Biker Werewolves: Meet the Magnus Pack by Shelly Laurenston

Combining two of our favourite things at Under the Covers; sexy werewolves with really big, vibrating…..engines is The Magnus Pack trilogy by the amazing Shelly Laurenston. Involving psychotic crazy women with friendships that only death will get them out of and some seriously hot biker werewolves it is a must read for Paranormal Romance fans, especially if you are looking for something to make you laugh like a loon and leave a massive grin on your face. Heads up! Don’t start reading these books in public unless you’re okay with strangers giving you weird looks when you burst out laughing!

What is the series Magnus Pack by Shelly Laurenston all about?

The Magnus Pack series by Shelly Laurenston is a fun mix of humor, romance, and action set in a world of shifters and paranormal drama. Expect fierce, independent women who end up with their destined mates, even if they start off fighting like cats and dogs. The alpha males are protective and sometimes a bit possessive, which just adds to the fireworks. There’s plenty of witty banter and laugh-out-loud moments, along with some serious action and adventure. As the characters navigate pack politics and rivalries, they form deep bonds and create their own kind of family. It’s a wild ride with a lot of heart and the perfect treat if you’re looking for a paranormal romantic comedy.

What tropes can we find in the Magnus Pack series?

Some of the common tropes you will find in the Magnus Pack series by Shelly Laurenston are:

  • Fated Mates
  • Enemies to Lovers
  • Strong Female Leads
  • Alpha Males
  • Humor and Banter
  • Found Family
  • Action and Adventure
  • Protective Heroes
  • Paranormal Politics

Would this be a good series to try for a paranormal romance beginner?

Absolutely! I always say if you’re trying a new sub-genre of romance, go for a comedy. It’ll make the transition a bit easier I think. And paranormal romantic comedies are less heavy on the mechanics of the world, giving you a taste of the paranormal in an easy to digest package.

What paranormal creatures can we find in Magnus Pack by Shelly Laurenston?

This is primarily a werewolf series. But one thing that stands out about Shelly Laurenston is that she’s able to bring some of the personality traits that we associate with those animals into the behavior of her characters. I especially love when she dives into bear shifters in her Pride series. But in Magnus Pack you can expect to see:

  • Werewolves: Central to the series, werewolves are the primary shifters, with the Magnus Pack being a prominent group.
  • Tigers: Specifically, Siberian tiger shifters like Nik Vorislav.
  • Other Shifters: While the series primarily focuses on wolves and tigers, other shifters and paranormal creatures are hinted at and sometimes make appearances. We get to explore more of other shifter species in the Pride series.

Are there any connected series?

This is only a trilogy so it’s an easy one. However this series is set in the same world as the Pride series and it is recommended that you read Magnus Pack before reading Pride. Mandatory? Not really. You can enjoy both series even if you read out of order.

“Is this you being all in charge?” 
“Where you’re concerned, I am in charge.”

Go Fetch by Shelly Laurenston

Go Fetch by Shelly Laurenston

Miki Kendrick is a genius with a short fuse and a penchant for trouble. When Conall Viga-Feilan, a sexy Viking werewolf, sets his sights on her, Miki’s life gets even more complicated. Between dodging assassins and resisting Conall’s irresistible charm, Miki must decide if she can let her guard down and accept a future with a man who drives her crazy—in all the right ways.

Favorite Quotes:

I’m not looking for marriage here, Zach. I just want to fuck her until one of us dies.

Conall checked his watch. Again. Soon his personal wet fantasy would be here. He wondered if it would be inappropriate to tackle her in the hallway as soon as she arrived and drag her up to his bedroom. Probably. Damn human etiquette.

Here Kitty, Kitty by Shelly Laurenston

Angelina Santiago is a sassy, no-nonsense heroine who’s kidnapped by a bunch of wolves and thrown into the wilderness. Enter Nik Vorislav, a hotheaded Siberian tiger shifter with a chip on his shoulder. Sparks fly as Angelina and Nik butt heads and claws, but beneath the bickering lies a fiery attraction neither can deny.

Favorite Quotes:

We’re a ‘we’ now?”

 “I thought I made that clear the other night when I tied you face down to the bed and fucked ya proper.” Nik walked toward her, water dripping down every long, wonderful inch of him. With his long legs, it took him no time to reach her chair. He crouched down next to her and gently, with one of those big hands, closed her mouth.
“Catchin’ flies, sugar?”

  1. OMG! I totally agree with CopperGoddess! I can totally see all the others as the characters. I LOVE Shelly Laurenston/G A Aiken’s books. I got Pack Challenge when I got my Sony reader, and haven’t looked back since. I have EVERY SINGLE BOOK SHE HAS OUT. I even have her first 2 dragon books in the original formats before she re-did them for the new publisher. Shelly/G A is an auto buy, no matter what!

    I would love to see who you would pick for her dragons.

  2. Uh oh! I am new to the genre and I see another author that it will be great to read.

    I love this blog group for all the wonderful introductions. I could get caught up in the picture graphics alone. (-;

    Thanks for posting!

  3. @Sophia Rose – Shelly Laurenston (aka G.A. Aiken) if you haven’t read her, is amazing! Hot couples, funny dialogues, big personalities, and great storylines. 😉 Glad we can help feed your new addiction.
