Series: The Wildflower Series Book 2
Author: Rachelle Mills
Genre: Paranormal Shifter Romance
Release Date: January 29, 2019 Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Dallas by Rachelle Mills is the sequel to Clayton in The Wildflowers Series. Everything you wondered about in the first book is answered in this one. I would almost call Clayton a prequel to The Wildflower Series because now we know why it’s called that. I also look forward to the other women’s stories.
I felt like Rya came into herself during this book. I really can’t say much or I would give away a lot of the book, because A LOT happened and none of the characters are the same. The relationships in this book weren’t perfect, but they were raw and real.
The story was well written and packed with angst, drama, and action.
“The chemistry between the characters is phenomenal and the storyline keeps you on the edge of your seat!! I can't wait to read more from this author.” ~Amazon Review
“This story deserves all 5 stars. Rachelle has a way with words that simply draws you in and doesn't let you stop reading until the end.” ~Amazon Review
It still hurts, watching Clayton love the one he rejected me for, and it probably always will. My body still yearns for my destined mate, the Moon refusing to set us free from the bond that stems from the marrow of our existence.
Anguish and heartache with unbearable pain is the life I thought I was destined to live.
Even though he is not the mate destined for me by the Moon, we decided to choose our own paths.
Fate was ours to determine.
Or so we thought...

Series: The Wildflower Series Book 1
Author: Rachelle Mills
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 18, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
The alpha was supposed to be mine. Our fates were decided by the Moon herself, but he chose to follow his own path to a future that didn’t include me.
Accepting my destined mate’s rejection was the hardest thing I ever had to do, and it cost me my pack, my friends, and in the end…my home.
Now, four years later, I have to rejoin my old pack, forced to see him love another female. Her scent is mixed into the crevices of his skin, and every breath I take is slowly killing me little by little.
How do you tell yourself not to breathe?
But there’s one more element to this story, something I didn’t count on…and his name is Dallas Valentine.
I’m drawn to him in a way I can’t explain. There’s something about him, about the scent of his secrets that lures me in, tempting my most primal instincts. But he’s not destined for me, and what chance do I stand against fate?
I have mixed feelings about this book, so bear with me while I sort them out in this review. I believe this story has excellent bones, but some of the fine details made this hard to rate.
I loved the angst of Clayton. I loved the premise of the story. Rya is a female wolf rejected by her fate/moon chosen mate, Clayton, and someone who is deemed valuable when she reaches her adulthood… just not by her mate. His human side chooses another wolf over her, and the circumstances around this situation are horrific. I won’t spoil that much for y’all.
What bothered me was I spent the whole book wondering why it was called Clayton or the Wildflowers Series. I didn’t understand what it meant to be moon touched and why it was deemed valuable till somewhat late in the game. And still, why was this important to a pack? Also, the packs weren’t named, so they were basically identified by whose pack it was… I wanted more explanations on how their world worked. I liked that it was different than every other PNR Shifter book that I’ve read. I just wanted some clarity on some aspects of it.
Now, I loved Dallas but felt he did this drastic change when he accepted some aspects of himself (don’t want to spoil it). He wasn’t the blushing guy who had a crush on the girl. I wasn’t eased into his change.
Rya was such a strong character. I loved her and her resiliency. I really wanted her to stand up for herself with Clayton though. I wanted her to have some snappy, sassy comebacks to his awfulness.
Overall, I couldn’t put this book down because I wanted to know what happened next, but the devil is in the details—those killed me. Also, the ending left me wanting… there is no resolution because we’re left off on a cliffhanger. Had I realized there was one, I probably wouldn’t have picked this book up, but I’m glad I did. It’s a unique and angsty read. This book had a real Charlaine Harris feel/tone that I really enjoyed. The author has a really great voice.
3.5 to 4 Stars
“Clayton is so different from the PNR out there nowadays, and I loved it!” - Red Hatter Book Blog
“Clayton is a steamy, hot, dark pararomance.” - Rose (Goodreads)
“I suggest everyone take a chance on this soul cleansing adventure.” - Goodreads Review

