Princess Abigail remains mostly content at Fort Bestial with
her mates, Caine and Stavros, the Alphas of Drayzlake.
There is only one concern. She is ready to become a wolf,
desperate to join her lovers in the hunt. Stavros is more
than willing while Caine refuses. He does not believe that
Abigail is strong enough to endure the process. Female
wolves must completely submit to their mates, and he does
not want to destroy Abigail with the demands required of a
submissive. She has already sacrificed everything to be
with them. Caine is aware his refusal is hurting his
beloved. Between the demands of his heart and duty will he
be able to heal the breach he is causing between his brother
and their mate?
The Wolves’ Submissive
is the sequel to Beauty and the Beasts with more heft
added to the plot. There’s still loads of hot sex mingled
with BDSM elements, as well as emotional angst, along with
encroaching conflict. I can see it will directly involve
Abigail, Caine and Stavros at some point, leaving room for
an action packed third installment. It was enjoyable to
watch Beauty/Abigail take a more active, aggressive part in
her relationship with Caine and Stavros. Caine’s overall
intensity and reasons for denying her request fueled the
sensual tension in and out of bed. His emotional
vulnerability kept me from resenting him. Afterwards it was
just a matter of time before everything crashed and burned.
The anticipation was delicious, erotic.
I appreciate Ms. Johnson’s direct visual style and the
effective manner in which she has taken time to flesh out
her characters’ more along with the storyline. Imagery
plays a strong role in the narrative and the dialogue is
available whenever it’s needed. At this point, I wouldn’t
change anything, despite the fact there’s always room for
improvement. With such a brilliant start, this series will
only continue to grow, gaining more readers and fans.
