Release Week Review! The Coyote's Bride (Masters of Maria #6) Holley Trent!
The Coyote's Bride - Holley Trent

 

 

Related to one of the oldest shapeshifter legacies in Maria, Lily Baxter grew up knowing there was a chance she’d find romance among the supernatural. But certainly her idea of romance wasn’t a drunken one-night stand with a Coyote she loves to hate, a Vegas wedding, and soon after, a heartrending miscarriage. She and Lance Aitkenson obviously aren’t meant to be.

 

But while secretly coordinating their divorce far from the snoops back in town, her new husband gets jumped by man-hating jaguar shifters, and it’s up to her to smooth things over. There’s something stranger than usual about these Jaguars. Not only do they seem to have abilities no other shapeshifters have, but they claim a centuries-old connection to Maria’s resident goddess. They see strong-minded Lily as a kindred spirit, but Lance fears they harbor sinister motives.

 

Together, he and Lily might be able to unravel the secrets of the mysterious cult and prevent them from disturbing the peace back in Maria, but can they really work cooperatively when they’re so close to calling it quits? Or will they realize that they don’t need an accident as their excuse for sticking together?

Also available in Masters of Maria:
1 - THE DEMIGOD'S LEGACY
2 - THE ANGEL'S HUNGER
3 - THE WOLF'S JOY
4 - THE COYOTE'S CHANCE
5 - THE COYOTE'S COWBOY

 

Each Masters of Maria story contains a complete romance set in small-town Maria, New Mexico. Read earlier stories set in this exciting and magical world in the Desert Guards and Sons of Gulielmus series!

 

 

Not only was their romance one that disappointed Lily Baxter but their quick trip to end it lands this couple right into a modern western showdown not only between them but with a group of man-hating jaguar shifters with mysterious abilities.

 

Sparks fly in every direction throughout this thrilling showdown of epic proportions between Lily and Lance as their sizzling chemistry keeps them all worked up. They seem to rub each other the wrong way which keeps this relationship in extreme turmoil which leads to a ‘War of the Roses’ type relationship and has them engaging in heated encounters full of angst, snark and just plain meanness.

 

These two solid characters easily pull readers into their story and provide them with lots of wild entertainment throughout the fast paced and explosive plot, but that’s not all that’s keeps the readers glued to the pages as they are introduced to some mysterious man-hating jaguar shifters whose motives are anybody’s guess and of course Lola and Tarik make a few ambiguous visits.

 

I was completely charmed by Lily and Lance and their uproarious courtship throughout The Coyote’s Bride and I couldn’t help but sympathize with some of their personal issues involving miscarriages. Every visit to Maria is an entertaining and eventful one but I have to say that this one certainly never had a dull moment and I didn’t want to miss one second of it and with the way it ended (which the author was so nice to give an explanation for) I am certainly looking forward to reading the next story and finding out more. Note: Miscarriages are a very sensitive subject, but the author interjected it into the story in a non-invasive or offending manor and provided helpful information to readers.

New Release Review! Dark Captive (Spirit Wild #6) Kate Douglas!
Dark Captive - Kate Douglas

 

 

Stolen from her mother when she was still a tiny cub, the snow leopard Asha has spent her entire life in captivity, being traded from one owner to another through an illegal trafficking ring. But Asha also feels trapped in a much more profound way: as a Chanku with no access to the Tibetan grasses that would allow her to shift, she’s confined to her animal form, yearning for a part of herself she’s forever unable to reach. Until a merciful savior sets her free . . . and Leo Cheval comes into her life.

When word of Asha’s rescue from the animal trafficking ring reaches the Chanku, Leo is sent in to help her recover and bring her into the pack. As a leopard shifter himself, he’s uniquely qualified to connect with her and assess her trauma. What he never anticipated was the overwhelming chemistry their meeting would spark and the deep sensual need she would stir in him.

But even as Leo’s touch guides her body to feelings she never imagined, his deeply ingrained controlling streak threatens to crush the very desire he has awakened. And as their passion grows and a deep bond forms between them, Leo and Asha realize that only by submitting to her can he save them both. 

 

 

 

I just had a very exciting visit with the Chanku! The visit was full of exhilarating suspense, scorching hot passion and sweet romance – a great combination for ever reader.

 

In Dark Captive, I got to visit and enjoy some wonderful intimate moments with all my favorite Chanku and I also got to meet some new members and enjoy some sexy times with them as well. All the Chanku are strong, charismatic characters that easily draw readers in and they always ensure that readers indulge in some blazing hot passion while they easily connect with their readers and of course invite them to visit that intriguing, thrilling and passionate world. I have to warn you though that there was a few times in this visit that I had a hard time suppressing my tears for our new members situation and I also had to suppress my anger at the bad guys because this story certainly caused both emotions as well as causing desire to blossom so hot that I felt the need to fan myself quite often. The story is fast paced with has excitement and suspense building throughout as Leo introduces Asha to her new world as well rescuing others.

 

The Chanku world just continues to grow and become more exciting with every installment and Kate Douglas brings every page of it to exciting and vivid like with well written words that make it easy for readers to become caught up in the lives of the fascinating Chanku. In my case, I have to tell you that not only do I love each and every one of the sexy, charismatic characters but I totally enjoy every visit and I was completely enthralled with Dark Captive and I can’t wait for my next visit to the Spirit Wild world.

