Katie Douglas-Flame Daddies

Katie Douglas has been having a good month. First she released an Aria Adams book, and now we’re getting a spinoff of her 24th Century Daddies ‘verse. (Her Daddy and Her Master was one of my first daddy books and was my first Katie book) Today, not only are we getting Daddies, we’re getting dragons, and a reverse harem with Flame Daddies.

Alora is a princess. She’s not just A princess, she’s THE princess, the daughter of the Emperor-Paramount of the Interplanetary Alliance, in other words, the ruler of the entire galaxy. So, she’s a pretty important person. Which is why slavers kidnapped her after they blew up the government center on Nidia, which Alora is pretty sure also killed her father. Luckily, she gets rescued.

Argon, a silver dragon, Sharpe, an emerald dragon, Brynn who is gold, and Canavan who is an amethyst dragon are 4 brothers. They have managed to… acquire a spaceship. It’s hard for dragons to own things like spaceships since the elves on Telia II, with whom they share a planet, want to kill them all off. In fact, there are very, very few dragons left any more because of the genocide the elves are committing. Species-cide? Whatever. But, the boys have managed to get one, and they are on their way to Telia I to see if it’s a good planet for dragons when their sensors show that there is dragon DNA on a ship ahead of them. They figure there’s eggs on the ship, so they are going to go rescue them, but when they get there, they find Alora. So, of course, they rescue her.

All the boys are attracted to her, and the funny thing is that they all pretty much have the same thought, which is that they shouldn’t let their brothers know that they are attracted to a humanoid. Hmmm… Didn’t stop them though, now did it? Some of the dragons have cool fire power. Sharpe and his green fire are healing, so when he flames Alora, he heals all her injuries. Canavan’s purple fire is even better. He can adjust the temperature and he can make his flame stoke the feelings of lust, and OMG he does. The guys also have a pouch on their bellies when they are dragons that they can use to carry things, like ginormous, scaly kangaroos. I thought it was just like a built-in Baby Bjorn, since they tuck Alora in there when they are flying. Kind of fits for a Daddy book, even though there isn’t so much age play in this one. Since it’s a Katie book, it’s sweet with a nice bit of funny too. I’m hoping we might run into some old friends as we go through the rest of the series, since we already know one half-elf.

OK, without going back and checking, I’m wondering if the story that the dragons tell Alora about the reason the war picked back up is about Flin from Her Daddy and Her Master, but I can’t remember right off how old he is. I’m going to have to go back and check to see if I’m right or not.

I’m looking forward to seeing Alora rule with the guys backing her up. I hope that there are still a lot of dragons. I want to know what she’s going to name the planet.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check out all of Katie’s Daddy books. Happy reading!

Lili Zander and Lee Savino-Draekon Fever

After an eventful spring filled with lawsuits and new babies, Lili Zander and Lee Savino have been able to get back to the prison planet and bring us a new story to love with Draekon Fever.

So, our major players are Ferix, Rorix, and Sofia. The guys were two of the guys in the drop with Arax, and rescued Sofia and Harper, among others. What Sofia doesn’t know is that right after they saw her, Ferix and Rorix had to run away and turn into dragons. She was their fated mate. However, they didn’t want to completely overwhelm her, so they decided that they would wait a few days and let her settle in. Except there was another problem. The male who caused the crash that stranded the humans on the prison planet is distantly related to them. By law, that makes them as culpable as he is and they can’t benefit from his crime. That means that they can’t claim Sofia as their mate, no matter what their inner dragons and their hearts want. So they end up with a mating fever.

Sofia is a doctor. She worked really hard to get where she is. She’s attracted to and flirted with Ferix and Rorix, but suddenly they turned cold on her. She’s a virgin and she figures that she’s just going to be a virgin forever, because she can’t even give it away on the prison planet. When she finds out they are sick, Sofia knows that she has to go and try to make Ferix and Rorix better. It’s not just because she’s a healer, it’s because she’s still obsessed with them.

When Ferix and Rorix discover how far into their mating fever they are, they know that they are going to have to leave before they completely lose control of their dragons, and grab Sofia and drag her away, so they run. Only once it’s been discovered that they ran, right as the Zorahn invade their prison planet, does Sofia find out that they are her mates, and she’s damned if she’s going to just let them die.

