Who loves Wild Wolves?


Loving the Wild Wolf
Wild Wolves of Montana Book 1

by Lynn Richards
a Paranormal, Romantic Erotica
with bbw romance, werewolves, shifters
from Wolf Publishing


Blurb:

 Roark Grayhawk’s past haunted the lone wolf. He’d become an enforcer to protect those weaker but had failed to protect his sister and she had paid the ultimate price.
Now, another woman needed his help. A woman Roark had tried desperately to ignore. He didn’t want the love of a mate. He didn’t deserve the love of a mate.

Curvy she-wolf Emma Jones has tried her whole life to make herself invisible to her powerful father—the alpha of the Blue Pine Pack. Now, he was forcing her into a marriage with a man who wasn’t her mate. Her mate was Roark Grayhawk, the wild wolf who protected the pack from danger.  Would he protect her?

Review by pearls

Both characters are swimming in angst, yet the writing style uses wit and sassiness to keep the storyline light and romantic. While obvious to both of them that they are mated, they both fight the call, feeling it can never be.  Fate, however, has other plans, constantly bringing them back into one another's sphere.  He is running from his past, she is running from her present-together they stand up against the pack Alpha, her father.  While she may be a wolf shifter, Emma is like many women who find society claiming she doesn't have the perfect body and social role.  Rather than conform, she creates her own path.  Roark is smoking hot, but caring around some disabling inner demons.  I was interested in how they supported one another to overcome these images.  How they had to love themselves before the true romance could be possible.  I am interested to see where the storyline moves next. 


Excerpt

 

“What the hell is wrong with you?”
Emma froze, her face still wearing traces of fear as the door crashed open and Roark burst inside, looking wild and fierce.

“I, umm—” Wow. How was she supposed to form a coherent sentence when her heart still raced and Roark stood before her, tall and beautiful—without a trace of clothing? She tried to keep her eyes north of the, umm, border, but failed miserably. Her earlier view of his naked form had been fantastic. But now…
Yummy, yum, yum, her wolf agreed, the animal smacking her lips in appreciation.

“You need to put some clothes on.” The words came out fast and breathless. A rush of fevered color stained her cheeks at being caught ogling him in the buff. Not that she should feel ashamed in any way. Being unclothed was just the way of the shifter.

But seeing Roark without his clothes wasn’t about shifting. It was about sex. Hot, wild, curl-your-toes and melt-the-snow kind of sex.
He cocked his head to the side as if she’d just spoken in tongues. “Why did you scream?”

“Spider.”

He cast a glance around and Emma could tell he didn’t believe her. The hairy little devil had scurried under the refrigerator. She tried to breathe normally, but it was proving almost impossible since he didn’t seem in any hurry to put on a pair of damn pants. Her pussy was already wet from her earlier ogling. Now it tingled and spasmed, wanted relief from the slow-building heat that had engulfed her from the day he’d stepped onto pack land.

Awareness swept through the room like a wildfire out of control. His gaze burned right through her. Caught like prey in the heat of his eyes, she found herself unable to look away. This time his shutters didn’t slam close. His wolf shown from his eyes. His hungry wolf.

She was so rattled that she stepped back at an awkward angle, putting too much weight on her still healing leg. It buckled beneath her and before she could stop herself, she was whimpering at the stab of pain.

Strong arms shot out, pulling her against the solid wall of his chest. “Are you okay?”

Hell no, she thought. She wanted to lean into him. To feel his arms wrap around her waist and hold her tight. She’d never felt as safe in her life as she did when Roark was around.

Deep within her, her wolf demanded more.

Mate.

The woman pushed the animal back down. She’d kept her wolf well hidden throughout the years, drawing on the animal’s strength only when necessary.

Like now. This man was male. Too male for a woman like her. He was big. Powerful. Made her feel so feminine. Made something deep inside her ache. She stepped carefully away from temptation, ignoring the big wolf completely. Which was difficult as hell since being this close caused her body to hum with need. It was also the last thing she wanted to do. She wanted to step closer, into his warmth. Against his cock.

