Diablo Lake: Moonstruck by Lauren Dane $1,99
Diablo Lake: Moonstruck - Lauren Dane

Katie Grady left Diablo Lake to get over a humiliating breakup. But her family needs her help, so she's back, in a sublet right across the hall from the guy she's lusted after for years. Jace Dooley is hotter than ever, and their friendship picks up along with massive doses of grown-up chemistry.

The very scent of Katie sharpens Jace's canines, makes the wolf within him stir. There's nothing more alluring to a Pack Alpha than a sexy female who is so very in charge. She won't be coddled, but if he plays his hand just right she might be convinced to become his.

Katie presents a challenge to Jace's wolf nature, whose chief instinct is to protect. Especially now that she's coming into the magic that is her birthright—and suddenly Jace isn't the only one who's interested in Katie or the raw power she's just learning to use.

Count on Me
Count on Me - Lauren Dane Love love loved it! It was really great to read about a romance with external conflict instead of internal for once. The fact that it's also a bit of a romantic suspense made it a million times more enjoyable, too.

Royal and Caroline sizzled... They were perfect together and their sexytimes were smokin' hot. I loved how they supported each other and had each others backs. Caro dealt with Anne, Royal's ex, perfectly. I didn't like Anne much in previous books and I really hated her in this one until she wised up. Royal being all sneaky alpha was really sexy and I dig his reaction to the racist assholes that have Caroline grief. Their romance was awesome. Just awesome. No conflict between them, no Big Misunderstandings, no denial of emotions... It was a nice change from chickenshit characters that refuse their own happiness.

As for the murderer/stalker... The author handled that really well. It took up the right amount of page time, it was appropriately disturbing, and the threats weren't over-the-top. My only complaint is that I wish it had turned out to be somebody we had already met, like one of the racist assholes. Because they totally deserved to be thrown in jail for the rest of their lives.

This is definitely one of my favorite Lauren Dane books, without a doubt. She just nailed it this time. Homerun. Bullseye. Whatever. I'd absolutely recommend it.

I wrote this review on my phone, so please ignore any misspellings or typos.

Great Story and Characters
Wolf Unbound (Cascadia Wolves) by Lauren Dane (2009-01-01) - Lauren Dane

Teagan had lost her mate 4 years ago. She was a werewolf and the usually mate for life. Luckily there had been an anchor in the tri bond so Teagan didn’t also doe but her anchor Abe had already found his mate so he could not step in for Teagan’s husband and mate Lucas. Lucas had been everything to Teagan her best friend. Partner, her mate. Teagan had three dreams in the last month of Lucas the dream two weeks ago  made it clear he wanted her to let go of him and start to live again and find a new love and mate. There was something big coming. Teagan had been living with her brother Lex and her sister in law Mia. Lex was The enforcer of the pack and her other brother Cade was the Alpha of the Cascadia pack. Teagan was ready to go home it was only twenty miles from Lex’s home. Mia tells Lex to let her go. Pellini  is in an enemy who is looking for any way he can hurt one of them. Teagan is a guard on lex’s Enforcer team. Teagan is closest to Layla even though she has a twin Megan. Layla is the one that got her through the death of Lucas and the hard horrific time after. Lucas had been an Army Ranger something he had always wanted to do. Layla was glad to see Teagan start to come back to life after so long. Lucas had been killed in Afghanistan. Teagan went to Club De Sade - a BDSM club. Teagan was looking for someone who would use a flogger and knew how to use it right. Teagan was a submissive is this aspect of her life only. There was a human looking for a regular sub but Teagan wasn’t ready to commit but Ben agreed to spend that evening with Teagan but he wanted her blindfolded before she came into the room with him. But her friend Ryan was going to observe through a window to make sure Teagan was ok while she was with Ben. After their session Teagan was surprised how strongly she reacted to Ben. Ben asked Teagan if he could buy her a drink teagan suggested coffee as she still had to go to work. Ben was a cop but had been doing a lot of work on Pellini and with the werewolf packs. Templeton Mancini was the Alpha of the National Pack which was the ruling pack of all the packs. Warren Pellini believed Templeton and the National’s pack enforcer Jack Meyers were in his pocket. But in reality they were working with the FBI and some of the other packs to try to bring down Pellini. Pellini pretty much taken over Sargasso and Quinta- they were packs on the border which made sense as he could move drugs and guns a lot easier now. Pellini was working on on Michigan and maple for the same reasons. They have to find out if Pellini has the virus before they make a move.otherwise human and wolves would be in terrible danger. There had been a lycanthropy virus had been stolen and it was a big threat. Ben had been a good cop for fifteen years. Then Teagan and Ben kissed Teagan but stopped at that. Cade warned Ben not to hurt his sister. When Teagan went out to patrol she scented two wolves she didn't recognize and gun oil. Teagan was a woman who went by her gut it had served her well. Something in Ben called to Teagan and made her respond in a way she hadn’t in a long time. Teagan didn’t want to ignore that. Ben and Teagan had sex and then Ben passed out which meant they had mated. Ben was completely stunned and was backing off and Teagan cried as he was leaving. Being mated was like being married in the human world only more intense. The next morning when she went to her brothers everyone could smell Ben and Teagan had mated. Teagan threatened Cade with a gun to his head if he didn’t leave her mate alone. Mia went to talk to Ben as she had been human when her and Lex mated and all she had went through might help Ben accept things a little easier. Ben was ready for a girlfriend but not a wife.

