Rebel Lion (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 3)

Lion shifter Dell O’Roarke has never been serious about life, but life is about to get serious with him. The beautiful stranger who’s just arrived in Maui isn’t just looking for anyone — she’s looking for him. And that’s not just any surprise she’s brought along — it’s a baby who looks a hell of a lot like Dell. Soon, he discovers there’s more at stake than his lifestyle as a swinging bachelor. Vengeful shifters are hot on the stranger’s heels, making Dell wonder… Are they after the woman, the baby, or him?

Ad executive Anjali Jain hasn’t taken a vacation in years — and she sure isn’t on vacation now. She’s simply keeping a promise, and then she’ll get back to climbing the corporate ladder. But there’s nothing simple about taking care of a baby — or handing that baby off to a handsome, mysterious stranger who feels like a long-lost friend. Easygoing Dell isn’t her type, but the more he reluctantly reveals of his hidden, soulful side, the deeper she falls in love — and the more mysteries she discovers. How can one man possibly awaken so many lusts and desires at the same time? What evil forces lurk behind the brutal murder of her best friend? And why does she have the feeling there’s something not quite human about the murderers — or about Dell?

Rebel Lion is much like Dell himself. A bit softer, a touch more lighthearted, not slower but more leisurely, more laid-back… yet, along the edges of this new domestic scene slithers a whisper of danger to come. Yeah. Very much like our lion shifter, Dell O’Roarke. For me, Rebel Lion was very much a story divided into two sections. At first we discover that Dell has a niece, a tiny baby who never knew her father and has tragically lost her mother. To say that Dell’s world was turned upside down in that moment would be an understatement. And not only about Quinn, for along with the baby Dell’s mate has also stepped into his life. Anjali is everything Dell never dreamed possible for himself. Sure, she’s career driven, lives back in Chicago and probably wouldn’t look twice at him on a normal day… but, still. There is an immediate spark, a knowing in her eyes even if she doesn’t really understand the part destiny plays in anyone’s life.

To be frank, I was disappointed in my beloved shifters. Yes, you read that right. From the moment Quinn appeared they didn’t have any confidence in Dell to be able to raise her, perhaps on his own. When they started tossing around other options for Quinn, my blood began to boil. Yes, it did. It was sad to me to see these men and women who knew Dell, fought beside him, shared his secrets, and admittedly knew him as a carefree, live for the moment kind of man. That they would put forth such a suggestion, that their faith and belief in their friend, brother was so low… I hurt for Dell, very much. And I wanted to start slapping people upside the head. Yes, even dragon shifters at that moment. I wanted to ask Cynthia how she’d feel if anyone dared suggest that future for Joey. Yeah, flash fire for certain would be the answer. Throughout this personal drama Dell and Anjali are slowly falling in love. Oh, Dell’s lion knew they’d found their mate but the man was too busy seeing how it couldn’t work at first. Everything changes when this newly formed family return to Chicago for the official signing of papers. Absolutely everything.

And here is the second section of Rebel Lion. The fight til the death, defend the mate and cub moment. The edge of danger has been slowly building and it comes to a head when we’re confronted with an old enemy, and learn her plans. The enemy that went after Quinn’s mother has joined forces with a more powerful ally and the fight is on to protect, to defend what is most important in Dell’s life.

I was captured all over again with Dell and Anjali’s story. There is a different feel to their story, one that is very much in touch with Dell’s personality. Watching Dell learn the joys, fears and delight of fatherhood was such an enjoyable experience. Also, watching the confirmed bachelor falling was a special delight. I wasn’t the least surprised that Dell’s story involved a little one, you only have to see how he is with Joey to know what a great father he’d make. We’ve learned a but more about Cynthia this time… and waiting for that shoe to fall is going to be agonizing. I absolutely loved Rebel Lion for its differences and for the continuity as well. Life is full of unseen corners to be turned, and Dell did that so well. If you love Shifter Romance or have followed this series then you need to pick up Rebel Lion. Fascinating characters, detailed story lines, threads woven through each story that connect them all … and simply a damn good story. Indulge yourself and enjoy another trip to Magnum’s estate (grin), you’ll enjoy the trip I guarantee.

I own a Kindle edition of this book.

What do you do when confronted by a pink bundle with eyes just like yours? Why you go all lion - hawt & protective! Dell's lion was up for the challenge of Anjali and her pink bundle even before Dell knew it. Anjali didn't know what work or satisfaction was until she had that little pink bundle. Everything isn't all stuffed lions and sleepy babes for the shifters on Maui. There is a major threat that needs to be solved and a pearl that won't be denied. I really enjoyed the different facets of Dell and even Anjali. Showing the playful side, to the responsible, scared and serious, to the protective sides. The nicknames that the played with all throughout the story were hysterical. Everyone working together like a big family to protect Quinn, the baby, was fabulous. Another great shifter read.

