Book Release Blast for Shared For Love by Nancy Corrigan (REVIEW)

Fans of sexy shifter stories will be drawn to this second installment in the Kagan Wolves series about a woman longing to make the neighboring pack strong once more and her plan to mate with the conflicted man torn between her and the man he's loved for years.  Keep reading to get a tantalizing taste of this steamy story about obligation and the power of love in Shared For Love by Nancy Corrigan, along with my impressions of it, and then add it to your bookshelf.

Their bond is heaven on earth...but it could tear their pack apart.
Ethan Jager is forced to hide behind a false identity as his pack mates suffer under Michael Tanner's rule. It's not his choice; he was born broken, without the primitive urge to breed driving him to pick a mate.
While his wolf sleeps, his heart has chosen for him: Noah, widower and fellow pack dominant.
Everything changes the day Hannah Kagan smiles at him. Lust awakens his wolf--a first. Hannah is beautiful, loyal, kind, everything an alpha male should want. And mating her will allow him to reclaim his pack. It will also leave his soul with a giant hole when he's forced to rip Noah out of his life.
Hard choices are required of alpha males, but choosing which lover to let go is one Ethan refuses to make. The alternative will not only change the pack, but transform their world...if he can keep his mates alive long enough to claim them both.


Ethan opened his eyes and met Noah’s focused stare. “For a long time, I’d convinced myself it was the lack of oxygen before they cut me out of my mother’s womb that made me gay."
Noah sighed. “You know that’s a load of crap. I’m gay too, and I—"
“You were mated, and I know you still get aroused for other women.” Ethan cocked a brow, daring Noah to deny it. His steady stare confirmed Ethan’s statement.
Ethan shook his head. “I never did, not for females or other males. I accepted it after a while. I even convinced myself you were my true mate. There was no other explanation for the way I felt around you."
“Then you met Hannah."
“Then I met Hannah.” Ethan closed his eyes once more and admitted the truth that had grown stronger in the days since he’d first looked into her eyes. “I’ve fallen in love with her too."
Noah closed the scant inch between them. His heat radiated along the length of Ethan’s body, stirring his lusts once more. He shifted to get away. Noah planted his hands next to Ethan’s head and his legs on the outside of Ethan’s, caging him in place.
Equal in strength, Ethan wouldn’t be able to escape without a fight. Some days he tried, just to trigger Noah’s need to dominate and Ethan’s desire to submit. Images flashed through his head. Ethan wanted to be held down and ridden hard, fucked until Noah exploded inside him and Ethan’s release coated his stomach. His breathing quickened. The hard dick pressed against him made his lust grow. He wanted to make the fantasy a reality.
I can’t. Never again. He pushed against Noah’s shoulder, not budging him. The shove tore a growl from Noah instead. Ethan curled his fingers. “Did you hear me? I love Hannah, and I will mate her. Together we’re going to rule the pack."
Noah grabbed Ethan’s balled fist and tugged it above his head. The hard yank whipped through Ethan, and his breath rushed out.
Noah rubbed his thumb over the pounding vein in Ethan’s wrist, sending tingles to skip down his spine. “I heard you."
“Good.” Ethan bucked, trying to knock him off. “Then let me go."
“Is that what you want?"
No. He wanted the impossible. “Yes."
Noah eased back but didn’t let Ethan escape. Noah slid his hand inside Ethan’s pants and stroked his cock. A shudder ran through him, and a pleased groan escaped Noah. He leaned in and skimmed his lips over Ethan’s cheek to his ear. Noah’s rough beard tickled him, sending more zinging sparks down Ethan’s spine.
“But you’re hard for me.” Noah gave Ethan’s dick a rough tug. “You want me. Don’t bother denying it. I’ll call you a liar.”





Events from the previous installment in the Kagan Wolves series still loom large in this sexy read with a love triangle that will change a pack forever.  Throw in secrets regarding the nefarious actions of the Tanner pack's alpha and you end up with a pulse-pounding and heart-wrenching tale full of twists and turns.  It's an exciting addition to the series that gives greater insight into pack hierarchy, bringing some issues to a conclusion while laying the groundwork for other complex couplings amidst danger coming ever closer to the world of shifters.

Ethan's childhood was one of secrets from the day he was born which led to years of confusion as to his rightful place in the pack and in the world.  He's clearly a dominant but knew he couldn't fight for control of his pack without claiming a mate which his body and inner wolf wouldn't let happen.  For years the only attraction he felt was for the widowed Noah which would be condemned by his pack if they knew.  He was happy to live a lie though as his connection to Noah ran deep, but with the health and safety of the Tanner pack declining, change is becoming a necessity.  Just in time, his body stirs with his introduction to Hannah from the profitable neighboring Kagan pack and the two undergo a sensual battle of wills as his heart's conflicted over his love for both Noah and her.  He has many secrets too that could put her in jeopardy and fear over losing the happiness he's had with Noah and what he's found with her have him delaying claiming her until it's almost too late.  With threats from the current alpha being leveled at him, his friends, and over his long lost brother, it all leads to an unforgettable confrontation that shows the true power of love.

Like Ethan, Noah is a dominant but was content just offering advice until the alpha thought he went too far and retaliated in a most vicious way leaving Noah lonely and guilt-ridden.  His only solace was his love for Ethan which they had to keep secret.  It's clear though that things must change as the danger to their pack is increasing as the alpha and his cronies are getting more out of control. While Ethan fears the feelings he has for both Noah and Hannah, Noah embraces the connection they have and the decadent delights they could bring each other and pushes Ethan into embracing their unique and powerful bond. It's a bond that gets put to the test almost immediately, a test full of danger that ultimately makes their pack stronger despite its being unconventional.

Hannah's a strong-willed shifter who longs to be mated to an alpha as it's in her blood to care and nurture her packmates.  Though she's tiny in stature she's a woman who shouldn't be discounted.  Though her romantic past has left her self-esteem bruised she's still determined to go after who and what she wants. The moment she sees Ethan she knows they're meant to bond and sets out to win him over.  Discovering that Noah is part of the package at first confuses her, and again has her doubting her sex appeal, but she soon finds herself drawn to him and the sensual promises he makes her and Ethan.  Though their coupling is unconventional it's powerful and it will take every bit of their intense connection to save the Tanner pack from the threats from within and from the outside world.

This is a steamy story with great depth that pulls you into the romance between three strong-willed people who've known heartache and fully deserve the happiness they've found in each other.  The bond between them is instantaneous but believable (and did I mention scorching?) and gives proof to the power of love as their joining makes them a formidable match.  Each one has a distinct and immensely appealing personality which makes their menage even hotter as each one takes different roles throughout their interludes together.  Readers get deeper insight into how packs are run, for better or worse, and it highlights how low the Tanner pack has fallen and the depravities that are a result of their alpha's increasing madness.  Along with the compelling main characters comes numerous secondary characters with romantic issues of their own that add to the abundant heartache permeating the story.  From Maria to Alex (and their forbidden love) to Quinn who wants Maria for himself, to the return of a long lost brother, there's plenty of fodder for more stories that I'm looking forward to wholeheartedly.  Ms. Corrigan has crafted a compelling read set in an exciting and evocative world.  She introduces readers to characters we quickly come to care about while keeping us on the edge of our seats through action-packed sequences that have us rooting for the good guys.  Fans of the paranormal genre will want to add this read to their bookshelf for its pitch perfect blend of eroticism, action, and mythology and will be counting down the days until the next powerful installment.

My rating for this is an A.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
