About Animus:
For nearly a decade, Erika Rosencrans has carried on her dead father’s legacy to prove that dragons exist, but it isn’t only his old archaeology research that drives her. Dreams of a potently masculine, red-haired man haunt her sleep and leave her aching to know him in the flesh. She is only sure of one thing: the man of her dreams is a dragon locked in hibernation and she won’t stop searching until she finds him.
Red dragon Geva has lain in stasis for five centuries, petrified in the form of a man awaiting release from his stone prison. All he desires is freedom, however it arrives, and has little use for love. But when his dreams become inundated by a female whose charms baffle him, he can’t believe that a human woman such as her could possibly exist, much less be the mate that Fate intended to rouse him from his slumber.
When the sound of Erika’s voice finally breaks through Geva’s dreams, he knows without a doubt that his wait is over, and that Fate has sent him a female strong enough to crack the stone walls of his ancient heart.

This book is the first one I ever read of Ophelia’s, she will be a lifetime favorite author.
What would you do if you found your one true soul mate? Everything? Nothing? What if that future mate was a sexual dragon? Well to find out what Erika would do you have to read this awesome story.
Erika has spent her life trying to find the mystic dragons that haunt her dreams. When she finally finds what she is looking for in statue form she never thinks what she finds will come to life.
Red Dragon Geva has five centuries of sexual energy he has in him. When he feels his mate enter his chamber it wakes him up and makes him want something he has never experienced before. A life with someone.

About Tabula Rasa:
The first dragon has awakened, but the next requires a virgin sacrifice.
Brilliant, bookish Camille has been lusting over her fellow expedition member, Eben, ever since they entered the Sumatran jungle. Her shyness has thus far kept them apart, but now that they’ve breached the mysterious temple they’ve been searching for, things are getting even hotter, wetter, and steamier than the jungle outside.
Compelled by the irresistible allure of dragon magic, Camille discovers that she is the key to the second part of a ritual meant to awaken a race of creatures the world hasn’t seen in half a millennium. But it’s not just their awakening that depends on it—it’s Camille’s too, for unless she gives in to her carnal desires, she’ll never earn Eben’s attention and sate her own desperate hunger.
And all the while, the hard, sculpted figure of a white dragon beckons, willing her to shed her inhibitions and experience the greatest pleasure she’s ever known.

And all the while, the hard, sculpted figure of a white dragon beckons, willing her to shed her inhibitions and experience the greatest pleasure she’s ever known.

This is another steamy story that brings us to another level. There are more dragons to wake up and this one needs a virgin sacrifice.
I guess the main point of all these books is you have to remember they are fantasy. So seeing the love of your life have sex with someone else may not be something you can handle, but when you have lived for hundreds of years, that seems to be the dragons take on it. And for Camille and Eben (human and dragon) that seems to be okay for them. In this day and age, it seems to be okay for a lot of people. –> off soapbox now.
Another enjoyable story with lots and lots of sex!

About Gemini:
The third ritual awaits. But are twin lovers double the pleasure, or double the trouble?
After losing his twin brother, Dimitri has felt adrift in the world. Joining this expedition to find an elusive dragon temple seemed a far-fetched fantasy, but a much-needed distraction nonetheless. Little did he know that the real fantasy was waiting for him inside. Now, doused in dragon magic, his passions have been stoked, and the naughty details of the ritual he keeps hearing about lure him into a chamber where he’s faced with an impossible choice.
Two golden idols stand ready for his attention, each embodying half of Dimitri’s most intimate desires. Together, they form a whole—one he has been searching for even more desperately than he has this ancient locale.
The terms of the ritual dictate he can only choose one. Breaking the rules might lead to his downfall … or to an ascension into pleasure beyond his wildest dreams.

Twin Dragons, what could go wrong? This is one of my favorite stories. There is quite a bit of M/M action, so if you do not like that kind of thing this is not the book for you. But for a shorter story, you do get a good story and some great sex.

