About the Book

Simon Le Beau desperately wants two things: to help his fellow service veterans and have a baby with his beloved mate, Rose. His experience of being stuck in wolf form has spurred him into action. He has no idea how to start a charity, but he’s determined to figure it out. And his friend, Mark, is just the man to help him.

Rose Le Beau loves her mate, but babies terrify her. What does she know about babies? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Tragically wounded, combat veteran Mark Anderson has a lot of time on his hands. No longer able to serve his country and suffering from PTSD, he’s bored and at his wits end. That is, until his conversation with Simon. What had he been thinking when he offered to be one of the singles auctioned off? A date, he’s okay with. Anything more sends him into a panic attack.

Sharon Lejeune is tired of being set up with losers in the hopes she will find her one true mate. Her intuition is screaming that something big is about to happen. She just didn’t expect that something big to be her mate. Who knew a shifter could purchase a mate at a singles auction?

Will Mark’s insecurities destroy his chance at happiness?

Will Sharon lose her one true mate to PTSD?

Even if she wins her mate’s heart, would he survive the conversion?

Can Simon’s love and desire for a child convince Rose that babies aren’t something to fear?

To the Le Beaus, family is everything. Together, there isn’t much they can’t overcome. Have they finally met a situation they can’t solve?

NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. The series centers on New Orleans Billionaire Wolf Shifters with plus sized BBW for mates. It also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, a Marine, 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.

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Simon & Rose: Mark Anderson’s Story by VA Dold for the purpose of an honest review.

It is always a pleasure to read and review a book by VA Dold and Simon & Rose: Mark Anderson’s Story is no exception.

Ms. Vold has once again created a beautiful story of love and mates found forever by introducing us to Mark Anderson and his mate, the beautiful Sharon Lejeune. Only this time our sexy human mate is a former marine suffering from a partial leg amputation and severe PTSD.

I’m amazed with the insight Ms. Vold has into the signs and symptoms of PTSD. The use of a service animal to assist Mark with the panic, flashbacks and nightmares adds a depth to the story that really touch my heart. Rizzo is a wonderful addition to this story.

The need for service animals for America’s veterans is also addressed by the advent of a charity to provide PTSD dogs to those in need, supported by the Le Beau’s. What a beautiful tribute to our service men and women who come home with PTSD so severe it can leave them incapacitated.

Additionally, Simon and Rose have their place in this HEA, but I don’t like to tell another’s news. I’ll let Rose make her announcement, but you’ll have to read this book to find out exactly what it is.

Once again the characters are loveable and well developed and I can’t wait to read the next, but hopefully not the last, book as Ms. Vold teases with brief look at the prologue for book seven in the Le Beau Series, Seth.

I highly recommend Simon & Rose: Mark Anderson’s Story by VA Dold and give it five steaming hot Room With Books coffee.

Krystal Le Beau hides a secret few know about: she is a psychic matchmaker. Little does Lucas know she’s worked her magic and set him up to meet his destiny.

Lucas Le Beau’s dream has come true. He owns a ranch of his own and he’s moving in. He thought he had everything he wanted…until the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen knocks him flat on his back. Now he can’t think of anything but making that sweet redhead his own. Lucas is one determined wolf! He’s not giving up on Kensie no matter how stubborn she is.

Kensie Brown is visiting her sister Jojo, and so far, she’s managed to flatten the owner of the dude ranch, make Jojo mad, and somehow fall for a damn cowboy, knowing she’s leaving in a few days. What was she thinking?

Will Kensie trust Lucas to save her when her life is threatened, and she has no one else to turn to?

Will Lucas get to Kensie in time to stop the man who wants to expose her to the world and destroy her?

Mix one stubborn Yankee workaholic, a determined cowboy wolf shifter, and meddling family, stir well and you have the recipe for a wild Texas ride.

Excerpt

It became glaringly obvious very quickly; men found her intimidating. She was too smart, too successful, too rich, too fat, and way too outspoken. Kensie never saw a reason to mince words, so she said it like it was. Apparently, people, especially men, didn’t care for that. Too flippin’ bad, she was too old to change now.

A quick look around told her the barn was behind the incredible house she parked in front of. From where she stood, all she could see was a huge hipped roof. That had to be where Jojo was. She estimated the shortest path was around the attached four-car garage. Straightening her sunglasses, she headed toward the corner with determined purpose. The sooner she located Jojo, the sooner she could get into air conditioning.

