After seven hundred years, Prince has acquired everything a Packmaster could desire. But when he meets the enchanting Nadia Kozlov, he realizes that there's one thing he doesn't have: answers. Prince owes his life to a man he hasn't seen in centuries, and Nadia holds the key to his whereabouts, because that man is her father.

Destinies collide when Nadia's sister shows up unexpectedly. Katarina is a skilled bounty hunter, hot on the trail of a nefarious outlaw who turns out to be Prince's old nemesis. Prince teams up with Nadia's sister to track down the Mage, but the real game of cat and mouse is already underway as sparks fly between Prince and the cunning bounty hunter. The only trouble is, Nadia wants him too.

With Charming, we take a break from the Weston Pack to focus on Prince a pack master that leads a neighboring wolf pack and has been a side character for the whole series. We got a closer look at Prince in the previous book, Two Minutes. Even though Prince has been around, you could read/listen to

Even though Prince has been around, you could read/listen to Charming as a stand alone but I highly recommend starting with the first book, Seven. The whole series is fantastic but if you wanted to get a taste for Dannika Dark’s writing then you would be ok with trying Charming. Series fans will love that we get a small look at a couple of the Weston Pack but new readers won’t be lost when they show up.

Prince is an old shifter, a few hundreds of years old and he’s a pure blood. He’s been looking for a pure blood mate over the years but he hasn’t found the perfect alpha female. Until, he meets Nadia, the daughter of his long-lost friend. Nadia is everything that Prince has been looking for, she’s beautiful, alpha, elegant, smart, sophisticated, and a twin sister, Kat.

Kat and Nadia may look-alike on the outside but they are mirror opposites starting with their clothing style to their personalities. Kat is a bounty hunter to Nadia’s business woman. On paper, Nadia and Prince make the most sense but Kat throws Prince for a loop. There’s an instant attraction between Prince and Kat but Kat is loyal to her sister and would never go after a man who was dating her sister.

Nadia is only hanging out with Prince because she was passed over by one of the guys from the Weston Pack in a previous book (won’t tell you so that I don’t spoil you). It doesn’t take all for Prince to realize that the sister he truly wanted is Kat. Once the romance part gets straighten out (for the most part) Prince and Kat work together to find her missing father.

Charming is another great addition to the Seven series. I’m sad that there is only one book left, One Second. But I’m looking forward to seeing how Dark wraps up the series.

 

Nicole Poole is an outstanding narrator. She does another amazing job with Charming. Her Russian and Scottish accents were fun to listen to and she brought out the spunkiness in Kat and made Prince swoon-worthy.  Nicole is one of those narrators that makes listening to audiobooks a pure pleasure.

About Dannika Dark

Dannika Dark was born on a military base in the U.S. and traveled the world before she was 9. Now she is rooted in the south but her head is planted firmly in the clouds. When she is not writing, she enjoys a great sci-fi or fantasy movie, heaps of chocolate, reading, and unleashing her dark side. Dannika loves reading paranormal romance, urban fantasy, fiction, and anything that grabs her attention.

THE MAGERI SERIES is an exciting adult urban fantasy romance following the journey of a young woman’s claim to immortality and her own identity. Dark, unique, and full of unpredictable twists, the Mageri series provides an original spin to an old concept. Sometimes ordinary people are destined to lead extraordinary lives.

THE SEVEN SERIES is a light paranormal romance that portrays Shifters living in secret in the modern world. A blend of humor, darkness, heartwarming romance, drama, and real-life issues. This series is for those who love a good love story and believe in second chances. Cliffhanger-free.

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).

  1. Thank you so much for the kind words! Dannika’s work is just a pleasure to read – it reminds me that I have the best job on the planet. It’s humbling to see that my pleasure has translated into yours. Thank you again!

    • I think it’s labeled a novella because it’s about two characters not part of the Weston Pack although there was another story where they weren’t part of the pack. Well, technically the girl was for a short time. In any case you NEED to listen to this series and I need to listen to the other one. LOL

      Oh for the love of all that is holy, please, please, please listen to or read Dannika’s books. I’ve read everything that she has written, starting with The Mageri series, and then purchased the audiobooks over a year later because I love her writing that much. Then Nicole Poole totally just blew it out of the water with the way she brings these characters to life.

    • I have one more audio in the series and it’s done. Then I’m going back and listening to Dark’s other series that’s tied into this one.
