Review @ZoeChantebooks - Tropical Tiger Spy by Zoe Chant (Shifting Sands Resort #1)




Tropical Tiger Spy
Shifting Sands Resort #1
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A unique shifter in search of her past + a tiger shifter spy on an undercover mission + a shifters-only resort with secrets to hide = a dangerous and thrilling romantic adventure

Amber Allen comes to Shifting Sands Resort for a vacation escape and one last fling before she settles down to the boring life she's resigned herself to. She's found too many dead ends to believe that she can find any clues to her mysterious origins at the shifters-only resort, but she can't help hoping. She isn't expecting to meet Tony, a tall, gorgeous tiger shifter who instantly leaves her longing for more.

Tony Lukin is at the all-inclusive, clothing-optional island for one purpose: finding out who or what is behind the sinister disappearances of shifters from the resort over the last several years. He isn't looking for romance or relaxation, and he certainly isn't looking for his mate.

Who's behind the mystery of the vanishing shifters? What's the secret of Amber's past? And can Tony convince Amber that she was meant for him... before someone else snatches her away?

Tropical Tiger Spy is a sizzling hot, standalone tiger shifter romance. No cliffhangers!


About the Author:  Zoe Chant loves writing paranormal romance. Over a cup of tea (or something stronger) she whips up sexy tales of hunky heroes and adventurous heroines to tantalize and satisfy her readers. Sizzling hot romance, no cliffhangers!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

I bought this book about 2 weeks ago.  This is the first book in this series.  It is about 125 pages long, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.

When I first started reading, I wasn’t sure who Tony was investigating.  I really liked Amber and how strong she is.  Tony was an enigma at first.  I wasn’t sure what to think of him.  Amber and Tony worked great together.  Scarlett and the other shifters at Shifting Sands are unusual, and I hope we learn more about them as the series continues.  This book has mysteries and intrigues that ended in the wonderful HEA way that Zoe’s books always end.

I can’t wait to start the next book!  I highly recommend any of Zoe’s book to any shifter lover!

Review @laurendane - Wolf Unbound by Lauren Dane (Cascadia Wolves #4)




Wolf Unbound
Cascadia Wolves #4
by Lauren Dane

Goodreads blurb:  Previously published with a different publisher

The Cascadia Wolves will do anything to protect their own. Tegan Warden knows that better than anyone. The Pack closed ranks around her years ago when her mate died, and much as she appreciates their support, it's time to move on. That means dating—and for Tegan, it also means finding someone who understands her needs in the bedroom.

Finding Ben.

The dominant human may not be a wolf, but he makes Tegan shiver from their first encounter. He knows what she needs and doesn't hesitate to give it to her. What's more, they share a bond beyond sex. It's been years since any man has made her feel so alive, so beautiful and desired.

But there's an enemy working against the Cascadia Wolves, an enemy gathering forces to strike. The looming war is a threat to wolves and humans alike, and if they can't stop it, the love that Tegan and Ben have worked so hard to find may not be enough to protect them from what's coming.


About the Author:  Lauren Dane has been writing stories since she was able to use a pencil, and before that she used to tell them to people. Of course, she still talks nonstop, and through wonderful fate and good fortune, she’s now able to share what she writes with others. It’s a wonderful life!

The basics: Lauren is a mom, a partner, a best friend and a daughter. Living in the rainy but beautiful Pacific Northwest, she spends her late evenings writing like a fiend when she finally wrestles all of her kids to bed.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

New cover matches the style of the rest of the series!

This is the fourth book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and violence.  This book does involve dominant/submissive acts just in case this has an effect of your enjoyment of reading the book.

I did not connect as well with Tegan and Ben though I’m not sure why.  It is a great book with plenty of action.  I like that Tegan is strong, and she has come back from losing a mate.  I have liked Ben in previous books, but in this one, he had several moments where he was just a jerk.  It rubbed me the wrong way.  He did things to redeem himself at times, but it wasn’t enough for me.

I loved Lauren’s writing!  She always has plenty of action, drama, and intrigue to keep you engaged!  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

I recommend this book to shifter fans who enjoy subspace in their reading!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Lion's Mate by Zoe Chant (Rowland Lions #2)




Lion’s Mate
Rowland Lions #2
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A curvy woman who longs for adventure + a daring lion shifter on a dangerous mission + evil experiments in a secret lab = one action-packed romance!

