Firelord (Alpha Lords Book 8)

First he will punish her. Then he will breed her.

An arrowhead forged in dragon fire should have killed the beast Caitlyn came to slay, but she missed. Perhaps her aim was poor… or perhaps her body knew its master and betrayed her.

Either way, it doesn’t matter now. She is at her enemy’s mercy, and he is not going to be gentle.

She will be spanked until she is sobbing and begging, but the real screaming will begin when the Lord of Fire claims his mate, ravaging her quivering body in the way only one of his kind can.

Soon she will know what it means to be bred by a dragon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two stories in one: Firelord finds his true heart and the possible end for someone else
Reviewed in the United States on December 13, 2020 Verified Purchase
Truly engrossing fast read from Ms. James. A little comical too. 😉 The Firelord is the fourth Elemental Dragon to find his true mate as Kellan, Duncan and Gideon before him. With the Firelord’s reawakening we are closer to the ending of the saga that caused their thousand-year sleep. But first Seth, the Firelord must tame his true heart and keep her from trying to kill him! Caitlyn has trained for the day when she can kill Seth, and eventually take over the realm according to legend. She’s good with a bow and arrow but is she good enough?
And then there is the reason all the Elemental Dragons have been brought out of their long sleep: the war is coming and a vampyr of old is trying to take over. Can they stop him and his league in time?
Keep in mind that this is a discipline story with lots of spanking and lots of “making up” afterward. 😳 Really steamy stuff. This was a real page-turner and I loved it. My only problem with it was that there were a few places where the shift from scene to scene was not clear whereas in others the delineation by asterisks was clear. Fix those and it is a five-star book. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book and if you like spanking discipline and its aftermath 😜you will want to read this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2020
I have not been overly fond of this series, and my reviews have been on the negative side due to repetitious stories and characters (male) who are interchangeable. I was surprised that I enjoyed Seth and Caitlyn's story so much. I figured Seth would be another arrogant, domineering dragon who didn't show growth or change, but he was the best of the bunch! Yes, he was still arrogant and changed Caitlyn without her consent. And punished overly harshly at times. But he was at least willing to accept Caitlyn for who she was, and allowed her to use her strengths and talents to help him. He was also more laid back and willing to see humor when his mate was "sassy" than the other dragons. Kellan is still the worst of the bunch - his mate is dragon-born and he STILL tries to keep her away from any type of interaction that could be deemed dangerous!

I loved when the female dragons met and got together to put a halt to their husband's school-yard behavior! Also loved that Caitlyn got a few licks in on Seth at the beginning. Yes, she fell to his lust WAY too fast, but at least she made him work for her! I so enjoyed that she was able to allude him for a few days!

The battle scenes were a bit anti-climatic. Again, I thought it was stupid to make the women stay back at Gideon's stronghold instead of helping. They're dragons for Pete's sake! They would be so much more valuable in a battle than mere humans! And could have, like Caitlyn, stayed back but still had a part. Enjoyed seeing the wolves show up and form a new alliance, but wish Emma could also have played a bigger role. But this was by far the best in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU WHEN YOU WAKE
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2020
Once again, Ms. Delta James has penned a page-turning, action-packed, romantic suspense filled shifter tale. Whether you have read her Wayward Mates series or not, the story will read well as a stand-alone. If you did read Wayward Mates, the story takes place many years into the future; a plague has ravished the earth, things are returned to the old ways, before technology.

NOTE: This is a post-apocalyptic dark shifter romance. It contains explicit sex scenes and may seem like non-con or dubious consent—but it is the way of life among these shifters---especially when they are fated mates. It is a way of life, with a strong, dominant alpha male and an equally strong submissive female who eventually capitulates and finds the pleasure in his control and mastery over her body. Yes, it even comes with the coveted HEA ended.

The story is the fourth of the elemental dragon shifters and will be Seth, the Fire Dragon. He is also the one that was known to enjoy women frequently. When he returns to Stone Fire, he will have two women at his ready to slake his long-overdue lust. But after the first one, he will be attacked. His assassin will escape, and he must go after them, but what he finds is a shock; it isn’t a man but a woman.

“I am Seth, Lord of Fire, and who might you be? More important, why are you trying to kill me?”
“I am death,” she hissed.
“Curious name for a beautiful girl. I will teach you to threaten your dragonlord.”

