Lost in Vengeance (Wolf Creek Shifters Book 1)

Her fate is sealed…

Without a pack there’s only one thing about Catrina’s future that’s certain. Death. But all she cares about is avenging her parents’ murders, and being part of a pack will only slow her down.

After being wrongfully imprisoned in a wildlife sanctuary, Catrina catches the attention of the Wolf Creek Alpha—Killian Stone. He wants her in his pack, but Cat refuses to submit, not when she’s come this close to finally getting the revenge she craves.

But he’s determined to save her…

Killian will do anything to uncover her secrets. There’s no way he’ll stand by and watch her self-destruct as a lone wolf because of a past she can’t change.

As their attraction grows Cat starts to doubt every decision she’s ever made. Killian shows her what it’s like to be part of a family and proves to her she doesn’t have to be alone.

Torn between a future with a loving pack, and a past she’s been shackled to for so long, Cat needs to decide if she’s willing to move on…or lose the last hope she’s ever had of finding peace.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review but I did purchase the audio book to listen too.

I am a sucker for a shifter series.  I also loved this authors dystopia book and so I politely begged for this book as well.  LOL  I will say I am very excited for a new to me series to continue to read.

The narration for this story was enjoyable.  Sometimes, you can get a narrator who you just don’t think fits the story, but Skylar Summers hit each voice perfectly.  I really enjoyed her Scottish accents.

Before I start the story review I will say there are times I felt the story did drag a bit BUT since this is the first book in the series, I chalked it up to world and character building.  The excessive details about random things would pull me out of the story at times but over all I still liked the story and am ready for book 2.

Killian finds a feral shifter who is being held in a human zoo/sanctuary when he goes to get her.  Right from the start he knows she is different but does not understand how or why.  We meet Catrina who has been through the biggest loss of her life and is scared.  She was hidden away while her parents were being killed and then ran…for 6 years in wolf form.

We see Killian, Jamie and the rest of the pack welcome Catrina and try to help her acclimate to the human world again.  We also see the chemistry between Killian and Cat.  Its very instant they have a drive to touch and see each other all the time.

We soon deal with pack jealousy over Killian’s obvious affections for Cat.  We see Cat making friends and forming family/pack bonds even if she denies it.  But Cat is looking for revenge against those who killed her parents.

We soon meet the “bad” people but don’t understand what is happening except we know they want Cat.  I will say as the story starts to unfold with who is looking for Cat, her past is opened up and we learn about her parents and life pre-murder, you cant help but feel sorry for her and all her loss.  However, seeing Killian stand and support her even if his wolf gets a smidge jealous made me giggle….oh Killian.

The end of the story was super interesting.  I liked the twist of what made Cat “special”.  I also look forward to Aiden and learning more about him. But first up is Jamie in book 2 and I feel like Mr. Playboy isn’t loving being single after all he says.

Author H.R. Savage (Heather) started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

When Heather isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband.

Growing up in rural Central Iowa, where the closest neighbor was at least 1/2 a mile down the gravel road and her brothers being 7 & 10 years older, gave Kristine plenty of opportunities to use and hone her imagination. From acting out stories with her Barbies, to pretending she was being held captive and guarded by vicious dogs (aka puppies her dad raised), she found ways to entertain herself.
Now she is living in the sprawling metropolis of Cedar Rapids, spending her days teaching high school Spanish and her nights being a wife and mother to a son and furry children. Somewhere she finds a little time here and there to write. Much to her husband’s irritation, her imagination still steals her away to daydreaming about her characters and future stories.
Kristine LOVES reading. She has been reading supernatural/paranormal genres since second grade. Her friends force her to read other genres from time to time, but she prefers a little darkness in her stories. Some of her favorite authors include L.J. Smith, Jeaniene Frost & I.T. Lucas.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Shifter? CHECK
New to me Author? CHECK
Needing to read more of this series? CHECK…DOUBLE CHECK EVEN
Ok so there is no need to try and deny it. I am a shifter girl. I love paranormal and vampires are awesome but shifters….uhm…yeah…HAWT!!
So our girl Casey has had a hard life. She has bounced around and never had a home. She has one true friend, Jake, who cares for her now that she has aged outta the foster system. One night when Casey is going to visit him for some much-needed food, she gets a whiff of some strange men. Two of them scare her but one…well yeah…her gets her a little warm and fuzzy.
As Casey is dealing with some news about Mr. Tall Dark and Uberly Handsome, she is thrust into a crazy reality. She finds out that what she knows isn’t the truth and the truth is off the charts crazy!! Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome, Mack, is the Alpha’s son and he gets her girlie parts a tingling!!!
As her reality is starting to sink in, even more shifter reality is thrust in to her. She must pick a mate or her father who is not a nice man at all will come claim him for his pack. Good thing those girlie parts were already tingling and her shifter cat already claimed Mack as her mate.
The story line was different in what happens during the great war. The idea of co-mingling shifter species was also awesome. I haven’t read books with different shifters all living under one alpha before so I enjoyed a new spin on my favorite genre.