About Shadows:
When darkness falls, will Hallie fall too?
The whole reason Hallie even joined this expedition into the temple hidden deep inside the Sumatran jungle was to escape her demons. Yet the moment she arrives, the temple seems hell-bent on revealing every uncomfortable truth she’s fought so hard to keep hidden—and determined to plunge her into darkness once more.
But this darkness is of another kind. One whose phantom caress leaves Hallie panting for release in the middle of the night, only to awaken chasing shadows.
It’s not enough for just Hallie to awaken, though. She soon learns that she’s meant to awaken others—dragons, no less—by giving herself to the half-man, half-beast whose intense gaze and erotic ministrations truly redefine tall, dark, and handsome.
The darkness she faces now could chase away her own and finally give her a reason to stop running, but only if Hallie can learn to embrace the shadows.

I have to admit the shadow dragons are my favorite. They are dark and sneaky and just plain creepy but man I enjoy them.
Kol has been lurking all over and watching all the dirty deeds going on. When he sees Hallie he knows he has found his mate. Reading this book can kind of creep you out, to be honest, but it is so awesome on the same side. I really enjoyed it.

About Nexus:
Kris has never been touched. He’s about to make up for lost time.
Born to a race of creatures who strictly police their presence among humans, Kris possesses a gift only one dragon in each generation may possess—a human form which requires no magic to maintain. But he has paid dearly for this gift, as it has relegated him to a life of monastic solitude, exhaustive training, and an existence devoid of even a casual touch.
His destiny has always come first, and now that he’s led a group of explorers to the dragon temple as promised, his purpose is almost fulfilled. All that remains is to ensure each one of them couples with the dragons they were meant to—and then surrender his celibacy and shed his affliction.
He has long prepared for the onslaught of rapture required to awaken the dragons’ Queen. What Kris hadn’t prepared for was falling in love, yet the moment he sets eyes on the gorgeous purple dragon awakened by the others’ trespass into the temple, that’s exactly what happens. Can she help guide Kris in the final steps of his journey, or will his desire for her and her alone serve as the distraction that brings them all to ruin?

We finally get Kris’ story. He is the guardian that made sure all the humans showed up for the awakening. After everything that man has been through he is finally getting his due, and that means his own mate. Never did he think that he would ever be able to find or have someone of his own let alone a dragon. Find out what Kris and his dragon have in store for you.

About Ascend:
At last, the Queen awakens. Can the affections of a human male awaken the rest of the species, as well?
Corey isn’t like the other explorers who have entered the long-lost dragon temple deep in the Sumatran jungle. Whereas to his eyes, their predilections are hardly discriminate, he longs for a partner—a woman who will be his equal, who might love him as much as she challenges him.
What he’s presented with, however, is a woman who just might be his better. Racha, the Queen of Dragons, has awakened after five centuries of slumber, and she only has eyes for Corey, despite them hardly knowing one another. His reluctance to bed her delays the last and most crucial step in the ritual which will awaken the brood of dragons she rules, and though her beautiful, perfect form serves as temptation, Corey can’t bring himself to give up his preconceived notions of what love is.
The clock is ticking, and so is the time-bomb of power inside Rasha. Can she convince him to listen to his heart, or will the energy granted to her by the other couples’ unions consume them both?

We are at the end of this journey. Everyone has gotten their mates except the queen. It is her turn to get the Nirvana that is needed to wake her up. And she wants Corey, but he refuses to partake in anything that is going on. When he is met by the queen he feels the need to know her not just take her. I enjoyed this book the most.

About Samson’s Lovely Mortal:
Vampire bachelor Samson can’t get it up anymore. Not even his shrink can help him. That changes when the lovely mortal auditor Delilah tumbles into his arms after a seemingly random attack. Suddenly there’s nothing wrong with his hydraulics – that is, as long as Delilah is the woman in his arms.
His scruples about taking Delilah to bed vanish when his shrink suggests it’s the only way to cure his problem. Thinking all he needs is one night with her, Samson indulges in a night of pleasure and passion.
However, another attack on Delilah and a dead body later, and Samson has his hands full: not only with trying to hide the fact he’s a vampire, but also with finding out what secrets Delilah harbors for somebody to want her harmed.

