the Highlands of Scotland to take his father's place as Alpha of his clan. Nope, never going to happen - not after the way his father treated him growing up. He will NEVER be an alpha. He's too busy managing the multi-billion dollar empire he built and sleeping with a different woman every night. It's a tough job but someone has to do it! So when his estranged father calls and simply orders him to come home, he reluctantly agrees but is determined to refuse his father's demands. His father is unwell and has been asked to step down as Alpha which is fine by him, his brother Grant can become Alpha. Now he can return to his private jet and fly home. Not! Uncle Fearghas in America has a very serious problem and needs help. That now leaves only him to travel to the states to render aid. Well, not just him - he is accompanied by his trusted friends and fellow pack members, Ewan "Jinx" Jenkins, brothers Rory and Logan Dunbar, and Cormac "Mac" Brody; and also along for the adventure are wolf Jacob Stone, security/technology expert and private detective, witch Rebecca, his pilot Marcus and his girl Friday of 20 years, Stracey Hood, by phone of course. Yep, he and his team will get the job done and he can get back to his life of women, whiskey and excess in a flash. Or not! But things don't always go as planned because he certainly never planned on being attracted to the beautiful she-wolf he rescues in the woods. Her name is Chastity and she is by far, the most beautiful creature he has ever seen and for some reason, he cannot get her out of his head. He feels inexplicably drawn to her. Hmmm.....That's a first. What's a wolf to do? Why save the day and the woman, of course. Buckle up my lovelies, get ready for a load of hijinks and another very bumpy ride! Handsome sexy wolves-check! Beautiful sassy women-check! Danger, suspense, murder, intrigue and evil supernatural enemies-check! Heated attraction, romance and angst-you betcha! I can hardly wait for Book Two! Fabulous entertainment and another awesome read from A.K. Michaels!

What a great start to the series!! I loved reading this book and the sex is quite steamy!! I love Ava's books because they put me through my paces emotions wise, and I am very happy I had book 2 already so I could go right to it when I finished this book because yes, there is a cliff-hanger so make sure you get book 2 before you even start this one!! Now I need to get book 3 before I finish book 2!! I definitely recommend this book and you can't beat the price!! You should also try out Ava's other series, I highly recommend them too!!

3.5 Stars This was quite an enjoyable read. It had alot going on but not so much as to confuse the reader. Lots of funny and colorful characters. A interesting storyline, slight cliffhanger but nothing anger inducing. I can't help but feel that Cam's uncle was stupid and selfish. He didn't think of his mnate, child or pack. He was just hellbent on revenge and was so blinded by his rage that he ignored all the warnings that Cam gave him against attacking Dupont alone... Well his stupidity got him gone and very gruesomely. I feel like at his age he should have known better...sighs. He wasn't thinking nor acting like a responsible alpha, though his loss was very sad. I didn't see that coming. It was very confusing whenever someone had a mental thought as they were put in quotation marks as opposed to being written in italics. It made it seem as if that person was talking out loud more often than not. It was very frustrating trying to decipher what was a mental thought and what was spoken out loud. Overall, an engaging enough story to keep the reader interested and invested in continuing with book two. SR

I read every shifter story I come across just loving the idea, and this was one of the best I've read in a very long time with original story line, excitement and more relationships occurring at the same time. I'm disappointed that it was a cliff hanger but still this is one I know I'll read again..

Great read. Couldn't stop. Loved the extra story lines, but pissed off by the huge cliffhanger. Hate that

Like the book, especially for a freebie, but it ends abruptly in a cliffhanger.

Love this book so I'm going to read the series! I also read the dragon series too! Love dragon stories and hers are awesome! If you love hot blooded men who don't share their mates and the paranormal world you'll love her books!

