Synopsis (Goodreads):
As Alpha of the Lonely River Pack, Jack Owens is responsible for keeping the peace between what's left of the human population and the wolves who have taken over since the War. All wolves are his responsibility--even the ones like Virginia Howard, who don't recognize his authority.

Ginny's been a thorn in Jack's side since she took over her parents’ operation and established herself as one of the area's premiere ranchers. The fact that she's everything he wants in a mate makes it hard to stay away from her...but any good hunter knows how to bide his time.

Ginny fights hard to maintain her independence from men, human and werewolf alike. The humans may not like having a woman as their chief competition, but they're not the ones determined to see her submit. When a group of angry wolves try to run her out of business, she's forced to accept Jack's assistance. But in saving her ranch, Ginny runs the risk of losing something far greater--her heart.
My Thoughts on Wild Card: Does Moira Rogers write some good dirty or WHAT? Her werewolves are dominant, strong, and like to love their partners into the wee hours of the night. Plus, they don't mind a little rending a tearing when they need to show the other wolves who's boss.

I should probably throw in that they ride horses, shoot guns, and are downright awesome while I'm at it.

Jack and Ginny have been dancing around one another for years. Jack knows he wants Ginny. Ginny's afraid of losing her independence so she pushes against him. It's practically inevitable that once they're forced to be near one another, those sparks will turn into something they can't control.

Dirty lovin', dominance games, and two wolves who stake their claim as soon as they get the chance. Throw in a young werewolf on the edge of mating and a group of rogues looking to challenge the Alpha's authority and you're in for one wild ride!

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Hazel Young is a rare commodity in town: a young, single female whose first mating is nearly upon her, and she’s spent the last two years fending off suitors. After all, there's nothing flattering about being wanted for the heat in her blood instead of for herself...especially when she gave her heart away to Oliver Russell years ago. But Oliver seems to feel nothing for her but fond kindness, and the time has come to choose a mate before the wolf makes the choice for her.

When Oliver happens across Hazel being pressured by a local who wants to be her first, it awakens protective instincts he thought he'd set aside with the death of his wife five years ago. With Hazel in heat and no time to get her to safety, they wind up in a fishing shack on Lonely River. They have no choice but to ride out her mating fever together...even if the last thing he expects is to be truly tempted by her inexperienced attempts at seduction.
My Thoughts on Calling the Bluff: Oh, I adore Hazel and Oliver together. To be so infatuated with someone that your wolf won't accept anyone else has to be its own special kind of hell. Poor Hazel. And poor Oliver. He's just a little bit clueless when it comes to romancing the ladies and since Hazel's no push-over, she lets him know when he says something wrong.

The upside? When he lets go of his inhibitions and gives in, he does it ALL right. And Oliver has some pent up emotions going on. As does Hazel. Being in the grip of a mating heat and with the only guy who can turn her crank makes them a rather volatile couple.

And I like that.

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Thomas Crawford is Lonely River's beta, and it's high time he settled down. He's had his eye on Charlotte Daniel, the owner of the Full Moon Saloon -- and independent cuss of a woman -- for months, but she either hasn't noticed his gentle courting... or she's ignoring him. But when some local wolves lodge a complaint about her questionable business practices it's Thomas's job to investigate, even if it means the woman he wants will hate him forever.

Lottie has noticed Thomas's courting, all right, but it's a little too polite for her tastes. She wants a man with fire and sensuality, not daisies and poetry. Then he kisses her. Once she gets a glimpse of the passion burning in him, Lottie decides a slow, careful seduction isn't a bad idea at all. But she'll do it her way.
My Thoughts on Ante Up: I have a soft spot for wolves who hide their power for the good of the pack. Thomas does just that. Unfortunately, that means that Lottie doesn't know how deep his emotions run. Poor Thomas. Pushing his own desires aside so that he's the go-to guy when people need help. *sniffle* Buttoning down all that power and emotion can't be good for a guy.

This is pretty much proven when he goes and accidentally gets his horn on with Lottie. And she loves it! It's exactly that sort of passion she's looking for and Thomas gives it to her and then gives it to her again. Whew! I love it when those wolves get their sexy on!

Danger! Tension! Sexy times in a number of places! All good things.
