Hugo never expected his life to go the way it has. He’s only twenty-one, yet here he is, single father to a three-month-old Ennis. His parents aren’t happy he made the decision to keep Ennis, but he’s dealing with everything better than he ever thought he would, and when he meets his mate, he feels everything coming together.

Leo is lucky his son lives in Gillham. With the help of the pack, he managed to beat cancer, and he can now focus on Brian and his mate, Josh, and on rebuilding his life.

Leo tries to stay away from Hugo because he thinks he’s too old. No one else seems to think that’s a problem, or no one who matters, anyway. But will Leo be able to get over his hang-ups and give his relationship with Hugo a chance? The family he’s always wanted is right in front of him. Will he take that opportunity, or will he let his age get the better of him?

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is branched off from Gillham Pack and Whitedell Pride, so I would suggest starting with them.

Leo’s foster son brought him to the pack to live when he had gotten cancer for the second time. Now that he was cancer free, he wanted to start his life over in away. Let his son and his mate have their lives without having to worry about him. He had not expected to find out that he was a mate. Nor the fact that he was over thirty years older than said mate.

Hugo was a single dad of a baby at the age of twenty one. He lived with friends or should I say foster brother and mate, but he wanted a place that would have a bit more room. His parents had not wanted him to keep the baby but they were slowly realizing that was not an option, nor the fact that they thought they were better for the baby. When he found his mate he was happy as hell, but knew it was going to be difficult. Difficult in more ways then one.

This author was one of my favorites and I knew that she would become an automatic buy author. She has not disappointed me in a bit. This series caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. The characters are a blast to read about and their stories are pretty unique.

I had a lot of fun reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. This is one author whom I would recommend for all her books.

Blurb: Twelve years have passed since Tristan and his friends were rescued by the council enforcers and brought to Gillham. Tristan’s friends have adapted. They have full lives, but he doesn’t. He’s still trapped in the grief of losing his mate in the lab they were both locked in, and he hasn’t given himself the opportunity to start healing, isolating himself instead.

Hudson knows exactly what losing a mate does to a person. He lost Paul, his mate, in a car accident twenty-six years earlier, and in many ways, he still feels the pain of that day. When he meets Tristan, he immediately knows he can help him—if not to heal, at least to have a chance to start living again.

Tristan’s shell is hard to break, but Hudson isn’t the kind of man who gives up easily. Still, Tristan has to be the one to choose to take the first step toward healing, or Hudson won’t be able to do anything for him. Will Tristan’s shroud of grief keep Hudson away, or will Hudson be able to get through to him and talk to his hurting soul?

Review: Each book in Council Enforcers collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is the children from Whitedell Pride and Gillham Pack so I would suggest reading those first.

Tristan is one of the shifters who had been rescued from one of the labs twelve years ago. His mate had been killed and he was still hurting. He had never spoken a word of it to his friends or the pack though. He designed his beautiful home and made it his prison. A prison of pain and guilt.

Hudson had lost his mate over twenty-six years ago to a car accident. So he knows how it feels to loose a mate. So when he meets Tristan, he sees the same pain as he had and still has. He just wants to help the man, but doesn’t expect to fall in love with.

Fascinating story that kept my attention throughout the whole book. It has quite a bit of surprises in it for me, lots of action, excitement and so much more in it. The worlds that this author creates is quite entertaining and somewhat mysterious. The characters are fully developed with quite a bit of attitude backing them up.

I enjoyed reading this story and can’t wait to get my hands on the next one. I would definitely recommend it.

Review: Each book in the Allegheny Shifters collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Levi is a cute little badger shifter who is in need of a husband. He has a secret that is somewhat dangerous to him, he is a carrier. His father, the alpha, sets him up with an asshat bear shifter. To bad the man is a jerk, but damn is he sexy. To bad Levi has a bigger attitude and turns the shifter down. This Leads him to a sexy little shifter who is in danger, Seamus. Wow choices are hard.

Dimitri lets his attitude take over and if I was Levi, I would not give him a second chance. But he is determined to change Levi’s mind, but he is surprised to find out that Levi is changing Dimitri’s attitude. Now if they could just figure out who is trying to kill them both. Or should I say the three of them, surprise and I am not talking about Seamus.

