Relentless wolf shapeshifters hunt for your pleasure in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling authors Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden . . .

LIKE A WOLF WITH A BONE
Shelly Laurenston
Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn’t be happier when the most-feared member of the South’s rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there’s nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud—and unleash her wildest instincts. . .

WED OR DEAD
Cynthia Eden
Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem—Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla’s secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game . . .

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


By SpiceI have no idea how I missed reading Howl For It seeing as how it has a Pride Story by Shelly Laurenston and a Cynthia Eden story. I hoarded Shelly Laurenston books, doling them out to myself one by one as the cure all for book hangovers. It just about broke my heart when I read the last of my stash knowing I’d have to wait for the next one to publish. When this came up on Netgalley as a re-release I jumped on it, then figured out I had it on Kobo the whole time. If I used memes in my reviews, I’d now post one of someone kicking themself because that’s where I’m at now. I mean, I had Eggie’s story the whole time and didn’t read it.

 

Like A Wolf With A Bone by Shelly Laurenston

I loved this story!  it was smoking hot and it the heroine is a baker who specializes in pies. I love pie, in fact, I had to go buy one after reading this. But what really nailed it for me was that it was about Eggie Smith. I’ve always liked Eggie way more than I liked his daughter. He’s scary, mean, and hilarious and I’m thrilled he got his own little story. Not only was Eggie everything I wanted him to be, he found the sweetest mate in Darla. She was funny, kind and just perfect for him. It takes a whole lot of sweet to put up with the scariest Smith of them all and she was definitely up for the task.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with Eggie, Darla and both their crazy families. With lots of hilariously funny, albeit bloody, action and of course the aforementioned sexy times Ms. Laurenston once again brought me to my paranormal happy place.

Rating: 5 Eggie is the Man…well, Wolf Stars

 

Wed Or Dead by Cynthia Eden

This had everything I should like in a paranormal romance: an alpha hero, a kickass heroine who can take care of business, plus loads of action. Unfortunately, I liked the main characters individually but  I didn’t connect to them at all as a couple. By starting the book as they were getting married we weren’t along for the ride as they met and fell in love even if she wasn’t who she said she was. Not being there for that made her wedding night actions hard to swallow along with his actions after. What threw me for even more of a loop was when these two would start banging like bunnies at the absolute stupidest times, like in a holding cell.

I liked the book, I liked the characters, and I thought the plot line was interesting but the book was too short to really flesh out the details to make it believable. I may look into the full novels in the series though, since I enjoyed the premise of the book and the characters.

Rating: 3 Holding Cells Aren’t Ever Romantic Stars
