These book I bought myself….
Why I read this book: I do love a good shifter series, this one ticked all my boxes.
Warning: I would advise reading these books in series order other wise you may get very confused.
An Impossible Mate:
Loner Matt Urban has somehow ended up as alpha to a pack of outcasts and misfits. When an injured shifter blunders onto their territory one night, swearing he didn’t know it was pack territory, Matt is suspicious. It doesn’t help that the stranger, Jesse Turner, is as stubborn as Matt. Wanting answers, Matt persuades Jesse to stay a while, and the intense attraction they feel for one another soon blazes into heat. That’s when Matt realizes—the stranger with the smart mouth and the attitude problem is his mate.
Matt, still mourning the lover he lost years ago, doesn’t want a mate, and Jesse doesn’t believe in mates. Yet neither of them can deny the pull they feel toward one another.
They’re still struggling with the situation when a hostile alpha claims Jesse. Matt has to fight to protect Jesse. First, though, he has to fight Jesse’s stubborn independence if he’s to win his heart.
A Liars Moon:
Journalist Riley Clark is chasing the story that could make his career—the reported sighting of a fabled Argent shifter. His investigation takes him to the town of Elk Ridge, which turns out to be everything he hates. Things start to look up, however, when he meets Jason Nichols.
Jason is shy, sweet, and has the most beautiful smile Riley has ever seen. Riley wants to keep seeing that smile, and as he spends time with Jason, his hoped for scoop becomes less and less important. But his editor is still pressuring him for that story. So when Riley discovers that Jason is a member of the pack he’s in town to look into, it seems like fate—he can be with Jason and continue his investigation at the same time.
His plan has just one drawback—he hasn’t thought about what will happen if Jason and his pack discover Riley’s real reason for being in Elk Ridge.
Red Moon Rising:
Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, Tristan Howe is abducted and imprisoned by a pack at war with his own. His future looks bleak until he finds an unexpected ally in enemy pack member, Colby Williams. A fragile bond develops between them as they escape together.Once he’s safely back with his own pack, Tristan finds his feelings for Colby are more than just gratitude for being rescued. He’s delighted to learn that they’re reciprocated, and even more excited to realize he and Colby are mates.
But idealistic Tristan finally has to face up to the fact that even true love might not be enough to defeat the forces ranged against them—not least his pack-mates’ suspicion and hostility toward Colby, and a mate so scarred by his abusive past that he doesn’t know how to be free. All Tristan can do is try.
NOTE: Beta hero raped during the story. It is not described in detail and is not intended for titillation.
9/10 Pots of Gold
An Impossible Mate:
Matt is Alpha to a pack of misfits and outcasts. An injured shifter is found on pack lands, Matt soon realises he has met his mate.
Jesse is young, prickly and very outspoken, he knows nothing about shifter history, he didn’t even realise he was on pack land. Most of all he doesn’t believe in mates.
This is a fantastic start to a new series, the author explains a little about shifter History as Jesse is trying to learn, little does he realise he is a very special shifter that every pack will want. Matt and the pack struggle to keep the pack and Jesse safe…..
A Liars Moon:
Liars Moon follows straight on from an Impossible Mate, the Argent secret isn’t so secret, a journalist is sent to investigate.
Jason is very sweet and very shy for a shifter, he also very innocent. He meets a male in the diner he cooks in, he gets very flustered and doesn’t realise he has met his mate.
Riley is the journalist sent to investigate the rumours about the Argent and the pack hiding him. He meets Jason without knowing he is a shifter or part of the pack he is investigating.
I really enjoyed this story, it proved that lies don’t pay especially when the heart is involved. Riley was an ass but he would anything not to hurt Jason.
I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series….
Red Moon Rising:
This book starts off with a bang, that carries on through out the book. I found this one has a faster pace and with much more going on in the background than the fist too books.
Tristan is kidnapped at the start of this book by the Pack that wants Jesse. Colby is a member of the rival pack, he has been abused by Nico for years. He helps Tristan to escape and helps him back to his own pack. He expects to be killed on sight. The poor love is shocked that not all Alpha’s are evil.
I love Tristan, he is bouncy and happy all the time, I am so pleased he found his mate….
