“I am Chanku, Sebastian. After a run, I really want to fuck. No strings. No ties. I just really, really want sex. Are you up for that?”
He shook himself, and she thought of a big dog coming out of the rain. But then he glanced down at the front of his slacks and raised his head and one eyebrow. “I guess I am.”
Did I get your attention?
As if you didn’t already know already Kate Douglas in one of my favorite authors. Not only is her writing smoldering hot but she is brilliant! Dark Wolf is the second generation of Chanku; The Spirit Wild Series is another Slam-dunk from the queen of erotic novels, Kate Douglas.
I have read along while the first generation met, mated, married, and eventually had children. Now I get to travel along with the pack again in this all new fresh look on their society. This generation knows their heritage and makes no excuses about what they are and what they want.
Lily Cheval is basically the princess of their kind and is all Alpha. She has never meet a man who challenged her and her wolf until Sebastian. Sebastian Xenakis is the son of Aldo Xenakis, a dark wizard that the pack has never trusted. But is Sebastian like his father?
Brutal killings are taking place and all signs point to Chanku. The pack feels like they are being set up and suspect their largest critic Aldo may have something to do with it. But Sebastian seems to be in all the wrong places at the times of the killings.
Lily is torn, she feels the pull to this strong man but if he even Chanku? Humans and Chanku pairs never work out. And something isn’t right with Sebastian, could it be his fathers dark magic or is he playing Lily?
Dark Wolf is a thrilling and sensual dive back into Chanku society whether or nor you have read the first generation or not do not miss this one.
This Book released today Pick it up immediately.
I was provided an advance reader copy by the author for purposes of review, I received no compensation for it.

I don't how Gordon always catches me off guard! Maybe because she keeps me up reading all night. The Rise is a masterful blend of heart racing action, fear, betrayal, and unyielding love.
The Montgomery sisters take us on a dark journey in book 3, more secrets to be discovered, and some one is tested to the brink (and way past) of insanity.
And through it all Alexa's Libra, Kayden, is steadfast in his support of Alexa.
But the Question is what happened to Jackson? Will Alexa learn about his secrets?
Ms. Gordon is a master. Extremely fast paced action, desperation, insanity, loss, and love, she will put you through the ringer in this one. You will feel exactly how she intends you to feel. Some people will die and you can't seen really care and others will make you cry. The series is unlike any other, pure perfection.
I really can't say much more because there are things that I do not want to spoil all the fun!
First off I have to say ignore the cover. I don't think it fits the story. Ok now onto the good stuff...I really enjoyed thisMy Review Short and Sweet
First off I have to say ignore the cover. I don't think it fits the story. Ok now onto the good stuff...I really enjoyed this story! I love when we have all types of supernatural creatures into this mix (when it works and this one absolutely works).
Cory is a strong female lead who kicks ass! Enter the sexy Vampire Nick and you have one steamy read. Not only do you get a great paranormal romance add in a good mystery, surprises, and intrigue and you have a hit!
Thanks to Diva Alana for recommending and to Lanie Malone for providing me with a review copy!

This was an action packed read. A nice change is the paranormal genera. Deacon Chase's family was killed by vampires and now his only goal is to kill monsters until one takes him out so that he may join his family. Deacon is not your typical hero, he is a 6'4 320 pound bad boy with a bad attitude... and a good Catholic. He owns a strip club that helps fund his fight and has taken in anyone who has had a run-in with the monsters. Shaved head, goatee, and covered in tattoos her appearance just screams trouble. He has no interest in women and just lives for vengeance. Maybe that might change in later books and as a lover of paranormal romance I really think I can love this series regardless if we cross that bridge. I am looking forward this series and you have a new fan Mr. Tuck!

Found a couple of pics that could pass for Deacon...
Let first say that Masquerade was dipped in awesomesauce with a side of superb! This book was beautifully written. I loved the different points of view throughout the book and the characters were lovable and fierce at the same time which is my favorite combination.
We have Heven, who you get to know in Before as a popular girl who has it all. She is about to be named captain of the cheer team, has the gorgeous best friend/ wing woman, and is about to start dating Brice the majorly hot football player. Sounds like a great fantasy right?
It's shattered because soon after that there is an accident and Heven is left disfigured with scars on half her face. Now in Masquerade we find Heven hiding from the world. Gone is the confident carefree cheerleader, what is left is a girl trying to survive.
I love Heven because we journey with her through her self discovery of self-worth. I don't want to go on and list all the things about Heven that I love because I think you will discover them for yourselves and I don't want to spoil anything. Let's just say she is a kick-butt teenage heroine that mom's all over the world can be assured that their daughters have found a stunning positive role model.
Next we have Sam... I really can't say too much about Sam without spoiling some things except that he is such a sweetheart! Let me see what I can tell you about Sam... there is not really a stereo type I can give you because he is a little bit of everything all rolled up into one nice package. Sam spots Heven one day and it changes his world. He is disparately in love with her and just wants to watch her and keep her safe. But Sam also has a dark secret...
Staring in my fantasy's this week was Garrett Hedlund as Sam. With his flashing hazel/gold eyes, strong body, and good looks we have one yummy character.
This was an absolute MUST read! Ms. Hebert is an author to keep you eye on because I have a feeling this is just the start of a parade of amazing books we are going to see from her. I am a fan and I will be reading anything she puts out now!
Thank you to Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! the BEST group on goodreads! And to the lovely and talented Ms. Cambria Hebert wicked cool book girl!
I would change absolutely NOTHING about this book.
Rating – 5 Stars!!! Recommended for –Teens and Adults

