Review @ChrstineWarren - Baby, I'm Howling for You by Christine Warren (Alphaville #1)

Baby, I'm Howling for You
Alphaville #1
by Christine Warren

Goodreads blurb:  WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

About the Author:  CHRISTINE WARREN is the bestselling author of The Others series, including Wolf at the Door, Big Bad Wolf, Born to Be Wild, Prince Charming Doesn’t Live Here, and Black Magic Woman. Born and raised in coastal New England, she now lives as a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. (She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her phobia of being landlocked). When not writing, she enjoys horseback riding, playing with her pets, identifying dogs from photos of their underbellies, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I usually buy Christine Warren’s books in paperback!!

The cover is stunning with those gorgeous blue eyes!

This is the first book in the Alphaville series, but there is also a prequel out.  This is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  These two books can be read in any order.  This is a novel length book.

Christine Warren is one of my favorite authors because she always creates wonderful and vivid worlds that I love feeling and seeing as I read them.  The stories always come alive, and they always have plenty of action and goings-on to keep you engage in the story.

This is Renny and Mick’s story.  Renny has a stalker with friends.  She is running towards Alpha because she thought there she would be safe and that the people living there would also be safe because they are all shifters.  Mick is a loner who has a tragic past, and he is not sure how he survived.  Tons of action, and you never know what is going to happen next.  Their story was exciting, and I didn’t want to put it down.

I highly recommend to shifter fans who love action packed mixed shifter worlds especially if you already love Christine Warren’s work!  I can’t wait to see what happens next in Alpha!

Review @njwaltersauthor - Drakon's Past by N.J. Walters (Blood of the Drakon #4)

Drakon’s Past
Blood of the Drakon #4
by N.J. Walters

Goodreads blurb:  Constance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.

Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers. The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.

About the Author:  Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same.

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I loved this book, so I bought it and the rest of the series to read!

The cover is beautiful and my favorite kind because it has both gorgeous beasts on the cover!

This is the 4th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  You can read the books out of order, but I suspect that if you read them in order that you will enjoy the series much more.  I need to go back and read books 1 & 2.

I really love this world that N.J. has created.  It is always action packed and full of twists and turns.  This is Nic’s story.  Wow, he has some emotional baggage that he has been carrying around for a long time that makes it hard to trust anyone but his brothers.  Constance’s business is antiques, and she finds something special at an estate sale that turns her life upside down.  I love her fierce loyalty.  She will do anything for her sister.  Both Constance and Nic get into trouble both physically and emotionally.  This was a fabulous story that I couldn’t put down.  She threw me for a loop with her plot twist in the end, and I love when you don’t see it coming.

N.J.’s writing is easy to be pulled into, and you won’t want to put it down.  I need to read more of her books because I have a feeling that I will like them.  I do own the Hades Carnival series, so I will have to read that series soon.

I highly recommend this book to any dragon lover (drakon if I want to be precise) who like action packed stories full of treachery, bad guys, and romance.  I can’t wait to read more of N.J.’s work!

Review @deborahblake - Wickedly Spirited by Deborah Blake (Baba Yaga #3.5)

Wickedly Spirited
Baba Yaga #3.5
by Deborah Blake

Goodreads blurb:  Jazz, the powerfully magical teen first introduced in Wickedly Powerful, is now being trained as a Baba Yaga—and she’s determined to free the Broken Riders herself.

Jazz had a rough life before meeting her guardian, and she knows she’s lucky that Bella is training her to be a Baba Yaga. But the gifted young witch is frustrated by the slow pace of her lessons. Jazz knows she’s capable of even greater magic, and she wants nothing more than to find a spell that will give the Riders back the immortality they lost.

With the reluctant assistance of Bella’s dragon-turned-cat Koshka, Jazz travels to the Otherworld to get the necessary ingredients to perform the spell. A willful young witch, dangerous magic, and one powerful wish—what could possibly go wrong?