I absolutely loved this paranormal story it was excellent. I loved when Teagan put a gun to her brother and alpha’s head in defense of Ben even though he had hurt her Ben was Teagan’s mate and her first loyalty was to him. I had to laugh. I loved how Ben got possessive when he seen another man in Teagan’s home when he went to talk to her. I also love how protective the wolves were with each other and touchy feely. Also how Ben immediately agreed to be bitten and turned so he could go find Teagan and rescue her. Also how Ben pulled Teagan back from death. Just will say loved the whole story and is one of my new favorites. I really couldn’t find anything to complain about. I loved the plot and the characters and all the ins and outs of this story and i highly recommend.

Wolves' Triad - Lauren Dane

Tracy knew werewolves mated for life and she was a werewolf. When tracy found Nick who is an Enforcer and second for the Pacific pack Tracy was very happy. Nick and Tracy knew after the mating bond began they would need a third werewolf to be an anchor for their bond to be complete and successful. This would help balance Tracy in the bond. Then Tracy meets Gene who's with the National pack but  is more mature and calm and he offers to be an

werewolf and he offers to become the anchor for Nick and Tracy. But then Tracy develops feelings for Gabe as well as for Nick. this causes a very rare thing to happen called a  tri mate bond the first time this had happened in fifty years. Things have to change though until they work for all three werewolves involved. But there was problems in the werewolf pack  pack and and danger from Warren Pellini and the werewolf Mafia. There really wasn’t much time for anything. Tracy was the youngest sister of the Cascadia Wolves ruling family.

I had mixed feelings about this story. It was fast paced yet some things just happened a little too quickly. I liked the thought of a tri mate bond and how it was explained as why a anchor was needed. I liked how Tracy knew what she wanted ands wasn’t afraid to stand up for it. There was a lot to this story : love, twists and turns, lust, action, werewolves, tri mate bond, danger. Werewolf mafia, money laundering, assault, suspense, intrigue, kidnapping and more. The sex scenes were hot. But  something that oftens ruins a story or a good rating occurred here which is a cliff hanger and I hate those. So this quickly became a three.

Mac had spent years in the Army then went back to college preparing himself to come back and lead his pack.Mac literally bumped into Aimee at the bar. Aimee went back to her friends after her and Mac spoke for a couple of minutes. Mac was attracted to Aimee but her best friend was married to Mac’s archrival who his mom seemed to have a never ending hate for as well as Aimee’s best friend Katie.but the alienation between the wolves and witches was starting to feel normal and that had to be stopped.

Mac knows his father won’t step down and he will have to fight him to take over the pack and start to fix things. Then Dwayne announces how Aimee had been with a married man and calls her a whore and that she was unfit to be mayor or part of his pack.

I loved this story. A new favorite for me. It had a fast pace and a great plot. I loved how Mac knew he would be going against his family to start something with Aimee. Also how Mac defended Aimee to anyone who tried to hurt her in anyway even his dad and brother. I loved Katie’s and Aimee friendship it was beautiful to see. I also like how Mac just uprooted the life he had to come back home. I also liked the fact Jace and Mac respected and liked each other even with the problems going on.  The only thing I would have added is what was wrong with Scarlett and eating at her. Otherwise a perfect book as far as I am concerned i loved the characters and the ins and outs and I highly recommend.
