Quickdraw Slow Burn by T. S. Joyce

Posted April 17, 2021 by Marsha in Owned, Shifter, Shifter Romantic Suspense, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Bucking bull shifter, Quickdraw Slow Burn has had one focus, and one focus alone—winning that coveted title of number one bull in the world at the final Battle of the Bulls event. He’s trained relentlessly for this day, but he’s been drawn into a small herd of other monstrous bull shifters and is figuring out that he doesn’t have to celebrate his successes, or mourn his losses, alone anymore. When he meets Annabelle Faulk at a rodeo, she doesn’t look so intimidating, but she’s got one gnarly wolf residing inside of her. Maybe that’s part of the attraction. Quickdraw has tried and failed to find a match before, but this time is different. One unexpected night with her has him hooked, addicted, and bewitched. But when she finally accepts the plane tickets he’s been sending her to meet up again, she isn’t the same woman he met a month ago. Something has changed in her, and Annabelle’s reserve around him is confusing. It’s messing with his head, right before the biggest bucking event of his life. Annabelle has a big secret; he just can’t figure out what it is.

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. No matter what their future holds, Annabelle and Quickdraw have to keep each other alive…no matter what.

Dead of Winter by T. S. Joyce

Posted April 14, 2021 by Marsha in Owned, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Bucking bull shifter, Dead of Winter is desperately trying to hold onto one of the top three spots in the PBSRC. He’s coming off a shoulder injury though, and he’s looking for something to keep him motivated to put his body through the strain of bucking in rodeos every week. Hints about his past are making it into the public eye, and the pressure on him is bigger than ever, but when he sees a stranger in the crowd at a rodeo, she just might be the key to turning things around. Raven looks like a tough girl, but her sweet demeanor has his bull paying attention. He’s falling way too hard, and way too fast, and he doesn’t know her intentions yet. She’s a Hagan, and those shifters are nothing to mess with. Their inner animals are territorial and ill-tempered, to say the least, but that only adds to Raven’s mystery. She could be the motivation he needs…or his downfall. Only time will tell.

Raven has a plan: meet the bull shifter who can answer questions about her biological family, and ask him how she can control her animal. Meeting Dead of Winter isn’t easy. He’s in town for a rodeo and signing autographs after he bucks, and what starts as a VIP meet-and-greet turns into a week-long adventure of self-discovery, and falling hard for the man who is teaching her all about herself. Her animal isn’t like his, or any of the rest of the herd though. She’s a lean, mean, human-stomping machine and there’s no controlling her once she’s on the loose. Dead’s options are simple—see the animal and run, or see the potential and push her to be bigger than she ever imagined. Her life is taking a drastic turn, and it’s overwhelming and exhilarating. And now, she just needs to make sure Dead, and all the people he loves, survive her.

A Shifter for Christmas by T. S. Joyce

Posted December 23, 2020 by Marsha in Christmas Shifters, Shifter, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Kieran Dunne isn’t worried about the holidays. They will come and go, and he will be left with a big property tax bill from the estate he inherited. His brother finds a newly-listed job in the paper that could match Kieran’s unique abilities. A woman has put an ad out for a shifter for Christmas, and the pay would cover his bills. She’s asked for a non-predator shifter, but he can lie just a little. What could it hurt? He’s just supposed to babysit a crazy lady during the holidays, and then collect his pay and move on with his life. But when he meets Leslie, it’s clear this job is more complicated than he’d anticipated. She isn’t what he thought at all. And the more he understands of her life, the more he doesn’t want to leave her at the conclusion of Christmas Day, as their contract requires.

Leslie Wilson wants to bring a man home for the holidays. She’s tired of ruining her family’s annual parties with her single-ness. She wants a teammate this year to face the Wilson family with her. All her life, her last name has cast a long shadow over her life. All she wants is a simple life, but her family has different plans for her. And what better rebellion than bringing a date to the holiday celebrations than hiring a real-life shifter? Her sister’s fancy husbands might be rich, but they don’t turn into animals. It’s a simple contract, but when Kieran shows up at her door, she realizes fast that there is nothing simple about her feelings for him. Now she must walk the line this holiday season—pretend to be in love without actually falling in love.

And if she can accomplish that? She just might make it to New Years’ still human.

Two Shots Down by T. S. Joyce

Posted December 3, 2020 by Marsha in Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

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.

Love Her Better by T. S. Joyce

Posted July 20, 2020 by Marsha in Shifter, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Cassidy Joiner is focused on one thing, and one thing only—her growing horse training business. Her Dad gave her the family farm a few years back, and now she has the challenge of making it run. When a handsome stranger stomps in asking for help training a monstrous horse, she knows she has a huge challenge ahead of her. Both rider and horse are similar, and why she’s a professional at reading horses, she’s never been able to read a man. Until now. Samuel Kaid’s name precedes him. The Kaids own the biggest ranch in these parts, but he isn’t like his brothers. He speaks strangely and clearly doesn’t understand much about people. When he asks her to train him to be more human, she knows she’s in over her head. No wonder she understands him. Sam shows her an animal side that her horse training only begins to prepare her for. Damaged monster. So why does she feel so safe around him?

