Book Review

As I might have mentioned in my review of book one in the ‘Lubirea Mai’ series, I discovered this series because the author expanded upon a short story written in an anthology that I read. Well, ‘Conn’s Happiness’ is that short that has been expanded and since I enjoyed it before, and am really liking the whole series so far, it stood to reason that I would want to read this version.

Conn is a tiger shifter living in Montana and running his ranch when his mate stumbles into his life. Literally. Aisley is on the run from his father and his wolf pack, injured, bleeding, starving, and weak, when he comes across Conn in a small town. Aisley is the little brother to Bug, featured in Stormy Glenn’s novella ‘Papa Bear’s Pup’, and if you read that then you know what kind of a sadist their father is. Conn doesn’t waste much time claiming Aisley after his little wolf has healed from the damage done by his father and his enforcers. They are both shocked to discover they are lubirea mai mates which, in addition to a stronger bond, means Aisley can bear Conn’s cubs.

The next month is full of sex and love. Mostly sex, though, as the beginning of the lubirea mai matings, and then after they are bound by the council, pretty much ensures desire running rampant every moment of the day. Of course, it doesn’t take long before Aisley’s father and his enforcers track Aisley to Conn’s ranch. Now Aisley just has to survive the battle, protect his mate, and keep his - what the hell - cubs alive. Easy-peasy.

I am so happy the author decided to expand the original short story. Conn and Aisley are absolutely adorable plus I got the added benefit of seeing Bug and Bear again. I’m having a lot of fun with this series and looking forward to the next installment.
