Raw Heat by Charlotte Stein Review
Raw Heat - Charlotte Stein

Serena has spent her entire life in the underground, hiding with the rest of humanity from the werewolf plague above. Then she begins taking care of Connor—a werewolf the humans have captured to experiment on, in the hopes of uncovering a cure—and finds her entire belief system shaken.Connor isn’t a vicious animal, hell-bent on the destruction of the human race. He’s kind, thoughtful, and above all—absolutely delicious. The feelings he’s starting to inspire are sending Serena out of control…lewd, filthy, glorious feelings, which could cost her job as a nurse. Not to mention her life.Lust and love between a wolf and a human are strictly forbidden. But for Connor, Serena may be willing to break all the rules…

Well, that was dark. This is a grim world where pretty much everyone is awful.

 

The hero and the heroine are shining lights in the world and the heroine's struggle to overcome what she has been taught is compelling.

 

I longed for Connor's point of view as we are so locked into the heroine's and it would have made the world richer (as he knows more than she does).

 

Sexy, emotionial quick read.

Review

These short stories are all wonderful little romps into the Changeling World.

 

"Echo of Silence" has a wonderful Psy hero and a heroine of middle eastern origin. The love story is a lovely balance of honoring cultural traditions, becoming a fuller version of the self, and skin hunger.

 

I was a little sadden we didn't get Sea Shifter as the heroine or hero but I adored who we got.

 

"Dorian" was the least interesting to me not because it wasn't good but because I really would have loved another full romance and this little tidbit as a bonus. Dorian is grand.

 

"Partners in Persuasion" captures the play of power in a relationship and how many ways there are to fit together. I love me a beta hero so Felix is my man. He is cool. The heroine was a little low on eq at times but the love story was well earned in the end.

 

"Flirtation of Fate" had a lot of angst but the hero and the heroine were both vibrant. The conflict that kept them apart needed more time to really be worked through but I was happy for them and the mystery plot was nice.

Shadow Wolf - Jane Godman

Hebdrik’s daughter Valetta was missing. Hendrik’s friend Samson was there to help Hendrik find Valetta. Hendrik had retired from the Brotherhood of the Midnight Son but Samson still belonged to the Brotherhood and was Hendrik’s best friend. Samson nor Hendrik had ever heard of the Shadow Wolf. A Shadow Born wolf is a rare spirit form that  can form a bond with another species of wolf copying everything about them until it becomes a mirror image of the host. The Shadow wolf’s purpose is to breed with the host werewolf. Once it succeeds the problems will arise. The cubs of the Shadow wolf known as the Shadow Born have the power to destroy the host species. The wolves of the  Guardians Of Hati believe hendrik is harboring A Shadow Born werewolf. Valetta told Samson it was true as she was the Shadow Born werewolf. Her mother had left Valetta a letter to open whens he was twenty one. So Valetta had been dealing with that knowledge by herself for two years as her mother had asked Valetta not to tell her father Theresa - Valetta’s mother- had been a  Shadow wolf Samson had a mate -Anna- who had been killed while he was out hunting and Samson held that guilt to himself. Samson’s feelings had shut down until five years ago when Valetta had kissed him. Every since she had shifted the first time Valetta had sensed something deep inside herself . Valetta had not allowed herself to shift in two years since she had read the letter. When Hendrik had went out two weeks ago for a couple hours his daughter was home but when he came back she was gone but her car was still there and her purse and phone were still in the kitchen. In the two weeks Valetta had been missing there was no word from her or from whoever had taken her. Hendrik was a well known and respected figure in Alaskan politics and he was also an Arctic werewolf.A vicious motorcycle gang seems to be targeting Hendrik. Samson asks if Hendrik if he thinks this Shadow Born stuff was coming from the motorcycle gang targeting him. Hendrik said the timing was right. The gang turned up about the same time the campaign against Hendrik started. Also the members of the gang look like Arctic werewolves. Samson had been looking for Valetta for days and had met about every motorcycle gang leader in a fifty mile radius. The last gang had a girl with them and her name was Cindy who had been kidnapped two years ago. Cindy told Samson  a gang came into their territory and they had a girl named Valetta with them and she had been angry when Cindy had seen her. The gang's name had been The Guardians Of Hati- who was the wolf God of the Arctic wolves. Then  Samson finally met up with The Guardians Of Hati and the leader was Valetta. Valetta had fallen in love with Samson when she was a teen and at eighteen had offered herself to Samson but Samson had gently but firmly turned her down.After that Samson had stayed away from Hendrik for five years.because he had really wanted Valetta and felt it wasn’t right.  But he had come very close to accepting her. Valetta had taken over the gang with no problem but she knew eventually she would come up against the real person behind all the hate against her dad. Samson offered to stay so he could help.

