Back when I started Psy-Changeling series I was and still am a huge Christine Feehan fan and it was her quote on the cover ("I love this book! It's a must read for all my fans.") that got me interested in wanting to read this series. Instantly fell in love with Psy-Changeling series and Nalini Singh writing style.
Slave To Sensation is one of those novels I would love to go back and read for the first time and experience the unique world between Changeling's and Psy that Nalini Singh has brilliantly created. Loved that she brought a mixture of sci fi and paranormal together. For me I have never and still have not read anything like this.
Loved the layers that were peeled away little by little in Sascha's character. She starts off emotionless and a bit spineless. But that is how she was raised. Enjoyed how she gradually showed her emotions and for sure got a backbone especially when it came to Lucas. Sascha is a sweetheart once it came to Lucas pack.
Now Lucas is what I love in my cat shifter heroes. He is protective of the ones he loves but is also a sweetheart. Working side by side with Sascha his cat and him become infatuated with her. He becomes possessive and protective of her. He has an alpha male attitude but knows when to take down a notch when it comes to her. I loved that there is no insta love, readers are right along with these characters getting to know each other and rooting for them to become a couple and once they do they are hot fan your-self together.
Nalini Singh does an outstanding job at bringing many characters together with out taking away from the main characters. I love in my novels secondary characters and when done right add so much to the story line. All secondary characters play into her story line and she never bombards readers with too much info on them. She gives readers just enough info to where readers want to know more about them. All the different characters with the mixed breeds, wolf and cat shifters and even the psy bring Slave To Sensation to life. Everyone has their own voice and personality. Even though this novel is Paranormal Romance her characters and world feel real. I love how they are all known to the world and live everyday life like real families. For me I love mix breeds and the journey with Cat and Wolf Shifters working together to find the killer was at times a hoot.
Nalini Singh is the queen of Alpha Male heroes. I loved that there are many alpha males in her story and they never feel out of place. I have fallen a tad behind in Psy-Changeling series and excited I am able to partake in 2014 Psy-Changeling read a long hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup and Aly Miscellany. Look for forward to next up for Feb. Vaughn story in Visions of Heat (Psy-Changeling #2).

I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan and The Awakening (Leopard People #1) is a good start to her were-cat shifter series. Christine Feehan is known for her descriptive writing and she does not hold back in The Awakening short novel. As like many of her novels you feel like you are there in her setting but at times it can be a bit long.
Maggie takes a trip through the jungles of Borneo to check out her birth parents house that she has inherited. She finds her self feeling vulnerable and irritated. Here she meets the sexy were-cat shifter Brandt. And learns more then she has ever imagined about her self and her parents.
Since Maggie first set foot in the jungle Brandt has become irritable as she is his mate. The more time he spends with her the more he is becoming possessive and obsessive. Brandt has the attitude I love in my were-cat shifter heroes. He is arrogant, aggressive but also sweet and caring. He is your sexy alpha male were-cat that will do anything to protect his mate.
Loved Maggie and Brandt together. There are few giggle moments when she tries so hard to stand up to him. The love scene is hot and I do not think I can ever look at a Mango with out thinking of Brandt.

The world building was amazing and fresh with sexy Atlantis Warriors. Enjoyed that they all have their own personalities and the interaction between them is fun.
Conlan, high prince of Atlantis is sexy from the moment he saves Riley on the beach. Loved his over protective, possessive, jealous, alpha male attitude. Their chemistry is hot right from the beginning. Loved how they can communicate within each other minds.
Love it when authors write secondary characters leading to be couples in future novels. Just reading a little bit of Alaric and Quinn got me anxiously waiting to read their story.
Very rare you come across a good book while just browsing for another book. Well that is what happened for me. While browsing and checking up on someVery rare you come across a good book while just browsing for another book. Well that is what happened for me. While browsing and checking up on some other books I came across Colt’s Choice. Cover totally caught my eye, then I read the synopsis and sounded interesting, read some reviews all were 5 stars, then to my surprise fell in love with the novel.
