Taming The Dragon: Dragon Shifter Fire & Rescue (Sparks Of Desire Book 5) by [Valerie Twombly]

His past broke him.

Kadin’s siblings believe he only cares about pure dragon bloodlines and that is why he refuses to take a human mate. They don’t know about his dark past. A day centuries ago that changed him forever and left him crippled with fear. When he sees Avery, however, his dragon knows she belongs to him. The beast doesn’t care she’s human, but Kadin can’t forget his past.

She can heal him.

Avery has spent her life second guessing herself. From her body image, to allowing her brothers to convince her that an EMT was a more suitable job than a firefighter. When a shifter shows up at her station, she has no idea the impact he will have on her. Kadin is bigger than life and hotter than any fire she’s ever seen. When a friendly date turns into a night she will never forget, she’s left wondering why she can’t let him walk away.

When Kadin finally realizes he can’t live without Avery, he might be forced to do just that. Tragedy strikes not once but twice and threatens to break the couple apart forever.


Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I love this series and the lore about the dragon shifters in this series.  I love the family of shifters we have met and watched them all pair up with their mates.  Now its good old stubborn, hardheaded dragon shifter/fire chief Kaden.  He is finally over his sister marrying a human, but he refuses to do that.  For his people he needs to marry a pure bred or a halfling.  Too dang bad his dragon is not on board once he sees Avery.

Avery has been run over by all the men in her family.  They made her fee less then and really pushed her out of her love for being a firefighter and into being an EMT even though she was the best in her class.  When the human force asks a shifter to help them, she is stunned stupid at the hot man in front of her.  Too bad she is down on herself and believes no one like him would like someone like her.

Kaden and his dragon are smitten with Avery.  His dragon is ready to claim her but Kaden…remember when I said he was stubborn and hardheaded…well he won’t.  He pushes Avery away.

Kaden slowly reveals a history of loss the family is unaware which helps them understand him a little ebit better BUT they are still not happy he won’t accept his mate when she is perfect except for the fact she is a human …FYI only he has issue with that small detail.

Kaden and Avery have some turmoil with some bad people who do stuff that make Kaden and Avery face up to how they feel before they lose what they might have.

Kaden was a fun character to read.  He was sooo stupid and stubborn but yet he loves his family to hard.  Avery was just the perfect heroin.  She was unconfident but not annoying with her self-doubts.  She is sassy and loves his family.  I also loved her sister and her relationship.  Kelly gives Avery the confidence she needs along with Kaden’s sister Bella.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and dog, in Northern IL.

Audio Review 2022

I purchased this audio book. The narration does a great job changing the voices and bring smart ass Hunter to life!!  I have enjoyed him for this series.

Review from 2017

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

Oh Hunter!! I was waiting not so patiently for you and you did not disappoint me at all.The book starts with Hunter returning from that little incident on TV…ya know where he outted himself as a shifter to save VC Warrior, Jill. Everyone in town is mad except for Garrett. He is relieved that Hunter is back to help defend the pack from other alpha’s. They looked at what Hunter did as Garrett not having full control of his of his pack.

When Hunter returns he can FEEL eyes on him and is stunned to realize they belong to a pair of grey eyes he has tried to deny his entire life……

Emily has loved Hunter her entire life. She has put with the fact she is the town joke. Hunter took her to prom only because he was forced to other wise he never gave her the time of day….every other woman has gotten his “time” but not her.

Emily is over loving him and her confrontation causes Hunter to come to terms with the fact he loves Emily. However, with one of his brothers also loving her, ex drama of hers, the town being infiltrated by other packs and haters wanting to keep Emily and him apart, he has his work cut out for him.

Can I get an AMEN for Steve, Slade and Jill being in this book!! OMG Steve…for real I cant wait for him to fall in love. He made me giggle so many times this book. I mean must Shake it off right!!?? Jill and Slade were as adorable as ever.

Audio Review 2022

I purchased the audio book.

The narrator does a great job making the voices original for each character,  I think he does a great job voicing Hunter who is a huge pain in the butt in the best way.  LOL

Review from 2015

Received a copy for a honest review

I love me some Teresa Vampires soooo of course i will stoked to read some shifter stuff from her.

This book is a great look at how amazing Teresa writes for any paranormal person. You can see her style. Her alpha males are strong but her kick butt females are anything but weak.

So this book is about Janna who is a shifter who has never shifted because she has no clue about her other half. She is looking for a man who may have some answers for her. She and 2 other shifters stumble into the town when she is met by Garrett Foster…RAWR LADIES!! Garrett and Jenna fight each other every step of the way but both are drawn to the others inner wolf.

The story is a great, quick read. The fighting is awesome. The loving is HAWT annnnd the humor is a riot. I hope she writes more from this town of shifters. I want to see Marcus get his HEA and I am dying to know who will change Hunter into a one woman man.

