Posted January 23, 2023 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

His wolf wants him to repair his pack, but then she comes along. Will love be his ticket to salvation, or will it disrupt things even more?

Blade Malone is the new alpha of the Dark Moon Pack, but his pack is in shambles. Damage from their previous leader still lingers, and so does Blade’s guilt for the things that happened. Just when there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel, his mate walks into his life.

Laney Henry thought she was emailing the man she was hired to interpret nightmares for, but she was wrong. Instead, the big, burly biker doesn’t know why she’s standing in his motorcycle clubhouse. Not one to walk away from a challenge, Laney knows if she can get his walls down, she can figure out what’s troubling him and help.

But a pack in disarray brings challenges, and when those challenges threaten Laney, Blade knows he must step up and protect the woman his wolf has chosen—even if it means tossing pack rules out the window.

A mom and her young daughter on the run. A bear shifter with a protective streak.

A forbidden love that threatens to keep them apart.

When Kay checks in at Bear Creek Lodge, Curtis instantly recognizes her as his mate. There’s just one problem. Kay is already married.

The wedding ring on her finger means he can’t declare his love for her, or even tell her they are mates. Not when she has a young daughter. Curtis might be many things, but he is not a homewrecker.

However, things are not as they seem and as he learns more about Kay, he realizes that instead of wrecking her life, he is destined to save it.

Kay is in trouble. She’s on the run and doesn’t know who to trust.

Then she meets Curtis. He doesn’t deserve to get caught up in her messy life. Not when getting involved will put him in danger.

But she soon realizes there’s no stopping the grumpy-looking bear shifter when he tells her – you’re mine!

Hunter’s Blood by R. Sullins

Posted January 8, 2023 by Marsha in Happy For Now (HFN), NetGalley ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifters & Magic, Vampire / 0 Comments

My name is Ivy Moore.

This morning I woke up a 21-year-old overworked waitress, sister, and not much else. 

Six years ago I watched my mother walk away while I was trapped in the mangled car that held my crippled twin sister and the body of my dead father.  My hatred for her ran deep into my bones.

It wasn’t until I was attacked by monsters that were attracted to my blood that I began to understand.

With the help of the local arrogant vampire lord, I learned all about my heritage, about vampires and revenants, about what it was like to live again. About learning to love.

While Crispin spent his nights training me to be a deadly killer, someone else was creating an army.

I was a Hunter.  And someone wanted me for my blood.

Forbidden Midlife Mate by Meg Ripley

Posted January 5, 2023 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Seasoned Romance, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

When my husband ran off with our saloon’s hostess, I packed my bags and left Montana, joining my college-aged son in Oregon.

Eugene’s a far cry from my little hometown but I’m doing my best to blend in with the locals.  I grabbed my new fitness tracker and headed out for a jog.  Deep into the trail, I thought I stumbled upon some hippies until they changed into wolves.  And the moment I screamed, they set their sights on me.  I ran for my life until my clumsy ass tripped and blacked out.

Now I’m waking up on a handsome stranger’s couch, with no recollection of what I’d just seen.  Rex is intimidating and a little rough around the edges.  But something about him sets me on fire.  And when I land a job and he ends up being my boss he awakens something deep inside me and it’s not just another hot flash.

Too bad Rex is the only one who wants me around.  My coworkers at the rock club have it in for me and when they threaten me after work one night a nightmare comes to life before my very eyes.  In mere seconds, they shift from men to snarling wolves.

But I realize that nightmare is just beginning when I look down at my trembling hands… and see snow-white paws instead.

Zombie Wolf of Piston by T. S. Joyce

Posted January 4, 2023 by Marsha in Owned, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series, Shifters & Magic / 0 Comments

He shouldn’t be here.

Reaper used to have a life, and friends, and a close-knit Pack. He was Stryker. Even if he was a War Wolf, his life made sense. When he died, something evil needed him to cheat death. A powerful storm is building around him because Reaper has been brought back to life for a nightmare destiny. He’s been controlled by an underserving Alpha before, and he is done being a pawn in the game of good and evil. From here on, Reaper will do whatever he wants.

Isa Moreau is his only anchor.

She is the only one who can save Reaper’s new Pack from him. She is the only one who can save Reaper from himself, but Fate sure is hard to fight, and especially for a she-wolf who is dropped in the middle of a battle she didn’t know existed.

She’s learning that there are two sides to the Zombie Wolf of Piston… One with the capacity to learn love, and one with the ability to destroy everything.

Reaper must choose between good and evil, once and for all, and he must protect a Pack that betrayed him to do it.

Witches, werewolves, and ghosts are pulling the Zombie Wolf in different directions, and no one really knows where he will land. 

Will he be a good Zombie Wolf? Or the Zombie Wolf everyone loves to hate?

Christmas is supposed to be the season of miracles. But seeing my ‘90s high school boyfriend change into a bear isn’t the miracle I’d hoped for.

He’s not only capable of morphing into a bear, but he was also under a feral curse for all those years.  And when a wolf from his past comes looking for revenge, so much for a holly, jolly Christmas– I’m now caught in the crossfire between two vicious beasts.

A Personal Journey

Posted December 31, 2022 by Marsha in Shifter Haven Discussion / 0 Comments

This is a post that I will place on all three of my websites for it’s the same message to my various readers and visitors to Keeper Bookshelf or Shifter Haven or Happily Ever After Romance.  All are owned and created by the same person — Me.

As another year comes to a close we often reflect back… but I’m going to go only about 10 days that have changed so much about my life in ways that I’ll be discovering in the coming weeks.  I’m careful of what I share personally online but this is a message that I feel is important and might help someone else.

Last week I had a fall, I wasn’t badly injured but looking back that was a defining event.  Recently I was admitted to the hospital with bilateral pneumonia and it was discovered at that time that I was dealing with some heart issues as well.  At my age, beyond retirement, that’s not something you really want to hear – but it was pretty loud and clear that I needed to pay attention to my own health.  Which I will be doing intensely over the next few weeks.  I’m not done with this life yet so I’m going to take the steps needed to ensure that I wake up every morning for as long as possible.

In light of this, I’m going to be cutting back a bit on the number of books I’m reading and reviewing for these websites.  To authors that I’ve promised reviews, they will still be delivered the timing will be off, but I’m not going back on my word.  My life, my health is worth the investment of time to take care of it – and if that isn’t understood, well then, I don’t know what else to say.

I will always love Romance Novels across so many genres… but right now I have to be realistic about what my personal future may hold.  I’m far from done reading and reviewing what I love, I just may do it less often for a hopefully small period of time. 🙂

Samuel Garcia didn’t expect to find a woman trespassing on Crescent Pack land. He didn’t expect his wolf to have such a strong pull to her, either. As Second of the Crescent Pack, he knows he should make her leave, but there’s a part of him that wants to help her instead.

Arabella Meadows knows something awful happened to her brother. However, the poison slowly consuming her from her pack’s sick alpha has her wolf spinning out of control, making her search for him challenging. That is until she stumbles upon Samuel, a handsome tattooed guy who calms her wolf unlike anything ever has.

As tensions between their packs grow, and the poison flowing through Arabella builds, both know something needs to give before things reach the point of no return for them all.
