LONE WOLF by Jodi Picoult
Lone Wolf - Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is an excellent writer but I always hesitate to pick up her books because her subjects are so weighty yet timely.  Lone Wolf is the same.  It deals with euthanasia.  Not a pretty subject, but one that will touch most people at some point.  I liked the story.  I liked how it was written from each character's point-of-view so you get a well-rounded view of Luke.  I especially liked Luke's sections as he talks about wolves and their packs.  I learned a lot. 

 

The characters were well developed.  I had strong feelings about some of them.  I could understand Luke well.  Cara, I just wanted to turn her over my knee and paddle her.  She was so bratty.  She was my least favorite character.  I liked Edward.  Yes, he had to grow up more but he did manage to create a life for himself and survive.  I liked also the input of some of the peripheral characters.  It was interesting to see what outsiders thought of Cara, Edward, and Luke.

 

This was a good book.  It flowed well.  It read quickly because I never got bogged down in one character's emotions because of the changing points-of-view.  I read it in one day basically.  I could not put it down.

Book Tour & Review! Something To Howl About & Baby, I'm Howling For You (Alphaville #.5 & # 1) Christine Warren
Baby, I'm Howling For You (Alphaville) - Christine Warren
Something to Howl About - Christine Warren

 

 

 

Something to Howl About

 

WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps, in a brand-new paranormal romance series from New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren.

Dr. Annie Cryer has been called many things: Genius. Child prodigy. Scientific wonder.

Wolf Shifter.

Banished from her pack years ago, Annie’s lone wolf wandering has brought her to Alpha, Washington, home to all shifters who don't quite fit in in the "normal" shifter word. Now Annie has the chance to go back home...if only she can make good on a favor her alpha owes the mayor of “Alphaville.” But it's not much of a favor when you're helping the hottest shifter in town...

Grizzly shifter Jonas Browning has a clan in trouble. They haven't had a child born in over a hundred years...and their clan faces going completely extinct. Genetic scientist Anne Cryer has been sent to help save them. But what Jonas doesn't count on is being irresistibly drawn to the small wolf shifter, and his bear isn't about to let her go…

 

 

 

Christine Warren’s “Others” series is one of my favorites so I was very excited to know that she was writing a new series that takes place in the same world and Something to Howl About is the prequel to the new Alphaville series. The characters are strong, compelling and draw readers into the story and romance is full of sparks and heat which keep readers glued to the pages. The prequel is a great short story to get this series going, in fact the only thing that could possibly make it better would be if it was longer because I wasn’t ready for it to end, but that’s okay, I’m off to read Baby, I’m Howling For You now.

 

 

 

Something to Howl About is the prequel to the Alphaville series.

 

And is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N Nook   Google Play   Kobo   Ebooks.com   iBooks

Macmillan

 

Baby I’m Howling For You

 

 

 

WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

 

 

Well, I am sincerely pleased to announce that once again, Christine Warren has brought her fabulous world to life with well written words that paint vivid images that makes readers feel as if they are part of the story. The characters are strong, captivating and grab the reader’s attention right from the start and in this case, Renny and Mick draw readers into an emotionally turbulent romance that is full of heat and spice and you can practically feel the chemistry between them as it flies from the pages.

 

The fast paced plot is full of thrills and suspense that keep readers on the edge of their seat while a bad alpha keeps the danger coming as he has fixated on Renny and then the author adds a few surprising twists to keep readers guessing.  This story has it all with lots of romance, suspense, heat, great dialogue that makes it easy for the readers to relate to the characters and feel as if they really come to life and let me tell you the alpha males are super sexy and they are definitely playing for keeps, of course I don’t mind because they can certainly keep me.

 

Another great series from Christine Warren, which isn’t surprising since I love her other books. This book starts off with plenty of excitement and I was glued to the pages from very first one. I loved Alphaville and there is some really interesting characters that live there, so I can’t wait to visit again.

Out in April
Wolf Sanctuary: The Wolves of Speedwell ... Wolf Sanctuary: The Wolves of Speedwell Forge - Chuck Rineer

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley

                If you live in Pennsylvania, you might have heard of Wolf Sanctuary founded and run by the Darlingtons.  The Santuacry is a rescue sight for wolves that also educates visitors, though it is wolves first and visitors second.  In other words, you need to make a reserveration.

 

                Rineer’s book is a photographer’s look at the various packs that reside on the property.  It is not a history of the foundation or of the various packs and wolves (though a brief overview is given).  What is celebrated in this volume is the beauty of wolves in wonderful, striking photographs.  The book includes brief descriptions of the relationships between the wolves as well as some facts. 

 

                Truthfully, the book’s selling points are the pictures of wolves during wolf things.  Like standing and sleeping the snow, playing, sleeping, being pups.

 

                So beautiful.

Release Day Review! Dangerous Mating (A.F.L.A. #3) by Milly Taiden.
Dangerous Mating (An A.L.F.A. Novel) - Milly Taiden

 

 

An undercover mission exposes hidden longings in the irresistible paranormal romance series from the New York Timesbestselling author of Mating Needs

The Alpha League Federal Agency’s sworn duty is to protect humanity from the worst of the paranormal universe. Wolf-shifter Agent Bryon Day has been deep undercover for more than a year, investigating a human trafficking ring, when he goes MIA. Since A.L.FA. never leaves an agent behind, a team is sent to save him—or bring his body home. 

FBI agent and ace cryptographer Kari Tomlin is selected for the rescue task force. Under the ruse of a ditsy tourist, she searches an ancient European city for Agent Day. When she learns he’s locked up in the palace’s dungeon, she plans a covert jailbreak. Together they risk the dangerous, booby-trapped tunnels below the city for freedom…and a chance to discover if this really is a mate bond growing between them.

 

 

 

The first thing that I have to tell you about Dangerous Mating is that the heroine is an unexpected delight. Kari seems to be an unlikely agent with some quirky and unorthodox ways about her and she seems to be a little on the ‘accident prone’ side but yet at the same time she fits right in and delights readers. All the characters are strong, compelling and grab reader’s attention but Kari’s rescue of Bryon is draws readers in as the couple find themselves on a treacherous path to safety. Their romance is hot and steamy but filled with danger which keeps readers turning each and every page.

 

The action and suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seats with twists and turns that also keep them guessing. The bad guys are the kind that evoke all kinds of emotions from readers as they root for Kari and Bryon to take them down.  

 

Milly Taiden has brought another world to life with her well written words that paints vivid images and ensure that the readers feel as if they are a part of the story. The A.F.L.A. world is full of suspense, danger, excitement and captivating and sexy characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

 

Dangerous Mating is the 3rd book in the A.F.L.A. series.

 

Book 4 Fearless Mating is set to be released on April 17, 2018.

 

Dangerous Mating is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Kobo   iBook   GPlay

Fighting Instinct (L'Ange #2) by Mary Calmes
Fighting Instinct - Mary Calmes

A  very quick read. Cut out headache-inducing bickering and meaningless dialog and the story shrinks from 224 pages to about 124. Cut out rivers of blood and gun-waving, and you get it down to about 70 in no time. Then tune out the descriptions of posh surroundings and you are looking at mere 60. Pull out and burn the bush that the author beats around instead of moving the story forward and you can get maybe 40 pages of the actualstory
I am not going to review that story, just want to mention that yet another creature went through pain and suffering and was almost destroyed emotionally and physically so we could read about Arman and his guns.