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

The narration of the story was perfect.  Brian did a great job bringing the characters to life for me!!

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.

#wotr #attendingauthor #audiobook Into the Deep by Aspen Winters (Author, Publisher), Krys Janae (Narrator) 

The Ocean hides many secrets, and my family has uncovered one of them.

My name is Coralee Eldimire and I was dragged into the secrets my family has been keeping from me. The Eldimire Aquarium and Animal Sanctuary, was more than that. It was a testing site.

A testing site for shifters. The place I thought was made by hard work and passion was actually made by torture and the deaths of creatures I never knew existed.

I found this out the hard way that these shifters are more than they seem. They aren’t mindless or monsters…they were something more. The shark shifters that I had gotten to know only want one thing: freedom and I was their way out. Though it seemed they wanted me for more than an escape route.

These shifters wanted to keep me, and I was starting to have a hard time saying no. With my family trying to keep the shifters or kill them, I have my work cut out for me…and I may learn to be a stronger person on the way.



Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this audiobook by the author for an honest review

Coralee was working in her family business, in the local aquarium. Her mom was a scientist and working on different species of marine life. Her brother helped and Cora was mostly in charge of filing papers and small task to help her mom. But little did Cora know that behind the walls where she worked was a huge family secret that she didn’t know about, that there were shark coming into the aquarium and Cora was terrified of sharks, but that wasn’t all she didn’t know, those sharks where actually shifters. So will Cora ever find out that secret her family is keeping from her or will she be forever in the depths of their secrets. So this was my first shark shifters book and it didn’t disappoint it was soooo good 4 sexy shark shifters how much better can that get.

#WOTR22 #Paranormal #Shifters #Wolves #Witches #SpinOff #SeriesStarter – Rebel, Alumbra Pack Book 1 by AJ Renee

Rebel (Alumbra Pack Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

He’d long given upon finding his mate, but when he does, is she too broken to trust their bond?
Meeting boys after curfew should have been innocent fun, but it turned Rosalia’s life upside down. Escaping the werewolf compound wasn’t an option, so she did her best to survive the twisted hell she’d been dragged to. Her dreams of having a real chance at life had been smothered by guilt and the realization she was too broken, even if she ever did see her loved ones again.
Peter had nearly given up on finding his true mate, but a mission to rescue a pack member’s sister leads him to Rosalia. If he’d known why she’d been impossible to locate, he would have left the pack in his beta’s care and moved mountains to save her sooner.
He must find the strength to rein in his wolf’s need to claim her and give her the necessary space to heal. Her body, heart, and wolf are at odds, with merely a thin string keeping her tattered spirit from coming apart. Can Rosalia learn to trust Peter, or are the jagged, invisible scars too deep?


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I LOVED PETER!!  I mean I have loved him since meeting him in the Broderick series.  You do not have to read the Broderick series to read this book OR the following books in the series BUT I highly suggest it so you understand the relationships.

Peter…he is the best alpha.  He loves his pack and those he deems pack like the witches in the Broderick coven.  He is fierce in protecting those he loves.  He is happy with his life, but he yearns for his mate.  He is happy for Brandy and her siblings but…yeah why can’t he find HERE!!!  Our calm cool alpha is outta his mind lately and he is not sure WHY. He can’t focus and is just hot tempered which is not Peter.  When the pack and the coven go to save some women, he is beyond mad to see his mate there…in the room of abused and battered women AND a sister to Claudia.

Rosalie is the brave one of the group.  She has done lots of things that many would find disgusting to survive abuse and horrors.  When she realizes they are being rescued and its by her sister, she is overjoyed and then…..she sees him.  The large wolf is her mate. She is scared given she has seen how alpha tend to treat women.

Rosie and Peter have a lot to overcome but Peter becomes more the man we know and love.  He is doing everything to make sure she knows she is safe and wanted no matter what she as been through.  He is doing everything to put her at ease to him and his caring.  The waters these two navigate was pretty wicked at times but Peter never faulters.  GUYS I loved him even more!!!  GAH!!  PETER!!!

I am so excited for this series and absolutely love that the Brodericks are just as front and center in this series as Peter’s pack was in their story.  But I really wanna know whats up with Xander but Lea and Joel!! EEEEP!!!!

I cannot wait!!

#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.

#WOTR22 #Mystery #CozyMystery #Shifter #Audio – Pit Perfect Murder (Barkside of the Moon book #1) by Renee George: Narration by Dara Rosenburg

Pit Perfect Murder (A Barkside of the Moon Cozy Mystery Book 1) by [Renee George]

Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that’s no mystery!
(previously published as Pit Perfect in 2016)

When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.

Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it’s love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily’s first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.

Lily’s new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?

Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!

Pit Perfect Murder, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. A clean read full of humor and small town charm.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book with my credits.

Hello Pittie momma so of course I had to grab it.  Then when I saw the main character Lily is a shifter….uhm paranormal are my jam so yessssss score score score!!

