Claimed: Nightwind Pack, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Kidnapped then released deep in the woods, Brandi is on a harrowing run for her life, hunted by beasts straight out of a horror movie. But there's an even bigger, more vicious creature in the woods - the deadly werewolf who saves her life. Jason is much more than a man, dangerous and intimidating, and Brandi still finds herself wanting every unbelievably sexy inch of him.
When he investigates the desperate screams near his secluded cabin, Jason's shocked to find his own kind hunting a human - but he ends up even more stunned when he accidentally triggers a mating heat in the beautifully lush woman he saved. Overwhelmed with lust, Jason takes her, bites her, binds her to him forever....
Now he just has to break the news to Brandi.

I enjoyed this book and I loved Jason, it was a quick read, with good character development good story, started with a bang or rather a roar and scream. Moved into lovely romantic fantasy with super hot interactions between our hero and heroine, no TSTL antics from our girl.
Now I am reading the second instalment. Lorann and Kele did a good job and I hope there will be a few more books. Also Lorann just wrote a New species book called “friends” two novellas in one book, rather good and I know that there will be more full sized New species from her, until then, enjoy this series, her cyborg series and the crew series. Those are the ones I am recommending, remember I don’t always recommend everything an author writes, just what I like.
4 stars over all, fun, charming,hot, exciting action packed paranormal fast romance.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am a Laurann Dohner fan-girl. I’ve read nearly every one of her books and haven’t read one I didn’t give five stars to because I haven’t found one I wouldn’t read again. In fact, I’ve read the majority of them multiple times… including Claimed; yes, I’ve read it twice already. While I’m not at the same level of fan-girl for Kele Moon, I have read and loved several of her books, all contemporary romances, so she is certainly an author whose releases I keep an eye on. Because of this, I stalk… um, I mean, I follow both Dohner and Moon on Facebook via their author pages and their personal profiles so that I can keep up with news about what they’re working on. Needless to say, when I stumbled upon a post by Moon that she had basically kidnapped one of Dohner’s incomplete and discarded stories, insisting that it had to be shared with the world and that Dohner had told her that she [Moon] would have to finish it in order for that to happen, my stalking activities increased. Okay, okay, I might be exaggerating the contents of the post a bit, but not my stalking. As I said before, I’m a huge fan of Dohner’s writing because I love how she approaches the paranormal and sci-fi worlds she creates, but to have the promise of a new world with a new cast of characters, combined with what is, in essence, a collaborative effort between two talented romance and erotica authors… well, mind blown and stalker level 10 activities engaged. I had to have it. I had to read it. I had to have proof of what I already knew would be true – that I would love it. And I did.
Wasting no time, the authors drop us straight into the action as we join Brandi while she is running for her life, quite literally. While the hero, Jason, does indeed rescue her from a violent death, we come to learn that Brandi is no damsel in distress and she’s no shrinking violet. She is, however, a woman whose entire world has been flipped upside down because she had the misfortune of being kidnapped by men who were actually wolf shifters wanting to use her mutilated body to send a message to the Nightwind Pack – that they were being challenged for their territory. Fortunately for Brandi, her “hunters” had bad information about the movements of the pack and they “hunted” her in an area that did not allow their actions to remain hidden. Enter Jason who, despite being half-human (or perhaps because of it), has no real love for humans, but is outraged that a human female is being hunted, especially on pack lands. Unfortunately for Brandi’s kidnappers, Jason is a pack enforcer and has no problem taking on the trespassers, singlehandedly. What Jason does have a problem with is resisting the tempting female he’s saved, especially when his nose tells him the attraction isn’t one-sided. As any paranormal romance reader would expect, what follows is a short-lived mating dance as shifter instincts take over and Jason finds himself drawn to Brandi in a way he never expected to feel for anyone, let alone a human. What was unexpected (for me, at least) was the catalyst that led to the actual mating – that was a twist I don’t think I’ve encountered before and it certainly made the sexy fun times even hotter than I expected. And considering that both authors excel at writing erotic scenes, I had pretty high expectations. Of course, the mating is not the end of their problems – no matter how good it was – because Brandi still has psychotic wolf shifters after her, Jason has to deal with his alphas’ anger, and they have to figure out how to merge Brandi’s human life with Jason’s shifter life. And there’s lots and lots and lots of fun, laughs, action, and hot sex to be had along the way.
Oh yes, I absolutely loved Dohner and Moon’s collaborative efforts in bringing Claimed to their fans. Even being familiar with both author’s style of writing, I cannot point to what is Dohner’s versus what is Moon’s, which is exactly what you want when two much loved authors write together, a seamless story. Now, knowing what I do about Dohner’s writing habits (per her Facebook posts), I hope that Moon continues to kidnap those babies and nurture them until they’re ready to see the light of day because I need more stories from the Nightwind Pack. I need Desmon’s story. I need Jazz’s story. And I’m really jonesing for Miles’s story. But what I really, really need and am hoping for, is an update on Brandi and Jason as they build their life together. So ladies, please continue to collaborate on these books because Claimed has already secured its spot on my reread list and I need more Dohner & Moon books to keep it company.

I had this in my tbr for a while a thought it sounded good, a little dark and little smut and romance and wolves. It could have been done so well it had the makings of something quite good but no.
I didn't like this book and barely finished it. Though this isn't to my taste and I can't say anything I liked about it a few fellow good readers love it so maybe it's just me having red it after Singh’s incredibly good Psy-Changeling series
No real potential triggers although there is a kidnap and chase.
There are a couple of errors but nothing to get irritated about.
The characterisation is good with individual personalities that allow the reader to form a connection.
The plotline is excellent, ensuring the pages keep on turning.
There are a couple of sex scenes and some swearing.
If you are a fan of the genre I have no problem recommending the book.
