Fury of Destruction: Dragonfury, Book 7

The long awaited return to the world of Dragonfury is here! For those of us who have been eagerly waiting for this book, the author doesn’t disappoint. The story picks up almost seamlessly from the previous book and gives us the story of the next Nightfury to find his mate. Along the way, we see couples from the previously books and get what I consider to be hints of action to come!

Book Blurb:

A man on the warpath…

Dragon warrior Gage has earned his brutal reputation. He strikes hard and fast, killing without mercy or remorse. But with the Nightfury lair full of females and a newly adopted son to protect, his ability to focus takes a hit. When one mistake leads to another, putting an innocent woman on enemy radar, he’s forced to decide—keep her safe by taking her with him or roll the dice and hope she goes unnoticed by the Razorback pack.

The woman in his way…

Samantha Redhook isn’t a pushover. She floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. But with her business failing, desperation pushes her to take a contract she normally wouldn’t have, landing her in a world of trouble. Can she save the situation before things get worse or will an error judgment put an end to her dreams, and then her life?

This book was a long-awaited continuation in the Nightfury saga. While the book was mostly about Gage returning home and adjusting to life away from his time in captivity, it was also moving everyone else's story right along with him! A lot happens here, and I do mean a LOT! Gage finds his prickly mate while laying a trap for the Razorbacks. Once he realizes he is in the presence of his mate and muscles his feisty Samantha away to safety, the multi-story arcs kick into high gear!! We get a much closer look at Azrad (his talents and intellect are eye-opening) and his pack to see how events are coming together with Ivar's plan for the HE female breeding program. Angela and Rikar are soon front and center for a surprising revelation after her brief exposure to Ivar's lab. Bastien and Myst are worriedly preparing for the arrival of their son. Sloan is finally in the spotlight and steps up in huge ways to help out his pack and to rejoin the land of the living. We get to know all of the metallics (Haider & Nian along with Gage) and Osgard more clearly. We see how they are working through their shared trauma together and coming along as a family. We also start to see outside alliances forming to aid in the war against Rodin. Zidane and his death squad and mercenaries are officially in the Seattle area and gunning for the Nightfury pack. That may not be his only agenda however... Lots of action sequences, surprising abilities being revealed, as well as steamy bonding time between Gage and Samantha as she finds her way in her sudden new reality.

Claimed by the Cyborgs (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 9)

Return to the Colony!

In an all new Interstellar Brides Program book, Ms. Goodwin returns us to the Colony. A new Prillon pair of Warriors is here with more than a few problems leftover from their time in the hands of the Hive. Unfortunately, there wasn’t as much that the skilled doctors could do to remove the implants on these two. And for the first time, the Hive has involved the Prillon Mating Collars!

Book Blurb:

Two honorable warriors with nothing left to lose…until they find her.

Prillon warrior Thomar Arcas is the royal heir to his ancestor’s legacy of dishonor, betrayal and death. When he was captured by the Hive, some on his home world cheered. Some sighed with relief. None shed a tear.

Thomar and his second, Varin, break free and destroy an enemy base, barely escaping with their lives. They transport to The Colony, the last refuge for contaminated males. Upon arrival they suffer in agony, their cyborg implants fighting for control of the powerful warriors.

Defeat is not in their blood. Not in their history. Not in their souls. Unable to sever their ties to the Hive integrations, they suffer relentless pain. Unwilling to force others to suffer, Thomar has chosen an honorable death over further disgrace; until they are matched to a human female from Earth who will do anything, and sacrifice anyone, to save them

Danika was in prison when she decided to join the bride program. Paired with two Prillon Warriors, she is ecstatic to finally have people to call her own.
She is surprised, however, when the two warriors try to deny her. Thomar and Varin have been outcast amongst the Prillon, for actions taken centuries ago.
Operated on and augmented by the hive, their implants causing great pain, they are sure that Danika would be better with someone else.
Danika knows that they are perfect for her, however, and never let it be said that a human woman would give up that easily…

This was a very moving addition to the series. Danika herself is wounded by her own past, and it makes her perfect for members of the colony.
Both Thomar and Varin are typical Prillon, honourable and protective, qualities that make them perfect for Danika.
That being said, it is what we hear about the Hive in this book that really makes a difference; a significant piece of information and it is such a small part of the story!

As with every Interstellar Brides book, you can expect plenty of romance and sexy-times, along with some cameo appearances by heroines and heroes of previous books. The annoying Dr. Helion has to stick his oar in too, and of course the hive are active.

Although the romance itself is a standalone romance, this is part of the Interstellar Brides series, and needs to be read as part of it as some significant information is given in those earlier books that readers need for context and understanding.

An enjoyable sci-fi romance for genre fans, and an important addition to the Interstellar Brides for fans of the series.

