ShadowShifters – Shapeshifting wolf creatures that love
as fiercely as they fight.

Aidan Bloodlocke never dreamed he was a wolf Shifter, much less an Alpha.
When a pack takes him in, his entire world changes, and loyalties are
developed. Then disaster strikes, and he’s on a ruthless mission
for justice.
When veterinarian Maddie Ardelle moved to Bridgepoint, Maine, to start a
normal, peaceful life on her own, she didn’t expect to get herself
caught in the crossfire of two factions of violent, feuding
werewolves. And definitely not entangled with a sexy biker shifter
that made her weak in the knees. Against their will, Maddie and
Aidan’s worlds collide, and with an attraction so enthralling, both
are helpless to resist.
As Aidan struggles to fight for both love and duty, he uncovers a
betrayal so heinous, it puts the lives of his entire pack and the
brave woman he desires at unthinkable risk. The stakes are high, and
both must decide if Maddie ultimately can live in his violent world
of teeth and claw in this action-packed paranormal romance series!

Quote from Kharma Kelley on writing Paranormal Romance:
“There’s something intriguing about strong women finding love in all the
“wrong” places in the world of fantasy. Of angels, demons,
ghosts, werewolves and your occasional blood sucker, all these
paranormal metaphors are catalysts of what humans are and crave
most…that we’re all different, beautiful and a little bit
weird–and just want someone to love us for who we are.”
She lives in Texas with her husband.

Rescued by the Wolf (Blood Moon Brotherhood #2)

Rescued by the Wolf (Blood Moon Brotherhood) by [Summers, Sasha]Rescued by the Wolf

Rating:
Author: Sasha Summers
Series: Blood Moon Brotherhood

Print Length: 260 Pages

Publication Date: August 28, 2017


 

Mal wants one thing in life—vengeance against those that deserted him and those who tortured him. But rescuing a wounded girl from their captors, one that wreaks of innocence and fear, makes Mal put his plan on hold. Temporarily. He’ll do what he needs to keep her alive and safe, even if it changes both of their lives forever.

Being stabbed and held in a dark cell wasn’t on Olivia’s top ten list. Her savior isn’t exactly hero material. Angry, scarred, and pissed at the world, he seems to resent being saddled with her. But the longer they’re together, the more firmly a connection forms between them. A connection that binds her to him, his pack, and his world. But that connection may just lead to her death.

Rescued by the Wolf is the second book in the Blood Moon Brotherhood series penned by Sasha Summers. I never read the first book in the series and this would too; be my first book by this author.

Rescue by the Wolf was a surprisingly good book. With strong character and a well-developed plot. The characters grew on you. There is a little mystery to solve along the way which made it even better as the two main characters struggle with the predicament they found themselves in.

A definite must read, especially if you’re a fan of the paranormal genre which this title fits right in with books like the Cascadia Wolves Series and Wolves of Willow Bend.

An excerpt from TAMING THE LION
Copyright © Kerry Adrienne 2017
“Go away.” His voice barely a whisper on the thick summer air. “I’ll kill you.”

Alicia gripped the scalpel. She could slide it across his neck in a flash, and it’d be over. No one would have to know. A mercy killing, of sorts. Though she’d be lying to herself to categorize it as such.

Her grandmother’s words echoed. Alicia was a healer, not a killer.

From the looks of the lion’s shirt, already dark, yet now wet with blood, he might not recover even with her best efforts to save him. The scent of gunpowder and burnt flesh peppered the blood-laden air. The lions had left him to die under a bush in bear territory, shot in the shoulder.

She shook her head and settled to the ground on her knees. “I’m not going anywhere.” The strength of her voice hid her fear, though he might sense it anyway. His scent was that of a strong and confident shifter, even in his current state.

He looked at her.

She blinked, trying to calm the adrenaline rush that shot through her. His eyes, mesmerizing and wide, lured her in, and she couldn’t turn away. Deep green or maybe brown or even both, they were a color she’d never seen and his gaze was magnetic. Her mouth went dry.

He was her sworn enemy. Sexy, but injured.

She glanced to the sky, but didn’t see Grandmother Hawk. Typical. Recently, she’d started leaving Alicia to figure out the moral decisions on her own, trusting that she would make the right one.

Part of the training.

“Shit.” The scalpel had warmed in her hands, and the sun glinted off the blade in a flash of silvery-white. What would her grandmother do? No doubt, she’d help the lion. Maybe she wouldn’t tell the bears, who she was loyal to, but she’d never let a lion die if she could heal him. She’d never intentionally let anyone die on her watch.

“War is for the weak minded,” she’d always said. Alicia was beginning to think she was right. Why couldn’t shifters all get along?

Because the damn lions wanted the bears’ territory. If they’d stayed in their own area, none of the bloodshed would’ve happened. Even though Alicia had heard the stories of the lions and bears and wolves sharing the cave, the actuality felt as foreign as items in an ancient history book. As remote as a fairy tale.

Fantasy.

“Go.” He turned away, but she could still see the strain on his face as he winced.

His black hair, falling to his shoulders, was damp and matted. How early in the battle had he been wounded? He was bound to be dehydrated.

