#WOTR20 #review #Shifters #Novella #POVs – Moments (The Novus Pack Series Book 4) by M Jayne

Moments (The Novus Pack Series Book 4)

Shockwaves from the brutal assault on the Seer are still resonating through the Novus Pack. In their world of predators and prey, even the strongest can be brought down by malicious schemes and long buried secrets. Included are four short stories that take place around the time of M. Jayne’s book Feel Me.

Sophia: This headstrong doctor is enthralled by her new-found freedom and will stop at nothing to protect it. No longer will she allow herself to be used as a pawn by anyone.

Asher: After tirelessly pursuing Issa for over a year, he’s shocked by her sudden invitation to join her in Ohio. Will her motives make his dreams come true, or thrust him back into crippling loneliness?

Bayla: Everything was fine until that insanely sexy Lycan sauntered into her life. Now she finds herself struggling to focus on her own safety while pondering if the mating of a Lycan and a Witch could ever work.

Basil: When he uncovers a plot to overthrow the Laird and to imprison the Seer, Basil leaps into action. He would sooner lay down his life than to allow another Queen to die.

A finalist for the Holt Medallion for Literary Excellence Award, find out why readers are falling in love with M. Jayne’s Novus Pack!

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!

Review by Twinsie Dee

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

#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. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a German Shepherd that refuses to leave her side.

#TwiniseDee #Review #ShortStory #PartofaSeries Resolution: Bad Girl by Angel Devlin

I’m tired of being a good girl.

My love life is non-existent and now my best friend wants to set me up with a nice guy.

I want a man to push me against the wall with unbridled lust, not tell me stories about fluffy kittens.

Then the message comes from my old sorority president

“Remember, ladies. Do it. Whatever it is you want to do. Wherever you have wanted to go. Whatever you want to try, to taste, to feel, to live… do it. This is our year.”

It’s New Years eve, the night is young, and so am I. It’s time to let my hair down. This girl is going bad and she needs a bad boy to see the New Year in with.

And there’s one at the bar…

this was a great short story. Audrina is a good girl that is bored with the way her life is going and how her past year had been, so what better way to reinvent yourself then on New Years Eve. that is exactly what shes going to do turn into the bad girl for a night. Tom was just a random guy at the bar that Rina (her bad girl name) caught the eye off and well the rest is for you to read and find out a bad girl cant give everything away

Some loves are undeniable. Some burn with the heat of summer.

When Homer Lovelly pulled over to help a stranded damsel in distress, he never expected he’d meet his soul mate. But from the moment Claire clocked him in the head with her boot—and then kissed him—he knew she was it.

She’d be his undoing.

Wild, sexy, and fearless, Claire is intoxicating. She’s also leaving at the end of summer, a few short weeks away. Homer knows he shouldn’t fall for her. He also knows he doesn’t have a choice. And with September rising fast on the horizon, he’s almost out of time.

The question is, can he convince Claire that what he feels is more than a summer fling, or will he watch as the woman he’s meant to marry walk out of his life forever?

Scroll up and one click today to see why fans of The Notebook and The Summer Boyfriend will fall in love with this steamy, summer-fling romance.

all Clarie wanted was a few weeks of harmless summer fun, and a possible hook up here and there. when on her way to a party her uncle’s truck broke down and when a hot as hell cowboy stops to help her she thinks why not start the night off right. Homer was just trying to help a pretty lady out little did he know that he could catch feelings and one thing that Clarie doesn’t do is catch feeling. Will her mind get changed, or will they just be a hot summer fling and go their own ways once she leaves. this is once again another amazing story that follows another member of the Lovelly family. i love these books and this family.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead. So, if she sounds like your cup of syrup to your pancakes (or waffles… no favorites here), then give her a “Follow” to any number of social media kingdoms she’s built and stay updated of her upcoming releases, book sales, and book recommendations!

She is fierce.

She is loyal.

She lives.

She loves.

She breathes.

She breaks.

She hurts.

She is my best friend’s sister. She is everything I never thought I wanted. The reality is she is everything I need. Only she wants nothing to do with me.

Review by Twinsie Dee

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
