I love my Beauregard. He's the best. I can't get over how much I love this book. This might be my most re-read.

4th Reading on 1-25-15
Well, I read this book 4 times in a year and I have to say it never gets old. I still love Beauregard. I love this book so much I bought it in paperback, as well, just so it can sit on my shelf :) This 4th time around I read the paperback and it was weird sitting with an actual book and not my Kindle in my hand. HA! I hardly read them anymore
Big ‘ol dragon with a cute little bunny? Yeah, this was cute. But that’s about it.

There’s some fighting and discrimination happening among shifter kind, so the genius idea was to force shifters to marry outside of their own kind.


Sebastian the Dragon


Beauregard the Rabbit

Cute premise, big bag marries cute and tiny, but it could easily go from cute to silly. And it did. A lot.

Beauregard was an ornery little bunny so it was a lot of fun seeing him get into trouble and his dragon all rile

The concept of the 'forced matings', including all the consequences if people don't obey these totally arbitrary (as far as I can see even after the second book) rules was still a bit ridiculous.

What made this book more enjoyable than the first was the characters. Beauregard, the bunny, made me laugh out loud several times. Yes, he may have been a bit over the top, but I still liked him. With Sebastian the dragon being so different, it made for a very entertaining read. I loved the twist about t

I'm very surprised to say that I enjoyed this as much as I did! I mean, sure, this wasn't exactly highbrow lit-ra-chure, but sometimes you just need silly, and this was silly and cute. It had some tropes that I don't usually enjoy much, but they worked well for me here.

2.5 stars

I feel angry. That is what book-angst does to me.
I stayed up late to finish this and now have a headache.

I thought this would be another fluffy mpreg shifter read. My guilty pleasure. But instead I got a stupid misunderstanding.


This is what happens:

“You’ve all taken a toast with me. As such, you are now bound by the covenants we put before you.”
“Each of you has twenty-four hours to find and claim your mate,” Elder Lucas said. “If you fail to claim a mate in twenty-fou

This was a reread, after a conversation on the greatness of mpreg books with Jenni Lea and teaching Gina what mpreg actually is, I decided it needed to be celebrated by rereading this one.
It's still so cute, I mean a bubblegum chewing ( only watermelon please) toenail painting, cute green bunny purse wearing bunny shifter, Beauregard being unwittingly and not quite willingly mated to the prince of dragons.
So yes, great set-up.
Beauregard was honest to his mate from the onset : “However, I a
This was silly, so very ridiculously silly...and yet it made me smile throughout so three stars.

Chick with a dick to the extreme, confusing and crazy mpregnancy, weird woman-less world, every mills and boons trope thrown in to maximum effect, substantial editing errors, plus some shifting to top it off and you have the Pulitzer Prize equivalent of pulp with which to pass time on the train.

I actually believe I felt a few braincells dying while reading this:) Still, bunny tails and smoke brathing dragons aside, it was not bad, in fact I actually enjoyed it. Which makes me ashamed I must admit, but there you have it.
The premise of this series is rather disturbing. I find it hard to believe that the idea of forcibly making the paranormal community mate by putting something in their drinks and giving them 24h to find a mate is the idea of a mature, intelligent Council of Elders. Maybe because it sounds too close to rape aided by the use of date rape drugs?

Beauregard is saved from this fate by Sebastian. Thinking the best solution is to just mate each other; they do so and make their way to Sebastian’s castle,

Beauregard and Sebastian were so sweet together. They were perfect for each other. Don't want to give anything away even in the spoiler section so you have to read it:-)

Reviewed for Gayrotic Reviews.

I liked the story and the characters, but I had a big problem with the writing and editing. There were numerous repetitions in the text, both things we'd already been told before (sometimes twice), and words repetitions. In one place, for example, six paragraphs in a row start with "Sebastian". There were also a lot of typos that bothered me. I don't mind some, but I get annoyed when there are too many. The writing itself also bothered me. It was very "telling" with

Much much better than the first one in this series.
The bunny was great, although I sort of wished I had seen more of his antics and bubblegum fetish( he seemed to spend all his time In his room ) and I liked the Dragon! :)

The big misunderstanding had to happen, of course, but the groveling in this one was enough to make me happy! :)
And you could see how much the dragon wanted to make his bunny happy even before the big Mis.

Don't expect in depth life changing plot lines when it comes to this series. It's meant to be fun and I think that the authors have some crazy bet going on who can come up with the most crazy shifter combination!

Beauregard = super cute bunny shifter
(who had my favorite quote in the whole book)
“I can lick my own balls.”
Sebastian’s mouth dropped open. “You can what?”
“I’m a rabbit.” Beauregard smirked and wiggled his eyebrows.”

Sebestian = big sexy dragon shifter
(kind of an asshat at first)

This story is a hoot. Beauregard and Sebastian are seemly mismatched Dragon and Rabbit shifters that come together at the behest of the Council of Elders. Their meeting starts off with a bang and gets crazier from there. They are hilarious together, but when they arrive home to Sebastian's castle, it turns out there are some hurdles for them to get over before their HEA.

