#ComingSoon #Review #Shifter Destiny Disgraced (Talon Pack Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize.

It’s been a year since the end of the war and the Unveiling things should be good for the Talon Pack, but something new is coming and it has all the packs on edge.
Mitchell is the Talon’s beta, he’s one yummy but grumpy wolf. He’s been keeping a secret from his family for years, nothing that could hurt them mind you, but it’s a secret from his family and it’s a doozy.
Dawn is a wolf from the Central pack, well they aren’t a real pack yet. She is a strong wolf who is a dominant maternal, but with know kids around she is lost.
Years ago it was the Central’s Alpha that started the war with the Redwood pack, during that war some of Central’s decided to take a chance and break away from their Alpha because they wanted no part of what he was doing. It was because of this war and the fact that the Alpha consorted with a demon that the Moon Goddess took away the pack bonds from the Central wolves that were able to escape, making them unable to mate, have new babies, and no hierarchy.
Mitchell has been helping to train the Central pack, since they can feel that soon the Moon Goddess will bless them with the pack bonds once again. He seen Dawn there and wants nothing to do with her, he also has seen her at the barista job in town and refuses to give in to the draw he feels.
Dawn thinks he’s yummy but knows he wants nothing to do with her, but that changes when she is attacked by a rogue wolf. They can deny their wolves any longer. Mitchell and Dawn realize that they have the potential to be mates, but neither is ready for a mate yet and decide to just be “friendly”. Lol.
OMG! Mitchell’s story before Dawn just killed me, talk about a tragic back story. When he tells Dawn about it, she realizes that even if she was ready to be Mitchell’s mate, he will never want a mate. It’s just crazy all around, but they finally get it together.
Ryan, promised a new big bad for us and she did not disappoint, the revelations that came out in this book came out of no where and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

#Review – Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance by Bella Roccaforte

Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance

 

The Beta of Blackhawk Pack, Mako would sacrifice virtually everything for his pack, including his life. But when a beautiful mage arrives to stand in as healer in the aftermath of near destruction of the pack, Mako is suddenly struck by the Hunger.

When Robin comes to the Blackhawk Pack, the last thing she expects is the Beta of the pack to claim her as his mate, something she has no time for. Her mission is to find and exact revenge on the anti-mage who killed her grandmother.

Robin and Mako fight their Hunger-fueled, primal attraction tooth and nail, while looking for answers and retribution in the midst of great danger for them and the pack.

Will Mako succumb to the legendary Wolf’s Hunger? And will Robin surrender to his mating call that’s becoming impossible to resist?

****
From New York Time’s Bestselling Author A.K. Michaels
A Wolf’s Hunger is a series of standalone Shifter books each with a HEA and absolutely no cliffhangers.
Full of passion, intrigue and Paranormal Romance. Jam packed full of suspense, romance, thrills and hot Shifters.

 

Goodreads

 

The plans we have for our life and what fate has in store for us never seem the same. Love me some Mako! The pack is in the middle of a terrible situation and they are being selective in who they trust with and within their pack. Robin, a mage, pops in unexpectedly and announces that she is their new interim healer. Mako starts in with the hunger and has no idea what this new feeling is. He has found his once in a lifetime mate. The pack was burnt by their previous healer/witch so they are skeptical of Robin. Robin, being the mage that she is and growing up in a pack, doesn’t trust the wolves. Mako and Robin fight the attraction but in the midst of this there is a traitor and the pack is being attacked. This is where I leave you with what the story is about. The push and pull between Mako and Robin is unmistakably hot and romantic. This author can take these incredible characters and pull you into their world while making you feel every iota of their rage and hate, passion and love. I was sucked in from the very beginning and could not put it down. Love, love, love me some Mako!

**This is a stand alone but I recommend reading Saint first as Mako picks up right where Saint leaves off. I believe that if you read Saint first some of the backstory will have more meaning for you. **

The characters in INK are very near and dear to my heart. Some are very closely fashioned after real people in the real world.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Loving Quinn: The Lone Wold Defenders Book 2 by Alicia Montgomery

Happy-go-lucky wolf shifter and hacker Quinn never saw the point of committing to just one person for the rest of his life. After all, with his devilish good looks and charisma, he could have any woman he wants. Any woman, except the sassy almost-witch Selena, who seems resistant to his charms. While he denies his attraction to the curvy redhead, his own animal craves her attention, and Quinn finds it difficult to stay away.

