This bad boy won't play by the rules.
Daredevil Carly Hawthorne, youngest of the Hawthorne wolf shifter clan, doesn't believe in true love. At least, that's what she thinks until bad boy Luke Brandstetter comes along, refusing to play by the rules.

Luke is a man with more wrongs than rights in his past, and his scarred shifter soul yearns to turn over a new leaf. Somehow, he

Well HAWT Dame. Ms. Lowe hasn’t lost her touch. We are at book six in The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch and it's just as phenomenal and breathtaking as all the others.

We have Carly the youngest of the Hawthorne’s and Luke a bad boy who is ready to turn over a new leaf.

These two complemented each other perfectly. Carly is the wild child and only does one night stands, no attachments. She has some deep issues that as a women, child, and mother I can understand. Some of use, like Carly, don’t want to

Luke is ready to turn a new leaf, do good and return to his childhood home, when he comes across a tempting thing who wants him bad for one more night.
How could he know what this would mean for him?
Carly knows that men disappoint, why would this gorgeous hunk be any different?
Little does she know that hes about to turn her life around..
Smutty fluff, shifters and action in a great, fastpaced read.
Love this series!

As a fan of the Twin Moon series, this final book did not disappoint. Once again Anna has this amazing ability to describe her settings in a way that's almost melodic. Her words flow like poetry and I find it entirely enchanting. As a native to Arizona I can tell you she truly understands the magic of the desert and the beauty that lies within. What I loved most was Luke's ability and willingness to allow Carly to be the alpha she is and take a step back and let her lead. There is strength in gi ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I freely leave this honest review so others will know how good it is. Carly is a daredevil always searching. Heading to the ranch to visit her siblings she encounters Luke. He has bad boy written all over him. Their fling becomes more when they end up in the same place. This story has returning characters from prior stories leaving it rich in emotion. You do not have to read the previous books but you would get a more fulfilling read. ...more

Come follow Carly and Luke in their journeys to find home. Maybe you need to do all the "wrongs" in your life so you can end up in the place where you were always meant to be. Great conclusion to the Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. It’s been a while since we had a full-length Twin Moon Ranch story and this one is just as heartfelt, close, sweet, romantic, spicy, and family oriented as they all are. There are no lows in the story. In between the high-action parts, you glimpses into the characters minds and backgrounds, which just sets you up for the climax of this story. I still can’t stand Audrey and now, I kinda hope for the Old Alpha--the Hawthorne patriarch--to ...more

so truly amazing.. this series has made me so happy and ilove that carly gets her hea... she is amazing and strong and wonderful. i loved it and im glad i got to review it
The last book in this particular series and it doesn't disappoint. The romance centres around the youngest Hawthorne sibling Carly and her mate Luke.

As we know from the previous books, Carly doesn't believe in fated mates and is a kind of 'love em and leave em' type of gal when it comes to scratching an itch but her chance meeting with Luke doesn't go strictly to plan. They meet face to face at a rest stop but Luke had noticed her when she overtook him on the highway on her motorcycle. Luke was

Carly is the youngest of the Hawthornes, but unlike her siblings, she hasn't settled down. In fact, she's determined to continue to live her life as she pleases, right on the edge. And right now, she's headed from her mother's pack in California to her father's pack in Arizona on her Triumph motorcycle. She doesn't notice the old blue Ford pickup she passes as she cuts in and out of traffic, eluding the patrolman behind her. But the driver and his wolf notice her.

Love this series! I've enjoyed every Anna Lowe book that I've read! I love that her books have a bit of danger to them, and I always love a great shifter story. In Desert Roots, wild child Carly is returning to Twin Moon Ranch for a visit. Along the way, she meets Luke. The passion between these two is hot! Carly doesn't want to fall in love, so she has one-night stands. Too bad this one-night stand is going to the same place as she is. Luke has a bad past, but he's trying to change his ways. He ...more

Not my favourite in this series but still an enjoyable read.
Carly has been a major factor in this series as the half-sister that floats in and out of Twin Moon ranch. This is her story but sorry, I did not like Carly for the majority of this story.
Carly disappointed me, I was not impressed with Carly and her selfish, self-centred attitude. She cannot see she is on a self-destructive path to prove she is not like her mother or father. But she really is like her father, hurting people by not givin

The story of Carly and Luke starts out as a pickup at a bar, but the chemistry between the two is more than either of them is ready for. Carly has man issues. Her mother married a very dominant alpha and was not strong enough to stand up to him. Carly does not want to end up like her mother moving from one unsuitable mate to another. Luke has had a rough life. Forced from his pack at fourteen, he has drifted and done some things that make him cringe to think about.
Luke is headed back to his orig

I just love this series by Anna Lowe and I hate to see it come to an end but I will be seeing these characters in her spin off series THE BLUE MOON SALOON. We finally hear Carly's story, the daredevil sister who belongs to 2 packs. She meets Luke in a bar as he's on his way to Twin Moon Ranch to start making amends for things that happened years ago. He's turning over a new leaf and the Ranch is his first stop. Kyle is not ready to forgive and as Luke tries to prove his sincerity to the pack, he ...more

This is the best book!! Anna Lowe says it wraps up the Twin Moon series, but I certainly hope not! This book centers on Luke and Carly but most of the Twin Moon ranch people are also in the book. Luke knows Carly is his mate from the first time he sees her but Carly is scared and fights her feelings. It is so good! Highly recommend this book and the entire Twin Moon series!

This is one of my favourite series. I really liked this final book in the series in which the youngest of the siblings finds her mate. Carly has been reluctant to find a mate and it takes a special shifter to change her mind.

Luke has lived a hard life. He had to leave his pack as a teen and ended up in a gang. He made some bad decisions and now wants to go back to the pack and help them rebuild.

Carly and Luke are an explosive couple. I love their first meeting in the bar. Carly is confident and

Bad girl and boy gone good

Carly and Luke met in a bar, had one night and went their separate ways. Little did they know they would meet again. Soul mates licking their wounds. Loved it! Perfect end to series.

Great ending to this series. Carly went from annoying girl to someone I could appreciate. I wish it had more romance, but it seems wolves can smell their mates.

USA Today and Amazon best-selling author Anna Lowe loves putting the "hero" back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She likes a heroine who is independent, intelligent, and imperfect — a woman who's doing just fine on her own. But give the heroine a good man (not to mention a chance to overcome her own inhibitions) and she'll never turn down the chance for adventure, no ...more
