Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit. Though the team has a reputation among the other recon units, only their commanding officer knows their secret. As a woman, the danger posed is entirely different. Jax can survive the temptation for only so long before his wolf takes over and pursues what it wants.

Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team. And everyone’s watching her. Her mission? Not only prove herself worthy of her place in the group, but uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful. A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax…

When Danger Bites shows you that even the shadowy part of the government want a piece of the action when they learn the existence of shifters. to keep their pack safe from annihilation a band of wolves must join the services.
Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit, is known as one of the best. Now the MIS wants to know their secrets. So, they send in MIS Corporal Kaitlyn “Kat” Amador to infiltrate the Force Recon unit to uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful.
Romance took a back seat in the 1st title in Bravo Team Wolf. All focus was on building the back story of this elite band of men. Which was totally okay, because without a backstory this series will never take off. Not to say that there wasn’t chemistry between Jax and Kaitlyn. That is what made this storyline work because normally I would complain that there wasn’t enough romance and that is what this genre is about…. Right! But the slow building of their growing attraction made it seemed somehow more real than having them confess their love from the beginning.
Initially, it was Jax training Kat to become part of the TEAM, but it really turns out it was Kat teaching Jax that not all women need a rough bunch of men to protect them.
All in all, I liked When Danger and looking forward to seeing where this series is heading.
I would recommend this book to readers whose into shifter, and military romance.

From “falling in love” to “it’s complicated,” New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristin Miller brings you three, full-length, deliciously hotparanormal love stories with sexy alpha heroes and the strong-willed women who bring these werewolves to heel.

The Werewolf Wears PradaMelina Rosenthal worships at the altar of all things fashion. Her dream is to work for the crème de la crème fashion magazine, Eclipse, and she’ll do pretty much anything to get there. Even fixing up the image of a gorgeous, sexy public figure who’s all playboy, all the time. Even if he’s the guy who broke her heart a year ago. And even if Melina has no idea that Hayden Dean is actually a werewolf…

Beauty and the Werewolf Billionaire werewolf Jack MacGrath has almost everything—the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack’s in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, demure, proud…and his enemy. Isabelle Connelly is werewolf royalty and falling for anyone lesser — to say nothing of a rival pack — would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack…or her perfect fated mate.

What a Werewolf Wants Private investigator – and werewolf – Ryder McManus doesn’t believe in marriage. But then he never expected to find his fated mate, Josie, at his best friend’s wedding festivities. When Josie and Ryder are together, the chemistry heats up. While he’s trying to stop the wedding, she’ll do whatever it takes to give the couple a dream day. But the secret he’s trying to expose might just ruin everything.

I am a big fan of shifter romance, but this collection just didn’t do it for me. If you are a reader just trying to find if shifter romances are your thing. This collection would be for you. It’s very mild in the way the shifter world is brought to life. However, if you like gritter paranormal, shifter romance this collection is not for you.  Even though I found Beauty and the Werewolf an interesting read, that book along didn’t save the collection.

The other stories were slow and the men characters weren’t likable. Whereas, The Werewolf Wears Prada; Hayden Dean redeemed himself earlier in the story. Ryder didn’t until the very end. Therefore, I would just purchase the books individually than in this collection pack.

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.

  Waking the Bear is the 1st book in Kerry Adrienne new series Broken Chains.

Amy Francis needed a place to vacation alone, long enough to decide what she would do with the rest of her life.  So when she came across the listen for a cabin in Deep Creak she hoped at the chance.  Just coming out of a bad relationship, she wasn’t looking to immediately fall into another one, until she meets the owner of the cabin Parker Ranger Griff Martin.

Griff Martin and his pack members are preparing to go to war with the lion pack.  With the distraction of war and his old enemy showing up, he forgets to remove his cabin from the realtors rental properties list. But when he meets his new tenant, all bets are off.

Griff must find some way of keeping Amy in Deep Creek and keep her hidden from his enemies.

Waking the Bear was a good shifter romance. The story was short, but otherwise steady. This book set the stage nicely for the other titles. I will definitely be reading the other titles in this series…just to see the outcome of the war.

Moonstruck (Diablo Lake #1)

Moonstruck (Diablo Lake, #1)

In Diablo Lake, Tennessee, a town populated by werewolves, witches and more, magic woven deep into the earth protects the town’s secrets from outsiders.

Katie Grady left Diablo Lake to get over a humiliating breakup. But her family needs her help, so she’s back, in a sublet right across the hall from the guy she’s lusted after for years. Jace Dooley is hotter than ever, and their friendship picks up along with massive doses of grown-up chemistry.

The very scent of Katie sharpens Jace’s canines, makes the wolf within him stir. There’s nothing more alluring to a Pack Alpha than a sexy female who is so very in charge. She won’t be coddled, but if he plays his hand just right she might be convinced to become his.

