A mate and family are everything to a bear shifter. Patrick found both in the middle of a storm. He intends to win their hearts at all costs.

It was a dark and stormy night! Bear shifter, Patrick, is helping fellow Silverback Savior, Gunner and his mate, Sadie, get to the hospital. It’s an emergency since Sadie is in labor and not even a raging storm can stop her baby from being born. However, a downed tree might just stop them from getting to the hospital. And being born in the back of a truck is not the way they want to welcome the new baby into the world.

Then, fate steps in.

A large fallen tree is blocking the route to Kelly’s new home and new life in Bear Creek. When a vehicle pulls up behind them and a handsome stranger taps on the window, single mom Kelly has no idea how her life is about to change.
What Kelly is about to discover is that her new life is missing one thing, a bear shifter for a mate.

But things do not run smoothly. Kelly’s reason for starting over is her son, Danny, who has become a shadow of himself since he witnessed a tragic accident. She hopes the move will help Danny put the past behind him. Her son is her sole responsibility and she intends to support him in any way she can. There is no room in her life for romance with a stranger.

Or is there?

How degrading. Stuck babysitting a woman because his alpha said so. As Pride Beta, he has better things to do with his time, like washing his impressive mane, hunting down thugs for fun, and chasing tail—sometimes his own if his lion is feeling playful.

But his babysitting job takes an unexpected turn when the woman he’s assigned guard duty over turns out to be his mate.

A female threatened by an outside wolf pack.

A woman he wants to call his own.

A mate who doesn’t fall for his charm.

Usually, Betas leave the roaring to the Pride’s alpha, but in this case, given his level of frustration, he might have to make an exception. And if anyone doesn’t like it, they can kiss his furry tail.
Rawr!

Ruby O’Shea gives the orders in her pack. And when a rival alpha propositions her with a marriage of convenience at the cost of her power, she rejects him. Happily ever after might not be in her cards, but she refuses to give up her power, her pack, and everything else she’s worked for. Unfortunately, the other alpha doesn’t take rejection well and prepares to destroy Ruby and her pack.

Carter Chase knows Ruby is his mate, and he’d do anything for her. Except she’s practically allergic to asking for help of any kind. Ruby willingly submits in his bedroom, but in public, she pretends there’s nothing between them. Carter’s lion is ready to tear the city apart to prove their devotion, but when Ruby thinks he interferes with the rival wolf pack, she walks away for good.

Ruby knows she’s meant to be with Carter. She aches for him. But she’s worked her entire life to be alpha, and she won’t give that up. Even for true love. Can she relinquish enough control, and trust him enough, to cut to the chase and find their happily ever after?

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

After years of stagnancy, Muriel Marsden leaves the legendary clan of Hells Canyon bear shifters and goes rogue in order to discover herself. Her trip is cut short when she stumbles upon an injured man alone in the wilderness. As his only chance for survival, Muriel brings him to her cabin and works to save his life.

The man is half-feral and all sexy. He’s a rogue bear shifter like Muriel, yet his actions make no sense. When her ex, Bronson Cress, enlists the help of her new patient, Muriel can’t help but be dragged along for the ride. If she can learn to trust the secretive new man along the way, she just might find the life she yearns for.

Logan O’Connor is running from the trackers who are after him. Seeking sanctuary with the Hells Canyon shifters is his only shot at survival, but it’s not just his life at stake. When Logan meets the timid, stunning woman who is willing to save a stranger, he knows his heart is in deep trouble.

Logan discovers just how strong Muriel is beneath her quiet exterior, but his interest in her brings them both great risk. He must choose whether to keep her for himself or leave to draw the danger of his dark past away from the woman he’s falling for.

Aaron Winter has waited for nearly two decades to claim his mate and now he has his chance. He’s going to do everything he can to convince Celeste that she’s the only one for him… and his bear.

He’s had two dreams in his life: Turning Mystic Mountain Resort into a getaway for shapeshifters and to have Celeste at his side. The town is excited as nearly all the residents are shifters themselves.

Celeste Olwin is at a turning point in her life. She raised her kids as a single mom, with Aaron as her friend and rock. She was already half in love with the man.

But Aaron has always kept his emotional distance from her and after all of this time, he’s offering her a dream. There are still some questions she has about him, something she’s sure he’s hiding from her. She’s not sure if she can take that leap, because if he broke her heart now, she’d never survive.
Aaron knows he has to tell her who he really is if this is going to work between them, but to drag up old memories into the darkest night of her life may set her against him forever. Still, he can’t give up.

He’ll move a mountain to prove that he’ll protect her and love her like no one else could because they were meant to be.

Titles in the Mystic Mountain series include – Winter

They don’t know the first thing about being dragons. But they need to learn fast…

City planner Lindsay never expected to find a dying dragon on her local beach. (She was just trying to pick up some litter!) And she really never expected its final breath to change her life forever… and make her a killer’s next target.

But it’s the best thing to ever happen to her. Because despite this dangerous new world, she’s no longer alone…

One minute, artist Boone could just cross his fingers and hope the curvy, funny woman he met on the beach could be the start of something special. But one magical dragon breath later, he KNOWS she is. And he knows he’ll protect her with every skill he learned as a soldier—and with all his newfound powers. (Whatever those might be. He’s working on it.)

When the dragon’s dying wish transforms Boone and Lindsay into shifters, they’re plunged into a magical world neither ever suspected existed. With a powerful dragon-hunter hot on their tails, time is running out for them to figure out their new gifts… and their unexpected bond.

A dragon prophecy says they could end a centuries-old supernatural war. But what if saving the world means losing each other?

Standalone title – although, one can wish for a series one day, right?

Well.  I just have to say that I’m very glad 2019 is behind me.  Not that it was a horrible year, as years go, but it also wasn’t the greatest either.  So on to 2020, new plans, new goals… and hopefully, lots of new Shifter Romance tales to be read.

As happens every single Fall moving into Winter I got caught up in the Christmas Romance madness which I admittedly love and will read year-round.  This year was particularly full of stories – and honestly, many of those are still on my Kindle unread at this moment.  Yeah, books I paid for not ARCs, not borrowed, but mine.  Which is good because no deadlines, but bad because I didn’t get them finished in 2019.  Good thing I can read a Christmas Romance any time of the year, right?  🙂

Okay, on to Shifter Haven stuff.  Ya know, this really is my favorite (of my two) blogs because I simply adore and devour Shifter Romance.  Yet, lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of stories that merge Shifter with Magic/Fantasy and I’m of two minds where they belong between my two blogs.  I really intended SH to be strictly Shifter Romance (even though I do slip in a Paranormal Romance occasionally) — but I may branch out a bit to include those Shifter/Magic titles as well.  I’m thinking, right now, that it makes the most sense but we’ll see when the time comes to write reviews.

My intent is to keep the every other day schedule of posts/reviews which allows me that in-between day to post something amazing that I simply don’t want to wait to do.  I know, at some point I’ll be back to daily reviews but it’s good to have a base plan in place that’s open to improvising a bit.  I have *a lot* of draft reviews that for one reason or another didn’t make it onto the blog.  I’m sure they were good reasons – but some are three years old so who knows what I was planning/scheming back then, right??  I’d like to get them posted so I’ll be doing some of that work through the first quarter of the year.

So.  2020.  We made it to another decade.  Now let’s make it a fun, exciting one full of amazing love stories full of sizzling chemistry, good plotlines, swoon-worthy heroes and kick-ass heroines… and lots and lots of furry, sexy Shifters.  Oh, my first read of 2020 was a Shifter Romance and that review is scheduled.  🙂  I can’t help it – I love Shifters!
