Passion, hope, and forbidden desire…

Holly Jennings wasn’t planning on another trip to Scotland. And she certainly wasn’t planning on a trip down memory lane with the hot Highlander who broke her heart. But she’s never been much of a planner — more like a roll-with-the punches country gal. A good thing too, because “one last request” may not be the only thing a beloved mentor left her in his will. Before Holly knows it, she’s heading on a mysterious mission to a remote island — and straight into danger.

Dragon shifter Lachlan McKenney likes his life logical and organized — not turned upside down by the lithe, impulsive beauty he’s been trying to forget for years. Especially now that he’s busy guarding a ruthless archenemy who’s plotting to escape an island prison.

But Holly awakens every emotion Lachlan has been trained to resist: passion, hope, and forbidden desire. Apparently, there’s no outrunning fate, just as there’s no shirking duty. Against the odds, Lachlan must keep Holly safe on her mission to carry out a venerable old dragon’s last wishes. At the same time, he must resist temptation, because letting his focus slip could cost Holly her life — and unleash a deadly foe.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Fantastic! This couple is decidedly different from the other Fire Maiden couples. To start with, she’s a dragon shifter and has been shifting since childhood. None of the others had been. Then, we find out that this is actually a second chance for this couple. They had met a decade ago, just before he left for the French Foreign Legion. Lachlan and Holly are a wonderful pair.

As always, the descriptions of the area and the surrounds are superb. You can truly get a great sense of the area where the action is taking place.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to read this one before it was published. I truly enjoyed it.

Wow!

Fire Maidens: Ireland (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 5)

Magic, shifters, and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Inheriting a cottage in Ireland seems like a stroke of pure luck to Grace Connolly — as is a chance meeting with her mysterious (and hot) new neighbor. Soon, Boston’s most up-and-coming harpist finds herself mixing business with pleasure and getting to know Finn Hurley — intimately.

But all is not as it seems with the alluring man from next door, nor in the seaside village of Ballyfianna. Magic, shapeshifters, and legendary pots of gold? The surprises don’t end there — not when Grace’s family secrets come to light. Before she knows it, her mini-adventure — and sizzling romance — become a fight between good and evil. Ruthless enemies are muscling in on Finn’s home turf, and Grace will need more than the luck of the Irish to survive. Does she dare unleash the hidden power within her — a force she’s been warned never to use?

After a decade of military service, dragon shifter Finn Hurley is finally free to track down the elusive beauty he’s secretly loved for years. When he discovers her in his hometown, it seems like destiny is smiling on him. He should have known nothing in life comes easy — especially love.

Because Ballyfianna is no longer the peaceful, sleepy place it once was, and Grace has unwittingly become involved in its troubles. Bitter enemies from beyond its borders are plotting to seize power, while traitors are conspiring within. But they are all mere puppets to an even more treacherous enemy lurking in the background. Can this battle-weary warrior defeat evil and finally find his happy ending?

Rating: 5 out of 5.

If there is one thing I love about Ms. Lowe’s books, it’s the wonderful description in them. You can feel the air moving, look around and see the area. The characters are genuine with real, relatable flaws. The situations they find themselves always feel like this could truly happen. That is something that keeps me coming back for more! Thank you and well done!

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Anna Lowe loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting the later inspire her fiction. If she’s not hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story, you’ll find her hiking in the mountains or biking country roads. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Fire Maidens: Portugal (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 4)

A jaded warrior who doesn’t want to get involved + an irresistible she-dragon on the run.

For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.

Novice dragon, Laura Sampao, always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. She thought it would never happen to her.

Wrong.

Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. But that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.

Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe.

Why? Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wonderful! Another great entry into this series. If there’s one thing I truly love about Anna’s books, it’s the wonderful descriptions of people and places. The characters are people who have flaws and strengths that every one can relate to. I’m looking forward to reading more.

In Lure of the Dragon, Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters know the rules: Don’t trust a human, and never, ever fall in love with one. But Tessa is different. Her emerald eyes mirror the mysterious pendant she wears, and her flaming red hair makes Kai’s heart race. Is his inner dragon just greedy for a new kind of treasure, or is Tessa his destined mate?

Fire Maidens: Rome (Billionaires and Bodyguards #3)

Danger lurks over Europe, where a ruthless dragon clan plots to seize power in the grandest, most glamorous cities. The guardians of old have summoned a new generation of shifter heroes to protect the castles, cathedrals, and cobblestoned streets of their ancestral homes — and to seek out the last of the Fire Maidens, women coveted by the dark lords for their royal blood. Those women are absolutely off-limits to the young warriors tasked with protecting them. But destiny, of course, has other ideas…

New Yorker Lena Castamolino has trouble. Big trouble. Every time the full moon shines, her body tries to turn into a wild beast, and she has no idea why. Her skin goes all leathery, and her shoulders begin the agonizing transformation into wings.

