BLURB:

EXCERPT:


She stood, a few feet from the door, wondering why she’d let Marius talk her into this event. He’d been far more insistent than usual...more

Since I've been spending more time at Ethan Day's, Carol Lynne's and Amanda Young's Yahoo groups, of which I'm a member, I've been finding all these lovely new authors. Not so good for the chequing account but absolutely lovely for my reading pleasure.

Lex Valentine is a member of a number of the same groups which is how I found her and after reading an excerpt from one of her stories I was sold. And so began my journey into her Tales of the Darkworld.
I'm totally loving the world that L...more

Oddly fascinating. Or maybe just plain weird. I picked this while I was in a mood for girly stuff (hence the attraction to a pink scheme cover) and the combination of a vampire and dragon was simply irresistible.

This is just a short erotic book about these two supernatural creatures hooking up and having anal sex (BOTH of them having anal sex). That was definitely a detractor, I must say, not that I am discriminating - its just not my kink.

It was nice to have some meddlesome supernatural family...more

2.5 stars. this short was cute but it had some flaws. first for all the tall of how strong and powerful the heroine was were given no evidence of that other than her position (and do cemetaries really have cfo's?). she wasn't necessarily weak but not all that everyone was building her up to be either. the hero is a hot *literally* dragon who's sweet but a little like a love sick puppy. the sex scenes were good for the most part but there was anal sex on the part of both characters and while I do...more

this was ok. the writing style was good, the flow was good etc, just something about the couple was just so so imo. the story doesn't give the reader much world building about the darkworld itself. yes, it's a short story, but there is plenty of erotic scenes in the book... maybe take away one of those and give the reader more about the world, especially since it's a series.

it was pretty erotic. the scenes were hot but some phrases were repetitive..and since it was a semi-short story, not sure...more

There's not much world building, it just jumps right into the story. I found it interesting and liked the mix of shifters and vampires.

This story was short and sweet. Not a bad read but something was missing in it for me.
