FERAL PASSIONS (A Feral Passions Novel) by Kate Douglas
Welcome to Feral Passions, a luxurious private resort nestled in a preserve and staffed by dangerously sexy men, making it a haven for women who want to get away from it all. But Feral Passions is a front for a deeper, sexier secret-it's a hunting ground for these men. Men focused on meeting each woman's every need. Men who are also the beautiful wolves running wild...and who are looking for mates.
Chereza Dubios is more comfortable solving math equations than she is with her voluptuous body and meeting men. But when her younger sister and best friend trick her into vacationing at Feral Passions, Cherry finds herself attracted and torn between two men who find her curvy body and intelligent mind irresistible. Two men who share a secret-they want to share her.
But that takes trust-can Cherry open herself to love with two sensual and powerful werewolves?

Occasionally I do enjoy reading anthologies as it gives me the opportunity to 'meet' new authors without being tied to a whole book if I don't enjoy their writing styles. This has worked out well for me in the past and I have definitely found some new favorites.
This particular anthology and I have a love/hate relationship. I fell absolutely in love with the first novella, FERAL PASSIONS and devoured the book. Great characters that are easy to emphasize with. And I have to admit being jealous that I haven't been able to stumble across a couple of men like these just looking for a woman to complete their triad.
Now the second novella, THE ALPHA'S WOMAN, is the one that I had trouble reading. This author's writing style had me rereading about every third line trying to figure out just what she was trying to say. This made it rather difficult for me to enjoy the story. The story itself is well written but definitely not my cup of tea.
I do recommend picking up this anthology to any of my readers who enjoy hot paranormal reads. If you do, I would be interested in hearing your take on the stories.
