This was my first time reading anything by Aria Kane and I really enjoyed it. I was a little worried that Sophia was going to run at some point and I'm so glad that she stuck it out with Desmond. They were great together and when you add in Desmond's trickster nature it made for quite an enjoyable read. And that twist at the end?! Totally not expecting that! I'm still not sure what a puca is but I guess it doesn't really matter in the end :) If not for the rather abrupt ending with no epilogue t [...]
Reviewed @ Confessions From Romaholics Review copy kindly provided by author in exchange for a honest reviewreviewSibilance has to be my favourite so far because of the shifters chose for this story. I’m not familiar with Desmond’s type of shifter that he is but he cut the air. He t urned the novel from being a purely paranormal with dark romantic suspense thread to also being funny thanks to Des.Our heroine Sophia is on the run for a reason and she gone the only place she knows that can be [...]
Minor spoilers may be ahead - Sibilance was a refreshing variance for a shifter. It started off at a really good pace and before I knew it I was sailing almost into the end of the book. Sophia is on the run back to a home that she doesn’t really know including the people and their secrets. As we get to know who Sophia is and her interactions with Desmond, we get to see a woman that has really been cheated by her mom on many levels. Desmond is so stalwartly, he’s there for the town as well as [...]
I received an ARC of "Sibilance" from the author, in exchange for an honest review.What an adventure, this is my first book I've read from Aria Kane, so I went in not knowing what I was getting into, this was much more. "Sibilance" is Aria Kane's installment for the "Woodland Creek" collection, a collaboration of 30 authors all writing about 1 little town in Indiana USA, I was intrigued with the concept behind this collection. What a ride Aria takes us on, a snake shifter con artist, on the run, [...]
3.5/5 stars*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange of a honest review*The Writing:The writing was okay. The chapters weren't too long or too short. We read from two POVs: Sophia and Desmond. That was great because these two are quite different and their perspectives of things were different too.The Story:This is a short, easy read.I loved the world in this book. I decided to accept this copy because: snake-shifter. We don't really get to read that often about that kind of shi [...]
Okay what to say, what to say. I liked how this book was written, however I think it would have been ten times better if it had been a little bit longer so that it didn't feel as rushed.Sophia is a con artist who learned everything that she now knows from her mother. When a con goes south and Sophia is badly hurt she goes to the one place that not one of her aliases have ever used, Woodland Creek. It is where her family has lived for generations before her mother decided to leave it when she was [...]

Johnny Valrico is a mobster that has gotten away with many things. He won't let her get away with trying to steal from him. She runs hoke to Woodland Creek to heal before she can get further away.Desmond Callahan is also a shifter as well as a doctor in Woodland Creek. Not everyone knows of the shifters there and he uses his clinic to help any i [...]
**An e-ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review **I rarely encounter books who uses 3rd person POV. Sibilance is my first I guess. I wasn't used to it so at first I was really behind on what's happening and kept back reading.Every page has got me pumped though confused with the POV. I'm confused at who's feelings who. The Plot twist? I didn't know it was coming. I should've known by that time but I didn't. If it could've been written through the characters POV, THIS HAS BE [...]
Need something light to read? This is the book for you. Cute read with a HEA. Lots of characters. This is one of those feel good stories.
Now this is one of the more unique shifters in the series, and I loved it. I loved Desmond, the doctor who appears in more than one other story of the series, but I had NO IDEA he was acret! I can't tell you because it's too cool to learn what he is. But, I freaking love those, and to top it off, Sophia is a snake shifter- and she is cool! Des is the cool headed, rational doctor of shifters, while Sophia is more spontaneous, yeah I'll go with that one. LOL She is on the run from a scary man. Ser [...]
I'm not a big paranormal romance reader (something about getting it on while in beast mode), but I was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Kane does a fine job of blending the paranormal with the romance (i.e. no beast mode boning). Sybil and Desmond are the perfect match of wisecracks and wit and I really enjoyed their banter. As this is a contemporary romance there is the requisite conflict, which comes in the guise of an ex that doesn't know when to let go, although I kind of thought Kane was going to [...]
