Pack Discipline Book 2

Gamma wolf Steffan may have been in love with his best friend for years, but he knows that’s not enough. Francis deserves a more dominant mate, and Steffan intends to make sure he gets one.

Steffan has been best friends with Francis ever since the younger wolf joined the pack after his own parents died. He’s been in love with him for just as long. But when a new beta joins their pack, he knows it’s time to step aside and let Francis form a bond with a more dominant wolf.

Francis has no idea why Steffan’s been acting so strangely since the new wolves joined their pack. When he discovers the truth, he starts to question things he’d never thought to doubt before. What if he has no interest in a dominant mate? What if he could find the perfect partner far closer to home?

Everything is about to change for Francis and Steffan. The only question is: are the gammas strong enough to cope?

This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.


The second story in the Pack Discipline series is as amazing as the first with its strong plot line, strong characters, hot sex and BDSM scenes that I just could not put it down. Kim Dare has once again outdone herself and how she continues to do this is beyond me.

The Strength of a Gamma is about Steffan and Francis who have been the best of friends for years, ever since Francis lost his parents in a bad car wreck. Little Francis found a companion to grow up with in a strange new pack and Steffan took to him immediately, protecting him and helping him over come the loss of his family. The two are almost inseparable and when the time comes to introduce the new Gamma to the pack, Steffan insists to Francis that he needs to consider the new Gamma as his mate.

What makes this story so very interesting is the fact that Steffan is not the Dom. Francis is. And Francis is the smaller wolf, so the dynamics are top of the charts amazing. I really enjoyed reading about the two wolves come to terms with this and act on it. I do love the way Kim refers to these characters as wolves and not men, not werewolves, but wolves. It adds to the whole structure for me. And the BDSM scenes with the two were superb.