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

Title: Legends: Catori

Author: Maggie Adams

Series: Legends

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: June 1, 2018

Legends: Catori: The Legends Series, Book 1

It’s hard to keep secrets in a small town…

It’s even harder to keep a secret that could expose not only your family, but an entire species. That’s what Frankie Cavanaugh must do. As the daughter of the leader of the Wisdom Counsel, it’s up to her to step into her father’s shoes until another leader is chosen.

It’s also up to her to continue her lineage within the species.

She wants to do neither. She considers the shifter gene a curse rather than a gift, robbing her of a normal life. Unfortunately, the Counsel doesn’t see it that way and is determined to wed her to their next leader – by force, if necessary.

Tanner Coalson is fresh out of college and ready to tackle whatever life has in store for him. First item on his to-do list is marrying the woman he has loved for years. He knows Frankie will baulk at the notion because she’s fifteen years older and was his childhood sitter. He’s no longer a young boy, but a man who is determined to win her heart, and he is prepared to do just that.

But convincing her they are destined to be together gets much harder when she is kidnapped by an old enemy. In order to survive, Frankie may have to reveal her secret, and Tanner may have to accept what seems impossible, or reject the love of his life.

Talon Cavanaugh stood on the grassy knoll above the cemetery, watching the procession as it wound through the cracked tombstones to the final resting place of the Wisdom Council’s leader, Leonard Cavanaugh. He smiled in satisfaction as the urn was laid into the dirt pit next to where his human wife would someday reside. Soon, he thought, soon all would be in place and he could claim his birthright.

“Son, I know how much you loved your uncle. Are you sure you don’t want to go down and join in the ceremony?” his father asked.

Well, the man he had called ‘father’ for most of his life, inquired. It was only on his mother, Sylvia’s, death bed, that Talon had learned the truth. He was the son of Leonard Cavanaugh, the owl leader of the Wisdom Council, who had died never knowing he had fathered a son. Sylvia had wanted to ensure the bloodline stayed pure when it became apparent that the old fool was planning to wed that woman, Paige, an inferior human. Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father.  Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige.  Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.

Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure –  one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.

And that position would be filled by him.

I read this book back in March 2014. Teresa has just released the audios and I am so enjoying going back and listening to them.  I could not believe how much of the minor things I forgotten over the years. I have to say I still love these warriors today as much as I did 5 years ago.

Nicole is a social worker that takes her job seriously. She is determined to keep the kids safe and it doesn’t matter if they are human or vampire.
Damon, one of the Vampire Council Warriors, was sent to train the social workers on how to protect themselves while doing their jobs. The sparks start to fly as soon as Nicole and Damon first see each other. However, Damon does not want to get involved and attached so Nicole comes up with a “friends with benefits” option.

I love that Nicole is tough and stands up to these big tough Vampires, never backing down never giving up and has no issues getting in their faces. Things start to go bad when Nicole and the others realize there are some pretty mean people out to get her because she is doing her job so well. Damon pulls the “I’m getting too close so I’ll push her away” routine and right after she lays her feelings out on the table.

I also enjoyed the close friendship almost sisterly like relationship that Nicole and Pam have. Seeing Nicole, Pam, and Jared interacting was great. Pam and Jared always made me smile or laugh. I would get aggravated with Damon he would be so sweet and nice and then go all Alpha male thinking he was protecting Nicole but only end up hurting her feelings. Here again Nicole always called him out on it and stood up to anyone she felt was doing wrong by her. I loved that she had pet turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and not the typical cat or dog. The way Nicole collects the money for the kids Christmas party was a gag.

Like i said enjoyed this book today as much as I did when I read it. I am so ready for Jared. The narrator did a wonderful job his voice changes were enough that you realized it was a different character.  I am so ready to listen to all these warriors stories and catch up on all of them.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I am a super fan of this series.  I will say you need to read the books in order or none of this will make sense.

