Discover Savage Smoke by Kay Dee Royal

Redemption – How far can a rogue go?

Good question, right? How far is too far? Can the worse possible scenario ever be fully erased, even reversed…if we find out about a villain’s past and it feels justified in some empathetic way?

I took a course on Villains – how to make them redeemable, and honestly, Smoke, the rogue Alpha lycan in Savage Smoke, crosses the line and then some. 

He and his pack of rogue criminals tore through book 1, Staring Into the Eyes of Chance, leaving a tidal wave of kidnapping, rape, and even deaths (the killing by his pack, not by his hand…but does that even matter when there’s kidnapping and rape involved?) 

I’d had enough of him…he needed gone. It would be a sordid scene, played out to his notorious benefit as he’d possibly take another with him. For sure Smoke was marked for death in book 2, Savage Smoke. His savage ways were over.

But, he stole my pen and abducted my mind, playing on my empathy and sympathy. For months we battled…you kidnapped, raped, ran away with someone else’s primal-mate and marked her for your own! Who does that and gets away with it…no one!

Smoke: I had reasons for what I’ve done…I see that now, where I was completely blinded by hate and resentments. Life didn’t play fair by me, being the oldest and not making Alpha all because I was born runt of the litter. What the hell does that have to do with anything when it comes to brawn and intelligence? 

Me: You lost your chance the minute you raped, the minute you kidnapped, the moment you marked someone else’s primal-mate as yours.

Smoke: You know our species goes by instinct with mating, we live for sex – I’m no different than the next wolf. As far as the primal-mates – they hadn’t consummated, therefore possession is everything *grins* 

Me: You haven’t won my heart by anything you’ve mentioned here. You terrorized those women, besides abusing them.

Smoke: Who are you to judge me? I want to make amends, I want a chance to redeem myself…I want my own primal-mate. I deserve that for my brother.

Me: Crap! You would have to bring up your brother…I’d like to see how in the hell you are going to redeem yourself to him. This might be worth seeing how it all plays out between the two of you…

AND, so Smoke lives through book 2, will he die in Smoke -n- Bliss, Book 3? Do you think he can come back from being so far over the cliff?
