Ava Sinclair-Sacrifice

We have a new Ava Sinclair book today. Ava has been spoiling us a lot lately. Today’s book is a move away from her spanko books and out into the reverse harem genre. See, I told you I had some coming through in the near future, didn’t I?

Anyway, not only do we have a RH, we also have dragon shifters, so seriously, the best of all the worlds all over, right? In Sacrifice, we have Lyla, who is a human villager. Her world is ruled by dragons. The dragons limit how much food can be grown by burning everything growable outside of the tightly proscribed fields. If the people screw up, then they are at risk of having their entire fields or village burned down. The dragons ask for one thing. They ask for a sacrifice of the most beautiful young woman in the village.

When Lyla doesn’t make it into the priestesshood, it’s obvious that she’s going to end up being the sacrifice. She gets prepared for the sacrifice and then taken to the altar and tied around the ankle to the altar so that she can’t jump off and kill herself.

Up flies the dragon. He is Lord Drogros Fra’hir, eldest son of Rymoth. He battled his brothers so that he could be the one to get her from her village and to be the one who claims her first. You see, in his people, all the brothers take one bride. So after his time with Lyla, he introduces her to his brothers, Zelki, Tythos, and Imryth, and explains to her that they are also her mates.

Each brother takes her separately. They all have different personalities and each meets some need of Lyla’s. More than that, their cocks are phenomenal. I mean, they give Lyla the GOOD D.

OK, so, good first book of a new series. I like where I see this going. I think that Lyla is going to give her boys a run for their money and I think they are going to underestimate her, but I think that overall, she will bring all kinds of good change.

I do think the boys should pay a lot more attention to Lyla and what’s going on in her head. She’s not going to be happy with them over-protecting her in any way. She’s going to do what she’s going to do, and if they keep trying to protect her, they are going to miss that. I can’t wait to see what happens with the next one, which is already up for pre-sale and will be out next month, so watch this space.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check this one out!

Felicity Brandon-Goldie’s Surrender

I have never loved the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears more than I have when I read Goldie’s Surrender. Felicity has done really well with Goldie and her 3 dominant bear shifter boys. The story is great and the sex? Well, I had to fan my computer off while writing this blog just in memory of the story.

Goldie is the quintessential rich girl. Her daddy is a huge developer who is trying to raze the forest so he can develop it. He’s always given her everything she wants, but never any boundaries, discipline, time, or love. She spends most of her time with Harry the servant at the house. One day, Harry tells her to stay out of the forest. The forest is wild and mysterious. Of course, that means that she’s going to go right out into the forest, wild and mysterious be damned. Goldie likes the great outdoors, she used to go out and hike and took survival courses and everything, so she figures she’ll just go out there for a hike while she’s there and while the forest is still there.

Goldie wakes up early the next morning and is off on her hike. She leaves Harry a nice little note telling him that she had left early to go hang out with some friends. And off she traipses into the woods. (I may need to watch that movie again, the songs are in my head now.) She sets a waypoint on her GPS so she can find her car when she’s done and goes for a lovely hike. Except, she doesn’t get a signal in the forest and she gets terribly lost and ends up spending the night out in the wild.

Logan, Ethan, and Heath are three brothers who live deep in the forest and take care of the woods. And oh yeah, they’re bears. Logan is the oldest and is the Alpha of the bunch. Ethan is the middle child and has some real issues with Logan. They love each other, but they also butt heads a lot. Ethan doesn’t always want to do what Logan says. He wants to be in charge and make the decisions. Or at least he thinks he might want to. Mostly he just has anger issues and doesn’t want to have someone telling him what to do. Heath is the baby of the group. He’s also the most mellow of the three brothers. He often acts as the peacemaker and helps to keep things working smoothly between his brothers. On this particular morning, he is making a nice soup for them to eat when they get home from working on reinforcing a waterway.

When Goldie wakes up with bugs crawling all over her, she is understandably a little upset. She’s lost, her phone’s dead, and she’s cold and hungry. So she wanders off to see if she can find someone to help her. Instead, she finds a cozy cottage in the woods where there are three chairs, three bedrooms, and a lovely pot of soup bubbling away on the stove.

