Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A short erotic novel, and two erotic novellas…..

Opening Sentence: “The bald leather-clad man hauled the plump, pretty blond across his lap and flipped her short PVC skirt to reveal lacy stockings, a garter belt, and no panties at all.”

The Review:

Oath of Service is a short novel focusing on Morgana Le Fay and three knights, Percival, Cador and Merrick. Although the majority of the romance is between Morgana and Percival, both Cador and Merrick ar

I am returning to one of my oldie favourite authors. Ms. Knight brings to us deliciously kinky story in Oath of Service. Wow. This story set in the Mageverse is right up my alley. Morgana le Fay is one icy cold witch who keeps her submissive tendencies under lock and key. It is impressive she's been able to keep it suppressed for 15 centuries. Because honestly, being around alpha dominant males would make me melt into a puddle. Morgana is made of sterner stuff and she uses her magic to jolt the ...more

More of a 3.5, because this really isn't my bag but hey, if you're into kink... I mean, the first one is a pretty decent story. It's also well over half the book.

As to why I read it? The first story.

Ya know, most authors, when they write a throw-away type installment in a series, do it with some random couple nobody cares about. Here we're advised we can skip it because it doesn't actually bring anything to the Mageverse series's Morgana le Fey - HBIC. You don't skip a main character. S

*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

I confess to loving the books by this author that are set in her Magaverse world and was so pleased that this anthology includes a full length story from there. This book also contains two very short stories as well and they have something in common, fangs and dominant men! These stories are hot and peppered with kinky sex, bondage and of course blood! Entertaining to read but not for those

The stories in this anthology get progressively hotter. The first story, Oath of Service, is part of her popular Mageverse series, a series I’ve followed since the beginning. They’ve always been a bit spicier than most mainstream. This anthology takes that spicy and ramps it up to erotic. I really loved this novella, it was very sexy and kinky.

Morgana la Fay has avoided being alone with Percival for years, he’s the one man she’d happily submit to. When things go wrong, and she’s required to swea

These three fantastically erotic paranormal romance stories take the reader’s breath away. Angela Knight’s stories always spark the imagination and take readers on fantastic adventures full of excitement and red hot passion and these three are no exception. Oath of Service is the main story in the book, which is why most of my review is focused on it and while the other two stories are short, all three are enjoyable and entertaining must reads.

Love Bites is an anthology of three vampire stories that are laced with BDSM elements. The three stories are Oath of Service, Be Careful What You Wish For, and Bloodslave. Oath of Service is part of the Mageverse stories, while Be Careful is a never before published work, and Bloodslave was previously published in another book. And just to keep it interesting, a sample chapter of Ms. Knight’s newest book is included

Angela Knight takes readers back to the mageverse in her latest anthology. Love Bites not only contains a full length story set in the mageverse, but two shorts and a preview of Knight's next book. This one is full of erotic moments that go from the staid and honorable to the more kinky side of BDSM and are not for the faint of heart. If the reader is looking for strong alpha male characters who are not afraid of their own sexuality, then these vampires might suit the bill. But if it's a sweet a ...more

My first dip into paranormal and boy did Love Bites deliver a “bite”! I’ve never been interested in any type of paranormal erotica, but Angela Knight has reeled me in! The novel is full of extremely erotic scenarios between a very alpha male vampires (and at times, add two more alphas!) and one extremely alpha male witch. The scenes are extremely steamy, but still have the underlying hint of at

Definitely Angela Knight writing what she does best!

Explicit BDSM scenes. Explicit 3 and 4 way scenes. Girls who do EVERYTHING and Guys that want it ALL...

If you're not interested or uncomfortable with reading raw erotic scenes with multiple partners, whips, ties and restraints and with the last book a initially unwilling female participant this book REALLY isn't for you as there is nothing vanilla about the steamy scenes. Any fan of Angela Knight's will appreciate it. I especially enjoyed revis

Wow! I loved this book and the many places it took me. This was my first taste of the Mageverse and it won’t be my last. Oath of Service was a BDSM fest woven nicely in with the fantasy world of dragons, vampires and magic. I liked the camaraderie of the characters and how they have fought to protect humans through the cent

Whoooo baby! This book is HOT! We are talking VERY hot, S*E*X*Y! The novel contains a book of Morgana le Fay, head witch in the mageverse, and her team of three vampire warriors that keep the human race safe from monsters. When Morgana screws up a mission her team, which includes knight Lord Percival of the Arthurian legend, has had enough. They carry their complaint to King Arthur, head vampire, who tells Morgana she needs to learn humility and so condemns her to servitude to Percival who has h ...more

I received a print and digital copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley and Netgalley.

Angela Knight is one of those authors you can read over and over and never get enough. Her writing never gets boring or repetitive, and her characters are always new and unique. I love her stories and her writing because no matter what she is writing she puts her full talent into her work and lets her readers know that she's invested in the tale she is weaving. Her brilliance to create worlds and rel
Single Author Anthology. Can be read as a stand-alone book, although it contains a story from the Megaverse.

The first story is a part of the Megaverse series with Morgana, Perceival, Marrok and Cador. Someone is eating human women from a nightclub in the human world, so Morgana and her team are called in. They will be thrown together in a whole new way due to a battle for the lives of two girls.

The second story is a short about Amanda and her two separate lovers. When a girl begs to be rescued f

I loved this anthology. The first story, Oath of Service, is in the Mageverse series. It goes an extra step further erotically into the realm of BDSM. Strong warning if this is not your thing. This was the longest of the three stories. The second story is "Be Careful What You Wish For". This is a cute little story that is not related to the Mageverse. Finally, the anthology finishes with "The Bloodslave". I actually thought this was the best story of all three. Even though it was short, it was i ...more

It was good to finally get to Morgana's and for her and Percival to finally get it right, not that there is anything wrong with three on one or two on one for that matter, but there is always something extra sensual of getting it right with the ONE, really did enjoy the story. As for the other tales in the anthology, I found them to be quite interesting, yet I find I much prefer the stories and characters of the Mageverse. Happy reading ...more

I normally like the slightly erotic stories that have supernatural characters from the current writers who have various mystery and horror series that are basically part of the 'cozy' genres. This one is way over the top. It was listed as a very erotic set of bondage / s&m / domination short stories. But is very more explicit and while I was not offended I found the tales of vampires / were etc just not that interesting.creatures / ...more

Different from what I expected. The first story is the longest and takes up most of the anthology. The second two were novellas. They were okay.

Full review to come.
The characters in these stories are very different than they are portrayed in the mageverse series. It's as though she had to fill them with angst and horror to make them interesting. ...more

It was just okay.... I've read other books with BDSM but, the humiliation aspect of that lifestyle is something I don't think I'll ever understand and that's okay. I just felt like there could have been so many other things that happened with Morgana and her vampire knights. I found myself frowning at the book a lot more than I expected...I didn't finish the other short stories in this anthology...I didn't want to risk reading similar stories with the other characters.

I did not expect to like this book so much. I mean, the premise is over-the-top bananas! You've got shape-shifting vampires and witches. You've got BDSM. You've got vampires in space! But Knight pulled it off. A quick, fun read, spicy and intense, with gusty, bad-ass heroines. Fun! ...more
