Blurb: August Rinehard took his job as a soldier in the shifter’s rebel army seriously. This lone wolf had a simple mission: find India and get her back. Their beloved leader’s sister has been targeted by the humans and if they get her, the world could delve into utter chaos. However, along the way, he finds a hurt wolf, Kory, a shifter that was subjected to the human’s entrapment and torture.

The two hit it off immediately and the passion between them sizzles. But the lone wolf doesn’t want a relationship, or worse, mate. While they search for their leader’s beloved sister, the pull of the moon is nearly unbearable. A quick romp in the sack leads to the beginning of the bonding phase that neither of them can deny. Can these two loners find a happy life together?

Or will their bond be the end of them both?

Review: Each book in the Shifters of North Point collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

This book actually has a dark tone to it. There is very little humor, which is if you can find it and for me that was a negative. I want my stories to have a bit of humor in them and this one didn’t have it. I wasn’t so sure if I actually wanted to finish this book or not, but it has a great story line that will keep your attention that is for sure.

August is one hell of a soldier for the shifter’s rebel army. He is tough, loyal and downright mean some times. He finds a human chained to the wall and a wolf stuck in a trap. The human could die for all he cares, but the wolf was unlike any wolf he had ever seen. The human turned out to be none other than one of the scientist who experimented on wolves. He was also Gregory’s son. They wanted Gregory dead right along with his partner.

Kory had been one of the experimented on wolves and he was stronger than any ever born. He wants paybacks for what had been done to him and it meant trusting August. Then a quick sexy time, ended up starting a bond with the man. Things were going to get real interesting real fast. Too bad they had to deal with Jeffery and his experiments.

I did enjoy reading this but there was something missing to truly enjoy. I hope that the next one has a bit of humor in it.

I guess I will wait and see what book three has in it.

A Wizard in Waikiki 01
by

A.J. Llewellyn

Summoned from the past, Konu rises naked from the sea to reclaim his power for the freedom to live—and love. If the forces of evil don’t get to him first!

On a hot day in Waikiki, beachgoers are stunned when a tall, handsome man rises from the ocean. Striding naked to a small, ringed enclosure containing four huge stones most tourists never even notice, he becomes visibly upset. These are Wizard Stones, positioned between the beach and the foot traffic on Kalakaua Avenue. Konu, the naked man, is agitated by a young Asian girl draping her beach towel over the stones. He’s come a long way, from Tahiti, and is one of the ancient wizards whose power was infused into these sacred stones four hundred years ago.

With the invisible battle between good and evil raging, Konu has been dispatched to help balance the power. Landing in modern-day Waikiki, he’s stunned by the changes – and to find he is alone. A cop tries to arrest him for indecent exposure but the young girl’s grandfather – who thinks Konu’s a homeless lunatic offers him refuge. Will the ancient forces of evil beat this wizard in Waikiki? Or can Konu find his power again, and perhaps…even love?

Blurb: Paden’s life couldn’t be any more complicated if he tried. Michaya is his mate. The problem is, the man is a vampire. Not that Paden cares, but the king of fairies enforces strict laws, and Paden will pay a hefty price if he gives in to his desires and allows Michaya to claim him.

Michaya is relentless when it comes to the pocket-sized fairy. Paden is his, and the cold shoulder treatment has gone on far too long. But when a contract falls into his lap, Michaya is torn between pursuing his mate and taking down a malicious drug lord.

When Ricardo Delgado becomes Michaya’s target, the drug lord has a few tricks of his own, and those tricks involve Paden. Not only does Paden have to dodge King Oberon, but Michaya has to stop his mate from becoming Delgado’s next victim.

Review: Each book in the Brac Pack Next Gen series features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is in fact a branch off of multiple series so I would start with Brac Pack first. The connected series include Brac Pack, Brac Village, Christian’s Coven, Zeus’s Pack, Demon Warriors and Shadow Tribe.