This is the first book that I ever read of Tina’s and I was hooked. I love vampire and strong woman stories and Tina delivers on this story.
Samson is not expecting a strange woman to be banging on his door on a rainy night, but that is exactly what he gets. Delilah is in the middle of an audit for a company that she knows little about. When she feels like someone is watching her she gets scared and knocks on the first door she comes across.
Samson and Delilah are a great couple and the supporting characters are just as great. I loved this book and greatly enjoyed it.

About Amaury’s Hellion:
Can be read as a standalone
Vampire Amaury LeSang is cursed to feel everybody’s emotions like a permanent migraine. The only way to alleviate the pain is through sex. When he meets the feisty human woman Nina, a cure for his ailment seems within reach: in her presence all pain vanishes.
Unfortunately, Nina is out to kill him because she believes he’s involved in her brother’s death. And she would succeed if only Amaury’s bad boy charm didn’t play havoc with her hormones and catapulted her into his arms and his bed every time she was near him.
As every kiss brings them physically closer, danger is lurking and threatens to destroy the little trust they have in each other

God, I love this book. Nina is a mean ass bitch that has Amaury in her sights. Thinking that Amaury is the man that killed her brother she is on a mission to make his life end.
Amaury the biggest man whore you can find is intrigued by the little spitfire that is after him for an unknown reason to him. When he sees that she won’t give up on killing him. He makes it HIS mission to find out what is going on in his city.
This book has such a great story and the sex scenes are just freaking awesome! Love this book!

About Gabriel’s Mate:
After Maya is turned into a vampire against her will, vampire and Scanguards bodyguard Gabriel is charged with protecting her and finding her attacker.
Gabriel has never guarded a body as perfect as Maya’s. Moreover, Maya’s enticing blend of vulnerability and strength is difficult to resist. Yet resist he must. Even as the sexual tension between them rises and the rogue vampire closes in on them, Gabriel refuses to give into his desire. Despite the intimacies they share, Gabriel fears that if he ever reveals himself fully to her, Maya will react like other women have, running from him, and calling him a monster, a freak, a creature not worth her love.
Will Maya prove to be the one female who cherishes all that Gabriel is?

Poor Maya. This book starts out so sad with poor Maya being changed without her consent. When Gabriel finds her almost dead it takes everything in him not to find and kill the vampire that did this to her, right then and there. But her life is in danger and they need to get her safe.
Maya wakings up to find her whole life has now been changed and not knowing what is going on freaks out when she finds life is not what it seems. Vampires running around the house and trying to keep her safe.
Another great book by Tina!

About Yvette’s Haven:
After being kidnapped by a vampire hunter, vampire bodyguard Yvette’s first instinct is to kill the bastard. But before she gets the chance, she realizes that he was double-crossed by the witch he was working for and now is in as much danger as she is.
To get his brother out of trouble, bounty hunter / vampire slayer Haven has to deliver the young actress Kimberly to a witch. Unfortunately, she’s protected by the very creature he hates most: a vampire.
As Yvette and Haven try to escape their prison and rescue the actress and Haven’s brother, will their natural hatred for each other keep them apart or is the passion that bubbles up between them strong enough for them to dare risk their lives to defeat the witch from harnessing the greatest power of all?

Every story is different. After Maya’s story, we really got a look into Yvette’s story so it was nice to get her book next.
Yvette loves being a vampire, as she felt inadequate being a human woman. So having a vampire body she feels works for her. But when she meets Haven the witch she finds that life wishes sometimes are the same sometimes for a vampire as they are for a human.