Cassie Shaw spends her days shuffling papers and dreaming of travel, excitement, and romance. She has no idea that her seemingly dull office is a front for something secret and sinister... or that her true love is about to walk in the door.

Billionaire lion shifter Seth Rowland left his business mogul family years ago. Now he travels the world, visiting remote places where he can roam as a lion. But he’s starting to realize that he doesn’t want to be alone forever. When his CEO brother asks him to investigate a dangerous enemy, Seth is more than willing to come back to civilization.

When the gorgeous man shows up at Cassie’s office pretending to be from the IRS, she's eager to help him. But Seth is shocked to realize that Cassie is his fated mate... and she seems to be working for the enemy! Can Seth and Cassie join forces to unravel a web of deadly secrets? And when Seth is imprisoned in a lab that experiments on shifters, can he and Cassie save each other?

Lion’s Hunt is a sizzling hot, standalone BBW lion shifter romance. No cliffhangers!

The cover is another awesome one!  I bought this one on Feb 1st

This is the 2nd book in the Rowland Lions series.  It is for adults only due to the steamy content.  It is not mandatory to read the books in order, but I think you will enjoy this book a lot more if you know the whole back story from book 1 because you will know the characters much better.

As with every book I’ve read of Zoe’s thus far, this is a HEA for Max and Shoshanna.  I love Shoshanna’s strength for all she has had to endure.  She has an awesome heart and courage.  Max is something else with his keep everyone at arm’s length.  I’m glad Shoshanna sets him straight.  This was another book I was happy to read and enjoyed the whole way!

I highly recommend any of Zoe’s book to shifter lovers because you will always find something to enjoy and the perfect mix of action and romance to keep you going!

Review @ChrstineWarren - Hard to Handle by Christine Warren (Gargoyles #5)




Hard to Handle
Gargoyles #5
by Christine Warren

Goodreads blurb:  A SEDUCTION STRONGER THAN STONE 

The only male among four sisters, Michael Drummond is no stranger to women’s strength and formidable will. His Dublin pub, the Skin & Bones, is his refuge, a reassuringly masculine retreat. Until a fierce woman warrior from another realm bursts into his life, bringing with her a battle between good and evil…and an explosive dose of desire.

The first and only of her kind, Ash is a lone female gargoyle, a creature destined to protect mankind from Demons determined to unleash their darkest forces. But her arrival on Earth is more confusing than she expected: her bone-deep instinct to do battle is matched only by her untamed attraction to stubborn, stalwart Drum. If they manage to keep the world safe, can they turn the passion crackling between them into a love that will withstand the test of time?


About the Author:  Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

She enjoys hearing from readers and can be reached via email sent to Christine@christinewarren.net or by postal mail to Christine Warren, PO Box 871900, Vancouver, WA 98687-1900.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is deceiving because you think you are looking at the Guardian, but you are not!  Tricky Tricky!

This is the 5th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  I highly recommend reading the series in order because the characters are much better when you understand them through their own book story :)

This book departs from tradition, and I loved it! I was very confused in the beginning, but I don’t usually read the blurbs because I like to be surprised.  And I was surprised! 

At first I thought Drum was a tool, but he was protective where his family was concerned which I admired.  I think he didn’t realize how much potential he had in the wake of his mom and sisters’ talents and thinking his was nothing of value and only a parlor trick.  I grow fond of him especially his protective streak.  Ash is a typical warrior and also more lost than most Guardians due to the circumstance surrounding her.  She is just as protective as Drum, and it makes for entertainment for sure!  Of course, I really loved when Kylie and Wynn joined with snarky conversations that are most amusing.  I couldn’t put this book down, and I’m sick as a dog right now!

I highly recommend this book and series to all readers to love rock hard men…and woman….get your minds out of the gutters…gargoyles rule!  You definitely want to read if you love Christine’s work too!  I can’t wait to see what Christine sculpts next!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is what grabbed my attention to buy this one!  Zoe has some amazing covers!  But I am biased if they cover has both beautiful beasts on it!

