But when her best friend disappears and all signs point to the same mages who have been killing witches across the country, she's in over her head. There's only one place to turn for the kind of tracking help she needs…...more
This was a little more different from the other books.
I didn’t realize that you could hold off on the mating once you found your bond mate. In other books it was almost as though they have to have each other within an hour or they would just end up rutting anywhere. Yet Josh and Michelle had that connection but Josh was able to hold off even you protection so they wouldn’t be mated right away.
I thought that was really different but unique too. I think Michelle knew deep do ...more
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!
The cover matches the series’ new look!
This is the sixth book in the series! It is for adults only due to the steamy scenes. I recommend reading the series in order because the sum of the parts in more together than individually.
This book starts with action from the beginning. I re ...more

È una storia carina, ma niente di indimenticabile. Spero soltanto che in questa ri-edizione della serie di Cascadia Wolves, anche se sono stati saltati alcuni libri, si arrivi fino alla fine, perché la trama che si sta sviluppando attraverso la maggior parte dei romanzi, fino ad or ...more
This has been tagged as #5, #6, and even #7. It's Twice Bitten now but at one time is was supposedly Standoff, or was it Unconditional? No way to know for sure and my library is now hosed because of it.
I'm thinking of deleting all things Dane.
One of the good things about this book was all the cooperation between all the characters. I loved how everyone, no matter wolf or witch, welcomed Michelle with open arms, loved that they all were willing to teach her whatever ...more
Note: Original version published as Unconditional (Cascadia Wolves #6), but this has been updated.
This is a paranormal romance heavy on the explicit romance with elements of menage (sort of), so you need to know that going in. The relationship and lovemaking is a primary focus of the book throughout, overshadowing the other story several times, and yet ultimately, it’s all interwoven both into the characters’ lives and the culture of Others (mostly were ...more

I have mixed feeling on this book. A part of me loves it solely because Lauren Dane stamps her story's well with great storylines, fascinatingly entertaining characters and lots of twist and turns to keep you hooked. This story is no different in that aspect.
I love the whole second chance romance. For a cynic like me it give us hope that it can happen! (Even if it's just in a book).
Josh and Michelle are high school sweethearts and eachothers firsts which I though was pretty cute. I ...more

An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.
Twice Bitten isn't a bad book. It was kind of cool to see Josh get a mate. The problem with Twice Bitten is that it is a gateway book that really should be the first in a spin-off series instead of the last in the Cascadia series.
It isn't about Cascadia at all and in a lot of ways, it's not even really about wolf shifters. It's about ...more
This is about a witch cop whose best friend goes missing in some magical way so she enlists the help of the local werewolves to find her. Come to find out that the enforcer for the pack was her first love. From there the romance and detective work ensues. I had a much better experience with this story then her last but I unfortunately still only gave it 3 stars. I really liked the story line and I loved the close relationships between the witches ...more
So this was a different type of paranormal than I'm used to. The witches aren't really in contact with each oth ...more
I can’t get enough of the Cascadia Wolves! Shifters and humans are loving and living together as well as uniting to fight a common enemy. There are familiar, much loved characters, in this new story but there’s a new spin as well. Witches and mages are joining the mix and with the good comes the bad….

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Im a little confused on some parts, but loved that Josh found his high school sweetheart again. Michelle is a bad ass witch with the right amount of attitude and vulnerability to make her sassy and lovable.
While I've read all of the preceding books, there are some parts that give you the impression that you're missing a book ahead of this one. There's talk about the witch oven and some of their leaders that I don't recall reading before. There's also some ...more
