Wolves of Willow Bend Book 14: Wolf Unleashed

With this book, we start to get more of glimpse at the Second-in-Commands for the packs. There is much for them to do, and they need all the help they can get!

Change swept through the packs of North America, leaving in its wake seven packs where once only five stood. Old enemies still lurk, past hatreds fester, and the shadow of invaders linger. The challenge of diplomacy, evaluating the old laws, and instituting the new ones falls squarely on the shoulders of the pack Seconds. It’s a whole new world, and what took so long to construct…remains vulnerable.

Luc Danes is Second, and best friend, to Brett Dalton the Alpha of Hudson River. He has his hands full training healer and alpha’s mate Colby in how to defend herself as well as hone her wolf senses. It’s not a bad life for a bachelor wolf, not really—except lately, all the eligible females have turned him down. No dates. No playing. Nothing. He’s untouchable. Turns out no one wants to lay a finger on what rumors have labeled the Alpha’s property as the third to the alpha’s pairing leaving Luc one shocked and frustrated wolf.

Just the position he wants to be in when paired with the stunning Charlie who doesn’t know him at all and is unlike any other wolf he’s known. So why can’t he even earn a second look?

Charlotte “Charlie” Miller works in the city, an urban wolf, she rarely sheds her skin for fur. As an executive handling day-to-day meetings for her alpha in New York and around the world, she knows how to handle even the most difficult of individuals. But changes in pack structures across the country require a different kind of handling, and Brett calls in his chief negotiator to back up his Second, and to give him a crash course in diplomacy.

Unfortunately, Charlie has dealt with wolves and humans just like Luc before and it doesn’t matter how sexy he is, she refuses to be impressed.

I am a reviewer, so get to read many book's in the genré paranormal, some are good, other's great, but a few fall into that special category of absolutely brilliant.
Heather Long is an Author who naturally falls into that category, whether writing paranormal or about heroes or historical romance, no matter her choice of genré they all have superb descriptive narration developed by an extremely vivid imagination.
"Wolf Unleashed" brought another distinction into the numerous level's and hierarchy within the wolf pack, that is rarely heard of but a very challenging position to be in if born with this complex diversity within their wolf.
This book helps you to see and understand how vicious both people and wolves can be to those who are a little different, plus in this storyline how gossiping can have such a negative effect upon both those being talked about and how far removed that information can be.
A beautiful example of how one is able to see past the barriers that can be detected, for their protection, while showing in reality what acceptance from other's can do to those previously crucified.
Heather Long has that uncanny ability to write intricate details of her character's personalities, while including all the information surrounding those characters within the pack that are part of this inticing novel, giving it many scenario's that give the reader's different ways to look at where this fascinating story maybe going.
I was enthralled by the quality of the emotional depth found within the characters especially our two central characters "Charlie and Luc" as they stumble to work out exactly what they mean to each other, while being battered by the interference of other's.
A terrific storyline, full of fascinating challenges and opportunities for many of those involved.
The author Heather Long will keep you totally captivated with the world she has created, as we wonder at the possible outcome.
I highly recommend anyone who enjoys paranormal activity to grab a copy of this intriguing book, and be aware it's a book very difficult to put down.

Welcome back to the Wolves of Willow Bend. Change is never easy but the only constant is change. Luc is assigned to help facilitate new treaties and his partner in this endeavor is Charlotte “Charlie” Miller. Charlie is a “special wolf” who hides in the urban jungle of New York rather than deal with a pack of wolves and her mother. She is smart and driven and will drive Luc to distraction. I really enjoyed getting to know Charlie and Luc impressed me with his patience and understanding (not something alpha wolves are known for). This story will suck you in and won’t let go till way after the last page.

I've been waiting a long time for Luc's story and this didn't disappoint. I was intrigued by Charlie and her wolf. I was pleased that she was strong, but still filled Luc's need to take care of his mate. I'm looking forward to getting to know more about the other Seconds in this new arc.

Reviewed in the United States on December 23, 2019
I was gifted an advanced Reader Copy from the Author and my review is completely voluntary.

