The Curse of the Alpha series:
Ainsley Connor is determined to turn her back on her shifter past.
But the wolves of Tarker's Hollow call on her to choose the next alpha, and Ainsley becomes the object of desire for every eligible wolf in the quiet college town.
Surrounded by seductive shifters, all desperate to claim her, Ainsley wants nothing more than to leave the pack behind forever. But her newfound passions will not be ignored.
Ainsley soon finds herself torn between the mysterious stranger with the dark secret, the gorgeous and loyal friend from her past, and the hunky sheriff that wants her all to himself.
And the shifters aren't even the strangest part of Tarker's Hollow.
As she struggles to come to terms with her true nature, Ainsley is thrust into the center of a steamy web of shifters, ghosts, witches and warlocks, caught up in a life-and-death struggle for control of the pack she tried to abandon.
But for Ainsley Connor, the toughest wolf she must face might just be the one inside herself.
A continuing story:
Curse of the Alpha is told in six installments, or episodes, like a TV show. Each episode contains a cliffhanger to entice the listener to tune in for the next one. If you're not a fan of the serial format, all six episodes are also available in a complete bundle!
In Episode 5:
Ainsley makes a powerful enemy. Mysteries are solved and secrets uncovered. How will the pack react when the new alpha is drawn?
In Episode 6:
Ainsley must master her true nature to bring balance to the pack. Will she be able to harness her powers in time to defend the ones she loves?

Exciting, suspenseful, riveting.
The book is jam packed with really great characters. Each brought their own unique quirkiness and personality traits that endeared them all to me immensely. Grace was a good and loyal, magical friend to have around. Cressida wasn't afraid to speak her mind. I loved Eric. He's smart, smoking hot, protective and kind. Ainsley's internal monologues were funny and made great entertainment. I liked Ainsley's character the best, probably because she was the lead character and the story revolved around her.
Addison Spear brings atmosphere to the story through her tone of voice and expression.
There was a certain sense of poignancy surrounding the story of Brian that came across very clearly through Addison's performance and I found this very moving. Although the writing would not have been different had I read the book instead of listening to the audio version, my reading of it most certainly would have been at a much quicker pace therefore losing this emotion in the process. The narration slows it all down, allowing the listener to absorb the images and emotions, the story depicts, more intensely.
Yes definitely. I wanted to listen to all episodes 1-6 seamlessly and without interruption.
"PERFECT WAY TO WRAP THIS UP!!!"
I liked it all...and I like that Ainsley finally embraced her wolf...
The vision Ainsley got in her fight for Alpha....
Addison is a decent narrator, she really grew on me....and got better in each book...I would listen to her again...
I got a little nervous for Ainsley there for a minute....but it all turned out the way it was supposed to!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **I honestly loved this...I loved how it was wrapped up with romance and a strong female lead..Ainsley and Eric were meant for each other...I like that Ainsley finally embraced her wolf and how she became a natural leader...it just goes to show you that good will always win out...I like that they solved the mystery of the locked chest and I actually think there may be more to come!
2 THUMBS UP AND A RECOMMEND FROM ME...TASHA BLACK IS A GREAT AUTHOR, I HAVE ENJOYED EVERY BOOK I HAVE LISTENED TO!!
"Big Surprises and Satisfaction"
Yes, this book has danger, excitement, and mystery making it an excellent read.I highly recommend it.
The lead is my favorite because she is determined and makes her own future despite others trying to tell her what she has to do.
The moment the true alpha is revealed.
I didn't have an extreme reaction but there were moments that made me giddy or gasp in surprise.
There are many twists in this series but it helps to neatly balance the adult content. Yes, wolves are lusty and it's to be expected young unattached wolves are going to enjoy themselves I just find this series drawing me in with the story line and characters more than anything else. The characters keeping growing and maturing with each new development in their world and the way the curve balls keep coming kept me hooked on every word.
Addison spear wow great voice. I loved reading the series but the book totally put it over the top in excitement.
All of it lol
Only the first 2 parts of this story since the author use her as a voice. But she is good! And I do mean the author and the voice lol
Steamy hot paranormal romance!
What an awesome unbelievably fantastic series. Its so packed full of action, mystery, drama & wildness you will be amazed and pulled on this wild ride from start to finish. I could not put it down. If you love shifters and magic then come take walk on the wild side with the Tarker's Hollow shifters. You will not be disappointed. The author pushs your imagination to new heights.
Best book ever
How it ended you are left felling like she was happy
The characters all had a different voice and dynamic
I cried when it ended I want it to never end
It is set up just like a T.V. In this case a book series it's starts out slow but once you get started you can't stop listening . By the second book you will be hooked.
"Finally Ainsley sees her hometown in new light"
Episodes 5&6 pick up right where 3&4 left off and Ainsley gets answers to the questions that have haunted her since she ran away. I loved these episodes even more than the previous since Ainsley finally starts opening herself to the people she grew up with instead of only focusing on getting back to the city. Tasha Black describes the wolf senses with so much detail I could almost feel what Ainsley was going through.
OMG!! The twists in this book were awesome, Tasha Black did an awesome job with this story. The entire series held my attention.
"You just have to keep listening"
The writing by Tasha was excellent and the delivery by Addison was spot on!
I loved this series, at the start I didn't like Ainsley by the middle I was beginning to empathise with her by the end she had totally won me over. Eric I loved from the very beginning, I wanted to stroke the silky coat of this big black wolf. I was so glad he got to be with the love of his life.
Grace and Cressida were interesting, strong characters and I hope to hear more about them. There is more going on in Tarker's Hollow I'm sure and I really hope to listen to more from this enchanted place.
There were so many interesting facets to this series, I knew going in it was a serial which I don't normally like as I'm too impatient, but the follow on episodes were readily available and I have flown through them.
Do I regret anything about this series? Yes I do - it's ended. Thank you so much Tasha for writing this series.
Loved this entire storyline. Listened to the entire thing on audible.com. I would highly recommend it if you're into paranormal romance and sexy shifters! So good!
"Curse of the Alpha Tarker's Hollow Series "
I loved this series. The characters are interesting and likable. About to start on the next set. Tasha Black is a wonderful author and the narrator was a pleasure telling the story!
