Overview

Rae has a secret — one she can’t allow any wolf pack to discover. But with an old enemy hot on her heels, she has no option but to trust Zack, the man from the wrong side of the tracks. Taking off on the back of Zack's Harley seems like good idea at first, but when she lowers her defenses for the captivating coyote shifter, she might just be risking it all.

The new she-wolf in town may be strictly off-limits, but Zack just can’t keep away. When the thrill of the chase gets his blood pumping in more ways than one, he’s ready to overstep every boundary and break every rule. Destiny says she’s his—but the pack’s ruling alpha says she belongs to another.

There’s more than meets the eye on Twin Moon Ranch, home to a pack of shapeshifting wolves willing to battle for life and love.

* A paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect read for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, bad-boy bikers, red-hot cowboys, romantic westerns, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, and fantasy romance! *

**Read this as part of the Masters Of The Hunt: Fated and Forbidden Box Set** ~ 5 Desert Hunt Stars ~ Desert Hunt is the prequel to The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series by Anna Lowe. Wither you read the series in order or out, you will fall in love with the characters and world. Fabulous! Amazing! Another winner! ALowe is an amazing writer. This novella has everything I have come to love from ALowe. Amazing characters, great plot and world, conflict, and romance. I was pulled in from begging to end. We are introduced to some amazing characters that are well defined and easy to connect with. I became so involved that I felt for each and everyone wither they where the secondary characters or our leads. Rae and Zack complemented each other. I enjoyed the lead up to Rae’s secret and learning about Zack. The plot is enjoyable and the world is interesting. I also liked seeing the characters in their earlier period. It foreshadowing to what is to come for some. Desert Hunt is full of suspense, action, and romance. I highly recommending picking up The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series. Each book is unique and brilliant written. I can’t wait for more from ALowe. *Disclaimer: Review copy provided of Masters Of The Hunt: Fated and Forbidden Box Set with the sole purpose of an honest review.

Zack knows that the she-wolf is hands off but what are you going to do when you have 2 voices in your head telling you Mate, Mine! Rae is given to the Twin Moon pack but what they don't know is she has been hiding a secret all her life and it could cost her everything. I love this story and the series because the author writes the characters as the people next door to you and me. The flow of the story is great from start to finish. This is for any mature paranormal romance book reader who enjoys more in their stories.

Rae finally got her transfer to a new pack, but can this one be the place where she can settle down? Zack returns after a tracking mission to find the most lovely scent all over the place. When the scent turns out to be his Alpha´s intended mate, he doesn´t know what to do. Can he really resist his inner Wolf and Coyote? Quick read, shifters, action and smutty fluff in a great combo.

I love The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series and was happy to find out a prequel was being released that would share Zack and Rae's story. They're a part of the other books and certain points made me very curious about their path to a HEA. To save herself Rae escaped one pack and ended up in another that followed the old-fashioned ways and she definitely didn't like how things were ran there. She finally gets her chance to transfer to another pack, Twin Moon, but she isn't told the full story. Rae doesn't know it, but plans are made for her that will change her life forever. Thankfully, the other person these plans impact doesn't agree with them. Then we have Zack. He's always felt less than and kept himself somewhat separated emotionally from the others. Until Rae. They both feel the pull and don't fully grasp what it means until it's almost too late. What happens? What are the plans? Why is Rae so unique? I highly recommend this prequel and series. I can't wait to see who finds love next. *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*

In this we get Zack and Rae's story and what a great story. Like the other books in this series it's a strong story with strong characters, if you've read the others in the series then you'll meet up again with some of your favorites. Loved the conversations with Zach's coyote and wolf and Rae's with her wolf. They truly made the story even better. If you haven't read the others in the series you must there amazing books!! I received an arc in exchange for a honest reveiw

What's a shifter to do? Follow your head and do your duty or follow your heart and find your mate? In Desert Hunt, we meet Rae and Zack who immediately have an attraction toward one another. They also try to deny this pull for a variety of reasons: - Rae's had some bad experiences that make it difficult to trust. - Zack doesn't feel worthy of her. - Rae has a secret that could change everything - Zack's alpha seems to want Rae left alone- unless his son Ty decides differently. - a bad blast from the past returns to wreak some havoc Will they be able to overcome these problems and begin a life together? Or, will circumstances tear them apart? I started rooting for these two from word one. Read it and maybe you will too. * I received this as an arc in exchange for an honest review, but will state that I look forward to reading on in this series to see where these characters go from here.

This story was given to me by the author for an honest review. Anna Lowe does it again with another great story featuring Zack and Rae. Zack is a mixed breed loner. Half coyote from his Navajo mother and half wolf by a white American but absent father. He's the pack's tracker. He meets Rae who is all wolf with a special secret when she arrives on the ranch after asking for a transfer from her old alpha. Everyone is told to stay away but there's something that draws these 2 together. Only the old alpha of Twin Moons Ranch has plans that could put childhood friends at each other's throats. This story was a step back as it takes place before book 1 of this series. I'm always anxious to read the next book in this line-up.