I love the fact that the virgin isn’t the sacrifice to the dragons like you often see in fairy tales, instead, she’s the hero of the story. She’s strong, smart, fiesty, and will take no shit from anyone, no matter who they are. She believes what she’s doing and she believes in her mates. Dariux is really interesting in this book. He’s really interesting and very, very tricksy. It’s like he knows things because he put them in place. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Silver_dragon_-_Lars_Grant-West

I love how the commander at the hidden city got what he wanted and didn’t have to outright defy any orders. That was smart and tricky. I have a feeling that we are going to need to have that quality coming up.

Bryce’s story looks to be really interesting, after everything that has happened in this one. I can’t wait to see what Rahit’vi is going to do right now. I think everything hinges on her and her actions.

So, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check out all the books! Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-King’s Bride

Today we’re going back into Ava’s Drakoryan world. And how proud of myself do you think I am that I can remember how to spell Drakoryan? Also, my Grammarly no longer recognizes Drakoryan as a misspelled word. LOL. But, I digress. Again. Like that never, ever happens. But, that doesn’t get us to King’s Bride, does it? So let us talk dragons.

Zara was taken when her village of Branlock was destroyed by the Shadowfell. They managed to take all but her sister, Isla, who has already mated with her own dragon mates. When Zara was found wandering the woods, cold and starving, nothing was able to heal her, so Isla begged for her to be sent to the witchs. However, the evil dragons had pumped Zara full of dark magic like a Trojan Horse so that they could use her to break into the stronghold.

In the great battle to try to keep the ShadowFell out of the witchs’ mountain and away from the deep and wild magic, King Vukuris died. That means that Drakoryan are currently left without a king. The four princes, Bymir, Rargi, Yrgi, and Oneg decree that they will take Zara as bride and queen. But, naming the king isn’t as easy as picking the oldest or the one who was trueborn from Vukuris versus his brothers. No. They are going to have to battle. The princes will fight to see which has the right to the first night with Zara and to be King. To the winner goes both prizes.

Each of these books gets more and more interesting. There’s just so much more going on as we build up from where we started with Sacrifice to where we are now with King’s Bride. I love that each book gives us a new happy grouping, but that we are also getting an overarching storyline. And I totally love that we aren’t getting instant happy families. There is work that has to be done for each grouping to be happy. I can’t wait to see what the next one is going to bring with all the changes that showed up in this one.

I’m loving that Layla had twins and that one is a girl. That’s going to make some seriously interesting changes. I really love that the witches are still able to get through and tell people what’s going on. I look forward to learning more about Sabine and what she is going to do.

Poor Oneg. I both do and don’t feel sorry for him. There’s the whole he wants to be his father’s son thing going on and then the whole they are all their fathers’ sons and blood doesn’t mean all that much. I love the line that Bymir says along the lines of yes, Father treated us all as his sons, and I will treat your sons as if they are all my sons, and you will be happy that I do. I also like that Bymir was able to realize when he needed to apologize. I think that if he hadn’t done that, then Oneg wouldn’t have been able to get past his stuff.

I loved this book, just as I have loved all the Drakoryan books, and I look forward to reading new ones. Happy reading!

Megan Michaels-The Dragon Warlords

Megan is making her first appearance here on IBtP with a trio of terrific tails. And before you say, oh Clara, you misspelled tails, trust me, I did it on purpose. The 3 books are all great with a wonderful storyline, but they also have a breakout star, the tails. OMFG, the tails.

So, these books take place on the planet Trexotera, which has dragons. Thing of those dragons as warplanes, but you know, living and breathing warplanes. When the Trexoterans go to war against other planets, they take their fire-breathing dragons and go. The warlords and Commanders also carry guns and swords. While they may fight with dragons and swords, the Trexoterans are advanced with all that scifi tech we all love. Trexotera is run by King Zorander Quinn and his Queen, Gossamer. They have 2 sons and 2 daughters and one adopted son. The sons are Drayce and Cloven, with Artemis being the adopted son. The daughters’ names are Rosary and Willow.

While the story takes place primarily on Trexotera, the planet Zelora is also important. That planet is ruled by Alastair Tempest, who has twin daughters, Satin and Thistle, and at least one son, Thunder. I’m pretty sure that there is at least one more, but I haven’t checked the first book.

So, with all that, let’s talk about the books, shall we?

