Bitter Disenchantment: A Coveted Novella by Shawntelle Madison

 
Werewolf Natalya Stravinsky’s outspoken sidekick, Aggie McClure, is featured in this prequel novella. Before Agatha set foot in South Toms River, New Jersey, she had the fight of her life to face. Destined to be the alpha female over her Manhattan pack, Aggie was fully prepared to take on her role until her father arranges a marriage without her consent. She wants out–but the only way is with money–something her new controlling husband won’t give her to escape. But such odds never kept a wolf like Aggie down. To sever the twisted tie, she finds herself pitted against raging wood nymphs and backstabbing brownies in an underground supernatural fighting ring. With every victory, the sweet taste of freedom is closer, but her husband isn’t willing to let her go that easily. Until the very end, Aggie must fight for the one thing she’s never had: a choice.

You've already gotten to meet Agatha "Aggie" through Natalya's book "Coveted", but in this novella you get to learn more about her and her life. I enjoy when authors like Shawntelle do this, gives you a better understanding when it comes to character development. Shawntelle brings up certain character traits that are not always talked about due to of uncomfortable they are, which to me makes Aggie as well as Natalya and others more human than werewolf. Looking forward to learning more about Aggie in upcoming books.
