BLOG TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Turn of the Moon (Royal Shifters #1) by L.P. Dover

Title: Turn of the Moon
Series: Royal Shifters, #1
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: PNR/Shifter
Published: August 24, 2015
One girl. Two wolves. Promised to one. Destined for the other.

To escape the cruel, overbearing, Kade, the Yukon Pack alpha she’s been promised to, Bailey Whitehill flees her home in search of a new life, one of freedom where she can make her own choices. However, Kade will stop at nothing to make her his and begins the hunt.

As Bailey starts her new life, everything she’s known to be true, is not. Time is of the essence and choices have to be made or consequences suffered. Not only does Bailey fear Kade, but another danger lurks deep in the recesses of the forest. Unbeknownst to her, that danger is what she’s been searching for all along. At the turn of the moon, her fate hangs in the balance . . . and it’s up to her to make the right choice.

For Ms. Dover's first time writing paranormal, she did a fantastic job! This story pulled me in literally from the first page and didn't let go. The story moves a quick pace, but not so fast that anything gets overlooked or is left unexplained. I loved the spin on the how the wolves end up with mates, I thought that was a unique twist. Although not as big of a shock as everything that Bailey learns about the werewolf culture and history, and most importantly what she learns about herself.

She and Ryker have incredible chemistry right from the start, but it makes sense once you learn more about their history. Another big shock is when Ryker explains of his connection to Bailey's pack. Once that piece of information is revealed, the story really begins to pick up speed. This story has plenty of deception, lies and secrets, but the entire storyline flows well. But in addition to the possible war between the shifters, you get a smexy romance between Bailey and Ryker.

I think one of the things that impressed with this story is that we weren't subjected to the usual drama of the main characters attempting to fight the feelings they have for each other throughout the book. Feelings were acknowledged pretty early in the story, and it worked for the plot; the story would have been #TeamTooMuch if Bailey and Ryker had to deal with the outside threat, as well as deny their feelings for each other.

This is a great start to this series, and there are enough characters for several books, and I'm hoping we get stories for Sebastian. Tyla and Cedric.

There was a time when I lived for the pack, when I would do anything to save my people. The white wolves were slowly reducing in number, and now everyone was desperate, struggling to make ends meet before we were wiped into extinction. I was twenty-four years old, and a daughter of the Northern pack alpha. It was my duty to continue my lineage. The only problem was, there were no other unmated alphas around other than my best friend, Sebastian, and the supreme douche, Kade Whitemore.
There was no way in hell I was going to alliance myself with that rat bastard. He was alpha of the Yukon pack, violent, and an overbearing ass who’d rather see me on my back with my legs spread open than being his equal. I’d rather die than be forced to be his mate for all eternity. Why couldn’t I mate with Sebastian? Thinking of fucking him gave me the willies, but anything was better than Kade.
Anger racked my body and I sat there, seething . . . until I felt him. He was coming for me; I could sense him drawing near. The closer we got to the meadow, the more I could smell Kade and his excitement—his lust. Hopefully, he could smell the rage and disgust coming from me.