The story will have a powerful chemistry between Seth and Caitlyn, and while she tried to kill him, he has great admiration for her. When she escapes, he is lost without her, but he will find her and bring her back home.

“Stay safe, my true heart, but know I am coming, and I will make you pay dearly for your latest misadventure. “

The story also brings a danger that will have the four dragons and the alpha wolves together to fight evil. It will be good versus evil, and this is the battle that decides the future. It was fun seeing all the alpha wolves, their mates, the dragons, and their mates all working together.

While Caitlyn may have wanted to kill Seth initially, she has great respect for him and he for her. He teaches her how to fly, being positive, and even agreeing to allow her to be with him in battle. Unlike the other dragons, he has waited to breed her because of the immortality issue.

“There is nothing more important to me than you. You are my lover and my mate—my beloved and my comrade. Yes, my love. We will see it through to the end—together.”

As with the other stories in this series, it contains discipline and explicit sex scenes—but there are some unique characteristics to a dragon---read it and find out! I don’t know if this will be the final story in this series, but this is the battle that everything has been leading up to, and they claim their victory.

Skylord (Alpha Lords Book 7)

She set out to slay a dragon. She ended up claimed and bred.

When Duncan awoke from long centuries of sleep, Aurora was waiting for him, ready to strike him down and avenge her ancestors. But the Lord of the Sky is not so easy to kill, and she ended up punished, sore, and screaming with every helpless climax as he ravaged her mercilessly.

But the ancient beast didn’t just strip her bare, spank her until she was soaked and sobbing, and then use her as savagely and shamefully as he pleased. He did much more than that.

He bred her, seeding her virgin body ruthlessly and thoroughly, over and over again.

When a dragon claims his mate, he leaves no doubt she is bound to him forever.

Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2020 Verified Purchase
Aurora has been taught that the Elemental Dragons were not worthy and must be killed. She knew that there were two still “sleeping” so she decided to secretly enter their cave and kill them. Duncan is the third of the Elemental Dragons to awaken from their thousand-year slumber. What woke him or rather who?
This was a fascinating and very steamy paranormal story told in dual points of view about ancient times when dragons roamed the lands and protected the people from other shifters or just others…If you’ve ever read a Delta James book you know what I mean by steam. Lots and lots. Clever story with connections to the previous two books in this series of standalones, DRAGONLORD and SEALORD. Short but thoroughly entertaining if you like steamy paranormal dragon stories with spankings and blushing “cheeks.”
I volunteered to review an ARC of this book and now want to read the other two as well as the last in this series! Love the cover too. Something is coming and this world will need these four dragons…

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating story, captivating characters, a CAN'T-MISS paranormal romance!
Reviewed in the United States on October 28, 2020 Verified Purchase
Author Delta James has once again claimed the 5+STAR recommendation only because I cannot award more stars. SKYLORD, Ms. James’s latest standalone paranormal romance, is set in the same world as WARLORD and DRAGONLORD. A world that is both seductive and complex, where paranormal beasts rule over lands filled with their kind and humans both, and a world that is so compelling that it is difficult to come back to life’s reality. This world has given birth to six intriguing and captivating stories and the promise of at least one more – though I am hoping for so many more! Within this dangerous world, author James has given her readers alpha men who have both the strength and daring needed to tame the strong women they need to sire their young and stand next to them as they rule and protect the beings they have sworn to protect. SKYLORD finds our heroine, Aurora, finally at Dunnet Head and ready to do what she must to stop the last two dragons resting there from waking, forever. Instead, she must deal with an awakened Skylord, our hero Duncan, who recognizes Aurora as his mate and true heart. With prose both alluring and descriptive, Ms. James weaves her tale of two strong personalities who find themselves at cross-purposes and pulls her readers into the middle of that action. Where characters who seem both real and worthy are struggling to be the leaders their positions require and a deserving mate to their true hearts. If you are 18 or over and are not offended by spankings and sexual scenes, then SKYLORD should be your next romance purchase! I volunteered to read a copy of SKYLORD and this is my honest, voluntary review. I have purchased a copy of SKYLORD as well and plan to put it in the FAVORITES collection on my Kindle. Happy pages! 😉

I thought it was a fun story with lots of history that helps reconcile with what has already happened in this series and what's to come. There are 6 sentences with missing words, so while it isn't a huge deal, I would have someone edit one more time. I wish we got more of Stanis, but maybe its still coming in the next book?

