The on her annual Black Friday shopping spree with her sister, Shana meets a mysterious man. One who is about the change her world. Kenny is an American Indian who teaches Shana about his world through just one short visit. That night she experiences a strange encounter with him, but was he really there with her or was it a strange supernatural tribal ritual?

Different from many of today's erotic romances, Paul Lonardo weaves a tale of mystery, Native American Heritage and eroticism that might just knock your socks off. This is the first book I've read by this author and I will say that the theme was so different from many erotic romances, I'd be interested in checking out some more of his titles. You'll have to give it a try to see what you think.

One other note: Form what I've seen on his Amazon list, it seems that Paul Lonardo has a wide selection of novels to choose from. Not only does he write romance, but also other non-fiction, fiction and biographies. 

Description:

I had my life all planned out...until I met him. Kenny Honana is sexy and alluring. Mysterious. I'd always been drawn to the Native American heritage, and now I found myself dream-deep in a supernatural tribal ritual. Little did I know, his vision quest would involve me in a sexual odyssey beyond my wildest dreams. But when the quest is over...what becomes of us?

Romance Book Review: Emma Allsyn's Bear Queen

Bear Queen
Author: Emma Allsyn
Series Connection: Royal Bears
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance

Purchase Link: Amazon

❤ ❤ ❤ 

Queen Izobelle is a little bored and looking for someone to take on a little romp. Since her husband betrayed her years ago, Izo doesn't trust easily and isn't looking for a mate. Now some hunk of a bear/man like Clan Chief Malvin Dacus might be fun for a night, but a little too complicated to get involved with for Izo's taste. 

Malvin is at the Queen's kingdom in hopes for a rich mate to help but some much needed money into his own kingdom. He first thought of mating Izo's daughter, but it turned out she was already taken. Now he wouldn't mind spending some time with the mother. 

It isn't until Malvin spends some time with Izo that he realizes she just might be his mate, but while he's trying to figure out how to court the Queen of a neighboring land, Malvin's sister is out for Melvin's seat as ruler and she will do almost anything to get it. 

This is book three of this series, but it is the first I've read. It didn't seem that I'd missed too much, aside from the first meeting of the Izo and Dacus. That doesn't mean that it wouldn't be best to read the first two book to the series before moving on the third. 

I loved the Queen. Izo has a little wild in her. There is nothing demure about her. She's also willing to fight for her male. Malvin is a young hunk of a man. He has a lot of worries, but is still out to have a good time. The two together are dynamite. Neither is calm and both area alpha and rulers in their own right. This book is more of a fun romp, than a sweet romance. 

Description:
The Bear Queen has a fence around her heart. The Alpha Clan Chief has an ax to chop it down. Their enemy lurks, waiting for an opportunity to strike...

Izobelle Sahakian, a Bear Queen renown for her beauty and wit, rules Casakraine with an iron fist. She struggles not to succumb to her desire for the most unsuitable alpha male at court- the leader of a foreign country.

Malvin Dacus, Clan Chief of Talogroth, must seduce a rich bride to save Talogroth. His mission derails when a matebond sparks to life with the headstrong Queen.

But difficulty casts a shadow over their wary, intense courtship. Malvin must end the rebellion of his older sister before she rallies the Clans against him or has him killed. Izobelle may help- but first she has to learn to trust. Will she accept their bond before it's too late, or will the dark side of her past destroy her final chance at happiness?


This is a steamy paranormal bear shifter romance with adventure, court intrigue and family dynamics for readers who enjoy reading about strong, complex heroines and fierce, protective alpha males. 3rd in the Royal Bears series, includes opportunity to download a bonus Happily Ever After short story at the end.

She swore she would never get involved with a military man just like her father and Rendan appears to be just like him. 

Now that he has found his mate Rendan can't let her go and needs to figure out how to make her his. 

As usual, Celia Kyle has a knack for world building and sci-fi fans will love the future earth. This book adds to the other books, but showing more information on how much the world has changed. One of the most fun was when she describes how Carla is excited about the chance to was dishes because she gets to put her hands in real water during the cleaning process. 

