Whats a girl to do hen the word wedding causes you to have stressed out panic attacks?

Jordan has had enough the more talk of this big wedding to the alpha's son Aric the more she knows she can't do it. She had wanted a family and few friends not the huge mess that it has no become. I few days left on there trip to Vegas why couldn't she do what Nic had done elope!

This is a wonderful short story with a great way to pull all the books together it has wonderful lines and humor from the couples involed. i cant wait for book 4 in this amazing series.

cute lines from the book
“Minus her throwing herself at you drunk in front of the Elvis impersonator and trying to strip you naked so you could ‘hit that’.
Mason’s eyes widened, horrified. “What? What did I do to deserve this kind of punishment?”
“Aric Wolfe!” Barbara yelled. “We gave you some time to...talk. Get out of there so we can try to salvage her dress.

Why wait to get married when you're in Vegas?!?

With all the stress of planning a wedding and Jordan's OCD friend Emma taking over, Jordan has lost sight of what she really wanted out of the wedding. But lucky for Jordan she has friends and a hunky Alpha willing do to whatever necessary to make Jordan happy.

With old insecurities put to rest Jordan is ready to embrace the love of her mate and new family as well as the future.

This was cute short story and just what you need to break up the tension between problems surrounding the Rahound Pack.

A great read! Jordan and Aric, are mated and will be getting married, but the wedding is getting out of hand. Jordan wants it to be a family wedding, so Aric sets out to make her dream come true. Jordan also comes to terms with her family's past and learns that the family she has is the one that matters.

Unexpectedly Mated: Sassy Mates Book 3

Great continuation of the story. Gotta love this group of friends. They stick together through thick and thin. Looking forward to reading more.

After years of lusting over Jake Wolfe, Nicole finally got a taste of the dirty-talking bad boy. During the scenting ceremony, he showed her how explosive things can be between them. But Nicole doesn’t do love. She doesn’t even know what love is. So how can she know if a relationship with Jake would be the right path to take?

Jake Wolfe wants Nic more than his next breath. She’s curvy, mouthy and so hot his blood boils just thinking of her. But Nic’s been keeping him at a distance. And Jake is tired of her games. One fateful trip to Sin City and all bets are off.

After a fun night of drinking, Nic wakes up married to Jake and with a second shifter wanting her for himself. She’ll have to finally face the feelings she has or shut them out forever. Their newly formed bond will either allow her to open her heart to love or leave Jake without a mate to call his own.

The Sassy Mates are back again with a whole new twist this time! This is book 3 in the series, be sure to check out the first two before reading this one. So this books starts off at the same point as the first two, at the scenting ceremony. If you are like me and love Milly's hot and sexy starts, this one will not disappoint 😉 Then we fast forwards to a few months later, reminding us of what has happened to Jordan and Karla in the first two books before continuing on! Book 3 focuses on Jake and Nic, you can expect hot & sexy scenes, comic relief, frustration at the evil scum, and lack of communication - what more could you ask for! Nic has a very cold mother and step-father, who only are looking for fame and power, they never have shown Nic love so when she finally starts to feel something for Jake she is so confused! And now a bit about the story...

Jordan is worried about the plans for her upcoming wedding, after the attacks on her and Ellie she is nervous, and now she has to plan this gigantic wedding. Nic comes to the rescue with the idea of heading to Vegas for a girls only bachelorette party to take her mind off everything. It will also let her to see her sister too, she will unfortunately have to see her parents too, but what is one dinner in a long trip to Vegas? Especially after she gets smashed and pulls one of the standard Vegas tricks. Little does she know that trick is what will save her life and her heart!

Favorite passages:
- “My kids think there was some sort of miracle conception where they’re concerned.” She shrugged her shoulders and smiled at Kel. “If only they’d realize it took a lot of growling and spanking to actually get each of them.”
- “I’ll tell him that if he hopes to get any kind of a long lasting relationship with you he better do more than make your panties wet.”
- “You belong to me.” His evil smile grew wide. “You’ve been bought and paid for, little one.”
- “You got chocolate and coffee? I might let you seduce me all over again for some of that.”
- “Cut it out. You know you’re hot. All those tattoos can drive a woman wild in all kinds of ways. Let’s not forget the sexy ass.”
- Ellie shrugged. “You know what they say, whiskey gives you balls.” She passed him a shot. “Here, have one. Maybe then you’ll grow some too.”

