    ~~Gifted by the Author~~3.5 starsI’ve enjoyed Viola Rivard’s talent for sometime now and she never fails to deliver something hot and fun, short and different. I do so love the adult spin on the age old fairy tales. The most pro for this is yep short and sweet and no cliff hangers. The book does her talent justice a hero and a maiden. Can you even imagine living in a time where your husband is picked out for you, well Rose is about done with ...

    i received this book as an ACR for an honest review. I really like Viola's take on the story, it was heart warming. Rosa has an arrange marriage set for her with the town drunk by her brother. Yuck! Ronan is a wolf that lives in the woods between her village and her grandmothers house. Once he gets a whiff of her and all bets are off. I enjoyed reading this short story, very entertaining. Recommend to all fairytale lovers or shifter lovers.

    I loved this short story retelling, my only problem is that it is a stand alone and will not have a sequel. Really would love more of this story TBH!

    Don't you just love when an author takes a fairytale/ nursery rhyme & changes it?? Makes it have paranormal characters?? Makes it into a steamy, hot read?? Yes or no, I can't deny that Viola has re-vamped Red Ridding Hood to the point of it where it doesn't read like the original anymore. 'Red Fever' is the first in Viola's "Fairy Tail Shorts" series, I enjoyed this fast, steamy read that had me thinking of Red Ridding Hood in a different way to ...

    This is a very interesting beginning to this series, I liked it because it starts at the very basics of a werewolf's mating fever.Ronan is being pulled towards his mate and by all the gods, she is human, he has never heard of such a thing! He lives by himself in a den in a mountain with none of the modern conveniences, not even a bed.Rose is desperately trying to get away from the aweful man her brother has promised her to and the wedding is only...

    A sexy new twist to Little Red's storyI always thought there could be more to the story of Little Red RIding Hood, and now we have this sexy version! I loved Rose's resourcefulness in trying to shake Alf. I loved that Alf always so unrepentantly repugnant, like the old TV character by the same name. I loved the strange ideas Ronan had about human women because it reminds me of the dumb things we always think about "the others" like white men can'...

    Arc reviewThis is little red riding hood with a shifter twist that is really good. Ronan the wolf is one big bad wolf that I would love to meet in the woods. Rose has been given a pretty crappy hand at life and her love life is pretty non-existent because of it. Little red skips right into the life of the wolf instead of running away when she’s trying to get away from Alf. The attraction between these two was very hot and undeniable. Their time...

    I love the twist on the classic fairytale especially when it's naughty. I really enjoy reading this tale of Little Red Riding Hood I felt really bad for Rose who engaged to nasty disgusting abusive man by the name of Alf. Rose was no fool even though she was a afraid of him she decided to escape into the dangerous forests risking the chance where wolf lives to get to her grandmother house. In route to her grandmother Rose spots a sexy man eyeing ...

    I received this ARC in return for my honest review. ------- Red Fever is somewhat of a retelling of Little Red riding hood. It's more of it's own story though with key elements from the original fairy tale such as the wolf, and red hooded cloak. While the writing was very nice and clear there were certain elements missing I wish were there. The was no date in the beginning and nothing to indicate the time period so that I could imagine story more...

    What a great little short story. I loved it, The main characters are Roman, Rose and Alf. Roman is sweet, cute and loveable huggable. Rose is strong, smart, beautiful and Romans mate. Alf is the bad guy of the story. He and Rose are to be married but Rose can't stand him and runs away. Alf finds Rose but so does Roman and that's all I'll share on what happens so you'll just have to by the book. You'll be happy you did. I know I look forward to th...

    A new spin on Little Red Riding Hood, and what a spicy spin it was!! Ronan, our Hero, is a black wolf in search of his mate and in dire need to mate with her.Rose, our heroine, is trying frantically to escape from Alf, a disgusting man that she has been promised to by her unfeeling brother.This NOVELETTE started out quite good and was quite interesting. However, it became very rushed nearing the end and ended very abruptly. A copy of this Novelle...

    Great new version of the classic fairytaleI really liked this short story of Rose and Ronan. I love how wonderful Ronan was to her and showed her how a true mate really behaves and treats his partner. This was a really quick read but it covered a lot of story and I thought it was a terrific start to a whole new world of classic fairytales. Way to go Viola!

    Finds one’s mateRonan had very few interactions with humans so when the scent of her mate turns out to be a human he almost turns away. Rose has been sold off by her brother to be the wife of a very repulsive man. In her attempt to escape her fate and go to her grandmother’s house said man decides to go with her. But she spotted a man overlooking her and wished for him in some ways. This is a very well written and entertaining story to read.

    This book was ok. I feel the characters could have been better developed and I disliked the ending. There are just pieces that are missing in this book that should have made it. One example is you run from your grandmothers house but she doesn't look for you or you don't tell her your ok. I do like her books but this was not my favorite by far.

    A sexy adult version of Little Red Riding Hood. Rose is on her way to grandmothers house to escape having to marry the horrible woodsman's son, when she comes across the wolf. He knows she is his mate, and will do anything to protect her. And with every fairy tale comes a happily ever after. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    eversal. It was really well-written, but I wish it had been a little longer. I loved the ending, even though it felt a little rushed and I wasn't ready for it to end. Red was really interesting, and I was pleasantly surprised when my theory about her was incorrect. That rarely happens, and it's always exciting when it does. Red Fever is an exciting, but quick read. It's totally worth getting!

    I really love this author books. They are exciting and captivating. I felt though that Red Fever was a bit short, and needed more action. (view spoiler)[I think if the circumstances around the "event" at the end had been more detailed it would have been perfect. Afterall in red riding hood it was an important scene. (hide spoiler)]The story is though still great and worth a read.