Anjali and Dell are my new favorite power couple. This story was explosive and saucy from the beginning. I've always loved Dell's inner beast and beauty. His emotions and call of duty demeanor take no prisoner attitude just like the majestic king of the jungle he is..but if it wasn't for love and Destiny playing a part he would have never conquered his inner alpha strength. Of course it helps to have a strong woman in your corner. It's what they say the male might be the king of the jungle but the woman rule the world. And damnit if Anjali didn't bring her inner lioness out when it was most needed. Protect your family and Destiny will help guide you along.

Moira just knew she was going to get her way this time but she had another thing coming. It's seems Moira is the common thread that brought this group of shifters and their mates together. Greed, revenge and power corrupts her. She will go to no end to make everyone pay and suffer. But they will not be destroyed or beaten. I feel it's going down soon. I have a vision all the shifters from Koakea Plantation and Koa Point will band together and open up a can of whoop a$%. I cannot wait for the next story.

I almost forgot, Anjali came through to help protect her newly found family. Quinn, Joey and all the rest of the group becomes hers and nobody muff what's hers. Get the book!

I swear these books just keep getting better and better with every new story. I LOVE Dell and Anjali!!! As usual, they are PERFECT for each other. And little Quinn and Joey. Love them. That's my favorite thing about Anna Lowe's series, you get to catch up in each book with the folks that came before!! I can't WAIT for Chase!!! My heart aches for him. How hard it must be for him. Lowe writes these people in a way that the most outlandish scenarios seem possible, and realistic. Love these series so much. Hate when each one comes to an end. I just hope she comes up with at least one more after Book 5. It has to be about Cynthia. Oh well, waiting impatiently. Did I say that? Patiently. Lol

You’re Lion to Me (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 20)

From planet Aurora, lioness shifter, Dalissa Furr, wants to explore new places before she goes insane from boredom. So a trip to Earth is a must. Finding her mate in the process would be great too, if Gerri Wilder can make it happen. But according to her parents, her smaller than normal size and delicate features make her undesirable to a shifter.

Azai Whittip, alpha of the White Tip wolf pack, will only accept his true mate for a life-long partner, to the dismay of the females in the pack. When Gerri asks him to take her friend sightseeing, he doesn’t expect this friend to be gorgeous and smell so damn good. Oh, and bonus, she’s his mate.

As far as Azai is concerned, life’s perfect now that he found Dalissa. But someone in his pack or the neighboring lion pride think wolves and lions don’t mix. When both alphas and the male wolves come up missing, it’s up to Dalissa to figure out what’s going on and how to stop the one person set on destroying both packs and dominating the human world. Talk about an adventure!

“Dalissa? Yes. A lioness, if I recall correctly. Yes, that would be perfect. I have a friend who I’m sure would be happy to lend a paw, and he would be happy to show her Earth and our local shifters. This will work perfectly.”

“I know that smile, Gerri,” she exclaimed excitedly. “You’re already plotting to set her up, aren’t you?” “Of course. It’s what I do best. When should I expect the little lioness to join me? I will take her to your apartment and get that settled before her escort arrives.”

Gerri shook her head and tried not to laugh. She really didn’t want to encourage Bertha’s outlandish ways. “Should I warn the theater people about you?”

“Nah, they are dramatic enough. I will fit right in. I have to go. Gerri? Thank you for your help.” Bertha hung up quickly and Gerri set the phone down.

Remy wouldn’t resist once he met his mate, and if anyone else happened to find theirs at the same time… Well, nothing wrong with that at all.

He doesn’t want a sexy, sensual, smart mate staying in his guest room. Much less saving his ass.

Genevieve Monroe’s stage play stars lion shifters. What better way to learn about these big felines than from real shifters? With help from Gerri Wilder, she and her crew are staying a couple weeks with the pride. And Gen herself is about to get up close and real personal with the big, sexy alpha of the pride. An alpha so hot, she wants to strip naked and purr like a cat in heat.

As a producer, Gen’s used to drama, but the performance playing out in the pride is beyond her expertise, especially when she’s personally threatened. Remy tries to protect his mate, but she’s determined to do what she wants, how she wants. But when she goes missing, it’s up to Remy to find her before the curtain closes.

All Kitten Aside (Paranormal Dating Agency #11)

She remembered clearly his asking her to marry him. She’d thought that was what she’d wanted, to be a wife and to be his partner, but then she’d gone out with him and seen how he’d expected her to not voice her opinion. The fucker had told her to shut up, that her thoughts weren’t required during the conversation. When someone brought up weight, he had the gall to bring back his thoughts on her body and how much better she’d look in a smaller dress size.

She’d told him if size didn’t matter when it came to his dick, then it shouldn’t matter when it came to her jeans.

Miranda Colilla needs a mate. Fast. This curvy lioness wants a man she can bend to her will, who will stay out of her business, and let her lead like the alpha she is. She needs that mate urgently before the lions in her pride think she’s going to hand the reins over to one of them and let them tell her what to do. Not in this lifetime. When a wolf saves her hide, there’s more than just gratitude sparking between them.

