A nymph: a woman with the ability to seduce at will, shift to protect, but cursed with the fate to have the man she falls in love with die a tragic death. As one of these ill-fated nymphs, Aura Montgarten has spent her lifetime drifting from one place to another hiding from love. Until she meets Dane.
When a body washes up on the shore of a rural Montana lake, police officer Dane Burke is faced with the task of finding the killer—even if it means he will be forced to put his life and heart at risk by working with a drifter. As the truth of Aura’s Mustang-shifting nymph ways are revealed, Dane learns exactly the amount of danger he and Aura are in, but can’t force himself to leave a case unsolved when the truth is just outside his grasp.
When the killer decides he needs to take another victim—Dane—Aura must choose between their forbidden love and her immortal life. Can there be life without love or is death her only choice?
What people are saying about Montana Mustangs:
Paranormal Romance Guild: 5 Stars *****
“Deputy Dane Burke works in the Sheriff’s office in the town of Somers, Montana. He finds himself at a crime scene where a bloody mutilated hand is found. The person who found the hand is Aura Montgarten. Neither Dane nor Aura could ever expect that this crime scene would change their lives forever.
Aura is no ordinary woman, she is a nymph-horse shifter and she has come to Montana in search of her sister, Natalie, who has not been heard from in seven days. When Aura is released from the crime scene she immediately heads to the area where Aura last contacted her from. The only way to get there is by going through the Diamond Bar Ranch, which just happens to be owned by Zeb Burke, Dane’s brother. When it is reported that there is a trespasser roaming around the ranch Dane once again finds himself chasing and catching Aura.
When Aura finally confesses to Dane why she is in Montana, he agrees to help her. When other women are found dead, finding Natalie becomes a priority, before she meets the same fate as the dead women, all of whom Aura realizes are nymphs. Who is killing these women? Why are they targeting only nymphs? One of the dead women was Dane’s ex-wife and his brother’s present wife. Is Zeb involved?
This is not just a paranormal book but it is a great mystery, a real who-done-it and why. There are romance, murder, kidnapping and secrets. Will Aura tell Dane who and what she is? Will they save Natalie before it is too late? Could there ever be a relationship between Aura and Dane? I recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal and a really interesting mystery. I did not realize who did it until the end.
Although this is book two in the series the books do not have to be read in order. Each book stands alone.”
The Avid Reader: 5 Stars *****
“…Montana Mustangs is filled with cowboys, murder and mystery and shape shifters. It will keep you up all hours of the night and day turning the pages wondering who is killing these women and why. You keep trying to figure out if Natalie is still alive and if she is you keep asking yourself where she is. Montana Mustangs has a little something for just about anyone you got your cowboys, romance and shifters. Oh did I mention Montana cowboys?
If you like reading books that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next then Montana Mustangs is the book for you. If you like cowboys then you just have to give Montana Mustangs a chance. It has plenty of cowboys, love them cowboys. Danica Winters is one awesome writer and I hope to read more of her work in the near future…”
Lynn B: 5 Stars *****
”From the very first sentence you will be roped in to this enticing story. From the moment that Deputy Burke meets Aura Montgarten you will be drawn in to the ups and downs of their relationship.
Aura has come to Montana looking for her missing sister but seems to be more successful at finding bodies. Though Aura knows that she should not get involved with Dane, she also knows that he is the one person who can best help her find her sister. Danica has woven a griping tale of mystery and romance as the search continues.
Danica creates characters that we can all relate to in one way or another. We may not have family members that are quite as ruthless as Dane’s brother Zeb but I think most of us have some family member that just rubs us the wrong way.
I strongly recommend this book. You will find that you can’t put it down. It has all you could want with the romance, the mystery and the wonderful element of the shape shifters. Wouldn’t you love to be able to be a wild mustang and run free?
I am all ready eagerly awaiting book 3 and I know you will feel the same way.”

“…I personally have never read a book about a shape-shifting Nymph who has a really long life span. Right there, I was intrigued and wanted to know where this story could take me. Aura is looking for her sister who went missing, Enter Dane the cop who is going to help her or just follow her around if necessary! I love the chemistry between these two. I love that Aura can push her thoughts to animals, so different! This is a dynamic story, paranormal, murder, mystery, romance….so many aspects all in one place! I cant wait to read more of the Nymph series and ANYTHING written by Danica Winters! I am now a FAN! Brilliant out of the box story!”
