Who knew one small mistake—that just happened to go viral—would result in being exiled from my family and shunned by my coven?

Not me. Yet here I am, in nowhere, Alaska, armed only with a laptop and my Pomeranian.

But even witch magic can’t prepare a girl for the freezing temperatures, murderous moose, or the abundance of hot men.

The author spends an inordinate amount of time defining the female protagonist as incompetent. I cannot fathom what motivates a female author writing a book that is supposedly targeting female readers, to dedicated herself to the concept that multiple men become obsessed with a woman who is chronically foolish and totally irresponsible. Skye thinks Anchorage is the only habited place in the entire state of Alaska and it didn’t occur to her to ask where her job was located. She onl

I instantly needed this book the moment I read Alaska, a technologically adept witch, and three gorgeous sea dragons.
It did not disappoint.
Ashwood's writing is light and humorous, and the story keeps up a good pace. I loved her guys. Aiden, the brooding alpha and head of the clan, Jack, the friendly and so-hot sweetheart, and Ty, the swooniest with his sad history. The location is just stunning. I could feel the fresh cool air.
I really can't wait to read the next instalment.

First of all, the theme is fantasy romance (erotic) and if you don't know what reverse harem is - look it up for reference to the kind of romantic entanglements you'll be reading about 😋 This is the 1st book in a trilogy.
This story has some very steamy scenes that are rated R.
I am enjoying the main character - Skye, with her witch magic, who is needing some help as she is being shunned by her coven. She is hired by Aiden - head of the village - for her tech skills, and is picked up by Jack to

Tempted. Book 1 of the Sea Dragons of Amber Bay by Zoe Ashwood.
Damn! Never thought I’d be tempted (haha pun intended) into reading a book about dragons. BUT I read the blurb and was sucked in from the first page. The characters and plot are going to destroy you in a steamy way! Trust me, you’ll want to jump in on this series and follow along with Skye, Ty, Jack and Aiden!

This book should come with a warning on the front. Like beware; will get you hooked from the start, will make you read until morning.

When I read the blurb, I was immediately attracted to the book. Come on, sea dragons, witches, stunning Alaska, and on top of this a Pomeranian. Seriously, how cool can a book get? Absolutely loved it.

This book has M/F, M/F/M, and some M/M action. The scenes are hot and flow very naturally in the story. The author has taken time for the reader to discover and und

So, don’t judge me, but I do judge a book by it’s cover. This one I wanted to read from the minute I saw the cover: it’s interesting, vibrant, and the little details all over it make it quite enticing. And then I heard there were Sea Dragons and I was sold. Give me a mythological creature and I’m a happy girl!

My second favourite thing when I offer judgement is whether the story makes me feel as good as looking at the cover does. In this instance I was not disappointed. I loved that Skye had some

This was a read that had me going to read a few chapters and the next thing I knew I was ending on a cliffhanger and it was 2 in the morning and I was screaming inside wanting to know what was going to happen next. I enjoyed the work. The multiple views allowed me inside each of the characters and get an idea of how each was dealing with the rising attraction.

I truly enjoyed this first book from Zoe Ashwood's new series Sea Dragons of Amber Bay. I believe a story is only as powerful as its characters and Skye, Jack, Ty and Aiden leaped from the page. I love stories where the hero and heroine are immediately drawn to each other, but have to overcome their own fears in addition to external obstacles. If you enjoy romances that are sizzling, magical, mysterious and heartfelt, I highly recommend this book. Can't wait for the next book.

Things blow up back home and she ends up in Alaska with a lot of bad baggage in her life. Three sea dragons, also with a lot of baggage, get together with her and the explosions begin. There are a lot of funny periods in the book, to keep it lighter and make you laugh out loud. There are also suspenseful moments that keep you glued to your seat. The characters and their backstories are fantastic and the locale is so great. Can not wait to read some more from this author..

