All the ghosts of Wes’s past are coming back to haunt him in a big way. A handwritten letter changes everything when he finds out his brother, Sam, is alive after Wes has thought him dead for years. The one who has tracked him down? The love of Wes’s life, Summer, but when she shows up on his doorstep, she isn’t the bright and cheery girl he left all those years ago. Summer is different now– tough, snarly, independent, angry, and wrestling with an animal side that is relentless. Nothing can hide the dark beauty that radiates from her though. Her anger is Wes’s fault, but he had good reason. And now she is sending him on a mission to avenge his brother and set Sam free from a dominant pack of werewolves that thrive in war. His only ally is the woman who hates him the most.

Summer isn’t so summery anymore. There are no happy rainbows hovering over her life right now as she struggles to control the savage wolf inside of her. She loved hard once and got really burned, and now she’s back to send Wes on a fool’s mission that will probably get him killed. All she has to do is not get attached to the charming alpha of the Kaid Pack. That man was trouble since the day he was born, but there is something about Wes that calls to her. The more he reveals about the reasons he left her, the more she thinks she might have been wrong about everything, and now sending him on a mission to fight an entire pack doesn’t seem like such a good idea. If something bad happens to him, her heart might just get broken…again.

The time has come. Time to heal, time to rise up, time to protect the throat of the man she once loved. Even if it means the end of her.

Braelynn Summers had one experience with a shifter and it left her in a coma for three weeks, waking up a sex-crazed freak. After three years of living in pain, she does the one thing she never expected to do, give in and look to a shifter to satisfy her intense sexual urges.

Time is running out for Ronan Styles. As a Pegasus shifter, he has until his 38th birthday to find his mate or he will lose his wings and become nothing more than a stallion. He turns to Gerri Wilder and the PDA. Ronan expected to find his mate and continue on with life. He didn’t expect his mate to have a prejudice against shifters.

Can Braelynn move beyond her prejudice and embrace life with Ronan? Or will her past and his secret be their downfall?

Like most folks, my family and I have self-isolated during (and also leading up to) this deadly virus outbreak.  Normal doesn’t look, sound, or feel quite the same – I’m sure that’s true in your home as well.

We’ve been in official self-isolation since March 12, 2020, and as that month anniversary has recently passed – well, I miss like crazy being able to just go out beyond the mailbox or the back patio.  But, I’m content as one can possibly be with staying home, staying in so that not only my family but others can be safe (or as safe as possible) right now.  I’ll admit to a bit of a mourning period for that past life that I so took for granted.  I’ve played more video games, watched more streaming shows, read more books — basically escaping into my own comfort zone.  I’ve not done a lot of writing, my mind just hasn’t been wrapped around many upbeat ways to write reviews lately.

But that changed today.  I came to the realization that “this” is normal now – and I’d better get with the program for wasting one day seems so very foolish considering the world I live in right now.

I’ve read a lot, as I mentioned, and I’ve begun putting those reviews up on the blog.  I’ve tried, when possible to have backdated those posts to around the time I actually read the book.  Once I get caught up then I’ll go back to every other day postings.  It’s my normal, or it was and I’m determined that it will be again.

So, I’m sorta sorry if I’m jamming up your email notifications or your Twitter feed – but they’re all good stories you might want to check out.  🙂

You take care of you and yours as best you can – and I’ll keep doing the same here.  Be well my shifter loving book friends.

He’s determined to tear down the walls around his mate’s heart before an enemy rips out his soul.

Dash
Ruthless fighter, aimless drifter. Falling in love means getting ripped in pieces when everything goes to hell.

Lion shifter Dash can’t fight the mating fever forever—or deny his insatiable need for the only woman who soothes his inner roar and makes him purr like a kitten.  But another male’s sniffing around his woman. It’s time for Dash to prove he’s the deadliest hunter in the pride.

No rival will take what is his.  He’ll prove to Colette that he’s here to claim, here to stay.

Colette
Men are trouble. Mates are worse. Colette avoids anything more serious than a one-night stand like the plague.  But for once in her life she needs help.  A vow never to out a shifter to humans is going to cost her everything. Especially when the person she’s protecting is giving off stalker vibes.

