Romance Book Review: Erin Tate, Celia Kyle's Jerek

Author: Erin Tate, Celia Kyle
Series Connection: Dragons of Preor
Genre: Sci Fi Romance

Purchase Link: Amazon

As War Master Jerek is expected to work out a deal between his people and those from earth to help his people find mates from earth. He expects this to be his last mission, because after more than 450 years he has yet to find his mate. He expects this means that he will start to slowly go insane.

While Jerek hopes to find mates for his fellow Preor, but not himself. He believes there is no mate to be found for him.

Jerek couldn't be more wrong. The first human woman the Preor meets, Melissa, turns out to be Jerek's mate. 

Not all the Preor are looking to mess up their gene pool by adding humans to the mix. Several of Jerek's men attack the ship before agreements can be made and nearly kill him. 

Melissa isn't too sure she is interested in being a mate to a Preor, but once Jerek is hurt, she steps in to help him recover. When mates spend time together who knows what can happen. 

Celia Kyle writes as Erin Tate for her Sci-Fi. The Sci-Fi books have a different voice from her shifter series. These stories are also a little more complex. Jerek is a strong dragon shifter who lives a lonely solo life. He has given everything for the past four centuries to make up for a terrible deed that his father has done. At the same time, Melissa is still trying to make up for the bad deed her brother committed. The two fit as a good couple. Those who enjoy sci-fi, shifter and romance will enjoy this story. 

What’s hotter than an alien with scales? An alien with wings and scales, not to mention a hot body. 

At 457 Preor years old, Jarek sen Claron is a dragon ready for his final flight into the skies. This voyage to Earth as the War Master of the third fleet will be his final assignment. Once he has helped his fellow Preors secure human mates, he will return to Preor before the madness of loneliness overtakes his mind. 

That all changes when he meets Melissa. Human Melissa with her sparkling eyes, bright smile, and body that would make any hot-blooded male drool. Unfortunately, she never registered as a Preor mate hopeful. No matter, the Knowing stretches between them and there is no way she can resist him. Until she does. 

Jarek wishes to give her the choice to mate him, while everything inside him screams to take Melissa beneath his wing, now. No choosing necessary. 

But should he draw her to his side when his enemies are circling? Many males do not believe the son of a Preor mass murderer deserves to have a mate. Can he survive the coming battles? Or will he die without tasting sweet Melissa’s lips?

Yet another of Gerri's assistants heads on a otherworld trip with Gerri and finds her shifter mate.

Cassie doesn't really believe Gerri when she tells her that she wants Cassie to go to another planet for a party for one of her former matches. Looking for an escape from her own life Cassie decides to take a chance and go anyway.

When she's there she meets sexy bear shifter, Talen, and decides a night of great sex is just what the doctor ordered. When she wakes the next morning with him gone, Cassie heads home.

Talen is excited to meet his mate, but trouble at home sends him away too soon and he misses the chance to tell Cassie she's his true mate. Only one thing to do is to go to earth and bring his mate back home.

Milly Taiden has worked her way into a formula on this series. There is an alpha male, a strong female who has been treat poorly because of her weight. This story reads well and offers a quick read of mindless entertainment.

Cassandra Grimaldi’s boss has lost her mind. Too bad. She really liked the fiery matchmaker. But when Gerri offers to prove aliens are real and multiple orgasms exist, Cassie can’t help but be curious. Who would say no to orgasms and aliens? Not this curvy girl! 

What’s a bear to do when his mate leaves him after he’s mated her? Talen Arctos goes to earth to claim sassy and curvy Cassie. Now if only he could figure out how to convince her to return to his planet with him without offending her…again. 

With a brother wreaking havoc in his clan and his pregnant mate thinking she’s a one-night stand, Talen has his work cut out for him. Good thing this bear isn’t letting his woman go. Even if he has to learn what groveling means.

Romance Book Review: Celia Kyle's Press Paws

Author: Celia Kyle
Series Connection: Buchanan Clan
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Kindle Worlds

Purchase Link: Amazon

Hannah needs a little break from her life before she is set to marry the leader of another werelion clan as a political mating for her clan. She doesn't have anything against the mate her father chose for her, but he isn't her true mate. Staying at her sister's place in Deals Gap, while she's away, Hannah finds herself in need of a handyman and runs smack into her true mate Ryland. 

Ryland is a lion/wolf hybrid. He moved to Deals Gap to be near her half brother, Hannah's sister's mate. Ryland has missed feelings when he meets his mate. She's a purebred and from from one of the oldest families of lion shifters. He hasn't had good experiences with purebred shifters in the past. 

Can the two get it together before her intended fiancé comes to take Hannah away and kill her truemate?

Not up to some of the funnier Celia Kyle books but not a bad continuation of the Buchanan Clan series. I liked her unique description of Ryland when shifted and his cross between lion and wolf. 

There’s no pause button in life? Ha! She’s just the fabulously fluffy werefeline to create one.
Hannah Buchanan is the oldest daughter to the Buchanan werelion clan leader, twin to Katie Buchanan, and… and blah, blah, blah. Hannah is a lot of things, but she refuses to be defined by her family and their connections. She’s more than an honorable, fertile womb destined for a political mating.

So she’s pressing the paws button and retreating to Deals Gap, North Carolina. Her adopted werebunny sister calls the small town home and it’s the perfect place for Hannah to hide. Then she meets the gaze of one green-eyed, black-haired, sexy as all get out werelion-wolf hybrid. He calls to her lioness like no one before. And, well, he should since… he’s her true mate!

Too bad for Hannah, her contracted mate followed her to Deals Gap and is determined to have her—even if it means murdering her true mate first. Will her mixed-breed mate be able to take down a pureblood werelion? Or will Hannah end up in a political mating after all?
