This is book three in the Beau Monde series but I didn't know this until just now so this can definitely be read as a stand a lone. I really liked this book it has twist and turns in the plot, it has suspense, action and a really cute love story.
Lisette is running away with her little brother and her cousin because she found out her brotheled wants to put her little brother in a asylm and collect his fortune. She has no family besides these two and a cousin in London so they all set off for London. They book passage on a ship captained by Daniel. Daniel is against having women on his ship for long voyages and first declines Lisette's offer. But then he lets his desires come forth and ultimately accepts her offer. Lisette is traveling under the guise that she's a widow and this puts her in a very uncomfortable place because now Daniel thinks he can have his way with her or at least try but little does he know Lisette is a true innocent. It makes for a very interesting ride from New Orleans to London. As all of Lisette's lies come to surface I was surprised at how accepting Daniel was I expected a much more angry response.
This is a very original historical romance story and I liked that. Like I said it had a lot of twist and turns, action and suspense which made it a very entertaining read and I would recommend it to all Historical Romance fans. I think you'll really enjoy it.(less)

This is my first book my Terry Spear and I loved it. She does a great job writing a exciting story with a sweet love story in the mix. Kathleen is in the military on a mission when she's kidnapped by the drug lords lucky for her she's saved by a man named Connor with a pet jaguar. Little does she know Connor is the jaguar and he's looking for a shifting mate. After their rescue mission they are seperated but neither can stop thinking about the other until Kathleen goes back to the Amazon looking for this man and his pet jaguar. Well, she finds him but ends up getting herself into all kinds of trouble with the drug lords again and in the meantime Connor's sister, also a shifter, turns Kathleen knowing Connor would never do it. But now they have to deal with the drug lords and Kathleen's uncontrollable shifts between human and jaguar.
Connor and Kathleen's relationship just comes off as so natural and comfortable there is no big struggle in that degree. You can't help but fall in love with the three main characters in this book. Connor's sister plays a big role in the story. I'm thinking her story is going to be next and I wouldn't miss it. Will she find a shifter to mate with or will she have to turn someone else? I can't wait to find out.
I highly recommend this book to all paranormal romance fans unless you are squeamish when it comes to violence because this book is full of it. But other than that this is a fantastic read.(less)

I'm a big fan of highlander romance so this book definitely satisfied my craving for a good escape into the highlander world. This is the 5th book in the series but I didn't know this until I finished the book and it read great as a stand alone I didn't feel lost at all.
Daphne has lost her brother and no one knows for sure he's even still alive so her lands get raided and everything is taken and she's practically starving but she has stood up to be the one to run the show while he's gone. Before all this happens though she is brothel ed to marry a man that is in love with someone else so she sleeps with Norris, a laird and heir to a earldom. But this all happens before the book starts its just back story which kind of upset me because I like to experience the before and during the first time the hero and heroine are together or meet. But this is my only complaint besides the first half of the book being a little slow. Anyways, Norris can't stop thinking about Daphne and decides he's going to check on her after he hears the news of them being raided. He sleeps with her again a few times and then decides she has to come home with him to make sure she's not with child because he secretly wants her for his own but she has no dowry so he can't marry her or his father wouldn't agree.
The romantic development between Daphne and Norris is stressful because of their situations and because she's being treated very badly by her and his people yet he is very arrogant and doesn't even try to hide the fact that they are lovers.
I would recommend this book to historical and highlander romance fans. It's really a great read and the second half kept me up late trying to finish and it did finish with a great outcome. So definitely read this book if you love men in kilts.(less)

I was excited by the cover and the blurb but when I read the book I was slightly disappointed. I was expecting longer stories with a little substance. What you get with this book is a bunch of very short stories of sex scenes. I have to say some of them were very good and made me wish that the story would not end so suddenly. But some of the stories just weren't doing it for me they were just sex and at times not very good sex at that.
Having said that I think this book is well suited for someone looking for short bedtime reads of the erotic kind. Most are paranormal or historical based genres. So these are the people I would recommend this book too. If your looking for character development, relationship development or sexual tension this is not the book for you. But I will say it was a hot read. (less)

This is my first book by Natasha Blackthorne that I have read and I was delighted and asking myself what took me so long. Lady and Lord Lockhardt have been married for three months with very little sex life to speak of. Lady Lockhardt has taken advice from her friends on how to dress to entice her husband into bed but he doesn't seem to notice but he does notice that she refuses to waltz with him at any of the balls. Lord Lockhardt has a bad personal experience that makes him believe that a wife should not be treated like a plaything and should only be quickly bedded in order to produce an heir. She has spoken with her friends of their relationships in the bedroom with their husbands and wonders why he doesn't want her but little does she know that he is taking all the self control he can muster not to ravish her nightly. After drinking a little too much he decides he is going to insist that his wife waltz with him at her birthday party to show everyone that she belongs to him and this begins their new awakenings to each other.
This story made me smile its such a sweet and sexy read. It's nicely written for such a short story that focuses on one marital problem. I just fell in love with the characters and it was beautifully done. I would recommend this book to historical romance fans it's a delight to read and only took me about an hour to finish so everyone should be able to find time to squeeze in this short, sexy read.

