Complete Series Collection – hybrid feline shapeshifter romance


Sirena Petra wants one thing for Christmas—an orgasm. And sex toy expert Kenyon Fort has exactly what the lion shifter needs to find more than just her happy place.


All I want for Valentine’s Day is to get barbed by a feline shifter and act out a few of the naughty twin fantasies getting me hot and bothered.


Badass biker girl, accountant, lioness shifter—I’m all that and more. And this hybrid wolf thinks he can take me on? Bring it, you sexy beast! I’ve got this.


One night at a Paris sex club—no-strings, complications or inhibitions—just lots of fantasy sex. But in the morning I forgot the most important rule. Never run from a feline predator—they live for the chase.


Going home isn’t easy, but my new stepbrother has me aching for the kind of love my sisters have found. Can I really have it all?


My day from hell took a delightful turn when I woke up naked next to the most gorgeous man. But he’d bitten me and claimed I was his mate. Oh my!


Goes down as another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – a book of anthologies. Loved this collection right from the start. Short hot shifter reads that will have you purring with enjoyment throughout. Will definitely be checking out what else the author has written now.

Loved how alpha all the characters where when they either just thought or said out loud ‘mine’ when they saw their other halves. Nothing was ever going to keep them away. Whether their beginnings happened over a year, a month, a week or a day the connections where there right from the start and when fate decided to throw them into each others paths nothing was going to stop them from getting their HEAs with their true mates. The ones to give the females their all-important ‘Os’ they have been missing out on.

Merry Christmas Kitten

All Sirena wants for Christmas is an orgasm. But no matter who or what she tries though the all-illusive O is always just out of reach. So after breaking her latest sex toy she calls in a 911 call to Kenyon – designer of lots of fun toys. He has some bad news though, as the toy she just broke was the best he had, one he had made specifically for her. She is begging him to help her; she is hurting bad needing a release. She doesn’t even realise that what she is saying is turning him on big time.

Kenyon has fantasized about Sirena for a while over the past year of calls. She is begging him to cross a line he is all too willing to jump over. Sirena isn’t sure phone sex will get her there but is willing to try. Kenyon does paint a good picture but ends up leaving her behind, then annoying her further by hanging up. Now frustrated beyond compare she starts up her computer to look for something to help when the smell of something divine touches her senses – her mate. Drawn towards the smell she knows almost before she sees him step out of the shadows that it’s Kenyon and that he’s all cat.

Sirena has no interest in a tomcat though with a harem of female mates to deal with so does the only thing she can think of – run. She just doesn’t realise yet that Kenyon is different, a hybrid, and wont give up without a fight. When he catches her, it will be for her alone for keeps and he doesn’t share.

I loved how Kenyon called her kitten even before he knew she was a cat, it was almost like his subconscious knew and was just waiting for the rest of him to catch up.

My Valentine Lovers

Well who wouldn’t want to be the filling in an all male sandwich? The moment Lorelei gets a whiff of two find specimens she is instantly hit with the realisation that they are her mates – yes mates as in plural.

Now these two are hybrids too, so wont share what’s theirs, other than with each other that is. All Lorelei can think about is the amount of hands, fingers and other appendences that would be at her disposal. When these three get together fireworks will happen. But when another feline try’s to stir the pot saying they already marked her all she wants to do is run. Our boys wont give her up without getting her to see the truth first. She’s their Valentine girl, the one they want to have for keeps.

Loved the connection between them all and how the twins Carson and Camden would finish each other’s sentences. It was almost like they were like one person again the moment they found Lorelei. She was the connection that brought them back to being whole again.

My Kind of Lover

After both her half sisters f their true mates Haidee should have been wary as fate seems to want them all settled. When she goes to visit Lorelei to help out at Cam and Cars place while they are away on honeymoon she gets a shock in the form of Jase. Though to be fair it is his bike she sees first. One machine she would do almost anything for to get it between her legs. But when Jase gets close enough to tell her the bike is his he goes all alpha male saying ‘mine’ making Haidee almost go into panic mode shocking everyone present.

A secret she has kept needs to be spilled to explain her reaction and why she wanted to run. She’s not too sure what Jase is but knows she needs to stay away for her own peace of mind, even more so after a stolen kiss almost has her melting and begging to be taken. While having some freedom she goes for a run, on four legs not two, only to encounter a male lion that clearly wants to take her by force. Luckily the big bad wolf is there to save her. One she feels safe with even when she’s about to pass out. Lets hope she follows her feelings when she wakes up.

