Early Review! Gifted (The Dark Forgotten #4.5) Sharon Ashwood!

 

Who says the holiday season is just for humans?

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.


No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays.

 


No matter who – or what – you are, this Dark Forgotten holiday special is heartwarming and thrilling! As the strong, vivid characters prepare for the holidays while dealing with a demonic threat. Lots of holiday cheer, and sweet romance entertains readers while spine chilling suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seat. The idea of something good coming out something demonic inspires readers as a variety of characters discover holiday miracles make everything worthwhile even having to banish a sparkly demonic threat and battling holiday crowds. Readers can’t help but enjoy this fresh perspective of fanged and furry, magical and innocent characters take on the holidays while also getting to catch up on the lives of all the Dark Forgotten characters.

Rowan & Ash Artistry is home to my artistic pursuits. The name comes from Celtic and Norse folklore. Rowan has protective powers and grants true vision. Ash is the mighty tree that links the worlds. Together they invoke strength, discernment, and love of harmony and balance.

 

I live in the Pacific Northwest in a house crammed with books, musical instruments, and half-finished sewing projects. I have an honor’s degree in English literature but work as a resource manager (aka fun with spreadsheets). I am owned by the Demon Lord of Kitty Badness, who is happy to express his critical opinion with judiciously applied hairballs.

 

As Sharon Ashwood, I’ve written several urban fantasy romance and paranormal romance series. I won the 2011 RITA® award for paranormal romance (Unchained) and was nominated again for Possessed by a Wolf in 2016 and Enchanted Warrior in 2017. In addition, I won Wisconsin’s 2011 Write Touch Readers’ Award Contest (Unchained) and the 2010 Desert Rose Golden Quill Contest (Ravenous).

 

Emma Jane Holloway pursues fantasy, history, and steampunk adventures. The Baskerville Affair is just the beginning.

Blurb:

 

Saidie Walker grew up a nice, normal girl—but not everything is as it seems. Even the Walker family has secrets locked away.

 

Saidie’s grandmother told them stories from their family history about being able to raise the dead. But Saidie believed they were only scary stories meant to frighten naughty children, and necromancers were nothing more than the stuff of nightmares and make-believe.

 

Until she met Alexandria Blackburne Reed and her powers woke up with a vengeance. Now she’s shipped off to New Orleans to be tutored, but finds herself surrounded by horrors instead.

 

One bright spot fills her dismal days—Aleric, the guy who’s been assigned as her test subject. He drives her nuts, makes her so mad she's ready to hit something, but the thought of causing him more pain than he's already suffered at Madame's hands is more than she can bear.

 

Her emerging feelings for him both confuse and excite her. She may have found the one thing she's always wanted, but will it survive amidst all the danger beginning to unfold?

 

Aleric's past is interwoven with the friends she left back home, and she'll do what she must to protect them all, even if that means dying. Her only hope is to make it home to West Virginia—to her best friend.

 

It's up to Alexandria to find a way to help Saidie before she loses her to the madness of her necromancy, while dealing with her own pain and heartache.

Can they survive the horrors about to rain down upon them all?

So who am I?

 

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

 

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

 

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

A hot deputy, a woman in hiding, and a murder that changes it all. True love and the truth are often at odds in Mary Billiter’s latest installment in her resort romance series.

 

The Feds changed her name, occupation, and location, but Cupid and crime still found her. Both Witness Protection and her position as a hotel conference services manager require Rebel Roberts to maintain a low profile. But when she finds herself at the center of high crime and high romance at the high-rise Point Resort in Long Beach, even the best-laid plans are subject to change.

 

Former college baseball pitcher Ryan McHenry plans on becoming a deputy sheriff like his late uncle. But when Rebel literally stumbles on a dead body by her hotel, helping her change the narrative may throw a curve in his career plans.

Can Rebel and Ryan find true love and happiness with so many lies between them?

EXCERPT


“Are you always so difficult?” Special Agent Jude Fallon seemed to savor a good rhetorical question.

 

When I was told that my FBI handler was named Jude, I thought I’d be working with someone who looked like Jude Law. No luck. Jude was shaped like an egg with legs. Her best assets were her slender legs that seemed to get lost beneath her wide frame, short neck, and full face. Worse, Jude Fallon made Judge Judy seem like a real softy.

 

“For someone who was granted immunity despite the fact that you destroyed evidence and went directly against orders from the judge to preserve the personal email accounts”—her mousy brown hair slowly swayed from side to side—“I’d think you’d be more appreciative.”

 

“I am.” My voice rose but so did my composure. “Jude, I am extremely appreciative. But,” I paused, knowing that in respect to this subject, I walked on holy ground, “I was granted immunity in exchange for my testimony. So it’s not like I walked away scot-free. I still have to testify.”


When she didn’t rebuke me or roll her eyes, I continued. “I just don’t understand why I have to leave Napa. I did everything you wanted me to do. I worked in the hotel as a wine educator in a dark, damp cave.”

