Blurb: Out of the Cage: A new wolf shifter enforcer accompanies his alpha to San Francisco on a rescue mission, but he discovers something even more valuable than a new pack.

Mishka Fadgen is new to the Stone Ridge wolf pack, and after losing a challenge to earn the beta position, he’s offered a slot as an enforcer instead. His first task comes soon, as the alpha’s daughter, Sara, goes missing from college. Mishka accompanies several others to San Francisco, following a lead to her whereabouts. While his alpha is busy consulting with a detective who’s aware of shifters, Mishka hits the streets and starts searching. What he finds, however, isn’t what he expected—his mate. Mishka discovers a young, crippled human living in an abandoned warehouse. With a lot of coaxing—and the promise of a good meal and a hot shower—Mishka convinces Aramis to join him at the home the shifters have rented. When the detective shows up, an untrusting Aramis disappears. Learning that Aramis may be able to help discover Sara’s whereabouts only heightens his need to find the man once more. If Mishka manages to track Aramis down again, can he convince his mate that his intentions are sincere and not just a means to an end?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Sara and Stephanie have been kidnapped. You can guess the alpha and his mate are going nuts. Mishka was asked to go along also to help. Out on a ride to get a feel of the place leads him to the best scent, his mate. Although he might have a bit of a problem.

Aramis was kicked out of his home at the age of fourteen and had been living in an old abandoned building. His leg and wrist had been injured and never healed right add that in with being homeless and he has a bit of fear of others. However being offered food and shower would turn anyone’s head.

Now this is what I am taking about. Action, danger, excitement and some sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story. I loved how the guys are with their mates and damn if it is not hot. This world the author has created is a big hit with me and sometimes gives me some good dreams in the evening. The characters are strong and the story sweet.

I loved this story and can guarantee that it will be read many times over. I can’t wait for the next book in this series and I would definitely recommend it.

Review: CEO Michael gets a call about a hacker on his way home for the holidays. His assistant Giles tells him that Cole Burns, who works from his home is perfect the job and living close by. As fate would have it Michael and Cole are mates.

There is some uncertainty between the two after Michael explains things and Cole for his part tries to process everything. I liked the story.

Blurb: Toby has known little more than loneliness since he was taken from his home and his family was killed. He’s a prisoner, forced to heal the members of the gang that bought him from the men who kidnapped him.

Until he’s not.

Camden didn’t expect to find out that Sam’s brother, the brother who was sold to a gang, is his mate. He’s not sure where to go from here. Toby is understandably wary and cautious, and most of the time, he won’t let Camden close enough to talk to him. Camden doesn’t have a problem giving him the time and space he needs, but they might not have much of it.

When the envoy from another pack arrives and demands Camden give up one of the unicorn shifters, Camden refuses, even though he knows the Rosewood pack doesn’t stand a chance. The pack is small, and its members aren’t warriors. He’s not about to give Toby or Sam up, but he has no idea how his people are going to deal with this—or if they’ll make it out alive.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Toby and his brother are very rare shifters and very unique. When their parents were killed they were told to run, but only Toby managed it, so he thought. He had been taken and sold to gangs to be their healers. Hell he didn’t even know if he wanted to be one. Then another group showed up and rescued him.

Camden is an alpha of a small pack but Toby’s brother was one of them. So he did what any good alpha would do, he rescued the sexy man. Then he realizes that Toby is his mate. Things are going to get interesting real fast.

I like the unique shifters you see in this story. They are cute and funny in a way but also scared of what would happen. It is a cute story with a bit of action. Although it was only a bit of action which was a bit disappointing. It also ended in a bit of a cliffhanger which drove me nuts. It comes off rushed and leaves you hanging. It felt like it was going to slow and nothing major happened. I mean you have a threat, worry to death, rush a wedding and then all of a sudden it was done. No true fight was seen in the story.

I hate to admit it but I was a bit disappointed in the story. It just left me wanting more.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge 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 start but there were many different series that are connected to this.

Castrose and his brother Clayton are assassins and damn good at their job. They are very close but Clayton is the one that doesn’t border on being truly bad. Now Clayton is missing and Castrose is going to get him back. He just had not expected to the one being hunted since he was the hunter. He also didn’t expect the sexy man to tell him they are mates.

Eion was talked into hunting with his family and in fact lost a bet because of it. However today is a damn good day for it to happen, he has found his mate. A mate with a sniper’s rifle aimed at his alpha’s house, maybe might not be the best day for it either.

It has been a long time since I have gotten to read one of these stories. I use to love getting to read them and loosing myself in their world. The only true downside to them is that they are not long enough to truly get lost in them. They are full of action and danger plus lets not forget to say sexy times. I liked the characters quite a bit. Although I do think that they give in to soon to the love side of things.

