Bear’s Midlife Witch by Meg Ripley

Posted August 13, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Widowed witch. Mother of two half-breed teenagers.  And that’s just the beginning of my midlife crisis.

In one of his drunken stupors, my husband got into a fight and plunged off a bridge, leaving me to raise our two children on my own.

Fourteen years later, my son’s struggling to control his magic, but I’m too busy keeping a roof over our heads to train him alone.  When he accidentally sets his bully’s locker on fire, it’s time to move in with my crazy old Aunt Lenora down in Carlton.  I land a waitressing gig at a brewery in town, and when I meet the head chef, his deep green eyes have me spellbound.

He may be a single parent like me, but with his bad boy looks and mischievous smile, I know he’ll be nothing but trouble— Especially when I hear he’s a bear shifter, just like my dead husband.

His unusual name sounds strangely familiar, though.  Intuition tells me to pull the police report for my late husband’s case, but it burst into flames in my hands when I saw the name of the suspect: the same one that belongs to the man I can’t resist.

I was the wolf shifter that thought he had everything… until Nora Simons entered my life and turned it upside down.

Mayor of Pleasant Valley.
Successful.
Womanizer.

My life was perfect.  But Nora showed me what I was missing – a sassy woman on the hunt for wolves.  Her mission to find them would remove our grazing rights.

Nora could never find out that I was a wolf shifter.  And she was not interested in me at first…  But that changed when I touched her skin, making her realize that she belonged only in my arms.

But my pretty Nora came with a set of problems I had to deal with.  Including her ex that was obsessed with her.  That combined with my own enemy who was a rival clan leader, would keep me busy for a while.

No danger was too big for me.  But keeping Nora safe was important.  In fact, it was the only important thing.

How would she react after watching me shift to save her life?

Posted July 24, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

He left without a word and became a soldier.

I was so broken-hearted I didn’t think I could ever love again.
It was as if I was reborn as a completely different person without my strong, silent shifter lover.

After nearly a decade of pointless flings and long hours at work, I thought I was ready for him to come back into my life.

Then I lost a patient, and all of the pain from the days when he left washed over me.
I’m not ready. I’m not ready to see my mate. My love.

I ran from it, hiding even from my family.
Then I encountered another shifter, and everything changed.

Now I might lose him all over again.
I want to curse him for making me care.

But he will always be my hot bear shifter, the love of my life. I can’t lose him again.

A Bear to Love by Amy Pennza

Posted July 17, 2022 by Marsha in ARC, Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Alaska was supposed to give me the fresh start I need to finally shed my miserable past. But when an accident leaves me stranded deep in the forest, I find myself in the care of a bearded giant who threatens to upend all my carefully laid plans.

Everett Laskin is everything I don’t want: big, burly, and overly curious. He wants to learn all my secrets. I want him to look the other way so I can escape his cabin and get back to enjoying life without an ankle monitor.

But my soft-spoken captor is also full of surprises. Like how there’s a brilliant scientist under those big muscles and flannel shirts. And how his sexy smiles and broad shoulders make my body melt and my brain turn to mush.

The more time I spend with him, the harder it is to resist the urge to put down roots. Then I discover Everett isn’t quite what he seems—and the life he offers might just trap me in a prison I can never escape.

Alpha’s Midlife Baby by Meg Ripley

Posted July 8, 2022 by Marsha in ARC, Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Seasoned Romance, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

I’m fated to the Alpha, but I can’t give him the one thing he needs:
An heir.

They say life begins at forty, but when infertility led to my divorce, it seemed more like the end.

When I’d rather be at home in my sweats, binging 80s movies, my dad begs me to go to Carlton with him for moral support as he presents my much younger sister to their unmated Alpha.

We end up barging into his clan meeting— completely awkward, to say the least. But not as awkward as when I realize he’s my fated mate.

When he tells me his bear knows we’re destined to be together, we can’t help but give in to the fire between us. But he deserves to know the truth: I can never give him an heir, so it will never work.

Until, weeks later, I see the impossible: A pregnancy test with two lines.

Bachelor Secret Wolf by Serena Meadows

Posted July 1, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

All I had to do was spy on Sheriff Dominic Stewart and save my brother’s life…
But instead, I fell in love with him.

Dominic is a wolf shifter. That was one of the reasons we could never be together.  But I desperately wanted to.

Dominic protected me with everything he had.  Even while I was looking him in the eye and lying to him.  Even when I was hiding a secret he could never find out.

But Dominic was anything but naïve.  It was only a matter of time until he figured out that I was deceiving him.

That day would ruin me.  It would break my heart… and potentially end my brother’s life along with my own.

If I knew anything about Dominic, he would never let that happen.  Even if he had to risk his own life to save mine.
