With Fangs and Claws: A Review

I'm deep in my arcs at the moment, and when I finished one I grabbed this book as a quick read before I jumped into another ARC.  I saw things like...reverse harem, and wolf knotting, and I thought ok...a fun quick smutty read.  No. It was not smut, ya'll. 


Darcy is the daughter of the Duke of Elverston, and is a trained fight and hunter.  She lives in a world where women are subjugated and often beaten by their father's or husband's.  She meets the four young princes of Stralae while out on a hunt, and they immediately recognize her as their mate and future queen.  Darcy wasn't even sure if she was about the reverse harem that fell into her lap, and could she leave behind the only home she'd ever known, specially when she didn't realize how much better life might be for her if she left this very patriarchal society.


I jumped into this book with out reading the reviews, thinking maybe it would be a quick easy smutty read.  It was definitely way more than that.  I really enjoyed the plot, the character development and the contrast between the "heathen warg country" and the "patriarchal human country." The author makes it clear that this is a separate made up world, but I can't help but to see the similarities to our world. Overall I really enjoyed this book, and if you're looking for a different kind of romance book with lots of depth and growth, be sure to grab it! Be ware...she leaves us on a bit of a cliffhanger, I'll keep an eye out for book two!

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐✨ 4.5

Spice: 🍆🍆🍆🍆 - Graphic, but not a whole lot of it, and was well fitting with the story.

Trigger Warnings: Family Violence, physical abuse, and subjugated women.
