Interstellar Brides® Program Book 14: Claimed By The Vikens

May the best male win…

The only thing former Coalition warriors Calder, Zed and Axon have in common are long years spent battling the Hive, and their eagerness to claim their personal reward—their own Interstellar Bride.

When news arrives on Viken that each of the warriors has been matched, they gather at the transport station only to receive two unwelcome surprises.

First, they are all matched to the same woman, and not one of them is inclined to share. Second, their mate has refused them. She won’t leave Earth and transport to Viken. Won’t give any of them a chance to win her heart.

But these warriors will not back down from a challenge. When one states his intention to travel to Earth and retrieve his mate, the others will not allow him to make the journey alone. Their mate will be seduced. Claimed. One by one, they will tame her. Make her their own.

What I will remember about this delightful book is that a putting together a family of four separate people takes time and some compromises. The men were at first competitive individuals. It took more time for them to realize that they were better together than they could ever be as individuals or couples.

When danger struck, they worked as a team to take down the guilty party. They put their bride, Violet and her love for her sister, Mindy, ahead of their own needs.

If You've been reading Grace Goodwin's stories, You'll love this on every bit as the others. If your new to Grace Goodwin's Sci-Fi romances, you've a treat ahead of you with this book. Grace is a gifted writer. You won't feel like your missing a big chuck of world-building or backstory. Just dive in and ENJOY!

I have purchased every book in the Interstellar Bride series - both the mainline and the offshoots (the Colony and the Virgins) and I have never been disappointed in any of the books. While my favorites in the series are any that involve Atlans and the Vikens are my least favoites, Grace Goodwin always writes a good story. Grace's characters and worlds are well developed and intriguing and her plots suck you into the story quickly and never lull.

I won't give away any spoilers, but the blurb only scratches the surface of what this story is really about. The fact that these three Vikens were not expecting to share a mate (unlike the previous Viken book) gave the author the chance to slowly bring these three Vikens together, despite their differing ways of claiming a mate and their desire to not share her. Violet's reason for refusing transport to Viken is a what really drives the story and as it is such a fantastic twist to the Interstellar Bride series - I won't say any more about it.

As I skim over the sexy parts (because I prefer story to titillation), I would say that there are enough and that they do not over power the story. The conclusion gives us a perfect solution to Violet's problem.

If you have not read any of the Interstellar Brides books, I would not start with this one. I would suggest reading the other three Viken books before this one, as many little threads from other books are woven into this story and may leave you a little perplexed at times (even though the author did an awesome job of briefly explaining everything).

This was another great Interstellar Brides book. In this one, Violet is mated to three Viken warriors who thought they were individually going to find a mate. Violet agrees to the match and before she is shipped off to meet them on their planet, she discovers she has not been matched to the same planet as her twin sister. That has her calling off the match. The guys go after her, traveling to Florida to fetch her. She has 30 days to decide if she wants to be mated to any of the men. There is a bit of drama, steam and danger in the book as well as a discovery of what constitutes a family.. It explores what one would do to save their family or make their family happy.

Just got pulled into this one. Loved the human Female.....Such attitude and not taking crap from anyone. That includes her three alien mates, Calder,Axon, and Zed. They sure were not planning on shring a mate when it came through that they had a human bride waiting for them. But they had to come together when Violet decided at the last minute to back out. The plan was to go to where her sister was, not a different planet and not with three mates. This book was awesome and fun and sexy and just plain great to read. Has some alien action and lots of sexy alien sex with three larger then life males that know what they are doing.

Interstellar Brides® Program Book 12: Fighting For Their Mate

Once a commander with the Intelligence Core for the Coalition Fleet, a mission gone wrong forced Chloe to return to Earth injured and dishonored. But she’s seen too much and is restless in civilian life. This drives her to do whatever it takes to return to space, to where she belongs, so she volunteers as an Interstellar Bride. She’s shocked to discover her mate is human, but he’s like no one else she’s ever met…and he’s taken a second, a huge Prillon warrior equally determined to seduce her body and win her heart.