I will admit I am not a giant mystery reader but I loved the format and the comedy of the story, so it hit me in the right spot.

Lily has been surrounded by sadness her whole life.  She leaves home to find a long-lost uncle she never knew existed.  Uncle/Cousin Buzz wasn’t so keen on keeping his niece/cousin in town buuut they start to bond.  If you wanna know the uncle/cousin and niece/cousin story line I guess you need to read the story.

Lily is wondering through town when a pit bull runs up and adopts her as her person.  Lily also meets her new friend, Smooshies, owner and smitten is a word you could use.  Parker is kind and gentle plus kinda hot for a human so when he is accused of murder……Lily can’t handle it and is off to use her paranormal powers to solve the case.  No offense but she really was an awful person in live…old Katherine. *Growls*

I really enjoyed the who-done-it and getting to meet the characters in the town.  I personally can’t wait to see Buzz settle down, but I really want to see Parker and Lily maybe *wiggles eyes* admit some feelings for one another.  But Parker’s dad was also the best ever.  Honestly other then the old bitty who died, I loved the town.  LOL

#Review – Quantum Entanglement: Part One (Legion of Supernatural Academy Series Book 1) by S.R. Watson and Ryan Stacks

Quantum Entanglement: Part One (Legion of Supernatural Academy Series Book 1) by [S. R. Watson, Ryan Stacks]

There are no such things as witches, warlocks, vampires, and shapeshifters … or so we thought! Before everything changed three days ago, we would have agreed with you.

Three days ago, we didn’t have supernatural abilities we couldn’t explain.

Three days ago, we weren’t being hunted for these abilities.

Three days ago, we weren’t being rescued and recruited into a supernatural academy.

We were two strangers. Only two of our kind. What happens when other supernatural beings find out that we exist?

Genesis and Elysian are quantum entangled for a singular purpose. Their recruitment to the Legion of Supernatural Academy is unexpected but vital to the future of humanity. This unique series takes the world of supernatural academies to new heights with twisted tales, suspense-driven fantasy, and self-discovery.


Review by  Kelly

A unique twist on the supernatural! It can be difficult to shake things up a bit when it comes to the supernatural community…but yay! These two did it! There are vampires, werewolves, witches, oh my! But when Elysian and Genesis, seemingly normal random college students start having weird things happen around them out of the blue, things start to get crazy! There is a lot of self-discoveries for both of them. They are strangers but connected. How exactly does that happen? Fate? What they find is very mind boggling but what happens to each one as a result is downright scary, but exciting. As they are learning about themselves, each other, and making new friends….the crazy starts to come out. These two have a very intense pull because of this unknown connection, but what they don’t know is if it is predesigned or not. This causes a lot of hesitation for them. The romance portion of this starts as a slow burn but then the fireworks happen….and get ready to fan yourself because it gets HAWT!!! In the midst of all of this, they have become targets because of their powers. This erupts in a hellacious fight. But wait, there’s more! About the time that you think things may calm down, the authors add in a lovely, twisted ploy at the end that keeps you needing more. There are some typos that threw me off some and I wish the big fight scene had more detail or was drawn out more, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. Overall, this was a great book and I look forward to reading about Imogen and Rhys and seeing what shenanigans they bring!

#Review Harpy’s Mission (Supernatural Retrieval Agency 1) by Laura Greenwood

Harpy's Mission (Supernatural Retrieval Agency, #1)

Harper has wanted to join the Agency for as long as she can remember, but even she never expected to be thrown in the deep end on her first day.

After she helps uncover a secret crime ring within the city, she’s sent on a rescue mission to get a vital witness to safety. But when the plan goes sideways, Harper and her partner have to work out why, and how they can fix it.

Can this harpy complete her mission?

Harpy’s Mission is book one in the urban fantasy Supernatural Retrieval Agency Series, which includes a romantic m/f sub-plot.


Review by Kelly

I love all things supernatural and am a sucker for the lesser-known supernatural beings. With that being said, I was completely drawn in by the Harpy.  This is an action-packed quick read where the police force and the supernatural work together to take down the baddies. Harpies are a rare breed and there aren’t too many around. Once someone finds out what she is they always have something to say and want to see her shift. She is rather annoyed by this, but her wit and snark keep everyone on their toes. It’s Harper’s first day on the job and she is already going out on a job. Things go awry but they are able to obtain other information that take them to an even bigger crime ring. When things seem too easy, something is usually wrong. Well, the team soon finds the chink in the armor and things go crazy! I wish there was more back story for Harper and her boss, Elias (I am hoping for more in the next books). Some of the story felt a bit rushed. I do sense an underlying love story happening between Harper and Elias, so YAY! I love that a member of their team ended up being a cupid because we never hear about them in the supernatural community. This is a new author for me, but this story definitely has me intrigued.