Having no magical talent meant Selena was at the bottom rung of her coven hierarchy. Mocked by her own family and pitied by the rest of her coven, she builds her own life away from them. When an offer comes that could finally give her the respect and standing she’s always wanted, it should have been easy to say yes. But a certain sexy and handsome Lone Wolf shifter has sent her into a tizzy, and she risks the chance of being welcomed back into the fold by giving into her own desires.

When Quinn’s past comes back to haunt him, it puts Selena in the line of fire and he’ll do anything to protect her. However, Selena has problems of her own and she finds herself having to choose between the life she’s always dreamed of or bet her heart on commitment-phobic Quinn. Staying together only means danger and pain, but can they really resist the attraction between them, which could end up imploding both their lives?

If you LOVE reformed playboy/virgin paranormal shifter romances, then READ this book!

Loving Quinn series is a paranormal romance novel with over 60k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan action and no cheating. It takes place in the True Mates Universe but works as a standalone novel.

Quinn is the Techie of Lone Wolf Security, he is also known as a ladies man or in today’s vernacular a man whore. However, there is something about the best friend of the brothers secretary that he’s drawn to he is going to be the one thing he never is with a woman, her friend.
Selena Merlin is a New York librarian and witch, but she’s a witch in name only because she was born without powers much to her dismay. Being a witch without powers means she’s low man on the witches totem pole and can be banished from her coven at anytime, so she is being forced into a arranged marriage by her father. She knows what type of guy Quinn is but believes him when he says they can be friends.
First off let me say arranged marriage?? What is this Victorian England?? I get it, I really do poor Selena is having to do something for the good of her family that she doesn’t want to do, we’ve all been put in that type of situation. She’s so use to doing things for everyone else and being last in the witch world, she finds it hard to put herself first when she’s in it.
Second, friends with Quinn? Uh, yes please!!! Lol!! I love these two finding their way with each other, the LOTR movie nights are really sweet!!! When they do decide to move it into something more it kills me that they hide it from their friends, Quinn’s family, and that she hasn’t told Quinn about the marriage deal or told her father that she’s not going through with it.
Speaking of Quinn’s family, man that is one humdinger of a plot twist. Nope, these lips are zipped you’re gonna have to read it.
Oh, and someone keeps trying to kill them!!
These are the questions that you’re asking yourself as you’re reading: Are Quinn and Selena Fated Mated? Does Quinn find out about the arranged marriage? Will Selena ever put herself first? Who’s are they trying to kill Quinn, Selena, or both?
By the end i was happily wore out, and laughing my tale off at Jolene and the epilogue. I can’t wait to see what Montgomery has in store for us with Connor, i just know it’s gonna be a beast.

#DoubleReview #NewRelease – Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4) by Sarah Noffke

Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4)

 

One man will kill to get back what belongs to him, even if he destroys himself in the process.

Mika Lenna, the CEO of Olento Research, won’t be deterred. Yes, the Lucidites have the upper hand, but he has something better. The one thing that can really stop them. The potential to create the rivalry to any werewolf. Mika has crossed the final threshold of humanity to do something that no human would dare do. But if it pays off, then for him, it will all be worth it.

The pack is stronger than ever, but still missing so many members. Still, they find a way to band together to create a cohesion they didn’t know in their past lives, the ones before becoming werewolves.

Meanwhile, the Lucidites are quickly making progress with a solution that might help the men assimilate with the wolf. However, will it come at a cost? The men have become accustomed to the wolf, and losing it may feel like leaving behind a part of themselves.
And finally, Adelaide has realized that her father’s death made her lose a part of herself. She dives deep to find a way to recover it, but will she surface, or much like her father, will she be lost forever?

In the final installment of the Olento Research series, the wolves must defend and those around them must decide if they’re willing to battle along beside them. The final fight won’t be nice or fair, especially when there’s so much at stake. Each wolf is hungry for victory, but will their maker be their death?

 

Goodreads

 

I absolutely love this series! I feel like I know these characters. They are a part of me, my tribe, lol! Adelaide is one of my most favorite characters ever. And combined with Rox (our resident hooker FBI agent), Zephyr’s pack of werewolves, and one of the nastiest supervillains makes for an intense read. All of the characters are trying to find their true self. They are tirelessly working on bringing the rest of the pack in when things take a turn for the worse. People are being tortured and are dying from Mika’s experiments. This has to be stopped and this crew is working on the solution. I feel the story is about overcoming self doubt, taking opportunities, and accepting second chances. Bad Wolf is nothing short of a page turner. There is never a dull moment within these pages. It’s action packed but with the sentimental touches that make this story absolutely special. The Olento Research series takes you on an extraordinary journey. I hope to see more of these characters in the future. Especially a certain couple. This is a must read!

