Furious and threatening, Iverson storms into Catalina's house, demanding satisfaction, but the infamous rake has finally met his match. With her cool demeanor and intense intelligence, Catalina heats his blood like no other woman in his notorious history...

In one word “Awesome” I fell in love with this book from the very beginning.  This was my first book of Ms. Grey’s and it will find a place on my keeper shelf and I will also be buying up all the rest of them.  If you want to be able to laugh at the characters one minute and call them names the next this is for you.  The energy between Catalina and Iverson is so electric you will be scorched.  And then of course there is her aunt who is a barrel of fun as well.  If you love historical then this is a must read.

Review: Sevin (The Lords of Satyr book 7) by Elizabeth Amber


Review: Sevin (The Lords of Satyr book 7)
Author: Elizabeth Amber
ISBN: 9780758241313
Publisher: Aphrodisia Kensington
Genre: Historical Paranormal Erotica
Format: Trade Paperback
Price: $14.00


The Beautiful…

Strong-willed and deeply sensual, Lord Sevin Satyr indulges freely in the delights of the flesh within the luxurious chambers of his infamous Salone di Passione, the talk of 1880s Rome. Surely the Humans who would deny his kind their pleasures can be persuaded to share them in a new Salone he plans just for them—above all, the beautiful Alexa Patrizzi. Fiery and spirited, she is made for sin…

And The Damned

A pulsing darkness grips the mind of Sevin’s younger brother Lucien, the unwilling possessor of powers he cannot control. Held in the Roman catacombs as a sex slave until he was eighteen, he finds refuge in the ElseWorld—and sexual healing in the arms of Natalia, a maenad , who thinks Luc too beautiful, too young for her. But when his mirrored eyes heat to molten silver at her touch, she can only love him more…

I have been a fan of Elizabeth Amber and her Satyr men from the very beginning and was not disappointed in her latest installment.  Not only do you get Sevin’s story but you also get troubled brother Lucien’s which I will admit I have been looking forward to reading his story and discover his secrets. If you are looking for a sexual story written in another time and takes mythology to another level you will not be disappointed in Sevin.  Elizabeth will take you into a world that it will seem to jump off the pages.  I cannot wait to see what Ms. Amber writes next.

Review: Enraptured (Eternal Guardians Book 2) by Elisabeth Naughton


Review: Enraptured (Eternal Guardians Book 2)
Author: Elisabeth Naughton
ISBN: 9781402262128
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Format: Paperback
Price: $7.99
 
Orpheus—To most he's an enigma, a devil-may-care rogue who does whatever he pleases whenever he wants. Now this loose cannon is part of the Eternal Guardians—elite warriors assigned to protect the human realm—whether he likes it or not.

Orpheus has just one goal: to rescue his brother from the Underworld. He's not expecting a woman to get in the way. Especially not a Siren as gorgeous as Skyla. He has no idea she's an assassin sent by Zeus to seduce, entrap, and ultimately destroy him.

Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. There's a reason Orpheus feels so familiar to her, a reason her body seems to crave him. Perhaps he's not the man everyone thinks... The truth could reveal a deadly secret as old as the Eternal Guardians themselves.

This series just keeps getting better if that is even possible, but I also had a soft spot for Orpheus.  Take a stroll through Ms. Naughton’s world and fall in love with the Guardians.  Full of romance with an edginess that will hold you completely engrossed and very entertaining.

HE SHOULD BE SEEN, BUT NEVER TOUCHED...

Kerry Smithson's modeling career ensures that she will be admired from afar, which is essential since mere human touch sparks blinding pain and terrifying visions.

EVERY GOOD MODEL NEEDS A HEAVENLLY BODYGUARD...

Dante Coltari is hired to protect Kerry from those who know who she is—or more importantly what she is—and want her dead because of it. Nothing could have prepared him for the challenge of keeping her safe. But, strangely, his lightest touch brings her exquisite pleasure rather than pain, and Dante and Kerry have an otherwordly connection that might just pull them through.

Sara Humphreys has done it again!!  Another sizzling, passion filled book that will keep you engrossed that before you know it you have finished the story and begging for more.  The connection between Kerry and Dante is entertaining.  I cannot wait for the next installment in this series, this is definitely a must read.
