Kindles in the Wild – Shifter Marked – Eliza Gayle – March 8, 2022

After spending the night in Hagerstown, we headed to Frederick for the day. This town has those sacred items that all dancers need…. pointe shoes, not to mention the fantastic small town feel and picturesque views of the water.

We visited on a Sunday morning, so a lot of the shops were closed. But it’s the perfect little kitchy town where you can find knick knacks and one-of-a-kind gifts. Plus there is everything from ice cream to gluten free when you are ready to take a break and enjoy the cuisine.

The book for this location is one of my favorite series starters. The town they are from is a little bit more of a hole in the wall but the author created fantastic characters, and kept the intensity high with action and danger galore.

If you are a shopper of not, you will enjoy this sweet little town with its many offerings, and not too far from the Baltimore Metro area. And if you are looking to go down the series rabbit hole? This is the perfect book to find the path with.

Happy Reading

Author Eliza Gayle

She's about to meet her mate. A wicked hot and surly shifter guardian who is strictly off limits. Which means things are about to turn very bad...

Lucas Gunn has been kidnapped, examined and tortured.

His only remaining tie to the outside world is in his dreams and the incredible woman who appears in them nightly.

He thought she was nothing more than a figment of his imagination. Then she came for him.

Kira MacDonald is in trouble… Her psychic ability to “see” things has gone haywire. She’s being plagued by false visions and dreams of a man she’s never met.

She’s desperate for a cure, which means finding and bonding with a mate. Something she fears more than losing her mind.

Too bad fate has other plans for her. Plans that include her rescuing one dark, controlling shifter.

Passion and Pride. Duty and Danger. In the end, there's really only one choice...

Official published review:

In my sight

The author blasted right out of the gate with this series starter! The characters are well written and so relatable, and the emotional and physical upheaval they experience throughout the book made the HEA that much sweeter. I love how these two meet and the way they faced danger, betrayal, and family drama enriched the story. This book was amazing and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
