Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.
Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.
Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.
As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.
Untamed Delights is the NEWEST release of the Phoenix Pack series by Wright. I have had such a blast with this series, and the other connecting series as well. I am truly drawn into what this author has created, there is such a beautiful mix of strength and vulnerabilities and we see this in each book and the plots alone any reader would love not just romance readers. This author really pulls you into her world of action and sexy chemistry that is completely irresistable in so many ways.
Untamed Delights draws us in with our two main leads: Dominic and Mila! Mila is a Pallas cat shifter and is about to enter a arranged mating to a Russian wolf. Mila has recently been hurt by her true mate who chose another to bond with. Mila, even though she loves her family and doesn’t know if she can bear being apart from them, also realizes that she can’t stay around the man that rejected her but is still constantly around. But then she meets Dominic and now she doesn’t know what to do with this playful yet protective enforcer who sees the real her.
Dominic is a strong pack enforcer and a alpha male in his own right, but he has a playful side and loves his woman. And has never had one woman that he ever wanted to be with until he meets Mila, who draws him in like honey to a bee. He can’t get enough for her and for the first time in his life, he wants to take a emotional risk on her. Something he has NEVER considered in his life. But while there is a mating dance between Dominic and Mila, there has been a hit out on Mila and they never know when the next attack will come or who is behind everything in seeking her killed. Will they find the man behind it before the worst happens? Or will they be able to, as they work together, bring down the one hunting them??
Untamed Delights was such a fun book but I will be honest in that this story disappointed me at times. Dominic is a character I really have been wanting for the WHOLE series. Anyone who is a fan of the series knows exactly why and even though I enjoyed Mila for him, I just felt like this one lacked a bit of luster that I was really hoping for. The emotional dynamic between the pair is what I felt was lacking, not at all times, but I just didn’t quite get all the feels like I have received from the other books.
However despite the lack luster of feels at times in the story, I truly adored this book and Dominic and Mila make such a solid pairing. They both have vulnerabilities and what I truly valued the most in this story was seeing the way that they opened up to each other in such a honest and safe way. It truly showed how strong their connection was and how selfless they were in their true caring for each other and we need to see this more in romance for sure.
Overall I found Untamed Delights to be a breathtaking, heart stopping love story that will leave you on the edge of your seat, all tingly from all the sexually charged connection and humbled at the poignant moments that steals your breath away!