It is a very enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing what is next in this amazing series.

When a number of others find their Fate-given mates, he doesn’t give finding his own much thought—until he scents the most alluring aroma in a big, handsome human named Waylon Davison. Discovering his mate has a boyfriend doesn’t deter Colton. Instead, he lifts Waylon’s wallet and, with the help of friends, plans his strategy for wooing the man. After learning his human is disturbingly cowed by his boyfriend, Colton realizes Waylon has more to overcome than the shock of discovering that shifters exist. Even if Colton can convince Waylon to dump his jerk of a boyfriend, can he convince his human that entering a pairing with a man chosen by Fate isn’t a new prison?

Review: Colton has found his mate and his mate has a boyfriend. Colton is a seahorse shifter and works at World of Aquatica. He hadn’t always lived there but when he was eaten by a squid well he took that as a sign. Now he loved it. All he had to do is to figure out how to get his mate to leave his boyfriend.

Waylon is a big beautiful man with a big heart. To bad his boyfriend is a possessive jerk. However when he through a fit at Waylon’s work it seemed a good idea to dump the asshat. When he say Colton while out on a date things were starting to get a bit strange, just wait till he finds out why.

Charlie has always been an amazing author and her stories just keeps getting better. I loved the idea of a seahorse shifter and the story just about rocked my world. The only problem is that they are so short that leaves me wishing for more. I could have done with out the possessive jerk and his friends, but they made the story a bit stronger I would say.

Now I can honestly say that these are stories that will be read many times over. In fact they make me want to go read the whole series once more. I get a kick out of them and this was no different. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: Pryderi has known Nate was his mate for weeks—way too long not to tell him. But Pryderi grew up with rejection, and he isn’t sure he has the courage to possibly face it again, especially coming from the man he’s been falling in love with from afar and who represents his future. He’s not going to gain anything by watching Nate from afar, though.

Nate’s world gets upended over just a few days. First Pryderi, the cute Nix he’s noticed more than he likes to admit, tells him they’re mates, then the brother he thought was dead for the past ten years suddenly comes back with the Beasts after him. Nate isn’t sure how to deal with any of them, but Calvin has always been the center of his world, and that hasn’t changed.

Pryderi has a hard time getting through to Nate, who’s terrified of losing him like he thought he’d lost his brother. The fact that Pryderi is working undercover in Nate’s bar to try to find the last members of the Beasts still in town is making things both worse and better—and more than a little complicated.

Review: Each book in the 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 connected to the Whitedell Pride and Gillham Pack so I would suggest reading those first.

Ten years ago Nate’s little brother had been kidnapped and killed. He was still missing him to this day, boy is he in for one hell of a surprise. He was a forty-two year old man who owned a bar and had a bad back. He was not a catch in his eyes. However he has had his eyes on one sexy Nix that comes into the bar.

Pryderi left his family and people behind four years ago. He had not wanted to stay and mate with a female just to have a child and keep his parents happy. He has found his mate and wasn’t to sure how to tell him. He had been rejected by his parents and his brother didn’t truly want anything to do with him. That is until he gets a call, his brother had been abducted close to a month ago and he had not known.

Nate has issues with his mate doing the job as an enforcer. He still felt the loss of his brother, even though his brother is back, but he still was scared. Damn these two really need to learn how to communicate. I always am intrigued by the world this author creates. They just make it seem like you are right there with them and are kicking ass right along side them. It is a pretty fascinating series to get hooked on.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on.

Lucas is a sexy wolf shifter who has just found his mate. A mate with a child, looks like he is about to become a dad. Now Lucas is my kind of man, he owns a bookstore and damn if he is not sexy.

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: Ben’s one night stand turned into more. He is a human with a werewolf mate, and a baby on the way. He is not to sure what he is doing or how to feel but with Shad there, things might just be alright.

Shad is an alpha who has taken a human as a mate, and they are expecting. He has his father calling him more times then he can count plus his mother always asking questions. How can one night change everything.

There were so many mistakes in this story that it just stood out, and not in a good way. Also this story is not really a story but a males pregnancy logbook. There was absolutely no heat between the guys and it drove me nuts. There was just no heat throughout the book and it left me wondering what type of book it truly was. There was nothing special that brought this book to my attention or stood out to me.

I hate to say it but this book was a bit boring and I am not sure I will continue with the rest of the series.

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.

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.

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?

Review: Each book in 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 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.

Still, staying with Giles at the Montana cattle ranch gave him the opportunity to escape from under his mother’s thumb.

To his surprise, the ranch’s owners offered him an office position. The only disconcerting aspect came in the form of big, handsome Kase Corrocus.

