Sera has lived 300 years and never experienced an orgasm. Unfortunately she confides that fact to her friend, who insists on taking her to Captive Fantasy, a sex club.

Valentino, who works at Captive Fantasy, finds something very intriguing about the shy Sera and is determined to get closer to her. Neither Valentino nor Sera are quite what they appear to be. Can they overcome their differences and find a way to be together?

I really enjoyed this story. Valentino and Sera are really sweet together and make a wonderful couple. I was pleasantly surprised by this story because there were a lot of surprises concerning Valentino’s identity and made for a very unique story. Overall this was well written, had really good pacing and the story kept me interested from start to finish. The only thing I wish had been included was more background on the main characters, especially Sera, but the story still came across well without it.

“Archaic and powerful demon, Alessandro, knew never to disappoint his overlord, but Samhain night on Earth is a new experience for this red-hot guy. When a captivating scent leads him to a Halloween party, he finds Gwenny. The witch is everything he never even knew to dream of. The only problem is, he’s due back in Hell in the morning with somebody’s soul…and it looks like it may be hers.
Unable to resist Alessandro’s wicked allure, Gwenny doesn’t realize the danger she’s in until their night of passion comes to an end. If Lucifer’s demands are refused, will they both survive, or will Gwenny lose her heart and soul to her cinnamon-loving demon?”

My first jaunt into the Demon Rhelm with Ms Richards newest short story won’t be my last, this story may be short but it packs a lot into its pages. Pages that are feeled with wonderful discriptions and dialogue that flows and keeps the story moving. The two main characters are engageing and even in the short period we believe the romance that is blooming. Ms Richards has remembered that golden rule, Sex and love sceens should enhance the story not the other way around. With or with the sex this story stands on its own. Not that the love scene doesn’t heat things up to degrees that any Demon would love J. I enjoyed reading this book so much that I found myself smiling through all 40 pages.

The Wiccan Kitten by Susanne Saville

Freyja Amador, resident of Salem and friend to a ghost kitty has a huge problem. Her leering, creepy landlord has decided not only to have an exorcist over to evict her spectral cat, but he has sold the building to a developer who will tear it down.
The kitty is completely tied to the building, and the only way to save it is to engage in some sex magick. But with whom? Maybe with Shane, knight of old only recently emerged from the Otherworld. But he is under a curse that could result in disaster, and Shane turning to dust.
Ms. Saville has written an engaging tale with witty scenarios and characters who the reader (at least this reader) will fall in love with on sight. Their troubles seem impossible to overcome, but we hope, as this is a romance, that somehow all will be well in the end. But will it?
You’ll just have to read it and find out. No trouble there, since Salem is absolutely the best place to be on Halloween. And with Cliodna, the troublesome faerie around, it looks as though it will be impossible to avoid Shane turning to dust.
If you only read one wonderful Halloween story this year, make it Wiccan Kitten…I can’t even say it without giggling.

Adam has heard many tales about the seductive leader of the fairy thieves for many years and is prepared when he encounters her. However, when a falcon tries to take off with her Adam can’t help but intervene and saves her life. Although only grudgingly appreciated Adam’s assistance is rewarded in its own way because everyone knows if you capture a fairy they grant you a wish.  

This was a cute little story with some fun plot points. The author did a good job with this story. It was very well written and it’s worth a read. I only wish there was more.

Following a glimmering trail in the forest, Cavyn, a centuries old vampire, discovers a creature that he only knew through legend, a nymphomaniac. Loveday a Nymphomaniac in service to the House of Triune is forced to pay tribute to Medb on Beltane by participating in sexual revelry with any male she encounters, climaxing in Medb's name. Loveday hates having to succumb to the wills of her body during Beltane but she must to remain among her kind. Loveday enlists Cavyn to become her lover during Beltane but will he be able to get her what she truly wants, her freedom.

This was a very sexy story with some pretty dark moments. I liked the concept of this story. It was something different and the characters were well crafted. There was a little bit of plot but this story was mostly the relationship between Cavyn and Loveday, or and his nest mate Priscilla, but for that part you’ll just have to read it. Overall a very hot, intense read; I enjoyed it.

