When a wolf loves a leopard…

 

He’s her protector...


Caitlyn Fraser, a wereleopard who has always hated cruel werewolves, is the former prisoner turned mate of Dougal Sterling, Alpha of the Scottish pack. She’s courting jeopardy with her determination to attend the funeral of her brother’s father, since the Pack blames her for Alistair’s death. But still Dougal protects her from his wolves.

 

Her defender...


Short of allies, Dougal struggles to balance loyalty and attention between the Pack and Caitlyn. When the Pack’s stability crumbles, he’s faced with the return of his older brother, the rightful Alpha, who shirked his duty after their father’s death. However, Ewan’s challenge will be a battle to the death. Sheltering Caitlyn can only lose Dougal more friends, but he knows she’s the mate he’s longed for.

 

But survival takes two...


Menace lurks in every corner of the Highlands; Alistair and Ewan’s supporters and haters of shapeshifters abound. Caitlyn and Dougal must stick together, pushing back fiercely when they are attacked. Even if that puts them in mortal danger…

Chapter One

 

Caitlyn


The driveway leading up to the Scottish Pack’s massive headquarters stretched almost half a mile. I rested my chin on my arms and stared out of the Alpha’s window on the second story, overlooking the circular section of the drive. The Pack’s castle came complete with its very own dungeon, but at least they weren’t keeping me in there anymore. The memory of Alistair’s craggy face haunted my dreams each time I closed my eyes. His brutal fists hammered away against my face, ribs, and stomach, until I could no longer sleep.

 

Tension radiated through my shoulders, and I balled my hands into fists. No, Alistair—Colin’s father—was dead. Dougal had protected me, and my brother, from that monster when I didn’t have the strength to fight back.

 

Not that it mattered.

 

Two days had passed since my brother’s sudden departure. Now Colin was on his own with no one to watch his back. How could he leave without saying anything to me? I flexed my fists again, welcoming the anger as it bubbled up in my chest and replaced my sadness.

 

The heavy weight of a man’s hand descended on my back. I twisted around, my knuckles connecting with a solid jaw lined with dark, coarse stubble. A familiar jaw. Shite.

 

Dougal stumbled back half a step, but then he planted his feet like a tree with strong roots, not budging any further. Sharp power flared outward from him before he squelched it, stretching the muscles in his jaw. A frown tugged at his lips, and the corners of his eyes creased, either in pain or displeasure.

 

“Dougal! I’m so sorry.” The sudden movement of punching him had shot a searing ache through my battered ribs again. The pain stole my breath away, but I tried to force it down. How could I have been so careless? If he’d been anyone else in the Pack, I would’ve caused World War III.

 

“Dinnae fash. The punch bloody well hurt, though. I didn’t realize you were so strong.” Dougal’s frown melted away as he pulled me closer and pressed a kiss to my forehead. “Seems like you’re recovering your strength.” His gaze drifted past me to the long gravel driveway of the estate. “How are you doing, love?”


The emotions I’d been stomping down now bubbled to the surface again. “I cannae believe Colin left me. He left before I even regained consciousness. How could he?”


With anyone else, I wouldn’t show weakness, but I rested my forehead against Dougal’s chest, needing his touch and savoring his warmth. “I barely had time to talk with him, and when I did, it wasn’t a good time to ask how he was doing after the months he’d spent in that bloody research facility—or even to ask where he would go to heal…”

 

Tears welled in my eyes, but I held them back, refusing to cry. “I gave up so much—my job, my flat, my life—while trying to track him and bring him home. What if my sacrifices were all for naught?”

 

“Nae, they weren’t for naught, love.” Dougal kissed the top of my head. “I know you’re hurting. You have plenty of reasons to be, but the man who came back wasn’t the same one who left for the United States.” He lifted my chin, forcing me to see the sincerity in his clear blue eyes. “Whatever those scientists did affected him in ways neither of us will probably ever know. Waiting at the window won’t make him return any sooner.” He wrapped his arms around me and gently pulled me against his chest again. “Let me draw you a bath. Remember, I’m here if you need to talk.”

 

He was right, even if I didn’t want to admit it. Waiting for Colin’s return wouldn’t help, but what else could I do? “I know, but that doesn’t make this any easier for me. He’s my younger brother. I feel helpless that I cannae be there for him…again.” A heavy ache settled on my heart, and I pulled away hating the awkward emotions crushing me.


“Sorry.”