OK, so since we’ve all heard the story of the 3 bears, so we know basically what happens next. But, I’ll bet the version you heard as a kid didn’t include Goldie getting spanked or screwed into next week. The interactions between the brothers read as really realistic of siblings. (I’m 16 months older than my brother, and he was totally Ethan.) It’s a great dynamic there. Goldie and the brothers really worked well. Since each brother had their own strengths, they all met different needs, so it worked really well. I love this fairy tale and want Felicity to write many, many more.

jay elises book

Goldie was a brat and she did have issues with being a brat. She’s a likable brat though, so not too bad. I didn’t like Ethan all the time. He’s kind of a dickbag sometimes. He does manage to pull his head out of his ass, but it takes a lot of time for it to happen.

I love how each guy does something particular for Goldie, in the form of meeting needs. Logan is safety, Heath is the soothing, calming one, and Ethan is the one who scares her, first in the wrong way, but then in the best ways.

Everyone loves each other, which is good and there’s a very nice HEA, since it is a fairy tale. We all know that they have HEAs.

Hold onto this lovely, light RH/menage dearies, because we are going to be rolling in the dark again next week, and you may need Felicity and Goldie to get you through. Meanwhile, happy reading!

Anna Edwards-Fallen For Shame

Anna Edwards has come up with a great PNR series about the Glacial Blood pack. The newest one is Fallen For Shame. Now, this is the first Anna Edwards book I’ve read, but it’s not going to be the last. I’m going to have to go back and read the rest of the series. I wasn’t overly lost when I read this one, the third in the series. It’s about an individual couple set into a larger story arc. There was enough backstory that I had no problem with understanding what was going on.

The Glacial Blood pack is a multi-breed pack. It’s run by a polar bear, has some lions, some wolves, a snow leopard, and an Asiatic wild dog named Teagan.

Teagan has been looked down on her entire life just because she is a wild dog shifter. They are really considered the 2nd class citizens in the shifter world, considered vermin, and trashy. Everyone has always treated Teagan poorly, including her so-called best friend. That’s why she went to Glacial Blood. They have a reputation for being very tolerant and taking in just about anyone. That’s not all she found though. She also found Tyler, a wolf that she has been crushing on and lusting after.

Tyler is a wolf with the pack. Among other things, he cooks for them and is the local computer nerd. He has his own secrets and while Kas, the alpha, knows about them, he wants to keep them hidden from everyone else, especially Teagan, since he has some very warm feelings for her. He’s not sure that Teagan returns her feelings, that is until she is teaching him how to dance and they nearly kiss. Too bad something happened that scared him badly and made him run from the room.

Alright, you know the drill. I enjoyed this book. I like the world that Anna has set up and the way her shifters work. I think they are slightly more cohesive than some other shifters I’ve read about because they don’t seem to see themselves as a human self and an animal self, they just see a self. Or at least, that’s my take on it. I could be totally wrong. It happens. On occasion. Rarely. Maybe. Anyhow, Teagan and Tyler do end up with a helluva connection. It’s a thing of beauty. Although, I think that she should probably kick his ass more often. It would be good for him.

fallen for shame

According to Wikipedia, this is an Asiatic wild dog. Cute, right? Isn’t that just a face that says play with me, you know you wanna?

I think Teagan is my new hero. I mean, she is smart, tough, and the way that she stands up for herself and others is just impressive. I found myself wanting to give her a standing ovation myself. I think that she’s going to do all kinds of wonderful things.

I hate her so-called “friend”. Nothing but a condescending bully. Calling her a bitch works, as she’s a female canine, but isn’t mean enough. She definitely needs to get her head pulled out of her own arse. But hey, she got her comeuppance, so I’m happy with that. LOL.

OK, that’s all I have to say on this book. Go check it out. Keep your eyes on this space for new and exciting things. Meanwhile, happy reading!

Renee Rose & Lee Savino-Alpha’s Obsession

Two of my favorite PNR writers have gotten back together and written a new book for their Bad Boy Alphas series. This time, we get Sam’s story in Alpha’s Obsession.

If you can send your mind all the way back to the first book, Alpha’s Temptation, you might remember Sam. He is Jackson’s sidekick and the other member of Jackson’s two-member pack. Sam is just more than slightly crazed, but he spent a lot of years tortured and a lot of time in his wolf, which makes him lose his humanity just a little bit. Now, he’s on a mission of revenge. He wants to help take down the harvesters and everyone behind them. He’s already helped destroy one lab, and now he’s going to destroy another.