I am not going to lie; this book broke my little Grinch heart. Thomar and Varin have escaped the hive, but they haven’t escaped their torment or torture. Although they are no longer prisoners of the hive, they are prisoners all the same…

Danika is a prisoner too… and now she is looking for something she has never had. Freedom, love, protection… SAFETY and so she decides to do something about her circumstances, and she joins the Interstellar Brides program.

This book… good heavens, Thomar and Varin INSTANTLY won my heart. They are both honorable protectors that have been dealt a terrible hand in life. Danika is tough, and she exudes an undeniable strength. I am so darn happy to be back in with the Interstellar Brides! I have missed these warriors! But the warriors from the colony will always have a special place in my heart.

Claimed by the Cyborgs is a well-written page-turner with characters you can't help but fall in love with and a universe you can't help but fantasize about. I am a big believer that more is better... which is why two Prillion fighters are always better than one!

A MUST-READ ROMANCE and all the recommendations from me!

Another heart-wrenching Colony story. If you haven't read any of these stories - The Colony is where the Coalition Hive war veterans with Hive integrations have been exiled.

This Prillon pair have suffered greatly at the hands of the Hive, as they were in Hive hands for two years. And just when Thomar is ready to do a major sacrifice for Varin, they are informed that their matched bride is in transit to The Colony. Enter Danika, one of our criminal brides (for those that don't know - criminals are given the chance to volunteer for the Interstellar Brides program to commute their sentences). Danika is looking for something she has not had since she was 8 years old - safety and security and she is willing to fight for it.

I loved that this story was more about the fallout from Thomar and Varin's captivity and the ongoing Hive experiments. I really loved that we got more information on the Hive reasoning and actions - the main twist was hinted at in previous books. I cannot wait to see were the twist is heading especially after the major reveal from the Nexus.

There are some smexy scenes for those that require them but i skipped over them to get to the action.

I am all for the story and found this edition to the series - fantastic with great reveals.

Touch of Fire: Fated Legacy Book 3

This book is one that makes me truly thank the author in every way I can. “Why?” you ask. All through the Tangled Vines series, Fated Legacy, and the newest series, Paranormal Mystery, she has been mentioning three famous BDSM clubs. Dante’s in Italy, Baker Street in London, and Torchlite in California.

If you read “Corked”, the prequel to the Tangled Mates series, then you recognize that Torchlight is owned by the Sonoma Pack led by Damian Steele. If you grab the novella, “In Vino Veritas” from Delta, you will find that the DeMedici pack owns Dante’s.

But it wasn’t until Mariah Halsey takes refuge at Baker Street that the missing series fell into place. Remember Mercenary Masters? The series debuted in July of 2020. It’s the only human owned club that Ms. James mentions. It’s also mentioned several times in the new Paranormal Mystery series. I can’t wait!

Mariah is obviously the daughter of Oliver and Rosalyn Halsey. Simon, on the other hand, is a new alpha to our group. He’s the heir to the Alpha of London, and full of his own tricks to bring to bear on the problem of the Darkness.

Book Blurb:

The Darkness has fallen on London and needs a new host.

I use a blowtorch to make sculptures out of twisted iron. I’m an artist, independent, tough and an American. My life plan is to create beautiful art and follow my own destiny.

My fated mate is Simon Howard, the newly crowned Alpha of London.
Simon’s plan is different as I find out when he kidnaps me from a gala event featuring my art.

The Darkness possessed a wolf in the pack and learns many things about shifters. Secret things only known to us.

When the Darkness threatens all they hold dear, will Mariah and Simon be bound together to banish the Darkness?

Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2021
The series is an ongoing saga. I love that we see the next generation—the offspring of those from Wayward Mates and Tangled Vines—but we also get to catch up with the couples from the first two series. The story takes place in 2048 and moves around the globe. The fourth story will have Mariah Halsey in London for a charity auction where she has donated several pieces of her unique artwork. Simon Howard has avoided taking over as Alpha of his clan, but it is time to step up and take his rightful place, and once he realizes his fated-mate is here, he is ready to claim her.

“Hello, Mariah. I can’t believe we haven’t met before now, but then I understand your mother eluded your father for years. Rest assured, my sweet mate, you will not be allowed to report that mistake.”

The story’s plot continues with another couple finding themselves as fated mates; this time, it will be Simon Howard of London and Mariah Halsey of the Hamptons. But, it also has issues with the Hunters and the Darkness—who has found itself a new, weaker host. Mariah is in London for a charity auction where all the other couples will also be attending—the last thing she expected was to be called to by her fated mate. The two will have a standoff, shift, and the chase is on—but don’t count this alpha she-wolf out; after all, she is Roz’s daughter.