Wings! Could it have to do with her recent move to Rome — a magical city that called to her for years? Or does the answer lie in the father who abandoned her at birth? Either way, she needs help, because all the grit and determination in the world can’t stop the moon — or the evil forces hot on her trail.

Rome may be known as the Eternal City, but eternal banishment is more like it for members of the despised Monseratti clan. But wolf shifter Sergio Monseratti has been granted one last chance to return to the city he loves, and he’s not about to blow it. “All” he has to do is bring down a ruthless mafia boss, and he can’t afford any distractions now. And he absolutely, positively cannot fall in love with the mysterious woman who could be the key to saving the city, no matter how high the passion between them builds.

Dazzling starlets, billionaire playboys, vengeful enemies, power-hungry dragons, secret heirs… It’s impossible to know who to trust, but one thing is for sure — destiny is on the move, and Rome is its stage.

Fire Maidens: London (Billionaires and Bodyguards #2)

A lionhearted hero + scheming shifter factions = unforgettable PNR

Lancelot, a corner of her mind decided. A knight in shining armor.

Then she remembered the stalker, and her smile faded. Voldemort was at the far set of doors, she was at the near set, and Lancelot was at the exit in the middle of the car.

Please, she wanted to whisper to Lancelot. Help me. Please.

Behind him, Petro’s look-alike leaned into view, and Gemma froze. Her alarm must have shown, because Lancelot’s smile vanished, and his nostrils flared as he spun to face the stalker. Everything about his stance bristled with power.

The stalker’s expression changed too, and he and Lancelot stood facing off like a couple of gorillas. They didn’t actually rage and beat their chests, but they did give off serious vibes. Vibes packed with testosterone, anger, and…something she couldn’t quite define. A raw, elemental force that made the air around their shoulders shimmer.

They were so still, it was frightening. The orange-red hue of the stalker’s eyes intensified, and he balled his hands into fists.

Lowe, Anna. Fire Maidens: London (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 2) . Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

“Rebel with a cause” Gemma Archer flees Boston one step ahead of a creepy stalker. Now she’s in London, trying to build a new normal — and absolutely, positively not getting involved with any men. That is, until an irresistible stranger prowls into her life. Liam is a sweet, sexy modern-day knight who sparks her sizzling desires. The problem? He’s as loony as some of her relatives. Dragons? Lion shifters? Werewolves? The poor man really seems to believe the tales he spins.

Liam Bennett is fresh out of the military and doing his best to adjust to civilian life. But fitting in was never his forte as a shifter of mixed blood. He’s part lion — a member of London’s most noble family — and part rogue, with “undesirable” dragon blood. When the Guardians of London hire him to help maintain law and order, Liam jumps at the chance to prove himself. Soon, he discovers nothing is as it seems — not among his allies, enemies, or even his own family. The only thing he can be sure of is the danger Gemma is in.

A deadly foe has stalked Gemma for thousands of miles, and Liam has no choice but to spirit away his destined mate to his ancestral dragon home — the remote castle in Wales he’s been avoiding for years. But hiding out is not enough. Can Liam and Gemma survive cunning enemies and the deceptions of the past?

Fire Maidens: Paris (Billionaires and Bodyguards)

Paris! City of dreams — or shifter nightmares?

You can trust him, a little voice whispered. You must trust him.

Her lips moved in protest, but no words came. Just a little squeak that made his face soften.

Then the swinging door burst open, and Olivier appeared.

“Hey!” one of the cooks yelled. “You can’t come back here.”

Olivier — pale, creepy Olivier, who seemed twice as sinister as before — ignored the protest and stalked forward.

You, his eyes promised Natalie. You are mine.

Natalie watched in horror as Olivier’s lips peeled back, exposing long, pointy canines. The only thing that kept her from screaming was the steady grip of Tristan’s hand on her arm, propelling her toward the door.

“That way,” he grunted. “If you want to live, get moving. Now.”

Lowe, Anna. Fire Maidens: Paris (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 1) (p. 8). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Natalie Brewer has come to Paris to live out a dream, not a nightmare. Then a vampire attack exposes her to a whole new side to the City of Lights — and to her own heritage. Before she knows it, she’s swept into a world she never imagined, with gargoyles, werewolves, and dragons who claim she’s descended from a legendary shifter queen. Now her life is in danger, and it’s impossible to know who to trust, other than the mysterious stranger who risks his life for her again and again.

After a decade in the Foreign Legion, all dragon shifter Tristan Chevalier wants is to settle into a civilian life and a new job. His mission: to prove himself to the Guardians of Paris and to protect the city. But all that is threatened when an innocent woman stumbles into his life — and into his heart. Being appointed her bodyguard is a blessing and a curse, because Natalie is absolutely, positively off-limits despite the smoldering desire they both feel. Worse, every shifter in Paris has set their sights on her, from bloodthirsty vampires to power-hungry dragons and jealous rivals. For Tristan, it’s the test of a lifetime, and the outcome will affect the fortunes of an entire city.