ReCon Captain Seth Mills lost both of his brothers to the Hive and vows to continue fighting. His bride is an unwelcome shock and he agrees to the Prillon custom of taking a second to protect the innocent woman destined to be his. No matter how determined he is to resist her allure, one touch, one kiss, and he knows he can never let her go.

Although she surrenders to their dominant touch, Chloe is no innocent. She’s a commander with secrets she can’t share. And when the entire Battlegroup is caught in a deadly Hive trap, she’s the only one who can save them all, no matter the cost. But Chloe’s mates won’t let her go into battle alone. No matter the risk, they’re willing to sacrifice everything…and fight for their mate.

GOD, I LOVE this series and the ...
spinoff series “The Colony” (which is my favorite, but not enough stories in that line yet). I love not just the romance but the UNIVERSE that GG has created with this series! It’s more than just a world build for this very clever sci-fi series but a more elaborate universe that encompasses sci-fi, romance, adventure, discovery and intense danger.

GG has created something so filling it’s up there with Star Trek, Star Wars or Dr Who. All this while being an adult erotica and a gripping read! I found this series when I was searching for sci-fi romance and boy I have NOT been disappointed. Although I get bored with all the sex scenes (in all the books there are ALOT of them and very graphic!) I think it’s definitely more a sci-fi story. The investment into the creation of this universe is extensive and really should not be over looked.

GG hurry and write more! I like to pile them up (a few books) and then binge read them all at once! I can’t get enough of the Atlans, Prillons and Warden Egara! I like all the other species too but those are my favorites. I’m also interested in the possibility of rescuing more assimilated hive drones. I love there stories in “The Colony”. Maybe one day learning more about the Hive and defeating them! ☺️

Fabulous adventure
Wow, what a fabulous adventure. Chloe was a former special ops type of warrior who had almost gotten killed because of a co-worker. He had placed the blame for the failed mission so she had been returned to Earth, working as a 911 operator and never being allowed to return to work. She signs up for the Interstellar Bride program thinking she will be sent to some other planet but is, instead, sent to a battle ship to meet her mates. The Commander of the ship finds out about her top secret background and she is recruited to do the same type of job she had previously done. She is such a strong warrior and to have a female holding such power was fabulous. The fact she out ranks her mates is frosting on the cake. There is steamy sex between mates, dangerous battles and much more happening in this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I've read some of the Interstellar Bride books and they were great but this one was out of this world!

Can't wait till the next book
YEAH! I love these stories. And the fact that we have a human mate, male in the mix makes it so much more fun. I'm glad to read that Seth finally found happiness. He and his best friend, Dorian a Prillian, work so great together. Toss in Chloe with her skill and intell. I love when the women have a stronger role. Even though we know they all have secrets do to their missions and jobs it is interesting to find out more and more about the Hive. The Hive is more of a threat then ever before. But with what Chloe knows and our two guys loving and protecting her, we will crack this.

I cant wait for what is to come next. Perhaps Commander Karter with find someone or even Warlord Anghar or even our Warden with the Interstellar Bride. They all need to find love. Perhaps all them together.

Love This Book-Plenty of Action
I am obsessed with Grace Goodwin's books, and they get better and better. I skipped over the 2nd chapter which detailed Chloe's dream during her bride processing time, because the dreams the brides have in the processing center are about sex, and I've already read enough of those. Other than that each story is unique, and I love the story line in this one. Chloe is intelligent and has high ranking in the coalition. She has a key role in helping to save thousands and is a true heroin. Her mates are a human and a Prillon, and although they have a few surprises in getting to know her, they are wonderfully supportive to her with a desire to protect her as well.

Hour of the Lion (The Wild Hunt Legacy Book 1)

“Put Victoria with two Alpha brothers, and wow, oh wow, your socks will be knocked off.”

First a Marine, then a black ops agent, Victoria Morgan knows the military is where she belongs…until a sniper’s bullet changes her life. Trying to prove she’s not washed up, she rescues a young man from kidnappers. When the dying boy transforms into a cougar—and bites her—she learns of an entire hidden society. He begs her to inform his grandfather of his death and to keep the secret of the shifters’ existence. She can’t refuse, but what if the creatures pose a danger to the country she swore to protect?

