Her submission can heal him. His dominance can free her.
Southern Arcana, Book 5
Sera Sinclaire is a New Orleans rarity: a submissive coyote trapped in a town overrun by dominant shapeshifters. Worse, she lacks the willpower to deny the alphas-in-shining-armor who need her soothing presence, even when their protectiveness threatens to crush her hard-won self-reliance.
The only shifter she doesn’t want to push away is Julio Mendoza, a wolf so dominant he’s earned a place on the Southeast council.
Julio doesn’t have the luxury of indulging in the vacation his psychic shrink insists he needs. He can't turn his back on responsibilities he’s beginning to wish he’d never shouldered. When an obsessive ex endangers Sera, though, instinct drives him to get her out of town. Watching her come to life outside the city makes him feel like he's finally done something right, and her touch ignites desire he doesn’t want to ignore.
But soon, lighthearted flirting becomes a dangerous game of seduction, where every day spent falling into each other is another day avoiding the truth. Sera's ex isn't the only one who’d disapprove of their relationship. There are wolves who would kill to get Sera out of Julio's life—starting with his own blood kin.
Contains endless summer road trips, family drama, redneck werewolves, sexual power games and a taboo love affair between a submissive coyote who’s among the last of her kind and a dominant wolf who loves his heroine’s ass. Literally.
This is the 5th book in the Southern Arcana series which I’ve followed from book 1 and am happy to have yet been disappointed! Moira Rogers creates some excellent characters whether they are alphas or submissive’s, humans or some other supernatural and she is consistent with each and every aspect of the series. Impulse is a sensual, exciting, romantic and suspenseful read just as the rest were and I recommend it to everyone who enjoys a top notch paranormal book. I also suggest the entire series be read in order and not scattered. There’s a lot of history, events and moments that lead to this story and the characters surrounding it. Also a ton of fun and adventures to be had ;)
Sera is a submissive coyote shifter. Coyote shifters are very rare, so rare in fact that they are on the brink of extinction. I absolutely adore Sera. Being a female coyote is a lot tougher than one would think, with the male coyotes out there looking to mate and keep the coyotes from dying out. The pressure is really on. But Sera (a very strong for a submissive female) is not going to just give in, she’s refuses to go belly up and give into what they want, nope not any more. She’s going to stay strong as can be and live her life the way that makes her happy and with whomever she wants to be with; Even if it’s another species of shifter that holds her heart and gives her the strength she needs to remain strong.
Julio has a ton of stresses due to his past, present, future, family and the fact he’s an alpha wolf. At times he himself feels unstable and not worthy of his place. Self-doubt is a horrific thing to feel. But he feels better when he’s around one specific person, no matter what the circumstance. He also finds himself falling for this special someone. But that mean old doubt creeps in because of the differences and family members between the two of them not approving of the mix. But will what other think be enough to stop him from making his move?
I really enjoyed the relationship build of Sera and Julio and enjoyed even more the fact how they strengthen one another as well as grow together as a couple. They each make the other feel like a better person and know just the right things to say or do to calm a moment. They are one of my favorite couples of the series :)