**On a side note, I need to thank Sarah Noffke for giving us just a little more of Ren. Absolutely perfect. Sarah, thank you!**

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Sarah has once again written a great series.  This is the final book in the Olento Series and I have to say it is my favorite series this far.  Really how could it not be my favorite it has werewolves, lucidities, and a little essence of Ren.

I was on the edge of my seat flipping the pages needing to know if Adelaide and Zephyer were going to get all the wolves back or if Mika was going to end up with them all. As always Sarah comes up with the best evil villains and Mika was like no other. He was killing and torturing people in the name of getting what he wanted at whatever the cost.

To watch the relationships of the wolves, Adelaide and Rox was amazing. To see how the wolves have grown and started working better with one another to see the strengths and weakness of each one, yes even Zephyer has weaknesses. Watching Adelaide gain confidents and learn how to cope with things was heartwarming. I have to say my heart was breaking to watch what Rox had to endure.

I hope we are able to see the wolves, Rox and Adelaide again. As this one comes to a close I am excited to see what Sarah has instore for us next. I have a feeling it will be just as good as the others she has given us.

A few of my favorites:

How does she do that? Pretend so well? Everyone thought she was so hard, but nothing could be further from the truth. This was a girl who just wanted to be loved. To feel deserving of that love. And if anyone ever told her how incredibly brilliant and beautiful she was, inside and out, then she’d feel a lot different about herself.

You’re an extension of Ren. You say his lines as if they were your own. You follow his practices, since they are exemplary. And you’ve inherited his snarky nature. However, isn’t the real concern you have with the group the fact you don’t want them thinking you’re an imposter? Now that they know about him, they’ll know you’re impersonating. The power you pretend to wield is his. Isn’t the issue that you can’t let him go as long as you refuse to be yourself rather than him? Who is Adelaide Lewis? She is the daughter of Ren, but she isn’t him. Have you asked yourself how you’d act if you weren’t trying to keep him alive inside yourself?”

he respected these two women, whom he’d been reluctantly thrown to. They were stronger than most people he knew, but had a flippant style that he’d come to appreciate.

he’s found a way to communicate from wherever he is, so I don’t think you’ve seen the last of your father yet. If I know him, he’ll be watching over you for the rest of his existence.”

#WOTR #Review #Shifter Sanctuary by Teresa Gabelman

Drowning in debt, the owner of Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary, Gemma Stone, is as exhausted as she is determined. Not only does she have to win over frightened, injured wolves daily, but she’s tired of those threatening to close her sanctuary down. It’s not until Eric Jackson walked into her life that she sees a light at the end of the lonely tunnel she’s been traveling. To the surprise of both, they have more in common than either could have ever imagined.

 

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

So this is a little novella with one of my favorite topics……..
SHIFTERS!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!! I love shifter stories and this is no different and it’s from one of my favorite authors.
Gemma Stone runs a wolf sanctuary in a little Kentucky town. She is a strong woman who goes at it alone with only her volunteer Larry, but it was her grandfather’s dream and now it is hers.
Eric Jackson comes to Gemma impersonating a Fish and Wildlife officer who is investigating her, but what he really is is a Alpha wolf shifter looking for a rogue shifter.
Whoa mama do the sparks fly off of these as soon as they start speaking!! I mean come on, these attraction these guys have is killer!! For a short little novella Gabelman does a great job of showing how fast mates can find each other and she pulls it your heartstrings by showing a awesome bond between Gemma and her wolves at the Sanctuary.
Gabelman has one little problem with this book though, Eric has brothers and I want to know more!!! Lol, she’s going to be busy because I won’t be the only one!!
If you’re looking for a peak into the shifter mind of Teresa Gabelman this is the novella for you.

The Vilka's Servant: Scifi Alien Romance (Shifters of Kladuu Book 1)

 

Kladuu is a planet full of shape-shifting clans.

It’s also the best-kept secret from the clans’ greatest enemy: Humans.