About the Author:  Deborah is the author of nine non-fiction books on modern witchcraft from Llewellyn and the Baba Yaga series from Berkley Romance, including Wickedly Magical (novella), Wickedly Dangerous, and Wickedly Wonderful, Wickedly Ever After (novella), and Wickedly Powerful, plus an urban fantasy, Veiled Magic.

Deborah lives in a 130 year old farmhouse in upstate NY with three cats, and runs an artists' cooperative shop when she's not writing. She believes in magic, laughter, chocolate, and wine. The order may change depending on the day.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I bought my own e-copy as well as the rest of the series in paperback. 

The cover is intriguing and magical!  And guess what, it is what attracted my attention to the book!

This is my first time reading anything by Deborah Blake, and I definitely liked it!  This is a novella in the Baba Yaga series, and I’m guessing this falls after book 3 due to its number.  I read this book with no prior knowledge, and I’m guessing I would have loved this book more if I read the books in order.  I think it would have made it more together than just this book.  I believe it so much that I have ordered the series to read as well as the Riders books too.

I really like Jazz and her spirit.  Kids will always pull at my heart especially Jazz’s story.  I love that Bella has taken her in and made her part of her family.  Jazz takes family serious, and she feels compelled to do something to help the Riders even though others have said it isn’t possible.  Things happen, but I refuse to ruin the story for you.  You must read it to find out.

I love this world that Deborah has created, and I want to visit and learn more about it, the Baba Yagas, magic, Otherworld, dragons, and the Riders.  I love the emotions and attitudes that she writes into her characters.  I can’t wait to read more!

I recommend to paranormal fans who love magic, witches, spell trouble, and dragon-cats!

Review @PRosemoor - Animal Instincts by Patricia Rosemoor (Kindred Souls #1)

Animal Instincts
Kindred Souls #1
by Patricia Rosemoor

Goodreads blurb:  Luc Lazare doesn’t need more complications in his life.  And Skye Cross, the intriguing woman able to communicate with animals, is the last thing he wants.  Too bad his body disagrees. But he’s trying to save his shapeshifting family from being forced into the battle arena, and that means protecting the shifters responsible for stealing Skye's brother’s soul. Even as she demands his help, he’ll have to resist the pull of temptation. Skye’s most recent animal rescue assignment involves saving canines involved in primal battles.  Her investigation leads her to Luc, a man whose powers unsettle but intrigue her. Luc lures her into a dark encounter, and realizes that the animals engaging in these battles aren’t dogs at all, they’re wild predators. Skye finds herself caught in a dangerous world she never knew existed while relying on a man she couldn’t possibly trust. In a world where everything--and nothing--is as it seems, can Luc and Skye find a way to overcome the odds that are destined to keep them apart?

About the Author:  With 96 novels and more than seven million books in print, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Patricia Rosemoor is fascinated with "dangerous love" – combining romance with danger. She has written various forms of romantic and paranormal romantic thrillers, bringing a different mix of thrills and chills to her stories.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is awesome!  I love when both forms are on the cover.

This is my first time reading Patricia’s work, and it is also the first book in a new series!  This book is for adults only due to the violence and adult topics.  This book does have gambling and betting on illegal animal fights for any who may be sensitive to these topics.

This is a very unique shifter world.  I have never read anything quite like this where shifters are demon like and their purpose is to corrupt humanity.  Luc is half human and half Kindred.  This has caused him to feel like he doesn’t belong in either world and is torn between the two.  He knows that the people he cares about will always be targets.  Skye can unique abilities, and her world is turned upside-down.  She learns new things about herself and her family along the way.  Skye and Luc come from opposite worlds, and they are tested.

I enjoyed this unique story and perspective, and I want to see where this world goes next.  I hope I get to see more of Skye and Luc!

I recommend to shifter fans who like unique and completely different worlds and who do not get hung up on what good and evil is!

