Amber and her best friend Julian own the Cafe in Silver Springs, called Jewels Cafe. Amber, a chameleon shifter, and Julian, a witch with wonky magic, hide their true feelings for each other in fear that the other doesn’t reciprocate. Julian finally decides to take matters into his own hands with one spell and a Pumpkin Spice Latte to create a spark between them so that he can finally make his move.
When Amber finds herself feeling mate connections with not only her best friend but a bear shifter and a bunny shifter, it feels as if her life is teetering on the edge. Will she break the connections and lose a life that could potentially make her the happiest she’s ever been? Or will she succumb to the overwhelming love that she seems unable to fight.
This book is amazing! It’s a perfect read for the time we are living in as we are all in desperate need of something light, fluffy, swoony, and hilarious. Amber is a lovable character and her men are just the swooniest. This is definitely a book I could read again and again! Mia Harlan manages to write such amazing characters that are impossible not to love. Make sure you snatch it up now while it’s FREE! ♥️
I’m in love with my best friend. But one sip of a spelled pumpkin spice latte, and two shifters are calling me their mate…
It’s hard enough being a chameleon shifter with wonky powers, but opening Jewels Cafe with my secret crush? Maybe not the best idea. Hiding my feelings for him is getting harder and harder. And if we don’t get customers soon, our cafe will go out of business.
As a last ditch effort, we create a signature pumpkin spice drink. One taste-test and the sweetest bear shifter is drawn to me like honey. A sexy bunny shifter offers me his carrot. They don’t even seem to mind that I randomly shift (and half-shift) into everyone I meet.
But can I handle not just one mate, but three? And will we find a way to save Jewels Cafe before another spell tears us apart?

I’m not crying. You’re crying. What?! WHY ARE MY EYES LEAKING?! Ugh. So I finished the last book of the Crystal Clear series by Lana Kole. It was fuggin amazing. & my heart is in pieces. I missed Mori and these guys so freaking much. Kai, Walker, Remi, Levi… Swoon… Let’s get into it ♥️
Please note that this is book three of the Crystal Clear series, if you haven’t read book 1 or 2 there are spoilers ahead.
We join the guys and Moira. Yeah, you read that right. MOIRA. Not Mori. That asshole Viggo succeeded in putting his dead wife’s soul into our girl Mori, so now we are stuck with this bitch. Okay, well maybe she isn’t a bitch. But still… We need Mori! The guys are obviously devastated and working around the clock to get Mori back. They just need to find a swytch. Moira (not a bitch, but also not Mori) is helping them find a way to get Mori back because she is not down with her crazy ex’s plans. She sees the devastation the guys are experiencing and although she does appreciate her second chance at life she knows that it isn’t fair to Mori. The POVs with the guys is heartbreaking. Literally, my heart is broken.
Meanwhile Mori is still here. She is just not here here. With Moira taking the forefront of her body, Mori is forced into the recesses of her mind. She is stuck in the darkness with no one, left screaming in fear without no one to answer her calls. It’s been months and she isn’t convinced that she was ever really alive. Maybe it was all a cruel dream. Maybe none of the guys were real. How long will she be stuck in this darkness?
Mori’s prison of darkness is only one hurdle they have to jump. We are also dealing with the missing mages and a return of Dick Holder. Even after escaping the darkness of her mind Mori has extreme problems with darkness, anxiety over what she missed, and overall fear of going back to that horrible place. Mori’s time in the dark place meant a lot of time the guys spent with Moira as well as some big changes in BCS.
Don’t worry, the book isn’t all darkness, doom, and gloom. There is also an amazing amount of relationship building. We get to see deeper into the lives of Kai, Walker, Remi, and Levi. There is so much emotion in this book it makes you love the characters so much more than you already did. The love between Mori and her guys is so… ugh. Fucking swoony. I never wanted it to end. Plus the steam. Whew. Shit there is some hot scenes in this book ❤
I am so fucking sad this series is over. I loved this so much and I want more. YOU HERE ME LANA I WANT MORE!! I can’t imagine my life with no more Walker. No more Kai. No more Remi and Levi?! NOOOOOO!!! I just want to sit around and listen to Kai call me baby girl. I wanna watch Walker chop wood. I wanna sit on Levi’s lap while he fucks with computers. I want to lay in bed with Remi all day long. If you haven’t read this series you need to. Like now. It is so freaking amazing. I can’t wait to see what Lana Kole comes out with next ❤
“I love you. Fuck, I love you.”
She let out a short huff, and turned to retrieve her coffee mug, returning and grabbing one of the folding chairs leaning against the siding. Letting it be heard what she was doing, she stomped down the steps, unfolding the chair with a carefully balanced hand full of precious caffeine, and slapped her ass down in that chair. It was only a few moments later that Walker saw what she’d done. “What the hell are you doing?” he frowned at her as he paused with the axe balanced between two fists. “Enjoying the view.” The sun cast a perfect shadow to pronounce the tick in his jaw, and she barely kept herself from smirking. “Go on. Please.”