 

“Yes, well, the property is drawing too much attention to itself.” Her arms crossed over her dull gray blazer that seemed like the uniform standard for the FBI.

 

“That’s it? That’s all you’ll give me.” I was willing to beg for more info. “Jude, the Point’s a five-diamond resort—that alone draws attention. If you didn’t want me discovered, you should have had me work at some Travelodge along the highway.”

 

“That’s still an option.” When Jude exhaled, her nostrils flared, which wasn’t a very good look for her. “But I don’t trust you being so close to a truck stop.”

 

It felt like the air was knocked from my lungs. Low blow.

 

“That’s not fair.” My eyes stung, but I refused to let her see me crack. “What happened in Wyoming was different.”

 

“You’re right. In Wyoming, you just broke about a half-dozen federal and state laws.”

 

“That was never my intention,” I said, but it didn’t matter how many times I pleaded my case to Jude, she’d only see me as a rule breaker. Or worse, a criminal.

 

Still, my fate was in her mannish hands so the faster her tirade ended, the sooner I’d discover where I was being sent.

 

“So, where am I headed now?” My voice sounded as deflated as I felt. Until the Wyoming case went to trial, I’d forever be hopscotching from one Point resort to another, always with the intent of staying under the radar. Jude figured the best place to hide me was out in the open. People never saw what was right in front of them. And no one in Wyoming would ever think to look for me at a five-diamond resort.

“You have two choices—New York or Long Beach.”


I didn’t remember a Point resort in Long Beach, but I only googled their flagship properties. And I knew from online chat groups that the New York City Point Resort did not treat their employees well. Long Beach had to be far less crowded than New York City. Plus, unless it was false advertising, it had a beach. There weren’t any beaches in Wyoming. Score.

 

“Long Beach.” I smiled.

 

“Listen, Roberts, you draw any attention to yourself, you’re going to Kansas.”

I didn’t remember any Point resorts in the Midwest. “What’s there for me in Kansas?”

 

“Leavenworth.”

 

“But that’s a men’s prison,” I said.

“No, it’s a men’s penitentiary and you’ll be mighty popular there,” she said without a hint of a smile.

 

“So, the West Coast, then.” I tried to bring the conversation to something happy like the sun, a sandy beach, and not seeing Jude. A break from my egg-shaped handler would be welcome.

Fate’s Fools 
by Ophelia Bell 
(Fate’s Fools, #1) 
Publication date: November 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

 


Synopsis:

 

How do you find a soulmate – without a soul?
Deva Rainsong was meant to be nothing more than a vessel to house the enemy’s soul. Bred in a lab with a link to the enemy’s bloodline, she is a mix of all four higher races and the only creature of her kind. No one, not even her family, knows how she works, or what she is truly capable of. And now, with the death of the enemy in the last war, Deva has lost her purpose. Despite the deep connection she forms with five men along her journey, love without a soul can only be an empty affair. Deva refuses to bind any man to that meaningless existence.

 

Unclaimed, empty, and soulless, Deva has been left with nothing but a deep, cold longing for a love that Fate will never offer. But, when Fate hounds begin hunting members of the bloodline, it becomes Deva’s personal quest to find out how to stop them. With her special link, and her five suitors in tow, she is in a singularly unique position. Together, the band of six will embark on a mission to uncover the secrets of bloodline souls, love, rogue Fate hounds, and the true extent of Deva’s powers…

 

Warning: this story is a fast-burn HOT and steamy reverse-harem odyssey, with some M/M content, not meant for the faint of heart (or libido)… #whychoose!

EXCERPTS:

 

Choose between the dirtier excerpt & the less dirty excerpt…
or maybe you want to read both – be my guest!

 

 

Dirty excerpt:

 

A hot gust of dragon breath billowed over me and when I regained my senses I looked up into a scaled snout and golden eyes the size of dinner plates with bottomless black slits for pupils. More sounds of breaking furniture surrounded me as the dragon situated himself and tilted his head. His pupils widened to almost full black orbs as his snout nudged my bare thigh and I became acutely aware of my relative lack of clothing.

 

“Can you get up?” Keagan grunted beneath me.


I moved my foot to try to gain purchase, but sank into a pillow and slipped beyond, getting caught inside whatever broken piece of furniture we’d landed on.

Rohan’s head tilted the other way and his snout nudged higher up my thigh, inhaling deeply. A low, seismic rumble filled the room as he caged my already trapped leg with one big claw and darted out his forked tongue. I glanced around but we were boxed in by smashed furniture, and Rohan’s big forelegs blocked any escape.

 

“I think we’re stuck,” I said, and gasped when Rohan’s tongue flicked close to my core.

 

Keagan’s fingers squeezed my waist. “Then we’d better make the most of it,” he rumbled. “Trust me, Deva. This isn’t the first time I’ve dealt with him in this state.