Now that the legal stuff is out of the way let's talk about Wolf Unleashed and all that is Lucus Danes.

Luc was once a lone wolf now he is second to the pack Alpha and his best friend Brett Dalton. Luc and Brett don't have a traditional Alpha, second relationship so when Luc shows up at the Alphas home and announces "I can't get paid and it's all your fault" Brett just looks at him and asks "Why is it my fault"? (That was one of the funniest parts and classic Heather Long)
We meet Charlotte “Charlie” Miller she is the Hudson River Pack chief negotiator and Heads up Dalton International in New York City. Charlie is the youngest of five she has four annoying older brothers. Charlie is also hiding a secret about herself. When their Alpha has them working together Luc finds himself wanting to learn more of the sexy wolf.
With Heather Long's signature sassy, sweet and sarcastic female characters Charlie had quickly became one of my favorite from the series. If you haven't read the series yet you really should, although you don't have to I highly recommend the series.

Ever since I read the first chapter of this book in a teaser email from the author, I have been counting the days until I could finally read the whole story. The waiting was excruciating, but the book was totally worth the wait! 🥰 Grace Goodwin is one of my favorite authors, and I automatically order her books as soon as they become available. As much as I love the Interstellar Brides series by Grace Goodwin, this new series is just as amazing.
I really love the way the strong and sassy female characters are treated with the kind of respect that all women should get to experience in their lives. The main female character, Jamie, may start the story as a shy, introverted nerd playing a cool new video game, but she experiences the kind of great personal growth that can only come from having a supportive partner, successful efforts and finding their true purpose in life. While the main male character, Alexius (Alex), does not experience as much personal growth, he is still a compelling part of the story. The chemistry between the two main characters is explosive. Both characters are complex and multi faceted and you can’t help but root for a happy ending for this couple.
With this new series, we are introduced to a whole new universe that is detailed and unique. The story is fast paced, full of humor, action, drama and fun sexy scenes. I just can’t say enough good things about this book.
Each book of this series is a standalone story, and will center on one couple and their contribution to the overall storyline. Be prepared to read this book in one sitting! You will get so caught up in the story that you won’t want to put it down until the end of the book - and you will be ready for the next book in the series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

What a fantastic story! There is just enough reality that I was immediately enthralled in the outcome. The author really put me through the wringer with each new turn of the page, especially there at the end. I knew what was going on and yet my heart still skipped a beat. Jamie is the perfect gamer to become the first starfighter, she’s sassy and committed and not afraid to take risks. Alex is her perfect partner, he is dedicated and invested in her success, not to mention he is a gorgeous alpha male. I love the characters and can’t wait to see what happens with Jamie’s friends. They sound like they are every bit as sassy and gung ho as she is. Now it’s time for the real question, where can I get a copy of that game for myself?

As another reviewer stated - I am go to date myself, as I saw the movie when it came out (The Last Starfighter - loved it)

To be honest - I found the first half of the book really hard to get into (probably because I had already seen it in the movie). I picked it up and put it down several times and read another book before I finally just buckled down and kept reading until the story grabbed my attention ~50% mark. Others who have not seen the movie with love all of the detail that Grace put into the story.

I just wanted to get to the action. Once Jamie was in her ship, the story the story shifted to light speed. The characters are great (and I really want Alex's buddies to get stories). The way that Jamie embraces becoming a Starfighter shows that she is so much more than a delivery driver. Alex is a hottie but this story is about Jamie.

I cannot wait until we meet Lily and Mia. I can really envision an English Rose in a Gundam suit playing Wreck it Ralph!

Grab it and enjoy (from a gamer and a sci-fi addict)

I've always loved Grace Goodwin's stories and have read them all. The Interstellar Bride Series is an auto buy for me. I am still waiting anxiously for Warden Egara to get her mates (Soon, Please!).
On to this new series:
Jaime Miller of Baltimore, Md. is an introvert. She works as a delivery person, dropping off packages all day long, rarely seeing anyone. When she gets home, she gets to let out her alter ego, a Starfighter pilot of a super fast and deadly space craft. Starfighter Training Academy is the hottest new multiplayer game on the world market.

