Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.

Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father--and the family that's been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will.

Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not what she had in mind.
When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she's befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that's been promised the winner.
Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who "wins" Owen.

Only problem: Charlie's already fallen for him.

Bitterroot is a 3-part novella series with a dose of sibling rivalry... Who will you root for?  

 
Bitterroot: Part 1 by Heather Hildenbrand & S.M. Reine
Bitterroot: Part 1Long lost sisters finally come together, a tearful moment with joy, right? Not. On. Your. Life. Charlie has spent most of her life alone, with her mother, always moving, always having to hide her inner wolf in the world of the humans. Regan has always lived within the cocoon of her pack, knowing she is destined to grow up to become pack alpha in their matriarchal society and is prepared to become the bride of the vampire prince for political gain. Too bad Daddy Dearest had a secret and that secret was Charlie, his illegitimate daughter, creating a need to have a battle to determine who the alpha will be. For Charlie, it’s a not so nice way to meet your father and your sister, not to mention having your hopes dashed that just maybe you found a place where you belong. When Charlie refuses to fight the sister she has just found, all should be right with the world, but will it be? The vampire she had secretly befriended and has fallen for is not who he seems to be and Charlie is left watching her world implode, once again.

Bitterroot: Part 1 co-authored by Heather Hildenbrand and S. M. Reine has packed so many “hooks” and twists into each page that one cannot help but be completely caught up in this far too short tale! Yes, it is part one of a three part novella series, but it was with great pain that I read that last word. Definitely magnetic reading with tension from all angles making the need for the next two parts absolutely imperative! Don’t feel cheated by its brevity, savor the fact there is more to come!

I received this copy from Heather Hildenbrand & S.M. Reine in exchange for my honest review.