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

From the moment that Nicole met Jake Wolfe’s eyes it was lust, love at first sight. For eight years it was the battle of the sexes between the two of them with neither one the winner until the night of the scent ceremony. Since the night when Jake had claimed her as his mate, eight weeks had passed and Nicole had done her best to avoid him. She looked at Jake as a player, a man-whore, someone that would never settle for one woman and only one woman. The fact that he owned a strip club that had women paying shifters to strip really set Nicole’s jealousy button off. Everything about him made her feel insure and the fact that he had not stated how he felt about her didn’t help at all! Did they even have a relationship?

Nicole was driving him insane! He had waited eight years before claiming her as his mate during the scenting ceremony and what good had it done? She still would not accept him and avoided him at all cost. He was delegated to watching her from a distance more or less like a stalker. When he heard that the girls were going to Vegas to get away and relax it sounded like a good idea until he got a call telling him that another man had approached his mate. Not in this lifetime, he had waited long enough and it was time to complete the mating!

Jake has his hands full convincing his stubborn mate to accept him. Can Nicole see beyond the surface and see the real Jake? Will the war that is brewing between some of the shifter factions pour over and drag them under? Read this action packed, sexy novel and discover the World of the Wolfe family and their feisty mates.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! If you want to read about a strong Alpha female and a sexy hot Alpha male this book is definitely for you! This book is filled with romance, lust, hot sex and conflict between the Alpha male and a sassy female.

Title: UNEXPECTEDLY MATED
Series: Sassy Mates #3
Category /Genre: Paranormal Romance
Recommended for: 18+ due to sexual content
Received from: Amazon purchase
Grammar/editing: B – a few small errors

This is the third book in the Sassy Mates series. They do need to be read in order.

The first time Nicole met Jake, she was visiting her friend Ellie. She opened the wrong door and there he stood, naked and wet from the shower. Nic lusts for Jake. Jake knows that she is his mate, but Nic doesn’t understand how to love and Jake refuses commitment. Ah, but the social lubricant known as alcohol in the City of Sin leads these two down to the altar. When you get out of the way of your brain and let the heart lead, wonderful things can happen. Of course, some not so wonderful things can also happen and they will need to be handled.

Starting at the scenting ceremony once again, we are introduced to more of the personalities of Nicole and Jake. Their passion is smoking hot. Finding out about Nic’s family and the type of people they are, certainly does help to put her personality into perspective. I’m just glad that they hadn’t destroyed the fierce warrior that she is. She stands up for herself and I was cheering every step of the way.

In each of the previous books, I mentioned a theme. So, I will try with this one. In fact, I think there are two: ‘be true to yourself’ and ‘allow yourself to be happy.’

Milly Taiden never fails to deliver sassy, BBW girls and hot, alpha, protective men. I love this series. First there was Aric and Jordon. Then Nathan claimed Karla. Now Jake has finally gotten his Nicole down the aisle. Ellie has four brothers. Three have found and claimed their mates in spectacularly different ways. I can’t wait to see how Mason corrals his chosen sassy girl!

A Mate’s Bite: Sassy Mates Book 2

Mission: Don’t fall in love. After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she’d been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn’t been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Mission: Crack her walls. She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he’ll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.

Mission: Embrace the bite With Karla’s wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla’s trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf’s promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.

His mother was too much. “Fine. Ask what you want to know then.”

“What’s going on here? I sense you and Karla aren’t where you should be for a pair ready to welcome some babies into the world.”

Wait, what? “What do you mean babies? I scented the change. Only heard one heartbeat. How did you come up with multiples?”

She sighed. “Son, you are—what do you young people call it? Oh yes, a noob. I know scents. I know babies. You’re having multiples.”

His heart stopped and he swallowed hard. “How many is multiple?”

Two or three. They’re very in sync, so it’s hard to say. But definitely more than one.”