As guardian of the shifter territory, Calum McGregor wields the power of life and death over his people. When a pretty human female arrives in their wilderness town, he and his littermate become increasingly concerned. Not only is the little female hiding something, but she is far more appealing than any human should be.

While investigating the shifters, Victoria begins to fall in love with the werecat brothers and the town as well. For the first time in her life, she might have a real home. Her hopes are crushed when a deadly enemy follows her from the city, and the shifters discover she knows their secret. Now nobody is safe—least of all Victoria.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot sex, believable characters
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2019Verified Purchase
This book starts with a high tension scene and pulls you in immediately. The author has created a heroine who behaves consistently given her background and the plot complications that develop because of her choices grow out of her character. I enjoyed this book even though the sex the heroine had with one of the two men was mildly dom/sub and that's not my thing. The author skirts the problem of not having a safe word because the participants are emotionally linked and he knows that she's only unsure and doesn't actually mean "No." That didn't work for me. However the sex with the other man felt mutually passionate and joyful.

The relationships were more developed than just sex, making the emotional dilemmas believable.This is the first in a series and Sinclair does a good job of creating an entire community to set future stories in. I'll be looking for Book 2.

This book is so good even after reading it multiple times. It is the start of a great series with lots of world building, and I still pick up new details on re-reads. It's a paranormal story set in the mountains and while being paranormal \supernatural it's a subtler feeling take on it. It feels rooted in history and legend, maybe with things lost over time but not gone. It's paranormal with shifters and far and demons and such but it's not eccentric, or overly dramatic if that makes sense. This story does have its own HEA but there is a kind of large over-arching story / problem that continues into future books. And the romance is hot. It's to me this kind of slow burn meets fast burn. It's also a menage/why choose type love where the men are solely romantically focused on the woman. That being said doesn't mean there's not some hot, interesting, and group activities that take place. All the characters in this story are well developed and I loved them all but that didn't mean There wasn't also moments I wanted to shake them. If you like paranormal even a little or maybe want to get your feet wet, or you like some suspense and actions of your just looking for a hot romance you've found it. Would definitely recommend.

Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4: Lure of the Tiger

Ruthless assassin or irresistible bodyguard?

Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn’t trust humans. He doesn’t trust destiny either — not even when it sends him the one woman capable of saving his tormented soul. But there’s more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces gather on sunny Maui, intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers. Before he knows it, Cruz becomes the last line of defense between pure evil and the sapphire — and the only one capable of saving his destined mate’s life.

Footloose and carefree? Not anymore. Jody Monroe, pro surfer, is a woman on a mission — until an unknown gunman turns her world upside down. She escapes thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger with haunting, yellow-green eyes who arouses all her fears — and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody’s life isn’t the only thing on the line — her heart is, too.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What a phenomenal story! First I must say I absolutely enjoy reading paranormal shifter romance especially ones that involves, Tigers, Dragons, Wolves, Vampires and my most favorite Bear Shifters, so this book by Anna Lowe I really love reading. I know I'm telling my age but this series remind me of Magnum P.I. with Tom Selleck, oh my, if this became a TV series I would plant myself in front of the television and not move until it was over and I would record it so I could watch it again. I'm always excited to read this series. This is the fourth book written in this series. It features Cruz Khala andJody Monroe with the rest of the gang from the three previous books of the ALOHA SHIFTERS. Cruz is a Tiger shifter who is graceful, ruthless, gorgeous, sexy with yellow-green eyes. He is also gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective but there is a problem he doesn’t put much trust in humans. Jody is a pro surfer, a very reluctant model who is strikingly beautiful, footloose, carefree and a woman on a mission. But unknown to her there are two assassin and one is Cruz. The story has magic, lots of adventure and humor. I love and enjoy the books that are written by Anna Lowe. She is very talented and gifted author, she creates enjoyable,lovable,sexy characters and magical, exciting worlds. Anne stories are always humorous and magical which will entice and weave a AWESOME tale that pulls you into the adventures with her relatable characters. I know we all just fall in love with a hero that's irresistible with his tormented soulful eyes that just melts our heart. Oh yeah the heroine we all appreciated a strong woman who is capable of fighting and loving along side her man but when there's danger around, she knows she can let her man protect her and still be admired and loved the love her life, because he knows she won't just rush into the fray and endanger them both by just hoping for the best. That's just the some of what I enjoy and love while reading Anna books. I really enjoy her love scenes she has a talent for writing blazing hot sensual sex scenes, she ramps up the tension between Jody and a Cruz before during and after they make love. I enjoy when you can laugh and smile while reading the sexual scenes even through its can be very explicit. Because this allows me a clear sense of the love between the hero and heroine and to enjoy it without feeling I'm reading porn. Anna Lowe stories JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling series set on the tropical shores of Maui. I have love reading each story they are exciting page-turner that's packed with action, emotion, and romance! Paranormal Shifters twist of course its has steamy hot, alpha shifters! The story has a depth of emotion which tugs at my heart. This book captured my attention quickly from beginning to end. Each story has its own jewel that comes with its own danger. The couples are made up a Shifter from the ALOHA SHIFTERS and their mate has the power to control the jewel and each jewel is calling to the other jewels. Cruz and Jody the story Lure of the Tiger. This leads the series into the story we are all excited to read Silas story. The entire series is one that just gets more exciting as we read each story they have kept me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy reading Paranormal Shifter Romance then you will love this series.

