The Longing of Lone Wolves (Fae Guardians #1) by Lana Pecherczyk

Rush is a Fae Guardian, a wolf-shifter whose enhanced abilities have made him a ruthless protector of Elphyne. His job is to protect the realm from the human enemy, and to ensure the sins of the past never come to pass again lest magic die forever. But one night of weakness resulted in a curse worse than death – exile. Now he spends his lonely time longing to be part of the living, once again protecting them from monsters… until one mysteriously washes up on the shores of his lake.

Clarke is human. She’s beautiful, feisty, and fierce. She’s also the only person who can see him, speak to him, and touch him.

If he hands her over to the Order, she’s his ticket to having his curse removed. Unable to resist the opportunity, he tricks her into a bargain of obedience, never once suspecting his world is about to be turned upside down. The more he learns about this human enemy, the more he realizes she’s not the monster he’s been trained to believe. In fact, she’s capable of inciting passion he’d never dreamed possible again. But Clarke has a message from the past… sins are already repeating. This time, if they don’t stop the coming evil, it won’t just be magic that dies. It will be everything.

The Witcher meets Beauty and the Beast in this gripping, new epic fantasy featuring steamy shifter romance, a splash of time travel, monster hunting, a band of brothers, fated mates, growly fae protectors and their strong willed women from our time. If you love your books full of page turning action, romantic tension, and world building you can get lost in, then this book is for you.

This book has been chosen for our August BABE 2023 book club. If by chance you want to attend or read along with us, here’s the link to our group. Each month we do a live chat discussing the selected books.

Lana Pecherczyk is a new to me author and I absolutely loved the book. First of all, the cover is HOT. The blurb? Fae as wolf shifters? Sign me up!!

Rush is a Fae Guardian, a wolf-shifter who has been cursed. You need to wait a while to find out what really happened with him, because as soon as Clarke literally falls into his life, he needs to go to the Order to see if his curse can be lifted. Only, he didn’t expect her to be his mate. He didn’t expect this human to be something more. Protecting her becomes his new goal, even if he knows his at the end of his life magic.

The only thing that makes me sad and if you know about me is that I prefer books written in first person, but I know sometimes I am missing out really great books and this would have been one of them.

I will continue the story and by the way, this is just the beginning, but it’s a standalone for Rush and Clarke’s story, and the main plot will continue along the series.

Redemption (Darkest Skies #1) by Garrett Leigh

Reformed gangster Luis falls hard for his boss. When friendship turns to love, it’s up to Paolo to convince him second chances are worth the pain.

Luis Pope is back on the street after a six year stretch in prison, but life on the outside seems just out of reach, especially when the whole neighbourhood knows his face for all the wrong reasons.

Paolo’s temper makes it hard to keep staff, and he knows Luis’s rep all too well. But his nonno believes in redemption, and Luis isn’t the tough guy Paolo remembers. Prison has left its mark, inside and out, and all the kindness in the world can’t fix the three inch scar on Luis’s skull.

And it can’t keep ghosts locked up. Luis’s the best worker Paolo’s ever had, and Luis’s happier than he’s ever been. But his old life doesn’t want to stay in the past. Trouble comes to call, and when it makes him an offer he can’t refuse, keeping Paolo safe hurts the most.

Redemption is an angsty, standalone MM romance novel, with second chances, found family, friends-to-lovers, and buckets of hurt/comfort themed loveliness.

Forty Day Fiancé (Sassy In The City Book 3) by Erin McCarthy

I’ve got forty days to find a fiance, move in with him and convince the powers-that-be that we’re madly in love.

Seems like a simple green-card plan until I meet Dr. Michael Kincaid.
He’s looking for the real thing: love, a baby, an actual ring. The whole shebang.

I can’t decide which of us is crazier.

Maybe it’s both–because I agree to his demands.

Surely once we’re living together he’ll see how mad it is for an American doctor and a British girl who barely know each other to actually go through with this.

I hadn’t counted on our chemistry. There’s no end to the inventive ways we find to flirt. Not to mention the rather pressing matter of sharing a bed.

Maybe the doctor knows a thing or two about the science of love after all.

Forty Day Fiance is a standalone romantic comedy with a smoking-hot doctor, a fast-talking English heroine, and a Happily Ever After.

Vampire’s Kiss (Mafia Monsters Book 1) by Atlas Rose

He captured my wrist, smooth black leather against my skin. The kiss was hungry, and urgent. His hard chest pressed me against the bricks and before I knew it, my hand was rising to meet the wall.

He had me. Gloved hand pinning my wrists above me. His finger at my temple.

And his lips taking…taking…taking.

The Hidden, we call them. Four Vampires who run this city west of the river.
And my family runs the east.
They’re immortal beasts…more dangerous than my family, the Costello’s.

Only my dying dad has left behind a fuck load of trouble. One of them, a deal with these fanged beasts…a deal that’s now gone south.

Threats on my windshield, and a dead rat impaled on my door makes me confront these monsters.

Elithien, the leader of the Vampire Clan wants to tell me the truth.

Only it’s a truth I don’t want to believe.

But somehow I always return to them.

These Vampires invade my mind…and leave me craving their touch.

Hurrow, Justice and Rule are possessive, and jealous and every bit the bloodthirsty hunters I knew them to be.

I will fight the lies they tell me. I will hold on to the last traces of my sanity.