This was a awesome, funny, sexy and did I say funny read? Ysabel is a witch that was burned at the stake 500 years ago as her lover looked on without a ounce of regret on his face. Well, right before she dies she makes a contract to work for the devil for 500 years in order to get all the people involved in her hanging the worst kind of punishment in hell's prison. Just when her contract is almost up 5 souls escape and its her duty to hunt them down and send them back or she suffers her death everyday until she does. Needless to say this whole mess had put her in a fowl mood and she detest men and hasn't been with one since her slimy ex lover from 500 years ago. Remy is a tracker Demon assigned to help Ysabel with her mission and he is the ultimate sweet talking womanizer. Just what this witch hates the most.
The bantering between them is hysterical and never stops until they finally they give in and make the story super hot. This was also the ultimate revenge novel and I loved how she's able to get back at the people who burned her at the stake. I really felt for Ysabel in this story she's had a tough life and nobodies treated her right no wonder she has such a bad and scary attitude. Everyone in hell fears her wrath.
I highly recommend this book for someone looking for a good laugh, loves a tough and dangerous heroine and likes some hot sex to throw in the mix. Eve's specialty is writing novellas that can make you relate just like a full length novel and this one doesn't disappoint so get reading.(less)

When Sharon first emailed me requesting that I review her book I didn't know what I was in for. I had never heard of her and didn't know anyone who has read any of her books. Boy am I happy I gave her a shot because I was extremely surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It even made me cry and that never happens. lol
Anne catches her just married husband in bed with the maid of honor on her wedding day so she decides to go on her honeymoon alone to work through some of her obvious problems. Little did she know her problems are about to get a lot worse. She is attacked by a female vampire and almost died but she's saved by Marcus, our hero. Marcus is a golden vampire meaning he can walk in sunlight. He instantly recognizes Anne as his fated mate and almost looses her when he had just found her. Since he changed her to save her life without the permission of the council he is not allowed to make contact with her at all for 31 days so she has to adjust to her change all alone. And this is one of the things I loved about Anne's character she isn't scared or whiny through the change she actually embraces her new powers and finds enjoyment out of being a vampire. Because Marcus and Anne are fated they have a very intense attraction to one another making this a super spicy read. I got so emotionally involved with these characters that I actually cried in several places in the book and I never cry when reading a book. So I would say her character development was right on. Not only did I fall in love with the two main characters but I either loved or hated all the characters with a passion.
Overall this was a great story with lots of twists and turns that kept you in suspense throughout the story. When you think things can't get any worse for Marcus and Anne it does over and over again until you doubt there's going to be a happy ever after ending but everything is nicely tied up into a little bow in the end.
I highly recommend this book to paranormal romance fans. This is a must read at a great price on Amazon for your Kindle. There is some graphic violence in this book so if blood and guts make you uncomfortable I would avoid reading this book. I look forward to reading more books by Sharon Hamilton soon.(less)

This book was fantastic. I could have sat down and read the whole thing in one sitting. Jeaniene keeps to her writing style in this book and her world of vampire caos.
Leila is a troubled soul that had a horrific accident when she was only a child and now she has unbelievable powers. When the vampire world finds out about her powers she becomes a prize to be had. First she's kidnapped and then is rescued by our super sexy hero, Vlad. Vlad is the one and only vampire prince himself and all the scary stories are true. But Leila doesn't know whether to be scared of him or to love him. As they try to seek out the enemy bonds are made and hopes are shattered. Vlad has a heart of stone.
Vlad and Leila are determined not to sleep together but their attraction to one another can't be stopped no matter the warnings they may receive. Their very slow to come together and I liked that there was plenty of tension in this book. I loved everything about this book except the very end. We don't get a happy ever after ending and talk about cliffhanger. It will leave you gasping and sitting on the edge of your seat.
I highly recommend this book to all paranormal romance fans and I think Urban Fantasy fans will love this one too. It's a beautifully written story. I can't wait till the next book in the series. (less)

I normally don't venture far from reading romance but when I got the invite to review this one saw the cover and read the blurb I thought I would give it a try. I didn't expect the amazing adventure I was going to be taken on. This book is from the point of view of seven characters one even being a dog. The story tells you how these seven characters lives have been ruined for what? lace? I know it sounds strange but its based on history and some of the horrific things done in the name of lace will astound you. The story is definitely very dark and gloomy but so entertaining. The author does an outstanding job of taking seven very different people and weaving their lives together just like lace. I would highly recommend this book to everyone to read. I think anyone would be able to see the beauty behind the authors writing and find pleasure in reading the tales of seven ruined lives and their struggle for worth. Being a lover of history could help obviously but this is a must read. (less)

