    One thought on “Arctic Winds”

    1. Impressive love story! I love it when I can feel the romance build between to characters. This story has some humor, a sexy arctic fox and one alpha wolf that can’t keep his paws off of a white fox. These sex scenes are very hot and I am looking forward reading more about the rest of the characters. I hope the author will expand more into this world she has building. I can really see this story keep growing as she writes more about these characters.This is a short novella, so I not going to gi [...]

    2. So I would not recommend this book at all. I could barely finish it and only did so hoping that it wouldget better. It is not the absolute worst book that I have ever read so it gets two stars instead of one. Warning spoliers to follow. So what didn't I like? Not enough detail. There were times where I would go to the next page and wonder "did i miss something or skip an entire chapter?" I mean the main characters go out on their first date, he comes to pick her up and then it's the next day. Wh [...]

    3. There were just so many things that were amazing and perfect about this book. The first 90% was sheer perfection. And on a scale of 1-5 stars I'd be looking for #6 or 7. This is the point where I type up my own statements about novella's not being long enough to develop characters, I'd have to print those very words out and eat them. Like crow. Because I am woman enough to admit Bennett developed two amazing characters. So now I revise my previous statement. I believe that an author can't commit [...]

    4. There is something about this book that really sucked me in and made me love it. I found myself just smiling through the whole book (well, novella - it is only 86 pages on my Nook). I connected with all the characters immediately, not just the h/h. The secondary characters were just as great, and the author could not write their stories fast enough! Even the fox alpha that was only in a few pages caught my immediate interest and made me want more. There were definite problems with this book, don [...]

    5. I am amazed at how much of a story Sondrae Bennett has managed to pack into such a small package! (72 pages!)Samantha is an unsure and timid arctic fox that was orphaned at a young age then kicked out of her skulk four years ago. Since then she has been traveling the country, never staying in one place too long or forming any attachments and steering clear of shifter communities. When she falls ill and accidentally enters into a wolf packs territory she is frightened for her life; she knows how [...]

    6. What I liked:1. Jason2. Cody3. Ethan4. Jason's family5. Pretty clean read where language is concerned. 6. Fast paced7. Dual POV8. Can be read in one sitting Jason is the Premier of his wolf pack. Samantha stumbles in to town on her way to find a place to bunker down for awhile before moving on. Jason has other plans for her which include her NOT leaving his town EVER! He stakes a claim on her, now he just needs to convince her she's what he wants and she's worth it and that she will be sticking [...]

    7. I loved this book although it was shorter than expected the author built a beautiful town in a very short time. Jason is the Premier wolf in Alpine Woods and smells something very enticing. That is when he sees Samantha. He knows that she is a shifter jut not sure what kind. Samantha is an artic fox shifter and was kicked out of her skulk at the age of 21 and has always felt unwanted and unloved. This all changes when she meets Jason. Throughout the book they fall in love and Jason wants to clai [...]

    8. This is very short, but it's a fun read for an evening. A feel good, HEA romance for when you might be in the mood for one. Ms. Bennett manages to get a full story into about 72 pages and not leave you thinking it was rushed or that the ending was too abrupt.The cover is just lovely.I hope she will pen some sequels about this wolf pack and maybe the fox pack next door. She has left us with at least 5 characters for which she can do additional books.

    10. I had a very hard time rating this book. Where I really really loved this book, it didn’t WOW me. So, I can’t give something a five star rating that didn’t toss me over the edge of amazing. However, with that being said the whole story, the characters, the simplicity of the romantic plot line really just made me happy. I read this book in a day, it was a very quick read and it made me smile, I even found myself tearing up a little bit. I did feel that the lead lacked a very small amount of [...]

    11. I usually try to avoid novellas, just because they never seem to have enough in there for me to grasp onto, but this book is the exception. Sondrae somehow managed to give a full plot arc and well developed characters that I fell in love with. Samantha is a drifter, she lives in a town only long enough to save up some money and then move onto the next own. She was abandoned by her skulk years ago and as a result does not trust easily. I enjoyed watching her grow and begin to trust again. She has [...]

    12. Wendy's Review Well let me just start and say wow! Sondrae wrote a story of a timid arctic fox named Samantha who isn't like any fox that the wolf premier had ever seen. Jason knew that Samantha was his mate as soon as he saw her. Samantha was fair with long blonde hair and gorgeously petite against Jason's bulky handsome build. Samantha grew up in Alaska, not wanted or even loved after her family dies. She travels around trying to stay ahead of the dangers facing her. When falling ill and knowi [...]

    13. Now I'm all for the indie authors, and the authors who publish their books through little publishing companies. I support them. I love them. I encourage them to chase their dreams. But what ever possessed this author to write a book like this? Talk about mindless drivel!The story has the damsel in distress (Samantha) and the alpha male (literally in this case, Jason). Who get into a relationship I believe 1 day after she arrives in town and he starts getting an attitude of "oh she's my mate I ca [...]