 

Dougal turned away from me and stared out of the window again. His jaw clenched and unclenched, as if he were trying hard to hold in his words. A lot was going on in his life too, and yet he was making a strong effort to support me through my problems. Things had become increasingly strained between him and his Pack since my arrival and Duncan and Alistair’s subsequent deaths. He didn’t talk about what he faced, and I didn’t want to pressure him.

 

After a few moments of silence, he released a sigh and turned back toward me. “You’ve done what you could for him, lass.” The ghost of a grin spread across his lips. “Do you still want the bath?”

 

I couldn’t help but nod. When I’d awakened from unconsciousness, Dougal had been there for me. We’d made love, and he brought me to new heights of pleasure. We also became intimately acquainted with the fancy Jacuzzi bathtub that could easily fit three or four humans…or one big, scary werewolf. The perks of being mated to the Alpha of the Scottish Pack.

 

“Aye, a bath sounds delish.” I wrapped my arms around his waist, bringing him back to me and drawing in his musky lupine scent. “Thanks for the talk. I wish I could’ve spoken with him before he took off. It would’ve made me feel better about him going.”


“Love, I talked with him.” He trailed his fingertips over my back in light, soothing strokes. “If I weren’t confident that he presented no danger to others, I wouldn’t have let him go. He would’ve stayed here whether he favored the idea or not.” The muscles in his lower back tensed beneath my touch, and his hand paused over my spine.

 

Something didn’t feel right. I lifted my gaze to meet Dougal’s. Was he not telling me something? We hadn’t known each other for long, but my sharp, feline instincts knew when someone spoke an untruth. He wasn’t outright lying, but he was holding something back. What could it be?

 

I bit my lower lip, regretting it as my teeth sank into one of the nearly healed spots where Alistair had punched me in the face. Instead of confronting Dougal, I turned my attention toward the window. “You would tell me if he was dangerous to himself, wouldn’t you?”

 

“Aye, I would.” His tone of voice wasn’t as convincing as I’d wanted. He leaned away, putting me at arm’s length. “Enough of that, I suppose. I’ll draw the bath for you.”


Without another word, he strode to the en-suite bathroom. His hands clenched and unclenched at his sides all the way. The door snapped shut behind him, and he started the water running a few moments later.

 

Nausea churned inside me, and I held my stomach. Should I believe Dougal? Something about his words didn’t feel right. The Jacuzzi tub would take a few minutes to fill, and I needed to get out of this bloody bedroom and away from him. The strain of standing there and trying to keep myself calm was becoming too much.

 

My stomach growled, and I glanced up at the round wrought-iron clock on the wall. It was almost one o’clock in the afternoon.

 

Many of the werewolves didn’t like that their Alpha was mating with a wereleopard, so I usually skipped the mealtime rushes to keep my distance. It wasn’t easy, because several of the wolves lived here in this honest-to-God castle full time.

Apparently, that was how many Packs operated. The thought boggled my mind. How did they stand to be around one another all the time? How would I survive being the sole feline in this house full of wolves?

 

Every urge for solitude within me roared to run as fast and as far away from this place as I could. Too much held me here, though. Besides, if Colin returned from his trip, I wanted to be around to greet him. Maybe throttle him, too, but it’d be a greeting nonetheless…

 

I slid my leather jacket on over the white tank top, not wanting to reveal too much bruised skin, then headed for the kitchen to grab leftovers. Dougal had tried to convince me to eat with him and everyone else. He wanted me to get to know the wolves and socialize. Getting friendly with the Pack might be a nice idea, but I couldn’t do it. Not with how his Pack watched me when they thought I wasn’t looking. Even Dougal’s second-in-command wasn’t a fan of mine. The sentiment was mutual. For as long as I could remember, I’d hated werewolves. One of my main reasons would soon rest six feet underground. Their hatred of me for Alistair’s death just added to my reluctance to get friendly with them.


Shaking away those thoughts, I turned the corner to enter the kitchen. If my sharp feline reflexes hadn’t kicked in, I would’ve run straight into a towering werewolf. I leapt back at the last minute to prevent Kerr from spilling his plate of food. The already agonizing ache in my side intensified from moving so fast, but I kept my arms at my sides and my face neutral.

 

“Afternoon, lass. Ye look like yer recoverin’ well.” Kerr nodded, looking curiously at me.

 

“Thanks, Kerr. I’m trying.” I flashed him an uncomfortable smile, then edged past the broad, barrel-chested man into the kitchen. Maybe he wasn’t as bad as the others, but I couldn’t shake the overwhelming feeling that he disagreed with Dougal’s decision to mate with me.

