I've read several books written by Leilani Love; she has done a great job at writing a good book; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of books her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Warrick's Hope by Leilani Love is the fifth book in The Dragon Ruby series. I loved this read! This is an amazing series. From the first page in the first book (Voilca's Dragon), Leilani Love weaves a epic tale of love, lust, betrayal and (some) redemption. This action packed series is filled with wolves, dragons, vampires, witches and so much emotion that you can't help becoming addicted. Warrick's Hope is sweet and sexy (Mature Readers Only Please), sad and, in so ...more

Book four in the Dragon Ruby series brings Warrick and Hope's story. They have a hot and steamy chemistry but have many obstacles to overcome before they can find their HEA. The author does a great job bringing a strong cast of supporting characters and weaves a steamy and action packed story showing the power of love. She brings the story to life with her descriptive writing and vividly detailed scenes. It's told in the dual POV which I love as it gives both their thoughts,feelings and the dept ...more

I tell myself I’m done reading about wolf and dragon shifters ... turns out, Leilani Love can write about them, throw in witches and vampires, and I’m SO there! I’ve loved every book in this series. I’m sucked in immediately by the likable characters, the love story, pack politics and rivalries. Ms. Love’s protagonists are altruistic and smokin’ hot, swoon-worthy. The villains are conniving and evil. Warrick is battling inner demons from 40 years of torture and captivity, but he’s back with Hope ...more

Leilani Love wrote an incredible book from cover to cover. This book could be read as a standalone, but if you want more back story and to find out how they got to this point, it would be best to read the series in order from the beginning.

Hope believes that Warrick was guilty of doing everything she thought he did only to realize that it was Warrick's twin brother Gabriel. Gabriel took Warrick captive and tortured him for 40 years. When he is rescued, they try to move past the events that happ

This is my favourite book of the series so far. Following on from the truth about Warrick being revealed in the previous book this story covers his recovery and the development of the relationship between Warrick and Hope. A beautiful story that still had lots of action, building a future for the 2 packs, love and humour. There was still an underlying mystery to solve concerning Hope and Damien's mother which I look forward to reading in a future book. Also looking forward to more about the Vamp ...more

Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well.
I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers, just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. You'll thank me later!

The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting. Add in drama and passion and you have a good read.

Warrick has been held captive and tortured constantly by his evil twin brother for 40 years, not even allowed to shift into his wolf. He has held out so long to protect his mate, Hope. His sadistic twin brother was responsible for killing their parents and Hope’s parents, then taking over Warrick’s pack.

Thinking Warrick had betrayed her and the pack, Hope hid herself. But when she finds Warrick imprisoned, broken, beaten, and barely alive, she knows she had made a mistake in judging him as she

Finally Warrick is back with the pack and his mate. They are rebuilding the town to house the pack and start over. Things still aren't easy for Warrick and Hope, though. Warrick has a lot of misplaced guilt over the abuse his twin put the pack through and it is taking awhile for 40 years worth of torture to be healed. Hope wants so much for things to go well for the two of them, but Warrick is holding back. I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting for Gabriel to appear. When they get to a ...more

After undergoing years of dreams and nightmares both Hope and Warrick are finally re-united and attempt to forge their new relationship together, which they do with multiple erotic and vividly described mating sex actions between them, an ...more

An absorbing read that hooked me from the first page! This is Warrick and Hope's story. Warrick is now free of his evil brother, but is having a hard time believing that he deserves Hope as his mate. Will they complete their mating bond? Read and find out for yourself. The plot is gripping and well structured, the characters are well developed and the storyline grabbed my attention from the first few pages. It's a definite must read!

After decades of captivity by his evil twin brother, Gabriel, Warrick is free. Hope is his mate, & Warrick doesn't think he deserves her. He tries to keep her at a distance as Gabriel has threatened both of them if they ever complete the mating bond. Eventually, they complete their bond. Hope is deceived by someone she thought was a friend, & it becomes a race for Warrick to save her.

I enjoyed the story, but I would have liked to have had a bit more of Hope's backstory. There were snippets of it