Vera is the sole female engineer in her department aboard the Zynthar International Space Station. Fighting against sexist prejudices is the only battle Vera has known until a band of rogue aliens attack the space station, taking her and a group of women hostage. It’s a battle between life and death when Vera and the women are forced into servitude on an unknown planet full of shape-shifting alien wolves called Vilkas. Vera will do anything to escape, but the Vilka she works for is protective and loyal … and far too attractive.

Rayner is Beta of Clan Vilka on Kladuu. It’s a position he puts before all other aspects of his life, including love. But the more he gets to know his beautiful human servant, the more he recognizes the flaws in his clan’s way of life. Amidst the stirrings of a servant uprising, another serious threat lurks in the shadows, waiting to destroy all Rayner holds dear—including Vera.

When Rayner’s duties to his clan and his Alpha fall in direct opposition to protecting Vera—to protecting his mate—he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Even if the cost is betraying his people.

Even if the cost is his life.

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

Can you say SPIN OFF??!!!! Lone Wolf Defenders is a spin off of Alicia Montgomery’s Fated Mates series. We met Killian in the last book of the Fated Mate series Tempted by The Wolf. Killian one of three adopted brothers of Meredith from that book.
This series is about all the brothers and Killian being the first.
Killian is a lone wolf, a wolf with no family but his adopted family, no clan of his own. For those of you who don’t know Killian, his brothers, and Meredith were raised by a human who taught them skills to do several things, security, espionage, surveillance, protection, and if need be theft.
He and his brothers now work for Sebastian Creed and are running a branch of security called what else “Lone Wolf Security” and he and his brothers are being allowed to in New York because of this and because their sister is pledged to the New York Alpha.
Now that the scene is set, lets get down to business!!
4 months before his adopted father died Killian was on a job to steal back a lost tapestry for a country that was once war torn. While doing this job he met Luna. While originally he was just using her for the job he grew to really like her.
Things happened ( No I’m not telling you what, you gotta read the book!) and they were torn apart.
Now they are once again in the same city and a chance meeting has them together again.
Luna hates Killian after the way things happened between them, she also is still in love with him though she doesn’t what to be, and now she needs him to keep her safe. Killian has put Luna out of his mind but not out off his heart.
There are so many ups and downs in this book. Montgomery does a great job of keeping a reader on their toes!!!
These Lone Wolves could totally be alphas, that is how strong a lone wolf is.
Killian he has Luna best interest at heart, but totally thinks his way is the only way to get things done and she has no problem telling him how wrong he is.
After things are totally cleared up will they stay with each other? I’m not telling…………..
I will say this though, this new series is gonna be a good one these brothers are super yummy and and strong as heck.

#ThrowBack #Review #Paranormal #Shifter Big Bad Bite (Big Bad Bite Book 1) by Jessie Lane

The first book in the best-selling Big Bad Bite Series!

What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?

Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community. It’s important she hide her true nature from both humans and Others.

Right after moving to a new city, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. He’s an alpha werewolf determined to do two things: figure out exactly what Jenna is and have her all to himself.

As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world—the Other world.

Contains mature themes.

Ok, let me start off with I’ve never read any of Lane’s paranormal work before, just her military and MC, but I loved this! This series doesn’t just have shifters in it, but demons, vampires, and witches too. One Bad Bite is the first book in the Series of the same name. In this book we meet Jenna O’Conner, kickass new member of Wilmington’s SWAT team. With Jenna it’s a case of “looks can be deceiving” because her petite frame hides what’s really inside. She is a shifter, but no one outside of her mother and two uncles know, she’s been made to hide all her life because she is a hybrid and been told that the community of Others finding out would be a death sentence.
Jenna is written just like I like my heroines, tough! She is a girl who knows and goes after what she wants, which is a life. She knows she wants to be in law enforcement and does it, by assuring her mom and uncle that she will keep hidden. On Jenna’s first day she is sent out with her unit to handle a hostage situation, this is where she meets her partner Kent. At the situation she meets, Adam McPhee. Adam, hot, redheaded, motorcycle drivin’ Alpha wolf of North Carolina.
When Jenna finds out that Kent is a Demon, while they’re out after their shift and she takes off. She has been warned after all that any Other that finds out about her isn’t good. When she runs out of the bar who’s there? Adam, that’s who!! Kent tries to talk to her and tell her it’s ok, but she still runs and Adam chases. It’s during the chase that Adam discovers that she is a wolf!! This story has it all wolves, tigers, demons. Of course some of them are bad and the bad ones aren’t just bad; in my mind, they’re evil.
Adam and Jenna must work together, with her long lost family, to save another pack master. Along the way Jenna finds out not every Other wants hybrids dead. Adam finds out Jenna is no ordinary human-wolf hybrid, but a demon-wolf hybrid the only one on Earth. Together they find the piece that’s been missing in their life, each other.