I loved this story it was a good read and kept my interest all the way through. I liked how things just fell together or so it seemed. I enjoyed how Samson was so attracted to Valette but it was his best friend’s daughter so he was tore but Valetta had never stopped loving Samson.  If I were Hendrik I would want someone as good and brave and strong to be with my daughter. I liked the action in this story and I love how the Arctic wolves are different even those that could shift when they wanted they still maintained the way of the Arctic wolf and the love and draw of the Midnight Sun. All and all a great story. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and i highly recommend.

Great Story and Characters
Ice Wolf - Jane Godman

Arctic werewolves could only shift or be killed  during the light of the midnight son. The midnight son called to the arctic werewolves like the moon called to other werewolves. Gunner was the alpha of the arctic werewolves and Santin of the Siberian werewolves was the alpha and enemy of the Arctic wolves. Santin went after Gunner with a silver knife but Elliott jumped on his back and Gunner’s hand was the only thing affected. Elliott Wilder was a professor at the University of Alaska. Elliott knew his colleagues regarded him as an oddity. The fact is Elliott was a loner, eccentric person. Gunner sat in Elliott office. Elliott taught Arctic anthropology. Gunner had been Elliott’s mentor and Gunner told Elliott Santin was back and has threatened Elliott personally. Gunner said Santin will come after anyone Elliott cares for. Elliott said he had no family or friends so there was no one for Santin to hurt him with. Elliott felt guilty for turning Gunner down but he already had PTSD. He’d only know this the last fifty years. For three hundred and fifty years Elliott thought he was losing his mind. Seven- only seven Arctic werewolves- the bravest and the strongest alphas made up The Brotherhood. As Elliott was set to leave he heard his name being called, the woman was an Arctic werewolf and she was Jenny Piper- Professor J E Piper and she wanted to discuss a collaboration between their two departments. But she was three hours late. Then Elliott found he had a flat and Jenny offered to call a friend who would fix it and have it back to Elliott in the morning and she would give him a ride home tonight. Jenny gave Elliott the outline of her proposal they could share resources and expertise. But that would mean they share one afternoon a week for the next semester. Elliott already knew there was no way he was going to do a collaboration  with Jenny. Jenny was determined about the collaboration and Professor Wilder was hot and she would get him to agree.jenny wondered what had happened to Professor Wilder as Arctic wolves were sociable not solitary. Jenny wasn’t alone by choice, she had barely made it to her teens before her family had been murdered by hunters. Gunner showed up at Jenny’s home. Before Elliott even got to his apartment Santin was there and barefoot meaning he was ready to shift. But Elliott could only shift with the midnight sun. There was a unique bond between Arctic werewolves. Elliott had almost forgotten what physical attraction felt like but he was definitely attracted to Jenny. His inner wolf was setting the pace and that seared Elliott. Then Gunner told jenny they would be going to meet with the   Brotherhood. Jenny was never meant to be alone she craved the security and organization of a wolf pack. That is why she hadn’t hesitated when Gunner suggested she join the elite Brotherhood. It offered everything jenny had been missing: fellowship, belonging, loyalty, and a common purpose. It also appealed to Jenny’s warrior spirit. Three werewolves showed up at jenny’s , gunner and Jenny slowed them down long enough to leave. Then Elliott and Jenny were heading to Jotunheim. When at their hotel before meeting the Brotherhood the next day jenny wanted to go out and play in the snow. Finally Elliott joined her and then his control broke and he kissed Jenny as though he was branding her. He took Jenny back to the hotel room Elliott had tried to fight having sex with Jenny but he gave in. Besides Jenny pointed out that if they had sex as humans she wouldn’t get pregnant and they would not be mated for life. Jenny became Elliott’s obsession. Elliott no longer wanted to be part of the Brotherhood as the nightmares  are already had were enough. Once Santin was dead he was walking away for good. Elliott and Jenny met up with the the other five members of the Brotherhood and went out to the compound. Santin had already been there and destroyed the generator and radio now Gunner could not contact them. Elliott knew better than to want forever he could barely take care of himself with his nightmares and all that his spirit was damaged for anything other than isolation and mediocrity. Elliott blamed himself for Gunner losing his hand but Gunner told him anyone would have paused for a minute and he got to Santin real fast even though Elliott knew he had a silver knife. Elliott found some of that guilt lift from his shoulders. Now to kill Santin.

This was an excellent story I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The plot was great. I loved that Gunner took some of the guilt from Elliot’s shoulders. There is plenty of action and intrigue in this story. I liked there was a Goddess that was the mother of all werewolves also. Jenny and Elliott were a beautiful couple I thought. I hated it when Jenny got hurt and almost died and the pain Elliott felt. All and all a great story. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.

Legal Wolf's Mate by Eve Langlais Review
Legal Wolf's Mate - Eve Langlais

Taking on a pro bono murder case isn't a problem for a lawyer who enjoys a challenge. Discovering his new client is his mate? A tad more complicated. Gavin has no intention of settling down, especially not with a woman accused of murder. But the beautiful, fiery Megan has his blood boiling and his heart racing, and it doesn't take Gavin long to know that his fate is sealed...

While I like the heroine and hero a lot, I just didn't like the story telling or the romance. It might work for you but it didn't work for me.
