The world ends not with a bang, but with a downpour. Tornadoes spin through the heart of London, New York cooks in a heat wave that melts tarmac, and Russia freezes under an ever-thickening layer of permafrost. People rally at first—organizing aid drops and evacuating populations—but the weather is only getting worse.
In Durham, mild-mannered academic Danny Fennick has battened down to sit out the storm. He grew up in the Scottish Highlands, so he’s seen harsh winters before. Besides, he has an advantage. He’s a werewolf. Or, to be precise, a weredog. Less impressive, but still useful.
Except the other werewolves don’t believe this is any ordinary winter, and they’re coming down over the Wall to mark their new territory. Including Danny’s ex, Jack—the Crown Prince Pup of the Numitor’s pack—and the prince’s brother, who wants to kill him.
Blurb:Darius Lyall fled his hometown five years ago under suspicion of murder. Now Sheriff Ash Rawling seeks to clear his name. Will Darius find a way to love Ash without accidentally tearing him limb from limb during the next full moon?
Sheriff Ashton Rawling never expected to see Darius Lyall back in town. Five years ago, just as their friendship seemed poised to turn into something more, Darius fled the small northern town of Moon Lake under suspicion of brutally murdering a local man whose body was found on Lyall property.
Now Darius has returned to celebrate the twenty-first birthday of his youngest brother at their family’s forest cabin. The moment he sees Ash, the old attraction sparks between them. Ash knows he must solve the murder for their relationship to have a chance. Darius must find a way to love Ash without accidentally tearing him limb from limb during the next full moon.
Review: Darius returns to his hometown to help his brother celebrate his 21st birthday, but his return stirs up trouble as most of the town believe him to be a murderer. Ash is the town sheriff who is trying to keep the peace, but as he butts heads with half the town and Darius, he has to solve a five year old murder to prove Darius’s innocence.
This is a really good shifter story that shows shifters in a more animalistic light. Darius and Ash are two men who five years ago were best friends, but when Darius disappeared without a word, Ash began to doubt his friend’s innocence. now Darius is back and Ash has to prove his innocence before the town turns into an ugly mob. These two characters strike sparks off each other. The attraction is strong and the sex between them is hot!
Darius tries his best to keep Ash at a distance because he has a secret to hide. But not the one that Ash thinks. And when Ash discovers his secret, he is torn between fascination and terror. I have got to say that this version of shifter sounds painful and horrible and who don’t recognize anyone in their shifted form. I like the way it is portrayed and the fact that the brothers are not happy to be shifters. The progression of the story is good and moves smoothly and the mystery of the murder is easy to solve when Ash has all the clues and the answers came from an unexpected source.
With this one I will recommend to those who want a more down to earth shifter story, who love a bit of mystery, who love hot sex and a happy ending.
Blurb: Humane Officer Derek Williams has been toying with the idea of asking out Brian O’Donogue since the veterinarian started working at the Pet Rescue Center two years ago. So why hasn’t he made his move? It’s complicated… but it has something to do with the fact that Derek occasionally likes to run around on four legs instead of two.
Recovering from an abusive relationship and hiding supernatural abilities of his own, Brian takes a chance and agrees to go on a date with Derek. The ensuing relationship is better than either of them could have hoped—until a rogue wolf shifter attacks Brian while he’s walking his dogs. The abrupt attack forces Derek to confront his feelings, but the danger isn’t over. The rogue shifter is out there, and he’s hunting them.
Review: I found this book a refreshing change from other books in this Genre, Derek Williams and Brian O’Donogue have worked side by side for two years both of them secretly wanting the other, neither has dared as they both have secrets. Both these men love animals dearly with Derek rescuing them and feeling anger and pain at the cruelty of humans to the defenseless animals. Wishing that he could treat the humans who did the cruelty, the same as they treated the animals. Brian handling them with love, care and gentle hands as he treats them.
You can see the great respect that these two men have for each other and how it has built up over time into love. These two men seem to be perfect for each other and I’d have to say that this is a genuine romance with a little bit of danger thrown in.
If you want a shifter story where it’s not insta mates, insta love and insta sex then this is the book for you, it has a good solid storyline throughout (although I would have liked to know why the rogue’s scent was familiar to Derek) and the sex is hot.
I genuinely liked this book and would recommend it to all my friends.
