Bianca is a sassy little chica who has just found a way to live her dream by partnering up with two friends she graduated cooking school with. I don't know what it is, but whenever chefs are involved it just makes the book that much more appealing. Something about food and hot sex does it for me. Bianca's love interest is a haunted bad boy with a heart of gold. He is hired as a contractor to modernize and beautify the old restaurant our three partners had purchased together. Rey is very successful, and actually almost turns down the offer, until he meets Bianca. Let's just say sparks fly...but can Bianca look beyond his tainted past?
Book 2 was quite intriguing!! We have Ronnie who had a HUGE crush on her camp counselor that followed her into her adult life. When Nick's seemingly fairytale success climb comes to a scandalous pause due to a nasty divorce, Ronnie takes it upon herself to scoop out the truth and save him. What she doesn't count on is the fact the reality is so much more than any fantasy she has cooked up. They are plunged into a life and death situation, with the clock ticking on their romance as well as their lives. Can Ronnie mend Nick's broken heart and restore his faith?
Book 3 was completely sexy and laugh out loud funny. Meet Natasha. Growing up with lots of money and her future all planned out, she has toed the line and become everything her parents wanted her to be...and very happy doing it. Her Aunt Sharon, the rebel in the family becomes ill and enlists Natasha's help to save her upscale boutique that designs, you guessed it, sexy under garments. Off to sin city she goes to a conference to help sell the designs that will land her aunt a comfortable living. What she doesn't count on is a blast from her past being up there, and being competition. He was the one guy the unimaginably ROCKED her entire existence. Can she really just settle for a four day fling? And will he allow her?
Book 4 was for out girls that are hot for the Braves. Rini is celebrating her freedom and toasting to her future when she literally smacks right into an Indian brave dressed in war paint. For a moment she feels like she has fallen through a time warp until the giggles bring her back to the present. However the Warrior holding on to her an keep her in the past anytime. This story is about to people who have some serious issues overcoming all, with a lot of work, and healing the scars of their pasts. Both people have been really hurt and the outcome to their dynamics is heart-wrenching.
Book 5 is all about our anal, goal-oriented work-o-holic, but absolutely lovable Jill. Jill is ALL work and drive with no play time. A huge success at her firm, she prepares herself to take the next leap into management, only to be shut down by one of the partners relatives. Shocked and disheartened, she has to re-make herself and re-plan out her goals. Along the way, she discovers she has a charitable side, reclaims a life outside of work, gets over relationship issues and falls in love with the one person she was determined to hate. It turns out that sometimes the best laid plans aren't always whats best for you. The path to this happily ever after is absolutely endearing.
Book 6 was an interesting twist on magicians and twins :) Yes this book had the ability to be completely naughty, since it was about twin smoking hot men who traveled the circuit entertaining all types of audiences. Melina is the girl next door who grew up with the brothers, but feel in love with Rhys. As they grew older something came between Rhys and Melina and they grew apart, while Max and Melina became best friends. After another disastrous breakup, Melina is convinced she needs help in the bedroom area. Trusting her long-time friend to help her, she runs to Max for help. But Max has other plans up his sleeve, like finally getting the love that has been lurking between his brother and best friend finally out in the open. He lays the game for some REAL magic to be payed and let me tell you....do the sparks ever fly!!!! Definitely more on the naughty side with this tale..lol.
Book 7 is our ultimate bad boy: The Rock Star. Cole is used to getting what he wants whenever he wants it. After escaping to a small town to recover after a huge disaster on his tour, Cole winds up renting out an entire Inn that comes stoked with one incredibly HOT innkeeper. Thinking of all the naughty things he could do to her, he is shocked when she turns him down flat and walks away. The nerve! But Cole is in the for the ride of his life as this small town beauty shakes him to the very core and leaves his heart bare and open. The was an incredible story of healing and forging ones own path.
These books were all phenomenal and so enjoyed the different aspects they all brought to the table. There is a bad boy out there for all of us and will assure you that one (if not more) will capture your heart. Excellent job ladies!!! (less)

Its not at all like you would expect! It was a rough, gritty, and in your face ride that I completely enjoyed!!
Jace is one seriously bad-ass and tortured soul. He's a loner with a love for justice and the underdog, as well as a deep hate for werewolves. His latest case he's assigned to is gruesome and he almost positive the killer is a werewolf. He has a surprise waiting for him at the latest murder scene when he shows up. The biggest part of the surprise is how much he wants her in bed.
Frankie has taken it upon herself to track down the rogue killer. What she doesn't plan on is sidetracked by the super-hot stud that is already working on it. As the alpha to her pack, she has already been promised to another. But one whiff of Jace has her seriously re-thinking her duties.
The chemistry between them is electric. The story is unbelievably well written but the mystery of the whole book is Damon. If you have read the first book in the series, you know that Damon handpicked this bunch of guys specifically for their skills. So what happened to him from book 1 to book 2??? Seriously Kait, your killing us! I was totally all about him..lol. I can't wait for the rest of the series!!(less)