Now my first thoughts with carrier was not pregnancy. It was a nice surprise though and I truly enjoyed it. This story is very catchy and kept my attention throughout. The characters are fully developed and sexy as hell. I like how the author uses unique shifters in her stories. The worlds she creates are unique in themselves and quite a blast to live in.

I had a lot of fun reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. Catherine Lieven’s is one of my top favorite authors and I am glad to see that she is still one.

Blurb: Sometimes the best thing in your life is the result of the worst thing that happened to you.

Ned is fleeing New York—and Paris, one of his one-night stands who can’t take no for an answer. He goes back home to Gillham, hoping Paris won’t find him, but not really believing it. The last thing he expected was to meet his mate. He’s only twenty-two, and he has a stalker. What is he going to do with a mate?

Luke didn’t think he had a mate until he met Ned. He was created in a petri dish and raised as a killer until the pack rescued him when he was seven, and he is neither human nor shifter. To add to his weirdness, he’s a virgin, and he’s not interested in sex.

Ned keeps Luke at arm’s length, especially after Paris manages to find him and threatens his best friend, Amy. It gets harder and harder to stay away from Luke, though, and Ned is torn between the need to be with his mate and the need to keep Luke safe.

Will Ned be able to find a compromise? Will Paris be stopped in time, or will he manage to separate Ned and Luke before they even get a chance to be together?

This series is the children from Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack and Council Enforcers, so I would suggest reading those first.

Luke is one of those kids that was created in a lab and turned into a killer. Having been rescued as a child and raised in the pack. He is now working as a deputy for the police department in Gillham. He doesn’t really have an interest in sex and he is a bit stiff. What he had not expected to find was his mate. A mate that acted like he didn’t want him.

Ned was running away from college. He has someone after him and needs his family. To find his mate should bring him happiness, but he is human. He is also only a young man and doesn’t want to settle down, but mostly it is to protect his family. He should know that Luke can take care of himself.

Most of the time they have their serious tones but there is quite a bit of humor mixed in with them that make them even more fascinating for me. Each story will have danger, excitement, adventure and some hot fun sexy times.

I love how Catherine puts together a book that will draw you in and keep you captivated all the way to the end. Catherine has become one of my favorite authors, and I am glad to see that it will never change. This is one book I would recommend.

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is actually branched off from different series. I would suggest reading Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack and Council Enforcer’s first. It gives you back ground into some of the characters you will come across. Not to mention on who Sterling and Adam are and their fathers.

Sterling has met his mate but wants to take time before bonding. Then tragedy strikes and his idea of freedom is but a glimmer in the sun. Sterling’s parents were killed in a car accident and it left him alone to raise twin six year olds and a grouchy teenager, or so he thought. He has the help of not only his pack, but his mate’s pride and his mates family. Not to mention the fact that he has his mate to help.

Adam is younger than his mate by two years, but he knows that he will help his mate with anything. He had not expected to become a family right off the bat, let alone help raise three kids. However he knows that his family will help them all the way. Now he just has to show Sterling that he means it.

As usual Catherine has given us an amazing story with quite a bit of action, suspense, tender moments and some sexy times. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. My attention as usual had been caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

I would definitely recommend it and in fact the whole series.

Blurb: Colin has been living half a life for the past twenty years, ever since his father caught him kissing William. Instead of standing up for their relationship, Colin allowed William to be thrown in jail and married the woman his father chose for him. He loves his two sons and even Justine, but they were never meant to be together, and they’ll never be truly happy as a couple. That suits Colin just fine because he doesn’t deserve to be happy. His son Brandon does, though, and when Colin’s father decides to arrange a marriage for him, Colin finds the courage he never thought he had and finally stands up to him.

A half-shifter created in a lab, Matt has been working undercover for the past fifteen years with very little time as his real self in between cases. When he gets shot and realizes he won’t be able to go back to his job, he’s surprisingly relieved. He’ll finally have time to be himself and to cultivate his relationship with the few friends he managed to make in between jobs. And best of all, he’s met his mate. Maybe now they can get to know each other and see what’s possible.

