Series: Kingdom of Askara, Book 2
Man and wolf. Sworn enemies in the battle for Askara. Can hate and betrayal ever lead to love?
Caleb Harken has spent six years wrongfully imprisoned for his father’s treachery. Tortured and reviled by the very wolf pack he should have been leading as Alpha, he is not surprised to learn he’s finally to meet his death at the hands of the human rebel leader, Taegan Callan.
Taegan gave up his dreams of a life-mate and a family after seeing too many humans butchered at the hands of the wolves—even if Caleb doesn’t seem to be the bloodthirsty savage he expects, and even if he starts to long for a different kind of future with the wolf.
Can Caleb become the Alpha he was always meant to be and lead his pack, or will he finally realize that winning his freedom means nothing when he has already lost his heart?

A great addition to this series.
When I read the first book in this series, The Alpha King, I didn’t know it would be a series. I was so happy to later learn that Victoria Sue would be writing more stories in this world. You don’t need to have read the Alpha King to enjoy this new story but you really should because it is such a great book.
Victoria Sue loves to put her characters through hell but she never fails to bring them back again. This story contains some pretty graphic descriptions of torture but rest assured that everything comes out OK in the end.
This love story between a human and his sworn enemy, a werewolf, is filled with words that had me laughing, crying, wincing and everything in between. There is no doubt that Taegan and Caleb are meant to be together but at times I wondered how in the world it would ever happen. The Alpha Heir is also filled with love of family and friends and the lengths they will go to in order to protect the ones that they love.
Victoria Sue writes stories that grab my emotions and The Alpha Heir is no exception. I can’t wait for the next one in this series; The Alpha Prince is coming in November.
Inquiring minds want to know:
1. Do you buy a book because of the cover, the blurb, or something else?
Both to be honest. But I think like most people I have my favorite authors, and favorite tropes. It’s no secret that I love reading paranormal as much as writing it!
2. What does ‘romance’ mean to you?
A quiet touch. The giving of something without the expectation of getting it in return. I’ve been married twenty years and he’s not as demonstrative as some people – but I mention I’m driving anywhere other than locally and magically my car is full of gas. Water, oil and tires all checked. And he knows I’m capable of doing all that myself, but he does it anyway.
3. What are your current projects?
How long have you got? (snickers) Well – Alpha Prince is just about to start edits—to be released in November—and that officially ends the series. Except I’ve had a lot of people wanting to know about Asher and Sam, and there’s the small matter of a coronation – so I’m thinking a novella to tie it all up. Hopefully in time for Christmas, but I can’t promise.
I have my Enhanced series -Gael’s story is out in January – and I’m writing Vance’s next. I have my new contemporary series called Rainbow Key starting next year. Think white sandy beaches, sparkling blue ocean, and lurve…. Except the power’s out because they can’t afford to pay for it, and a they have a wedding party arriving. Poor Daniel.
4. What is the most difficult part of writing for you?
Not having enough hours in the day. Honestly. I really need to learn to dictate but it’s not happening at the moment. Being able to type with more than two fingers would also be an asset.
5. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise people.
I’m highly allergic to a regular drug prescribed routinely to stop nausea. Two tablets and my eye sight is completely blurred. Three tablets and you would be excused for thinking I’d been possessed by something. The back of my head literally bends backwards until its nearly touching my back. It has a fancy medical name I can never remember. I guess I’m just lucky it doesn’t revolve or they’d be summoning priests for an exorcism 😉
