Made the Grade: Oh, Canada!/Alien Abductions/Moonbeam Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 181 KB | Release Date: October 2011 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com | Originally Found Out About @ Ellora's Cave

"Lust by Moonbeam" [Oh, Canada!/Alien Abductions/Moonbeam Series, Book 1] by Cynthia Sax

My Book Summary : Catherine (Cathy) has always felt alone, ever since her parents died when she was a little girl she has felt out-of-place and never fit in with anyone even when she tried. Now she's visiting Moonbeam to prove that the dead tree o-rings they have are either naturally occurring or a hoax thereby to disprove the small town's alien landing reports, which won't win her any friends in Moonbeam either. Yet when she first arrives she meets Veterellec (Rellec), who the towns people call Frank, the owner of the property that she'll be studying and a man who turns her on like no other...

Now if she only can trust her heart not to fall for him before she is ready too she might be fine. That is if she can get over his beliefs about being an alien and all...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! One woman is about to learn the meaning of love at first touch.

Cathy and Rellec's story is sweet and erotic! His world is seems a bit confusing to me in the explanation, and I'd love to see a drawing of what he really looks like (since his ridges vibrating is hard to imagine sometimes), but I liked how these two came together and fight for each other. Also, this novella does have quite a few funny spots, mostly because Rellec still learning Cathy's slang words of the English language. =0)

The only reason I didn't give this novella a higher rating is that the two of them are too much of exhibitionists for my taste. Which I know might seem weird because it is a book and I can't see them, it's still the truth of the matter.

Nevertheless, I do recommend this novella and series to anyone who likes sci-fi erotic romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
“The thrusters obliterated the trees.” Although Rellec slowed his pace, Cathy’s heartbeat remained joyfully erratic, her pulse jumping each time his broad shoulders brushed against her smaller form. “The thrusters are too powerful or the trees are too delicate. I will adjust the thrusters first.”
“That’s all you can adjust.” She narrowed her eyes. The Ministry wouldn’t appreciate him mucking around with genetics. “And the thrusters are used for?”
“Our transport vessels, my Cathy. The thrusters enable the transport vessels to leave the surface of your blue and white planet. The gravitational pull is very strong.”
Cathy stared straight ahead, keeping her face carefully blank. Damn it. He was hunky and hot for her, so, of course, he was also batshit crazy. ~ within Chapter 1
“He thinks of me as some sort of breeding...cow?” He wouldn’t ever love her, not in the way she loved him, and when he found out she didn’t know how to be a mother or a daughter-in-law or a wife, he’d hate her. Cathy rubbed her hand over her face. This was her biggest disaster yet in a life filled with disasters.
“That comparison is unlikely, as large domesticated ungulates are not native to Sila.” Vern waved a beeping wand over Cathy’s head and frowned, the ridges on his forehead condensing. “Hmmm... Your thought processes are not logical, yet you do not have damage.”
Cathy narrowed her eyes at the young alien. “I’ll give you a tip, Vern. When you meet your own prospective breeding cow, do not tell her she’s illogical. We don’t like hearing that.” ~ within Chapter 5

Feasted On: Kiss My Ash by Reneé George

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 222 KB | Release Date: November 26, 2014 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Kiss My Ash" by Reneé George

Author's Book Description : A werewolf who’s hairless in full shift.

A water sprite who can’t hold his shape at the slightest touch of water.

An ash-tree nymph with a black thumb who kills every bit of flora in her vicinity.

That’s Fortunate, Missouri, in a nutshell—the town for abnormal paranormals. Nymph Romy, however, can one-up them all—her particular flaw is killing her. But thanks to a possible love spell, the wolf and the water sprite could be Romy’s key to cheating death. And the three misfits may find that even imperfect creatures can still create a sexy, loving, perfect union.

Inside Scoop : Sol, Romy and Lucien love each other—emotionally, spiritually and physically. Which means both ménage and male/male action. You lucky reader, you.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Three people move to Fortunate in hopes of finding better lives for themselves (ones where they won’t be the outcasts anymore) and end up saving each other in surprising ways. But are their feelings for one another based on true love or spell?

Can everyone join in together and just say, AWWWWWWW!! This novel was that sweetly erotic! While the sex scenes were very hot, it was the intense plotline and the dynamic characters that kept me wanting more from this novel. What Romy, Lucien, and Sol have is an instant connection that ties them together even when they doubt themselves. I enjoyed reading about how they come into their relationship and the funny little pixies who “help” them.

I recommend this novel to those who like erotic paranormal/fantasy romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Shut the fuck up.”
“Nice.” He raised a brow. “Bitchy much?”
Even though she was certain Sol was gay, it didn’t stop her from having some wicked fantasies about him. After all, the man was hot-hot and knew how to dress. “Takes one to know one.”
“Someone woke up on the wrong side of the oak this morning.” Sol scooped a handful of topsoil and pitched it at her.
“Oh no you didn’t.” In retaliation, Romy grabbed a nearby hose and squeezed the nozzle trigger, dowsing Sol where he stood.
“Stop!” Lucien yelled.
Too late. At Lucien’s shout, Romy turned, the spray of water slapping across the man’s face—and Lucien instantly melted into a clear puddle on the greenhouse floor.
Mortified, she dropped the hose. “Oh no!” She shook her head and stumbled forward. “What have I done?” Not only was she a plant killer, apparently she was a man killer as well. ~ within Chapter 1
“What the hell?”
“It’s a pixy.” Mathias walked toward the window and stepped up on yet another stool for a closer look. Sol followed.
The pixy’s face was red as he beat his wings and sword against the pane. Sol tapped on the glass. “Hey, I recognize this little guy.”
Mathias seemed mesmerized as he stroked the window. “Oh, where from?”
“Let’s just say we had a close encounter and leave it at that.” Sol wasn’t about to tell Mathias about the sweaty, naked sex with Romy that had led to the pixy incident. “Maybe we should pull out the pesticide.”
“You’ve got to be kidding. Pixies are good luck, boy.”
“Hasn’t been my experience.” After all, the damn thing had interrupted him and Romy right when he’d been warming up.
“Nonsense.” Mathias reached up, turned the latch on the frame and tilted the window open. The pixy flew inside.
“It’s about freaking time, you backside of a banshee!”
Out of the side of his mouth, Mathias whispered, “Maybe I spoke too hastily about the pesticide.”
Before Sol could say, “I told you so,” the pixy was off on a rambling tirade. ~ within Chapter 11

