Claiming Her Dragons by Lia Davis

Review By Tamye

☕☕☕☕

I was instantly enthralled with this story.

Jackie has a little problem. Her boyfriends can’t keep up, sexually. They say she’s oversexed. Her therapist says she’s a sex addict. Her bestie/roommate says, date a shifter. Being an intelligent lady, Jackie signs up with PDA. The Paranormal Dating Agency who’s supposed to have an phenomenal success rate. Jackie didn’t care what type of shifter she got, as long as there was more than one. No sense taking a chance.

Caleb, Spencer, and Blake want a mate. The same one. But they haven’t had much luck finding a woman who would take on all three of them.

Gerri Wilder, matchmaker extraordinaire has no problem fitting the pieces together and matching Jackie with the three dragon shifters. But can she handle all three of them? Can they satisfy her?

While I enjoyed the story, there wasn’t much tension, or conflict in the story. It’s a fun read, with a few surprises. The characters were engaging, and the writing smooth. It was worth my time to read, and I would definitely like to read more by this author.

Disclosure: I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.


Blurb:
Be careful what you ask for…
The beautiful, curvy Jackie Olsen has a sex drive in hyperdrive. Her last boyfriend broke it off saying she was too exhausting for him. Without much hope for finding what she needs in the human gene pool, she turns to Gerri Wilder for help, hoping a shifter, or two, could keep up with her desires.

Jackie just isn’t prepared to go on a date with not one, but three hot dragon shifters.

A Wolf in Bear’s Clothing by Renee George – Spotlight and Review – A Milly Taiden ‘Paranormal Dating Agency’ Kindle World book

Milly Taiden's Paranormal Dating Agency

A Wolf in Bear’s Clothing

by

Renee George

A Wolf in Bear's Clothing by Renee George

Review By Tamye

☕☕☕☕☕

Sign me up! Action packed paranormal romance with spunk and heart.

This story has it all! Once again Ms. George has woven a sexy tale of intrigue, lust, and love interspersed with her signature sense of humor. I have yet to read one of her books that I didn’t love.

In “A Wolf in Bear’s Clothing” you’re immediately drawn into intrigue. Be it a lonely mother conspiring to get her son mated so he will stay away from fighting overseas. Her capable accomplice, the indomitable paranormal matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. Or the strong willed Dr. Quinn Orson who is willing to use a dating agency to find her a bear she can mate ASAP to keep a jerk from inheriting all her family owns, as well as the leadership of her clan. Then to just to mix things up and add some heat, we get the Luke Dashwood a sexy wolf shifter who owns a security firm. Quinn needs a security firm until after the mating ceremony. With a little nudge or two from Gerri all the players are in place and things really heat up.

I couldn’t put this down it was so well written that I was completely captivated. Great read! I hope to see more in this world as I loved all the characters and would enjoy seeing some of the secondary characters stories brought to life.

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Blurb:

Since only a male heir can assume the reigns of the Orsino Bear Clan, quirky and curvy Quinn Orson needs a bear husband and fast. Quinn would willingly let go of her father’s title, wealth, and property—after all, she’s a doctor and lives independent from the clan, but if she doesn’t find a suitable mate in the next two weeks, her mom and younger sisters will suffer the harsh consequences. Quinn wants to save her family’s legacy–she just doesn’t want to marry some hairy beast to keep it. 

Desperate, Quinn seeks the help of the Paranormal Dating Agency. When she meets sexy security specialist Luke Dashwood, their instant attraction makes him the perfect hubby candidate. After all, if he smells like a bear and acts like a bear … then he’s a bear, right? Um…

Werewolf Luke Dashwood wants Quinn Orson, the voluptuous emergency room doctor whose beauty and smarts make his inner beast howl. When he learns she’s gone to the PDA to find a mate—he’s determined to show her that he can be her one and only. Two problems. 1. She’s the eldest daughter of the Orsino bear clan, and needs a mate to keep her family’s legacy intact. To clarify: A bear shifter mate. 2. She’s the target of an assassin hellbent on killing her before she can reclaim her birthright.