“Let me see your leg.” The words were a command she wanted so badly to obey. Or any other he might throw her way, especially if it involved naked skin against naked skin.

Naughty wolf, she chided her animal. Naughty, naughty wolf.

“It’s fine.” She stuck her leg out and wiggled it to show him the wound was almost healed. There were still some rough looking marks, probably due to the rusty condition of the trap. The skin had closed and the mark would vanish the next time she shifted.

She gasped when he reached out and picked her up, sitting her on the countertop as if she weighed nothing at all. Mmm, she hummed in appreciation. Shifter strength. Even a big girl like herself could be manhandled by a shifter. She hadn’t bothered to put on any shoes, preferring to go barefoot whenever she could. He raised her injured leg to examine it and she soaked up even this small touch in hungry delight. She felt strangely light-headed and she could feel that pull toward this man deep inside.

“This still looks a little rough.” The calloused pads of his fingers ran over her skin causing goose bumps to shimmer over her body. Roark hadn’t wanted her in his cabin last night but he’d taken better care and shown more consideration of her than her father had in years. Damn it, she didn’t want to find more things about him to love.

Synopsis
At thirty years old Monica is about to discover real passion for the first time in her life. A chance encounter in a Tampa bar brings Victor into her life. Sexy as hell, secretive, and incredible in bed, Monica is overwhelmed in every way by this ex-military man who introduces her to all kinds of new and exciting experiences.

Monica is a school teacher who longs to experience the joy and thrill of passion. She has battled a past filled with trauma, and depression. Finally free of her fears and guilt, she begins to explore. That is when she meets Victor, a man who has his own demons to battle and secrets to keep. When he meets innocent Monica, he wants to experience all he can with her. She is innocent, yet willing; barely touched, but incredibly passionate. Victor's past has scarred him, and despite his feelings he keeps Monica at a distance. Why? Because he fears those secrets will destroy them.

But, Monica and Victor are soul mates. They have the same hot passions. Will they find their happiness with each other? You must read to find that out. But, they most assuredly do find pleasure.


Review by pearls
A book about two people facing down their demons, and falling in love along the way.  Monica has just recently dealt with her demons and is starting to live her life.  Out with her sister, she meets Victor, a gorgeously handsome Alpha male who rocks her socks.  And she rocks his, too.  However, Victor is still dealing with his demons.  He's upfront and tells her there are no promises but that doesn't stop their desire for one another.  As their relationship grows and he lets her inside, we see some of his demons and how a previous love has damaged him.  Can he move on and choose her over his demons or will he choose to continue to torture himself.  Can she be strong enough for both of them? 

I liked that Monica was already healed at the beginning of the book.  She had a life of her own outside their relationship that gave her strength and purpose beyond their love.  That allowed her to be strong when she needed to be and supportive when he needed it.  It allowed a her feelings to ring true.  She didn't need him in her life--she wanted him, which is very different.  Victor's character can be polarizing.  The author's ability to make us love his tortured soul first allows you the time to listen to  his backstory.  His determination to do the right thing and to be a good man have you rooting for his happiness. 

As her debut novel, there were a few editing errors I would have liked to see cleaned up, but the story line had a good flow that showed both characters' internal conflict and passion.  The decision to pace this out over  several months did the story justice as it felt more natural.  Even if they did fall in bed with lust at first sight.   Lots of hot steamy sex scenes, including a wild out of town weekend.  The novel ends on a HEA and did have me crying at parts.

Synopsis
Louisa Sears is ready to start over. Escaping her small town where prejudice, long memories, and old fashioned values haunt her, Louisa embarks on her dream of finding love, and a man who can warm up her bed at night. Pregnant at sixteen, divorced from an abusive husband at twenty, and raising a daughter alone, Louisa is now ready to live. She wants what every woman wants. A rock hard man, who knows how to love. Will Florida be the place where her dreams come true?

