The Wyvern King’s Mate

This book was originally released as “Dumb as a Roc”, part of the Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle World.

Razzy needs a man… or it’s end game.

Unable to find a mate, her dragon is asleep, and the curvy dragoness is running out of time. In desperation, she makes an appointment with the matchmaker, Geri Wilder. Perhaps Geri can work some of her magic on Razzy and find her a man that will literally save her life. But before she can speak to the matchmaker, Tall, blonde and handsome storms in, kisses her like there’s no tomorrow and carries her off on the wing to his mountain-top lair. She’s been kidnapped… by a wyvern of all things. Not just any wyvern, but Roc, the king they claim they don’t have…

Dragons and wyverns don’t get on. Like, ever. So why does she want to climb her sexy captor like a tree, and what will he do when he finds out she’s the dragon king’s sister?

Roc needs a mate to be king. He needs to be king to save his people from themselves. Because they’re dumb…

Which means he needs a woman, and for that, he needs to see the matchmaker. And she delivers. Barely out of the meeting and he has his arms wrapped around the tiniest, curviest, most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. One breath and he knows she’s his mate. One kiss and his heart belongs to her… forever. Instinct kicks in and he carries her off to his lair. Alone, away from everyone, she’ll have no option but to fall for him.

Just one problem, she’s the sister of his greatest enemy… and he wants her back

This was adorable! Think of it, both of them desperately need to find a mate for different reasons. We’re looking at Romeo and Juliet in the paranormal world. But what makes it enjoyable is the journey!

A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She’s addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

Lure of the Alpha: Three Book Collection – Volume 2

This unforgettable series continues with a second box set packed with hot alpha shifters, sizzling romance, and three exclusive bonus scenes!

In Lure of the Tiger, pro surfer Jody Monroe escapes a deadly killer threat thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger who arouses all her fears — and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody’s life isn’t the only thing on the line — her heart is, too.

In Love of the Dragon, Silas Llewellyn, the last of a once-mighty dragon clan, doesn’t have time for love — not with a ruthless enemy plotting to destroy everything he holds dear. When a priceless diamond — one of the legendary Spirit Stones — surfaces in New York, Silas knows the jewel is nothing but trouble…just like Cassandra, the plucky bartender who refuses to relinquish the gem.

In Lure of the Fox, Ella Kitt is forced to work and live in close quarters with smoking hot army hero, Jake McBride. Jake isn’t just the one-night stand who makes her scarred heart flutter and her fox’s tail wag — he’s also a human, totally off-limits to shifters of her kind.

This special edition box set includes three exclusive bonus scenes: Catch a Tiger (a steamy, spunky bonus epilogue to Lure of the Tiger), Hot on the Trail (a sizzling bonus epilogue to Love of the Dragon that starts and ends in a swanky Manhattan penthouse), and The Good Life (a heartwarming bonus epilogue to Lure of the Fox).

I’ve read the individual books and loved them. But I have to admit, I really enjoyed reading all of them plus the bonus scenes without the need to jump from book to book. When you are binge-reading, that really helps!

USA Today and Amazon bestselling author Anna Lowe loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting those inspire her fiction. On any given weekend, you might find her hiking in the mountains or hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Anna loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She likes a heroine who is independent, intelligent, and imperfect – a woman who’s doing just fine on her own. But give the heroine a good man – not to mention a chance to overcome her own inhibitions – and she’ll never turn down the chance for adventure, nor shy away from danger.

If you enjoy the paranormal romances of T.S. Joyce, Milly Taiden, or Terry Bolryder, you’ll love Anna Lowe’s Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series. If you’re a fan of Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, and other action-adventure stories, you shouldn’t miss Anna Lowe’s Serendipity Adventure Romance series!

Saved By Her Dragon: Dragon Guard Series #5

There Are No Coincidences… The Universe Does Not Make Mistakes… Fate Will Not Be Denied…

Devon’s heritage has given him a unique perspective of the world around him. His father was one of the fiercest Guardsmen in history and his mother, a very talented and highly respected Healer. At the age of his transformation he chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Guardsman still carrying the belief and wisdom of his mother’s clan in his heart. That, along with his complete trust in Destiny, may be all that saves the One the Universe made for him.

Orphaned as a child and raised by powerful Earth witches, Anya Sloane thought her life was pretty normal and relatively happy until the night she left the family farm and headed into town. Abducted and left for dead outside the hospital, she spent the better part of a month fighting her way out of a magically induced coma only to wake and find everything she’d ever known was little more than smoke and mirrors.

Anya is the light of his soul and the only woman able to tame the beast within. Devon has the strength and knowledge she will need in the coming days. Together, they just may be the key to saving Dragon kin. All they have to do is defeat the traitor…but that means they have to find him first.

This was so great! This couple is definitely one for the books. I enjoyed how events just seemed to lead together naturally. Well Done!

My Coronavirus Soundtrack

Folks you will definitely love this one!

The Wee Writing Lassie

This Coronavirus outbreak, and the subsequent madness of the whole god damn world, has left me feeling quite depressed. So to cheer myself up I began formulating a playlist of happy songs – as you do. But for a while that’s all it was, just a thing for myself, and it wasn’t until my mother asked if I was going to blog it, that a far more inventive idea came to me. Why just make a playlist that cheers me up about the coronavirus, when I could make an entire soundtrack for the bloody thing. So here before you, is the finished work – note, this is just a bit of fun and not to be taken as a serious account of the state of the world. We get enough of that from the news and (if you’re like me) Twitter, and while this outbreak is a serious thing, sometimes…