The first book is The Dragon’s Secret, and it’s Satin and Drayce’s book. Satin’s quiet, shy, and retiring sister Thistle is supposed to go and marry Drayce, prince of Trexotera. Satin decides that she’s going to take Thistle’s spot and go marry Drayce. That’s because she has always wanted to be a dragon warlord and ride a dragon. Her father wouldn’t hear of it, so her only way to do it is to take her sister’s place. When she gets to Trexotera, Drayce meets her and punishes her. Then he marries her. And we get to learn about the awesomeness that is a tail. Tails and spanking, pure awesome.

OK, the way that this works is that when a dragon feels a person is worthy, they gift the person and they are then turned into a warlord. One of the things to prove that they are a warlord is that they get a tail. Yup. A very flexible and talented tail. The warlords use their tails when it comes to sex. Pretty much anywhere the tail can go, it does. And at the end of it, there is a little barb that pops out when the tail owning person comes. It locks into their partner for a few minutes. Then there are Commanders who are warlords who have a dragon patch, which is a section of skin that looks and feels like dragon skin. Drayce is a Commander, and Satin becomes one as well.

Then we have The Warlord’s Priestess. Thistle is now on Trexotera and she has a new Daddy. Artemis rescued her and he knew as soon as he saw her that she was the one for him. Thistle was supposed to be the shy, quiet one, but Artemis has found out that she has quite a bit of fire in her, once she finds out that she has certain magics and can help out the dragons and their warlords. Thistle, Satin, and their friend and fellow warlord, Wish, manage to help when it comes to a huge confrontation in the war that Zelora started. Again, lots of spanking and fun tail sex. I’m in serious lust with the tails. I really want one. I mean, yeah. Imagine all the fun you could have with it.

Finally, we have Cloven’s Only Wish. Cloven and Wish’s relationship has gotten deeper. He’s her Dom, she’s his baby girl. Wish is strong, stubborn, has some issues with her temper, and very independent. The war with Zelora has heated up and Alistair has threatened the royal women of Trexotera, which means that they are all being kept under lock and key and heavy guard, which is difficult for all the women, but especially Wish, who has worked really hard to be the warlord that she is. The fact that their men are going off to war without them is really hard on all the women, and not good things happen.

Yeah, I know, it sounds vaguely vague in places, doesn’t it? That’s because if I go too much into any one book, I spoil the next one. Oh well, that means that you have to go buy them and read them. I wouldn’t read them as a standalone. They are all interconnected and if you miss one, you are going to miss out not only on the overall storyline but also the full story on each of the couples. Overall, I like the series, a lot. There are a few places that I don’t like, but that’s pretty typical. For example, I don’t really like Cloven much in the second book, but Megan rehabbed him and I liked him in his book. Even though I liked him in his book, there were a couple of times that he made me mad. It may sound like I’m picking on Cloven, but that’s just because I read his book yesterday, so he’s fresh in my mind. I’m hoping that there is more to come, I mean, Rosary and Willow should have their books too, don’t you think?

dragon

OK, I just have to say that I hate Alistair. I mean, he’s a serious prick. He hates his daughters, obviously, and he’s a jealous little prick. I thought that he was going to do terrible things to Gossamer, even more terrible than having her kidnapped and thrown into his prison. I’m pretty sure he’s not altogether in between the ears, especially after he takes the dragons.

The big punishment scene in Priestess wasn’t my fave. It wasn’t that it was hot, because it was. I understand why it was done the way that it was done, and it makes sense in the book, but for me, it took away a sense of support that I thought that the women needed. Of course, that may just be me projecting how I would feel on the characters. Of course, that’s just how I feel about it, and you may like it. And that’s totally awesome. There are probably parts that I liked that you didn’t. It all works out in the end, right?

Alright, I think that I’ve said all that I want to say today. Megan’s books aren’t on KU, but they are priced reasonably. Go check them out. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Rebel Bride

Ava is just rocking this RH gig hard. I think her Drakoryans are my fave RH heroes. Of course, that could just be because of their magic cocks. The storyline is pretty good too, so that’s could be the reason too.

Her latest book, Rebel Bride, brings us back to their world and makes things much more intense. The books aren’t really standalones, there is an overarching storyline that spans the books, although each of the books (after the first two) focus on one particular group. Each book builds on the one before, so if you are reading these, you really want to start at the first one and go through them all. You will enjoy the books a lot more if you do.

