Review @HolleyTrent - The Coyote's Cowboy by Holley Trent (Masters of Maria #5)





The Coyote's Cowboy
Masters of Maria #5
by Holley Trent

Goodreads blurb:  Those sexy shapeshifters are once again on the prowl in Maria, New Mexico, in this tender romance that explores the soft side of being accepted—and loved.

Sheena Esposito has never rocked the boat in her father’s repressive Coyote pack, but when she learns of his intentions to further antagonize a rival alpha, she can’t stay quiet. She must warn the good guys that trouble is headed their way.

When her search lands her outside Maria, New Mexico, a surly ranch hand pegs her as an annoying stray dog. Desperate to keep his new job, cowboy Austin Stuart plans to get rid of the distraction. Yet, according to his little brother, the dog is really a human, and she’s on the run. Could this get more ridiculous? But he soon finds out shapeshifters are very real…and all signs point to Austin being Sheena’s mate.

After a lifetime spent recovering from one embarrassing social gaffe after another, Austin is open to trading his solitude for a chance at having a partner who’s kind about his rough edges—and no one’s sweeter than Sheena. Unfortunately, Sheena is still under her abusive father’s thumb, and she knows he’s waiting for her back in Sacramento.

It’s up to Austin to convince her that the bravest thing she can do is stay in Maria—not only for him, but so she can incite lasting change in Coyote culture as well.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this book!

The cover is okay, but doesn’t really let you know it is paranormal to me!

This is the 5th book in this series which is a spin-off series of another spin-off!  You know what I mean if you love Holley’s work!  This is for adults only due to the steamy content.  While not mandatory, I highly recommend reading the book in order because it is much more cohesive and awesome that way!

Sheena is back!  If you read Blue’s story, then you know who his ex-fiancĂ©e is.  Trouble is brewing, and she is trying to get a warning out to Blue.  She has a misadventure of sorts where she stumbles into Austin and his younger brother.  Both Sheena and Austin have issues and baggage galore to figure out before they can find their happiness.  Of course, they both have help along the way too from some of my favorites in Maria.

This book was awesome, and I couldn’t put it down.  If you love this series, you don’t want to miss this new story!

I highly recommend to all paranormal fans who love mixed and complicated worlds where you might stumble onto shifters, witches, fae, goddesses, gods, and so much more in the adventure that ends with love!

Review @donna_grant - Dark Alpha's Night by Donna Grant (Reapers #5)





Dark Alpha's Night
Reapers #5
by Donna Grant

Goodreads blurb:  Dark Alpha’s Night is a brand new paranormal romance in the Reapers series featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I'm coming for you...

To some Fae, I am their worst nightmare. For I do Death’s bidding. But for all our strength and skill, a powerful enemy has risen up. Finding Ettie could change everything. The Half-Fae is our one chance. She’s sharp and strong and fierce. She steals my breath every time I'm near her. And looking into her eyes is like a bolt of lightning right through me. She’s what I’ve been waiting for my long, dark existence. But for us to be together, we must first stay alive…


About the Author:  Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, three cats, and a dog.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this series in ebook!

The cover is steamy!

This is the first book in the Reapers series that I have read.  It is for adults only due to the steamy content.  I really love how this world and the Dark Kings are one in the same.  I went and bought the whole series of the Reapers, but I still need to collect the Dark Kings.  Reading in order is not necessary, but I do suspect that you would enjoy it so much more having read it in order as well as the Dark Kings too!

I learned a whole lot more about the Reapers in this book.  I definitely like the group and their camaraderie.  I loved reading Daire and Ettie's story!  There was tons of mystery and intrigue as well as treachery from Bran.  Both Daire and Ettie deserve happiness though they have both had some hard times especially Daire.  I’m definitely in for reading the whole series!  I can’t wait to read them all!

I highly recommend to any fan of Donna Grant’s work or fae lovers who want a complex world filled with all sorts of paranormal kind!  I can’t wait to see what Donna cooks up next!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I did buy my own copy!!

This is the 2nd book in the Bewitched by the Bear series.  This is a novella length, and it is part of a serial season of her bears.  Please be aware that will serials the endings can be like a cliffhanger, and it is not a complete book like a TV show it is only an episode of the story.  I do have to say that in this case that this serial seems different in the fact that I think you could have just read this story on its own, but it does bring up Tally from book 1.

This was a quick and fun read that I couldn’t put down.  Both Bella and Cade handled some things wrong, but it made for an adventure for sure.  The misunderstandings were comical at times at least from my perspective.  I really liked both of them and want to see what happens next with them!  Marion is the Alpha, and I did see her in action in the first season.  I thought I might not like her in this book, but she changed my mind.  There is a feeling of something building in this series, and I can’t wait to see what it is!