 

Kerr placed a heavy hand on my shoulder. My spine stiffened, and I gripped the sleeves of my jacket to keep from swinging on him too. “Keep tryin’, then.” His deep voice rumbled through the kitchen. I glanced pointedly at his hand, but he didn’t move it.


“Sooner or later ye need to overcome yer fear, hatred, or whatever it is ye feel toward my kind. If ye cannae, ye won’t last long here, lass.” With that, he walked down the corridor toward the massive grand hall where the wolves held their meetings and ate.

 

My shoulders slumped. Suddenly, I didn’t feel so hungry, but my leopard still needed to eat. We couldn’t skip any more meals. It hindered our healing process and weakened us too much. Right now, I couldn’t afford weakness, not while I was amongst a pack of wolves.

 

If only I weren’t continually looking over my shoulder with the Pack, but such was life for now.

 

Shite. I didn’t have much time before Dougal noticed I’d left the bedroom.

The leftovers were neatly arranged on the clean countertop. There wasn’t much food left, but I grabbed a bag of crisps and one of the last club sandwiches. A female wolf—Mairi, I think—ran a catering company, so she always brought by food to keep the Pack well fed. She was one of the nicer wolves.

 

Instead of following Kerr toward the dining room, where I would probably find the rowdy werewolves laughing and talking, I remained in the kitchen. I sat on the counter farthest away from the entrance, hidden from anyone who might walk past.

 

As I finished my sandwich, footsteps in the hall became louder as someone approached the kitchen. The sound of soft sniffing tensed every muscle in my body, then Dougal stepped into the room. His gaze slid over me, and desire darkened his eyes.

 

“Your bath is ready. If I’d known you were hungry, I would’ve brought something earlier when I ate.”


I shrugged a shoulder. “It’s all right. I’m eating now.”

 

“Aye, so you are.” He looked down the hallway as if checking to make sure no one else was near. When he turned back, he wore a frown that creased the corners of his lips and eyes. “You shouldn’t be in here all alone, love. Things within the Pack are tense right now. Let’s go back to the bedroom.”

 

I tilted my chin up, not in the mood to be bossed around again. “I’m not alone. You’re here.” I opened the bag of crisps and munched on one.

His nostrils flared, and he crossed his arms over his broad chest. The move might’ve been scary as hell if it wasn’t him doing it. “That’s not the point. Come on.”

 

Bloody hell.

 

First, I’d been his prisoner in the cage, and now I’d become a prisoner in his bedroom. Not in a fun way, either. Why was this happening?

 

I clenched my fists, crushing a few of my crisps as tears burned in my eyes, but I refused to let them show. The flood of emotions I’d experienced over the past week was becoming too much to all push down at once. As soon as I dealt with certain fears or emotions, others popped up to take their place, like some horrible version of whack-a-mole.

 

Life just wasn’t fair. All I’d wanted to do was return to Scotland and be here for my brother. In that time, I’d been reintroduced to a childhood nightmare, imprisoned in a dungeon, and now I was the prisoner/mate of a werewolf Alpha. When would the roller coaster end?

 

Dougal crossed the space between us in a few long strides. He pulled me from the counter into his arms.

 

A feline hiss ripped from my throat, sounding every bit as feral as I felt. Once again, anger rescued me from my moodiness. “Set me down this minute!”

Release Day Review! Bearly Hanging On (Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska #3) Krystal Shannan!

 

 

Today is a busy day for new releases and I am sharing another one with you - Bearly Hanging On - the 3rd book in the Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series by Krystal Shannan! Enjoy and don't forget to add the book to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

The best type of romance is the one that’s forbidden.

 

Owen’s become an outcast for losing his Tribe… and that label is enough to prevent him from claiming his mate under pain of death. Tara won’t understand that he’s a bear, anyway. She’ll be scared. She’ll run away. So he keeps his distance...for now...

 

But Tara’s being hunted by a group of guys who act more like a pack-- because they are. Wolf shifters are nothing to joke about, and once they attack Owen can’t stay away any longer.

 

Owen is large. Untamed. And damn, he’s good in bed. The connection they have is deep and undeniable, the lust they have for each other something primal.


Yet the wolves are still lurking-- they’re out for revenge, and they won’t stop until they have Tara. If Owen wants Tara as his mate, he’ll have to fight to the death to keep her.

 

A sexy adventure that’s got thrills (and wild romps!) around every corner, Bearly Hanging On is the third book in the scintillating Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series. If you like paranormal romance featuring protective bear shifters who love pleasuring and defending their women, then what are you waiting for?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

He’s an outcast which will keep him from claiming his mate but it won’t stop him from protecting Tara when she becomes the target of a pack of wolf shifters.