The story includes some suspense as well, as not everyone is happy about Redan's search for a warrior partner and causes a bit of a ruckus.

Description: 
Violence is never the answer… unless you’re a Preor warrior. 

Rendan sen Tarkan, Offense Master to the Preor Third Fleet, has found his human mate. She is small compared to him, but her curves, delicious scent, and sky blue eyes call out to his soul. He has waited for a female for over two centuries and he will fight—kill—any who dare attempt to take her. Even one of his own males. 

One moment Carla was unemployed and the next she was on the Preor battleship, working as a nurse for human-Preor mates. Oh, and the next moment? That was when she found her sexy, alien pink-scaled mate. Then she watched the muscular dragon shifter get beat to hell. And then she was assigned a condo in Preor Tower on Earth. The person in the condo next door? That sexy, alien pink-scaled male. 

Learning about the proud alien warrior isn’t trouble free, but it’s easier than almost dying. Yeah, almost. But the Preor who tried to end her life? Well, he doesn’t quit easily. She only hopes Rendan is there to save her when the alien tries to end her life once again.

What a nice way to check out a variety of authors who focus on shifter stories. Hot Shifter Nights feature 10 short stories form today's paranormal authors, some you may have heard of and some you may just get to experience for the first time. 

Of the 10 stories, I did run into one I had already read, but since I'd enjoyed it the first time, I didn't mind reading it a second time. One story was part of a serial, but peek my interest enough to check out the continuation of the story. 

While I can't say that all the stories are worth a Five Heart Review, but right off the bat, the first story "Damnation" drew me in and got me checking out more stories by Anna Lowe who was a new author to me. 

Another new author to me was Marie Mason. I fully enjoyed "Stranded with the Wolf". 

"Liam's Bride" by Emma Alisyn was the book I had read before and wound up getting the rest of the series to read after I read it the first time. 

Below is a list of all the stories.

Romance Review: Leslie North and Elizabeth Lennox's The Sheik's Desires

The Sheik's Desires

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Author

Description
Get four breath-taking sheik romances from two of your favorite authors - all in the same boxset!

The Sheik’s Challenge by Elizabeth Lennox 
When she sings, she sounds like a cat in heat…but Ana, a brilliant mathematician, stuns and surprises Najid del Sabur, Sheik of Safir. Her bright eyes defy him and her smiles sooth him, while her body makes him lust for her. But can he catch her? Can he convince her that her past won’t hurt their future?

The Prince’s Challenge by Elizabeth Lennox 
She can’t sit still. She’s beaten every nurse and doctor on her floor at cards. And she’s achingly beautiful. But is she friend or foe? Having been caught in the line of fire by a bullet meant for his brother, Prince Jual del Sabur, Minister of Defense for Safir can’t decide if the lovely Sonya was part of the assassination attempt or innocent and just caught by bad timing. All he knows is that he is definitely caught by her startling eyes and her soft sighs as he explores that question. 

The Sheikh's Untraditional Lover by Leslie North
Ultra-traditional and devastatingly handsome Prince Zafar Tadros thinks a business/sports complex is not what is needed for his country—but he believes in helping his family. With the region increasingly doing more business with Western companies, his father Sheikh Ahmadi has ordered this new business/sports complex to be a mix between West and East cultures.

Zafar has decided he will work to integrate as much traditional elements as possible, but Belle Mooney, an innovative American architect has taken her direction from Zafar's father and is going for innovations. The two clash over designs—and only one can win. 

The Sheikh's Stubborn Partner by Leslie North 
With the deadline fast approaching, playboy Prince Adyan Tadros must supervise the only construction company that will take on the job of building the business/sports center in less than six months. The meticulous Edna Abbey has taken over her father's construction company while he recovers from a stroke, and the last thing she wants to do is rush the project. But with attraction between her and the Prince growing everyday, she may be glad for the distraction...