The only person in her corner is also the only man who tempts her to break her own rules. The man who wants more than her body.  She’ll have to trust that a mate bond won’t chew her up and spit her out. Dash is the last defense against not just her enemies, but a lifetime of emptiness.

It was fitting that her name meant “the fiery one” because Serafina was hot!

Somehow, I knew from the second I laid eyes on her in that hospital that she was going to be mine for eternity.

I had a bet to win, one that would free me from the prison in which I’d been cast after being framed for a crime that my brother committed.

And the stakes were higher than any I’d ever known in this life or the next.

But the way I felt for Sera had little to do with the wager and everything to do with the fact she was my mate.

Everyone is conspiring against us, dark forces and light but love always wins, in the end, …doesn’t it?

Dixie Reade is a newly immortal witch, looking for some excitement in her life. She’s in for more than her fair share when she runs across famed matchmaker, Gerri Wilder, who drags Dixie to a party at Dire Bear Estate.

Slade Galath is content with life the way it is. He’s spent centuries as an immortal dire bear, and despite Gerri’s regular teasing, he’s not interested in finding a mate and settling down. That all changes when Slade meets Dixie, his fated mate.

Neither of them trusts love, but that’s the least of their problems because the local wolf pack has targeted Dixie and set the immortal council on her. If she can’t convince the local coven to sponsor her, the council will exterminate her, and Slade is not about to let that happen to his mate.

Can these two get over their stubbornness and figure out the best way for Dixie to get set up with the council, and accept the best way for each other?

The one woman this lone wolf can’t resist…

New Yorker Lena Castamolino has trouble. Big trouble. Every time the full moon shines, her body tries to turn into a wild beast, and she has no idea why. Her skin goes all leathery, and her shoulders begin the agonizing transformation into wings. Wings! Could it have to do with her recent move to Rome — a magical city that called to her for years? Or does the answer lie in the father who abandoned her at birth? Either way, she needs help, because all the grit and determination in the world can’t stop the moon — or the evil forces hot on her trail.

Rome may be known as the Eternal City, but eternal banishment is more like it for members of the despised Monseratti clan. But wolf shifter Sergio Monseratti has been granted one last chance to return to the city he loves, and he’s not about to blow it. “All” he has to do is bring down a ruthless mafia boss, and he can’t afford any distractions now. And he absolutely, positively cannot fall in love with the mysterious woman who could be the key to saving the city, no matter how high the passion between them builds.

Dazzling starlets, billionaire playboys, vengeful enemies, power-hungry dragons, secret heirs… It’s impossible to know who to trust, but one thing is for sure — destiny is on the move, and Rome is its stage.

I shouldn’t want Celine …

She’s vulnerable, pregnant by a vampire, and hunted by everyone, including my own clan.

The difference is, I was sent to bring her here and keep her safe.

Everyone else?

The other shifters want to kill her, and the vampires … well, everyone knows that vamps can’t be trusted.

But spending time with her, keeping her and her new baby safe, getting to know her and win her trust … I can’t help my growing feelings.
Even though I know she’s strictly off-limits.

But despite her growing trust in me, she’s still wary of our Alpha’s intentions. Can I assure her that she’s safe with me no matter what?

Or will her persistent distrust drive her out of my arms … and into danger?

Everything can change in a moment… 

Trevor didn’t think that a single outburst directed at his takeout would come back to haunt him. After all, as an immortal dragon, being in the public eye isn’t supposed to happen. But the thing haunting him is actually an audaciously persistent reporter who’s determined to get her next story at any cost. Even if it means awakening the dragon in him to the realization that this woman may just be his mate.

Petra knows that all things in life come at a price. So when her boss holds the one thing she thinks she wants most–her promotion– hostage, she is ready to do anything. Even track down the mysterious, strikingly handsome man caught throwing a tantrum on a viral video. But she never expected that coming face to face with the most amazing, frustrating man on earth just might turn her world upside down.

One interview is all it takes for the sparks to start flying between the closed-off Trevor and Petra. But even though she’s sworn off romance, her tall, relentless recluse seems intent on making her life complicated. The kind of complicated that could give a girl ideas of happily ever after.
