#WereEVENT – Guest Blog: Shifters and Why We Love Them by Diane Leyne (18+)


Five Ways Shifters Make Worse Boyfriends than Regular Men

5               They have to spend a lot on clothes since they wreck theirs each time they shift.

4               Staying out all night and blaming it on that whole “running with the pack thing”.

3               They hump your leg

2               Shedding… need I say more?

1               Forget PMS.  Wolf shifters get really grumpy three days a month!


Three Ways They Make Better Boyfriends

3               Stronger, faster and more stamina

2               Larger than average equipment

1               They look like Taylor Lautner and Joe Manganiello


Three Popular Misconceptions about Shifters Perpetuated by the Media

1               All they can think about when they shift is attacking humans.  Not true.  They just wake up with the most incredible case of the munchies and would also be satisfied with a couple of burritos and a diet coke.

2               There is only one type of shifter:  wolf.  The media is clearly run by canines and prejudiced against cat, bear and bat shifters.  (Bat-shifting Americans aka vampires)

3               They can be killed by silver bullets.  Not true.  In fact, female shifters love their silver bullets.


In all seriousness, I love writing about shifters because I get to create my own world.  I can make up the rules for male/female relationships and even male/female/male/male/etc. relationships.  But even though they have elements of the supernatural (shifters) and wish fulfilment (multiple men devoted to the pleasure of a single woman), they are always rooted in the real world, with relatable problems.

In Harmony, Washington, male/females relationships are just as hard as anywhere else, and the people/shifters deal with problems such as lack of trust in a relationship (Claimed by Wolves), PTSD (Desired by Wolves), infertility (Loved by Wolves) and hate-crimes (Taken by Wolves).

The other mandatory feature of my books is a strong heroine.  No matter how hot the sex or how much she loves her mate(s), the woman stands her ground and doesn’t let them overwhelm her.

(Call of the Wolf #1)

[Siren LoveXtreme Forever: Erotic Paranormal Ménage Romance, M/F/M/M/M/M, shape-shifters, spanking, HEA]

Samantha Anderson is carrying out her grandmother’s last wish and visiting the Northwest to learn about her family’s heritage.

She’s surprised by her immediate attraction to the five McAllister brothers: sexy big brother and pack alpha Gabe, hot carpenter twins Bart and Nick, and young and sweet fitness trainer twins Eddie and Andy. She’s even more surprised when they all decide to pursue her.

What she doesn’t know is that the wolf-dog shape-shifting brothers have recognized her as their mate and are determined to win her over so she’ll agree to a formal mating ceremony which will tie her to them forever.

The only holdout is Gabe, who worries about mating with a human and wants to learn more about her before revealing their secret. To do this, he decides to spy on her in wolf-dog form. That’s when he finds out that Samantha has a secret of her own.

Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

(Call of the Wolf #2)

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, shape-shifters, light bondage, light spanking, HEA]

Veterinarian Lena Windsor grew up expecting to be mated to shape-shifter Alex James and his brothers, Joe and Will, when she finished university, but when military vet Alex leaves the three of them behind to re-enlist, she builds a new life for herself, eventually coming home to take over her fathers’ practice in Harmony, where she reconciles with Joe and Will.

One day, Lena begins to suspect that someone has been prowling around her house while she’s at work and uses a nanny cam to find the culprit. She’s shocked to see a very changed Alex, who is dealing with a severe war injury by bonding, in wolf-dog form, with the stray dog she adopted who has a similar injury.

She’d never turn away an injured animal, not even when he’s also the man who broke her heart. Can she help him to heal without falling in love with him again?

Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
