DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

It’s week two of The Legend review series. We are now onto Red Eclipse. This is by far one of my favorites in this series so far. And, McKayla doesn’t disappoint by slacking on the sexy werewolves and witches. Check out my review provided below.

The Review

Alia is a witch on the run. She has a past that will come back to haunt her if she stays in one place for too long. But, when a man gets shot she has know choice but to help. Now putting the target on her back and an imprint bond with a man she doesn’t no, she finds her world turned upside down.

Olsen was shot. All he remembers is the smell of the woman who saved him and he knows she is his mate. He only has three days to find her but life tends to get in the way with being the second in command.

McKayla Schutt continues her series on strong legs. This book strengthens the world building book one started. She does a great job introducing two knew characters and makes you fall in love with the both of them. The love between these two is inspiring and keeps you turning the page. Highly recommend this book to anyone wanting sexy werewolves with a thing for witches.

Stars: 4 out of 5 Stars

Book Review: Celina

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

Greetings everyone, it’s another fine day here in Iowa. Hope everyone is having a good day so far. I am happy to say my first weekly review series is about to start. I was trying to figure out which series to do first. So, I thought I would start off with a series that made me fall in love with wolf shifters. This is why I will be spending the next nine weeks reviewing The Legend Series by McKayla Schutt. I hope you will join me on this wild ride and read along as I unleash my thoughts.

The Review

She has to chose between the sanctuary of her coven or the uncertainties set before her if she chooses to stay with her mate. But, with her daughter to think about Celina journeys out to re-connect with her mate after a long absence. With obstacles in her way will she choose her mate or leave him forever.

Pico has lived without his mate for several years. The pain of loss is to hard to bare and he is about to give up. Then Celina walks into the picture once again and he falls all over again for her. Now that she is back a power struggle happens within his pack and trying to find his place is even harder than ever.

McKayla Schutt builds a world that is very relatable. The characters are believable and you fall for them instantly. Besides a few grammar and structural issues with the final product the book is well written. You can’t help but fall in love with the story from page one. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for sexy werewolves and a happily ever after story.

Book Review~ Aribelle: The First Female Alpha

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

Welcome to hump day and boy do I got a treat for you. Today I am featuring a review on McKayla Schutt’s latest release “Aribelle: The First Female Alpha.” This book was beyond amazing and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I actually sat down and read it only in a few hours, mainly because I couldn’t put it down. Check out my review below.

The Review

Aribelle is the first born of her family. She is first in line to take the alpha spot when wolves start showing up with their hearts cut out. Now with the burden of leadership things are even more complicated when she imprints with the rival packs second in command. Aribelle has to find out who is killing her pack mates and keep a level head while showing she has what it takes to be on top in a man’s job.

Nikolaj is the second in command to his feisty new mates rival pack. His pack mates have been coming up dead for weeks. The only course of action is to blame the rival pack alpha for the crimes. But, when he goes to confront the enemy alpha things get hairy. Now imprinted to the new she-alpha Nikolaj man pride is put to the test. Will he be able to find a balance to keep his mate?

McKayla Schutt switches the roles in this book of hers. Instead of the usual dominant male lead taking over the pack with a female trying to find her place, we find ourselves with a female alpha. She does a wonderful job showing the emotional struggle for both her main characters. Each faces their own obstacles while trying to keep a level head. Not only that you can see the strength the two pull off each other. Her world building is spot on and makes like-able characters that make you fall in love with them on page one. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a twist on the tradition male power role. It’s about time a female took the lead.

Stars: 5 out of 5 stars

DarkDeath

JENKINS_2019_DARKDEATH_INTRO

Names DarkDeath and today K.M. is letting me take over for this feature. Normally, I would tend to the pack and try to keep the pups in line. But, I am using this as an excuse to get away. The pups are a pain in the ass and the duties of being the King suck.

What ever you do don’t tell SnowFire. If she finds out I am lagging on the job, she will have my head. She already knows I have been looking for excuses to get away. Love the pups to death but gods above they are little biters. I don’t know how much more my tail can take.

Anyway, I should probably tell you about myself instead of wallowing in self-pity. I’m a kyre, a shape shifting being that takes the form of a wolf. Our kind aren’t like normal wolves. Many of my kind have special abilities while others not so much. I don’t have any ability, but my mate SnowFire does.

SnowFire holds the power over ice and snow. She is a real cold bitch when she wants to be. I hate the snow with a passion, but she is one with it because of her power. I’ve seen her conjure up shards of ice and impale our enemies. Then turn around and create beautiful snowflakes to entertain our pups. Either way, the power she wields is formable.

I rather do the dirty work the hard way, with my claws. Nothing feels better than sinking my nails deep into the body of my enemy. Snow says I get carried away sometimes but who wouldn’t when the bloodlust sets in.

Weakness is not something I can afford since I’m the King of Beasts. The Forest of Ferrês is my home and kingdom. Even if the gods at be don’t want our kind in charge. But, till the day Nµtari comes into my land and takes over—I’m in charge. And, those twin-tailed foxes better stay the hell out. Hate them with a passion if you can’t tell. I would go into detail why but K.M. has a story coming out soon that will explain this to everyone.

Do you have any questions you would like me to answer feel free to comment below? I don’t want to bore you to death, so I plan to keep this post brief. Perhaps, I will stick my head in again sometime soon. I know a few playful stories about the pups you would die to hear.

