Posted January 4, 2023 by Marsha in Owned, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series, Shifters & Magic / 0 Comments

He shouldn’t be here.

Reaper used to have a life, and friends, and a close-knit Pack. He was Stryker. Even if he was a War Wolf, his life made sense. When he died, something evil needed him to cheat death. A powerful storm is building around him because Reaper has been brought back to life for a nightmare destiny. He’s been controlled by an underserving Alpha before, and he is done being a pawn in the game of good and evil. From here on, Reaper will do whatever he wants.

Isa Moreau is his only anchor.

She is the only one who can save Reaper’s new Pack from him. She is the only one who can save Reaper from himself, but Fate sure is hard to fight, and especially for a she-wolf who is dropped in the middle of a battle she didn’t know existed.

She’s learning that there are two sides to the Zombie Wolf of Piston… One with the capacity to learn love, and one with the ability to destroy everything.

Reaper must choose between good and evil, once and for all, and he must protect a Pack that betrayed him to do it.

Witches, werewolves, and ghosts are pulling the Zombie Wolf in different directions, and no one really knows where he will land. 

Will he be a good Zombie Wolf? Or the Zombie Wolf everyone loves to hate?

Auxor Bane has made a pact. He and his brothers made a promise to each other that they would let their bear shifter lineage die off with them, for the betterment of mankind. They aren’t fluffy, and they aren’t cute. As one of the three remaining bear shifters alive, Aux struggles daily with the predator inside of him. His life is simple and manageable so long as he never breaks the rules enforced by his brothers. Rule number one: Never touch a human’s skin. Rule number two: never fall for one of the fragile creatures. Rule number three: never, ever let a human know what he is. But when he stumbles upon a car wreck in the remote Montana mountains, during the biggest snow storm of the year, he can’t just leave the stranded human to die. And in a series of unfortunate events that follow, he also can’t let her out of his sight if he wants to survive her.

Gwen Smithers had a plan. A great plan. A plan that will get her out of the stagnancy of her life and onto an adventure. This week was going to change her life, but in a split second on an icy road, all of her plans were derailed. Her rescuer is growly, and ill-mannered, and won’t show his face.

Rancher Dragon’s Unexpected Mate

Posted May 2, 2022 by Marsha in Owned, Sexual Content 18+, Shifter, Shifter Romantic Suspense / 0 Comments

A family starting over after being banished from paradise, their patriarch losing his life after being falsely accused of a crime committed by others. Brothers forged together by duty to protect and provide for their mother and sister. When the oldest brother, a cowboy lonely for love but content in the wilderness, is thrust into the spotlight by a Hollywood sweetheart, her secret might get them both killed.

Ellie Dampier
I was happiest on the big screen where I could be anybody until someone wanted me gone.  Falling props, flat tires, nasty notes in my trailer, I needed to get away, vanish – and my manager told me about Outdoor Outfitters.  The wilds of Colorado, specializing in losing yourself in nature, would be the perfect place to disappear and hope my stalker moved on.

And then I met him – the cowboy who made my toes curl.  Tall, dark, and so handsome I broke into a sweat.  The minute my eyes landed on him, I wanted him.  He was built tough. Rugged. Scorching.  His deep eyes awakened desires in me.  I’m used to any man I want, but he keeps himself at a distance.  But I was going off the grid with him – primitive camping.  I’m pretty sure we won’t need a fire with this heat he’s stirring up, but I don’t want to ruin it by telling him about my unwanted attention.  I just want all of his.

Colden Hale
I had planned on a weekend off the ranch with my brothers – Four bachelors looking for beer, boobs, and mechanical bulls.  I didn’t get out much, so I enjoyed every second when I did.  But then some Hollywood actress booked a last-minute excursion – and I volunteered to stay behind and take the job.  When I met her, passion flared and I didn’t regret a thing.  She wanted off the grid. I was happy to oblige as long as I was with her.

But I held back to find out if she’s real or just playing a part.  Her adventurous spirit made her all the more desirable.  Not even the cold winter weather prevented the heatwave.  I just wanted to warm her up, over and over again.  She’s soft and curvy, and I just know our bodies will be perfect together.  I just need to get her to the cabin and stroke the fire. That was my plan.  But things went a little sideways when she told me her secret.

Mistletoe and Mates: Shifters in Love Holiday Anthology by Multiple Authors

Posted December 1, 2021 by Marsha in Christmas Shifters, Owned / 0 Comments

I just picked up Mistletoe and Mates: Shifters in Love Holiday Anthology and I can’t wait to dive into it over the weekend.  So, even though this isn’t an “official” review I still wanted to let you all know that it exists and it’s full of all the sexy shifters and magic plus… Christmas tales… that I love so much, and I think you do, too.

Here’s the basic story information for this anthology:

A Furry Little Christmas – C.D. Gorri

Stephanie needs a Santa Claus stat! What she doesn’t need is entanglements of any kind while she figures out what it is she really wants to do at this stage of her life.
Tell that to the hunk her Pack’s Alpha sent to work for the almost fifty she-Wolf.
What do you get when you mix two Wolves with a little holiday spirit? A furry little Christmas…

Unwrapping Her Dragon – Julia Mills

Living without him for sixteen years sucked, but Everleigh survived. Now that blasted sexy Dragon is back with a tall tale and a basket load of apologies, and she can’t forget how bad it hurt to lose him the first time. Can she leave the past behind and trust Deacon to stand by her side for all eternity, or will she give up on the holidays forever? Only time will tell, but if Fate has anything to say about it that sweet Baker Bear will be unwrapping her Dragon sooner rather than later.

