By V.A. Dold
Le Beau Series
Four years ago, Richie met a group of Tulane freshmen when he saved one of them from a mugger.
Now the first of their menagerie is getting married.
Surprise of all surprises, Richie meets his mate, Piper, at the wedding in Missouri, of all places.
He didn’t expect her to be a bounty hunter or that her murderous prey had turned the tables and she was now the hunted.
Will Piper apprehend her bounty or will her bounty get to her first?
Can Richie save her from the death he foresaw in a premonition?
Injuries are mounting and time is running out.
NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. New Orleans Billionaire Wolf Shifters with plus sized BBW for mates. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. It also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, and magic. These are stand-alone books that create a series. They do not need to be read in order. Of course, the story is richer if the books are read in order.

As quietly as possible he slipped in and searched for an open seat. A hasty scan of the room showed only one vacant chair. Great, obviously he was the last person to arrive. Without causing too much disturbance, he walked to the front of the room and took his seat between Billie and Karen.
Piper’s gaze had swung to the double doors the instant they cracked open. She scrutinized the man slipping in. A relieved breath escaped the instant she got a good look at him, and verified it wasn’t Qball crashing the dinner. But for some reason, the stranger raised a flock of birds in her stomach. She never reacted to strangers so strongly.
She didn’t dare look too closely. The last thing she needed was this guy catching her gawking at him. Her aunt always said she started flirting the instant she left the womb. Flirting, my ass, she thought, shaking her head to herself. Her aunt never could tell the difference between profiling and flirting. She’d been profiling people her entire life. That was one of the reasons she’d gone into her chosen profession.
Experience taught her the best way to guard her heart was to thoroughly study the enemy and be prepared. And that was what she intended to do.
Too many of the opposite sex came armed with charm and playful banter. The problem was, most of the time the guy was faking it to get into the girl’s pants. But this guy looked like no one she’d ever seen. For some reason he didn’t fit her normal profile.
She glanced his way out of the corner of her eye as he took the empty chair at her table. His manicured five o’clock shadowed jaw was well defined and he had perfectly sculpted lips. But it was his eyes that captured her attention, a warm brown color with flecks of gold. To complete her assessment, she forced her gaze from his face.
Nice, he had a head of gorgeous dark brown hair. It wasn’t long by any means, just long enough to sink her fingers into. Where the hell did that come from?
Richie was relieved to see Helen, Karen and Billie were seated at his table. Thank Goddess, he had someone to talk to. He smiled brightly and was nodding his hellos when a delectable scent tickled his nose. He smelled the most mouthwatering crawfish boil – ever. He glanced at the woman across the round table, his breath hitched, and his heart constricted. Holding her gaze, his nostrils flared as he breathed her in.
Her eyes widened and she quickly looked around. She must have heard him telepathically and was searching for someone near who may have spoken. Odds were she didn’t understand what she’d experienced and was suspicious.
Frowning, she turned her attention back to the table. Then she caught herself and carefully straightened her napkin in her lap while she fixed a pleasant smile on her face. Satisfied she managed to appear outwardly calm, she glanced up and froze.
For the first time, she took in his entire face, where before she’d been analyzing each feature separately. The man who joined the table right before she swore she heard a voice in her head was gorgeous. Not just hot, but please God, let me strip him naked and lick him, gorgeous.
He must be an actor or a model. She racked her brain, but she couldn’t remember her cousin, Bob, ever saying he knew someone famous.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Richie from V.A. Dold in exchange for an honest review.
I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the entire Le Beau Series by V.A. Dold up to and now including Richie.
Richie by V.A. Dold was so worth the wait. As the saga continues, the cast of characters continues to grow, the mates continue to be revealed by the Wolf Goddess Luperca, and the tension never diminishes!
The action takes off from the very beginning of the novel when the next mate is revealed to Emma, the Queen of the pack.
Ms. Dold’s characters are enigmatic, tough and as interesting to watch as an ideally written HEA movie! They are always faced with the challenge of overcoming all odds and cultivating a forever after with only a few days’ acquaintance between mates.
The sexual tension is evident from the first eye contact, but in my opinion, handled with much more reverence than it would ever be handled were Ms. Dold’s books truly to be considered erotica. Yes, there is heat, but there is also great love and that is how I differentiate the two!
My only problem with Richie is that it ended too soon. I’m never ready for the story to be over before it’s done. Along comes the end and I’m left panting for more.
I very highly recommend Richie by V.A. Dold and recommend you buy it, immerse yourself in it tonight, and come back for the rest of the series if it isn’t already part of your well-loved, already been read, stack of books.
I give Richie by V.A. Dold five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.