COVER REVEAL ~ The Wrath of SnowFire

Today is the day, I will showcase my cover for the next installment of the Tales of Ferrés short story series. I plan to release this short story towards the end of January 31, 2019. “The Wrath of SnowFire” will introduce you to DarkDeath’s mate and the Queen of the forest SnowFire. She is definitely an alpha female you don’t want to mess with when it comes to protecting her pups.

These stories don’t follow a timeline and each can be considered a stand-a-lone. They don’t have to be read in any particular order, so feel free to have fun with it. If you are wanting sneak peeks beside what my flash fiction tales and short stories provide, please consider joining my street team. It is a group of fans, fellow authors and friends that come together to learn about the worlds I create, promote my books and help me along my journey as an author.

Now that I have rambled on forever here is my cover for “The Wrath of SnowFire.”

JENKINS_2018_TWOS_EBOOK_150

RELEASE DATE: January 31, 2019

After long months being on puppy duty SnowFire finally gets a day of freedom. The day should have been relaxing, but it turned into a mother’s worst nightmare. As an intruder enters their territory SnowFire rushes to her pups to protect them. Word is delivered to her that one of her older pups is missing and all claws are out as she hunts the land to find her.

DarkDeath watches his mate go postal when the word gets delivered a twin-tailed fox entered their territory. With his second in command at his side they search for the enemy only to find they might be too late. As the wind mingles SnowFire’s and the enemies scent together––magic takes shape leaving DarkDeath fearing for his mate’s life.

Will SnowFire’s rage push her past her breaking point? Or, will DarkDeath save her from herself? See what happens in the 6th installment within the Tales of Ferrês story series and find out why this alpha female shouldn’t be messed with.

Rayne’s Perfect Mate Book Review

Just getting around to posting my review for this awesome book I read last week. It has been hectic with trying to find the time to sit down to focus on my blog. You’re probably wondering, if you don’t have time to blog then when do you have the time to read. I would say I get to read maybe once a week. I actually sat down to read Rayne’s Perfect Mate the same day I bought it. It was done in two hours. I devoured it that fast. You will find my review below and if you’re wondering I loved it.

****

Rayne’s Perfect Mate was an awesome read. It had me gripped from the very first page. The pages just went by so fast I devoured this book in under 2 hours and want more. McKayla did an awesome job depicting the true turmoil that inflicts mothers that are faced with the worse change possible, raising your kids alone. Take a journey to how she finds the answer to all her problems after a mate she never imprinted with walks out for her true mate to walk in. Looking forward to book 3 and hopefully more :).


RAYNESPERFECTMATE_COVERRAYNE’S PERFECT MATE

Book 2 in the Denver Troubles Series

When Rayne finds out she’s pregnant with her second baby it comes right on the heel of her mate leaving her. Now she’s on her own and has no time to be happy…with her emotions rolling out of control she thought things couldn’t get worse. Not until she imprints with her boss, Zac. Rayne hopes to catch a small break but the man she’s meant to be with has his own hesitations on becoming an alpha dad. She must be strong for her little girl, Annmarie, and her unborn child. No matter how bad things get. When Annmarie goes missing she’s ready to tear apart the whole city to find her. With or without Zac at her side.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, will stop her from protecting her kids even if it breaks her heart.

Zac has forced himself to keep his distance from Rayne for two long years but now that’s no longer an issue when they imprint at the grocery store…he’s not sure who’s more shocked. Him or Rayne. But completing the bond will make him a father to another man’s daughter and add to that…Rayne is pregnant. He’s not sure if he’s ready for everything; two kids and neither of them are his. Then things go to hell like a -bad shift when Rayne’s daughter goes missing and he suddenly feels as if a piece of him clicks into place. Can he and Rayne face their problems together? Or will they crash and burn in the face of such immense trials?

He’ll be faced with challenges he never thought possible all because of the woman he loves.

Maple’s Strong Alpha Book Review

In my October Newsletter I featured McKayla Schutt’s new release Rayne’s Perfect Mate to all my VIP Readers. Once I found out Rayne’s book was the second in the series I went out and bought book 1. I wanted to get an idea of McKayla’s work and didn’t expect the outcome I got.

Maple’s Strong Alpha is suspenseful, steamy and a hole can of awesome mixed into one novella size book. I haven’t gotten this deep into a book in a long time and I couldn’t put it down. Each character had their own realm of stubborn mixed with wolf hormones going crazy. There were times I wanted to laugh at characteristics the wolves showcased. But, the hardest part was waiting for the climax of the book. I won’t reveal any spoilers.

After reading this book I was hooked. I already purchased book 2 and read it in one sitting. Now I am waiting on book 3. This is by far my favorite read of 2018 and highly recommend everyone to snatch this one up. McKayla already has wolves prancing around in my head making me want to write my own stories.


Screen Shot 2018-10-22 at 11.15.20 PMMAPLE’S STRONG ALPHA

When seven-year-old Cora landed on Raymand’s door step, he planned on finding her a permanent home… somewhere else. With hunters killing parents and kidnapping pups for God only knows what, Raymand is trying to keep his whole pack protected. When he meets his feisty mate, Maple, the urgency to get Cora out grows stronger. He won’t delay completing the bond with Maple.

Nothing will stop him from creating his own family with his mate.

Maple has always been the headstrong wolf that doesn’t take crap from anyone. When she goes to meet the pack’s lawyer about contract issues, she meets the alpha struggling to deal with Cora who lost both of her parents. Even before they imprint, Maple feels a deep connection to the sexy alpha and this cute pup. She wants to make things work with her bad alpha mate and she plans on convincing him to be a dad to little Cora.

She’ll challenge the alpha to keep Cora in their lives.