Made the Grade: Valhalla/Mail Call Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 279 KB | Release Date: November 1, 2009 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com | Originally Found Out About @ Ellora's Cave

"Planet Mail" [Valhalla/Mail Call Series, Book 1] by Kate Pearce (aka Catherine Lloyd)

My Book Summary : Douglass works as a United Planetary Parcel Service (the UPPS) delivery pilot. She's now heading home from her latest delivery/mission when her space craft crash lands on Planet Valhalla, a world completely different then Earth, then gets unwittingly immersed into it's society by becoming the King's consort. Her life being turned upside-down is tough but the King eases her into it while promising to help her get home to her son. As they spend time together and get to know one another, they end up falling in love. Yet, what will happen when a woman, from before the King and Douglass got together, shows up at the palace to inform the King that she's pregnant with his child? Will the King commit to Douglass and their love or will he give her up for good so he can bring follow through for the good of his world? Especially once Douglass' rescue ship arrives to bring her home...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Fall into a world of sexual delight on Valhalla! Fast paced, thrilling, and highly erotic, this novel has enough going on to keep you interested from beginning to end! While the characters are entertaining too! In addition, Douglass & Marcus are an interesting match up. With their different sizes to their opposing feminist views, they were quite the pair!

I recommend this novel to anyone who like sci-fi erotic romances!

“I want to make you mindless. I want you to give yourself up to my control completely.”
“Is this because I disobeyed you and left my suite?”
He chuckled. “Nay, although I will punish you for that too if you wish.”
She lifted her head to glare at him, saw the mixture of lust and amusement in his eyes and relaxed. He ran his finger over her lower lip and sighed.
“Consort, if you keep your promise not to go outside, I will allow you to train with your servers. I should have taken care of the matter sooner.”
Douglass studied him through half-closed eyes as he leisurely coated her nipples in scented oil. His concern for her seemed genuine. How did he know she had more to give? She had to leave this planet and return to her old life and her child. How would she feel if she gave him everything? Relieved that she’d allowed a man to possess her completely for once in her life or horrified by her lack of control? Would she yearn to be back with him or be glad to have escaped? ~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: Oh, Canada!/Big City Pack Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 158 KB | Release Date: April 2011 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com | Originally Found Out About @ Ellora's Cave

"The Canuck Werewolf" [Oh, Canada!/Big City Pack Series, Book 1] by Marisa Chenery

My Book Summary : Rylee gets roped in by her mother to take her younger teenage brother and two of his friends camping during the Victoria Day long weekend. It doesn't start out as a great trip for her and she begins to have a feeling that it's just going get worse. That is until she meets Atticus and falls head over heels for him instantly. If only his ex-girlfriend didn't happen to follow him to the same campground they are at trying to win him back, otherwise things might just be perfect.

That is if she can handle his secret too...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars--a werewolf finds his mate while trying to get away from domineering father/pack leader and greedy ex-girlfriends. Even though I'm not completely happy with how Rylee first handled the whole "werewolf" situation, yet it was somewhat understandable given her circumstances, I did like how everything quickly came back together for Atticus and her. Their quick romance is spicy and sweet to read about. I really liked how Atticus handles his "mating urge" and explanation to Rylee (his mate) a whole lot better than Roan did to his own mate in "Roan's Fall."

I recommend this novel to anyone looking for a quick paranormal romance that is slightly erotic.

Book Teaser(s) :
The teenage male, she sometimes thought, became retarded once puberty set in. ~ within Chapter 1
“Atticus,” she said on a whimpered moan.
He lifted his head and said loud enough to wake her, “I’m right here, Rylee.”
She jerked and her eyes fluttered open. “Atticus?”
“It’s me.”
“What the hell do you th—”
He cut her off by turning her head his way and sealing her lips with his. They remained stiff, but eventually softened as he licked and sucked, not backing down. Angling his mouth for a tighter fit, he stroked his tongue along the seam of her lips. Much to his pleasure, Rylee opened, giving him access to fully taste her. Their tongues met, twining, tasting. ~ within Chapter 4

Blog Tour - Feasted On: His Forbidden Submissive by Brandi Evans | Interview, Review, & Giveaway

Today I'm turning my blog over to Brandi Evans, who I interviewed about her latest novel "His Forbidden Submissive!!"

ALSO -- Be sure to comment on this post to be able to sign up for this tour's GIVEAWAY (listed below)!! [Blog Tour will run from July 30 - August 10, 2012]



My Q&A with Brandi Evans :

Jess : Where were you born and where do you call home?

