I was sitting in my room the other night just thinking to myself, that I just wanted a good dirty read, and I instantly thought of this author, because I read another book of hers and knew it to downright dirty. So when I started reading this one I was surprised that it wasn't as naughty.
Emma was the chubby, but cute girl in high school. Always quiet and shy, having a crush on the sexiest guy in town who never even knew she existed. Well, now Emma has grown up and come into her own and is about to have a run in with that sexy crush from so long ago. Max is the new Puma Alpha in Halle who is looking for a mate. Little does Max know that little spark he felt when he laid eyes on Emma as a teenager is about to become a full blown mating call. But someone in the pride is not happy about this mating and will do anything to stop it.
I thought this was cute story about how sometimes you should pay more attention to things that are a little less obvious, and how people grow up and they do change. It was a fast read, and I enjoyed it. The sex scenes were mild and it really isn't long enough to really show how the characters fall in love, but it is a fun read....more

But is this soul sharing Elizabeth's body truly his mate, or is it Elizabeth herself?
I thought this was a great book, and definitely one of my favorites in the series. It was well sad, happy, and sexy.
Lothaire's back story made me cry, losing his mother like that. Witnessing her death explained a lot of why he was so evil, and explained a certain disdain for humans. It gave him more depth as a character, and made him likeable. He was strong, caring, and very intelligent. I liked the little add in that he was obsessed with puzzles. Everything you read him made him more human, which worked perfectly for his HEA Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was an amazing character. She was strong, independent, and smart. She took charge of her life at all times, even when she really didn't have a say in it. I also like how she didn't let where she was from or what people thought of her hold her back in anyway, and she was so caring of everyone.
I was really happy that she brought Thad back into the picture, he was one of my favorite characters from the previous book, and I liked Hag's character as well. I was also glad to see some of the Dorada story wrapped up, and to see her set up as future plot for the accession. All in all another wonderful installment by Kresley Cole. If you are a fan of romance with adventure, magic, sexy vampires this book is for you.
And one more thing. Kresely Cole I say this to you, get the next book out cause the cliffhanger at the end is killing me!...more
**spoiler alert** Alana is Fae princess who is sent by her brother to craft a sword that will steal the souls of Shifters and force them to do his bid**spoiler alert** Alana is Fae princess who is sent by her brother to craft a sword that will steal the souls of Shifters and force them to do his bidding. When she goes to meet the swordsman Niall, she is drawn to him over the course of the night. Once she takes the sword back to her brother, he realizes all to late that she had betrayed him. Once her brother is killed, Alana and Niall live happily ever after. I know this was supposed to be a short story, but even I thought it was too short to explain their romance away. At first they both dislike each other, and then they find out they had both had great loves before (he, his Shifter mate and she, a human slave of her brothers), and poof insta-romance. I did like the mythology behind it. I have always loved anything about faeries. And I liked the premise. I just wish it would have been longer, to give the story a little more depth, and explain their romance. I am not saying that I will not read anything else by the author. It had an excerpt from the first in the series to which this is a novella, and it looked interesting. I think I am going to give it a shot, but I can't really say I recommend this novella to anyone....more
I was close to giving this four stars. I liked the premise. Two people lock eyes across the room, instant attraction. They have a wonderful passion fiI was close to giving this four stars. I liked the premise. Two people lock eyes across the room, instant attraction. They have a wonderful passion filled night in which of course the woman puts far more stock in than the man, and then the next morning when he learns her name he verbally accuses her of being a gold digger and throws her out causing her to get in a car and have an accident, where she gets amnesia forgetting everything from that morning to six weeks prior. Then waking up to find she is pregnant but can't remember the father. I liked Delanie. She was smart, beautiful, and had a way with people. Charm and Charisma is what they call it. In a lot of ways, I wished I was like her. But I thought at the beginning she was a little too starry eyed. She looked across the room and instantly fell in love, and then once they had sex she fell even more in love, calling him her soulmate. It was just a bit much and a bit cheesy. Mitchell I just wasn't a fan of. He placed far too much stock in money. He wasn't charming, or funny. I just never really got that much of a connection between them besides the physical. But my biggest problem with this book was when she repeated the thoughts of the characters over and over again. She would go on a rant from the middle to the end of a chapter about how they couldn't understand something the other character did, and then she would start the next chapter having them restate the same thing they were mad about at the end of the last one. I did like this book, but if any kind of repetition bothers you I wouldn't suggest this book....more