 

This energetic shifter romance grips readers by the heart and has them bouncing in their seat with excitement. Owen and Tara are strong, vibrant characters that stand out and readers can’t help but become caught up in their story. A forbidden mating adds to the thrill of this romance as Owen was labeled outcast in his realm and the Alpha Dragon is enforcing the rules here. This also adds lots of emotional distress to the turmoil that Tara is facing in regards to her family and the fear she is facing due to the threat, so readers’ hearts can’t help but be captivated by this couple as their attraction dares them to break the rules.

 

Thrills and excitement keeps readers on the edge of their seat throughout this story as Owen tries to protect Tara from his enemies all while trying to avoid her. The story is further enhanced with surprising twists, tense altercations and confrontations, and an explosive battle to the death. The story has one moving event after the other and I couldn’t put this story down in fear of missing something and the more I visit Mystery, Alaska and these fascinating soulmate shifters, the more of them I want.

Release Day Review Doubletake! Summoned To the Thirteenth Grave (Charley Davidson #13) Darynda Jones!

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today is the release day for Summoned To the Thriteenth Grave - the final book in the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones, so I thought I would share purchase links & repost my review! Enjoy!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series! 

 

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity—which is exactly the amount of time it takes to make a person stark, raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer. 

 

She’s missed her daughter. She’s missed Reyes. She’s missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. Now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine for a broken heart? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

OMG! What an explosive and stunning conclusion to the Charley Davidson world! While readers may be disappointed that the series is ending, there is no way for readers to be disappointed in this climatic ending that is such an unexpected outcome! Readers also can’t help but agree that ending the series with the thirteenth book is quite appropriate as the number thirteen has such notoriety to it. The strong, bold characters of this series have continuously wowed readers with fun, sass, and thrills throughout this excellent series and they fulfill their reputation in the final book as they all come together to save the world.

 

The relationship between Reyes and Charley has always been unique and passionate and the conclusion of this book keeps that tradition going which invokes numerous emotions from readers but they have to admit that it is quite fitting. As always, the story is full of adrenaline pumping suspense, excitement and sass that readers have come to love although this book may actually surpass the overall explosive and thrilling feel of the previous stories. Maybe that’s because the series is ending or maybe it’s because of the whole world ending danger that flows throughout this fast paced story. While readers may be sorry to see Charley go, they can’t wait to find out what the author has in store for readers next.

Release Day Reviews X 2! Poppy & Primrose (Hidden Realms of Silver Lake #1 &2) Vella Day!

 

 

Today, is the release day for the 1st two books in Vella Day's Hidden Realms of Silver Lake: Four Sisters of Fate series and I am going to share a spotlight & my reviews for both! Enjoy and don't forget to add to the books to your shelves!

ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

Poppy has one goal--not to use her goddess magic for two weeks. How hard can it be?

 

Poppy Faiten, one of the four goddesses of Fate, was stoked to leave town and pretend to be a human for two weeks. The lack of responsibility thrilled her--until Slade LaMont walked into the diner where she was working. Holy moly. Waves of lust and yearning swamped her. But how could that be? A goddess of Fate was supposed to help other mates stay together, not have one herself. But here he was, so thank you, Fate. This dragon shifter was out of this world hot--and she was determined to land him.

 

Slade took one look at Poppy and fell into instant lust. It didn't matter his dragon was convinced she was the one for him. He didn't believe in mates. Besides, he didn't have time for one. He had a hotel to build--a hotel that might make Poppy walk away.

One shy goddess. One very hot human ski instructor. What will it take to bring these two mates together?

 

Primrose Faiten couldn't believe it. Here she was one of the goddesses of Fate, convinced she'd spend eternity alone, and guess what? She meets her dream man. The problem is this gorgeous mortal is human, and he'll never accept her once he finds out her secret identity.

 

As luck would have it, a snowstorm strands these two skiers in a warm cozy cabin. Jackpot! Primrose might be the shy one in the family, but when presented with this once in a lifetime opportunity, no way will she squander it.

 

Rafe Tremont might be highly attracted to the sexy, yet naïve woman, but he can never let his heart rule--not until he deals with some unfinished business that might keep him from Primrose forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Goddesses of Fate are supposed to help other mates stay together, not have a mate of her own but waves of lust and yearning swamp Poppy Fiaten when Slade LaMont walked into the diner where she was working.

