Lara has always relished being a thorn in Mason’s paw. When she was chosen as pride Enforcer, it was easier than ever to get under the passionate shifter’s skin. But with the scent of humans in the air comes a threat she’s powerless to battle alone.

 

It’s time Lara unites with the one man she needs, the one man she’s secretly drawn to…as if by fate.

 

If there’s one thing Mason hates more than relinquishing control to a female, it’s the attraction he feels for the fiery lioness. Joining forces with Lara against an insidious enemy only makes their primal bond hotter—and the two of them stronger.

Claiming His Lioness Excerpt


Copyright © 2018 Kerry Adrienne


One, two, three, four…

 

A deep breath, and the world didn’t seem quite as red. Another breath. Don’t let him get to you.

 

“Women have roles and men have roles.” Mason cleared his throat then narrowed his eyes. “Not better or worse. Different.”

 

“This isn’t the Middle Ages.” Her voice was calm. Soft but firm.

 

“I know. Women have babies. Men fight.”

 

“Wow, seriously? Women have babies and fight. You saw how much help the lionesses were at the cave. We’d have lost a lot more lions if we hadn’t been there…to fight. We weren’t there to nurse cubs.” He was getting to her. She kicked at the leaves on the ground.

 

Only an hour or so till dark. The faint strains of sunset were already slanting through the trees, painting an orange glow to the surroundings, and the forest sounds were shifting to nocturnal melodies.

 

“You helped a lot and I appreciate that. My point is, why not let the men take care of you now? We aren’t in desperate need of your help like we were at the cave, so why not let us protect you?”

 

He really didn’t get it. Lara started to speak but paused. What could she say to make him understand? Did he really think women had roles that were so defined, they couldn’t do other things too? Or did he feel that it was his role to make sure women were safe and secure?

 

Regardless, it was obnoxious. And a prime example of how tall, dark and dangerous wasn’t enough.

 

“It’s noble of you to want to protect the women.” She chewed the inside of her cheek, trying to maintain her calm and phrase things in a nonconfrontational way. No point in having him dismiss her thoughts because he felt intimidated. “But you don’t need to protect us unless we ask you to. We can protect ourselves. You should accept the help or you’re going to have a lot of pissed-off lionesses. Trust me, you don’t want that.”


Mason looked deeper into the forest, his shoulders bunched with tension. His back, broad and sloping to a muscular ass, filled his black T-shirt perfectly. Wrestling with him wasn’t so bad, was it? In other circumstances, it could be a lot of fun.

 

She might even win.

 

She fought the urge to run her hand over his shoulders to comfort him and satisfy her craving. Yank his T-shirt off and press herself against those muscles. They were definitely hard. She’d felt them when he lay across her on the ground.

 

No. She shook her head.

 

Mason was off-limits.

Ida: A Sword among Lions: Ida B. Wells and the Campaign against Lynching - Paula J. Giddings

Not only should we thank Toni Morrison for her beautiful novels and wonderful essays, but also for pushing Giddings to write this important biography of Ida B. Wells.  And Giddings deserves thanks and love times ten for this work.

 

                I didn’t realize how unusual some of my schooling was until I started to teach.  For instance, because I had a teacher who was a descendent of Sally Hemmings and who told the class the story of Sally Hemmings, I always took that relationship with Jefferson as a given fact.  It wasn’t until I was teaching that I realized some students in this day when Dr. Gordon-Reed has proven the fact, that people still are not told of the history.

 

                But even with that background, I did not hear about Ida B Wells until after college when I was reading a book that referenced her.  I looked her up.  Today, we are lucky because her work is very accessible with the rise of e-books and texts.  Giddings’ book does this famous woman a service but will also leave you wondering why it took so long.  (Not that this is Giddings fault and she does examine some of these questions).

 

                Ida B. Wells was a woman who most likely was not easy to get along with but who needs more statues because we should remember her and shout her name from the roof tops.  It is because of Wells’ work as a journalist that we have the first major studies about lynching, a part of American history that we have yet to fully acknowledge and come to terms with as a nation.  Perhaps her work on this dark issue has lead to her unjust and incorrect second tier status; a nation wants to forget such things.  It shouldn’t though. 