About Zane’s Redemption:
The last thing vampire bodyguard Zane wants to do is to guard a hybrid, a half-vampire, half-human, whose father wants to keep her a virgin. Known for his violent temper and callous lack of compassion, Zane’s out-of-control rage, born of the cruelty he suffered during the Holocaust, drives him to focus only on revenge. Trying to find the last of his torturers is his only goal in life.
Portia is a young hybrid with a serious dilemma: in a few weeks, her body will be set in its final vampire form. If she is to avoid having to live out her immortal life as a virgin, she must find a lover in that short time–something her father hires Zane to prevent.
The moment Portia and Zane meet, rules begin to bend, and a forbidden attraction bursts into flames hotter than the hell of Zane’s past. But that past threatens to pull them apart unless they can overcome their prejudice, forsake hate for love, and revenge for forgiveness.

I can’t get enough of Tina‘s books. what a book. They are all wonderful and I am happy to say that I own all of Tina‘s books. they are fast, sexual, empowering, and just plain wonderful. the men are men (well vampire) and the women are women. there is no middle. Love that the women are strong but still feminine and the men are just right. Love that each book goes back to the others, so we have an idea of where everyone is. Again great books!

About Quinn’s Undying Rose:
Vampire bodyguard Quinn has lived the last 200 years as a playboy trying in vain to forget the only woman he has ever loved: his human wife Rose, who he believes to be dead.
But Rose is very much alive. Now a vampire herself, she has lived in hiding from Quinn all of these years, having faked her death to hide from him a terrible secret–one she knows would drive him to kill her.
When a powerful and evil vampire threatens to destroy Rose’s–and Quinn’s– only living descendent, she has no choice but to come out of hiding and ask for Quinn’s help. As Quinn struggles with the shock of Rose’s reappearance, and they reunite to battle a common foe, they rekindle the flames of their past. But will the passion that reignites between them be enough to overcome the secret that separates them?

This is a second chance love story 200 years in the making.
Rose has been in hiding from Quinn for almost 200 years afraid that he would have to kill her for something she did after she was turned.
Quinn not even knowing Rose is alive gets a shock when she needs his help to keep their last living relative alive. Will the love they had all those centuries ago still last now?
Such a great book!

About Oliver’s Hunger
Newly turned vampire and Scanguards bodyguard Oliver has trouble controlling his thirst for blood. Every night is a struggle against temptation, but when Asian beauty Ursula literally falls into his arms, he fears he will lose the battle over his inner demons and succumb to bloodlust.
Enslaved by vampires for her special blood, Ursula has just escaped her captors. She’s rescued by a handsome stranger, only to realize that he’s a vampire. He claims he wants to help her, but can she trust a vampire who’s not only lusting after her body, but also her blood?
Her promise to rescue her fellow blood whores compels her to join forces with Oliver and his colleagues at Scanguards. Will her choice lead to her salvation or her downfall?

This is a good book. As always Tina gives us a great story about a bad situation and love conquers all! A great addition to the Scanguards Series!

About Luther’s Return:
After twenty years incarcerated in a vampire prison, Luther is finally free. But before he can close this chapter of his life once and for all, a kidnapping thrusts him back into the world of Scanguards and into a confrontation with the vampires whose mates he very nearly killed two decades earlier.
Actress Kimberly “Katie” Fairfax has turned her back on Hollywood and now teaches drama at a college in San Francisco. When Scanguards owner Samson’s daughter disappears during a performance, Katie blames herself for inadvertently putting Isabelle in the path of danger. Realizing that Luther may be the only one who can rescue Samson’s daughter, she forges a tenuous alliance with the inscrutable stranger. As passion ignites between them, they not only have to fight against the unknown foe, but also against the darkness within themselves that could destroy them before they can rescue Isabelle.

About Alpha’s Temptation:
MINE TO PROTECT. MINE TO PUNISH. MINE.
I’m a lone wolf, and I like it that way. Banished from my birth pack after a bloodbath, I never wanted a mate.
Then I meet Kylie. My temptation. We’re trapped in an elevator together, and her panic almost makes her pass out in my arms. She’s strong, but broken. And she’s hiding something.
My wolf wants to claim her. But she’s human, and her delicate flesh won’t survive a wolf’s mark.
I’m too dangerous. I should stay away. But when I discover she’s the hacker who nearly took down my company, I demand she submit to my punishment. And she will.
Kylie belongs to me.

