Blog Tour, 5 Star Review & Excerpt! Thrown to the Wolves by @RochellePaige1

Thrown to the Wolves 3 (Black River Pack Series) 
By Rochelle Paige 
Thrown to the Wolves (Black River Pack, #3)
Annora Channing's entire world changes the moment she discovers she's a bear shifter. With mated wolves for parents, she should have been a wolf also. When the man she grew up thinking was her father realizes she isn't his daughter, he devises a plan to use her existence to his advantage in a way that will get her out from under his roof.

When her situation goes from bad to worse, Annora escapes but is badly injured in the process. Luckily, Elias Reve comes to her rescue while on his way to Wolf's Point and the daughter he lost years ago. With nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to, Annora joins him on his journey and ends up running smack-dab into the arms of her mate.

Parker Tate knows Annora is his the moment he lays eyes on her. When he manages to mate and mark her within hours of when they meet, he considers himself lucky. Then the trouble nipping at Annora's heels finds her and Parker realizes the path to claiming his mate won't be as easy as he thought - especially not with the bears involved.

***This is book three in the Black River Pack series. Each novella features a different couple.***

I cannot say enough how much I love this series! Of course, I’ve never read anything by Rochelle Paige that I haven’t loved. She is an automatic 1-click author for me. However, this series was her first foray into the paranormal and she conquered it! In some ways, this could be read as a standalone, however, it is definitely better if you read the series in order, starting with Crying Wolf, then Shoot for the Moon, and lastly Thrown to the Wolves.

The story line is creative and I was glued to every page. The paranormal world of wolves is popular and Rochelle could have easily fallen into the “it’s been done” category. However, not to my surprise at all, she took on some unique twists and made it fresh and new. As usual, I am completely head over heels for her leading man.
Parker is definitely a character to fall in love with. Strong, loving, and sexy, sexy, did I mention sexy? He has a bit of a hero complex, however it is stemmed from his knowledge, through a vision of his grandmothers’, that his mate will be abandoned by her family, and most likely in need of a white knight. This is one of my favorite personality traits in Parker. He wants nothing more than to find his mate. When he finds out she will finally arrive, he is relieved and so ready to love her. The moment they finally meet, he knows she is his (enter the swoon-worthy alpha traits) and already accepts that he loves her. It’s so freaking hot when a guy is all about wooing his girl. And this attitude is most of what convinces Annora to accept him as her mate immediately.

Annora has had the upbringing from Hell. Her abusive father and weak mother have treated her terribly at it is a wonder that she has any strength left inside her at all. When the danger to her life hits an all-time high, due mostly to the discovery of a well-kept secret by her mother, she is forced to flee. Luckily, she is aided by a stranger who begins to show her that the world is not filled with the evil she has been subjected to her whole life.

The story unfold with steamy, toe-curling passion, love, and some suspenseful action. As a novella, it goes quick (much to my disappointment because I wasn't ready to say goodbye) but it doesn't leave anything out. The story is well thought out and completely developed.

I read this in one sitting, unable to tare myself away! 5 huge stars to another Rochelle Paige book that goes on my “to be read again and again” list!

My heart raced at the thought of finally finding her—the woman who was destined to be my mate. My brothers liked to tease me about being a bit of a white knight because I had a habit of helping women who were in distress, but I couldn’t stop myself from doing it. Ever since our grandmother had told me that my mate would have been discarded by her family, I’d struggled with the knowledge that she could be out there somewhere, desperately in need of help, without my being able to give it to her. So I’d compensated by aiding other women in the hope that someone else would be there for my mate when I couldn’t be. If Eliza’s dream was right, then I might not have to wait much longer.
“When?” I rasped out. “Were there any signs pointing to when she would be here?”
“I can’t be sure,” Eliza said with a look of apology on her face. “But I feel like it might be this winter.”
“Thank fuck,” I whispered, a huge wave of relief rolling through me.

I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
