Two Shots Down by T. S. Joyce

Two Shots Down is blazing his way up the ranks as one of the top bull shifters in the Pro Bull Shifter Riding Circuit. He has a chip on his shoulder a mile wide, and everything to prove. With a dark reputation as a cowboy killer, he has wrecked every interview he’s done in his career. He’s the bull shifter everyone loves to hate, and he’s just fine with that, except there is one he cares about. One woman whose life he ruined. One woman he damaged. One woman who probably doesn’t even know he exists. When that one woman stands up for him and the other top three bull shifters of the circuit and offers to manage them, he knows he’s in for a bad time. She drags ghosts with her, and they’re haunting him. All he needs to do is get from event to event and buck those riders off before that eight-second mark. But during the most important time of his career, Cheyenne is tearing down his walls. And for the life of him, he can’t figure out if that’s a good thing or a very, very bad thing.

Cheyenne left the PBSR years ago when tragedy altered her life forever. She used to represent the riders, but now she’s turning traitor and switching sides. She’s taking heat from everyone to represent three titan bull shifters who don’t even understand what she’s trying to do for them and want nothing to do with her. She’s in way over her head, but she did this on purpose, to get to know the man who demolished her life all those years ago. She needs to know if Two Shots Down is really the monster he pretends to be, or if he might be the only other person on earth who could understand what she’s healing from. These bull shifters are rough, and violent, and intimidating, but Two Shots Down is showing her a softer side to the bulls. He’s funny, and caring, and protective of her always, and sexy as hell. The more time she spends with him, the safer she feels with the monster.

Now it’s up to Two Shots Down. If he wants to be a part of Cheyenne’s team, he has to win events…and that means being the biggest, baddest bucker in the world.

Grace’s Royal Taming by Lisa Daniels

Shifters are always looking for mates.
That’s what I thought before meeting him.

He looks fragile, but he’s a rare wolf shifter.
By the nine chasms, I didn’t even know they existed before that day.

That day when I first experienced the feel of his arms around me.

My heart racing and my thoughts muddled by the hidden thoughts of romance.

Being rescued by a wolf shifter –I never thought I’d want it.

Now I want to start a romance that will make him mine.

I had no interest in dragon shifters or bear shifters. But wolf shifters, now they are the right kind of alpha to be instructor, protector, and lover.

So he buys the bar.

Winner takes all.

But there’s something Kelly doesn’t know about Bear. A secret that could destroy her trust and her heart forever.

Month of Binge-Reading Concludes

I did something on Shifter Haven in October that I rarely ever do… actually, I don’t think I’ve ever done it before… Hmm.

I had been meaning to read the connecting series that make up the “Immortal Ops World” by Mandy M. Roth for some time.  It was one of those… meh, I’ll get to it soon kind of things.  Well.  Soon came suddenly when I learned that those stories were coming out of Kindle Unlimited in November of 2020.  Yeah.  My book budget doesn’t stretch to buying all of those books at one time so I had to make a choice.  Binge-read the series while it was still in KU or just not read it at all… and the second option wasn’t really one that was acceptable to me for I really wanted to experience this world in the reading order that the author, Mandy M. Roth, suggested.

That Suggest Reading Order can be found on this page, just click the link if interested. Series that connect: Immortal Ops — PSI Ops (Paranormal Security & Intelligence) — Crimson Ops — Shadow Agents — Immortal Outcasts

So, I took the month of October and read the majority of these stories.  I still have a couple to finish up but I no longer feel the rush to get them done “yesterday” that I did.  Thanks to some sales, and clearing some space on my Kindle Unlimited shelf I have the remaining 5 books that are released on my Kindle ready to devour.  Truthfully, it will be much easier to keep up with the new releases now that I only will need to buy one book at a time.

While, admittedly, my reviews of other favorite series suffered by doing this dedicated month binge-read — I don’t regret it, at all.  I fell in love with the world created by Ms. Roth, the action is fast-paced, the villains vile as imaginable, the heroines smart and determined, the heroes sexy, dangerous, and believable (for the genre).  So, yeah, I had a blast doing this.  And hopefully, I won’t need to do it again soon for I cannot think of another connecting set of series that needs read and reviewed.  I’m sure I could find one if I looked hard enough.  🙂

Sorry if I cluttered up your timeline on Twitter or your email… but I hope you’ll give these stories a chance (if you haven’t already).  They really are well worth the time, effort, and cost for some amazing adventures of the shifter and the magical kind.

Act of Brotherhood by Mandy M. Roth

Captain Garth Ingersson is in charge of Paranormal Security and Intelligence Agency Special Ops Team Eight. It’s a position he didn’t originally want, but one he has grown to accept.

This six-and-half-foot-tall Scandinavian is about to have his world turned upside down.

Winning an all-expenses-paid trip to Egypt felt like a dream come true for Brooke Larner. Everything in her life is lining up perfectly-even the handsome new man she’s found herself attracted to. Before long she’s handing over more than just her heart, thinking it just might be for keeps. When it doesn’t go as planned, Brooke finds herself running right into the hands of madmen bent on creating super soldiers. And she soon realizes that creatures from stories and nightmares are altogether too real.

After five years of searching for Brooke, Malik has finally reached his breaking point. Already the obsession to find her left him shifting into a lion in a very public place before being forced on mandatory leave. Still, he can’t get her out of his mind. The suppression drugs have been out of his system for years. The burning desire for Brooke should have gone with them.

It didn’t.

So when chance leaves their paths crossing once more, he realizes destiny is at play. The only problem is, she doesn’t trust him and she has a secret she’s willing to die to protect.

As demons from their past resurface, they find themselves in a battle to save everything they hold dear.