In the online chat room she pairs up with two new friends. Lily from England and Mia from Germany. Together they spend many months going through the game's many levels and challenges. They each created avatars for themselves and one to join them, each picking out traits from a provided list and created their personal ideal man. The only thing they could not pick out was the name of their dream
man. Jaime's is called Alexius, or Alex of Valerion. He is everything she could dream of in a man: tall, dark, handsome, muscular, intelligent, Alpha, teasing or dominating on occasion. Mia created Kassius while Lily has her Darius. They are all more than a little in love with their avatars.

They are all provided with initial verbal responses both for themselves and the avatars. Toward the end of the game, they have added many more words and phrases. The trio and their avatars each have different responsibilities to successfully complete each level of the game, earning points as they progress. Jaime is only one game away from winning.

The girls have mixed emotions about that. They want Jaime to win, but the loss of each other and more importantly the loss of their male avatars is painful.

They go for the win. They work together and Jaime shines and wins the final game. The screen shows her receiving the Starfighter crest from her co-pilot (Alex) and he asked her to become his life-long partner, both in their Starfighter and their personal lives. Of course Jaime accepts. The official pronounces that the bonding is recorded in the Hall of Records.

Jamie knows that she plans to play this game again and again, each time choosing to be a Starfighter pilot, and hopefully getting Alexius as her co-pilot.

She says goodnight to Mia and Lily and then cleans up her small living room and heads to bed.

Around three in the morning Jaime is awoken by loud knocking at her door. When she opens the door it is to see Alex standing there. He has to do some persuasive talking to get Jaime to agree to come with him.

Thus, begins a fast paced action-filled love story that will keep you up too late flipping pages until you reach the HEA.

Can't wait for the next book in the series! A well deserved FIVE STAR rating from me! Loved every minute of reading!

Rebel Wolf (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 4)

Wild wolf shifter meets shy, retiring bookworm. Has he learned enough about human ways to win over his destined mate?

Sophie Wilkins — bookworm and smoothie chef extraordinaire — has moved to Maui for a reminder of all the beauty and love in the world. And love is what she gets from shy, retiring, and utterly gorgeous man she meets. Chase is everything her lonely heart has ever yearned for.

Chase Hoving is a wolf shifter born and bred in the wild — a secret he must protect at all costs. After a decade in an elite Special Forces unit, he’s tempted to turn his back on the human world and return to that quieter, simpler life. Then destiny brings him Sophie, who fills his soul with hope and light.

But danger lurks everywhere, from the private estate Chase protects, to the wilds of his homeland, and even in the seaside park where Sophie works. Worse, evil forces from Sophie’s past are ruthlessly hunting her down. Has Chase learned enough about human ways to win over his destined mate — and protect her from a terrible fate?

I think most of us who have loved and followed the Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire series have been eagerly awaiting Chase’s story… and he was well worth the wait. Chase is an unusual man, even in the world of shifters he stands out as far from the norm. His mother was a full natural wolf, his father a hybrid shifter (one who could shift into different animals)… so to say there aren’t too many like Chase in the world would be an understatement. Parts of his life have been spent with his natural wolf pack, other parts in the military and with his other half- brothers. Now he has a pack full of various animals, brothers and brother of the heart but what is keeping him on the island isn’t loyalty to those he loves as family but to the sweet, innocent Sophie, his mate… and the girl he just barely has asked out on a date.

Rebel Wolf has a distinctly different feel to it, although if asked to pin down how I couldn’t do it. It’s Chase’s different heritage, his laid back attitude, the sense that he straddles two far different worlds and is barely holding on to either except for the knowledge of his mate. On the surface Sophie seems as normal as is humanly possible, but we all have secrets and Sophie’s just may get her killed. Watching two shy, quiet people fall in love, work their way through danger and threats and still hold on tight to each other was a delightful journey.

