Présentation de l'éditeur

Tales of the Harker Pack: Book One

Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.

When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.

Par Lena Grey - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's difficult enough to grow up in the public eye, everyone expecting so much of you because of who your family is and there's a distinct possibility that you will be top dog some day, but for Cole Parker, of 'The Pack or the Panther', it's even more complicated. Cole has made lots of sacrifices for the good of the pack, but his father's latest request is more unusual than all of the others combined—a political, arranged marriage to secure the safety and unity of two packs. Besides not being allowed to marry for love, Cole is gay and never expected to be with a woman at all, much less married to one. Even so, Cole steps up and agrees to go through with it.

I admired Cole for his loyalty and concern for his family and his community. He's always been dedicated to helping however he can, especially because he's a super wolf, able to accomplish things that other wolves can't—like being able to shift at will instead of only on a full moon. He's bigger and stronger too and his sense of smell is heightened far beyond what the normal wolves can detect. This makes him very valuable to the pack and he feels the pressure of having to perform. He doesn't want to marry Analise, but doesn't expect the strength of her objection to the situation and it depresses him and makes him feel even more undesirable than before. Adding insult to injury, Paris rejects first his affections and then his attempt to secure the safety of the pack by him and Paris being married. Such a nice guy and so much rejection! It broke my heart. Cole isn't able to see how accomplished and what a great leader he can be; but when a crisis arises, he's able to demonstrate those qualities and earn the respect and admiration he deserves.

I wasn't impressed with Paris at all the first time he was introduced. He was condescending at best and the way he treated Cole really set me off. Although their first sexual encounter was spectacularly written, I didn't like the way Paris pretended that it was nothing while Cole is entranced with him. As I learned more about Paris, I began to see why he was so aloof and secretive. It's self-preservation. He had to keep a distance from others in order to ensure a safe environment for himself. It would have been dangerous to let anyone get close. I do think that Paris would have had an easier time if he had stopped wasting so much time on what he didn't want to be and focus on what he actually was, because, like Cole, his self-perception was way off.

The wolves in Tara's story are certainly not your run-of-the mill werewolves. They all had distinct personalities and jobs and some, like Clay's friend, Lindsey, were quite wealthy, not to mention stylish. For all intents and purposes, they are like any extended family with their squabbles, disagreements, expectations, loyalties, and desires. I especially liked that Eliazer, the bad wolf was a gangster. I kept picturing him with a machine gun, stripped suit, and hat, and his underlings as scruffy, unkempt dogs or slimy human mercenaries, which enhanced the image of a huge, sleazy, disgusting, bad guy, not to mention his unbridled lusting after Paris, making me hate him even more. I have to say that I'm not particularly a fan of shifter stories, but Tara, with her skillful writing, vivid imagination, and excellently drawn characters has won me over. I recommend this tale to everyone who likes shifters, hot men, exotic dancing, exquisite sex, and plain down to earth universal wisdom. Thanks, Tara, for the conversion. It was a great surprise.

Okay, that would seem obvious to anyone who read anything about this book...shape changers, territorial disputes, fights to the death. All fascinating but risky for someone known to give us stories written in a lighter tone. What could be more fun than gorgeous intelligent gay men in lovely Laguna Beach?
What about fascinating, intelligent (and yeah gorgeous) shape changers hiding in plain sight? Cole is the only heir to his family's pack and is an exceptionally powerful werewolf. He is also out and proud, or as much as one can be in his society. Being a person of great nobility he is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the pack safe including (gulp) marrying the female heir to another pack. It's not as if he's met his true mate, after all.
Cue the dramatic music and get ready for some fun times. Cole's best friend darned near steals the whole show but there is plenty of adventure for everyone plus more than enough soul searching and risk taking. Any loose ends promise to be tied together in subsequent books since this is "A story of the Harker pack."
How much more can I tell you without giving away some of the secrets you're going to want to discover for yourselves? I don't think adding *spoilers*,to a review is fair since nobody is going to ignore that sort of a teaser. So I'll just say I was provided The Pack or the Panther for an honest review and received no compensation other than a great read on a dreary cold afternoon. I look forward to many more of Tara's personal take on shifters.

