A bond forged in blood. Fealty given to the one he desires above all others.

Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth--nothing is more important. Until a

“To come?” he offered, licking her nape. “I’d love to make you come. Just tell me how you want it.”

Oh Wow! What a book! I LOVED IT!

Omega Mine had me riveted and enthralled from the first page to the last. Aline Hunter has created a multifaceted and gritty paranormal world with a solid and intriguing plot, richly developed characters, and a provocative, explicitly erotic, and enticing love story.

In fact, what I loved the most about this book was the way the author constructed the relationship between the hero and heroine. It was refreshing and satisfying to read a
“There is nothing more important in this world to me than you and there never will be."

Omega Mine is the first book in the Alpha and Omega Series. Ava Brisbane is a bartender who has always known that she was different. Living in a world where shifters, vampires, and powerful entities intermingle with their human counterparts, Ava is wary of putting her trust in anyone. Diskant Black is the most powerful shifter in the city. When he discovers that Ava is his mate, he will do whatever it t

It is certainly a hot read

The shifter theme didn't overtake the whole romance in the book which I was pleased about as I'm not completely into paranormal books. The EXTREMELY hot sex more than made up for any reservations I had

Meet Diskant The hot shifter who drives a Harley and knows his way around the female body to induce toe curling orgasms and extreme pleasure.

What I want to know is where is he so he can have his wicked way with me?

I started this one on audio but when it came to the sex I had to switch back over to the ebook version because the narrator pretending to be a man slamming his big thick cock into the woman's lady bits, was quite off-putting. Listening to someone say "...the cream of her cunt mixed with the pungent odor of his seed." made me feel weird, and not in a good way. I've read a lot of rude stuff, but I think erotica via audio is my limit unless it's an actual man reading his parts, then maybe
this was like reading some huge sex scene with couple of pauses to insert some plot...

“Hang on, Ava mine. From here on in, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.”

Can I just say, I swooned every freaking time he said “Ava mine”. Coming from a 200 pound possessive Alpha Omega there was just something so sweet, tender and HAWT.

Ava keeps to herself, knowing she is special but never truly realizing what it all means. Time and time again she has had to bail out her brother but this was the last time. All she wanted was to get her family locket back but not when it would cost

I loved this book! It was super hawt! They could not keep their hands off each other! I loved that they were together most of the book. It made for a more enjoyable read not having relationship angst. Plus the world building was interesting and the suspense plot was really good. I hope the next book keeps up the pace.

Diskant is an Omega shifter, which means he has several animals that he can shift into and he helps with all the packs/prides. Ava is human but she does have some pretty nifty powers of her own. They met when Ava got attacked by vampires and Diskant saves her. Right away he can tell that she is his mate and he takes her home. She is unconscious from the attack but he can hardly contain himself. When she finally awakens, she takes off at the first possible moment.

C- or weak 3 stars

This is the story of a telepathic human woman named Ava who becomes mated to Diskant, an Omega shifter. The first half of the book is focused on the mating process. (The H/h can't get enough of each other.) The characters didn't seem very sexy or sensual. Instead of intimacy there are dripping loins, wet panties, and uncomfortable buldges in the hero's leather pants.

The plots gives hints to something sinister, but the characters must satisfy their lust for each and the plot ge

This book was so freaking hot! Paranormal erotica done right!

This is the book that I wanted Feral Sins to be. It was ridiculously sexy, had a nicely developed shifter world, and an insta-love even a jaded reader like me could get into. And thank GOD we didn't get an annoying, whiny heroine. Ava was just perfect- sexy and confident. She doesn't do any of the things that irritate me in these types of books: She doesn't pout, she doesn't pick silly fights, and she doesn't storm off con

Only an Omega bore the mark of all the races and possessed the ability to change into any of them. That meant total submission and respect was bestowed to him among the shifters. In the city that never sleeps he was in charge, and it wasn't open to discussion.

That's Disktant (sigh) the Omega, a king among the shifters! And well, if i love an alpha male i FREAKIN LOVE the Omega!!

4.5 stars

This was a fresh addition to the ever-popular paranormal romance genre. Aline Hunter has created a complex world involving shifters, vampires, mages, warlocks (and witches I assume), a secret society of dubious intent, and a religious zealot group hell-bent on eradicating the "demon-possessed". In Hunter's world the varying animal-based shifter groups, while each lead by an alpha, are all in fact united by Omega, the ultimate shifter who can channel all of the animals at will.

I loved this book! It was just fantastic -- everything I look for in a paranormal romance. The hero is sexy, protective, kind, noble -- all kinds of good. The heroine was sweet, spunky, brave and funny! PLUS, she was under 5 ft tall (I am 4'10" so this works for me story-wise. I get sick of all the Victoria Secret model heroines).

The plot was great. The writing was wonderful. The sex scenes were frequent, quite detailed and definitely intense!

This was a very pleasant surprise. Was this book hot?

But it actually had a pretty good plot.

While I wasn't too invested in Diskant and Ava's story (don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed just didn't have any wow factors to it) I was still thoroughly drawn in to the Aline Hunter's world building.

I will happily be continuing the story with Emory and Mary's story...but I CANNOT wait for Trey and Sadie's story
For this reader, too many typos, some really wonky sentences, and reams of graphic sex diminished a promising plot. Ellora's Cave can do better. Some of their publications are great.

Ellora's Cave (EC) publishes different types of imprints. In terms of heat, the Blush imprint is "traditional romance, with less emphasis on sex" while the Romantica imprint is "erotic romance." You would not know it from GR or Amazon info (unless you click the "LOOK INSIDE" link), but EC classified Omega Mine as Ro

Until he comes across a tiny, pixie haired human, who brings him to his knees. Nothing matters but making her his and keeping her safe, because finally he has found his mate.

But Ava Brisbane is not just a fragile human, she’s a strong telepath, who can read the thoughts of all humans, but not shifters. She can’t deny the in


If you give me an alpha male (whose body is pure sin), all tatted up and with baddass engraved in his blood...Well, let's just say that you have one incredible happy woman.

I LOVED this book. Great characters and even greater plot.

Diskant was LIFE, ladies.

That man had everything I like in a male character going on for him. And surprisngly enough, HE WASN'T AN ASSHOLE!!! A first when dealing with alpha males.

And Ava...

She was super likable. Always showing us a vulnerable side, without being that

At first I was worried this would be a fated-to-be-mated sexfest with a side of story, but thankfully, I was wrong. After the initial couple of chapters, the story turned out to be really good, the entire cast of characters- bad and good, are well written and not just shoved in between the break in the sex scenes. And let me tell you, the sex scenes are hot!

That wasn't my review. That's me rambling (though most of my reviews look like me rambling. LOL)

It's always a disappointment when I read a good story destroyed by too much sex. This book had potential: some world-building, plenty of interesting characters, a political thread that could get good, a couple with the possibility of a real conflict. And everything is drowned in sex.

How annoying is it when you have to skip all those sex scenes because you want to read the meaty, meaningful part? :)