Wow, this is a fun shifter story. The romance and adventure blend in just the right mix. Good thing it's a series since I know there is more to be told. There is a bit of a cliffhanger here so you have to get book 2. Not that I'm complaining about reading more about the Wolf Clan.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Cam's reluctance to his Alpha-ness led to some very interesting scenes. Although I do love the other characters in the book, I didn't like how the story branched off into their stories towards the end. Most of the book was about Cam and his story, and that's what I expected. I really wanted more of that. I found myself wanting to just graze over the parts about the others, although I didn't, just to get back to the main story. I felt like they all should've had their own story instead of taking space in Cam's. Nonetheless, it was a really good book and I can't wait to find out what happens with all of these characters

I Absolutely LOVED this book. It get 4.5 stars from me. The only issues I have with it is the "age" of the younger wolves is rather confusing. THey act and are treated as teenage boys. And I am not too fond of the way the end is very "clouded" with too much going on. I think if Ava had stucl to ONE main pair it would have not only been perfect, but would have opened her up to many more stories. Which leads me into the disappointment that there are not already several more to read by her. This book is wonderfully easy to follow, and almost impossible to put down. I am 100% planning to read the next in the series and everyone after that. In this first Clan book, it was surprisingly delightful. Cam (Cameron) is at odds with his father, and its in a way that is completely believable. And therefore has separated himself from his "pack" and family. Cam has lived his life and become a very successful man in the business world. But as problems in his own pack and that of his uncles arise, he WILL be forced to choose. Can he hold to his decision to not become Alpha? And what will become of his uncles tribe in the US that is under attack? Will he be the Alpha he was born to be, or turn his back on the family, possibly leaving BOTH packs without a leader, and without protection. Then comes Chastity... I LOVE that this is NOT a typical HEA, (NO spoilers) yet will keep you turning pages none the less.

I loved book 1 of this series. I felt so many emotions reading this and I truly have to say I love all these wolves. I am truly looking forward to the next book in the series. Ava K. Michaels did an amazing job on this one.

This is me second series to start by A. K. Michaels, and I can tell you it does not disappoint, in any way. It is part of a series and does not finish in a Happily Ever After, but it is still a very satisfying and enjoyable read. If you love paranormal romance, you will definitely love this.

Ak Michaels is always great at her writing. I know when I get 1 of her books, I'm never disappointed, never want to put it down or for it to end at the same time, & always leaves me wanting more. I love authors like that, that I can never seem to get enough of

This book is well written, smooth flowing and easy to read. The imagery is so vivid you can picture every scene. The characters, their emotions, and the experiences they go through are depicted extremely well. Cam is an Alpha Wolf. Since he didn't want to take over his father's Highland Wolf Clan pack in Scotland, he is a businessman in LA. With one phone call Cam's world is flipped upside down. He not only has to go home, but he has to deal with pack issues. He will soon find himself in a new place, with new people, and a big problem. Will he be able to get the problem solved quickly so he can go back to being a LA businessman? Will he be able to leave his wolf life behind him now? I can't wait for book 2 to see what happens next.

*** Gifted in exchange for an honest review and in conjunction with the release tour on Kats Book Promotions/ Katsindiebookblog.*** I have followed A.K. Michaelssince reading Defender's Blood Alex's Destiny and this author is growing with each book, her imagination is just awesome to Paranormal junkies like myself! Now she has a new series full of Sexy Scottish Shifters! Cameron Sinclair is a successful multi-billionaire business man, he's an Alpha in the boardroom, but he has a secret – he’s also a Wolf. And oh boy did I just drool over Cam - he's his own man, scarred by his fathers treatment he is a reluctant Alpha - happy to use his skills in the business world, but has no intentions of leading a wolf pack and left the pack lands as soon as he was able too. His father summons him - and his mother pleads for him to return home to hear his father out. Cameron returns with his right hand man Jinx, and after hearing his father out heads off to the US, with several of his old pack friends for backup. When he gets to his Uncles pack he realises their troubles are more serious than they thought, can Cameron and his friends save the Pack? There is a twist in this shifter story that gives a new dimension to the wolves, which I really enjoyed and the guys from Scotland have a few decisions to make... Love, Loyalty, Loss this book has it all, and I am waiting with baited breath for the next book!!!

I love this book. Cam is so smart and savvy. Chastity sooo in need of a strong, gallant, and just a little sneaky. Chastity's brother, the alpha, soo in need of a takedown. Cam supplies it all. With a little romance, a little intrigue and a whole lot of wonderful, this book has it all.