There wasn't as much paranormal elements as I expected and what was there was kind of silly. Sophia is a fairy on a mission to help a little girl little does she know that the little girl has a handsome, lonely father that needs help too. The Duke of Robinsworth is accussed of murdering his wife and is a outcast in society. Everyone is terrified of him especially women until he meets Sophia who seems not to care a bit about all the rumors and is totally at ease with him maybe even a little to comfortable with him. They are automatically attracted to each other but Sophia won't have anything to do with him because if she does her wings will change colors and everyone will know that she is no longer pure.
This story had some funny parts I even laughed a few times and it was cute but it was a little slow in the beginning and didn't pick up until the end. Everything works out nicely at the end. I would have to say this is more of a historical romance than a paranormal so if you like historical romance novels and light paranormal elements this book may be good for you. (less)

The author does a great job with her picturesque descriptions making it feel as if you are living in the Highlands with these characters. Rosalia comes from a abusive home but after she refuses to marry the man chosen for her she gets the beating of a lifetime and runs away to the Highlands to search out family in the north. She doesn't make it far before passing out from the pain of her injuries. Ciaran and his men find Rosalia unconscious, bruised and bloody. Luckily Ciaran is a true gentlemen with a kind heart and decides to help her any way he can including taking her back to his land to stay until Spring. Meantime a friendship between them blooms into love that neither one will admit to. On this journey to love there are some action packed scenes thrown in when it comes to their clans rivals.
I found this book to be a beautiful story with just enough action to keep you on your toes. This is definitely a entertaining read with even some humor thrown in. I would highly recommend this one to historical romance fans especially to fans of men in kilts. (less)

This is just another wonderful installment in Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre Series. You have to pick up this series if your into paranormal reads and erotica.
This book is the story of Varya a succubus that lets her curiosity get her in trouble and Andreu a very strict business man who doesn't want anything to do with women and possibly end up like his brother and his mate. He's all about learning the business behind the theatre. But fate has something very different in store for Varya and Andreu than granting them their freedoms. These two come together like a bad storm strong, rough and dangerous. And boy are they hot and intense together there is no denying these two are made for each other from the very beginning.
This story was extremely sexy and out of control with the heat so be prepared to lose a few pieces of clothing while reading this one. I thought originally that it would be too soon to do Andreu's story because we just met him in the last book but I grew to love him and should know better than to question Felicity's judgement. As for Varya I can only dream of being as sexy as this succubus.
There was a scene in the theatre that had some menage and M/M action but very little but I wanted to warn you about that. Other than that Felicity is one of my favorite authors and she didn't disappoint here. I would highly recommend reading this series. All four books so far have been awesome and their all different in their own way so its not repetitive.

Elora is pushed through a tumbling tunnel to escape murderers and she finds herself badly wounded and in another dimension much like her own. Ram's first instinct is to kill her when she suddenly appears out of nowhere covered in blood. Storm takes the lead and saves Elora's life then nurses her back to health falling in love at the same time. Elora happens to land in the Black Swan society where they defeat paranormal threats such as vampires. Later Ram realizes that Elora is his intended mate but has he already blew his chances by wanting her dead?
This is definitely a love triangle story although it does wrap up nicely in the end. Overall I really enjoyed the story and I think it had a good plot. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that the writing didn't really flow to me it felt real choppy. But a excellent read no doubt.
I would highly recommend reading this book especially for paranormal romance fans. I'll be keeping my eye out for the next book in this series.(less)

I've enjoyed all the books in this series but it seems to be getting better and better.
This book is about Sera and Antoine. Sera is a elite vampire which means she was made a vampire. She desires nothing more than Antoine himself after the first time she laid eyes on him and she will do anything to get his attention and when I say anything I mean anything. Antoine is a aristocrat which means he was born a vampire and is higher up in society than an elite. He is a very troubled person due to his past and is suffering from the beginnings of blood lust. For these reasons he has isolated himself for almost three centuries. Antoine refuses to even touch Sera in the very beginning because she is a elite and not a aristocrat so this affects their relationship development but Sera has been strongly attracted to Antoine for a long time trying to get his attention until she comes up with a plan and a sweet plan it is.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was that we really get in depth into Antoine's character and his past therefore strengthening my relationship to the characters in the series. I fell so in love with the characters in the series with this book that I wished it had been a full length novel instead but that is the only complaint I had. lol
I would highly recommend reading this series if your a paranormal romance fan. Felicity really out does herself here. This book is a erotica novel as well so expect some very graphic sex scenes. And once again I can't wait until the next book, "Enslave", comes out to see what happens next. (less)