Sophia Samson is wounded and on the run. The only place she can think of to go is Woodland Creek, the nowhere town her mother grew up in. She is not healing the way her Snake shifter metabolism normally would. The ceremonial knife that she was stabbed with must have been special. Doctor Desmond Callahan is a Puca shifter, working as a doctor in a town with so many "Others" means he gets some strange cases. When he finds a naked, wounded woman in his storeroom it's obvious she is something other [...]
This was a short but really wonderful read. FUll of mystery and intrigue, sex and romance.Full of steamy sex.I was very suprized that there was any romance at all. At first I just thought it was going to be a simple novel about shifters and a girl running away.But then Desmond showed up and boy was I shocked at what came after.The authors description of Desmonds character, of his physical attributes just made me drool like a little schoolgirl.He never leaves you bored, you are always guessing wh [...]

Sibilance is a wonderful paranormal read. Sophia is a woman who has never trusted and watching her learn to love and trust Desmond is a moving journey. I found the writing of Ms. Kane to be talented and pleasurable experience. The story of a small town paranormal community is worth reading and provides a pleasant diversion from life.DelaneReviewer for Coffee Time Romance & MoreOfficial Review @ Coffee Time Romance & More
Sibilance was not what I expected. It was better! It is the story of Sophia, a snake shifter, and Desmond, a puka. It was a blend of PNR, romance, suspense, and humor. The story was well-written, flowed smoothly, and kept my attention from beginning to end. Plot twists and surprises are found throughout the story.This is the first book I've read by Aria Kane. I look forward to reading more of her books. I highly recommend reading Sibilance. If you aren't a fan of shifter stories, this story migh [...]
First I received this book as an arc for a honest review. I'm so glad I went against my nature (I'm terrified of snakes) and read this book. Sophia is a shifter (she shifts into a snake!) on the run from a mobster who caught her stealing from him. She has a silver wound and Des is the good doctor in town who finds and treats her. He tells her most of the people in town are shifters of some type, he himself shifts into a giant puca horse. I really enjoyed the fast pace and excitement of the book [...]
Good ReadThis is the first time I have read ones of Kanes Novels. So I'm strictly rating on this Novel alone. Warning Spoiler Alert First let me say, I'm a shifter novel lover, lol. It was hard for me to get lost in it. Maybe because it was a snake and a horse. I tryed to have an open mind , and it did have a good story. It had a few spelling errors. It was also a let down that they were only in their forms once for him and twice for her in the book. For those reasons I gave it three stars.
This was a fun shifter story. Sophia runs back to her hometown with a knife wound, running from a mobster. She doesn't realize that there are other shifters, let alone a whole town full of them. She meets Desmond who immediately knows what she is and he fixes her up, then insists on helping her further. He's sweet and she is prickly. An entertaining story with some interesting shifters that you don't always read about. It seemed a little rushed, but it is a fun, quick read.
Sibilance was a very fun read. It made me smile, laugh and hold my breath as I waited to see what would happen. Desmond was charming and I loved his pranks as well as his reasoning for everything always being that he was a puca. I enjoyed how strong and stubborn Sophia was and how she and Des actually complimented each other because of this. I would absolutely recommend to paranormal fans.
Came across this on , and the blurb sounded interesting. Pleasantly surprised to find out it's one of 30 books by 30 authors about this one shifter town, Woodland Creek. I enjoyed this story, I like the characters, and it's nice to see/read about other kinds of shifters. Definitely have to check out the other books now.
4.5 stars!I found the story well thought out, imaginative in a world were shifters hide in plain sight. Readers will find this book innovative. Get ready for drama, suspense and steamy chemistry. An HEA with Desmond is a guarantee. These two are in for an awesome future. This story gets 4.5 stars!
SibilanceOoh these get more and more exciting. I have never read about a snake shifter before and I am definitely not disappointed. This was so good I look forward to the next. I wanna learn more about the Puca shifter too.
A sweet story full of danger, risks and fun twists and turns that'll have you smiling as you read. I really enjoyed the story and the characters as well. The characters were unique and exciting to read. It was easy to root for a happy ending. I can't wait to read more books in this series.
Cute storyGood shifter romance read with many different characters, all equally interesting. Good action and plenty of steam. *I received this book free for an honest review*