“I’m here to help. Like it or not.” She slid the scalpel into its sheath and back into the pocket of her pack. Her earlier assessment was correct. The lion was no threat at the moment. He could barely move. The rise and fall of his chest showed his respirations were high and labored. Blood loss was nearing the severe level.

He needed help before his body went into shock.

She looked back toward the trail to make sure she was alone. If Griff or Derek found out about him, the lion wouldn’t need help anymore and her time as medic would be over.

She’d worry about that another day. She had a lion to save.

The Shifter Wars have come and gone. There were losses on both sides. Now it’s time for Alicia to do what she was meant to do. That of saving the wound. But, on her last outing, she came across her destiny.

Marco heir to the lions’ throne, was severally wounded and in the enemy territory. Expecting to die, until one bear shifter refused to let him do so.

Taming the Lion was everything I was expecting. The romance between Marco and Alicia developed throughout the story, so when they finally got together it felt believable. But, you know what happens when two different being from two different worlds trying to obtain happiness. There is always someone on the opposite side trying to destroy said happiness. Well in Marco and Alicia case their happiness may cause a bigger war than what just occurred.

Taming the Lion was fast paced with good chemistry between the two main characters. This is a great book for any paranormal fan.

“You need to know this thing between us isn’t over.” 

Michelle Slattery is no stranger to human cruelty. She’s a cop, after all, never mind a witch herself. But when her best friend disappears and all signs point to the same mages who have been killing witches across the country, she’s in over her head. There’s only one place to turn for the kind of tracking help she needs…

The werewolves.

Josh Neelan didn’t expect to ever see a witch at Pacific Pack headquarters. She’s no ordinary witch in need, either—Michelle was his first love. The one he left behind when he turned a decade ago. That their attraction flares instantly after all this time can mean only one impossible thing: she’s his mate.

As danger looms and the case intensifies, Josh’s need to follow the fates and claim Michelle as his mate grows…his man battling his wolf to keep them safe. And Michelle must decide just how far she’ll go to find her forever. Take my advice and never read when you’re drained. I read this story twice. I almost gave it a poor review, because I thought it was the story line that made me fall asleep. Turns out that my mind and body was just tired. And Twice Bitten turned out to be a pretty good book.

Twice Bitten is book #7 in the Cascadia Wolves series. It was originally published under the name “Unconditional” in August 2013.
Witches are being taken and killed for their magic. It becomes personal for one cop when Michelle Slattery’s friend is taken, it will be up to her and a man from her past to find her before it’s too late.

Twice Bitten is a second chance at love tale. With action and drama found on every each page. Twice Bitten isn’t one of those titles you can pick up and just follow the storyline. You must read each book in the series to following the plot.

Jaguar shifter Sebastian Severino is an enigma. He lives alone, works alone, and will die alone. But the night he’s attacked by a female werewolf, nothing will ever be the same. And when his young niece is kidnapped, Sebastian, the deadliest assassin Nero has ever produced, will be forced to choose a side…

Isabelle Wood has never taken the easy path. As a bounty hunter and now a bitten werewolf without a mate, she’s searching for answers to her father’s disappearance while helping to lead an Alphaless Pack. The night she gets the opportunity to take out their enemy, with her blade at his throat, her wolf discovers her mate in the last person she can be with.

Each now again you get that one run that one book, that you prefer not to state farewell to those dearest characters, to the experience. For me, New Moon was that book.
New Moon is the eighth and last story in the Moon Series, it can be perused as an independent. In any case, to get the full entertainment and due to the plot, I would encourage to begin the Moon Series from the earliest starting point.
You heard the idiom the wrongdoings of the father. Well in Sebastian case that platitude couldn’t be more genuine; however, with one telephone call from his sister. His niece that he never met was taken and held prisoner by his dad. It was dependent upon Sebastian to save her and put a conclusion to his dad’s rule of dread.
Lisa Kessler made a brilliant showing with regards to the closure of this series. It had various curve and turns, and poor Sebastian was so missed comprehended by such a variety of individuals.
My most loved piece of New Moon was not the collaboration between the two primary characters but rather when Sebastian was to at last meet his niece. That scene between them was touching to the point that I needed to put the book down to dry a few tears.
New Moon was fantastic perused through and through. Brimming with activity, sentiment and a few alpha men to kick the bucket for.
New Moon is surely one book that I can see myself rereading several more time during the summer.

Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.

But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?

Cougar Bait is fun, sexy and will take readers on an emotional thrill ride.

Cougar Bait is book #2 in Evangeline Anderson Cougarville series. What can I say…I thought this book was pretty fun. The book was aptly named. A younger man falling for an older woman. The Older woman trying not to fall in love with the younger man. But when that man is a hot shifter. What can a woman do…? but sit back and enjoy the ride.

Unfortunately, I never read the first book in this series. I just might have too, this one certainly kept my attention. I liked how sweet and crafty Liam was to make Samantha fall for him. Even though I found Samantha annoying at times.

Nonetheless, Evangeline Anderson has done what she set out to do. Writing characters that some readers could relate too.
