Описание

They hunger for your pleasure. They growl for your touch. And in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling authors Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden, these sexy wolf shapeshifters are lust at first bite . . .

Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston

Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn't be happier when the most-feared member of the South's rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there's nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts—and have her surrender however and whenever she wants . . .

Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden

Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem—Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla's secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game . . .

Contains mature themes.

    While I already own a copy or two of Howl for It, I was given an advanced copy of the republished edition from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The following review consists solely of my opinions and no one else's.I love and worship Shelly Laurenston so when NetGalley showed a republication of Howl for It, I nearly poured a bottle of water on my laptop to click the request button. Howl for It is a duet anthology consisting of Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston, Book 0.5 of the Pride series, and Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden.Like a Wolf with a Bone I can’t not gush about Eggie Ray Smith, he's one of my favourite characters from Shelly Laurenston. I’ve been in love with Eggie Ray Smith’s character since reading about needing to call Uncle Eggie in to deal with some issues in The Beast in Him. He's fearsome and overly protective of anyone he deems 'his'. And, as soon as he set eyes on Darla Mae Lewis, she was his and he'd do anything to keep her safe. Which means when Darla Mae is attacked by a squad of full-humans trying to kill her, Eggie does what Eggie Ray Smith does best. He starts the killin'.Most shifters in the world are terrified of Eggie Ray Smith, even his fellow packmates aren't comfortable around him and aren't exactly bending over backwards to invite him to sit a spell with them. Which makes little Darla Mae none too happy when she finds out. Eggie's a fearsome shifter to be sure, but he's not a bad guy. He begs for his mother's help to take out Darla's stitches because he's worried his hands are too rough to touch Darla. He tries to change himself for Darla but Darla is quick to tell him she likes him just the way he is.Darla Mae Lewis is one of those people I'd love to have in my life, she's loving and trusting but she's also an assertive woman who will kick ass if she feels she has to. She's very loyal and defends Eggie Ray several times, even against her own sisters. Darla Mae is also a well-travelled and highly educated pastry chef, working at Van Holtz Restaurants all over the place and even having her European culinary education funded by her boss. Best of all? Darla Mae Lewis is a bona fide all-inclusive feminist. Yes, she's an apex predator shifter who shifter males know not to mess with, but she understands all women need equality and does the marching and protesting just like we are today.In Like a Wolf with a Bone, we get to see how some older characters from Laurenston's shifter books were as 'new adults', Blayne Thorpe's daddy, Sissy Mae's and Smitty's parents, and, of course Dee-Ann's parents. We also meet Sara Morrighan's parents at a Woodstock-style party in the mountains.With Like a Wolf with a Bone, I always enjoy reading the story. I think I actually have it memorised. Every part of the story had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Nothing was left unresolved. As a standalone and not a paired book, I'd rate Like a Wolf with a Bone, as 5 out of 5 stars because it's one of my favourite Laurenston books and it needs more gushing since it's a short story.Wed or DeadI admit it. Before this ARC, I'd actually never read Cynthia Eden's half of the book. So, this was actually my first time reading Wed or Dead. I enjoyed Kayla and Gage's story, but it wasn't really my kind of book. I'm not a fan of the 'genetically compatible for breeding mate' trope, women are not incubators and that's always what this trope says to me.I did, however, enjoy the beginning of the story which starts with Kayla convincing herself to walk down the aisle of a Las Vegas strip chapel to her waiting groom, Gage. And then, we have a wedding night and meh. But that morning after routine was pretty amazing with the whole "can I really bring myself to kill the person I just had sex with, my newly wedded spouse?". The escape out the window was shocking and exhilarating from my spot in my safe bed with my cosy pupper under my head. Don't ask me to jump out the window to certain death, but I'll totally read or watch it.The way the story played out, the betrayals and the enemy of my enemy is my friend thing? I liked it but some of it (the Big Bad) was too bad for me. Not on a literary level but on a moral level. There are just some things that you don't do and The Big Bad did it. Like, can I just slip into the story and be a little homicidal on The Big Bad?While Wed or Dead wasn't very memorable for me, I did like reading it. I'll even go read the other Cynthia Eden books I bought just because they were there. Don't judge. I like to have options. But because it wasn't very memorable and it played on a trope I have no love for among a few other things you'll probably notice if you read it, I'm only giving it 3 stars.Overall, I give Howl for It (both Like a Wolf with a Bone and Wed or Dead) 4 out of 5 stars and 3 out of 5 flames. I especially enjoyed reading Howl for It because the sexy times are limited because the stories are short in order to provide a full story for us readers to enjoy.

    Great novel. I was particularly glad to get to read Eggie's story. I love all of Shelly's shifters.

    I only read Shelly Laurenston's paranormal story with her typical wacky fighting and while enjoyable it was a short little story not as captivating as other of her shifter stories. Solitary among their wolf shifter families military hit man Eggie saves pacifist Darla from attack.