Three women’s lives hopelessly entangled, things not working out like anyone plans, complications galore. Yes, this book has it all.

Brigit’s life is complicated being one of the few female Guardians, watchers of certain vampyres. Her vampyre, Liam, is going through some kind of changes that she doesn’t know how to deal with. And he wants her for more than a Guardian. She is drawn to him, too, but it is against the rules.

Hunter works in the store Brigit owns, but that is the only normal part of her life. She learns that the rest of her life has been a lie. She isn’t “who” she thought she was, that she has lived before, that she was once a vampyre, and she was the mistress of two men. The two determined vampyre lovers have been searching for her, wanting her back with them.

Regan is a service worker to a most unusual clientele: vampire victims and werewolves. Complicating her life even more, a vampyre wants her to be his mate, and she falls in love with her lycanthropic boss.

As if all of their individual problems aren’t enough, a vampyre hunter and a crazed vampyre with a grudge come into their midst.

This is a complex story with numerous subplots that are well woven together. The characters have good depth and the reader wants to pull for each of them. Except for the villains, those you want to stake yourself and help the heroes and heroines out. Great read!

Ever since her husband purchased Rousseau Manor Saphira Morgan has spent her days observing the paintings of the faeries in the house and crafting her own versions. The faeries have provided Saphira the escape she needed after her husband’s affair. Even though he is trying to reconnect Saphira can’t separate herself from the faeries and doesn’t know if she wants to try. One night in the manor Saphira is attacked and the faeries help her escape into their realm, but what will become of her there?

Ransom Morgan has noticed the increase in the distance between him and Saphira but doesn’t know how to mend the damage. When Saphira doesn’t come home one night Ransom goes looking for her and is terrified when he sees the signs of struggle in the manor. Ransom also encounters the faeries but his greeting is not a welcome one like Saphira’s, he’s a prisoner. Surrounded by an unfamiliar world and separate from each other will Ransom and Saphira survive what the faeries have planned for them or succumb to their spell.

This story is all over the place and although the main characters are confused and lost, I didn’t really want to be while reading this story. Nothing is really known about any of the characters and only very small background pieces on the main characters are revealed. Also the author used multiple perspectives in this story, shifting from character to character but there is no real connection to any of them. The relationship(s) in this story are not really romantic and the story is mostly a sex fest between all the characters. The setting is very unique but not explained very well. I liked the concepts that this story started with but the follow through was disappointing. I don’t recommend this one.

Devil in a Red Kilt by Elysabeth Williams

“Their Happily Ever After
Deserved a Second Chance …
For more than twenty years, Evan and Evie MacDonald were the couple “meant to be.” Their marriage now in tatters, they throw one final family Halloween party to honor Evie’s recently deceased mother. But, as Evan’s hand hovers over divorce papers, the ancient Celtic secrets Evie’s mother always spoke of spring to life.
Transported in flames to thirteenth-century Scotland, Evie and Evan land on opposite sides of the feud raging between Clans MacDonald and McLeod. Dubbed the Red Devil, Evan’s skills as a leader and warrior bring him into the enemy camp—and back to Evie. Now, faced with an ancient evil they never imagined, the two must rekindle the “forever and ever” kind of love they once felt, and bargain for a bit of Fae magic to flip the hourglass right side up again—before time runs out.”
Any reader who loves time travel stories will want to pick up Ms Williams, Devil in a Red Kilt.  

The story is full of intrigue, suspense, love, and redemption. Her hero, Evan, is a man among men, honorable, strong and loving.  He is true to his wife no matter what the situation and he has temptation thrown at him regularly. Evie is harder to like, maybe it’s because we love Evan so much it’s harder to sympathize with her plight, I just wanted to reach into the book and shake her, though she is redeemed when she is thrown back in time. The historical elements are well researched and the story line over all is believable. I did have issues believing that you can be married to a man and not know him no matter what century you might find yourself in especially after you have been intimate. But if a reader can suspend their disbelief on that issue, and I believe most can, then they will be in for a great read and great ride, mixed with twists, turns, and surprises.
