Eight years later, she sends a request to the new Alpha—she wants to come home, and when he grants it, she’s both relieved and terrified. The first person she runs into is the last one who ever wants to see her again.
Leaping the fence, he stalked around the house to disabuse the youths of their indiscretion. At the corner, a familiar scent ambushed him and every muscle in his body went rigid. His wolf’s head came up and they both studied the car waiting with the door open. An old Pinto, rusted and dilapidated the damn thing leaked fuel and coolant—he could smell both—but it wasn’t those acrid and sickly sweet scents aggravating him. No, it was…the screen door slammed and she walked out of the house. Her head whipped to the side as she spun to face him. Her eyes held the faint glow of her wolf. Always long-legged and tall, she’d blossomed into a beautiful, curvaceous woman. Her feet were bare and her shorts revealed deeply tanned legs. A man’s shirt fit her awkwardly, and she’d tied the ends together into a makeshift tank and rolled the sleeves to reveal her equally tan arms. Long hair—she’d always had the most beautiful long hair, satiny and shimmery under the sun. How he craved the sight of that hair, and he’d ordered her never to cut it, but it was gone. Her hair barely fell below her ears, chopped to what his sister would call a bob, and revealed the slender column of her vulnerable throat. Claire Webster was home. Long, Heather.

Second chances are something that everyone deserves. The really nice thing is that second chances are not just for the old. Sometime, even the young need a second chance.
Tyler Buckley was born the youngest of the Buckley triplets. At the ripe old age of 5, he looked across a playground and saw his mate. As he understood it, that meant it was up to him to keep her safe. Unfortunately, in his mind, keeping her safe meant only letting her be friends with others that he approved of.
Claire Webster grew up in the house next door to the Buckley’s. Which could have been nice except for Tyler. When they were both children, Tyler declared that he was her mate and started to try to run her life. When a Hunter from Sutter Butte came to visit on business from his Alpha, he offered Claire something Tyler never had, a choice.
Years later, Tyler is startled to hear noises coming from the empty Webster house. He can’t believe what he finds there. Mason has granted Claire the opportunity to rejoin the pack. Will these two take advantage of their second chance?

The scent of destiny…the danger in desire.
The phantom. It happened years ago, after he’d been away from the ranch on business. The minute he got back, it hit like a heat wave in the height of summer. A scent. A female scent carried on the wind touched him—no, kneed him right in the gut—then vanished. Overcome by the need to claim, he’d roamed all over the desert. He spent weeks searching, every keen wolf sense tuned in to tracking the source. But she was gone—or she never existed, except as a hint on the wind that teased him to ruin. He would never love, never want anyone again.Lowe, Anna. Desert Moon (The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch Book 1) (p. 17). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.
Anna freely admits on her website that she envisions Packs as having the same type of structure as a feudal society. I can clearly see that in this series. Ty is the strong, silent, brooding type. Lana is not!
Romeo and Juliette have nothing on the feud between the Hawthornes and the Dixon’s. Things are so bad that Ty’s father declared that he would kill any Dixon found on his ranch.
Twelve years ago Ty Hawthorn caughet the scent of a woman in the wind over his Ranch. Despite searching for her every where, he never found the woman his pack began to call “The Phantom “.
Lana Dixon visited Arizona once years ago with her aunt. There she caught a hint of a male that she wanted to get to know. All too soon, she had to return to her home in New England.
As Lana returns to Arizona to help her aunt retire to her friend’s home, she scents that same male once again. This time the only things standing in her way is a pack of rogues, a bitter Alpha, and the knowledge of what happened all those years ago.

There’s a number of different series that I return to, time and time again. A couple that I’ve read ARC copies of, others that I stumbled onto. I tend to return to some of them over and over again. It’s a shame that the authors only get paid once for me reading the book. For authors that utilize Kindle Unlimited, after I’ve read the ARC copy, I check the book out of KU to review it. That way, they get paid for my reading.
I have to admit, I adore the ones that, after you read the first series, there is a spinoff series following it. A good example is Anna Lowe’s “Twin Moon Ranch.” After you read this series, she followed it with “Blue Moon Saloon”, “Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart”, “Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire”. She’s currently working on a new series called “Fire Maidens”.
Another series you’ll hear about is “Grace Godwin’s “Interstellar Brides.” This is another author who writes interwoven series. There is the “Interstellar Brides”, “The Colony,” “The Virgins,” and “Ascension.”
There’s more series to be added, but I think I’ll start with these. 😁