Genevieve Howard: Simon, are you sure?
Simon: Quite sure, as the other alphas who saw my mate respond to my call, can attest.
Mariah: I’ve lost my appetite. I’d rather go back to the hotel.
Simon: I’m sure you would, love, but let’s table the discussion about where you’re going to spend the night until after dinner. If I loosen my grip on my beautiful mate, she will try and steal away from me.
Mariah: You’ve got that right. Let go of me.
Simon: That is enough, Mariah. You will behave yourself, or you will find yourself receiving my discipline before anything else.
Mariah: Who do you think you are?
Simon: I believe I answered your question, pet. I am Simon Howard, your fated mate.

The story includes Simon taking control of the London pack, declaring he has unseated his weak-willed father as Alpha, and having the loyal backing of their pack. It will have Simon and Mariah playing cat and mouse in the merry chase, capture, capitulation, and claiming.

Simon: Come here, pet. I won’t bite. Well, I suppose that’s not technically true, is it?

“Sated and replete, her eyes closed, and the realm of dreams rose up to embrace her. Sighing, her mind taunted her that she had lost. But her heart whispered to her that she had won. She would choose to listen to her heart.”

The story has the good, the bad, and the evil, and with it comes the loss of some of the London pack members, a new fated-mate pairing, and yet, the Darkness is still a problem. Will the wolves be able to once again defeat and lock away the Darkness preying on the world? This series will continue with at least two more books.

“Taking its next host, the Darkness absorbed its knowledge. The destination seemed a good place to feed, to heal, to become invincible. Then it would return to the city across the sea. It had a score to settle with those descended from the one who had trapped it so long ago.”

Touch of Light: Fated Legacy Book 2

If you haven’t started keeping track of families in this series, you are definitely going to want to. Things are heating up and getting hotter by the book!

Jed Steele is in Italy, visiting the DeMedici vineyards. Looking to learn more to help take his family vineyard in Sonoma, he is startled to find his fated mate. If his mate’s father hadn’t been with him, things might have taken an entirely different path.

Book Blurb:

The Darkness has risen and has a new host in its grasp.

I have known Jed Steele my whole life. It isn’t until he sees me walking in the family vineyards in Tuscany that he decides I am his fated mate.

I have my life planned and it does not include a fated mate. A job offer in San Francisco combined with an invitation to visit New Orleans for a friend’s restaurant opening gives me the perfect excuse for leaving home. He can’t claim me if I am not here.

The trip was supposed to be something new and exciting. Instead it has turned into a nightmare. Evil was waiting for me and its powers are growing. Only a force greater than evil can stop what’s coming next.

An ancient evil on the rise. Will they be able to work together before the evil extinguishes the light?

“Your granddaughter has destroyed his minion, but the Darkness is clever and abandoned the body before its demise. The Evil One hides in the shadows of the city, seeking another to help it escape. Watch over your people, Calista. The Darkness seeks to conquer the Light, and it is the children of the wolves who will battle this evil.” –MawMaw Chantal

“The Darkness had been banished for now, but not vanquished. The Darkness could only be contained, but she feared it might never be defeated.”

The series is an ongoing saga. I love that we see the next generation—the offspring of those from Wayward Mates and Tangled Vines—but we also get to catch up with the couples from the first two series. The story takes place in 2048 and moves around the globe. Josiah ‘Jed’ Steele will be in Florence, Italy, visiting Marco DeMedici’s vineyards and seeing Luca Marion. Still, when he sees Katarina Marino, he knows she is his fated mate.

“Still, without thought he rumbled to her quietly, enjoying her surprised response.”

Luca: No apology for calling to my daughter before speaking with me?
Jed: I fear not. My family history is not that of wolves who ask permission to claim what is theirs. Would I like your blessing and that are Marco? Of course, but one way or another, your daughter is my fated mate and you saw proof of that with your own eyes.
Luca: That I did, and I suspect it was what provoked her sudden departure.

The story’s plot will have Jed calling to Kat, and she decides to use the excuse of going to New Orleans for the soft opening of Loup de Mer restaurant, to go there early. She will leave Italy, and it won’t be long before Jed learns she has left—but he knows that she is his—and she has to know, he will come for her. With the multiple murders in New Orleans tied to a dark entity, MawMaw Chantal warns Skylar and Kat that the Darkness is not gone and seeks a stronger host, one who will do its bidding. The story will revolve around the relationship and claiming of Kat by Jed—but also it will include the Darkness, and how it will affect them.

“The stronger the host, the stronger the Darkness. Wolves are inherently stronger; it would value one of you as a host.”

Kat: I-I don’t understand
Jed: What? I wasn’t supposed to understand that you can’t allow this Darkness thing to roam free to create havoc and mayhem? Come on Kat, give me credit for being smarter than that.
Kat: You’re coming with me?
Jed: What else would I do?
Kat: But what about your responsibilities here?
Jed: I am your fated mate. You are my primary and most important responsibility. So no, my beautiful mate, we are in this together.
Kat: You understand
Jed: I do indeed. Again, I am your fated mate.