Things aren’t that easy, though. Even after Matt and Colin talk, Colin is still married, still guilt-ridden over the pain he caused William, and still terrified of his father. Justine finds her courage first and tells Colin it’s time for them to get divorced. He agrees—but can he overcome his terror and stand up for himself and his mate?

Review: Each story in the Council Enforcers collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This particular series is branched off from several other series featuring the same crossover characters in many of the books.

Colin has made several mistakes in his life but his biggest was when he lied and the man he was in love with was imprisoned. He was afraid of his father and most important, moving forward. He had been forced into marriage and having children, but now it was time to come clean. He had a mate, a male mate. A mate that had been created in a lab.

Matt was an enforcer and always went undercover to get the truth. That is until someone realizes who and what he was. So he needs to learn how to duck better. He was tired and ready for a change, and when that change includes his mate he is all for it.

I had never really liked Colin but his story is quite interesting and very entertaining. He definitely comes off as a wimp until the very end when he shows his strength. This story gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. Danger, excitement, cranky teenagers, feisty soon to be ex-wives, some hot sexy times and well you can find out. I couldn’t put the book down and will admit that this story is one of those that will be read more than once.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: Milo has had enough. He’s always loved his job as a PA, at least until his old Boss, Noel, moved to Wyoming to be with his mate. Now Milo has been saddled with Baron MacDowell, shark lawyer and asshole extraordinaire, and he can’t take it anymore. He decides to call Noel to see if his old job is still available, and to his relief, it is. He didn’t expect it to come complete with a mate, though.

The warehouse where the council assassins live is on lockdown. Someone tried to kill one of them, and there’s a hit out on all their heads. It’s not the best moment for North to meet his mate, but there’s no way he’s rejecting Milo, not when he’s been jealous of Roark and Armand since they each found their better half.

Milo and North’s relationship is easy, and they both settle into it as naturally as breathing. There’s still someone trying to kill North and the other assassins, though. Between that, the news that North’s cousins are still alive after he thought they were dead for the past eighteen years, and Evan who’s behaving weirdly, Milo and North are going to have to learn to navigate their new life together—if they both survive, that is.

Milo loved his job or he did when he worked for Noel. Now not so much, and he knew he needed to get away. Oh the job was not dangerous just his boss was one of the biggest asshats ever created. A coworker and his bestfriend both said the same thing, call Noel and ask for help. He just had not expected to meet North.

North and the rest of the assassins had hits put out on them and they were all grounded. So when Noel had a problem, North jumped at the chance to go along. He had not expected to find his mate. However they had someone giving out their location to the killer, so protection just went up.

I have always loved this authors work and can honestly admit that she never fails to deliver. I love the unique type of shifters and paranormal’s in her books. While the story is not unique, it does have some amazing twists to it. The stories always give me everything I could ask for in a story. It gives you action, excitement, adventure, danger and some hot sexy times plus a bit more. My attention was caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it will be one of those that will be read more than once. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and would definitely recommend it.

Review: Francis saves the day!! Dorran and Eli are having a few troubles in their relationship, but the love is going strong. Eli doesn’t want to bring Dorran over to is place and Dorran is trying to figure out what he is hiding from him. Secrets never go the way you want to, but wait till you find out what he is hiding. Trust me you will laugh your ass off. When Chris calls and tells Dorran that he is in big trouble, as in murder, well you can guess Dorran runs to help. Of course you can guess who tags along. Francis saves the day!! I will let you figure out that part.

I will say that I pretty much knew who the killer was, even without Francis’ help. However as always it was a pretty amazing story. It caught my attention and had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. I absolutely love Francis, as you can probably guess. Ghost just keep me smiling. Now for a bit there I was ready to deck Eli, but once I found his secret, I basically called him a old softy. This story gives you action, danger and some fun hot sexy times with a bit of touchy feely from a ghost. I wonder if he does watch them when they are getting good.

I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. This is one of those books that will be read more than once. And I can guarantee that you will be enchanted also. I would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Brandon has all the problems eighteen-year-old guys have—an overbearing mother, a little brother he could do without, and two slightly pushy best friends. When he goes dancing one night, he doesn’t expect to find himself with more problems—and a mate.

