Staying alive is Amelia Carter’s only goal and with Phoenix’s power of sight, she’s managed to stay one step ahead of the evil chasing her until hellhound bounty hunter Caleb Reed catches up to her in this exciting paranormal romance.

Caleb has been searching for his mate for a century and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement and steamy passion as Caleb and Amelia turn the tables on the evil that has kept her on the run. The

Not many novels are written with a Phoenix as part of the main story line and when they are I latch onto them. Out of the few they usually are male very few female with author giving them their due justice. Just because I adore this author's books went in with a open mind just in case. Amelia is on the run and thanks to her companion that within who always alerts her when danger is near. They protect each other the Phoenix and her whom Amelia has called Mel because of her best friend. Also there ...more

I liked this story and the connection of all the characters. But, at first, I felt like there must be a book before this in the story. So, I looked and , no, this is the first. I felt like I didn’t really have any background at all with characters. It was fine, it just took a little longer to feel connected to the story. I like how it ended but, the climax at the ending was a bit rushed and could have used a bit more detail. It was really fun watching the relationships and characters grow togeth ...more

Shelves: freebies
I downloaded Bounty's Flame as a free ebook from Amazon. I'm actually pretty sad about this book. The plot-- fated mates, a hellhound and phoenix, torn apart by tragedy; he continues to search for her resurrected form through the decades. The actuality--lost opportunities. Over all, the story was anticlimactic and rushed. As a reader I had no opportunity to really know these potentially wonderful protagonists. The romance and action scenes are too rushed--the defeat of the bad guy is pretty much ...more

This is a highly entertaining, action packed, emotionally thrilling romantic adventure filled with magic, mystery, danger and explosive passion.... Could not put it down, enjoyed every heart pounding twist and turn.

Amelia Carter is a strong, sassy and fierce woman battling the phoenix within to ensure she does not become evil .. Loved her. Caleb Reed is a sexy, strong and exciting hellhound bounty hunter that is excited to finally find his mate after all this time. Truly exciting and engaging j

Bounty’s Flame is a short read. I really liked the interesting take on the dynamics with the mating between Mel, Amelia, and Caleb. I think there was a good solid backstory, however the fight between the three and the Levi was too short, and uneventful. So much build up about the hate for this mob boss, to have him be weak and easily defeated was disappointing. I loved the epilogue. Loved. Overall, it was a great short read. I devoured it from cover to end in one sitting.

This was a enjoyable and interesting novella. However I would've like more background information on the other characters since they are important to the storyline. I kinda felt like we were throwing straight into the action. Overall entertaining read. I voluntarily read and review this ARC no monetary compensation was received the opinions I have expressed are my own.

I liked this book. It had a gripping storyline and loveable characters. The only issue I have is that it could have had more background to other characters that are important to the storyline. This seems to just throw you straight into the action. I would have preferred a little more build up. But other than that an amazing book

I loved this story despite not being a huge fan of phoenixs in literature. I loved the whole take on Mel, how she exists and the depth of her powers. The hell hound is finally perfect to counterbalance and the very human Amelia completes it all perfectly. Plenty of suspense and action, I found this book hard to put down. Loved the conclusion.

Overall rating: 4.3 (ku copy)

This author wasted no time jumping into action from the get go! An hot steamy teasing in chapter one is by far quite the attention getter! Absolutely love this authors ability to give you just enough details to quickly set these characters into motion through this fast paced tale. A truly great quick morning read!

Bounty's Flame was a short read but it was interesting and action packed. It sucks you in from the first page to the last. I do wish there was a little more character building, but overall for the length of the book it's worth the read.

Amelia and Mel were on the run Amelia had to keep Mel safe. Caleb had been searching for his mate for years. Levi wanted him to a do a job he did not want to do but he was pushed into it. The super natural aspects of each person made this book wonderful and intriguing I loved it

Very enjoyable story, it was a unique take on mates. I love the Phoenix, it’s one of my favorite mythical creatures, so it was a bonus that our MC is host to one! Amelia/Mel and Caleb’s story was a quick pleasant read with an HEA! Highly recommend their story!

A fast read that draws a Phoenix and her host into the arms of her mate, a shape shifting hellhound who’s been hired to kidnap her. Together, they learn that together they are stronger than apart and that their HEA is just around the corner.

This is a short story packed with action. Amelia is host to Mel, a Phoenix. Her erotic dreams connect her to Caleb who is a shapeshifting hellhound. He is also Mel's mate. What a wild ride this story takes you on. I enjoyed it start to finish and kinda wish it were longer.

Good quick read

Bounty's Flame is a good read that can be finished in around an hour. The story is interesting, and the characters complex for sick a quick read. I feel like the book could have been amazing with a little more development and detail.

Bounty's Flame

The story is about Amelia and her bond with the Phoenix that lives inside her, running from one man wanting to use her powers and another wanting to claim her body and soul Amelia runs and keeps running until she finally gets caught.

While a very quick read for me I loved that the pace wasn't to fast, I thought the characters were well defined and the magic in the story explained well and not overly done. The

Wicked and Hot enough to char a demon!

I really enjoyed this short and wicked tale!! As always, Lia makes her paranormal stories easy to follow and the story plays out like a movie in my mind. From sex dreams to hellhounds, this book has it all! And now a bit about the story...

Amelia and Mel have been friends forever, but only on the run in the same body for the last year. Can bounty hunter Caleb catch them or will Amelia's use of Mel's flames burn him before he can try?

Caleb is quite the sexy man, "he closed the gap between them, one corner of his mouth raised in a half-smile. “Could I seduce you into staying home?” Caleb is a good man and I loved him, "he laughed softly, hearing the Phoenix’s tone in her words. “I know, love. I look forward to the makeup sex, though.” I really loved this book it entertained me and kept me interested.
Erzabet Bishop
This is a kick butt novella about a Phoenix, her host Amelia and her mate, Caleb. Hunting demons, hawt dreams and between the covers scenes and a sassy connection all play a part in making this addition to the Wicked line a sassy and fun read. I loved the way this author crafted her story of the Phoenix and the mate potential with Caleb. Great read!

*** I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

A quick, sexy read with a cheeky surprise. Amelia and Caleb were smoking hot together and the Phoenix element was cool. A very enjoyable read if you're looking for something to help you pass a nice fall night by the fire. The sex will burn you up. This gets a recommendation from me!