    14. I've always been fond of reading about wolf shifters and I liked how Sondrae Bennett wrote this. Arctic Winds is the first in the Alpine Woods Shifters series, and I can't wait to read the next. This is my first book by the way.This has a simple story and it's fast-paced. Samantha is a fox castaway by her skulk (equivalent of packs for the wolves) and she has been on her own for four years. She never felt wanted, appreciated, or desired until she stumbled upon the Alpine Woods, a wolf shifter to [...]

    15. This was a great quick read that satisfies a shifter lurve craving. And I learned that a fox pack is called a skulk. Sex and educational merit. Not mutually exlcusive. ;pThis was an insta-love tale between a werewolf and a werefox. No real drama, other than the, "he/she couldn't really love me" stuff. But a sweet coming together (take that in all ways) story of Sam and Jason.I did get one eyeroll moment when our little fox was willing to play doormat and take Jason for as long as he'd have her a [...]

    16. Reviewed by Inna @Inna''s Little BookshelvesThis was an incredibly sweet love story revolving around a sexy Alpha and a shy but stubborn fox. So I have to admit the whole mate things is my dirty indulgence and I love how the concept was carried out in this novella. It was a very short read but the reader wasn't left lacking and the story paced nicely though I do wish I could have gotten more of Samantha and Jason. Speaking of Jason, where does a girl need to get to herself one of these? Okay so [...]

    17. This book wasn't bad. It just wasn't very good either. I would have put it down but it was so short that I read it in 30 minutes. There characters tried to be more than one dimensional but it read like an attempt and not a success. There wasn't much character/world building and any and all issues were resolved within pages. Sometimes even a paragraph. This may sound harsh- and I don't want to be- but it read like the stories you submitted for your senior yr of high school creative writing class [...]

    18. 3 starsSPOILER ALERTIt wasn't bad for a quick read but the book has potential if it wasn't a short story. I quite liked the idea of wolf-fox thing. I could imagine it and the sight was kind of pretty. Furry wolf and furry arctic fox, sounds like fluffy!I was disappointed Jason didn't shift into a wolf form because it was the very thing I was expecting at the end of the book; both hero and heroine shifting into their respective forms and go and play. I'd love to read Samantha's reaction towards h [...]

    19. I enjoyed this debut novella quite a bit. I like unusual shifters and the fox heroine in this story was likeable and had an inner strength but without being Mary Sue-ish. I really liked that she was an arctic fox and not a more common red fox.It's a novella so some things seemed to happen a bit fast but it's the nature of the format. I did have a few issues with the juxtaposition of these being shifters and thus part animal and the occasional lack of being able to use the senses that are natural [...]

    20. My Thoughts: Spoiler Alert!If you have the craving for a small town shifter story, then Arctic Winds is perfect. Samantha is such sweet little arctic fox. Her shy nature is so appealing.Jason shows Samantha she has a place in his heart and town.This couple overcomes Samantha’s fear of never finding a mate. Why couldn't she find a mate? She just couldn't see anyone loving her.The feeling of small town sweetness in this book is very strong. I loved it! I recommend this book.

    21. This is book 1 of 5 in the Alpine Woods Shifter series. I'm going to admit, I was not looking forward to this book because I heard it was bad. The were so wrong! This book was really good. It was fast paced and the H/H were great together. Sam was insecure, but Jason was patient. I didn't really like Cody's attitude but it all worked out in the end. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Ethan finding a mate can be hilarious.

    22. This is my first from this author and I really enjoyed it! The characters were great and I loved the family! I like it when shifter books have more than one type of animal in them and of course who doesn't love a big hunky alpha male?!

    23. can't.evennish brutal. lame h/h, lame story, lame everything.won't delete it, in case i'm SUPER desperate one day and HAVE to read something. but do not recommend.

    24. I truly enjoyed this book. The characters are great. I can't wait to read the secondary characters books. This is the first Sondrae Bennett book I have read but it won't be the last. I read this in an afternoon. I believe it's worth your time and effort. This is what I call enjoyable reading it gets your mind off all the problems you are dealing with in your life. So yes it's a winner in my eyes. I encourage you to give this one a chance.

    25. This was a short quick read. I really liked having a different kind of shifter and Samantha is a type of Fox I’ve never read before, so that helped push me through the few lags the story seemed to have. They weren’t bad, just some things that stopped me from truly connecting. Some things seemed like they didn’t needed to be added into the story to have the same impact. I liked the light drama and the steam factor. I would be willing to read more from this author and this series. 3 Stars #2 [...]

    26. Good But To ShortThe story line is good, however I believe the characters could have been expounded on to give them each a better and more insightful history. Also, I was glad to see the HEA but could have used a bit more drama to make the HEA more compelling. All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and I think the series can just get better.
