About this ebook

Cyra, a rare Omega phoenix shifter, has had a rough week, to say the least.

First, two playboy Alphas, a hydra and a griffin, start showing up at the cafe she works at. Their teasing making her all hot and bothered, no matter how much she tries to ignore them. And then she accidentally accepts to play a princess at a spoiled shifter kid’s birthday party, where her crappy old car promptly breaks down. Luckily, or maybe she’s just cursed, a cerberus and a centaur Alpha are there to save the day and give her a ride home.

For years, Cyra has managed to hide herself from other shifters, pretending she’s human. Because she doesn’t want her parents to marry her off to a rich asshole Alpha for money and status or to be kidnapped and bred like some other rare Omega shifters. She wants her freedom, to be able to make her own choices, and both of those things are taken away the moment she’s mated. Once she’s claimed by an Alpha, she’ll become that Alpha’s property, and she refuses to live like that.

But now everything she’s worked so hard for is falling apart around her. Money is tight, and with her crappy car constantly needing repairs, she won’t be able to afford the medication she needs to stay hidden from shifters, especially with the mating season only weeks away.

So she makes a reckless decision and takes the cerberus and the centaur up on their offer to be their date to the yearly Night Gala, an exclusive shifter event for bachelor Alphas, Betas and Omegas, though it’s not uncommon for humans to attend too, as ‘dates’ or serving staff. Their offer is too tempting, one night of boring chats while looking pretty, and all her money problems will be solved.

That is, until the hydra and griffin Alphas also appear at the Night Gala and everything goes to hell…

This is the first book in the Her Shifter Harem’s Babies series, a paranormal Omegaverse reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This book may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).

??This story includes MF and MM scenes.

Cyra is a rare omega Phoenix pretending to be just a human by using suppressant drugs so the alphas won’t scent her. She wants her freedom, to be able to make her own choices of who she wants, but both options would be taken away once she is mated. If an Alpha claims her, she will become that Alpha’s property, all choices taken away, and she refuses to live like that. And just as bad, Cyra’s parents have big plans for her! Not for her happiness, but so they can get the most money, prestige, or whatever else they can scrounge from their rare shifter daughter. But now everything is falling apart anyway because money is a problem for her. With her car constantly breaking down and needing repairs, she won’t be able to get to work and earn enough to afford the medication she needs to hide from the shifters, especially with the mating season only weeks away. What can she do to keep herself hidden? Once she goes into heat, shifters will scent her from miles around! And when two shifters who helped her with her car need a “date” to a party, without thinking she accepts to pay them back for helping and ends up putting herself right in the midst of other Alphas! I always feel so bad for the Omegas. Sometimes they get an Alpha who treats them right, but most of the time it seems they get a bossy jerk who treats them as the property he thinks they are. Grrrr, don’t like that! Enjoy this start to a new series and see if all goes well for our heroine.

I do not know why, but I was expecting the same ol' shifter reverse harem romance. Find perfect harem, get pregnant, deal with some villain, everyone lives happily ever after. The author delivered us much more. The main heroine is an Omega and if that is not enough of a curse for her, she is also a rare type of shifter. In her shifter world that means a cage, not even one that is guaranteed to be gilded. The entire time you will be hoping for her HEA. Each of our shifter hunks are just that, hunks. The author delivers the each characters arc in a way that you can easily understand their plights and personalities. Each hunk is experiencing alpha pressures and each has reservations with finding a mate to meet their society's or families expectations. This book will end in a cliff hanger, but the author does a phenomenal job of leading you to the cliff, instead of just let you fall off into the oblivion. On a side note, the cover is misleading, there is not a pregnant Omega running around, at least not yet. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

WARNING this book ends on a real cliffhanger. I did enjoy reading this book until the cliffhanger, which I didn’t know about. It was a bit better than many of the reverse harem books I have read, I don’t read many but decided to read an ARC of this one because it said that it was ltgb. There are two guys who are making eyes at each other but it doesn’t go much further in this book. This book does have less sex and more talking about feelings and situations than other reverse harem books that I have tried. It also goes into shifter society and laws which hopefully will continue in the next books as it was well written and really made the story interesting. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
