Series Report: The Nightstar Shifters #1-5 by Ariel Marie

Posted March 10, 2022 by Angie in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

A quick warning: These books do include kidnapping, violence, mentions of rape, and death.

The Nightstar Shifters is a series of F/F Paranormal Romances featuring wolf shifters and their fated mates, whether they be human, witch, shifter, or other.

These books are super quick, fun, and a little bit cheesy! If you like fated mates and lady love, these may be for you despite their flaws. My only real complaint about them is that the dialogue is pretty bad. It’s quite stilted and awkward at times. But it doesn’t ruin the fun or the sexytimes!

The first book, Sailing With Her Wolf, is my favorite (so far), because it uses my second favorite trope: stranded together! Marley and Zara are suppose to be on a lovely vacation on Marley’s family’s yacht when a storm hits and leaves them lost at sea! Of course, the ladies must find a way to pass the time and keep warm. Wink wink.

The following two books have a more suspense feel to them. Protecting Her Mate has some rogue wolves roaming the territory and threatening Heather. Luckily, the human knows how to protect herself and her wolf mate! Meanwhile, Sealed With a Bite has an evil warlock out to steal Cora’s powers for his own and will stop at nothing to get to her!

Hers to Claim is my second favorite of the bunch, mostly because the dialogue was much improved! It was also super sexy as Mindi is a photographer who specializes in boudoir shoots, and Echo is a plus size woman who needs to let her inner sex goddess out!

Wanted by the Wolf was another enjoyable addition to the series. This time following single mother, Skye, as she escapes from her son’s evil grandfather. There, Ricca is tasked with protecting her while the alpha handles the issue. Obviously, being in forced close proximity has her wolf claiming Skye immediately. I really liked the additional world building we got in this one.

Wolf shifter, Marley Gerwulf, was protective of her human best friend, Zara York. Their friendship dated back to their sophomore year in high school. Throughout the years they had been glued to each other's hip, experiencing life together. When Zara broke up with her longtime boyfriend, Marley suggested a three-week girls trip, sailing the Pacific Ocean. It would help her friend clear her mind and celebrate her newly found single life.

Marley had spent the last fourteen years of her life, knowing they'd only ever be friends. Her wolf had identified Zara as her mate the day they'd met. The urge to mate was strong, but she was always able to overcome it, knowing she'd rather have Zara in her life as a friend, then not at all.

After setting sail with Tahiti as their destination, an intense storm caught them off guard damaging their yacht. Floating aimlessly along in the ocean, Marley is determined to ensure their survival. With life or death situations at every turn, will Marley be able to protect Zara while resisting the call to mate?

A wolf shifter. A witch. The mating call is too strong to resist. Will they act on what was destined to be?

Adelina Ransome was tired of being alone. She longed for the day fate would present her mate to her. Addy was prepared to do what she must to find the one person meant for her. But before she put her plan in place, fate handed her a gift in the form of a midnight-haired, curvy witch.

Finding her mate wasn’t supposed to be this easy.

Convincing her to succumb to the pull of destiny shouldn’t be hard.

Cora Latimer was on the run. Finding the other half of her soul wasn’t expected. As much as she wanted to act on the instincts driving her to Addy, she couldn’t.

There was a crazed warlock hunting her down. Cora couldn’t risk the love of her life, but she vowed she’d protect her at all costs.

Will they give in to their desires and claim each other?

A stubborn wolf. A curvy bear. A sizzling attraction neither of them could ignore.

Mindi Martin wasn’t thinking of settling down. Something was in the water in Howling Valley, driving everyone to find their mates. She was determined to dodge that bullet, but then she met gorgeous, curvy bear shifter, Echo Norden.

And her wolf made plans of her own—claim Echo.

Echo was convinced she’d never find her mate. In all of her years, she hadn’t met anyone worthy of her bear’s affection. Her beast was headstrong and wanted a mate who was her equal. One scent of a beautiful wolf shifter and Echo knew one thing.

She’d found her mate.

Two problems were standing in her way. Her clan did not approve of Mindi as a suitable mate, and she was betrothed to another.

The call to mate was overpowering the two women. Nothing was going to stand in their way of what fate had in store for them. Together they would face anyone who would dare try to keep them apart.

One scent triggers a wolf’s craving. Two humans needing protection. Fate is about to intervene yet again.

Skye Lennon was on the run for her life. A civil war had recently broken out amongst the wolves and humans in her hometown. Death and violence surrounded them, making it no longer safe for her small family. Her son’s father was now dead, and they were being hunted by his pack.

Howling Valley was a town deemed safe for humans.

She arrived and was welcomed with open arms by the new alpha and a certain enforcer.

Ricca Radcliff was a wolf who desired more in life. She was tired of the desk job and the steady day-to-day work. She was meant for more, so she applied and was accepted to join the elite enforcers of her pack. Defending those in need was her calling. After intense training, she was finally awarded her first job.

A protection detail.

Simple enough.

One whiff of the tantalizing human and her wolf immediately wanted to claim her.

Skye belonged to her.

Ricca was going to have to prove they belonged together and she could keep them safe. Even if she had to fight an entire pack alone, no one would take her woman from her.
