As Alpha for a Stray Cat pack Hansen fully accepts responsibility for the shifters under his care.  He’s always treated his charges exactly the same, no favorites.  Growing up his father wasn’t a good role model as a husband, father, or Alpha so Hansen knows the difference.

 

Life was going fine for Nevel until he shifted and suddenly became a pariah to his family.  Homeless, starving, and scared, though he’d never admit it, Nevel was parked behind a dumpster when Hansen found him.

 

The firm belief in treating everyone equally becomes a big problem for Hansen after he falls for Nevel.  Feelings are mutual.  Nevel would like nothing better than to be with his Alpha as his mate.  Hansen won’t budge however which is causing huge friction in the cat shifters home.  It’s starting to affect everyone so something’s got to give.  The sooner the better.

 

The Stray Cat Hustle series begins with a sweet love story in Catnip and Hockey Sticks.  Naïve emotions and miscommunication lead Hansen and Nevel’s romance astray.  Their clumsy attempt to fix the problem is the crux of this tale.  The characters are pleasant and the story holds promise, though the snarky dialogue is somewhat too full of smart aleck comments.  Catnip and Hockey Sticks is simply a lovely little romance.

Pretty much everyone in the Gillham wolf pack barely tolerates Derick Teague because he’s gay.  If it wasn’t for the love of his older brother Duncan the young wolf would probably have left long ago and been labeled a rogue.  Since no one paid attention to him it was easy to accidentally overhear Alpha Walter Erskine and his inner circle plan to overthrow the Whitedell pride and take their land.

 

Feeling empathy toward the innocent pride members Derick abandons his home to warn the cat shifters.  Alpha Dominic luckily believes his story.  Standing in the Alpha’s office with his jaguar Beta Nate, the cat and the wolf scent each other as mates.  To Derick’s way of thinking a dog and a cat don’t bond, but he’s willing to think about it.

 

Their mating shoots into high gear when the wolf Alpha demands Derick’s return and they all know what that would mean.  Tensions run high between the pack and the pride as shifter laws are tested.  Some take advantage and others outright bend the rules.  It’s a tug of war with Derick and Nate right in the middle.  Without help their mating doesn’t stand a chance.

 

Another intense adventure for the Whitedell Pride with Derick, the second book in the series.  A wolf tries to do the right thing for another group of shifters and all hell breaks loose.  Derick and Nate’s romance takes a back seat to the machinations of a dishonorable Alpha.  The young wolf hides a more than tender heart, worried that his stoic suitor will ultimately break him.  Derick deserves every bit of happiness from his uptight jaguar. Ultimately they will find a way.  This delightful series is becoming addictive.

This is not the life Micah Lewis would wish on anyone.  Of course working for someone isn’t a problem.  It’s the fact that his twin brother Spencer is used as leverage to control Micah and vice versa.  Forced to live and work within the city he yearns for open land, pine forests, and fresh, unpolluted air.  The closest Micah can get to freedom is one of the cities small parks, and that’s only if he gets permission.  As long as Leopold the Fae owns the twins there is no chance of escape.

 

If not for the problems with his motorcycle werewolf shifter Daniel Hawthorn would’ve been long gone from the city.  Charged with acknowledging Leopold the Fae as head of the Paranormal Council in his brother’s stead Daniel’s waiting for the repairs to be done.  Sitting on a crowded bus is the last place the wolf shifter expects to scent his mate.

 

Knowing there will be consequences, a punishment, Micah nonetheless accepts an invitation from Daniel to spend time together.  It won’t matter to the Council leader that Daniel and Micah are mates.  As far as the Fae is concerned Micah is his and if he doesn’t behave Spencer will pay the price.  Torn between duty to his brother and to his mate Micah is truly stuck.  The next step will change everything.

 

An innovative set up in Downtown Bus amplifies an intriguing wrinkle to the basic shifter storyline.  Micah’s own unique heritage, captive shifters, and other bad deeds are brought to life in this original series. Tall, dark, and smitten Daniel is the perfect mate for Micah.  This plotline ‘formula’ gets a fresh look with engaging characters and an edgy twist or two in Downtown Bus.  What happens next in this new series is anyone’s guess.

The breakup of a four year relationship left Jamie Ellis reeling after discovering Colin got a woman pregnant of all things.  Taking an impromptu camping trip to think his ill conceived alone time takes a bizarre twist when he accidently spies three large felines shift into men.  Jamie manages to run away though he forgets his things, including his wallet in the mad dash.

 

After telling Alpha Dominic they’d been seen the trio are sent to retrieve the human for a little ‘talk’.  Because Jamie told his story to his younger brother Keenan the pair are brought to the pride home.  The brothers agree to keep quiet and plan to return home until the black leopard, otherwise known as Ward, gets a good sniff of Jamie and realizes they are mates.  Ward is hurt that his human won’t become his mate right away, but there’s no way Jamie will agree to another relationship without knowing each other.  Especially if it’s a forever kind of thing.

 

They begin dating and everything is finally falling into place for Jamie and Ward.  On a group date everyone is having fun until Jamie disappears on the way to the men’s room.  There’s no trace of him.  Nothing to go on.  The only certainty is that Ward can feel that Jamie is still alive.  But for how long?

 

The Whitedell Pride speaks loud and clear in Jamie, the first installment in an intense new series.  Relying primarily on character development Jamie scores big in this hard fought love story.  Feisty characters, emotional drama and a storyline that never loses steam can’t be beat.  Further dealings with Jamie’s kidnapping adds another level of excitement and suspense to the story.  Don’t miss Jamie and this spirited new series.

Ross McCord loves his father and his sister Skena dearly.  A promise to protect them is put to the test when Chieftain Goth insists on sending her to another clan as a bride price.  If Ross can find a way into a hidden valley Goth will give Skena her freedom.

 

Scrambling up the mountainside Ross is stopped by a stranger and gets his first glimpse of dragon kind.  Caught between a rock and a hard place the highlander is frantic to save his sister, yet for the first time he’s consumed with lust for a male, the dragon Ziethman.  Helping Ross is the only way the dragon can have his heart’s desire, the highlander.  Together they resolve to save the McCord family from the machinations of a wily chieftain’s evil plans for war.
