He waited to claim her…
Has time run out?
Derek wants Sylvia back – now. His Beta. His second-in-command. His lifemate. As a Top Alpha, few obstacles stand in his way. But even with nearly infinite resources at his fingertips, he’s spent months searching for his missing unclaimed mate, her agony slowing driving him feral. If he doesn’t find her soon, he’ll destroy everyone in his way.
But not broken.
Three months since her abduction, Sylvia keeps a mental tally as day passes into night. Torture and endless rounds of experimentation push her to the brink. Silver in the walls burns her, drugs keep her complacent. Freedom is a dream. Rescue is impossible.
If she escapes, will she be sane?
If she comes home a damaged werewolf, will her pack accept her…
Or kill her?
Bonus novella included: Unexpected Werewolf
Lori hadn’t expected her world to change. Go to work, avoid her asshole boss Ed, and spend time with friends. Then he came into her life. With a few simple words, he altered everything. Can she accept the new and the unknown?
Sylvia’s Torment is a roller coaster of a Paranormal Romance, and damn, it was a great ride. This is my second read by author Veronica Del Rosa, with the first in the Enforcers and Coterie Series being my introduction to her, and she just keeps getting better. This action-packed story follows sexy Top Alpha Derek Quinlan as he searches for his abducted pack mate and loyal Beta, Sylvie.
He’s a tough, unrelenting, shrewd leader who hunts down his missing lifemate with the same fierce tenacity that won him his position as the head of Toronto’s packs. But as you read on you discover Derek is a study in contrasts. Despite his icy facade and all that power, the tenderness and adoration he shows for his woman as she recovers from a horrific ordeal is a refreshing character trait for an uber-alpha male in the PNR genre.
“Broken can be fixed.”
And Sylvie is no doormat heroine. Her strength and fortitude gained my respect immediately and had me not only hoping Derek would finally reveal to her that they’re meant to be, but that these two would catch a break for once! Enemies attacked our MC’s from every angle from start to finish and I had my fingers crossed tightly for an HEA.
This is a well written, sensual tale featuring a couple who truly care for one another, and I highly recommend it.