 

Poppy and Slade are two strong, vivid characters that easily draw readers into their story with a delightful and sizzling romance. The plot is fast paced and energetic which keeps readers turning the pages while the relationship between Poppy and Slade progress with a few hiccups along the way and a bit of thrills.

The story and the Sisters of Fate are fascinating and delightful, so while, the story is on the short side, it is a very charming read that I quite enjoyed.

 

 


 

Primrose has met her dream man but there is one problem…he’s human and he’ll never accept her if he finds out her secret identity.

 

The second story is fast paced and also, on the short side, but it is well worth the read and has a bit of suspense as Primrose discovers a way to help Rafe with his unfinished business and there is a thrills to be found as Primrose learns to ski and a snowstorm strands the two in a cozy cabin (oooh, la, la). Primrose and Rafe both are strong, captivating characters that readers can easily identify with and their romance is sweet and on the fun side with sizzling chemistry in this charming and fascinating paranormal world.

Not only do I love to read, write, and dream, I'm an extrovert. I enjoy being around people and am always trying to understand what makes them tick. My books must have a happily ever after, and I need characters I can relate to. My men are wonderful, dynamic, smart, strong, and the best lovers in the world (of course).

 

I love to sleep in late and write into the wee hours. I also love FB, so you'll find me on there, too!

 

I believe I am the luckiest woman. I do what I love and I have a wonderful, supportive husband, who happens to be hot!

 

Fun facts about me


(1) I'm a math nerd who loves spreadsheets. Give me numbers and I'll find a pattern.


(2) My husband and I recently moved to Costa Rica where we are trying to learn Spanish while we enjoy the beautiful beaches!!


(3) I love photos, so check me out on Instagram as @dayvella.

 

I love hearing from readers either on FB or via email (hint, hint).

ABOUT THE BOOK

 


Landon’s been searching for redemption, but he never expected to find Mercy.

Tragedy drove Landon Welch to enlist in the Army with no plans of returning home. After serving seven years as a combat medic, he's teetering on the edge of burnout when ordered to take leave and confront his demons.

 

Preschool director Mercedes Foster has dedicated her life to brightening the futures of low-income children. She’s intelligent, driven, and avoiding distractions, especially one sexy soldier with questionable motives. But when Mercy’s brother gets mixed up in trouble that could endanger her cause and risk her life, Landon might be just the complication she needs to survive.

EXCERPT

 

 

“Come in.”


I wasn’t about to step foot in his personal space, but I did open the door to relay his mom’s message only to get an eyeful of his gloriously naked back. Landon’s shoulders were wide and muscular, tapering to a narrow waist. He wasn’t bodybuilder big, but the corded back muscle and well-defined biceps spoke of a practical strength. Landon’s muscles had come from hard work and training. Not only was his body well-built and beautiful, but it was also marked up with a few scars and some breathtaking ink. Wings were tattooed on the backs of his arms and he had some sort of medical insignia on his back. A hardhat was perched on the top of the insignia, with the American flag waving behind it.


Back to the door, he was searching through his closet.

“Almost ready, Mom. Just need to grab a shirt.”


I didn’t correct him, didn’t say a damn thing, as I continued to stare, memorizing every muscle, every line of his ink. His body was beautiful in the way I imagined a gun would be: deadly, powerful, and sleek. I was no virgin, but the few men I’d been with hadn’t been built like Landon, and I couldn’t help but wonder what it would feel like to be wrapped in those arms.


“Mercy?”


He’d removed a shirt from its hanger and was holding it as he glanced over his shoulder, breaking me out of my lust-induced trance. My gaze darted up to his face. He was watching me.


“S-sorry to interrupt,” I stammered, sounding like a complete idiot. “Your mom wanted me to let you know that dinner’s ready.”


He spun around to face me, giving me a full view of his chiseled chest covered in even more ink, lined abs, and an incredible V that led down to the waistband of his low-riding jeans. I was trying not to stare, but I couldn’t help myself. Landon’s body was built for sex. He finally broke the trance I was in by pulling his shirt over his arms and working the buttons. Grateful for the cotton now covering his nakedness, I sought out his face again.


“See something you like?” he asked, the left corner of his lips sliding up in a panty-dropping smirk.


Embarrassed, and refusing to let him know I found him attractive, I scanned his room searching for something I could use to form a reply. My gaze stopped on the awards hanging above his bookshelf. “Yes. I had no idea you were good at science and math. Those awards are pretty impressive. Good job.”


Oh, God, kill me now.
