Synopsis (Goodreads):
They hunger for your pleasure. They growl for your touch. And in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling author 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. . .
Thoughts on Howl For It: Shapeshifting bad boys and the women who aren't afraid to go toe to toe with them.

Like A Wolf With A Bone -  Shelly Laurenston's shifters are ridiculously sassy. And I kinda love that. For all that she's considered the quiet one of the family, Darla can hold her own against anyone. Even Eggie Smith -- big, bad, and feared by most everyone.

The family dynamics made me giggle -- the stoic brothers, the sisters who bake when angry, the over-protective vibe poor Darla has to put up with, Eggie's acceptance that everyone is afraid of him. Darla and Eggie's courtship (or whatever you'd call it when one kidnaps someone for their own good) was a hoot. Everyone in this book is just sassy. And fun. And I like them.

Wed Or Dead - Double crossing, betrayals, lies, lies about lies, and a marriage between two people who couldn't be more different. Why, yes, I did enjoy this one. HOW DID YOU KNOW?

More than the setup on this one, I loved how devious Gage was. He planned for every contingency and he was fully aware of what he was getting into before he set it all in motion. I like a wolf who knows what he wants and goes for it. And the sexy times? THUMBS UP!
