Waking the Bear (Broken Chains #1) by Kerry Adrienne

Waking the Bear by Kerry Adrienne will be available August 2016 from Carina Press.

Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.

Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

Book one of the Shifter Wars series

Previously published, newly revised by author

My review:
Falling in love during a war is risky. Falling in love with a human can be fatal. Griff is a big ol hunky bear shifter who is determined not to commit to anything until this ware with the mountain lions is resolved. Fate throws him a hand grenade in the form of a human girl trying to figure out where she wants her life to go. Amy has just gotten out of a bad relationship and a stifling job, men are not on her radar not even the hunky park ranger who keeps invading her dreams.  If you like your shifter romance a little angsty, a little steamy and a whole lot of fun check out Waking the Bear.

Where the Wild Things Bite (Half-Moon Hollow #5) by Molly Harper

Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Winthrop's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from mid-flight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.

Fortunately, Anna's dashing fanged companion Finn Palmeroy helps her fend off the attack, but not before their plane crash lands in the forest hundreds of miles from civilization. Great, now she's stranded with a priceless tome and a rakish vampire whose bedtime is fast approaching. Why does everyone want this book so badly, anyway? Anna just wants to get it to Jane before Finn decides to turn her into dinner-or sweep her off her feet. Okay, the second option is really tempting. But they're not out of the woods yet...

My review:
Another laugh out loud hit from Molly Harper! Everybody knows a girl like Anna, bookish and lives too much in her head in the land of what if. Anna is not thrilled with the puddle jumper she boards to deliver a rare book to Half-Moon Hollow. She isn’t particularly thrilled with the slovenly piolet or the only other passenger good looking smooth talking vampire Finn Palmeroy either but she soldiers on. Then the land of what ifs becomes a reality outside her head as she is forced to rely on herself and Finn to survive a plane crash and a trek through the woods. I really liked watching Anna grow into herself and watching Finn figure out what Dick learned not so long ago that love is not a con. We will see if he can keep it on the straight and narrow. Taking bets?

Illusion Town (Harmony #13) by Jayne Castle

A new adventure begins on Harmony…  
With its opulent casinos and hotels, the desert city of Illusion Town is totally unique—and will take you on a thrill ride you’ll never forget.
Hannah West isn’t the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All either can remember is that they were on the run…
With Hannah’s dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The coolly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity—as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.
But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light—and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn…

My review:
Welcome to Illusion Town where the thrills are real and existence is an adventure. I LOVE this series and this book is a terrific addition. Illusion Town is Harmony’s version of Las Vegas and like Las Vegas there are good sections and not so good sections of town. Unlike Las Vegas the quality of living in Illusion Town has more to do with how close you are to the Alien’s old towns. I adore the characters in this series and several are given a nod in this new arc. Hannah is The Finder. She has a gift for dream light and dream walking. She is an orphan from the wrong side of town. Elias Coppersmith was born to privilege but works for a living. I love Elias’ engineer mind. Great for solving puzzles not so great for wooing the woman he married. Watching these two figure out a mystery and their relationship is a total hoot.

Series: True Heroes, #2
On Sale: July 26, 2016
Publisher: Forever
Formats: Mass Market & eBook
Price: $6.99 USD (MM) / $5.99 USD (eBook)



Retired Navy SEAL Alex Rojas is putting his life back together, one piece at a time. Being a single dad to his young daughter and working at Hope's Crossing Kennels to help rehab a former guard dog, he struggles every day to control his PTSD. But when Elisa Hall shows up, on the run and way too cautious, she unleashes his every protective instinct.

Elisa's past never stays in her rearview mirror for long, and she refuses to put anyone else in danger. But with Alex guarding her so fiercely yet looking at her so tenderly, she's never felt safer . . . or more terrified that the secrets she keeps could put countless people in grave peril. The only way for both to fully escape their demons will take the ultimate act of courage: letting go and learning to trust each other.

My review:

Hunky men, dogs and romantic suspense. This book rocked! Hope’s Crossing kennel provides a second chance for abused working dogs and the former military guys that run it. 
Alex Rojas is a former SEAL and single father employed by Hope’s Crossing kennel. When he runs across a scared and hurting Elisa Hall in the hospital emergency room he can’t help but play knight in slightly rusty armor. This story has Alex, Elisa and a German Shepherd Dog named Souze bringing out the best in each other. There is action and intrigue but mostly there is love and caring. A terrific tale.

No Were To Run: Shift Happens Book Three (Shift Happens #3) by Robyn Peterman

My name is Dima and I’m a Dragon. I’m also going to die soon. 

