The Ponder brothers recently joined the Tamang pack after younger brother Crain mated with one of them.  Elder brother Richard has good reason for keeping to the outskirts of the wolf pack after scenting the new Alpa long distance.

The old Alpha is stepping down and his son Abbott is taking over which isn’t going over well with a few members of the pack who believe the Alpha should only be picked after a challenge to the death.  Richard made the decision to stay in the background to listen to rumors and get closer to the troublemakers in order to protect the wolf who is his mate.  He also plans to fight for open positions of beta and enforcer when the time comes.  Close to his mate in bed and pack hierarchy.

Of course when Abbott discovers that his mate has been around for weeks without identifying himself to the new Alpha…well, it’s going to take some fast talking on Richard’s part to keep him from being punished by his very angry mate.  Not telling Abbott is going to land Richard in the proverbial dog house.

Break out the ice – this one is scorching hot!  Readers follow Richard and Abbott’s sexy romance in Unwrapping the Alpha’s Mate, book 15 in the addictive Kontra’s Menagerie series.  A straightforward good guy outsmarting the twisty bad guy kind of tale with engaging characters bent on love.  As they figure out their relationship the couple take time for some truly erotic encounters certain to curl your toes.  Unwrapping the Alpha’s Mate chalks up another entertaining tale.

Nothing in Chip’s life has been easy.  After a long stint in the foster system Chip was adopted, but when he shifted into a bobcat a year later his new parents reacted badly. Chip ran off and spent decades living alone in the forest. His luck turned even worse the day he was captured and became a living experiment for unsavory scientists.

Scarred, starving, and emotionally damaged Chip was eventually freed by Kontra’s shifter gang.  For obvious reasons it’s very difficult for Chip to trust anyone these days.  Their patience and kindness have gone a long way in healing the bobcat.

Chip agrees to travel by motorcycle with the gang when they decide to visit an old friend who hooked up with a lion pride when he found his mate.  Being alone for so long Chip’s social skills are almost nonexistent.  He’s also unschooled in his shifter gifts of heightened senses like scent, as in scenting his mate. 

It’s difficult for lion shifter Grimes Medina to believe that Chip doesn’t know that they are mates though the bobcat will admit to an inner pull towards the sexy shifter.  The lion enforcer for the pride has an uphill battle ahead of him, yet denying his mate is impossible.  Chip is about to learn what being a shifter and a mate truly means.

A physically and emotionally scarred bobcat comes face to face with his other half in the latest Kontra’s Menagerie tale.  Catting Around turns the heat up for a deserving soul in need of salvation.  In the 16th installment of this charming series readers are rooting for a true underdog desperate for love.  As always this series delivers.

Head tracker for their pack Aaric Tamang is a lone wolf because of a family curse. Aaric found his mate Melissa more than seventy years ago, but walked away rather than let her suffer the consequences of the curse and die.  Recently a Tamang pack member broke the curse, except it’s years too late for Aaric.

A costume party is the last place the wolf wants to be found until he scents his mate in the crowd.    Wolf shifter Crain Ponders is visiting the pack along with his ‘family’ of various shifters in Kontra’s motorcycle gang.  He has no doubt that Aaric is his mate and heartbroken when the other wolf refuses to acknowledge their bond.  Aaric has never heard of a shifter being given two mates in a lifetime and doesn’t know what to think or do.  Crain storms off so it’s up to Aaric to decide.  Ignore the possibility or take a chance that fate’s given the lone wolf another mate.

Emotional turmoil followed by raw, erotic sensuality.  Second Chance to Mate boils with angst and passion.  One wolf is bound and determined to deny a happy future while the other is devastated and unsure how to resolve their problems. They wade through confusion and chaos until realizing Second Chance to Mate is more than a wish.  First comes the drama and then it’s hot, hot, and hotter.

The day finally came when Ryan Carpenter allowed his conscience and integrity to take charge rather than training and conditioning by a group of scientists.  Offering to help a team of shifters infiltrate one of the scientists training facilities was the first step.  Ryan can’t help feeling nervous about the mission even though he’s been assured he’s in good hands with Kontra Belikov’s shifters. Hopefully his past never comes to light.

Longhorn bull shifter Sam Abbott is happy for his friends.  He’s happy they’ve found their mates.  Sam simply wishes it was his turn to find a mate.

Told that he’s got nothing to worry about Ryan is understandably upset when one of the shifters manhandles him against a wall when they’re introduced.  From Sam’s point of view he can’t comprehend why his new found mate isn’t as thrilled as he is.  No matter what Ryan is feeling towards Sam he’s more afraid of the bull finding out about his past.  Unless Sam can break through Ryan’s guilt they’ve got no chance. None whatsoever.

Texas Longhorn Surprise pits love against a deadly secret. Ryan and Sam’s romance is turbulent from start to finish.  Added to that is a suspenseful shifter rescue.  This high gear emotional drama against a backdrop of danger will leave readers clamoring for more.

Out for the rest of the hockey season because of a freak accident on the ice with a rival player, Rueben Malone is searching for his missing brother.  The police let Rueben know that Ricky was following a lead and fell off the radar.

Members of Kontra’s pack are trying, so far unsuccessfully to get Detective Ricky Malone to agree to keep silent about shifter’s existence.  Not even his ex-partner Draven can get him to keep quiet.  Apparently finding out that Draven isn’t human isn’t helping the matter.

Stopping at an out of the way motel for information Rueben literally stumbles across his brother and the pack.  Among the group is a tidy, sexy guy Rueben would love to rumple up.  Rueben doesn’t know yet that he’s hot for a peacock shifter and his mate. But he will, real soon.

Another tantalizing, original tale comes to life in Ruffling the Peacock’s Feathers, the twelfth story in the popular Kontra’s Menagerie series.   Talk about complete opposites, Rueben and his mate Lamar couldn’t be more different.  Between their roller coaster romance and the detective’s issues the entertainment value never ends.  Ruffling the Peacock’s Feathers adds a new layer to this captivating series.  Their convoluted love story is an adventure not be missed.
