This is a quick little read. Roan is a very sexy six-foot-nine wall of werewolf. When he encounters his mortal mate, he is completely engulfed in the mating thrall and has to have her, NOW! Since Ansley is not a werewolf, he is unsure how to proceed in wooing his tiny mate. After a failed attempt at dating, and complete brush off by Ansley, he shows up at Ansley’s work, throws her over his shoulder and all but beats his chest on the way out as the mating dance begins.

Recommends it for: fans of steamy wolf-shifter romance

Roan's Fall is a very light, very short novella that you may enjoy if you like steamy wolf-shifter romance. Personally, I am getting a little tired of the check-your-brains-at-the-door, not-so-well-written stories like this that are quickly cranked out to turn a buck.

If you are looking for better wolf-shifter lit, I recommend Teri Spear's Heart of the Wolf series, beginning with book 1, Heart of the Wolf.

Another good wolf-shifter series is Law of the Lycans by Nicky Charles. Books in this serie
Roxie wants to get her hair styled, but needing to take one of her protectors with her, she has Roan accompany her. Werewolf and Roan can't stand the smell that surrounds the place. When Roan finds himself in the chair awaiting a trim, he knows the minute he gets close to Ansley that she is his mate.

Despite his gruff and growling behavior, Ansley can't stop staring at Roan, nor put her foot in her mouth when it comes to talking to him. Ansley is confused by her reaction, but even more confused

I previously reviewed an older title from this author, Icy Temptations, and it was a delight to discover Roan’s Fall far surpassed her older work. Though part of a series, this story ties in to another series and is best read in order, this helps clear up some of the confusion that took place while reading Roan’s Fall. There are quite a handful of characters that I found myself struggling to keep up with.

But other than that, this title made me laugh, gasp, and giggle like the erotic fan girl tha

This series is just light fluffy stories without much real danger or even plot. Werewolf finds mate, mates with her before telling her he’s a werewolf. Girl acts surprised until they have sex, then she calmly accepts. There’s a brief moment of danger and she decides right away to become a wolf. The end.

I did feel a connection between these two, though they both were nitwits.

Roxy has the best part of all. And the other ‘brothers are idiots. How then can be ‘trained protector’s’ and have the s

Your panties won't stay dry! This book has a guarantee of this. It can contains spoilers!

But let's start at the beginning. Roan is a werewolf, one of Roxie's, the foretold one's protectors. He goes to a hair salon during his duty to protect Roxie, where he finds his mate the instant he smells Roxie,s hairdresser's scent. The problem is, she's human.

Ansley work as a haridresser in a little salon when Roxie, her old client comes with a gorgeous man following her. The man is tall, and extremely hot

This book was recommended to me because I was participating in a name challenge and I couldn't find any books that I wanted to read that started with the letter R. Long story short, I read it but was a little embarrassed having to admit I read it not to mention I didn't really care for the book too much. It was a fast read with a lot of sex in it, it reminded me very much of a diluted Black Dagger Brotherhood book only with werewolves and without a whole lot of explanation about the pack. I unde ...more

It started out okay. It's a very standard plotline, but I was still into it. Roan, a gorgeous werewolf who serves as a bodyguard for Roxie (some prophecied person), meets his intended mate when he accompanies Roxie to the hair salon. Ansley is a hairdresser and is immediately attracted to Roan. From there, it's the usual--lots of over-the-top sexual attraction and graphic sex scenes that lack dialogue. I was disappointed. I've read way worse, but it wasn't very interesting and neither Roan nor A ...more
Honestly, I'm kinda iffy on these books. Of the two I've read, I haven't been able to get behind how quickly things happen and how accommodating the humans are at suddenly being tied to a supernatural. Generally speaking, I dig love at first sight/fated mates type books but... I'm just not feeling this one. Roan's brothers/brothers in arms were the most entertaining part of this book, in my opinion, and they weren't quite enough to carry it for me.

H....O....T... HOT!!!!!!! sexy and short this set of words was all about the fun semigly carefree but forever lasting sexyness... lolzies...

kay... their are a bunch of male brothers carying swords but you only get to really meet two of them, one that is a pain in the tush and the other that is the male lead.

This is a sweet forever story about a werewolf that finds his mate after walking into a common hair salon and then proceeds to claim her forever (without her permission of course)

I read all of the Wulf Den books and decided to try the Roxie's Protectors series and I have to say that I love them.

Roan didn't want to go to the beauty salon with Roxie but he went for her protection. Having to be around all the girly stuff and the strong smells was going to make him sick. That is until he gets a smell of Ansley's scent. She is his mate and he has to find a way to tell her.

As we all know it seems that all the males can't wait to tell their women before they mate them. Makes fo

It was ok. It started off pretty good then it went down from there. I would say 3/4 of the book was nothing but sex(I skipped through most of it) it would of been nice if it had more of Roan and Ansley developing a relationship.
It seem like Ansley excepted Roan being a werewolf way to fast. Also it kinda ended abruptly, I was reading then it was the the end. I will try the next one and hope it's better.

This is about Roan and Ansley. He is a werewolf and she is a human or immortal as humans are called. It is about how they meet and how Roan has a hard time telling Ansley that he is "different".

This story consists plenty of sex scenes, poor world building, uninteresting characters and unsophisticating writing.

Thank God this is a short story.

Just gonna do a quick review as it's late and I'm dead tired...

This was an alright book for an intro to the series... It's an extension of the Wulf's Den series with the same characters... Pretty quick read... Read it in about an hour uninterrupted... Probably will read the rest of them...
As a PWP it might work, but it has ambitions to be more. And in that it fails for me, since the characters did nothing for me - and there were way too many side characters (apparently from another series) for such a short story. The worldbuilding, the characterization, the almost plot - all meh.

This one is about Ansley & Roan. This is the first in this series but basically is just a continuation from the Wulf Den books, just with the focus being on Roxie's protector's. Not much action, and barely an issue with Miles.