I love this different POV from the secondary characters and what is happening during major scene in the first 2 books.  I enjoyed getting to know how people felt during important parts of the book after learning what Raider, the Seer, and the others were thinking about.

Asher and Layla are the 2 stories I am clapping about.  Every look into these love stories make my heart bust with joy!!

I live on a grain farm in Central Indiana with two mastiffs. Ginger who is the elder and thinks that she is a person. She has her own Sleep Number. Duncan Keith (named for the awesome Blackhawk and my fantasy future boyfriend) who just turned one. He knows that he is a dog and likes to sit on my feet. My husband, Mr. K. also lives with us but I’m not allowed to talk about him. He is shy and private. Please don’t try to discuss my sex scenes with him.

I started writing seriously six years ago. It takes a village to publish a book. The easiest part is getting the words out. I now work with the patient and fabulous Deliah Devlin who deals with my dislike and sometimes too much like of commas. Fiona Jayde and Sahara Kelly each work on my covers. I use three proofreaders to look for problems. I also depend on the lovely Francesca for insight and a butt kicking when necessary. Plus my incredible Admanistrative Assistant, David, who is as brilliant as he is handsome. They all help me make the most of my ideas.

I write about older characters because they are more interesting to me. They are to the point in life where they know what they don’t know. I currently have three series. The Casino Nights series is my hottest. It revolves around the members of Team 2 at the Red Rose Casino in Las Vegas. This group tends to allow their pasts to dictate their futures. The Cameron Farms Trilogy is small town based and features redemption and second chances. The Change Series is about people who are unhappy in their current place in life and when opportunity presents itself- they grab it with both hands.

I love to interact with readers and talk books. Any books. Follow me on Social Media and please come to a signing. I hope to see you soon.

Happy Reading!

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #Paranormal #Vampires #Saga #KU – Bishop, The Protectors Book 15 by Teresa Gabelman

Bishop (The Protectors Series) Book #15

Witch hunter and new VC Warrior, Bishop Valentino, takes pride in his duties, both past and present. Never once has he doubted his past as a witch hunter. That changes when a beautiful, independent witch occupies his mind more than he’s comfortable with.

Helping his new brothers of the VC keep all the Dragonfly Coven safe from the diabolical warlock, Orjyll, is Bishop’s number one priority. When that priority begins to shift and his focus is pulled away, his allegiance to the brotherhood is at risk.

Saving the world is something Bishop and the Warriors tirelessly do every day. But keeping witches safe is something new for Bishop, and if they fail and the Grail women fall to what the Fates bestowed on them many years ago, Hell on Earth could come swiftly.

To lose the epic battle between good and evil is not an option. Bishop has to find balance between his oath to the brotherhood and his heart. If not, life as he knows it will change forever.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I finished this book and had to sit and think about how I would rate it.  I was a little confused because I never have trouble rating these books…mainly because they are all amazing IMO and that is what this blog post is about.

I have loved Bishop and the chemistry between him and Bonnie.  But in the Warrior Wedding when they kissed and the sparks were flat, I was like WTF??  What is happening??  Are we getting a new more amazing person for Bishop?  Who can be more amazing then Bonnie??? Because sweet baby Jesus she might be my favorite female in the series!!!  Her sass and fire plus ridiculous comedy….that is a win in my book.

Then we find out why the kiss was so flat and I was like GUUUUURL Bonnie you don’t mess with a Warrior that way….LOL.   But I THINK the initial set up with them was a little slower then and the building of the transition was also a bit slower….the transition reference you gotta read because I am not about to spoil anything ya’ll.  So because of that it seemed a lot slower of a book.  Teresa’s book are generally action packed from moment to moment.  I am not saying that is a bad thing but I wasn’t expecting it.

After the story picks up and we know what is going to happen, I was bucked in and READY ‘TA GO.

I loved the dynamic of Bishop and Bonnie.  The witch and the witch hunter plus I loved the memories he can give her of her mom.  That in itself is something not everyone can do or would do for her.

The final scenes of the book were intense, and I was a bit worried for a few seconds reading the book because I wondered what was going to happen.  Seeing Sloan Murphy lose his shit was kinda hawt as hell too.  Who knew???

All in all once I sat down and thought about it, I really loved the slower build of the book.  I loved seeing Daniel and learning more about his talents.  I am so damn ready for Raven and Charger to get a book.  She is a fierce Protector and she is going to make him do a whole lot of begging to get back in to her bed!!