This is my first Renee Rose book and man what a great story. Mystery, romance, and intrigue. I loved these characters and this story. This is a must read!

About Alpha’s Danger:
“YOU BROKE THE RULES, LITTLE HUMAN. I OWN YOU NOW.”
I am an alpha wolf, one of the youngest in the States. I can pick any she-wolf in the pack for a mate. So why am I sniffing around the sexy human attorney next door? The minute I catch Amber’s sweet scent, my wolf wants to claim her.
Hanging around is a bad idea, but I don’t play by the rules. Amber acts all prim and proper, but she has a secret, too. She may not want her psychic abilities, but they’re a gift.
I should let her go, but the way she fights me only makes me want her more. When she learns what I am, there’s no escape for her. She’s in my world, whether she likes it or not. I need her to use her gifts to help recover my missing sister—and I won’t take no for an answer.
She’s mine now.

This time we get Garrett, whom we met in the first book. Mr. Alpha himself finds himself a true mate where he least expects it. Amber gets visions but never has she seen anything like what she sees now that she has met her new neighbor. This is a wonderful book and a must read!💟💟

About Alpha’s Prize:
MY CAPTIVE. MY MATE. MY PRIZE.
I didn’t order the capture of the beautiful American she-wolf. I didn’t buy her from the traffickers. I didn’t even plan to claim her. But no male shifter could have withstood the test of a full moon and a locked room with Sedona, naked and shackled to the bed.
I lost control, not only claiming her, but also marking her, and leaving her pregnant with my wolfpup. I won’t keep her prisoner, as much as I’d like to. I allow her to escape to the safety of her brother’s pack.
But once marked, no she-wolf is ever really free. I will follow her to the ends of the Earth, if I must.
Sedona belongs to me.

I loved this book. It is such a great story of Sedona and Carlos. Carlos and Sedona are forced to be together over a full moon. And for two werewolves, that is asking for trouble. Sedona was raised by a very strong family and doesn’t take crap from anyone, but she does want Carlos. And Carlos is trying to get his pack to work together. But old times are still pushing their way through. Carlos has a fight on his hands when it comes to his pack and with keeping Sedona his mate. Is he man enough to do it all? Is Sedona strong enough to fight for what she wants?

About Alpha’s Challenge:
How to Date a Werewolf:
#1 Never call him ‘Good Doggie.’

I’ve got a problem. A big, hairy problem. An enforcer from the Werewolves Motorcycle Club broke into my house. He thinks I know the Werewolves’ secret, and the pack sent him to guard me.
#2 During a full moon, be ready to get freaky
By the time he decides I’m no threat, it’s too late. His wolf has claimed me for his mate.
Too bad we can’t stand each other…
# 3 Bad girls get eaten in the bedroom
…until instincts take over. Things get wild. Naked under the full moon, this wolfman has me howling for more.
# 4 Break ups are hairy
Not even a visit from the mob, my abusive ex, my crazy mother and a road trip across the state in a hippie VW bus can shake him.
#5 Beware the mating bite
Because there’s no running from a wolf when he decides you’re his mate.

I loved Foxfire and Tanks relationship. Foxfire is such a great chick and doesn’t take any crap from Tank. Even when he is totally serious and threatens to punish her, she comes back with a smart ass remark. I mean you have to love that.
Tank, is sent to make sure Foxfire doesn’t know or give away any secrets of the werewolves. But the chemistry that he feels for her is getting in the way.
A really good and enjoyable book.

