A short but sweet read that’s just the beginning of the Alpha Marked series as the Sisters Wickham find their mates. Of the triplets, this is story of Scarlet and her Alpha mates. To the minute on her thirtieth birthday Scarlet gets an invitation to the yearly Gathering where it’s expected that she’ll meet her two mates.
This is a delightful and fun introduction to the series. There was enough humor, tension, passion and alphaness to get and keep my attention. Scarlet is a bit of a troubled soul in that she’s convinced that having two alpha mates is not going to be the best choice for her considering alphas are so, well… alpha. The Ruling Alpha pair Keller and Madden bonded (not mated) when they were much younger and know that they must share a mate and have spent their lives preparing for this; they know each other well enough to know how to share and share properly. I was content with the way the bonding was explained and even more impressed with the way that they took care of Scarlet. And the bonus for me was that they were not overbearing with the – me Tarzan, you Jane.
Last thing before I finish, even after meeting her mates there was still some hesitation and tension between the three to keep me interested. There are few things that turn me off as fast as when the heroine just gives up all of herself immediately after meeting her hero – thanks for not letting that happen Kyle. Nice!
I’m totally looking forward to the next book in the series.
Happy Reading folks!
