Review By Tamye

☕☕☕☕

Gerri Walker has her work cut out for her in this unique look at the PDA Kindle World.

Although Chase and Kelli know in their hearts who they want. Their heads and duty push them in a different direction. Due to the town being made up with a mish mash of varying breeds of shifter, the hierarchy is abnormal, the customs and traditions strange yet inflexible. The major, Chase’s father is unwilling to change, even at the expense of the dwindling pack numbers. Can Gerri help set thing right?

This was an interesting look into a unique shifter community. How the old ways fight against the new. How sometimes you have to do what you think is right, not what you’ve been told is so. The author pulled me into her world, introducing me to some loveable, and some not so loveable characters. With a fluid and entertaining style she kept me entertained and curious to see what happened next.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good shifter romance. I know I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.

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


Blurb:
Kelli and Chase grew up together and know the rules: when he comes of age, he’s got to choose a shifter to bond with, period. And Kelli’s not a shifter. There isn’t any way around biology.

But chemistry is something else entirely, and Kelli did the one thing she never thought she could do—move to the city to escape it. Her feelings left her no other choice. It was the only way she could see for Chase to follow his shifter destiny.

Now, Chase is getting a divorce from the shifter who was supposed to be his bonded mate, and some crazy friend of his Grandma is telling him he can bond with humans. It’s not the way things have always been in their little shifter community, but Geri Wilder keeps telling him they’ve been doing things backward.

Now that Kelli is back, Chase is angry and confused, seeing the truth of the mistakes they’ve made. However, Kelli is only in town to plan her wedding.

To someone else.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Book Description – Bleeding Hearts by Ash Krafton

Sophie Galen is an advice columnist whose work leaves her neck-deep in other people’s problems. Thanks to her compassion, her gut instinct, and her magnetic charm, Sophie really knows how to attract little black clouds.

Marek Thurzo is no little black cloud; he’s a maelstrom. Marek is Demivampire, a race with the potential to evolve into vampire. A warrior who’s taken his share of spiritual damage, he hovers dangerously close to destruction.

He seeks salvation. She’s driven to save him. But what if he can’t be saved?

Sympathy for his plight becomes true empathy as Sophie’s hidden nature is revealed. Marek suspects she may be one of the Sophia, oracle and redemption of the damned Demivampire. She alone can turn back the evolutionary clock.

All she needs is the courage to face her fears. Can she save him from Falling?

Excerpt from BLEEDING HEARTS Demimonde Book 1 by Ash Krafton

In the great hall housing the Egyptian exhibitions, I immediately noted the change in the atmosphere. The room was cool and dry, its climate controlled to mimic the conditions in which the relics had existed in their native land.

The entire room had been designed to resemble an Old Kingdom temple. The main lights were dimmed while strategically-placed spotlights emphasized massive columns and magnificent wall carvings like sunbeams through temple windows.

I scanned the room. No other tourists. Even better. I meandered, enjoying the rare opportunity to linger.

Craning my neck, I ran my gaze up each of the columns, reading the images, admiring the palm leaves carved at the tops like great stone trees. Eyes toward the ceilings, I turned slowly around, admiring the handiwork of the ancient artists.

What was it like to live in those lands and those times? Could an ancient version of my spirit have been there, stepping barefoot and silently through a sandy temple like this one?

Lost in contemplation, I was completely unprepared for the shock of smacking into someone, bumping him hard enough to lose my balance. I’d have fallen had he not caught my arm. Wide-eyed with consternation, I stammered an apology to the handsome but serious-faced gentleman.

“You are not hurt, I hope?” His voice, deep and smooth, sent shivers marching down my neck, between my shoulders, down my spine.

“I’m okay.” I shook my head, too shy to make direct eye contact, wishing I’d checked my hair and lipstick before coming in. “I’m far too adept at being inept.”

He flashed a grin and I caught a glimpse of nice white teeth. “Temples are places for spiritual reflection. It is forgivable if your vision was turned inward, rather than toward where you were walking.”

His expression softened by amusement, he tilted his head toward the pillars. “Majestic, aren’t they?”

I stole another glance at him—black hair smoothed back into a discreet tail, clear light skin framed by long sideburns, strong jaw culminating in a square, cleft chin. Like the other items in the museum, something about him made me want to look closer, inspect each detail.

A subtle flush warmed my cheeks and ears so I quickly turned back to the heights of the exhibition. Murmuring a sound of agreement, I circled the column, stepping a few feet away so I could see both him and the stone. “Do you visit this museum often?”

Furtive glances allowed me to take in more of his appearance a tiny section at a time. Clothing dark as his hair. Long blazer, something in between a suit coat and an overcoat. In one hand he carried a bound book and fountain pen, as if he’d been making notes.

His gaze was calm and steady and entirely on me. Taking a deep breath I permitted the contact of the direct look. My boldness was well-rewarded. His Paul Newman lips brought to mind the sculptured busts on display in the Greco-Roman Quarters and he wore a stern expression that cast a veil of hardness upon his features, enhancing the impression he’d been carved from marble.

Except for his eyes. The Roman busts bore eyes that were blank and white but this man’s eyes were alive with bright green color. Like gemstones, they glittered and drew my gaze.

“No, actually,” he said. “My first time here. Although, I admit, I’m drawn to places like this.” His voice made music of the words—deep bass notes and soothing rhythm.

“Ah!” I said. “A man after my own heart.” His left eyebrow arched so sharply I thought it might disappear into his hairline and I hurriedly continued. “Are you a professor?”

“No, nothing like that. I do studying of my own, it’s not a living. It’s more of a hobby. Personal research, of sorts.”

“Studying past times is one of my pastimes. It’s my preferred form of entertainment.”

“Mmm.” Eyebrow cocked again, he cast a disapproving look at me and swept his hand around the contrived temple. “Would the gods be pleased to know they are reduced to the level of entertainment?”

“I hope so.” I kept my tone light. Considering the seriousness of his expression, I didn’t want to accidentally insult him. “Otherwise, they’d have to be content with staying dead, right?”

His gaze swept over me and I shivered again as if the touch had been tangible, a brush of fingertips against my cheek.

“Well, I’ll leave you to your worship. I mean, your wanderings.” He gave me a conspirator’s wink. “Unless…”

He hesitated, with a quiet clearing of throat as he tucked his notebook and pen into an inside pocket. “You wouldn’t mind a companion? Sometimes one sees things differently when seeing through another’s eyes. I would appreciate a new perspective.”

I mulled it over, listening to the rain spattering the windows and distant voices echoing faintly from other rooms. Although I’d looked forward to a quiet afternoon, it might be nice to spend it with someone who seemed to share my interests. He certainly was attractive, and his pleasant voice intrigued me.

I realized I’d become used to living inside a shell. This man made me want to step outside for once.

“I’d like that.” I smiled at his pleased expression. “I’m Sophie, by the way.” I stuck out my hand in introduction.

Instead of shaking my hand, he bent his head over it and pressed polite lips to the backs of my fingers. The quaint gesture would have seemed strange and out of place had we been elsewhere. “I am Marek. Pleased to make your acquaintance.”

Fingers tingling from the unexpected kiss, I fought the urge to curtsy. “Well, Marek. Lead me into the past.”

His almost-smile sent a thrill down the back of my neck. “That’s exactly the sort of thing I’d hoped you say. Shall we?”

He turned on his heel and swept out a hand with a slight bow, indicating the archway to another exhibit. For the first time since I’d been coming to this museum, I wondered what I’d see on the other side, and was surprised to realize I wasn’t afraid to find out.
