REVIEW
I enjoyed the previous 2 books in this series but this one well it is now my new favorite.
We finally get up close and personal with the Vampire in Eion's Dungeon. You remember him right?
Victor and Eion are good friends so him being down there is for his own good.

One moment he is sitting all alone in the cage he has called home for a bit and the next he is falling head over fang for a pink haired bouncy beauty. Trixie.

Trixie is the towns dog catcher and she has to make a stop at the castle owned by the dragons.

Trixie is hilarious, full of life until she isn't.
Grab your copy and get reading...

This is a sexy, cute romcom.

Caldwell is into art, old homes, architeture and what opens the door to the home that he is there to bid on.

Daphne is into art, and fell inlove with the old home she got for next to nothing however it needs to be restored to it's original glory.
The man who has come to check things out is not bad on the eyes ..

These two have a great relationship going until...
Yep you have to read it and find out. I found that I laughed then snickered and then was shocked and in awe of this couple. Totally enjoyable story..

My review at this time is for Banning by Julia Mills

This story grabs you by the heart it is so intense.
We have a curse handed down to Banning a Dragon for his evil doings.
Myanna has lived her life believing in wishes and fountains although the one time she truly needs her wish to come true it doesn't.
But for some reason Myanna is drawn to the foutain and the dragon that protects it.
Myanna has another problem. She is a doctor of the mind and is being sent in to deal with the worst criminals on earth. What does one do when those prisoners do the unthinkable?

Grab this story I am sure you will enjoy it.
It's intense, we get action and oh so hot romance.

This is Peyton's story and oh I just fell inlove.
Peyton falls head over heels for Raji when they met at a party given by friends. Raji is still an intern, and Peyton is of course in Killer Valentine so it's not easy but Peyton would move the world for her. She doesn't want to ruin her future but then the unthinkable happens. What will Raji do? Can Peyton win her hand and heart?

Totally loved this hot, sexy, holiday story.

Miranda and Nolan are best friends so it's not a big deal when she has to come up with a fiance short notice so her family will get off her back.

Nolan has always loved Miranda much more than a friend but he has never made a move until now. And although she is thinking fake umm nope this sexy man has it all figured out.

The O'Connors are one big loving family and I just love Momma O'Connor. I am sure you could read this without the prior books but I would recommend you begin with book 1 and enjoy each one.

REVIEW
We get two yes that is right TWO Alpha's in this story. It's a wickedly good story. We have one pack fighting to stay afloat with a hideous new Alpha who has decided that Bristol will be his.
Well she is having none of it and runs off and then she is hit with pains unlike anything she has ever felt.

Tatum the biggest Alpha around is having pains and not his healer nor anyone aside from his oldest pack member knows what is up but he doesn't believe the old man.

When Bristol and Tatum meet it's hot, sexy and totally Alpha on both their parts and then the action begins.

I enjoyed this story. It fits truly well in the series of books and is a stand alone.

STRUNG UP: A Blacktop Cowboys Novella by Lorelei James
New to me author.. WOW this short read is packed with total hotness.

Are things going to be better the second time around for Breck and Cres?
Yes this is a M/M story but oh my gosh it's good.

MIDNIGHT UNTAMED: A Midnight Breed Novella by Lara Adrian
True to form for this series we get a ton of action and a whole lot of hot.

I have loved all the characters in this entire series, and this book just reminds me why.
This story although is about Slider and his kids and of course lovable, laughable Cora we get all the characters we have grown to love and even some from other stories. That is one thing I love about this author she brings us those characters and reminds us why we love her stories.

Finally, they may get to take down once and for all a cop who has been after the bikers for quite awhile.

Many things transpire in this story, but we get a heck of a lot of action, suspense and the romance is over the top. Loved it !!

Wow this book takes us on a twisted ride.
Darcy lost her dad at a young age and was raised during the teenage years by her aunt. She feels bad yes about putting her through the ringer but hopefully things will change now that she is older.

The men her father worked with at the FBI show up on her door after a newspaper releases a story Darcy gave them and everything turns dark.

Gripping and yep we get a cliffhanger so I can hope the next book isn't too far off. I loved this story!

Dante has a huge issue and he has to act quick or all will be gone as far as he is concerned.

Bailey doesn't want anything to do with shifters and not this Khimairan either. No way no how.
Why? Well what does one want with the same creatures who ripped her world apart. Or did they?

Bailey thinks she knows what she is but does she?
She has notes and other items but has no clue what anything means. Aside from the note says to trust Dante.
Can Dante save her and have her?

I am a avid dragon shifter book lover and I must say this was a very nice twist.
Amileigh has no idea what is to become of her life. She is dropped into a underground cave and what she thought really never happened? or did it?
Amileigh has always adored Kiernan but perhaps that is not whom she is meant to be with? What happens when someone you meet while in a whole nother world happens to follow you back? And then oh wait for it. He is what? Who? And he is from what decade?
We get time travel, dragon shifters, lords, and spells.
I can honestly say I enjoyed this story. If you love dragons, and a bit of mystery your in for a treat.

If you like clubs, vamps, trouble well you get it all in this book and more. We have Nike who is a firefighter who along with her good friend and co-worker Maya likes going to a local club called Vamps.

Michel is much more than he seems. He it turns out owns the place and many other places that Nike has gone. He has admired her for quite awhile and now his wish may just come true.

Can Michel keep Nike safe from those who want to harm him? Well grab your copy and find out.

My favorite quote from this book:
"Are you here looking to put out some fires?"

I enjoyed this book and we get a sneaky peak at whose book is next at that end. This is i'd say a stand alone.
