Release Day Review! Dancer's Fated Mate (Arctic Shifters #6) R.E. Butler!

 

 

An invitation to spend Christmas with her cousin and her family is too good for Gabriella Fitzpatrick to pass up. When she awakens in the early morning hours and can’t go back to sleep, she walks into the front room and faces a polar bear, who miraculously changes into her cousin’s husband.

 

Declan, the second position on the sleigh team, has been waiting forever to find his fated mate. Five of his friends have already found theirs, and he knows it’s just a matter of time before he finds the one female on the planet for him. Just before dawn on Christmas Eve morning, he answers a call in the security office. One of the shifters who lives in the human world shifted in front of a human and doesn’t know what to do. Mrs. Claus tells Declan to use magic to wipe the human’s memories.

 

When Ellie wakes up, she vividly remembers watching a bear become a human. Declan promises she wasn’t hallucinating, and that he can also change into animals, including one of Santa’s reindeer. He calls her his fated mate and takes her to North Pole City to show her the truth of his world. Will she be willing to stay in NPC with Declan, or will she want to stay in her world forever?

 

 


The sixth book in the Artic Shifters series is fancifully magical and warms the heart like a delicious cup of hot cocoa as readers sit by the fire on Christmas morning. Ellie gets an adrenaline rushing shock when she visits her cousin for the holidays. Declan’s called in to clean up the mess. Can he convince Ellie to stay in NPC or will she return to her world forever? The suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seat during this fast paced and delightful story and is full of strong, spirited characters that not only easily connected to, but readers can’t help but fall for them. The romance is sweet, passionate and kind of edgy as the readers await Ellie final decision right alongside Declan which really makes them feel as if they are right there in NPC with them. SC and Mrs C ensures that every readers holiday as special with their own special brand of magic that warms the heart and brings a smile to reader’s faces.

The Hidden History of Elves and Dwarfs by Claude Lecouteux
The Hidden History of Elves and Dwarfs: Avatars of Invisible Realms - Claude Lecouteux,Régis Boyer

TITLE:   The Hidden History of Elves and Dwarfs:  Avatars of Invisible Realms

 

AUTHOR: Claude Lecouteux

 

DATE PUBLISHED: October 2018

 

FORMAT:  Hardcover

 

ISBN-13: 9781620557150

________________________

DESCRIPTION:

 

"A comprehensive examination of the intertwined mythology, folklore, and literary history of the little people

• Explores the pagan roots of dwarfs and elves and their evolution in myth and literature

• Reveals the role the church played in changing them from fearless, shape-shifting warriors with magical powers into cheerful helpmates and cute garden gnomes

• Traces their history from ancient Celtic and Germanic lore through their emergence in the literature of the Middle Ages to their modern popularization by the Brothers Grimm and Walt Disney

Most people are familiar with the popular image of elves as Santa’s helpers and dwarfs as little bearded men wearing red caps, who are mischievous and playful, helpful and sly, industrious and dexterous. But their roots go far deeper than their appearance in fairy tales and popular stories. Elves and dwarfs are survivors of a much older belief system that predates Christianity and was widespread throughout Western Europe.

Sharing his extensive analysis of Germanic and Norse legends, as well as Roman, Celtic, and medieval literature, Claude Lecouteux explores the ancient, intertwined history of dwarfs and elves. He reveals how both were once peoples who lived in wild regions as keepers of the secrets of nature. They were able to change their size at will and had superhuman strength and healing powers. They were excellent smiths, crafting swords that nothing could dull as well as magical jewelry, and often entered into the service of lords or heroes. They were a part of the everyday life of our ancestors before they were transformed by fairy tales and church texts into the mythical creatures we know today.

Lecouteux shows how, in earlier folklore, elves and dwarfs were interchangeable, gradually evolving over time to express very different kinds of beings. “Dwarf,” “giant,” and even “elf” did not necessarily connote size but referred to races with different skills. Elves were more ethereal, offering protection and kindness, while dwarfs reflected a more corporeal form of spirit, often appearing as messengers from the underworld. Yet dwarfs and elves could be bargained with, and our ancestors would leave a broken object outside the door at night with the hope that a dwarf or elf (or other local spirit) would repair it.

