Anthologies are always a mixed bag or good and bad for me and this one was no different. There are some really sweet, sexy, funny stories in here and it's well worth a read in between longer books.

Mother’s Day is the 8th, and sixteen Paranormal Romance/Suspense authors got together to write Shifters in the Spring, bringing together stories of babies, frisky shifters, and fertile surprises. Another eight got together to write What to Expect When You’re Expecting A Shifter. Things like, 5 Ways to Keep Your Baby Wolf Shifter from Biting People and Other Valuables (Prepare for extreme teething!), Top Ten Do’s and Don’ts for New Dragon Moms (Doing your research now will save you a world of hea ...more

A mixture of good and not so good. Made me miss my shifters. Need to look for an entire bear or wolf shifter book now!!!!

I generally rate collections like this pretty high because of the low cost of so many stories and the good usually outweighs the bad. Unfortunately for this collection, the opposite is true. There were a few decent stories, but there were too many bad ones. I’ve rated each individual story below.

Stripe for Love - 2 stars.
Lackluster is the best way to describe this story. There is a shocking lack of details about the story and the characters. There is absolutely no passion between the two MCs. A

“Shifters in the Spring” is a box set comprised of 16 paranormal romances by 16 AWESOME paranormal romance authors. What better way to enjoy the spring than to sit down to read about passionate tiger shifters, possessive bear shifters needing to save their mates, a leopard shifter wanting a second chance, and so much more. “There are secret babies, frisky shifters, and fertile surprises.” (quote from book) This is a box set that you will love to read especially if you love the paranormal and all ...more

This review is only for J.K. Harper Protector Wolf

I found this to be a real sweet story both Jace and Caitlin have their own emotional baggage that they're dealing with. I like the fact that Jace keep saying he wasn't ready for a mate and family but he took to the role so well. Overall this was a real good read. After reading this story I will be definitely checking out the other stories in this bundle I'm always looking forward to check out new authors.

This is only a partial review since this i

A good short and sweet enjoyable read. Didn't really go anywhere with a background story. Part of a series but not one I am familiar with.
Layla and Atlas have a one night hook up. Go their different ways. Layla tries to find him when she realises she is pregnant with no luck. Atlas knows he has lost his mate and is kicking himself for not knowing at the time. Nasty brother brings them together again for his own purposes.
An enjoyable read.

Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love (Ryzard) by Ariana Hawkes:

I received this for a honest review. I have so enjoyed this series. Don’t worry if yo have not read any of the other books because it can be read as a standalone.

Ryzard had made a mistake 2 years ago. One that changed him more then he really knew. This has caused him to avoid women and getting drunk. Now his clan want him to get on the dating app and find a mate. A mate is the last thing he wants but his frien

Shifters in the Spring boxed set
I really enjoy some babies thrown into my romance reads sometimes so this boxed set caught my eye. Boxed sets are always a great way to meet new authors and this is no exception. The first story by Anya Nowlan: Stripe for Love: You've seen and even read stories about shifter dating matches, so had Layla. When she went to work for one she had no idea just how far she'd have to go—how about another world! Yep. Her boss is called to a shifter planet where the King h

Can I just say, I couldn't wait for this book to come out in kindle format so I purchased the paperback. I so love this book. I love the authors. The authors I read on a daily had books I desperately needed because they are series I can't live without. I'm so glad Anya made another Shifter Grove story. Atlas was hot as all outdoors. The way he responded when the mate he let go came back into his life was explosive. He made sure she wasn't leaving ever again. Atta boy! Adriana left me with no cho ...more

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!
*** Received the ebook in exchange for an honest review


At this time, I have only read Protector Wolf by J.K. Harper which is a story in this set.

This set is not yet out, but I will be purchasing it at the end of the month to read all of the stories.

J.K. Harper has created a fabulous story in the Protector Wolf. This story is Jace and Caitlin’s story. You do not have to read this series in order to enjoy the story, but I’m sure

- Stripe for Love by Anya Nowlan
Layla meets Atlas on a stop to a new life in Seattle. Layla believes this is a one night stand, something she has never done but cannot stop herself with Atlas. She did not expect the surprise he left her nor the inability to find him again. Atlas regrets letting Layla go after that night and his searching for her come up empty.

A full ride of love, loss, and grief. Atlas is in Shifter Grove to start a new life and be away from his overbearing fam

Shelves: anthology
While the entire anthology could have done with a good final proof-read, it wasn't the worst editing I've read and there were even some sweet stories in there--hence the four stars. Many of the stories are by the same authors in the Shifters in the Snow anthology so I recognized many of the fic-verses and characters. A big difference is that I actually liked most of these stories to some degree. One nit I would like to pick with almost all of the stories so that I don't keep repeating myself wit ...more

Amazing Collection of complete stories, from some favorite authors and some new to me!!

1. Stripe for Love – Anya Nowlan - 5 stars
We meet Layla during a scorching one-night stand, then catch up with her 16 months later as she is trying to corral her shifter-son Adrian. Her sister Lily has been trying to find “Atlas”, but they really had nothing to go on. Tigers only get one chance to mate – and it is for life, and they can only have children with that mate –

Anthology about all kinds of shapeshifters. The theme? Secret baby. Not always a good one, but we'll see.

Anya Nowlan, Stripe for Love - 3 stars. Pretty good. One night stand with a man while on a road trip back home. Pregnancy ensues. Now, how to find him to let him know he's a father. Dad is a Siberian Tiger with family issues. I hate it when a shapeshifter shifts back fully dressed.

I really enjoyed this anthology. Someone sent it to me as a gift and, I'm embarrassed to say, it took me.... let's just say a long time to read it. However, once I started reading it a few days ago, I couldn't stop. Now, while I can't honestly say that I loved all of the stories, I can say that there were only two or three that weren't for me. The others were so good that I have marked the other in those series as TBR on my list. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the authors better. ...more

I like reading these types of books but this one was a disappointment and in actual fact I only enjoyed one of the stories and that was the first I gave up on the others trying to find another I would like more in this compilation and having spent £14.99 just for one story in many that lasted 30 pages at most I think this is overpriced and not worth it…

Have completed the reviews. Didn't review some. Given to me for an honest review. The contents list and the Sneak Peeks aren't in the same order. The contents pages are in the same order as the stories.

Stripe for Love by Anya Nowlan---Layla is thoroughly enjoying having sex with an almost stranger. She is not sure of his name. Maybe Atlas, but she knows he's a lumberjack or a miner or some other blue collar worker. Her sister found Atlas on a dating app, so Layla will visit him and give him a su

Sweethearts and babies, and the stories of the paths they take and trials they face. An excellent opportunity to read new authors. These are all excellent story tellers, with vivid details.

I'm a fan of the box sets and anthologies. Always find a lot of good stories, new authors for me and surprises. Also the price for the bunch is a bargain.
