Publisher's summary

My new boss awakened something deep inside me,
And it’s not just another hot flash.


When my husband ran off with our saloon’s hostess,
I left Montana, joining my college-aged son in Oregon.
Eugene’s a far cry from my little hometown,
But I did my best to blend in with the locals,
And tried heading out for a jog.
I thought I saw a hippie gathering deep into the trail—
Until they changed into a pack of wolves.

I screamed and ran for my life,
But my clumsy ass tripped and blacked out.
Now I’m waking up on a handsome stranger’s couch,
With zero recollection of what I’d seen.
Rex is intimidating and rough around the edges,
But something about him sets me on fire.

Things get even hotter when he ends up being my boss.
Too bad Rex is the only one who wants me around.
My coworkers at the rock club have it in for me,
And when they threaten me after work one night,
A nightmare comes to life before my very eyes.
In mere seconds, they shift from men to snarling wolves,
But I realize that nightmare is just beginning
When I look down at my trembling hands
And see snow-white paws instead.

Steamy shifter love scenes and an HEA inside! No cheating or cliffhanger in this standalone romance. Listeners 18+.

Fated Mates


I read this book previously and just as much as I enjoyed reading Forbidden Midlife Mate I enjoyed it even better on audibles.
Lori was helping her husband run the town bar when he ups and runs off with the saloon hostess. Lori leaves Montana and heads to Eugene to be near her son who is attending the University of Eugene on a football scholarship. Lori is out is jogging when she comes across a group of people who begin to howl and shifts into wolves. Lori takes off running, falls downs and knocks herself. When she comes to she has no memory of what happened. Lori sees the sexy alpha wolf shifter Rex who is the pack leader. Rex’s wolf has been acting out whenever he is near Lori and he doesn’t seems to know why. Lori lands a job and an event happens with her coworkers and Rex is there to rescue her along wolves of his pack and Lori’s memory of seeing wolves comes to life.

Will Lori be afraid of the wolves, will Rex realize why his wolf was acting out and realize that Lori is his fated mated, will Lori be ok being Rex’s fated mate?

Lori is kick butt

I really like Lori. She was a headstrong character that didn’t take and bull. A female over 40 looking for a new start stumbles on a group that are weary over what trouble she could cause. Rex is determined to keep his group safe but the pull between him and Lori steamed up my kindle.

I just might read/listen all the good parts again!! No cliff.

Forbidden Midlife Mate Shifter Nation: Marked Over

This is book 1 Marked Over Forty starring Rex and human Lori Jenson. WOW that was incredible and the way Lori keeps finding new stuff out about her town was intense and a little unsettling but you need the drama to really shake up the story and that helps with the spice of the relationship. I have to say I laughed when Lori tries to talk to her grown soon about things. This was a great mate match love story.

Slow burn shifter romance.

Lori has lost everything with her divorce and selling of the saloon she had owned with her ex-husband. She moved to Eugene to start over and be close to her son Connor in college. And accident on the trails leads her to Rex and secrets about herself she never dreamed could be possible.

Rex is busy running the Glenwood pack when a human is brought into his office. His wolf can’t seem to get enough of her, and he knows that this just won’t due. Fate keeps throwing them together and he give in to his desire. Some of the pack has other ideas.

This is a sweet slow burn romance between Lori and Rex. They have both lived some life and had given up on finding a HEA at this point in her life. There are twists in this story and surprises throughout. Great read for any time.

MIDLIFE

Rex and Lori. He as shifter. Shes Human. In this installment humans do not know about the shifter community. This is a slow sweet story about how they meet and became. Liked it but a little slow.

Great Series Starter

This was a great start to a new series. The characters were entertaining while the story line was engaging. Elle Sonali did a great job of breathing life into the story and made this as fun to listen to as it was to read.
