More doings in Tarker's Hollow: If you are familiar with that college town, you'll know there are a lot of PNR things happening around. But don't worry if you aren't familiar, this story stands alone. Dulcie was a Real Estate agent and a shifter, an insecure woman with a cheerful personality. That very thing is what drew Van, a shifter himself. He was special, but of the k9 variety. He couldn't quite figure out her animal. He wanted the human side and he planned to have her. Then their first kiss was interrupted by a murder. The mystery solver female had a case to figure out. Their romance is rocky, strewn with problems, enemies, and plenty of steam. I loved the story both the supernatural part and human characters. There is a threat to Dulcie unlike any I've read. The bad guy poses so many dangers to her. Can Van protect her while wooing? Will they find a life together? I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

Dulcie & Van are on the case... I received an ARC of "Hounded" from the author, in exchange for an honest review. I already am a fan of Tasha's previous books, so I jumped at the chance to read this new book from her. But not only that I was intrigued with the concept behind this collection, the "Woodland Creek" collection is a collaboration of 30 authors all writing about 1 little town in Indiana USA... I couldn't wait to read what Tasha came up with for this town. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop... this was EVERYTHING I've come to expect from Tasha. Strong leading characters, shifters & magic everywhere, & a mystery to solve.... Although you found out at the start our leading lady Dulcie was a shifter & could sense things, we didn't actually find out just what she was until near the end, when Van made her feel happy about her shifting ability. Of course we have some very thorough back stories too. What a mystery Dulcie & Van solve, it kept me riveted to my seat, eyes never leaving my ereader, it always kept me guessing. I only wish it was longer, but everything we needed was in there, so I can't really complain (much). I can't wait to read what the others have written for the "Woodland Creek" collection.

Hounded Woodland Creek By Tasha Black ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I was given this ARC to read and give my honest opinion in a written review. I am a fan of Tasha Black I enjoy her style of writing. If you like shifter romance this is a story you will want to read. Its fast paced and flows well. I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters are convincingly realistic and witty. Van is fearless and a valiant hero with an unwavering alpha protective instincts but some of his bad boy attitude shines through. Dulcie is a unusual shifter and because of what she shifts into she is a little afraid, but I think it's something her mother made her feel. But she is curvy, beautiful and a happy empath. WOW this is a amazing read!

What a great shifter story and different then most I've read which is always great! Dulcie is the local real estate agent and also an empath/shifter and Van is a shifter who's looking for a property but because of his past its not that easy. Having to keep seeing Dulcie isn't a problem for Van because he's very attracted to her and the feeling's mutual, though she doesn't think it is at first. When people are being murdered it's up to them to figure out what's going on because what may be doing the killing is an animal that's similar to what Van shifts into. There are lots of surprises during their investigation but the biggest surprise is what Dulcie shifts into. Another great book by this author. She never fails to disappoint and just like all her books she gives the reader an amazing story that you just don't want to put down. All the characters are great to read about and when you're done you just want to smile and find out what's next from her. Love shifters then this you definitely want to read. I received this in exchange for a honest review

Hounded is a new paranormal romance book by Tasha Black. In this book we meet Dulcie Alette, a real estate agent who has a sweet tooth and also happens to be an empath. Van Blanco is a sexy shifter who is trying to turn his life around. The attraction between the two is undeniable. But when a puzzling murder occurs, Dulcie must solve this murder before Van is held responsible. This is a fun and enjoyable read. The characters are appealing and engaging. The author does a splendid job in describing Woodland Creek and its residents. I do hope that Tasha Black has other installments planned for this series.

What a scrumptious absolutely fantastic book. Gobbled up the pages in about 2 hours. A smashing who done it with a paranormal twist. Everything that my heart desired was in this book. A hot shifter, an effervescent heroine and all the characters embroiled in a mouthwatering thriller the likes of any decent crime writer in the literary market. Tasha Black has shown us her versatility and that her writing style is eclectic. This standalone novel is perfect for anyone looking for a not so long read. It will wet your appetite and keep you guessing until the end. The plot was intriguing and the characters very believable. Ms. Black never ceases to amaze me and she certainly never lets me down. I am so curious now to what she is able to pull out of her hat! I was gifted this copy in return for an honest review.

'Hounded' is another phenomenal and uniquely original story by the talented Tasha Black. This page turner is so different from the mainstream shifter books I’ve ever read. The characters are well developed & engaging and the story-line grabs your attention from the start & holds it thru the end. Never a carbon copy and always surprises with cool twists and turns! I was glued to my seat & did not want to put it down whenever I had to and when I was done, it left me craving more! ... Even tho I was given an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review, I really did love this & I highly recommend it to all fiction lovers, as well as every book by this remarkable author :D
