Emerald Moon

A seriously sexy read that left me breathing hard. ~WildaboutBones- Bitten by Paranormal Romance

After reading Emerald Moon I hungered for the clean, refreshing, crisp air in her setting. Emerald Moon is a well written paranormal romantic story with believable situations and dialogue. I adore strong male characters with the capacity to be tender and loving without being push overs. ~Naunet - BlackRaven's Reviews

Turquoise Moon

Turquoise Moon is a serious, sensual and sometimes somber read and I loved every second of it. Ben and Jude are a concrete couple and their strong bond is evident from the moment they are introduced into the story. I enjoyed witnessing their interactions with each other and with Kara and I loved how well they all seemed to meld together. Every character in this story was so well developed including the bad guy. Kara was one of the most powerful heroines I have come across. ~TJ- Got Erotic Romance

Onyx Moon

Ann Mayburn's Onyx Moon is a shifter story that expands the boundaries of that genre in a delightful way. I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who also likes m/m romance, shifter tales, and a bit of a paranormal mystery set in a gorgeous tropical location. ~ Becky - Mrs. Condit Reads Books

Amethyst Moon

Marcus and Varshan are two of my favorite characters from the Prides of the Moon series so it was nice to catch up with them again. Noah is a perfect match for the two males. He is all male from his purple Mohawk to his tight butt. He is strong enough to dominate Varshan and enjoys being commanded by Marcus. Now that the three of them are together, I can't wait to see what happens next. ~Melissa - Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

Meet the Author

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead - though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else without using cringe-worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.

    Sabrina Wayne had gone three moon cycles without a mate and she knows she must find her mate soon as it is becoming harder and harder to find relief.

    Nick and Madeline Turea have been mated for eleven years but have yet been unable to find the beta mate that would make them complete.

The only thing Ben wishes for tonight is for someone to ease his spirit and take away the pain of all he has seen as well as the ache in his heart for the mate he left.

    Jude Mason was the brother of Axel a sadistic alpha killer but he was also mated to Ben. When Ben was forced to kill Alex, Jude was left devastated and could not believe what they were saying about his brother was true and swore to kill Ben should he return.

    Marcus hates magic and wants nothing to do with it but with the evil that is still loose Marcus knows he needs to find a shaman to help protect his people. When Marcus meets Vashan both are surprise by what they find but with the torments of their pasts still fresh how will they react will they find peace and be drawn together or will Marcus resist and drive them apart.

    Prides 1 - Amber Moon I love shifter stories and this was no exc

    Prides 1 - Amber Moon
    I love shifter stories and this was no exception, even tho it was a quick read, it was definitely hot, I felt the connection that these three, Sabrina, Madeline and Nick, were looking for.
    After a disastrous mating, Madeline and Nick are looking for their third to complete their bond, just as Sabrina is looking for an Alpha couple, her being a Beta, she longs for a bonding with shifters stronger than she is.
    Madeline meets her first and sparks fly, once they see they are compatible, Nick then will join them for a fireworks-type of a night. The story kept me turning the page, cannot wait to read the next installment of the Prides books.

    Prides 2 - Emerald Moon
    I love the 1NS shifter stories. The next installment is M/M and very hot. Ben has had to struggle with what he had to do years and years ago; his blind date is with Jude, someone from his past, whom he knew intimately. Ben feels what he did is unforgivable; Jude doesn't see it that way.
    Jude, an Alpha, has come looking for him to be his Beta and to prove he still loves him.
    Awesome story of second chance love of two tortured heroes, souls being reunited and lots of sexual tension.

    Prides 3 - Turquoise Moon
    The third installment of the Prides story has us delving further into Ben and Jude's lives. If they are to continue their Pride, they will need a female mate. Kara is searching for an escape to an arranged marriage to a horrible shifter, someone who spreads lies about her. In disguise she meets Ben and Jude, and knows they will know the truth as they can see into her soul.
    Kara is an Alpha in her own right, Ben the Beta has to meet her first to make sure that she is dominant enough for Jude, his Alpha. Their mating was very hot and sensual and the three create a very strong bond.
    I am very impressed at how strong Kara is, she what she has to in order to get out of a bad situation.

    Prides 4 - Onyx Moon
    What a way to have a 1NS, but to travel to Jamaica! Marcus is waiting for his possible mate, hoping to be able to find a shaman for his Pride and it appears the matchmaking service may have found him. A hang-up Marcus still has is that he is not sure he'll be able to tell if his possible mate will be using magic on him, because of the spell put on him and others by his last Alpha.
    Vashan is a great shaman; however, his people shun him because of his cat not being a puma but a jaguar. They meet and a bad misunderstanding has him running but Marcus pursues and apologies are offered. Two men baring their souls is possibly the best turn-on for me, loved this story and hope to read more about them in the next book.

    Prides 5 - Amethyst Moon
    Such great conflict in this story...Noah is a turned shifter, after a promise is made; he finds it hard to keep that promise that would bond him with his Alpha female, because he is gay. He turns to Madame Eve of the 1NS matchmaking service to find a male that he can bond with and then in turn that male will bond with his Alpha.
    Marcus and Vashan, from the previous story in the series, are looking for a female to complete their Pride and instead find Noah and are tremendously attracted to him. However, he is dominant and feels that he cannot submit to Marcus. Can Marcus make him understand how sweet submission can be? Check out the story to find out.
    This is probably one of my first M/M/M stories and I loved it and left me longing to read how they will all come together when Noah introduces them to Alpha Giselle.