Brandi : I was born in Ft. Smith, AR, but my parents moved around a lot when I was a kid (dad was active duty Army until I was in high school). So needless to say I really don't claim a home town. I just claim Arkansas as being my home.

Jess : Who or what was your inspiration to begin writing?

Brandi : I'd have to say it was the voices. *grin* I've always had an active imagination. Stories have been rolling around in my head as long as I can remember, but the writing itself came later. It all began one day at the evil day job. It was lunchtime. I was bored. And a story was born, LOL.

Jess : Please describe your hero, from "His Forbidden Submissive," in one to two sentences.

Brandi : Only 1 or 2? How unfair! :-)

Brock Michaels is manly perfection wrapped up in layers of leathers and tatts. He's equal parts raw sexual power and understanding lover.

Jess : Which of your characters would you most & least like to invite to dinner, from which book and why?

Brandi : Most like to invite to dinner is easy. Brock from "His Forbidden Submissive."

Who I'd least like to invite to dinner? Hmm, probably Kaia from "Tempted." She was a fallen angel with a particularly nasty side.

Jess : Is there one particular scene in "His Forbidden Submissive" that you’re dying for readers to read? Can you tell us anything about it?

Brandi : I’d have to say the scene where Brock first gives Vivian aftercare following their first night at the club. It's such a sweet, tender scene that makes me tear up every time I read it.

Jess : Which usually comes first for you, the character(s) story or the idea for the novel?

Brandi : The sex scenes. Always. I build entire stories around sex scenes. Yep, I have issues, LOL.

Jess : If "His Forbidden Submissive" were to be made into a film, who do you see playing the main characters and why?

Brandi : Brock would have to be played by the cover model who depicted him on the cover, LOL. As for Viv, I'd cast Morena Baccarin (ya know the chick from "V") in her role. There's just something about her I love.


Jess : In regards to "His Forbidden Submissive," if you could write it all over again, would you change anything about it?

Brandi : Not really. I mean don't get me wrong. I could read the story 10,000 more times and make changes every time, LOL. I think it was George Lucas who said good films aren't finished, they're abandoned. Well, that goes for books too. I could rewrite and tweak, rewrite and tweak, but eventually, you just have to let them go.

Jess : How many books have you written? Which is your favorite and why?

Brandi : Let me think...including books that haven't been published and those published under another name, 15+. I’m sure there are others, but probably 15 since really getting serious about writing.

Jess : Do you have any other projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

Brandi : I just contracted a new story for the Ellora's Cave for Men line. It's a smutty Quickie called "Game Night." Aside from that, I'm also working on the next book in the Restrained Fantasies series as well as a story for a multi-author series.

Jess : Do you prefer eBooks, paperbacks or hardcover? Any specific reason why?

Brandi : Ebooks almost exclusively. On my Kindle more precisely. I like that it reads to me when my eyes get too tired to see straight, LOL.

Jess : If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

Brandi : "The Voices Made Her Do It."

Jess : What do you normally eat for breakfast, or do you skip it and get straight to work?

Brandi : Mostly a no-caf herbal “coffee” called Teeccino plus a spinach and banana smoothie. Mmm.

Jess : List 3 books you just recently read and would recommend?

Brandi : "Blind Heat" by Nara Malone
"Game Plan" by Karla Doyle
"Stone's Embrace" by Delilah Devlin

"His Forbidden Submissive" by Brandi Evans

My Book Summary : Vivian (Viv) has beaten cancer and now she plans to take control of her life. Therefore, she has her attorney give divorce papers to her two-timing arrogant asshole of a husband and plans on finding out if the love she feels for the one man who stood by her side throughout her ordeal, her "ex"-husband's brother Brock, are true or not. However, in doing so Viv will find out more than she thought she ever knew about Brock. Will Viv like what she finds out? Will Brock return her feelings? In addition, when she is taken into the wild side of Brock's life will she be willing to give up her newfound control to someone else?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! Step into the world of BDSM with Viv and see how she manages to take her life from being unwillingly controlled to lovingly dominated! This novel was fun, intriguing, HOT, and sweet---one I didn't want to put down! I LOVED Brock!!!! He sounds so good natured and sweet with a wild side that cannot and will not be tamed!! Then throw Viv and his relationship into the mix and you have a unique love story that will put a smile on your face!

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys erotic romances, especially if they involve some BDSM!

- On a side note -
I hope Brandi will write stories for Stephen, Anne, and Steal since they were the major secondary players in this novel that really intrigued me to see where they were going!! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
“What the hell are you waiting for, Brock? An invitation? If so, consider yourself invited.”
He chuckled—but didn’t answer. Instead he ran his thumb between her folds. “You’re fucking sexy when you beg.”
His words made her smile. Of course he liked hearing that. He was such a guy. Maybe if she begged some more, got a little dirtier, he’d finally get the message and flippin’ take her already. ~ within Chapter 2
“Don’t beat yourself up, sweetie.” Anne draped an arm around Viv and hugged her close. “Your reaction isn’t exactly uncommon. I’m sure Brock will understand.”
“What if he doesn’t?”
“He will. As a group, we’re a particularly forgiving and understanding lot. Now come on...” Anne motioned a hand toward the table. “Let’s eat. You’re gonna need your strength before heading back to Brock’s because you are going back, aren’t you?”
Although she phrased her sentence like a question, it was clearly an order. A friendly order but an order nonetheless. ~ within Chapter 6

Book Excerpt :

He spun toward Viv’s voice. She still wore the same dress she had when she’d first walked back into his life, but now, her appearance had a different allure to it. She no longer looked sleek and stylish—she looked used and owned. Barefoot, her dress showing off wrinkles from being in a pile on the floor, her hair a wild mess from his hands, his bed, his pillows, she looked like a woman who had been well, well-loved. It’d be a hard-on-inducing sight if it wasn’t for the uncertainty scrunching her beautiful face.

