Feasted On: Dante’s Circle Series, Book 4

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 1901 KB | Release Date: April 12, 2014 | Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing | Obtained:

"Tangled Innocence" [Dante’s Circle Series, Book 4] by Carrie Ann Ryan

Author's Book Description : Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

As one of the seven lightning struck women, Nadie Morgan has known for a while now that her fate would be forever changed…and revolve around a certain dragon. From the first time Dante Bell saw Nadie, he knew she was the one for him. There’s just one problem–there’s another in his life he’s waiting on as well.

When Jace Goodwin, a bear shifter and Mediator, finally comes back to the human realm after years away under circumstances out of his control, his first stop is to Dante’s Circle where he not only finds his dragon, but the woman they both have been waiting for.

Once secrets are told and the sparks fly, Nadie’s new life becomes something she never thought possible. However there’s another realm at play and Jace and Nadie’s dragon will have to fight harder than he’s ever fought before to keep the life he’s waited eons for.

Warning: Contains one not-so-innocent human, a bear known for his bear-hugs, a tattooed and pierced dragon with a fiery temper, and a connection so explosive, you’ll be fanning yourself from page one.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Hit the ground running in this entertaining, thrilling, and heart-wrenching novel! In addition, to being a great addition to it's series this novel was one that I could not get enough of and did want to have end. Nevertheless, the series must continue so I guess that's okay. =0)

This trio, Nadie with her men, is a great match up from the very beginning. I especially liked how each of them handled each new "twist" that was thrown their way, as it seemed that even when one started to freak out the others were able to set them straight quickly, usually romantically, and move on to the next thing that came at them. It all made the flow of this novel work really well, which is one of the reasons I could not get enough of it!!

About the Main Characters:
• Nadie: Not as innocent as she appears to be. A virgin who doesn't want to be one anymore. Sick of Dante ignoring her. Ready to throw in the towel on the whole "mate thing" until Jace comes into her life. Will do anything and everything to protect her mates.

• Dante: One fierce dragon. Doesn't like conformity. Hates his family. Very old. Loves his bar, his mates, Jace's family, and his friends.

• Jace: A grizzly bear shifter who acts like a "teddy bear" when it comes to Nadie. A Mediator -- someone who goes to different realms to help solve any complications. Has known Dante for the past 80 years and has been actively searching for their third pairing (Nadie) throughout those years. Has a great family.

Together they prove just how inseparable they actually are and what they are willing to do to be sure they can stay together forever!

The only reason I didn't give this the full 5 stars that I wanted to, is because of the person who died. I know we only just met him (or at least I did since the only other book I've read in this series was book 2 and he wasn't in that one) yet as soon as we did I was hoping he'd be a mate with one of the other girls in the group. In the short time, you read about him in this novel you cannot help but like him, which is why I cried when he was killed. =0(

Overall, I highly recommend this novel and series to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Ryan and/or those who enjoy paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
She’d gone to sleep soon after Jace had left the night before, dreaming of dragons and bears and frolicking down a yellow brick road. Apparently her subconscious was a little illogical. ~ within Chapter 4
That was another thing she and her dragon would have to discuss.
He couldn’t keep treating her like fragile glass when it came to big decisions. Leaving her asleep while he went off to a group of paranormals that could hurt him classified as one of those things that he needed to at least mention to her.
Not just tell his messenger.
Apparently she was still a little peeved at that.
“Nadie, honey, I don’t know.” She winced at his honesty but didn’t interrupt him. “I have no idea what the Conclave wanted with him, and, fuck, I was so scared when Dante told me where he was going. I’m one huge-ass grizzly, and I wanted to cower under the table and hide the two of you away forever.”
She blinked at him. He needed to work on his whole don’t-freak-out-Nadie thing. ~ within Chapter 8
When had his life turned into a soap opera?
He used to be the nomadic hermit dragon with friends from other realms and no worries other than keeping others at bay. Now he had a potential war, two mates who he loved and didn’t want to leave, and now...this.
Dragon shit.
“Ready?” Jace asked from his side, his hand resting on the small of Dante’s back.
Dante relaxed for a moment, leaning into the other man. He closed his eyes, needing to regroup before they left. It wouldn’t do anyone any good for him to be a stressed-out basket case. He’d either end up throwing his mates in his hoard and hiding them from the outside or start growling and spitting fire at random dragons that dared enter his line of sight. ~ within Chapter 14

    Alice Grantham lost her fiancĂ© and her job, so she’s had to come home to Willow Park to live with her parents. To recover some sense of independence and security, she’s cobbled together different part-time jobs, including one as assistant to the pastor of her hometown church. Nothing seems to be going right for her. Even Micah, the pastor’s brother and the first boy she ever loved, is standoffish with her now.

    Micah has always been a prodigal son, but now he’s trying to put that lifestyle behind him. Then a five-month-old daughter he never knew existed is dropped on his doorstep, the result of one of his many one-night stands. He needs help from Alice to care for his daughter, but he can’t let himself hope for anything more from her than that. He can’t help but want it, though...