To me it had a very Edward and Bella feel to it. The start of their romance seemed to have to same characteristics with Tristan being so hot and cold and Kalista falling so hard and fast. I found that I still had allot of questions when it ended like exactly what is the Ylem? Maybe we are not supposed to know yet (obviously) but still I would like to know since it is the title of the book I just read.
It was an interesting story but I really don't want to get into the plot to much because I think maybe it would spoil the way the books reads and what it discovered when.
Instead here it the description from goodreads...
An ancient book, a seventeen-year-old girl and an exotic boy from a supernatural world hold the key to freedom for a long-oppressed race, but that freedom could come at the cost of the human world.
Seventeen-year-old Kalista is suffering from a broken heart, so when her playwright father proposes they move their lives from New York to New Mexico because he is in need of inspiration Kalista is 100% on-board with him. New Mexico proves to be the perfect balm for her wounds and she is just starting to feel some of her old spunk when Tristan Winfield comes into her life and pulls all of her barriers down. Kalista is captivated by Tristan's unusual silver eyes and feels an inexplicable connection to him, which begins to manifest itself in her dreams with bizarre images of a waterfall and an orb.
While searching for an explanation for her troubling dreams, Kalista discovers an ancient book which holds the secrets of a supernatural race of creatures. But when Killings hit town, she realizes her finding has come at a high price. She's in the middle of a power struggle now, and a secret seems to be wrapped within the pages of that book. A secret she and Tristan are part of...
So I would say this is a good read, and would be appropriate for a younger teen as well as entertaining for the older YA readers as well. It is definitely worth it to check it out and is an inexpensive ebook!
Thanks to Read 2 review in Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! group and the the author for sharing her work with me. ...more
I am completely beside myself, I have no idea how to make you understand the howspectacularthis book is...
Did you love Blood Warrior?
Wasn't it great?SI am completely beside myself, I have no idea how to make you understand the how spectacular this book is...
Did you love Blood Warrior?
Wasn't it great? Suspenseful? Didn't you love Alexa and her journey?
Did you hold it dear to your heart as I have?
Throw it in the f-ing trash!
Why???? Because it is Hankey the Christmas poo next to Half Black Soul.
This past year has found breakout author H.D. Gordon very well indeed. Her writing has surpassed Blood Warrior by leaps and bounds and now we have an author who will reinvent the genre. H.D. Gordon is Stephen King for Young Adults. I know I can’t believe I said it either but mark my words this young author is going to be a best seller before you know it.
Alexa is magic, a tough young heroine with a very dark side to her. In book 2 we get a better look at that monster and what it is capable of. Also since half the book is written in Nelly’s perspective you get a very good look into her mind and it’s not all peaches and cream guys. We know Nelly is half Lamia already but she has held her power in check because Alexa has always been there to protect her. Now with Alexa on a mission to find out what really happened to their mother Nelly has to protect herself as well as try to figure out what he sister has discovered. Also on this journey, nope I don’t do spoilers so keep reading, we get a better look at Kayden and the stuff our sexy hero is made of *sigh*….
Can it get any better than that? DO NOT answer that because just when I think it can’t get any better, you know it does.
There are some huge bombshells Ms. Gordon drops on us in this book, surprises even I didn’t see coming. This is a gripping journey into a spectacular and unique world, there is nothing like it out in this genre. I said in my review of Blood Warrior that House of Night and Vampire Academy fans will enjoy this world, well… in this book H.D. Gordon separates herself from those well known titles because they are NOT like this darkly thrilling world.
I gave Blood Warrior 5 stars and now I wish I hadn’t because now I have to invent a new category as everything else will now be judged…BEAST!!!
You will love it if you like bad ass Chicks, sexy heros, fast paced stories, and epic adventures.
Edgy YA - recommend for older teens and Adults
Rating - BEAST
Release Date January 31st 2012, Do. Not. Miss. it.
You know I already know what Alexa & Nelly look like... they have their own covers.
And this is my new Jackson is this guy... have no clue who he is!

This was an interesting mix of short stories. With a little something for anyone that enjoys erotic books. I would recommend this one for anyone looking to sample a bunch of new (new to you) authors. Obviously there isn't allot of story leading up to the steamy encounters... kind of like the equivalent of porns "money shot" but worth the read! ...more

"Dream Catchers" by Kate Douglas
Wow can I just say I am all strapped in and ready for the journey Ms. Douglas? Do I own everything by Kate Douglas... UH HUH!!!! This story is more sci-fi than I am used to but if it is written by Kate than it is for me. I know there will be two more books by Ms. Douglas is this series and I can't wait! I am not big on sci-fi but I already love this world from the imaginative Kate Douglas. Douglas never lets me down when writing erotica and I already love Mac, our handsome young computer geek. This story takes place back in the 90's when the great internet boom is about to take place. Mac literally calls out to his dreams girl Zianne and she is given form from his fantasies. What a way to start!
“Taken Between” by Crystal Jordan
“Between” in Jordan’s world means being a shifter, I know I thought it was going to mean a ménage too! While I have read quite a few of Jordan’s outstanding erotic books before this story is going to cost me… all this did was make me add all of her stuff to my to be read stack and heat up my credit card as well as my body temperature!
"The Right Number" by Lynn LaFleur
Now this was a great little number, lol no pun intended, about a sexy wolf shifter who accidentally calls the wrong number and ends up talking to his mate who happens to live 2000 miles away. After some great phone sex they finally meet and get some great action in and out of the bedroom.
Loved every minute of this one thank to the wonderful authors who are always steaming up the pages! ...more