DESERT HUNT-DANGER, SECRETS & SIZZLING ROMANCE! RAE: she-wolf, gorgeous, sexy, sassy, powerful; Rae has a special power that makes her vulnerable to be kidnapped by any pack for that power. There is a lunatic werewolf who wants to mate her and is searching for her. ZACK: tracker for the pack, is sultry, charismatic, protective, has an alpha personality, and is half-coyote-half-wolf. Zack is probably the most altruistic shifter you'll ever meet, always thinking of others but never himself, he also believes he is unworthy of mate because of his half-breed status. Rae comes to work for the Ranch hoping she is safe from harm. Ty orders Zack to make sure none of the male wolves stay away from her. FANTASTIC well-written heart melting read that takes you on a spine-chilling adventure that is action-packed with gripping suspense, horrific danger, and vivid scene descriptions that leave you breathless. The banter between Zack's wolf's half and his coyote's half is absolutely hysterical. Rae and Zack are definitely a force to be reckoned with and their romance is filled with unwavering devotion and sizzling passion. The conclusion is absolutely brilliant. I adored this story a most entertaining read. If you treasure shifter romance this is certainly a terrific book for your library. {I was gifted this book and this is my honest review.) In the world of shifter romance, the possibilities are endless and always fascinating. Without reservations, I recommend this book.

Desert Hunt WOLVES OF TWIN MOON RANCH By Anna Lowe ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Received this ARC to read and to give my honest opinion in a review. This is a SPECTACULAR paranormal romance with a lot of Thrills! The storyline is a compelling, exciting page turner that you can't help but to keep reading until you finish the book. The characters are captivating, engaging and written very well. Even the secondary characters are made to make this a awesome adventure. The dialogue is sexy and witty. I love reading Anna she is clever, imaginative and gives her readers a awesome adventure with amazing romance. After reading this book, I want to read every book Ms. Lowe has written! I absolutely adore and love reading this book. This book can be read as a standalone book, but it a start of a series that involves the Desert Moon pack. Ms Lowe story of a wolf shifter has been given a all time high with this storyline about a “mixed breed” and adding in a long-thought folklore in the world of the wolf shifter, and bringing them together as fate decided. Zack is a half coyote and half wolf hybrid shifter and one of the best tracker in his pack. He’s a loner but Ty is his best friend and there isn't much love between him and his alpha, because Zack happen to be one of the most powerful wolves in the pack. He bows his head in submission by appearances but in truth he doesn't really submit to anyone. Zack doesn't have a problem with having any number of she wolves to share his bed, but as with all shifters having a mate is another matter. Zack is set to guard Rae, but the problem is who will protect her from him. Rae is a she wolf he can hardly resist and he will do anything for the wolf of his heart even if he has to set her free. Rae has been running from one pack to another over for some years now. Rae is being pursued by some very self-important wolves that wants to mate with her. Rae has secrets that she feels she can't share and she thinks no one knows her secret it’s no longer the case, because her secret makes her a prized possession for any pack. But the Alpha of Twin Moon knows and thinks he can capitalize on the information. But there is always Fate steps in and it never go like you think will so when Rae comes face to face with Zack her fated mate, Of course there be a some slippery black ice on their way to HEA. I found Desert Hunt to be a compelling romance. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I read it in one sitting, because I couldn’t put it down. I like utilizing the read aloud/text to speech functionality in some readers. I love to listened while l read and let me tell you it's a awesome story and in audio I must say OMG! Desert Hunt is magnificent. The story is paced and flows so well. If you are in need of a fantastic paranormal shifter series to read this is the best one ( The Twin Moon Ranch series). If you enjoy reading shifter romance with suspense and lots of action this is a great choice for your TBR list. Highly I recommend this book and the series. If you believe in the world of paranormal romance, the possibilities are endless and fascinating!

Misfits that Match Rae has A SECRET THAT SHE THINKS NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT. She’s not just a wolf, she’s more. Zack is Wolf, Coyote, Navajo (Dine) and white man and if Rae would except it and trust him, he’s also her mate. Then there is Jed from her old pack determined to take her for his own and her current Alpha who plans on having her mate his son and heir, yet she and Zack don’t know this. Lots happens in this well written and wonderful self-contained story and yet it’s also the prequel to the Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series. Awesome read.

I started with book 2 of the Twin Moon Ranch series and quickly read books 3 and 4. When I start in the middle of a series, I normally don't go backwards. This time I did and I was not disappointed! This prequel was every bit as good as the other books I've read in this series. Anna Lowe writes wonderful stories with amazing characters and great story lines. Truly enjoyable books that draw you in and don't let go. I received a copy of this book for an honest review and this in no way influenced this review.

