#Review – Penny Lane, Paranormal Investigator: The Ouija Board Mystery by David J. Cooper

Penny Lane, Paranormal Investigator - The Ouija Board Mystery (Penny Lane - Paranormal Investigator Book 1) by [Cooper, David J]

When a group of teenage schoolgirls fool around in the school break, they accidentally injure one of their friends. She dies as a result. They try to contact her by using a Ouija board. They believe that they have contacted her, but release an evil entity instead which threatens their lives. They contact Penny Lane – a paranormal investigator, for help. She tells them what they have to do to destroy it. They follow her instructions but four of them die mysteriously. The two terrified remaining survivors return to see Penny, but is it too late for her to save them? A story that will make you think twice before dabbling with the occult.

Goodreads

This story is very much intriguing. I was very excited to get into this as the author starts from the very beginning letting us know that this is based on real events. Which in turn makes me want to read it even more. We get started and get some background on the village and the people. We meet Penny Lane as well. I thought this was going to be more about Penny Lane actually investigating the paranormal activities but this was not the case. Four girls try to summon their friend who tragically passed away but they unlock some bad spirits. From here the story kind of jumps around between these girls and a few other characters with different types of paranormal things happening. Very little is actually about Penny Lane investigating the incidents. It is a short story and easy to read but I wish the author would have spent more time building the setting and letting us get to know the characters better. I really wanted this story to be great. It was good for me but it has the potential for so much more. I look forward to see what else David Cooper sends our way.

#NewRelease #Shifter #Review Witch’s Mate (True Mates Book 4) by Alicia Montgomery

***Can be read as a standalone werewolf shifter billionaire paranormal romance book**

The next arc of the True Mates Series begins with San Francisco Alpha Liam Henney and witch Lara Chatraine as they fight their growing attraction.

When a chance encounter with Liam Henney sparks instant lust, Lara Chatraine discovers that the Lycan Alpha may be her True Mate. Lara Chatraine was born with special powers, but it comes with a price: a curse, one that would put Liam in danger if they pursued their attraction. Determined to protect him, she resists his advances and keeps the knowledge of their true connection to herself.

As Alpha to the most powerful clans on the West Coast, Liam Henney has a duty to his family and his people, not only to protect them, but also to produce the next Lycan heir. But, weeks after their passionate encounter, Liam can’t get Lara out of his mind. The normally constrained and reserved Liam has had one thing on his mind – to possess the bewitching beauty and make her his.

When members of the San Francisco clan turn up dead, suspicion turns to the bloodthirsty mages. Liam and Lara must work together to stop Master Mage Stefan, and take him down before he harms more people and expose the existence of Lycans and witches to the world. As Liam breaks down her defenses and stokes her desires, can Lara keep him safe from her curse and defeat the mages before it’s too late?

Witch’s Mate is a full-length (over 70,000 words) werewolf paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series. Though not necessary, I recommend you read the rest of the books to understand the world and the main plot.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Witch’s Mate is book 4 in the True Mates series and is about the Liam Henney, Alpha of a old and powerful family on the West Coast and Lara Chatraine a witch that is working with the New York Alpha against the mages.
These two are not new to each other, they’ve met before when rescuing her cousin from the mages that kidnapped her. They also had a hot elevator encounter at the Fenrir Corporation. It was so hot that neither can stop thinking of the other and thinking about Liam is something that Lara just can not have.
Lara is not just a witch, she is a blessed witch and blessed witches have great powers, but because being blessed is from the Goddess herself the must be balance and the balance is not being able to love. If she falls in love she then dreams of that loved ones death and then it happens. She fell in love before and the man was killed right in front of her and after the elevator episode she is scared that Liam could be someone that she could love and she doesn’t want to because she doesn’t want another good man to die. Since the elevator she is always on his mind even when he is back home in San Francisco. He knows that mages need to be stopped and if going to New York and helping Grant fight them also allows him to be with her, great.
Lara fights what she feels so hard, but you can only fight love and True Mates for so long. True Mates between a lycan and witch is practically unheard of, but fate has plans of her own and I believe that these 4 True Mate couples are going to be used for something major in the future and have a lycan/witch mated pair is going to be world changing.
So, we have a hot couple, a dangerous foe, a battle, another kidnapping, and several new characters. There also is hurt feeling in the name of love.
This book has it all and be prepared to yell at your reading device when they make you feel all the feels. I’m excited for the next book and cant wait to see who the next couple will be!!

