Oh, why did it have to end? Even though this novel had the perfect ending, I don’t want to let it go. I couldn’t put it down for a second and now I can’t wait for the release of the 3rd book in this brilliant series!

Winters is off and running right from page one with this one. She mixes brilliantly explicit descriptions with down to earth characters and a solid storyline to create an adventure that you won’t soon forget. Her descriptions are vividly visual. The brilliant metaphors and similes

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Aura Montgarten is a Nymph, who can shift and seduce whenever it suits her. Aura travels around moving from place to place. Aura travels hiding from love. She has a curse on her head. If she falls in love or if a man falls in love with her then he will die. Aura travels to Montana looking for her sister Natalie who she has not heard from in several days. Aura knows

I was given a free copy of this book in return for my honest review. Goodreads group: Lovers of paranormal.

I must say I was very apprehensive about continuing this series because of the previous book. But I must say that I was pleasantly surprised.

Once again this book presented a great concept. I loved the intrigue of the story line and the suspense did not disappoint. Winters wrote a well paced mystery with just enough originality to keep me turning pages.

I should start by saying this book is different from what I normally read. I had never entered into a world of nymphs and the like, but once I did enter, I was so engrossed with the people and the plot.

Pacing of the book was great! It was a good mix of the mystery and crime along with romance that ran together at a good pace. I was never bored of a scene and I never wished for parts of the book to hurry up and be done with. If anything, I wished certain scenes were longer! During certain parts

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from LoP.

This is the 2nd book in Danica Winters Nymph series. Instead of staying in Greece, this took place in Montana with the Nymphs shifting into horses vs snakes (as was the 1st one). I like the fact that we were in a different setting and the Nymphs shifted into a different animal. This kept the series fresh. In Montana Mustangs, Aura is the main character and she is searching for her sister. In the process, she winds up in the middle of

The cover I totally love because it all works really well, but I am partial to animals :) so the beautiful horse and scenery attracts me to the book.

The author’s writing style made is easy to get sucked right into the story. She had me from the first chapter. The nymphs are mythology based, but Danica has her own twists that I really like. I don’t want to read the same thing over

I’ve decided that I love Nymphs and their stories. This book was even better than the first one! I was completely entrapped in Aura and Dane’s story. I literally could not put this book down. I was up until the sun was almost up because I had to know the conclusion of this thrilling and sexy mystery.

This book puts together different aspects that I love in books. I adore police mysteries and I love paranormal romance. So what’s better than a Paranormal police mystery with romantic intentions?!

I do love a good murder mystery, when added to that is mythological creatures and a love story what is there not to like. Montana Mustangs is a fantasy romance with suspense weaved in, Aura's hundreds of years of existence seem to vane in comparison to finally opening up and finding love with a mortal man.

There were plenty of secrets and that created nice chemistry between Aura and Dane, but the mystery of the washed a shore body had it's own major chuck in the book, which I liked but had not

From the very first sentence I was drawn into this book and could barely put it down until the end. This book has romance, mystery and even shape shifters, After you read this book you may find yourself checking out the back of the necks of your friends. You just never know who might be one.
Danica draws great pictures of her characters. some you will like and will want to get to know better. Some you won't like so much but will probably to be able to relate them to someone you know in your life.

MONTANA MUSTANGS, by author Danica Winters, is a fantastic paranormal romance with a satisfying murder mystery weaved in. Filled with a mix of shifters, nymphs, cowboys, and cops, the story revolves around a heroine and hero with plenty of secrets and tragedy in their pasts. Neither is willing or able to open up to the other in the beginning, but as the story moves forward it becomes clear they must learn to trust each other and their growing feelings if there’s any chance of solving the ...more

admit by the title of the book, I was kinda put off. It sounded like a typical romance novel. Wow, totally wrong! I personally have never read a book about a shapeshifting Nymph who has a really long life span. Right there, I was intrigued and wanted to know where this story could take me. Aura is looking for her sister who went missing, Enter Dane the cop who is going to help her or just follow her around if necessary! I love the chemistry between these two. I love that Aura can push her ...more

Montana mustangs is book 2 in the Nymph series. I liked this book and found it refreshingly different from other books, the plot was well written from start to finish.
The female lead Aura, is a nymph. I love the fact that Nymphs have the ability to seduce people to do what they want. She is caring and stands up for what she believes. She's a great character.

I liked Montana Musings more than the first book, The Nymph's Labyrinth. I enjoy the nymph aspect, it's something I haven't read before and I'm a sucker for animals and Aura, the heroine, was able to connect with the animals, communicate with them. There was some serious sexual tension between Aura and Dane, their connection felt right and the murders added mystery and suspense to the story line. Worth a read.