Maddox is a loner, and he likes it. He trusts his numerous pets more than most humans, but some people don’t allow him to push them away, like Asher, his coworker and best friend. Asher is the only reason Maddox finds himself dragged to the club even though he hates crowds and dancing. And when he steps into the bathroom and realizes something is happening in one of the stalls, the evening takes a turn for the worse. Someone drugged his mate and assaulted him.

Brandon knows he was lucky Maddox stepped in when he did, but when the man who drugged him escapes before being taken to the council jail, he expects things to go south. He’s not sure why Maddox offers him to stay at his house, since he clearly loves living alone, but he’s not about to say no to the possibility of getting to know his mate better, even though Maddox keeps him at arm’s length.

But the man who drugged Brandon is on the run, and he’s coming for Brandon. Will Maddox be able to keep his mate safe—even from himself? Or will he break Brandon’s heart before losing him?

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is branched off from Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack, and Council Enforcers. For the full impact I would start with book one in the Whitedell Pride series.

Brandon has a very over protective mother who pretty much acts like a crazy nancy around him. When he is drugged and attacked he is rescued by his mate, but his mother needs a Valium. When the man escapes from transport, Brandon must go into hiding. Guess who he gets to hide out with.

Maddox was fifteen when his parents kicked him out for being gay and it seemed to just stick with him. He trusted no one to stick around so other than a couple of friends, well lets just say he has some fuzzy babies that are adorable. When he comes across his mate getting attacked he does what any mate will do, but he just has no clue what else to do about it.

I will admit that I am not really a big fan of this particular series but only because it comes off more like a youth book than the other three series. The characters seem more weak and needy than their parents. Which would make sense if it was for the youth readers. There is a mention of sex but you don’t really get any sexy times in the story. However other than my issues with it, this one had action, danger, a twist that you wouldn’t expect and some really cute cuddles. It is perfect for when you are just needing a good book to read. I actually think I liked Brandon more than Maddox though. However his love of animals is a big hit for Maddox. Always loved a man with an animal.

I enjoyed it quite a bit and can’t wait to see what the next book has in it. It is one of those series that will be read many times over.

Blurb: Sometimes trust is all it takes.

Evan’s life is hell—he’s betrayed the trust Win and the other council assassins have in him, and he’s allowed one of his marks to manipulate and blackmail him. He’s not sure how to get out of the situation, or if it’s even possible. He doesn’t have time to deal with the fact that he lives with his mate and that he’s been ignoring Greg for a while.

Greg has known Evan is his mate since he arrived at the warehouse. He’s stayed away because he can understand why Evan avoided him while he was still seventeen, but he’s eighteen now, and he at least wants to know if there’s the possibility of a future for them.

Greg’s push unravels the lies Evan has been building, and his secret comes to light. Will the other assassins—his family—forgive him for what he’s done? Will Greg? Or will Evan find himself alone against the threat of his blackmailer and the people who are still trying to kill the assassins?

Review: Each book in the collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This particular story is also tied to the Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack and the Council Enforcer’s series. I would start with the Whitedell Pride series and go from there if you want the full impact.

Evan has a secret that just might get him kicked out of the only home he truly knew. He had disobeyed several orders but he just wanted to keep everyone safe. He let his mark live and then be used by the same man. He has also been staying away from his mate trying to figure this out.

Greg was not an assassin so he didn’t truly know what they went through. However he knew his mate and wanted him. To bad his mate was being difficult. He knew about life being difficult so he had the patience. He had been one of the kids who were saved from those who just wanted pets. Guess it is time for a bit of spying and a lot of help.

As I am a fan of this series I was a bit let down with this particular story. I know why Greg did what he did but I felt that it was not a good plan. Other than that it was still a pretty good story and can’t wait to see what the next story has going on.

With this story you get action, excitement, danger and some hot sexy times. It didn’t catch my attention like it should have but I can say that it will still be read many times over. The characters didn’t do anything for me but I would say that I did like Greg’s little brother quite a bit.

I did enjoy the story and would recommend it.

Still, when he and his team are sent on a mission in the Brazilian rainforest, he hopes that will give Sasha enough time to make a decision about them.

Sasha realizes he’s made a mistake by pushing Hunter away when Hunter doesn’t come back from the mission. Hunter is stuck in a rainforest crawling with members of the Beasts gang, and he needs help. Will Sasha be able to help him, or will he lose Hunter before he even has him?