Layne is an absent-minded genius scientist. She spends all her time in her lab. She forgets to sleep, to eat, to do just about everything but work on her research. She’s driven because she wants to find a cure for various genetic diseases. The day after she figures out something fascinating about the super-cells that she’s working with, cells that regenerate, replicate, and heal at amazing rates, her boss shows up with a creepy, creepy Latino man. She doesn’t like the way that they are looking at her nor does she like the way that they treat her. Smart, smart woman. Soon after that, a young man who she thinks is a security guard shows up at her lab. She notices him messing around with a computer, and says something to him because no one should be in her lab except for her. He tries to tell her to leave, but he’s stealing her data, and she isn’t about to let that happen, so he takes her with him.

Obviously, that security guard was Sam. He is stealing all that data for reasons and he plans on destroying this lab too. But, all that changes the second that he sees Layne. There’s just something about her that draws him to her.

Alright, you know the drill. I love Layne. She’s one stubborn lady. She keeps trying to escape from Sam in the beginning and is bound and determined to recover her research from him. There are reasons why she is so driven to do the research, but that doesn’t negate the fact that she loves what she’s doing, and she’s going to do everything she can to protect her research. She’s tricksy, and I like tricksy. Sam has always been a favorite of mine. He’s so broken, and that made me really like him. You just know that deep inside him is a place where he wants to be not broken and a place where he wants to just stop fighting and seeking revenge and find a life he can live instead. When he and Layne manage to start figuring stuff out, it’s beautiful. The chemistry between the two of them is amazing, and since this is Renee and Lee, you know that there is spanking and you know that there is seriously hot sex. You probably didn’t expect duct tape though. Duct tape is really handy.

pexels-photo-682361

We get to meet some new shifters and run into a mostly new one again. I’m pretty sure that he is going to be the focus of the next book, which ought to be interesting. It will be the first non-wolf hero we’ve had in this series so far. I hope we get to see more of the other guys. I really liked them, and I would love to see them get their HEAs. After everything they have been through, they really deserve to have their HEAs.

There are some real shockers that happen in this one. Some seriously amazing secrets that I didn’t see coming at all and their revelation made my jaw drop. I mean, whoa! That wasn’t what I was expecting at all, and it was pretty wild.

And Layne? Yeah, that’s going to be interesting, isn’t it? I like the way that it worked out. And now, this is a real spoiler, so watch yourself here. I wonder if her being Alpha is because Sam needs an Alpha sometimes, to help him with his control. Of course, it could just be that she’s a strong person and it translated over and it was a happy accident. There are only two people who know for sure, and they probably aren’t going to tell us because they are mean like that.

Anyway, that’s all for this one. There are always interesting and exciting books to come, so look for those. Meanwhile, happy reading!

Alien Alphas Part 1

Alien Alphas is an anthology with 23 authors. That means that I’m going to be reviewing a lot of them. If I blogged all of them in one blog, I would get bored and so would you. I endeavor to not bore myself, and I figure if I’m bored, you’re bored. See how that works? Anyway, I’m breaking it into 2 pieces. This first blog will have all the ARCs I got for this one. The second one will be all the other stories which made me go wow. Of all 23 authors in this book, I’ve read all but two of them, so I was really excited to get this one. I was practically drooling over the book when I got it. So, here we go.

Strangeways by Addison Cain 5*

Of all the things that I have to blame Addison Cain for, turning me onto some tentacle porn is one of the weirdest. Or maybe it’s a combo between Addison and Cari Silverwood, whichever, it doesn’t matter, this story was hot. I really enjoyed it and the twists are twisty. I’m hoping that Addison gives us some more out of this universe. Well, after Consumed, and Irdesi Empire, and Alpha’s Control and a surprise that she keeps teasing us about.

But yeah, the sex in this story? Completely out of the galaxy. What girl doesn’t want to get with a cock that can do all the things that Phi’s equipment can do? That bitch Emily is lucky. Well, maybe lucky, but she’s still getting the good dick. I love the whole basis of this story and think that it is an interesting way to do what Phi and his brethern are trying to do.

You may think that you may not have an interest in tentacles, but really, this story will change your mind and make a believer out of you.

Finding Sitra by Jane Henry 4.5*

OK, first thing I have to say about this story? I love the title. It’s my kind of wordplay. It can be taken in so many, many, many different ways, and once you read it, you’ll see what I mean. (Seriously, go buy this book right now. It’s only 99 pennies, what can go wrong?)

What do you do when you are a big bad space soldier and you go to a brothel only to find out that your dead best friend’s baby sister is the prostitute that you just rented? Well, you tie her down and spank her, of course! What happens when that brothel gets the shit bombed out of it? You end up with Cy and Sitra’s story.

