“She’d never imagined falling in love with two men…the idea seemed not only plausible but necessary.”

Erin Monroe is tired of men who are married, gay, or brainless boobs. She just wants time by herself; learn to live as a happy single woman. Never would she have imagined falling in love with two men…two very special men.

Nick Foster and Landon Kay are unique in their pride of lion shapeshifters. They are best friends and both dominants. As such they are destined to share the same mate, a human woman, who will bear their children or their line will die out. But when they find her, they have to prove that not only can they both make exquisite love to her at the same time, but also they are the men destined to be her mates.

Primal Instinct is seriously primal, seriously hot. You’ll need a fan, a cool drink, and time to sit and just enjoy the short read.

Sometimes dreams can come true. Such a nice thought, but in this story they did.

Jinsu had been a favored emperor’s guard on his world of Torottu until he started having visions of another man, in another place. Visions are considered a sign of insanity and yet he is desperate to leave his world. He must find this man he believes is bound to him in some way.

Tristan had created his perfect mate as a cover art character for a friend’s novel. He becomes haunted by dreams of the man he’d created. He begins to worry about his sanity; longing for this dream man he has named Jinsu. Then Jinsu shows up where he works one day and both of their lives change forever.

This is a very short story, but the characters are fairly well developed. The conflicts, based upon their different worlds and beliefs, are believable. The sex is hot.

Jui Fabrice, successful executive, is traveling on the European continent when she encounters Wade Kairos. The handsome stranger attracts her attention immediately, although she is already contemplating a relationship with a coworker who her father, and employer, highly approves of. Although Wade sends mixed messages, neither can forget the other. But Wade can’t have a relationship with a human—for this vampire the penalty would be death.

Ms. Church writes an exciting tale of romance on two continents. Her characters move and dance around each other in an appealing dance that will have the reader wondering how the story can possibly end. Her vampires are definitely not the kinder, gentler blood drinkers that are in many books these days. Wade is a creature of passion and excitement and, yes, some violence. Jui is a woman of the world, not a naïve shrinking violet, and when they get together the sparks fly.

Fans of Ms. Church’s Allaire books will want to snap this book up right away and plan to curl up and enjoy it. I made the mistake of starting it when I had work to do…anyway, good book and the work got done…eventually. I only hope there will be a sequel because I miss Wade and Jui already.

When Brent is hired at the travel office he finds himself the only male and the object of everyone’s desire. That is except for Jodi and that is exactly what he wants until he has to work with her. Will Jodi and Brent find a happy ever after or are they both to hurt by their pasts to try again?

This was a sweet romantic story. I enjoyed Jodi, she is a strong woman. Brent is a warm and loving man. And, the two are a wonderful couple. Watching them begin to have feelings towards each other was a nice read. As both Jodi and Brent try to deal with their pasts and their feelings about each other, they must also help others deal with their problems. It was also nice to read about all the other characters in the story as well. From the other women in the office to Gramps, each one has their own story to tell.

Brent’s Grandfather is a wonderful man who endears himself to the reader. Seeing each character grow and learn about themselves’ makes this book a nice read. The bond that the women have was a nice touch. They stand by each other no matter what.

What begins as a simple bet on girl’s night out turns into something much more in the end. Celine Chatillon does a good job in pulling the reader into the story. With characters full of emotion and a well-written plot this book should not be missed.

If you want to read something very short, something hot, and something fun, then this story is for you.

Nadia has just ended an engagement to a man too attached to his mommy. She likes men, but she’s decided to take a break from them for the moment. Elisheba, her friend who has seen her through this breakup, is bisexual and has been attracted to Nadia for a while. She suggests trying something different to Nadia, to get her mind off the breakup. And something that will give both of them great pleasure. Why not?

The story is very short, the characters barely developed, and there isn’t really much conflict. But…so what! Sometimes you just need a good, hot, quick read.

All vampires hunger for blood, but for Mika the pleasures of the flesh are as nourishing as blood. Since the start of her unlife, she has indulged her need for carnal satiation. After the death of her mater-sire, she began to comprehend the complexities of the political struggles embroiling the clans of Haven, and now that knowledge fascinates her. While deep with the slums controlled by Clan Corbius, Mika meets a handsome and dangerous exile who is as renowned for his fighting skills as his ability to seduce. Hail McMahon is as sexy as he is unpredictable, and with his aid, Mika is able to escape from the territory of Clan Corbius after a mysterious attack by a mob of crazed vampires.

The world building in this book was absolutely fantastic but also its downfall. The first half of the book repeatedly gets bogged down with intricate details and explanations. So much so, a less determined reader may give up. However, I implore you, stick it out and the payoff is wonderful. I really got a good sense of the characters in the latter half of the novel more than I did the first half. Well worth the read if you're a determined reader such as myself. The conclusion felt a little rushed, however, I understand this is the proposed first book in a series. I eagerly await the next book.

Haley and her IM friends have all made a pact to do the same spell and summon a demon. Haley gets more than she bargained for with her demon. Will love conquer all or will Haley say goodbye to her demon?

This short story was a hot quick read that packs a punch. I was drawn in right from the start. I loved Haley and her spirit. No matter what happens she fights for herself. She is a strong and independent woman. I enjoyed seeing the love and sweetness if only in flashes that come out in Taron. The connection that the two made was a wonderful read. I only wish that is was a longer read.

Leila Brown does a good job with bringing the reader into the wondrous world and keeping you entertained all the way through to the end. Well written and definitely hot this book should not be missed.