 

 

                Born to former slaves who died when she was in her teens, Wells worked first as a teacher and then as a journalist and activist.  In fact, Giddings includes in the photo section, a post that showcases Wells, Dubois, Washington, and Douglass as the famous speakers on race post-Civil War.  During the course of her career, Wells addressed the politics and racism of rape, of education, and of protesting in addition to lynching.  She was instrumental in the founding and running of several black groups

 

                She was a hell of a woman, and not a tradition meek and mild sort either.

 

                Giddings’ biography perhaps focuses more on Wells’ personal life, her interior life being difficult to know or evaluate.  It is still a riveting book.  Giddings’ prose is lively and clear.  While there is a sense of Wells keeping herself back, Giddings does an excellent job of not only detailing the historical times but also examining the possible reasons for Wells’ drive.  She also does not make out Wells to be saint than sinner.

 

                A must read.

Lions & Liars
Lions & Liars - Kate Beasley
Frederick just wants to be popular and important. I think many 5th grade students feel like Frederick, but Frederick takes this position to the extreme in this novel. This novel is funny and yet it is serious in sections, as Frederick comes to understand life and who he is.
 
When his family’s vacation plans get cancelled, Frederick feels as if the world is coming to an end. No longer able to be pampered on a cruise, Frederick attends his friend’s birthday party where a surprise is waiting for him. A humorous gift is presented to Frederick which was supposed to create playfulness and laughter amongst the friends but instead it generates bitterness and friction. Frederick takes his gift, leaving his friends behind, as he tries to make a point with his friends. I soon realize that Frederick is the last person who should be left alone with such a gift but as I laugh my way through this section.
 
Frederick later finds himself at a camp. This could be his saving grace, as no one knows him but the campers think he is Dash, a boy who was signed up for this camp experience. Frederick accepts this boy’s identity and he is immediately welcomed with open-arms by the other male campers. Dash’s reputation is well-known and now Frederick is popular and he is relishing in the attention of the other campers.
 
I thought it was funny how Frederick just assumes Dash’s identity without knowing anything about him. The immediate transformation of Frederick was crazy, as he instantly began to shine and I could almost see him walking around with his head up. Frederick thought life would be great when he would become popular and well-liked but when he finally achieves this, he soon realizes other things occur in his life, that need to be addressed. Life does not stand still.
 
I liked this novel as I felt it addressed some real-life issues that kids face and I liked the way it handled them. I really enjoyed the cast of characters, they were fun and made the book interesting. I think this novel is great for boys and girls and would be a great read aloud. I highly recommend this novel.

Release Day Review! The Big Alpha in Town by Eve Langlais, Milly Taiden & Kate Baxter!
The Big Alpha in Town - Eve Langlais

 

 

Three hot stories about three sexy shifters from a trio of today's hottest paranormal romance authors, headlined by bestselling authors Eve Langlais and Milly Taiden!

 

Bearing His Name


Meeting his mate should have been cause for celebration. There’s just one teeny tiny problem. Jade thinks Ark might have impregnated her sister. He didn’t, but convincing Jade is going to take a bit of honey.

Owned by the Lion


Keir’s been told to stop playing the field and settle down—difficult advice for a hard and hot man with a lion’s heart to follow. But his sights have always been set on Ally. She’s his mate, plain and simple. With her sweet and delicious curves, she’s nothing but sugar and trouble all rolled into one. But he’s known her and sparred with her for years. She’s his best friend’s little sister, and it’s going to take a whole new level of convincing that he’s the mate for her.

 

No Need Fur Love


Moving with his pack to the tiny town of Stanley, Idaho has Owen Courtney a little on edge. With literally no women in sight, Owen will be lucky to find a date, let alone his true mate. But you know the saying about a werewolf walking into a bar…


Gorgeous wood nymph Mia Oliver is on a mission: Find a suitable male to get her good ‘n pregnant and provide her with an heir. But when Mia decides to pick up a gorgeous and oh-so willing werewolf at the bar, she realizes she might be in over her head. …

 

 

 

The Big Alpha In Town is three great stories that fulfill all reader’s shifter needs. All three stories are sexy with lots of heated passion and sizzling chemistry with just the right amount of suspense and humor added to spice things up.

