Remus Black is still reeling from an abusive relationship that stripped him of everything — including his desire for love. Now all he wants is a fresh start halfway across the country, but his new roommate is determined to draw him into his strange world of chains, half-naked men and the infamous Lodge, a BDSM club as lavish as it is secretive.

When Remus is entered into the Lodge’s annual Alpha’s Pet contest against his will, he finds himself thrown to the Wolf Pack, the very type of men he needs to avoid. What’s worse is that the wolves immediately label him a submissive, something he swore he would never be again. Things get even stranger when “wolf” turns out to be far more literal than Remus ever imagined. When both the next-in-line for Alpha and his outcast brother claim Remus as their own, the entire pack is thrown into chaos.

Can Remus learn to embrace the power of submission and choose between the brothers before their rivalry tears the pack apart, or will the tension between them unravel his own sordid past?addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14April's Showering Words

Paranormal’s are portrayed differently in this book. Wolves are still pack oriented, however they are not the violent to anyone except vampires.  Vampires however are sadistic, cruel, and manipulative.

When a hybrid is marked by his mate his whole life changes.  What is the most disturbing is that his mate is a twin and it seems that both twins think that he is their mate, something that can’t be.

The hybrid has been abused for most of his life, in many different ways. But the most important way has been in his mind.  He has no memory of many of the things done to him.  He has no idea he is a hybrid.  Growing up in the foster care system has taught him that no one cares.

The twins have their own issues, other than the fight for a mate. They each have unique gifts, and they have been protective of each other their whole lives until now.

This story was really hard to figure out just who was the innocent in this wonderfully twisted story. I am really surprised by who I fell in love with its not the hybrid which was who I originally thought it would be.  It’s actually the self-sacrificing twin, he has spent his life looking out for his twin and his mate.  Yet it seems to always be the wrong time.  I feel for them all, but he just tears my heart wide open.

I can’t wait to read the next installment of the Kingdom of Night!