“Often what we don’t understand is easier to dismiss than to explain.” –Chantal

The story will leave America and have Kat and Jed going to London, England, to attend Mariah’s exhibition. They will meet with Simon Howard, the son of the Alpha of London, and discuss some things that have happened—the next story will pick up from here.

Jed: We were able to track the Darkness and the Hunters to England and then lost them.
Simon: Any idea why it came here?
Jed: We think looking for more Hunters.
Simon: That would make sense. What is your plan?
Jed: Keep my mate safe and destroy it.
Simon: How will you do that?
Jed: That’s the problem—we don’t have the faintest idea.

Silent Predator: Masters of the Deep Book 1

The intrigue in this book and series will draw you in from the very first page. Ms. James and Ms. Brandon have created a most puzzling world here. There is mystery woven through every chapter.

Shiloh Whitaker has but one purpose in her heart, prove that her mother didn’t commit suicide, but was instead murder. With this in mind, she has obtained a doctorate in Marine Biology and is a renown treasure hunter. It wasn’t until she received a mysterious envelope from her recently deceased father that her mind was made up. Now all she needed was to find that forgotten sunken ship, the USS Kracken.

Mason Lockheart lives a double life. By day he’s a highly decorated Navy Commander in the SEALs. By night? By night he’s a Great White Shark shifter, tasked to follow in his father’s footsteps and protect the USS Kracken and the secrets she took to her watery grave. He, along with 4 other male Shark shifters, will give their lives if needed, to protect that secret.

When their paths cross deep beneath the sea, who knows what will become of them both….

The Book Blurb

A predator prowls the Sea of Cortez, protecting a mystery that has been kept silent for almost a century—damning information that some are still willing to kill for.

Mason Lockheart is a highly decorated Navy SEAL with a mission that he can never reveal to anyone… even the curvy redhead who’s determined to bring everything up from the depths of the sea. Mason’s family has been part of a clandestine patrol since the USS Kracken went down. He has taken on a solemn duty to protect its final resting place and its covert mission.

Twenty years ago, Shiloh Whitaker’s mother was murdered to keep her from revealing what she knew. As a child, Shiloh watched as her mother’s killers got away, running from her home into the black of the night. Now later, she’s a celebrated marine biologist and treasure hunter, but her real calling is to find the Kracken and prove her mother’s suicide was anything but.

When Mason spots Shiloh’s submersible lurking in the dangerous waters around the Kracken, he tries to frighten her away. But Shiloh doesn’t scare so easily—even if the thing that sends her sub to the surface has rows and rows of razor -sharp teeth. Something about Shiloh calls to Mason in a way he’s never known before. Determined to pursue a passion he doesn’t truly understand while still upholding his oath, he follows Shiloh into a storm that could destroy them both.

When the truth is revealed, will Shiloh betray Mason and the Kracken, or will all of the secrets of his heart be safe with her?

This is the first book in the Masters of the Deep series by Delta James and Felicity Brandon.
This is Mason Lockhart (highly decorated Navy SEAL) and Shiloh Whitaker (marine biologist and treasure hunter) story. The quote below is what just fascinated me to read this extraordinary book.

A predator prowls the Sea of Cortez, protecting a mystery that has been kept silent for almost a century—damning information that some are still willing to kill for.

He has a mission that he can never reveal to anyone. Mason’s family has been part of that mission to protect the USS Kracken ever since it went down to its final resting place at the bottom of the sea and its covert mission.

Twenty years ago, Shiloh's mother was murdered, she watched as 3 hooded men ran away and since then Shiloh has spent her adult life trying to prove it, as well as her mother's theory about the USS Kraken. These two met in a bar in La Jolla, CA, well the chemistry is just off the charts. They spend the night together, both have secrets, they go their own way in the morning, him telling her to stay put, he would be back. Needless to say she leaves and begins her search to prove her mother theory. They meet again whilst he is guarding the Kraken as a great white shark, and when he finds Shiloh in a small submarine searching the wreckage site! The more they interact with each other the more they want from each other. Will they be able to sort out all their feeling toward each other? Will the truth come out? In this book you will find a very alpha male (great white shark) and a very feisty female who shows guts and determination in the face of adversity. Brilliant read!!!
Rhonda Hicks rated it it was amazing
Delta James and Felicity Brandon have conspired to create a first-time read for me and it's amazing! 'Silent Predator' is the first book in their new series "Masters of the Deep". If you've read the blurb then you know Mason Lockheart is a decorated Navy SEAL. He's also a great white shark shifter. He and four other shark shifters, like their fathers before them, have the duty of patrolling and protecting the sunken USS Kracken from interlopers. It's a rather singular life between career and duty. Shiloh knows what she saw twenty years ago when those three masked men left her house. Her mother didn't commit suicide and she intends to prove it. All she needs to do is locate the USS Kracken and get the physical evidence to prove her mother's theory in order to do so. These two characters hare on a collision course from the very beginning. Both are strong personalities, both dedicated to what they believe is right. Of course, with these two authors, you know there's bound to be domestic discipline. Yeah, this was all determination then hot chemistry and explosive scenes along with a mystery trying to be solved, and then the sleaze-ball I didn't give a second thought about decided to show his hand. Now I'm wondering how he exactly fits into the picture. Just a side note of curiosity. Do sharks bite and convert their mates?? Interesting concept, don't you think?