#Review – Princess of the Damned (Skeleton Key) by Wendy Knight

27874383

 

Skeleton Key Book Series
One Skeleton Key. Endless Adventures.
https://skeletonkeybookseries.com

Landon has never seen his own reflection. He saw hers instead. He grew up watching this girl in the mirror grow with him. Grew up memorizing every feature, every movement, every horror she endured. He can see into her palace, into the darkness she’s trapped in.
When he was little, he told his parents about her. They thought she was an imaginary friend, and they humored him.
But she didn’t go away.
And when Landon was seventeen, he fell in love with her.
She is a captive of the Queen of the Damned.
Now he’ll risk everything to try to save her—his life, his home, his entire world.
Bloody Mary
The queen in the mirror.
Bloody Mary
Waiting to steal your soul.
Bloody Mary…

 

Goodreads

 

What a unique spin on the Bloody Mary stories. This is a YA novel that can be read as a standalone but is part of a series. Landon is 17 and grew up watching this mesmerizing girl in the mirror…that no one else can see. Elizabeth is said girl in the mirror. She held captive in the Isle of the Damned by Bloody Mary. She can feel Landon and his strength. She has been held captive for so long everything tends to run together. Things start to go awry and the Isle of the Damned and Earth are in trouble. Landon is called on for an important mission and Elizabeth finds her true strength and calling. This is truly a twisted tale that is the emotional rollercoaster you come to expect with teenagers. However, there are twists to this ghost story that you won’t see coming and these will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. This story touches on depression and how they overcome these obstacles. The characters and world building are great. You won’t go wrong with this story. I was not aware at the beginning that this is a novella for the Skeleton Key series but am looking forward to reading more!

#Review – Immortal Hearts of San Francisco box set by Susan Griscom

33021485

Enter a world of temptation and lust, where rock stars are not only gorgeous and sexy, but they’re also vampires. These books are hot and sexy, and romantically addicting.

Tempted by a Vampire
Cian DeMarco, has lived in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay for the past seventy of his two-hundred and twenty years of his existence. Happily–or so he thought, preying on a different woman as often as his heart desires. Until the beautiful Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front-row tables in Club Royal where he and his band mates perform once a week. The scent of her blood has him completely undone and he’s unable to contain his desire for her.

Magdalena has a new job and a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco. Everything is just the way she’s imagined it could be… until she and her girlfriend find their way into an up scale night club and she’s suddenly swept off her feet by a member of the rock band. Mesmerized by his gaze, his scent penetrates and embraces every cell of her body and she can’t deny her own desires for him.

A temptation they can’t resist, leads to a future they never imagined as sparks ignite between the two until a threat from Cian’s past returns to wreak havoc on Cian’s and Magdalena’s lives. Will the desire to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe?

Captivated by a Vampire
She’s a vampire. He’s human and the best investigative reporter in the city. Their worlds mix as well as oil and water, but their attraction to each other is electric.

Josh Barrett knows his priorities—reporting the news as quickly and accurately as possible by day, drinking himself into a self-loathing stupor by night. His workaholic tendencies can’t completely mask the broken, depressed man he is inside. The horrific night that changed his life forever and left him broken-hearted and alone is forever fresh in his thoughts. But the torture is no less than he deserves. Until a beautiful, sexy, and utterly mysterious woman enters his life and changes everything. Chelle is absolutely enchanting, her allure captivating and the reporter in him is determined to learn all of her secrets.

Newly turned vampire Chelle Masterson only wants to find her place. Her unrequited love and devotion for her maker Lane has left Chelle broken, vowing to never fall for any man again. She’s determined to find her way in the scary new world of the immortals and begs for the chance to prove herself—to prove that she’s capable of surviving without the others. Unfortunately, she meets trouble head-on with her very first victim and ends up face to face with a very charming and handsome stranger. He seems to only want to help, but can she trust him?

As Josh slowly wins Chelle over, she decides to utilize his skills as a reporter to help uncover her past—a dark past that she cannot remember, but one she desperately needs to learn. Being around him is addicting, their connection undeniable, and she finds her will to keep him at arm’s-length dwindling.
The simple act of a Good Samaritan spirals into an obsession—much more than either of them thought possible. Their love becomes unfathomable, but it may not be enough to overcome the hurdles standing in their way…

Rocked by a Vampire
He’s dangerously sexy, insufferably arrogant, rude, and complicated as hell, yet what he reveals to her makes it impossible to stay angry and she can’t stop her growing desire for him.

