Free e-books on Amazon (5/30)

What a day! Really, what a week! Time to find a little relaxation by looking for free books. Amazon here I come!

Lots of books this week! I am trying to make myself feel better since my little monsters broke my Kindle. I'll be reading from the computer for a while. I hope you see at least one good book to grab for yourself!

A Chance of Fate by Emleigh Walsh - Review

Title: A Chance of Fate
Author: Emleigh Walsh


Chance McGregor is known as one of the toughest werewolves around. As the Dominion Creek Pack Guardian it’s his job to protect the pack and its laws. Even if that requires him to find his true mate or mate with someone of the council’s choosing. With the Mating Ceremony fast approaching – and Chance a very unwilling participant – he has more on his mind than pack safety. It’s enough to make even the baddest werewolf whine like a puppy.


Stephanie Taylor is finally making her way in the world. She’s out of a bad marriage, starting a business with her best friend in a great new town, and in control of her stable – if not sometimes boring – life. She can handle boring and she doesn’t need a man to tell her what’s best for her anymore.


When Chance runs into Stephanie on the street, he realizes that he found his woman. The problem is she’s a human. Not a problem for him though. Now all he has to do is convince her that they are meant to be together forever; talk the ever-meddling pack council into allowing the mating; and protect his pack from a group of rogue wolves wreaking havoc across the state. With their hearts, and lives, on the line Chance and Stephanie will do the only thing they can…


My Thoughts: I love how every shifter book is different. They have similar ideas for how the shifter world works but each brings their own element to it. Emleigh Walsh did a great job of creating her shifter world. The pack roles and the laws are different and they added a lot to this story. Creating a law that requires the wolves to find a mate or have one chosen created quite a conflict, especially for Chance.

Chance is a great leading character. He is the pack Guardian, which means he protects his Alpha and his pack. His responsibilities are pretty major. He is frustrated with the current laws put in place by the council saying they will choose him a mate if he doesn't find his own.

Stephanie hasn't had it so easy in the past. I think that her past has made her a very strong woman. She is standing up for herself and her freedom to choose her own life. When she and Chance first meet it is hard for her to accept that fate may have chosen her path for her. I can completely understand that.

Chance and Stephanie have a fast but still romantic relationship. As Chance tries to convince Stephanie that fate has brought them together, and Stephanie learns that sometimes you just have to let go. Their relationship is pretty steamy. All the outside factors, like the pack law, the evil councilman and his conniving daughter, a rogue pack of wolves, and Stephanie's rotten ex-husband converge on them, and threaten to tear them apart.

This is a fast paced and very enjoyable read. Be warned that the steamy parts are pretty hot, and this will be an 18+ book. The way everything ended, especially with Stephanie's best friend, I cannot wait for the next Dominion Creek Pack novel!

Buy it Kindle / Paperback / Nook