Review @SableSylvan - The Rapunzel Rodeo by Sable Sylvan (Fated Mate Speed Date #2)

The Rapunzel Rodeo
 Fated Mate Speed Date #2
by Sable Sylvan

Goodreads blurb:  Curvy seamstress Olivia Larson likes three things: costumes, horses, family. She isn't looking to add anything to that list, especially not three more things in the form of cowboy shifters. The last thing she needs is some werehorses getting in the way of her charity rodeo, but apparently, the trio of Matt, Richard, and Jason is up to that challenge. Fallowedirt isn't a one-horse town anymore. The only question is, will this Rapunzel let down her emotional walls and learn to let down her hair, or will she look her gift horses in the mouth?

Olivia's not looking for love. She's just looking to help raise money for the local library by helping out at the Fallowedirt Rodeo. When the three dominant werestallions she let herself fall for cause a huge mess for her to clean up, she's not about to let herself be fooled twice by her own heart. A leopard can't change its spots, but can these stallion shifters become horses of a different color? She's going to need to see proof that they're not just stuffing horse crap in a Trojan horse…and that's straight from the horse's mouth. Otherwise, how will Olivia know if she's betting on the wrong horses?

You can lead a horse to his fated mate, but you can't make him menage. Matt, Richard, and Jason can't get along during the day at the McCarthy Dude Ranch, where they all work putting their shifts to good use. The last thing they need is another thing to fight over, but Olivia's not just any 'thing': she's a full-bodied, sassy woman with curves that they each think they deserve. The only question is, will these three men stop horsing around, get off their high horses, and finally get down to the business of winning back their mate? Or are they trying to close the stable door after the horses have already bolted?

Love fairy tales and fated mates? Can't get enough of speedy reads and speed dates? Into sassy BBWs learning to love and the hot-blooded wild shifter heroes begging to be tamed? Not afraid of a good-old-fashioned happy ending (no cliffhangers allowed) for a three-on-one menage a trois-plus-one? And most importantly, do you think that grandmas and pies can save the frikkin' world?

Then check out "The Rapunzel Rodeo", and look for the rest of the books in the "Fated Mate Speed Date" reverse harem romance series on Amazon, available via the Kindle Unlimited program! This series has elements of romantic comedy, Western romance, and of course, shifter-focused paranormal romances between curvy BBWs and a menagerie of different alpha male shifters.

About the Author:  The only thing I love more than reading hot paranormal romances is writing down my fantasies and sharing them with readers like you. My heroes are strong alpha male bear shifters who can be grizzly and gruff at times...but when it comes to their fated mates, they're absolute teddy bears. My curvy heroines are strong, sassy women, which is why the werebear men who love them will do anything for their love.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!! And I bought my own copy already, and I own most of Sable’s books!

The cover is awesome!  Love it, and those boys are beautiful!

This is the 2nd book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and ménage.  It is not necessary to read the books in order, but I would miss any if you love Sable’s work!

This book is similar to the first that the leading lady Olivia is friends with the Quincy girls, and Cayenne is her best friend.  She also has 3 fated mates, and trouble ensues.  It was a great story that made me happy to read her HEA.  I don’t want to give anything away, but if you loved the first book, you will love this one!  Sable has created a great world in Farrowedirt, and I love getting updates on the Quincy girls as well as the shenanigans that  Grandma Quiggly and Grandpa Scoville get into.  I can’t wait to read the next story!

I highly recommend to shifter fans who love all types of shifters especially if you are a fan of ménage and HEA endings!!!

Review @CandaceBlevins - Bash: Volume 1 by Candace Blevins (Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club #3)

Volume 1
Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club #3
by Candace Blevins

Goodreads blurb:  What do you get when you mix a bad-ass werewolf biker with a beautiful she-wolf who grew up as the MC President’s daughter?


Book one of the Bash trilogy…

Angelica was raised not only as a biker’s daughter, but as Bud’s daughter — the president of the Atlanta RTMC, which meant she also had dozens of ‘uncles’ who made sure she was safe, happy, loved, secure.

Needless to say, her virginity was still solidly intact when she left for college.

She goes to school up north, where no one knows she’s a biker’s daughter at heart, and thoroughly enjoys her time as a civilian. She gets rid of her pesky virginity right away, but is mostly a good girl while she buckles down to get her degree, staying at school even during the summers to take as many classes as she can fit in.