Patrice Michelle had me hooked from the beginning with Colt’s, Texan drawl, rough voice calling Elise, “darlin’”. Colt is one bull headed sexy cowboy that has interest in Elise from their first meeting. He does want her but his mom was upper class like her, then she left his dad, brothers and him for the city. She just could not do the ranch life anymore. He is afraid of getting close to her, afraid she is going to grow bored of this life and leave for the city. But he can not keep his hands off her. Patrice does amazing work on writing a brooding hero that is not all about just thinking why he can not be with someone. He is still brooding and has issues with commitment but Elise has him torn up inside that he can not hold back. I loved seeing his sweet side especially some things he does for her that got me... “sighing”. He had a few jealous moments that I thought were adorable, might not be in your face jealous or throwing a fit but more done in a settle way. I found him to be protective but not the kind that one is in danger, more so with her getting hurt. Especially out on the farm, like fixing fences in a rain storm. I could go on and on how much I loved his character. Colt is for sure in my opinion a swoon worthy hero that got my heart pumping and stomach all tingly.
Love Elise character. Even though she comes from the city, she is strong will, not afraid to get dirty on the ranch and can hold her own, especially when it comes to doing hard ranching work and can take what ever Colt throws her way. She is not your wimpy heroine.
Colt and Elise I adore as individuals and loved them more as a couple. Their chemistry is off the charts. The sexual tension is off the wall, hot. The bar scene is my favorite part. It is a slow, toe curling moment that I for sure thought I was going to have to change my panties. They have many steamy moments that seemed to be everywhere, bar, barn, fence and a few chairs. Patrice is talented in teasing her readers.
The secondary characters were so much fun to read. Mace and Cade are Colt’s brother. Love their brotherly love they have for each other. Just got enough of them that I look forward to their story. They all have their own personality and are dealing with their mom leaving in a different way. Seeing them laughing and playing around on the ranch had me smiling and knowing that it was Elise that brought Colt to smile and enjoy life. Absolutely love all her characters they are so realistic they jump off the pages. The ending was perfect and how it ended was sweet, fun and adorable.
Even though Colt’s Choice is part of a series, it still can be read as a stand alone novel. If you have never read Patrice Michelle before, I highly recommend with Colt’s Choice. Patrice Michelle has a beautiful writing voice not to be missed. It is a all around feel good novel, I am excited to add a 5 star-perfect-keeper rating along with her other reviews. I look forward to reading more of her novels and this series and am now a huge fan.

Starting the New Year right with a Wicked read and hands down one of the best book couples, Cat and Bones. Halfway To The Grave has been many re-reads through out the years for me. I can't seem to get enough of Jeaniene Frost writing style and wonderful characters she has brought to life.
I loved that I got a kick butt heroine Cat who is not over the top and a building romance. I still find Halfway To The Grave refreshing and to date I do not think I have found another Paranormal Romance that the main character is a woman. It seems novels with the main character being the heroine tend to be in Urban Fantasy. With Urban Fantasy the romance tend to be not so much and not as hot as romance novels. Jeaniene Frost brought to readers a nice blend. Love that Cat is strong will, a smart mouth but still has her moments of weakness. She is known to act before think and at times kill before ask questions.
Bones rolled his eyes and clapped him on the shoulder. “I’m glad you’re still upright, Charles, and the only reason you are is because she didn’t have any silver. She’d have staked you right and proper otherwise. She has a tendency to shrivel someone first and then introduce herself afterwards.”
Now Bones is a yummy alpha male Vampire that still get's me all giddy with "Hello Kitten". He is possessive and at times a bit jealous.
“Nice to meet you, mate, and here's some advice: Don't even think about it. You try anything with her and I'll neuter you with my bare hands. ”
Loved his smart remarks with everyone and his sense of humor through out the story.
Bones held me upright. I would have protested, but I couldn’t remember how to. “What are you saying?”
“Winston poltergeisted my panties, that’s what!” I announced with a loud hiccup.
“Why, you scurvy, lecherous spook!” Bones yelled in the direction of the cemetery. “If my pipes still worked, I’d go right back there and piss on your grave!”
Overall Bones is wickedly delicious.
“I can’t wait to find out how you taste, and you won’t want me to stop even after I’ve completely exhausted you. You’ll think you were on fire, your skin will burn. I’ll suck all of your juices out of you. And then I’ll drink your blood.”
Their relationship starts off as friends and he trains her to be a better hunter. Their chemistry is hot and Jeaniene Frost knows how to tease her readers with some yummy scenes. My favorite scenes are the training and of course the bar scene with Crispin. They have to work on their relationship and at times do have to come across some obstacles. I loved the pacing of their relationship with fun and playful banter.
"Is that a stake, Bones, or are you just happy with my new dress?”