    These two novellas were good illustrations of each author's style.In "Like a Wolf with a Bone" by Shelly Laurenston we have a humorous paranormal. Eggie Smith is the most feared wolf shifter in his very fearsome family. And he likes it that way. He likes being able to frighten humans and other shifters with just a glance. Darla Lewis isn't the least bit intimidated. She took one close glance into his eyes and knew all about him. Eggie rescues her from humans who want to kill her because she can link them to a murder. Eggie will do whatever it takes to protect his pacifist, pastry-baking mate. In "Wed of Dead" we have a hunter marrying a wolf shifter. She thinks that it is only to get close to him so that she can kill him. After all, her boss has shown her evidence that he has been preying on humans. Only thing is, the boss has been lying for his own ends. Now Gage and Kayla have to find a way to out the boss and save both the hunters and the wolves from betrayal. For humor, check out Laurenston. For more intense and spicier reading, check out Eden.

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyHOWL FOR IT serves up a pair of fun and frisky tales from two best selling paranormal romance authors: Shelly Laurenston (aka G.A. Aiken), and Cynthia Eden. Both stories are plenty steamy, though Laurenston’s Pride prequel, LIKE A WOLF WITH A BONE has the edge in terms of sensuality, Eden’s WED OR DEAD is the more suspenseful story.Fans of Shelly Laurenson’s long running Pride series are in for a treat with this prequel novella that takes reader’s back to the 1970′s and relates how Dee-Ann Smith’s parents: Darla Mae Lewis and Egbert “Eggie” Ray Smith got together. LIKE A WOLF WITH A BONE involves kidnapping, murder, crazy families, and pie. I’m new to the series, and while the hillbilly-esque characters did take some getting used to, I found the romance between sweet and innocent Darla and gruff loner Eggie (hate that name btw) to be charming in the end and reminded me a little of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers but without singing and a lot of sex.A Vegas wedding gone seriously wrong is how Cynthia Eden’s WED OR DEAD starts off and I was hooked from the start. Borrowing a bit from Underworld and even a little Bird on a Wire, Kayla and Gage fall for each other despite knowing the they are supposed to kill each other. It’s a hot, action packed read that I’d love to see spun into a series. Of the two, this was my favorite, but fans of shifter romances will enjoy them both.Sexual Content:Graphic sex scenes

    Howl For It by Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia EdenPride #0.5WOW – Looking for a book that provides alpha male shapeshifters in wonderful stories AND women that get them? Look no further!Like A Wolf With A Bone by Shelly LaurenstonI LOVED this story! Egbert “Eggie” Ray Smith is a bad boy with a reputation that leaves most people afraid to get near him but Darla Mae Lewis “sees” him and only feels safe and secure when he is close. This is definitely new for Eggie and he laps it up. Darla may seem sweet and gentle but she is a whole lot more than a smart woman in a beautiful body…and definitely capable of taking care of herself. When her life is threatened Eggie steps in and does what he does so well…ruthlessly keeps her safe. I loved the couple, the dialogue, the setting and just everything about this story. It left me feeling good with a smile on my face and wanting to read more by this author. (5 Stars)Wed Or Dead by Cynthia EdenCompletely different in some ways but also the story of a hot male shifter who knows what he wants – yep – Gage wants Darla and is willing to marry her in spite of the secrets she is keeping. This is a story of hunters seeking out and killing paranormal entities. The hunters’ leader is a ruthless government contractor with a secret of his own. The fact that Darla falls for her prey while trying to enact a black widow scenario is only part of this wonderful nail-biting edge-of-your-seat story. Another stellar story that goes very well with the other in the book. (5 Stars) Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review.5 Stars

    4.5*Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.Howl For It contains two paranormal stories by authors I love. To read. Authors I love to read. *cough* Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston is about Eggie Ray Smith and Darla Mae Lewis, parents to the scary Dee-Ann Smith of many Pride books. Eggie Ray is one scary killer and Darla Mae is a pacifist. Well, she’s as much of a pacifist as a wolf shifter can be. The two shouldn’t have a thing in common, but their chemistry is off the charts and they find they can rub along quite well together. Now, if they can just keep their annoying families out of their business then Eggie won’t have to kill any of his, or her, kin.My only complaint about this story is that it is too short. I can read Pride books forever and never want them to end. I love the snarky conversation, the descriptions, the shifter interactions and the humor. When I open a Pride book I know I’m going to be entertained and I was not disappointed in this one. I actually rate this a 5 biter even if it was more of a snack than a meal.Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden seems to be set in the same world of her Night Watch and The Fallen series. Same world but maybe only loosely connected though I’m not positive. Anyway, Gage Ryder is a wolf shifter, the Alpha of Las Vegas and he’s being hunted. Kayla Kincaid is human, but she’s also something else. A Hunter. When her boss orders her to get close to Gage she does so. And when Gage asks her to marry him, her boss orders her to do so. But when he tells her to stab Gage in the heart with a silver blade on their wedding night, she just can’t do it. So with a Hunter team closing in, Gage and Kayla make a run for it together though neither one trusts the other. And that makes for a shaky start to a marriage.I always enjoy Cynthia Eden’s writing and characters. The plot on this could have used a bit more in the pre-planning stage instead of starting with Kayla walking down the aisle. I was a bit confused as to what the hell was going on and it made me a tad cranky. However, the plot picks up, things are explained and I was soon on the same page as the characters. If this is a short story introducing us to a new series I look forward to reading more. 4 bites and a nibble out of 5.