She’s a different person when she comes home with her Master’s degree, and in spite of her intention to remain a civilian, some of the bikers don’t seem so much like uncles, anymore.

Warning: Lots of hot sex, a touch of BDSM, and an abundance of bad-ass werewolf bikers who are used to getting their way.

This is book one of a three book story. There’s a tiny cliffhanger at the end.

About the Author:  Candace Blevins has published more than thirty books. She lives with her husband of 19 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving young teens all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming. The family’s beloved, goofy, retired racing greyhound is usually at her side as she writes, quietly keeping her company.

Candace writes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary BDSM Romance, and a kick-ass Motorcycle Club series.

Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, and three different species of vampires exist, as well as a variety of other mythological beings.

Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human books, and gives some secondary characters their happily ever after. Her three paranormal series are written so you can read one series, or all three, should you prefer only a particular genre.

Her Safeword Series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different take on the lifestyle.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a copy of this book from either a giveaway or through the newsletter, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  After reading, I did buy the first 2 books in the series and the vol 2 and 3 of this trilogy, so I can read them!

The cover looks dangerous and intriguing all at once.

This is my first time reading Candace Blevins, and this is the first book in Bash’s trilogy but is the 3rd book in this series.  This book is for adults only because of the steamy content and violence. 

Wow, this book took me by surprise!  The characters in this book that are a gang basically, and I shouldn’t like them, but I do!!  This book was a rollercoaster of action, drama, and more.  I can’t figure out how to put words together to describe this book because I just won’t get it right.  I like Bash, but he is definitely trouble.  This book is like driving by an accident and being unable to look away because it has your attention riveted.  It does end in a cliff hangery sort of way, so you should be aware of that, but all of the books are already out.

I recommend to werewolf fans who want something out of the norm that is more dangerous and risqué with things that are described!  I definitely want to check out more of Candace’s stories!

Review @AuthorMFox - Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings by Many Fabulous Authors

Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings

Goodreads blurb:  Indulge in a darkly decadent and sinfully sensual world.

A world where vampires are real, rich and hungry, a world where Blood Courtesans satisfy all their needs.

Come, let fangs slip into your throat and awaken you to a whole new life.

A boxed set of BRAND NEW stories in this popular series.

Warning: This isn't your momma's vampire romance. It's not Twilight or the Shade, either. It's Blood Courtesans: Luxury, fast cars, adventure, whirlwind romance and cold, hard fangs. Got blood?

REVEALED by Michelle Fox:  My target is a vampire with a name fit for a Greek God--Zopyros Persopoulos--and he looks the part too. He runs Datagenex and it's his DNA database that will reveal why my blood kills vampires. I just need to get him alone and not fall into that smoldering gaze of his that makes me feel like I'm on fire.

EXPOSED by Gwen Knight: Asher promises that he can help me bring justice to those responsible for my sister's murder. But in exchange, I need to become his courtesan.

COMPELLED by Rebecca Rivard: He's a vampire. She's a slayer. They can't fall in love, can they?

SACRIFICE by Kristen Strassel: Pierce ripped Olivia out of the arms of the coven's biggest enemy. To earn his trust, the newly-turned vampire must serve as his blood courtesan.

ETERNITY by Tami Lund: I was a Blood Courtesans, until my vampire ended our contract and swore to stay away from me forever more. Now I'm in trouble and he's the only one who can help, but will he come? 

CONDEMNED by Julia Mills: It's now or never. My brother is sentenced to die for a crime he didn't commit. His only hope is an attorney who's also a vampire, but his price is nonnegotiable -my body and my blood. This is about survival, not love or happily ever after - or is it? 

CONCEALED by Rosalie Redd: I'm a new blood courtesan and my first client is a vampire other courtesans avoid. Although Gavin Morris sends a chill down my spine, my shivers aren't from fear...

RELIC  by TL Reeve I never thought I would need a vampire. But, after my mom steals a priceless artifact from the New Orleans Coven, I become a pawn in their dirty game. In order to survive, I have to do the one thing I promised myself I'd never do.

