A blacksmith who will do anything to protect her family, and the Amichai centaur shifter who fights by her side, even when it looks like they’ll have to fight an entire kingdom alone.

A coyote shapeshifter gets kidnapped by powerful vampire enemies. She must escape before her werewolf husband starts a war to get her back.

Another favorite, start with Moon Called if you’re new to the series.

A kickass heroine, the lion shapeshifter who loves her, and a whole host of awesome side character. This is the conclusion to one of my all-time favorite series. If you haven’t read any of the books, start with Magic Bites.

Full disclosure: Ilona and I are friends, but that doesn’t make her books any less awesome. :)