Review: Each book in A Loving Nip collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In fact I would recommend reading the very first series that leads you to this one. Wolves of Stone Ridge is the starter that many different series branched off, so I would start with that one first. There are about five different series, so you will definitely be entertained.

I came across Charlie when she wrote her very first book for the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and never looked back. You will meet a group of alpha that want the love of their mates. They live many centuries and their mates make their lives better and a bit interesting. 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 a touch of kink to them that will keep your attention the whole time, like it does for me.

Raphael decided to stay at the ranch where his brother made his home at. He couldn’t see what the big deal was, give him a fancy coffee shop anytime. However there was one man on the ranch that might just change his mind. To bad Raphael is not gay.

Kase is one hell of a paranormal who has just found his mate. Now he just has to change the man’s mind. Things are going to get real interesting. I love how Charlie puts together a book that will draw you in and keep you captivated all the way to the end. Charlie 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.

Adam Stephens is a man with a mission. It has been three years since they chopped that malignant brain tumor out of his head, and he is off on a solo motorcycle camping trip through the Appalachian Mountains.

When he rides into the Pine Mountain Tunnel in North Carolina and rides out into another realm—a realm that comes complete with a big sexy grizzly bear shifter, mages, and an evil sorcerer—he isn’t sure he isn’t lying in the tunnel after crashing his bike. Can such a world exist? Or is he dreaming? If he is dreaming…it sure is realistic.

Along the way, there will be some major hurdles to surpass including no indoor plumbing…and no coffee. A man needs some basic luxuries, correct?

Review: Adam seems to go back in time after driving through a tunnel. It was intriguing seeing how Adam dealt with life without the amenities he was used to. Rafe for his part was sexy yet determined. Adam has a lot to deal with when it becomes apparent that he’s to become something more than what he thought he would ever be.

Evil Mages, a shifter/wizard and a group of people willing to do anything for the right person to save a species from the bidding of an evil mage. I absolutely loved it from the picturesque scenery to the battle scenes and everything in between.

Twists and turns abound in this exciting beginning to an amazing series. I am highly looking forward to reading more about Rafe and his group as well as Adam and his.

Fantastic story and highly recommended.

Review: Each book in Kontra’s Menagerie 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 story is connected to Wolves of Stone Ridge, so I would suggest reading those first.

I started reading romance stories when I was a young girl, and have always been drawn to paranormal stories. It was not till a few years ago that I started reading gay romance but I still move towards the paranormal. Charlie Richards hits all my buttons with her books and the worlds she creates are ones that I would love to be in.

Deter and Max are fully developed characters and they make one drool. It is action packed, danger filled and down right fun to read. It caught my attention from the beginning and kept it all the way to the end. This is one of my favorite series and I can not wait to get my hands on the next book.

Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge 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 started it but there are many branch offs that are connected to this particular series.

Gracen has found his mate, a mate that not only is not gay but has a child. He also has no clue that Gracen is a wolf shifter, I would say his eyes are about to be opened wide.

Lance actually knows a few of those Gracen hangs out with but has no clue that half of them are shifters of one kind or another. He is a sexy dad who just wants to keep custody of his two year old daughter.

I had expected a bit more trouble from the ex, it went as expected. I have always loved these stories but there are no more surprises to be found in them. I was hoping for a fresh idea to show up but even then these stories are still pretty amazing. I love how the characters just feel around each other. I didn’t really catch a connection through the kid and Gracen though. There just needed something to make it all come together and I didn’t get that. It just felt a bit stiff.

Other than those issues I still had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book by this author will be about.

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: Embracing magic was only the first step.

Before Kallen, there was Tarragon. Oryon history sees him as the first and greatest of all technomage kings. What history has forgotten, however, is that he was also the very first to partner with a symbiont.

Tarragon altered the face of Oryon’s history when he fully embraced magic and emerged as the first ever technomage king.

At the age of eighteen, Tarragon became clan king by default. Seven years later, with the help of the scorned magicians, Tarragon defeated the Zaruthra and Caprici clans. Not only had he been almost unbeatable on the field of battle, but his political leadership and emerging talent as a mage were evidenced by the fact that his empire would live on for a long time, even after his death, through his children because of the infrastructure and policies he put in place. He took advantage of a more advanced technology but also showed brutality in the execution of his opposition’s leaders. Surrounded by deadly rivals that were intent on eradicating his family, as the last surviving heir, Tarragon, needed to learn how to control his magic and how to fight. Survival was not easy, and if it meant getting involved in a dangerous secret, so be it.

Review: Tarragon is a young man in the middle of a war that took his family in brutal ways. He’s determined not to end the same as his family did against his enemies. Along the way he discovers who and what he is.

I loved this story. It was intriguing reading about Tarragon and all that transpired to make him what he became. There are are many twists and turns as well as revelations that lend a greater understanding as the book progressed.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