Back and forth banter of these two at the garage was great, definitely a hot match made in heaven.

Sex Me Up

Lindy has had enough of not having any fun or getting a good ending at the end of sex. Being feline means she can only get there with a male cat as they have a barb, the only thing that will hit a magic spot that would make her see stars. So she, along with her friend, travel all the way to Paris, spending a fortune to boot, so they can go to a very special club. One that would cater to every need their clients would have.

From the moment she gets there she catches the eye of Sebastian who requests she join him in a private booth, to which she accepts. She is a little floored though while leaning in to kiss his cheek hello when her cat wakes up thinking only one thing – mine! This makes her want to run which ends up with her twisting her ankle while trying to leave. Sebastian informs her he is a doctor and she almost melts when he touches her leg to check its ok. Heat shoots up and around her so fast that she no longer holds back when he kisses her, or when he then leads her to a more private room. Its not until they get started that he feels it too, that she is his. She begs him not to bite her yet, marking her as his, but also not to stop.

Can she really be with a mate she found at a sex club or did fate happen to send them there at the same time to meet. These women should know by now though that when a male finds his true mate nothing would keep them from each other for long.

Take Me Home

Chloe hasn’t been home since the day that changed her life forever. Also means she hasn’t seen her family, specifically her mother in five years. So when she gets out of a car with her new true mate you would think that would be her sole focus. It would have been if the other male that got out of the car wasn’t her true mate also, one who then gets introduced as her new stepbrother. Things get complicated when her little angel Cody grabs her leg wanting to know who everyone is. Chloe lets her mum and partner take Cody to see some kittens he had found, claiming as his own, all the while Declan hasn’t once taken his eyes off her. After first asking where the child’s father is, to which she replies dead (good riddance when you find out) he doesn’t want to hold back. He voices it to her that he knows she’s his and wastes no time in kissing her. After first succumbing to the kiss her thoughts catch up to her making her panic pushing him away saying no. Her acting like this then leads to her son shifting and attacking his leg.

Fearing for her son’s life she goes to leave saying she needs to get out before Declan sees them. Confusing her mother until she says they’re mates. Chloe knows that new mates kill the offspring of the old mates, especially male offspring. She gets caught off guard though when Declan shows that that’s the furthest thing from him mind.

Hybrids are different and he wants her to know that. The only way she will trust him is if he knows everything about her past. The past has a way of coming back to haunt though when her father comes to the party. Years of fear and anger come to a head and Chloe needs to see there is only one way to have her happy ending with Declan without fear for herself or her son.

Your One and Only

Harper is not having the best day. Crazy hair that won’t behave is one thing but a broken down car in the middle of nowhere when she is meant to be having an interview is another. No phone signal tops off the very crappy day she is having. So her only hope is to walk to try and find some help. After hours walking down a never ending street, feeling hot, dehydrated and sun burned she takes cover on the side of the road under a tree. She knows she is in trouble, and more than likely having a hallucination, when she sees a black lion come up to her. Her only thoughts and words being please don’t eat me. Which only seems to amuse said lion. As he doesn’t appear to be a threat, to the point of lying down with his head on her lap pretty much demanding she scratch behind his ears, she decides to tell him who she is and what a crazy day she has had. Thinking it cant get worse she soon passes out.

When she wakes up however she finds herself naked in a man’s bed, one she has no recollection of getting into. Shocked to discover that said man knows her name and is asking her to come back to bed she goes into question mode. Trying not to get distracted by the sex god in front of her, one that’s making her think screw it and jump back into that bed. After explaining everything, even showing her his lion, she passes out again. Not surprising as she’s human and had no idea shifters existed. Now Zander just needs her to see she is his one and only and all will be well. Nothing is ever that easy though but he will sure give it his all to get his woman.

Loved the family breakfast the next day when Harper walks into the kitchen. Both Zander and his brother might be old enough to know better but when their mother tells them off they still turn into children. Harper can feel the connection between them as well as Zander can so just needs to go with what her heart, and body, is telling her. For as soon as she does she will be in for one hell of a fun ride.
