Joey by Harmony Raines

Joey’s mate, Breeze, is a midwife. She’s about to deliver his friend Polly’s baby. The problem is, Breeze thinks he is the father of the baby—And that Joey and Polly are married.

Fate sure has a sense of humor when it comes to true mates.

Joey’s longing for a mate is finally brought to an end when he meets Breeze. After straightening out their brief misunderstanding he asks Breeze out on a date. She eventually says yes. However, Breeze is afraid to commit to a relationship with Joey, or any other man, because she has been unexpectedly left to care for her nephew, Tristan.

Can Joey persuade Breeze that he can be there for them both? After all, to a shifter like Joey, his mate’s family is his family.

Breeze moved to Bear Creek for a new start. However, her problems followed her. At least her sister’s problems did. When her sister’s marriage implodes Breeze left to pick up the pieces and Tristan comes to stay.

When she meets Joey, she is instantly drawn to him. Breeze doesn’t want Tristan to feel threatened by the new relationship but not falling in love with Joey is going to be hard. He’s the perfect man for her and would be the kind of father figure Tristan has been missing his whole life.

Just as things start to work themselves out, Breeze’s sister and her husband come to town and throw Breeze’s plans into disarray.

Can Joey and Breeze find a way to true happiness? For themselves and Tristan.

The Hunt: Masquerade by Milly Taiden

Rush Jensen, wolf shifter and failing hotel owner, has always lived in the shadow of his family’s sordid history. His entire life has been spent trying to regain what was lost: the family money and the prestigious name attached to it. When his flighty brother makes a shady deal with a loan shark, there is more than the crumbling family business to save. That is what he should focus on. Not the beautiful masked woman he meets at a masquerade – even if she is his mate.

Chantal Katz is an upcoming designer who can’t believe her luck when she gets invited to the year’s shifter party. Not only is she human, but she isn’t a glamorous society lady. She just likes to design gowns. But her plan to leave the masquerade is ruined when she runs into a handsome masked stranger. She just didn’t expect the one-night stand to turn into anything – especially not love.

The attraction is undeniable. Especially when Rush finds Chantal after her morning-after disappearing act. They could be incredible together, Rush knows that. Too bad the past just won’t leave these destined mates alone.

Although this is stated to be a Stand-Alone Title there is a connection, slight, to The Hunt (same world).

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Shawn: Spring by Harmony Raines

A silverback seasoned shifters romance

He’s found his mate, at last. Can she stop him from losing his daughter?

Cougar shifter, Shawn, has been a father to Jane since she was a baby. He didn’t know her past, he was only interested in giving her the best future possible—and keeping her safe.

Now her future is in jeopardy as secrets are revealed and unknown enemies unmasked.

But he’s not alone when it comes to keeping Jane safe. His mate is by his side every step of the way. Joanna, gorgeous, strong, and funny, is the perfect woman for him. The perfect mate and, if given the chance, Shawn knows she will be the perfect mother.

She’s also a very capable police detective. Surely, the bad guys don’t stand a chance. But they soon find out there is more than just Jane at risk. As the stakes are raised, will they ever find their happy ever after together?

Joanna is a wolf shifter who had given up all hope of ever finding her mate. Instead, she poured her energy into bringing bad people to justice. Including the man who was responsible for killing her father.  But just as she is starting to move on, Shawn enters her life.

Smart, sexy, and loving father, he is the mate of her dreams. However, she is soon drawn back into the corrupt world that ended in her father’s murder.  Only this time she intends for everyone to come out of it alive.

When two mates join forces, nothing can stop them. Of course, it helps to have a dragon shifter fighting alongside them. Even one as cantankerous as Fiona.

Firefighter Shifter’s Second Chance by Naomi Sparks

Ours isn’t a love story, it’s a complete disaster.
She just burned her apartment down trying to bake cookies.
I was called to stop the fire.
The moment our eyes met, she ignited me.

It’s been five years. I can’t do this again.
I almost had myself convinced that I was over her.
My heart doesn’t need this kind of heartache.
But my bear recognizes her as my mate.

She needs a place to stay.
Well, alright. I have a couch.
She can take the bed.

But then, in the middle of the night, she gets cold feet.
And she needs me to warm them up…

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.

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Titles in the Battle of the Bulls series include — Two Shots Down – Dead of Winter –

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.

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.

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.

The men who look to him to lead are like brothers to him. Especially since he and his twin brother had a falling out years ago. Much has changed for this ancient Viking over the centuries, but one thing remains the same–never thinking he has a true mate.

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

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Titles in the PSI Ops (Paranormal Security & Intelligence) series include – Act of Mercy – Act of Surrender – Act of Submission – Act of Command – Act of Passion – Act of Brotherhood – Act of Surveillance – Act of Freedom –

This series is part of an entire world that consists of several relating series.  There is a suggested reading list on our Cross-Over Series page.  I’d highly recommend reading them in that order, if possible because they all do blend together – a lot.