The series includes four stories all about two sets of brother Sheikhs finding love.

Elizabeth Lennox's two stories include stories about half brother Sheikh's, Najid and Jual. Sheikh Najid falls for the young math wiz, Ana. Ana is all for a chance to spend so time with Najid, but a future with the Sheikh in charge of the country isn't something she's sure she's up to.

Jual is all about protecting his family at all cost, but there is something about Sonya that he wants to learn more about. He just can't decide if he should trust her because something about her story is making him think she's hiding something and if she is could she be in on the threat to his brother's life?

The set of books also includes a nice conclusion to Leslie North's Tadros, featuring twins Zafar and Adyan, feature each twin in their own story and the women who are very different from the women they are used to as their love match. I loved Belle's character. She wants so much to prove to her family that she can be her own woman and Prince Zafar is so traditional and conflicted about his feelings for Belle. Even though this is such a short story you still have the chance to really relate to the couple how they find what they need in each other.

Amy has just been fired from her job and gotten rid of an ex that was less than desirable. Now she needs to figure out what she's going to do with the rest of her life. She decides to leave her big city life for a while and head out to the woods to rethink what she wants to do with the future and maybe paint for a bit. 

Dry Creek isn't like other forests. The forest is under the protection of bear shifters who are just waking from a long winter's nap. Griff is a bear shifter forest ranger. It is hit job to not only protect the forest and the people that live around it, but also protect a cave that has special powers. The bears know that war is coming. The lions used to protect the forest and the cave and they want it all back, but the bears can't let that happen. The bears know that the lions have been sniffing around and looking for a weakness to attack.

Amy doesn't know any of this. She sees a beautiful wilderness area where she can be alone and have some "me" time. She wants to try her hand out at painting and hopes to visit some of the pretty sites and paint. 

Griff is Amy's new landlord he tries to warn her that the forest is dangerous and stay close to the cabin, but Amy is stubborn and doesn't want to listen. Griff maybe handsome and she certainly is attracted to him, but this is "me" time and Amy wants to be on her own. 

Griff falls for Amy pretty fast but this isn't the time to get involved with someone. If the lions see that Griff has a weakness they'll use it to their advantage.

This book is a re-release with some rewritten parts. For the most part I like Griff, he tries his best not to be, well, an overbearing bear even though you can tell that isn't in his nature. No pun intended. Amy I have some serious problems with. Maybe if she was this stubborn in her last relationship she wouldn't have even started a relationship with her jerk of an ex. 

I don't want to send off an spoilers, but I'll say I wish the writer would have set the beginning of the ending scene a different way. It just made Amy look a little stupid that she had gotten herself in that mess to begin with. 

I liked the role of the villain, he was just the right amount of creepy. 

I do believe this book is worth a read, and although the book has a HEA for this couple, there secondary story of the war between the bears and the lions is ongoing and if you want to know what happens there, you'll have to read the rest of the series. 

Description: 

Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.

Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

Romance Book Review: Jennifer Blake's Lancelot of the Pines

Author: Jennifer Blake
Series Connection: Louisiana Knights
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Steel Magnolia Press

Purchase Link: Amazon

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 

Mandy runs into hiding in small town Louisiana after her husband shows up missing and someone tries to kidnap her. To make matters worse the police are skeptical as to whether she offed her husband or not. 

When police deputy Lance, short for Lancelot (there's a story behind the name), shows up at her doorstep she wants nothing to do with his kind of help. It doesn't take long before the everything blows up on Mandy. Soon she's running with Lance from killers and she learns her husband was violently killed. 

Lance doesn't trust beautiful women who marry for money and as far as he can see Mandy is just like his ex who thought he had all kinds of money. 

Good start to a three book series on three cousins from a small town. I liked both characters, flawed in their own way, but working to be better people. Good prose throughout the story. My only true issue was when it came to the background story. There were a couple of intense scenes that include encounters with the bad guys, but in the end the case is solved without much work throughout the story. 

