Greyriver Shifters by Kristina Weaver


This was a great collection of five standalone stories based around the pack of Greyriver Shifters.  Each story focuses on a fated couple, two people regardless of race, gender, shifter type or human, who are linked to be mated.  As always the males are big, alpha, dominant types who eventually care obsessively for their females, even if they don’t to begin with, but the females have their own way of showing their strength and soon have the males towing the line.

During this series we follow the matings of Bear and Mika, Logan and Hannah, Brigger and Barbie, Banner and Cass, and Blain and Julia. Although these can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading them in order as most of the characters do appear in each others books,which gives some good background into that character ready for their own story.  There is also an underlying story that runs throughout the series, which would be confusing if you don’t read from the beginning.

I did enjoy these books, however there were times when I really disliked some of the male Shifter characters and their attitudes towards their females.  I’m not sure I would have been so tolerant with a man if he treated me the way these guys treated their prospective mates…fated or not, I’d have been out of there, not constantly trying to please him.

An enjoyable fantasy series with Shifters, Humans, Fated and Mated, threats to the pack, loyalty and betrayal, and not forgetting some hot, animalistic sex!


I don’t want to feel this pull towards Mika Bright and feel the lust that overtakes me when I smell her. She’s the opposite of everything I want in a female and as the next Alpha to my pack I want my mate to be of my kind, strong, capable, on the fringes of my emotions. Mika isn’t like that. She’s sweet and soft and she needs me to give her things I don’t think I can give her. She’s human to my wolf. Light to my dark. She’s not mine and yet I want her unlike any other female in this world. If I mate her I will lose every iota of control in my life and to a guy like me, control is power. 

I will not mate Hannah Seers even if destiny and my animal call to me to do it. She’s spoilt, rude, mean and ugly in ways that have nothing to do with her perfect form and the body that drives me crazy. I shouldn’t look at her and want her and I damn sure should not give in to her demands for a mating but she has something I need and if I have to mate her to get it, I will. That doesn’t mean I will love her even as I take her body and it sure as hell doesn’t mean I want her heart. Or do I? 

The problem with being a liar and a cheat is that before you know it you don’t recognise yourself anymore. I’ve spent my life lying, living in a world where other people don’t really know the real me. I’ve lied to myself, my friends and the one female who I should have claimed years ago. Beebee hates me, for good reason. She doesn’t trust me, for good reason. She wants me, because I make her believe that she should. Now it’s up to me to decide if loving her is worth the risk of losing my freedom and risk losing myself once again when things fall apart. 

I’m a mixed breed shifter who has both bear and wolf within my blood. I am dangerous, big andscare the females in my own pack. I prefer solitude and I keep to myself because I doubt that I will ever be lucky enough to find my Fated, my true female, the one who will complete me. When a car breaks down on the side of the highway that borders my pack and the land I guard the last thing I expect is to see the smallest human female staring back at me. The very last thing I know is that she definitely can never be mine. Even if I know it’s true. 

I’ve killed. I’ve lied. I’ve stolen. I’ve committed every unspeakable crime that you can think of and I haven’t regretted it once until the day Julia Silverton comes for me. She’s my Fated, my one but I don’t want her. I can’t. She’s good and I’m, not. She’s love and I’ve hated for so long I don’t know what that means anymore. She wants me. Needs me and I will save her but I will never give her my heart. I can’t. She’d break me. 



The Billionaire Shifter’s True Alpha – Billionaire Shifters Club #5) by Diana Seere

Sophia Stanton enjoys the finer things in life, especially men and has no plans of giving up her pleasures any time soon.  That is until she her the BEAT.

Zach Hayden should not be the man he is today. Well, essentially he is no longer a man. Following an accident at work, Zach now has the abilities to Shift, but following months of rehabilitation the Stanton family are not convinced of his adaption to their world.

In the care of Sophia, Zach is taken to their ranch in Montana where the two work on the conventions of his shifting and their sexual attraction. Not knowing who to trust, Zach flees and soon becomes the target for a rogue shifter. Can Sophia save Zach before it is too late or is it Zach who needs to save Sophia?


Once again a brilliant continuation to the Stanton family saga.  Sophia is the head-strong, female version of her twin Derry (prior to him meeting Jess) and can hold her own with any man. Zach, however, is not any man.  Considering himself a misfit, a freak of nature, he refuses to believe that the connection between himself and Sophia is what it is. Fate is a fickle thing and even harder for a scientist to come to terms with.

