Publisher's Summary

This bundle includes A Pebble for Lewis and An Egg for Ansel

A Pebble for Lewis: Lewis has never been kissed.

Omega penguin shifters aren’t allowed any physical contact with an alpha until their Pebble Gifting Season, when alphas present a pebble to their desired mate. Lewis has always followed the rules.

Until he meets Todd. A polar bear shifter.

Everyone knows that polar bear shifters are unreliable players who don’t mate for life. But Todd is breathtakingly beautiful, with a body as big as a mountain and a head of thick, white hair. Lewis can’t manage to look away.

In Anchorage, Alaska, where penguin shifters and polar bear shifters have been at odds for over a century, even a friendship between Todd and Lewis is forbidden. But as Lewis’s Pebble Gifting Season draws closer, their forbidden friendship turns into a passion neither of them can ignore.

A Pebble for Lewis is a 37,000-word best-friends-to-lovers romance with a size difference, knotting, and MPreg of the penguin egg variety. It’s set in the same world as the Heron Manor series, but it stands alone.

An Egg for Ansel: Ansel has a thing for older men.

Specifically, his friend’s father Daniel, a penguin shifter who is surprisingly innocent for a 47-year-old man. Ansel probably shouldn’t flirt with Daniel. Or go on a date with him. Or send him photos that Daniel claims are “irresponsible.” But Daniel’s so cute when he blushes, and it’s just a bit of fun. Ansel’s learned that men only want one thing from him, and then they’re gone.

But Daniel doesn’t leave.

In fact, Daniel wants nothing more than to love and take care of Ansel. But Daniel is an omega, just like Ansel, and in polar bear shifter culture a “blood-bond” can only exist between two people who have a child that is genetically related to both of them. If he asks Ansel to be his mate, will he be able to make Ansel happy? Or will he be just one more guy who asks Ansel to settle for less than what he truly wants?

An Egg for Ansel is a second-chance age-gap romance with plenty of lace, cuddling, and MPreg of the penguin egg variety. It’s the second book in the Alaskan Pebble Gifters series, and will only make sense if you’ve listened to the first book.

Hilarious. Hot. Heartfelt.

Listening to this bundle was a fun , joyful and entertaining experience. I laughed , got hot and bothered , cried and everything in between.

Drew Bacca narration was outstanding. His comedic timing on point . He channeled and became the beloved characters Amy Bellows created in her must-read/must-listen Alaskan Pebble Gifters Series.

The narration production was faultless. It was a true pleasure listening to one of my top 5 , Shifter, Mpreg, MM , romance. series.

Few of the many things that makes this series special and addictive for me , it's the intricate , layered , detailed world-building and character growth. The perfect blend of mythology, legends, folklore and urban legends with likeable and relatable characters ; and romances based on friendship , hot AF steam , humor and love.

Kept me smiling

I had forgotten just how much I love Amy Bellows and especially the Alaskan Pebble Gifters Series. After reading A Pebble For Lewis, I waited for book two, but got busy reading other books. With this audio bundle I was able to reawaken all the feel good emotions from her writings. I won’t go into the plot, but will say if you love mpreg, shifters, low angst, sexy sweet times between two men… then you will love listening and reading these books and get the whole series! I’m already downloading the next two so I can listen to them while gardening! Do yourself a favor and get these! Enjoy!

I was given an ARC of this audiobook but am leaving a voluntary review.

Loved the audio version of the bundle of the first two Alaskan Pebble Gifters series by Amy Bellows! Amy has crafted such a fun and unique world here and the stories are wonderfully captivating. Drew Bacca does such a nice job narrating these!

Didn’t hold my interest

The narrator here didn’t work for me. This was my first listen to Drew Bacca & it seems to me that he would be better suited to children or YA books.

His narration style was very chipper & he used his high register a lot, which is something I don’t enjoy in my audiobooks.

As far as the story goes, it was simple and cute. I’m not sure if I would have enjoyed it more had I read it, but I think the narrator helped to make the story unimaginable, IMHO.

Thanks to GRR for a copy of this audiobook.