I won’t become a monster like them…not even for love.

Mykel (King’s Descendants MC #3) by Bella Jewel

Hi there . . .
Hmmm, no, that doesn’t work.
Hey . . .
Not quite.
Howdy . . .
Good lord, what am I? A cowboy?
’Sup?
Yeesh.
Whatever. Let me just get right into it.
I’m Waverly.
There, that wasn’t so hard.
I’m not going to blabber on about how strong and fierce I am.
Or proceed to tell you how broken or damaged I’ve become.
No, I’m just going to tell you that I’m me. Just me. Waverly.
I am all of those things, but I’m also so much more.
I’m helping a club—a club that needs me to bring peace back into its world.
If you had asked me if I’d be working for a biker club six months ago, I would have simply laughed in your face.
I mean, a biker club? Come on.
Yet here I am, doing the unthinkable. Penetrating the deepest, darkest parts of that world.
Pretending to be something I’m not.
I’ve got this, though.
That is one thing about me you should know—I won’t let them down.
I won’t crack under the pressure.
I won’t break, no matter how much horror I see.
There are lives at stake; there are people who need me.
Not a single thing will distract me from the mission I’m on.
At least, that was what I first thought.
Until I didn’t.
Now I’m tangled up in a world I can’t even begin to understand.
Now I’m dealing with feelings that are foreign to me.
Feelings for a monster.
Feelings for an angel.
This is a literal battle between good and evil, and I’m living it.
Who are these men, you ask?
You’re just going to have to start from the beginning.

The Graveyard Shift (A Charley Davidson Novella) by Darynda Jones

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a new story in her Charley Davidson series…

Guarding a precocious five-year-old who is half-human, half-god, and 100% destined to save the world is no easy feat.

Garrett Swopes was the ultimate skeptic until he met a certain hellion and her husband. They vanished after stopping a catastrophic event and left him, a mere mortal, in charge of protecting their gift to mankind. But when she disappears as well, he needs the help of another breed of hellion. One who can see past the veil of space and time. One who betrayed him.

She will get a truce in the deal, but she will never earn his forgiveness.

Marika Dubois’s son—a warrior in the coming war between heaven and hell—was foreseen long before his birth. But to create a child strong enough to endure the trials that lay ahead, she needed a descendant of powerful magics. She found that in Garrett Swopes and tricked him into fathering her son. A ploy he has never forgiven her for. But when he knocks on her door asking for her help, she sees the fierce attraction he tries to deny rise within him.

And Marika has to decide if she dares risk her heart a second time to help the only man she’s ever loved.

Let Me In by Ali Parker

He said I couldn’t do it, but he was wrong.

An old professor at UCLA promised me that I would make nothing of myself, so I made sure I did.

To the tune of billions. I’m only a little cocky about it.

Yachts, parties, and one-night events pretty much spell out my life.

And all of it works well until I run into a beauty I can’t get out of my head.

But we’re keeping it friendly and casual until we aren’t.

There’s just one problem. Her old man hates me.

And for good reason. He was my UCLA professor.

He’s dead set against me becoming anything important to his little girl, but the old man’s got it all backward.

I’m not looking to make an example out of our passion or prove a point.

This isn’t about hit it and quit it.

His daughter is mine, and he might kick me out, but she’s letting me all the way in.

Silver-Tongued Devil by Lorelei James

Their love story sparked a brushfire that grew into the legacy of Lorelei James’s Rough Riders series. This standalone historical romance is a prequel to the McKay family saga.

The West doesn’t get much wilder than Silas McKay. He’s earned his cowboy reputation not just as a rancher, but as a brawling card sharp who’s short on cash but long on charm. And just as soon as he claps eyes on the pretty new schoolteacher? Well, Dinah Thompson is about to discover what courtin’s like McKay-style–sweet, hot and passionate.

Luckily, Dinah’s got the sass and sense to stand up to Silas’s shenanigans. She relocated to rural Wyoming to teach and become a self-reliant woman, not to spend her nights dreaming about that blue-eyed rogue and his ranchwork honed-body. But Silas McKay’s powerful appeal and tempting promises convince Dinah to recklessly go all in with him.

When Silas’s long-standing rivalry with Zeke West puts Dinah, Silas and his twin brother Jonas in danger, each one is forced to make difficult decisions about taking a chance to build their legacy . . . and a love that transcends time.

Be My Queen (The Crown Duet Book 2) by Chelsea McDonald

For years, I had a plan. I’d dissected every little detail, gone over everything that could’ve possibly gone wrong. One thing I didn’t anticipate, was her and the permanent wicked gleam in her eye.

Anastasia Exley was so much more than I expected. One thing I knew for certain was that she was all that I wanted. I didn’t care if she felt the same way. I knew I had to have her from the moment I laid eyes on her and I would’ve done whatever it took to have her.

And, it worked. She was mine. Or maybe, it was the other way around and I was hers. She had a hold over me, one that I hadn’t expected. Our bond was something that I never imagined could be real. The more time we spent together the closer we grew, the more unattainable my desire for her became.

I thought the hard part was over, I thought we were ready for our happily ever after. Obviously, I was wrong. After her disappearing act, I knew I wouldn’t stop until I found her, I would get her back – one way or another. When I did, someone would have some explaining to do.

I will not back down.
I will find her.
I will not lose my happily ever after.
