The Mane Event (Pride #1)
How come all the good-looking ones are insane?
That's what runs through NYPD c
Her first series "Magnus Pack" get me hooked to her books, and I decided to read her "Pride" series after I finish Magnus Pack.Even the world setting in Pride and Magnus Pack series are the same, no need to read Magnus Pack first :)
The Mane Event have 2 stories, Christmas Pride and Shaw's Tail. Here the story :
The story is about Mason "Mace" Llewellyn, who just end his military career at NAVY. He met his childhood friend, Desiree "Dez" MacDermot,...more
Wow, I still can't believe how good this book was, not paranormal romance but more erotica, but still I really liked it because the paranormal aspect was incredibly well developed. This story had an amazing plot and a great enemy, which I never realized who it was until the end. We get to know some amazing characters with great personalities, so be ready because once you read the first book you WILL need to read the rest.
In this story we get to read about Desiree MacDermot and Mace...more
Christmas Pride ★★★
This is the story of Mace Llewellyn & Dez MacDermot, two best friends separated while teenagers & pulled together when Dez investigates a murder in the Llewellyn Pride. Dez has always been THE ONE for Mace...now he just needs to convince her of it.
I enjoyed Mace & Dez but they're not my favorite couple. It was a good intro to the Pride background since I read Laurenston's Pack serie...more
Great book!! Loved the characters, the plots and the humor in both books.
I really look forward to the other books in the series :))))
One of the hottest new voices in paranormal romance, Shelly Laurenston knows how to do it all, delivering tales that are wickedly funny, action-packed, and scorch-your-fingers sexy. With The Mane Event, she proves just how delicious love can be once you unleash your inner beast...
How come all the good-looking ones are insane? That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. It isn't just the w...more
I loved Mace and Dez. Unlike in most romances...it w...more
Shaw's Tail was a much much much better read for me. The humor was a...more
This was a pretty good story. I’ve read some stories by Shelly Laurenston but never tried this series before. I like it so far.
Dez grew up in the Bronx and because a police detective. She’s tough and doesn’t take any crap and loves her job. Unfortunately she has issues with men not being able to accept her or her job. She tends to avoid dating and when she meets back up with Mace again (after not seeing each other since they were 14 years old) she tries to keep her distance...more
In a stroke of genius, the publisher chose Johanna Parker (changing her name to Charlotte Kane) to narrate Shelly Laurenston's Pride series. Shelly Laurenston writes funny, bawdy, "suspend reality and just enjoy" books. They need a skilled narrator to pull them off.
Then in a stroke of sheer stupidity, they mechanically sped up the entire narration! Did they think putting Ms Parker on fast forward would fool dedicated audiobook listeners...more
die Löwen sind los in New York
Zwei aufregende Geschichte in einem Band:
Diesmal geht es attraktive Löwen und geheimnisvolle Wölfe:
Als seine Jugendliebe Dez wieder in sein Leben tritt, ist sie das beste Weihnachtsgeschenk, das Mace je bekommen hat.
Doch Dez ist inzwischen erwachsen geworden, ein knallharter NYPD- Cop, und weiß genau, was sie will. eine Beziehung gehört nicht dazu!
Doch auf den Löwenwandler Mace hat sie die gleiche Wirkung wie Katzenminze, und so...more
He has always loved her ..they met at school ... but he is rich and she is from the wrong side of town... Oh yeah!!! He is also not quite human..Tricky cat
Dez is a cop ... she loves her job ...so much so, that it was the reason her first marriage failed... She thinks Mace just wants to have the 'one who got away'
She learns there is a lot more to her city than she ever realised and Mace is here to stay ... Loved the fun these two get up to...
Especially when she...more
NYPD cop Desiree “Dez” MacDermot knows she’s changed a lot since she palled around with her childhood buddy, Mace. But it’s fair to say that Mace has changed even more. It isn’t just those too sexy gold eyes, or the six-four, built-like-a-Navy Seal body. It’s something in the way he sniffs her neck and purrs, making her entire body tingle…
Mace Llewellyn is back in New York city, after 14 years in the navy, and he is ready to start his new life. With his best friend Smitty (who is...more
The first story, Christmas Pride, features lion shifter Mace Llewellyn and human NYPD detective Desiree MacDermot or Dez for short. Best friends as kids, they haven’t seen each other in over twenty years. Some things have changed; Mace is no longer a fourteen-year old short, odd kid and Dez is now a NYPD detective.
Some things haven’t changed, though. Dez is still unaware of Mace...more
Mace Llewellyn, a lion shapshifter, has just come back to his Pride after being in the Navy. He plans to break things off with his Pride and go off on his own - male lion shifters in the Pride are expected to have sex with all the women and get as many of them pregnant as possible, but Mace is unusual in that he would like to settle down with one woman. Specifically, he'd like to settle down with Dez, an Irish-Puerto Rican woman he was friends with as a kid and who he hasn't se...more
Mit ihrer neuen Serie läuft G. A. Aiken zur Höchstform auf. Goldäugige Löwenwandler, heißblütige Wolfsrudel und gerissene Hyänenclans: Diese Gestalt wandler tummeln sich auf New Yorks Straßen – und in New Yorks Betten. Denn auch ein Löwe braucht eine Gefährtin. Und wenn er sich diese einmal ausgesucht hat, lässt er nichts unversucht, sie mit seinem Schnurren zu betören. Wenn es sich dann noch um eine Wölfin handelt, sind Spannungen vorprogrammiert, denn diese beiden Arten sind buchstä...more
I decided that this author was awesome and immediately set out to acquire all the books in what I was thinking what would become my favorite new...more
This book has two short stories which are similar. The guy is a lion shifter. He smells a woman and knows she is his mate for life. He is obsessed with being with her, touching her, and having sex. The woman doesn’t want a relationship, but she is unable to resist him sexually. The second story was a little better than the first.
Mace and Dez...more
Mane Event is one of those guilty pleasure kind of books but somehow Shelly Laurenston manages the erotic content while telling two connected stories that are romantic and funny. This is no neat feat considering that the couples spend most of their time getting hot and sweaty and some people may be uncomfortable with the sensuality level and language here. But where a full length novel might have gotten repetitious, these short st...more
Mace I loved him and his sense of humor, "baby, I can't wait that lone. Let's go bang this out in my sister's office. You know. To take the edge off." Mace he doesn't like other men touching his gal, "I'm sensing that know on your forehead was not enough of a clue to keep your grubby dog paws off my woman." Sometimes a man just doesn't want to get interrupted during the good stuff, "throat clearing. He kept hearing someone clearing their throat. Who the eff would dare try to get h...more
I have three reasons for this.
1. Not enough world-building. Too many things just seemed to be thrown in when necessary, and their importance were not developed, as to how or why they were important. For example, when Brendon marks Ronnie. How, exactly, does that happen? Is it something magical? Why wasn't this discussed earlier as a possibility...more
I've also read the three Magnus pack novels by this author and they are much the same style.
I think perhaps if you're in between books or maybe waiting for something else to come out and you...more