 

 

Dark Captive is the 6th book in the Spirit Wild series which includes:

  • Dark Wolf
  • Dark Spirit
  • Dark Moon
  • Dark Refuge
  • Dark Terror
  • Dark Captive

 

The Spirit Wild series picks up where the Wolf Tales series ends.

 

Dark Captive is available in print & ebook at:

Loki had how many wives?!
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

I've never yet been let down by Neil Gaiman and Norse Mythology certainly didn't break that winning streak. In this nonfiction book Gaiman covers a wide range of Norse myths and in the process destroys what Marvel had implanted in the minds (my mind at least) of what Asgard looked like and who inhabited it. For example, Marvel led me to believe that Loki and Thor were adopted brothers. Nope! In actuality, Loki was Odin's HALF brother sooooo the family dynamic just got a whole lot weirder. I think the best thing about Norse Mythology is that it justified my interest in Loki and non-interest (is that a word?) for Thor (who is described as all brawn and no brain). I really enjoyed learning about how these myths explained world events like earthquakes which were thought to be caused by Loki struggling against venomous poison inside of a mountain. And humans attained the gift of poetry from mead that was made from the blood of the wise god, Kvasir. Gaiman doesn't only focus on the 3 biggies (I'm talking Odin, Loki, & Thor) but also discusses the 'lesser' gods and in particular the events surrounding Ragnarok. Up until reading this book, I thought Ragnarok was another word for apocalypse but actually it's better termed as a time of grand change. Yes, the world as the gods came to know it will end but then it's time for a new world which isn't necessarily a bad thing (unless you're a god I guess). This would have been a 10/10 for me except that I kept wishing for illustrations culled from historical texts. This would have really added to the short stories and made it a standout. However, that doesn't stop this from being a very interesting read and I don't think it should stop any of you from grabbing it off the shelves.

 

What's Up Next: Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses by Bess Lovejoy

 

What I'm Currently Reading: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I Feel Happy Happy Happy
High Voltage - Karen Marie Moning


I am in my happy place. Dani, the woman has gone through some massive trials and made some huge transitions. In the beginning it was confusing, to see a young girl suffer so and be seen as more in the future. I admit I did not like young Dani, she was a thorn to me in the story. Oh there was some serious backlash towards Ms. Moning, speculations based on her age, before the tale was finished being told. If only they'd waited they would have seen this beautiful, wonderfully magical woman finally grab ahold of her red threads and become what she was ment to be. The truth of why this obsession was there made me jump and scream "YEH!" I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, you don't need to know more.
Another great book from Ms. Moning. She continues to be one of my top 5 authors, one I re-read from often. I can not wait for her next work.. Bravo Ms. Moning, you rock !

New Release Review! Wolf Tales 12: Exposed (Wolf Tales #12) Kate Douglas
Wolf Tales 12: Exposed - Kate Douglas

 

 

The final thrilling installment in the groundbreaking Wolf Tales series that captivated the world of erotic romance!

Even as their numbers have grown and they’ve spread out across the country, the Chanku have remained deeply connected by their mutual need for erotic pleasure and their unique shapeshifting abilities. Content to pursue their sensual way of life in relative anonymity, they’re stunned when their extraordinary nature is unavoidably revealed to the world at large—and fearful of the dangers they face from those who fear their differentness.

Realizing that the distance between them makes them vulnerable, they answer the silent call for all Chanku to come together at their pack alpha’s home in Montana. And in that setting, as they struggle to understand their new place in the world and defend themselves against suspicious and violent adversaries, they will discover a shocking revelation about their origins and their legacy. 

As the pack adapts to these new realities and reclaims their primal past, they will embark on a journey that will take them into uncharted territory and open up a spectacular, unimagined future . . . 

 

 

 

What an electrifying end to the Wolf Tales series! Kate Douglas ended the series with one heck of a sendoff, there was lots of surprising twists with lots of adrenaline pumping anticipation and suspense building throughout the story which keeps readers on the edge while the fascinating characters continue to draw readers in.

 

There was lots of hot and super-hot sex as usual with the sexy Chanku as well as all kinds of emotional turmoil and sweet romance that keeps readers connected to their world. The story was wonderful in that the whole of the Chanku world was involved in the story which, to me, really keeps up the feeling that I have really gotten to know these characters and their world as the series progressed.

 

The Chanku face some tough circumstances and life-changing events that add lots of excitement to the story as well as making it unpredictable and ensures that readers can’t put the book down because they just have to know every last detail.

 

I know I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading it and while I hate that the series is ending, I also think that it’s an appropriate time and Kate Douglas did a stupendous job of bringing this era to a close. Of course, I already know that this isn’t the end of the Chanku as Kate Douglas already has several books out in her Spirit Wild series which is the second generation of her fascinating world.    

 

 

 

Wolf Tales 12: Exposed is the final book in the Wolf Tales series.

 

From the Author: The new edition of Wolf Tales 12 is the same story as the original--new cover, typos (hopefully) all caught, and a much lower price.
But the members of the pack are just as hot as they've ever been!
