Unclaimed: A Curvy Girl and Wolf Shifters Romance (Fate of the Wolf Guard Book 1) by Aidy Award
Taryn barely knows her own name, much less why she’s been thrown to the wolves…. literally.
Before today there are only dark, shadowed memories she’s too afraid to even think about. It doesn’t take her long to find out no one escapes from the Island of the Damned, a hidden prison camp in the depths of Siberia.
But why is she here? She didn’t even know supernatural beings existed until a huge wolf protects her from being attacked minutes after she’s trapped and freaking talks into her mind with the darkest, sexiest of voices.
Then there’s the man who declares himself her guard and tells her she’s more than a mere chubby girl lost and alone.
She’ll need all the help she can get to survive in this desolate existence, especially when the dark Prince of Wolves declares her a menace to their society.

With the promise of something new from this author, I eagerly signed up to read an arc.
And I have to admit, I’m going to be buying the book when it comes out, but for now I’ll be getting a kindle copy)
It’s around 17 chapters long, so it’s long enough to pack in a few surprises and naughty moments 😉
Taryn has no clue where she is, she barely remembers who she is, but she knows her name and how to yell!!! And boy does she yell! Sassy and not really a pushover, we get the idea that Taryn is going to be a force to be reckoned with.
August, “Mr Big and Burly” as Taryn first nicknamed him.
He recognises Taryn straight away (but by a different name!) and is absolutely desolate at her not knowing who he was to her?! (As I said lots of secrets)
Joachim is a priest. A man of god. But he’s also got an agenda!! He knows more than he’s letting on! He doesn’t interact or interfere with the village August protects, but when needed he does appear!
Whose side is he really on?
Meeting August, well him saving her from some weird freaky dude and his wolves is just getting stranger! He seems like a nice guy, but Taryn has no idea what’s going on. And he may have rescued her, but he’s not letting her leave the cabin he brought her too!
Has she made a mistake in trusting him?
So we have a creepy guy who’s after Taryn, who is he? And what does he want Taryn for?
I love her paranormal romances, her dragon and wolves series are favourites of mine. A go to when I want a chuckle and steamy read.
And this one was no different.
A little confusing for the first couple of pages, but once you settle in, you won’t be putting it down till you finish it.
The characters are just great, the dynamics between the main characters worked really well together.
Set in Siberia, we hold our breath as Taryn comes to terms with her incarceration on an island that is escape-proof!
Watching as August tries to gain her trust without telling her who she was! And what he was to her!
Loved Vasily, (thinking there is more to that Wolf than is being told!)
We have a cast of characters that add to the story, some I feel will have a more pivotal role as we get to the next book. We also have plenty of bad guys wanting to claim/capture Taryn (well it is a prison island!)
This is the first book in a new four book series, it’s also a RH (Reverse Harem) that’s also a first for this author (although she did dabble briefly in another series of hers)
Cliffhanger? Yes there is, but don’t wait for the next book, buy it, read it, love it, then read something else of hers whilst you wait for book two 😉
And FYI…. Sign up to the authors newsletter, you get a bonus chapter that won’t be found anywhere else 😉
So, all in all it’s a good start to this new series, and I’m going to recommend this book to anyone that likes their heroines with an attitude, and hero’s that like to serve 😉