Description:
Bullets, betrayal and forbidden love--Meet Deputy Lance Benedict, the first of the Louisiana Knights...

CHIVALRY LIVES IN THE SULTRY SOUTH!

Mandy wants only to be left alone; she knows nothing about the disappearance of her much older husband, and less about the thug who tried to abduct her. Forced to hide out in a backwater town, the last thing she needs is an overbearing deputy's protection.

Lance, saddled with the protective instinct that goes with the name of Arthur's most trusted knight, is stunned by his reaction to Mandy's courage and beauty. But is he putting his life on the line for an innocent in danger--or for a Black Widow?

Fever Claim 
Author: Marie Johnston
Series Connection: The Sigma Menace
Genre: Shifter, Vampire, Paranormal, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services LLC

Purchase Link: Amazon

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 

Started reading this old series that began in 2014, to get the background scoop on Marie Johnston's new series "Pale Moonlight" which have the first book coming out at the end of the month. The first book is called "Birthright". 

In the first of the Sigma Menace series book, Fever Claim, readers are introduced to Jace. Jace is the brother of Maggie, the heroine in "Birthright".

When Cassie is dumped a couple of weeks before her wedding Jace knows he has a chance to finally make his more. Cassie doesn't know anything about shifters, so he knows he has to take this slow. 

Time isn't on his side though, after one wild night with Jace, Cassie gets a call from her best friend Kaitlyn and and learns very quickly what shifters are. Jace helps her and her friend out of trouble, but Cassie isn't sure how to take on what is going on in the world. 

Jace and Cassie have more problems than just figuring out their mating. Someone evil is after Cassie and Jace and it will take everything that Jace has to protect his mate and all the understanding Cassie can muster to understand this new world she's been sucked into. 

So far I am liking this series and am interested in reading this full series and moving to the new series that begins with Jace's sister. 

Description:

After being ditched only weeks before her wedding, Cassie Stockwell wasn’t out looking for a hookup. Then the devastatingly handsome bartender she’d been trying not to obsess over for months offered to give her a ride home. What could one night hurt?

But will one night of passion keep his little human by his side once she learns of his world and the danger it brings to her doorstep?

Get the whole Confessions of a Mail Order Bride series together in one set. 

Vic lives in a shifter town with a lot of shifter friends who all find it hard to get mates. He comes up with an idea, a shifter matchmaking site. 

The idea begins to take off when his friend Adrian, a lion shifter, meets his mate Sherry. 

In Lion's Love, Sherry over hears some of her co-workers talking about a new website where women can meet shifter online and see if they are compatible mates. Sherry isn't so sure she wants to apply to the website, but some mean girls at work sign her up.

Once she gets to meet Adrain, Sherry just can't believe her luck. And Adrian isn't too unhappy with the match either. 

And so the story goes. Throughout each book, friends of Sherry's gets to meet their match. In the background, bad things are happening around town. Someone is starting fires and sending a message to the local sheriff while they're at it. That mystery is explored in the background story of each book. 

Although it isn't necessary to read all of the books in the story and they can be purchased separately, it is nice to have the whole series in one set. It gives a chance to read a each love match takes place. 

While the stores are really short and usually feature one or two really erotic love scenes between each of the characters, the underlying story is interesting and makes the novellas stronger. I particularly like the last two stories, Tiger's Tease and Bull's Beauty. 

Tiger's Tease features a mix match pair if there ever was one. This story I wish would have been a little longer so their story had a chance to develop. This is the story between the Sheriff Dirk Matthews and Ava Adams. Ave is a former drug addict, who spent a little time in jail. She also sports a lot a tattoos, piercings and purple hair. Not exactly a match made in heaven for the small town sheriff. This relationship could have been a fun to explore some more. 

The final story in the set Bull's Beauty finishes off the mystery of who is setting the fires and who killed Vic and Max's mother, which we learn about in the first story. 

The first book, Lion's Love, is a kindle freebie right now if you want to check out the series before purchasing the set.