About Alpha’s Obsession:
A werewolf, an owl shifter, and a scientist walk into a bar…
Sam
I was born in a lab, fostered out to humans, then tortured in a cage. Fate allowed me to escape, and I know why.
To balance the scales of justice. Right the misdeeds of the harvesters.
Nothing matters but taking down the man who made me what I am: A monster driven by revenge, whatever the cost.
Then I meet Layne. She thinks I’m a hero.
But she doesn’t understand—If I don’t follow this darkness to its end, it will consume me.
Layne
I’ve spent my life in the lab, researching the cure for the disease that killed my mom. No late nights out, no dates, definitely no boyfriend.
Then Sam breaks into my lab, steals my research, and kidnaps me. He’s damaged. Crazy. And definitely not human.
He and his friends are on a mission to stop the company that’s been torturing shifters, and now I’m a part of it.
Sam promises to protect me. And when he touches me, I feel reborn. But he’s hellbent on revenge. He won’t give it up.
Not even for me.

I LOVE this series. There are not many paranormal series out there that I keep up with, but this one is so worth it! The wolves are still fighting to keep their race hidden and safe. And the bad guys are playing by their own rules.
This is a great story and can’t wait for Nash’s!

About Alpha’s Desire:
She’s the one girl this player can’t have. A human.
I’m dying to claim the redhead who lights up the club every Saturday night.
I want to pull her into the storeroom and make her scream, but it wouldn’t be right.
She’s too pure. Too fresh. Too passionate.
Too human.
When she learns my secret, my alpha orders me to wipe her memories.
But I won’t do it.
Still, I’m not mate material—I can’t mark her and bring her into the pack.
What in the hell am I going to do with her?

I really enjoyed this story. I was excited to see Jared get his own story. Jared has major anger issues and knows this, so he never wants to have a mate. But he has a thing for one of the dancers at a club he bounce’s at.
Angelina is that dancer. She is in school to be a ballerina but loves dancing at the club. When she meets Jared it is instant sparks. But it isn’t until she hits him with her car (total accident) and sees that he heals extremely fast, that Jared is not normal. Now Jared has to stay with her for 2 weeks so that she doesn’t tell anyone. And to see if she is his mate.
This book is emotional and really steamy. The characters are well developed and are great together.

About Alpha’s War:
I MARKED YOU. YOU BELONG TO ME.
Nash

I’ve survived suicide missions in war zones. Shifter prison labs. The worst torture imaginable. Nothing knocked me off my feet… until the beautiful lioness they threw in my cage. We shared one night before our captors ripped us apart.
Now I’m free, and my lion is going insane. He’ll destroy me from the inside out if I don’t find my mate.
I don’t know who she is. I don’t know where she lives. All I have is a video of her. But I’ll die if I don’t find her, and make her mine.
I’m coming for you, Denali.
Denali
They took me from my home, they killed my pride, they locked me up and forced me to breed. They took everything from me and still I survived.
But one night with a lion shifter destroyed me. Nash took the one thing my captors couldn’t touch—my heart.
Somehow I escaped, and live in fear that they will come for me. It’s killing my lioness, but I’ve got to hide–even from Nash. I’ve got to protect the one thing I have left to lose.
Our cub.

I have been waiting on Nash’s and Denali’s story. We had hints about what had happened between them but not the full story. We knew that Nash and Denali had a bad start and that Nash is unhinged. But we had no idea what happened in that cage between them.
We find out their backstory and that they have a cub together. We get a beautiful story on how they find a way to come together and make a relationship work. And find the people that made them the way they are. Denali and Nash have a lot of work ahead of them, but it is such a great story to read that you can’t put it down.

About Alpha’s Mission:
THE MONSTER WANTS HER. HE WON’T BE DENIED.
I’ve become a monster.
I hear blood moving in people’s veins. Scent their emotions.
I want to feed. To hunt. To mate…
I’m no longer a human–my life is over.
I’ve left everyone I love. I’ve gone rogue from the CIA.

She needs my protection.
But if I don’t get my animal under control,
I may be her biggest threat yet.

Oh, poor Agent Dune. He had no idea what he was getting into the past few books. But now that he is fully changing into his wolf and has met his mate he is in for a whole new life. Dune is still getting used to his wolf, and everything that goes with it. Now he is trying to help his handler Annabel.

