#WOTR22 #paranormal #Shifters #DoubleReview #ReleaseDay #NewRelease – Forbidden Destiny, Lee County Wolves book 6 by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Destiny (Lee County Wolves Book 6) by [Teresa Gabelman]

Devon Stark was a loner. Moving from wolf pack to wolf pack wasn’t as exciting as it once had been. Having to follow rules wasn’t easy for him, but his respect for the Foster brothers and their new alpha, Dell Farris, made it tolerable. As the Lee County Wolves merge with the Kingsman pack Devon realizes that he was exactly where he was meant to be, especially when a beautiful newcomer catches his eye.

After being saved from a life of constant abuse, Jamie Lee was ready for a better life for herself and unborn child. Even though being unmated and pregnant was frowned upon in most packs, the Lee County Wolves had welcomed her without question. Jamie vows to find her own way among the pack because never again will she suffer under the hand of any man.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Gosh it seems like forever since we read Leda and Taz.  I forgot how much I loved this town of shifters and friends to the VC Warriors.

Jamie survived a LOT with Leda’s old pack. She has many scars for her abuse under the hands of Minor.  But she is strong and thriving as well as she can in the town given her unmated and pregnant status.

Devon is a player.  I mean he owns his past.  He ignores rumors and lives life.  When he saw Jamie, he knew she was different, but he wasn’t ready to admit it until this book.  When he went to deal with Malcom is when he realized his true intent for Jamie.  Malcom is going to be a good book and I am excited for who I think his mate will be.

The couple have a slow burn relationship.  He is treading lightly given the abuse she has gone through with a controlling and abusive shifter.  He wants her to know she can trust him and lean on him for everything.

When they both open their eyes, they are wondering can it all be that simple to move on together when her past comes back to claim their right with the “old ways”.  ANYONE who knows this pack should know how they feel about old ways…lol

I loved the story and how it moves the town farther and farther along.  I can’t wait for Malcom.  He needs some forgiveness even though no one blames him for what happened to Jamie in the past except himself.

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

It has been so long since I have seen the Lee County Wolves and I so needed this.

Devon is a ladies’ man can get any girl but never keeps them. That is until Jamie Lee catches his eye for the first time. Jamie Lee is with Leda’s old pack. Jamie did what she could to help her pack no matter what the price was. Minors abuse to her caused deep scars.  Is Devon able to show Jamie how she deserves to be treated and protect her.  Will Jamie Lee see that not everything you hear about someone is the truth and learn to trust Devon.

The things Devon does for not only Jamie Lee but her brother, Malcolm, is heartwarming. This is not an insta-love book but more of a slow burn. Devon was amazing when trouble comes knocking on Jamie Lee’s door but Jamie is never the one to sit back and watch.  When she decides to take things into her own hands Devon about flips.

I loved getting back to this pack and town.  The town keeps growing and progressing. It was great to see all the pack and learn more about some of the new pack members.  I have to say I’m excited to learn more about Malcolm and meet his mate.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I love this series and it’s an auto buy on eBook and audio whenever they come out.  I love the characters and the story line.  I especially love how the storyline is ever evolving.  The series doesn’t get “stale” because the world is always moving and growing.  The bad guys get worse, but the Warriors get better and better.  Don’t get me wrong Jared is still my favorite BUT he gets competition at times.

This is not a stand alone but a novella deep in the series…like way way deep in the series.

This is a short novella that allows us to have a brief insight into the Warriors and their Mats.  Unfortunately, not all the mates and warriors were the focus, but the main starter characters were, and I was ok with that.  We see Nicole and her Mates raising money for the Social Services she works for.  They always have some hijinks and shenanigans for sure and pull Sloan along kicking and screaming.  But this book Becky gave us some insight to her choices and those of Sloan that made me get a bit teary!! Steve and his family were so sweet but seeing this young punk grow into a good father makes my heart happy.

If you are a fan I know you will read it and if you haven’t’ started Grab Damon, Book 1.  Fall down the rabbit hole with the rest of us!

#WOTR21 #6YearFamily #AuthorSpotlight – Teresa Gabelman

Teresa Gabelman

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Love family, reading, writing, meeting book peeps and my animals. Sums me up pretty well.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

Definitely the books that follow the first one in a series. The longer the series the harder it gets for me and yet, it’s me who makes it hard by adding more and more characters. LOL!