Once again Milly Taiden does it again. Fan-freaking-tastic book. Couldn't put it down, but I had to at times.
This is yet another hot and sexy book. This one focuses on Karla and Nate. But starts off at the scenting ceremony just like "Scent of a Mate".
The pack is still having troubles, but Nate makes time for Karla. Karla has had issues with men and family all her life, and has a hard time letting him in, but boy when she does its full blown!
Karla and Nate are hot! Nate is hot sexy wolf.
Loved this story of Nate and Karla. Not sure which book is my favorite. But I know my hubby loves when I read a book by Milly Taiden!
This book will get you hot, then angry and ready to shift and tear someone apart. This author really tells a story that you get into and feel everything the characters do. When Karla's sister was confronting her, I felt Karla's guilt and rage I also felt Jordon's rage and wanted to be the one holding Kass up against the wall threatening her!!! I felt Karla's fear when they were threatened.

The only girls in the "group" that we really see in this book are Jordan and Karla. Ellie, Emma and Nicole are mentioned but not present.
Highly recommend you read and take this journey to know more about the Wolfe family and meet Karla.

I want to preface the following reviews by saying that I am not a true fan of erotica, I find that it can often get coarse and lapse into unnecessary description of the act of sex, without touching on any romance or emotional levels for the characters. I am happy to say that Taiden has managed to fully develop her rutting wolves into compassionate characters with hearts of gold. Yes, there is a lot of sex involved in both books, but you cannot help but falling in love with the Wolfe brothers, and the entire Wolfe family for that matter. We cannot forget sister, Ellie; nor mom and dad.
Normally I would segregate the reviews into two parts, but I feel that the two books compliment each other so well that they shouldn't be parted.
What begins in Scent a Mate is the story not just of a couple coming together after years of tormenting themselves; but the beginning of a family saga. The Wolfe family, and leaders of the pack, hold everyone that is dear to them, close to their hearts and their souls. Through a delightful attention to detail and character development, Taiden introduces all of the characters in what I hope will be a beautiful series, touching each member of the family. I am seeing an epic saga in my mind, and can only hope that Taiden has it within her to cover each family member; and then bring us an epic conclusion. Am I asking too much?
Yes, these are books that clearly fall into the erotica category, but unlike so many novels before that fall short in plot and story development; Taiden has blasted into the realm of dramatic story with a compliment of steamy sex scenes that...honestly, will make your panties damp. Yes, you heard that here. My own wolf better watch out tonight, he may get ravaged.
Minor issues with fact consistency and odd phrase selections, left the stories lacking the ability to earn the coveted 5 Star reviews; but without a doubt I am honored to say that both rank at a 4.5 Star level.

I couldn't wait to read this book after I read the first one. I will say that I am desperate because I want to read the rest now! I know that I won't be able to do that so I will just have to read this book again while I wait.

I thought there was some great one lines with Jordan and Aric. Karla and Nate have even more. Man I want my own wolf to take care of all my needs.

If you want a book that is full of hot passion and has some added suspense in it this is the book for have been waiting for. You will also have to see how the relationship works between these two. You have an alpha that wants what he wants and a woman who is used to coming last with her mom. Never depending on anyone. I loved this story and it makes me think about what the author has in store with the other books in this series. I just can't get enough of these shifters.

So while I am waiting and in heat with this book while waiting for the next one, you should just try it and see what it does to you!

This is Karla and Nate's story and is again on the predictable side. While that doesn't mean it isn't a great story it does make it harder to give it a 5 star rating. The characters are strong and the stories are all interrelated but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't all be a little unpredictable. While each of these young women are all different they are all portrayed as slightly damaged in some way by pasted tragedy or relationships, but that doesn't mean there could be more variance in their actual stories.

Each of them seems to be fighting their own inner villains and are unable to comment, which with the shifter's is something that must happen for them to be together and content. Unfortunately, it's only their own stubborn need to not commit that is the stumbling block and after a while that is just not enough to keep the reader invested. The reader needs the emotional investment to make it the 5 star rating it should be.

Ms. Taiden needs to feed our inner child to mate this come up to it's full 5 star potential. We like this but we want more. In this case more would be better.

Scent of a Mate: Sassy Mates Book 1

Mission: Scent a Mate
Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack’s scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan’s scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha
When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan’s strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Anyone who looks at my previous reviews will know that I am a fan of Ms. Taiden. However another thing they will note is that I do tend to be very critical as well. I set a certain standard and if that standard is not met, I have no problem stating it publicly. Such has been the case in the past.

