Taken is a collection of novellas from the Elite Ops, Tempting Seals and Wounded Warriors Series, some of Lora Leigh`s most popular works.
There are 6 stories;
Reno`s Chance
For Maggie`s Sake
Atlanta Heat
Night Hawk
Cooper`s Fall
Sheila`s Passion
As I read these I remembered every reason why I like her books, why these series are some of the best military alpha hot ones out there and why Wild Card (Nathan) is a tattered dog eared paperback from being reread so many times.
My favourite man, oops sorry

Caution: This book my cause spontaneous combustion.

Taken is a collection of six sizzling hot novella length stories by Lora Leigh. Oozing sexually stimulating tales of burning hot romance, reading this book is a sure way to get your temperature rising.

I have read quite a few of these novellas separately but now it comes in a convent collection called Taken. For Lora Leigh followers, many of these books are part of existing series, giving you more background into the works you already follow...or

Review copy provided for an honest review

Lora Leigh has compiled a book of some of my favorite books in some of my favorite series that she has written in the past. I was thrilled to have revisited with some of the people that brought me to the Adult Erotic genre. Was I disappointed that I didn’t get to spend some time with The Men of August or with the Callahan’s, yes …. but, she brought a smile to my face with her Seal’s, Elite Ops a

Taken is a good collection to sample Ms. Leigh's erotic suspense writing.  For those who are interested in her Elite Ops or Tempting SEALs series, this is the book to read. In each one of these novella, Ms. Leigh brings together a tough military man and a tempting sweet woman. When romance readers want alpha males and women who can keep up with an alpha male, Ms. Leigh is the go to author.

I thoroughly enjoyed each of the six stories in this collection. The stories are tightly written with a begi
This is a collection of short stories by Lora Leigh. Some better than others...

Reno's Chance
This one is just a waste of time. Raven is annoyingly immature and I couldn't for the life of me understand what Reno saw in her. There's virtually no story, just lots of OK sex that I ended up skimming through for the most part. When they aren't doing it, one or the other of them is repeating the same old thoughts in their heads for the umpteenth time. Blah blah blah.

This is a collection of Black-Ops Novellas. Lora Leigh is an excellent writer. All of these short stories fit in with all of her series other than the breeds. Although all of these were good enough to draw me into her other series, the Breeds are still my favorite & I was slightly disappointed that none of them included that series. Oh well!

If you are a Lora Leigh fan, you will HAVE to get this one too, because it's filled with tid-bits of continuing saga info. Keep in mind that Lora Leigh i

oohhh, you know how I love a man in uniform (and when he’s out of it *wink*). This is a collection of novellas featuring heroines with fire, and heroes both military and law. Rub them together and watch the sparks explode! Mix it with intrigue and suspense and you have several hours of absorbing reading! This book includes: Reno’s Chance, For Maggie’s Sake, Atlanta Heat, Night Hawk, Cooper’s Fall & Sheila’s Passion.

First reviewed at Red Hot Books here:

Ordinarily novellas or shorter stories are not my thing but I do read them if they are a part of a series I am already in to. Taken is a collection of novellas and short stories by Lora Leigh. All of these have been previously released so if they sound familiar that is why.

Reno’s Chance

This one is the first in Ms. Leigh’s Tempting Seals series and even though it is short, Raven and Reno are one of my favorite couples f

As this is a collection of five novellas and a short story, I will keep the reviews short. I must say that Ms. Leigh writes great sex and I thoroughly enjoyed this collection. It serves as a great sample of her work and it definitely left me wanting more, especially from her Wounded Warriors series.

Reno's Chance (Tempting SEALS #1) – 5 stars
I have to say that I quite enjoyed the twist in this story. So often it is the girl chasing the hot Navy SEAL, while waiting for him to realize that he loves