He’s kind of an irresponsible jackass, but I love him anyway.”


“Does he usually destroy the house?”

 

Keagan’s chest shook with a low laugh against my back. “This is a first. The Maestro’s going to be livid, but we’ll deal with him later. First things first.” His hands slipped down to my hips and grazed the naked skin beneath the hem of Rohan’s shirt. “I’m going to take this off you.


Naked . . . ah . . . female flesh is better than clothed, yeah?
At least I’m hoping he’s as enthralled with your tits uncovered as he was when you were dressed.”

 

“He was enthralled?” I managed to squeak out just as a big claw hooked the collar of the shirt and swiped down, preempting Keagan’s undressing of me by slicing the shirt straight down the center. An interested rumble echoed through the room as Rohan raised his snout and nudged between my breasts, inhaling softly.

 

Keagan snorted. “Case in point. You do have fantastic breasts.”

 

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

 


Less dirty excerpt (First chapter opening):


The ursa claim that when they go on their pilgrimage as young adults, they do this thing they call “soul searching.” I’ve always wondered what this meant. Are their souls like vessels that need to be emptied out like old luggage and filtered through to find clues to their true path in life? Or are they missing their souls and the pilgrimage is how they find them?

 

I’ve never asked anyone else this question before because I kind of already know the answer. Their soul searching was a journey to understand the souls they already possessed.


I’d have liked to think that my own pilgrimage was the same thing, except I was probably fooling myself.

 

First of all, I’m not really on a pilgrimage at all. I ran away from home and my family is probably looking for me.

 

And second, I don’t have a soul, which is a double-edged sword. It means I’m nearly impossible for my family to find, but it also means I am missing the one thing that could probably tell me where I belong in the world, and I’m fairly certain my own quest isn’t going to lead me to it.

 

Ever since I ran, I’ve been going through the motions of this so-called “soul search,” but haven’t really learned a whole lot about myself that I didn’t already know. I’m an infinitely adaptable creature and a quick study, yet the powers I was born with are still wimpy as fuck. Three weeks into a self-imposed exile from the life I knew, all I’d really learned were things related to the human world to which I’d fled.

 

Humanity was both amazingly resilient and heart-breakingly fragile at the same time. I finally understood why the higher races were so drawn to them. Why the dragons used to collect human mates and hoard them like treasure.

 

That particular instinct wasn’t exactly dormant in me.


Thanks to my somewhat unorthodox origins, I was magically linked to a special segment of humanity that was infused with divine blood. And thanks to that blood, there was something distinctly magical hurting some of the humans of the bloodline.

 

My deepest instincts urged me to protect them. Whether it was my dragon nature at work, or a trait of one of the other four races that ran in my blood, I kind of wanted to take half the bloodline home with me just to keep them safe. That would have solved a lot of issues, but it wasn’t exactly feasible to show up in the Dragon Glade or one of the other three sacred homes of the four higher races with a whole pile of humans in tow.

 

Even if I could go home. One of the few things I’d learned about myself was that I was stubborn as hell. I was part human, so that resilience and tenacity was there, but I was also immortal, so not so fragile, at least not on the outside.


I couldn’t leave the human world until I’d figured out what was hurting the people I was linked to and why, even if it meant keeping watch over the one thing they possessed that I didn’t: their souls.

 

The irony was not lost on me.

EXCERPT 2:


Basketball season was starting and, after my first practice, I was selected to start on our team. I loved the attention. I was the only kid on the team who wanted his parents to show up for the games. The reason was simple: my mom was beautiful and young, and my dad was tough-looking and muscular and looked like a kid. I wanted to show them off.


The season was great, and I was one of the best players in the league. The kids at school would talk to me about the games and about how good I was; it felt amazing to have people counting on me each game. The girls noticed me even though I was barely ten years old but I was very shy when it came to the opposite sex.


Katrina was her name—my first crush. She had beautiful, long, straight blonde hair and a killer smile. In class, I would stare at her out of the corner of my eye. Once I noticed her, I promised myself that I would talk with her someday. I just had to work up the courage. Guess again! Third grade and fourth grade passed and still not a single word!


Was it possible that the girl of my dreams would get away?


I couldn’t believe that two years had gone by, and I still hadn’t even spoken to Katrina.


How was it that my basketball team won the championship two years in a row, I started as the pitcher for the Little League’s National League Rockies, got straight A’s in school, and had tons of friends, but still could not talk to a girl? Hard to believe that even with so much success, I still couldn’t do it. I will work the courage up one day, I thought. After all, I was only eleven.

 



Why do you write?

 

Writing to me allows me to represent my inner most thoughts when I struggle to explain them in person. Some thoughts can’t be explained as Clearly without writing down exactly how you feel. It’s more therapeutic than anything. Writing allows me to write down how I am feeling at the exact moment and hopefully people can relate to it.

 

 

What inspired you to write?