“In this case, it’s a stake. You could always feel around for something more, though. See what comes up.”
Loved all the secondary characters as they add so much to the storyline. Her mom is a hoot and love the interaction with her, Bones and Cat. Halfway To The Grave is a fun, hot read with a delicious Bones. It will have readers giggling, can not wait to see what happens next, unpredictable and wanting more of Cat and Bones. Halfway To The Grave is a novel that I wish I can go back and experience for the first time.
Had a really hard time connecting with the characters in A Passion For Him. I felt the plot was all over the place. I did not likeRating: 2 stars - OK
Had a really hard time connecting with the characters in A Passion For Him. I felt the plot was all over the place. I did not like how the first sex scene was about to take place but then ends and starts something else in the plot with other characters. Then it gets back to the sex scene. I do love good steamy scenes but the first one did drag on.
The characters were all over the place. Ware who is Amelia fiancé makes it very clear he does not want her interacting with Colin because it looks bad since they are to be wed and she needs to decide if she is going to be his wife then she needs to act like his fiancé and not pursue Colin but all the while Ware is sleeping with someone else. Colin one minute his character is flat, and kind of cheesy but the next he a sexy dominate hero with a dirty talking mouth.
I really wanted to like A Passion For Him. Love the idea of lost love. The synopsis grabbed my interest and even though it is the 3rd in the Georgian series I was not lost at all. Sylvia Day does a great job at letting the readers know what happened before but unfortunately it did not hold my interest enough and have no desire to read the pervious novels. I have yet to read The Crossfire series and heard great things about this series. I do look forward to trying that series out.
Jaci has been good friends with twins Cam and Chase for awhile. She has been in love with Cam since she was 13 and he was 18.
"Wait on me, Cam. I'll grJaci has been good friends with twins Cam and Chase for awhile. She has been in love with Cam since she was 13 and he was 18.
"Wait on me, Cam. I'll grow up and I'll take all the bad things away"
Eight years later Jaci is hoping to see Cam at a party. Now that she is 21 he will not be making her go home like he use to. Or she thought. Cam is 26 now and has wanted Jaci for as long as he can remember. He wants to keep her safe and protected from other guys that come to these parties. This is when the sexual tension starts and the dominate side of Cam comes out.
"You can go home with me, or I can take you back to your parent's," he rasped. "Which one?" "The Party---" You' re not staying here." He backed her against the front of the truck, lifting her until he was wedged fully against her, his hands sliding beneath the skirt to the bare flesh revealed by the thong she wore.
Now seven years later Jaci runs into Chase at a party hosted by her dear friend Courtney and her husband Ian. She finds out that Chase and Cam also work for Ian at his mansion, where she will be working on a design for the mansion. She has been running away from Cam and Chase for seven years since a very uneventful night happened between all of them. This is where the story gets interesting. Another client Jaci has done designs for has started some nasty rumors. Cam and Chase are not too pleased about the gossip going around. Cam made a promise to Jaci years ago that he would kill any man who hurt her. The Twins take it upon them selves to try and get the truth about the rumors and Jaci is not to happy about them meddling in her business. Chase and Cam are very protective of Jaci, but Chase has a better way of dealing with it. As for Cam he can not control his anger over someone hurting Jaci.
"Cam, you can't contol her life here." "I have no intention of controlling her life." Cam stated. "I'm going to become her life, Chase. There's a difference.
Something bad happened from Cam’s past that he is unable to have sex with a woman by himself and spend the night with a woman. I could not flip my pages fast enough to find out what happened to Cam. Lora Leigh did an amazing job keeping readers waiting for the his big secret. The only way Jaci can have Cam is if she is willing to have Chase too. It broke my heart at times reading this because she has always loved Cam and for her to have his heart she is willing to sleep with both of them. But the hardest and saddest part was when Cam was not able to sleep with Jaci in bed after their ménage. And the reason why. This goes on for a while through out the book. Jaci has let him have it a few times because of this. Loved it when Cam would have his little jealous/possessive moments. One of my fave quotes from the book.
Khalid: "There, my reputation is now once again intact, you may inform Paige you were ravished after all." Jaci: "You are a rogue." She laughed. Cam: "He's also endangered if he doesn't take his fucking hands off you"
As for Chase he is the sweet brother that can not tell Jaci no and she can walk all over him. He also loves Jaci but not the way Cam does. He knows that Cam is one that has Jaci heart. Love Chase and at times was rooting for him to have Jaci’s heart when Cam was being pig headed.