He wanted to yank her into his arms and kiss her until that uncertainty evaporated. Wanted to throw her into his bed and stroke deep into her sweet body until she couldn’t think of anything else, but only once he came clean. He owed her nothing less.

“Yeah, I’m good.” He turned back to the desserts. Maybe after a sugar rush he’d be able to come up with the right words. “I was just wondering if I wanted to add some syrup to our ice cream. What do you think?”

She didn’t answer, but he knew she was still there. He’d heard no footsteps, nothing to indicate she’d moved in the slightest. “I think you need to tell me the truth. Why do you really want to slow things down? And don’t you dare think about lying to me.”

Christ. He wasn’t fucking ready for this conversation. He was still formulating his strategy. “Well, considering your upcoming divorce and the fact the man you’re leaving is my older brother, I just think it would be best—”

“Bullshit.” In a flash, she crossed the room then yanked on the sleeve of his t-shirt until they stood face-to-face. “You and I are fantastic together. You can’t honestly tell me you really want to pull the brakes on what we had…what we could have.”

No, he didn’t want to slow things down. “It’s...complicated, Viv,” he finally said.

“Then uncomplicate it.”

“It’s not that simple.”

“Bull. Shit.” She stepped into him until they were toe-to-toe.

The soft aroma of vanilla and sex teased his senses, and despite his good intentions, lust rocketed straight to his groin. His cock lengthened, hardened in a matter of nanoseconds. His hands fisted at his side and it took all his strength to keep from grabbing her and throwing her down on the kitchen table and pushing deep into her pussy until he created enough heat to bind reality and fantasy together.

Viv continued, whispering a line that threatened to completely and utterly do him in. “I’m gonna get the truth out of you, Brock, even if I have to chain myself to your side.”

“That’s a dangerous thing to say around me, sweetheart.”

Blog Tour - Made the Grade: Lust After Death by Daisy Harris | Review & Giveaway

Today I'm turning my blog over to Daisy Harris, with a review of her novel "Lust After Death," which is the 1st book in Love-Bots Series!!

"Lust After Death" [Love-Bots Series, Book 1] by Daisy Harris

My Book Summary : Bane is an assassin on a mission save a new love-bot “stein,” a re-animate human who has to do whatever their “master” says, that the organization he works for, the Zombie Underground, recently heard about. However, after rescuing over 30 steins throughout the years he is still unprepared to deal with the one he's trying to save, Josie.

She's beyond attractive, bright, creative, strong in her own ways, and innocent to everything around her. Therefore, Bane knows he shouldn't be with her even though he wants to. Yet when he finds out that in Josie's programming she is required to have a husband for her to survive Bane steps up to the plate to play that role.

Together they learn more about themselves then they ever thought they knew, so much so that there might be hope for them together after all. If only they can protect each other from Josie's “master” and the evil company he works for...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! A zombie-ish love that holds no bounds! This is a sweetly erotic novel that takes the term "finding your soul-mate" to a whole new extreme. Josie and Bane are "free" steins, which to me sound kind of like the cyborgs on Star Trek only being more humanoid then what that show portrays, and they are perfect counterparts for one another! It's a novel full of intrigue and I LOVED the cute little epilogue at the end!

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys sci-fi and futuristic romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
Josie scooted closer, until she nestled against the length of him. A little jolt of excitement shot through her to feel his firm backside against her hips, and she angled her body until those mounds pressed into the cradle of her groin. Of course, that necessitated her laying a hand on his upper arm for balance, and her face pressed between his shoulder blades.
“What are you doing?” The pillow muffled his voice.
Josie stopped shuffling, realizing she’d been pawing him. “Nothing, just getting comfortable.” Instinct told her to pull away and roll back to her side of the tent. Bane’s muscles felt stiff under her fingers. But she didn’t want to let go.
“I only have so much self-­control, babe.” ~ within Chapter 5

About the Author :

Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy Harris still isn't sure if she writes erotica. Her romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris's dismay the sex tends to get completely out of hand.

She writes about fantastical creatures and about young men getting their freak on, and she's never missed an episode of The Walking Dead.




Book Excerpt :

Drizzling rain filled the air as Josie clamored up the trail after Bane. Her feet swam in the rain boots he’d given her and she considered that he hadn’t really thought through this plan very well in not bringing her clothes from Adam’s house.

The path curved up a hill, through tall trees whose branches overlapped and wide-spanning trunks that dropped leaves the size of her head.

He hitched his backpack higher on his shoulders and cinched the waistband tighter on his hips. The move drew her attention to the way the smooth and stretchy material of his trousers hung from his behind. Her fingers tingled to reach out and pinch the bunched muscles of his buttocks.

That brief glimpse of his thoughts echoed in her mind. Clearly he hadn’t meant to do her harm and now that the shock faded, she observed it from a different angle. Josie wondered at the snippet, curious about where it might have led.