I'm a huge fan of shifter stories. You know, wolves, bears, big cats, dragons but I never thought I would like a shark shifter! I don't like sharks but with this book, I think I could easily become a fan. Delta James and Felicity Brandon have teamed up to write Silent Predator and all I can say is wow! Mason is a shark shifter and military guy who is tasked (along with a few others) to protect a sunken ship that seems to hold secrets about WWII that some people don't want found. Shiloh is a professor but is leaving to see if she can figure out why her mother was killed years ago. This story, from the very start, pulled me in. The attention to historical detail was wonderful and the descriptions of Mason when he shifted was something I could easily picture in my mind. Will Mason be able to stop Shiloh from snooping around? Can he keep her safe? Oh, don't miss this book. If you love shifters, this is one that you will love!

The series will be an ongoing saga, so this is your warning for those who get upset that the story does not end and consider cliffhangers or unanswered sagas an issue. The sons of Cyrus and Hannah Waverly, Cade, Cash, Cole, and Clay, will each be involved in the storylines. The series is a paranormal shifter tale with steamy heat and power exchange and includes dubious consent and consent. The story is full of action, adventure, danger, mystery, suspense, passion, romance with a dominant man and a woman who loves him enough to acquiesce and submit.

The story's plot will have Clay Waverly and Serena Clarke along with the battles they must face—before they find each other and then after. While the beginning of the book sets up these two characters, it will bring up things that happened in the previous stories and how it all falls into place using a timeline up to the present day. How Serena came to live in the area, and when Clay first sees her, knowing she is his bonded spirit.

“She was a bit like a wild mare: beautiful, intelligent, strong, and courageous, but distrustful.”

From the previous stories, for some reason, the sheriff’s office wants to place the blame for Cyrus's death on Clay—since he doesn’t have an alibi. The person he was with was shocked to learn he is a lion shifter and fled—now, she is back, and she is fierce, ready to help protect him.

“It was a lot to take in, but did it really change how she felt about him? Her heart ached at the idea that she might never see him again. Could she live with the fact that he wasn’t completely human? More to the point, could she live without him? Did she even want to?”

“Give to me, Serena. You’re mine. My mate, my bonded spirit, my everything.”

The story has the good, the bad, and the evil—and trouble is coming Clay’s way. Clay and his brothers know he can live off the land and stay safe, but not if Serena is with him. To protect others, Clay must go in hiding, and once Serena comes to terms with his shifter status, she knows that it doesn’t matter, only the love they have for each other. She will be of more help at Koyama, working with Kennedy, drafting motions and cooking, and offering her support at the ranch. But, how far will a sheriff go to get to Clay? Will he try to implicate Serena?

There are still unanswered questions surrounding the death of Cyrus and even Hannah—now Clay is arrested, being accused of murder. The plot only thickens, and new information will be revealed, along with the killer in the final book, Strong.

A fantastic installment in the Ghost Cat Canyon series! The mystery surrounding the murder of Cyrus, the much hated sire of the Waverley brothers, continues to provide some suspense and drama while the steamy relationship between Clay and Serena will fog your glasses. Of all the Waverley brother’s Clay is the only one who has had a relationship with his bonded mate for a long period of time, approximately 18 or more months. He and Serena really know each other and have developed a significant bond despite Clay’s insistence they hide their connection to keep Serena off his father’s radar.

Serena’s past includes working for Kennedy Greyson’s law firm as a paralegal and after being fired she ended up working for Earthly Spirits winery which is owned by Wolf shifters and a part of another series by the author. I love when you little Easter eggs that tie books to other works by the author or other authors. Unless you are familiar with the Tangled Vines series, you won’t even realize the significance of these other characters and it in no way impacts this story. It’s just a fun tie-in for fans of The author’s other works.

The suspenseful storyline has evolved over four books and continues to add clues for the reader to solve the mystery before answers are learned in the next book. The legal drama and paranormal elements have added to my enjoyment of this series in addition to the D/s & BDSM elements Delta always includes in her books.