Distracted by the beautiful landscape, Kensie didn’t watch where she was going. She rounded the corner of the garage and ran smack dab into a solid wall. What the devil was that doing there? Wait, that wasn’t a wall – what the heck was that?

One second she turned a corner and the next she somehow slammed into what felt like a brick wall, which had no business being there. No. Not a wall, a solid, very masculine, man. A gigantic Minnesota oak of a man, who was going down hard, and regrettably, taking her with him. As much as she wanted to change her fate, there was no way to stop what was about to happen. For a split second she considered yelling timber. She was screwed, and unless her calculations were terribly off, she was doomed to land in a very awkward position.

 After what felt like a lifetime, the manly oak hit the ground hard, with her splayed across him in a very unladylike, very sexual, way.

Good lord! I killed him! “Shiznit!”

About the Book - Copy

When Dr. Marjorie schedules an ultrasound for Anna, Cade begins to go into paranoid meltdown. Something must be wrong! He’s sure of it.

Seeing his daughter on the computer screen, larger than life, sets Cade onto a path of foolish, well-meaning choices. In a state of panic, he instigates a series of disastrous projects with the help of Simon, Stefan, and Thomas.

The final disaster lands Cade and Anna stranded on the family’s island with Anna in labor and no help in sight.

Excerpt - Copy

Cade crept into the house as quietly as possible. Anna had been up all night. Worrying over the ultrasound had compounded her insomnia, and she was finally getting some rest. If his luck held out, they could get the painting done before she woke up. Setting the paint cans on the newspaper he had spread over the carpeting, he looked at the closed window. He’d better crack all the windows, so the smell of paint didn’t wake her either.

The quiet sound of a tiptoeing army let him know the guys had arrived. Keeping them quiet was going to be a challenge.

“Hey, Cade,” Simon whispered.

“Hi, guy’s. Thanks for coming. We don’t have a lot of time, so let’s try to hurry. Simon, could you start taping the trim?”

“Sure.” Simon dug the painter’s tape from the shopping bag.

“Thomas, could you cut in the edges?”

“Cool, my favorite part of painting.”

“You’ve done this before?” Cade asked.

“Sure, haven’t you?” Thomas asked over his shoulder as he grabbed his supplies. Suddenly, he straightened and spun around. “Oh, shit! Please tell me you know what you’re doing.”

“Well…the guy at the hardware store told me what to do and made sure I had all the brushes and stuff. We’ll be fine.”

“Shit,” Thomas hung his head in defeat. “We’re going to die.”

“Oh, come on. Quit being dramatic and get painting.” Cade scowled.

“Okay, but when she goes atomic, rabid wolf on your ass, I’m laying all the blame at your feet.”

That thought had Cade hesitating for a moment before he shook his head.

No, this is a good idea, he thought, as he convinced himself to follow through with his plan.

Shaking it off, he turned to Stefan. “Take one of these pans and fill the end with paint and start rolling it on. I’ll work on this wall with another roller. The hardware guy said paint at angles, so we’ll do that.”

Stefan rolled a few random stripes on the wall before he pulled the roller away and stepped back to eye the paint. Frowning, he looked at Cade. “This looks really bright. Are you sure this is the right color? It looks – neon.”

“The sample was really pretty. Just keep painting and allow it to dry. It will look different than when it’s wet.”

Stefan eyed the wall again. “All right, if you’re sure.”

He was still looking at Cade’s wall as he walked backward toward his own. A squeak broke from his throat as he stepped on the slippery lid of the open paint can. Catching air, his feet flew from under him as he went down hard.

In his panic to stop his fall, he jerked the newspaper the open can was on. Like a teeter-totter, as Stefan went down, the can went up. The paint sailed in every direction. Nothing escaped the airborne, psychedelic pink destruction.

Book Review - Copy

It is my pleasure to read and review Cade & Anna by V.A. Dold. Cade & Anna is the first book in the Le Beau Series HEAs. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Cade and Anna are expecting their first child and Cade proves to be a mostly inept expectant father, filled with trepidation and brilliant ideas on ways to “surprise” his mate, Anna. It will be pure delight to watch how Cade handles daddy duty as his little princess grows up!

V.A. Dold has managed to tickle my funny bone, scare the snot out of me, and fill my eyes with tears during this wonderful addition to the Le Beau Series. It will be amazing to watch the already mated couples as the HEA additions unfold.

I highly recommend Cade & Anna by V.A. Dold and give it five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee!