She ran her hands through the brush that rose around her. Each branch was filled with droplets. Spikes pricked on some plants, others felt smooth. One felt soft and downy at first, then stung her curious fingers and Josie pulled her hand to her chest. Her legs ached as they summited the hilltop.

Bane led her a small ways down the other side and he pointed to a small clearing. “It won’t be the softest night’s sleep. But I’m so dead on my feet I won’t care.”

Josie cocked her head to the side and noticed the way his body slumped forward and his feet dragged. “This’ll be fine.”

My Book Summary : After being on the run from her father for years, Allison (Allie) has carved out a life and friends for herself that she likes and doesn't want to give it up. Because of that Allie, tries to distance herself from anything that could be considered illegal in any way or from any man or "friend" that she considers could cause her trouble. Therefore, when she meets Marcus for the "first time" at the local park she knows right away that he's nothing but trouble. Yet, even though she knows better than to get involved with Marcus she is undeniably drawn to him.

Marcus is a shifter who, unlike most of his kind, is living among humans. Another reason he's different from his kind is because of his compassion to the hybrids (animals who have been given human brain capabilities) that he rescues from labs close to where he lives. However, the reason he first "stalks" Allie is because after one recent rescue he misplaces the pregnant cat he was rescuing and he believes that Allie has the cat. Yet every time that he tried to talk to her about "his lost cat," it seems that she ignores him. So, when they "meet" in the park he is surprised about their intense connection as much as Allie is. The only thing they both come to realize after their meeting in the park is that Allie suffers from face blindness, which is why she keeps meeting Marcus over and over.

When Marcus offers a way for Allie to overcome her face blindness she reluctantly agrees. Not long after they begin their "training," Marcus feels that there is a lot more to Allie then meets the eye. The question is will Allie be able to accept her uniqueness once it becomes apparent to her or will she strive for her "normal" world again?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this mysterious and playful novel wraps you up within the intense and intriguing world that the author created. Allie and Marcus play off of each other so well. I especially loved their personal growth with each other. Plus, the secondary characters were so fun!! I can't wait to find out what will happen to Jake, Ben, Maya, Seth, and the rest of Marcus' friends and family!! Mostly Jake since he just seems so sweet and cuddly that I hope he'll end up with someone good, I suspect Allie's sister.

With that being said, the only thing I didn't enjoy about this novel was Allie's constant denial about her feelings and how when she got to nervous, about either her feelings or the actions of those around her, the first thing she did was run away/separate herself from that person or place. It just got a little redundant after a while, even while I understood a bit of her resistance to change.

Overall, it was because of the full cast of characters within this series that made me like the novel as much as I did. And because of that, I would recommend this series to anyone who likes paranormal romances with a new twist on the "typical" shifter stories.

Book Teaser(s) :
He was staring at her with a look that was like being lost and found all at once. She tried to make sense of that impression. His reaction resonated in her, a fluttering high in her stomach that quickly settled into a calm that rippled outward, as if something important had found the place it belonged.
His fingers were in her hair, at first just a brush of fingertips, pushing a lock back from her face, but then curling in the soft depths and a fist followed. The tug of it went past the roots of her hair and into her belly, deeper than that, into a place she couldn’t acknowledge. She had to bite her lip to hold in an answering moan.
“Who are you?” he murmured, as if he was asking himself instead of her. ~ within Chapter 4
She was done playing his games.
But the idea had already taken root. It would feel so good.
“The man is a fucking sadist,” she gritted out between chattering teeth. ~ within Chapter 8

About the Author :

Like the heroine, Allie, in "Blind Heat," Nara is face blind and lived with the condition not knowing there was a medical explanation for her inability to remember faces. It’s a rare and only recently publicized condition. She hopes "Blind Heat" will help get the word out about face blindness.

Nara lives on a small farm in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. When she's not writing, she loves to run, hike, bike, and kayak. Every story she tells incorporates her love of animals, nature, and adventure.




Book Excerpt :

The greatest threats from a man were injury or death. She’d known how to read those kinds of threats in a man before she was old enough to read a book. She could see no intent to harm. No evil. He looked at her as if he’d discovered something precious. A warmth seemed to reach from his eyes into her soul, drawing her closer. She made her choice.

The red cloth shimmered with an aura of passion, dared her to press her body to it. The thought sent her blood zinging through her veins. There was something there, something irresistible. His eyes spoke promises she could feel. Her feet wouldn’t let her turn away, but took the risk. Took one step. Then the next. Her lips burned with a need to glide over his jawline, explore planes and angles with kisses and nips. Her heart hammered so loud he had to hear it even over the rain.

True to his word, he didn’t move an inch until she was right there in front of him, reaching to press her hands to the shirt, feel its heat, prove he was real. Her palms sighed with pleasure, like the fabric was a meal to be savored. His strong fingers closed around her wrist then, not painfully but with the finality of a manacle, reminding her that he’d said he wouldn’t let her go until he had what he wanted.

“Good girl,” he whispered, soothing away the little trill of fear that rose with his touch, stroking her face with the backs of his fingers. Her body sang like chimes in the wind, notes shivering down her spine.

“I won’t stop at a kiss,” he said. “But you can start with one. Make it sweet.”

She rose obediently to her toes, finding his lips, feeling them firm, parting under hers. He ordered and demanded with such a low, seductive tone. If he’d told her to go rob the jewelry store, in just the same way, it would have seemed a good idea.