Grumpy Cruz finds his mermaid! Cruz was a hard nut to crack. He's always been a gruff man that doesn't trust well. In prior books, he is always the sullen one that doesn't like or want to be around people. This book gave a new view of him. I liked this Cruz the best of all versions we have seen.
Cruz is holding on to his past. Jody is pure sunshine. No matter how bad the stakes or the obstacles, she shines and reaches out to the future by living now. It might be that opposites attract, Cruz's dark and stormy persona and Jody's bright and happy attitude. This book definitely brought out the best. The only sad part is that with one more shifter finding his love, the closer the series is to the end.

We also get a bigger teaser about Silas.. happy jazzy hands! There is enough meat on the teases to make you want to beg for Silas' story. Which I have been waiting for since the very first book.

While this is part of the Aloha Shifters series, it can be read as stand alone without missing anyt

I don’t know anyone that has read at least one book in these series that has not been hooked. You can not help but fall in love with Silas, Kai, Boone, Hunter, and Cruz. Not to mention the wonderful women they bring into the story. This story is about Cruz. I don’t know about you but I have so been looking forward to reading about Cruz and the woman the author would chose for this grumpy angry tiger.

I did do the whipsersync with this book. Truly love the narrator. The narrator did a wonderful job and done a great job pulling you into the story. I did find though that the audios with this series does not always match up with the book. From time to time there where sentences that were reworded, words left out, or even a sentence is complete added. Does not take a way from the story though.

Cruz Khala was this sexy tiger shifter but he was grumpy, angry, and seemed to hate every thing, especially human’s. As we get to know Cruz we do get to understand him and can not blame him. The anger he carries around is slowly killing his spirit. He believes human’s were responsible for his parents death. To carry this around for years and long for the day you can venge your families death has to be a heavy weight to bare.

Jody Monroe was this amazing woman. She was a pro surfer and I just loved her free spirit. I also loved the love she had for her family. She would do anything for them even if it meant doing a modeling gig to make some money to help them out. I am sure she never dreamed she would be on someone’s hit list. She was the type of person you feel in love with, not want to kill.

The one thing I love about this story is that we get to see the battle between animal and man. Though Cruz and his tiger are one, they are two different spirits that share on body. We get to see Cruz inwardly argue with his tiger. The animal was the smart one in this story. He knew the moment he saw Jody she was not a killer. Cruz on the other hand was facing this inward battle.

I know this had to be a hard decision for Jody to make on trusting Cruz. I love how she went with her heart and her gut. I also loved how she really got under Cruz skin. He was finding it so hard to resist her.

There is danger all around. The jewel that Jody was suppose to do a photo shoot with could be a one of the Spirit Stone. This meant the danger Jody was in could be more serious then they had thought.