His one try at a relationship had ended up in death and he feared loosing another. He was left with memories as well as scars from what had happened. Then his mate ended up in trouble and damn if he wasn’t going to rush in and help.

Hunter loved sex and never with the same man. Then he scented his mate and that all changed. He just didn’t know how to get through to him and how to help him. Then when a mission went bad, well lets just say the shock of his mate stunned him.

I liked the guys quite a bit although I felt more for Sasha. He just pulled to me more than the others. His story was horrible and I understood him better than Hunter. It is an action packed story with quite a bit of excitement and hot sexy times. This is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I was also glad to see Nysys in it, he always makes my day.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

Blurb: Sometimes the best moment of your life becomes the worst.

Grey’s boyfriend just broke up with him—again. Grey’s love life has been a long trail of failed relationships, and he decides drowning his sorrows in alcohol might be a good idea. Turns out it is, although not the way he’d thought.

Patrick was supposed to spend the evening with his son, his ex-wife, and her new husband, but Rose’s daughter is sick, so he makes his way to the bar instead. There, he meets his mate when he rescues him from a pushy man trying to pick him up.

Patrick and Grey spend the night together, and Grey knows his life is about to change. He’d never have imagined how much, though. The day after he and Patrick meet, the body of a man with Grey’s name carved into his chest is found at the entrance of pack territory. Another body appears a few days later, making it clear someone is after Grey, especially after he realizes he’d hooked up with both the victims in the past.

Grey has no idea who the killer is, and Patrick feels at a loss. He’s a detective for the Gillham Police Department, but the only thing he cares about is keeping his mate safe. Will Patrick succeed, or will the killer manage to get his hands on Grey before anyone can stop him?

Grey is not only an eagle shifter but one of the council enforcers that protects the pact and those who need protecting. However it would seem that now he is the one that might need protecting. When men start showing up not only dead but his name carved on him, he needs not only protect himself but those who have had relations with him. He also must protect his newly found mate.

That mate can also kick some ass even though he is human. Patrick is a detective for the police force and can protect those around him. He must work with his mate to find out who is behind this.

I love the stories written by this author and can honestly admit that she is on my automatic buy list. However I have noticed with this one, that it came off as being rushed and missing some good parts. I also knew who the killer was before I even got passed the first chapter. While the guys are hot together, they came together easier then I had expected. The story just felt like it was missing some good highlights that would have made the series stand out more. Also I wished the ending was more.

Other than that it was still an amazing story that will be read many times over. I just hate to admit that it is becoming old in more ways then one. There was just no spark to it. Now as for the characters, well they were hot as usual. And damn if they are not protective of each other. But even they were missing the heat that they should have had.

I did enjoy reading it and would recommend it.

Luke was one of the three kids found and rescued several years ago in a lab. They were not born but created. They had the same gifts as many of the paranormal’s but could not shift into an animal. He knew they could get mates, but for some reason he believed he wouldn’t get one. After a wicked night at the club where a guy OD’d, he found his mate. A mate that he ran from.

Felix has lived as a human since birth, but he was in fact half human and half demon. His mother had been full demon but the moment she married his human father, the other demons had cast her out of their realm. For some reason she wanted him to mate a full blood demon thinking it would get them back home. However he had met his mate or at least he was told he did. Demon’s didn’t have mates, so it was a nice surprise to find out that he was a shifters mate.

Then there was a drug out there that worked on shifters but also either killed them or turned them into rabid animal’s. Of course even after it turned them rabid, they still died. Now they needed to figure out what was going on. As alway Catherine has given me an amazing read. Excitement, action packed, danger filled and let’s not forget those sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story.

Now for the downside, it just ends. It didn’t even give me any warning but just ended. It was a bit disappointing and a letdown. However that won’t stop me from reading it over and over. I can’t wait till I get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: Jessie rejected his mate years before, and he’s regretted it ever since. He knows Ezra is probably better off without him, though, and he hasn’t tried to reach out to him. Instead, he’s been dating women who won’t remind him of the man he lost through his own fault.

Ezra has been staying away from Gillham and Jessie, just like Jessie asked him to do twelve years before. He’s become an enforcer, and Whitedell has been his home for the past decade.