He shifted, turning quickly so she was between him and the tree, cutting off any chance to change her mind and run. He held her face between his hands, and her own hands felt small and fragile against the breadth of his. He kissed his desire into her. Her mind grappled to reassert caution, but her thoughts slipped away, formless as water spilling through fingers. He didn’t stop kissing until she stopped thinking, until the rigidity in her muscles softened, until she kissed him back.

He tasted like spring rain.

His hands were warm through her soggy shirt, his fingers curved under her chilled breasts, his thumbs stroking over the tops. Thumbs and fingers came together, squeezing until she squirmed. His lips and tongue moved over her neck, tracing the line of her collarbone, a warm, sensual touch that made her whimper. He split the worn cotton with a sharp twist. The ripping sound jolted her. Her shirt split down the center, parting to offer her breasts. A wave of fear welled in her belly. of desire trickled between her thighs. She glanced down the puddled path. He pressed her tighter against the tree.

“You had your chance,” he whispered. “It’s the last I’m willing to give you for a while.”

Made the Grade: Foreign Affairs Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 246 KB | Release Date: June 20, 2012 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com | Originally Found Out About @ N. J. Walters' Facebook Post

"Misplaced Princess" [Foreign Affairs Series, Book 1] by Mari Carr & Lexxie Couper

Authors' Book Description : Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online—only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.

Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger—until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo...and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl.

When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end—or when Dylan finds out?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, this is a really cute and spicy novel! It’s about two people from opposite ends of the world meeting online who, after a while of talking/skyping each other, decide to meet in person. Nevertheless, while they talk about seeing each other they get their wires crossed and end up both finding out that they traveled to the others hometown ... and get their lives turned upside down. Annabel (Annie) finds herself quickly falling into lust with Dylan's twin brother Hunter while she spends two weeks on their station (ranch) in Australia .... maybe their feelings will turn into something more during their time together.

Hunter & Annie are a perfect match of opposites! Yet, they quickly find themselves fighting their growing passion for each other until they both become swept away in something neither wants to give up.

My only wish is that I was more captivated by this novel then I was. The plot was hot. The characters were sweet and funny. Yet, whenever I set the novel down to go about my day I didn't feel that rush to get back to reading it like I typically do. =0/

I recommend it to those who like contemporary erotic romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
“What’s the deal with the paparazzi? You an actress or something?”
“Dylan didn’t tell you about my family?”
Hunter shook his head. “Nope. Dylan didn’t share much about you at all. Showed me a photo of you a few weeks ago. Besides that and the fact you don’t read your emails carefully, I don’t know a thing about you.” Hunter didn’t mention the soul mate comment.
“I’m a journalist. I work for a magazine in New York.”
“Didn’t realize journalists were so popular in the States.”
She flashed him a dirty look. “It’s not my job that interests the press, it’s my name. I’m Annie Prince.”
He shook his head. “I’m still not following you.”
“Prince Incorporated?”
Hunter recognized that name even less. “Nope. Haven’t got a bloody clue what you’re talking about.”
“I guess Monet was right. She said there had to be somewhere on the planet where I could live incognito. Go Australia.” She raised one fist in a cheer for his country.
“I don’t know who this Monet is, but that’s not exactly true. You’re in Sydney and there are cameramen following you.”
She blew out a long, frustrated breath. “Yeah. My family owns and operates a huge conglomeration of newspapers, magazines, hotels and other properties. Our net worth is in the billions. For some insane reason, this makes us interesting to people. Not to mention the fact my dad is a bit of a glory hound, constantly doing stuff to draw attention to himself. My two sisters have followed in his footsteps and now star on the most inane, idiotic reality series ever to air on television. And I suppose everyone expects me to be the same, to want the same spotlight cast on my life.”
“But you don’t?”
God no. Did you see me pose for photos? Your ranch in the middle of the desert actually sounds like paradise.”
Hunter scoffed. “I think you’re the first woman, besides my mother, to ever feel that way. And it’s not a ranch. It’s a station.”
Annie ignored his correction. Maybe she was used to it. He’d heard Dylan tell her a time or two when he’d accidentally eavesdropped on their chats. She let out a wobbly sigh. “What the hell am I going to do now?”
Hunter studied her desolate face and was sorry Dylan hadn’t invited her for a visit. The idea of Annie spending a week or two on their family’s cattle station was very appealing. ~ within Chapter 1

Disappointmentville: Predators Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 260 KB | Release Date: October 2009 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Cat's Meow" [Predators Series, Book 1] by Nicole Austin

My Book Summary : Micah new that working as head of security at Nanotech Industries would not be a desk job but some place that would keep him active. However, he never expected the head of the company to use him as a test subject once he turned invalid even though he was asked before hand; his options were agree to join the "Predator Project" (having lion DNA inserted into his body) or be killed for knowing too much. Now all he can do is wait everything out and see what happens to him, while hoping Rebecca (a zoologist who was recently hired by Nanotech and a woman he's very interested in) wasn't involved with this project from the beginning...

Rebecca is shocked when she's brought into the "project" her new employer hired her for, even more so when she finds out that her most recent one-night stand (Micah) is the test subject and can now turn into a lion! Yet she still cares for him deeply and will find a way to get him free of Nanotech, even if that means risking her life for him on top of everything else going on between them and the changes in her life.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars, follow two people who already have a powerful attraction burning between them take on a company who are doing illegal experiments. I liked the relationship between Micah and Rebecca it was hot and sweet. Yet, this novel has a great beginning, an okay middle, but it was the last few chapters at the end that ruined it for me. =0( The part that ruined it for me was the way Rebecca handled things between Micah and her once he got out of the lab. In addition, I wished I knew what happened when Micah went back to the lab on his own since it wasn't mentioned at all in the novel so it felt like the story wasn't finished.