But she can’t figure out what is different about him. Yes, he is CIA and is suppose to be different when undercover and such, but there is just something that she can’t put her finger on.
These two have known each other for years, have worked together to keep Dune safe. But now they have to work closely together to keep Annabel from being killed. Will Dune be able to keep his wolf from claiming what he thinks is his?
Another great story from these two wonderful authors!

About Alpha’s Bane:
She ruined my life, got me thrown out of the pack.
The only revenge I crave is her.

Trey
I never thought I’d have a girl like Sheridan. A pack princess—beautiful, smart, one of the elite. She picked me. She gave me her heart, her innocence.
Hurting her was my biggest regret. But then she betrayed us all.
Now she’s back—sent to spy on our pack.
She wants revenge.
But my wolf…he just wants her.
Sheridan
He crushed my heart and broke my trust. I ruined his life.
Now we have to work together, and it’s killing me.
I want to hate him. But more than that…I want his mark.

I love this series. Yes, I have been keeping up with it, but you can read this one as a standalone.
We finally get Trey’s story and what a story it is.
Trey has been in love with the same girl since high school. But to save his mother and himself he walked away from everything he ever knew to protect them all.
Sheridan has loved Trey since the moment she met him. But she had a bright future and her parents didn’t want her to screw it all up for a boy. So when Trey broke up with her for no reason she figured it had to do with that. But when he disappeared and she had no other choice but to go to school, Sheridan made the most of it.
Years later they meet again. But will they let the same mistakes happen? Or will they finally admit they are fated to be mated and put their past behind them?

Singed

About Scorched:
Four sexy dragon shifters. One fiery dragoness.
I’m done with the dragon shifter lifestyle. No more Dragon Gatherings. No more fancy dinners. And most certainly no more hanky-panky with dragons at the shifter nightclub.
So what if I have wings and sometimes spew fire? It doesn’t mean I can’t find a nice human guy to live happily ever after with.
Now the fertility stone has been stolen, and I’ve been enlisted to help with the investigation. Unfortunately, that means I’m stuck at a billionaire’s villa with four smoking hot dragon shifters.
Whatever happens, I need to keep them from stealing my heart as well.


I really enjoyed this story. I love paranormal romances, and then you add the reverse harem side to it, and you have a winner in this story. Misty brings together four dragons and a female that is also a dragon but doesn’t embrace it.

Lyssa is asked to come to a gathering for the fertility stone that all the dragon males need to make babies. However, she doesn’t want anything to do with the mating. When the stone is found stolen, Lyssa is asked to stay and help out. However, will the need to mate overwhelm her?

I loved the four different dragons. The guys each have their different personalities and needs. They are all want something different from Lyssa but in the end, wants to love her for herself. Scorched is a great story, and I can’t wait for the next one!

About Singed:
Four hunky dragon shifter mates can be a lot to handle.
I’d always thought one guy in bed was enough. Now I have four. All the extra pleasure may be more than I bargained for…but it’s so good.
On top of that, the orestaia–the fertility stone–is completely inactive. Guess who gets to figure out how to heal it? That’s right. Me.
My plan of action is a bit fuzzy. Actually, really fuzzy. All I know is I’m supposed to head out to the red rocks and blue skies of Sedona to locate the infamous Dragon Oracle.
And if I can’t find her? Well, then everyone gets screwed. My sister stays sick. A sleazy oil tycoon keeps breathing fire down my neck. And pretty much all dragon procreation ends.
All of my hopes and dreams for a baby and a family can go straight out the window, too. See you later, dragon race.
I have to heal the orestaia. All of our futures are in my hands. No big deal. Right?


Singed starts right where Scorched ended. I enjoyed Scorched for the mystery and getting to know the characters. Singed brings us more sex than a story I think. Yes, we get a story I am not saying that, but this time around I have to say that if these characters are not screwing then Lyssa is talking about how she wants to screw one or all of them. So that is why I went down one star. I will continue to read this series because I am enjoying it.