Wow! I love Tempted. This book is incredible and captured my attention right from the beginning with fantastic characters and an interesting plot. Full of steamy hot scenes. I love the characters and I am intrigued to see where this series leads. The ending is an incredible cliffhanger that is both satisfying and leaves you excited to read the next book. This is a wonderful new series. I highly recommend this book.

Definitely a unique story!

Witches, sea dragons, and threats of bears oh my.
I really enjoyed the beginning of this series.

This book has twist, turns, sad emotions, steamy scenes, and comical moments.

Skye is a witch with a twisted past, of betrayal, rejection, and a desperate need of acceptance and love.
Ty, Aiden, and Jack are sea dragons that didn’t know they were missing anything in their remote Alaskan life.
Putting these two species that have centuries of dark secrets, animosity, and hate toge

Great start to a series

This is the first book in a new series and is a really great start.

Skye gets in trouble and takes a job that requires her to go to Alaska. Her and her adorable dog set off for the wilderness. She meets three guys, all best friends, there while she is working. Their relationship build throughout this book and is really well done.

I really enjoyed the world built here. The books ends on a small cliffhanger and I can’t wait for the next one!

This book kick of a new series in a great way we meet Skye who is cast out of her clan, and takes a job in Alaska.
When there she meet Jack, Ty and her new boss Aidan. We see Skye, Jake and Ty grow closer to some steamy moments and also we get to see Aidans struggle to keep away from her too but to also try and help her.
With lots of twists we see the book end on a crazy cliffhanger really leaving you wanting more.
Skye has accepted a new job in Alaska to escape some family issues, but she ends up with more than she bargained for. I like Skye - she’s kind of awkward, smart, and is just doing her best life. It does end on a cliffhanger, but thankfully the series is complete and I can just go download book 2 :)

I really liked this reading.
Skye is a witch who does not have it easy to start a new life once she is disowned by her family because she does not have valuable magic.
Wanting to start over, she accepts a job in Alaska without knowing that her secret is not safe and that love is around her.
This adventure continues and she promises.

Good build, medium burn

I really enjoyed the start of this story. Like many serials, it ends on a cliff hanger but there was enough resolution for satisfaction. I look forward to the remaining books and exploring other stories by this author.

Skye Jones was involved in an incident that went viral and now she’s exiled from her coven and shunned by her family. Well, except for her sister Alice. When Skye gets a job offer she jumps at the chance, flying all the way to a remote village in Alaska. Maybe here she can heal the hurts, make some money, and gain new friends. She had no idea she would be falling into a ménage with two nommy men.

Different PNR

I enjoyed this book. I have been having problems finding books that I will want to finish. I could not put this one down. I liked that it did not follow any of the major tropes and there was no bullying. I also have never read about sea dragons so that was a very fun change. Excited to start the next one.

So I’ve been craving a good RH book for a while and have started a few but I haven’t been hooked by any over the past few months. I won a copy of this from the author on a Facebook comp and freaking hell its had me hooked! This book is SMOKING hot! I love the main character Skye, she has been rejected from a witch clan and is still so unaware of who she is and how her powers work. She meets Ty and Jack who are sea dragons and just so accepting of her, and are all on board f

More steamy shifter goodness from the very talented Zoe Ashwood! These sexy, sensitive sea dragons stole my heart straight away. Reverse harem is not my thing, but, as always, Zoe writes fantasy/PNR with enough realism to pull me into the world and right along with the characters. I loved the journey Skye and her two men, Jack and Ty, went on together. And Aiden? God, when that alpha finally gives in to what he wants (Skye), it is going to be SO satisfying! The Alaska setting is charming, Skye i ...more

3.5 rounded up

This is a different take on the RH genre, playing with sea dragons this time - though this little witch doesn’t know that just yet. It’s a fast burn, but features only two of the obvious guys, though a third is in the wings. There’s a touch of deception and plenty of secrets, but it’s interesting, if a bit fast. First person, multiple POV, Cliffhanger