Katie presents a challenge to Jace’s wolf nature, whose chief instinct is to protect. Especially now that she’s coming into the magic that is her birthright—and suddenly Jace isn’t the only one who’s interested in Katie or the raw power she’s just learning to use.

 

My Review: I almost given up on this book. I put it down then I returned to it, just to restart from the beginning. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. Me putting it down, had to have been, because I was truly tired that day and not the book at all.

Lauren Dane in this paranormal romance she has a mixture, from witches to wolf shifters. In Diablo Lake: Moonstruck we’re introduced very strong willed individuals. Jace’s because he’s an alpha wolf and Katie because she’s a strong witch.

Katie has finally come home. Leaving Diablo was the hardest thing she ever done, but after being stood up at the alter she had no choice. But, know she’s home where she’s belong.

When Jace finds out that Katie was home, it was time for him to claim which was his.

Diablo Lake: Moonstruck was a very solid story with again strong characters with a steady pace.

Wicked Burn (Realm Enforcers #3)

Simone Brightston knows she can beat the rap her enemies are pinning on her. An Irish witch is nobody’s fool, and she didn’t get to her position on the high council without serious power. But her cousins want her to hide out–and they somehow convinced her arch nemesis to play getaway driver.

Of all the men she’s known, Nikolaj Veis is the hardest to intimidate. With his demon-dark eyes and his inscrutable beauty, he’s as desirable as he is dangerous. And he knows better than to underestimate Simone. So when he pulls up on a roaring bike and tells her to climb on or fight it out, she grabs a handful of jacket and holds on tight. Running from the law may not be the smartest plan. But when it comes to Nick, hot pursuit and a blazing fast ride are exactly what Simone’s looking for . . .

My Review: You could go through life looking for that perfect book, written by one of the all-time greats. You still wouldn’t find it. So, I will settle for that great book, written by one of my favorite authors.

When I read a romance. My men has to be hot and the women that they love has to be fierce. In Wicked Burn written by Rebecca Zanetti that is exactly what I got.

Nikolai Veis was on the road to having everything being a demon that was saying a lot. Until one day he was told to secure Simone future he had to leave her behind. Nikolai would do anything for Simone so he did. A century has pass and now Simone future is still not secure, she is being hunted by a yet to be known person.

Wicked Burn is wickedly sexy, and wild. The banter between Nikolai and Simone is too enjoyable to pass up. The nickname he has for Simone was very cute also.

When you browse through the story looking for that good book. Or if you enjoy a good eBook, don’t forget to get your copy.

Broad and all-powerful, a man who knows how to thrive in the wild–and bring to the edge of ecstasy the woman he claims as his own . . .

Determined to defend her late father’s work, Amber Green heads into the heat of the Nevada canyons to prove the existence of the Yaguara, a shape-shifting race of jaguars. There she meets the one man more hell-bent on protecting the jaguars than she is: Jareth, a force of raw male nature to be reckoned with–an animal worth pursuing . . .

 

My Review: Amber Fire by Lisa Renee Jones was short but sweet. But if you love paranormal romance this would be a must read.

Amber Green takes up the research of her late father. Research to prove that shape-shifters does exist. Unbeknownst to Amber while she conducts her research, the  jaguars  shifters are also keeping their eyes on her, mainly Jareth a raw alpha male who wants her gone or does he.

Even though the story ended abruptly that still didn’t take away from how great Amber Fire was. The chemistry between Jareth and Amber was great and the story line was very interesting.

An alpha werewolf meets his match in this sizzling paranormal romance from USA Today bestselling author Terry Spear

THERE’S A NEW WOLF PACK IN SILVER TERRITORY
Wolf shifter and park ranger Eric Silver is committed to his job policing spectacular San Isabel National Forest, and he’s hot on the scent of some mysterious wolves who are up to no good. When Eric’s investigation leads him to cross paths with forester Pepper Grayling, he’s fascinated to learn this she-wolf is her pack’s leader—strong, independent, and definitely not looking for a mate.

AND THIS TIME THE LEADER’S A SHE…
With unknown dangers on the prowl, Pepper is tempted to give in to her attraction to Eric and align her pack with his. But Pepper’s been pursued by many an alpha male out to take over her pack and gain her hard-won territory—and Eric is a born leader. How does Eric earn the trust of a she-wolf who’s been betrayed so often in the past?

 

My Review: Terry Spear takes us all back to Silvertown and the Silver Pack. Eric Silver a wolf shifter and park ranger is hot on the trail of wolves’ shifters who are to no good. In the mist of his investigation it leads him to a wolf pack lead by a fierce, independent leader named Pepper. Even though Eric wasn’t looking for a mate. His wolf was. And it chose Pepper as the one for them.

Out of this series, this one fits right up there with Dreaming of the Wolf. Even though Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply had a slow beginning it soon vaulted into high voltage once the two main character got together.
