Description from the publisher:
Sarah Harper has spent her life making all the right choices—yet somehow still ending up in all the wrong places. Most recently, her horrendous luck has left her stranded in the middle of the Appalachian wilderness without her glasses.

Cain is an alpha wolf who is already overburdened by obligations. Recognizing her dire predicament, he reluctantly takes on yet another responsibility—escorting the small, nearsighted human female back to her own kind.

Undeniably attracted to the gorgeous alpha, Sarah soon finds herself wanting to make very bad choices. Unlike Sarah, Cain understands the consequences that could arise from lying with a human, but with each day bringing them closer together, Cain isn’t sure he’ll be able to stop himself from being dangerously irresponsible.

Bound to the Alpha: Part One is a 77 page novella. It is the first entry in the Bound serial, chronicling Sarah Harper’s journey as she inadvertently becomes part of a werewolf pack. This story is for ages 18+ and is not intended for readers uncomfortable with sexual scenarios.
This is the first part of the Claimed by the Alphas serial story.  They do need to be read in order.

After wrecking her car and losing her glasses, Sarah is stranded in the Appalachian Mountains and in danger.  Cain begrudgingly assists her and keeps on helping the helpless human as his own instinctual feelings for her push to the surface.

I have a deep empathy for Sarah.  She tries to do everything the “right” way.  She tries to make everyone else happy to the point of finding herself miserable.  She doesn’t see herself as beautiful or desirable, because she doesn’t understand that not all men desire the same thing.   

Cain finds her to be perfectly shaped for his cravings.  Though in the beginning he resented her human weaknesses, he knows he cannot deny the draw she holds for him.  Everything she needs, he provides – food, warmth, shelter, protection, adventure, and honesty.

I loved this story from the start.  It is at times and in-turn sweet, heart-pounding, and lust-filled.  My one-click finger is itching to get to part two of this serial story.