Romance Book Review: Celia Kyle's Kozav

Kozav

Series Connection: Dragons of Preor
Genre: Scifi Alien Romance, Shifter Romance, Dragon Romance

Kozav is a Primary Warrior on the Preor ship. He and a group of his men are injured and sent to a hospital on earth, but none of the doctors want to work on them and leave them for dead. 

When nurse Grace Hall arrives at work, she sees the Preors and immediately gets to work trying to repair the damage. Unaware that she is being fed information from the Preor's mating experience, she is able to help all the aliens until their own healers arrive. 

When Kozav wakes from his injuries back on the ship he realizes something is different and the "knowing" kicks in. He knows that sometime while he was unconsious he met his mate, now all he has to do is find her. 

When he finally does, he finds that helping his men has cause her health issues and takes her back to his ship where his healers can help her. But when she wakes all Grace can think about is the fact that she has obligations back at home. 

It doesn't help that not everyone on the Preor ship is happy that yet another human mate has been found. It seems Kozav and Grace have a lot to work out before that can have their HEA. 

This story had all the elements of one of Celia Kyle's entertaining stories, but something is holding me back from giving it a "5 Heart" review. I liked Grace and the fact that she has so much going on in her young life and just plows forward to make the best of everything. She has two jobs and takes care of her mother at all costs. 

She is a very independent woman and that certainly makes her very different from the kind of woman, Kozav sees himself with. I don't really think the story had a chance to touch on that very important issue. Compromise is talked about, but with the current situation on the ship, I can't really see this as a place where Grace would thrive, which makes me think she would be very unhappy in that situation. Making this couple not so compatible. 

That said, it is a good read and an interesting addition to the series, where the author goes into more detail about earth before the aliens came. 

Description:
Kozav found his mate and then he lost her. Now it’s time to hunt… 

Grace Hall is a nurse, not a doctor. But when five Preor warriors are brought to the emergency room and the doctors won't touch the aliens, she steps forward. One warrior draws her more than the others. His teal wings, muscular body, and pain-glazed eyes have her torn between two desires — needing his touch and desperation to heal him. She’s going to save the Preor males, even if it kills her. When she loses consciousness after healing them, she realizes it just might. 

Kozav sen Aghin, Primary Warrior of the Preor Third Fleet, wakes on the Preor battleship fully healed yet plagued by a feeling that something is wrong. And something is… Kozav's mate was left behind on Earth—alone and unprotected. Unacceptable. Kozav's guilt for his actions in the past still plague him and he is determined not to fail again. The curvaceous, green-eyed, dark haired human female is his to protect, his to claim and his to keep. 

When someone attempts to murder Grace, Kozav is prepared to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Even if it means killing one of his own. Or will it be Kozav with a sword through his chest?

On one of her first days at work in a new town and a new Veterinary Clinic, Delaney is covering to the older doctor who is about to retire when she meets war veteran, rancher, and shifter, Leif. She is immediately attracted to Leif and after spending a day with him, helping an eagle who has hurt his wing, she decides to take a chance with him. Little does she know all the baggage he brings with him.

Leif has been going through women since his return from Afghanistan. He doesn't know what he's looking for. While other shifters are looking for their mates to share with their brothers, he has decided he wants to be a lone wolf. The he meets Delaney and all that has changed. Not the lone wolf part, he's sure he still wants that, but taking a Delaney for a mate may just be what he wants. That is until one of his brother's begins to take an interest in Delaney, as well. 

This is a short novel with a lot of depth. Leif is the perfect hero type with a lot to figure out after coming home from war. Delaney is a strong heroine who can take care of herself. This book is well written for a short erotic romance, however there was a lot of what I like to call "F" bombs floating around that I thought was unnecessary and a little off putting as it didn't seem either of the characters were the type to use that kind of language. 

Description:
Lone Wolf is a standalone novella with no cliffhanger. 