Jay Russell is battle scarred. A past filled with horrors from childhood, the war in Iraq, and the most devastating event of his life that occurred when he returned home, he is definitely not looking for love. When he first meets Louisa Sears, the bombshell with the fantastic body, he wants one thing, and one thing only, her body underneath him. The hot little ticket that walks by his t-shirt shop, meets all his requirements for a night of passion.

The scars in them run deep though, and they both have secrets. Can two people so deeply wounded by the past learn to trust each other enough to share those secrets? And if they do, will they be able to get past them and learn to hope again?

Synopsis
Learning to trust again is the hardest thing to do.

Ana Perrot is crazy. Crazy about sex, and pleasing her lovers. She is passionate and as fiery as her red hair. She eats men like air. She is also willing to submit to any man anywhere. But outside of the bedroom, Ana is an independent woman who lives her own life by her own rules. And, her biggest rule . . . she won’t do long term relationships. She refuses to fall in love . . . again.

Teddy O’Rourke is an easy going, laid back Tampa bartender at one of the most popular clubs in town. All about family and enjoying life including all the women that throw themselves at his feet, he has no problems finding willing partners. His football player body, his personality, his warm hazel eyes all ooze sex appeal. He is the perfect package in every way for a woman like Ana, well for any woman really. An ex-cop, his instincts tell him Ana is one hell of a woman, but she is wounded and scarred by the past. What are her secrets? What will make her trust him? Why is she so afraid to love?

A one night stand, that is full of surprises for Teddy, opens his eyes to new possibilities. A single man enjoying his freedom meets his match in the bedroom, and elsewhere. He sees a future with Ana, a counselor for troubled youth. But could she be persuaded to fall . . . and to trust again?

About APHRODITE'S CHARMS

From New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner) -- Aphrodite's Charms contains all four full-length novels in the bestselling Protector (Superhero) series of paranormal romances.

This bundle contains the full text of Aphrodite's Kiss, Aphrodite's Passion, Aphrodite's Secret, Aphrodite's Flame (each book is available for purchase individually as well as in this bundle)

Aphrodite's Kiss:

Zoe Smith might look like your average, ordinary elementary school librarian, but she’s about as far from normal as a girl can get. Because Zoe is descended from a line of superheroes … and as her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she has to decide if she’s going to embrace her heritage (including the X-ray vision and her extraordinary senses) or submit herself for mortalization and be that average, ordinary girl.

Considering how lousy she’s done so far on all the Council-imposed tests, chucking the whole superhero thing might be very best thing … especially when she realizes that sexy, private investigator George Bailey Taylor is convinced that Zoe is one-hundred percent “the girl next-door”.

An ex-cop turned PI, George Bailey Taylor’s had one hell of a life being bounced around from foster home to foster home. All he wants now is a normal life with a normal wife in a normal neighborhood. And when he meets Zoe Smith, he’s certain she’s the typical American girl.

Except she does have an overprotective brother who seems able to appear and disappear at will. And a creepy cousin who’s always lurking about. And why does everyone in her family pretend to actually talk to the pet ferret? With her super powers, Zoe can do just about anything … except make Taylor fall in love with her.

For that, they’re both going to need a different kind of magic …

Aphrodite's Passion:

Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy—or maybe they just want the belt.

Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?

Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.
Or is there?

Aphrodite's Secret:

Shapeshifter Jason Murphy spent six years captive to the most notorious Outcast in the Protector world—Hieronymous Black, who also happens to be Jason’s father. Worse than his is the distrust that his absence put between him and the love of his life, Lane.

Lane knows only that the father of her child disappeared just moments after she told him she was pregnant, and she’s spent the last few years struggling as a single mom. Now Jason’s determined to win back his family.

But to do that, he’s going to have to face his father one last time. And he’s going to have to tell Lane the truth—and hope that this time she’ll see him as a hero.

Aphrodite's Flame:

Mordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there—Hieronymous Black—and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now—and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.

Isole Frost believes Mordichai when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys.

He may be the man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong.And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice—or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!
