Author’s Website:

Eric Drake, a powerful Dark Wolf, has never trusted himself around human females-preferring to mate only within his pack. That is, until he encounters Chelsea Smart snooping around Silvercrest pack land in search of her missing sister. Secretly, Chelsea thinks Eric is the sexiest man she's ever seen, though she is wary of his potent Alpha energy. Then it's discovered that Chelsea's sister is being held by a pack of vicious Lycans, and Eric heroically leaps into action. Now, Chelsea will risk everything-her body and soul-to surrender to the passion that will mark her as Eric's woman for all eternity...if they survive.

Rhyannon I love you! I was SO excited to hear about this book a while back and after reading it I can say for sure that it was worth the wait! Dark Wolf Rising is by far the best one in the series!!! I thought for sure that Brody would still be my favorite but I was wrong! I LOVE Eric!!! 

This book picks up a little while after everything that went down at the end of Last Wolf Watching, after Eric's dad is defeated by the Bloodrunners and his Rogue Wolf army has been disbanded. Eric is trying to find his place in the pack after the evil things his father did and seems to have found it with the Bloodrunners. When he meets Chelsea he is drawn to her but her scent doesn't call him so he's resistant to start anything with her because he knows she will just end up hurt. But after fighting for their lives and winning something changes and finally his wolf recognizes her scent. Will she accept him or wont she and will he be able to not hurt her? Those are the questions.

I really really loved Eric's character, as I said above, but Chelsea really got on my nerves. Her feelings were all over the place and sometimes the way she acted towards Eric really ticked me off. She was very wishy washy. You either want him or you don't. Don't play with their feelings!!! LOL But she came to her senses and got smart and made everything much better! ;)

It was really great seeing the other characters from the previous books, especially Cian! Can I please, please get a book for him one day? I want to see the sexy Irishman fall head over heels, that should be one very entertaining story because the guy seems to untouchable right now. He needs a mate to show him some happiness!

This is one dark and sexy story with tons of action and a hero and heroine who are about as frustrating as they come! There were times I was laughing one second and almost in tears the next and ready to throw my kindle across the room one second after that. The characters are well written, even if a few of them are totally hard headed, and the story is well built and can be read as part of the series or all alone too. So all in all, this was a really great read! If you are looking for a series to pull you in and keep you there until the very last word, this series is the one for you! Even though this is my new favorite of the series, I still will always love every one of the books!!! Go pre-order your copy today!!!
