On spring break just before graduation, werewolf shifter Jane  does something completely out of character for an Alpha’s daughter. She has a one night stand with a stranger. The consequences of the one night changes all her plans to move away from the pack and live the rest of her life in the human world. 

Heading home with her tail between her legs turns out to be a lot worse than she thought. 

Ever since his one night stand months earlier Alpha werewolf Reese has had his hands full with his pack and issues with the neighboring Alpha. Even so he can’t stop thinking about his night with one she-wolf.

It isn’t the most opportune time when the two meet again. Will these two get their happy ever after. 

This is a very quick Howls series romance that I read in one foggy Saturday afternoon. Still there was a lot packed into a short novel. Celia Kyle has become one of my favorite authors. Her heroines are always a little sassy and the hero are tough and sexy. I couple of times we saw Jane’s own alpha come out and play, but I would have liked to have seen a her enact a little female alpha justice toward the end, but all and all it was a good quick read. 

She’s pregnant and he’s determined to have her under his roof and in his matter the cost!

Reese can’t get the delectable she-wolf Jane Coleman out of his mind. They shared one passionate night on a Ft. Lauderdale beach and she disappeared by morning. He should forget her, but his wolf won’t let him dismiss the memories of her silken skin, lush curves, and seductive smile.

Even as he fights to keep his lands out of the hands of a rival pack, he can’t suppress his constant craving for the female werewolf. The last place he expects to find the alluring stranger is at the side of his sworn enemy—her father.

He should crush her father and walk away, but one sniff changes Reese’s plans. Jane is pregnant with his pup and he will have them both!

This book is part of the Howls Romance line. Classic romance with a furry twist...

Being in the fashion industry is a tough business, but when she wants to become a trend setter, Natale Durante may have taken on more than she thought she was getting into. After receiving threatening letters her father hires a security firm to keep her safe, but one look at Salvatore Orsino and Natale is sure she isn’t going to be safe at all and not because the big gorgeous man can’t keep her safe. The question is is her heart safe?

The bear in Salvatore know right away that Natale is his, but can he keep her alive to claim her?

So far the many authors that have contributed to the Howls romance series has not disappointed yet and this book is no exception. This book contains hot wild love scenes, a little bit of mystery, danger and intrigue and one (or three) growly bears. Plus I love the fresh face on the cover of this book. He perfect for the part of Salvatore. 

The head of Orsino Security was hired to protect her for a week. Instead, his bear wants to claim her forever.

It takes one look for bear shifter Salvatore Orsino to know that Natale Durante isn't just his client… she’s his mate. His first instinct is to lay Natale’s curvaceous body over his shoulder, find a den, and claim her with his bite. But, this beautiful head-strong woman only grudgingly endures his protection even as she welcomes him in her bed. He’ll have to set aside his bear’s need to mark her until he’s eliminated the threat to her life. Once she’s safe, he’ll turn all his energies convincing her that he isn’t after a short-term dalliance, he wants her, with him… forever.

Natale Durante knows that Durante Fashion House is on its last legs. Her new line, designed for women of every size and shape, is her last attempt at saving her family’s legacy. But there are those in high fashion who prefer that things stay the same—curves belong on the road, not the runway. When complaints and hate mail escalate to threats of bodily harm, her father hires a bodyguard—Salvatore Orsino. He’s over six feet of deliciously seductive muscular male and a distraction she can’t afford. One look from him and she wants her infuriatingly persistent protector to rip off her clothes with his teeth, or she might do the same to him.

Can Salvatore eliminate the threats to Natale or will he lose her before he has a chance to claim her?

Romance Book Review: Leilani Love's Warrick's Hope

Title: Warrick’s Hope
Series Connection: The Dragon Ruby Series
Author: Leilani Love
Genre: Romance, Erotic Romance, Shifter Romance
Publisher: Leilani Love

For 40 years alpha wolf shifter, Warrick, experienced pure torture at the hands of his twin brother to keep his mate alive. Only meeting Hope a couple of times while she was still a child, Warrick not only lives with the torture, but with the knowledge that Hope hates him because she thinks he killed her parents. 

When Hope finally learns the truth, she and her brother help save Warrick. Now he and Hape work to help their pack heal, but still worry that at any time, Warrick's brother can come and take everything they are building away from them. 