They get their HEA, which is wonderful, but it’s not an easy thing for either of them. They both have a lot of baggage that they have to deal with, which makes it even more satisfying when they get together. So, yay for them, and yay for Jane!

Sold to the Enemies by Sara Fields 4*

Sara Fields brings us into a whole new scifi world for her offering and I will gladly follow Sara anywhere she wants to go, please and thank you. ūüôā

Aubrie was the leader of Earth’s space forces, right up until she went and attacked a much more technologically advanced force. She may have killed some of them, but her forces were devastated. The men were killed and the women were taken prisoner and dragged off by slavers. She was on the dais being sold when Edogan¬†sees her and decides to buy her himself. After all, as the commander of the forces she attacked, he’s well within his rights to take her and punish her.

One of the things that I like about Edogan is that he’s secure enough as an Alpha to let Aubrie be the strong person she is. he also takes the time to help her figure out what’s going on with her life.

And this is what my head Aubrie looks like, mostly because I think Starbuck is very cool. So, please, let me have this without harshing it, OK?

Fated Possession by Cari Silverwood 5*

My Cari Silverwood collection is well up into double digits. I think it’s at nearly 20. I’d have to go look. But there’s a really good reason for that. If you’ve read anything of hers, and if you haven’t why not?, you’ll understand.

This story takes place in her Machinery of Desire series. You don’t have to read the series to understand what’s going on in the story, but it does help. It happens at roughly the same time that the last book in that series happens, but doesn’t connect up with that story.

Blue is one of the humans who has been abducted and dragged to Aerthe for one thing. Her blood. Human blood has something that the Mekkers need. When she escapes, she gets caught by Scavs. Sassik is passing by and sees her and sees what’s about to happen to her and decides that he’s going to buy her. Of course, his plan is to buy long enough to find a good owner for her.

This is one of those series that I want the next book as soon as I finish the last book, so having this story to tide me over and give me another look into this world is great.

Drakeon Rescue by Lee Savino and Lili Zander 4*

Dragons are cool. I love dragons. You love dragons. Everyone loves dragons. Flying and breathing fire, I mean, what more do you really need? So, of course my love extends out to Draekons, Lee and Lili’s alien dragon shifters.

A few months ago, Zorhans landed on Earth and gave the humans some miraculous cures. They also took 10 women back with them. Now, on the worst. day. ever. Dor gets abducted by a spaceship and dragged away.

Tin is a Draekon who has spent a year trapped in hell by evil scientists. They are testing to try to find his mate. Cro is his best friend who isn’t about to give up on finding Tin and rescuing him. When Dor gets taken to the evil scientists’ lair, she’s placed with Tin, and Cro shows up with perfect timing.

The Draekon guys are awesome. They are uber-protective and they are also willing to let Dor do what she is good at without smothering her. While this story does take place during the rest of the Draekon books, it doesn’t connect up with them in any way, shape, or form.

Under Contract by Jaye Peaches 4.5*

Remind me never to break a contract anywhere where Jaye can see me. Or maybe, remind me to do that, if she’ll arrange someone like Brax to come get me, because damn. This story gave me the screaming thigh sweats. I mean, dayum. This story is pretty heavy on the BDSM and sex aspects, so be aware of that, and prepare appropriately.

Brax is an extraction specialist. He gets a contract and goes in and extracts women from suboptimal situations, then takes them back to his facility and rehabilitates them. Kleo’s guardian has contacted Brax to go extract Kleo from another planet, rehabilitate her (read make her submissive again), and bring her back. Kleo ran away because she doesn’t like her “guardian’s” plans for her. I wouldn’t either. What no one told Brax is that she’s a human who has been trained with some very particular skills. Skills that affect her rehab.

Brax is a super intense alpha. And dayum, his junk? Yeah, he’s got some good junk going on. I love how cherished he makes Kleo feel and how he changes how she feels about herself.

Her Zandian Masters by Renee Rose. 5*

Horny, purple, horned aliens. The don’t have one eye, they don’t fly unless they are in a flying ship, but they do eat women. (Snerk) I love the Zandian universe. A lot. Thank you, Renee Rose.

Eslyn is one of the few Zandian women left in the entire universe. We originally met her back in one of the full length Zandian stories. She and her “mates” were left on Zandia when it was attacked, and they spent 15 long years as the only Zandians that they knew of, along with their kids. When other Zandians came to where they were, her “mates” tried to kidnap the other woman and kill the man with her. Eslyn, those men, and her young were all brought back to the royal pod for Prince Zander to judge.