This is truly a love story where your hoping and wandering how Cam and Jaci are going to get their HEA. Lora Leigh not only wrote an erotic ménage but a good storyline with a suspenseful plot. She has you wandering through out the book about secrets and the evil people who started the gossip. The emotions run so deep with some of the sadness and anger. I love it when I read a ménage with tasteful graphic sex scenes, emotions and a good plot. Wicked Pleasure is really Cam and Jaci story on how she will do what ever it takes to have his heart. It was a nice and painful at times journey to see if she can have him trust her enough to open up about his bad past.
This is one of my fave from the Bound Heart series.

First off I fell in love with LOTU when it first came out with The Darkest Night back in 2008. I enjoyed The Darkest Kiss #2 and The Darkest PleasureFirst off I fell in love with LOTU when it first came out with The Darkest Night back in 2008. I enjoyed The Darkest Kiss #2 and The Darkest Pleasure (Loved Reyes story).
I have books up to The Darkest Surrender and was excited to get back to this series and catch up with the sexy LOTU heroes, as it as been ages since I have read them.
I was a little disappointed with The Darkest Whisper. For me I did not have any connection with Sabin and Gwen. Their characters were a bit flat. Sabin is possessed by demon “Doubt” so I really thought this book was going to have a lot of different emotions. Unfortunately there was not enough depth in the writing and could not get into his feelings.
What I loved about The Darkest Whisper was we got to see Aeron, Legion and Paris. I adore all of them and can not wait to read their stories. Up next is Aeron and his little demon friend Legion in The Darkest Passion. I am curious how she is going to handle Aeron having feelings for someone. She can be a tad possessive.
I am a huge fan of Gena Showalter and I look forward reading the rest of the LOTU heroes. If reading this series I highly recommend reading in order. Even though I did not enjoy this book as much as the others I would still recommend reading it because we get some insight on Aeron and Paris and get ready for their adventure.

Yeah baby she did not disapI love Lily Graison’s Western Romance, Willow Creek Series and could not wait to see how she does in Contemporary Romance. Yeah baby she did not disappoint.
Tempt Me Not is a sassy, fun and sexy short novel. What I love most about Lily Graison is her beautiful writing voice. Tempt Me Not suck me right in from the beginning with her witty and fun characters that I could not help but fall in love with them.
Holly the heroine is a spitfire that goes head to head with Devin the hero. I love how she has guts and plays at his own game.
Devin is a yummy rock star that I wouldn’t mind being stuck in a cabin with. He definitely had me giggling with his little remarks to Holly. He is use to having woman falling at his feet but boy does Holly make him work for it.
Their chemistry is sexy and fun from the beginning. I enjoyed how their time together slowly builds and when it does it is hot.
Towards the end kept me on the edge of my seat and it rocked. The ending was perfect and loved how it was done. Only wish it was longer to have more time with Devin and Holly. Tempt Me Not is a great start to a fun and hot series that I look forward reading about the rest of the band members.
It is rare to find a author who can top the first book in a series. Cherise Sinclair did that and more with Dark Citadel book 2 in the Master of the SIt is rare to find a author who can top the first book in a series. Cherise Sinclair did that and more with Dark Citadel book 2 in the Master of the Shadowlands series. Her writing voice is beautiful and story telling is entertaining. What did it for me was by chapter 3 you already get beautiful descriptions, just enough back story on the characters, sizzling sexual tension, and you will fall in love with the Hero who is gentle and very loving.
“You’re allowed to look, sweetheart,” he murmured, running a finger down her hot cheek. “I enjoy having your eyes on me.”
You have a modest, polite and always obey by the rules Kari the Heroine that was raised by a strict father. She was never that interested in sex until her boyfriend told her about domination and bondage. She agrees to go with him to Shadowland to take lessons. He turns into a jerk and she decides to leave but Master Z catches her before leaving and gets her to stay and keep taking lessons with Master Dan an experienced Dom who never takes a sub for more than one night after the death of his wife a few years back.