We’ll run into enemies both known and new, catch up with all of our old friends and find another pearl of desire in a most unusual place. Chase and Sophie were simply amazing together, they’re believable in their reactions to each other and to the danger. I loved every moment spent in this world once again. I promised myself to make this review shorter… because, frankly, I love to talk about this world… that’s about the shortest I can get.

Rebel Wolf is a story that you’ll easily get caught up in, danger you can sense and people to cheer with, laugh with and even cry with… and sexy as possible as well. I’d highly recommend this story and the entire series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader. I can’t wait to start on Rebel Heart to learn Cynthia’s back story, I’ve got it pre-ordered to drop on my Kindle on November 8th — I cannot wait.

Every time I start reading another of Anna Lowe’s Aloha Shifter books, I want to pack my things and move half-way across the world to Hawaii. Granted the shifters and the heroines in her books have to deal with some dangerous situations and power-hungry dragons, but it doesn’t diminish the beautiful setting and the romantic chemistry between the characters.
Chase is a little wilder, than the other shifters that life on the plantation, he basically spent his childhood and teenage years as a wolf and first joined the human world with his half-brothers, Tim and Connor. Most of the shifter’s have a soft spot for the quiet wolf shifter and who can blame them? He finds his mate Sophia in the local smoothie bar, she’s quiet, loves to read and loves to save dogs from the local shelter. A series of strange events bring the two of them closer than they have been before and what Chase doesn’t know about Sophie’s history is coming to get her and he needs to protect his mate.
The big silent type is so fitting for Chase and Sophie, the two of them have a wonderful love story that leaves me wanting more. I am looking forward to Cynthia’s story and to see where the it leads the aloha shifter family. Another great read from Anna Lowe!

Wolves of Willow Bend Book 13: Outlaw Wolves

Return to the world of the Wolves of Willow Bend. Join us as we take a look at how the former Lone Wolves are banding together to form a 6th pack. Can Luciana and Rayne work together and save their people?

She doesn’t seem to be anyone’s favorite wolf…

Luciana Esposito Barrows never imagined her dream of uniting the Lone Wolves and giving them a home could go so terribly awry. First, her brother rejected her, repudiating her from Seven Hills and leaving her without a powerful ally. Then the U.S. packs put her on notice, monitoring their movements, keeping them contained…then the Russians came. The last person in the world she expected to turn on her, was her own mate.

She was everything to him…

Rayne Barrows never thought of himself as much of a romantic. In his heart, he was a soldier and had always risen to the task where he was needed. Born in the heart of the Delta Crescent pack, he’d grown up alongside a future Alpha and willingly served her father as a faithful Hound. When the battles for ascension began, he couldn’t face those he loved in combat. He chose a solitary path instead. Journeying around the world, he found himself in Italy…and discovered a wolf he could love. Luciana Esposito captured his heart and he followed her—even when he didn’t believe in her cause. Now with a pack in tatters around them and their enemies closing in, Rayne faces his most brutal challenge.

To save the woman he loves and the pack they formed, he challenged her and took her position as alpha. Can their mate bond survive such a betrayal?

I've waited a long time for this story, and it was totally worth the wait.

This book opens with a visit from Julian and Dallas, the goal to have Three Rivers operate as the other packs do, through trade. Rayne is skeptical at first but has to agree with the benefits.

Now Luciana has done some pretty dumb things but she did it for love. Unfortunately Rayne took the reins from her in Alpha Challenge. Took the pack from her in what she considers the ultimate betrayal.

What she doesn't realize or even understand for that matter, is the fact that American packs are far different from the one she was raised in. So she keeps failing at least in her own eyes.

Rayne did what he had to do and has been giving her the space she says she needs. It is putting a strain on the pack and their mate bond. He loves her and now he has to win her back.

However the appearance of a Seven Hills Centurion, Rodrigo complicates matters.

A rather horrible twist of fate lands Luciana severely injured and near death. It's Rayne and the pack that keep her alive until the healer can arrive.

The healer was a pleasant surprise, as was all the visitors that come to aid the pack that needs help in a unique way. You'll love who shows up as much as I did.

