Tamed by Bianca Sommerland

When Zaire Torva, enforcer of the Blue Creek pack, finds his mate near death in an underground fighting ring, he has no idea Lathan Ferox crashing into his life will turn his whole world upside-down. The struggle to save the man who claims Zaire’s heart tests their newly formed bond. And proves there’s nothing Zaire won’t do for him.

Only, sharing him might be an issue.

While on a mission to retrieve a runaway wolf cub, Zaire and Lathan come across a beautiful, fierce young woman, Embry Caelitēs, who watches over the child with all the instincts of a mare guarding her foal. Separating the two is impossible, and Embry possesses powers that can help Lathan tame his beast. Unfortunately, Zaire and Embry are like oil and water, clashing at every turn. All they have in common is how much they’re willing to sacrifice for the ones they love.

Surrendering to the wild passion of the animal within, Zaire’s tempered connection with Embry grows, but will it be enough as Lathan’s very existence proves too great a risk for any peaceful pack to take? As Embry’s past closes in on her, and their little cub faces the danger she tried to escape, will love be enough to keep them all alive?

4.5 stars of ever shifting hotness!

I am a big fan of Ms. Sommerland's writing – she has some particularly amazing books in the sports genre (Dartmouth Cobras) that manage to integrate a wide variety of people and their kinks into a wonderful collection of stories – which I turn to whenever I want a favourite good read. She has also written some fantasy which make for some very enjoyable reading. Branching out into the world of shifters made me very curious as to how her natural inclination to ménage relationships would be manifested!

Well, I was most impressed with the world that this book creates, and the wonderful mix of shifter creatures makes it a very rich read. There is a lot of folklore and fantasy woven into the tale, which gives it a pleasing depth. The importance of family over gender in one society; and the complete opposite in another; the impact of control, of magic, of trust and faith – so many issues brought together in what is also a lovely romantic story. Livvie helps to bring humour to a quite dark tale, and the combined skills of the main trio ensure a settled ending.

I think this may be one of those books which will benefit from rereading, as there are many layers and links which in the excitement of getting the romance sorted, can get missed. I am hopeful that there will be more from this wonderful new world, giving me the perfect excuse to revisit this delightful story.

Tell you about me? Hmm, well, there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while networking. Going out with my kids is my only downtime. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for a while—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.