 

Depression

 

 

What is your favorite book of all time?

 

I think having a favorite book all depends on your mood/feelings, and I’m a rollercoaster.

 

 

What is something your readers would be surprised to know about you?

 

I always wanted to be an actor but I have stage fright.

 

 

What did you want to be when you grew up?

 

So many things… and still do. Some days I want to be a world famous writer. Other days a country singer, famous actor, athlete, really depends what mood I’m in that day.

 

 

What’s the best piece of advice you were ever given?

 

One day at a time

 

 

What advice would you give today’s youth?

 

Take your time to become who you are. It’s not a race, just enjoy the ride, your time will come.

 

Where is your favorite place to write?

 

In the library, by a window

 

 

What was your writing process?

 

Put my fingers on the keyboard and let my mind be free.

 

 

What have you found most surprising about the publishing process?

 

Honestly? It can be a pain in the ass! The work’s never done and the writing is only the beginning.

 

 

Which character in your book was most challenging to write about?

 

My father… I tried to capture how he felt but not sure how good of a job I did.

 

 

What is your favorite scene in The Crossroads of Logan Michaels?

 

My favorite scene is in chapter 9 I believe. When Logan wakes up miserably hung over and finds the note his mother wrote him. It brings me to tears almost every time.

 

 

What have you learned about yourself through writing this novel?

 

I’m a complicated yet simple man.

 

 

What is next for you?
Are you working on another book?

 

Yes. The second volume of The Crossroads of Logan Michaels, where we see Logan work his way through the recovery process and rebuilding a life.

 

 

How would you like to be remembered?

 

Alive and when I truly smiled, if you ever captured that moment…

ABOUT JAMES M. ROBERTS


James M. Roberts wanted to prove that you don't need to be a college scholar or a perfect writer to put your heart on paper even when it is hurting the most. James's experiences have inspired him to tell his story in order to reach young readers suffering from insecurity, sadness, and addiction. Not only did James drop out of high school, but he also stumbled into deep depression early in his adolescent life. Although he had been an all-star athlete, he was far from happy. He ended up making regrettable choices in order to feel a sense of belonging and worth, especially following his parents' separation. Through it all, James knew that one day he was going to share his "misery" with the world. He struggled through life's lessons and finally put himself through college to earn a business degree and currently has a successful career in sales. James finished his first rough draft at twenty-five while in college. Five years later he erased all 200,000 words and started from scratch. He currently resides in Woburn, Massachusetts, where he continues to thrive and develop his writing.

SYNOPSIS:

 

Discover Cecy Robson’s sensational Weird Girls series—or return to where the magic first began—with this eBook original prequel novella about four sisters coming to grips with their unique supernatural powers.

 

Celia Wird shouldn’t possess the ability to transform into a tigress. Her three sisters should never be able to burst into flames, heal wounds, or transform common objects into deadly weapons. And yet they do.

 

Before they were born, the Wird Sisters were cursed by a spell that was intended to destroy them, not endow them with extraordinary powers. The sisters’ magic is untamed and explosive at best, and time is running out for them to take command.

 

Vampires have targeted Celia’s sweet, tragically human ex-boyfriend Danny. The sisters rush to his aid, but in order to take down the vamps, first they must face their dark past and break a spell that’s screwing up their powers. Except this curse wasn’t meant to be broken . . . and the witch who cast it isn’t done toying with them yet.

 

 


 

 

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT

 

Danny shook his head. “No. He mistook them for Mafia, but I think at best they’re vamps with Mafia ties. There’s this female among them that seems fixated on my father. I think she’s been drinking from him. It’s odd. She’s odd. The whole thing is . . . odd.”

 

Shayna grimaced. “You mean aside from her drinking blood?”

 

Danny tried to stand. “Yeah. I don’t know if vampires can be mentally ill. From what I’ve researched so far, they’re immune to diseases. But nothing I’ve read mentions anything about being immune to insanity.”

 

I steadied him with my hand. “Why have you been reading up on vamps? I mean, I know since you’ve learned about us, you’ve been curious, but . . . I’m not a vampire.”

 

He sighed, watching me with his dark sad eyes. “Believe it or not, I thought I could help you. You and your sisters have something special.”

 

“Ah, no, we don’t.” Taran glared his way. “At best we’re atom bombs ready to detonate.” As if to make a point, a puff of blue and white smoke from her fire popped and sizzled above her head.

 

Danny returned the glasses to his face. “I don’t agree. There’re not a lot of books available here in the U.S. about the supernatural―the real kind, I mean―weres, witches, vamps, those types of beings. But I’ve purchased a few ancient volumes from old libraries in Europe, where most legends stem from actual truths. I haven’t been able to find much about what you are or what you could be. In fact, I’m positive you’re different from any race of humans or preternaturals on earth.”

 

“Yay for us,” Taran muttered.