All I can tell you folks, is have your tissues handy, and keep hydrated.

Plenty of tension, revelations, heart-breaking scenes, and the simmer to sizzle is worth every page. Yes, Luciana and Rayne win me over, eventually.

OUTLAW WOLVES is author Heather Long at her best. I have to admit that I was not particularly fond of Luciana in her other appearances, so for a writer to be able to take that person and turn them into someone likable, even sympathetic is rather amazing;

Luciana and her husband Rayne had gathered up lone wolves and gave them a pack, setting up in Seven Hills. This wasn't something that was easily accepted by the other pack alphas. Cool heads prevailed and the new pack was watched closely. Then Luciana made a mistake and allowed the Russian wolves free passage through her territory. That itself is a different story, but to protect her Rayne challenges her and wins. She feels betrayed though she had admitted, though only to herself, that she had missed some things a good alpha should have known about her people

Communication is usually the root of all problems and this is evidently one of those times. So a little work in that field is necessary and a bit of cleaning up a problem that arises from her brothers pack and then they will be able to work together. That's what Rayne wants after all.

Whoa. I wasn’t expecting an edge-of-your-seat read but Outlaw Wolves delivers drama and intrigue and infighting and a story of deep love, with a touch of self-loathing thrown in for good measure!

Luciana and Rayne start their story with a war raging, between the two of them. I won’t be giving away any spoilers by saying that Rayne had challenged Luciana to be alpha of Three Rivers…and she is his mate. That should give you some idea of the road these two travel!

On top of everything else that is going on between Rayne and Luciana, there is a sinister “air” in Three Rivers, one that puts Luciana right back in the crosshairs. Rayne is feeling the heat from the other Alphas in the US region and all of it kept my blood pumping thru the book.

Great to read about these wolves again. Suffice it to say that Outlaw Wolves is a bit ‘dark’ but will keep you reading, just to figure out what will happen next. It took me a while to warm up to Luciana but I did love Rayne. It was fun to visit with the rest of the wolves in Three Rivers, too. Really enjoyed the story.

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Anna Lowe loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting the later inspire her fiction. If she’s not hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story, you’ll find her hiking in the mountains or biking country roads. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Interstellar Brides® Program Book 16: Matched and Mated

Doctor Valck Brax is in love with Miranda, a human female who surrenders to his touch so beautifully. Finally ready to claim her forever, he resigns and returns to her with mating adornments in hand. But he’s too late. Miranda is gone, half a universe away and in the arms of a fierce Prillon warrior. 

Captain Trist Treval of Battlegroup Zakar is a cold and cunning fighter. Infamous for his unforgiving nature and calculating ways, war has been his life. Now, with three little words, “you’ve been matched,” everything changes.

I liked Miranda at first but by chapter 11, not so much. It was all “I want, I want, I want”. I get that you have needs and you should find yourself as you grow. But there are plenty of men who would have shown her that, even if they can be less than stellar at it all the time. Why she married a man that would make her feel like she had cooties after sex I don’t understand.

Now, I liked Brax. She was with him sporadically for six months. I don’t honestly think she gave him enough time to find his feet in their FWB before she took off to the IBP. The only way her choices made sense was because of his words and the amount of time he was gone for. It kind of read like she only spent about a day or two with him per month. That’s like a total of 12 days altogether. She never clarified her desire for a more serious relationship and I put that error squarely on her shoulders. Brax was just realizing how much she meant to him and then bam(!) she was gone. The serious nature of his job was a super distraction and can be excuse or reason enough for him needing time to get “there” with her.

Then the last thing I didn’t care for was the confrontation between the three of them. I was all into this story up until this point and had been eager for this showdown to finally get the three of them together. But Miranda thought very poorly of Brax in her head. And even called him a fool while he was groveling to her, again this was in her head. I felt she was demeaning towards him and that is not love. When you love someone you don’t see them as less than. Even if you fall for someone else at the same time. The heart is an amazing thing. It can expand to include many and can be super forgiving and I felt she lacked in that understanding.