I’m really looking forward to the final book in this series which will focus on Cole and Kennedy’s relationship, past and present, and bring the conclusion to the mystery of who murdered Cyrus and why.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Then came London.

Intelligent, quick-witted, and strong-willed with more curves than a country back road, Oz was defenseless in the face of the fiery attraction he felt for this redheaded bombshell. Busting through his iron-clad defenses like a landmine, for the first time, the Guardsman known as ‘Stone Cold’ struggled to find his balance.

So, he opened his mouth and stuck both feet along with half his ass in as far as they would go.

Now, the tables are turned, and her father’s been abducted. The choice is clear. Swallow his pride and help the one woman in all the world created just for him. But will she forgive his arrogance? Can she ever understand his need to protect? Overlook his less than politically correct way of getting his point across? Be his partner when he turned her away without so much as a backward glance?

The Universe doesn’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but then again, neither has ever dealt with a couple as unpredictable as Oz and his Bobcat.

Take cover! The fuse is lit! Prepare to have everything you ever thought you knew blown to bits!

Stone Cold Protector
By Milly Taiden.

Paranormal is such an amazing genré, it opens the door into so many different opportunities and ways for the characters and the magic surrounding them to be developed into pieces and works of art
Julia Mills is an expert at creating these world’s, and “Stone Cold Protector” is another perfect example of
How superbly she is able to bring together a couple, who have an apocalyptic issue to deal with, together.
Seemingly complete opposites, Oz and London find themselves in perfect balance once they allow their pre conceived ideas to be pushed aside.
Full of fast paced action, never ending twists and turns challenging situations and even stepping into the unknown, will keep you wanting to turn the pages to find out exactly where all this adventure is going to finally end up.
Not even the demonic possession of family members, will stop these two strong willed characters, from completing what they know has to be carried out.
With his shifter brothers and mate, Oz and those who have been prophesied to complete, this magical action taken all the steps necessary, returning to the underworld and it’s prison the demon who has enjoyed wrecking havoc to everything it touched.
Suddenly they find together they have what it takes to achieve rendering this walking evil back to the prison it should never have escaped from.
Leaving us with the continuation of a series a reader would find hard to turn away from.
If paranormal is what you enjoy, then your going to have trouble putting it down.
This is one book that wi hook you in from the first chapter.

Always love it when these big tough dragons lose their head when meeting a beautiful woman. Why do they think that being rude will earn them points?.. I swear that is not the way to hide how you feel, but what do I know..lol

Perfect story addition to this world and Mills world of dragons. Always love when we blend two worlds together and characters seem to mesh. When they are brought together correctly and with great flow and proper character attitudes.

This story was great and you didn't want to put it down, can't wait for more.

Oz should be given the worst 1st impression award! From the first line of the book he has ATTITUDE! Not only NOT wanting to work with another agency but also not wanting to work with a partner. And when that partner sends an “electrical current strong enough to power the entire Vegas strip for a month of Sundays…” and the first thing he says to his mate is “oh, F@!@! no. Not now. Not ever….” Well things can only get better from this point forward. FYI – it does !
London who takes nothing from anyone is about to have her whole world shaken and it will take not only Oz willing to work with London but London willing to work with Oz and others to save not only her family but her the whole O’Connor Pounce.
I love the Dragon guard books and yes this is number 38 but they are standalone books for the most part but where is the fun in that! This was a great story and the friction between mates is always fun to watch because they want to fight it but you know they can’t for long!
Julia has a way with words that make you not want to put the book down and once the last page is read you watch your e-mail for the notice of a new book coming out!

OMG absolutely loved this book. It was great to be able to read about Lana and Taulan's dragonlets being born. Taulan poor fellow thought he was dieing but meanwhile he was actually feeling the Lana's labour pains, hilarious at times. I really hope that we will see more about this couple and their children, particularly because of the surprise ending.
Would definitely recommend this book to read but would suggest reading them in order to understand the characters better.

This story shows that life still goes on after the happily ever after part. Lana is pregnant with twins. Theses babies are part preor and part human, the first of their kind. This has everyone on pins and needles. There's no way of telling how the babies will react to pain medication so Lana has to have natural child birth ( imagine giving birth to two watermelons through an opening the size of a lemon with no pain meds, there's no words to describe the pain involved) The link between a preor warrior and their mate is very strong. No one knows how deep the link is until Lana goes into labor. Sympathy pains to the extreme.

Hated that this was so short. Loved that Taulin had to suffer thru the labor pains & how the pain was able to bring the mighty Preor warrior down! How many women in the history of human's has said that a man (or in this case a Dragon) couldn't handle the pain in child birth! This was like sweet revenge, makes you wonder if he will be willing to go thru it again for more babies! 😉 I've always thought there would be less babies born if men had to go thru pregnancy & labor instead of the women. More deets would have been nice to some areas of the story too. There were a few points in this that weren't as cohesive, but overall, this was a fun read. I think all women who have given birth will appreciate this story.

