Adirondack Pack, #1.5
paranormal, mythology, romance
There is a man in her bed and Sadie isn’t sure how she feels about that. The wolf she once considered a pet is now her mate. She needs time to process but Owen feels it is his duty as alpha to help them along into a happy marriage, starting with their honeymoon. For the next week, Sadie will only have Tyson for company as they hike through the Adirondack Mountains. Figuring out sleeping arrangements with only one extra-large sleeping bag will turn out to be the least of their problems as Tyson informs her that someone has been pursuing them since the very beginning.
Sadie has now married Tyson – now that he has been tamed and is no longer feral he can become a good mate for her.
Sadie, as explained in previous books, was not born a werewolf and it is taking her a time to get adjusted to her new situation especially now that Tyson is no longer feeling the need to be Fred the ‘tame’ wolf for her.
Tyson of course, still has to perform his pack duties, which is again something that Sadie needs to get used to.
The Werewolf Meets his Match
Nocturne Falls Book #2
paranormal romance, mystery, contemporary, new adult, humour
(1 July 2015)
Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Getting arrested wasn’t on werewolf Ivy Kincaid’s agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she’s come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. Not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé. Sheriff (and werewolf) Hank Merrow is the alpha's heir. Everything he's ever done, from becoming an Army Ranger to serving in law enforcement, has been in preparation for the day he’ll take over. Getting married to cement a shaky truce is no different. Hank will do his duty, even if it means shackling himself to a woman he has no intention of liking, let alone loving. But Ivy is nothing like Hank expected. As feisty as she is beautiful, she's as determined as he is to make a go of marriage for the sake of peace between their packs. The trouble is, Ivy has secrets that could destroy everything Hank holds dear...including his newfound love for her.
It’s Halloween in Nocturne Falls – well it’s always Halloween in Nocturne Falls, so no change there.
I love this series – nothing too serious and some really great different characters in the fantasy world of romance and humour.
As indicated by the title we are concerned about a werewolf this time and his romance.

It's either the beginning or the end for Sadie James. She came to the small Adirondack town of Andora looking for a fresh start. One that didn't include the pitying looks of strangers who saw her on the news. Only days into her new life and already she is in trouble. That is, unless the wolf in front of her was salivating at the sight of some other woman in the vast forest around her. After killing his sister, Tyson searched for oblivion the only way he knew how to. As a wolf he could run from the life he left behind and become the animal he always was. The time between lucidness grows longer each times he surfaces. One day he won't be able to come back at all. It was the only thing he looked forward to until a lost woman fell at his feet. Sadie is in danger and she is blind to it. Although, it was never proven, Tyson always believed Jack was behind his sister's ultimate demise. Now Jack has his sights set on Sadie. Can he fight the pull of the wild or will he let her face the wolves alone?
This is the first book in the Adirondack Pack series
I am giving it 5 stars as it convinced me to actually purchase all the books in the series after I read the one enclosed in this (Year of the Wolves Vol 2) box set!
I enjoyed all the different characters and their storylines. The writing varied from being written 1st person from the character’s viewpoint to the more generic 3rd person.
There is underlying story of conflict between werewolves who want to live as humans live within a human environment/town, whilst maintaining their ‘wolfiness’ as a hidden but group life; and those – the Canidae – who want to be more wolf and less human. Going back to their Nordic roots in behaviour. – See Fenrir and Norse mythology.
Too Far Gone by KC Stewart explains the Sadie and Tyson romance story and how she brings him back to humanity from his feral edge. 4
A thirty-year alliance that aligned wolves and hunters has shattered. Victoria Storm leads a few surviving members of her pack in a desperate flight. As the only surviving child of their leaders, the she-wolf inherited the role of Alpha. The violent deaths of her parents and the man she loved left her devastated, and the lives of her followers depend on her decisions. Simple survival often conflicts with the demands of preserving her Norse heritage, so she must struggle to balance her duties as Freya's priestess and Odin's Valkyrie. When innocent children are abducted, she must set aside her differences and work with her worst enemy to rescue them. 136 Pages, 1st Edition. Urban Fantasy/ Norse & Viking Folklore Standalone novel.
Read in the boxset: Year of the Wolf Pack Vol 2
This is the prequel to Hunger Moon. And originally #0 now #1 in the series.
Here we have a female alpha wolf (very rare) who swears to find justice. And is assisted by Freya as she is her handmaiden – but it turns out she is also Odin’s Valkyrie – ie dead!
Nice storyline. Freya is ‘live’ and very involved with her wolves.

A know it was a bonus story but….
Really very short indeed and the story doesn’t really go anywhere