One of my many favorite scenes in the story was one of the photo shoots. Lets just say things get pretty hot and steamy. I sorry want to know more about that scene you will have to read the book. Trust me when I say this book has some many wonderful parts.

By the end of the book, though I love how it ended I was screaming at Anne Lowe. Please tell me that is not who she is going to put with Silas. No no, no!!!!

This truly was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

Okay, if you've read any of my reviews, you know I love the Interstellar Brides series. I've read them all at this point and can't wait for more.

This one was a little different from the previous books in this series. It was a nice change up. It revisits the Vikens introduced in Book 3. Sophia's been matched to not one or two mates, but three and on top of that, someone doesn't want her to meet them.

There was, in my opinion, more mystery and tension in this book than in some of the others. It had me biting my nails to the end. My mantra was- this is an HEA, this is an HEA.
That being said, I don't think the others are missing anything without the added mystery and tension. It was just a nice change.

Wolves of Willow Bend Book 6.5: Wolf With Benefits

After graduating college and spending a summer breaking the law, Shiloh Sullivan needs to make amends and accomplish something for Willow Bend. When she returns home, her best friend—the wolfish and playful Matt Montgomery—distracts her. In an effort to make his mother feel better, Matt cons Shiloh into telling his mother that she came home for him. The little fib, he promises, is all his mother needs to feel better about his sister’s recent mating and exodus across the ocean.

Pretending a relationship with a wolf is impossible and, while Shiloh might be human, she knows the rules.

The friendly-with-benefits arrangement suits Matt fine. It makes his mother happy, helps the pack forgive his best friend, and gives him a reason to pry into the secrets Shiloh’s been keeping. Still, the closer they get and the more rules they break, the more Matt’s wolf wants to change their con game into a mating game. Two problems stand in his way—Shiloh’s very human parents never wanted their children to take the bite, and a wolf from across the line has his eye on her, too.

Can Matt keep his best friend and mate her too?

There are quite a few novellas in this series and this is one of my favorites.

Shiloh was one of the humans that helped Luciana move the wolves to form the sixth pack. She was the first one to return when Mason ordered them home. Not because of the order but because she didn't like what she saw with Patrick challenging Serafina the Delta Crescent Alpha.

Now many are not happy with her being home, wolf and human. The most prominent of those humans, her family.

An incident at the grocery store, has Matt has moving her into his home and she has some decisions to make. He is sort of claiming her as his mate, not realizing it may very well be true.

Lots of family drama in this one, Shiloh's family has some issues with her relationship with Matt.

I had a hard time reading this story, at first. Shiloh, in my opinion, made some extremely foolish, naive decisions. She saw the world as a human and didn’t have a grasp the wolves way of life that would have allowed her to make more informed choices. That said, seeing her try to reintegrate into Willow Bend was hard. Matt’s involvement seemed to completely change her life around, and gave her something else to focus on. Though she still felt she was right, I think she might have finally understood the impact of her actions.
All in all, I loved this story and am glad to have seen Shilohs point of view.

This is a great addition to the Willow Bend Series, answering questions I didn't even know I had. Shiloh left the WB pack for college, then armed with a degree in social work, she helped form an illegal sixth pack. Events within that pack led to her coming home to her human family and her best friend in the WB pack, Matt. Mason, WB pack Alpha, has questioned her thoroughly and forgiven her, with conditions. Others in the pack have been less tolerant and her parents are among those. So when Matt breaks her out of her parent's house and proposes a faux romantic relationship for her to regain the pack's acceptance, she is shocked. But after her vehicle is vandalized in the grocery store parking lot, Matt takes things into his own hands, moving her into his garage apartment. And from there, they begin to work through the obstacles to Shiloh regaining full acceptance within the pack that is her extended family. And for each to rethink their role in the other's life.

I purchased books 1-3 together as an Amazon deal. I read them over the weekend. I liked the story development and the characters so much that over the last two weeks, I have read books 4 through 10. The characters were well developed, and although each book was a standalone, there was thread of continuity and overlapping characters throughout. The story came to life and the last book, although not a cliffie, makes you really want to read the next one (which is not out until March, 2017). Well worth your time and money to read the series.