Delta never lets her readers down. The story of Duncan and Aurora is complete in itself and continues the saga of the awakening dragon lords. As always we have a heroine who is brave, strong and amazing and a hero who we'd all like to have in our own lives. In Delta's books we can always depend on a great story and the best steamy love scenes. Delta never lets us down.

Sealord (Alpha Lords Book 6)

She will be claimed and bred, but first she must be tamed.

Only one thing could have awakened Kellan from long centuries of sleep. The scent of his mate.

Míorúilt has the blood of dragons in her veins and taming her will be no easy task, but Kellan wouldn’t want it to be. While he slumbered he dreamed of how sternly and shamefully he will punish her defiance and how thoroughly he will claim and ravage her beautiful virgin body.

Now it is time.

Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2020 Verified Purchase
This was the second book in the series, staring the second Dragon to awaken, Kellan and M (I can't remember how to spell her complicated name). I really liked how the story centered on women pushing back against being forced to marry and do what the men want them to do. Unfortunately, there is genetics and traditions, and Kellan has decided to teach M what it's like to be a female dragon. The other women are super strong and loved their varied ways of dealing with the upheaval of being forced to leave their home. There was an interesting bit revealed that might complicate the relationship between Kellan and M.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2020
I really enjoyed reading this outstanding, dark dragon shifter romance & it can be read as a standalone. It has a well-paced, strong plot filled with some unexpected situations & it certainly grabbed my attention within the first few pages & kept it until the end. The characters are strong-willed individuals with unique personalities that display a determination to succeed although the female character portrays realistic defiance & tries to avoid an inevitable future. There is good support from the secondary characters.
It is about: the second male dragon shifter & Lord of the Sea (Kellan) has finally awaken from his slumber with one thought in his mind & that is to claim his mate (Miorúilt) of whom he has been dreaming about but she is not too keen about this idea.
There is: dragon shifters, friendship, fated mates, action, adventure, twists & turns, intrigue, suspense, drama, tragedy, sanctuary, dreams, determination, confrontations, manipulations, defiance, threats, coercion, some dubious/non-consensual scenes, emotional turmoil, discipline, spankings, steamy scenes, contentment & a very interesting ending that is paving the way for the next book in the series. I enjoyed read this dark dragon shifter romance & would recommend it to people who enjoy reading this genre. I sincerely doubt that you would be disappointed.

Mioruilt is a young woman that has grown up working on the land she is a special sort that is absolutely full of attitude and life and she is not in anyway aware that she is actually the last female dragon until one day she finds herself quite literally in a collision course with a dragon.
Kellan is Lord Of The Seas and he has recently waken from a sleep that had been induced by a wizard, during his time sleeping he recalls that he had dreamed of a female who he had never seen before and yet he knew in his heart she was special to him.
This was a simply splendid read and I know that you will not be disappointed, it is a wonderful addition to the previous story and I am sure like me you will be left waiting for the next book.
You will be totally blown away, something that Delta James has become extremely proficient at…..

Míorúilt. is the farm girl who isn't aware she's the last female dragon until fate takes a hand and puts her on a collision course (in the air) with Kellan, Lord of The Seas - the next of the elemental dragons to wake from the long sleep. Marvelous second story in the series with what we usually expect from Delta - strong hero, kick-ass heroine, great action and steamy in all the right places. Can be read alone but Delta's books are like potato chips - you can't read just one.

Wolflord: Alpha Lords Book 3

Ruari of Clan Dundalk knew Arielle was his mate as soon as he set eyes on her, but he had planned to court her properly. When she arrives in his lands as an uninvited stowaway, however, he decides it is time for this beautiful, headstrong female to be taught her place over his knee.

As she is led to her new mate’s castle naked, blushing, and sore, with only a sheet to hide her helpless arousal, Arielle’s fury at being bared and spanked is exceeded only by her desperate need to be thrown to the ground and ravaged by the brute who just punished her so shamefully.