It's a battle I’ve waged most of my life, but now the odds are looking crappy. Before I go up flames, I have to find a way to save my horde and make sure my secret treasure is safe. There is one way I could stick around a bit longer, but the men I’ve met aren’t exactly lining up to save me. 

What in hell does a Dragon Princess have to do to find a mate? Offing my father, the reviled Dragon King, would be one way to go. He has a penchant for eliminating any male who shows interest—not to mention he’s been trying to kill me for almost 500 years.  

So my brilliant plan is to take out my father in a blaze of glory—pun intended. However, I have to suck it up and do some stuff I don’t want to do.  

For example, getting along with Dragons who don’t trust me is a horrific challenge even though we share the same goal. That’s why I aligned myself with the rag tag pack of shifters who accepted me and my secret treasure unconditionally. They’re my friends now and I’m keeping them. I’ll fry anyone who dares to speak against my Werewolves, Werecows and the fabulous gay Vampyre named Dwayne.  

Unfortunately the Weres who love me don’t have the kind of fire power I need to take out my father. To get that I have allied myself with a dangerous group of Dragons known as The Resistance. Staying away from the sexy, pompous, fire-breathing, blow hard of a leader is turning out to be a full time job. And no… he’s not even in the running for the mate. Mutual incineration would be inevitable—or sexual combustion.  

You see… Dragons aren’t the easiest of the species to get along with. You can dress us up and take us out, but at the end of the day we’re still the idiots who like a little friendly blood shed and sex—make that lots of sex. 

My life keeps getting more and more complicated, but I’ve run out of options. I’m about to run out of time too. I’m learning there’s no where to run and no where to hide from destiny.

My review:
Robyn Peterman takes serious subjects and injects them with laugh out loud moments of complete hilarity and guarantees a great read. This book is bound to make you think but it will also leave you with a smile.

When A Lioness Snarls (A Lion's Pride #5) by Eve Langlais

Stalking is only a crime among humans. In a lioness’s world, it’s called dating. 

Jeoff, is a bit of a killjoy, a super cute one who gets furry on full moons. 

But so does she. 

Luna is everything Jeoff is not. Outrageous, outgoing, and violent. Very violent, and unafraid to go after what she wants—and she wants Jeoff. 

Silly man, he thinks he can resist, but once a lioness sets her sights on a man, paws off! And if anyone thinks to try and take him… There’s a reason why the ladies of the pride win the yearly award for Baddest Biatches. 

Fear the claw. *Snarl*.

My review:
Quiet wolf and rowdy lioness, it’s a clear case of opposites attracting.  Wolf alpha Jeoff only dates humans because shifters are trouble. He is so right. Luna the lioness has never had a relationship that has lasted longer than three months. She can’t help it if guys can’t handle the awesomeness that is her. When these two are forced by Arik to work together they both fight the attraction for different reasons but what is meant to be will find a way. This is a fun snarky romp that has an ending that will leave you clamoring for more.

Summer's Wolf (Westervelt Wolves #2) by Rebecca Royce

Three years ago, Summer Morrison’s happy, normal life was thrown into upheaval. Forced to discover, before she was ready, that she was half-wolf shifter and mated to the pack’s enforcer has left Summer moody, shaken, and resentful. When tragedy strikes her family, Summer is forced to come back to the world of the Westervelt Wolves…and into the arms of Cullen Murphy.

Cullen has waited three years for Summer, having promised her mother he would give her time to grow up. But he’s never forgotten his mate and craved her presence since he first saw her on the battlefield three years earlier. The trouble is, now that Cullen has Summer, he has no idea what to do with her. Three hundred years of being alone has left Cullen socially inept and more lonesome than he would ever admit. He lives with the guilt and shame of his deeds, while knowing his role is pivotal to the pack’s survival.

Together, Cullen and Summer will heal each other’s wounds and discover that life is worth living as long as they are together. Now there’s just the little matter of Kendrick and Claudius, their evil henchmen, the army of miscreant wolves, and the demons that keep attacking. If they can survive, their love will be everlasting. But failure will mean not only their destruction, but the end of the Westervelt Wolves.

When love is eternal, failure is not an option.

My review:
In this second installment of the Westervelt Wolves we get Ashley’s younger sister Summer and the enforcer Cullen’s story. 300 years old Cullen has been waiting all his life for Summer. When he found her three years ago Summer’s mom made him promise to wait until she was older. He has honored that promise until now. Now Summer has discovered the mutilated remains of her parents and wants revenge. Who better to deliver it for her than the baddest big bad wolf she knows… Cullen. Watching these two get together is a treat. He is much older but socially inept and she is a thoroughly modern girl and constitutionally unable to tell a lie. Heads are going to but. A truly fun read. I recommend reading Her Wolf (Westervelt Wolves #1) first but this can be read stand alone.

