Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.

Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.

Eloise has traveled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.

Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?

the plot

Craved by an Alpha is about Cavanaugh, a snow leopard shifter that currently has the title of alpha of his pride but he doesn’t want it. He left his pride almost 5 years ago to lose the title (it’s a pride rule). Why doesn’t he want the title? He’s in love with his fated mate, Eloise but because of his alpha status they can’t be together.

Eloise has been hunting for Cavanaugh for two years to bring him back to their pride because the current guy acting as alpha is a real douch canoe.

the romance

Cavanaugh and Eloise romance is both sweet and heated. He has known for nearly ten years that Eloise is his fated mate but kept it to himself since his alpha status kept them apart. Eloise has been broken-hearted ever since Cavanaugh took over the alpha role after his father’s passing.

The alpha thing is not the only obstacle. Eloise thinks that Cavanaugh had a harem (as snow leopards do) and that’s why he stayed away from her. Cavanaugh thinks that the one night they shared together all those years ago didn’t mean as much to her as it did him.

So over ten years they have pined for each other and it was satisfying to see them get their overdue HEA.

the heat factor

These two snow leopard’s can melt the snow! They have hot sexy times in a cave on their way back to the pride and then an even hotter encounter on a fur rug in front of a fireplace.


Even thought Craved by an Alpha is the 5th book in the Eternal Mates series you could easily pick this novella up with no problems as it doesn’t advance any overall series plot. If you’re looking for a quick romance with “kitty” shifters then you’ll enjoy this one.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
