How to Train Your Highlander

What a wildly exciting read of an unlikely pair that work perfectly for each other. I love the premise of the storyline and though there are some times that I felt Mary Elizabeth was too naive and a little redundant it did not take away from how much I enjoyed this book.

Mary Elizabeth was truly a character that made me laugh with her antics while admiring her determination to stay true to herself and the life she wants without a husband. Though at times she seemed to have blinders on with regards to Harry she also saw parts of him that others did not see.

The portrayal of Harry intrigued me. He was humble, quiet, masculine, a conflict avoider, then all of a sudden he started to show a stronger side where he finally starts to fight for what he really wants. A refreshing change to the always have my way in charge dukes we typically read, Harry’s character was the perfect foil for Mary Elizabeth. I loved his character from page one.

The overall feel of this book is two people who do not fit in the cookie cutter world of society and are struggling to retain the essence of who they are while being forced to find their match and get married. It’s is a light entertaining read.

I give it 4 STARS and know you’ll enjoy this book.

My Guardian Gryphon

Well I can honestly say, “Wow a remarkable read that is unlike any other paranormal romance book I have read”. Seriously this was so interesting and exciting to read. Her plot was intricately woven and so full of description that I dissolved into the pages and felt like I was actually present as the characters moved through the book.

Gretchen’s character was an oxymoron. Mostly she seemed young and naive but then she would all of sudden seem very wise and mature for her age. But her brain and how she perceived things was at times childlike then all of sudden adult like. I know it sounds weird what I just described but the author finessed it so well that Gretchen is a believable character.

Alek was much more intense and deeper for the reader then Gretchen. Gretchen had no real idea of who or what he was but as a reader I caught on to his depth of character instantly. I liked that he struggled with his feelings and I loved that he jumped outside the box the world put him in to take a stand for what he felt was right for his personal well being.

This is filled with intrigue, unusual twists to the plot and yes it is filled with a love story but you will have to read the book to see how the author takes such an unlikely match and creates a love story worth reading.

I give it 5 STARS for being so different and interesting to read.

Shifter Date: Must Love Lions

Outstanding job on this first book by Indie author Alma Black. This is a light read and I know the readers will enjoy it. She incorporates humor, minor violence, prejudice, hate, and love. The dating concept which is always an intriguing event for anyone who is single added to the story.

Her characters are written with flair and drew me in to see how they would solve the dating situation between humans and shifters. Max has just the right amount of Alpha to make your heart flutter and his pursuit of Alexis is fun and enduring. Alexis’s negativity about his dating app is the perfect foil to Max’s relentless pursuit of her.

I give it 5 STARS for being so well done for a new author. Will you give her a try? I know I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

And just for fun check out her Shifter Date – Paranormal Dating App.
