Angie McClure is the daughter to the alpha werewolf of the Manhattan pack. She has been training to take over as the alpha female for years, but when her father agrees to an arranged marriage on her behalf, her entire world changes. She is no longer allowed to fulfill her role in the family's company, her new husband has taken her place and her only role is to have a child.
She wants out of being an incubator for the next alpha and her only escape is money. Having no access to funds now that her new husband is in charge, Angie must fight in gaming rings to earn her escape.
This was a dark, paranormal, shifter story. Angie’s journey to freedom is one of hardship and loss. I was emotionally moved by the circumstances that gained Angie’s freedom but didn’t understand or agree with some of the choices that were made by Angie as well as other characters in this story. I found Bitter Disenchantment a dark, fast paced, action packed adventure with an intriguing and enjoyable plot. I got to say I’m a little partial to the South Toms River locale since I grew up in Beachwood, the next town over...