Anyway, this book features Thera the healer and the Lords of Kri’byl, Jareo, Gyrvig, Erdorin, Yrko, and Tyri. The last two boys are twins, that’s important. Thera was a woman from one of the villages who now lives in the valley that is surrounded by the mountains where all the Drakoryan lords and their brides live. The villagers were all brought there to keep them safe from the Shadowfell. The king of the Drakoryans decided that the Lords of Kri’byl should live in the village to help out the people and  keep them safe.

So, that brings us to now, roughly. Not all the villagers are happy about living where they are. Winter has come and it is cold. Since the Shadowfell burned the harvest, there just is barely enough for the people to eat. Even the Drakorayn in their castles are rationing. None of this leads to happy conditions in the village, especially as the villagers still haven’t seen the Shadowfell, so none of them quite believe that they exist. Then you get Thera, who is… angry. She is a widow. A few years before, during a winter like this, her husband and her father had gone out hunting because the Drakoryan punished their village and they had no extra food. While they were out hunting, they died. Thera blames the Drakoryan for that. I can’t blame her for that, I probably would too.

Well, because she hates the Drakoryan, she does what she can to stir up trouble. She thinks they are all liars and that they are the enemy and they have just taken away the villagers’ free will. So, she stirs and stirs and stirs until the pot comes to a boil and boils over. The Witches decree that there is only one way to make things better. Thera is to mate with the Lords of Kri’byl.

Overall, I like Thera. But, there are a few times where I really don’t like her. She knew what she was doing. I’m not sure what good she thought she was going to do though. I get being angry and wanting revenge, and I think that in her place, I probably would want revenge on the people who I blamed for my husband’s death too, but there’s a difference between revenge and cutting off your nose to spite your face. I think the guys were probably a little more patient with her than I would’ve been at times. I can’t wait to see where the next one is going to take us. It’s going to be a doozy.

calm-waters-cave-cold-464350

I can’t wait to see how the issue with Zara and the king is going to change things. The Witches being gone is going to be interesting too.

OK, that’s all I have to say today. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-War Bride

We’re back in Ava Sinclair’s world of Drakoryans, those hot, hunky dragon shifters. The first two books of the series focused on Lyla and her mates, but now we’re looking at a new bride. We still have hot Alpha dragon shifters, but we have 3 of them now, but we are also in an active war situation, which is different to the last two books. Thus the name, War Bride. See how that works? LOL.

So, our heroine is Isla. In the last book, her village was destroyed by the ShadowFell and Lyla, her mates, and one of the Lords of Za’vol found her in the bottom of the well. She had jumped in there to escape the firey breath of the bad dragons, and hadn’t been able to get out, so if they hadn’t come along, she wouldn’t have lived.

They all took her back to Lyla’s castle so that Isla could be ministered to. While there, news is given that the Drakoryans will now be able to take War Brides, instead of the way that they had been doing it. The Lords of Fa’vol are the first to be given a war bride, Isla.

So, Turin, Zyvis, and Jayx are the Lords of Za’vol and they are pretty jazzed about being able to have a bride. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a mate and who doesn’t want to have a chance to have their bloodline go on? At least in these books. The boys are trying to get Isla to warm up to them because it’s time for them to seal their mating. But first, they must have their big fight so that the order in which they are with Isla for the first time.

There are a lot of really interesting things that go on in the book. One of them is we get to see more into the ways that Drakoryan families can interact, both positively and negatively. I found that to be really interesting because we don’t always see the bad side of heroes and their families, so getting to see the ugly and how it affects a lot of things was refreshing. There are lots of things that have really whetted my appetite for the next books, and hopefully, Ava won’t make us wait for very long.

agriculture-cereal-close-up-540925

Yeah, this may look like it’s a weird thing to go with a story about dragon shifters, but trust me, when you read it, you will get it.

It’s going to be a huge change for the villagers and for the Drakoryans to have the villagers right there.

I think I know who our new grouping is going to be. If I’m right, it’s going to be explosive and I can’t wait for the fireworks to start.

OK, that’s it for this one. Go read the whole series, you won’t be sorry.

