Can sworn enemies cross the line and fall in love?

Reason Orlov, a vampire-human, is the princess of the vampire coven. Never quite feeling like she fits in, the hybrid has spent her life trying to rise to the expectations of her father, the vampire king.

Jack Alagona—better known as Jackal—is the second-in-command in his wolf pack. Set in his domineering alpha ways, the wo

Battle of Wills!

Man what patience and determination and control! I can't imagine that I would have that much control and patience with such a sexy, commanding hunk like Jackal and I'm a very patient person!

Vampire Hybrid and daughter of the most powerful vampire of NY and the Northeast King Oskar Orlav, Princes Reason Orlav has never really been accepted by either the vampire, or the human world, but that has never stopped her from being the best that she can be, just like her 2 BFF's Hybrids li

Lovin the series

Excellent read just like the first 2. (You must start at first book) its very fast paced so you don't want to put it down. Love how the author goes back and forth between his and her views, so you always know what each main character is thinking. Hot, sexy parts, HEA, oh and hybrid vampire and shifter love.

It takes Reason to claim a broken whither heart and soul

This story was worth the wait. Reason went against her father on all turns of her life. Okscar Orgor was the ruthless vampire leader of the northeast. His hybrid daughter Reason took no prisoners. Although she was his daughter she was seen as an abomination because she wasn't a pure vampire due to Human mother. It that didn't stop her fierce personality. She used it to make her who she was and let no one close to her heart until that one ma

One more amazing addition to the series! Each story begins where the last one left off. Questions get answered, but new ones appear! If you are following the series, you are aware of the "magnetic pull" between Reason and Jackal. They are each dancing around the draw to the other...but will they be able to continue? Will Reason be forced into marriage with Stephan? Will the Other's war commence?
So much going on, so many possible scenarios, only the characters and author know how this will

This book should have come with warnings!
There was no warning stating that I would become so enchanted by the characters that I would not be able to put this down until the last page had been read -
my 16yr old had to make his own dinner, not a pretty sight
There was no warning saying I would be on an emotional rollercoaster through the whole story-
smiling and laughing one page and then pleading to the kindle gods for strength on the next (oh and some seriously "fan yourself shut the door" mome

Shifters vs Vampires

The two factions have a tentative treaty but with the Shadows trying to disrupt everything that treaty might be over before it can be finalized. Reason is the daughter of the Vampire king, she is independent and progressive. Her father wants her married and pregnant, forever ineffective. Jackal is a shifter with a grudge against vampires. Fate has made Reason Jackals mate and that is just the start of their problems.

Another great paranormal romance novel Sedona Venez!!!! This book contains drama, betrayal, hope, dreams, intrigue, deception, and finding true love. Jackal and Reason had instant attraction but force it to the end. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know!!!!

I highly recommend this series to those who love paranormal romances. Each book features great characters. I especially love the strong female characters that challenge the men who want them. The men are just as strong and very hard to resist.

Reason is half-vampire and half human which causes issues in the vampire world. Her father is very powerful and wants her to find a nice vampire to have children with to continue his legacy. Jackal is wolf shifter and one of the betas of his pack. He has no

Best Friends that stick together

It's been nice to see each friend fall in love and find their mate! I hope Venez does a book on how Lighting was rescued and of how she and Ryker get the Others to unite. Lighting and Ryker are my favorite couple from this series!
Good story with a climatic ending and eroticism but used common clichés once too often. 3.5 stars

When I read book 1 in this series, I only did it because of the author. I am not too much into Paranormal, but I had loved every book of Sedona Venez's that I had read, so I decided to give it a try. It did not take me far into the book, before I was hooked. I have been looking forward to this book for awhile, and was so excited when it arrived, and it did not disappoint. The writing is just phenomenal. She keeps you on your toes reading this book, so that you do not want to stop reading. It has ...more

Great series!

The women in this series are hot headed and hard to control. I like how the stories are a mixture of shifters, vampires witches and more.

Wow, wow, wow!!! Absolutely amazing! This was a great book! Reason Orlov is the vampire princess that has so many responsibilities, one that includes her father forcing her to marry a consort of his choosing. And it just so happens to be a man she despises. When her best friend gets kidnapped by the shadows, she works with the shifters to help find her. Little did they know her friends own father had her. But, during the mix of locating her, Reason starts working close to Jackal who is a shifter ...more

You immediately fall into the story and are routing for an HEA for Reason. The background is wonderful and you can immediately see and feel everything in such vivid detail. This is a third story in a series but it can be read as a standalone. I am volunteering to leave a review for an ARC of this book.

Jackal is slowly learning that his woman has a stubborn side and doesn't budge, like on anything, “Jesus, woman,” Jackal snapped. “Why can’t you follow simple instructions?” His eyes flashed angrily before he gave me a light push, motioning for me to move behind him, but I refused to budge." Jackal tends to get turned on at bad times, “dang.” He laughed huskily. “You fighting like a h***cat is so effing hot. I’m harder than a rock right now.” I loved Jackal and I'm eager for the next book

This was one emotional ride. Reason is a vampire princess being protected and sheltered by her father because she is a hybrid. She is a good lawyer working for her father but he won't make her a partner because he wants her to marry a man she hates to carry on their legacy. Now, her best friend is kidnapped by her grandfather and she runs to the pack to help. Jackal is a broken wolf shifter. His mate and unborn child were killed by vampires so how could he be attracted to Reason? They have a lon ...more
