When you’re the top wolf on the continent with the backing of the Goddess, how does an enemy topple your kingdom? By challenging you to a fight? No. By changing the rules.

After three hundred years of fighting and service to the Goddess, Silas Knight is the Patron, Alpha to the Alphas on the North American continent. As the top wolf, he fears little and has seen most things. But when he discovers someone or something has been quietly disturbing the natural order of things, he’s surprised. Certain human women have the ability to birth fully functioning wolves, and that’s a major problem.

Jasmine Bennett has no idea her deceased husband was a wolf shifter or that her twin sons are shifters. Her life changes when she rushes to her son’s bedside after he’s wounded in Afghanistan and returned stateside. Now her life’s in danger because of her ability to give birth to a breed of beings she never knew existed.

After sending out a mating call which Silas answered, Jasmine’s pregnant and depressed. Her life has spiraled out of control. Silas is angry that his first “litter of pups” are half breeds. A group of human breeders offer her a chance to leave Silas, offering a strange brand of protection. When a human breeder enters the compound using a weapon the wolves are helpless against, Silas and Jasmine understand the true meaning of Birth Control. (Book two)

Silas is discovering what it means to have a family. Unfortunately it seems to clash at the worst times with running the wolf nation. Someone is literally throwing a series of challenges at him in an effort to remove him from office. Silas and Jasmine’s relationship is tested and the outcome was uncertain. With prophecies running rampant about the future of the wolf nation, and mysterious happenings, Silas and Jasmine are stumped by the BirthMarks on their sons.

In BirthMark the third installment of Sydney Addae’s La Patron Series we again enter the lives of Silas and Jasmine.  Silas has challenges thrown at him as he struggles to change his way of thinking to handle having Jasmine, a full human in his life.  She is use to things being a certain way and Silas is use to his word being law. I loved how Ms. Addae handled Jasmine and Silas’s journey into compromise.  Both are use to being the boss and that attitude is not conducive to a happy home life.  I loved that Jasmine became a bit more bloodthirsty in this story while Silas learned a bit more about letting his hair down so to speak.  Ms. Addae continues to develop her characters as both dealt with betrayal and hurt feelings.  This while fighting a never ending war.  I loved seeing the continuation of Jasmine and Silas’s relationship.  There are just too many issues to handle in one book and Ms. Addae does a wonderful job of breaking it up while still leaving the reader satisfied with what we have learned to date.  I love the additional strings she pulls into this story while continuing to focus on the growing relationship between Silas and Jasmine.  This story is well written and beautifully developed.  I am left wanting to know more without being disappointed in what I have learned.  I can’t wait to read the next installment and find out what the Goddess has in store for this couple.
