Product Description

For eight-hundred years, Isabel McKay has been trapped in her own personal prison. She is forced to watch the man she loves live his life as if she never existed. Pain, betrayal, and utter despair are her constant companions as she remains locked away.
Brody Balfour has spent the last eight-hundred years trapped in his legacy. He and his wolf both long for a mate, but he is beginning to wonder if it’s a lost cause. Loneliness, treachery, and possible failure are his constant companions as he endures in his birthright.
Finally able to leave her prison, she realizes she is trapped in her memories. She still loves Brody more than her next breath, but how can she forgive him for the things he has done? Jealousy and anger are her constant companions as she is haunted by her past imprisonment.
Finally able to fulfill his legacy after finding his mate, he realizes he is still trapped in a nightmare. He loves Izzy more than life itself, but how can he convince her of that after all of the things he has done? Denial and helplessness are his constant companions as his past and future collide.

***NO CLIFFHANGER. THE BALFOUR SHIFTER NOVELS ARE WRITTEN SO THAT EACH INSTALLMENT IS A COMPLETE STORY AND CAN BE READ ALONE***

Mature reader warning: Trapped With the Alpha is a full length erotic paranormal romance. If you don’t like over the top Alpha shifters with really big d*cks, sex-starved heroines who are addicted to their mates, and tons of explicitly hot sex, then this is not the book for you.

Wow what a great story! Unlike most shifter romances which are generally alpha male tries win girl this one is heart renchingly different.

Poor Isabel is forced to watch the love of her life live his life without the memory of her. While being tethered to him pysically might seem like a consolation, she has to endure seeing him try to find his mate.

I felt so sorry for Brody as he has to make up for a mistake he didn't even make. It was sad to watch him try so hard to win her back & to watch Isabel suffer with her trauma, but all ends well. Sort of.

I can't wait to read the following books by this pair!!!

HASH(0xb105296c) out of 5 stars 4.5 can't wait for more of this series 18 January 2016
By Jess (Nerdy Dirty & Flirty) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Smoking hot and heart-wrenching.

Isabel has been forced to live by the side of her mate, her love, for eight hundred years, all while he has no memory of her...
Let that sink in for a minute.
She has been forced into her own personal hell with no good explanation. She has had no one to talk to, no one to hear her, nothing to smell, touch, eat or do but follow around Brody no matter where he goes or what he does.

Brody is living a life of self-destruction. As alpha of his pack he is supposed to live by example but that has not been happening. He drinks himself numb, screws himself into oblivion and has no idea what his problem is. He has been alive for over 800 years but he is barely surviving until one fateful night when Isabel literally falls back into his life.

"Instead of living happily by his side, I'm living in hell, with no end in sight."

Being back is harder than being gone and Brody is forced to deal with the pain that Isabel has endured while he knew nothing. While Isabel is in emotional turmoil and doesn't know which end is up. These two are good at two things; fighting and sex. Everything else, they can't seem to figure out, not to mention there is still the mystery as to what happened in the first place.

I LOVE paranormal romance books and this was no exception. I loved learning about the pack and meeting some of the other players. I enjoyed all of the characters, Brody is an alpha in every sense of the word and Isabel is a strong willed heroine who doesn't put up with anything. These two heat up the pages both physically and verbally. Their story broke my heart to have it all, only to lose it and one who remembers and another who doesn't. It was also a unique story which had me from the very beginning. I am definitely looking forward to more of this series.

HASH(0xb12c5d08) out of 5 stars Stuck with the Heroine 13 February 2016
By ACOOK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Isabel McKay has been trapped for 800 years, tethered to her mate's side, watching his downward spiral ... watching him hump anything that came his way. Her only sin was that she fell in love with Brody Balfour. Then again, their predicament isn't Brody fault either. They are both victims of a crazy delusional witch looking for revenge. Straight forward plot: Boy+Girl+Ancient Curse= Witch's Revenge but the female lead just messed up the story a bit. The heroine is in full I'm the victim mode and I understand why. But come on.

The male lead (Brody) is drowning himself in self destructive sexual activity and she's really pissed (and its understandable) that she has to witness it. But this character goes from being pissed about him having sexual encounters with hundreds of women for 800 year to being mad that he didn't care enough about them or that he didn't take the time to get to know them. Really? I understand that the heroine's behavior helps to lead up to the climax of the story but there is a certain strength lacking in this female lead.