Lane, has always walked in his brother’s shadow. And for good reason. There are monsters that plague his mind. Demons that once destroyed him. Broke him. Now, his desire for Vanessa torments him, igniting those revenants whenever he thinks of her. He’s desired her for months, but he hates what she is—what she stands for. Can the witch he loathes be the one to tame his demons?

Goodreads

Love these books!!!!

Tempted By a Vampire
“Vampires are real you know”… Just when you think you have it all under control, fate steps in and throws a wrench into everything you thought you knew. This is what happens when Magdalena plays it safe. But this is where the story begins. Her friend gets her to let loose and when she does she meets Cian (Kee-yan). He’s a hot singer in a band that plays at the local bar. Cian is a vampire and has lived for many years. He has found a comfortable existence that makes him feel just a little less of a monster. He sees Magdalena and fireworks explode. They are both drawn to each other. Eventually Cian entrusts Magdalena with his secret but then things go from good to complicated in 2.4 seconds. All of a sudden she is faced with many things paranormal and everything that she has ever known comes crashing down. Fate knows how to mess with people and definitely knows how to shake things up! Paranormal romance with all the right twists and turns. Love Tempted By a Vampire!

Captivated By a Vampire
This author has a way of getting you to like a book then giving you the second one to make you like the next one more. This is exactly what happened to me. I read Tempted By a Vampire and really, really liked it. But then I get my hands on this baby and love this story even more! This story is about Chelle and Josh. We meet Chelle in Tempted and she is the one that Lane turned into a vampire…not by choice. Chelle and Lane have lots of history and Chelle is finally getting out on her own. Josh is an investigative journalist, and a mere human, that is given an assignment that has him questioning himself. When Chelle and Josh meet they have strong connection. As things unfold, Chelle starts remembering her past, her parents, and the circumstances surrounding her parents death. As these things come to light she and Josh start confiding in each other and find that their pasts aren’t so different and they are more alike than they thought. Now they have to figure out if they can be good for each other. But this is not where this story ends. Not even close! There is a ginormous twist that will make your head spin and is absolutely worth the read. When you get to this part, you will understand completely what I mean. There is this perfect balance of love and hate. It’s full of bada$$ery and is soooooooo HOT!

Rocked By a Vampire
Rocked my soul! A rockin’ test of wills! This is Lane’s and Vanessa’s story…and what a story it is. Both of them are incredibly hard headed and always at each other’s throats. Although, they secretly like each other. *wags eyebrows* They both think the other doesn’t like them because of being a vampire or a witch but they share a connection that they cannot deny. This is an absolute test of wills between the two and the rollercoaster of emotion that follows is intense to say the least. Both start to bring the other out of their shell then all hell breaks loose. Vanessa and Lane are both very strong characters and watching them clash and come together is inspiring. This story is sweet, erotic, and satisfying.

We have followed these characters in Tempted By a Vampire and Captivated By a Vampire. They can be read as standalones but to truly appreciate these characters I suggest you read from the beginning. The author is incredible at making these characters evolve in a way you can’t rip away from. They go through the same emotions most people go through and therefore make them more real (even though they are vampires and witches, lol!). This series gets better and better as it continues.

#WOTR #Review Mack (Black Mountain Pack) by Miranda Lynn

Mack (Black Mountain Pack)

 

His missing sister or his mate?

Casey grew up in the foster care system and it wasn’t easy. A whirlwind of events after she ages out shows her why. Her repressed shifter side emerges with the help of her soon to be mate and his pack. She does her best to learn who and what she as while under the pressure of being hunted by her biological father and his pack.

Mack has been searching for his adopted sister for years after her kidnapping and thinks he has finally found her. His shifter side on the other hand thinks they have found their mate. Fate throws them together in the midst of an oncoming battle and Mack lets instinct take over and follows his heart.

When the truth comes out the mating instinct takes over and together Mack and Casey change the rules of shifter laws once again.