I liked Tryst. He was a prillon who demanded excellence from a second. As for him giving up hope on a bride and never replacing his former second, I found inappropriately reflected his character, not just as a prillon but as a second in command of a battleship. In previous books, it has been shown that brides arrive at any stage in a males life, young or old once they have earned the right to be tested. So that was just poor planning or a remission of his duty as a prillon potential mate. But then, had there been a second there wouldn’t have been a point to this book.

Brax I liked, and yes he was a clueless guy that F#€ked up and lost his FWB/girl. But a lot could have been avoided had some conversations had happened and a little less sex. As I stated above a conversation about Miranda wanting a serious relationship, a conversation about Brax’s military record, and a conversation about whether any of them wanted babies.

This book was written well, even if I didn’t like how it played out and didn’t like the female lead. My favorite books are the two books with secret babies, one of which introduced the Miranda character. And of course nearly all of the colony books. But I didn’t like this story and I won’t read it again. Hope you can enjoy it more than I did.

This is an established series, the 16th, that includes alpha quality alien warriors who are DNA (and whatever else) matched with an Earth female with pretty much 100% compatibility potential.

In this story Miranda, a divorcee, is living off planet Earth with her best friend Natalie though she wants her own family but has to have a mate to start that process. So far all she's only enjoyed a 'friends with benefits' relationship with a male who knows what she needs and is able to provide it, but, can't or won't progress into more.

Turns out the male, Doctor Brax, is a secret agent for the I.C.. Being a doctor/physician, he's able to infiltrate and complete his missions with high success rates. In his mind he can't commit to Miranda as his job is dangerous and there's always the chance he won't return.

Fast forward into Miranda getting fed up and signing up with the Interstellar Bride program. Of course she's matched on the spot and transported to her potential/probable mate. A Prillon. To remind you, Prillion's mate as a pair with one female, and, surprise, surprise, he doesn't have a second.

I just can't see a purpose for this book in the series. Yes, it features a sexy time story of repeated BDSM adult intimacy scenes, and gives a reason to feature a second chance romance sort of thing, but otherwise has no value.

A sexy times story for fans of the series and author.

I love all of GG’s books. Each book is different and unique but all revolves around the Interstellar Brides program. This book was well written and the characters were fun to read from their POV. I didn’t find any of them to be annoying or frustrating. I loved how Brax traveled across the galaxy to take his mate back even though he knew it would not go well in his favor. 😍

While there is some BDSM elements in this book, it felt pretty tame and mild compared to others in my opinion. The title of “Master”, clamps, and waiting for commands during sex seemed to be the extent of the BDSM in this book. So if you want to branch out into the wonderful world of BDSM, this would be a good starting point to ease you into that sub genre. Great book with a HEA!

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!

The Scars of Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 14)

The past is never just the past especially when it haunts your every thought and turns your dreams to nightmares. Forgiveness is the only path to peace. Unfortunately, that route is filled with the faces of the dead.

The dove brings love, peace and protection to the world. She has the power to restore what’s been lost and heal the wounds of the past. If only he would let her.  

A love created by the Universe was supposed to be enough. Their happily ever after had been woven in the fabric of time, but that was before the years of guilt and shame ate away at the heart of the man and his beast.

Can one woman’s faith in a love that conquers all erase the scars of her dragon?

This book is about the scarred Guardsmen, Kellan. The backstory behind his scars was revealed, and it turns out Kellan was scarred both externally and internally. Kellan received his scars from an attack on a poor village, while he was trying to save the lives of three little girls. And thanks in part to the malice of one truly evil villain. Kellan was deeply impacted by those he couldn't save and blamed himself. Once his brethren tracked the man responsible they have been on the case ever since. His mate and Dove shifter, Olive has something to say about Kellan's scars and wants to help her mate finally heal from those old wounds. But to do so, the gang have to settle the score with the man responsible for Kellan's scars.There is another merging mating forming in this book, I think it got started in the previous book, but its mentioned a bit in this one. Olive has to break Kellan's defenses to get him to allow her in and allow her close. They have a mild courtship when compared to the other couples,except that one incident. Bring on the next one.

