Dive into Hunger, a paranormal romance anthology by New York Times bestselling author Eve Langlais, Kate Douglas, and A.C. Arthur!
A brand new, never before published novella!
In The Alpha’s Mate, villains aren’t supposed to rescue damsels, and pack alphas are known to have complete control of their wolf. But when Fabian saves a certain lady from drowning, everything he knows gets tossed away and only one thing becomes clear: she’s his mate—and someone wants to kill her. Hell no. Protecting her, though, is only part of his problem. He also has to convince her she belongs to him. In her words, “Hell no.”
When she flees, little does she realize this wolf loves to chase. And when he catches the woman he wants? She’ll become the Alpha’s Mate.
Previously published in the 2-in-1 e-original Claimed by the Mate Volume 3 and in print for the first time!
In Dangerous Passions, finding a mate shouldn’t be all that difficult for a sexy werewolf on the prowl. Modern women want romance and seduction, and Feral Passions Resort has served that purpose for providing both for the men of the Trinity Alps pack. Only two are still unmated—alpha leader Traker Jakes and his lieutenant Evan Dark—but danger stalks the women they’ve chosen. Danger that threatens everyone in the pack at Feral Passions.
In Bound to the Wolf, Marena Panos is an attorney with a dark secret that follows her into the mountains and into the bed of a Phelan Sava, a lycan whose strength and shared penchant for pleasure/pain will eventually own her body and soul.

Hunger was three books of unadulterated perusing delight. Every story brought something other than what’s expected. For example, The Alpa’s Mate was diverting. Eve Langlais enlivened these two characters that the association between them was valid and didn’t appear to be constrained. The story was impeccable, and the consummation was epic. While alternate stories have activities that will have you excited until the very end. Along these lines, I will prescribe this title to in any reader who’s into hot shifter romance.

Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Dagger Ixur is on the run for his life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isn’t in him. He will fight to the bitter end. A resolve that is sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.

Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating those born to nobility. After all, it was a royal house that drove her entire species into virtual extinction. As a rare Andarion Fyreblood, she is sworn to end the existence of any royal she finds. But when Dagger saves her son’s life, she is torn between her people and a debt that can never be repaid.

Yet worse than Dagger’s family that’s still out to end hers, are the League assassins after him who will stop at nothing to claim the lives of her Tavali family. The only hope she has to save them all is to put their future and her faith into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother personally extinguished Ushara’s legendary lineage. But how can she ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw whose very name is synonymous with betrayal?

I am absolutely infatuated with Sherrilyn Kenyon League series. With this series, you will wind up cheering for when the scalawag/villainess at long last gets their comeuppance. You will wind up crying when an adored character experiences trouble times. Well in Born of Legend I ended up experiencing various feelings.

It’s not very frequently that I have feelings of regret for the way I felt about a character. But after reading this book, I would do anything to take back what I thought and said about Jullien.

On the off chance that you read the other books in this series, you will realize what I mean. They said you ought to never judge a book by its cover, don’t pass judgment on a man unless you have strolled a mile in their shoes. I don’t think I could have overcome everything Jullien had to, in order to survive. I found myself wanting to snatch and hold him tight. But again, I found myself crying, anytime Ushara or some other character held him.

In my opinion, this is the best book in the series to date. My recommendation…you should read The League: Nemesis Rising from the beginning. I will also recommend this book for any booklover who likes their men broken, however, who is adequately capable of overcoming any struggles that the world may toss his way.

Reverend “Rev” Walker, expected some backlash after he foiled The Council’s attempts to overthrow the Blood Ravager Biker Gang. What he hadn’t expected was to wake up in the last place he ever wanted to see again—a dank cell of The Council’s Siberian dungeon. Drained and chained, he faces certain death if he can’t escape from the hellish prison. Now, his only means of escape depends on him accepting help from a fellow prisoner, a woman whose very existence is a lie and the only one capable of awakening Rev’s long-dormant heart.

Claire Deveraux is Dygarian, a race of shadow-shifters who have been slandered and hunted to extinction by The Council. But Claire has used her years of enslavement well, reading her captors’ secret texts and hearing their whispered secrets. Now, after being locked up for a crime she didn’t commit, she plans to use her knowledge of the dungeon’s maze-like interior to gain her freedom, or die trying. Then a new prisoner arrives, a man Claire has dreamed of and knows in her heart is her destined mate, if only she can break through his walls.

On the run and threatened from all sides, will Rev and Claire learn to trust each other and their growing feelings for one another before it’s too late?

Blood Vowed is the 3rd book in Traci Douglass’ Blood Ravagers series. Before this book debut, I advise you to read Blood Bound & Blood Freed to get the full history on this club of misfits.
Keeping a secret from the one that you claim to be falling in love with is never a good idea, even if that secret will save them from hurting even further.
Reverend “Rev” Walker will learn this soon enough. After the last book, we find that not everything is going well with Rev. After letting himself be captured he is held in a dank cell the last place he wanted to be or see again. But that is not all, he finds himself not the only one that the Council has deemed fit to be held in their cell far away from other beings.
Claire Deveraux the last of the Dygarian a race of shadow-shifter wants revenge against the council and the person who slaughter her entire family. But before she could take revenge, she must escape from captivity. In order to do so, she must team up with the other prison.
Blood Vowed is the best of this series by far. It was a far more intriguing story and full of suspense than its predecessors. If you read the others in this series you will see what I mean. Rev and Clair were more engaging as a couple. They just click better for me faster than the twin’s story line.
The banter between Rev and Claire was hilarious and the chemistry was golden. The only disappointing thing about the book was the battle. But then again that is just my opinion. But I would certainly recommend this book, heck the entire series for the gripping storyline alone.

