Check out these Cardeno C novellas


Sometimes a novella hits the spot just perfectly and these novellas from Cardeno C are no exception.

The story was fabulous – sweet and sexy, hot Alphas, hurt/comfort – it ticked all the right boxes. In fact, I don’t read a lot of shifter romances but when I do, I find novella length perfect.

Check out the selection below. There’s All of Me, the paranormal I read, plus two contempories,
