As the first female alpha in living memory, Terra Wilder already has her hands full bringing old-fashioned uncles and cousins into line. But with a regional gathering of ten clans on the horizon, the shifter will soon be faced with an even more arduous task: holding her own against a lineup of power-hungry pack leaders.
Justin Young is the strongest of the opposing alphas, and he also happens to be the handsome but disturbing older brother of Terra's own mate. Justin is far too powerful to vanquish in a pitched battle, so Terra instead opts to trick the alpha into supporting her cause by pretending to be a pack princess on the prowl for a husband.
Flirting with a shifter who looks like a dark reflection of her true mate is no fun, but if Terra doesn't maintain her clan's independence, her male relatives risk being tossed out into the cold while her female cousins are turned into chattel. On the other hand, if Terra succeeds, she might just lose herself --- and her mate --- in the process.

Coming Into Her Own
The Pack Princess is an entertaining read. I admittedly haven’t read the first book but in no way did I feel lost or like I was missing anything. Terra is thrust into the role of Pack Alpha but it seems like she’s more of a figurehead or puppet with someone pulling the strings and calling the shots. In all honesty I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Terra but as the story progresses she gains more backbone and starts to think for herself. It’s clear that Terra hasn’t kept up on pack politics and there’s a lot she’s ignorant to but she learns quickly. Using the knowledge she gained from her mistakes to become a better leader. That’s one of the things I like about her. She’s also determined, big hearted and genuinely cares for the well-being of her pack and others.
I adored Terra’s mate, Wolfie. He’s a great leader. I can see the two becoming a force to be reckoned with.
I look forward to finding out what happens next in their journey.