To be the Pack Alpha is the greatest honor a wolf can receive, but also the greatest responsibility. Saint always put the law and the pack before himself, but when a mysterious woman arrives in town and his hunger becomes insatiable, all hell breaks loose.

Scarlet never fit in anywhere. Born without her wolf, she was sent away at birth for being a bad omen. Her bright red eyes were a dead giveaway that she wasn’t human either. After twenty-five years living as an outsider, her mother brings her home; there’s still no place for Scarlet among the pack, and she tries to go on the run…again.

Though an inexplicable force keeps Scarlet from leaving, is it her wolf? Or the handsome young Alpha she meets on the road?

Saint has found his mate, but will Scarlet find her wolf in time to save Saint from losing himself to his wolf forever?

Oh, the feels! A big bad Alpha with a strong female….SWOON! Saint is next in line to be Alpha. All of a sudden he feels something brewing in him. His wolf is a little out of control and is never satisfied. One night while in wolf form he comes across Scarlet. Scarlet is from this pack but was taken away as a baby because she was born without her wolf. Being born without your wolf is a bad omen for packs, or so they say. There is an intense attraction between these two with a romance that blossoms quickly but so pure. As they are trying to find her wolf, things get crazy. Rogue wolves and wicked witches. What more could you ask for? This story has it all. I fell in love with Saint and Scarlet as well as the side characters. The book is a standalone but has so much potential for more. I hope these other characters get to come out and play!

I have been many places and done many amazing things. My motto has always been that you can choose to watch life pass you by or be the one spinning the world. You have to get out and live. Life won’t come to you!

Writing is just one of my passions that I’m lucky enough to be able to express. I also love music, reading other people’s books, but most of all spending time with my kiddos.

The characters in INK are very near and dear to my heart. Some are very closely fashioned after real people in the real world. Many of the experiences that Shay has had actually happened, of course there haven’t been any murders – oh wait there were but not like in the book. That’s a whole other series!

INK is currently slated to be a 6 book series (0-5). I hope that you enjoy INK: Fine Lines and fall in love with Aiden and Eli just like I did!

#Review #WOTR – Call of the Raven (The Union) by Shawn Reilly

17661306

 

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.
A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love, he will die.
Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive the curse. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.
This becomes Asher’s biggest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help Asher change his fate?

Don’t resist. Fate is fate and things are meant to be. Or so they say…..

First, I must say that paranormal is one of my favorite genres. I love shifter books but sometimes things get a little redundant when they are all similar. Call of the Raven is so much more. There is a lot of world building and the author does a fantastic job. And some of the characters, well, they are a little intense but soooo relateable. Definitely not your normal shifter story.

Asher is the Keeper and is destined to die an early death once he falls in love. Grant is his predecessor and tried to set things in motion to break the curse. To try and avoid this fate Asher has closed himself off and vowed not to love or fall in love. With this he has neglected his family and society. 10 long years have passed and secrets are unfolding. Asher and his group of proteges are trying to find Grant’s daughter (that no one knew about) and Asher finds the woman who he has only seen in his dreams.

Things then get real sticky and the angle is not clear on who and what is really happening. The story keeps you guessing, constantly trying to figure it out. You will be as confused as the characters (in the best way possible) as you feel like you are right in the middle of the story. The hierarchy of the shifters and their society is completely different than what I have read in the past. This is truly a great start to what I expect to be a great series. I am looking forward to the 2nd book and more from this author!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired school teacher took me under her wing. After some tutoring and testing, she informed my parents that the reason I was having trouble in school wasn’t because I was dumb but instead dyslexic.
When my stepfather heard this, he decided to take me to a used bookstore with the belief that the best way to improve my reading skills was to read. Some of the books were hard to get through at first, but with his encouragement I refused to give up. We made many trips to that bookstore, and I especially loved the science fiction and fantasy sections.
Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, he told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did. My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.
I have over fifty books on my computer which I’ve written in various genres, all of which are waiting to come to life. Even though my ability to write has improved over the years, I am humble enough to admit that I cannot venture on this journey alone