She won’t have to wait long…

If you did read Wayward Mates, the story takes place many years into the future; a plague has ravished the earth, things are returned to the old ways, before technology.

It is a way of life, with a strong, dominant alpha male and an equally strong submissive female who eventually capitulates and finds the pleasure in his control and mastery over her body. Yes, it even comes with the coveted HEA ended.

Now that Rowan has mated to Alaric and Sloan to Gareth, Arielle fears that she will be next for a pairing but decides to head out on her own, maybe start a female pack as their former ancestor did—but running away has her running to her future. Raised to be the mistress of a pack is one thing, being forced into it is another.

“She-wolves in their society had few choices and even less power.”

The sweet, biddable, normally obedient Arielle has more of Rowan in her than most realize, and she will start to assert herself, her wants, and it includes disobedience that will land her in trouble with her Alpha, Alaric, and over the knee of his Beta, Tristan. She isn’t going to have it and makes plans to leave, to branch out on her own, and it starts as a stowaway heading to Erie.

“I want you to be safe and happy, whether it’s in this pack or another. And for that to happen, you need to learn to behave—even when it’s not something you want to do. If you plan to be an effective mistress to a great pack, you will need to obey your mate and alpha.”

“Let this be a lesson to you, Arielle; little she-wolves who break the rules and disobey their alpha get their bottom turned bright red and have to stand in the corner until they have atoned for their behavior.”

Now that Ruari has become Alpha of Dundalk after the death of his brother, he knows it is time to claim his mate. He has felt her calling, and what a shock when he learns that Arielle is a stowaway on a warship sent by Alaric to his waters. He is ready to claim her, but she refuses his claim. She will fight him, but he will win.

“We have a difference of opinion. I suspect we will have more of those than I originally thought. Part of the lesson you need to learn today is that my opinion is the only one that matters. Nay, lass, we are more than well suited, and you know it. You are my fated mate and will do better if you learn to obey me from the start.”

The story has plenty of angst between Arielle and Ruari, and she fights him on his claim, demands the right to run, and still, he must show her his dominance when he catches her. She brings trouble to herself with her attitude, and he shows her she will not be allowed to get away with it. When trouble is on the way, heading straight for Gareth and Alaric, Ruari will not be able to go into seclusion with his mate, but instead must leave her and go to their aid. She wants to go, and he refuses—but will she listen or allow her strong-will to disobey him, knowing what the punishment will be?

“No, you are the daughter of an alpha, sister to a rogue female warrior, and cherished mate to the alpha of Dundalk. In my absence, in most ways, you will rule here. Our clan will look to you for comfort and guidance. There will be those whose mates are with me and do not have your strength, skills, and pedigree. I leave our lands and our clan in your most capable hands.”

“You wanted the Arielle that they all thought me to be—sweet, obedient, meek.”

“I may only be a wolf, but I am your fated mate. I could no more deny that than you. Thus is why it takes a she-wolf who knows her own mind and is beyond compare to take pity on a poor alpha, such as myself, to lower herself to accept my dominance.”

Warlord: Alpha Lords Book 1

He conquered her. Now he will claim her.

When Rowan inherited control of her pack upon her father’s death, she vowed never to marry, and many a suitor has since been sent home disappointed. But Alaric of Ravenscar is no suitor…

He is a warlord, never defeated in battle, and he has come to take what he wants. He means to conquer not just Rowan’s lands, but her beautiful virgin body as well, and her efforts to defy him merely result in her being mounted and claimed with her well-spanked bare bottom still burning.

Soon Alaric will mark her as his mate, but first she will be thoroughly and shamefully mastered

In this new series that the author has started, we are with the werewolves from the Wayward Mates series. This is set in the future where a plague has gone through the world and has reverted to medieval times.

Rowan is the alpha of Calon Onest. As a female, her pack is happy with her, but the rest of the wolf packs are not. After she kills the envoys from the council, they send Alaric, the warlord. Alaric is more than happy to go as he is looking for a place to settle down with his troops. On the way, he discovers that Riwan is his fated mate and that changes his plans somewhat. Of course, he tames Rowan, but the fun is the way it happens.

I highly recommend this book. I loved it and am looking forward to at least two more books in the series with Arielle and Sloan
