Enjoying the ongoing storyline and I do think that the individual stories are good and very well written but they are just way too short which doesn't allow the relationship to develop - it is literally a case of them meeting and within less than a handful of days the couples are mated and devoted to each other.......but if you are looking for a quickie that is well written with a great back story throughout the series then this is for you!

OK - I am a little confused. I appreciate that the story is moving along. But have the authors given up on the romance? I really liked Sebastian's story. It was interesting and had some sizzle. A solid 4 stars. But then it ended. I was like WTF? And it is not like it continues into the next story. Sure, Reny made a brief appearance right at the end to drop a bomb, but otherwise - no Sebastian and Reny.

Aristide's story was a joke. I am being generous with 2 stars. Aristide and Katherine were bare

This is the fourth in a two-novella series and I have read them all in less than a week. If you need a quick Shifter, Alpha, Paranormal fix, these books are perfect!

In this book you have the two stories Sebastian and Aristide. This book continues the overriding story line that was left hanging (they are always left hanging...) at the end of Xavier's story. Here, we have the evil goddess/sorceress/voodoo priestess Shakpi finally in human form and out to start a war for the Pantera. Her first voll

#7 Sebastian by Alexandra Ivy

Attacks outside of the Wildlands are being blamed on Pantera and Sebastian is tapped to work with FBI agent Reny. Reny woke in a hospital 6 years ago with no memory of her previous life. Sebastian immediately recognizes her as his mate. And almost as quickly they are off and running trying to find out who is helping the evil goddess in her plan to start an interspecies war between the Pantera and humans.

This story is super quick and though the other stories were quic

Sebastian/Aristide are books seven and eight in the Bayou Heat series. I like this series. It is well written, the characters are well developed, I like the world that has been created for these puma shifters, it's sexy and filled with very alpha males.

The Pantera live in the Bayous of Louisiana. In a place that holds their magic called the Wildlands. But for the last fifty years their lands and their magics have been dying. Their females have been unable to conceive or carry a child. Until a m

I feel, for me, that this pair was the weakest of the set. also seemed the shortest, took an hour and a half to read both.
still, a good tale, with the hunt for Shapki taking centre stage, and finally the birth of the cub long awaited since book one :-)

I will buy any more that come out, as there is still a lot unfinished.

Two different females, one without a past and one with a dangerous secret capture the attention of two Pantera males in these exciting paranormal romances. Both stories are fast paced and smooth flowing, full of suspense, action and romance and strong, captivating characters that grab the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go. The well written scenes and details paint vivid images that bring the stories to life and ensure that the readers want more including me as I was completely enthralled wit ...more

The first book started great, the story progress and chemistry between the characters was good, but I felt the intimacy was hurried; the mating heat made her act very unlike herself, and it felt a little fake.

Aristide's is not my favorite so far. The plot was kind of dull and the love scenes and final was hurried as well and unrealistic. I mean, the girl just met the guy, and already she is head over heels for him? C'mon!

I agree with my fellow reviewers: the stories would improve if you two mak
Sebastian and Reny
Reny is an FBI agent delegated to work with Sebastian to help solve some puma attacks. As soon as they meet, it is apparent to Sebastian that Reny is more than he expected and more than even she knows. But then she knows little about herself because of the amnesia she suffers from. I liked her character but I do get tired of the way female officers/agents never seem to have a sense of humour. Sebastian was just kinda ho-hum.

Sebastian by Alexandra Ivy

Sebastian has been charged with finding who is responsible for recent attacks made to look like Pantera killings before the truth of their existence is revealed to the world. He’ll be partnered with Reny Smith, a FBI agent with a mysterious past, a scent that drives him wild, and a secret that will change her life.

Sebastian is as much of a warrior as he is a Suit and as soon as he lays his eyes on Reny, his alpha-ness kicks into high gear and he claims her befo

"Bayou Heat: Sebastian - Aristide" by Alexandra Ivy and Laura Wright. Books 7 & 8 in this paranormal novella series.

WOW! Loved these two stories! Very fast paced, holding no punches.

The story starts with SEBASTIAN.