Great Bundle

Book 1: Lewis accompanies his omega father Daniel to a polar bear's jewelry shop to witness the removal of the mating necklace. Lewis finds the polar bear shifter Todd intriguing and it's obvious Todd is attracted to Lewis. They embark on a journey of love that covers six years and culminates in pregnancy with twin eggs and partnership following complicated penguin mating traditions.

Book 2: Lewis's omega penguin shifter father Daniel and Todd's omega polar bear shifter friend Ansel find each other much to their ultimate delight. Ansel had resigned himself to being partner less and saves for a sperm donor so that he could have a young one his own. Some of the most touching scenes I've ever heard/read yet including some scorching hot sexual intimacies between truly loving and lovable characters!

I received an ARC of this bundle for my honest review.

Cross species romance

There is something inherently adorable about the picture of a giant polar bear and a tiny penguin coming together. While I prefer the first story over the second, both are quite good and easy to listen to. Drew Bacca does a great job voicing these characters and the story. Also, quite a deal to get both audios bundled together.

Alaskan Pebble Gifters

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Review Copy of this book.

I really liked the narrator for this bundle. It was easy to tell who was "speaking" through out both books (especially important because the MCs from both books are important in both stories).

I really liked friendship between Lewis and Todd. They are sweet together and their relationship progressed in a way that makes it easy to see the love between them. Though there were still some serious communication issues as their relationship develops, but that makes sense as their cultures have some differences. I loved how seriously Todd took learning about penguin shifter culture, like the pebble ceremony.

Ansel and Daniel were a very different type of relationship. My heart had to ache for Daniel and what he went through with his Alpha. Ansel also has had his own issues with trying to find a relationship with someone who cares for him. The Daddy/boy kink isn't something that really appeals to me, and there was times where it felt a bit awkward between Ansel and Daniel. I'm glad they both got their HEA, but I did like the first story better.

So sweet and lovely

I've had these on my TBR ebook list but never got them read. Now, I'm so glad I got to listen to them brought wonderfully to life by Drew Bacca. I knew he'd make a perfect polar bear but had no idea I would love his penguins so much. All the characters were perfect. The stories were amazing. Just imagine the challenges and the fun of getting a penguin and a polar bear together in sort of Romeo and Romeo fashion and then there is the age gap story (possibly my all time favorite trope) with Ansel and Daniel. Daniel's patience and care for Ansel and his determination to stay melted my heart.

Nice mpreg bundle!

I enjoyed both stories. Alaskan shifters in love. Todd and Lewis, from friends to lovers. Shifters from different worlds find their one and making a family. And Daniel and Ansel with their difference in ages also found love in a beautiful place. Great listen!

Sweet and Hot!

4.5 Stars

Sometimes you just want to listen to a book that's just low-angst and fun, like this bundle is. I loved that A Pebble for Lewis and An Egg for Ansel were interconnected enough that it made the change from one book to the next feel pretty seamless.

Both stories were hot and sweet in their own right. I loved Lewis and Todd and Daniel and Ansel. I loved how different their stories were, but how heartfelt and endearing at the same time. It was a different take on shifter mpreg from anything I've read so far, so that was nice.

Drew Bacca always does a great job with his narrations and this bundle was no exception. His voice is pleasant and he has a great range of voices and comedic timing.

Very recommendable!

A sweet set of mpreggy romances

A Pebble for Lewis: 4/5

Lewis and Todd's shifter romance was really sweet, and I especially loved that I got to experience several stages of their relationship. When Lewis and Todd first met, I had no idea what to expect from their romance. As two different shifter species, they grew up with entirely separate cultures that didn't mingle often. I was excited about seeing Todd and Lewis bridge the cultural divide to be together, but I wasn't a fan of the way polar bears and penguins looked down on each other. So much of this story centered around the stereotypes each shifter had, and it did get frustrating to hear Lewis and Todd talk in circles about how they couldn't possibly be together because of their differences. I wanted the two of them to actively find ways to be together instead of setting themselves up for failure, and while they did eventually get around to that it took much longer than I wanted. Once they had decided to openly date each other, this story was much more enjoyable for me to listen to. It was fun to see Lewis and Todd take part in each other's courting customs, and seeing their friends and family come around to their pairing made it even sweeter. I wasn't expecting this story to continue all the way into Lewis and Todd's parenthood, but it was a fitting way to demonstrate just how serious they were about each other.

