Alpha´s Darkling Bride. by Linda Barlow. Bad Boy Alphas. ONLY 99c. ARC Review.



A Wolfish marriage of convenience.

Jess:
Montana rancher Cade Derringer wants me naked and vulnerable.
Screw that.
The last thing I need is a dirty talking , bad boy shifter crashing into my life.
Especially the wolf pack alpha, who never lets me forget that the first time he saw me , I was stark- freaking bare-assed.
Trouble is , I can´t seem to stop losing my clothes around him.
But that doesn´t mean I like him.
Nor does it mean I´ll obey his sexy arrogant orders...
Even if I am forced to marry the jerk. 

Cade:
I´ve got no damn use for a wife.
Especially one with dark , mysterious secrets.
I´m a hunter. Chicks like her are my natural prey.
But Jess lights me up with mystic fire every time I nail her.
If she thinks that means we´re fated mates , forget it.
I take what´s mine , but I don´t believe in fairy tales.

Author¨s Note: Alpha´s Darkling Bride is a full- length, stand alone novel with hot sex, strong language, and an HEA.


Oh Wow!!  This is so much more than the average shifter story. 

Jess has come to live with her wolf shifter grandfather,  but he is not at all well. After a road accident,  she loses him. The will he made is bad,  but a promise to a dying man must be honoured.
Cade is the pack Alpha since the unexpected death of his older and much more acceptable brother. When his friend dies and winds him up tight in a death bed promise and the will, he is prepared to put up with the maddening but delicious Jess for the time being.
There is another part of Jess that she is terrified of allowing free. She can't control this part of herself, and it's so strong.
This is definitely an all action story. I couldn't put it down. I love strong heroines, and Jess is certainly that. Cade is also a great hero, strong, sexy and compassionate. 
A wonderful book I loved it.