The characters were funny and likable. They were relatable in a way none of Ms. Taiden's previous characters ever have been. Jordan and the girls reminded me of my friends at that age. Hell, they remind me of certain friends of mine now. The women are strong and independent yet know when to ask for help. This very thing is what makes Aric officially my favorite shifter hero. He knew when to push and when to let Jordan stand on her own to feet. There were no "Me Tarzan, you Jane" moments here, much to my enjoyment. And the best part? Unlike too many of Ms. Taiden's heroines, Jordan isn't suddenly struck stupid the second she is mated. She is just as strong and independent after as is was before she and Aric get together.

Issues with the book... it ends at 78%. Very true. However, the whole percentage thing is purely an Amazon thing. You're getting a full story here. You just happen to also get a novella written by Ms. Taiden under her other pen name for FREE. This is NOT a sample or excerpt of another book. This is a FREE short story. Essentially getting 2 stories for the price of one. So we really can't complain. Plus the author does tell us that there is a free short included at the end. We are forewarned before purchasing the book of this. So we can't exactly deduct stars for it ending at 78% because of a short story at the end if we the readers don't bother to read what was plainly stated in the author's notes.

The story ends in a cliffhanger... This is book 1 of a new series. Just like in the BDB books, Dohner's New Species series and countless others, the enemy is a common thread that will hopefully tie all the books together. I won't pretend to understand where the author is going with this. However, having read thousands of books just like the ones mentioned above, it's not unheard of or uncommon for the evil enemy to not be caught in book one. Otherwise you end up with a different enemy in every single book which is just ridiculous. I will hold off judgement on the cliffhanger until I see where the author goes with this.

With enjoyable characters, a great plot and some action thrown in for good measure, this has got to be my favorite book by Ms. Taiden to date. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble the other girls get in to!

Scent Mate by Milly Taiden
Reviewer: Kris
Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

From my own personal TBR list. I was jonesing for a shifter book and this hit the spot.

I haven't met a Taiden book yet that I haven't liked.

Shifters; strong, loyal... HOT! Just the way I like them. This story followed a more "true" shifter storyline, if there is such a thing, but there are always little twists. You get a good sense that the author is attuned with her characters and the world she has created.

Jordan is a strong human female that has been friends with shifters most of her life. She has also had a crush on her best friend's shifter brother all of that time. She was more or less adopted into this family as they helped care for and raise her. Jordan's own parents were alcoholics and could not be counted on.

Aric is the best friend's brother, and a hot piece of soon-to-be alpha. Like most alpha males he is very protective and possessive. But with that he knows Jordan's personality and he doesn't push for submissiveness from her. Not that I could imagine that. He works hard to show Jordan that he is the one. When it came to pack you got a sense of just how fair of a leader he would be.

This book had crotch sniffing, tree climbing, mystery and great romance. There is some set up for future installments with secondary characters... at least that's my hope.

This is book 1 of Sassy Mates story and is Jordon Alvarez, human, and Aric Wolfe, wolf shifter's story. It seems that this entire family of wolves with exception of Ellie is destine to find their true one among the human race.

Aric the alpha has known for years that Jordan belonged to him but he has waited until the scenting ceremony of a clan member to finally take the steps to bring her into his sphere as his mate. Jordan has loved him forever as well but has never believed she will be the one to find her true love and her mate in Aric. Although she hoped and wished and wanted it, she has yet to embrace it.

The scenting ceremony allows Aric to mark her as his without the finally mating, but that causes major problems as an Alpha female from another pack has decided he should belong to her. She has arranged accidents and kidnapping an other insidious things trying to get rid of Jordan all to no avail. When it is finally discovered by the clan she is quickly eliminated and the wedding and the mating are undertaken.

It's a good but somewhat predictable story. The characters in this series are all close friends, the ladies that is, and the men/shifter wolves are brothers. I like Ms Taiden's stories but they are at times more predictable then I would like and they tend to be all in the same vain as to plot and movement of the characters. I think a little more variance and some variety of plot here would be nice. Therefore, only the 4 star rating.

In a world where werewolves and vampires are common knowledge, Jordan Alvarez, a human orphaned at 13, met Ellie Wolfe at school. She has had a crush on her best friend's big brother, an alpha, since the first day they met. Jordan is writing a family history for the Wolfes and spends a night on the mountainside to watch a mating ritual for the pack so that it can be included in the history. When sexy Aric finds her hiding in the trees with another wolf threatening her, he steps in to protect her from the visiting stranger. He claims her as his own, but can he keep her safe?