Paden is a fairy and his mate is a vampire. Fairy law makes it impossible to mate someone who is not fairy. He tries to run from it but when he gets his sexy little ass in trouble it is his mate that saves him. But damn does he give a good effort in staying away.

Michaya is one of the twin’s son, and has the gift of being able to get his sexy mate pregnant, which was a bonus. He is also Christian’s nephew as well so he has the back up when things go wrong, and things do in fact go wrong. So hot damn, we get to see the old guys showing up, not that they will ever look old.

Paden has become a favorite character after reading about this. I loved the whole pregnancy also. He doesn’t let anything get to him, and that includes his mate. He is as feisty as they come and is a spit fire mate.

I enjoyed reading this story and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I had so much fun in fact that I would definitely not only recommend it, but I will read it again.

Way to go Lynn Hagen for giving me an awesome read.

Blurb: “I need you, Ian” … Those words haunt Ian Kline, mostly because he has no idea who whispered them. Ian has been dreaming about him for weeks.

Review: Each book in the True Blood Mate collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Now I must admit that I read this several times when it first came out, but when I saw that one of the books had been re-edited I had to read them again.

Ian has been having the same dream for several weeks. He has fallen in love with his dream man. On the day he was to be crowned, he finds out that his sexy dream is alive. Billy has been held prisoner to a sick ass hat, since he was a child. When he realized the man and coven they were going to kill was Ian, he did the only thing he could think of.

He killed his master.

Ian binds Billy to him to keep him from getting executed, but to their shock it turns out that Billy had been one of the kids sold. The problem was someone was still trying to kill him and take Billy back. He will do everything to protect his mate.

I enjoyed reading this book and as soon as I finish this little paragraph I am going to get started on the next story. Stormy has turned into one of my favorite authors, always keeping me satisfied with her stories.

This has been a great read.

Pregnant with his abuser’s pup, Conner O’Brien is on the run from his ex and cronies. The little town of Blue Moon, populated by a local pack of werewolves, is as good a place as any to take refuge. Conner plans to lay low for a while, before moving on. Meeting a persistent Alpha was not in his plans. The more he tries to shake off Hayden, the more the Alpha becomes fired up. Sooner or later, Conner suspects he’ll have trouble trying to ignore the heat threatening to explode between them.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jane is a new author for me and after reading the blurb I knew I wanted to get my hands on her book. To me there is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men. If you add in m-preg then I am definitely sold on them. For such a short little story, this has one hell of a fantastic story line. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way.

Conner is one quirky and smart ass Omega who has been hurt before. On the run with a pup in him, he knew he had to find safety. He had expected just to find some good pie in Blue Moon but he finds himself a very sexy Alpha. Hayden had been told to find a mate and settle down, but no one had expected a wolf to take a cute little tabby as a mate. Things are going to get interesting.

I was excited after reading this and new I had found a new author to follow. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Hot wolves, spunky Omega tabby cat, excitement, danger and lots of pie are just a bit of what you get in this. For such a short story you are given a lot of explosive reading in this book.

I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

Baxter by Bellann Summer and Stormy Glenn

Author: Bellann Summer & Stormy Glenn

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Length: 93 pages

Publisher: Siren/Bookstrand Publishing (April 26, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

Blurb: They know a thousand ways to kill…and zero ways to love.

Baxter is the Battle Bunny everyone stares at. He’s pierced in places that make life interesting, as snarky as they come, and so lonely his heart screams out for someone to simply acknowledge his existence. When someone does, Bax feels as though he has to fight everyone, including his own brothers, to keep the man who speaks to his soul.

Dominic O’Leary had been the alpha of his pack when they were betrayed and turned over to the scientists. By the time he escaped, his pack was decimated and Dominic and his brother had been changed forever. Discovering his mate among a family of bunnies should have brought him great joy, but the scientists took that from him with their sick experiments.