Tell me a little about yourself, your likes, dislikes, etc.
Why do I feel like I’m writing a bio for a dating app? I’m Lana Kole, author of paranormal reverse harem romance. Three cats own my house, and I only live there, catering to their needs. Iced coffee fills my veins and snacks keep the creativity flowing. I’m not one for social activity, and not only because I hate real pants. Anyone wanna date me yet?
Do you use a pen name? If so, what made you decide to
go that route?
do! I’m not only an author—I have a full time job, too and I didn’t want my
employer associated with my books.
When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
always loved reading, and have been
obsessed with the imagination and dedication it takes to create an entire
world, build characters, and make them come to life on a page. Vivid dreams
have always woken me up in the middle of the night, and I’d lean over and jot
down the dream in my notes, wishing I could develop it into something more. It
didn’t even occur to me to try publishing until I came into the RH community and
learned about self-publishing, and I started developing.
How long does it take you to write a book?
It’s hard for me to answer with only four books under my belt, because I have yet to establish a routine. I would like to take three months to each book, but that’s just impossible. So, usually about a month and a half, to two months, but I’ve been cramming recently.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I work my full time job from 8-4, and then come home and write, and cram on the weekends. Its 24/7 grind for me right now.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Interesting? I’m not sure about that word, lol. It has to be dead silent for me to focus. A friend once called me a witch because I heard some kids playing outside my house and without even realizing, I was like, “I hear children.” You can tell I’m a single cat lady.
How hard was it to get your books published?
The process with Amazon is actually pretty simple, but its writing, and making covers, and doing promotions that are the hardest part. It takes so much time and energy out of an author to get everything ready in time.
Where did you get the idea for your books?
For Crystal Clear, it literally started with an image in my head of a woman surrounded by darkness. I worked the series around that first scene. For Feline Good, it started as a joke, a cat lady with shape shifting pets, but then it took me where it wanted to go.
Where do you get your information for books?
I despise research, honestly. So I try to build worlds that I don’t have to focus on timelines, or historical accuracy. For Feline Good, it did actually require lots of research, and my friend Stacey is an expert in all things Egyptian, so I leaned on her a lot through that book.
When did you write your first book and how old were
Once upon a time, my mom and I started writing a MF romance together. Yes, we’re that close and she’s that cool. I was probably around… 16ish at the time.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Reading or mindlessly watching TV, giving my brain a break.
What does your family think of your writing?
My mom is so thrilled, and she even betas for me. My aunt says she wants to read it, but I’m afraid she’ll disown me, LOL. I told my dad he wasn’t allowed to read them.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned
in creating your books?
How hard it was to actually develop a world. It’s difficult to make sure that what you envision is what you’ve written for someone else to read.
How many books have you written? Which is your
I’ve written four books, and it’s impossible to pick which one is a favorite. Book two of the Crystal Clear Series is so light and fun and sexy, but book three is darker—in the way it’s about Mori and the guys growing together. It’s real, and they struggle, but overcoming those obstacles make them stronger together, and I think that’s beautiful in a way.
Do you have any suggestion to help someone become a
better writer? If so, what are they?
Push the self-doubt away. Write through it, keep going, and always revise later. Don’t get hung up on perfecting the first paragraph before you even write the first draft.
Do you hear from readers much? What kinds of things do
Oh my gosh, do I ever. I love my reader group. They send me cat memes, and basically have free reign over my group. They talk to each other a lot, and it makes my heart happy to see friendships play out.
Who is your author idol?
I really love Madison Faye, her instalove books make me so happy, lol. Kresley Cole and JR Ward got me into the Paranormal Romance world back when I was in high school. Also my girl Kathryn Moon, and I don’t say that just because we’re besties. She writes like no one else I’ve ever seen, so flowy and magical and pretty. No one could replicate that if they tried.
What are some books on your current TBR?
Well I was looking forward to Kathryn Moon’s third book in the Librarian’s Coven, but I finished that pretty quick. In case you’re wondering, it was awesome. Next is her Sun and Moon series. I’ve gotten a sneak peek at what she has so far, and I’m literally vibrating with excitement to see where she takes it. Bethany Jadin is cooking up some pretty awesome stuff that’s at the top of my list, and anything Madison Faye writes is an instabuy—she’s doing a series of historically inaccurate romances—Kilts and Kisses—and I can’t wait! JR Ward’s Savior just came out, the 17th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I can’t wait to sink my fangs into that one. (har-har). Also, Joanne Ganci just released her debut novel and it sounds adorable.
Thank you so much Lana Kole for answering all my questions ❤ If you haven’t fallen in love with this girl yet you are crazy. & not the good kind. Make sure you check out her books because they are AMAZING! You have time to binge-read the first two books of the crystal clear series before book 3 comes out this month!