This is the first book in this series, and I already love it!  Seth is intense but easy going.  He is a loner but has no trouble racing back to help family when needed.  Cassie is a workaholic who dreams of travel.  This is another one of Zoe’s fabulous HEAs that makes me happy to read them.  I love imagining everyone having an HEA for themselves.  Zoe always has the perfect mix of action, steam, and intrigue to keep you reading until the end, and then you will want more!

I highly recommend reading this book to all my shifter lovin’ friends especially if big cats are special to your heart!

Review @laurendane - Wolves' Triad by Lauren Dane (Cascadia Wolves #2)




Wolves' Triad
Cascadia Wolves #2
by Lauren Dane

Goodreads blurb:  Previously published under a different title 

The tri-mate bond is a myth 

That's what Tracy Warden has believed all her life. Werewolves have one true mate, someone their wolf bonds to physically, mentally, emotionally. She didn't expect to find her mate so soon, but Nick, second to the Pacific pack's Alpha, is undeniably hers. The scent of him, the irrefutable way their bodies call to each other—it's the beginning of a new life for them both.  

Until Tracy meets Gabe, and everything she thought she knew is turned upside down.  

None of them expected this. It shouldn't be possible. But the bond they share can't be denied—and before long, they don't want to deny it. The triad makes them whole, and two alpha wolves in her bed—in her life—make Tracy wonder how she ever lived without the tri-bond. 

But there's tension in Pacific, tension that goes much deeper than mere pack politics. Gabe, Nick and Tracy will do anything to protect each other, and their new bond is about to be put to the test… 

Watch for more Cascadia Wolves stories coming soon from Lauren Dane and Carina Press!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

New cover that matches the other republished books!  I like the new look!

This book was awesome to read!  This is the 2nd book in the series and is for adults only due to the steamy content.

This series is unique with the Tri-bond concept, but there is something special in this book.  I really like Tracy.  She is strong and fierce and won’t put up with anyone’s garbage.  Tracy is Cade and Lex’s sister, so she is used to dealing with over protective Alphas.  Nick is something else.  I thought I was going to hate him because he was an insensitive jerk, but he got his act together.  I think Gabe helped with that too!

Lauren writes the perfect mix of intrigue, action, and steam.  This series might not be for everyone if you have trouble with the tri-bond concept, but I think this is a personal preference issue because they writing is awesome.  My mom and grandma have read Lauren’s work for years, so I’m a little slow and have to catch up.

I highly recommend this book and series to all the wolf shifter lovin’ fans especially if you are already acquainted with Lauren’s writing and love it!  I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Rancher Lion by Zoe Chant (Cedar Hill Lions #3)




Rancher Lion
Cedar Hill Lions #3
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  An independent BBW on the run + a sexy protective lion shifter + a pack of deadly enemies = one action-packed romance that will leave you breathless!

Curvy Sasha Stevenson grew up in the backwoods, so she ought to know trouble when she sees it. She should have known better than to be fooled by a man like her ex-boyfriend, who turned out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing – literally. Now she's on the run from him and the rest of his pack of shifter bikers. Out of time and out of options, Sasha has no choice but to take refuge in an old cabin, and hope that the owner doesn't mind...

Lion shifter Joe Whittaker will be the alpha of his pride someday, but for now, he's happy with his quiet life working on his father's ranch. There's only one thing missing: his fated mate. But when he investigates why his old hunting cabin has an uninvited guest, he doesn't expect the smoking hot woman inside to be the one he's been dreaming of...

Joe and Sasha may have found each other, but there's just one problem: she's terrified of shifters. How can Joe share his secret with her – especially when her ruthless ex and his crew will stop at nothing to get her back? Can Joe keep Sasha safe and win her heart?

Rancher Lion is a sizzling hot, standalone BBW lion shifter romance, third in the Cedar Hill Lions series. No cliffhangers!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is beautiful!  Zoe really does have some awesome covers, but I tend to be partial to have both beasts on the cover!  I bought this in December!

As always, Zoe does a fantastic job delivering a story that just made me feel good reading it!  I always feel happier at the end of her books especially with her HEA endings.

Joe is quiet but sweet.  He is easy to love as a character.  I love how caring he is with Sasha.  Sasha is a fighter, and I love how she doesn’t give up. 

I highly recommend Zoe’s book to any shifter lover!  I am happy to read any of her books!  I loved this story, and wonder if there will be a story for little brother next!