About Incubus:
An incubus who feeds off the desires of others, Roth de Lis has never been denied the pleasure of a woman’s body…until now. Lilah, once a warrior maiden in the service of a goddess, languishes on earth after being cast out from the slopes of Mount Olympus.
Lilah will do anything to return home, including betraying Roth. As she spins her web of lies, Roth begins a slow, wicked seduction that eventually threatens to consume them both. But when Lilah’s deceit comes to light, will their torrid love affair be able to overcome a pact with the darkest of gods?

When I started writing this review I was really conflicted because this is such a good book, it hits everything you could want in a paranormal romance. But anything I seem to come up with didn’t seem to hit the mark. So here is what I came up with after an hour of debate.
Incubus is the start of what is shaping up to be the start of a wonderful series. Roth and Lilah are an unexpected couple which to say it takes a long time for them to get there. This wonderful story takes you from Mount Olympus to our world, to Hell. Lilah and Roth are complicated beautifully written characters that bring the paranormal world to life. This is a must read!

Sigil
Sovereign

About Sigil:
Not even the farthest corners of the universe can hide her from him.
Sovereign is coming to claim her. To capture his consort. To share her body with his brothers. And to fill her with his seed.
Designed to captivate, programmed to destroy, all Sigil desires is freedom–the one thing the beautiful, deceptive emperor cannot give her. To be loved by Sovereign is to live a life in chains.

Sigil: Irdesi Empire Book 1 is a Reverse Harem Dark Romance laced with complete power exchange and obsessive males who will stop at nothing to possess their woman.

So this is my first Addison Cain book and I don’t usually read Syfy/romance books either. But I thought I would get out of my normal and try something new.
Sigil is diffidently that. It did take me a bit to get into it just because I again am not big on syfy books so all the extra information about the planet and such is not normal for me. But once I got over that and the story got going I was fine. The Sovereign and Quinn’s relationship (if that is what you want to call it) is something not normal at all but is what is needed to save their people.
If you like syfy romance this is a great book for you. I am going to read the second book so I do recommend this read.

About Sovereign:
Sigil is owned.
Sovereign tends his reluctant consort day and night. His many Brothers lavish her with attention, each exercising their own brand of seduction to woo the grieving female.
Lies.
Within the empire lurks a dangerous secret—one Sovereign and his Brothers are willing to risk the empire, their lives, and even Sigil’s sanity to conceal.
Is that not the definition of love?

About The Forgotten Commander:
Our planet, Mortuus, is lost and dying.
A desolate place where a few lone survivors dwell.
My men have lost hope. Our future is bleak.
Longevity is a luxury we can’t afford.
The most we can hope for is survival.
We’ve all but given up when an opportunity presents itself.
Five females—a chance at a future.
Procuring these women went against everything I’d been taught, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
They’re ours now.
Asleep and made ready for breeding.
We won’t die out—lost and forgotten.
It’s our destiny to grow and once again inhabit our lonely planet.
I am Breccan Aloisius, the forgotten commander.
My people will have the future they deserve.
I’ll make sure of it.
My mind is made up…until she wakes and nothing goes as planned.

I have read a bit of Sci-Fi- romance novels some are hit, some are misses but I have to say this was a hit. K and Nicole bring a different light to the sci-fi range and I liked it.

In this series (for now) we get one alien and one female (we usually get a reverse harem theme going on), we have a male Breccan Aloisius who is the commanding officer who has come to terms with never having a future. These men know that they will never see a woman and have children. When a ship full of women are found they are kidnapped by Breccan and his men in hopes to bring a future to these men and their planet.

When Aria wakes up she is not too happy to find herself being kidnapped. At the same time Aria is not in a good place personally so maybe this is for the best if only she would let things ride out. If Aria doesn’t take stock of what she has now she might find herself in more danger than she ever has been before.

Although these two do find a happy ever after, it does end in a cliff hanger for the next couple. I can’t wait to see where the next book goes!