 

Goodreads

 

Shifters! Need I say more?! This is your must read shifter book! Some shifter stories seem to be along the same lines but this one goes beyond what we think we already know. These packs are different than what we all know. They are comprised of many different types of shifters/species. Many were hunted almost to extinction and have now come together to help their cause. There are many packs hiding in plain sight.

Casey has had a terrible childhood growing up in the foster system and being treated differently because of some of her heightened senses. She is living on the street but with the help of her friend she is taken care of. One night this all changes. She discovers that she is actually a shifter. She is taken in by the Black Mountain Pack. Little does she know she was once part of the pack…and another pack. She is the cause of an impending war with this other pack. She has to learn very quickly about what she is and how to handle this life that she didn’t know existed.

Mack is part of the Black Mountain Pack and has been looking for his long lost sister. But when he finds Casey they find out that they are not siblings but are destined to be mates. We also see the struggle he goes through to help her with her new found life.

Mack is a very fast paced, action packed, and HAWT book. This is the first book in the series and I have already begun to beg the author for the next. Anxiously waiting on pins and needles for the sequel. Check this out. You won’t be sorry.

#Review – Monster Mine, Fear University #3 by Meg Collett

 

 

I, Sunny Lyons, am chasing my best friend’s ghost.

Or at least I thought I was until Ollie calls me on the phone and tells me to come to Anchorage, Alaska. We find her in a renovated warehouse surrounded by halflings and Hex, her father and the greatest aswang warrior who has ever lived.

While trying to protect Ollie from the people who want to use her as a weapon, I stumble across a secret the halflings will kill to protect—a secret that could save the man I love. I may be the Cowardly Lyon, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to protect my friends—even if it kills me.

 

My name is Ollie Volkova, and I am not broken.

Though my friends may say otherwise after I spent three weeks with a sadistic madman. They think I’m crazy, but when a monster called the Manananggal surfaces on the outskirts of Anchorage, my father offers to tell me about my mother in exchange for my help in hunting down the winged creature. It’s a deal I can’t pass up. Not when my mother’s past is so important to my future.

But the more I learn about her, the more I discover about my monster’s soul, and when my father reveals the final, darkest truth, the decision I make will change the course of my life.

 

*Warning: Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.*

 

Goodreads

 

Truths and lies, twists and turns…Fate. Ollie was kidnapped and tortured. Her friends are on a never ending hunt to find her, to help her. Turns out that Ollie has reunited with her father who she learns isn’t all the monster that everyone believes him to be, at least that is what she is trying to figure out. She learns so much about her mom and how her parents came to be, why her mother left, and why her father keeps fighting. Sunny is with Luke and Hatter looking for Ollie. Ollie reaches out to them and they come to the sanctuary that Ollie is at.

So many demons…Luke is dealing with the truth about Ollie being a halfling, Hatter is dealing with his manic episodes, Sunny is dealing with trying to protect everyone, and Ollie is putting her pieces back together.

The story goes back and forth between Ollie’s and Sunny’s POV. You are totally immersed in this story. Ollie is struggling with deciding where she belongs. With her father, Hex, and the halflings or if she needs to go back to Fear University. The lesser evil, right? They are all faced with major decisions, they fight with themselves and their demons to do what is right.

The story is jam packed with…with everything. Action, love, and all around badassery. There are so many warring emotions that you can’t help but to feel like you are right in the middle.

The Fear University series is one of my favorites and the author did not disappoint with Monster Mine!

#Review – The Experiment of Professor Polgas by Sarah Brownlee

The Experiment of Professor Polgas

 

If you were an animal, what would you be? This is the question Blaise, Ash and Dinah unexpectedly stumble upon during the summer holidays when they enter a strange internet café and a mysterious woman asks them to take an online test to discover their inner beast. They are happy to oblige. Online tests are always fun and this one comes with its own special perks.

But what they don’t realise is that not far away, in the heart of London, a mad professor is watching them. Professor Polgas is preparing something; something that will change them forever; something that will have them on the run for their very lives …

This fantasy novel from Sarah Brownlee is a thrill ride of twists and turns, ready to surprise at every corner and sure to delight both children and adults alike.

