All Sybil Ames wanted to do was become a good, powerful witch instead of her current position of a witch apprentice, or should she say “the coven’s errand girl”.  Maybe with the help of an old book she found at a yard sale, Sybil will finally be able to cast magical spells.  But, Sybil gained more than she bargained for when she unknowingly opened the gate to the Shadow Realm accidentally releasing demons into the world.  Deeply upset and horrified by what she had done, Sybil begged the goddess for forgiveness.

Luckily for Sybil, the goddess took pity on her and she was happily willing to do whatever it took to close the gate that was until she learned what she had to do to right her wrong – she had to become a Shadow Guardian.  The only way to do that was to spend twenty-four hours in a sexual escapade with each of the original five male Shadow Guardian members.

In her mind, Sybil knew that now was not the time to fall in love; nevertheless, her heart had other ideas and Kenrick, the wolf shifter, was the man who stole it.  And, although his body was in total agreement, Kenrick refused to acknowledge that Sybil was his mate, especially since she was a witch.  Will Sybil be able to convince Kenrick that they belonged together?  And more importantly, will she be able to fulfill her promise to the goddess by closing the gate to the otherworld?

Kudos goes to Charlene Teglia for starting out with a bang in her creation of the Shadow Guardians series!  Claimed by the Wolf was a thrilling, sexually charged story that left me breathless with heated desire.  All of the five male Shadow Guardians oozed great sex appeal and they had Sybil tied tightly in knots so much so that she didn’t know whether she was coming or going half of the time and each of her sexual encounters with the men was steamy hot and wickedly exciting.  Readers, you definitely will be blushing on countless occasions before the dramatic conclusion makes its appearance.  And, if that was enough to put your panties in a twister, the suspenseful undertones will have you hanging on the edge of your seat with intriguing anticipation eager to see just how the storyline will unfold.  All in all, Claimed by the Wolf was a spectacular novel that I took great pleasure in reading.  I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the four remaining Shadow Guardians.
