This is the start of a hawt werewolf series. In fact there was almost more sex than story, perhaps 50/50.

Sierra Hart inherits a lonely cabin in the woods from her Grandfather, just as she is at a crossroads in her life.

Luke, a werewolf is out running around and comes across her and immediately thinks mate.

The conflict comes from the local bigwig loggers who won't take no for an answer.

I'm sure you can guess the rest, particularly the insta-love.

Recommends it for: When you're in the mood for a hot time.
A paranormal romance that comes up a bit short on the story but serves up several hot helpings of sexual bliss. Although, I couldn't help but like the hero - with the name of Luke Spencer (GH anyone?) - who knows how to pleasure his woman. This isn't one to be read when you're alone; unless you'll be having a visit with "Bob".
Good short story but it's a little short on plot. It's straight in to the sex and the plot kinda kicks in here and there and is taken care of at the end. I liked it but it is a lot of sex (although they are hot sex scenes) with some story. :)

I'm not going to even bother to classify this one by genre and subgenre. It's that bad.

Short. Non-stop sex starting in chapter one. Sex with a complete stranger less than 5 minutes after meeting. Boring as hell sex. The tiniest thread of a plot that is buried under all the sex. Uggg.

There is PWP then there is just porn. Unless you're looking for one handed reading, skip this one. Then again, it wasn't very good sex, so you'd have to be particularly non-picky.

I skipped pages - skipped over sex s

Sierra Hart Quit Her Job As A Successful Software Engineer, And Ditched Her Boyfriend As They Were Both Boring. It Was A Good Thing Her Grandpa Left Her His Cabin, Five Thousand Acreage Of Pristine Forest, And A Small Trust To Pay The Taxes. Her Parents And Friend Thought She Was Crazy To Pack Up And Head To A Tiny Town In Maine To Sort Out Her Life And Maybe Write A Book. She Loved Drinking Her Coffee On Her Back Porch, But She Suddenly Locked Eyes On A Huge Silver Wolf That Sat Looking At Her. ...more

Short and to the point, erotically written paranormal story. I think Desiree did a great job with detail and enough information considering the length of it. But that is one of her many talents :)

Sierra inherited a cabin and hundreds of acres of land from her grandfather. Taking the opportunity offered to her, she quits her present job to move to the cabin and pursue writing. Very strong and not easily discouraged or intimidated, she stands her ground when some thugs from a neighboring lumber mi

Somewhat disappointed in that Desiree Holt is a very good writer and I felt this was certainly not evidence of her best efforts. Short, yes, but she is so good at telling a really good story in a short number of pages. Just seemed to be a matter of gratuitous sex and perhaps a matter of giving in to an overwhelming attraction in an inappropriate way. I know our culture is pretty lax about this stuff, but really -- even with Lust At First Sight, this is just a bit unreal. Told well, but the conte ...more

by Desiree Holt

HELLO! Smutville!

This was such a great short story, so much sex! But it didn’t matter, the plot was interesting enough to keep me intrigued!

Insta-love, at its best, I really enjoyed this tale in the first book in the Sentinels series.
Get ready for your kindle to heat up, seriously ill prescribed cold showers for all.

It was free AND by Desiree Holt, so I was happy all around. I wanted to like this more, but I did. I usually love her books, but this one just didn't do it for me for some reason. I don't know if it was because the Lumber Yard plot was flushed out enough, or because I felt like the whole ending was rushed. I'm not sure, but it definitely wasn't one of my favorites from her.

This is a very fun, very well written shifter story. My only complaint? I wish it were longer. But for a short story, it's full of action and love and hot steamy love scenes.

Vavavoom!! and the book is over!?! that was definitely a quickie! Hopefully other books in series are longer. Loved it non the less.

Really condensed. I have a hard time going from 0-60 in a short span. Just doesn't carry the same emotional investment.

A bit too much of the sexy and erotic for my taste, but I'll read the next in the series and give my judgement then.
