Dr. Adrian Giordano is comfortable in his life – glad for his friends and their recent mating, pleased with the business he operates and just glad overall for all he had.

The last thing he has on his agenda his finding a mate, but faith and his pheromones were against him when he is sent to escort Sheridan Montgomery to a pack meeting. From the moment he senses her he knows who she is – his life mate. But Adrian was not yet ready to be tied down and he was going to fight it as much as he can.

What a fun book this is. There’s just enough humor interspersed throughout combined with the action to make this a quick read where you’ll laugh out loud quite a bit. The rest of the time you’re just chuckling. Well, at least when you’re not cheering the hero on to kick the villain’s ass, that is.

Adrian is happy as can be in his single status; he doesn’t need the mating bliss his two best friends have recently found. Sheri doesn’t want a mate either but for very different reasons. She’s on the r

Oh, I loved this one more than the first! while the fact she's legally blind is slightly surprising, its even more surprising that she has a dog. A cat shifter, with a dog. made me go 'huh?' but, I like the dog. And, I love her red eyes!

3.5 stars: Best in the series...enjoyable shapeshifter romance

Entertaining shapeshifter romance with appealing characters. High level of suspense towards the end kept me on the edge of my seat. Good snarky dialogue made me laugh out loud several times. Like the other books, I would have liked the romantic relationship to be a little more developed. However, the plotline in this book was stronger than in previous books in the series.

Another great book in the Halle Puma's series! Sheri was a human who ended up attacked by her werewolf asshat boyfriend and was turned into a puma to save her life. She's been running and hiding from him ever since. She decides to join the Halle Puma's for some stability and what do ya know, she meets hunky puma dr. Adrian :) Adrian had decided he didn't want a mate, until he meets snow princess Sheri! We then see the pumas plan to defeat the aforementioned asshat ex. It was a good fight and a g ...more

Another fun, quick read about the Halle Pumas. This time Adrian, a doctor who's happy to keep out of the top leadership of his pride, finds a mate in a brand new member, Sheri. She has only the most limited vision and is being stalked by a deranged ex, a wolf gone rogue. Sheri completely changes Adrian's life. Not only does he become a mated puma, but her presence and the danger following her call forth his unknown powers.

I absolutely loved this novella or short story whatever it is classified as. I am definitely going to look for the rest of the books in this series and more from this author. Nonstop action and felt like it told an awesome story. I want more but I was definitely satisfied with what's here.

This book overlaps slightly with the previous one, it seems to be a regular occurence in the series.

This book follows Adrian and Sherri. Sherri is being stalked by a werewolf and comes to the pride seeking refuge. Another quick enjoyable story but with more plot and character development.
These stories just get better and better! My I predicted, Adrian's story was just cute and perfect and totally romantic! I think I am addicted to this series! Way to go Ms. Bell....! Next up is Belinda's story!! ;)

And so looking forward to Belle and Richards story....!!!!
These books really are a fun, quick read with hot sex and plenty of laughs :) I love the characters in this series and I enjoy the diversity of them all.

The Halle Pumas/Shifters series is like a big bag of gummy bears for me. I can sit around all day just eating them and they never get boring, because every one is a different flavor!

This story marks the point in the series where we really start to get some development about the world and society of the Pumas. When an outside threat in the form of Sherri's crazy ex-boyfriend appears on the scene, the entire community has to band together to not only defend against the threat, but to finally welco

So far this was my favorite of the Halle Pumas series. This series is really messing with my to-read books for this month. I only meant to read the first book in the series but I just can't stop myself. That's what I get for getting them all at once. The temptation is too much! While trying to figure out the reading order I found it and some free ebooks on Dana Marie Bell's website:

Dana Marie Belle has done it again. I love this series. I love how she doesn't always make the heroine and hero perfect. In this story she made the heroine slightly handicapped and I walked away with a little knowledge. This is book 3 so I highly recommend reading the first 2 books in the series and be prepared for a good time and funny read. Ms. Belle mixes serious with humor and gives us the blazing sex that I personally love in my romance books. Highly recommend :)

So first I have to say that I love this cover! The colors, the man, the MAN! Yum! But anyway, onto the actual book. This is the story of Adrian and Sheri. Sheri is a young woman who suffers from albinism, and evil psychotic wolf shifter ex, who has come to join the Halle pack in order to escape her past and find sanctuary. The night is formally represented to the pack she is picked up by sexy doctor Adrian, and hello mate!

While this one wasn't quite as funny, more on the series end due to the subject manner. I felt bad for Sheri, her past and her reason to be prideless, but at some point you have to take a chance and trust people. I was glad that she finally decided to do that with Max and his pride. I loved that the pride accepted her right away and took steps to protect her. I also liked that her disability wasn't anything other than another trait, like the color of a person's hair or eyes.

It wasn't the writing or the general world building but the repetion of the story yet again that put me off this installment. I have seen it before in the first two books and it's more of the same. Quiet but plucky woman is mated by alpha male who only she can tame with insane sex and quips. In this one she called the hero 'Dork' All. The . Time. It got really boring. I'm kinda glad it was a novella.

however, if oyu are a fan then it won't disappoint. There was just no joy in repetition for me th

This third instalment is just as good as the first and second books of the Halle Puma series. It has all the attributes that you come to expect from a Dana Marie Bell story. The males are sexy, caring and will do anything to protect their mates. The females are strong willed and comically funny. So much so, that it is not difficult to be enchanted by all the characters in Halle and be totally absorbed in what goes on.

My only quip with the series is that the stories are extremely short in compari

Ok so I'm starting to get a little cheesed off at this series... the whole to much rehash and now it's like an advertisement. Do company's pay to have their names placed in books???? I mean REALLY!

All this other crap is starting to interfere with my enjoyment of reading. I really don't care much about these characters in this book, but I do like the others so I read on.... It's just really disappointing when you can tell authors aren't into their own stories.

As with all the books of this series, it was a cute, sexy, short read that helped to quench my need for a book. Looking forward to reading the others.

I liked the main characters more but there were some holes left in the plot and it definitely needed to be longer.

This is probably the best out of the entire series.

I really liked how the Poncos pack was brought into the story due to the rogue wolf.

Adrian and Sheri as a couple are funny. Adrian is just as possessive of his mate as any other alpha male.
I will however say that I didn't care too much for the albino aspect of the main heroine. It didn't add any other depth to the story. She could've just been blind and it would have gone the same way.