An Egg for Ansel: 5/5

Ansel was such a flirty, spirited guy in Lewis and Todd's story, and I was really curious to see how his own romance would unfold. His story was every bit as lively and fun as Ansel himself, and I loved the way he shook up Daniel's world. Sure, he and Daniel didn't have a long-running history together, but that only made me feel closer to them because I got to experience every aspect of their changing relationship. From Ansel's lacey lingerie to Daniel's unexpected nurturing side, these two were absolutely adorable together. To my delight, this story focused much more on the relationship than the fact that these shifters were from different species. It was such a joy to see Ansel and Daniel grow together, and the fact that their relationship survived huge changes to their personal lives made me sure these two were committed to each other. Just when I started to think there was no way Ansel and Daniel could have the family they'd dreamed of, Todd came through with a bit of magic to ease the way. As if this story wasn't sweet enough, seeing how happy Daniel and Ansel were to be parents made my heart melt into a puddle. I can't imagine a happier ending for this couple, and I know their bond will stay strong forever.

Loved them both

I loved both these stories. That's saying something, because I usually avoid age-gap, and they are not one of my go-to tropes. I loved Daniel and his naivete. I was so sorry for him from the first book and the way his alpha abandoned him when he couldn't have any more chicks. How awful to face the grief of loss of your babies then to have a douche-bag mate abandon you! I felt for Ansel, too, not having anyone see him as mate material. I liked both books, but I actually enjoyed the story of Daniel and Ansel more. I love the world. The nesting was so funny, especially with the desolation of the pillows. The stories are fantastic, filled with love and humor. I loved the way Lewis and Ansel became friends and not rivals.

Drew is a great narrator. He did a fantastic job with the voices and emotions. He gave each character a voice that really suited them. For example, proud and stoic for Daniel, and fun and flirty for Ansel.

Not The Norm For Penguin Shifters.

I Absolutely loved both books, I love Shifter, Alpha, Omega, Mpreg stories. Lewis and Todd's friends to Lovers, Opposites attract story was a joy to listen to and I also loved Daniel and Ansel's age gap, sons friend to lovers, Omega/Omega love story I am so pleased to have listed to both stories together as they are so closely linked with all four apearing in both books. Drew Bacca did a great job bringing the characters to life.

Nesting Fluff

The Alaskan Pebble Gifters bundle was an absolute joy! It contains the first two books of the Alaskan Pebble Gifters series: A Pebble for Lewis and An Egg for Ansel. Both books are a bit on the short side, but combined together in this bundle, it makes for a nice and smooth listen, and I thought really enhanced the story. These books are full of fluff and sweetness, but they also address serious issues about identity and autonomy. There is some angst in both books, but the little bit of angst is instantly swept away by the delightful and charming nesting scenes. I must say, I absolutely LOVED the nesting scenes (those poor pillows!) and the amount of good-natured humor that was infused throughout those tender moments.

The audiobook was narrated by Drew Bacca who does a wonderful job. He has a smooth voice that is perfect for both the penguin and polar bear shifters. The audiobook production was well done and it overall made for a fabulous listening experience.

Loved this Bundle!!

The Stories: I so really enjoyed these stories. I love the Heron Manor world. Todd and Lewis are so so cute together. The birthing scene was for sure a new experience. 😳 I was a little reluctant to hear Daniel’s story with Ansel but I’m so happy I continue. It was such a touching story with what Daniel went through in his previous relationship. Ansel is definitely what he needed. I will definitely continue with this series.

The Narration: Drew did such a great job making these character voices different. I was never lost on who was speaking.

A beautiful ballad about love and commitment!

I decided to read the ebook version of this audiobook because I was curious about penguin and polar bear shifters and WOW! The story trapped me immediately and I couldn't stop reading, seriously, my eyes kept reading and I simple couldn't believe how wonderful tale the author created. This book is a beautiful, witty and sweet ballad about breaking tradition in the search of true love, is about commitment and family and of course pebbles. After loving so much the ebook, I couldn't pass the opportunity to hear these amazing characters brought to life by Mr Bacca with a wonderful performance with his great acting skills. One of the best books I have read lately! I can't wait for more books in the series get brought to audio.