I Like This. I wasn't too sure, I think this is one book that is better than the blurb that tries to sell it to you.
Cole is an alphanta for the Harker Pack. He has some impressive powers and he doesn't need the full moon to change into a wolf. Paris is an exotic dancer and shifter. He is half Panther and half Wolf. But he is more cat than dog, he likes his solitude and doesn't like Pack life. He grew up away from the Marketo Pack. No-one knows what Paris is except his Alpha Wolf father Merced Marketo (his mother was an Alpha Panther). There is danger lurking with a threat from a gangster wolf who wants money and power and land...and Paris. Harker and Marketo must form an alliance through marriage and blood. Since they aren't mates the daughter of Merced Marketo and the son of Landon Harker must marry and then sign the blood pact...it doesn't matter that Cole is gay. He will sacrifice for the pack. Except she runs, and the alliance is in danger and the threat to both pack is looming. The solution? Cole can marry Paris. They are sexually compatiable as they found when the she wolf ran off and they commiserated in the trees. The puppy and the kitty got hot and heavy and really enjoyed the event. Except Paris is a kitty of solitude and while he wants Cole, he also doesn't want to be Pack and he doesn't want to be confined.
Eliazer, the gangster wolf, wants and catches Paris - but his spurned wolfie mate gets him back...and then it's all on!
This is a lovely story. It has humour and it has drama and it has a lot of gay loving. How can a wolf who hates crowds but is destined to be Alpha of two packs capture the heart of the recalcitrant kitty? And can the feisty kitty stop hissing enough to live with the puppy despite the pack?
Nicely written, well paced. A bit of a lack in the war area but the story around World War Wolves and the salvation of the shy wolf by the Panther is entertaining. Really enjoyable and I am on to my second read of this book. Well worth the time to read the story of a loyal puppy and a sly kitty.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great shifter story..and funny too 18 février 2014
Par Susan65 - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Pack or the Panther is an exciting and new twist on the ever popular paranormal werewolf shifter story. I do believe this is Tara Lain’s first attempt at paranormal and, if so, she did a fantastic job of offering her take on the whole mate for life, pack-life, and werewolf alliances that are so common in the shifter world. I loved the personality that this book exudes. Tara Lain has a way with words that just completely cracks me up.

You can almost feel the larger than life emotions that both Paris (Anthony) and Cole convey throughout the story. Both are alphanta’s, the first sons of Alpha werewolves, and thus have powers that “normal” shifters don’t. Some that even they haven’t shared with their own families…and that makes things pretty interesting a little further down the line.

Cole is an extremely large, extremely strong, and intensely loyal werewolf who is also shy in crowds, gets tongue twisted, and considers himself weird. Sadly, the weirdness he feels was heaped on him by his parents pretending that gay werewolves don’t exist. This causes Cole to feel less-than and unaccepted for the man he is. He knows his family loves him, but he also know that they wish he were different…normal.

Now Paris is the one who should feel different, not Cole. Not only is he gay in a world where they say gay doesn't exist, but he is also a panther shifter with a werewolf father. His father’s true mate happened to be a panther shifter who died giving birth to Paris. Paris, being a feline shifter, is not a pack animal and prefers to be alone. He has no qualms about rejecting the pack because he isn't pack. It’s all about what Paris wants and he isn't afraid to take it...or leave it.

But Paris also has an alter ego as an exotic pole dancer who goes by his real first name, Anthony, and boy is that insanely hot. I had to go to YouTube and look up male pole dancers and what I found is amazing. Anthony has to have the hottest body ever to be able to pull off a feat that impossibly difficult. But unfortunately he’s also got a gangster werewolf stalker who has an unhealthy obsession with him. An evil wolf who is willing to kill, kidnap, rape and cause a wolf war in order to get, and keep, Anthony forever.

There are a lot of mixed emotions, hurt feelings, and plenty of guilt-laying on the parts of the parents of Cole and Paris. They are trying their level best to create an alliance to save their packs, (by forcing an arranged marriage with a female) but at the expense of their kids. They seemed to have forgotten that their kids have feelings and lives too. This causes a rift that may cause permanent scarring and a gap to big to mend.

What I really loved about this story is the personality. I know I mentioned it above, but truly, I don’t know how to convey that this book has a life of its own; one that kept me guessing where it was all going to lead. Hoping that somehow a cat that doesn't mate for life could actually find a lifelong bond with a wolf that does. Yes, we all want that HEA but I especially like when my guys have to work for it. They do have to work for it in this story and yes, they get that elusive happy ending.

I highly recommend for those who like a little chuckle with their hot and steamy werewolf shifters.