Her Cowboy Warrior – Liv Brywood

Ten years ago, bear shifter Gage Davis’ darkest secret ruined his relationship with his best friend. Now Raven’s back and she needs protection from her ex-husband. Gage has a second chance to make things right, but to win her heart, he’ll have to reveal the monster inside his soul and risk losing his fated mate forever.

Tis the Season for Sass – Melanie James

When a shadowy premonition forebodes the harshest winter in decades, Black Paw’s Alpha counts on the pack’s strongest wolves to help everyone pull through. But the Seer’s visions are swirling with majik and suggest an ancient legend will deliver more than just a blizzard to the wolves of Black Paw.

A Fated Mate for Christmas – Selena Blake

When a fight between their packs sends Gabrielle Landrum to Alpha Garrett Kingsdale’s doorstep begging for a truce, she half expects to be thrown out into the snow. She is the rival’s daughter, after all. Garrett’s instinct is to not trust a word coming from the seductive beauty. But the more he listens and watches, the more he’s drawn to her. Especially those lips. The next thing he knows, he’s kissing her and he can’t even blame mistletoe. To keep her safe, he whisks her far away to work on a truce of their own.

The Honeybear’s Xmas Curse – Jacqueline Sweet

Three years ago, Theresa Grimm had her Christmas ruined by an ex-boyfriend’s curse. But Gauge Morrissey, bear shifter in exile, might have the solution to her problem. But breaking the curse will require facing down a warlock and risking it all.

Her Cowboy’s Christmas Surprise – J. K. Harper

Garret Reeves and Callie Mayfield have been in love for several years. They are true mates, and wolf shifter Garret will always adore his very sexy human woman Callie. But when Callie starts to be a bit away from him, Garret is worried. He has no idea what is going on with her. His thought is that he must entice her back to him, for sure. Especially with the perfect wild Christmas night eve that they will spend together to reintroduce their perfect soul mates.

Gracie’s Gift – V. Vaughn

Good things didn’t happen to Gracie, which is why when she meets Jack, the hot new employee at Sugar Mountain, she doesn’t dare to believe he’s interested in her. But he’s relentless in his pursuit of Gracie, and she lets herself fall for him when he tells her they’re forever. What she doesn’t know is what forever with Jack means.

Now, there’s only one author here that I’m not familiar with so that’s a plus in discovering a new author, and another bonus for titles by authors I already enjoy.

This is available in Kindle Unlimited so it’s only for the Kindle (at the moment – things change) 🙂

Centuries ago, a witch laid a curse on a small town that froze its local werewolves in place. They’ve been waiting for one woman to change their fate, and lift the dark magic burden from their pack. Every Halloween has been the same–waiting, watching, failing…and so the wolves of Hollow Rock had accepted their place protecting the town for all of eternity. Callum Ashbrock is the alpha of Hollow Rock, and when his sister calls to say the words he’s been waiting for centuries to hear, he can’t believe the time has finally, finally come. He’s found her. Her. The one he’s been missing for all this time, and she’s finally in his town, just in time for Halloween.

Stacia Wallace has waited her entire life to celebrate her favorite holiday in the town that parties for a full week around the spookiest time of year. Hollow Rock’s Halloween festival is a gathering place for Halloween-goers of all ages, and the stars have finally aligned for her to be right in the middle of the action. Everything is perfect, from the costumes to the spooky hotel accommodations, to the sexy, bright-eyed man who is showing a keen interest in her. She’s here for one week of wild fun, but she has no idea how wild her life is about to get. Callum is interesting and handsome and protective in all the right ways, but she’s slowly finding out things about herself she didn’t know before. And when the weight of the town’s curse falls on her shoulders, she’ll have to choose between saving the man she’s falling for, or saving herself. Nothing is as it seems in Hollow Rock.

Rancher Dragon by Terry Bolryder

Posted July 8, 2021 by Marsha in Owned, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Save a horse, ride a rancher dragon…

Beck is a big, growly mountain of a man with a monster of a dragon inside him. He keeps to himself, only leaving Dragonclaw Ranch when his inner beast feels unsafe for his friends. But when a brush with death makes Beck give a stranger his dragon’s talon coin, he wakes up to a pretty, curvy woman that he now owes a favor. By the way his dragon growls ‘mine’ and ‘mate’, Beck knows it might be safer for them both if he stays away. Until he finds out Sierra’s in danger, and a monster might be just what she needs.

When a huge, gorgeous mountain of a man fell unconscious on Sierra’s land, she didn’t hesitate to ride out and finally meet her intimidating neighbors at Dragonclaw ranch. They all live up to their legends, with gorgeous, silver-eyed Beck catching her eye most of all. But after a grumpy stand-off with Beck, Sierra heads back home, not wanting to cause more trouble. But when Beck shows up and saves her, insisting on staying around, she can hardly say no to the mountain of a man. Especially when all her body wants is to say “yes” to him.

As Beck guards Sierra and helps on her ranch, heat explodes between them under the beautiful western night sky. But Beck knows that even though this is the most happiness he has ever known, Sierra deserves more than a monster with a past soaked in blood. But when danger from multiple quarters comes calling, including a titanic, ancient beast, Beck must make peace with the possessive, giant monster inside him…or lose everything.

Annabelle Faulk is in big trouble. Something unexpected has happened to her that will change the course of her life forever. There’s a man she can’t stop thinking about in Quickdraw, but she is hyper-aware of how she could alter his life as well, and it has the potential to kill his career. When she finally goes to confront him, he doesn’t make it easy to cut ties. In fact, he’s caring toward her, and protective, and all the things she and her wolf have always wanted in a mate. It’s really hard to say a necessary goodbye when goodbye is the last thing on earth she wants to do. Caught between a rock and a hard place, she is now growing that protective instinct to keep him safe from what’s happening. Someone is poisoning the bulls, and Quickdraw is the number one target.
