What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?

Curvy Dina Taylor hates the idea of online dating. It’s something kids do, not 36-year old women, whose boyfriends have left them for the office intern. But her best friend Lauren has a secret she’s bursting to share: there are men out there who absolutely love voluptuous girls like her. All Dina has to do is tap Shiftr, the cute little paw-print app that Lauren has just installed on her phone.

In the time it takes Dina to get over her shock that there are guys who can shift into animals, she’s hit up by Logan – a dark-eyed bear-guy with a torso like sculpted marble and eyes like pools of lust. He tells her that he feels a magnetic connection to her, but before she can tell him that the feeling’s mutual, her clumsy thumb swipes the wrong way, and he’s gone.

Dina is distraught, but Tamika, the creator of Shiftr has a cunning plan that may just bring them together again. Will Dina find the sexy Logan in the midst of the eccentric matchmaker’s beautiful, opulent summer garden party? And will they discover that they’re fated to be together?

To the outside world, Kristin Pasternak is a feisty, statuesque, auburn-haired journalist. Only those close to her know that she suffers from PCOS, a condition that has left her unhappy with her body, and scared that she won’t be able to have children.

When best friends Dina and Lauren introduce her to Shiftr, the secret dating app for curvy girls and shape shifting men, she thinks that none of the guys will want her – especially smoking-hot tiger shifter, Roman, whose profile says that he definitely wants cubs.

But, according to the app, Kristin and Roman are a 100% match, and when Roman scents Kristin for the first time, he seems to know her body better than she knows it herself.

Will the sexy tiger be able to convince Kristin to let go of her insecurities and abandon herself to the crazy attraction that sizzles between them?

Melissa Ericson has a panic attack as her best friend Lauren is giving birth, but sexy shifter doctor, Harley, is on hand to calm her down. When she later finds out that he’s not only on Shiftr – the secret dating app for curvy girls and gorgeous shape-shifting men – but is also a great match for her, she’s ecstatic.

But there’s something about Doctor Harley that keeps tugging at Melissa’s mind, and suddenly she’s drawn back into a place she never wanted to think about again.

The past is so confusing and painful for her, but will the smoking-hot werewolf prove to be her destroyer or her savior?


This is a trilogy worth reading. I read the first story as a bonus freebie from one of the authors other stories. I was immediately hooked and had to find the other books in this series. I was thrilled to find it here as a 3 in 1 book. You get hot sexy shifters and HEA’s. What more can reader’s for.

The Recluse and the Extrovert

swipe Left


* * * Complete, full-length novel! Can be read as a standalone book. * * *

What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away?


With the bone structure of a god and abs that turn smart girls’ brains to mush, Leigh Canvey is the hottest member of his Hope Valley bear clan. But a painful childhood of being abandoned by his parents and brought up by a pure-blood bear has left him a recluse who lives on a mountaintop, far away from the other bears in his clan.

Flame-haired Scottish fireball Adaira has just come to town, hoping that her cousin Tamika, the creator of Shiftr – the secret dating app for curvy girls and shape-shifter guys – will be able to set her up with someone who appreciates her curves – and her sassy nature.

When Shiftr picks the two of them out as a perfect match, even Leigh’s animal nature isn’t enough to dissuade the energetic Adaira from hiking all the way up the mountain to meet him. But he’s not the only one who likes the look of the curvy beauty, and when an alpha wolf decides to kidnap her, Leigh has to put aside all his misgivings about humans and snatch her away from danger – even if it threatens the solitary existence he’s created for himself.

What do they have in common? You’ll have to read about all the trials these two mates go through to get their Happily Ever After. It’s a series of miscommunication and misunderstandings, but I promise you that this story is worth the read.

Dead Sexy Dragon

The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep, especially since he’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.

But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is an added bonus.

Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And what the hell is going on in the basement at night?

Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere.

My Review…..

I really liked Dead Sexy Dragon. It was quick and a light romance. Stig is a big and tough marine who just so happens to also be a centuries-old dragon. One day, his best friend’s baby sister shows up on his dorm step…right at the beginning of his mating phase. Cora lands into trouble that she cannot handle and goes running to the man who promised to protect her, and the man she’s always been attracted to. I think Stig and Cora are a perfect match. The quick escalation of their relationship and the sex is explained because of Stig’s mating phase. Usually I like a little more build up but the sexual tension between the two is so strong that I didn’t mind. I quickly became jealous of Cora and I wanted to have her dreams.

Stig and other dragons are hunted by a group called the Knights because of a millennia-old feud. Cora’s troubles bring her closer to the dragons than she ever thought. I really appreciated the development in Cora and Stig’s relationship because it clears up the apprehension and complications of their relationship (sorry I have to be vague but it is a massive spoiler).

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for a true and honest review.