We take a break from our vampires and shoot about 10 years into the war. I find it interesting that the author chose that large of a gap. Jordan is Conn's best friend and has just become a walking casualty in this messy war. A virus that has affected several female shifters and has killed or turned many male shifters, has just found its way into our lion alpha.
I don't want dwell on the dynamics between Jordan and Katie because it gives away too much of the plot. What I do want to talk about is the overall effect the book had on me. This is by far the most emotional and gripping one of the series yet to come. It had a little bit of everything in it and is guaranteed to take you on an amazing roller coaster ride straight from page one until you finish. I could not put this book down. It was gripping and absolutely a must read.(less)

There are key factions that are always being introduced throughout the series (which is one of the aspects I love) but this book sets up the ground work and the main divides between the different species. This book starts with the ending of a very long period of peace within the Realm. The focus in this series is the head vampire family, which consists of 5 brothers and their hot friends who may as well be considered blood! Book one is about hunkie Talen who sweeps in and saves the day, but can't be made the favorite character (or brother) because the heart stopper in this book is only 4 years old with some tremendous abilities. But any mom will melt all over Talen with the way he handles Janie and makes Cara (who is the mom) feel like a woman for the very first time. It was an amazing read and I was so glad I could slip right into the next book. I loved Talen, but he wasn't the brother for me.....My heart was lost later on...lol....much later on.(less)

You can pick up any of the books and feel right at home...even though you may wonder about how the couples got together, and some of the back drama, it is an amazing book to start with!
This book is mainly about Michaela and Jesus. You watch how their relationship is tested in just about every way possible. The decisions Michaela is forced to make result in how the flow of their relationship, and the relationship with their friends will continue. Its not easy for Michaela because she has been alone for so long, she has no idea how to rely on someone and take others considerations before her own. She believes that friendship and love will make you weak. But she is a well of compassion.....and secretly hates killing. Such a charming contradiction our Michaela, and even though it is amazing obvious that she is totally in love with Jesus, she is struggling so hard to come to terms with it.
Jesus or J as she refers to him, is a power all on his own. Totally human, but a solid support system, and all the man Michaela(and might I say any of us?) can handle. He is loyal, loving, caring, all wrapped up in a deadly exterior package.
So there are a few surprises that pop up if you have read the series...quite a few actually. I truly hope that Ryder wasn't permanently damaged during his fight with the villain in this book. He seemed changed and lost in a darkness. Overall? It was an incredible adventure and I can't wait for book 5!!! (less)

I was absolutely sucked in from the very first page of this exciting and thrilling NEW paranormal adventure. It was an incredibly marvelous world that was created by this author. Demons have always been one of my favorite paranormal characters because there is just so much you can do with them. But this book blew Larissa Ione's Demonica series off my shelf, which was one of my favorite demon series. I HIGHLY recommend this book to all paranormal romance fans, which dipped into quite a few erotic scenes. It was an excellent mix of adventure, sex, heat, and the story line was out of this world. It flowed like this author is on her twentieth series, not her first!!
Kai was instant love for me. He was hard-core,had the tragic story line, no bullshit, gritty, and OHHHH so hot!! He had a great heart that he kept buried and held most people at arms length, which is where he tried to keep Brooke (which failed miserably by the way). Something about her pulled at him, and she was a temptation he could not ignore.
I loved watching these two fall in love. The passion was already there because the dynamics when they were together were amazing. Even before the sexual tension was admitted to each other, it obvious to those around them that something was going on and it sure wasn't hate.
This author has moved up into my top ten. I cannot believe how much I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was satisfying on every level because it was so fresh and unique. My only regret is that I cannot rate this above a 5 and that I haven't found her sooner!! Excellent read!!(less)

Lily Cheval finds her true love while hunting down a killer that has threatened their way of life. The sad part is that Sebastian happens to be a suspect. I have enjoyed Kate Douglas's Wolf Tales and was excited about this new series. This series still includes hot m/m...m/m/f ..f/f and some full on mating while in wolf form. Kate Douglas does an excellent job in the development of the characters. I loved Lily. She was charismatic, loving, sexy, and just an overall fantastic character. The chemistry between the couple was dynamic and spot on. The thing I love about visiting Kate's worlds is that she always makes everything flow naturally, as if she lived among wolves. If you have never experienced a Kate Douglas book, you are missing out. This series is starting off phenomenally!!! (less)