 

Goodreads

 

Great storytelling of how the Morphers came to be! You don’t have to read the other two novels in order to enjoy this one. Although this is aimed to a younger teenage audience it is nice to see how the Morphers came to be. This shows how the trio came upon the experiment with Professor Polgas. This is to find out what your inner beast is. The teens are then given an opportunity to participate in the experiment. When they make this decision to be a part of this they have no idea how this will impact not only their lives but everyone else as well. After the experiment there was no direction as the hall was sabotaged. They then find out that there are others that were part of the experiment that need help too. They go on this coming of age journey. They find themselves and their animal within. There is a balance for all things. The good and the bad. They have to choose where they stand and how they will protect that. This is a fun story that will get the other books a re-read so that I can enjoy the past with the present. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to many more.

#Review #Shifter #Alpha Romancing The Alpha (True Mates 3) by Alicia Montgomery

***Can be read as a standalone billionaire werewolf shifter paranormal book**
In the next installment of the True Mates series, New York Alpha Grant Anderson meets his match in feisty New Jersey Alpha, Francesca “Frankie” Muccino.

New Jersey Alpha Francesca “Frankie” Muccino never had it easy. Alpha of her ragtag clan, head of her family, and manager of their ailing restaurant business, she’s got a lot on her plate. When a handsome, sexy, and very naked Lycan shows up on her doorstep, sparks immediately fly, but it’s one more complication she can’t handle.

Escaping from a kidnapping attempt by his enemies, New York Alpha Grant Anderson finds himself in New Jersey territory. He’s immediately drawn to the plucky and spirited Frankie, and has no qualms about going for what he wants – her, in his bed. The Jersey Alpha won’t be an easy catch, but Grant is determined to tame the wild she-wolf.

Danger brings them together as the evil mages come back for their revenge, determined more than ever to take Lycans down. Thirsty for retribution, they have taken in a new ally, one that’s closer to the New York clan and could finally bring them the victory they want. Frankie is caught in the middle of the war between the New York Clan and the mages and Grant will do anything to protect her. Can he keep her safe and win her over, or will the mages and their mysterious ally tear them apart?

Romancing the Alpha is a full-length (over 70,000 words) billionaire werewolf steamy paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series world. To understand the elements, I recommend you read “Fated Mates” and “Blood Moon” before this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Grant Anderson is the alpha billionaire of New York. He is trying to keep the lycan safe safe from the mages.
Francesca Muccino, to her family and friends, is one of the only female alphas to led a pack. She is New Jersey’s alpha, that is the New York packs neighbor, and she meets Grant by running into him literally like with her car, after he’s been drugged and kidnaped.
Though this is Grant and Frankie’s first meeting, it’s not the first time we are meeting her, we met her in book one when she saved Alynna from a group of catty women at her coming out ball.
Not only is Frankie the alpha for New Jersey, she along with her brothers, runs a Italian Restaurant that has been in her family for generations.
Even though they’ve never met Grant caught her scent the night of the ball and hasn’t stop thinking about the mysterious woman with the yummy smell.
In this story we not only have the mages trying to kill off the alpha, we also have a group of lycan working with them to try and take over New York. Oh, and we have a delusional female that thinks Grant is in love with her.
Frankie has major high walls around her heart where men are concerned and I have to say if I was in her place I’d say forget men and switch sides!! Lol, but seriously it takes hard work on Grant’s part to get her to see that he has real feelings for her.
Babies being born, surprise trips to Italy, hot alpha sex, kidnappings, killer mages, this book has it all and I can’t wait for the next one!!

#Review #Shifter Blood Moon (True Mates 2) by Alicia Montgomery

In this exciting continuation to the True Mates Series, Human Liaison Cady Gray and Second-in-Command Nick Vrost are drawn together after a night of passion.

Despite growing up in the world of the New York Lycan clan, Cady Gray still feels like an outsider looking in. She’s built walls around her, to protect herself and the clan, harboring a deep secret from her past that threatens her future. The clan’s sexy Beta shifter has always intrigued her, but he’s kept his distance, that is, until one innocent dance.

Nick Vrost has wanted Cady for years, but kept his own desires at bay for the sake of the clan and his family. As second-in-command of the New York clan and heir to the Vrost fortune, it was his duty to marry a suitable high-ranking Lycan female and produce a child to carry on the line. After ignoring Cady for years, one touch ignites something he can no longer control and he may have to choose between family obligation and his long-simmering desire for the quiet beauty.

