Product DetailsThe Education of Madeline (Plum Creek Book 1) by Beth Williamson
Madeline Brewster practically owns Plum City, Colorado. But at thirty-two, she knows she has missed any chance for happiness. Until she finds a tall, strong, handsome Irishman on the wrong end of the hangman's noose. Suddenly this unconventional woman comes up with an outrageous idea...Teague O'Neal has rugged cheekbones, tousled black curls, and eyes as blue as the sky, even if he is caked in Colorado mud. The men insist they caught him horse-thieving, and there's something desperate about him that says he'd do anything for a buck. Maybe it was pure chance, or maybe it was something more that brought Madeline and Teague together. But one thing's clear, between a woman who has just about everything she could ever want, and a man who's lost that and more, they might find something in between worth living for.

This was a very HOT western romance. It had an intriguing storyline. The heroine is very wealthy but very single and has no prospects because of her size (she is 6 feet tall). She enlists the aid of a man who is being tried for horse thievery but claims that he is innocent. He is taller than her and she wants him to teach her about sex. But then they also have to deal with two men in town who want her money and are discrediting her name to get it. Great storyline, very in depth characters, definitely recommend if you want a hot western.

Product DetailsClaiming Their Mate (Feral Attraction Book 1) by Paige McKellan
Jules Kingston is a WereLion destined to be the next Lioness of the White Sands Pride. Her fathers, having decided to step down as Leos, have put out a call for a pair of lions to mate with their daughter. Before settling down with mates and a litter of cubs, though, Jules wants to spread her wings.

Of all the Lions in the Pride, Gabriel and Lucas Beckett are the only two who make her panties wet-and the last two she would ever take on as mates. When the brothers stake their claim, she runs, cursing her hormones for reacting to such prime specimens of her species.

Gabe and Luke have known for years that Jules is meant to be their mate. The trick will be to convince their woman she belongs to them. As expected, Jules leads them on a merry chase.

Then a mate fight and hunt is called by a rival pair. To win Jules as their own, Gabe and Luke must prove their dominance over the Pride-and their woman.

This is a nice erotic shape shifter story. It reads almost like a prologue to a series (maybe it is and i just don't realize it). It is time for Jules to pick a mate whether she wants to or not. Gabe and Luke have already picked her, she just does not know it yet. Good storyline. It was not drug out at all and I liked the emotional aspect that was addressed. I liked how the boys admitted that they might have gone about things the wrong way. Because that is one thing that annoys me occasionally about the over Alpha male. I look forward to reading more by this author.

These both sound pretty good. I've seen a lot of stuff about Beth's work, but haven't read her before.

Then of course the lions - rowr! lol I love shapeshifter stories!

I have only read a couple of things by her,but what I have read i liked. She writes very hot westerns. If you like Diane Whiteside you would like Ms Williamson.