The beginning of another great series by the wonderful AK Michaels! Whilst this could have turned into another billionaire/shifter hybrid like so many others, it's a breath of fresh air. I'm not keen on the whole billionaire genre, but I really enjoyed Cam and his packmates! Cam estranged himself from his fathers pack as he didn't want to be the next alpha of his father's pack. He made his own way in the world and now runs his own empire. He is a powerful billionaire and he loves to flaunt it in his fathers face. When he is summoned home, he learns his father is no longer fit to be pack alpha. But Cam can never feel at home in his own pack and decides to pass the reins to his brother. At the same time word is received from a linked pack that Cam's uncle and his pack have been attacked. His uncle needs help to figure out who is attacking them. So Cam and his friends go to America to find out who is attacking his uncle's people. Whilst delving into the murky mystery of who is organising these attacks on the pack, Cam meets Chastity, sister and punchbag of a neighbouring alpha. Cams hackles rise at the treatment she is receiving at the hands of her brother and his cohorts and he is determined to rescue her. Now on tenterhooks waiting for book 2!!!! I have a not to secret crush on Jacob and Fergie...sigh!

One of the great things about reading one of Ava K Michaels books is that she has a way of writing a story so that you feel as if you're actually apart of it. The characters come alive in your own imagination and you can picture the scenery around you as well as feeling all the emotions. This book is no exception, it will grab your attention from page 1 right up until the very last word is read. Adamant he will NOT become the Alpha male, will Cameron change his mind when push comes to shove, will he find a mate and get revenge ????? Get your copy and find out and join the great adventure. Exceptionally well written Excellent start to the new series

Cameron Sinclair is a 150 year old powerful wolf & witch who lives in Scotland. He had a very unhappy childhood because of the way his father - the Alpha - treated him. Cameron swore to his father he would never become the next Alpha and left the pack to go out on his own. He becomes a very successful business man and owns a multi-million dollar business. He rarely goes home but speaks with his mother every Sunday. He hasn't met his mate yet and therefore he just uses women for sexual pleasure. He receives a summons from his father to come home-his mother explains to Cameron why. His Uncle Fearghas, the Alpha of the American clan, needs help and Cameron agrees to go. He's told his father to make his brother, Grant, the next Alpha of their clan bcecause he refuses to do so. His Uncle's clan is being sabotaged by an evil and sadistic clan just over the border in Canada. This clan is using magic so no one ever sees them, but some of Fearghas's fiercest warriors are turning up missing. Cameron arrives with his friends, Jinx (Ewan Jenkins), the twins Rory & Logan Dunbar, Mac (Cormac Brody) and Jacob Stone who is Cameron's technology/security expert-to set up sensors so no one can sneak in. Unfortunately, even with the sensors, they manage to do damage because of the magic they are using. What ensues in this story has you on the edge of your seat!! There are surprises waiting for Cameron, Rory & Jacob! There is plenty of sexual tension, action and suspense to go around. Fantastic storyline and awesome characters - engages all your senses. I loved this book and so highly recommend it!!!! This book was a gift from the author for an honest review.

Cameron Sinclair is successful and happy with his business. He doesn't have time to lead any packs.He is summoned by his father to go to the US and help his Uncles pack from deadly threats. Will Cameron be able to save the pack and will the white she-wolf make him want to stay? I love this book ! The writing and the characters are just marvelous. The character of Cameron and all his friends draw you right in and make you interested in the story. Then when they reach the US it just goes full throttle , there is action, interesting characters, intriguing mystery , and vile villains to hate. The flow of the story was totally engrossing, I couldn't wait to see what would happened next. You will not be bored with this book ever! Yes there is a cliffhanger but there was conflict resolution , so I wouldn't say it was a traditional cliffhanger. Believe me I hate cliffhangers and this was done so you were not totally peeved but you are dying to get your hands on the next book. This is a Paranormal Romance with a some steam and some violence. I will be grabbing up the next in this series as soon as I post this!