Kiss My Asteroid: Paranormal Dating Agency #14

Moving on to a new planet with Gerri. Don’t ask me how, but it seems like everyone who is anyone, knows Gerri!

Ivy Grimaldi can’t stand change. Ever. But change is something she’s had to deal with a lot lately. Like when her cousin Cassandra moved away to start a new life, baby and all. That all changes when Gerri Wilder shows up at her door with a letter from her cousin. Cassie wants her to come visit. Sure, why not? There’s just one problem. Cassie lives on another planet. A far-the-heck-away planet, with her hotter than hell shifter mate.

Vander Kasval, King of the shifter warrior planet Galaxa, has his own problems with change. A lead by example kind of a king, he’s between a rock and a hard place. He needs to find a mate to help put an end to a brewing civil war. None of this would be happening if not for a plague affecting only the females of his planet. His warriors and the men of the Palladian Capitol are ready to riot. Vander reluctantly agrees to send for matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. If she can find a match for him and his men, then his world might be saved.

Ivy agrees to go, if only to make sure Cassie’s okay. Oh, alright, and to maybe find an intergalactic hookup for herself in the process. In a planet full of big, bad, sexy shifters, anything’s possible, right? Ivy’s in for the time of her life in a planet of unimaginable beauty and dangers she had no idea existed. But Ivy isn’t one to sit idly by and let something happen. With two new friends, they’re about to take Galaxa by storm.

In order to see her favorite cousin in person to make sure she was truly happy with her abrupt choice to leave the planet, Ivy agrees to travel with Gerri Wilder to visit the strange new planet her cousin now calls home. Along with two other woman, Ivy can't believe how beautiful the sexy mancandy is on the planet and it's not a hardship at all to visit. Gerri sets up a special surprise communication with a sexy male program for Ivy but the true surprise is when they travel to the sister planet, Galaxa and Ivy runs into her sexy simulation in the flesh. Vander is the King of Galaxa and hasn't been able to get Ivy out of his head since their communication and suddenly she is there within his reach, an opportunity he will not waste since he knows she is meant to be his. Galaxa's women have been dying and they need women for the men on the planet, the people are planning mutiny and Vander is trying to find the source of the sickness while trying to stop the dangerous uprising. While still in the PDA series, this felt fresh. You get to see old characters and we are introduced to a bunch of new characters as well. I'm excited to read what comes next in the Galaxa Warriors of the PDA series!!!

She has taken a topic that has been done before and made it her own but also keeps it original without reapting herself and keeping you on the edge of your seat. I am an avid reader and have found myself skipping whole paragraphs in book's because the writing is so predictable. But not with Ms. Tilden's books, I devoured every word and was left wanting more.

LOVE! Gerri is at it again! This time she takes three women with her first to Aurora then on to Galaxa. Women who miss their friends and are determined to find out where they are and what happened to them. Oh Gerri is not one to let them get away. She had plans for them, she knows where they belong. (snicker)
Vander is the Galaxa King and must find a mate, only he thinks that Gerri can find mates for his warriors but not him. He doesn't know Gerri well. Ivy is sassy and a bit of a smart a$$. Vander and Ivy, ummm let's just say that they have an unconventional first meeting and have a bit of a good time. Now, without giving spoilers here, they just have to make sure they can stay together. Yup, a bit of a mystery and betrayal is involved. Keep in mind also that there are two other women with Gerri. Yeah, I stayed on the edge of my chair when reading this. Bring on the next one!

Ivy Grimaldi is just over it, in more ways then one. She is feeling incomplete but is ready to see the on!y person she loves her cousin. She has to see her in the flesh. What she never expected was on him. Ivy has had her fun, (kinky computer sex) but it's time for an escape. Gerri Wilder is at it again. But Ivy will find the matchmaker always pairs her couples!! Vander Kasval, is in need of a mate. His only option is Gerri. He is a huge man with unbelievable appetites. His beast is on the edge, his people realize its only a matter of time. What's more is that the females are being targeted, and his enemy is closing in and his newly found mate has been marked. Can Vander save his mate and future. If you love paranormal dating agency you won't be disappointed. Milly finds new and innovative ways to bring her alpha males to life, the heroines are feisty, spicy and full of inner sex goddesses. As with all of Milly PDA, there are situations that have you on the edge of your seat, after 14 books its just as delicious as the first. With new planets and galaxies, its definitely skies the limit for Milly Taiden. She is in a category all by herself. This is one that shouldn't be missed.

Fury of a Highland Dragon (Dragonfury Scotland Book 1)

Running from the US government isn’t smart—neither is sticking around when accused of cyber espionage.

