Review ~ Seducer’s Moon by Loribelle Hunt

Lunar Mates Book 9

Two wolves. One mate. A secret so big it will stun the werewolf world.

Gage Rylon has a secret. He’s the heir of the last Regis, the king of werewolves, but more than that, his father was leader of the Society of Rogues and murdered his own mate, Gage’s mother.
Orphaned and separated from his twin Gideon at the age of thirteen, Gage is finally reunited with his brother. But as it turns out, they’ve both set out to claim the same mate.

Marilyn Sanders has no intention of taking one mate, much less two. Throw in the fact that one of them is the Regis and she’s even more determined to keep her distance. If only they weren’t so damned irresistible. As if the dominant, overbearing Alpha would allow her to resist.

But there is something more dangerous than two mates lurking in the shadows. As Gage makes his identity known to the werewolf world, he comes under threat from those who won’t return to central rule. Worse, the new leader of the Society wants him eliminated…

Reader discretion advised: Contains ménage and light BDSM elements

Cara’s Review:
I read one or two of Loribelle Hunt’s books a while back, but haven’t come across any since. After reading, “Seducers Moon,” I plan on changing that habit! This book is part of a series, but, as I said, I haven’t read the other books in the series, and certainly didn’t feel lost in this novel- so we’ll call it a stand-alone. Just enough information and back story plugged in, without overwhelming readers who have been following the story (don’t you hate it when that happens?)

Anyway, strong work by Ms. Hunt results in the tale of Marilyn, Gage, and Gideon. Marilyn and Gage know they are one another’s mates, but Gage feels it safer to keep distance between them, and deny their mating link. However, that all changes when the secrets of the past come uncovered. Enter Gage’s hot twin Gideon. You’ll need a tall glass of ice water when you’re reading their mating scene: considered yourself warned!

This is a pretty awesome book, the struggles of the pack showcased, with new ones being created. Marilyn is a strong woman, and has already worn the hat of pack matriarch…even without the actual mating marks. She is able to slip into the roll easily. There are definitely other avenues in their relationship that I would love to have seen explored (hello, Dom/Sub?), but the book was action packed, and literally had no room for anything else!

I would strongly recommend this book to lovers of shifters, menages, and strong heroines. I know that I am going to run out and get some more of this series, and can’t wait for the next!

Review – Halloween in Paradise by Tianna Xander

Halloween
When Gabriella decides to stay in Paradise after her plane crashes, she didn’t expect to fall in love with one man, let alone two. Now that she’s established herself as the local loony writer, can she stop herself from dreaming up plots with herself as the heroine and her two hotties as the heroes in her own hot romance?

Vincent and Corbin first arrive in Paradise a week before Halloween. They can’t believe they found not only a town full of shifters, but their long-awaited mate. Can they convince the beautiful and talented woman to claim them and leave her new home in Paradise?

Cara’s Review
I’m honestly not quite sure how I missed this book…I have all of Ms. Xanders’s books, but someone how this one sneaked past me. I was delighted when I came across it for a couple of reasons. First, the Paradise Series is super cool; there are in jokes and running stories that make you laugh as you read through them. Second, when I say there are hot mating scenes, I mean, HOLY SMOKES!!! Third, there are shifters….need I say more?

While you can read Halloween in Paradise as a stand-alone, I think you’ll be much more in the know if you read some of the other novellas first. Like I said, lots of little jokes, and arc stories (who is stealing those ice sculptures?). However, if you’re looking for a hot read, by all means pick this one up. This book also introduces a place similar to Paradise, which will be featured in stories all its own.

Gabby found herself in Paradise after her plane crashes in the area (see, if you had read the other books, you would know what happens to the others rescued from the plane!). Two shifters passing through the area stumble upon her while she is sitting in the local diner. Vincent Rouchue and Corbin Lyon haven’t specifically come to Paradise to find their mate, but they are certainly thrilled with their good fortune.

One big question mark in my head though, is that Gabby states that she had been in a week long relationship with two men in her past, but when Vincent and Corbin ask her about it, she says she’s never been with two men. Maybe that week long relationship never got to that stage? I don’t know.

Regardless, I strongly recommend this book to followers of the Paradise series, or if you like shifters books and are seeking something a bit different from the norm…fair warning though: these books are hot and erotic. May not want to read it on the subway on the way to work…

Ten Years ago love slipped through Chance’s lasso. This time “He was going after her and she didn’t stand a chance, just like a calf in a chute, he was going to rope her with his love and ride back into her life.”
Carrie Stewart is a dedicated horsewoman. She runs a successful breeding and training program. She is a good friend, a good sister and a favorite aunt, but she has been burned by love. Carrie has never gotten over her first love, Chance Ryan. After ten years of absence Chance shows back up in her life. Should she risk her heart again, with the man who left it broken at her feet in the past? Chance has some serious work ahead of him to win back the one woman he could never forget.

Excerpt:
Chance felt like he’d been thrown from a bucking bronco. Ten years. He hadn’t seen her in ten years. And it was just like before. God, she was even more beautiful than she had been at eighteen. Time had matured her body, her curves a little fuller than they had been. Her hair was short now, almost boyish in length, but curling softly around her face it looked feminine and flirty. It was a deeper shade of blonde now too, a golden honey color that looked stunning against her sun-bronzed skin. What the hell was she doing here? And who the hell was the kid with her? Chance was busy doing mental math, the kid looked nine or ten. Carrie had called him several times in the months after he left. He’d never returned her calls. Could she have been trying to tell him she was pregnant? No it couldn’t be, she would have told him. Wouldn’t she have?
“I’d say small world, but since it really is a small world and we haven’t run into each other in ten years…”
Carrie arched one eyebrow, he always loved when she did that, it looked so haughty and hot.
“What brings you here?” Chance asked
“Same as you I guess, looking for some brood mares.”
“Actually, we’re selling this mare.” Nodding at the other, nearly forgotten man in the stall. “This is my brother, Chase.”
“Nice to meet you,” Carrie said, looking down at Tyler, “Well, we need to get to the Coliseum, Tyler wants to see the cutting.” Keeping her arm around his shoulders they turned to leave.
“We should talk,” Chance said
Carrie looked over her shoulder and stared him straight in the eye. “I think the time for talking is long past.”
The phrase she was so mad she could chew nails and spit screws ran though his mind at her look. Damn. He had really fucked things up between them. Why hadn’t he taken her calls again?
Oh, yeah, to give her a chance at a good life.
“I really need to talk to you.”
“There’s nothing left to say.”
