9. Double Dragons (Dragons of New York Book 1) by Terry Bolryder

Book Description:
They’re hot as fire, and if you mess with their mate, you’re bound to get burned.Double Dragons

Draven and Ran are dragon shifters, the fire-breathing enforcers of the shifter world. The ones they call when things go wrong. Strong, sexy and wealthy, the only thing the two partners are missing is a mate to share it all with. But that’s tricky in the dragon world and after years of searching, the dragons have basically given up. That is, until a sexy, reckless human librarian lands in their path during a mission.

Melissa knows she would have been in hot water had the two handsome, powerful and mysterious men not showed up to save her butt from a group of violent men. Still, when her rescuers take her back to their New York loft, she’s confronted by a mystery she never expected. Dragons and other shapeshifting creatures exist. And these dragons are definitely hotblooded.

But as the sexy dragons show Melissa all the perks of being their mate, Melissa is also uncovering the dangerous secrets of the dragon world. If she isn’t willing to risk everything, their chances at a happily ever after might just go up in flames.

“Terry Bolryder portrays the existence and lives of dragons in a way that is unique to any I’ve every read before. It is thrilling and exciting to immerse myself in her imagination. She writes the world of dragons as protectors that work in pairs; each having one particular gift that compliments the other… I would recommend this book to everyone who loves shifter stories, steamy sex scenes, and a new take on dragons. I hope Ms. Bolryder plans on writing more about other dragon pairs or single shifters along the same story line.” – Amazon Review


8. Saved by the Wolf by Marie Mason

Book Description:Saved by the Wolf
Logan McCall had always wanted to be a family man—in spite of—his playboy reputation. Find his mate, have a few pups and settle down into a long, loving relationship. That sounded good, real good to him.

During a storm that rocked Chicago for three days, Logan found fate had a wicked sense of humor when it sent nurse Katie Wilson tumbling into his life.

Driving along a snow covered highway in the middle of a blizzard, Katie swore off men. It was a man who had put her in this dangerous situation. Well, a man and her stubborn pride. Unwilling to waste the romantic getaway that had already been paid for at a secluded mountain cabin just outside the city, she decided to enjoy the weekend all by herself—if you didn’t count the adult toys she had packed in her suitcase and the multiple pints of ice cream she planned to buy on her way out of the city.

The last thing she’d been expecting on her binge-eating, binge-crying weekend was being Saved by the Wolf.

“Her stories do not disappoint, and Saved by the Wolf is no exception. I loved Logan’s character from the first. His playboy reputation hides a man wanting a mate and pups. The whole premise, in all three books, is about a woman stranded in a snow storm with an Alpha wolf shifter, which was fantastic. I can’t wait to read more by this author.” – Amazon Review
“I love the writing style and the sweetness. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of dirty, dirty moments, but there’s always caring and respect. Logan is a real alpha male, meaning he takes on the responsibility to care for his lady’s needs, not just an arrogant jerk like so many books portray an “alpha”. – Amazon Review


7. Healed by the Dragon: Boxed Set (Parts #1-4) by Jessie Donovan

Book Description: Healed by the Dragon

Finlay Stewart hasn’t been able to forget the scarred dragonwoman he met at Stonefire six months ago. When the same female agrees to be fostered with his clan, Finn pursues her. Balancing his clan duties with his need to see Arabella isn’t easy, especially with the existing rift in the clan, but he’s determined to try. Arabella’s inner strength draws him like no other female before.

Will Arabella trust Finn with her past? Or, will the rift in his clan tear them apart?

“Jessie Donovan has delivered yet another amazing series and what a tasty tidbit it is! Her latest masterpiece of paranormal romance is entitled, Healed by the Dragon and it totally rocks. Jessie has once again dazzled us with her boundless imagination, amazing talent and incredible skill. What I wouldn’t give to get a look inside Jessie’s brilliant little brain. If I could bottle her imagination and market it, I’d be a billionaire! The story is exciting, original, imaginative, thrilling, spellbinding, riveting, charming, humorous, heartwarming, romantic and seductive. The dialogue is smart, snappy, light, refreshing, well written, hilarious and flows effortlessly. The characters are fascinating, captivating, intriguing, engaging, endearing, sexy and at times, laugh out light funny. Donovan has taken these elements and expertly crafted them into a delightfully entertaining and deliciously cute read.” – Amazon Review
“The books chronicle this journey to an end that makes you sigh. Finn is such a handsome prize and well worth the journey. Ms Donovan does an excellent job of keeping you hanging by your fingernails (the ones I didn’t bite off!) as you read through the trials and tribulations of Ara & Finn’s journey. A really great read, you won’t be able to put it down!” – Amazon Review

They plot to send one of their own to seduce the reporter, then blackmail her into writing a retraction.

Women practically fall at the feet of hulking, handsome Hawk Luna, and Hawk relishes the idea of conquering and destroying the fiery redhead who’s caused so much trouble for his kind. The last thing he expects is to develop real feelings for her, but their liaison awakens a hunger in him that he cannot deny. He kidnaps Jack and brings her to his Amazon jungle colony, but the two lovers are soon embroiled in deadly colony politics and threatened by a looming global species war.

