I read this a while ago, so short review. Especially as I was a bit lost when I read it, because I hadn't read all 27 stories that came before. Katy and Devil. She is a breed but didn't know it growing up as she isn't as obvious as some. The authorities want to experiment on her but she's blockaded in her house. He's some kinda assassin/spy and has been watching her for years. He rescues her and well,
I honestly can't remember much more. i remembe ...more
1. The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day. At first I thought, "Ugh, a black swan curse story. Boring!" Well this was much better than I thought. I wish I would have learned a little more about what happened before the ep ...more
I’ll be honest, when I saw Alyssa Day and Meljean Brook had stories in here, I begged, pleaded, and promised unsavory things to get Enthralled. I’m glad I did. Not only did I get the promised goodness I knew would come from Day and Brook, but I was also able to sample some of Lora Leigh and Lucy Monroe. I have heard of both authors but had not yet ventured into reading their series. I will be sure to rectify that as soon as possible.
Goodreads does not offer a way to rate each story in an anthology, except by rating within the review. Enthralled earned 5 stars from me for Salvage, an Iron Seas love story/pirate adventure/steampunk tale. Georgie and Thom are my favorite characters since the Iron Duke and Mina. Georgie is a great female character, and the fake sex scene had me laughing hyst ...more
The Devil's Due...It seems quite a while since I've read a Breed's story after reading all of them in a space of a couple of years. Despite a million reasons not to continue I must admit I do love my "guilty Pleasure" read and it was good to be in the Breeds' world again. As a novella, nothing of super significance happened to move the plot along except a bit of a teaser concerning Rule Breaker w ...more
1. Salvage in the Iron Seas series...Georgianna and Big Thom are my new fav Steampunk couple!!
2. As of my 2019 reading, Salvage by Meljean Brook and Ecstasy Under The Moon by Lucy Monroe do not appear to be available anywhere else (at least I couldn't find any GRs listing.), so these two appear exclusive to this anthology.
3. Nice mix of stories. All enjoyable as rated below!

In my compilation I think the Lora Leigh book is missing which is alright with me as I haven't liked her Breed books. It is a library digital audio book and I don't think any of the audio versions has the Lora Leigh story as it is sold separately for $17. I'm glad to skip it. I started it for the Iron Seas novella (really like the Iron Seas) and the League of the Black Swan (Wanted to try Alyssa Day's new se ...more

Lora Leigh returns to her familiar Breed world with The Devil's Due. This is the story of the dealer of Death, Devil, and his mate, Katie. What they undergo is not simply about finding each other, but also dealing with those enemies who want Katie dead.
We don't get the usual sexual tension and woman fighting the mating heat, but Lora does't disappoint us with the intense sexual Breed encounters that we have come to enjoy in t ...more
Actually, it wasn't that bad. I didn't like two of the stories, but "didn't like" is quite different from dislike, so I can say it was a good enough read.
Honestly, I bought it for the Breeds novella. I love Meljean Brook. But while I love to read them, missing one of her stories doesn't mean you ...more
The Plot is amazing yet it had to ruined by the crappy dialogue.
not to mention the story moved way too fast, there was nothing substantial there.
the heroine looked weak and pathetic, come on when is Lora Leigh going to make a feisty heroine.
And as usual the guy was totally domineering and controlling and Katie the main girl just gave in quick. the plot line was the same as all the other books but this had no substance, katie the heroine was just a fickle character. this was not ...more

I love Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series, and for that reason alone I was excited to read this anthology. And I’m glad that I did, because I really liked three of the stories, and found two additional new authors that I’m excited to read more of.
The Devil’s Due by Lora Leigh is a story set in the Breeds universe. I have to be honest, I didn’t even like this story well enough to pay that much attention as I was reading. I didn ...more
A recessive Wolf Breed is revealed and she has to hide from almost everyone. Those against the Breeds want her dissected and checked since she passed all the tests which were supposed to show she is a Breed. None of those tests were successful until the fever hit and she found out she is, after all, not human. Those who are not against the Breeds see the benefits of having her. This is a standard Breed story minus the arguing common to other Breed stories.
I was mo ...more
Lora Leigh can write good sex. Beyond a doubt the woman came make the pages sizzle with her erotic descriptions. But after 28 books, this series has gotten very stale, and I'm ready for the story to end. Nothing new here.
League of the Black Swan 1.5 - The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day - 3 1/2 stars
This novella introduces us to Day's world of the Black Swan, a series that I'm not familiar with but found intriguing. Day's PNR world of Bor ...more
The Devil's Due by Lora Leigh - 4 stars.
I have not yet read the Breeds series by Lora Leigh and I now know that I will definitely be adding the many books to my bloated to read list. This was one hot little story and I loved the two main characters Kate and Dev.
The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day - 4 stars
I enjoyed this story about a young woman cursed to become a swan and sing t ...more
The anthology starts out with Ms. Leigh and her breed series. This one I read out of order. Now that I've read it, it makes more sense. We learn about Katie and her ability to hide her Breed status so well that testing shows up negative for her. We also find out even if the American Breeds have it bad, the Europeans have it worse. I th ...more
Note that this review is for Meljean Brook's Iron Seas novella "Salvage" only.
I found this short story better than the previous book Riveted, probably because it does refer back to Heart of Steel and Here There Be Monsters. Although I have to say I don't remember Tom's character in those books at all. Again, I have to reiterate that I'm not a super-fan of the steampunk genre so my rating is somewhat biased.
Wow. I don't think you could really pick more different stories to cram into a collection together. If this had been just the Black Swan story and the Iron Seas story this would be five stars, around a 9/10, just great. It makes sense, I guess, because that's why I got the collection, or why my partner got it for me, because I liked those two series and was hungry for more. But the two shifter stories...wel ...more

NOT Enthralled about the Devil Getting His Due
PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW REFERS **SOLELY** TO “DEVIL’S DUE”.
I bought “Enthralled”, the anthology containing stories by Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Maljean Brook and Lucy Monroe in the print edition, basically because I couldn’t wait to have it in my hot little hands on release day for the Breed story, Devil’s Due. Was “Devil’s Due” worth almost $10? N.O. Okay, okay, so it’s 25% of the book, so was it worth $2.50? Big ole N.O. Was I pissed as all get-out ...more