Title - Soul Food: A Steamy Paranormal Love Story
Author - Michelle Gross
Genre - 18+ Paranormal Romance
Release Date: November 25, 2018
With no choice, a human bargains her soul for ten years of music and song.
With no time for anything beyond her dream, Ruth Thomas becomes a worldwide sensation, never knowing love or appreciating lust until she finally meets the mysterious president of Black Hearts, Amit Kingston.
In a game of seduction, Ruth thinks she can enjoy a moment of lust, if only once, before the demon comes and devours her soul. Only the demon makes touching men impossible and getting Amit Kingston to crack is a job itself.
The demon doesn’t just own her soul. He controls every aspect of her life, including her fragile heart and her body’s desires.
Worst of all, Ruth doesn’t realize how close the demon really is.
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Dark Arts and a Daiquiri
“This is really nice,” I gushed, unconcerned by the apartment’s lackluster finishes. Beggars couldn’t be choosers, and having spent the last ten months sleeping on my brother’s sofa, I was ready to overlook anything less than holes in the walls.
Which, unfortunately, had been included in all the apartments we’d viewed so far, along with complimentary mold, cockroaches, and suspicious odors. That wasn’t including the batshit crazy landlords. Did normal people not dabble in real estate investment, or did all the well-adjusted landlords have tenants already?
“It’s clean,” Sin observed. “Running water. Heat. Wait, does it have heat? It’s cold in here.”
“Well, it is a basement.” I flapped my printout. “It says all utilities are included in the rent. How sweet is that?”
Sin wrinkled her nose suspiciously. “It’s too cheap. There’s got to be something wrong with it.”
“Maybe there’s a hobo living in the crawlspace.” I pointed at a half-height door tucked in a corner of the living room. “That’s a crawlspace, right?”
We crossed the room and I crouched at the door, Sin leaning over my shoulder. I pulled it open. Inside was nothing but impenetrable darkness.
“Use your phone’s flashlight,” Sin suggested. “There must be a light switch or—”
Chill air whispered over my skin and all the hair on my body stood on end—then arctic wind blasted me in the face.
I recoiled, crashing into Sin’s legs. She landed on her ass as the wind howled out of the crawlspace, whipping dust through the room. My printouts went flying and we scrambled backward on our butts with the papers spiraling toward the ceiling.
The darkness in the crawlspace leaked out from the doorway and pooled on the floor like ink. Shadows writhed and something pale materialized in the threshold—a skeletal woman on her hands and knees, toothless mouth gaping, empty eye sockets dribbling black blood.
I took one look at the moaning specter and screamed like the sissy girl that I am.
Sin let out her own terrified shriek as the ghostly woman dragged herself out of the crawlspace, her long hair trailing on the floor. She stretched a hand toward us, blackened fingers curled like claws, and icy gusts lashed at our faces. Still screaming, Sin grabbed my arm, her fingernails digging into my skin. Sharp pain cut through my panic.
I jammed my hand into my pocket and whipped out my trump card—yes, a literal card.
My trusty Queen of Spades was more than it appeared: a sorcerer’s artifact embedded with a spell that reflected magic. Was there any magic here to rebound? I had no idea. Would it work on a ghost? Also no idea. I wasn’t a sorcerer. I was a crime-of-convenience thief and I had only the vaguest notion how to use the card.
But it was the lone magical defense I had, so I thrust it at the phantom and shouted, “Ori repercutio!”
The air rippled and the gale-force wind reversed direction. It slammed into the woman, flinging her back into the crawlspace. Her head hit the door frame with a whack.
“Ow!” she squeaked.
Sin’s scream cut off. In unison, we launched to our feet. We weren’t screaming anymore, but I for one was even more freaked out. The woman was too solid to be a ghost, but holy freaking shit, that body did not belong to a living being—papery skin clinging to bones, empty sockets for eyes, stringy hair down to her knees.
The ghost woman sprang up, raising her hands like claws. “Begone from this place,” she moaned. “Begooooone … or else!”
I tilted my head toward Sin, not daring to take my eyes off the not-a-ghost. “Hey, Sin. Is that … a vampire?”
“No.” She pulled a handful of vials with colorful liquid contents out of her purse. “Not even close.”
Selecting a bottle, she dropped the others back into her bag and unscrewed the top. A hideous smell like burnt iron singed my nose.
“No!” the woman shrieked—except she didn’t sound like a woman anymore. Her voice was two octaves higher and painfully nasal. “Don’t!”
Sin held out the bottle threateningly. “Show us your real form or I’ll drench you!”
“Noooo! Go away!” The woman stomped her foot. “Stupid humans! This is my house!”
Raising her hand higher, Sin started to tip the bottle.
“Uuuuugh. Fine.” The woman threw her hands up—and her body melted. It lost solidity and shrank, then reformed into something new.
The creature was dark green with skin the waxy texture of pine needles. Even with twigs sprouting off its large head in place of hair, it barely reached my waist, and a mixture of spruce branches and pine cones hid its torso. Thin arms and legs stuck out of the twiggy mess, its hands and feet comically oversized.
Its eyes, narrowed angrily, dominated its face, the crystalline green irises unnaturally bright and entirely lacking pupils—just giant green orbs.
The creature pointed an accusing finger at us. “This is my house! Leave or I’ll turn you into bean sprouts!”
I cleared my throat. “Okay, not a vampire,” I said to Sin. “What is it?” “This,” Sin replied grimly, “is a faery.”

Title: A Shifter’s Claim

Genre: Paranormal Romance
About A Shifter’s Claim:A shifter without a mate is a shifter without a mind. It’s been five years since Shilo’s mate walked out on her and she’s been just a little, tiny bit unstable, a feeling that isn’t helped by the impending fight with a neighboring colony. She might not be all there, but even a crazed shifter knows waking up in a stranger’s bed hours from home to find the contacts from her pack murdered means she’s in trouble. Aimless and restless and unconcerned with anything beyond his next one-night stand, Waylon agrees to act as bodyguard for some shifter pack liaison embroiled in a power struggle. What could it hurt? He’s been aching for five years, and maybe this assignment will take his mind off all he’s lost. But when he meets his client, his world stops. It’s her. His mate. The one he left. Thanks to their history, he can’t just walk away and leave her as a target. Thanks to her instability, she can’t go home without backup. If either wants to survive the bloody present, both will have to set aside their heartbreaking past and fight for their uncertain future.

A Shifter’s Claim is the first book I’ve read from Marie Johnston, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This novel is a couple of book in on an ongoing series, but I was able to read it as a standalone.
**I will warn you, and this may be a possible spoiler, so don’t read any further if you don’t want to know …**
If you don’t like the hero and heroine with other people while they’re together but not together then this will bother you. Both main characters are with other people while broken up/separated. It’s explained in a way that makes you feel better about it, but you will get frustrated with both of them.
There’s a mystery and some angst which I loved. I read it in one day because I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what happened next. Marie Johnston created some realistic characters in a paranormal universe in which people shift to wolves.
One of my favorite parts of this shifter world was that they developed extra skills or powers. I thought that was interesting since it’s something I have only read in vampire novels. I also thought it was beautiful how the heroine’s gift was crafting and she used it to keep the culture of her people alive. That got me a little teary, and you’ll see what I mean at the end.
Overall, this is a book I would recommend to fellow PNR lovers.
