Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon’s to-do list: women, work…and more women. It’s a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York—he’s got the money and the power to do anything he wants.
Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he’ll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes.
With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie’s finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She’s got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she’s eager to do this up right. It’s the last chance she’s got to let her hair down.
Until his challenge begins, Jim is more than willing to oblige Lillie’s wish for a final fling. Only Lady Luck has some twists of fate planned for them both…
I have to be honest here. The only reason that I picked up the Alphas After Dark Anthology was because of Caged Wolf by S.M. Reine. Once I started reading it though, I realized just how many books were included in it that were written by authors that I was already familiar with. Best. Impulse. Purchase. Ever! When I finished Caged Wolf (which is in the middle of the Anthology) I started reading from the beginning.
I’ve been a fan of Vivian Arend for a while. As a matter of fact, her Granite Lake Wolves series is on my Seriously Series Challenge list. I love her snarky characters and her smexy alpha males. Copper King definitely lived up to my expectations. Jim was perfect for Lillie’s fling and even though the direction of the story was pretty predictable by the end, it was still a sweet, fun and hot little read. Since this is labeled as the first book in a series, I’m seriously hoping that there are more. And since it’s a spin off of a previous series (Takhini Wolves) I have some back reading to do. 😉
As I mentioned, I read Copper King as part of the Alphas After Dark Anthology. This little collection is packed full of alpha males, complete with motorcycles and females characters that are drawn to both. I’m working my way through these books pretty quickly so stay tuned. Marked by Temptation by Deanna Chase up next. 😉