Wolves of Willow Bend Book 12: Ghost Wolf

Finally! We get to hear the story of Julian and Dallas.

Most Lone Wolves have a story—a pack they left behind, a love they lost, or worse, one they buried. Some leave their packs to roam because they crave freedom, and independence. Some leave because in their hearts, they can’t bear to stay. Some leave because they see no way to go back… 

Packs attacked. Humans forced to turn. Enforcers murdered.

Julian has been juggling the conflict without a real target for months, they always seem to be just one step behind the Volchitsa and even the wolves they’ve captured can’t tell them enough. With the fate of the packs resting squarely on his shoulders, Julian, the Chief Enforcer, will swallow his pride to seek out the one wolf he knows can help them all, the one who seems to know all the players, who can think like them…if anyone can find the Volchitsa it’s the ghost he’s hunted for decades…

WOW! We have watched from afar throughout the series Chief Enforcer Julian and the complicated dance he weaves with the rogue wolf Dallas Dalton. A romance in the past had been hinted at and now we get the whole story. And what a story it is. Dallas is fire and Julian is ice but when they get together it gets really steamy. This story took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride that I have yet to recover from. This is a fantastic story and although it can be read standalone I recommend reading the rest of this fantastic series first.

I received an ARC of this book, I am reviewing of my own volition.

Oh what a tangled web! This book takes us on a journey through past and present. Written with glimpses of history woven into the lives of Julian and Dallas starting in 1971 and progressing to the present.
Now Julian has always been a bit mysterious, and no one really knows much about him outside his chief enforcer role. This book changes all that and more.

We've seen glimpses of Dallas especially where Chrystal is concerned and we've seen her with Julian on one memorable occasion. Now a truce needs to be formed and a solution found to the Volchitsa problem, for which it appears Dallas may hold the key.

The pressure is on and this book is one OMG after another. However it is the past that truly engages me. A young Dallas and an enforcer named Julian.

I expected this book to be hot in more ways than one and trust me it surpasses all expectations. There is shock and surprise as Julian and Dallas spar verbally and physically.

Truths beyond games, a trial, an Alpha Conclave and more send this book to the top of my all time favorites.

I loved this story of Julian and Dallas Dalton. Julian and Dallas hid their romance very well from everyone because if they were discovered then one or both of them would have been killed as it was against the rules of Lone Wolves and Enforcers. This was a well developed story with each characters back story. I liked the way the author gave a running commentary on their past history and where they are now. Discovering that he has a child, who is not only the Willow Bend Omega but also mated to a Hunter was a total surprise. It was nice to also catch up with Margo and the other Enforcers.

Didn’t want this one to end but overall, I was a bit disappointed in the ending and the reasoning behind what all has taken place. For him to spend all that time and go at them so successfully just for him to be that foolish to end it by himself was silly. The way the last fight was going I just knew we were going to see what all the alphas could do together, so I was a little let down. The story behind what really happened with them I really enjoyed but after reading Chrystal’s story I knew what the outcome was going to be.

He took to her way better than I thought necessary from the beginning and with what happened when he she took off in China or wherever they were I knew it was more to the story. I wanted to know more about him and his connection to his pack, finding out who he was related to was good. I’m still wanting something to go down in Delta Crescent though, it seems like they have been left out of the stories. Hopefully this isn’t coming to an end because I really enjoy the reads

Rory is the youngest dragon brother and something of a jokester .

Just one problem, a Griffin has decided Claire is his mate and he intervenes by sending his brother and a bunch of other griffins to bring her "home" , just as she's riding to heal Rory. Of course with Rory in a coma, the other Dragons set up a rescue plan to go and get Claire back, but Rory takes a turn for the worse, and a close family friend lends him some strength and we'll, your going to need to read the book to learn the rest !! I don't do spoilers !! Just know that this is one of the best of the 13 books in the series. There is action, angst, love, fear, and several new key characters are introduced.

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).

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.
