Shapeshifter Romance

Season of the Wolf

It's been a week or so since I finished this book after reading the three that proceed it. I still think about the Great Northern Pack, the society of wolves that feature in Maria Vale's uncommon shapeshifter series. (If you'd like to know more about this world in detail, Vale spoke to AAR about it ...

Forest of Thorns and Claws

A well-researched novel about conservation and tiger shifters in Sumatra, J.T. Hall’s Forest of Thorns and Claws highlights the destruction and cruelty caused by greed, poaching, stupidity and deforestation in a supposedly protected rainforest. The main character, Donovan McGinnis, is a vet wit ...

Wolf on a Mission

I took a risk selecting Wolf on a Mission. It is book six in the Salvation Pack series and N.J. Walters is a completely new-to-me author. My gamble paid off in this case as I found the book to be a good point of entry for a new reader and I liked the world created for the characters. Wolf packs a ...

Day of the Dragon

By
There are a lot of great shapeshifter romances out there, and I was particularly excited to find one with a hero who could turn into a dragon. Unfortunately, despite this compelling plot device, this is one of the most disappointing romances I have ever read. Ramsey Gallagher ...

Rapture Untamed

Rapture Untamed was absolutely a solid read, but lacked the true sizzle of chemistry to leave a lasting impression in my mind. The beginning definitely caught my attention, but as the story wore on, the characters became stereotypical in their roles. Two immortal races, The Mage and ...

Wild Fire

Though I haven't read a Christine Feehan novel in years, I feel like I haven't missed a thing. This is a familiar repeat of past stories. Bogged down by a dull resolution of the plot and detached characters, Wild Fire is a hefty, dense read. Conner Vega has returned to the Panama rainforest after ...

Pride Mates

I’ll say one thing about Jennifer Ashley – she is versatile with a capital V. She has written historical romances, contemporary romances, paranormal romances, and erotica. Pride Mates is one of her paranormals and it begins the series Shifters Unbound. Shifters look human, bu ...

Wicked

Here's my biggest reaction to this one: A publisher is actually charging $14.00 for this? Seriously? The final installment in the Pack of St. James trilogy is a generic (and completely forgettable) shape shifter romance that takes place in a wallpaper historical setting so broad-br ...

B-
Obsession Untamed

While shapeshifters have appeared over and over (and over) in paranormal romance, Pamela Palmer brings an appealing take to the concept in her Feral Warriors series. Obsession Untamed is not one of those books that features huge innovations, but the author does put a few new spins on shapeshifting, ...

Cry Wolf

Cry Wolf is the first novel of the Alpha and Omega series, though the series starts with a short story that is included in the On the Prowl anthology. There isn’t much backstory found in this book, so I would recommend getting a hold of that short story to make things less confusing, as the story ...