 

Danny offered a sympathetic smile. “One thing I have learned a great deal about are curses and magic in general.” His gaze skipped to each one of us. “I think you’re all in a bind.”

 

“No shit,” Taran snapped. “I’m surprised we haven’t killed each other.”

 

Danny held out a hand. “No, that’s not what I mean. I think you’ve been bound―in the magical sense. Sort of like a noose or tie that holds your powers back, and therefore your control.” He focused on me. “Celia, I think you can manage your powers best because your tigress gives you added strength. Picture a pit bull on a leash. You’re going to pull harder against it than another, smaller breed, making it harder to hold you back.”

 

Shayna inched forward. “Um, Danny, maybe you should watch the dog references. I understand what you’re trying to say, but Taran’s a little touchier.” She motioned to Taran with a jerk of her head. “Know what I mean, little guy?”

 

Taran narrowed her eyes, proving Shayna’s point.

 

Danny’s mouth popped open. “I’m sorry. I wasn’t trying to insult you, ladies.”

 

I barely heard his apologies, my ears homing in on the rumble of motors. Two cars entered the dead-end street leading to the field and to us. The roar of their engines didn’t sound familiar or appropriate for the area. We were in blue-collar territory and these vehicles were definitely not your standard beaters. And instead of slowing down when they entered the narrow street, they sped faster, like cheetahs who’d found a herd of wounded gazelles.

 

My tigress growled a warning. Taran’s blue eyes blanched to white, her magic sensing another’s approach.

 

Danny jerked around upon seeing the first car barrel up the small incline. “It’s the vampires. Run!”

5 Reasons to Love a Shifter
by Lori Titus

 

 

5.  Your mate is naturally protective and instinctually senses when something is wrong.


4. You quickly become adapted to a “changing” personality.


3.  No matter what happens, you know that your mate had super speed and strength.


2. Shifters are notoriously good lovers.


1. Shifters bond and mate with the one they love for life.

 

 

 

 

Are You Dating A Wahya?
by Kristal Hollis

 

 

If you have ever looked at your man and thought, "There’s something different about this guy that I can’t quite figure out," then he might be a Wahya. Here’s how to know for sure.


1. If your man seems to ignore you during meals, salivates at a sporting event when the scent of hamburgers and hot dogs fills the air or glares when you try to steal a French fry, he might be a Wahya. They love to eat and can be quite stingy with food. However, if a Wahya willing shares his food, it’s a good sign he is bonding with you.

 

2. If your man is especially frisky during a full moon and wants to have a howling contest, he might be a Wahya. You may also notice that in his home, clothing is optional.


3. If during a disagreement, your man growls soft, low, and menacing, then he might be a Wahya. You may also hear this sound when he is jealous, or simply in a bad mood. However, pay close attention to tone and watch your man’s eyes. If the growl resonates more like a purr, you might be in for a rocking night of romance.

 

4. After a date, if you look out your window and see a wolf in the shadows watching your home, your man might a Wahya. They are very protective of the ones the love and will always put themselves between you and any threat, no matter how great or small.


5. If you hear the word, “Mine,” incessantly run through your mind in your man’s voice, he might be a Wahya who has decided to love and cherish you forever.

If your man meets all five descriptions, especially number five, then you are definitely dating a Wahya. Wrap your arms around him and hold on tight. You’re in for one wild adventure.

 

 

 

How to tell you’re dating an Olmec Jaguar shifter

By Louisa Bacio

 

What would you do if a gorgeous hunk showed up your door professing to be from a legendary extinct tribe with paranormal shifter powers? Talk about a big cat! If you’re not quite sure what to believe, here are a few tips to figure out if they’re really an Olmec Jaguar shifter.

Intrigued? Read on!

 

1) His eyes flash golden when he’s aroused.

 

2) His abs are as hard as stone

 

3) and sometimes he can be old fashioned (ahem: hard headed), too.

 

4) His sworn enemy who promises to destroy all happiness is La Peña, which translates into The Pain.

 

5) They know where the treasure is buried!

 

 


Legend of the Jaguars, Book 1

 

Alpha’s Mate

 

A were-jaguar must find his mate before an ancient evil transforms him to stone…again.

 

After the were-jaguar Hector awakes in a museum, trapped within stone, he begins a quest to find his life mate before his enemy once again transforms him into a mythic ancient relic.

 

Legend has it that Kaitlyn’s family once was part of a tribe, and she was destined to save it from extinction. She never expected the prophecies to come true.

 

With his tribe’s sworn enemy hunting him down, Hector must convince Kaitlyn that she’s his destiny – the only person able to revive the were-jaguar and legend of the Olmec — before it’s too late.

 

 


10 Sexy Things About the Alpha Male

 

I'm pretty sure there are more than ten. Hell, he has more than ten body parts, doesn't he?


There are things about that strong male that makes him sexy. Some are physical and some come from within.

