"You're a wolf."
"Yeah, baby."
"But, I thought those were only on TV and books."
"Yeah, I read books about shifters all the time. Wolves, panthers, tigers, lions... and more."

Well, me too! But I have never met a werewolf (as far as I know of course) hahaha

I am in such a summer mood...
A great, short shifter story

I've been in the shifter story mood and this hit the spot. Short, sexy and sweet.

-no cheating
-no pushing away
-no om drama
-ow drama- the female alpha of the pack tries to challenge the heroine. The hero had never slept with her in the past
-very short but cute epilogue
I loved the first half.. it was on its way to be a solid 4 star read (at least!) for me. Then it all fell apart at the end. A little disappointed.

I just want an amazing shifter romance! Is that too much to ask?!
Sissy's Romance Book Review
'The Alpha's Arrangement' by Ryan Michele is the story of Carter and Izzy.
This book is about 115 it a nice quick read!
Izzy has just moved to the mountains of Montana after being in the City most of her life. Izzy is trying to fit in when she goes to the local grocery store to stock her new house. The people there look at her and know she is a new person and Izzy tries to smile and be friendly. But when she hits the meat department there are two huge men there that when they sense her
Worst week of my book life! One trash after another.
I'm not looking for Shakespeare here, but please, is it really too much to ask for "half a decent book"!
I mean who agrees to stay with an unknown person, not even a man, but any unknown person in a brand new town for 30 days under VERY questionable circumstances?
I mean Hunan trafficking, organ harvesting, drug lord, serial killer....I can go on with the list!!!!!
And her ability to make decisions like find out the lawyer and realtors just vanish

The Alpha’s Arrangement is part of the Howl’s Romance series. This can be read as a standalone. If you love paranormal romance than this is the book for you!
Alpha’s Arrangement is Izzy and Carter’s story. Izzy decides she needs a change from the big city living and moves to a small town. Of course, the first person she runs into is Carter. Carter is the alpha of his clan and is used to getting what he wants. There is an instant connection and attraction. Izzy does not understand what

t has been a long time since I’ve read a Paranormal novel and most pnr that I read dealt with Vampires. I never read a novel about a wolf shifter!

I flipping loved Carter and his Alpha ways! and yes I'm using the Alpha term in the true sense. Carter is the Alpha of his pack. He's the top dog and he's found his mate in a human named Izzy...only she doesn't know it yet!

Izzy moves to the mountains in Montana to not only get a change of scenery but also a new life. She didn't expect to run in

Quite ridiculous, really. She's damn near sucking his fingers into her mouth the first time they meet. Pretty much all of the dude's behavior would have been filed under "Crossing the Line". The bare bones of the plot would have worked as a full-length novel, though. ...more

Heartwarming and sexy…

This was such a great paranormal read filled with humour and super hot shapeshifters…Carter is the Alpha of his pack and he is nothing if not persistent when he sets his sights on Izzy…..boy is he determined….of course there is also the small matter of him being a magical being and her complete ignorance of the fact but this just makes the story all the more enjoyable…

Izzy recounts the story from her perspective which provides a personal narrative of her gradual awakening t

Ok. I tried to finish this book, honestly I really did, but I just couldn't. I think it's fair to say I'm not looking for reality (as I'm reading a shifter romance novel) but this was just ridiculous....

SPOILERS: how ANY person could move to a new town and randomly let themselves live with some strange dude for 30 days was just beyond me... like is he taking me to a human trafficking ring??? Is he going to harvest my organs??? Is he keeping me there as a slave of some sorts???? I just could NEV
I have to say that I am a big fan of Ryan Michele's books so I love reading everything and anything by her so I am glad to come across her latest release.

This was a light fun quick read filled with passion,humor and hotness.We loved it !

Carter realizes that Izzy is his mate after meeting her in the grocery store and sets out to make her his immediately .

I loved both these characters they were fun love-able,had a sense of humor and they had tons of chemistry between them.I loved how Carter went a

I'm such a huge fan of Ryan Michele and I love this series it's written by some of my favorite authors and authors that I'm getting to know on my to be read list . I adored everything about Izzy and Carters relationship they have such a strong connection and when it reaches it boiling point it became really intense .

I love reading about shifters. And this storyline was pretty good. It's insta and quick. I would loved more bitch drama, but I can live with just a short moment of it. Lol

Our hero Carter is sneaky and possessive wolf. I liked that about him. And I know 'safe read' lovers will adore him.

