Avery is an overweight shifter who is unable to shift and upset by her last boyfriends cheating ways. When she meets Fletcher and Mitch she knows they’re trouble but can she resist? Should she resist?
I like Avery and Fletcher and Mitch. They are all good characters but very predictable. I wish the author had given us more. Maybe more world building, or more action or something. Please be aware the men do interact which I personally am a fan of. If you like shifter stories I have no doubt you’re going to enjoy this one. It has sexy men who are in love with an overweight, flawed woman. There’s hot sex and mate fun. The author is very talented, I’ve read several of her other books and they’ve been fabulous. I just wish this story was different from all the other shifter books out there.
Love fated mate stories? I’d say give Queen Wolf a read!
Selena is an average woman with the exception that she dreams about her ancestor, the one who was presumed murdered by a half breed native American. When she’s in Texas trying to put her ancestor’s history to rest she’s swept up, literally, to the nineteenth century.
This is a time travel story with wonderful characters and steamy sex. I liked Selena right away. Dylan is harder to like. He has this attitude and he always jumps to the wrong conclusion or distrusts Selena in the most asinine way. The time jump is fun. I would have liked a bit more on it. Maybe how they don’t understand a lot of her mannerisms or something. Overall this is a fun, interesting, romantic read!
If you enjoy time travel romance then you should definitely read Winds of Time by Lilly Gayle!
Life doesn't always give you what you want. In the end you have to make it yourself.
Life is Hard. But it was harder in the Old West. Harrison Carter's worked hard to make his fortune in the silver mines of Colorado, to be able to finally send for his long-awaited fiance Jenny back in Illinois. So it's little wonder he's pissed when who should arrive by train on his wedding day is not Jenny but her sister Retta, complete with toddler in tow.
While the idea of swapping one bride for another makes for good storytelling, in those days it was not just a story; it was sometimes a necessity. Harrison's initial rejection of Retta and anger at Jenny is understandable, but marries Retta anyway to honor Jenny's dying wish. Retta is just as apprehensive but has little prospects herself being the mother of an illegitimate child. Both Harrison and Retta are taking big risks, but with big risks come big rewards. The development of their relationship is heartwarming and Harrison's acceptance of Retta's daughter Adeline as his own shows the strong type of character he is. Retta also shows a bit of steel in her spine while at the same time doing what's expected of her under difficult circumstances. Throw in the token villain, in this case Slim Morgan and his cadre of slime balls who aim to take both Harrison's livelihood as well as his pretty new wife, and you have a fairly cliche if somewhat boring period drama that seems dragged out over more pages than is necessary. However, what makes it intriguing is that the story was inspired by a true-life family history. If that's so, then any preconceived ideas of the era's straight-laced, buttoned-up behavior in the bedroom in are out the window thanks to the author's skillful depiction of some wild west action between homespun sheets!
Western romance fans can saddle up comfortably with this predictable but satisfying read!
Beauty is only space deep
Taken from the only family she has ever known on planet Vaaden, and forced into slavery as a young girl, Rena has no knowledge of her human origins. Given as a gift to a Zelthranite officer, her damaged body incites only pity from Commander Ryx, who in turn charges his lieutenant Beren with her safekeeping. Having long abandoned any hope of a suitable mate, the battle-scarred and disfigured Beren soon finds a kindred spirit in the fragile and mistreated Rena. Can two damaged souls of vastly different species find beauty and healing beyond their beastly exteriors?
I was delighted to discover that this story is a continuation of an earlier-reviewed installment of this series, Jennifer and the Alien Badass. Jennifer and Siril's relationship lay the groundwork for this saga, and happily make a reappearance near the end of this book. Again I am struck by the juxtaposition of futuristic high tech vs age-old human struggles; unthinkable that slavery should still exist in societies advanced enough for space travel, but there it is. I guess some things take longer to transcend above than others. The writing itself is straightforward and easy to read but by the same token lacks inspiration or interesting vocabulary. In spite of that, I love this series for its exploration of the not-so-perfect hero and heroine, whose physical deformities affect but do not define them, and allow them the pursuit of love, happiness, and a hopeful future.
Equally enjoyable is the gentle but steadily growing attraction between Beren and Rena, their progression from strangers to lovers happening in a sweet and natural way, yet leading to Nova-magnitude hot sex--several times! If you're looking for alien encounters of the sexy kind', this book will definitely get your ticket on the rocket to interspecies intimacy punched and validated!!