 

1. His smile. Got to love a man who knows how to smile and make others smile with him

 

2. Abs! Rock hard, tanned, or not, and lickable. Need I say more?


3. His scent. I'm talking his natural scent. No perfumes or colognes. Us humans don't notice like vampires and shifters and other creatures lurking about would. But we do pick up his scent when close to him.


4. Tattoos. I don't know about you, but tats fascinate me. Gives me something else to trace...with my tongue.

 

5. His voice. Deep, husky, and soft. And oh, the things he whispers in your ears...


6. His touch. This one depends on the mood. It's tender when you need it and demanding when you need it. ;)

 

7. He stands beside his woman, not in front of her. He's always there to catch her too.


8. Protectiveness. Who doesn't like to feel safe? Knowing that he will do anything to protect me, yeah that's sexy.

 

9. Compassionate. He's not afraid of showing his softer side.


10. His hands. Rough, soft, or in between. It's all how he uses them.

What do you think? Do you have anything to add to the list? Care to expand on one or more of my ten? Share your thoughts. What makes the alpha male sexy to you?

 

 

 


Top Ten Reasons Why Every Woman Should Marry A Shifter

 

Have you ever wished there was more to your man? What if he could shift into something else – a wolf or a bear maybe? The idea might seem frightening, but these are the reasons you should marry a shifter if you’re lucky enough to date one.

 

1. Shifters are Multidimensional

 

Have you ever dated someone who bored you to death? A shifter has many sides and never seems stale or old. Whenever you get bored of his human side, focus on his wild side.

 

2. Shifters are Immortal

 

Ever been afraid of dying old and alone? If you marry a shifter, he’ll be with you for life. Since they’re immortal, he’ll outlive you for sure. Not only that, but you know he’ll be there to put flowers on your grave year after year.

 

3. Shifters are Men and Pets All Wrapped Up in One

 

Tired of cleaning litter boxes or taking your puppy outside? Tired of remembering to feed your pets? A shifter is both a man and a pet wrapped into one – and best of all they’re housebroken.

 

4. Shifters Don’t Age

 

Do you ever worry about what your mate will look like twenty years down the road? No need to worry about that if you marry a shifter. Since they’re immortal, he’ll look exactly the same fifty years from now as he does today.

 

5. Shifters Are Loyal And Faithful

 

Once a shifter imprints on you and his inner wolf or inner bear (or inner whatever kind of shifter he is) tells him you’re the one, he’s yours for life. No worrying about infidelity with a shifter around.

 

6. Shifters Keep You Safe

 

A mortal man can’t guarantee that he’ll win every fight, but a shifter can. No matter how much danger you’re in he’ll rise to the challenge and rescue you.

 

7. Shifters Have Great Bodies

 

No worries that your man will lose his six pack abs or grow a beer belly. No, sir. When you marry a shifter you’re guaranteed that those rippled abs you’re touching today will be just as hot in fifty years. Who’d want to marry a mortal man when they could marry a shifter?

 

8. Shifters Make Great Lovers

 

Wish your man would bite your neck and pull your hair? Want to hear him growl? Shifters are primal and make awesome lovers. Why settle for anything less?

 

9. Shifters Usually Come in Packs

 

You’ll never have to worry about hating your mother-in-law. Shifters usually have an equally loyal pack with them, so you’ll gain a new family that will always have your back.

 

11. A Shifter Doesn’t Need A Halloween Costume

 

Are you tired of how commercialized Halloween has become? If you marry a shifter, you’ll never have to buy him a costume. He can just shift and he’ll win best costume year after year.

 

Shifters sound like better mates than any mortal man could ever be. So, if you get lucky enough to date a shifter, get him to put a ring on it, and he’ll be yours for life. If you’re single, forget about meeting a man at the Laundromat. If you’re looking for the one true great love of your life, check out the forest instead.

An Alpha’s Fate
A Birchwood Pack Novella
By Lia Davis


Chapter One


No. No. Bile rose, threatening to force Reagan’s lunch to make a gruesome return. The snow-white walls of her home closed in around her, and the air seemed colder. How had she not known?


Because they weren’t true mates. Even though they were bound together, their emotions and thoughts weren’t, not like they would have been if she’d mated with her fated mate.


She stared at the open journal as fury built inside her, putting her wolf further on edge. The names neatly handwritten in black ink blurred. For ten years, she’d done all she could to protect the wolves of Greenhedge; the least she could do after being forced to mate the male who’d become Alpha—a title rightfully hers. All her efforts were wasted. The bastard had sold packmates to a rogue Pack to be made into monster assassins in exchange for what? She didn’t know. She sure as hell didn’t see any extra money go into the run-down den.


Fucking power-hungry bastard.


The front door swung open, slamming into the wall. A low growl cut through her as she met the poor excuse of an Alpha’s stare. Lifting the journal, she shook it at him. “You lied to me.”


He stalked toward her, his eyes glowing with his wolf. “You are out of line, Mate.”