Raphael's mate Ashe is about to have her cub, someone is trying to kill her, and now the Pantera have been exposed to the human world. Sebastian as been assigned to work with a human FBI agent as a liaison to the Pantera. But when he meets Reny, she is anything but human. So why is

These boys may be hunters but when it comes to their women they are protectors, and are seriously possessive but at times they can be big kids, "we." His cat purred. "I like the sound of that." Sebastian I loved him and his cat, "a low growl rumbled in his throat. He wanted to bite that soft flesh. Preferably while he was climaxing, deep inside her, filling her with his seed." Astride he's seriously protective of his woman and clan, "Ashe's cub is well and safe," he said gazing down at her, his ...more

Finally got done reading this. Argh all these cliffhangers. I think that's why I'm always frothing at the mouth for these books. I liked Sebastian's story better than Aristide, only because Ari's story was hella short and we didn't get a fight scene with Marco and the rescuing of Noah. It was more romantic and Bastian was just.....MMMMMMM. And yay we finally got the truth about Reny. Where does this leave poor jaded Hiss? Also after 8 stories, we finally got the birth of Raf's sweet little baby ...more

Sebastian and Reny are great together, I like how different possibilities are being explored in the way Pantera are out in the world without knowing what they are and then showing their connections back to the Wildlands.
Aristide and Katherine was a nice story too, less focussed on the sex it gave more time to develop the storyline and allow the overall arc to progress just that bit more. Still very goods reads four books in.

1) Sebastian is supposed a professional diplomat, but he’s a jerk to Reny who’s not what she thinks she is. And it doesn't make sense for Reny to be able to go from total amnesia to a competent FBI agent in just 7 years even with the police being her guardians. What about background checks, etc.?

2) Now Aristide is a sweetheart. From the beginning he protects and believes in Kat. Especially once he gets over wanting only a Pantaran female. And Kat is a ferrous dedicated mother. She fits in perf

These two stories in the Pantera series seemed more unfinished in their brevity than previous ones. They were an easy read, too easy, meaning simplistic. Each story left me wanting to know more about the main two characters, and what was happening to previous characters. I found it frustrating and bewildering that such critical plot points as the birth of Ashe's baby and the attack of the assassins happened completely offstage with almost no detail. I felt cheated. Not sure these short novellas ...more

I really enjoyed Sebastian and Aristide's books. They seemed a bit shorter than the first 6 installments, but still good.

Sebastian and Reny, you know that they will be attracted to each other as that is how these books work, but it was fun to find out how compatible they were. Reny was a strong female and didn't back down while Sebastian was man enough to realize that he shouldn't over power her in every way and let her actually show she could handle herself.

Aristide and Kate, loved these two!

Another great read!

I absolutely LOVE the Bayou Heat series. My only wish is that each story were longer because I can't get enough of them! The characters are so well written I feel personally invested in them.

This was good for two novellas but still I wish they were longer more filled out in places. I do like the characters and the stories are good....I just wish there was more to them. The plot and the over arcing story is well done.

Two yummy stories. A great close to the series. Personally Sebastian was all that and a bag of chips for me. I liked Ari and he really connected with Katherine. For me he didn't radiate that suave animal magnetism. Still a very good read. I have really enjoyed this series.

I really do like the Pantera world- the men are wickedly hot and the women aren't pushovers.

The authors manage to write their novellas with a very seamless touch. Yes, you can tell that they're two different authors- mainly because you start seeing the authors different writing styles emerge. However, they've managed to write so that the world they created is cohesive.

My biggest complaint- and I've said it before- I could totally do full-length novels for these characters! Yes, I like the world

The chemistry of Sebastian and Reny was off the charts from their first meeting. Reny is so brave and strong. She keeps going and tries to ignore the missing past. Sebastian is very focused on his goals until he meets Reny and she knocks him off balance. Aristide as a Nurturer is very caring. He knows there is more to Katherine then she is letting on. I love the addition of Noah and hope to see more of him in the future. Once again I was attached to this book from the beginning to the end and co ...more

2.5 Stars. Are these books getting even shorter? 2 very short stories, I am glad the second came back around and confirmed that hiss was the brother - I knew that was coming. Though it felt cheap how they made Hiss out to be a traitor after living, working, and befriending them all this time, and he was willing to destroy his whole species for his bitter past. A past hid so well noone even knew about it?!? In this small community?? Please.
Another grand slam. One of my all time favorite series.