I've only had the opportunity to read this one book in the series, and even though I'm coming in at book 4, I really like it so far. Both Warrick Hope are good strong characters. I love their love story. The author has written an interesting background story featuring wolves, dragons and vampires. Even though I've started at book 4, it probably would be better to start at book one. 

No amount of magic can separate those the Fates have bond together.

Alpha shifter Warrick has spent the last forty years in captivity, tortured and replaced by his sadistic twin brother, Gabriel. His only happiness comes by knowing that his sacrifice has protected his mate, Hope. 

Hope has spent years believing that her mate betrayed her and killed her parents. But when she and her brother, Damien, attempt to defeat Warrick and take back their pack, Hope is surprised to find Warrick broken, beaten, and clinging to life. Her mate hasn’t betrayed her, after all. 

Now the two long-lost mates have a chance to rebuild their packs - and their relationship. But Hope struggles to overcome years of misplaced anger and Warrick is crippled by guilt. 

And Gabriel is still out there, waiting for a chance to strike again.

Jessy Sarli gets a strange call from her sister and soon realizes that the other woman has disappeared, leaving Jessy so many questions. The biggest one is did Jessy give birth and if so what's happened to the child. 

As Jessy searches the country for her sister and possible niece, Sheriff Colt Hennessy finds a surprise bundle on the front steps of his office with a note asking him to take care of the little girl. Not wanting to leave the care of the child to social services, Colt arranges to take the child in. He suspects the child is like him and he knows he can better protect the child if he has her. 

It takes some time for Jessy to finally find at least her sister's child, but how is she going to explain to the man who has the child that only her instinct tells her that the little girl who Colt has been raising all this time might be part of Jessy's family. 

Very sweet story of a kind hearted cop and his love for a child. So sweet that the circumstances to how the hero get the child in the first place seems a little out of place for the rest of the book. Otherwise a good short story and quick read.  

A bear must protect, always.

Colt Hennessy is a werebear on a mission. The small town sheriff finds himself caring for a baby left at his doorstep and no sooner than it happens does he discover that this little bundle of joy was exactly what he'd been missing. With danger swirling around him and dark forces out to harm the child, he does the only thing he can - goes to search for a safer place. It's there where his, and baby Lana's life changes forever.

Jessy Sarli has lost what little she had left - her sister. Desperately searching for her, the fearless woman left everything else behind, only to be led around on a string of confusion. When she finally finds her niece in the protective care of a man who takes her breath away, she's not sure what to make of it. But she does know what her heart is telling her. That this man is the only one who can help her, and Lana.

When the cause for Jessy's sister's disappearance comes out, she will need all the help she can get. And not only her and the baby, but her heart as well...

Big Bear Daddy is a standalone werebear surprise baby romance novella that has a guaranteed HEA; no cheating. If you like shifters that stay true to their mission and the curvy, confident woman who love them, then this is just the book for you!

Romance Book Review: Bring on the Heat by G.A. Aiken

Title: Bring on the Heat
Series Connect: Dragon Kin
Author G.A. Aiken
ISBN-13: 978-1420131635
Genre: Dragon Shifter Romance, Paranormal Romance, Action/Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Zebra

Purchase Link: Amazon

This is book 9 of the Dragon Kin series and as with all books by this author, I just loved it. I think over the past few years G.A. Aiken (aka Shelly Laurenston) has really developed as a writer and while some might think by book 9 the series would get boring or the storyline will lose it's spark, I think she has enough different characters, both villains and good guys in the stories she's developed that she can keep going and not run out of room to grow. 

While many series stick with the same male/female lead throughout the story in a series introducing previous characters liberally, Aiken splits between storylines and keeps the action flowing. The only problem I see is that in this instance she didn't have enough time to develop the love story between Branwen and Aiden. I would of liked to have seen a little more time with those characters to see their love grow. 

As always I was excited to see the rest of the gang. Bringing back Annwyl the Bloody as her usual crazy self with her mad fighting skills, the Daughters of the Steppes who really add the comic relief through most of the story and seeing Branwen's cousin Rhona the Fearless and her trunk load of handy weapons (especially funny since Brannie decided to check out the lot completely naked while thinking nothing of it).The names of the characters are entertaining.