When curvy veterinarian Delany Nichols meets sexy rancher Leif Pierce, sparks fly, but Leif is a wolf shifter with a past, and his brothers have expectations that he'll share his future mate. Leif's oldest brother, Wyatt, wants Leif back as part of the pack, for Leif's own good, but Leif is determined to be a lone wolf and keep Delany all to himself. 

When Leif's secrets catch up with him and threaten to tear he and Delany apart, Leif must confront his demons and his brothers, and convince Delany he can be trusted with her heart. 


Reader Note: This book contains hot sex and adult language. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like stories about true love, finding a mate, and sexy shifters and curvy girls, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!

I always say this before reviewing a Diana Palmer book, so I'll resay it again—Diana's style isn't for everyone. I like her bold heroes and her young feisty heroines. A lot of reviewers spend their time criticizing  the fact that the women are virgins, which many believe is just not the norm in today's world, but she always has a sensible reason why this is so for each individual woman. Another issue that tends to come up often is the fact that for this one small Texas town there seem to be a lot of mercenaries, FBI and Texas Rangers, but I say hey this is a romance novel Diana's world can be anything she makes it within the pages of her book. With that all in mind, lets get down to the details on this story. 

Sari and Merrie are two young women who live with their millionaire father. Dad is very over protective, for reasons you learn in the story, and hires a bodyguard to keep watch over the girls. Dad is also very abusive, but the girls keep this as a secret for fear of what will happen to those they hold dear. 

Paul is the bodyguard. He is very fond of both girls, but Sari is special to him. Paul hasn't come to grips with a tragedy from his past and is using his time as a bodyguard for the girls to heal, but as with most men in Diana's stories he isn't doing the best job of it. 

When his relationship with Sari get a little to close for comfort, Paul decides its time to move on. He knows that neither he or Sari is ready for that next step. He leaves in the worst possible way and breaks Sari's heart. 

Flash forward three years later, Sari has finish law school and is working for the local DA. Her father is getting worse and is in big trouble and is still way over protective. 

Paul is now working for the FBI and gets sucked back into Sari and Merrie's life. Now Paul needs Sari's trust, but after everything that's happened in their past is that possible?

Paul is a little different from many of the heroes that live in Diana Palmer's books. He isn't quite as arrogant and really does care for Sari and Merrie. This is one of the reasons why I liked this book so much. Also, she goes into a lot more detail about the before time with the two and how their relationship started, making it seem a little slow moving in the beginning, but as you get further in the book, you can appreciate why that was necessary. 

Sari is like most of the heroines in other novels within the series. She pushes and she works hard through many heartbreaks in her life, but eventually you pulls through in the end and makes something happen with her life. 

Where the story went a little wrong for me is how Paul leaves Sari's life with a lie that seems uncharacteristic of him, plus their relationship issues at the end of the book, that also seem out of character for him. 

One of the best parts about this book is that there is a good deal of suspense that runs through the pages, much better written than in recent books in the series. I liked it. 

From the sound of it Merrie's story is in the works for the future sometime, which should prove to be interesting. 

Description
The man who shattered her trust is back to protect her… New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer delivers a breathtaking story of second-chance love. 

When Paul Fiore disappeared from Isabel Grayling's life, he told himself it was for all the right reasons. She was young and innocent, and he was her millionaire father's lowly employee. Three years on, Paul is the FBI agent assigned to Isabel's case. Too late, he realizes what life in her Texas mansion was really like back then—and how much damage he did when he left. 


Once love-struck and sheltered, Isabel has become an assistant district attorney committed to serving the law, no matter how risky it gets. But right now, the man she can't forgive is the one thing standing between her and a deadly stalker. She knows Paul won't hesitate to protect her life with his own. But if she can't trust herself to resist him, how can she trust him not to break her heart all over again?

Lindsey wants to right a wrong her grandfather committed to honor his memory, but the local werewolf pack doesn't want her anywhere near them and is trying to push her away.