What comes first? The plot or characters

Definitely characters for me. The plot goes on as a I write. I’m not a plotter at all. I have an idea of how the story will go and end. Tried plotting but the characters don’t like it and change the plot as they laugh at me for trying. So, yeah, I gave up on plotting.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Sherrilyn Kenyon

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What is Acheron’s address? What is Acheron’s phone number? Yep, that’s pretty much it. If you have read Acheron then you will know why I want this important information….but remember….he’s mind. 😉

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

The blurb which is from hell.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Meeting so many amazing people who love books as much as I do!

What is your definition of success?

When someone writes to tell me how much one of my books has helped them through a difficult time. Nothing better!

Charger (Protectors #16)

Charger O’Neil knows nothing but chaos. As a Dark Guardian dealing with the underworld, mayhem is to be expected. Not only is it part of the job but also his life.

With his team falling apart, Charger has an important decision to make. Stay or get out while he still can. Staying means he’ll bring down the one person he’s ever cared about but walking away means he could lose her forever.

At a crossroads, Charger faces options he never saw coming. All his life, he’s ridden the line between good and evil. Now, after so many years of the battle, one single decision could change his course, pushing him to the one side he never thought he’d be on.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

So this book is the first time I am left feeling happy and sad.  Happy because Charger finally opened his eyes and sad because the book isn’t given a full HEA.  We will get it, but it will be in Book 17 AKA Raven’s book which is after Lana, The Mate’s book 16.5.

Now lemme tell ya, this book is packed full of stuff.  I mean we meet a whole new cast of characters who are part of the Dark Guardians…sniff…Jake…sniff.  We meet some not so great new characters too…..yeah I’m look at YOU SONYA!!!  (High 5’s Raven)  But friends can we talk about all the yummy and what it can mean for the future books because …yeah again don’t wanna spoil anything.  But uhm Creed, yes please and I wanna be besties with Chantel!!!

I don’t want to say a lot because this ride is an amazing one.  We see Daniel have a vision, but something is off with it.  We see Charger realize Raven is the woman for him along with getting his backstory as to why he disrespected her all those years ago.  We see Raven standing up for herself and proving to EVERYONE she is a badass no matter what gender she is.  We see Jared embracing Raven as a fellow Warrior but still protecting her like the dad he is. Oh Jared!!!

I am really excited about this huge series twist this book brought about.  We had twist when we met the witches, and this book is another big plot twist for the Warriors.  Lots of changes will be happening and new cast of crazy characters will be joining.  I, for one, am here for it!!!  This series NEVER gets dull because Teresa has the ability to add new and vital changes to the world to keep it fresh and exciting for us the readers.

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #Series #Saga #Vampires #SpinOffSeries – Pam, The Mate Series book 3 by Teresa Gabelman

Pam (The Mate Series, #3)

During her journey to protect her son from those who would exploit him, Pam realizes it isn’t Daniel who needs help, but herself. With the help of her mate and son, a path leads her to the life she was meant to have—without the horrors.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was really looking forward to this book but kinda feel it was just as much Daniel’s book as it was Pam’s book.  This book was Pam dealing with her past that also affected her son Daniel and mate Duncan.  We find out even more about Kenny, what he did we didn’t know about, and who he was in business with we didn’t previously know.  Like dude was so bad!!

We also see Duncan trying too be a badass warrior but also dealing with his son and mate’s need to know and not know what is happening in the world.  We see Daniel coming to terms with what makes him special plus what may be his downfall.  We see Pam struggling as a mom, wife, social service employee and so much more.  She wants her family to be safe and her friends to be ok, but she is also losing control of everything around her.

The book was good as it moved us forward in the world.  We see Duncan and Pam reaffirming their love and commitment to each other, but we also see the struggles that being parents have on them.

I loved getting to know grown up Daniel.  I can’t wait for his real book even though I am sure it’s a ways off since he is not ready for “grown up stuff” yet.

I loved the movement in the story line of Charger and Raven.  I am eagerly awaiting that book in my greedy hands!!

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 Melinda

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

This series has me cracking up.  I enjoy seeing more and more of all these witches, familiars and shifters. These are great quick reads and pick me ups. The things Bruce gets up to I’m telling you he would keep any witch on their feet.

Wicked’s past is once again landing on her front porch.  This time it brings a witch named Angel and her familiar Rook.  As if Bruce couldn’t make enough mischief himself let’s just add Rook the blue crow wearing 3D glasses to the mix.

Things are truly looking up for Wicked she has more people in her life.  She knows she can trust them and they have her back.  We get to meet Robert and Angel and I could not be more pleased to see these two come into Wicked’s life again.

I have really enjoyed this world of Magic and Mayhem that Teresa Gabelman has tossed me into.  Cannot wait to read more of Wicked’s life.

Audio Book

Kindle Book

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.
