1. The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day. At first I thought, "Ugh, a black swan curse story. Boring!" Well this was much better than I thought. I wish I would have learned a little more about what happened before the ep ...more
Goodreads does not offer a way to rate each story in an anthology, except by rating within the review. Enthralled earned 5 stars from me for Salvage, an Iron Seas love story/pirate adventure/steampunk tale. Georgie and Thom are my favorite characters since the Iron Duke and Mina. Georgie is a great female character, and the fake sex scene had me laughing hyst ...more
The Devil's Due...It seems quite a while since I've read a Breed's story after reading all of them in a space of a couple of years. Despite a million reasons not to continue I must admit I do love my "guilty Pleasure" read and it was good to be in the Breeds' world again. As a novella, nothing of super significance happened to move the plot along except a bit of a teaser concerning Rule Breaker w ...more

In my compilation I think the Lora Leigh book is missing which is alright with me as I haven't liked her Breed books. It is a library digital audio book and I don't think any of the audio versions has the Lora Leigh story as it is sold separately for $17. I'm glad to skip it. I started it for the Iron Seas novella (really like the Iron Seas) and the League of the Black Swan (Wanted to try Alyssa Day's new se ...more
I’ll be honest, when I saw Alyssa Day and Meljean Brook had stories in here, I begged, pleaded, and promised unsavory things to get Enthralled. I’m glad I did. Not only did I get the promised goodness I knew would come from Day and Brook, but I was also able to sample some of Lora Leigh and Lucy Monroe. I have heard of both authors but had not yet ventured into reading their series. I will be sure to rectify that as soon as possible.
The Devil's Due by Lora Leigh - 4 stars.
I have not yet read the Breeds series by Lora Leigh and I now know that I will definitely be adding the many books to my bloated to read list. This was one hot little story and I loved the two main characters Kate and Dev.
The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day - 4 stars
I enjoyed this story about a young woman cursed to become a swan and sing t ...more
Actually, it wasn't that bad. I didn't like two of the stories, but "didn't like" is quite different from dislike, so I can say it was a good enough read.
Honestly, I bought it for the Breeds novella. I love Meljean Brook. But while I love to read them, missing one of her stories doesn't mean you ...more
I love Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series, and for that reason alone I was excited to read this anthology. And I’m glad that I did, because I really liked three of the stories, and found two additional new authors that I’m excited to read more of.
The Devil’s Due by Lora Leigh is a story set in the Breeds universe. I have to be honest, I didn’t even like this story well enough to pay that much attention as I was reading. I didn’ ...more
A recessive Wolf Breed is revealed and she has to hide from almost everyone. Those against the Breeds want her dissected and checked since she passed all the tests which were supposed to show she is a Breed. None of those tests were successful until the fever hit and she found out she is, after all, not human. Those who are not against the Breeds see the benefits of having her. This is a standard Breed story minus the arguing common to other Breed stories.
I was mo ...more
Lora Leigh can write good sex. Beyond a doubt the woman came make the pages sizzle with her erotic descriptions. But after 28 books, this series has gotten very stale, and I'm ready for the story to end. Nothing new here.
League of the Black Swan 1.5 - The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day - 3 1/2 stars
This novella introduces us to Day's world of the Black Swan, a series that I'm not familiar with but found intriguing. Day's PNR world of Bor ...more
The Plot is amazing yet it had to ruined by the crappy dialogue.
not to mention the story moved way too fast, there was nothing substantial there.
the heroine looked weak and pathetic, come on when is Lora Leigh going to make a feisty heroine.
And as usual the guy was totally domineering and controlling and Katie the main girl just gave in quick. the plot line was the same as all the other books but this had no substance, katie the heroine was just a fickle character. this was not ...more
Wow. I don't think you could really pick more different stories to cram into a collection together. If this had been just the Black Swan story and the Iron Seas story this would be five stars, around a 9/10, just great. It makes sense, I guess, because that's why I got the collection, or why my partner got it for me, because I liked those two series and was hungry for more. But the two shifter stories...wel ...more

NOT Enthralled about the Devil Getting His Due
PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW REFERS **SOLELY** TO “DEVIL’S DUE”.
I bought “Enthralled”, the anthology containing stories by Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Maljean Brook and Lucy Monroe in the print edition, basically because I couldn’t wait to have it in my hot little hands on release day for the Breed story, Devil’s Due. Was “Devil’s Due” worth almost $10? N.O. Okay, okay, so it’s 25% of the book, so was it worth $2.50? Big ole N.O. Was I pissed as all get-out ...more
The Devil’s Due by Lora Leigh - 2 stars
It's been a while since I've read any Breeds books, their quality varies too much, you never know what you're going to get. This one wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either - very little in the way of plot, just sex. Which is fine when you know and care about the characters, which I didn't, so...
The Curse Of The Black Swan (League Of The Black Swan #1.5) by Alyssa Day - 4.5 starsI'd never read anything by Alyssa Day, and if all her books are like this sho ...more
1. The Devil's Due by Lora Leigh. For a Breed book, the "romance" was watered down, which I actually enjoyed. The series got to the point where it was a sexual hunger that almost hurt and the sex didn't seem to feel any better, especially for the women. This one was a nice story about a Breed that thought he'd never find love and the woman that was rejected when her DNA was found out. Good story. 3-1/2 stars.

The Lora Leigh story was good but had too many people appearing with their stories taking away from the main couple. Plus the beginning when Jorn "dies"? I was so confused about what happened? Is he really dead? Leigh is probably going to come back to that later but thro ...more
First is the Wolf and Eagle. The animalistic approach was broached rather good. It was awesome and I think I would like to read a series of this.
Two.five is Robots. I love hope the fell in love all over again though cliffhanger ending. It's the same with the firedemon dude and the cursed swa ...more