If you like a lot of action, fighting and loving this story is for you. It isn't necessary to read the previous books, but they are that good you won't want to miss out. The author doesn't write them in any particular order so you can start with this one and work your way backward if you like. 

(I received a free copy of this book in order to write a review that was based on my own true opinion.)

I, Aidan the Divine, am, well divine. My name was given to me by the Dragon Queen herself! I’m a delight! Cheerful. Charming. And a mighty warrior who is extremely handsome with a very large and well-hidden hoard of gold. I am also royal born, despite the fact that most in my family are horrendous beings that don’t deserve to live. And yet, Branwen the Awful—a low-born, no less—either tells me to shut up or, worse, ignores me completely.

I’ll admit, I ignore Aidan the Divine because it annoys him. A lot. But, we have so much to do right now, I can’t worry about why he keeps staring at me, or why he always sits so close, or why he keeps looking at me like he’s thinking about kissing me. We have our nations to save and no time for such bloody foolishness…no matter how good Aidan looks or how long his spiked tail is. Because if we’re going to win this war before it destroys everything we love, we’ll have to face our enemies together, side by side and without distractions. But if we make it out alive, who knows what the future will hold…

Zoe decides it is time to take control of her life and make some changes. Moving from her home town, on her way to her new home she stops to camp in the mountains and meets a handsome ranger. When trouble finds her, it is the handsome ranger that comes to her aid, but there is more to the ranger than meets the eye. 

Damien and his crew stand between people and the Shadowland creatures. When he is out on patrol, Damien meets Zoe and immediately his bear realizes that Zoe is his mate, but Damien doesn't think that having a mate is for him. He is dedicated to his job and as alpha of his crew he feels he should have no distractions. 

As the two spend more time together and become closer, but danger is just around the corner and Damien wants nothing but to protect Zoe. Is the best way to protect her to send her away from the forest and Shadowland dwellers?

Good story, but the book does have several type-os that might in the way for some readers. 

Zoe Fox is leaving her past life forever. Tired of the lousy workplace and even lousier love life, she’s ready to start over out west. But when her sudden decision to visit a National Park makes her take the wrong turn, she finds herself chased by a ferocious monster. Luckily, a big, sexy-as-hell, muscle bound ranger appears out of nowhere to save her. Taking her to his cabin while she heals, she might learn that loving a shifter could be more dangerous than any monster she could find.

Damien Black knows only duty. He’s devoted to lead the White Paw bears against the Shadowlands, an unnatural threat that could leech the life out of the world. But when the beautiful, fragile human, Zoe Fox is chased by a shadow wildcat, his protective instincts flare up like never before. 

Even worse, although being with Zoe makes him stronger than ever, his shifter senses are starting to fail him. That should be reason enough to make her go away. But why can’t he? And why is his bear roaring inside, calling her his mate?

This standalone novel has a HEA and absolutely NO cheating and NO cliffhangers.

Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he’s going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he’ll have to embrace the darkness he’s fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there’s no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.

But first he has to convince Abby that there’s no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.

I'm a big fan of Celia Kyle. She has a fantastic ability to make you laugh out loud while you're reading. Many of her stories are quick reads. "Wolf's Mate" is a little different from her previous books. This one is a little more serious in nature and a little longer than some of her others. 

In Wolf's Mate the two lead characters are a little more complicated. The hero, Declan, knows that he isn't a good person and can't possibly be good enough for innocent Abby. 

Abby witnessed her parents being killed by a group that kills shifters when she was a child. When she grew up she decides to live a quiet life as an accountant. Two couldn't be more different. 

I also think she spent a little more time world building on her subject, which leaves the reader a chance to get into the characters and the story behind the characters relationship.

This is a continual series, although you could stop with just this one story, but you'll be looking forward to reading more in the end.

Wake a Sleeping Tiger

Author: Lora Leigh
ISBN: 978-0425265475
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Berkley

Purchase link: Amazon

This is the 31st book in the Breed series. For the past several books the Breed series have been concentrating on saving Jonas Wyatt’s baby daughter from the serum that the evil Boardmore gave her. During the series we learn of three young breeds that escape from the labs and are hidden away by the community of Window Rock. 

Judd is a young breed who we learn helps the two young girls escape from the labs they were in. Jonas is anxious to get his hands on the three breeds as is the dreaded Council. And let us not forget the very disturbing Gideon. Gideon has been teaching for the three you breeds for years (or so we think).