The characters are fantastic and work so well together to give an entertaining, thrilling and sometime amusing tale. It is great to see all the Stanton’s back together.  Lilah and Gavin are having twins, Edward and Molly are happily engaged, Derry and Jess have their own surprises, and Asher is blatantly in love with Sam but refuses to acknowledge it…can’t wait for his story!

Zach is a pivotal character in the ongoing battle between the Stanton’s and Tomas Nagy as they fight for the good of the Shifter world and I look forward to seeing how this plot will progress in the next story.

Wolf Protector / Dangerous Protector / Unwanted Protector – Federal Paranormal Unit #1-3 by Milly Taiden

Wolf Protector

Erica Villa has a special talent which is one reason she works for the Federal Paranormal Unit, a specialised branch of the FBI, but in order to protect the team all abilities are kept secret.  When the team start to investigate a possible serial killer, Erica and her partner Trent Buchanan, find themselves working closer than they have before.

Trent has known that Erica is his mate for a long time but she has always pushed him away.  As her abilities start to take a toll on her well-being, Trent is determined that he and his wolf will not only protect her but will make her his. Can the pair stop the killer before another girl dies or will they die trying?


Dangerous Protector

Ten years ago Cynthia Vega walked out on James Brock after he proposed.  He never knew why.

Arriving at the scene of their latest case, the last person Brock ever expected to see was Cyn and to make things worse she has just become his boss.

Cyn had her reasons for leaving, still does, but seeing James again was harder than she thought. Working close to him is going to be near impossible but for both their sakes she needs to keep her distance. Brock has other ideas.  No way is he going to let his mate go again.

When Cyn’s cousin goes missing, Brock insists on joining her to unofficially investigate the disappearance.  Family secrets are hard to keep.  Can she expect Brock to understand and will he ever forgive her?


Unwanted Protector

Jane Donovan has keeping Tony Ramirez at a very long arms length for ten years and if he ever found out the truth she’s not sure he would ever forgive her.

Tony has had enough.  He knows deep down that Jane is his mate but something keeps telling him she is not.  When Jane disappears while on vacation Tony is determined to track her down and finally make her his.

Being kidnapped was not part of Jane’s original vacation plans, neither was finding the small girl who tugged at her heart strings and made her rethink her entire outlook.  Tony turning up to rescue her was also not in her plans.  When team members and family members start to arrive out of nowhere, Jane must face the truth and allow her relationship with Tony to take it’s natural course but when others intervene all could be lost.


I really enjoyed this series and loved the way the characters worked together and built their personalities over the course of the books.  It is highly recommended to read all three as the final book brings the whole story to a head and gives meaning to why the team has been worked the way it has.  All the couples are great and have very distinctive characteristics.  The mating of each couple is powerful and full of sex…be warned there is lots of sex in these books!

Besides the sex the story lines are very strong.  Starting with the investigation into a serial killer, then a missing family member who everyone believes is crazy, to finish with aliens.  They are well written and engaging and I will be reading more by this author in the future, probably the Paranormal Dating Agency Series

Escape to Paradise by Victoria Zak, D.L. Roan, Lana Williams, Xyla Turner, J.D. Monroe, Hildie McQueen, Olivia Gaines, Tigris Eden

Ever wanted to escape to a paradise island where all your dreams and fantasies can come true?  Welcome to Indulgences.

This boxset comprises of a compilation of short stories all based on the Indulgences Resort –

MIDNIGHT’S KISS by Victoria Zak & DL Roan


UNDERTONES by Xyla Turner



FRANKLIN’S HEART by Olivia Gaines

A GAME OF HEARTS by Tigris Eden


Came across this series of books thanks to one of my favourite authors – D. L. Roan. When the boxset was released I had to give it a try and so glad I did.  These books are cleverly written in that they all based at Indulgence Resort on Aragon Island.  There are recurring characters in all the stories – Antonio Aragon, the Islands owner, his work partner and lover, Kenderly, and Mario, the extravagant and outrageous events manager.

Each story is based around a couple, either arriving separately or together, who find themselves living out fantasies they didn’t even realise they had.  Don’t misunderstand, these fantasies don’t tend towards the kink (well not all) but more to do with finding or rekindling love in exciting and erotic ways.