Lindsey is stubborn though and determined to do the right thing. When she meets Grif, a werecat and leader of the Redstone Clan, she isn't sure that getting involved right now is the best thing to do.

After a family tragedy Grif decides to take his younger sister on a trip to help her heal. When he runs into a woman who is being harrassed by a local shifter group Grif can't help but come to her aide. He knows that he has strong feelings for Lindsey, but because she isn't were, Grif can't understand the connection. 

I'd missed this story, which was published in 2013, but when I came across it I remembered that Grif was mentioned in another Bianca D'Arc books and decided to read check it out. I liked Grif and was happy to see that he had his own story. I thought Grif turned out to be an interesting character, but Lindsey was another story. At first I liked her, but town the middle of the book I felt the story started to pull away and Lindsey went from a strong character to a little whisy-washy. 

Description:
Griffon Redstone is the eldest of five brothers and the leader of one of the most influential shifter Clans in North America. He seeks solace in the mountains, away from the horrific events of the past months, for both himself and his young sister. The deaths of their older sister and mother have hit them both very hard.

Lindsey Tate is human, but very aware of the werewolf Pack that lives near her grandfather's old cabin. She's come to right a wrong her grandfather committed against the Pack and salvage what's left of her family's honor - if the wolves will let her. Mostly, they seem intent on running her out of town on a rail.

But the golden haired stranger, Grif, comes to her rescue more than once. He stands up for her against the wolf Pack and then helps her fix the old generator at the cabin, making it habitable for her while she completes her task. He's friendly and all too attractive, but she has a job to do, regardless of the cost to herself or her budding relationship with the local handyman.

When she performs the ceremony she expects will end in her death, the shifter deity has other ideas and turns the tables on them all. Grif's dual nature is revealed and Lindsey learns there is much more going on than she thought.

Thrown together by fate, neither of them can deny the deep and true attraction between them. They come together, but in the end will an old enemy rip them apart?

Warning: Cats are frisky and they get up to all sorts of naughtiness, including a frenzy-induced multi-partner situation that might be a little intense for some readers. You have been warned.

Dragon of Preor series continues with scenes from the fight on the ship as the Primary Master of the ship, Taulan, fights to keep control of his ship. 

After losing his wings in battle, Taulan feels he is unworthy and just wishes to go back to his home planet. Now healed he serves as a protector to the princess of the Ujai race. Still fighting with his feelings of inadequacy Taulan brings his charge down to the beach, where he meets his mate, Lana. 

Lana, running from her abusive ex-boyfriend, uses a false name to get a job at the Ujay compound. Waiting on the beach for her job interview, Lana sees a young child in distress in the water and runs to the rescue. But being the good samaritan isn't always the best idea, especially when she winds up in the Ujay prison. 

Taulan isn't about to let his mate be detained by the Ujai, but her release comes with a price for Lana. 

Good reading for sci-fi fans. As in the other books so far in this series, the world building is great and the characters are likable and work well together. Don't have to read the rest of the series to enjoy this book, but it would worth the reads to check out both the stories about the Preor and the Ujai. 

Description:
He wants to return to Preor and she wants a job, but you don’t always get what you want. 

Lana Cooper is down to her last hundred dollars, has no job, and her clunker of a car has finally clunked out. How has her life become such a cluster of horribleness? Oh, right. A guy. Only she doesn’t get a chance to beg for a job. Nope, one walk along the beach changes everything. Oh, she has a job now… as the mate to a hot, hunky Preor dragon male. 

Taulan sen Pavon is anxious to return to his home on Preor. Yes, he’d journeyed to Earth in hopes of finding a human mate, but now… Now he would like to heal in the privacy of his aerie. Wings destroyed and body damaged by an explosion, he has no desire to watch others find joy with their mates while he remains unworthy and alone on a ship filled with thousands. But then he finds Lana. Lana with her alluring smile, sparkling eyes, luscious body, and whose mere presence initiates the Knowing. 