She was not asked. She was claimed.

Sloan has lived among shifters long enough to know what happens when an alpha takes a mate, but she never imagined that her turn would come to be marked and mastered. Until today…

Today Gareth of Ravenscar decided she was his, and she wasn’t given a choice in the matter.

Now, with her cheeks blushing, her bottom burning, and the evidence of his rough conquest still dripping down her bare thighs, she is beginning to understand what it truly means to be claimed.

I love this second book in the new series. It is amazing. I will admit that I thought that the mate for Gareth was Arielle. I laughed when I saw how wrong I was! It was Sloan who is his fated mate. Gareth, of course, is an overbearing male who will get his way no matter what. I do love these great male characters. Of course, their whole book is basically Sloan accepting that she is Gareth's fated mate with a lot of action thrown in. Just the way I like it! I hope the next book is about Ruari and Arielle. There is a HEA.

I have read all of the books following this series of Delta James's books! I am wanting more to follow and cannot wait to see what else is in store. I love how Gareth ends up besting Sloan in a way that he was still upset at her for but still showed that he cared in a way as well as understand that even though she disobeyed him. She done so to help keep her mate and pack safe accepting him as her fated mate and that she loves him and promised to return back to him.

I’m enjoying the series. And will probably purchase the paperbacks. They are well thought out and written. I found one small error where Rowan was named instead of Sloan, which brought me up short for a moment but didn’t detract from the story. The women protect their mates and their people just as the alpha’s do.

Interstellar Brides 5: Mated to the Beast

After two of her brothers are killed in battle with the relentless alien menace that threatens the entire Interstellar Coalition, Sarah Mills volunteers to join the fight in an effort to bring home her last surviving brother. When she is mistakenly processed as a bride rather than a soldier, however, she rejects the match. But her mate has other ideas…

Dax is an Atlan warlord, and like all the men of his race, a primal beast lurks within him, ready to emerge in the fury of battle or the heat of the mating fever. When he learns that his bride has chosen to fight on the front lines rather than share his bed, he sets out to track her down and take what the beast demands.

Sarah is none too pleased when a massive brute claiming to be her mate arrives suddenly in the midst of a battle, and her displeasure turns to fury when Dax’s presence disrupts her mission and leads to the capture of her brother. But after her commanding officer refuses to authorize a rescue mission, Sarah’s best hope of saving the only family she has left is to accept Dax’s offer to help, even if that means giving herself to him in return.

Though he is thrilled to have located his wayward bride, Dax quickly discovers that Sarah is nothing like the meek, submissive women of his world. If he wants her, he will have to tame her, with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom if necessary. But Dax doesn’t just want Sarah, he needs her. Can she satisfy the fearsome beast within him before he loses control completely?

A most unexpected but delightful mistake.
Raised by a father and 4 brothers Sarah is not wilting simpering female. She has strength, smart, sass and skills. Joining the collation to fight by her brother Seth's side she doesn't have time for a man.
Dax is so close to going berserker his commander demands he be tested for a bride. This Atlan has his work cut out for him. His bride is not some sweet bidable Atlan female raised to sooth the Beast but a warrior.
Look forward to some fighting action, mating cuffs, huge alien, spanking, plugs and so many orgasms im surprised she could still talk!

Damn I love this series. Sarah & Dax are my favorite couple in this series so far. Sarah was trying to get signed up for the front lines of the war and work side by side with her only remaining brother. They accidentally processed her as a bride instead of the war, which she refuses. Dax is starting his mating heat and they get him processed right away for a bride, but his bride was never taken out of the system and is not a part of the program.....so, he goes to get her. Her and her brothers team are in the middle of an op when he lands right in the middle. This causes her brother to be taken and her and her mate to go get him back.

This is one of my favorite sci-fi series, it always has some action, it's funny and so damn hot.....the trifecta in my opinion. It's a real addiction.

