Sheba: A Wolf’s Hunger by A K Michaels

Sheba is a bit of a rebel, she is one of the first ever female Alphas and she fought tooth and claw to get there. But when the dang Hunger takes her and nothing satisfies her craving, can she keep control of her pack?

When the dreams about a Lion start, she really thinks she is losing the plot! With renegades knocking on her door she really doesn’t have time to go find her mate but a girls got to do what a girls gotta do!!!!

A Wolf’s Hunger is a great series and I love all the differing authors vibes whilst staying within the same world. Nice to have a girl in charge too!

Kendall: A Wolf’s Hunger #10 by Monica La Porta

Kendall is still reeling from the loss of his fiancee to his brother Ax. His brain understands that the Hunger hit them and they really had no choice but his heart is still catching up! He is keeping a distance between himself and his pack so his Beta takes things into his own hands and engineers a visit to another pack in Hawaii for Kendall!

Juliette is a female Alpha, a rarity to be sure. She fought and clawed her way to the top and got rid of the sleazy previous Alpha. When she meets Kendall in the forest whilst he is fighting the hunger, they end up mating but how do the sort out their new life together, there are are 1000s of miles between their packs and both are Alphas!

Juliette also has to contend with an Alpha she knows is “dating” underage she-wolves and she has a couple of unruly teenagers who need to be dealt with!

I loved that Juliette did have options. A certain sheriff could have been a possible mate and she certainly felt a pull to him but when the Hunger strikes, there really is no getting out of it. I loved how at no point Kendall made Juliette feel less than Alpha and backed her up, even when it went against his very strong Alpha tendencies. I’m still not sure how those damn teenagers didn’t succumb to Juliette’s Alpha, maybe something to do with rampant hormones????

Fab addition to the world!

HE CAN TAKE THE HEAT.
Hot, hard-bodied Sixten Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life.

At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist.

UNDER FIRE Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Scarlett Cole

“Tell me again why you are here.”

She was cute when she was prickly. He reached forward and pulled Ocean’s Eleven, the original one, from a category titled Capers, and handed it to her.

“I heard it’s movie night at the North house, so figured I’d come hang out.” He moved to the sofa, flopped down, and placed his boots on the glass coffee table.

Once the movie started, she came and sat by him, and he did his best to ignore the way her shorts rode up her thighs. He spent more of his time with company in his bed than not. And that company, whoever she was that given day, usually had no issue whatsoever dropping her clothes the moment she stepped through his door. So naked skin he was totally down with. Yet somehow, just that tiny bit of extra flesh had him feeling giddy, like he was the boy who’d lost his virginity in less than two minutes giving it to Jessica McKade.

Louisa slapped his thigh. “At least take your shoes off,” she said before she stuck her hand in their popcorn.

“Yes, ma’am,” he said, sitting forward and toeing his boots off.

A week ago, he couldn’t have imagined himself ready to take orders again so soon, but back then, he hadn’t met Louisa North.

About Scarlett Cole

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I’m getting the chance to follow that dream.

For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.

Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.

For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.

As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

The Hunting Grounds Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

Vic’s gaze fell on his phone. Maggie’s number was now in the contacts folder. It would be easy to dial it, just to check on her.

Except it was late, and she hadn’t asked for him to babysit her.

He’d gone years without seeing her, and now that they were in the same general area, it was like they were two magnets that could barely resist the pull. He wanted to hear her voice, to sit her down and share a meal that wasn’t military issue, to actually talk.

His phone rang, which startled him so much he almost dropped it. Vic stared at the screen for several precious seconds, wondering if he was more tired than he’d thought, because it sure as fuck looked like Maggie was calling him. “Sutherland.”

“It’s me.”

He sat on the edge of the bed, suddenly painfully aware that he wore only a towel. It shouldn’t matter. She couldn’t see him, didn’t know what he was or wasn’t wearing, but it did matter. “Hey, Maggie.”

“I have to apologize.” He could almost feel her soft sigh. “You were right, and I was acting like a stubborn kid. This whole thing—the murders in the park and having to deal with my past and you—has got me all twisted up.”

Maybe it was the events of the last two days, but he was so goddamn tired of doing the noble thing. He never put himself or his personal shit before a case. Not once.

He’d never wanted to before.

“I twist you up?”

“As if you didn’t know. I had something of a crush on you when we were partners—which I’m sure you knew after I threw myself at you—and apparently I didn’t outgrow it as much as I thought.”

The dimness of the room evoked an intimacy he didn’t deserve. Was Maggie sitting in her bedroom in low light, too? He liked the picture that made. “You have nothing to apologize for.”

“I’ve been making an ass of myself since you stepped off that helicopter.” She shifted, the sound painfully loud in the near silence. “And I’m doing it again, apparently. My whole point was that I’m sorry and I’ll be professional from now on. You don’t have to worry about any breakdowns or hissy fits.”

If he was smart, he’d take her apology for what it was and allow it to move them back to solid ground. There were lives on the line and a condensed timeline that was only going to get more condensed with each body that popped up.

But when Vic spoke, he didn’t move them back to firm ground. He threw them right over the edge of the cliff. “Fuck being professional. I want you, Maggie. Not the former FBI agent. Not the park ranger. I want you.”

My Review: 

Atmospheric setting for an edge of your seat thriller!!! Glacier National Park is a stunning setting for the hunt of a serial killer!

Maggie Gaines is a former FBI agent and profiler but left under a bit of a cloud. Fast forward several years and she is settled in her new role as a Ranger in Glacier National park. But her former life is about to crash into her new one when a body is found and it is linked to a serial killer.

Vic Sutherland is a the agent detailed to attend. He is also Maggie’s former partner and love interest. But when they were partner he was still married and Maggie is loathe to bring up their history and tried to maintain her distance from Vic. When a group of young hikers go missing Maggie and Vic are on the trail of this unsub and are determined to catch him.

Great story and engaging characters. I loved the intense sense of danger within the story arc and the setting is definitely atmospheric!!!

Elves don’t love, they own…

She was ordered to spy on the enemy, but when Tamryn wakes behind enemy lines, the captive of the sexiest elf she’s ever seen, far more than military secrets are at stake. Elves and faeries don’t get along. Big, brutal and as sexy as the seven hells, Bane’s kisses sear her lips and his caresses ignite a fire in her heart that wont be denied.

Bane has never met a faery he didn’t want to rip limb from limb, but Tamryn might just be the exception. Instead of secrets, he steals kisses from her lips and finds a passion that makes him burn. Elves don’t love, they own, but he may have to give his heart in the process.
