More, please!

This was my first Erzabet book, but this will not be my last!

While half of this book wasn't my cup of tea, the book as a whole was very well written and the story flowed smoothly. I absolutely loved it. Erzabet did an excellent job of writing the love that existed among the characters, and that's what has me wanting to reed more!

Oh, and if you like smoking hot books, you might just love this one too!

That, and some hilarious comments spoken here and there by the characters gave me a

This novella is a perfect read to warm you on a cold night. It's set around a dating agency for paranormal beings. We get a mixture of shifters, and Megan is a hedgehog! I find it amusing and intriguing when they are smaller animals. All the main characthers are likeable and introduced seperately. The storyline keeps you hooked and the sex scenes may not be the longest but they were enjoyable, there is a hot MM scene and a MFM, there is lots of talk of spankings too.

I will be looking for more bo

This is a quick story by Erzabet Bishop that has only one fault that I could find, It was too short! Seriously though, I loved this story, and If I hadn’t been a fan before, I am doubly so know.
Natalie is a hedgehog shifter, (new one on me) and she refers to herself as a hedgie. She’s curvy and has a mother who makes her feel terrible about herself. She decides she’s going to try the new Shifting Hearts Dating agency

Jonathan and Lucas, owners of Venture, a BDSM club for shifters and humans alike

I admit that I'm one of those readers who gets a kick at all the new types of shifter stories there are anymore. When I saw "hedgehogs" I just had to read this and I'm really glad that I did! This story has some lighthearted moments with Natalie's thoughts; she's a hedgehog shifter who has a tendency to pop into the little prickly animal when she's stressed. When she searches for her mate, she finds a BDSM club and its 2 oh so sexy owners, mates looking for their 3rd.

This was a fun fast paced story. The only problem I had with this book was I wish it was longer. Seriously though, I really enjoyed it. This was my first hedgehog shifter, and she refers to herself as a hedgie. How adorable is that. Throw in a hot gorgeous cat, and a bad boy biker bear, and your definitely in for sexy time. My only issue was, that the kinky aspect was minimal, mostly spoken of, not actually practiced. I was expecting them to participate. Besides that a enjoyable and entertaining ...more

A really good shifter romance. 💞🐻🦔🐆💞

Not only is this a really good romance but it's a rather unique grouping of shifters. Jonathan is a bear shifter and the Dom of the group, Lucas is a cat shifter and Natalie is a hedgehog shifter. Yup... a hedgie between a bear and a cat. And yet, they blend wonderfully right from the start with instant-love streaking from one to the other. I really enjoyed the heat between Jonathan and Lucas is as white-hot as it is between the three of them and each variable

Natalie is a hedgehog shifter who is sick of her mother's controlling demeaning ways. She goes to the Shifting Hearts Dating Service to find her own man not one her mother picks. They have her think outside the box. Jonathon is a bear shifter and Lucas is a cat shifter. They own Ventures, a BDSM club. They are mates looking for their third when into their club walks Natalie. These three are wonderful together. Loved this book and have found new author to read.

Hedging Her Bets

Jonathan the owner of Ventures a BDSM club had found his male mate Lucas 3 years ago when his tattoo shop opened across the road and they have been searching for their triad.
So with the idea of hosting the Shifter Hearts Dating event at his club in hopes of finding her even after a Blackmail situation it could only go one of two ways.
But when an unexpected twist occurs what will happen?

This novella was nothing spectacular but it had potential mam right - datingare agency, shifters BDSM club and mm mates for our f- so Good premises but execution was not so so Good...

Hedgies, and bears, and cats, oh my!

This was my first hedgie shifter book...have to say, Natalie is adorable. Throw in a gorgeous cat, and a bad boy biker bear, you get a very steamy, sexy mix of fun. My only minor tweak , was that the kinky aspect is minimal, mostly spoken of, not actually practiced...would have loved more. Altogether a really fun read.

First off, I love Natalie and poor her at the same time. She just wants to find her mate and her mother will not stop interfering . This is my first paranormal story with a hedgie. But I really liked it and I loved that it wasn't typical shifter story. Another hit for me!

I bought this book back in November of 2016 and this is the first time I have read it and I am a little upset with myself for not doing so before. This was a story I enjoyed reading.

I really enjoyed the start of this book, there was a great build up and a strong foundation and introduction to each of the three characters. I especially loved Natalie, I like it when shifters are slightly different animals to the 'norm' and it was both adorable and amusing to have a prickly little hedgehog who couldn't quite control her shifting. It just felt like the last part was rather rushed - we were over three quarters of the way through the book before all three characters were even in ...more

Kit, cub and hedgie love, what a wonderful thing

I have never read a shifter book with a mixture of different animals involved but it works. Jonathan, bear shifter, Lucas, cat shifter and Natalie, hedgehog shifter.

I really liked this book a lot but it seemed rushed and the plot, although complete, seemed really rushed. I would have loved to have learned more about the three main characters both together and separately. And about what happened to Natalie's Dad and about what happened in the weeks

When you can't find the man you're looking for then just find the Shifting Hearts dating agency. Awesome and inspiring storytelling at its best. The author has a way of drawing you into her books and not letting you go.