Mated to the Beast- Sarah is a warrior in her own right and she's volunteering for the coalition because her brother's out there alone. Only the new warden at the Interstellar Bride program is mixed up and puts her through the bride testing instead of the warrior testing. And she's matched to an Atlan who's about to go into beserker mode if he doesn't get matched to his mate. Dax is at his limit, he needs a mate and now, or he will face being executed before he's too dangerous to be around. The problem is, his mate is off fighting the Hive instead of joining him.
This was my gateway into the Interstellar Bride series. I read it over a year ago and then found my way back recently, deciding to read them in order this time. I love the Atlan warriors and their devotion to their females.

Blue Moon Saloon Book 2: Temptation

Behind the doors of the Blue Moon Saloon, alpha shifters confront their darkest fears and their deepest desires. This book is a complete standalone story that ends with a strong hook to the main character in the next book of the series.

She-wolf Janna Macks knows trouble when she sees it, especially when it comes in the form of an irresistibly broody cowboy like Cole Harper. Her fledgling pack is already in the cross hairs of a ruthless group of rogues, and falling head over heels in lust with a human will only endanger her loved ones more. The problem is, her wolf knows her destined mate when she sees him — and Cole is it.

Rodeo pro Cole Harper has never felt this off-kilter before. One minute, he’s lusting after Janna, the spunky waitress he can’t get off his mind, and the next, he’s growling at a dark inner voice demanding all kinds of crazy things — like howling at the moon and claiming Janna as his own. There’s only one thing stronger than the overwhelming need for Janna, and that’s the fear that without her, he’ll succumb to the strange inner beast wrestling for control of his haunted soul

I've read pretty much all of Miss Lowe's "Twin Moon Ranch" books, and I always love them. When I saw that she had a spin-off series, I eagerly snapped up a copy of the first book, and it was just as good. "Temptation" is the second book in the series, and as always, LOVED it. (And I can't wait for the next one now, too.)

It's hard to review this book without accidental spoilers... the bad guys from the first book are back - the tension waiting for the to make a move or not is really good. Janna is a sweet, smart, optimistic woman you can't help but like, and Cole is such a sweetheart. I loved his POV. Lots to love about this couple.

I always highly recommend Miss Lowe's shifter books, especially the ones that are in any way linked to Twin Moons. She always has interesting, sympathetic heroes/heroines, and really, really BAD villains. Always good suspense, pacing, and plots

Reviewed in the United States on October 10, 2016 Verified Purchase
I loved this second installment of the Blue Moon Saloon series.

Cole is a human cowboy that was scratched by a wolf during a bar fight. He does not understand why there seems to be a voice inside his head that is urging him to claim Janna as his "mate". Janna is a waitress at the local bar and is a wolf shifter. She has always liked Cole, but lately her wolf keeps calling him her mate. That seems strange since she didn't feel the whole "fated mate" vibe when she first started seeing him. What changed?

This is a little different spin from a lot of wolf-human stories where the woman is usually the human half of the story. We learn a little about Cole's past and what brought him to live in seclusion and work a menial job at a stable. The purist wolves will also make another appearance and bring the whole Cole/Janna thing to a climax. Can't wait for Soren's story. Hope I already own it

Cole never knew what hit him. And Janna was blindsided because she could not notice Cole was her destined mate. She figured it was just a simple crush or motorbike it lust. One scratch and the changes started to happen. For Cole he knew he had secrets and a past but he wasn't ready for the truth. He was hearing voices and assumed he was going crazy but the need to protect Janna his mate was like a craving. Janna knew humans were really "off limits" She could not help how she felt about Cole. But one thing for sure she's a smart cookie and realized that after that fight Cole started acting different. She had to do everything in her power to help her mate make it through the change. Not too many humans survived being turn you had to be strong and hot dog Cole fit the bill. I doo loved this story that I literally could not stop reading until the end. And what an ending...let's just say I cannot wait for Soren's story come out. We get a glimpse of it at the end of Janna and Cole's escaped. Show Stopper. I loved their story and believe you will just as enthralled as I was. I was given an ARC copy for my honest opinion. But I love Anna so much, that I even purchased the book. So what are you waiting for?

