Regent's Park Pack Series
Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction.
As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.
Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.
If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.

While I have all three books in the series, I purposely did not read the first two in order to see whether or not Bitten By Desire could be read stand-alone. The answer is yes and no.
For the most part, I found the story to be very enjoyable as is. However, there were events in the story and characters that appeared to be important, but without having read the previous novels (a situation I most definitely rectify) I did not know what the events were or who the characters were and how both the events and characters fit in. This decreased my enjoyment of Bitten By Desire, but not by much.
I would like to have seen more information on what the events were and who the characters were. It didn't have to be full chapters, but a small paragraph would help.
All that being said, I give Bitten By Desire a 4.5 out of 5 stars and put it on the recommended reading list, but only after having read Bitten By Mistake (book 1) and Bitten By Design first.
