The Way to a Bear’s Heart: Paranormal Dating Agency (Aurora Champions Book 1)

“Sorry,” he finally managed, though his timing was so off he may as well have been apologizing for the size of the shirt.

“It’ll do,” she said, her lips quirking into a sweet smile, which slowly bled into a chuckle.

Perplexed at first, he frowned at her. Then the absurdity of the situation hit him and he laughed. “You just help yourself to my closet, Nessa. Don’t mind me.”

Bell, Ophelia. The Way to a Bear’s Heart: Paranormal Dating Agency (Aurora Champions Book 1) (pp. 47-48). MTW Press. Kindle Edition.

Nessa Baxter’s about to get everything she wants. A close friend has offered Nessa her dream job as his personal chef. But can Gerri Wilder, Nova Aurora’s matchmaking miracle-worker, find Nessa her dream mate?

After years of waiting, Nessa’s pretty sure she’s a lost cause. But then she meets strong, sexy Gaius, a bear shifter bachelor whose skills with his tools will be instrumental in building her the kitchen of her dreams. Lonely and aloof, the dominating former Arena Champion seems the perfect match for strong-willed Nessa. But if that were true, wouldn’t the matchmaker they’ve both placed their trust in have matched them up already?

Gerri’s silence is telling; Nessa doesn’t want to get close to anyone she’s not going to have a future with, and Gaius isn’t sure he’s ready to have a future with anyone at all. The trouble is, the bossy she-bear has lit a fire in him that can’t easily be quenched, and her skills in the kitchen are going straight to his heart.

About Ophelia Bell

Ophelia Bell is the author of the super steamy Sleeping Dragons series. Ophelia loves hot alpha heroes, especially if they’re dragons, but believes the world needs more alpha heroines, so has made it her mission to make that happen. Ophelia grew up on a rural farm in North Carolina and now lives in Los Angeles with her sexy tattooed alpha husband and five-and-a-half attention-whoring cats (one of them is exceptionally large and might actually be a dragon in disguise).

What I Thought:

Love the New Series! Great return to this planet. A new couple to enjoy and follow. Ophelia has crafted a wonderful addition to the original Paranormal Dating Agency world.

“Ooh, Gerri Wilder, matchmaker on a mission. Taking names and kicking ass, calling it like she sees it.” Riley laughed.

Henley smirked. “Shut up, Ri.”

“So, what do you think?” Ivy asked, rocking the baby in her arms. “You’re a smart cookie. Gerri’s right. The guys will be back soon. Find an opening and go for the kill.”

A slow smile spread on Henley’s face. “When you put it that way, how can I resist?”

Bearfoot and Pregnant (Paranormal Dating Agency #10)

“When was the last time you went out with a nice guy who treated you right?” Gerri asked. She might have thought the question a joke if there wasn’t real interest in Gerri’s eyes.

“Seriously?”

Gerri’s brows dipped over her beautiful blue eyes. “Yes.” Then she smiled. “Too many to remember?”

“Hardly. How about never.” She could have probably changed that to at least once if she had taken Massimo up on his offer, but she had a feeling he was more interested in a booty call than an actual date.

Gerri’s eyes widened in surprise. “Now you are the one messing with me.”

“Nope. Not even a little.” She shrugged. “As nice as I try to be, most men don’t care about a woman’s personality. It’s her body they are more concerned with and I don’t have one that is ‘sexy.’”

“Says who?”

“Um, every man I’ve ever met, dated, and the one jerk I was married to for six months.”

Taiden, Milly. Bearfoot and Pregnant: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 10) . Latin Goddess Press Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Cassandra Grimaldi’s boss has lost her mind. Too bad. She really liked the fiery matchmaker. But when Gerri offers to prove aliens are real and multiple orgasms exist, Cassie can’t help but be curious. Who would say no to orgasms and aliens? Not this curvy girl!

What’s a bear to do when his mate leaves him after he’s mated her? Talen Arctos goes to Earth to claim sassy and curvy Cassie. Now if only he could figure out how to convince her to return to his planet with him without offending her…again.