Received the book for an honest review. I was really was excited to read Jessica and Simon's story after getting a taste in the prequel Perfection. Jessica and her sister are in hiding from shifter purists that destroyed their home and killed everyone they loved. With the help of the people of Twin Moon Ranch alpha's sister, Tina, they land themselves jobs at the local bar this is run by two bear shifter brothers. No one was more surprised then Jess when she found out that one of the brothers was her ex-lover and destined mate, Simon, who broke her heart and turns his back on their love. Boy was Jess wrong and when she finds out why he did what he did she falls more in love with him. Can Jess and Simon find the happiness they deserve when there is a group out there who will never allow mixed shifter relationships?? There is action, sorrow, love and a happy ending. Great beginning to a new series.

I love Dragon Shifter books, they are amongst my favourite genres to read and there are never enough great books to read in this genre. This series was definitely a perfect find for me. The writing was very good and the story pulled you in from book one and continued in book two. I am so looking forward to the third book in this series.

The first Book followed the leader of the Dragon Guard Rayne and his Mate Kyndall's story and I thought that was a great book... but book two, "Her Dragon to Slay" was just that much better! "Her Dragon's Fire" was Aiden and Grace's Story and you could sense the Love between them and the connection they had.

Aiden was sexy hot and an oh so romantic alpha male, Grace was a very independent strong woman as well, she had a mind of her own and challenged Aiden every chance she could. There was so much more to these characters and the obstacles they faced and had to overcome made you feel just that much more for them, especially Aiden. There were definitely some very steamy scenes, which I love, very detailed and scorching hot. One can only wish they had a Man so devoted to a Woman"s every need like the men (Dragons) in these books!

The writing was fantastic and brought the characters to life and I had a hard time putting this book down (I got nothing done over the weekend I read both books in 2 days). The book was edited really well and the story flowed from one page to the next effortlessly. I can only hope that the rest books in this series get better. I loved that there is a little about all of the characters in the books and you get a glimpse at previous characters and what they are doing. I can't wait for Lance and Samantha's story, April can't come soon enough.

I would definitely recommend this series to those who like the Paranormal genre. It was an outstanding read and you won't be disappointed.

This book was much better than Book One because the plot was a lot more interesting, and I enjoyed the action. However, the writing is still a bit repetitive, too detailed in parts, and there are too many things that were very similar to the first book.

I love Aiden as much in this book as I did in the story about Rayne and Kyndel. He has strength, passion, and is not afraid to show or feel emotions.

Grace, on the other hand, started out being a heroine I liked, but she soon became demanding, insensible, and even put their lives at risk with her foolishness...all because she had to see everything "with her own eyes!" Really?!

I liked the other characters, the brethren--Lance, Royce, Aaron, and Devon. I definitely want to read their stories. I'm also curious about what eventually happens to Aaron's and Aiden's traitorous brother, Andrew

Remember Grace from book one? You know, Kyndel's best friend who had borrowed her car and left Kyndel to walk home the night she met Rayne? Yep, that's her. Big city girl from affluent parents, dad an ambassador and mom a humanitarian, is now an attorney for the State Prosecutor. Unfortunately, she had her insecurities and one of those had been about the opposite sex and love. Her ex in college had cheated on her and Grace overheard him tell the other girl he was only with Grace to meet her father and advance his political career and then made disparaging remarks about her weight. Grace decided then and there, in her senior year, love was for suckers. She wouldn't go that route again. Aiden was a dragon of the Elite Dragon Guard. His twin brother Aaron was two minutes older than him and their baby brother Andrew was ten years younger. Not only was Andrew the baby of the family, but he had two different colored eyes and was considered to be the mark of a Special One. Aiden was the first person Andrew had opened his eyes to and made a connection with, so there was a special bond between them. Unfortunately that bond had been broken the night Aiden thought Andrew had been killed. Now, six months later, he's still looking for Andrew, who turned out to be alive and using black magic. He had turned traitor and Aiden was hunting him before more people were hurt. Julia Mills has an innate ability to tap into the realm of dragons and bring us a world consisting of an elite group of dragon guards who are duty bound to protect humans and the way fate plays a hand in bring them their mates. This is Aiden and Grace's story and what a story it is. With an underlying plot flowing through the book, strong characters who bring loyalty and chaos to each other's lives and the devotion and love of a dragon, you won't be disappointed