Sweet Little Lies (Heartbreaker Bay #1) by Jill Shalvis

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

My review:
I love Jill Shalvis! Only she could make San Francisco a small town. Pru is sweet, tough and resilient. Finn is a workaholic who has had to grow up fast to protect and make a life for him and his brother. When these two meet you can feel the chemistry. But can love grow and survive a lie of omission? This may be the thing that breaks Pru and Finn. This is a fun story with a little dog and younger brother for comic relief and a gang of friends and neighbors for support. I can see a lot more fun coming from this crowd and cannot wait.

Rock Wedding (Rock Kiss #4) by Nalini Singh

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Rock Kiss series with a hot, sweet, emotional contemporary romance about love and forgiveness…

After a lifetime of longing for a real family, Sarah Smith thought she’d finally found her home with rock star Abe Bellamy, even if she knew Abe didn’t love her the way she loved him. But their brief relationship, filled with tragedy and heartache, nearly destroyed her. Alone, emotions in turmoil, and already shaky self-esteem shattered, Sarah struggles to pick up the pieces in the wake of their divorce.

Abe knows he’s to blame for the end of his marriage. Caught in a web of painful memories, he pushed away the best thing in his life – the sexy, smart woman he adores – breaking them both in the process. Then fate throws him a second chance to get things right, to prove to Sarah that she means everything to him. Abe desperately wants that second chance at love...even if he knows he doesn’t deserve it.

But can he convince Sarah – now strong and independent without him – to risk her wounded heart one more time?

My review:
Sweet, heart wrenching second chance romance. Gifted musician/rock star Abe Bellamy has let ghosts from his past chase him into drugs and alcohol to drown them out. It cost him his wife, the woman who loved him for him and not his money or fame. The guys in the band got him into rehab and now Abe is clean and sober and he wants a second chance with Sarah. Sarah has grown up in the four years they’ve been apart. She has gone to school and started a successful business. She isn’t sure her heart can stand another go round with Abe. But oh do we have fun watching these two clear the air and along the way we get to see the other band members tie the knot with their respective partners. Another reason Nalini Singh is on my auto buy list.

Dragon Master by Julie Morgan & Marianne Morea

For Dr. Jamie Torrent life was about empirical proof. What you could see and touch. But when she wakes to a surreal reality where dragons fly free and magic rules the land, the proof is too real to ignore. As real as the dangerous passions set to blaze by the man who summoned her. 

Tryst, Dragon Master, has to marry or fear losing the kingdom he loves. When he meets Jamie, worlds collide in a fierce battle for domination. Will Tryst win and keep his kingdom or will Jamie set aside what she knows as truth?

My review:
Take two modern day scientists and drop them into a fairytale world with Kings, Queens, shapeshifters and magic. Medicine is atrocious and corset wear is DE trope. Shake well with a sense of humor and a healthy dollop of smoking hot sex and you have this fun collaboration from two very talented authors. This book is not for the faint of heart. If you aren’t ready for an adventure and all that entails don’t read this book. But if you want a story filled action, adventure and love by all means gobble this up. I am so glad they are doing another in this world. I can hardly wait.

Amber's Ace (Black Hills Wolves #51) by Taryn Kincaid

Riley Morgan, the all-star ace pitcher of the world champion New York Kings, has long hidden his secret from his adoring fans and the clamoring metropolitan press. But when a long-distance mate call distracts Riley on the mound, he suffers a freak, career-ending injury that sends him back to his South Dakota wolf pack to heal. 

Stolen from her family along with her twin sister years earlier, Amber Northridge has been held prisoner and abused by the crazed former alpha and his henchmen since she was a teen, managing to survive through her resourcefulness and wit. Now, at long last, the pack has located them and set them free. 

Home in Los Lobos, Amber recognizes the hunky baseball player she's seen on TV as her mate, but she doubts she can be with any man after all she has suffered. 

Can the romantic machinations of Los Lobos' four renowned matchmakers unite the damaged pair?

My review:
Another hit in this loosely connected series. You have got to love a hero who loses one future for his mate and still has the patience to woo her gently. Riley is no longer the all-star pitcher but he is okay with that as long as Amber doesn’t reject him. Amber has lived through hell but Riley looks like a light at the end of the tunnel. Amber's Ace is a sweet tale of love conquering past demons.

King of Her Heart by T.L. Reeve

Archer Holt—falcon-shifter and leader of a group of specially trained mercenaries—has been called up by the Secretary of State, Yrsa Larson. 