Revealing the true roots of these helpful and powerful beings, including an in-depth exploration of one of the most famous dwarf/elf/fairy beings of the Middle Ages, Auberon or Oberon, also known as Alberich, Lecouteux shows how the magic of dwarfs and elves can be rekindled if we recognize their signs and invite them back into our world.
"

______________________________

 

The Hidden History of Elves and Dwarves takes a scholarly look at the changing nature of elves and dwarves in NEurope.  The book is informative and interesting, making a nice addition to the Ancestral Lore and Practices collection by the same author.

2 Reviews! Vixen's Fate Mate & Cupid's Fated Mate (Arctic Shifters #4 & 5) R.E. Butler!

 

 

Mire, the Vixen position on the sleigh team, has watched three of his friends and fellow shifters find their fated mates. He holds out hope that he’ll find his fated mate soon, but since he’s able to leave North Pole City for only twenty-four hours every year, he’s not sure when he’ll meet his one and only. When a non-quad shifter survives a near-fatal accident two days before Christmas Eve, they discover he had an affair with a human woman and had a child with her. Mire is tasked with bringing the daughter to NPC to meet with Santa Claus. What Mire doesn’t count on is that she’s his fated mate.

 

Noelle Jackson has known her whole life that she wasn’t entirely normal. Born with pointed ears, that her mother had altered with plastic surgery, she’s always felt out of place. When a dark-haired, gorgeous man shows up at her apartment and tells her that he can take her to visit her injured father, she jumps at the chance. She feels connected to the mysterious Mire, whose eyes flash from brown to gold whenever he looks at her.

 

When Noelle is magically whisked away to the North Pole, she feels right at home for the first time in her life. In a place where the magic is real, can Santa Claus grant Noelle and Mire their Christmas wish to spend the rest of their lives together, or will her father’s deceit mean NPC is closed to her forever?

 

 

Mire is hoping that he will find his fated mate soon but the last thing expected to find when Santa tasked him with bringing the daughter of a non-quad shifter in to NPC is that Noelle is his fated mate.

 

This fast paced and delightful story grabs readers by their hair and refuses to let go as thrilling suspense holds them captive throughout. Due to the circumstances surrounding Noelle and her father, there is a chance that NPC could be closed to Noelle forever and readers find themselves holding their breath to discover whether these captivating characters will get their Christmas wish or not.

Roi, an arctic shifter who calls North Pole City home, has watched four of his friends find their fated mates in the human world. He wants nothing more than to join them…to find the one woman on the planet meant for him, so that they can start their life together.

 

When the father of one of the fated mate’s falls ill before Christmas Eve, Santa Claus is unable to send her home to visit because his magic isn’t powerful enough. When he calls his old friend Sandman for help, Sandman’s daughter comes instead. Dreama, who is as powerful as her father, agrees to take the fated mate and her shifter home. When Santa sends Roi along as a guard, sparks fly between Dreama and him.

 

Dreama’s never met anyone like Roi, the sexy shifter who can change into four different animals. She wants to spend the rest of her life with him, but can a woman who walks in other people’s dreams get her own happily ever after? Or will an ancient law prevent her from staying in NPC? Only Santa knows if her dream will come true.

 


Roi wants to join his friends in mated bliss but when he finds her, an ancient law may prevent Dreama from remaining in NPC. Readers can’t help but become caught up in all the suspense surrounding Roi and Dreama as they try to discover a way to be together and Roi remain in NPC. The characters are strong, vivid and easily pull readers into their story while the suspense builds and keeps readers on their edge of their seats. This delightfully spirited holiday tale introduces fascinating characters and elements to the series that just makes even more charming and attractive. The stories in this series never fail to put readers in to the moon for Christmas cheer and this story ensures that they want more.

New Release Review! Dire Wolf Wanted (Ice Age Shifters #4) Carol Van Natta!

 

 

The magical world stands on the brink of war, unless two extraordinary shifters can bridge the gulf between them.

 

Dire wolf shifter and Shifter Tribunal agent Rayne Chekal poses as a prisoner to take down an illegal auction house that trafficks in shifters. Arvik Inuktan, agent for the Wizard Imperium and secret mythic shifter, infiltrated the auction staff with the same mission objective.

