Paws, Preening and a Pumpkin Patch by Charlie Richards
Series: Wolves of Stone Ridge #31
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal
True to his Kodiak bear shifter nature, Hessian ‘Hess’ Roshburg is an easy going, rambling kind of guy. Too much of an Alpha without wanting the responsibility it entailed, Hess left home and his family long ago.
At the moment he’s in Stone Ridge, Colorado to visit his old friend Dillan Shoreman, a feline shifter who recently found his mate and settled in the area.
Recently rescued after decades of abuse at the hands of human scientists a little avian pack is learning how to live in the world thanks to the generosity of the Stone Ridge wolf pack. Gilbert, a raven shifter and his friends are getting their bearings. He’d had a life outside a cage before being caught while some of the others never experienced freedom before.
Talking them into going out isn’t easy, but the chance to visit a gay bar and dance entices them. Gilbert couldn’t be more surprised to meet his mate at the bar, but he politely explains that it’s a bad time right now to the large shifter stranger.
To say that Hess is dumbfounded by his mate’s response couldn’t be truer. Fate has indeed matched the raven and the Kodiak, unlikely as it seems. Patience, finesse, and an easy going bear mated to a skittish, caged bird. Perfect.
Book thirty-one in the ever popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series brings another fresh tale to life in Paws, Preening and a Pumpkin Patch. Gilbert’s had a really rough life and simply doesn’t know yet that Hess is a dream come true. As always, the characters in this series are what make Paws, Preening and a Pumpkin Patch so entertaining. This charming storyline and loyal, engaging characters can’t be beat. Pleasing from start to finish.