Favorite line: "I'm not some little woman to stay barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen while the big sexy man takes care of business." He grinned. "You think I'm sexy?"

This is the first in the new Sassy Mates series and cannot wait to read the books for the three other brothers who make up "the sexy four" and Ellie's destined mate. I absolutely loved this book. The sex is steaming hot. Their passion is tender and possessive. Their love is complete and fulfilling. Ms. Taiden had me laughing so hard my husband started muttering about straightjackets, again! I laughed, swooned, and had to fan myself, many times during this tale.

The theme is that sometimes the best part of your family is the part you chose to include in your heart. It takes Jordan a while to get it, but that realization is the fulfillment of the dreams she didn't even voice to herself.

Twinkle Twinkle Sassy Little Star: Dragon Guard Book 23

Back to the swamp. Back to the wolves. Back to her…

From the moment Grey laid eyes on Star he knew beyond all doubt she was the woman for him, but the sassy little she-wolf wouldn’t even give him the time of day. Then he was called home and all hopes of claiming his mate disappeared. Now, he’s heading back to the sweltering heat of the Florida wetlands and this time she will be his.

Fight the rogues. Fight the wizards. Fight the attraction she has for him…

Star thought the problems with her love life had flown out the window as she watched Grey fly off into the sunset, but now the sexy dragon is back and looking better than a man has a right to. Not only is he tall, dark and handsome, but he makes her wolf roll over and beg to be taken. What’s a girl to do when her happily ever after is staring her in the face but she’s not sure she deserves it?

The Florida Swamps have never been hotter. The wolves are under attack, the full moon is only days away and as if that wasn’t enough, out-of-control wildfires are closing in on all around them. Praying for a miracle won’t work. Fate and Destiny can’t help this time. Only the white-hot magic created by a dragon and his one true mate can save the day and Grey has no intention of taking no for an answer.

“Twinkle, twinkle, my sassy little Star. This dragon knows exactly who you are. And baby, I’m coming for you…”

After all, Fate Will Not Be Denied…or will it?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

These two are such a wonderful couple. Star still believes that she is the reason her entire pack was wiped out. Grey still grieves the disappearance of his brother. Neither one knew just how connected the two incidents actually were!

Everything just flew & the next thing I know I’m finished reading this book.

Grey is not only his name but the color of his dragon & I don’t really remember him in any of the previous books in this series.

Star, is a wolf that I don’t really remember either but, she supposedly has had past dealings with the bad guy.

But, you’ll have to read the book to find out what the deal was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia Mills continues to entertain us with her wonderful stories
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2018
Twinkle Twinkle Sassy Little Star is a fast, easy and extremely enjoyable read. Julia Mills continues to entertain us with her wonderful stories. If this is the first of the Guardsmen's series you have read, I highly recommend reading all the rest, you will love them and all the characters you will meet.
Star is a sassy wolf who has lost all to the demons of the world and has come to rely on herself for what she needs.
Grey is a grey dragon who also has lost to the same demons. The fates have declared they are to be mated but Star is fighting it.
This story has a little of everything. Some violence, co-operation between species, and some smoking love scenes. Definitely a book for 18+. Happy Reading!!

Claws, Class and a Whole Lotta Sass: Dragon Guard Book 20

Hiding in plain sight as the Pack Healer for a bunch of wolves was the perfect cover…

Using ancient magic to hide her true nature hadn’t always been easy, but it beat the hell outta being dead…then he waltzed in. Six foot-nine inches of pure male dragon, looking better than a man had a right to and making her dragoness wake from a long hibernation to spread her wings, not only rocked Dannika’s world, it almost turned it upside-down. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an evil as old as time and twice as deadly has reared its ugly head. Her ability to hide behind her patented sassy attitude may have kept Dannika safe for all these years, but now the future of all things paranormal is at stake and only she holds the key to its survival…well, at least part of it.

It was supposed to be a simple cross country trip, but then, he’d heard that somewhere before…
Since the death of his father almost a century ago, Wolfe McCallum’s life had been a series of incredible ups and devastating downs that made riding a roller coaster seem like a walk in the park. It also didn’t help that he freely admitted to being more stubborn than a mule and twice as contrary. He prided himself on being able to outlast, out argue, or just plain irritate anyone on the planet into giving up without raising a single claw or breaking a sweat…until he damn near tripped over the most beautiful woman in the world.

