Alpha's Strength by Rebecca Royce

Cyrus runs Manhattan with an iron fist. He will keep his pack safe whether they want him to or not. But something is missing and lately he is more on edge than ever. With his pack at risk and the Alphas of Philadelphia and Boston breathing down his neck, he doesn’t anticipate the arrival of his true mate, particularly when he finds her in a coffee house across the street from his office building. She’s not only identical to the mate of the alpha of Philadelphia but has no idea that werewolves even exist, let alone that she’s one herself. Cyrus is determined to protect her while he solves the mystery of her life.

Betsy, strong, smart, and determined, has been suffering for months trying to keep her parents alive. She doesn’t know where the werewolf who followed her home came from and she doesn’t care, he just needs to leave her alone. But as Betsy gets to know Cyrus, she will discover things about herself that she’d never believed possible. She’s the only one who can help Cyrus keep his pack safe—especially when the true believers are out to destroy them.

My review:
Life changed for Betsy the moment Cyrus followed her into Starbucks.  Betsy is in an untenable position being blackmailed into marrying a man she hates to protect her parents.  Cyrus is the Alpha of the Manhattan Pack of werewolves. Born to protect and Betsy’s fated mate.  Problem is Betsy is latent and doesn’t know she is a werewolf and then there is the whole protect the folks thing.  Cyrus runs a whole pack he isn’t going to let a little thing like a fiancĂ© and extortion stop him from getting the one thing that is for him alone. Betsy’s heart.
This is a fast paced, sometimes intense read loaded with plenty of tongue in cheek humor.  Betsy is stronger than it first appears and Cyrus will need every bit of that strength.  Lots of wonderful secondary characters to build on.

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
