I don’t date—especially when it comes to humans. She rolls in like a bulldozer, smashing all my rules to bits. She’s human, and she’s my mate.

She’s got scrapbooks. She’s got dreams. She’s got an obnoxious tendency to micromanage everything I do. It’s her bed and breakfast and her renovation project, but I don’t take orders.

I can’t stop watching her. The wolf in me wants to

I know that I’m going to get an amazing story even before I swipe open my Kindle when that first story in a new series is by Keira Blackwood and Liza Street – one writing duo that has never let me down yet (and I’m not expecting them to… ever). This time around we’re combining Keira’s Alphas & Alchemy with Liza’s Fated Mates in the small town of Forbidden, Kentucky for Claimed in Forbidden, and not only are you going to get a great sexy story but you’ll be laughing your.

Fun-filled shifter romance. I agree with Declan, ‘slugs’ can definitely keep well away from me too. ‘Forbidden’ seems to be an intriguing town and this family is certainly a mixed bag. I laughed at the characters’ antics and cringed at the slug trails. Daphne is determined to make it on her own and with this great shifter family to support her, I see that developed more in future books. I loved this story and look forward to reading more in this series as they come.

Claimed in forbidden

Daphne bought the asylum but didn’t know that was what it was! When she got to her new home it wasn’t as described. But Declan and his brothers and sister got the job helping her fix the place up for it to be a bed and breakfast that she wanted. Had a slug problem but that got taken care of and they fell in love and they were mates! Can’t wait for the next book!

It’s okay

The storyline was nice but I think it needed something more. There is the MC who wants to do things for herself, then she finds out she is in a town of supernatural and that something sluggish is in her basement.... the brothers are funny and it nice how their story will be also done but I just found it ok... a good filler type of book. :)

She wanted her independence and moved away from her family and ends up moving to a supernatural town. She wanted to own a B & B what she did not know was it used to be an asylum and has its own "monster"
Declan was helping her renovate the place and get rid of the slugs (eww). This is a cute story.

What a fun story this was. I fancied a shifter story and this was a perfect read. Fun characters and an interesting storyline made for a great read.

A cutesy/cheesy type of shifter/werewolf type of story. It was a fast & easy read, perfect for mindless predictable reading, though it didn't entice me enough to want to read the next book in the series. This read like a novella/short story, & there wasn't much world building/background which is typical of the novella types. The main characters were a bit flat, though likable. I wanted more development/history from them, but I didn't really know much more about them at the end of the story than ...more

Great new series by Keira Blackwood and Liza Street. Forbidden is a shifter town with a variety of shifter types. Daphne wants to start her own B&B in Forbidden. She buys the old mansion sight unseen. When she arrives she realizes the mansion was really an insane asylum and is falling apart. When Daphne realizes she's going to need help she hires a local construction crew. Without knowing it she's hired the town alpha and his family. What will happen when she is threatened by a monster?

If you like the hunky Alpha males protecting and claiming their human mates, then you will love this series!

Daphne has had a dream of her own bed and breakfast. She has all the details down! She has the scrapbook with every room planned out from the color of the walls to the knick-knacks on the shelves. She found the perfect place in Forbidden, Kentucky and bought it sight unseen and had enough money left over for the renovations she planned. She has to be successful with this venture so she can

Love the new series!

These two authors have once again brought their fans a new PNR series with characters to love and romances that require ice water and a fan.

Daphne has left home. Mom and dad want her back but she's determined to make her dream come true. She's the proud owner of a B&B or it will be once she uses her dream scrapbook to remodel and make it hers. She had no idea just how much the remodel was gonna take until she saw the creepy big old building.

I have to say this wasn't what I was expecting when I started reading.
I like that it's a different take on a shifter romance.
There are 4 brothers and 1 sister. They all live together in a rundown house in the town of Forbidden.
Declan is the Alpha of the shifters in all of Forbidden and he and his family have a general construction business.
I bet your thinking that they are hot and sexy business owners, right?
Umm, they might be good looking, and they might own a barely making it business, but

Daphne is ready to get out on her own and accomplish something important. She is tired of her parents so tightly running her life and needs to be free to pursue her own dreams. She decides to open a Bed & Breakfast and purchases what used to be an asylum in Forbidden, Kentucky. Unfortunately, it is going to need lots of work that she hadn’t counted on.

I have read both Liza Street's Fierce Mates and one of Keira's Alphas & Alchemy. I loved both series and this one is starting out great! Declan O'Malley is the Alpha of his family pack. He and his brothers and sister own a contracting business in Forbidden, Kentucky. Daphne, tired of her parents running her life, buys a Bed & Breakfast sight unseen and packs her car and moves to Kentucky. What she gets when she gets there is not even close to livable.

CLAIMED IN FORBIDDEN is the first book in the Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates series. The Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates series combines the worlds of Keira’s Alphas and Alchemy and Liza’s Fierce Mates. You do not need to have read either of these other two series to enjoy this new combination! Though, I do now know two more series I want to dive into.

This was a fun, whimsical, and entertaining shifter romance with a bit of a creepy factored in (Slug King in an old Asylum? Yuck!).

A shifter romance that has just the right amount of sweet romance and danger. Buying a mansion without seeing it first should of been the first clue that things would not go easy for Daphne. Then to find out it isn’t at all what she thought might destroy her dream of owning a B&B. But some hard working contractors are there to help. And one gruff employee will make things interesting for her. ...more

Though I've read a lot from both these authors this mash-up of worlds didn't grab me right away. Yes, the story was well plotted and engaging, definitely a good read. And I enjoyed the characters and their journey, but in reading the meeting of the two worlds felt a little forced to me. It won't stop me from reading the next in the series or anything but it had moments that didn't ring very true to me. Still a great book and totally worth a read.

Thought it was funny that the big bad wolf shifter was so afraid of slugs. Buying a mansion and turning it into a bed and breakfast is Daphne’s dream and a way to get away from her parents smothering and controlling her. She wants a life of her own.

Fun paranormal read full of supernatural suspense, steamy romance and renovations

This was a fun read full of all things supernatural. There is a mysterious evil, quirky characters and steamy romance. Daphne was a determined strong woman willing to do what it takes to succeed on her own, despite her parents' interference. Declan, the town alpha and local contractor, was sure she was just a pain in his a$$ but could not deny his attraction to her. That combo made for an entertaining read with a si

Fun, quick, easy, entertaining read. The old plot. A naive girl buying a building unseen, she plans to turn into a B&B and a sexy contractor. They can't stand each other at first but eventually can't resist the sexual tension and fall in love. Is the building haunted, or perhaps infested? Add into the mix, that the contractor is a hot shape shifting wolf, advice from a spunky witch, and an original monster and you have a whole new story. I felt the story wrapped up a bit too easily, and there co ...more

Not only is the place she bought not what she expected but she finds many other things aren't quite what she expected either.
