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

The very first book in this series was the first book that I had read by this amazing author. I was impressed then and I am still impressed. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their family and friends with their entire lives.

Burt was a great friend, even though his life was a bit hard with his family. His father was an ass, and he was hurt for it. He was a great friend to the alpha and many of the others, so when he went feral they were shocked. Throughout it, almost ferals are killed or at least imprisoned, but Chris knew he had to find a way around it. So he brought in Cree.

The thing with Cree is that he has the hots for Burt.
Cree has always been a whisperer and knew he could help Burt. He just hadn’t expected to fall for the guy. In his life he was told he could never mate, but with Burt’s help he finds out that not everything is the way it should be.

This is a very fast paced story. The only thing I find repetitive is the war with Rand. It just gets to be a bit old although the ending is a bit different. Even with that, the story was pretty much what I wanted. I was amazed with this story and look forward to reading more by Stephani. It has a touch of humor in a story that has a serious tone to it.

I would definitely recommend this book and the ones before it. It was amazing and I had so much fun reading it.

Review: This is book eleven in this series and they need to be read in order. It not only lets you know who everyone is but an awesome series all the way around. I love the way the characters come together.

Walsh was a ferret shifter and a drug addict. He was slowly dying from the drug tar. He used to keep the pain away, not only the physical pain but also the memories of his past. He had been kicked out by his grandfather when he had found out that his grandson was gay. Taken in by Zaid he had gotten mixed up with the wrong group and gotten addicted. It had gotten to the point that Zaid and Tate had tracked him down and put him in a rehab center for shifters with addictions.

Six months later Walsh was back with the pack. When he comes across Tate again, he has found another reason to stay safe. The other was he wanted to fight for his pack to keep everyone alive. He took a true look at Tate and saw something in him that made him want to believe again and to keep his word of not relapsing. It is a hard road to follow but Tate knew Walsh could do it.

Tate knew the second time he saw Walsh that he wanted this man for his mate. He believed in him and would stand by him no matter what. When they had went and talked to their alpha, Chris had agreed to let Walsh become a soldier. It took a few days but Walsh proved to be an ace. He turned out to be one of the best warriors they had. That surprised Walsh but not as much as the fact that this very sexy man wanted him as a mate.

Stephani always gives me a great story to lose myself into. I was not disappointed in this book. It is the perfect length also. I loved the fact that two sexy men fall in love, and despite their troubles, they seem to overcome all odds. It has the right amount of love, danger, and excitement. It catches your attention from the start and will keep it all the way to the end. I love the paranormal world but when you add in romance, I am a sure sell. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the next book in this amazing series.

Just when they think, all is well, trouble strikes in the worst way possible. It couldn’t happen at a worst time, either. For not only is there the celebration to think about, but the babies are coming.

Review: Once again, Stephanie has made my week. She has an amazing gift to tell stories. She has the ability to bring you such wonderful characters and an intriguing world to just lose yourself in. When times get really hard, I find a story that catches my attention and just read the day away. This story was one of those stories. To get a true feel of every character you really need to start with book one in this series. It was told in such a humorous way that I just about died laughing. There is a bit of seriousness to it though.


Hale, a really cute beagle shifter was mated to a big, bad leopard assassin. Toby loved his little mate with everything in him. It doesn’t hurt that the sex is tender and hot. Now it was Christmas time and they were getting everything ready. Hale had gotten nominated by the alpha mate of their family to decorate for the holidays. Hale, however, wasn’t too sure he could do it. He was a bit intimidated by all the fierce hunters around him, but when he said he would do something, he would do it. He is not only cute, but extremely smart, caring and very loving. His mate is all alpha type, tough and can be mean when needed, but he lacked the self-confidence to be true to himself. He loved his mate though and was determined to help him with every bit of decoration there was. When Rand group of shifters attacked, things go up in smoke. This book has the perfect amount of excitement mixed with danger. Hale just needed to be reminded what the holiday’s are all about.


It is a great story, one that I have read more than once. I cannot wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.

Blurb:When two bad boys meet, nothing good can come of it.

Might is the biggest outcast in the pack of Wolves that he lives with. Not only is he actually an Eagle shifter, but he’s also half-human, but that hasn’t stopped him from sleeping with every available male in the pack. Hey, call him a slut, but he likes to have a good time.
Adan left the pack ten years ago, before they could have a chance to exile him. Always breaking the rules, fighting, and committing petty crimes, he caused nothing but trouble for the pack. Now he’s back, and the question everyone is asking is, has he changed his old ways?
Then he meets Might, and he knows he has to have the Eagle shifter. But when these two bad boys clash, will they cause nothing but trouble? Or will they be able to tame each other?

Review: Stephani has always given me the perfect escape during a busy day. I have always loved her stories and this one ranks right up there with all other others. An amazing read if I say so myself. The right mixtures of excitement, intrigue, adventure, and danger. I love how she can give you two of the sexiest men around, put them into a dangerous situation, and watch them work their way out.

Might is a half eagle shifter and half wolf shifter, living among a pack of wolves. He doesn’t fit in at all, and to make things worse he sleeps with anyone and everyone. He likes to have a good time. Now you add in one very sexy mate Adan and you are going to have fireworks. Might had pretty much been in a lab all of his life, experimented on and tortured. He was adorable, sweet, and gentle and kind, but he only thought he was worth much in bed nowhere else. Whereas Adan was strong, fierce, yet loving to his mate. When they do get together, it was hot, sensuous and set the sheets on fire.

This series should be read in order otherwise you might get a bit lost. It has its humor mixed in with a touch of seriousness. I love the way they can overcome pain and turn it into happiness. It gives you a whole new world to lose yourself into.

Review: This was as a pretty good book and I loved it. It is book eight in the series so to get the full story you would want to start with the first book.

It starts out serious with lots of danger and excitement. Zaid, an African Wild Dog who comes off serious and strong is a wonderful mate for someone who is kind of the opposite of him. Kline has always stayed at home because of a gift that he considers a curse. But his curse leads him to his mate, a man he has been wanting for a long time. When they do finally come together, it is so hot, tender, and full of love. They just had to come to terms with their desires.

Kline is what Zaid truly wants and will do anything to protect his mate. The story line and plot to this book is fantastic and even if most books start to have repeating parts to them, this one has uniqueness to it. I loved the way the whole story came together. It kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting for the next page. I can’t wait to read it again. It was one of the better stories that I have read.
