Blurb:  Marcus Galin has searched the world for a very special kind of werepuma—a beta who has also been blessed by the Goddess as a shaman. His prayers are finally answered when Madame Eve of the 1Night Stand matchmaking service arranges for him to meet a man in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica that fits his requirements. Only problem: Marcus is terrified of magic and doesn't know if he can overcome his fear enough to open his heart to a stranger that his Pride and his heart desperately need.

Vashan Dulphin has spent all of his life as an outcast among his people. By a twist of fate and genetics at puberty, he became a werejaguar instead of a werepuma, much to his family and Pride's disgust. Since then he has lived in solitude among his people, tolerated only because of his power as both a beta and a shaman. Desperate for a chance to find a home where he will be loved, he calls on the aid of Madame Eve, who sends him Marcus.

Together the men will have to overcome their fear and self-doubt for a one-in-a-million chance at love

Blurb: Noah Braxton's world has been turned inside out and upside down ever since the fateful moment six months ago when he was turned into a shifter by a dying college girl. She made him promise to look after her sister, Giselle, and in an effort to soothe her he promised her that he would, not realizing the sacrifices he would have to make to keep that promise. Bound by his oath, Noah struggles to fulfill his role of beta to Giselle, an Alpha female, but he can't be everything she needs. He's gay and in order to bond properly with his Alpha female they would have to have sex. Without that bond with an Alpha he is slowly going crazy but he can't force himself to be attracted to a woman. His last hope at saving his mind and his soul lies with Madame Eve of the 1 Night Stand matchmaking service being able to find him a male Alpha that can bridge the gap between himself and Giselle.

Marcus and Vashan have come to Morgantown, WV in the hopes of finding an Alpha female to complete their Pride. Instead they find Noah, a man on the edge of insanity who is also a natural dominant. Despite this both men are instantly drawn to Noah and decide to help him. Marcus will have to use all his strength as an Alpha to dominate Noah and show him that submission to his Alpha doesn't make him weak.

Inara and her husband of over a thousand years, Theron, are traveling through the human world, seeking out those that are in need of Inara’s special fay gift. Inara is a sorrow eater. She takes the grief of others and replaces it with joy. Giselle is in desperate need of Inara’s healing touch after the death of her sister and the rejection of her beta. Together they will try to fill each other’s needs and desires, but only if Giselle will once again open her heart to the greatest force in the universe, love.

~Series Review Books 4-6~

In books 4 -6 Ann didn't disappoint at all. Again her writing is simple exquisite. It's easy to get lost in the story and visualize every moment.

 Again, the books in series follow each other. So you see a character from the story star in the next. Each book spins an amazing story. Just like the first 3 books in this series in the last 3 you'll find action, betrayal, drama, romance, and smoking hot sex scenes! 

In book Onyx moon you'll meet a very different type of Werepuma, but I have to say Opal Moon (Book 6) is by far my favorite!

This is a fantastic series,I've only read a few M/M stories before this series, especially if you M/M and Menage! 

I give Books 4-6 of the Prides of the Moon Series 5 Stars!

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.
