Synopsis (Goodreads):
Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.

Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.

Eloise has travelled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.

Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?
Thoughts on Craved by an Alpha: Oh, Cavanaugh. Part of me feels that of the two of them I should have been more devastated by Eloise's plight because she was stuck in a crappy situation and she had no idea why Cavanaugh had abandoned her without saying anything. But... Cavanaugh. He got to me. To be caught between the good of his people and the want in his heart. *sad face*

Which isn't to say Eloise had it any different. She had to deal with some serious abandonment issues with the added bonus of a power-mad alpha who wants to hurt her because of what she means to Cavanaugh. Not cool.

(Even after writing that it was Cavanaugh that got to me more. Weird.)

While we didn't get to see many familiar faces this time around (a scene or two in Underworld with Kyter and the other supes at the bar and then Cavanaugh and Eloise were making their way back to the snow leopard stronghold), we still get the smokin' hot connection between two eternal mates. Honestly, that's what I expect when I pick up these books. *slow thumbs up*


  1. I really enjoyed this quick read. I agree with you that I missed the characters we've come to love in this series. I loved the snow leopards (one of my favorite real life animals). Great review.

    1. I enjoyed this one. I just finished the next book and I find myself LOVING the cameos by previous characters we've met. I'm excited to see what's in store for all of them!

  2. I've never read this author but I have two of her books on my tablet. I'll keep this series in mind, thanks for sharing :)

    1. It's fun AND it ties into the Vampire Erotic Theatre world. You don't need to read that to read these, but it's always a kick in the pants to see great worldbuilding.