I recommend it only to those who are fans of Ms. Austin.

Book Teaser(s) :
The day-shift guard was making his rounds. Micah had nicknamed him Smiling Jack because the man always wore a cheesy grin.
“Mornin’, Lasiter. Sleep well?”
He muttered a banal response, distracted by the sight of Becca headed in his direction. His cock jerked to attention as his gaze swished from side to side following the subtle swaying of her hips.
Jack’s attention shot to her lithe body and Micah fisted the edge of the cot, trying to restrain the lion who wanted to claw the bastard’s eyes out. He agreed with the cat but had to stay in character. Part of Becca’s strategy involved his appearing to be lethargic and depressed. Jumping to his feet, rushing the bars and reaching through to choke the fucking grin off Smiling Jack’s face would hamper their cause.
“Jack.” Becca gave the man an absent nod of dismissal.
Hah, take that!
If he were less mature, Micah would stick his tongue out and blow raspberries at the other man.
Becca’s green eyes narrowed on him while she unlocked the door. ~ within Chapter 7

Made the Grade: Raptors Revealed Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 350 KB | Release Date: November 2009 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Feather Down" [Raptors Revealed Series, Book 1] by Lorie O'Clare

My Book Summary : Dover is an owl everyone goes to, to settle disputes among the species so they can (hopefully) keep the peace among them all. He was recently asked to fly to Banff so he could find out what the tension brewing between the species is all about and see if he can stop it. However, as soon as he pulls into town he finds himself getting distracted and a bit sidelined by Lana. She's an attractive female owl from a local and powerful nest that Dover cannot seem to get enough of, especially after their first meeting. Yet what will Dover do when he finds out that Lana has been keeping secrets from him so she can protect her nest (aka her family) that seems to be behind all of the tension in Banff to begin with...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, this is a novel about a man/owl shifter finding his mate and trying to prove to her that she is exactly the one he wants. It's a spicy and suspenseful novel that keeps you on your toes! I liked Lana & Dover together, their chemistry sparked off the page. Plus, I enjoyed finding out the dynamics going on in Lana's nest and in Banff.

The only thing I wished I liked more about this novel was how the plot played out, since it wasn't as straightforward as I would have liked. Not that I would have wanted to know how this novel was going to end right away, I just wish I could have liked what was going on around Banff and Lana's nest more so then what happened.

Overall, though, I recommended this novel to anyone who likes reading shifter romances, especially ones with unique breeds.

Book Teaser(s) :
His mouth opened wider, his fingers stroking her neck, encouraging her to take more of him. Lana greeted his deepening of the kiss with eagerness and her tongue moved with his, as if there were some sacred dance involved with kissing that she’d always known and forgotten until this moment. It was too much enduring the craving that grew inside her. At this rate he would make her come with a fucking kiss.
Focusing on the fact Heath would probably return soon, expecting her and her brothers to be here, helped ground her. Although even with that knowledge, tearing her mouth from his was harder to do than she thought. Not because he held her chin, keeping her where he wanted her, but because she didn’t want to end it.
Life sucked when she couldn’t have what she wanted. Lana forced her head to the side, taking on a bit of aggression of her own, and dragged in a deep breath. She inhaled the mixed aroma of their lust. It was intoxicating.
And the first thing anyone would smell when they walked through her door.
Crap!
Lana pushed against Dover’s chest. An overwhelming sense of satisfaction washed over her when she searched his face as she shoved and saw how dazed he appeared. His need and cravings got the best of him too. Another time and with another male capturing so much emotion on his face would be a hardcore turn-off. And it disappeared as she studied him, his cool, collected expression once again in place.
She wouldn’t grin, wouldn’t embarrass either one of them. Knowing she controlled him more than originally she might have believed was good enough. ~ within Chapter 7

Feasted On: Masks by Evangeline Anderson

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 151 KB | Release Date: November 2009 | Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Masks" by Evangeline Anderson (aka Emmaline Andrews)

My Book Summary : Chloe's identical twin sister (Zoe) asks her a favor, to switch places once again since Zoe sprained her ankle and Zoe needs Chloe to cover for her at work. However, right after Chloe reluctantly agrees to help out she finds out that her sister's actual job isn't an investment banker like she's told everyone she is actually a dominatrix! Now Chloe (who's really a shy First Grade teacher compared to her twin) has to dress up and pretend to "dominate" a man she has never met before! She is way out of her league, which gets confirmed when Chloe meets Zoe's client, a hunk of a man, who decides he would like to dominate Chloe instead of being dominated.

Thankfully, passion like Chloe has never felt before hits the instant the two of them touch but can she just have fun and enjoy their game of play for one night or will she loose her heart in the process?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! This sizzling novella will hold your attention to the very end!! I loved how Zoe found a way to get her shy twin to open up in the most unexpected way. It turns out to be a very sweet read. And if you are not into reading hot and heavy erotica then this should be just the right amount for you. Since at the beginning it leads you to thinking it will be the typical BDSM read but this was a lot softer then I expected yet I still enjoyed what I read!

My only wish was it was longer and there was more to read about of Chloe and Mark! They made such a cute couple! =0)

I recommend this to anyone wanting to read a unique take on a contemporary romance!