With a brother wreaking havoc in his clan and his pregnant mate thinking she’s a one-night stand, Talen has his work cut out for him. Good thing this bear isn’t letting his woman go. Even if he has to learn what groveling means.

This couple was really quite cute. Cass didn’t believe Gerri until she proved it. Talen forgot that Cass wasn’t from Aurora. What else could have gone wrong for them. The writing, as always, is top notch and engaging. The couples totally believable.

Rebel Bear (Aloha Shifters – Pearls of Desire #2)

“Are you crazy?” her mother hissed as the crowd erupted into shocked chatter.

“How could you?” Hailey rubbed her eyes. “You knew what Jonathan was planning, and you didn’t say a word.”

“Of course I didn’t. You would have said no.”

Hailey stared. “And you really think I’m going to say yes now?”

“Of course you will. In front of all these people — how could you spoil everything?”

Hailey’s eyes went wide. This could not be happening. But it was, as her mother indicated by grabbing both of Hailey’s shoulders.

“Think. Just think for a change.”

Hailey’s head snapped up. For a change?

“This is our chance. I mean, your chance.” Her mother corrected herself quickly.

“Chance at…?”

“Securing a future. Making it big. Jonathan’s brother is running for Senate, and you know it won’t be long before Jonathan does too.”

Lowe, Anna. Rebel Bear (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 2) (pp. 12-13). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Up-and-coming supermodel Hailey Crewe can’t wait to escape the limelight and return to the modest, anonymous lifestyle she once led. Escaping literally? That was never part of her plan. But when an unwanted suitor — and her scheming mother/manager — go a step too far with a surprise Hawaii wedding, Hailey becomes a bride on the run. Before she knows it, she’s not only being hunted by a greedy oil tycoon, but by his creepy security force, too. A good thing she bumps into her very own Lancelot at exactly the right time.

Bear shifter Timber Hoving is just another Special Forces vet slowly adjusting to island time. That is, until an irresistible stranger rushes into his meticulously organized world. Before Tim knows it, his human side is wrestling with temptation, and his bear is head-over-heels in love. But Hailey’s first encounter with shifters is a terrifying one, and Tim can’t reveal the truth about himself without losing her. Worse, sinister shifter forces are closing in, following a ruthless agenda of their own. They’ll stop at nothing to capture Tim’s destined mate — dead or alive.

Yet another fabulous story in Ms. Lowe’s new series. I love how one leads to another and another. Visits by couples from the other series are always welcome!

Bear in Mind (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 23)

Geri Wilder and Barbara Wolfe team up!

Summer nodded and waved bye to Barbara before walking out. As soon as the door shut, Barbara broke into loud laughter. “You are the most devious woman I’ve ever met. But that young lady does need a good orgasm. So, who do you have in mind?”

“I think this is one case I won’t have to do much meddling. If my senses are correct, she should be meeting her mate at the elevator right about now. My job will be to keep pushing them together and make sure the stubborn girl doesn’t send him away.”

Taiden, Milly. Bear in Mind (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 23) . Latin Goddess Press, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

But Teddy knows he shouldn’t have time for the sassy beauty. Even if she does have curves in all the right places. But he can’t stay away.

A must read and a keeper to reread again and again. This is my new favorite PDA book!!!

Debra B

What I Thought:

I’m being kind. There was just something that didn’t sit well with me. This just seems rushed and not so enjoyable. I can’t even put my finger on the problem. But I did enjoy seeing the matriarch from the Sassy Mates series visiting an old friend!

Lure of the Bear (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart #3)

Secrets. Fears. Burning desires. A bear shifter willing to risk everything for love.

They stood facing each other for a full minute, speechless. Any second, Hunter figured, his brief stint in heaven would be over — just being close to Dawn was heaven — so he imprinted the moment onto his mind. A wisp of hair had strayed out of her single braid, and the sea breeze twirled it exactly the way he fantasized about doing himself. The sun shone from high overhead, casting her face into smooth fields of shadow and light. When her gaze wandered to his chest then snapped back to his eyes, her throat bobbed with a tiny swallow.

