Illegal shifter fight clubs, ancient native magic, and evil corporations oh my. HARVEST MOON is filled with tons of fun ideas and riveting plot. I really enjoyed the idea of an evil shifter corporation with typical evil corporate plans to rule over all shifters and kill anyone in the way.

TAMING HER WOLF is a pretty decent shifter paranormal romance with an interesting take on the werewolf mythology where werewolves have three aspects: human, wolf, and beast. These three aspects seem to be in a constant battle for balance and power.
There isn’t much to say about CANADIAN WOLF, because there isn’t much going on in this book. It’s almost a shame since the characters and writing aren’t too bad. It was simply a chore to get through: nothing happened until at least half way through, and even then it felt fabricated and extraneous.
BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF is a charming paranormal romance filled with much romantic and family angst. It is an even paced story and I enjoyed the werewolf mythos set up in this story. One issue I did have was the fact that Isabelle’s dad seems to be intent on her marrying someone from her pack regardless of the fact that the mythos sets up that if you don’t find your mate you will die after 300 years.
FROZEN IN AMBER is part legal drama, and part were-cougar coming of age story, with a little bit of family craziness and gene-splicing mixed in. But if you add in very few moments of levity and what felt like an artificially drawn-out plot, and you have an interesting book that misses the mark by just a bit. And then there is the end, which I had to read twice to make sure I actually got.
The first book of the SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series was fun, but WOLF TROUBLE, featuring two werewolves instead of a werewolf man with a human female, was even better.
The Dallas SWAT has been hand-picked from different law enforcement and military backgrounds, but they all have something in common: they all survived something a normal person wouldn’t, and started sprouting teeth and fur soon afterward. Werewolves in this world are triggered by a life-threatening injury in a person with the right genetic disposition.
I love paranormal romance books that don’t take themselves too seriously. I always find that it’s easier to get through a book when I am laughing, and BABY’S GOT BITE had plenty of humour and ridiculous situations in it while still managing to have believable characters and truly emotional scenes.
SILVER IN THE BLOOD was a book I was very much looking forward to reading. The beautiful cover and author alone (I loved DRAGON SLIPPERS) was enough to intrigue me, and I didn’t even bother reading the description. So going in a bit blind, I was very happy when SILVER IN THE BLOOD lived up to my expectations.
I tend to like my books quite spicy – and I used to think the more sex the better. Well, I’ve been proven wrong, and in a werewolf novel to boot. Although the sex scenes in BRIDGED BY LOVE were well written, I really could have done with way less of them. By the end of the book, I was skipping pages of erections and orgasms – more story, please!
PURE BLOODED follows the formula that Carlson has nailed for the Jessica McClain series. With high action, evil villains around every corner, and Jessica saving the day, PURE BLOODED doesn’t do much differently than previous books in the series.