#WOTR20 #Shifters #Novellas – Sugar Dragon: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons #2) by Ellis Leigh

Sugar Dragon: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance

The next delectable treat from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove will have your mouth watering. This recipe for happily ever after includes one feisty baker with a short attention span and a dragon who’s been hunting her for decades. All of the fated yumminess, none of the guilt.

* * *

Try everything once. That was my rule in life, food, and dating. I never missed the opportunity to have a new adventure, play with the right flavor profiles, or spend an evening with the perfect guy. Who needed Mr. Right when there were a thousand Mr. Right Nows running around? So, when a handsome man with heat in his eyes and a little silver in his hair came waltzing into my bakery, I knew I was in trouble.

He’s annoying.

He’s rude.

He’s demanding.

And he just might be the perfect match for me.

Too bad he’s a dragon shifter, and dragons don’t do the whole fated mate thing. But maybe rules—mine and his—were meant to be broken.


Goodreads



I purchased this book.

I loved the first book of this series and so when I had some extra money, I grabbed the rest of the novellas I the series.  I love how each story is a standalone but reading them in order actually gives more enjoyment because each book seems to intersect with the story.

This book is about Ginger, the girl who will never settle down.  She is also a one time and only one time kinda girl.  She owns her sexuality and is open to getting what she wants…..sex with no commitments.  When she is stunned stupid over an overly cocky and arrogant man version of herself, Kingston, Ginger is not happy over the feeling she is having.

I loved the struggle Kingston has in claiming his mate and abiding by his Dragon culture rules over claiming his mate.  I also loved seeing Ginger freak out over falling head over heels for this shifter when she swore never to fall for the whole “MINE” mentality.

This is a short and sweet story and I cant wait to read more!!

A storyteller from the time she could talk, USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades.

#WOTR20 #newrelease #review #series #Paranormal #witches #Coven #RH – Rain Kimber, An Ariel Kimber Novella by Mary Martel

Rain Kimber: An Ariel Kimber Novella

Rain Kimber thought that finding his daughter and finally being able to be a part of her life after so many years without her would be the end of his adventure.
He thought he’d find her, take care of the woman who’d stolen his child away from him (you don’t want to know), and then the two of them would immediately become the family they’d been before she’d been taken. Rain would soon learn that life didn’t always work out the way you wanted it to, and really? That was a lesson he should have learned a long time ago.
But it wasn’t all about heartbreak for Rain. With his daughter he gained an entire Coven of family, even the ones he didn’t want. What father got along with all of his daughter’s boyfriends? Not Rain, that’s for sure.
Just as life wasn’t all about heartache anymore for Rain didn’t mean it was all about happiness and rainbows either. The Alexander Coven, the one his daughter had joined, seemed to be a magnet for trouble and Ariel Kimber was right in the middle of it. Which meant Rain was right there with her.
And he wouldn’t have it any other way.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

I gotta admit when I got this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Would we learn about Rain and Ariel before she was taken?  Would we see the happy Dad and family man?  Would we see Rain watching Ariel and judging her boys?  What will we learn?

DUDE!  We learn all that and more in many ways.  First up.  Rain is one Loyal MFer.  He will stick by you through thick and thin even when you are Uncle Quinton and make Ariel mad.  He will do anything for his daughter and anyone who he thinks needs him.  He will always hate Marcus *Snicker* and he will love his dead wife for all eternity.  That statement made my heart happy and sad.  I mean he needs to open his heart but yet he just cant.

I loved getting to know this man…not just Ariel’s dad but this MAN.  He is some kinda crazy but also just the right crazy for this coven.  Seeing his heart learn to love another in this book and even accept another of Ariel’s boyfriends as “worthy” of her made my day.

I loved how this book pushed Ariel’s story a bit but also not enough if you miss it you will be lost.  We had some major plot twists and even a couple vomiting in my mouth moments with the Council but are we even shocked they shock us anymore???  Nope.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Dungari Reclaim (Alien Alphas of Pilathna #2) by Nikki Landis

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Another amazing read from this author.  I was a bit nervous entering this word in the last book.  This book I knew what to expect and I was so excited to see where we would go.

This book does not disappoint.  There are many times in the story with Pasha and Holnar’s past troubles that made my heart ache for them.  Pasha is straight up broken and very bitter woman after her heart break.  She is very driven and will so her job.  Holnar won’t succumb to the ugly side of loss thought.  He is not like everyone else and will do what he can for everyone.

There is so much happening so buckle up because you are in for one heck of a ride.  This story is just as amazing as the first book.  I am super excited for book 3 and cant wait to see what happens then.