A Cascadia Wolves novella

Megan Warden, Seattle’s devoted Enforcer of the Cascadia pack, knows that she has a mate. Somewhere. She’s just never found him. Then there he is at her cousin’s wedding. Megan isn’t just drawn to the werewolf’s masculine, head-spinning scent – she’s consumed by it. He seems so perfect, there has to be a catch…

With a successful practice in Las Vegas, Dr. Shane Rosario has lived outside the pack since he was born. Raised to hide his wolf in shame, he always assumed he’d marry a human.

Until Megan. Shane thrills to the ease with which she wears her wolf, and he craves ever inch of her. But the idea of forever could be impossible. He’s not willing to abandon his human life – even for a mate.

Something’s got to give. Because this time, even destiny may not be enough to bind them.

Lauren Dane didn’t waste any time in getting directly into the action. In Bonded Pair, Megan had to put up with a lot, traveling with her family to a wedding, to meeting her mate who had serious issues.
Shane was a successful doctor, who by right was a werewolf. Growing up he had to hide what he was to appease his mother. Not knowing what he was missing until he met his mate. But even meeting his mate didn’t solve years of abuse by his mother. Yes, Shane had mommy issues. If he can’t stop deny who and what he is, he will lose the best thing that ever happened to him.
Bonded Pair was fast passed and didn’t skimp on the romance. It had a strong character development to the point that you could relate to the struggle these two had to go through to be together.

Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown, New Orleans. He’s there with three of his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. One tantalizing scent captures Remy’s senses, forcing him to follow until he is face to face with Triana Bellamy—his beautiful high school crush.

After reconnecting, Remy and Triana are close—very. Remy struggles to keep things casual. Ever since his partner—and first love—was killed on the job, he’s kept women at a distance.

But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy’s protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self…and hope Triana accepts him.

Second chance at love, and renewing old friendships. Wolf Hunt tells the story of Remy Boudreaux another Alpha of the Dallas SWAT team. Remy and his fellow SWAT team are in New Orleans on assistance training assignment. One tantalizing scent latter Remy is on a spiral like none other. But after a mission went wrong and his lover was killed, Remy wanted nothing to do with love. But, Remy has no choice when he found “The One” person who would make his life complete.
Wolf Hunt was okay, right on par with all the other titles in this series. Only a slight difference there are some people who know that werewolves exist and will stop at nothing to become one. Wolf Hunt is a good action adventure/Paranormal romance. This was a very mild romance compare to her other titles in this series. So, I guess that is another slight difference. But all in all, a great sixth book.

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers Book 2)

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers, #2)Blood Freed by Traci Douglass

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Blood Ravagers #2

Publication Date: January 19, 2017

Characters: Dex, Elizabeth “Liz”


Elizabeth “Liz” Frost has always been the wild one. But now, with a niece or nephew on the way and her promise to become half of the new psychic Oracle team for the Blood Ravagers Biker Gang, she’s ready to turn over a new leaf. And what better way to start than by answering the call when gang leader Dante needs help? Her mission: to travel cross-country to get the information the gang needs to complete the Oracle Binding Ceremony. Should be easy, right? Except for the incredibly tempting lone-wolf shifter named Dex who’ll be her riding partner and protector on the journey.

Dexter “Dex” MacCallahan is tasked with guarding Liz Frost, one of the gang’s beautiful and bewildering new psychics. Dex can’t refuse the mission, but there’s one small problem. The time of his Rut is approaching, a rare occurrence where male wolf-shifters must physically bond with their chosen mate or face certain insanity and death. It could cost him not only the new life he’s built, but also his battered, scarred heart.

Together, Dex and Liz must search for the information they need before his old nemesis and a rival gang annihilates all they hold dear. But when the simmering chemistry between them boils over into searing hot passion, will they risk losing their hearts to save the ones they love?

If you haven’t read the first book in the Blood Bound series I advise you stop right here and read Blood Bound first. Blood Freed continues the saga. But in this story, we have Elizabeth who is the other half of Anna. But whereas Anna was the more reliable twin, Liz was the flighty one.

But where is the fun if you can’t be different. Whereas the first title of this series had more drama. Blood Freed is more action packed and full of sexual tension as the two main characters of Dex and Liz story unfolds. This story had a hidden meaning a moral if you must call it. That you can accomplish just about anything if you just believe in yourself.
I will recommend this story to all paranormal enthusiast.

First in a chilling new paranormal romantic suspense series from award-winning author Abbie Roads

He’s found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

I was totally shocked by this book. If this book wasn’t categorized as a romance I would have sworn I was reading a thriller and a dark one at that.

It was the cover that lured me in. But after reading this bone-chilling, paranormal suspense thriller. Yes, I said a paranormal suspense thriller. Abbie Roads has put together one energetic book that would start her new series Fatal Truth on a high note.

Cain Killion knew that he might be one step away from being a serial killer just like his father. His only saving grace is he uses his gift with blood to take the edge off. Until one crime scene became all too familiar. With a haunting symbol linking the crime to his past and only one person would know what it means.

Some say that a person could take a lot before they go mentally insane. And what Mercy Ledger went through…witnessing her family being murder by the hands of Cai’s father should have done it. But Mercy was a resilient person. But when Cain and Mercy past comes back to haunt them will it kill them or drive both over the deep end.

I’ve read only two other books by Abbie Road and those where her Fatal Dreams Series, I must say that Saving Mercy tops either one of those. The plotline flows flawlessly without missing a beat.

I would recommend this book, it certainly had it all. I wouldn’t recommend it as a light reading material before bed.
