Dany Rae Miller – Rough Mountain Bears series reading order, a fun note from the author & a signed book giveaway (both books!!)

in Behind The Books, Reading Order Guide:

Who’s in the mood for a super-steamy shifter series? ;) The author teases us saying “…the love scenes deliciously vivid”!! And, to celebrate the release of her latest book in this series (Hard Wilde), the author is having a signed book giveaway for BOTH books.

Oh and she’s an author after my very own heart!!!!! Just as obsessed as I was over Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse (the catalyst for my reading & blogging frenzy). I couldn’t get enough and I had to read and talk about each and every book.

And Dany Rae Miller couldn’t get enough either. I just love this awesome sneak peek into her new shifter series and exactly what makes paranormal romance “tick” for her! Take a look. I have no doubt you’ll be nodding along with her, as I was. ABSOLUTELY THIS. YES!!

Remember how much you loved Twilight?

Me, too.

I was obsessed with Edward and Jacob. Edward’s initial confused reaction to Belle was intense and endearing. At the same time, Jacob’s loyalty — especially that time Edward ditched Belle — was unwavering. It was the werewolf who showed up for her and that secured a place for him in my heart.

Before Twilight there was a TV shifter named Angel. Just like Buffy, I fell head over heels for the vampire haunted by his poor, cursed soul.

Then, Bill came to Bon Temps to stoke different types of — um — angsty feelings. The Southern Vampire Mysteries bumped PNR to a more mature level. And I loved the steaminess of it.

But binge-worthy PNR isn’t sex for sex’s sake. Not at all. Because — and romance fans know this — great love stories deliver more than great sex. The best stories are hearts-on-their-sleeves, sweet and steamy love that profoundly changes who the characters are and how they see the world.

I want those whirlwind love stories that bloom in the thick of nail-biting drama, mysteries that unfold over entire series, and tough guys who fall hard for women who channel the badassery of Buffy, the smarts of Veronica Mars and a whole-lotta Anastasia Steele’s sensuality.

The kind of series that I plow through as a reader are those connected by characters who influence one another’s lives.

That’s where I come from as an author, too. Those are the kinds of stories I strive to tell.

Did I describe love stories as you like ‘em? Then, I invite you to come meet the Wildes of Rough Mountain. You might just come to love them and the mountain they live on.

Rough Mountain Bears*

Each book in the Rough Mountain Bears series follows the highs and lows of one couple’s story.

They fall in love all the while working through the mysteries, threats, and politics of their respective families, friends, and cultures. You get to know the characters better, because they continue their journeys in one another’s books.

  1. Sin Wilde kicks off the series with a new arrival on Rough Mountain who causes a big stir for him … and his people.
  2. In Hard Wilde (Rough Mountain Bears Book 2), some of the mysteries from book one are solved, others deepen, and new ones are introduced. The book concentrates, though, on the alpha who never wanted a mate in the first place yet falls hard when he least expects it.
  3. Ram Wilde will be book three in the series. [Mouth is zipped … no spoilers … writing it now!]

*Fair warning: Like all Dany Rae books, Rough Mountain Bears is intended for grownups. The language is adult and the love scenes deliciously vivid.



Sinclair Wilde is just your average cowboy bear shifter who takes care of his family and their Rough Mountain ranch.

When the reclusive next door neighbor dies, his oddball last will and testament opens the door to game hunters. If there’s one thing that should unite the ornery shifter species of the region, it’s city folk roaming the mountains with high powered rifles.

Then along comes Fallon White. She has a cat named Butterscotch and legs for miles. Not only does her arrival on the mountain have the potential to save his way of life, Sin’s monster likes her … a lot.

Fallon is a struggling witch looking for a soft place to land. Sin’s seductive aura and the wide open spaces of her late uncle’s property are just what her psyche needs.

But these mountains harbor more than shifters.

The secrets here are deep and dark … one of them so deadly it’s enough to make a witch run, and send your average cowboy bear shifter to the edge of madness.


Hard Wilde promised himself that he’d never take a mate. It’s just better given the flaws of his bear. And he’s stuck by that vow … until now … until a blood-thirsty angel with fangs shows up on his mountain. She needs his blood to survive and his monster needs to give it to her.

After being bitten by a demon, Emily craved blood so badly, she ran away from home and society … hiding on Rough Mountain … crafting a cure and biding her time for the right moment to reach for it. But one taste of her werebear’s miracle elixir and she wants more.

It’s wrong.
So, so wrong.
Why does it feel so right?

I love all shifter series. Its nice when there is a variety to read and they are not all wolves or nor all bear. You even see some bird shifters now and then!

Robyn C March 26, 2018 at 7:11 PM

Thanks for the chance. Looking forward to reading these. I love Trey from Ferel Sins ( Suzanne Wright Phoenix Pack) series. Sexy alpha shifter!

Alison March 26, 2018 at 7:15 PM

Looks like fun!

Cindy A March 26, 2018 at 7:22 PM

How cool!!

Tessa March 26, 2018 at 8:04 PM

Favorite shifter? Easily Curran from The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. (Though props from the same series, Dr. Doolittle, the honey badger shifter).

Psst… Angel was a vampire. :P Thanks for the chance!

I’d love to win! Sounds awesome!

Shifter books are much guilty pleasure! Dany has been a go to of mine since I stumbled onto her website to read Soft Shatter. I was instantly hooked and have never looked back ♡

I love all shifters! Probably my favorite type is the big cat shifters so it’s only fitting that one of my all time favorites is Tiger from Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound series. He’s so big and bad but at the same time he has a thing for kids. I just love him!

Dena March 28, 2018 at 9:30 AM

I don’t think I can pick one type of shifter. Currently in love with bird shifters, they are so free.

Thank you for the chance! I am glad that we are introduced to new authors in your blog.

It is my pleasure Dena!! :)
