Great Anthology
Star Crossed - Katalina Leon,Sabrina York,Ann Mayburn,Michelle Fox,Rebecca Royce,T.L. Reeve,Dena Garson,Virginia Cavanaugh

This anthology is crammed with a lot of great reads. While I haven’t gotten through all of them just yet, I really enjoyed the ones I read. Highly worth the purchase.

-Dark Sky by Katalina Leon - 3.5 Stars

Severin was Avery’s brother’s best friend and the only one for Avery when she was coming of age. Unfortunately he had never looked at her THAT way. Now 8 years later, he’s been through a lot but he realizes that Avery just might be what he needs.

This was a decent read. It was a nice full story. The characters were well put together. The only problem I really had was that, after 8 years and a lot of drama, both characters were very crazy about each other pretty quickly.

-Smoking Holt by Sabrina York - 5 Stars

Bella’s life is hitting bottom. She escapes to a vacation home she and her friends own a few days early to drink away her sorrows. She doesn’t expect Holt to show up early and she DEFINITELY doesn’t expect him to kiss her.

WOW. This story was smoking hot!! I’ve read several stories from this author and every story I read seems to take on a different style, making the characters and stories unique and enjoyable. I really enjoyed this story and I highly recommend.

-Sodom and the Phoenix by Ann Mayburn

Tanwen and Master Adam

-Operation Burlesque by Michelle Fox - 5 Stars

Ruby Palmer fell in love with clothing design when she was a little girl. She just didn’t imagine ti would take her to the big top one day, literally. When a fantasy night with the circus magician, Blake Cannon, finally comes true, she has no idea how in danger she’s become.

This was a quirky and fast paced story that had everything in it. I loved Ruby’s character. I felt bad for everything she went through to survive. Blake’s character was also great. I really liked some of the side characters as well. I highly recommend.

-Under The Lights by Rebecca Royce-4 Stars

Teirney is a stage manager for a Broadway play. She’s seriously attracted to Ian, the Hollywood star currently running a special engagement in the show, but feels she isn’t the type to garner any kind of attention. After he takes a week vacation, he seems to have decided to turn his full attention towards her.Teirney has no idea how committed he is or why he’d even want to be with her. Ian is out to prove to her just how committed.

This was a quick read, but the author does a great job with giving a pretty good story and enough detail to add character to her characters. Teirney is pretty much a loner. she loves her job and is comfortable sitting in the background while making sure big productions go off without a hitch. I found myself relating to her, not to mention her reaction after her and Ian’s first time together. I liked Ian a lot. He was at a point that he knew what he was ready for in life and was determined to get it. I liked that the author didn’t make him rogish just because he was a successful actor. His dedication to doing everything he could for Teirney to bring her out of her shell (including a lot of reading:)) made him instantly likable.

This was another great book by a great author. I recommend it for anyone that likes a quick, hot contemporary.

Portrait of a Lone Wolf (Black Hills Wolves Book 7)
Portrait of a Lone Wolf (Black Hills Wolves Book 7) - Katalina Leon The love scene is wonderfully well done. The story is short, so it doesn't beat around the bush for very long. In the end, most readers will root for the couple.

The editor could have done a better job. I noticed a handful of errors.

Portrait of a Lone Wolf

 

Black Hills Wolves #7

Genre: Parnormal Romance – Wolf Shifters

Published February 20th 2015

By: Katalina Leon

Publisher: Decadent

 

Blurb:

 

A mixed-blood Native American wolf-shifter, abandoned by a teenage mother and ignored by an absentee father, Rio Waya has never fit in or felt worthy of love. But when he comes home to the Black Hills, he realizes he wants a mate of his own.

 

Recovering from a cheating ex who started a new family behind her back, Sela López seeks escape to pull her life back together. As a documentary filmmaker and wildlife photographer, she rents a cabin in the Black Hills with plans to film the beleaguered wolf population. But she’s so busy looking through a camera lens she doesn’t see trouble coming.

 

Sparks fly as mutual fears and vulnerabilities surface when Sela and Rio meet. She can’t figure out why the mysterious Mr. Waya is so anxious about having a documentary made of the Black Hills Wolves. But when his secret is exposed, all hell breaks loose. Can Rio win Sela’s trust and soothe her fears about allowing a hunky wolf-shifter into her heart?

~ 3.5 Portrait of a Lone Wolf Stars ~

 

Portrait of a Lone Wolf is book seven in the Black Hills Wolves series by Katalina Leon. I have been reading this series out of order, which is unusual for me, but each novella feels like they can be read as a stand-a-lone. KLeon is also a new to me author and I found her writing to be enjoyable. 

 

Sela our human comes to Los Lobos to heal and film the wolves in the area. Her character is one that is determined, stubborn, tough, and independent.

 

Rio our park ranger and full-blooded wolf. He tries to discourage Sela from filing, but when that doesn’t work he decides to help in an unusual way.

 

As for this series I might understand more about the Los Lobos wolves if I did read the series in order. Each book focuses on one couple. We don’t get to see, learn, or get much of a feel for the Los Lobos wolf pack. What we do get is a quick insta-love, where things move fast between the couple. I like Rio. He had this master plan to take things slow, but that goes up in flames when Sela sees him shift. I liked that he was/is straight forward on what he wants from her. Sela took things rather well after finding out. That first conversation was a little tense, but they got past it. The sex was sensual and sweet for this story, with both parties getting what they needed. We also get an idea of who Sela and Rio are as individuals. Very well developed characters for such a short novella. I also found it interesting to learn that the wolf shifters are derived from the Great Spirit of Waya.

 

The only thing that bothered me was the ultimate in their first conversation, but that did get rectified. 

 

All around Portrait of a Lone Wolf was a good read. If you enjoy quick insta-love reads, then this book is for you.

Excerpt-02-grey-banner

“Medium rare.” Gee set a steaming hamburger buried beneath heaps of fries and onion rings in front of Sela.

Everything on the plate looked delicious. “Thank you. I thought I ordered this to go?”

“Stay awhile. Enjoy your food.” Gee gave Rio a sickly sweet little grin. “L.A. stood up to you. I like her.”

The crease between his brows deepened. “Gee, no one asked your opinion.”

She gingerly picked up a fistful of scorching hot fries and ferried them over to Rio’s plate.

He appeared puzzled. “Why?”

“Peace offering.” She wondered what he looked like when he smiled. “I’m sure yours are cold by now.”

Rio picked up one of the token offerings, lifting the hot french fry to his lips. He didn’t even care he was about to get burned big time. In fact, he wanted the pain. Better to take the punishment now than suffer a shitload of hurt after he did something stupid like make a play for Sela López, which absolutely, positively could not happen. To his eyes, she was knockout gorgeous with killer curves. She had plenty of sass, too. She hadn’t backed down a bit from his most withering I- just-put-you-in-your-place look.

Something else caught him off-guard—her scent. One whiff of her subtle female aroma had brought his blood to a boil.

Holy crap, what had he gotten himself into? By the tone of her e-mail inquiries about the cabin, he’d come to the false conclusion Miss López was a dried-up academic collecting data about the Los Lobos wolf population. Instead, a Latina temptress with an ass that made him want to bite his fist and whimper had shown up.