With Izzy is a little different. I was a little frustrated with her. I'm not a fan of h, who losses her all marbles and just drools on sight of H. I like for h to have some wit about her, to have coherent thoughts

Review by: Jennifer
(4 stars)

Izzy, needing a new start moves to a small town, tired of the big city. She has already dealt with finding a place and signed all the paperwork. What she doesn't realize is that the house also comes with Carter. Carter knows at first sniff that Izzy is his mate, now he just has to get her used to the idea, even if that means bending the rules a bit. Will Izzy be willing to give Carter a chance when she finds out that he is a bit different? Or will she run for the hill

An intriguing sexy paranormal novella that will satisfy your Shifter fix! Who wouldn't want a Hot Possessive Alpha to connive his way into your life and make you fall deeply in love with him. That is exactly what Carter does to Izzy. Their friendship to lovers comes quick and it is Sensual and HOT! Their romance has some bumps one being she is human and Carter is a Wolf Shifter (an Alpha Wolf Shifer) but they are Mates and meant to be. Owen (Carter's friend) had me laughing when his antics and h ...more

5 star

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, steam, wolf shifter, and heartbreak.

This is Izzy and Carter’s story. When Izzy moved to the mountains she was looking for a fresh start. What she got was a super-hot man that is always around. Carter knew just when his mate walked into town. He will stop at nothing to have her. Only issues is she knows nothing about shifters and he does not know if or when she finds out if she will be okay with it and him. He is totally alpha and no
Busy Bumble Bee Book Reviews
I have really enjoyed other novella's from the Howls Romance line. So I was really looking forward to this book, especially since I have enjoyed Mrs. Michele's other shifter books. But this one just kind of fell flat for me.

I felt like we didn't get to know the character's at all in this book. This book was all in Izzy's POV, so yes we got to know her a little bit better. But at the same time I felt like we didn't get to know her at all.

I didn't think we got to know Carter at all. He didn't eve

A great shifter romance! I liked how the main characters came to learn about and trust each other. It was a little slow going at first, but soon revved up to 100%! Definitely something for those fans of sexiness, shifter romances, and especially wolves.

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

I sat down and was able to read this story in one day, hell only a few minutes really. I can honestly say this is one of the shortest stories I have ever read. Yes I want more and crave more. Am I hoping for more yes. Ryan did such an amazing job with this story that she needs to write more of these Alpha men. Must Read

So so

I fell for the writing style of this author when I read her MC books. Not so much a fan of the less than snarky and gritty shifter book. This one started out with something different than the typical but it lost it after the mated and finished much too rushed. This just wasn't up to my expectations for this author. Having said that, it wasn't a bad read and some may enjoy it .

2.5. There is nothing that makes this stand out.
Not much happens in this story. The alpha tries to persuade the h to be his mate and once he does she is challenged for the position by an idiot woman from the pack. Just OK.

A new place away from the city is all that Izzy needed. No hustle and bustle of the big city. No car horns honking, no people jabbering on and off all day as they walk to along the tightly packed streets. Just the peace and calm of the wind whispering through the trees and the birds announcing themselves to the world. Spear, Montana is the new start that Izzy wanted. Her work as a Software Designer can be done anywhere that she can access the internet, so the country is perfect. But there is so ...more

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Izzy and Carter. Izzy has decided to get out of the city and has found the perfect home in Spear. It is out in the mountains with plenty of fresh air, nature sounds, and a sense of peace she hasn't found in years. So when she heads to town she thinks nothing off it especially when most of the people notice her when she walks into the local grocery store. She takes special notice tho

The Alpha’s Arrangement
By: Ryan Michele

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review by Kristie K

A fun and tantalizing tale of fate, love, shifters, and a touch of contractual manipulation…

What can I say about The Alpha’s Arrangement? This was a quick, enchanting, and sexy read with a powerful alpha that refuses to take no for an answer, and ALWAYS gets what he wants. The characters were fun and flirty, as well as sexy and strong. Izzy has found her perfect home, in a perfect place, and can’t ask for anything more when she r

Note, this book ends at 70%. The pace is quick because the book is only about 100 pages. Part of the Howls romance series, with different authors participating, I look forward to reading the other books in the series too.

This is the first Shifter/Paranormal book by Ryan Michele that i've picked up before. I do like a good shifter romance here and there and am picky about the ones I choose. I can honestly say that I am glad that I picked this one to read. I am now eager to check out the others that she has as well. The story wasn't completely outlandish, besides the werewolves but it is a shifter book, which I loved. The progression of these two characters relationship is one that had me completely hooked.

The Alpha's Arrangement is the 15th book in the Howls Romance series. This is the first book I've read in the series and I enjoyed it immensely. I've read all the books by Ryan Michele, and will continue to since I enjoy her style of writing. I'd rate this book at 4.5 stars. This book is a short, fast read, with a good amount of hot and steamy parts.
