Blood Rites by Quinn Loftis

Blood Rites (The Grey Wolves Series)


With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque's DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?
With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque set off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane's grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother's love, her two best friend's unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?

My Thoughts:
I just finished Blood Rites, the second in the Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis, and I absolutely loved it. I read the first in the series, Prince of Wolves, and immediately began Blood Rites, because I had become so engrossed in the lives of Jacque and Fane, and couldn't wait to see what happened next. It was the kind of book that made you want to crawl up in it and live there. The love story between Jacque and Fane was intense, romantic, with an element of danger that kept me turning page after page because I didn't want to put it down. I loved Jacque's friends Jen and Sally, and their humor, which really made the book enjoyable with many laugh out loud moments. It is filled with scenes of intense action, suspense, and danger, which keeps you on the edge of your seat also. 

I love the take on the werewolves in this book. There have been a ton of books about vampires, and it was nice to see one focused on the werewolves. I really enjoyed the way Quinn made Fane and the other werewolves in this book have such likeable and human characteristics, instead of the monster version you see in a lot of books and movies where the werewolves turn at the full moon and become beasts with no human characteristics or reasoning left at all. My husband laughed at me at looked at me like I was crazy because I told him these were "Good Werewolves," LOL. All in all, if you are a fan of paranormal romance, you will love Blood Rites. It will make you laugh, cry, swoon, and as Jen, Jacque and Sally would say, Fane is "drool worthy." I can't wait for the next in the series, Just one Drop. I highly recommend this book and would encourage you to read the entire Grey Wolves Series by Quinn Loftis.  http://www.amazon.com/Quinn-Loftis/e/B005HJPD9C/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_3