Master Dan is the brooding Hero that can not let go of his diseased wife. Dan and his wife never had kids so her death left him feeling lonely. He just wants someone to love him, but he still aches and has guilt from the lost of his wife. Because of his guilt he never takes a sub for more than one night until Kari comes into his life. Now he has so many mixed emotions that he does not know how to deal with them. It was heart-wrenching to read at times because Kari thought he was having the same loving feelings for her but then he would become cold and pull away. It was nice to see his little possessiveness/jealous streak of Kari through out the book. Dan is a sweet talker and very touchy-feely. I fell in love with Dan by chapter 3 but Master Dan you had me at chapter 5 with one little word “Nibble.”
“Red,” she whispered. She bit her lip again, and he couldn’t stand it. “If anyone nibbles those lips, it will be me,” he murmured, licking over the plump bottom one. He tilted his head and took her mouth, then delved deep inside. She tasted of rum and coke and something that was essentially Kari.
It was a joy to watch Kari transform from a mousy school teacher to a beautiful, sensual woman. She falls in love with Dan pretty quick, but who wouldn’t when you have a sexy Dom who gets you and is whispering sweet, erotic words in your ear while caressing you in a gentle and loving way. She also had a backbone as she at times spoke her mind when Dan would get cold on her and back off. She also would bite her tongue and took what ever punishments Dan gave her in a erotic good way.
It was a treat to see Maser Z and Jessica through out the book. It was always just enough to let you know how they are doing and seeing that they are still madly in love.
And can not forget The Capture Gardens scene. Oh my it is erotic, fun and intense. Hope we get more of this in the other character stories.
Dark Citadel is a keeper. This book is the one you would want to read on a rainy night in front of a cozy fire with a nice glass of wine. You do not have to like BDSM to enjoy this book. For me that was just an added bonus. It is truly a love story with a Hero and Heroine that are meant to be together and reading how they are going to get there.
It seems like with every new book I read in Master Of The Shadowlands I am loving that hero. Nolan is a sweet and sexy Dom. I love how he was always kissing Beth on the lips like they were a couple. He is a gentleman holding out chairs for her. He was fun and playful in and outside the club. He even made his punishments in the Club freakin sexy... Nolan baby you can put me up on the Bar naked anytime and punish me. Loved his sense of humor.
"Oh, God," she whispered. her mind had gone out of focus. Her heart beat so forcefully it should have knocked him off her.
He chuckled. "No need to go that far. 'Oh Master' will do."
This book was different then the others as we get more of Master Nolan outside of the Club and OMG the Play Party at his house is wickedly delicious. Plus we get to see more of Master Z, Jessica, Master Dan, Kari and definitely more of Cullen. I am happy to add another 5 star- Amazing read to Master Of The Shadowlands series.

Slade haCat Johnson writing voice and bull riding descriptions are sexy and fun. After reading UnRidden I wanted to go see some bull riders in action.
Slade has had no problem with sharing woman in the past, that is until he met Jenna. Before he met Jenna he was in a slump, tired of just having sex. It all begins with a bet of a new pair of chaps that Mustang can not get Jenna naked. It should be like all the other times just a one night stand, until their night with Jenna and everything changes. He is starting to want more than sex and a one night stand. Now he has these feelings he does not know what to do with. He is starting to feel jealous inside when Mustang is with her. This tends to leave him a bit crabby.
Mustang is a big flirt and sweet talker who always uses endearments like darlin‘. With his charm he has no problem getting a woman to join him for a night of pleasure with Slade.
I loved Jenna’s character. She does not sleep with them on the first night. When asking Slade and Mustang for drinks so she can ask them questions about bull riding she suggest a public place instead of their trailer that they offered. Mustang makes it very clear he wants her in his and Slade’s bed for the night, but his charms do not work on her. Later she realizes that she is single and they both got her hot and bothered over drinks. She has never had a ménage before so why not enjoy her time at the convention as she will never see them again.
If you love a good book with some sexy heroes in chaps than this is it. I highly recommend Unridden and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

This is something I have never read before. Rock Chick reads more like a comical mystery. I gave it 3 stars liked it because I am not really sure how I actually feel about it. There were times the story annoyed me and that was because Indy got on my nerves more than once. But then there were times, few and far I actually enjoyed her character.
Lee was of course like all Kristen Ashley's heroes sexy, possessive with an Alpha Male Attitude.
It seems like all Indy's friends are a bunch of crazies and all Lee friends are reserved. I love friends to lovers theme. Was not always feeling Lee and Indy's connection on this.
The action was over the top for me and crazy but I am assuming that is what it is suppose to be like. So I will take that in consideration when reading book #2.