Another well written adventure with an exciting plot I couldn't tear my eyes away from. The characters were well developed with an interesting story that pulled them together. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Seems like most people liked this book better than the first, but I just couldn't get through it. I should disclose that I got this book for free. I didn't love the first book, but I figured I should keep reading these free books that I had piling up instead of buying more. I read about a quarter of it before I just gave up on it. I just didn't care what happened to the characters and when that happens I'm out.

I simply adore paranormals but I do want a book with a great plot. This new to me series is a romantic suspense all wrapped up with mythological shifters and it's a truly unique concept.
Aura is a nymph and has been around for a very long time . She's not just some lusty temptress though as she can shift into a Mustang but there's a price for her abilities . If a human male and a nymph fall in love the curse Aura carries will see the man dying from a horribly tragic death. Suddenly having the

Montana Mustangs is Book 2 in the Nymph series by Danica Winters.

In Montana Mustangs we are back in the United States (as opposed to Greece, which is where Book 1 takes place) so the entire theme shifts (as it were) to a western theme. Our nymphs in Book 2 are just as the title suggests ~ Mustangs (horse-shifters).

Aura Montgarten is a shifter from Yuma, AZ in Montana trying to locate her missing sister, Natalie. While doing some investigating, Aura comes across a female hand and promptly phones

As the second book in the the Nymph series the action now takes place back in the States, the wilds of Montana to be precise. There's a sense of freedom and peace here until the bodies of young women start turning up. A crime scene is actually our first glimpse of the story's protagonists and you can sense their mutual hardheadedness and sexual tension from the moment their eyes meet. From that intense beginning their journey to a HEA is one ripe with danger. It's going to take a lot of trust in ...more

I just love getting to be introduced to new authors to me and discovering more yummy reads. This is the first time reading this author and picked it because it was a shifter romance but of a little different style of shifter. Dane is a investigating officer and did not realize that when a body part was discovered it would open up a whole can of worms so to speak he might of not have wanted. Aura happened to be to discover it and call it in but on her way she wants to be. Looking for her sister ...more

I had read 'The Nymph's Labyrinth' which was set on a Greek island. MONTANA MUSTANGS tells how the nymph shapeshifters who once ran free in horse form have been fighting encroachment by domestic livestock. Unlike their Greek sisters who profit from tourism, they find their animal friends are being poisoned or captured.

A lawman who is called to the lakeshore scene of a grisly find meets a blonde lady called Aura who reported finding a severed female hand. Deputy Dane Burke learns that Aura has

Montana Mustangs pulled me in right from the start with mystery and intrigue ( even if it put me off my breakfast there for a bit because there were some eeewww gross you out things happening) and kept me attached to my nook to the very last page.

I have been pleasantly surprised by this series!! Book one caught my interest right away when I realized it's biased on Greek myth, with a twist! The second novel brings us across the oceans, back to the US. IT IS EVERYTHING A SECOND NOVEL IN A SERIES SHOULD BE!!
Not only does this book add to "shape shifting" concept from the first book, it also lays out the mystery and problems that the series needs to continue on and keep the reader guessing. This novel made me think

Five stars for Danica Winters' sexy, suspenseful, and absolutely enthralling Nymph series

I hate to admit that I became lost in a series, but I did. I really did. I received a copy from the publisher of Danica Winters' Winter Swans, the third book in her Nymph series, and just had a feeling that I should read the first two books as well. Ms. Winters was gracious and kind enough to share the first two books with me and then I became lost as I began to read…

I loved this book right from the start. I loved the Montana setting and the style of the writing and the plot was intruiging right from the get go. The characters were all fully formed with interesting personalities from the good guys to the bad guys.

There's a murder mystery and a paranormal element. I found the paranormal element the shape shifting nymphs to be unique. I've never seen anything like this before even though I read lots of paranormal romance. I'm

The giant horses of mythology, now tamed by humankind, live out their lives on ranches of Western US. Wild creatures, rounded up by the BLM, and beaten into submission, perhaps all they need is a trainer who cares, or a leader with power. But Aura’s sister has disappeared, and there are reasons Aura believes her sister might have been both trainer and leader.

Author Danica Winters slides the intriguing possibility of shape-shifting nymphs very gently into her tale, first creating characters the

This is a really interesting series. I love the whole new twist on Greek Mythology! Both books hold a great story and more than a simple romance. There is suspense and intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat! They were wonderfully paced and had delightful stories.

The characters were engaging and very loveable! I really enjoyed Aura and

I'll start by saying that I got this from the author to review. I was slightly skeptical just based on the cover because I thought it looked like your typical Harlequin-esque romance novel. I then read the synopsis on amazon and realized that I was wrong. Yes, this IS a romance novel and it is a real life setting instead of a fantasy world, but this is not a typical romance novel. The lead female character is a nymph who can shapeshift and seduce men, but the a curse exists that will kill any ...more
