Unless the war ends, they are forbidden to let their families know they are alive, but some rules are just meant to be broken, for the right reason, and Robbie has found that reason.

Just finished this anthology. Couldn't put it down. If you love shifter tales this one is definitely for you I love a good shifter romance, and a shifter romance anthology is even better. I also love comedy with my romance... Several times I lol'd on several of the stories. One of my favorite authors is included in this anthology Jennifer Kacey and this was her debut writing a shifter romance, great job and keeps you interested throughout.

Heart of the Wolf: The Devora by Desiree Holt
Lia Popescue is searching for her roots, her werewolf roots to be exact. After reading a book that has too many things right she knows it isn’t coincidence so she sets out to talk with the author about her sources. The author is a bit freaked at her stalker like persistence and sics her cop friend, Riley Morgan on her. Their connection is instant and electrifying. While a bit slow in the beginning the story gains ground and the pace pick up. Woven in

Received this book as an ARC in exchange for a review. Thanks to all the authors!!

Usually when I read an anthology/boxed set, I find only a few of the books that are really worth reading. This time I found that I absolutely LOVED every single book!! There were a couple that I was waiting/hoping for in series so that was a bonus.

I absolutely love this book and I highly recommend it to everyone that loves the paranormal.

I was given this ARC book for an honest review.
A series of hot, sexy, steamy sex and yummy men. Everything from human to shadows and in between. I really loved the storylines and found myself looking for a sequel or maybe a second book in the series of several of these stories. Not just unforgettable main characters but also unforgettable secondary characters. Each of these authors are a must read and definitely must be added to your author list.

A nice story that i can't say over excited me but rather made my time past quickly.
Hot steamy sex and a plot that was intresting enough to surely make me read more if it gets to be a series.
Fast paced with an intresting plot that leaves us with wanting more.

Romancing the Wolf is an anthology that features 10 stories by some fantastic authors. Of the ten authors included seven were authors that I never read before. Usually when you read an anthology there are some good and some not so much as far as content. I found only two of the ten stories that I was unable to complete. Overall this is a great collection of work. While I have read the entire book, I am only going to highlight a few of the stories.
