Publisher's Summary

Ainsley Connor is determined to turn her back on her shifter past.
But the wolves of Tarker's Hollow call on her to choose the next alpha, and Ainsley becomes the object of desire for every eligible wolf in the quiet college town.
Surrounded by seductive shifters, all desperate to claim her, Ainsley wants nothing more than to leave the pack behind forever. But her newfound passions will not be ignored.
Ainsley soon finds herself torn between the mysterious stranger with the dark secret, the gorgeous and loyal friend from her past, and the hunky sheriff that wants her all to himself.
And the shifters aren't even the strangest part of Tarker's Hollow.
As she struggles to come to terms with her true nature, Ainsley is thrust into the center of a steamy web of shifters, ghosts, witches, and warlocks, caught up in a life-and-death struggle for control of the pack she tried to abandon.
But for Ainsley Connor, the toughest wolf she must face might just be the one inside herself.

Curse of the Alpha is told in six installments, or episodes, like a TV show. Each episode contains a cliffhanger to entice the listener to tune in for the next one. If you're not a fan of the serial format, all six episodes are also available in a complete bundle!

Can Ainsley figure it out in time?

I ended listening to Book 1 & 2 twenty minutes into my commute screaming “Nooooo” because I didn’t Book 3 & 4 loaded and read to go. This picks up right were we left off, with Ainsley and Julian facing off. And WHAM it’s still not how you think it’s going to go!

Ainsley is returning home to Tarker’s Hollow after running away to college over 10 years ago. Her plan is to pack up her parents’ home, pick an alpha, and get out. However, things have already gotten out of hand. Ainsley is learning there is more about herself, her family & friends, and her town. She is surprised to learn about her mom and her best friend Grace’s talents. But Ainsley’s not really open to learning too much. She doesn’t really try to sit down and find out the answers as to what she is. She still wants to cut and run. I felt a little shocked at the extent that Ainsley went to in order to clear out. I felt like Ainsley must be trying so hard not to feel or get attached to Tarker’s Hollow, that she just wasn’t stopping to ask any questions or to feel anything, not weighing options.

The two men vying for her attention and potential for alpha are Erik and Clive. Erik is her long ago childhood friend and he wants what is best for Tarker’s Hollow, even if it means losing Ainsley. You can’t help but to like Erik. Clive is the high school jock that grew up to be the Sherriff. He seems to be sweet, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s buff. You don’t know who she should pick, until you get further in to listening – no spoilers here but let me just say … wow the public face that some people put on.

Then there is Cressida. Cressida has been Erik’s hook up so of course there is lot of tension between her and Ainsley. I ended up liking Cressida. She may have been a bit bitchy and selfish. But she was selfish for the right reasons and there is a nugget of good that showed through.

In the end, Ainsley is on the run and she needs to draw the alpha before she and the whole town are ripped apart. And while Julian seems to have become a non-issue, I wouldn’t count him out yet. It’s just another shoe waiting to drop. I can’t wait to see the conclusion in Book 5 & 6.