 

In Bearing His Name - Jade and Ark have a major complication to overcome in their search for happily ever after which means the story is one hot bed of snark, electrifying chemistry and thrilling anticipation. As usual, Eve Langlais combines quick witted dialogue and sexy shifters to make every reader chuckle and pant after her wonderfully fun characters.

 

In Owned by the Lion - Kier has to pull out all the stops in order to win Ally’s heart which has the reader humming with anticipation with every page while easily falling for these strong, delightful characters especially since Milly Taiden knows how to bring her worlds and characters to vibrant life.

 

In No Need Fur Love - Owen and Mia find that red hot lust sometimes has unexpected consequences and that their happily ever after can only be accomplished if they divert a war. Lots of excitement and romance keeps reader glues to the pages of Kate Baxter’s fascinating world full of vivid characters that capture the imagination.

 

I just had to finish each of these stories in this Beast Sized Anthology, all three were captivating, thrilling and full of sexy shifters and the stories can be read one at a time during breaks or all at once for an enjoyable marathon read.  I can’t wait to read the next anthology by these wonderful authors.

 

 

 

The Big Alpha In Town is part of the Beast Sized Anthologies.

 

The next Beast Size Anthology - In the Mood for Love will be available soon.

New Release Review! Knock Down Dragon Out (Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska #1) Krystal Shannan!
Knock Down Dragon Out - Krystal Shannan

 

 

His black heart wants only vengeance... until she needs him...

Unable to save his family from murdering traitors, Col has a mission: to kill the dragons who murdered the royal house of Li'Vhram. When a cute, curvy woman needs rescuing, though, his senses go on high alert. And her soul is calling directly to him. That only happens...


...with soulmates.


But Col made a vow. He must avenge his family. He can't fall in love with her, no matter how much his inner dragon roars "mate" every five minutes.

An overwhelming need to get away from life—from grief—sent Naomi on a trek through Alaska. Even though she was expecting to photograph some unique wildlife, she was NOT expecting a dragon.

Those don't exist, right?

And a dragon who turns into a human? Even more unlikely. A hot dragon prince... yeah, she's totally hallucinating. And when he won't leave her side, and their chemistry is off the charts, suddenly, it's a whole-new-world of fantasy and excitement, until danger finds her.

Warning: This series contains a group of sexy warrior shifters, plenty of exciting action, and melt-your-phone-sexy scenes.

 

 

 

You know I always thought that Alaska would be this beautiful but very cold place and well I couldn’t be more excited to tell you that is may very well be cold but while I was visiting Mystery, Alaska, it was so very, very hot. In fact, I would go so far as to say, I thought my clothes were just gonna melt right off. There was this group of sexy and super hunky warrior shifters that caught my attention and well I just couldn’t seem to keep my eyes in my head. And when a dragon shifter named Col met his soulmate, Naomi, things really started cookin’. Col and Namoi are strong, captivating characters that had some seriously sizzling chemistry that I could practically feel from every page as they worked through their differences and the emotional turmoil that goes hand in hand with differing cultures and then there was the fact that Col has some baggage from back home interfering with wooing of Naomi which lead to him fighting some seriously messed up dragons that were determined to destroy Col which of course added some thrilling danger and excitement to the story and kept me glued to the pages of this fast paced and excellent beginning to this new series.

 

Once again, Krystal Shannan has created an exciting, sexy and fascinating new world full of vibrant wonderful characters that she brings to magical life with her well written words. I was very excited to hear about this new Soulmate Shifters Series and I couldn’t wait to read the first book and I have to say that I was in no way disappointed, so I can’t wait until I get to visit Mystery, Alaska again and get to know more of these sexy warriors.

 

 

 

 

Knock Down Dragon Out is the 1st book in the Soulmate Shifters in Mystery Alaska series.

 

 

Knock Down Dragon Out is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   GPlay   iBooks   Kobo
