(Book 2 in the Coveted Series) Book 1 · Book 3
Fresh from defending her pack in battle, Natalya Stravinsky, a whip-smart werewolf with a lovable neurotic streak, wants a little rest and relaxation. Once an outcast, she’s now eager to rejoin the ranks of her New Jersey pack, and has even gotten a handle on her obsessive urge to hoard holiday ornaments. Yet Nat barely has time to revel in her progress before the next crisis comes howling at her door.
Nat’s father has suddenly gone missing, captured by the Russian werewolf mafia. And as Nat steps up to save her dad from a mob boss’s deadly game, two men step in to play another round for her heart: her gorgeous alpha ex-boyfriend, Thorn, and her new flame, the sweetly sensitive wizard Nick. With her life growing more harried by the minute, Nat must stay cool, calm, and collected . . . or else risk losing everything.
“A rich and diverse world that captured me from the first page. Madison is a rising talent in the genre, and she has created a world that I will be happy to visit again and again. A captivating read.” -New York Times Bestselling Author Yasmine Galenorn
4.5 stars out of 5 – RT Book Reviews
“This welcome return of the South Toms River pack proves to be another rollicking adventure for Nat, with all manner of creatures following her. The dialogue between Nat and her partner on the journey is so delicious, the fact that it takes a while to accomplish the mission behind their road trip doesn’t matter. With Madison at the wheel, it’s a fun drive.”

“I promise you, Kept is definitely worth the wait.”

“KEPT is the second book in a series but stands on its own with only a minimum of back story needed. It also blurs the line between Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance by having non-romantic and romantic story arcs. This is a solid RECOMMEND.”

“Natayla is an appealing narrator. She doesn’t feel sorry for herself and she is actively trying to overcome her weaknesses…”
Of all the things I had to face that day, the prospect of sticking my hand down someone else’s pants as part of my Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, just didn’t seem right. Mind you, no one was wearing those filthy pants, but even a gal in therapy should have limits. Today anyway.
According to my therapist, I’d somehow give in to my obsessive-compulsive behaviors less often if I occasionally went out of my comfort zone. Still, in my opinion, my current assignment wouldn’t help me that much.
Five minutes earlier, standing inside the lobby of the local Jiffy Lube, my best friend, Aggie, had given the hot new mechanic a harrowing speech that left me wondering just how far she’d go to help me out. “My good friend Natalya here is one of those clean freaks. It’d be awesome if you’d help her out by letting her put her hand down your pants.
This list is very eclectic, but I write to music that puts me into a particular mood. Every time I hear this music, I ALWAYS think about writing the Coveted series books.
There were a few titles I couldn’t find, but I used them heavily:
Emiliana Torrini – Fingertips
Paper Route – Second Chances
I gotta say, pretty much the whole album called Details by Frou Frou was on repeat constantly. This was the only album they made and I loved it.
