This book was mainly the reason why I found the Alluring Tales series of short stories. And let me state that they do not have the read in order, I'm just being anal about it. They're all by different authors and they are not in any way shape or form related.
Now that being said, Waves of Seduction is an X-Rated version of The Little Mermaid, which just happens to be my favorite Disney movie! I love Ariel.
So Ella is a mermaid and some 15 years ago she saved a teenagers life. From that day she's always remembered that boy and now that she's thirty and her father wants to marry her off, she wants to go in search for that human boy, now a man, before she has to turn her life over to duty.
Liam has been obsessed with his mermaid his whole adult life. And every night he goes out for a swim to try to find her. And now she is there, with legs nonetheless.
Ella and Liam are so hot together! Liam wants to keep her, she just wants one night to have as a memory of her love before going back to her father.
If I can complain about one thing is that it's short. I loved the world this is set in but I think we can hope that there will be another book after this one! ...more

Whips and chains and ..... cock leashes? Let Jo Carlisle take you on a sensual ride that is not for the easily offended. This book had me gasping and in shock while sometimes having to read things twice because.... no they didn't!
First of all the timeline of this book is a bit in the middle of Temptation at Twilight when Luc disappears. Vampire + valkyrie usually works for me, especially because I love valkyrie personalities. Fun, hard asses used to getting their way. Kassandra is a valkyrie warrior and is assigned with guiding Luc's soul to the afterlife. Except she gets there right before he dies and realizes that he's her mate. Against all rules, she saves Luc and brings him to her palace in Valhalla.
Luc is a very alpha vampire, and very sexual. He's immediately attracted to Kassandra and even though she treats him a bit as a slave at first, he actually finds that he likes it. Of course, he is more of a pampered slave being given his choice of a harem to feed on. I knew I was going to like Luc from the first moment I read about him in the first book, and I did like him. I even enjoyed the fact that he is an alpha male in every sense of the way but he is perfectly ok with his desires to submit to Kassandra in the bedroom.
Kassandra, even though I really liked her, must have issues. Some of the things she has obviously done with others in the past sound a bit extreme and even her ideas of a good time for Luc, well... lets just say she's lucky that he got off on all that because it could've been scary for most other people.
The relationship between Kassandra and Luc developed fast physically because they are both very sexual but their love and connection built up slowly throughout the book until you could believe they didn't want to be apart.
Nevertheless, amongst the non-stop debauchery, this book does manage to tell a good story. What a difference that was from book one! The love between Kassandra and Luc is always there, you can see it in both of them even when they are playing with others. Oh yeah, that hasn't changed. The one thing you can expect from this series is sex. A lot of it. With a lot of people, different people, threesome and moresomes, and they are not shy about the man love. Even with the demon Legion, who I thought at first I should be scared of but grew to love by the end of the book. I hope we get to read his book with his one true love.

This was the story of Marigold and Mictain. This was a pretty entertaining but short story. Definetely good to lighten up your mood and as a quick pick me up. ;) Mictain is an Aztec God who is now serving Lucifer as a collector of souls and he's been assigned to get Marigold as she will die by drinking a potion she makes from an internet recipe.
Some thing had me laughing out loud, for example: the Death Order file with the name of soon-to-be-deceased, and signed by Satan, the Lord of High Sin! Then the hellphone, powered by the souls of CEO's of phone companies.
But when he shows to up wait for her to die, she can actually SEE him. That shouldn't be possible, how can a mortal see him? She must be more than human. So Lucifer assigns him to get close to her to find out what she is.
Of course it helps that she was attracted to him the first time she saw him and had asked him to come back to have dinner with him. But he blows the first date!
He soon realizes that he cares for her more than he has for anyone else in a very long time, and just wants her by his side. He just has to get daddy dearest's approval. But he doesn't know how her father is, and Lucifer won't tell him.
Marigold's personality got a bit on my nerves, but in general this was a fun read. ...more

It's been a while since I read the previous Goddess Summoning book, and I've had a love/blah relationship with this series. It was first referred to me by a friend who loved Goddess of Love so I picked that up and read it without knowing it was part of a series. After that I went back and read the others and sometimes I like them, sometimes I'm not that impressed.
But I'll tell you what I can always expect when I read one of them. Quirky humor, funny women that are not necessarily the perfect model from other romance novels, they like to drink wine, have big mouths, curves, attitudes, great sidekicks and nosy goddesses. And they all have a mythology theme around them.
Goddess of Legend's theme is King Arthur and Camelot. Have I mentioned before that I have somewhat of a fascination with that? No? Well... I love it!
So the Water Goddess, also married to Merlin, has to bring a modern human woman, Isabel, back in time to solve a big problem. See, Queen Guinevere is cheating on her husband, King Arthur, with the handsome Knight Lancelot. This is the reason why King Arthur is unhappy. If King Arthur is unhappy, Merlin will die. And since the resourceful Goddess doesn't want her lover to die she recruits Isabel's help.
Isabel is to show up at Camelot and make Lancelot fall in love with her so that King Arthur can have the love of his wife back. But things don't always work out the way they are supposed to, do they?
Isabel is attracted like a moth to the light to King Arthur. Lancelot? The kid does nothing for her. AT ALL.
So this very strange woman who shows up at Camelot with her strange words and ideas will turn the town and the people upside down, as well as King Arthur's heart.
They do make a really cute couple, and the book was pretty funny. It is probably my favorite in the series. ...more

This book was, as the others in this series, a fun, light read. I forgot how much fun the goddesses are! Venus is hillarious.
This is a story about friendship, loyalties, goddesses that get in everybody's business, and P.C. Cast own tale of the Trojan War.
Kat, a mortal woman from the modern world, and her best friend, Jacky, are brought by Venus, Athena and Hera to put an end to the Trojan War. Kat's mission is to keep Achilles from fighting so that the greeks can hurry up and lose.
Kat and Jacky, who are close to their 40s, are given 18 year old bodies to complete this task, and are promised to be given the body of their choice after they accomplish the mission. Jacky is a sooo funny, their friendship is very real, and they both find love in another time.
This is not a book to look at if you want accurate storytelling of events or mythology. I think the author did a wonderful job using most elements and putting her twist on the story.
Kat and Achilles make a very cute couple, their relationship never felt forced, and I felt it developed and flowed nicely.
The only thing I wished for that didn't happen, was at the end I thought they would all go back to the modern world and live their lives there as opposed to staying in old times....more
