The Mark of an Alpha was a great read. I really enjoyed the characters and the genuine feelings involved.
Bennet is dealing with feelings of shame and not being good enough as he tries to comply with tradition. Marsdon wants his mate to be at peace and is trying to show him that there is nothing wrong with submitting in the bedroom, that it doesn't make him any less of an alpha. The two truly love each other and want what they had in the club but feel as if they are letting the other person down. They have to push past this to have the life together that they need and want. The two wolves also have to deal with an upstarter in the new pack, which push both men to a higher stress level.
There is some action in this novel though it is more about emotions and coming to accept who you are, and knowing that there is nothing wrong with who you truly are. The story flows naturally and seamlessly throughout. I recommend this story and personally, can't wait for the second in this new series to come out.
Contemporary/ Gay/ BDSM/ Werewolf
Dominance and submission mean different things to werewolves than to humans. Once Marsdon and Bennett try things the human way – nothing can ever be the same for them again.
Werewolf tradition is very clear. The alpha pair is the corner stone of the pack. Equality between the alphas is everything. Alphas mate with alphas.
Human leather clubs work to different rules. Dominants mate with submissives. Power is exchanged freely and for the ultimate pleasure of all. Sometimes the most alpha men in the club find happiness with the most omega men. And sometimes the omegas are more than they first appear to be.
A wolf might be able to hide his identity and play anonymously in those clubs for a little while, but he can't ignore reality forever. Marsdon and Bennett have lives to get back to, they have packs to return to...they have wolfen traditions to follow.
They have just one more night together before they have to lose each other forever. All they can do now, is make the most of it.
