The picture is a close-up of a gorgeous Native American man. His long, black hair moves with the wind and flows against his right shoulder. His dark eyes are looking straight at you, and you can almost feel them on your skin. His arms are crossed on his hairless chest, and there’s a barbed wire tattoo wrapped around his upper right arm. His plump, pink lips are highlighted by the dark stubble on his cheeks.
Dear Author,

I have never ventured far from home. Being a shifter keeps me from becoming a part of society, but it seems that society is beginning to infringe on my territory. They, the humans, are all so full of themselves and think they are entitled to my land. But there is one man, who stands up to the others, who stands on his own… he draws my attention. Why?



P.S. I would prefer a non-wolf shifter, but something strong. I would like for the human to be a smaller, more flamboyant man. Please no rape or torture. And I really want an HEA.

Review: I found myself chuckling a few times throughout this story with Kangee’s, a raven shifter, brooding and Jase’s nonstop comments. It’s not a normal pack story per se but more of two people getting to know one another and discovering who they truly are. I loved both MC’s in this book as they seemed opposites.

I also loved the fact that Rangee’s raven courted Jase when Kangee seemed unsure. These two seemed to really hit it off after a while and I so enjoyed reading about them. I just wish the story had been longer.

Sweet short story with lots of attitude that I loved.

Great read.

A young man and a wolf appear close together. The young man is dark-haired the wolf has pure white fur and amber eyes. The young man is holding the wolf close to himself in an almost possessive manner. They seem like they belong together.
Dear Author,

I am an Alpha werewolf who has been looking for his mate. Until I find him (yes, I am gay, my pack is pretty much open to sexuality), I am allowed to have fun with other guys. I’m known as a player but that’s okay because once I find my mate, my wolf and I will be truly monogamous.

Then I find him. My mate (You can decide how we meet— make it meet-cute type). But then my mate says that he is an asexual. What the hell? What does he mean, asexual? Does he mean that I cannot have sex with him ever? That he will never enjoy sex with me? How can I make him fall in love with me then?

But my wolf and I are determined to romance my mate; even if I have to join AVEN forum (which I thought at first as forum for AVIAN shifters) and talk around to couples with asexual lovers for tips. Because I will have my HEA with him, right, dear author?

Thank you.



PS: No D/s or BDSM, no “baby” as endearment please!! (And keep the endearment on the minimum, I dislike excessive endearment), and no sex before halfway (remember, the mate is an asexual!!), and I prefer a kind of humorous type of story about a werewolf who wants to woo his asexual mate

Review: Cute and sweet story. It was intriguing reading about an alpha wolf and his asexual mate and how they coped with it. Though some of the story seemed a little off and others seemed rushed nevertheless it was interesting reading about Aidan and Brandon circumstances as they grow closer. I would have preferred more of Aidan’s point of view as the story was mostly told in Brandon’s.

Brandon and Aidan seemed made for each. I loved both characters personalities throughout. It was an enjoyable read on a subject I was not really familiar with. It was informative and a delight to read although at times I was confused.

Good read.