Kasen Steel’s tired of women throwing themselves at him. As alpha of his pack, he can have any woman he wants. Problem is, he doesn’t want any of them. He wants a chase. He wants someone who isn’t taken in with his position. A chance meeting with a hot as hell lioness makes him want a close encounter of the naked kind with her. Wait, he’s already naked.

Kasen knows Andi’s perfect for him. She’s already making him crazy by denying their attraction and the fact she’s his mate. The hunt is on. Unfortunately for him, proving to Andi they’re right for each other is just one of the problems facing this alpha. Keeping her alive, when someone wants her dead, is another. But Kasen isn’t going to sit by and let anyone harm her. Now that he’s found his smart-assy mate, he isn’t letting go. Whether she likes it or not.

This is another one where I had to do my darndest to not snicker while my husband was watching TV. This couple couldn’t have been farther from what they thought they wanted and needed in a mate. Too Cute!

Rebel Lion (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 3)

Maui just got hotter with this exciting new series of steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance!

“You must be Wendell,” the woman said.

He blinked. It sounded like she didn’t remember him either. “Dell. Dell O’Roarke.”

The woman nodded and introduced herself. “Anjali Jain.” Then she nodded down to the baby nestled in her arms. “This is Quinn.”

She let a second tick by, and Dell’s mind went into a tailspin, trying to puzzle out the hint. Quinn?

Finally, the woman dropped the bombshell. “She’s named after her dad.”

All the air whooshed out of Dell’s lungs. That wasn’t his baby. It was his brother’s.

He expected sheer relief, but all he felt was disappointed emptiness. A stab of jealousy that it was his perfect brother who’d produced that perfect baby and not him.

“Quentin?” he whispered.

The woman nodded sadly and cuddled the baby close.

A shocked little gasp made it past Tim’s lips, and Connor looked surprised, too. They quit glaring at Dell, and he could sense the same thought rushing through everybody’s mind.

Quentin was the good guy. The hero. A man who did his family proud. In other words, a model lion. Quentin wasn’t the type to knock up a girl and leave her on her own. All the messing up, he left to Dell.

Not this time, Dell’s inner lion murmured, lashing its tail. Not this time.

Fire Maidens: London (Billionaires and Bodyguards #2)

A lionhearted hero + scheming shifter factions = unforgettable PNR

Lancelot, a corner of her mind decided. A knight in shining armor.

Then she remembered the stalker, and her smile faded. Voldemort was at the far set of doors, she was at the near set, and Lancelot was at the exit in the middle of the car.

Please, she wanted to whisper to Lancelot. Help me. Please.

Behind him, Petro’s look-alike leaned into view, and Gemma froze. Her alarm must have shown, because Lancelot’s smile vanished, and his nostrils flared as he spun to face the stalker. Everything about his stance bristled with power.

The stalker’s expression changed too, and he and Lancelot stood facing off like a couple of gorillas. They didn’t actually rage and beat their chests, but they did give off serious vibes. Vibes packed with testosterone, anger, and…something she couldn’t quite define. A raw, elemental force that made the air around their shoulders shimmer.

They were so still, it was frightening. The orange-red hue of the stalker’s eyes intensified, and he balled his hands into fists.

“Rebel with a cause” Gemma Archer flees Boston one step ahead of a creepy stalker. Now she’s in London, trying to build a new normal — and absolutely, positively not getting involved with any men. That is, until an irresistible stranger prowls into her life. Liam is a sweet, sexy modern-day knight who sparks her sizzling desires. The problem? He’s as loony as some of her relatives. Dragons? Lion shifters? Werewolves? The poor man really seems to believe the tales he spins.

Liam Bennett is fresh out of the military and doing his best to adjust to civilian life. But fitting in was never his forte as a shifter of mixed blood. He’s part lion — a member of London’s most noble family — and part rogue, with “undesirable” dragon blood. When the Guardians of London hire him to help maintain law and order, Liam jumps at the chance to prove himself. Soon, he discovers nothing is as it seems — not among his allies, enemies, or even his own family. The only thing he can be sure of is the danger Gemma is in.

A deadly foe has stalked Gemma for thousands of miles, and Liam has no choice but to spirit away his destined mate to his ancestral dragon home — the remote castle in Wales he’s been avoiding for years. But hiding out is not enough. Can Liam and Gemma survive cunning enemies and the deceptions of the past?

This was the kind of sex she’d only dreamt of—a man who wanted her body so completely he lost control for her. That was all good, but it was the way he kissed her, so tender and loving, the way he stroked her body like she was a goddess, that shoved a lump into her throat.

Alyx Treyvaal isn’t known for being patient. A lion doesn’t ask for help. A lion doesn’t apologize. And he most certainly does not purr. But once he meets Bella, he finds himself doing all of the above…except for purring. He will not purr.

With wolves stirring all kinds of trouble for them and a cousin who would like to shred Bella to ribbons, things are not simple for the couple. Not at all. One thing’s for sure, when his mate is taken and threatened, the entire planet will hear the lion king’s roar.

Adorable!

So fantastic and enjoyable. I loved this pair. The interactions between them were enough to make me laugh 😆 out loud.