The Reluctant Countess

Regal, poised, and elegant, Sophie, Countess of Monmouth, is everything that a highborn lady should be. But Sophie is hiding a past that is far from royal. When Patrick, Earl of Coulter, realizes that her story doesn’t add up, he resolves to find out the truth of what Sophie and her sister-in-law are concealing. Although Sophie has every reason to avoid him, the handsome and charismatic Patrick awakens something wicked deep within her soul . . . a powerful need that Sophie must stifle in order to protect her place in society.
Despite Sophie’s humble background, the raven-haired beauty has won Patrick’s heart. But what Sophie needs now is an ally. Viscount Myles Dumbly, the disgruntled former heir of Monmouth, is determined to expose Sophie as a fraud to recapture his lost inheritance. Soon Patrick is drawn into a fight for both their lives. Somehow he must find a way not only to rescue Sophie from poverty once and for all, but to keep her in his arms forever.

Every aspect of this novel, from the characters to the plot and the romance, was superb. They sexual attraction between Sophie and Patrick is enough to melt these pages, yet they are both loyal and caring characters. Sophie is very strong, coming from a unique background and hiding her identity to protect those important to her. Beyond her tough exterior, however, is a fragile heart of gold that Patrick vehemently protects.

First, you have Sophie, Countess of Monmouth. She is the young beautiful widow of the Earl of Monmouth. She popped up two years ago and this is her first season in London society. Family obligations are the excuse she gives as to why she was never introduced to London society prior to this season. Sophie is quite old at twenty-two for her first season, widow or not. Besides being the earl’s widow, she is also mother to their young son Timmy, the new Earl of Monmouth. She is welcomed into London Society, escorted by her high birth sister-in-law Letty, the dead earl’s blood sister. These two ladies are very devoted to one another. Sophie is beautiful, but aloof, and has been dubbed the ice maiden by the ton (Britain’s High Society). She twirls around the peerage dance floors, but doesn’t engage the males in small talk, in fact she hardly talks at all. The females are jealous of her beauty, and the males want to bed her. Oh, whatever is a widow to do?

What I liked about Sophie is she isn’t the simpering damsel, as I had first envisioned. She is a spirited heroine with a backbone, but she is living in a society where there are very set rules and guidelines. Sophie is written as a genuine character, flaws and all. I found her very refreshing, and completely likable.

Enter Patrick Earl of Coulter, handsome and not married. In fact, he has no plans to be married. He attends ton functions because that is what society expects of him. Unlike the parents and their daughters, he is not on the prowl for a wife. But he certainly doesn’t mind looking for a lover. Patrick’s sights are set on the beautiful widow ice maiden. He knows that something is not quite right about her.

He was with the old Earl shortly before he died, and no wife or son were mentioned at that time. He believes her to be an impostor, despite her close relationship with her sister-in-law. Patrick has a keen intellect and a strong background in spying from war. He believes that he will uncover the countess’ secrets if she has any.

He has one major clue into uncovering her secrets and that is she counts steps while she dances. For a lady, no matter how sheltered or hidden away she was in the country, would have been practicing her dance steps at a very young age. A true lady would not need to count steps. He has caught her in this dastardly deed, and it spurs his resolve to expose her. What boon is he seeking, if he uncovers her treachery? Well of course what any red-blooded peerage earl wants from a widow; her under him.

Patrick starts out cold and calculating. Why should he care if she is a fraud? But he does care, almost too much. At first he convinces himself that he is obliged to protect the dead earl’s reputation and family from a charlatan. He quickly becomes a possessed man with his desire to uncover Sophie’s secrets. Patrick goes out of his way to catch brief glimpses of the thawed ice maiden, and is surprised by what he uncovers. He is touched by the way she talks about her son. The child is obviously very much-loved by his mother, an oddity in itself, because most parents of the peerage were known to have distant relationships with their children.

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen)

This one ended with a HUGE cliffhanger. Why that didn’t annoy the hell out of me? I have no clue.,

Escaping Reality starts off that something has happened in Lara’s life to force her to have to become Amy. Amy is smart, beautiful, but has been living in fear of whatever is hunting her. She receives a note telling her that her identity has been compromised and she must assume a new identity. There is a protector out there and he provides her with things to keep her safe. On her way to her new location she meets Liam Stone.

Liam is well, amazing!! I instantly loved him, he is every bit the mysterious, gorgeous and talented billionaire recluse he is described to be, and the perfect contrast to Amy’s character. He is also charming and enigmatic, even though his actions and motives appear ambiguous at times. He is a dominant in many ways, and craves to possess and alleviate Amy’s fears, and be the only person who can show her what it feels like to be taken care of again. His dominant and overbearing nature is outweighed by his compassion and sweet, yet intense affections toward Amy. Yes, Liam is one of those perfectly written male protagonists.

Escaping Reality is a fast-paced romance with a huge helping of mystery. From the beginning to the very end, I was hooked! And I mean that. There was not a slow moment in this book. That makes it very hard when it’s the middle of the night and I really need to go to bed but really don’t want to!

I received an ARC of this book for a true and honest review.
