Possess Me by R. G. Alexander
Paranormal Romance- Aug. 3, 2010
4 stars

Possess Me is a romance that lovers of erotic and the paranormal will definitely enjoy! It is a 3 story anthology that starts out in New Orleans. Where a legend about a sexual voodoo spirit who grants women’s darkest fantasies and wishes comes to life!

Rosseau, a quiet handsome cafe owner, is not exactly himself. Possessed by the sexual voodoo spirit, he tried to stay from Allegra, a woman whom he has a crush on. But, the spiri

I really enjoyed this book. At first I was kinda wondering how cheesy this would be with a character named "Bone Daddy", I mean come on , right? But yeah it wasn't cheesy at all. In fact came to enjoy Bone Daddy a lot.

There are three short stories, but it felt like one book. One story ran into the next because it was about the friends. They were in each other stories and so you found out what was happening to them even when their HEA was over. I was thrilled that Bone Daddy's story was last. I

Possess Me is a book written in three parts. While the stories follow the same story arc, each short story follows a different couple and their happily-ever-afters. I absolutely loved this idea! I thought it was unique and the fact that Alexander sets it in New Orleans makes me love it that much more! Each story is so culturally rich that I wished I could head on over to experience the magic for myself!

“Release Me”
The first story is Rousseau and Allegra’s story. What

Kept hearing about Bone Daddy on the Smutketeers Yahoo group until I had to buy the book. It's set in New Orleans and my husband and I cooked down there for a couple of years - another draw. I was thoroughly entertained by these stories, and I'm still enjoying thinking about the characters. Best line: "Bone Daddy unchained." GROWR! You want to read it now too, don't you? ...more

I liked it. The best thing about it, was that for once, facts about vaudun were correct! Very refreshing.

Possess Me, the debut novel by RG Alexander for Berkley Heat, is every bit as sensual and captivating as its sexy cover art. Set in magical New Orleans, an erotic voodoo spirit known as Bone Daddy is consumed with making every sexual fantasy a reality.

Let me begin by saying I am an accomplished romance reader if I do say so myself. Vampires, demons, fairies, time-traveling Scottish lords…I’ve read about them all but I am sure I’ve never come across a sexy voodoo spirit before. This ability to w
I started this book last night and said to my hubby, "not sure about this one...I mean Bone Daddy...really", man was I WRONG! This collection of three stories bringing together three couples was wonderful.

Release Me - The story of Allegra and Rosseau. I loved the story of Rosseau's possession by the Loa and how Allegra works hard to win Rosseau back from his possession and still finds a space in her heart for Bone Daddy.

Every once in awhile I will find a new-to-me author and I will read their work and think to myself "OMG! Where have I been that I am only just now discovering them!". RG Alexander is one of those authors for me!! But I know why I wouldn't have looked before because when something says paranormal as the genre I don't usually gravitate that way... MAN have I been missing out!! I discovered her work in the 8 bk combo Midnight Ink and loved her story there! and I HAD to find out more about Bone Dadd ...more

I'm embarrassed to admit that this sat on my shelf unopened for um... months. That was clearly a huge mistake.

I finally cracked this open and loved RG's anthology--it's three connected stories set in New Orleans, about a few key adventures of a Loa--a voodoo spirit--known as Bone Daddy. He is a special spirit, a sexual healing spirit, if you will.

RG does a remarkable job with these stories--the characters are vivid and captivating, and the plots engrossing. And their emotional and physical c

This book was freaking fantastic. Though it is an anthology, the stories were so seamlessly woven together, it really could have been one book. I don't think I've read this type of mythology before and I love the originality. I also loved that there is a lot of multiculturalism in this book but the author doesn't get hung up on race at all, which is particularly lovely. Instead, she lets you get lost in the characters, what they feel and what they think about their lives and one another. Very we ...more

Possess Me by R. G. Alexander is a compilation of three steamy stories surrounding Bone Daddy, a sexual voodoo spirit with a flair for matchmaking. It was one of the most engaging, surreal, explicit novels I’ve ever read. New Orleans is an actual entity in each tale, coming alive with each sentence and making me yearn for a piece of the Crescent City.

i loved this book. i loved how each story in the book is connected to each other... however the reason it does not get 5 stars is because i feel the plot of the stories moves to fast... i would have loved to have little more development in part of the story outside the romance, still over all great supernatural romance read

Three erotic novellas in one book. Starts out in New Orleans. Where a legend about a sexual voodoo spirit who grants women their darkest fantasies and wishes comes to life! These three linked stories are sexy and sultry, and have a taste of New Orleans. This book and its characters are utterly charming-especially Bone Daddy.

These books make you want to head to New Orleans dabble in voodoo and find a loa for yourself! But what I love about R.G.'s stories the most is (besides all steamy parts :) it's a true romance and there's a connection you feel with the characters.

As this is a collection of three interconnected short stories, all centered around the Loa Bone Daddy, I'll review each story separately first.

"Release Me"

This is our first taste of Bone Daddy, the Loa (a voodoo spirit) and all the games he so likes to play. For all his sexuality and highly suggestive banter, he isn't such a bad sort. Wanton, mischievous and determined, but that's just the nature of the Loa (or at least this Loa of Sex). This is by far the hottest of the three stories; Bone Dadd

I won a copy of this from R.G. herself.

Things I liked:
I enjoyed this story. The voodoo elements were well-integrated and I learned a lot about the culture/religion around voodoo.

I love reading stories set in New Orleans. I want so much to go there and haven't been, and this story felt like it was really set there.

I liked the three stories, how they were connected and how the character Bone Daddy got his HEA. *happy sigh*

Things I didn't like:
There are three connected stories in this book. The s

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it was a choice of a book club and not one I would usually get. I found myself engrossed in the 3 stories, the book is written as one with 3 short ones that intertwine enough to call it one book. You have to love BD. :)

Interesting take on a paranormal erotic romance. Set in New Orleans, it relies heavily on voodoo mysticism. The story is original and flows well. The conclusion ends well and makes sense. It also leaves you hungry for more stories on the other characters.

I truly fell in love with all the characters in this book. Each one had there own role to play and were all connected. Within all the hot steaming erotic toe curling sex ;) I fell in love with Bone Daddy. I wish I could have more of him, but I'm just greedy that way. ...more

“Bone Daddy.
That's what they called him. A walking talking well-hung pleasure factory who, with a few easy orgasms, could bring you whatever your heart desired. Your boyfriend would propose, your boss would give you a raise. Rumor had it he could heal your scars, inside and out. If you satisfied his lust.”
