There’s not much that can get this grizzly shifter worked up — except a threat to the woman he has secretly loved for years. Then all bets are off, and he’s willing to risk anything — including the most closely guarded secret of his lonely shifter soul.

 

ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you'll love these books!

 

* No cliff hangers. Each story is a standalone paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect read for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billonaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales! *

Lure of the Bear is another marvelous addition to the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of The Heart series. 

 

Each book gives us a different shifter and couple to fall in love with. I would recommend reading the series in order, because previous characters appear and play major roles in the storyline, though you can read each book as a stand-a-lone. 

 

We continue on our storyline looking for the magical stones.

 

Hunter and Dawn where cute together. I loved Officer Dawn Meli the moment she was first introduced in Lure of the Dragon and then in Lure of the Wolf she finds out about shifters. Hunter has known Dawn since childhood and he has also known she is his mate for years. I loved the backstory; between them and that they where a little awkward with each other. These two have a strong connection, but Dawn’s got walls up and Hunter’s got some issues of his own. I loved Hunter and how sweet and understating he was. These two where so much fun to read about. 

 

I also love the storyline with the magical stones and the shifter brothers, who are brothers of the heart. They have come together to make their own family and it’s been wonderful watching each one find his mate and finally find peace and love. 

 

Lure of the Bear is full of suspense, action, adventure, and love. I can’t wait for the next installment. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Review - Bodyguard Bear by Zoe Chant (Protection, Inc #1)
Bodyguard Bear: BBW Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance (Protection, Inc. Book 1) - Zoe Chant

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

 

This cover is fabulous with both beasts on it!  This happens to be my favorite kind of cover because you know what kind of shifter you are getting and that it is definitely a shifter read!  I own this whole series!

 

This is the first book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.

 

Zoe Chant’s books are fast becoming my standard for picking a book that I can finish in one setting.  Her books always leave me feeling happy with my heart warmed.

 

Ellie is a paramedic with integrity who is insanely brave.  Hal is a bear who takes his job seriously and his mate even more so!  This story was action packed and as always I couldn’t put it down.  I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series!

 

I highly recommend to anyone if you have liked any of Zoe’s books so far, and if you haven’t what are you waiting for, her books rock!

Review - Black Bear Buns by Sable Sylvan (The Twelve Dancing Bears #3)
Black Bear Buns: A BBW Bear Shifter Menage Paranormal Romance Novella (The Twelve Dancing Bears Book 3) - Sable Sylvan

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

 

The cover is sparkly and has both the beasts and their bears on it!

 

This is the 3rd book in the series.  Of course this is for adults only due to the steamy content and yes it involves a trio or triad as it is called.

 

This book had me from the start.  I loved the mystery and the fact that it brings the Asher-Dixon clan into the series.  This book had many twists, turns, and intrigues concerning Ann.  Plenty of content to keep you gripped in the story and what was happening.

 

While it is not required to read the other books in the series, I do recommend it because it is interesting and unique.  Authors always amaze me with their creativity especially when it involves shifters which are my favorite. 

 

If you are a bear lover or already love Sable, then you won’t want to miss this story!

ARC Review: Damnation – Bonus Edition (Blue Moon Saloon) by Anna Lowe
Damnation - Bonus Edition - Anna Lowe

Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Damnation - Bonus Edition 

 Anna Lowe  
 Blue Moon Saloon  
 Twin Moon Press  
 November 1st 2016  
 eBook  
 205  
 ARC Review Copy  
 

 

Exclusive bonus edition chock full of extras!

 

This exclusive bonus edition includes the full story of DAMNATION (Book 1 of the Blue Moon Saloon series), plus the entire prequel, PERFECTION, and a bonus epilogue which is not available in any form anywhere except in this bonus edition. This special edition is also packed with rich extras such as “the making of” Damnation, recipes, and games.

 

DAMNATION
He hasn’t forgotten her, and she sure hasn’t forgiven him.

 

Jessica Macks is a she-wolf on the run from a band of murderous rogues. When she finds a job at a shifter bar, it seems like a safe haven from her hunted life on the road. But the minute she walks through the swinging doors of the Blue Moon Saloon and comes face-to-face with the man she once loved, she’s tempted to march right back out. No way, no how is she risking her heart to that infuriating alpha bear again.

 

Simon Voss thought he lost everything in an ambush months before: his home, his family, his past. His new job at the Blue Moon Saloon is a desperately needed fresh start on life. Then along comes Jessica, the irresistible she-wolf his clan forced him to reject years before. When Simon is obliged to hire Jessica and work side by side with the one woman to ever make his bear go wild, he’s half in heaven, half in hell. He hasn’t forgotten her, and she sure as hell hasn’t forgiven him. Is this just another path to heartbreak or his last chance to claim his destined mate?

