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!
In Episode 1, Ainsley Connor is on a mission to get back to the penthouses of Manhattan before the full moon. Will the wolves manage to stake their claim on her before it's too late?
In Episode 2, Ainsley learns about the danger facing the pack, and discovers that someone she trusts is hiding a dark secret. Will she be able to restrain the beast inside as it struggles to break free?

An engaging, well-paced story

A must read / listen for wolf fans
The story was unique and captured my attention right away.
How it kept me interested the entire time.
No I haven't.
I very much dislike Julian. Once you listen to it you will agree. Haha.
I received this story in exchange for an honest review. May contain mild spoilers.
Tasha Black does a wonderful job of creating a new and unique world in something that is continually visited. Ainsley is a beautiful and independent woman who is looking to pave her own way in life and choose her own destiny. When her parents are tragically killed in a car accident she returns to Tarker's Hollow and her childhood home. From there the story of her destiny begins to unfold.
Of course being the strong woman she is she refuses to fold to everyone's words of how she needs to return home.
While she's back in town she runs into a number of old acquaintances and friends including her childhood BFF turned hunky construction worker Erik. She learns from a friend of her father's that he wished her to mate with Erik.
She also comes across a new resident in Tarker's Hollow named Julian Magie. She's immediately drawn to him for his good looks and love of Russian literature. But all is not what it seems with the enigmatic Mr. Magie.
Ms. Black's world instantly draws you in. I loved how there wasn't a huge build up to the story and how she had to go back home. She was instantly there and the story begins with an action filled dream.
One of my favorite parts of the story is how Ainsley is constantly attracting good looking men. When her wolf mojo kicks in, no one stands a chance. She's quite the hot commodity.
I have decided that I'm Team Erik all the way. He seems so sweet and genuine. I think he would make a good balance for Ainsley.
I'm not sure why but I immediately didn't trust Julian. Something about him just didn't sit right with me. The end of Episode 2 leads me to believe that my judgement was correct. The only way I'll know for sure is to continue to Episode 3. I fully intend to do just that and believe you will too when you read the story.