He decides that she should be rehabilitated and chooses the three men who have been guarding her to do it. Granit, Laake, and Damon have been best friends and brothers for the majority of their lives, and are almost like one organism with three bodies instead of three separate beings. It makes sense for them to share a mate.

Generally, Renee doesn’t write menage in this series, because it turns out big purple horned aliens also tend to be somewhat possessive. However, it really works in this case, and it is hot af. The guys are awesome and caring, and they go out of their way to show Eslyn how much she matters. Totally awesome.

I know this isn’t what the Zandians look like, but I love this picture anyway, so here you go.

The Ghost in the Stars by Sophie Kisker 4.5*

This is an intro to a new universe by Sophie Kisker, and I can tell it’s going to be hot as fucking fuck. Because damn, this one was amazing. I can’t wait for more of this universe so that I can get to enjoy everything. By everything, I mean all the books and stories, of course.

Siridian is off flying in space by himself when he runs across a ship just floating around. While he waits to get permission to get in and go salvage it, he has the feeling he should just go in and do it, so he does. When he’s there, he finds a dead body and Keelie. Keelie is a human nectar slave who was abducted from a past Earth and dragged into the future to serve the men of Anteros and their addictions.

Siridian has experienced nectar slaves before and he wants nothing to do with this one. He feels guilty about things that weren’t under his control, and he wants to just get rid of her. However, he keeps having a nagging feeling in the back of his mind. Keelie keeps hearing voices and when she tries to tell Siridian about it, he just gets angry and ends up punishing her. Turns out, he should’ve listened to her.

The ideas behind this world are filthy and obscene, which are two of my favorite words when it comes to my reading material. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the ‘verse grows and expands.

So, I had a migraine yesterday and got behind yesterday, and I’m in recovery mode today, which means I’m still a smidgeon behind. The second half of Alien Alphas will be up on Sunday, and the other blog that was supposed to get posted today will be up tomorrow. Meanwhile, happy reading!

Lee Savino-Berserkers

So, yeah, I may or may not have reviewed one or two of Lee’s books here. (Spoiler, definitely did, and more than 2). This time I’m looking at one of her series, or maybe it’s two series, or one total series with two branches. Enh, doesn’t really matter how it’s classified, it’s all about Berserkers anyway.

Way back when, the Vikings had berserker warriors. When these guys went into battle, they were in a kind of trance. They would go into battle without any kind of armor and no one was safe from them and their frenzied fury. There are stories in the various sagas of the berserkers turning into animals during the battle.

Lee has taken the stories and legends of the berserker warriors and turned it into a great set of paranormal romances.

Here’s the basic story. Many years ago, a Viking king wanted to have the best warriors possible. To do that, he had a witch cast a spell over some of his men. The spell that she cast over them turned them into wolves. They also ended up with a 3rd form, the beast. The beast is the berserker form of the Berserkers. When they are in that form, they will rage and kill everyone and everything that is in their view. As they get older, it’s easier for them to fall into being the beast. In order to fight the beast as much as possible, the Berserkers have formed warrior bonds to each other as pairs, inside the larger bonds of the pack. As a pack, they are all connected to each other and they can talk to each other inside their heads. Warriors who have bonded as brothers have a deeper bond and can talk to each other in their heads.

The Berserkers were given information by a witch that if they found a mate, they would be able to control the beast. They were also told what women to look for. The women are called spaewives.

For grins and giggles, I looked up the word spaewives as I was writing this. I wondered if Lee made up the word or not. The word is real, it comes from Scotland and primarily means a prophetess, witch, or fortune teller. Lee also describes them as hedge witches, so that works out well. Makes sense that it comes from Scotland since the stories take place in Alba, which is ancient Scotland.

At the beginning of the Berserker Saga, there are 2 packs. Each pack is ruled by bonded pair of warriors, who are the Alphas. One of the pair is more Alpha than the other. One pack is lead by Samuel and Daegan and the other is ruled by Ragnvald and Maddox. Protip: Hit that link and read the whole saga all at once because there are also bonus extras in it.

The spaewives in the first 5 books are a set of sisters. Brenna, Sabine, Muriel, and Fleur. The sisters have their books in that order. Brenna was attacked by a wolf years before and cannot really speak. Sabine has some skill as a healer.  Muriel and Fleur are twin sisters.

Alright, each sister gets their mate, but that leaves a whole lot of Berserkers without any mates. Because their Alphas are under control, the rest of the pack are more under control, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t need their own mates. Luckily, or maybe not quite so luckily, in Fleur’s story, a convent full of spaewives is found, and all the Berserkers go raid it to get their own mates, which leads to the Berserker Brides series.

