Shapeshifter Romance

B
Marked By Moonlight

Are you tired of vampires but love paranormal romance? Well then pick up Marked By Moonlight, the first in a new series about lycans (werewolves). It features a great heroine, a yummy hero, and several secondary characters whom I know we will see again since this is the first book in a new series ...

The Mane Event

The Mane Event features two novellas set in New York with shapeshifter heroes. Most books I’ve read featuring shapeshifter characters are very serious, dark and angsty, but this one is humorous. The plots are loosely constructed to non-existent, but the characters are funny and likable as can be. ...

B
Moon's Fury

C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp continue to build on the fantastic world of the Sazis in Moon’s Fury, the fifth book in this interesting series. Full of animal instincts, pack politics, magic, and a wide variety of shapeshifters, this novel stokes your imagination. These authors have created an excit ...

Tanner's Scheme

This is another installment in Lora Leigh's Breed series, and in my opinion, one of the better ones. Scheme Tallant's father Cyrus is responsible for the orders that sent countless Breeds to their deaths. Tanner Reynolds, a Bengal Tiger Breed, believes Scheme played a role in her father's action ...

Lure of the Wolf

When I picked up The Lure of the Wolf, I thought that I was in for another fun shapeshifter series. Unfortunately, I found cardboard, beefcake males who spurn clothing, and the women who have sex with them for two days straight and call it love. There was also a fantastic alternate reality world tha ...

Touch of Darkness

Touch of Darkness continues the story of the cursed shape-changing Varinski family (first encountered in Scent of Darkness). I thought the premise of the book was quite intriguing, but the execution left me vastly underwhelmed. I know that paranormals are hot right now, but not every author should ...

Hidden Moon

Other books from this author have been hits or misses for me, however, Hidden Moon read almost like a gothic novel and I couldn’t put it down. The sometimes mysterious and creepy atmosphere, along with the enigmatic hero, really added to the adventure. Claire Kennedy has returned ...

B+
My Sister is a Werewolf

Finally, an author has written an exceptional werewolf romance with an unyielding female as its lead. Kathy Love's My Sister is a Werewolf is loosely connected to her other series featuring three vampire brothers; this story is about their baby sister, an intelligent and loving woman who wants to be ...

C-
Scent of Darkness

Despite the hot sex and the paranormal theme, there is something about Scent of Darkness that seems a bit out of step. This one feels, to be honest, like an Harlequin Presents paranormal, if such a beast existed. You’ve got a virginal heroine who was actually raised in an orphanag ...

D+
New Moon

The frantic pace of this storyline and some poor choices by the heroine made it hard to enjoy this book, even though I liked the characters. I found myself dragging my feet every time I had to pick it up. This is clearly connected with other works by this author, although keeping up with past chara ...
