Hello lovely readers,
I annouced it a few minutes ago, but today’s the release day of Annabelle Jacob’s Bitten by Desire.
For now it’s the last book in the Regent’s Park Pack series, full of hot, paranormal wolfshifter action. ❤
Read this post for my review, the release blitz post was posted yet and can be read on my blog here.
This post also includes a list of all the blog participants of the blog tour, so be sure to visit them. 🙂
There is also a giveaway (the same of the release blitz post), so, ICYMI 🙂
The double review of Bitten by Design and Bitten by Mistake, book # 1 and # 2, can be read here.
Happy reading. 🙂

With a – for now – fulminant end of the Regent’s Park Pack this book surprised me so many times. I was totally into the book right from page one, and I cheered, I cried and wished all the best for Alec and Mark.
When I say I enjoyed the book, it’s not enough, in fact I LOVE it, and it’s the way how Annabelle Jacob engrosses the reader with her writing. The writing is on point, there is the necessary thrill and suspense, the events are twisting and you don’t expect them this way. They have not only a huge impact for the characters in the book, they infect the reader too. And that’s all I want. I couldn’t drop the book for a minute (okay, only for necessary breaks going to the bathroom and eating something obviously :D) and I wanted soooo dearly to see if Alec and Mark get their happy end.
I love wolfshifter series but not all are great. Annabelle Jacobs is one of the authors who delivers a solid story, super interesting, intriguing characters. They are so full of emotions. They are tough, they fight hard and sometimes ugly but never are they malicious – and they truly act in benefit of their pack. At least the “good” guys.
I love the dynamics in the book, the hierachy in the Regent’s Park Pack and the loyalty, so deeply bound to the single members, which is a stark contrast to the crumbling Primrose Hill Pack.
Alec and Mark can’t deny their bond, they feel instant attraction first but soon it’s replaced by the mating process and both aren’t prepared for it. Normally a reason to celebrate both packs are under investigation and have to deal with mistrust and violence.
The wolfshifter, paranormal topic is hot in this book and next to the captivating sensual scenes the procedures in the different packs is displayed in a super interesting way. You see how well considered the whole universe is in which the book takes place and the surrounding story and the hierachy as well as the laws the packs have to obey, including the judiciary with the group of the alphas judging their actions, is not only an interesting part of the story, it gives the whole book the depths.
The book gets the full 5 stars from me. I assume this is the last book in the series, the subplot going on from book #1, Bitten by Mistake, is now solved but maybe we are lucky and get one or two new books. 🙂
So far I keep the guys in mind and I recommend to read this series. So worth it. ❤

Two lovers from rival packs. Have they come together only to be forced apart?
Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction.
As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.
Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.
If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.