One look…one kiss…one extraordinary night…

Secrets unlocked, Destiny knocking at the door, and a Fate that will not be denied. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, be prepared for sudden stops, and by all means – buckle up. Fireworks are the least of your worries when one bull-headed dragon and his sassy-since-birth dragoness are faced with saving not only themselves, but everyone and everything they hold dear.

The Universe may not make mistakes, but She doesn’t make things easy either. It’s gonna take claws, class, and a whole lotta sass to save the day this time.

Wolfe McCallum, a Dragon, along with Dragons Grey & Angus go to help out at the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack. They are being plagued by Rogues who are afraid of Dragons! Wolfe has been having dreams about a gorgeous woman and was told his mate is near or he's about to meet her. Oh now way - Wolfe doesn't want any mate at this time. When they get to the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack, he sees the woman of his dreams and groans and realizes she is his Mate. When they meet she knows he's her mate too but mind speaks to him not to tell the others what she is. Of course things don't go easily for Wolfe with his sassy Mate. Then there is the evil that is coming for her. Will the prophecy come true now that she has met her Mate?
Loved this story and the sassy Dani and the arrogant Wolfe. They are perfect for each other. There's suspense, drama, angst, magic, humor and romance.

This standalone addition to the series features Wolfe, a relatively young member of the Dragon Guard. He and a group of friends from the Guard are assigned to protect a wolf shifter pack from rogues during treaty negotiations. But when he arrives at the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack border, he senses something he isn't ready for - his mate.

Danika Do Chara, Morning Star of the Crystal Clan of dragons, was adopted into the Blue Ridge pack at an early age following the death of her parents. Using powerful dragon magic, she cloaks what she is and has promised to reveal herself only after she finds and bonds with her mate. At that time, she and her mate will face off against The Darkness, a grave threat against the future of all living beings. But when Wolfe and the rest of the Guard arrive, he recognizes she is dragon, and begins his pursuit of his mate. Dani has no desire to start the clock of the prophecy, however, or to bond with the very large and arrogant stranger. But she will find that fate cannot be denied, for better or for worse.

This is an easy read, but is lacking in depth of character development and history. The ultimate battle with The Darkness was like a little town you drive through, blink and you miss it. Too much sass and not enough delivery for me. It gets 3.5 stars.

This omnibus is intended for adults that have no problems with dirty sex, humor and action. If that’s you, enjoy!

Twinkle Twinkle Sassy Little Star: Sassy Ever After (Dragon Guard Book 23)

“Twinkle, twinkle, my sassy little Star. This dragon knows exactly who you are. And baby, I’m coming for you…”

Back to the swamp. Back to the wolves. Back to her…

From the moment Grey laid eyes on Star he knew beyond all doubt she was the woman for him, but the sassy little she-wolf wouldn’t even give him the time of day. Then he was called home and all hopes of claiming his mate disappeared. Now, he’s heading back to the sweltering heat of the Florida wetlands and this time she will be his.

Fight the rogues. Fight the wizards. Fight the attraction she has for him…

Star thought the problems with her love life had flown out the window as she watched Grey fly off into the sunset, but now the sexy dragon is back and looking better than a man has a right to. Not only is he tall, dark and handsome, but he makes her wolf roll over and beg to be taken. What’s a girl to do when her happily ever after is staring her in the face but she’s not sure she deserves it?

The Florida Swamps have never been hotter. The wolves are under attack, the full moon is only days away and as if that wasn’t enough, out-of-control wildfires are closing in on all around them. Praying for a miracle won’t work. Fate and Destiny can’t help this time. Only the white-hot magic created by a dragon and his one true mate can save the day and Grey has no intention of taking no for an answer.

“Twinkle, twinkle, my sassy little Star. This dragon knows exactly who you are. And baby, I’m coming for you…”

After all, Fate Will Not Be Denied…or will it?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

These two are such a wonderful couple. Star still believes that she is the reason her entire pack was wiped out. Grey still grieves the disappearance of his brother. Neither one knew just how connected the two incidents actually were!

You have to love a woman with a lot of sass! Dani had a very good reason for hiding who and what she was. Wolfe just had a “wee” bit of trouble understanding that one!
