Welcome to the New World...... Irish born jaguar shifter Niall has been in the US for thousands of years now, he came aboard one of the first ships to sail full of shifters to the new world after the great war between Magical supernaturals. He has adapted to life in this century ad enjoys the single life with a rough and tumble and nothing more, but his beliefs and thoughts are still as in the old world. He still believes that woman should be seen and not heard as the saying goes, until he finds a sassy modern day she wolf that is. Sarai and her uncle have been captured by vampires that have found a way to siphon the magic in shifters and mages and are saved by the charming Niall who soon finds that he has to relinquish his old ways of thinking if he wants and he finds that his jaguar wants, after centuries alone, to be mated to Sarai. Sarai will not sit back and be ordered around by any male, she will be heard, she will be in the war that awaits them by her mates side.

Original. That's what I think of when I think of Ann Gimpel. It doesn't matter that I have read thousands of shifter romances because I know this one will be different. The character building is superb and that makes it very easy to connect. Niall is the perfect sexy, playboy, jaguar shifter, and Sarai is a sassy, smart wolf shifter. When they are together the sparks fly off the pages. Their chemistry is instant and smokin' hot! The world building is also fantastic, just what I expect, and it kept me captivated. I didn't just read this book, I became immersed in it and lost all sense of time (don't read at bedtime if you have to get up in the morning). The story is fast-paced, drama-filled, action-packed, sexy, humorous, and engrossing. I highly recommend this book to all paranormal lovers, romance or fantasy, and I know you won't be disappointed.

Another great series begins. In this first book of the authors newest series, we meet Naill, a jaguar shifter, working as an EMT. We also meet our heroine, Sarai, a wolf shifter mage living with her family on a secluded ranch away from humans. During an emergency call for a multiple car accident, Naill scents a unusual melding of shifters and vampires, something that is highly unusual as these groups do not gather together. Along with their smell is a scent of evil magic - what the heck is going on? If you love reading excitement, mysteries, the paranormal and some hot romance, this book is definitely for you. Learn what Naill discovers and how Sarai is involved and what together they must do to save everyone from the Vampires.

What a great start to a new series by Ann GImpel! This is a novella so its a short compact read. I loved Niall, he is a paramedic (shifter, jaguar) and he uses his magic in helping. Niall stumbles across shifters (Sarai and her uncle) who are being held by Vampires. That shouldn't be happening, they are shifters, how did the Vamps get the capacity to capture them and use their magic. There is mystery, intrigue, romance. There is a whole lot more, but this one makes it hard (for me) to review without leaving spoilers. I am so looking forward to this series. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was the lucky recipient of this arc and was not asked, or expected to leave a review.

This book is part of the Zodiac Shifters series and is the first book in the Wylde Magick series. The book can be read as a standalone. There is violence. The sex is hot and steamy so definitely 18+. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining what is going on in the world. This is not your typical vampire and shifter story. The storyline will keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted.

Niall is a Jaguar shifter born in 1563 with an Irish brogue he has managed to keep all these years. To keep himself from going stir crazy he works as a paramedic. On the job he comes across a really bad accident caused by bed Magic. After saving who he could he goes back later on to investigate. Sarai Lurie is a wolf shifter born the USA she is considered young by her kind at 50. One night a group of vampires take her captive. They kill her aunt Marie but she still has her uncle Stephen and there doesn't seem to be away out. Until! Lol yea your going to have to read to see what happens . It's a great story! I love the new twist Ann Gimpel gave to the shifters magic. She has it in her other series too bitter harvest. It's set in a dystopia urban fantasy world I loved that series too. Oops back to this book lol strong kick butt women meet strong kick butt men and sparks fly. Love the characters, the action is great, it has drama, mystery, intrigue, and betrayal. It has it all. I didn't want it to end and hope there is more planed because the world she created it fantastic. Don't miss it. Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it.
