Lose yourself in Growl, the sinfully sexy paranormal shape-shifting romance anthology, headlined by New York Times bestselling author Eve Langlais!
In Legal Wolf’s Mate, taking on a pro bono murder case isn’t a problem for a lawyer who enjoys a challenge. Discovering his new client is his mate? A tad more complicated. Gavin has no intention of settling down, especially not with a woman accused of murder, but once he sets eyes on Megan, his fate is sealed.
In The Alpha’s Woman, Kira Radney is all delicious curves and strong will and has no desire to be a subservient mate. When a member of her father’s pack attempts to make her his mate by force, Kira has no choice but to flee. The last thing she wants is to submit to any male and their pack. But when her escape attempt leads her straight into the arms of an alpha wolf-a sexy, dangerous, protective alpha-Kira must fight against her need to be free, and her secret desire to be controlled…
In Feral Passions, what better place for an adventurous woman to explore her wild side than a luxurious resort in northern California’s beautiful Trinity Alps? Especially when that resort is run by sexy werewolves looking for mates-Feral Passions Resort, where fantasies come true.
The order of the stories in my version was different to the order above. My story 2 was Feral Passions. I’ve done a sort of mini review for each book.
Legal Wolf’s Mate.
An interesting introduction to a new-to-me world of shapeshifters. The epilogue was amusing and I may have to locate the next story/book/novella because I like cat shifters and Broderick seems so humourously catlike. But this story wasn’t about him, It was about Gavin and Megan. The who-dunnit was a nice counterpart to the heavy romance and gave it more substance. Though the Megan based twist seemed a little odd it was a good surprise!
This one seemed all about the orgies. The plot was unfortunately limited and could have been wonderful with just a little more background and world building. I do wish we’d met Brad and Cain before Cherry did, there was little hint of their relationship until it was relevant in the story and their time together seemed rushed and unpreped. The laws of this world were interesting and I might look into any other books in this series to see what I think of them. Though I have to say so many persons of interest arriving in one week seemed a little extreme. I also found the pack dynamics odd.
The Alpha’s Woman
The time frame of this one seemed to be all over the place. She’d run away 3 months ago but she’d left Seattle (where she lived) a week ago, after the full moon but it was 2 weeks till the next full moon. Unless there were flash backs and I wasn’t paying attention. The pack dynamics had a different sort of odd in this one. They seemed very small packs and excluding her mother, Kira seemed to be the only female and they could be claimed as mate without consent which I really don’t think real wolves would be putting up with either. The history and the plot of this one was much more…more. Though Kira did little actual alpha-ing and just seemed to stand about shouting about it all, once she calmed down it mellowed out. The writing style seemed overly flowery in this one, using 15 words where 4 would have done the same. Some people like this type of writing, unfortunately I do not.
A good collection of stories to introduce you into various shapeshifting/werewolf adult romance worlds.
