Under The Alpha's Protection by Doris O'Connor
Tags: Erotic, Paranormal, Romance, BDSM
Nikita Ashton and Raoul Saint Germain have been friends for five years, so when Nikita is attacked, there is only one place she can run to—straight into Raoul's arms.
Raoul is the Alpha of his pack and he is furious that the woman he loves has been harmed on his territory. Were it not for the fact that Nikita does not believe in anything even remotely paranormal, his wolf would have claimed her aeons ago.
Nikita is in need of tender, loving care, not his baser needs that are threatening to overtake him.
However, when Nikita admits that she knows about his being in the lifestyle, the Dom in him cannot resist the challenge to make her his submissive.
Blissfully happy in their new Dom/sub relationship, everything changes when Nikita is kidnapped. Can Raoul get to her in time to save her life?

This story made for a good rainy weekend afternoon read. I wasn't warned, however, about the abuse the heroine might endure at the hands of the bad guy. It didn't ruin the story, but I did have to do some section skipping/skimming because of it. Other than that, I didn't have a problem.

Nikita a nice change of pace for a heroine. She's smart, independent, and determined. What she isn't is wafer-thin and perfect. I liked that about her. She wears glasses and has more curves. The best part comes from her falling in love with her friend before the physical contact starts.

Granted I'm a fairly quick reader, but I think this story is easily tucked into a weekend. If your looking for something for those work lunch breaks and aren't worried about anyone looking over your shoulder, this one works. There may be some language a delicate reader might not be comfortable with, but I don't expect a delicate reader would choose a book with a BDSM theme. So curl up with a glass of wine and settle in with this 3.5 star werewolf tale.