Was she? She thought not.


“My place is protecting my Pack from monsters like you.” Anger had all but consumed her. It was one thing to blackmail her into a loveless mating and slap her around, but to hurt her Pack?


Mason stopped before her, then gripped a handful of her hair, jerking her to him. Pain shot through her skull. She gritted her teeth and focused on his energy, his Alpha power. As his mate, she had the ability to use his strengths. Something he hadn’t realized she could do. Or maybe he thought she didn’t know how.


“You have crossed the line for the last time, asshole.”


He bared his teeth and flipped her so he could shove her torso against the desk. Her vision blinked out as her head hit the wood. When he started to tug her pants down, she roared and jerked her head up, slamming it into his nose.


Crying out, he released her and stumbled away a few steps. Not wasting time, she shifted into her wolf faster than she ever had before and lunged at him, tackling him to the ground. Her wolf had taken over, and for once the woman relished in it.


The thought that it was unfair to fight another while they were in human form was a whisper. One her wolf ignored. Mason Doyle had fucked over his last victim.


She struck, fast and hard, sinking her teeth into his neck. He bucked under her, but he was unable to shake her off. Adrenaline raced through her veins, fueling the rage. The animal wanted blood for all the innocents lost over the years. With a growl, she shook her head, tightening her hold until his body went limp and the mating bond broke.


Her breaths came in and out in deep waves as she slowly backed away. The taste of his blood coated her tongue. The wolf wanted to finish him, to revel in the kill, but there was no time. Someone was coming, and without the bond to the Pack she couldn’t tell who.

 

 


Alpha’s Fight
Hidden Breed Series
By: Christa Ann

 

Chapter 1

 

A tall man wearing camouflage came into view caring an automatic rifle. “Follow me.” he started walking back the way he came.

 

Carson’s voice boomed, “Who are you and where are you taking us? I want an explanation.” Being the alpha, he expected an answer.

 

Stopping, the stranger glanced over his shoulder to look at Carson. “You will be informed at the next stop. I don’t take orders from you, alpha. If you want the answers you seek, I suggest you follow me. Or you can go back to your pack. Your choice, make it.” He looked forward and continued on the path he started.

 

Logan came to stand beside Carson, “I don’t like this. You stay here alpha. If it’s safe, I’ll come back for you.”

 

“You all come, or no one will. That’s the only option.” The man never stopped moving.

 

“Let’s go, Logan. Just keep your eyes and ears open.” Carson shot a look at the man they followed. “Can I at least have your name?”

 

Glancing over his shoulder, “It’s Clay.”

 

Jag spoke for the first time. “I’ll cover the back, alpha.”

 

Carson took the lead with Logan following and Jag at the end, guarding their backs. He sent a message to both Logan and Jag. Remember, stay alert. I don’t like this, but we need answers. As they moved deeper into the forest Carson listened to small animals racing over leaves and twigs on the ground. The birds above resting on branches began calling to one another, alerting them of the predators. Suddenly, everything went silent and his shoulders stiffened. He heard sounds that shouldn’t be there. Footsteps not a part of their group shuffled, moving quietly but not silent enough.

 

At the same time Logan yelled, “Get down!”

 

Five men holding guns appeared out from every direction. They were all masked with camouflage in greens and browns. The one in front spoke, “Alpha. We’re only here to make sure no fighting starts and to escort you the rest of the way.” The unknown man emphasized the word ‘escort’.

 

How had he not scented them? They must be able to mask their scent somehow. Do either of you scent anything off? Both Logan and Jag shook their heads.

 

“You will need to give me more proof then just your word.” Carson growled out while in his crouched position, claws extended and ready to shift.

 

“Hello, old friend.” That came from a familiar voice he hasn’t heard in over five years.

 

“Decker? What the fuck?” The surprise evident in his voice.

 

Decker held his hand up to halt his questions, “Yes, it’s me. I had to ensure that you would come. Just follow me.”

 

“Why didn’t you just call me? Why all the sneaking around and what’s with the guns?” Carson retracted his claws and stood upright, stunned by who was behind all this.

 

Carson sent a silent message to his enforcers. Stay vigilant. Only members of his pack that completed the rights of section could send and receive telepathic messages, so their conversations were silent to outsiders.

 

When they came to the opening in the trees Carson stopped dead in his tracks at the military tent that had tables, chairs and equipment. But, what shocked him the most were the three other alphas standing there with guns trained on them. “What the fuck is going on?”

Release Day Review! Leopard's Run (Leopard People #10) Christine Feehan!

 

 

He keeps his emotions on a tight leash, but she can see the desire burning in his eyes...

 

Timur Amurov has one purpose in life: protect his family at all costs. With lethal skills honed from a violent upbringing, Timur is a leopard shifter who sees any newcomers as possible threats--and the petite blond barista who his sister-in-law, Evangeline, has hired to work in her bakery is definitely hiding something. While Timur still needs to determine if Ashe is an enemy, he does know that she is the only woman whose presence has ever truly calmed the beast roaring inside of him.