Sam Kaid doesn’t know much about himself anymore. Most of his memories come from the last three years when he was living in the woods and obeying the orders of a murderous alpha. He’s convinced that he will never fit into the legacy his brothers are building because he’s not like them anymore. All he knows is fighting. When he takes a broken horse to a beautiful local horse trainer, Cassidy, he knows he’s stumbled onto someone important. She sees him. She gets him. She’s patient with his animal ways. And maybe, just maybe, his wolf will settle enough to actually keep her safe.

Lift Her Up by T.S. Joyce

Posted April 17, 2020 by Marsha in Shifter, Shifter Connected, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

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.

Everyone has Hunter Kaid all wrong. Even his own brother writes him off as unintelligent, but not all smarts are the same. He just needs one person to understand him and listen to what he’s really saying. All of his life, he’s been searching for that one person who really takes the time to see him, and just when he’s about given up, he stumbles upon Sadey. She’s hurt one of his pack-mates, and his loyalty to his people wars with his interest in this human woman with a sad smile and a good heart. He might not be the brightest apple in the bunch, but he has a talent for seeing the good in people, and Sadey Lawklin is oozing with goodness that he can’t ignore. A hurt woman like her needs time and patience before he tries to change her life, but the closer she gets to him, the more his inner wolf wants to claim her. And now he can’t tell who is in more danger—himself, or her.

Sadey Lawklin is in the armpit of her life. She’s dug herself into a hole that will be nearly impossible to dig out of, and the very first thing she needs to do is apologize to the people she’s hurt before she can heal herself. She has a plan to turn her entire life around in a matter of weeks, but one thing she didn’t plan on is another man sniffing around her. This is the worst timing to get attached to someone, and especially someone as agile and deadly as a Kaid Brother. No one messes with the Kaids. Everyone in town knows who they are, but they haven’t figured out what they are. And when Sadey discovers Hunter’s deep, dark, and terrifying secret, she’s sucked down a rabbit hole that just might break her…unless the watchful wolf who has chosen her can Make Her New.

Steal Her Heart by T. S. Joyce

Posted December 22, 2019 by Marsha in Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Maris Thurgood is in deep trouble. Abandoned to care for a ranch on her own, she’s struggling from sunup to sundown to keep up with the work. When a pack of werewolves begins preying on her herd, she has no choice but to sell. A chance meeting at the cattle auction has her wondering why someone as tall, dark, and growly as Bryson Locke would take any interest in a business venture with her. He’s got one rule for her, and that is to never go outside past sundown while he’s hunting the wolves. But what she starts realizing about him…Bryson Locke is much more dangerous than the pack of predators that are hunting her.

Bryson didn’t get to be the Ranch Manager at the Kaid Brother’s Ranch by accident. He has a certain set of skills that allows him to protect the massive herd from predators. For a couple of years now, he’s been spinning his wheels and looking for a purpose, and one lands right in his lap in the form of the beautiful, curvy, spitfire who has trouble written all over her. Why would a pack of werewolves terrorize this woman? And more importantly, why does he care so much? Pride is everything for a rancher, and Maris has it in excess. She has her guard up and has obviously been hurt before, but the more he gets to know of her, the more he wants to find out why she’s being targeted by the wolves…and that answer might get them both killed.

Mae Dafoe is back in her hometown chasing ghosts. She’s forgotten what it’s like to be around her big crazy family, and it’s a big adjustment coming from the life she’s created for herself in the years she’s been gone. Three days here, and then she can go back to her apartment in the city, and far away from the swamps of Uncertain. All she needs is closure. But when she finds one of the ghosts she’s been chasing, she’s shocked to find he isn’t a ghost at all, but a shifter. The old Cole that she knew doesn’t exist anymore, but as she gets to know this sexy, dangerous, growly New Cole…she starts thinking about the life she left behind. Pulled between two very different worlds, she has to decide on a damaging past and an uncertain future…and somehow survive them both.

Cole Jennings goes by the name Fargo now. Might as well, since he’s a dog most of the time. He’s hidden what happened to him from the entire town, but a girl he used to know is back in his territory, scratching at his secrets. He has one job to do, and that’s to keep the Lachlan gators and their mates protected, but Mae DaFoe is pulling at his instincts to let the animal inside of him go and to be a better man. She’ll have to wait for him to finish his hunt though because he has a grudge that won’t ever go away. If he can just keep her away from him for a little while longer, maybe he can keep her safe, too.