Now that we’re read the stories of Honor and Fawn, the two girls everyone has been searching for, as well as found out that Gideon isn’t as crazy as we once thought, it is time to meet Judd. Judd, like the two girls has been hiding in plane sight and his mate has always been close too.

Cullen Maverick is a recessed Bengal breed. As the commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency, many believed he was human, but once Gideon’s identity was revealed so was Judd’s and Cullen came out as the breed he is.

When Cullen first moved to Window Rock he fell in love with a human and married her. Cullen’s wife soon died of cancer, but everyone always assumed that he was heartbroken after losing his mate. Everyone including his wife’s cousin Chelsea Martinez. 

All these years Chelsea has lived knowing that she would never have the man she loved. Cullen had met his mate and he would never be hers, but she could have the career she has always wanted. Unfortunately Cullen was blocking that dream, so it was time for Chelsea to leave. 

It isn’t until Chelsea walks out on him, the Cullen finally realizes he’s waited too long to claim Chelsea and if he doesn’t act quick he could lose her for good. But not everyone wants Chelsea and Cullen to get together. Someone would rather see the two suffer, and Cullen needs to find out who to save Chelsea’s life. 

I love this series and watching Cullen and Chelsea fall in love through all the action and mating heat is well worth this read. However, I was a little distracted through the book by the inconsistency in the story and previous other stories. I even went back to reread previous books because parts of this story really bothered me. If you can get past that this is really a good book, with a surprise ending leaving us ready to check out the next story, which I hoping will be Cassie Sinclair’s story. 

When readers of dark romance and unbridled desire want to be satisfied, they turn to #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and her “powerful and highly erotic” (Fresh Fiction) Breed novels. Now a Breed hides in the world of man—until a woman arouses the amused and wildly carnal animal within...

Once, he was Judd—Bengal Breed and brother to the notorious fugitive Gideon.
After Gideon disappeared, Judd was experimented on until his tortured body knew nothing but agony.

Now he is Cullen Maverick, serving as the commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency in the small community of Window Rock, Arizona. Despite his genetics, Cullen is able to pass as human because his Bengal traits are recessed. He lacks the ability to smell the emotions, bonds and fears that other Breeds take for granted. And he remains tormented that he wasn’t able to mate the woman he loved—at the cost of her life.

He’s no longer a Breed, merely a man. . . or so he thinks. But his tiger is about to be awakened by the one woman destined to be his—Chelsea Martinez. And their world will never be the same...

A MacTire/Silver romance. Ellie MacTire and her sister have had their Inn in Silver Town open for a while now. They have lived with one ghost that so far hasn’t bothered their guests. Until a piano is delivered to the Inn from the Silver brothers. 

Their GreatAunt Matilda always loved the piano, but it isn’t until they get the piano to the Inn that the GreatAunt makes her first appearance. Now Ellie and her sister, which help of the Silver brother, Brett, have to work quickly to see if they can get GreatAunt Matilda on her way. 

The only question is, why after so many years has Matilda decided to make herself know. Is there a mystery to her death or does she just really love her piano and wants to stay with it until eternity. 

In the meanwhile, Brett Silver knows that Ellie is her mate, but he realizes right away that Ellie is going to take a little time to convince. Are they dream mating, or is Ellie just really attracted to Brett. Once a wolf mates, it is for life, so Ellie really wants to be sure. 

Solid story that can be read alone or with other parts of the series, especially A Silver Wolf Christmas (Silver Town Wolf Book 5). I like the ghost story and the briefly added comic relief with the sister’s cousins, who have their own ghost hunting television show. 

Wooing a she-wolf isn't as easy as it looks in this bold paranormal romance from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear

In Silver Town, the secrets run deep...

Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has an ulterior motive when he donates a prized family heirloom to the Silver Town hotel. Ellie MacTire owns the place with her sisters, and he's out to get her attention.

Ellie is even more special than Brett knows. She's a wolf-shifter with a unique ability to commune with the dead. Ellie has been ostracized, so she protects herself and those she loves by revealing nothing-not even when strange and dangerous things begin to happen in Silver Town. And especially not to the devastatingly handsome and generous wolf who's determined to win her over...