Now, Luke’s wolf is ready to bear-up and do whatever it takes to keep the woman he loves safe—even if it means losing her forever.

Blazing Tales by Jami Brumfield

Blurb:

Mystery author Willamena (Willa) Rines is in desperate need for a date to her birthday party. Her boss has set his sights on her. Willa’s editor, Penny and her decide the only way to escape that train wreck is to show up to the party with a handsome date on her arm. She calls Gerri Wilder’s dating agency and asks for a man who can impress, but isn’t interested in anything long term. Her career and heart can’t take getting burned again.

As a dedicated arson investigator and dragon shifter, Blaze knows a thing or two about starting and putting out fires on the street and in the bedroom. He is highly respected and very successful in his chosen career. But his brother, Dyson and family friend, Gerri Wilder are worried he is forgetting the most important part of life, family. It’s not that he doesn’t want to find a mate, but his dragon half is very particular. They break him down and he agrees to go on a date. He plans on one night, nothing more, then he meets Willa and the sparks fly. She is only interested in getting through the night. He knows she is his fated mate and needs to find a way to convince her it could be more than a fling.

Fate has a way of forcing their hands. Friendships will be tested, lives put in jeopardy, and a real-life mystery revealing secrets that can destroy both of them are just a few of the obstacles put in their path. If this couple can walk through the fire without getting burned, they may have a future together. Will their love take flight on his dragon wings or die in the embers of their fiery passion?

Milly Taiden's Paranormal Dating Agency

Her Mane Attraction

by

Nicole Garcia

Her Mane Attraction by Nicole Garcia

Blurb:

Exiled from his native homeland in Africa, Adonis becomes separated from his pride and is forced to make a home in the Adirondacks. The need to claim a mate is strong, but how will he ever find her when no one will give him a chance because of his appearance? Not only did being a white lion make him an outcast amongst his own kind, he’s isolated and constantly rejected in his human form as well.

Eira is bored with her run of the mill, mundane life. She loves her job as a pilot and enjoys meeting new people, but something is missing. There’s no excitement, no romance, no special someone to fill the empty space in her heart. Being human, it only makes sense that she date her own kind, which wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t find every man she meets a total bore and completely ordinary.

When a skeptical Adonis and an adventurous Eira find themselves hooked up on a not so typical first date arranged by Gerri from the Paranormal Dating Agency, sparks aren’t the only things flying. Their good time quickly becomes a race for their lives as they try to escape the wilderness holding them captive. As if the situation couldn’t get any worse, Adonis has to fight off his rival to keep the one woman who holds the key to his heart.

Shifting Fate by Wren Michaels

 

Review By Tamye

☕☕☕☕

Didn’t expect that ending! Wow!

Fun yet intriguing read. And Hot! Definitely hot! Phew, I’m still fanning myself while trying to recover from the shock of the surprise ending. Totally caught me off guard. Wow! Way to go to the author.

Sylvia and Braxton’s story flowed well, as the intrigue and romance increased in a balanced dance of chemistry and tension. I quickly became infested in both the characters. I would recommend this book to my friends and fellow shifter lovers.

Disclosure: I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.


 

Blurb:

Sylvia Schneider loves her some Navy SEALs, but only the ones she creates digitally for the video game she’s producing with Noah Wright. Devastated by the death of her military fiance, she hasn’t dated in two years, much less left her apartment. But when Noah asks her to introduce the new game at a convention in Vegas, she’s forced out of the house and her shell. To top off her already building anxiety, she’s been getting nastygrams from someone claiming she stole their game design. Threats on her life send her to Gerri, owner of the Paranormal Dating Agency, for a shifter bodyguard. Sylvia is adamant that it’s just for the weekend, and just for an escort, and not that kind of escort.

Braxton “Brawn” O’Brien was the runt of his pack. He left home to make a name for himself as a Navy SEAL, where as even the smallest wolf, he towers among the humans, using his preternatural abilities to save lives. But lately his wolf side has been battling anger issues, and the rage inside him cannot be quelled. He’s forced into medical leave to figure out what the problem is, or his military career is over.