Title: Desert Hunt The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch The Prequel  Destination: Prequel, 199 Pages Author: Anna Lowe Reviewer:  Ingrid Stephanie Jordan #Paranormal  #WolfShifter #CoyoteShifter My Score  #5Stars  ☆☆☆☆☆ ☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆•☆ Well I kinda went backwards here, usually if I  start a series a couple books in I buy and read the first book. I started Desert Wolf and was sucked right in, so of course here I am reading the 1st The Prequel. Ms. Lowe has a way of putting the important characters in Twin Moon Ranch in this series. Rae is a Wolf Shifter, plus so much more, but she couldn't let it be known because Many wolf packs would keep her as their own and Rae was her own person. In her home in Colorado she started running from stalker Jed whose thoughts were to control her. Her running lead her to Nevada and was transfered to Arizona. There she realizes who she's meant for. Zach is half wolf shifter and  coyote shifter, he's also a damn good tracker too. Coming back to pack after being away for a week, things seem to smell different, plus Ty is acting funny. What going on here? Why are all the Wolves keep talking about the new girl? I was gifted this ARC for an honest and truthful review.

ebook (edit) Review After reading this book, I want to howl! The good kind of howling. I love this book, and hope to be able to read the rest in the series. This is a standalone book, but also the beginning of a series revolving around the Desert Moon pack. Ms Lowe has taken the wolf shifter to a new high with this tale, giving us a “mixed breed” and adding in a long-thought folklore in the world of the wolf shifter, and bringing them together as fate decided. They will have to climb over many obstacles before they find their HEA, if in fact they do. The characters are unique, showing both strength and weakness, and love in all forms. Rae has already been through more than a she-wolf should have to experience in her young life, but fate seems to grin upon her when she receives the transfer she's requested, finding herself sent off to the Twin Moon Ranch. Here, she meets Zack, half wolf, half coyote, but all alpha and all male. Her wolf knows he's her fated mate, but will all of the terror of her past over rule her chances at love? Zack has always been a loner, never fitting in with the rest of the pack because of his mixed breading. Will he finally find his niche in the pack? Will fate finally smile down on him and give him a mate to love and cherish? Loved this book, and definitely looking forward to more from this author. Well done! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Sometimes the hunt is all about love and life I began reading this series with Desert Wolf that is a few books into the series. I already knew I enjoyed the author’s writing style and the world she has built. This story is the prequel to The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series. Desert Hunt introduces us to Zack, the best friend of Ty from Desert Wolf and Desert Moon who is the heir apparent to the Twin Moon’s Pack. This story is about Zack and his fated mate. The problem?... Ty’s dad, the current alpha has decided the new wolf, Rae is to be Ty’s mate. Too bad someone forgot to ask Rae because this is one she wolf that isn’t going to be bullied into mating the wrong wolf. Not that Ty is jumping at the opportunity either. He’s too busy pining after some other she wolf. Rae has been on the go, bustled from one pack to another over the years. She has been pursued by all too many self-important wolves intent on mating her. Rae is also keeping secrets. She isn’t like all the other wolves. She thinks no one knows her secret. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. Rae’s secret could make her the prized possession of the right pack and the Twin Moon’s alpha is thinking he’s going to cash in. Fate has other ideas when Rae is put in the crosshairs of her fated mate, Zack. Their mating may be destined but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few rocky patches to get over on the road to happiness. A pursuing bad news alpha with grandiose plans from her past, the current alpha and his machinations along with a few misconceptions about Zack’s motives may set Rae to running. But will love bring her back? Zack is a coyote/wolf hybrid and the best tracker in the pack. He’s Ty’s best friend and the proverbial loner. Being a hybrid has ostracized him somewhat. There is no love lost between him and his alpha. At the same time, Zack is one of the most powerful wolves in the pack. He might bow his head in submission but appearances and true submission are two different things. He may have any number of she wolves to share his bed but a mate for him is another matter altogether. That is until he meets Rae. He may have been set to guard her, but who is going to guard her from him? This is one she wolf, he is powerless to deny and he’ll find he’ll do anything for the mate of his heart, fight, protect, even set her free. I found Desert Hunt to be a compelling romance. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It’s a fairly short read that I was able to finish in one sitting. Thank goodness because I really didn’t want to put it down. I like utilizing the read aloud/text to speech functionality in some readers. I listened to this one while on a longer drive recently. When an author’s writing is exemplary, it really stands out in audio. Desert Hunt was excellent. The story flowed perfectly. If you are looking for a paranormal shifter series to get into then check out the Twin Moon Ranch series. Desert Hunt is a great place to start. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