Both have large personalities and there are quite a few misunderstandings. Communication is not their strong suit. Luckily the

Sometime you need something with no emotional involvement, meaning no angst, no drama, something funny and cute, and so, even if I have tons of books I need to read, yesterday night I browsed the kindle ebooks and picked this one: a rabbit shifter mated with a dragon? Well, it had to be funny! And what promised, it delivered. But actually, considering I’m not new to a Stormy Glenn’s comedy, I have to say I noticed a huge improvement, while preserving her distinctive touch of cute bottom boys, th ...more

Wow... I actually liked this. That was unexpected. I'm really not a fan of shifters (but I just couldn't resist a bunny). Also not a huge fan of insta-matings. And I don't really like it when the characters hook up immediately. And yet... I liked this. Probably because Beauregard was so awesome. He was this adorable little white bunny shifter, but when he stood up for himself he was pretty fierce and totally wonderful.

There were lots of things that bothered me about this though. It needed bette

(Note added 5/28/2016): This might just be my go-to book whenever I'm feeling sad, or just need to laugh and enjoy the sweetest guy EVER. Beauregard is adorable, and I fell in love with him the first time I read this book over 3 years ago. By now I think I've reread this at least 10-15 times. Yes, my friends, I consider it to be that fabulous!
I loved it that Sebastian finally got his head out of his ass. If he hadn't, then he wouldn't have been good enough for my favorite bunny shifter.

Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)
I love Stormy Glenn, so I knew I was in for a treat! This was really good, a rabbit shifter and a dragon shifter. My heart broke for Beau at one point, and I don't think I would have ever forgave my mate for what Sebastian did.

One thing that is going to start to get annoying is if they all begin with the same counsel scene, which I suspect they do!

Let me start this review by admitting, that I am not much of a shifter girl. So to win me over, a shifter story needs strong world building, a good plot and characters with depth. Unfortunately, this story had neither.

The story takes place in a world, where there are mythical creatures of all kinds roaming the world among the humans. The shifters / different types of beings are fighting among themselves, so the elders device a plan to gain peace through forced interracial mating. They

If you're looking for a quick-fix gay fantasy/shifter romance, then this will suffice. However, don't expect a ground breaking, gut-wrenching story. Just expect smut and some happy lovin' between a rabbit and a dragon shifter.

I liked the twist on inter-species between the shifters. That was cute. I also liked their banter, differences in personalities, love scenes, the emotional drama, and the action. Those were the good parts, however, I didn't like the fantasy around the male pregnancy. It was
First: The good thing is that I came around to finish this book.
There are books in my collection (not many, but still) I wasn't able to do so.

But: That's it. The summary sounded promising and kinda sweet. So I was looking forward to the romantic story of a dragon and a bunny falling in love.

It started out ok, but then it turned into a mess. I had to laugh several times because I really didn't know why I was reading such an accumulation of nonsense.

The male pregnant rabbit topped it then for me,

Paranormal romance run amok!

What happens when the elders declare that all paranormals have to mate with the next 24 hours or face dire consequences?

Hilarity and heartbreak, that's what.

Beauregard Stratford is a rabbit shifter, and an odd one at that. Sebastian Drakus is the prince of the dragon clan. But inside that tough dragon hide is a gentle heart, and his impulsive rescue of Beauregard during the mating frenzy at the consequences of its own.

A white bunny shifter was taken as a mate by Sebastian, a dragon shifter prince. The elders of the paranormal have decided to help the races not to fight and spiked their drink to help them mate outside their species.

So this might not have been the best story ever writen BUT it had a forced maiting and Mpreg!!!!Öhm, jup I'm shallow like that and give it stars for hitting two of my favorite themes, rare enough encounter and two in one is just great.

I don't know why I like this series. It's so silly, yet fun. I guess I just like the fact that it brings a smile to my face to read these. I liked this one in which Beauregard, the bunny shifter, ends up with Sebastian, a dragon prince. The two meet when Sebastian is trying to leave the conference where everyone is being forced to choose a mate of a different species and Beauregard is trying to stave off the advances of a wolf or cougar shifter (can't recall) so he literally jumps into Sebastian ...more
A perfectly ridiculous series that I just can't seam to get enough of.

This one featured a mating between a dragon (Sebastian) and a rabbit (Beauregard).
The best part is the surprise twist between them! Nope. Not going to even add it as a spoiler because it makes the story soo much better not knowing.

My favorite line in the book:
“I can lick my own balls.”
Sebastian’s mouth dropped open. “You can what?”
“I’m a rabbit.” Beauregard smirked and wiggled his eyebrows.”

I really had fun reading this story, more than one time, actually, and telling others about it. The usual reaction is, “What!?” I have since read many of the Midnight Matings series but this remains my favorite, just for the sheer craziness of the plot and the delightful HEA at the end.

“However, I am still a rabbit. That being said, and considering we are now mated, you should know that rabbits are clichés. As the saying goes, we fuck like bunnies. Carrots are an aphrodisiac, and if you piss me off, I will leave pellets in your shoes.”
Beauregard shrieked when he was suddenly grabbed and swung around. Sebastian pressed him into the mattress and moved to kneel between his thighs. He hovered over the top of Beauregard, his arms resting on each side of Beauregard’s head. “I am a dragon, little bunny, and I am not a cliché in any form of the word. I’m big and bad and mean. I can break you in two without breaking a sweat. Piss me off and I’ll singe every bit of fur from your body.”
“I can lick my own balls.”
Sebastian’s mouth dropped open. “You can what?”
“I’m a rabbit.” Beauregard smirked and wiggled his eyebrows. “We’re very flexible.”
One of Sebastian’s eyebrows shot up. “Just how flexible are we talking here?”