When Baxter’s family prevents him from claiming his mate, Dominic must use an ancient and seldom used law to force them to allow him time with Bax. But an interfering family seems to be the least of their problems. People are getting sick, the baby won’t stop crying, and the vampire who owns their abandoned mansion is back. No one ever said life was easy, but does it have to be so damn hard?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: In paranormal romances one expects wolves and big felines being the heroes of the world. But in this new series, it is the bunnies that are the true heroes. This series is a new fresh idea that is positively amazing. I love the serious tone that it has mixed in with quite a bit of humor in it. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

When I saw the series title I knew it was going to be one that I needed to read. It was topped off with the names of the authors. Bellann and Stormy are two of my favorite authors and are usually ones that I will be buying automatically so I knew that this was going to be a top story for me. I was not disappointed at all.

I think I was let down, I didn’t hear where Baxter’s piercings were. Baxter is a Battle Bunnie and loved his family, even if they were all nuts. He just wants someone who is just his, and he has found it in a powerful alpha wolf. Too bad when they were being experimented on, Dominic and his brother have no scent. So of course intercepts Clay, forbidding the mating. Let’s just say he is about to get the surprise of his life. Dom and Baxter will be together no matter what it cost.

This story rocked and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next story. I had so much fun reading this and would definitely recommend it.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥3 Hearts

Blurb: For these two, having an arranged marriage could either be a catastrophe, or the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

Cam has always known that his mating would be arranged by his father, and his best hope is for a mate who respects him and could eventually be friends with him. He has no choice in the matter and is resigned to the worst-case scenario of a mate he’ll end up hating for the rest of his life.

His biggest worry is that he’ll no longer be able to keep his best friend in his life. If his mate says he can’t have friends, that will be the end of it and he won’t be able to say a thing against that decision. It’s his worst fear, and he can’t keep his tears at bay even during his own mating ceremony as he feels like he’s losing the only real friend he’s ever had.

Jenner isn’t entirely sure why his new mate looks like he’s going to his death. He wants to be friends with Cam, and his traditions make it hard to get close to him. His father wanted to make sure he fell in love before he was thirty and thought mating him to someone would be the best way to get that accomplished.

Jenner is looking forward to getting to know his new mate, if only Cam will let that happen. The little glimpses he’s had of the real Cam tell him he’s been mated to a feisty man who won’t back down, and Jenner wants more time with that side of him and a lot less with the one who only wants to do what’s expected of them and looks absolutely miserable all the time.

Having an arranged mating isn’t ideal, but for Cam and Jenner it might be the best thing for them both.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Cam, a fox shifter doesn’t want an arranged marriage but knows he has no choice. His biggest fear is that he won’t be able to see Leo again afterwards. Jenner is intrigued by his mate and wants to get to know both sides of him. But with misunderstanding after misunderstanding he is finding that difficult to do.

While I liked most of the characters in this book I felt it weird that it was written with an arranged marriage. Who does that these days? I felt so bad for Cam having his choices and freedom decided by someone else.

Well written with a lot of drama and some suspense made this book and o.k. read.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Once again, Toni Griffin rocks my world. This series should be read in sequence, it’s just better that way.

This story about broke my heart with Jason’s story. He is so gentle, kind and a heart made of gold, and he just grabs your heartstrings. You can’t help but fall in love with him. And his mate Alex feels the same way. Alex is the alpha of his pack and treats his mate as if he is the most special person in his life, which of course he is as he should be. You can’t help but fall in love with him and the way he is so tender with Jason.

At first when I heard Dominic start speaking I wasn’t for sure if I was going to like it. Then I remembered that this story takes place somewhere else so his accent made sense. I enjoyed the different voices he gave each character and even made mom sound like a mom. I had fun listening to his voice for each one and just wished I could have listened to him for a bit longer.

This audio book is so full of love, pain, and sadness, but the love will win all the way around. The sex is so passionate and truly hot. Even with the danger out there waiting for Jason, you can tell the Alex will protect him with his life. It will keep you spellbound and on the edge of your seat.

I am so glad to have found this series as it shows me that true love will heal all wounds. I am very glad to have this book in my library and cannot wait to add the others to it.