 

When Gerri hooks Braxton up with a bodyguard gig while on leave, he hopes she can also find him a mate to satisfy the beast roaring inside him. One look at his charge, Sylvia, and he knows she’s the one. The problem is then convincing the spunky, yet shy human of the same. When the threats on her life turn into attacks, Braxton will hunt until his last breath to keep his mate safe. But Sylvia’s got secrets of her own, that may make or break the mating bond.

Shifting Fate TeaserAuthor Bio:

Wren hails from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where beer and cheese are their own food groups. But a cowboy swept her off her feet and carried her below the Mason-Dixon line to Texas, where she promptly lost all tolerance for cold and snow. Fueled by coffee, dreams, and men in kilts, Wren promises to bring you laughter, sexy fun time, and action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The easiest way to her heart is anything to do with the Green Bay Packers, Doctor Who, or Joss Whedon.

Playing With Fire by Margaret Madigan

 

Blurb:
When Vlad Golakov is sent to New Orleans on a protection detail, he plans to get the job done quickly, then enjoy the Big Easy. But when the woman he’s assigned to finds out he’s there disguised as her date, she ditches him at the first opportunity, complicating the job.

Angela Reeves is an investigative reporter on the trail of several missing women. Her leads all point to a local band called Cry Wolf. When she goes to a concert to search for clues, she doesn’t anticipate waking up as a wolf, or being rescued by her hot dragon shifter date.

Vlad tracks Angela to a rundown plantation outside New Orleans where Cry Wolf has been luring women to grow their wolf pack. Angela is just another of their victims until Vlad rescues her, but he can’t just leave her to deal with her condition alone. As they navigate her symptoms, attraction ignites between them. Seeking a safe and remote location for her first shift, they end up back at the plantation where they battle Cry Wolf and teach them that when you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned.

Milly Taiden’s Paranormal Dating Agency Presents “Bare Naked” by Leteisha Newton

 Bare Naked

by
Leteisha Newton

Bear Naked Leteish Newton

Alejandra Perez wants nothing more than to continue writing her Hear Me Roar blog posts, and educate today’s woman on standing firm, loving their bodies—all curves included—and understanding that love isn’t always necessary. She’s had her own rash of bad luck in that department and she wants others to know that love doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all. When a visitor challenges Ally to opening her heart to love, with the help of Gerri Wilder and Paranormal Dating Agency, she decides to record the process on her blog to show that she can be happy all by herself.

Deni and Rich have always been connected in life and individually haven’t been able to find a mate. The two decide it’s because they need one woman who can understand the unique way they are bonded and give their dilemma over to Gerri to find them a mate. The catch? She has to be also strong enough to wrangle their bear sides fighting for supremacy over their clan—an issue that puts strain on their friendship and leaves them feeling broken, as well as sending the clan into civil war.

If finding love with two men amid her disbelieve in true love wasn’t enough, Alejandra faces a vicious rival who’d rather remove one of her bears, and take her place as alpha mate. She’ll have to fight for love and her place if she ever wants to have true happiness.

WARNING: Book contains foul-language, a woman decidedly not in distress, but in great need of love from two men who will love her spunk, and hot, kinky sex that will set the pages on fire. If explicit scenes, bad words, violence, and a spanking or two isn’t your sort of book, this isn’t for you. But, if you like it rough, hard, and a whole lot of dirty, come on inside.

Author Bio:

Writing professionally since 2008, LeTeisha Newton’s love of romance novels began long before it should have. After spending years sneaking reads from her grandmother’s stash, she finally decided to pen her own tales. As many will do during their youth, she bounced from fantasy, urban literature, mainstream, interracial, paranormal, heterosexual, and LGBT works until she finally rested in contemporary romance.

LeTeisha is all about deep angst and angry heroes who take a bit more loving to smooth their rough edges. Love comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors, as well as with—or without—absolute beauty and fairy tale sweetness. She writes the darker tales because life is hard … but love is harder.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know how to find your “influencers”, which social media platforms are your best bet based on your “target market”, and the real cost of that career reboot. And of course, if you’re just starting out, rebooting strategies can be adapted for new authors as well.