 

PERFECTION

A sexy bear, a stubborn she-wolf, and a very cozy den.

 

It’s a stormy winter’s night in the mountains, and she-wolf Jessica Macks is desperate to find shelter. So desperate, she’ll even settle for an unoccupied bear den, despite all the warnings she’s heard about her pack’s mysterious neighbors. It doesn’t take long before unwanted company in the form of bear shifter Simon Voss comes lumbering in. The two can let out their claws and fight, or they can lower their defenses and keep each other warm. But the instinct to survive isn’t the only force at work in that cozy den — destiny is, too. Before Jessica and Simon know it, they’re cuddled together in human form and letting warm heat right over to hot as they give in to temptation for the very first time.

 

BONUS MATERIALS
- Exclusive bonus epilogue
- The "making of" the Blue Moon Saloon series
- The "making of" Damnation

Behind the doors of the Blue Moon Saloon, alpha shifters confront their darkest fears and their deepest desires. Each book is a complete standalone story — no cliffhangers!

Damnation the Bonus Edition comes with the entire prequel, Perfection, the full story of Damnation (Book 1 of the Blue Moon Saloon series), and a steamy bonus epilogue, The Mating Bite, that is only available in this exclusive edition plus a few more additional exclusive content.

 

This Bonus Edition is well worth purchasing. All the extra content is nicely done and who doesn’t love extra content. If I already didn’t own Perfection & Damnation, the single titles, I would buy this one instead. 

 

Reviews below on Perfection, Damnation, and The Mating Bite.

 

Perfection is the prequel to the Blue Moon Saloon series. 

 

Does it have to be read first. No. It’s a very short story that features our main characters from Damnation, Simon and Jessica, it’s their first meeting. 

 

This is an instal-thing, destiny. They know they are mates the moment they meet, but their are several obstacles for them to over come; before they can be together. Here they spend two days together, snowed in, getting all hot and heavy with each other. Their is a little foreshadowing, that even though they have found each other their future will be a ruff one, before they get their happy-ever-after. 

 

The story was just ok for me. It was nice to see their first meet, but really not necessary to know before going into Damnation or the the Blue Moon Saloon series. For fans of Ms. Lowe and her shifters, it’s a nice treat.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

 

 

What happens when old hurts still linger and old threats come calling?

 

Damnation is book one in the Blue Moon Saloon series by Anna Lowe. What a wonderful new series that brings us strong heroines, alpha heroes, shifters of all kinds, hot cowboys, action, and much more.

 

The Blue Moon Saloon series takes place in the same world as The Twin Moon Ranch series. What is important to note is that both series can be read separately even though they are in the same world coexisting side-by-side. The author does a fabulous job bring her world to life and working in the characters from the other series, but what’s impressive is that she made them feel brand new or if you are a fan, ones you have come to love.  

 

I devoured this book in one sitting. I had a great time with this second chance romance. I will never be board or get enough of Ms. Lowe’s characters and world. She is an outstanding writing that can bring her characters to life, pulling the reader in deeply, making you feel for them. 

 

Jessica and Simon have a past that caused them both to be hurt in more ways then one. These two had a few things to work out and also an old enemy that doesn’t want to see them together come around. These two go through so many emotions; before they finally clear the air and work everything out. When they finally hook-up again, well the sexy times are sensual, steamy, and romantic. As for our enemy it was rather quick, but you know they will be back.

 

Their is a prequel, Perfection, for Simon and Jessica. It’s their beginning, before everything went wrong. No, I have not read it. Should you read it before you read Damnation? Well some reviewers say yes, I on the other hand can’t say until I read it, but I felt the story stood on it’s own.

 

Damnation was a sweet second chance romance that will take you on a whirlwind of emotions, action, suspense, and love that never faded. I highly recommend this new series as well as her Twin Moon Ranch. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

 

The special edition short story only featured in this Bonus Edition, The Mating Bite.

 

This was a very short and sweet story. We get to see Simon and Jessica finally seal their bound with the mating bite. It’s sweet and oh so steamy sexy. Fan’s will love this exclusive story. 

 

I for one enjoyed The Mating Bite. The Blue Moon Saloon series has fast become one of my favorite shifter series to read. Ms. Lowe is a master at weaving emotional tales that pull you into the world and characters. 

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars
