Reviews for Loup Garou
4.5 Hearts--This book was very hard to put down. The main character grabbed me at the beginning of the story. She is so strong in spite of the terrible things that life has thrown at her. Her friends are having a very hard time keeping her alive, and she hates imposing on them and exposing them to the horrors she faces every day. Exavier is exactly what she needs, even though he shows up almost too late, due to the lies his mother told him. The love story is scorching and the action never stops. The book is loaded with weres, vampires, demons, demon slayers, and the fae. This is one exciting paranormal romance. --The Romance Studio
4.5 Top Pick--Loup Garou: "Unexpected story twists, a wonderful heroine who's tough yet vulnerable and adventure and mystery all add up to a fun and exciting book." -- Page Traynor~ Romantic Times BookClub Magazine
A Perfect 10 "LOUP GAROU grabs you by the throat and drags you on an emotional roller coaster ride. Mandy M. Roth has created a dark, compelling world with characters that will bring you to tears. With a stunning mix of action and emotion this tale will leave you panting in its wake and turning the story over in your mind long after you have finished reading it. This is not a light-hearted read, but it is definitely a page-turner. ...LOUP GAROU is a deep and complex journey into a new paranormal world. While at times this is a very dark take on that world, it is also a tale about a strong woman and all she has to face. Plan to settle down with this one, because once you become caught up in this fascinating tale, it is simply too hard to put down. LOUP GAROU has that extra flair that moves it head and shoulders above the rest. The plot is solid and moves quickly, the love scenes are hotter than hot, and the characters are ones that you will truly care for. Combine all of that with action and mystery, and LOUP GAROU earns A Perfect 10. Bravo, Ms. Roth! " ~ Vicki Turner, Romance Reviews Today
6 Magic Wands-- "I loved this book. Okay, now I must warn you that there are some very hot, explicit love scenes...that rock. I immediately loved Lindsay for her spunky attitude and the way she helps others even if it hurts her. ...Ms. Roth's characters are realistic, and believable, even the secondary characters. Werewolves, werepanthers, vampires, etc. You name it, she probably has one in the book. This story made me laugh and cry, and all at the same time. I hope that we can look forward to many more books from this author because I'm in desperate need of another great read! " ~ Astraea, Enchanted Ramblings
4 Hearts--"Mandy M. Roth shows with this book her range of imagination, and the ability to bring that imagination to the readers in a believable way. This is a wonderful story that is full of emotion. Lindsay has to face past demons, present demons and finally look to the future for her happy end. Both hero and heroine have a lot of emotion. The love scenes are hot and sizzling, sensual and romantic. The action will hold the reader captivated and keep her turning the pages. This reviewer especially enjoyed the dialogue between the characters. Ms. Roth writes sassy, witty dialogue that will have the reader smiling, even though this is a dark story. ...Here’s hoping for more stories about some of the other characters" ~ Valerie, Love Romance
Blue Ribbon Rating: 5 "This is one story where the action never stops... Mandy M. Roth has created a vividly compelling world with her words... The characters are what will draw the reader into this story...The love scenes are hot and emotional... A sizzling erotic, paranormal read. A gripping tale of action, pain, love, and trust, Mandy M. Roth's, LOUP GAROU has it all. " ~ Belle Rouge, Romance Junkies
4 Stars! Heat level: S! "Loup Garou is a fast paced, action filled novel with an exhilarating plot and charismatic characters. The loving enthusiasm expressed by Lindsay makes her a joy to read. I really got into her caring personality, which made her both likeable and endearing. ...There is so much action going on, with vampires, werewolves, and a deadly dark prince, that I couldn’t put Loup Garou down" ~ Francesca Hayne, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
5 Stars! Heat Rating of 2! "...Mandy M. Roth is a new author to me, but I will now be hunting down anything she’s ever written after reading Loup Garou. Lindsay is a true heroine with her indomitable courage and sass. She made me laugh and she made me cry, sometimes at the same time. I laughed till it hurt with the erotic dance class and those “soccermoms” learning to do the bump and grind. And Exavier, oh my goodness! This book just flows from action to angst to hilarity to sexual tension so hot it singes the pages. This is a must buy, but leave yourself plenty of time to finish reading it once you start or you’ll find yourself reading until 5 AM as I did!" ~ Holly, Euro Reviews
"Loup Garou is a fun romp with some dark moments. You get shape-shifters, demon slayers, dark princes, vampires and the fay, all wrapped up in a romance. ...I enjoyed the ride through this fantasy land of the paranormal. Lindsay is an entertaining character, and I cannot wait to see her again in future stories about each of her friends " ~ Louisa Christina, Erotic Escapades
"Wow! Let me say it again...Wow! This is one fabulous story. First, the characters are so much fun. The witty dialogue is quick and dispensed with precision. Even in the midst of an attack, Lindsay's mouth keeps on working. Exavier gives as good as he gets and definitely demonstrates that he can hold his own with Lindsay and her friends. ...Although there is a lot of sexual chemistry flying around, the main storyline is not eclipsed by it. The story of good versus evil, as well as love overcoming pain is one that will keep you engrossed throughout. Enjoy this wonderful story that will have you panting for more! " ~ Trang Black, The Road to Romance

An Interview with Mandy Roth
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Mandy, thank you for talking with us at TRS BLUE. Your featured book is Loup Garou. Where did the idea for this amazing story originate?
MR: Thanks for having me! Loup Garou was born out of my love of rock music and music in general. I really wanted to write a story about a band full of supernaturals... you know, hiding in plain sight. I thought it would be exciting to see how far I could push the boundaries.
HH: What do you like best about Lindsay and why will readers identify with her?
MR: She's funny, she's smart, she's sassy but she is seriously flawed. I think that is key. Making her "real". Everyone is flawed.
HH:What do you like best about Exavier and why will readers love him?
MR: What's not to love about a supernatural front man? :) I also think his raw need of Lindsey is appealing.
HH: How did you go about creating their world?
MR: I wanted a little bit of a gritty urban feel to it. And I wanted readers to feel like they were submersed in this really cool underground society of sorts.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
MR: Loup Garou just released in audio. I'm very excited about this since its my first audio book ever! There are more books coming in the LG world. Also, many more books coming in some of my most popular series—Immortal Ops, King of Prey, etc.
HH: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
MR: It was ten years ago. Strangely, I've also been published for ten years starting in 2014. I guess when the bug finally bit me it really took a chunk. :)
HH: Do you have appearances, in person or online, planned for the fall?
MR: I'm actually in the process of having a home built and have just wrapped up an 800 mile move. For the time being I'm on Facebook and Twitter only. I'll also do some videos and posts letting readers know what's coming out soon.
HH: What inspires you in your writing?
MR: Music is a big inspiration to me. It sets the tone and mood of a story I'm working on and often sparks ideas for me.
HH: What are you reading at the moment?
MR: I was lucky enough to have an ARC of Michelle M. Pillow's newest Dragon Lord Book: The Reluctant Lord. I won't lie, this book keeps pulling me from my own work. I should be mad that she sent it to me but I love it so much that I can't.
HH: Do you celebrate Halloween, and if so, how?
MR: I go all out for Halloween. I dress up throughout the month as different things, a vampire, bride of Frankenstein, a she-wolf, a fairy, etc. Pretty much whatever I can think of. Its makes me smile and my children are so used it that they pay me little mind during the month of October.
HH: Thank you!