That changes when their old alpha escapes from the council jail, wanting revenge on the two men who put him there—Jessie and his twin brother, Max. Ezra can’t stay away when his mate is in danger, so he goes back to Gillham.

When Jessie finds out Ezra is there, he realizes he’s been given a second chance to be with his mate. He needs to make things right with him, though, and it won’t be an easy task, not when Alpha Reddings is out to kill him.

Will Jessie manage to get Ezra to forgive him? And will Ezra be able to keep his mate safe?

I hate to admit this, but for a short while there I had lost my enthusiasm for reading. The books were coming out the same and was just a bit boring to me. Then Catherine put Jessie out, and bam it didn’t last long at all. I could take a nice long breath and got my love back for my guys. Although these two really did need a smack in the head. Men sure are a bit slow on the uptake sometimes.

Jessie and Ezra were mates, but Jessie was a jerk and rejected it a while back. He was bound and determined to find a female with. To bad he was into men, can’t keep something like that hidden from yourself for to long. He regretted what he did ever since then and he was not happy. However he was also not going to let Ezra know. He felt like a fool to say the least.

Ezra missed his mate something fierce. They were not only mates but friends at one point. Then the alpha they put away was planning on going after Jessie and his brother. Ezra might be a council enforcer but he was not going to let anything happen to his family. Now all they need to do is to learn how to talk to one another. Jessie has been given a second chance.

Exciting, enticing, adventure, danger, hot sex and damn could you ask for more. I had a lot of fun reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. It was a big hit with me.

That is one of the best things about this author, the characters are so different from one another. You not only get your wolves and felines, but so many other types as well. I came across Catherine’s books when she wrote her first book for Whitedell Pride series. I fell in love with the characters right from the start. And now we get the children’s love story twelve years in the future. They have grown up and boy can you see it. Asher knew his best friend Terry was his mate when they were still kids. Fear of loosing him, he never said a word. Then when he lost his mother, and Terry started dating girls, well he just kept his mouth shut. Secrets never stay secret for to long though.

Terry has broken up with his girl friend and needs to go home to unwind. When he was a kid, he hated the life they were living. His mother was gone, and his human father was a shifters mate. Not only a shifter but a man at that. Boy did he give them hell. Time changes things slowly though. His best friend was a wolf shifter and he loved him. So Terry was keeping secrets as well. These two just need to figure it out, and boy do they ever.

A little bit of danger added in and this story just rocked perfectly. I loved the excitement, danger, lust and story line. It is going to make a great start to a new series and I can not wait to get my hands on the next story. I do love when an author gives us a look into the future with the kids. Gives a new start to life better I would say. I had a lot of fun with this and would definitely recommend it.

Yet when Jarah asks him for help, he decides he’ll do what he has to do to keep his best friend and the pack where some of his old tribe members live safe, even if that includes killing the Los Angeles pack’s alpha.

Kanan never expected to meet his mate, not when he spends so much of his time in his room. But when he meets Titus in the woods, he knows he can’t hide away from their bond—and he doesn’t want to. Will he manage to get through the anger Titus has shrouded himself in? And will Titus find a way to break the thick walls Kanan built around his heart?

That is one of the best things about this author, the characters are so different from one another. You not only get your wolves and felines, but so many other types as well. Take Kanan, he is a very cute red panda. Just look at those cheeks of his and that adorable nose. He had been rescued from a lab but is still quite afraid of everyone. Well that is until he finds his mate. A mate that is planning to marry a woman. Talk about a shock to the system.

Titus was one the leader of his people, but that changed when he sent in his friend to kill the alpha. Now he need to protect his people and start his tribe over. That included marrying a female and getting her pregnant, talk about gross. That changes when he meets his mate and gets a lecture from his friends. He just needs to get over the past and look towards the future. And his future was with a little shifter who had been captured, tortured, experimented and caged by scientist.

Now rumor has it that this is the last book for this series but the author has come up with another branch off in a way. So I hate to see this series end but look forward to the future characters later on. It is a very exciting story and these two were a big hit. Both of them anti-social but for good reasons. You mix them together and what do you get, one hell of a good story. I had a lot of fun with it. I would definitely recommend this series.

sequential order.

