Mackenzie Frazer has been in love with Tala Daciana for as long as he can remember. When he finally declares his love something strange occurs, causing her to disappear from his life. Mac is left with headaches and a strange tattoo from the outcome of that night, only he can’t remember what happened. Four years later, she reappears in his life, and for two weeks makes all his dreams and hottest fantasies come true only to disappear again.

As good as the wild sex is, after five years of the exact same visits, Mac has had enough. He’s determined the next time Tala knocks on his door he’ll get the answers to all his questions. Only he isn’t sure he’ll survive finding out.

If you like lots of fantasy elements rolled into your paranormal story, then Alpha’s Flame is your sort of book.

The opening had me turning the pages because I wasn’t quite sure what was going on but then a whole world of shape shifting wolves and danger emerged.

The hero, Mackenzie (or Mac), is very likeable from the beginning. In fact, you’re pulling for him rather than Tala, the heroine, when they first come together in this story. They have a history and that’s what drives the first third of this book. . There’s lots of passion, sexual tension, and yes, hot sex scenes in Alpha’s Flame.

Ms. Turner slowly reveals the character of Tala,  who she is and why she’s been visiting Mac over the years. Suddenly you start cheering her on too. This story is part adventure, part fantasy with lots of well-drawn characters thrown into the mix. Mac’s transformation into wolf is one of the best parts and well described. The dialogue is very natural sounding and the make believe world is one that I could picture in my mind.

There are also some other paranormal creatures in the story too, and I assume by the ending and the sub-title Council of Wolves, Ms. Turner intends to continue with the story line. I hope so because I’d like to see where she takes some of this story threads next.
