Wolf shifter Logan St. Clair lost his place within his pack by attacking the new Alpha and his male Alpha mate.   Though influenced by others, homophobic attitudes could no longer be tolerated and therefore Logan is forced to leave.  He is taken into Kontra’s biker gang to learn the error of his ways.

 

The biker’s make a pit stop to visit with other shifters and their human friends on the road.  During the visit Logan realizes that fate does indeed have a sense of humor after sensing his mate in the group, his human male mate.

 

No matter how hard Logan tries to fight the pull it doesn’t stop him from wanting college student Tyson Grubler.  The wolf has come a long way from his past attitude, but asking him to take a male mate is pushing things.  Everything comes to a head however when someone else moves on Tyson and Logan makes a serious error in judgment. Now it’s up to Logan to come clean to the bikers and hope that Tyson will forgive and accept him, fur and all.

 

A bad attitude and a multitude of mistakes color an eventful romance in Wooing His Wolf.  After everything that Logan does wrong it is Tyson’s love that soothes the wolf in their exciting storyline.  Kontra’s Menagerie adds another unpredictable tale to their series with Logan and Tyson’s inspiring love story.  Wooing His Wolf starts out with a combustible match and goes supernova.  What fun!

One of the newest members of Kontra’s biker gang is Alpha Diego Tamang.  The three hundred year old wolf is hoping to find his mate as he travels the country with the other shifters.

 

Stopping for lunch in a small rural town Diego is thrilled to scent his mate in a little diner.  Apparently that is the only easy part for the wolf because his mate is considerably younger and his mate’s mother is noticeably protective, perhaps even overprotective.

 

Getting Zachary Young to agree to a bit of time together takes some maneuvering, but in the end the two are able to meet for a lovely picnic.  The next step will be revealing what Diego and the others are.  Then there’s the little matter of getting Zach to shift without him having a nervous breakdown.  Hm…

 

The world opens in a most unusual way for one young human in Soothing the Zebra’s Fears.  Another member of Kontra’s Menagerie finds true love with fate’s kind assistance.  A sweet, loving naïve Zach is matched with weary, honorable Diego.  Sparks fly and tender mating follows.  Some exciting twists in the plotline ensue to ensure that Soothing the Zebra’s Fears entertains everyone.  This series is always a pleasure.

College student Kai Sudderson and his friends are enjoying the summer before school starts up again.  A large pond system nearby is the perfect place for Kai to relax and swim in his platypus shifter form.  His human friends have known for years that he can transform into a platypus, his aunt and uncle who raised him are unaware of what their nephew can do.  It was hard enough for them to accept that he was gay, never mind tell them he’s a shifter.

 

Taking a dip in the pond Kai becomes snagged in a beaver trap.  He’s all alone and unable to shift without causing further damage and tiring quickly.  Just when Kai becomes desperate for help he is saved by a small penguin shifter.

 

After the rescue he’s excited to meet a whole group of shifters.  Kai has never met anyone like him before and even though his human friends are the best it’s great to find other shifters.  One in particular fascinates the college senior, Dorian Yaris.  Kai doesn’t understand the significance of mates, yet he feels a strong pull towards the older shifter.

Life is about experiencing new things, Kai and Dorian have only begun.

 

Leave it to author Charlie Richards to come up with another enjoyable Kontra’s Menagerie storyline filled with interesting, flawed characters.  Kai is an unusual shifter type yet he’s got human friends who love him and a brand new life with his mate Dorian.  His human family offers additional tension and issues to work through.  Educating the Platypus features intriguing challenges and a great deal of fun.

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.