 

Rayne finds him sexy as hell, but confusing. Her inner wolf says they're in the mating dance, but to her, it feels more like a flailing tumble down the stairs. Arvik finds her irresistible, smart, and gorgeous. His inner beasts say Rayne is their mate, but he realizes he must track down his dark, forgotten past if he hopes to have a future with her.

 

However, when the auction house falls, they open a whole new can of worms. War is coming. Separated, they must figure out what they can do to stop this, and hope the other can forgive them for the choices they're forced to make.

 

When Rayne and Arvik meet on the battlefield, can they overcome their differences and work together to stop the evil, or will this war engulf the magical world?

 

Continue the enthralling paranormal romance with Dire Wolf Wanted, the fourth book in USA TODAY bestselling author Carol Van Natta's fun, action-filled, steamy-hot Ice Age Shifters™ series.

 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 

Dire Wolf Wanted is a complete story with an HEA and no cliffhanger, but your reading experience will be enhanced if you've read Shift of Destiny and Heart of a Dire Wolf first.

 

 

Excitement and adventure keep readers on the edge of their seat throughout the thrilling romance. Arvik and Rayne are more than they seem and this story quickly escalates as they both unleash their true selves to take on the bad guys and these strong, fascinating characters easily pulls readers right along with them. Some differences and some difficult choices will have to be overcome if they have any chance of a happy ever after but the chemistry sizzles and the passion heats things up even as circumstances force them apart which keeps readers wondering throughout this suspenseful romance.

 

The fast pace and smooth flowing plot ensures readers enjoy the thrills and adrenaline pumping intrigue throughout the story with daring escapes, rescues and an exhilarating battle that unites the lovers despite the fact that they are on opposing sides. This fascinating and wonderfully unique shifter world is a delightful reading experience that tantalize readers with magic, romance, action and suspense.

Release Day Review! Heart of a Dire Wolf (Ice Age Shifters #3) Carol Van Natta!
Heart of a Dire Wolf - Carol Van Natta Van Natta

 

 

To stay together, they'll have to escape prison, outsmart wizards, and solve the mystery of a magical sanctuary town.

 

Skyla Chekal is in trouble. She’s a prisoner in an illegal underground auction house that sells magical creatures. If they learn she's a dire wolf with free magic, they'll hold a special high-roller sale just for her. She needs to keep her head down and escape, but she can’t because she smells someone who stirs her in the way only a true mate can. She can't leave without him.

 

Siberian tiger shifter Nic Paletin can’t believe he’s found himself in a cage in an auction house run by wizards. As long as he continues to play dumb, he should be able to get out soon. But the intriguing smell of a woman who calls to his tiger has him tied up more than the shackles on his ankles.

 

As turned on as Skyla is by Nic’s intoxicating presence, she knows they first have to survive long enough to get free. Unfortunately, threats continue to escalate. In their escape, Skyla is sent somewhere else, and Nic has no idea where or what trouble she might be in. He must find her before the wizards do, plus figure out how to work together if they’re going to crack the secrets of a mysterious new-old town.

 

And they better hurry, because the greedy wizards not only know where they are, they're after the fabled treasures of this vulnerable sanctuary town.

Continue the enthralling paranormal romance with Heart of a Dire Wolf , the third book in USA TODAY bestselling author Carol Van Natta's fun, action-filled, steamy-hot Ice Age Shifters™ series.

 

 


The third book in the “Ice Age Shifters” continues the thrilling and adventurous stories of the first two. “In Heart of a Dire Wolf” we meet Skyla and Nic who are very strong and captivating characters who are both being held captive in an illegal auction house and readers can’t help but get caught up in their daring escape electrical attraction. This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the excitement flowing throughout the story as the couple use some unique and fascinating avenues in order to outrun their jailers and surprising twists keep the readers as well the characters on their toes. In addition, not only does these characters have to fight to stay alive, they are faced with a mysterious and suspenseful quandary when they try to crack the secrets behind a magical sanctuary town that disappeared.

 

There was never a dull moment to be found in this exhilarating romance as it held me captive from beginning to end. I really love the whole Ice Age shifter elements that adds such a unique and fascinating shifters to the story and I am definitely looking forward to more books in the “Ice Age Shifters” series.