In Fleur’s story, we get to find out about that convent because she is chased by the grey men who are minions of the Corpse King, the uber-bad guy. He has been taking the spaewives as necessary to power him up.

The Berserker Bride storyline is all about the various Berserkers getting their brides and fighting for them. Each story has its own HEA, but they are all connected together in a broader sense. I, personally, wouldn’t read any of these books as a stand-alone, and especially not the newest one, Berserker Babies, which is a small look into the lives of the sisters and where they are standing as the fight against the big bad progresses.

I would suggest that you go read them, starting with the box set and go through the Berserker Brides. They are all pretty quick, easy reads, with some seriously hot wolf shifters. The women are all very strong characters in their own right, and nothing causes that to change. They are still strong women even when they are submitting to their mates. The majority of the books are menages, with Fleur’s book having 3 guys, and the first Berserker Bride book only having 1. I reread them fairly often when I’m looking for something that is hot, quick, and dirty. So, go check them out!

Lee Savino & Lili Zander- Draekon Abduction

Do you like dragon shifters? I like dragon shifters. Today, we have a lot of dragon shifters. Thank you, Lee and Lili.

So, we’re back on the prison planet. Draekon Abduction starts right after the crash. Unlike the previous 3 books, we’re dealing with a different group of human women and Draekons. In the first book, Viola, Harper, Sophia, and Ryanna were rescued by the group of Draekons¬†led by Arax and Nyx. When the guys first saw Viola, they knew that she was their mate. They turned into dragons, and then took her away. Harper, Sophia, and Ryanna were out trying to find food and water and were rescued by Viola and her mates. When they went back to the ship to get the other women, they were gone, taken by another group of Draekon.

This book starts the batch of stories about Olivia, Paige, Felicity, May,¬†and Bryce. These women were rescued by another pair of Draekons, Liorax¬†and Zunix. The second they see Olivia they shift into dragons, so they know that she’s their mate. While they are still in their dragon form, they fly the women as close to their camp as possible. Before they get to the camp, they land, shift back into humanoid form, and tell the women that they are going to be a very precious commodity. When they get to the camp, a whole bunch of dragons all of a sudden appear. Everybody has a mate, except for Bryce. But that’s OK, Olivia makes up for it, another pair turn into dragons and say that they are her mates. They are hereafter known as Fox and Hare. Mostly because I think it’s hilarious. That’s what Olivia kept calling them in conversation. Fox and Hare are douchelords and up to no good.

Zunix, Liorax, and Olivia are all keeping secrets. For all that Olivia acts like a big boobed ditz, she’s actually a very, very smart woman and a member of the CIA. She’s there to go to Zoraht and spy on the Zorahns. Zunix was an assistant spymaster, so pretty much the same kind of thing that Olivia is. Secrets are their lives, and they don’t even let their right hand consider knowing what their left had is doing. Liorax isn’t a spymaster, but he doesn’t want a mate. He had a bond mate once and she betrayed him. However, he wants to keep Olivia away from Hare, so he agrees to court her. There are all kinds of motivations going on between the 3 of them. It’s lovely. I love all the levels of secrecy.

On top of those secret, Dariux, who wants to think that he’s the leader of the village, is also a spymaster and he is up to something. Fox and Hare are up to something too, something completely different. Then other strange things start to happen.

So, here we go. Each Draekon book becomes my favorite, just as soon as I read it. It doesn’t matter how much I liked the one before it, I like the new one best. The series is getting better and better, which is a yay. There’s a lot of intrigue and conspiracy in this book. That makes it a little more complex than the other books are, I think. However, I have a feeling that they are going to stay a little more on the complex side. If hot sex, menage, hot guys, and intrigue work for you, go check this one out.

OK, we pretty much always knew who Raiht’vi was, but the reveal of who may be looking for her? Oh, holy fuck. That’s a major game changer. I don’t know what that’s going to mean for the next book, but I can’t wait for it to come out. I just know it’s going to take too long to come, especially since Lee is a very busy lady and she is in the midst of a personal expansion project.

On the end, I’m wondering how certain things are going to work out now. I kind of expect Olivia and her mates to end up as part of leadership now, since they are very tricksy and very smart. Arax is pretty smart and he’s going to use everything at his disposal right now, especially with all the latest bombs.

OK, that’s all for today. Tomorrow we have some twisted fairy tales coming up, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, happy reading!