Hunter gulped, too, because it was happening again. That magical aura that overwhelmed him every time he came close to his mate. The sensation that rose out of nowhere and wound around the two of them, locking the outside world away. The hum of passing cars, the scratch of insects in the surrounding scrub — all sound faded until the only thing Hunter heard was the beat of his heart. All he saw was the faint rise and fall of Dawn’s shoulders with each deep breath. Her face was bright and clear, but everything else grew blurry, as if the sun was slowly turning a lens and focusing all its light on her.

This is your mate. A whisper came from somewhere deep in the earth. This is your destiny.

Dawn’s eyes shone brighter, and she leaned forward slightly.

She needs you as much as you need her, the voice said, coaxing him along.

Anna Lowe. Lure of the Bear (Kindle Locations 280-291). Twin Moon Press.

There’s not much that can get this grizzly shifter worked up — except a threat to the woman he has secretly loved for years. Then, all bets are off, and he’s willing to risk anything — including the most closely guarded secret of his lonely shifter soul.

Trust issues? Officer Dawn Meli has a few. She’s not ready to rely on any man — especially one who can turn into a raging beast. But strong, silent Hunter, with his steady voice and soulful eyes, calls to something deep in her scarred soul. So much so, that she’s dangerously tempted to let her wild side free. At the same time, she has other problems to concentrate on, what with a valuable gem, a celebrity wedding, and a tropical storm all converging on Maui at the same time. Hardly the time to give in to simmering desire — even if destiny has different ideas.

Be Still My Beating Heart! Another great story from one terrific writer! There were times I wanted to stand up and cheer for this couple. There were also times when I wanted to shake them. Wonderful!

Geek Bearing Gifts (Paranormal Dating Agency #2)

A BBW in search of love + A sexy shifter who secretly loved her = Smokin’ Roaring Romance

“I want a man to want me for me.” Hearing the words come out of her mouth made her wince. A troubled knot tightened around her heart, clasping her normal self-assurance in a vice grip. “I wasn’t wanted by boys growing up. Most girls didn’t want to be around the fat girl. When someone did take the time to talk to me, they wanted something, and that something was usually to make fun of me.”

Taiden, Milly. Geek Bearing Gifts (Paranormal Dating Agency, Book 2) . Latin Goddess Press. Kindle Edition.

Nita Islas wants to find love. She’s tired of the superficial relationships and is ready to give true romance a try. She uses the Paranormal Dating Agency and hopes they can help her where all others have failed. What she didn’t expect was to find her date flat on his back in nothing more than a towel.

Ky Stone has been in love with curvy and funny Nita since they were in High School. When she moved away, she took his heart with her. Then one day Ky wakes up to find her leaning over him. He’s sure he’s died and gone to heaven. He has no idea what she’s doing there, but he’s sure as hell not letting her leave.

Fate, meddling family and the PDA have brought them together again. The chemistry between them is explosive. But there’s problems with Ky’s neighboring clan and he’s keeping secrets from Nita. He needs to find a way to open up to her or lies and unexpected danger could tear them apart…forever.

Mrs Wilder is fantastic as a matchmaker. The world building is something you have to read to believe. There’s humor and romance a plenty in this delightful story. What appeals to me is the leads to the next story. Which, by the way, I can’t wait to read!🤗

#Deception #BlueMoonSaloon5

Nothing is more dangerous than forbidden love.

She stared at him then shook her head. “Isn’t it wrong for me to want you after what I did?”

“You did what you were forced to do. And wrong?” He took her by the shoulders. “You didn’t do anything. Hate is wrong. Love… Love is right.”

“Love?”

He nodded firmly. “God, Summer. From the second I met you, I wanted you. I still want you. For forever, I mean.”

She bit her lip. “I knew it before I even saw you. Even before you stepped in the door, I knew.”

“So why fight it? Don’t you feel it, too?”

“I feel it,” she murmured, but she still looked so sad. As if she was determined to deny herself happiness for the rest of her life.

Lowe, Anna. Deception (Blue Moon Saloon Book 5) . Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

She-wolf Summer Smith is desperate to make up for a past she can’t deny — and the best way to accomplish that is to take on a deadly mission for her new pack. She’ll sacrifice anything to clear her name and protect the people she loves. With the future of shifters across the Southwest resting in her hands, it’s the worst possible time to fall in love — with a bear, no less.

