Book: Dead Heat (Alpha & Omega #4) by Patricia Briggs
Release Date: March 3rd, 2015
Genre: Urban Fantasy | Paranormal Romance
Description: Praised as “the perfect blend of action, romance, suspense and paranormal,”* the Alpha and Omega novels transport readers into the realm of the werewolf, where Charles Cornick and Anna Latham embody opposite sides of the shifter personality. Now, a pleasure trip drops the couple into the middle of some bad supernatural business… For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way…
Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.
Why I’m Waiting: Look. I LOVE Patricia Briggs… and the Alpha & Omega series in my favorite. There is just something about the Charles / Anna relationship that resinates with me. A lot of urban fantasy / paranormal romance stories deal with characters and relationships that are very unhealthy. I feel like Briggs did a great job in creating two characters that genuinely work better together and maintain a healthy relationship. And the stories? My god, can Briggs write. I ALWAYS finish books by Patricia within a day. I just can’t put them down. They are vivid, exciting and always adventurous and creative. I’m certainly counting down the days until this one releases.