Great series and a brilliant way to introduce new authors to your reading selection. I will definitely be reading some of the books by the other authors now.

Ruby and the Beast: A Beauty and the Beast Novel by Ditter Kellen

In the wake of her father’s murder, Ruby Atwood returns to New Orleans to seek answers and care for her little brother.  Finding that her father was heavily in debt to Lincoln Barone leads Ruby to the mansion of a hooded Beast, who demands she pay off her father’s debt by staying with him for one month.

Cursed for the sins of his father, Lincoln despises the whole Atwood family and plans to ruin and humiliate Ruby,  but will her innocence and beauty be enough to bring humanity back to the Beast or will he scare her away forever…as who could ever love A Beast?


I really enjoyed this retelling of the classic tale.

Cursed with voodoo magic, Lincoln was born a beast and destined to stay that way unless he could learn to love and find a innocent to love him in return.  Believing this to be hopeless task he had resigned himself to the fate handed him.  That is until he sees Ruby Atwood.

Ruby will do anything to ensure that her brother is kept safe and in her care, even if that means giving herself to a man for a month.  Not everything in life is as it seems and when she is faced with the reality of her confinement, Ruby finds all the courage she has to get through.

The connection between Ruby and Lincoln is tenuous to begin with and there is a subtle attraction but when they disagree expect explosions.  Finding the one woman who will stand up to his beastly ways increases the attraction on both sides.

A modern day fairy-tale with sexual chemistry that would definitely make Belle blush.

The Billionaire Shifter’s Secret Baby (Howls Romance #4) by Diana Seere

Three years ago a night of passion left tiger-shifter, Kara Jablonski, with more than just good feelings. It also left her with a son.  Keeping the boy a secret from his famous father, and even more infamous tiger-shifter family, is all Kara can think to do to keep them both safe.

Lars Jensen may have the reputation of a bad-boy rock star, but since that night he has been chasing the tail of the woman who left him. Now, an unexpected meeting will bring out secrets and feelings that neither of them had been prepared to share.

When two tigers meet it is nothing but WILD!


This novella follows on from the Billionaire Shifter series which is one of my favourites. Lars has been introduced to us in previous books in this series although only as a side character.  We find out more about him and his family in this book and the woman who has become his ‘One’.

Kara is a weretiger from a working class background who has no one left except her son. She will do everything in her power to protect him, including keeping him from his father.  When the couple finally meet, sparks fly and the beat is unmistakable but when Lars learns her secret there are more than sparks.

If you have never read any of the Billionaire Shifter series then…What Is Wrong With You! In all seriousness, this story can be read as a standalone but I would still recommend you read the other’s in the series.

A fantastic addition the this brilliant series.

My Immortal Cowboy – Hell’s Cowboys #1 by Victoria Zak

Bull rider RC Reid only wanted to give the girl of his dreams everything she deserved, leaving her to make his fortune on the Rodeo circuit was supposed to bring him fame and fortune but all it takes is one ride and his life, and death, was changed forever.

Charlee Brysen had to make money the only way she could – stripping.  When the love of her life dies, closely followed by the only family member she had left, she vows to keep the home she grew up in.  But with debts increasing and payments to be made she is left with few options.

With Vampires taking over the town of Diablo, Texas, and on the hunt to destroy all half-breeds, Roman McCoy is set to fight back.  With his Immortal Cowboys and the newly recruited RC Reid they patrol the streets to keep both humans and half-breeds safe but when Charlee becomes the focus of the vampires, RC sets out to ensure her safety and win back her heart.


Is there anything better than a good cowboy book…yep! Cowboys and Vampires! End of review…that is all you need to know.

This is the first book in the Immortal Cowboys series and sets the stage for future books, introducing all the pivotal characters, good guys and bad.  Along with RC there are three other cowboys – Kit, Clay and Tibbs, and also the man in charge, Roman.  The master Vampire, Mace Wrathmore , is determined to rid the world of the half-breeds and use the humans as a feeding supplying.  When he takes an interest in Charlee, RC does everything he can to protect her but sometimes it is not always enough and tough decisions have to be made.

Exciting and enjoyable story.  Interesting characters with the potential for further books. There is currently no sign of a follow up book but I am hopeful that the series has not ended before it has begun.  I will however be reading the Guardians of Scotland series by the same author very soon.
