What do you get when you cross a smoking-hot rock star with a sexy wolf shifter, then throw in a heaping dose of gothic fairytale enchantment? Aleigha Daniels is about to find out!
In a world where human-shifter relations are often volatile and riddled with unfair presumptions on both sides, Aleigha finds it difficult to trust. Fairytales are for little girls because in real life, men cheat. Something Aleigha knows all too well. There are no enchanted castles and no Prince Charmings who will sweep you off your feet. So when she's forced into interviewing the sexy, enigmatic, and eccentric shifter rock star, Morpheus Wolfe, at his creepy mansion out in the middle of nowhere, all Aleigha can see is the fear inside her own heart. And when circumstances trap her there, Aleigha begins a journey she never expected to take. What she doesn't know is that Morpheus has an agenda, and sometimes fairytales do come true.
About the Author
Lashell Collins spent the last twenty years of her life working in Veterinary Hospitals and Garden Centers. But whether she was surrounded by the adorable puppies and kittens she helped to care for, or by the beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, she constantly pursued her favorite pastime – reading romance novels and imagining herself as the heroine in each and every one of them! After losing a few people who were important in her life, she began writing in her grief and found it to be very cathartic. She started several stories in various genres, but none of them seemed to click for her, and they remained unfinished. Finally, a light bulb went on over her head! Since she really enjoyed reading romance novels, perhaps she would enjoy writing them too! Her first attempt was an epic love story, chronicling the rise and fall of a major rock star. It was full of sex, scandal and intrigue. And it was complete and utter crap. She closed her laptop and hung her head in shame. Then one day, after she had finished rereading one of her favorite romance novels for about the hundredth time, she opened up her laptop and tried again. And she hasn’t stopped writing since! All of Lashell’s stories are full of heart and romance, with smart dialogue and spicy sex scenes. She still loves writing about sexy rock stars. But she also loves writing about hot cops and hunky business men as well! When she’s not writing, Lashell enjoys reading, shopping, eating Chinese food, and riding on the back of her husband’s Harley-Davidson. She loves watching General Hospital and Grimm. She is a huge music fan and is completely obsessed with Slash. Lashell is a member of the Romance Writers of America. Drop her a line; she loves to hear from readers.

I enjoy shifter stories a lot and the title and brief description of this one made me buy it. I just could not truly get into it. Aleigha was the problem. Her Father is a famous TV journalist and reporter who promote unity and tolerance across species. Shifters are the second class citizens but are gradually being accepted fully. Anyway, she wants to be just like her Father and works as a reporter now. But at the beginning of the book she seems to believe the old hype of dangerous shifters who will attach you. She would never sleep with a shifter no matter how good looking. A reporter is to be open and unbiased as he gathers the information on the story but she is scared to do an interview and makes some disparaging remarks during the interview. (Spoiler) Morpheus Wolfe, the rock star, has seen her on TV and wants to meet her to see if she is as rigid and uptight as she seems. He manipulates a few things to get her to do the interview instead of her Father. He had a scheme in place to keep her at his place but changes his mind. His fellow bandmates carry out the plan without his knowledge. She changes after spending time with him but I just could not get over her actions in the beginning.
Lashell Collin’s Soul Stealer is off the chain!! I absolutely fell in love with this story. I believe that the story is really magical. The characters are well written with amazing depth. The descriptions of the scenes are wonderful. I felt like I was right there with the characters. Aleigha is strong, smart and sassy. Morpheus is amazingly talented, intelligent, soulful and hot. I love the way Lashell brought in actually history to the storyline when she was starting out the book. She did an excellent job of blending the past with her fiction. I think this novel is a MUST read.
Was it possible that Morpheus Wolfe wasn’t a beast at all? 5 GOLD HEARTS WOW!! What a FANGTASTICALLY romantic & PAWMAZING story!! This is my first Lashell experience and WHOA BABY!! What an experience it is! It is one truly FURRIFIC story that held me captive from the cover all the way to "And they lived happily ever after." hmmmmm, must be that shifter magic that everyone is talking about! Actually, it is all of that AUTHOR magic that had me mesmerized! Lashell is one SHIFTASTICALLY talented storyteller! As soon as I started reading, I became so intrigued with just how unique the story itself was that I didn't - couldn't - stop reading until I hit those two words most hated by any reader – The End! In fact, I stayed up almost all night to read it! I was too engrossed to even WANT to sleep! The way that Lashell made these shifters all her own was PURE GENIUS!!! All of their abilities, histories, variety of shifters as well as their shifting “powers” - it all ABSO-FURRY-LUTELY blew me away! Okay, the ENTIRE story did to the point that I was consumed by it!! I LOVED IT!!!! It all played out exceptionally different than I expected, but in ALL of the BEST ways PAWSSIBLE! What could easily have been a “creepy” part, was oh-so-beautiful, romantic and WOLFERRIFIC! The love that the guys have for each other, the way they look out for each other, the way they take care of each other was all so FURRY touching, FURRY, FURRY special and touched my heart making me melt & cry! I can’t wait to see them fall too! Fall in love that is! I bawled when...OOOPS!! I can't tell you without spoilers, but you will know the exact part when you get to it. And when I had finally calmed down and stopped crying...THAT happened and the waterworks started all over again! In my opinion, if I can get so absorbed into the story, where I feel both for & with the characters, where I feel like I am LIVING the story, that I have become one with it, then that is undeniable proof of just how WOLFTASTIC both the story is as well as how PAWSITIVELY genuinely gifted the author is! The backgrounds of the shifters & humans is well thought out, very developed and exceptionally fascinating! Add in the world building, species backgrounds, character development, as well as the creativity of it all as a whole, and you get one deeply enriched SHIFTACULAR start to this FANGTABULOUS new series by Lashell! I am 110% addicted already! I so cannot wait for more because there is at least 3 other guys whose stories are just begging to be told! Hmmm, Aleigha has a couple of friends who would die just to MEET the band, let alone anything else! ;) Only time & Lashell will tell! :)