EMBOLDENED by Ever Coming: Jasper came roaring into my life almost two decades ago when he rescued me from certain death. Now it's my turn to save the sexy vampire. Only problem is, he doesn't want my help.

UNDONE by Skye Jones: I hate rich people and vampires, so when I meet a drop dead handsome man that is both, I want to despise him. But I need his help and put my principals to one side. What starts out as a way of securing my freedom becomes so much more, and soon I'm in too deep mind, body, and soul.

REFRAIN by Susan Griscom: My first Blood Courtesan client turns out to be the man of my dreams, the sexy-as-sin vampire rock star I've lusted after since I was a teen, but he wants nothing to do with me or what I have to offer, but making him accept me may be the only way for me to stay alive.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have already bought my own copy too!

This boxed set contains 11 stories surrounding vampires and their courtesans whether they are human or vampire.  I am still working on reading the set but I have read the first 6 stories at this point.  I have yet to read a story I didn’t like, and really I have loved all but one so far because it was a bit darker and grittier involving manipulation and rape of body and mind.  Awesome story, but it would have been 4 Unicorns.  My top 3 stories so far are Revealed, Exposed, and Compelled.  I was pulled into those stories from the beginning, and I couldn’t stop until I knew what happened.

Each story is unique and while the world is similar, you will notice differences as you read.  Boxed sets are a great way to read many authors, and you may find an author you love!  I also really love that it is an HEA for each story at least in my opinion where they find their mates.  I don’t want to give away details of the stories, but you can read the blurb for a little about each story.

I highly recommend this set to any vamp lovers who want unique stories from many awesome authors!  I’m off to read the Concealed, and who knows my top 3 stories may change by the time I have finished!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Leader Lion by Zoe Chant (Protection, Inc #5)

Leader Lion
Protection, Inc #5
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A tough lion shifter bodyguard hiding a lonely heart + the determined stage manager he'll protect with his life + deadly danger behind the scenes = one sizzling thrill ride of a romance!

Strong-willed stage manager Grace Chang once longed for success and love. Then she got burned by a charming cheater. Okay, forget love. Now she's aiming for success with her new job on Mars: The Musical, but dangerous sabotage threatens to make it Mars: The Megaflop. As for men, she's done with them. Especially charming ones. Done!

Charming lion shifter bodyguard Rafa Flores lets his teammates believe he's a carefree ladies' man. But he secretly spends his nights alone, longing for the mate he's never found--until he gets a job guarding Grace. Now he must solve a mystery, court his true love, protect her from a deadly assassin, and explain that he's a shifter without sending her running for the hills. Piece of cake!

One alpha lion shifter and one strong woman are about to face the toughest challenge of their lives. No, not the assassin. Love.

Featuring hot romance, exciting action, a team like a family, laugh-out-loud humor, and a tray of unusual cupcakes, Leader Lion is a must-read for fans of T. S. Joyce and Terry Bolryder. All the books in the Protection, Inc. series are standalone romances and can be read in any order. No cliffhangers!

If you love action-packed paranormal romance with a funny twist, one-click on Leader Lion today!

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I bought this book because I collect all of Zoe’s books when I can!
The cover is very nice, and my favorite kind because both beasts are on the cover and beautiful!

This is the 5th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  While it is not mandatory to read the series in order, I highly recommend doing so because you know the characters, their camaraderie, and stories, and it makes it so much better when you love all the characters!

This is Rafa’s story, and we go to the theater!  His friend asks him to protect her and look into the accidents at work.  Of course, there is a mystery a foot, and he meets his mate.  He makes some big blunders with his human mate along the way, so there is drama to go with the danger and treachery.  I really like Grace because she is amazing at her job, but she has had trouble with the men she has dated and now has trust issues.  Rafa and Grace’s story is another awesome read where Zoe does a great job with her mix of mystery, intrigue, and danger to balance the romance and make for a fantastic story!

I highly recommend to any shifter fan especially if you love this series, Zoe Chant’s work, and HEAs that are awesome!  I can’t wait to see what Zoe comes up with next!