When a near-catastrophic event forces them to confront their attraction, they find that one night simply isn’t enough. However, the New York clan is facing its biggest challenge yet and incidents attacking Lycans in the city are increasing. Cady’s life is put in danger, but evidence begins to link her to the attacks. But, who is behind all these threats and will the Lycans survive?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Omg!! So book 2 picks up where book one ends, Alynna and Alex’s wedding.
Cady Gray is the Alpha’s Human Liaison, sort of like his executive assistant. They’ve known each other since they were kids because her father held that position for his father.
Nick Vrost is the beta of New York and head of security. These two have danced around each other for years. Nick has kept his distance because the alpha thinks of her as a sister and Cady because she didn’t think that Nick was interested.
One thing I found out in this book; True Mates are not only a rare thing but apparently a very magical thing that all magic beings feel.
Anyone can be a True Mate to a lycan, it doesn’t have to be two lycan.
So many things happen in this book. Witches are introduced further, we find out who was behind the attempts on Alynna life, we met Nick’s grandfather who gives him a ultimatum to find a wife and have children or he is going to be out of the will.
Oh, and Cady and Nick start dream walking!!
I think the struggle that Nick has to go through, of whether he follows his heart or listens to his grandfather is a tough one. I am so glad that I would never have to go through that.
Cady mother returns and it isn’t a happy return as she is a witch and witches and lycan do not get along. She also has given a ultimatum, that Cady will leave the employ of them or it will be forced. Her mom, is not a good woman, in fact why don’t we just call her a power hungry b***h. She works with a evil blood mage who is out to get the True Mates, because he hates lycan and because of the magic that makes a True Mated pair.
I love Cady and Nick when they are together, they’re so sweet. The chemistry between them is off the charts too!! There is a scene in the hotel during the blood moon wowza, that was a hot one!!!

#Review #Shifter Fated Mates (True Mates #1) by Alicia Montgomery

A secret Lycan world, hidden in plain sight. An outsider suddenly drawn in…She can’t resist him, but he knows he can never have her…

Private investigator Alynna Chase is drawn in to the world of werewolf shifter clans when she encounters charming and sexy Lycan, Alex Westbrooke.

For centuries, werewolf shifters have moved among human society undetected, hiding in plain sight. The New York clan, hiding behind the powerful Fenrir Corporation, has ruled the East Coast for over two centuries, holding great power and position in both human and Lycan hierarchy.

Alynna suddenly finds herself in the center of this secretive society world when her true heritage is revealed – a full-blooded Lycan, born of the fabled True Mate pairing between her human mother and powerful Alpha father. Drawn deeper into their world, she feels a magnetic pull towards Alex.

As Alynna takes her place in Lycan high society, Alex knows he could never have her. He’s a newcomer to New York and a member of the current Alpha’s security team, making her beyond his reach. But the attraction between them is too powerful, and he risks everything to have her.

However, a threat to the clan and Alynna’s life draws them closer together, and Alex will do anything to protect her, even risk getting too close and defying Lycan hierarchy.

With so many things at stake, will their affair end in disaster or have these two lonely souls found what they’ve been looking for?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Ok, I love shifters and anytime I’m introduced to a new series I’m really happy. This new story doesn’t disappoint either!!
Alynna Chase is a 22 year old PI living in New York, when she out following a client one night her life changes forever.
Suddenly she is thrown into the life of shifters, little did she know she is one of them, and she is a important one at that.
Alynna finds out that what she thought about her not having a father was wrong, she has a brother who is the Alpha and she is the child of a True Mated pair.
In this world lycan can’t always have children, but if it is a True Mated Pair they will pregnant almost immediately. A True Mated Pair is rare, lycans go ahead and marry others, because of it. A child of this pair is truly rare.
Because she has just found out what she is and because she’s practically lycan royalty her. Alpha brother assigns a security detail to keep her safe until she is introduced to lycan society, one of those bodyguards is Alex Westbrooke.
He is also the reason she now because when she first met him is when she had her very first shift.
Ok so these two together, soooooo HOT. I mean just the scent of each other drives them wild!!
Though they are attracted to each other Alex can’t get over the fact that she is higher up the lycan ladder than him so he’s not good enough for her. They also have someone out there trying to kill her!!! It’s not a case off will they or won’t they, it’s a case of will they pull it together to last.
Every shifter story is different, some good some some not, this one is good and I can’t wait to see who’s behind the assassination attempts.