Book Teaser(s) :
Zoe was balancing a brush, a hot roller, and a kit of exotic and expensive-looking makeup all at once.
Chloe winced as the brush snagged in her hair. “Ouch! Watch it. So this means you’ll come in and substitute for me the next time I want a day off from teaching first grade, right?” She was joking, of course. Her twin and a roomful of kids would be a disastrous combination, she was certain. But Zoe was unperturbed.
“Sure, I’ll sub for you. Don’t forget, I’m good at making people mind.” She winked at her sister in the mirror and Chloe felt her mouth go suddenly dry. Could she really do this? Did she want to? The decision was rapidly being taken out of her hands as Zoe painted and perfumed her and hot-rolled her hair into a luscious tumble of honey-blonde waves that Chloe was certain she never could have achieved herself.
“You look perfect,” Zoe said at last. “You haven’t looked this good since you let me do your makeup and hair for our senior prom.”
“You mean the one where Michael Carlson puked down the front of my gown?” Chloe stared at the exotically beautiful stranger in the mirror.
“Yes, that one.” Zoe grinned at her. “Truly a magical night. Now, just one more thing and you’re ready to go.”
“What’s that?” Chloe looked at her apprehensively. What other accessory could this outfit possibly need? A riding crop? A bullwhip? ~ within Chapter 1

"Kissing Phoenix" [Sex with Strings Series, Book 1] by Shona Husk

My Book Summary : Lilith & Aidan have been dating for the past six months and Aidan is ready to propose. However, before he can propose he needs to reveal to her that he is a Vampire ...

Yet, even before he can get his news out Lilith, reveals a secret of her own ... she recently was told that her cancer has come back and she only has about three months left to live.

Now it's a race against time, with Aidan willing to do whatever is possible so Lilith will survive. Even if that means going against the rules of his own "people."

Nevertheless, what are they both willing to give up in order to be together or at the very least to have Lilith survive?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. A cutely erotic short story. I enjoyed getting to know Aidan & Lilith they were a unique duo. It was also intriguing to read about this version of Vampires & Weres that Ms. Husk came up with, very creative!

The only thing I didn't like about this novella was how rushed it felt going from what seems to be the beginning of wrapping everything up at the end of Chapter 4 to Chapter 5 being a couple of months later (like an epilogue), it all just didn't flow well at the end. =0/

Anyways ... when I purchased this novella it was FREE so, if you can get this as a FREE read too then I do recommend this to anyone who like paranormal romance with a bit of erotica thrown in. However, if it isn't FREE then I would only recommend it if you are a big fan of Ms. Husk.

He fixed his gaze back on the road and traffic of the M25. Theo had been happy to squeeze in the appointment. Pity he hadn’t told him the whole truth. His heart contracted hard, making breathing impossible. There was still a bloody massive chance Theo would do nothing and that Aidan would have to take her home and watch her die.
He wasn’t strong enough to do that again. He’d been lost for a decade after Eve had died. This time would be worse. Lil was part of him, now that he’d tasted her blood, as well as part of his life and heart. He’d lain awake half the night wondering if Owen was right—loving a Vampire was easier as everyone got bored before anyone died. He sighed. Immortality was a bitch. ~ within Chapter 3

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 241 KB | Release Date: August 2009 | Publisher: Ellora’s Cave Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Bonded By Need" [Shifting Bonds Series, Book 1] by Nina Pierce

My Book Summary : Jayda is a polymorphic shifter female meaning she can shift into both a wolf and a cougar. Yet she has only recently accepted who she truly is with the help of Cole, her mate and the leader of the wolf council, who initiated her first shift into her wolf form. Because of how her cougar-self feels a bit dormant, they thought it would take a couple of years for it to emerge. That is until recently not long before Jayda meets Zane, the leader of the cougar council, who stirs the cougar inside of her wanting to come out. Now the three are faced with a decision they never expected to face ... will Jayda have to choose between them or can they find a way to appease them all? Especially before another incident comes a long to rip them all apart...

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Discover the transformation Jayda goes through once she becomes her true self while trying to listen to her heart.

I had high hopes for this novella, probably to high of hopes, but it wasn't as good as I hoped. Basically, I wished it was more like "Trinity" or something along the lines of "Silver Mine"--which in some ways they were both similar to it--but in most ways it wasn't. Mostly I was disappointed with how argumentative the guys were and how long it took them to reluctantly agree with the set up that Jayda wanted.

Therefore, I only recommend this novel to those who are fans of Ms. Pierce.

Book Teaser(s) :
“Let’s just get out of here. You can take me back to the clinic and you and your cougars can come back and find the kits.”
The kits. He’d forgotten all about them. Zane went down on one knee and purred low in invitation. They popped out of the small crevice one at a time.
Jayda cooed. “Oh, you found them!”
“No, Jayda, you found them.” He picked one up by the scruff of the neck and smiled. “Not that I’d recommend this method again, but we have them.” Zane looked up the wall. “Now we just have to figure out how to get everyone back up to the truck.”
“Well, how did you get down here?” Jayda looked up, shading her eyes against the noonday sun. “I’m not sure I can climb.”
“I came down in cougar form. But I came in from that direction.” He turned and looked at the slope, trying to work out a solution. “I could carry you on my back.”
She didn’t respond. He turned to see her appraising him and his cock immediately stirred under her probing gaze. Embarrassed, he bent and let the kit join his sibling. “Stupid idea. Why don’t we both shift and we can each carry a kit in our mouths.” He shot her a look over his shoulder. “Do you feel well enough to shift?”
Her face flushed. “Yeah, but...” ~ within Chapter 3