Can he live long enough to claim her? Can she see past her father’s prejudice to love him? Both questions are pointless because there are still Preor who despise the joining of humans and dragons. They will stop at nothing to drive a wedge between the races. Including murder.

Rae's twin Rubi hasn't forgiven her for the fact that the accident that took Rae's leg took the lives of their parents. They had to spend the rest of their childhood in an orphenage. While Rae grew up to be a sweet person who is happy to let life happen and be happy that she is alive, Rubi wants more and more and what she wants is a piece of the D'Alessandro fortune. 

She might have been able to achieve her goal, if only Yvan didn't find out that Rubi was also having an affair with his father. When he first confronts Rubi she blames her twin sister, but when Yvan finds out that her sister is an angle, compared to Rubi's evil he turns the tables on Rubi and marries Rae instead. 

For Yvan Rae may just turn out to be the angel that Yvan needs to turn his life around. Ruby on the other hand can't stand that her sister is getting the life Rubi thought she deserved and will stop at nothing to get. 

This is an suspense packed novel packed into 88 pages. While that alone would be enough for the story, I wish that the characters would be a little more developed and a better love story was able to develop between Rae and Yvan. But if your looking for a good quick read, it is worth the purchase price. 


Description:
Loving you, lusting for her.

Yvan D'Alessandro likes his women the same way he likes his business—exclusive and under his control. Unfortunately for him, he finds out that the woman he's been sleeping with is having an affair with another man on the side. Furious, Yvan plans to exact a special kind of revenge on his cheating lover.

All he needs is the help of her sister, Rae Santos…


Sick and tired of having her life stolen from her by her vindictive twin sister, Rae accepts the proposition her sister's new flame, sexy businessman Yvan D'Alessandro, offers. Unfortunately for her, it's not long until she finds out that she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

Romance Book Review: Rebecca Airies' Sabotaged Desires

Author: Rebecca Airies
ISBN: 9781603100533
Genre: Ménage a Trois, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Futuristic
Publisher: Red Sage

Purchase Link: Red Sage

❤ ❤ ❤ 

Taking readers into the future and a spaceship leading the inhabitants to a new world, Rebecca Airies introduces Suz, Robert and David. When they took on the assignment of colonizing a planet, Suz, Robert and David were picked as a triad. None knew each other before they got on the ship and were married, so when Robert is sent a message and told that Suz betrayed him, he believed the note and didn't give Suz a chance to explain. 

When Robert is confronted to handle the tense situation their relationship had become, they realize that the person who sent the message had put them in more danger than just ruining their marriage. Now it is up to them all the save the day before the whole ship parishes. 

Lots of three way loving going on in this book, almost to the extent as everything revolves around the sex and not the background story. I'd have liked a little more of that in the story, but for those who like a lot of Ménage a Trois in their stories, this is a good one for you. 

Description: 
Suz Lore thought she had everything she wanted, a job as an engineer and a position on a colony ship headed to another planet. That was before her arranged ménage marriage with Robert Smith and David Bradford turned into a disaster. She’d thought they were building more than a sizzling sexual relationship, but all they do is argue now. 

She isn't surprised when they're sequestered in a room in order to reignite the passion between them and learn to trust again. Robert believes she betrayed him while David is stuck in the middle of their conflict. Getting Robert to talk about what made him angry is difficult, but they discover there's far more behind their problems than a message with misleading information. 

A virus has overtaken the ship's computers, put them on a different heading and cut them off from all communication. They must work together to find a way to survive and rebuild their relationship.

Reader Alert! 
Suz didn’t expect more than companionship from her arranged marriage, but she isn’t willing to give up the undeniable passion and security she’s found in Robert and David’s arms. Robert may be the captain of the ship, but he’s going to find that in marriage, the captain does not have the final say.

To My Readers: Sabotaged Desires began as a “what if” writing exercise. What if there was a woman trapped in a box with two men. Sounds deliciously wicked, doesn’t it? When the characters stepped into the scene, the story became explosive. They kept me wondering how they’d work through their problems and find their happy ending.