 

Ashe Bronte is well aware she has a type: sexy, gorgeous and dangerous as hell. Despite the fact that Timur is all those things and more, Ashe is in San Antonio for reasons that do not involve getting wild with a ruthless leopard--and she cannot afford to make any mistakes. But Timur has ignited something deep within her, and even though she knows she should keep her distance, every move he makes has her craving a taste...

 

 

Protecting his family is Timur’s one purpose in life until he has to determine is Ashe in the enemy even though she calms the beast roaring inside him. Ashe Bronte can’t make any mistakes, but Timur has ignited something deep within her.

 

This pulse pounding and explosive shifter romance is wicked and wild with strong, bold characters that demand readers’ attention and refuse to let go. The romance between Timur and Ashe is hot and spicy as her inner leopard awakens but the relationship has a few obstacles to be overcome, some of which are emotional which brings these characters to life as it gives depth that readers can easily connect to and some of which are outside influences that cause lots of chaos and strife. Readers can’t help but fall for any of the Leopard shifters in this series as they are dark, alpha men with hidden depths that tugs at heartstrings and Timur certainly fits that description with a capital T while Ashe is a feisty and daring feline that has lots of appeal.

 

The Amurov brothers’ enemies are closing in from all directions and if they don’t discover just who they all are they just might lose not only everything they’ve worked for but those they hold dear and Readers won’t want to miss a thing during this fast paced and smooth flowing plot that is full of explosive action and thrilling suspense. The story is further enhanced as betrayals are revealed and surprising twists keeps the characters on their toes. Once again, this fascinating and pulse pounding series entertains readers and ensures that they want to re-read these books often.

I live on the beautiful Northern California coast and draw much inspiration from the beauty around me. I've always been a writer, for as long as I remember. My sisters were forced to read all of my books from the time I could write a story on paper.

 

I love family. I love my brothers and sisters, my children, my grandchildren and my great grandchildren. My home was always full of kids and children give me so much joy.

 

I also love my "sisters of the heart", those friends who have supported me through my life, laughed with me, cried with me and loved me regardless of how crazy my life got. I am a strong supporter of women helping each other which is why I became a third degree black belt and taught self-defense to women who'd been abused.

 

I love people and dogs, good books and great coffee and I'm lucky to know just how blessed I am.

The Witches of Cleopatra Hill: Books 1–3 By Christine Pope Free!

Reblogged from Cat's Books: Romance :
The Witches of Cleopatra Hill, Books 1-3: Darkangel, Darknight, & Darkmoon - Christine Pope

Ancient curses...family feuds...finding a happily ever after can be a real nightmare for the modern witch.

DARKANGEL:
As the future prima, or head witch of her clan, Angela McAllister is expected to bond with her consort, her soul mate, during her twenty-first year, thus ensuring that she will come into her full powers at the appointed time. The clock is ticking down, and her consort has yet to make an appearance. Instead, her dreams are haunted by a man she’s never seen, the one she believes must be her intended match. But with time running out, and dark forces attempting to seize her powers for their own, Angela is faced with a terrible choice: give up her dreams of the man she may never meet and take the safer path, or risk leaving her clan and everyone in it at the mercy of those who seek their ruin.

DARKNIGHT:
Kidnapped by a rival witch clan, Angela McAllister envisions a dark future for herself until she discovers her captor’s brother is the unknown man who has haunted her dreams since she was a child. Forced to re-evaluate everything she’s ever known about the Wilcox witches, Angela begins to explore the powerful connection that binds her to Connor Wilcox, despite the generations of hostility between their families and the disapproval of those closest to her. And when a dark, malignant force arises, Angela knows she must draw on her growing powers as prima to protect enemies and allies alike...even if her choice threatens to tear her new and fragile love apart.

DARKMOON:
One hundred and fifty years ago, a terrible curse descended on the Wilcox clan, dooming generations of women to an early death should they bear a child to the bloodline of Jeremiah Wilcox. Now Angela McAllister is carrying Connor Wilcox’s child, and if she can’t find a way to break the curse, that same doom will fall upon her. The solution to her dilemma lies somewhere in the past—her own, and that of the woman who cast the curse so many years before. Angela’s quest to find the answers she needs will transform the lives of everyone she knows, Wilcox and McAllister alike, and will forever change everything she has ever believed about herself.

BOOK DETAILS:

Two Witches and a Whiskey 
by Annette Marie 
(The Guild Codex: Spellbound, #3) 
Publication date: February 8th 2019
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

 


Synopsis:

 

Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar—at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

 

I’m not a badass mage like my three smokin’ hot best friends. I’m not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I’m just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

 

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

 

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell.

And I have about three seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug.

 

I’m pretty sure this wasn’t part of the job description.

Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures.
