Emily Green grew up on stories of magical forests, enchanted beasts, and happily ever after… but then she learned that life isn’t a fairy tale. Now a determined investigative reporter, she’s not the type to sit around waiting for Prince Charming to rescue her. But when her pursuit of a story brings her face to face with a terrifying enemy, even an independent woman like Emily needs help from a hero…
Park ranger Gabriel Allen thinks he’s a monster. A griffin shifter who has never known any other shifters, he’s spent his life isolated and alone to hide his secret. But when he rescues Emily from deadly peril, he realizes that there are worse monsters out there… and that he’ll do anything to protect this brave, beautiful woman from them.
Can two lonely people break the walls they’ve built around their hearts and find their happily ever after? And can they discover the truth about Gabriel’s past and Emily’s enemies in time to save each other from the danger closing in on them?
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Ranger Griffin is a short, sexy, engaging Shifter Romance that hits all the right buttons for enjoyment. It’s a Stand Alone Title – although there are two secondary characters that I would certainly love to learn more about at some point in time. There are always possibilities.
Emily is making the trek into the small towns surrounding a beautiful national forest during the winter. There have been reports of a, well unimaginable creature and she’d convinced her boss that the story was worth investigating. Okay, so the reports of a prehistoric like flying creature is the stuff of fancy and childhood, as an investigative reporter that “what if” is always running through her mind. The very last thing she expected was to have that thing of imagination run her off the road – or to meet a man who would be the answer to all her dreams.
Gabriel was making one last flight over the parts of the forest he considered his area. As a monster in his own words, the flight in his Griffin form was rather easy as he and his Griffin kept watch for humans in danger or at risk from their own foolishness. The storm was getting worse and he was close to turning for home when he spotted a car where it certainly should not be – high up in the branches of the trees. In his search for the survivors of that wreck he had no idea that he’d be searching for the woman who was his future – his mate.
I had fun with Ranger Griffin. Emily and Gabriel are perfectly matched, and each brings something unique to the other. Their romance is certainly hot and sexy, but the charm of the story is clearly the acceptance and the freedom that this couple gives freely between them. The answer to the bizarre sighting that sent Emily here in the first place is both terrifying and somewhat amusing as well… and it adds in possibilities for some secondary characters to one day have their stories told, at least I can hope for that.
I would not hesitate to recommend this title for any Shifter Romance or Paranormal Romance reader who enjoys a good story, likable characters and a hint of mystery.