About the Author :

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

Book Excerpt :

Now, however, Alice was regretting her random impulse to put on a skirt that morning, since she was on her knees in front of the bookshelves, putting the last of the commentaries back in place.

At least no one was around to see her undignified position, with her skirt pushed up to her thighs to give herself freedom to move.

“Daniel,” a voice came from outside the office. “Daniel!”

She recognized the voice, but he was in the office before she could move or pull down her skirt. She froze as she looked over her shoulder, befuddled by Micah’s sudden appearance.

He seemed equally startled to discover her on the floor, after his eyes scanned the room for his absent brother. “Oh,” he said, standing in the doorway.

It took her a minute to pull herself together, but when she did she managed to smile. “He went to the hospital to see Mrs. Cooper.”

“Oh.” Micah was such a self-assured man that it was strange to see him so stumped.

Then there was a different sound in the office. It took Alice a few seconds to even identify it. It was so unexpected that she was sure it wasn’t right.

It sounded like a baby whimpering.

Finally, her eyes drifted down to something Micah was holding. A baby carrier. A baby carrier.

“Is that a baby?” she asked, her voice hoarse with surprise.

He looked down at the carrier as if he’d forgotten he held it. “Yeah.”

She scrambled to her feet, rather clumsily, and hurried over to look at the baby as he set the carrier on Daniel’s desk, right on top of the printed copy of sermon notes for Sunday.

She peered into the carrier and saw the baby—maybe four or five months old—wearing a pink sleeper. Her eyes were blue and grumpy, and her whimpers were quickly turning louder.

Instinctively, Alice reached out for the girl and pulled her up to rest against her shoulder, patting her back in a comforting manner.

Alice had always liked kids. She’d never had baby-fever, but she certainly knew what to do when one was starting to cry.

“What are you doing with her?” she asked Micah, who’d been staring at the baby with that same glazed look of bewilderment.

“I...I don’t know.”

“Well, whose is she?” Surely this baby hadn’t dropped from the sky into the back of Micah’s truck.

His features twisted slightly—maybe anxiety, maybe disbelief. “That’s the thing. I think...I think she’s mine.”

Made the Grade: Wilde Creek Series, Book 2

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 369 KB | Release Date: April 10, 2014 | Publisher: Self-Published | Obtained:

"The Alpha’s Heart" [Wilde Creek Series, Book 2] by R. E. Butler

Author's Book Description : Alpha wolf Acksel wakes up one morning in the bed of a woman he’s had a crush on since high school. Brynn Mara was the one human who had been friendly to him in school and now, ten years later, she is snuggled up at his side, smelling like passion and sweet dreams. Even though Acksel has declared that his pack members can mate with humans from now on, he knows that any woman he takes as his mate will have a target on her back. Especially if she’s a fragile human. Deciding it’s better to cut things off than string her along when there is no hope for a relationship, he leaves without a word and ignores her.

But it doesn’t matter if Acksel acknowledges her or not, because their one night of passion has left a permanent reminder of what happens when one drunk wolf forgets protection. Angry, banished wolves from his pack discover Brynn’s secret and decide to use her against Acksel. His worst fears have come true and the only woman that ever touched his heart is now suffering because of his mistake. Can he save her in time? This book contains one pissed-off, emotionally damaged alpha, the human woman who can tame him, and a sweet little surprise that no one expected.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! This unique paranormal romance brings together two mates who have wanted to be in each other's lives since grade school but because of pack politics, they stayed apart ... until now.

I really enjoyed the setup of this series, especially the world that it's set in and how everyone is aware of shifters but shifters are still finding out how to change their rules/laws for the better too. Plus, I loved the characters (main & secondary)!

Together Acksel and Brynn even each other out. She brings out his sweetness, where he brings out her fierceness. In the end, they turn into better people because of everything they go through. As well as, prove to themselves (along with Acksel's pack) that they're worth all of the trouble that comes along with being together.

I can't wait to see where this series will go next, especially in book 3 "The Protector’s Heart!"

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Butler and/or those who like paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
With a contented growl, Acksel rolled onto his back and took her with him, pressing her securely into his side.  She peered up at him.  His eyes were closed but he looked happier than he had when he’d stumbled drunkenly into her home just hours earlier.
Giggling internally, she thought, I sexed him happy. ~ within Chapter 3
Dropping a swift kiss to her forehead, he left the room, leaving the door cracked.
“You said I could have clothes,” she said loudly as he walked down the hallway.
“I didn’t say when,” he answered.
“Asshole,” she growled and he chuckled as he went into the kitchen to cook for his mate. ~ within Chapter 12
“What makes you think that she’s my mate?”
“Well, your eyes are flashing like Acksel’s do when he talks about us being mates.  And this is going to sound weird but you smell different now.  Spicier.”  She groaned.  “Ick.  I can’t believe I just said that.”
He blushed sharply.  She was smelling his arousal.  Well, he wasn’t going to clue her in to what the scent was.  Clearly the baby was having an effect on her, giving her some of their wolf tendencies. ~ within Chapter 18