HASH(0xb0124ac8) out of 5 stars Waste of time 19 January 2016
By lucy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I tend to write lengthy review, good and bad. But for the life of me, I cannot muster up anything for this mindless drivel bit of porn I just read. Granted the premise itself was unique enough but the execution was poor. It lacked depth, the main characters were beyond annoying. So much I wanted the hurled my reading device against the wall. If they didn't fight, they were screwing each other non-stop. And I'm not sure there was even an plot. An 800 year separation and it's back to sex, sex, fighting, and more sex. That's basically the whole theme of this book.

And maybe I'm in the minority but I hate having to read when the heroines ends up apologizing more than the heroes. We all get it must of been devastating watching your man screwing other women for 800 years but really. One minute she's shaking w/anger and jealousy. One touch from the heroes, and she quivering with lust. Way to hold up a strong front. You do us womenfolk proud. I mean, honestly is that's what it comes to these days. Each book lately is almost all the same, weak women who bends so easily. And don't even get me started on the hero. His whole "Get over It" or "I'll screw the attitude out of you" was getting old. I like possessive heroes but not the overbearing, douche type like Brody.

By the time I got to the end, I was sighing with relief. I regretted ever taking my friend's dare to read this book. She finds it amusing to torture me I guess. But hey, if have a couple hours to kill and in a mood for a smutty read with zero plot development go for it. Otherwise I'd skip it.

HASH(0xb017e4c8) out of 5 stars Can a werewolf prince's mate be the blacksmith's daughter? Is it possible for a witch's curse to last eight hundred years? In 26 January 2016
By TSRBR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Can a werewolf prince's mate be the blacksmith's daughter? Is it possible for a witch's curse to last eight hundred years? In Emily Minton and Julia Keith's, Trapped with the Alpha they take their readers from the medieval past to modern day, where the cause of an unsolved disappearance unfolds. In this first book in the Balfour Shifters series an ancient curse is revealed and the reason behind it uncovered. Two lovers, Isabel McKay and Brody Balfour are separated by invisible forces, but true mates will not be denied!

To be by his side every day and yet not be seen. Isabel has lived the life of a ghost for eight-hundred years, present in her mates life but unable to touch, feel or be seen by him. Constantly watching him move through life, self-destructing and not remember her, his mate. Why is this happening to her, to them? When she is finally released from her invisible prison, can she move past the things she has watched Brody do with other women? Things that were meant just for her, his mate!

Unable to find a mate, Brody moves through time with his clan feeling alone and without hope of ever finding his one. Drinking, using women for sex delving into to the depths of depravity, but nothing helps his sense that he is missing something. Suddenly she is in front of him, he remembers her, his mate. Why was she taken from him? How did he forget she existed? Evil forces are working against them, but who?

There are so many layers, with twist and turns in this book, that the reader will become ensnared. The characters are bigger than life and the dialogue between Izzy and Brody is filled with sexual tension and drama. I cannot wait to read more about this clan of werewolves and see where Ms. Minton and Ms. Keith will take them next.

HASH(0xb0943fd8) out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed Trapped with the Alpha 17 January 2016
By Once Upon An Alpha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed Trapped with the Alpha. A story that provides a well written time line that provides glimpses of the past into the present that wraps this story with a gorgeous bow.

A story of love and lost while testing the strength of their love. There is paranormal aspects but I would not say that the foundation of based on a paranormal word. The focus of the plot is written beautifully as we go on a roller coaster of emotions. As a reader you feel the strength of their love for one another while your heart shatters for the very same people who's love is being tested due to uncontrollable circumstances that neither brought fourth. While it's vague, because of the way the story is written I would not want to spoil this book for anyone because there are loose ends that are tied throughout the book that telling the story could easily spoil for the next reader other than to say it's a must read.

The two starring characters in this book would be Isabel & Brody. Brody is the alpha of the Balfour pack, who happens to also be a wolf-shifter who's in love with Isabel, his mate. The strength of their bond is very evident but when they are forced to be separated you can feel the pain between both characters for two very different reasons. Neither gives in easily but neither will give up on one another, very thrilled to see how this book wrapped up and am excited for book 2. Can be read as a standalone.