Framed for selling state secrets, ethical hacker Ivy Macpherson is one of the FBI’s most wanted. Seeing no way out, she skips town, triggering a worldwide manhunt. On the run, she comes face-to-face with Tydrin, a man more dangerous than the agents on her trail.

Haunted by the past, all Scottish dragon-warrior Tydrin wants is peace. Hoping to atone, he returns to the scene of his crime and walks into the middle of an armed standoff. Unable to ignore a woman in trouble, he intervenes, only to realize the one he wronged is the woman destined to steal his heart.

Can she forgive him for changing the course of her life? Or will the past ruin his future with the woman of his dreams?

I am a big fan of this series by Coreene Callahan. All those Dragonkind men are smoking hot! This is a side story in the series. It follows Ivy Macpherson and her journey to discovering her true mate and the history of Dragonkind.

The story was great just standing on his own. I think if you have not read the rest of the series, though, you will be a bit lost. Many things happen quickly and with seemingly no question. If you have the back story on the Dragon shifters and how they feed off the Meridian, you will enjoy this story more.

I found myself hoping to get a tie in with the Dragons in the US. I know Forge is from the Scotland but there was no mention of knowing the other group. I am hoping Ivy will somehow be helpful in the fight that is to come given her cyber hacking skills. Looking forward to reading the continuing story in this series. And, if you haven't tried out a Dragon shifter----why?

I feel like I have been searching and waiting forever for the next Dragonfury book by Coreene Callahan. I adored the Seattle Dragonfury team and their mates. We never did get to finish the stories, I hope this new Dragonfury team will merge or overlap with the original one. I loved the aerial fights and the extreme protectiveness of the Seattle team. Now, we have a new team on the East Coast of the USA. We never did finish with the scary European dragons and their backstabbing and cruel ways.

This story starts out with Whiz Hacker, Ivy Macpherson in a cemetery late at night. She is accosted by the FBI and another agency. Her handler in the FBI was using her and then turned on her. They have guns trained on her, she takes a step back and into the invisible arms of Tydrin, a shape shifting dragon. He gets her assent for his protection and then envelops her in his invisibility and takes off.
He discovers that not only is she super smart and talented, but a high energy female capable of fully feeding his energy needs. ( You may need to read at least the first book of the previous series to fully understand this ). He takes her back to his den and his 'brothers'. He has a terrible secret that has kept him feeling guilty for about 20 years.

I was so excited to see a new Dragonfury book! I hope that there will be many more, SOON PLEASE!

Fury of a Highland Dragon by Coreene Callahan

A Dragon finds his mate and he is lost to her allure. He will do anything to have and protect her.

A novella of a series, but can stand alone as introduction to the clan and dragon world. But know it won't answer all questions and it does leave some open issues.
A quick romance, falling in love and commitment. Romance done right.

Rich descriptive prose.
Excerpt:
He drew a deep breath hoping more oxygen would fuel his failing intellect. Frigid air rushed into his lungs. His brain reengaged, force feeding him a shovelful of common sense. A plan. He needed one...right now. Before he did something stupid like scare the everliving shite out of the female. Not the best way if he wanted to get close. And oh how he yearned to, 'cause...aye. Now that he'd seen her he wanted to know how she would taste. How she would fit in his arms, how it would feel to be fed by such powerful energy. The thought crying to him tighter. Excitement skittered down his spine. Tydrin tightened the leash on his control. He didn't want to frighten her. The moment he did, she'd run scared, and he'd lose his chance.
But even as he cemented his plan of attack, temptation urged him to drop his invisibility spell, step up behind her, and grab hold. Take her home. Love her well."

I can't believe it took me so long to read this book! Its been on my list for awhile and I finally got to it! This was very short compared to her others. Didnt pack as much punch but I still enjoyed it. I was a little lost as first since its been awhile since I read Fury of Obsession. It started to come back to me though. I know she's getting ready to release another in a bit and wanted to catch up!

Ivy has been accused of espionage but nobody will listen to her. She goes back to her hometown only to be found. However, someone she never expects rescues her and she is so drawn to him that it totally freaks her the heck out so much she loses all control of her breathing. She's got scarred lungs which is bad and she passes out. What will she do now?

Tydrin has a lot of guilt and self loathing. Knowing he's responsible for ruining lives 20 years ago. He's a good guy but has just forced himself down such dire guilt and darkness. Until he sees her. A HE (High Energy) female. He's never seen or felt one of fed off one. He's gotta have her and help her at the same time. He can't make up his mind but he just cant walk away. Once he knows who she is he knows he'll lose her once she finds out what he did.

Quick read and very sexy. Question is will Ivy still want him? Can Tydrin be what Ivy needs and not desert her and love and care for her?