I came across this author probably around two years ago and have followed her work since then. Her stories always intrigue me so much that I usually read them more than a dozen times each. In fact with each book that comes out I will go back and read the previous stories before reading the new one. The characters are a surprise and definitely crack me up. Now with this one, it goes in a different direction sort of.

Many years ago, shifters thought that the human’s would accept them into their world. They found out just how wrong they were. Either you were slaughtered or thrown into a cage for life. Many shifters were born in captivity, such as Keating and Emmett. However there were some that managed to escape the life and were called free shifters. Free shifters who tried to rescue all that they could.

Keating is a rare white tiger shifter who was born in captivity. Him and his best friend Emmett, have never really seen the outside world. Now they were rescued and he wanted to experience it all. That included falling in love, to bad his choice was a man who loved another.

Rodrick had been in love with Sully from the beginning, but never knew the feeling was accepted. So he had taken to Keating and fell in love once more. Too bad Sully isn’t to happy. That is until their worlds are about to get interesting, Rodrick wants them to be a threesome couple.

Then the horrible happens and Sully is shot. Well you’re just going to have to read the story if you want more details. Trust me you will want to read it, might just make your day.

Now with this story I had thought that the first book was a bit stiff and figured it was just a new beginning to a series. However this one didn’t seem to smooth out as much as it should have. It was still a good read, but just felt off to me for some reason. Doesn’t mean I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book though. Just going to have to wait and see how they go.

Blurb: Is what others think of you really that important?

Caleb and his friends have been in Gillham for months, but the memories of what happened to him in the lab still torture him. He took the habit of sleeping in the forest in his chinchilla form to avoid waking his friends with his nightmares. One night, he finds a man under his tree, and that man is his mate.

Freddy knows most of the pack doesn’t like him. He used to be a drug dealer, and while he did it so his brother stayed out of that life, he knows it’s not a good enough excuse. He’s not angry at the way the pack treats him, and when he meets his mate, he expects Caleb to behave the same way.

He doesn’t. Caleb’s friends aren’t enthusiastic of Freddy being his mate, though, and when one of them makes it clear that he expects Freddy to do everything to keep Caleb safe from his father—even if that means dying—Freddy decides he’s right and decides to confront his dad.

There is nothing better then a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. They are entertaining and have just the right mix of feelings in them. There is also quite a bit of danger or excitement in it as well. This one caught my attention and kept it all the way to the very end. I love the mixture of characters that this story and the other ones have in it. Will always keep you entertained.

Caleb is a very cute little chinchilla shifter who has been hurt. Him and his friends were together in a lab, and then escaped. They had not known those who were doing the rescuing were the good guys, so they ran. That is until the same rescuers saved their butt’s when they were stealing food from a fae group. He always put a smile on his face and joked around, but it was hiding his true feelings. Feelings that forced their way out in his nightmares. That was why he chose to seep in a tree. A tree that his mate sat under.

Freddy did everything he could to keep his brother not only safe but out of the criminal lifestyle. He just hadn’t expected his little brother to be saving his ass and bringing him back to the Gillham pack. He was an ex drug dealer who was trying to stay on the right path, but his past was coming for him.

I love the way this author puts together a story that not only draws you in but keeps you entertained as well. They have a serious tone to them, but there is a bit of humor floating around. I do get a kick out of the whole thing. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Many shifters were born in captivity, such as Emmett. However there were some that managed to escape the life and were called free shifters. Free shifters who tried to rescue all that they could.

Emmett had been born in a zoo, but had been taken away from his mother at the age of twelve. He has never known freedom or what the outside world was like. Forced to try to get a female pregnant, he knew his death was soon to come. Then Levin showed up to save him and another.

Levin has been free all his life and made it is life to rescue those who were caged up. He just hadn’t expected to fall for the little guy. However life is not all about understanding, because Emmett was having a hard time adapting to his new life. Then a young shifter decides to go outside where the hunter’s were and got lost. No one will listen, so it is up to Emmett to save the day.

This sounded like a fascinating story but it doesn’t seem to flow as smoothly as the rest of Catherine’s books do. It just seemed a bit off to me, but was still a very fascinating book. I loved the worlds this author creates and the characters rock. It caught my attention and kept it to the end of the story.