His mission: Find her daughter, and bring her home. 

Eira Larson isn't one to make waves. After taking an unsanctioned vacation to Belize, she's kidnapped and held in the home of the leader of the Wizard's cartel. She is supposed to be auctioned off into slavery to the highest bidder, but an enigmatic and sexy bodyguard has other plans for her. 

Archer will do whatever it takes to protect Eira when he finds out the girl he's meant to protect is the woman he's destined to mate. 

My review:
Romantic suspense with a twist. A good story even with some shortcuts taken. Entitled college girl ditches bodyguards to hang out with friends on spring break in Belize. She and her friends are kidnapped to be sold into white slavery and falcon shifter Archer Holt and friends are sent in for the rescue. Nothing much new about the story except the falcon shifter part but it was that part that kept me reading. I too fell for Archer and his friends. Check your brain at the door and enjoy.

How Nina Got Her Fang Back (Accidentals #13) by Dakota Cassidy

It’s been a while since Nina Statleon—ex-coffin lover, current chicken wing lover—lost her vampire mojo during a particularly brutal OOPS case. Her friends Wanda and Marty are worried. Nina clearly hasn’t dealt with the emotional fallout caused by losing one’s immortality. She’s got issues. Big issues. 

And it’s time to call in the Big Gun—Paranormal Psychologist January Malone. Her friends will get Nina to the therapist’s office, even if they have to lure her with last bag of Cheetos in Manhattan. 

Of course, the girls couldn’t possibly know that Doctor Malone has an agenda. A forced agenda involving blackmail, which may just save one life…while ending another. It goes against everything January, a white witch, has ever believed in, personally and professionally. 

But the alternative means putting her trust in a foul-mouthed ex-vampire, her werewolf and halfsie friends, a demon, a zombie, a bear and their assorted mates… 


***Author Note: This is an Accidental Quickie and shorter in length than prior novels in the series.*** 

My review:
How Nina Got Her Fang Back contains all the wild and crazy we expect from an Accidental’s book and we get to know our favorite crazy just a bit better. Nina at a shrinks office! Just picture it. Nina is stress eating her way to an early grave. One she can fill now that she isn’t a vampire anymore. Marty, Wanda and Greg convince Nina (okay Wanda picked her up and physically puts her in the chair) to see a shrink so she can deal with her new mortality. I recommend having read the previous books before this but it certainly can be read standalone. If you like laugh out loud PNR you will adore this series.

Hunt Me (Love Thieves #3) by Heather Long

One Thief…

Wealthy, titled, and very privileged, Lady Katherine Hardwicke successfully eluded some of the best thieves in the world in a quest to obtain the Fortunate Buddha. Her time is running out and her enemies are closing in, and one deliciously enigmatic man seems determined to get in her way. Will he save her or end her quest forever?

One Hunt…

Jarod Parker wears many faces and lies for a living, but when the same thief steals the Buddha out from beneath his agents not once but twice, this handler returns to the field. His target? The last woman anyone would suspect of being the thief. But is he really after the Buddha or has this brilliant woman stolen his heart?

One Choice…

Their sensuous game of cat and mouse turns deadly when a third player turns up the heat, but can these two liars come clean with each other or will they lose it all?

My review:
Smart, sexy, fast paced, dialogue driven… Hunt Me is in my humble opinion the best of this series. Jarod and Kit a so smart and they play off of each other so well you just kick back and wait to see what they are going to say or do next. Yes, there is chemistry and the sex is hot but I really loved the word play between these two.  Well worth the read.

My review:
Hunger Moon will suck you in and tear you up. Troy is the adopted son of an asshole of an Alpha. He uses Troy’s sister Quinn to keep him in line. When he sends Troy to scope out the Moonlight Pack the last thing he expects is to find his mate and now he is torn between duty and love.

Buried and Shadowed (Branded Packs #3) by Alexandra Ivy, Carrie Ann Ryan


Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late. 

As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known. 

Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path. 

There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.


Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.

Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.

My review:
Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan have done it again! These are two fantastic stories of a people refusing to let injustice keep them down.
Buried by Carrie Ann Ryan tells the tale of some of the pack more special members in a sexy ménage. Fate has brought these three together to support each other to allow them to do the work that keeps the pack sane and safe.
Shadowed by Alexandra Ivy tells of the work the freedom fighters are doing on the outside. The people are finding the proof of the terrible deeds being wrought against the shifters and proof that it is unjust. This is not work without a cost but if you find your other half along the way it may just help you to keep up the good fight. I will admit this story brought me to tears.