Burly bear shifter Drew Kovacs hasn’t traveled to the Southwest to look for trouble, and he sure isn’t looking for love. But the second he lays eyes on the she-wolf with a mesmerizing smile and haunted eyes, he knows she’s the one. There’s just one problem — Summer is about to plunge head-first into danger, and he sure as hell won’t let her go alone. But he can’t show up and blow her undercover mission, either. Unless…

Wonderful!! What a great way to wrap up a storyline! Each couple in this series have been so interesting. I can’t wait to see what else the author comes up with!

Salvation (Blue Moon Saloon #4)

One hero, assumed dead. One woman who refuses to give up. One destiny.

Todd padded into the room and squatted down beside her. His chest was bare, his sweatpants low on his hips. He tilted his head at her, and his eyes showed the kind of pain only a man who’d experienced terrible things knew.

He sat on the bed and wrapped his thick arms around her. He tucked his chin over her head, enveloping her completely in what felt like a cloak of steel, and rocked her a little, promising nothing would get past him — no evil, real or perceived.

“I’m okay. I’m okay,” she managed a minute or two later, even though she never wanted him to let go.

He didn’t let go, thank goodness. Not for a long, long time, even after her breathing slowed and the sweat dried on her forehead. He kept right on holding her, and she had the distinct impression the comforting feeling wasn’t a one-way thing. Had her nightmares brought back visions of his own? Had she reminded him of something he’d rather have left in the past?

“It’s okay,” she murmured, swaying slowly with him.

Lowe, Anna. Salvation (Blue Moon Saloon Book 4) (Kindle Locations 865-873). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Anna Boone won’t give up the search for her cousin, Sarah, who everyone assumes dead. And she refuses to give up on the wounded bear found next to the ashes of her cousin’s house. There’s something deep in his eyes and in his soul she just can’t resist. Something special. Something…human, almost. When her search for the truth leads her to the Blue Moon Saloon, Anna finds more than she ever bargained for — and unwittingly leads a deadly foe to those she loves most.

Wow! By the time I reached the end of this story, I was absolutely in tears. The story just reaches out and grabs your heart. I couldn’t believe that Todd and Anna finally got together. This was just so great. I’m sitting here on pins and needles waiting for the next book in this series!

Damnation (Blue Moon Saloon #1)

Jessica Macks is a she-wolf on the run from a band of murderous rogues. When she finds a job at a shifter bar, it seems like a safe haven from her hunted life on the road. But the minute she walks through the swinging doors of the Blue Moon Saloon and comes face-to-face with the man she once loved, she’s tempted to march right back out. No way, no how is she risking her heart to that infuriating alpha bear again.

Simon Voss thought he lost everything in an ambush months before: his home, his family, his past. His new job at the Blue Moon Saloon is a desperately needed fresh start on life. Then along comes Jessica, the irresistible she-wolf his clan forced him to reject years before. When Simon is obliged to hire Jessica and work side by side with the one woman to ever make his bear go wild, he’s half in heaven, half in hell. He hasn’t forgotten her, and she sure as hell hasn’t forgiven him. Is this just another path to heartbreak or his last chance to claim his destined mate?

Lowe, Anna. Damnation – Bonus Edition (Kindle Locations 665-672). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Jessica was worn out and tired of running. She’d gotten aid from the most powerful pack in the desert Southwest and now all she wanted was a job and a place to live for herself and her sister. She thought she’d found that in the Saloon Tina Hawthorne ushered them into. Then the brothers who were running the place came out. It was Soren and Simon Voss.

Simon wasn’t sure he could do this. Jessica was the one he’d loved and pushed away all those years ago. But he didn’t have a choice. They owed the Twin Moon pack. The least they could do was to give the girls a chance at a fresh start.

But when their joint past snuck back in, would Jessica give him a second chance. Their problems started with a human child lost in the forest around a campground. A forest fire burning near by. A photo of Jessica in the newspaper. What next???

The starting point for yet another wonderful series from this author! The ties to the first series are everywhere, yet this one is distinctly different! It is something to read!