Ava Sinclair-Night of the Drakoryans

Ava Sinclair finishes off our Night of… RH grouping. She’s bringing up some more Drakoryans. Since that series is already a reverse harem, it’s not that hard to fit it right into the rest of the group. This one brings us the story of Syrene. We see her a bit in Fire Bride, talking to Lyla, so her book obviously comes before Lyla’s story. Night of the Drakoryans gives us her full story and explains why she is the way that she is in FB. Not that I’m complaining about her, I like Syrene.

So, here’s our story. Syrene lives in one of the tiny villages that is ruled by the Drakoryans, a species of dragon shifters. The Drakoryans burn the fields, limit how much the villagers can grow, and several other things. They also demand a virgin sacrifice every few years.

Syrene’s mother died when she was born. She saw Syrene breathe but three times before she died. Her dad did the best she could, and he married another woman. Syrene’s step-mother is the type that gives evil step-mothers a bad name. I mean, if she had decided to feed Syrene a poisoned apple, it would’ve been nicer. The evil cow has spent years upon years upon years squashing down Syrene as much as she can. She won’t give her clean clothes, she won’t get Syrene a brush to brush her hair, so it ends up looking like a bird’s nest. Since Syrene has raven colored hair, the cow calls it a raven’s nest. Anytime something happens in the village that Syrene’s half-brothers have done, the step-cow makes the villagers believe that Syrene is the one who did it, so no one in the village likes her. Her dad is worse than a limp noodle. He does nothing to protect Syrene at all, even when she’s beaten by her half-brothers. So, when Syrene is chosen for the sacrifice, instead of the normal mournful and somber situation, the village practically throws a party, after all, this worthless, terrible, nasty, horrible young woman is leaving, and their village will be happier. Her step-cow even tells her that with the extra acreage that they are going to get from Syrene being sacrificed is going to go towards getting something useful, a cow.

The only people who have the proper attitude when it comes time for her to leave are the priestesses. They are careful to prepare her and make her look beautiful and try to make her last hours in the village good ones. The only glitch happens when the evil one gets a chance to talk to her. Syrene got to have her say and make the stupid cow cry, so there’s that. As she walks to the Altar Rock, the villagers are like damn, maybe we might’ve done fucked up a little. Syrene though, she just ignores them like the queen that she is, and waits for the dragon. She’s ready for death and has accepted that it is come.

Edrys, Nyron, and Xarsi are the brothers who are the lords of Jo’lyn. It is their time to have a mate, and that mate is Syrene. Edrys is the one who goes to get here, and when she wakes up in his bed, she’s furious at them. She actually attacks him. When the guys don’t understand what’s going on with her, they call for the Oracle, who tells them all about the past and how she was treated. He doesn’t give them all the details, just that she’s been ground down, and hated, and she thinks she’s worthless. He also tells them that if they don’t bond with her immediately, the bloodline of Jo’lyn will die. To give them that chance, instead of each brother having his own night, the Oracle will turn one night into a long night. Their guests will think that it’s only been 1 night, but for Syrene and her boys, it will be 6 days. That will give them the time to figure out how to bond with her.

OK, I’ve looked at this, and realized that I’ve had a lot to say. Of course, this is all stuff that you will get in the first few chapters, so I’m not really spoiling anything. I don’t think, at least. As much as I like Lyla, and I really do, I relate more to Syrene. She’s been so profoundly neglected, abused, and devalued that she barely feels like a person. The long night gives each of the guys their chance to bond with Syrene, and they each go about it differently. And they go about it in a way which will meet a need that Syrene may not even know that she has. But in turn, she makes them better men.

architecture-building-castle-417274

I’ve talked a lot about the story. I think more than I usually do. Mostly that’s because I relate so much to Syrene. She’s a tough, tough woman. She went through so much, but she managed to survive, and now she’s at the point where she can thrive. Having her three mates, each of whom meets something in her and makes that section of her feel better and between the three can make her whole, has given her a place to finally be the amazing person that she is. It’s a great story, and I think it works really well when it comes the rest of the Drakoryan world. The stress in this is all internal, no outside drama or pending war, just a relationship that needs to be formed. That’s something totally different.

I have to say, I love Nyron’s justice. At least, I think it’s Nyron. I’d have to get up and go check my Kindle and I left it in the other room. And his vengeance appears not to be sated any time soon. I’m bloodthirsty enough that I took great joy in that. And so did Syrene.

OK, I’ve gone on and on and one. It’s a relatively quick read, just like the rest of the series, so you should definitely go grab it so that you can read it. Happy reading!
