When Game Warden Eden St. Cloud goes up against CEO Monroe StoneCrow, she encounters the most intimidating, powerful, and sexy man she's ever seen. Unaware of the fact that Monroe is the Dominant Skin Walker in North America, it isn't until Eden becomes enmeshed in his life that she realizes it's too late to escape. Worse, she's drawn the children under her care into the lair of the beast and must now succumb to Monroe's desires or risk losing her children forever.
CEO Monroe StoneCrow is a man tormented by his obsession with creating a haven for his Skin Walkers. Determined to form a community where his Walkers can exist in peace, he has no time or desire to seek out his own mate, his angel. When Eden St. Cloud crosses his path, there is no denying his instant attraction, or his overwhelming animalistic urge to claim her. His affliction is so intense that even his own medical experts are at a loss to ease his symptoms. With his Skin Walker refuge in danger of collapse due to his preoccupation with Eden, Monroe is stymied by his inability to do what he's always done...simply take what he wants.

"Not bad if u like alpha male tales-which I do"
I liked the story, although short, was fairly well done. The skin walkers were a change from your typical shifters. Monroe was good in that he was definitely alpha, but not always perfect. The female was a little too perfect to believe at times though.
I find the narration can either make or break a story. This narrator could have been better if She didn't put the intonation she uses on the end off her sentences. It reminded me of Anne Flosnik, who irritates me to no end for this reason. A great narrator can make such a difference.
There is definitely potential there, but I would only listen to it if it was done with a different narrator (tho this one would've been good without the weird emphasis she uses on the last word of each sentence.
"OH YEA - This was smoking !!"
Monroe is a very Hot and Alpha Dominant Skin Walker that can change into an animal at will... Eden, who is a very strong willed lady, is a Game Warden for the State's Dept of Fish, Wildlife and Park and is is also considered a law enforcement officer... Put these two together with a bunch of friction, animosity and sexual tension then watch the Sparks Fly...
I really enjoyed this book. Susan Bliler is a new author for me and i will defiantly be grabbing the rest of this series once released on Audible. It's a bit of a shame we didn't get to start this series from the first book in the Skin Walkers series...
The narrator should not gasp for breath between sentences.
I have all of the Skinwalker Series and Redknife is my favorite
Anyone that does not gasp
irritation from the gasping. I is as bad as someone saying uh after each sentence
Great read, love this series. I can't wait for the next book. The narrator was also good.
"Hoping there's another one like this to come!"
When Monroe saves Eden's life (no spoilers from this reader)
This is my first listen of Erin Mallon. I would listen to her again.
Yes, I hated that my commute was over.
"Can't wait for the next book."
Fantastic book. Strong characters and interesting story.
Yes... and searched to see if there was a second book on the audible site. Can't wait for the next one to come out.
"Great Story HORRIBLE Narration!"
Horrible breathing sounds, terrible character voices, way too breathy voice.OMFG why would anyone talk like that??
Whomever this narrator is, they need to get OUT of the business.
Its a great story but the narrator is so terrible it makes the book sound terrible!!
"GRRREAT.... A NEW WERE-SHIFTER SPECIES"
A new were-shifter community has arrived (lucky us) as it's got some super-sexy Alphas, a decent plot and hot sex. However, Audible sometimes release books out of order and this is actually book 4 of the Skin Walkers series but you'd never know as the story can easily be a stand alone listen.
Feisty, stubborn Game Warden Eden and an uber-controlling, confident, arrogant, handsome, rich multi-wereshifter Munroe (who's the Dominant over all of the North American Shifters) go head-to-head and, at first, they battle, argue and the friction between them is intense. But when they eventually warm to each other and the sexual chemistry becomes too much then it's clothes off as the Game Warden becomes fair game in a hot, passionate and very needy way because the collar round Munroe's neck has just announced that Eden is his mate and he's desperate to claim what's his.
Good secondary characters - especially her children and an enjoyable, if slightly flawed, plot which tells of sacrifices made and the power that love has in all it's forms. Strong language, including the four letter C variety, narration was ok but lots of gasps between sentences however hero's voice was sexy and there were sexual dom/sub scenes as a strong very Alpha male meets his fated Angel.
Worth a credit? Although Munroe was a jerk to begin with thankfully he redeemed himself half way through into a loveable caring hero (who's an animal in the bedroom) which easily made this a creditworthy listen and I will watch out for future books.
"Book 4 in the Skin Walker Series."
I really like this book, but I didn't love it. Partly because this book is in the middle of a series and I'm a big stickler for reading books in order. After a while of listening I realized this was a series and I looked up where this book is in the series and this book is listed as #4 on Amazon. Also I would have like to have seen more action with the bad guys. I liked all the characters and the world building was good, I just think it needed a little something extra to have made it better. Don't get me wrong I will be reading the remaining books in the series, but since Audible doesn’t have them I will have to look to my kindle. The characters are great and as a romance this is an excellent book, even if there was a bit more dominance in it than I normally like. I did manage to get this with the whispersync program for 3.95 total and it was defiantly worth that price. Narrator was okay, I didn't mind her but she is a bit breathy which might bother some people.
"Oh the breathy-ness of it all!!"
Yes, I will listen to other books by Susan Bliler as long as they are NOT read by Erin Mallon!
I really didn't latch on to any one character in particular.
There are soooo many! I really like Jill Redfield. I think she would have done an excellent job. Erin sounded like she was either going into or coming out of an orgasm all the time!!
Yes, it was a decent.