“Can’t even begin to describe how much I have enjoyed this author and this series – great story, characters full of depth and relatable, action that many times took me by surprise. Looking forward to reading the next book even though I know it’s the end of a great escape and series.” – Amazon Review
“Like all of J.T. Geissinger’s stories, this one pushes the plot along quickly, and is filled with endearing, realistic characters that you can’t help but love. I finished the story quickly even though I knew I would be sad when finished. But I just couldn’t put it down.” – Amazon Reviews


5. Deal With The Devil (Purgatory Book 4) by Cynthia Eden

Ella Lancaster is tired of being a prisoner. She escaped one hell just to find herself in another, though Eric doesn’t consider her containment with his agents as punishment.

“Cynthia Eden needs no introduction and her paranormal stories are just brilliant and fascinating to read. “Deal With The Devil” is a fine art of Eric and Ella. I’ve always admired Eric, his secrets and his control of everything and Cynthia does a stupendous job with his character and his story.” – Amazon Review

Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She’s smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she’s getting dangerously close to the truth-and perilously close to his heart…

“Paige Tyler always amazes me with her wonderful, well written stories and Hungry Like the Wolf was no exception. I loved the characters in this book. Hungry Like the Wolf is packed with action, drama, humor and steamy sex. I look forward to reading more from Paige Tyler soon. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.” – Amazon Review


3. Bear the Heat (Fire Bears Book 3)

Book Description:Bear the Heat

But when she meets Boone Keller, tatted up bad boy bear shifter, her world tilts dangerously on its axis. And the more he lets her into his secret life, the harder she falls for a man she isn’t supposed to love.

If Boone wants to keep the fiery news reporter he’s been secretly coveting safe, the friend-zone is where she’ll have to stay. He’s been doing a bang-up job of avoiding the woman who has been publicly rallying for his crew, but a chance meeting with Cora is killing his reserve. And when she shuts down his attempt to push her away, he’ll have to decide whether to draw her in close to protect her from his secrets, or cut her loose to save her life.

“I love T.S. Joyce! Her writing has you getting so involved with each and every characted that you want to jump right into the pages and fight side by side with the crew. Boone and Cora are amazing together! Their story is by far my favorite. I laughed and cried with them. Fan for life!” – Amazon Review
“I laughed out loud during several parts of the story, but found others very touching. I’m a HUGE T.S. Joyce fan and fully admit to dropping everything when this book came out so that I could immediately dive into the story, and I wasn’t dissappointed. Boone and Cora’s chemistry is powerful, but both characters are written to be very real and relatable. Excellent story and I can’t wait for the next T.S.Joyce release.” – Amazon Review


2. Bridenapped

Book Description:Bridenapped
Bridenapping? That old tradition where the Alpha grabs the bride of his choice and takes her back to his pack’s property to submit to his lustful demands? That’s so 19th century.

Unfortunately, the law is still on the books, and quite enforceable. And even worse, the sexy new Alpha of the Verhold Pack has the nerve to stake his claim – on the one human in Lakeville who has reason to loathe him the most.

Caitlin Bellefont blames Kristofer for taking her family’s lands, but if she refuses him, it means financial ruin for her entire town. Now Caitlin’s only hope of escape is to resist the scorchingly sexy man who is determined to show her the pleasures of submitting to an Alpha. Not only that, the whole world is watching – and not all of the eyes on Caitlin are friendly.

While TV shows beg for interviews, and social media sites are blowing up with rumors and news leaks, it seems that someone very dangerous will stop at nothing to prevent this wedding. Can Caitlin sort out her tangled feelings for Kristofer, and resolve her family’s bitter feud? She’s got until the next full moon to find out.

“The characters are well developed, the world-building is wonderful, the secondary characters are hilarious, and there is conflict in the pack that causes a death challenge. You will really like the spunky heroine, the chivalrous hero, the teenaged cousin with a blog and a hacker boyfriend, and you will hate the evil money-grubbing human major, tradition-bound beta, and evil lady-in-waiting.” – Amazon Review
“Very riveting, cute, quirky, sexy. These are a few words that I would choose to describe this book that I have just read. I would recommend this book to read, when you have a quiet moment, and are in just the need for fun, a little adventure, sexy scenes, the supernatural. Then this is the read for you.” – Amazon Review


1. When An Alpha Purrs  (A Lion’s Pride Book 1)

Book Description:When an Alpha Purrs
A lion’s pride isn’t defined only by those he commands, but also resides with his hair – so when a human dares to butcher Arik’s mane, he gets his revenge—and claims her as his mate.

A billionaire CEO and leader of the largest East Coast pride, Arik is a ladies man and a lion. Used to commanding others, and obedience, he can’t believe it when a hairdresser with tempting curves chops off a hunk of his precious mane.

But her biggest mistake is in running from him.

Run as fast as you can, little mouse, because this cat loves to chase—and pounce.

Oh, and he also likes to nibble on tender bits. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for a human woman, a woman who can make the impossible happen because everyone knows lions can’t purr…until now.

“This was a fantastic book. Great characters plus lots of kitty puns along the way had me laughing so hard. However, it isn’t all S&G, there is a dastardly plot afoot that has Kira running. No one is going to mess with the king’s mouse! Lots of little twists along the way keep this book fast-paced and entertaining. And the characters…OMG! I’m in love with all the secondary characters! Oh my, the beta and omega, really I don’t know which one I love more. The only thing that disappointed me was the ending…as in why did this book have to end. Rawr!” – Amazon Review
“I love a book filled with humor and an arrogant alpha put in his place by a human woman. I love a woman who can hold her own around dominant shifters, and yet is emotionally fragile as regards her relationship with said shifter. Throw in an evil ex who needs to be dealt with under shifter justice and you have one great book. I loved it.” – Amazon Review
