 Mandy’s Story is a standalone, humorous and little bit kinky side story to the Fang Chronicles series.

Every beastkind knows you don’t mess with a Kodiak bear—everyone that is except Mandy, the wolf-pack Alpha’s sister. When Mandy hears whispers that the bad attitude bear, Honey, has chosen a mate, she takes matters into her own hands because her wolf decided months before that Honey was hers. If drugging, kidnapping, and making him live in a feral cage won’t work she’s planning to give Honey a little bad attitude of her own.

The bear clan is ferocious, deadly, and their fighting skills coveted by other beastkind. With war on the horizon, Honey has little time for games or courting much less more than a few grunts of acknowledgement to a young she-wolf who seems to be everywhere he looks. When he wakes up in a feral cage at the hands of that same exasperating she-wolf… all bets are off.

If anyone thought bears and wolves don’t mix, they’ve never seen Mandy on a mission. She refuses to give into the sexy he-bear when he tries to seduce her out of her tight little assets and himself out of the cage she’s locked him in. Two can play that game and in the end Honey will learn, they both need to win, or else.

 Sorry, about this I know I am repeating myself but I've read two of these type books back to back so I feel the need make sure readers know these type of book do exist. I’m so tired of people saying heroines in romance are weak and they have to have the hero’s always saving the day. Well, let me tell you something, this book is here to prove you wrong, heroine's can be the strong lead too in romance books.

Mandy’s story is hilarious, but let me tell you up front she isn’t a weak heroine, nope no way no how, she’s not taking any crap off of any man or bear. She will stop at nothing to show them women can do more than men, even if she has to resort to using devices like tranquilizing guns, ropes & chains. Bears are set in there ways and can be hard to deal with but she proves that she can hold her own and she even gets to save a life in the process.

Mandy and Honey goes several round of fun bickering with each other before he finally caves in and clams her as his mate. But never worry, Mandy still has to show him whose boss a time or two, you know just to keep him in check. LOL.

My only reasons for not rating this a 5 was in once place Honey calls Mandy a" bitch" and for some reason the way it’s written, I just didn’t care for it and my other reason is the name Honey for a man bear…
If you love humor, action and romance than this fun book cannot be missed because D'Elen pulls out all of the stops and sucks you right in. 

Please spay and neuter your pets.


  1. A man bear named I do love these shifter books and strong heroines.

  2. I Had to re-read the synopsis because of the names. On my TBR list