I highly recommend to bear shifter fans who love Violet Vaughn’s style of serials!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Fighter Bear by Zoe Chant (Enforcer Bears #4)





Fighter Bear
Enforcer Bears #4
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A curvy veterinary technician longing for a family + a lonely bear shifter with a wounded heart + a family farm in jeopardy = one exciting rural romance!

When curvy Lily Carmichael wins the lottery, it seems that all of her dreams have come true. It’s just enough money to buy the little farm her uncle left behind. But when she arrives, she finds out that the farm was just sold to a stranger - who turns out to be a gorgeous, charismatic man who leaves Lily breathless from the first moment their eyes meet.

Bear shifter Logan Anders hides from the pain of his past, fearing that he can never regain the trust of the family he tried to protect all his life. Tired of pain and conflict, he’s decided to settle down on a small farm, trying to befriend the skeptical animals who can sense the bear in him. When he recognizes his mate in Lily, it seems as if fate might have shown him a way to find redemption - but can a born fighter like Logan settle down and prove himself worthy of a woman like Lily?

Just when two lonely souls start to teach each other to trust again, and Logan begins to believe that he has a right to a family and happiness, an intruder disturbs the peacefulness of the quiet farm. Can Logan and Lily defend their home and the animals against a mysterious attacker? And can Lily’s love heal Logan’s wounded heart and teach him that it is never too late to return to those who love you?

This is a sizzling hot, standalone BBW bear shifter romance, fourth in the Enforcer Bears series. No cliffhangers!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I buy all of Zoe Chant’s books because I love her HEAs and her style of writing!  I do own this whole series!

The cover is another fabulous addition to the series!

This is the 4th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content!  I recommend reading this series in order because you won’t understand Logan and why he thinks like he does as well.

Lily is feeling like her luck is turning around until she arrives at her uncle’s farm to find it was recently bought.  Logan is living on the outskirts away from his brothers because he doesn’t believe they really need or want him around.  He was forced into a situation trying to protect his family in the one way he could and just tried to survive from that point on.  They both have a journey and adventure to balance and each other.

I highly recommend the series to all bear shifter fans of Zoe Chant’s style of HEAs because if you love her book you want to read them all!

Review @JaneGodman - Wolf Leader by Jane Godman (Arctic Brotherhood #6)





Wolf Leader
Arctic Brotherhood #6
by Jane Godman

Goodreads blurb:  The final book in the new Arctic Brotherhood series--heart-pounding werewolf romances by Jane Godman that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

They are the Arctic Brotherhood.

They are deadly fighters, fierce protectors and loyal mates.


Their sworn enemy is dead, but the Arctic Brotherhood can’t relax. Fenrir, the Norse god of destruction is still determined to destroy the world. Vigo Durand agrees to lead the team against the most feared werewolf the world has ever known, but dark secrets from his past are threatening to catch up with him.

Amber Merova has been on the run for the last five years ago. When she meets Vigo, her werewolf mating impulse almost overwhelms her human instinct for survival. Almost. Feisty, determined, and hostile, Amber initially turns down Vigo’s offer to stay with the Brotherhood. When it looks like the men who murdered her pack have caught up with her, she has no choice but to take his offer of protection.

Both seem damaged beyond repair, but, as they work together to bring down Fenrir, they discover hidden ties that bind them together. Before they can look to the future, they must unravel the mysteries of the past.


About the Author:  Jane Godman writes paranormal romance for Harlequin Nocturne and SMP Swerve, thrillers for Harlequin Romantic Suspense, and steamy historical and gothic romances.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

This is the 6th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  I do highly recommend reading this series in order because you will understand the brotherhood so much more, and it gets better with each book.  I should also mention that there are some sensitive topics like murder, rape, and abuse brought up in this story, so plan accordingly.

Many things happened in this book that I didn’t see coming.  I always like when an author surprises me.  Up until this book, I didn’t know much about Vigo other than he was on the team.  You learn about him in spades this book.  My heart went out to him because of his job, but I don’t want to spoil it for you.  Amber is one tough chick, but she holds herself away from everyone because of her past.  She and Vigo are great together, but I don’t think they realize it until the end.  The brotherhood rocks as always!  I love when people stand up for what they believe in and for each other!

I know this is the last book in this series, but I’m hoping it isn’t the last I will see of these characters and world, but knows!  I highly recommend to wolf shifter fans who believe in fighting for good and finding love even when you aren’t looking for it!
