Bruno diCesare lives alone by necessity, not choice. An experiment performed by Leonardo da Vinci, who believed having a dual DNA would grant a person immortality, used magic to render Bruno a chimera-the head of a lion, body of a dragon. The only time he can mingle with people is during Carnevale, ten glorious days of masked anonymity, frivolity, and intimacy.

Melina Weaver learned fire dancing to enliven her dull existence. Her long hours at the lab leave no time for a social life. For ten days at Carnevale, she can pretend to be someone else. Someone sexy and daring, who lives on the edge.

Once she meets Bruno, her wish comes true, but everything goes terribly wrong. Beneath Bruno’s costume lurks an alpha male, but is he dangerous? Worse, can she return to an employer who sells her research to the military to make an army of efficient killers? Her only hope may lie with the man she’s just met but has never seen.

Club Heat, 1

Independent bartender Kit Blank has a problem lately, and it comes in the form of Jax Heart, the sexiest and most sophisticated vampire in the entire city.

While she’s more than happy to hit the sheets, chat it up, and spend all her free time with Jax, the thought of actually committing to him leaves a bad taste in her mouth. Worse yet, as much as she digs Jax, he’s been completely turning her off lately by pushing her toward a real commitment…the kind that comes with fangs. Kit is torn. Does she really love Jax, or is she truly only ready for a boy toy?

But it appears she may have underestimated Jax, who shows up at Club Heat to surprise her in a whole new ensemble…leather jacket, hand ties and all. The only problem is, when Kit’s ready for round two, Jax doesn’t actually remember any of it. Is Jax lying? Has Kit gone crazy? Or are they both suffering from a mysterious case of double vision?

Be Warned: menage sex (MFM), sex toys, anal sex, bondage

Review:

Sex: 3

Plot:1

Overall Enjoyment: 2

I am not quite sure I understand the metaphysics behind the changes in Jax. I can see how the bad boy routine is a very popular turn on for women, but I didn’t understand the purpose of the events. If the attitude and the change was just to drive the characters to sex then okay, flimsy but okay. I can’t say I liked this one, but I don’t dislike it. I would have gone a different direction for more stable and believable HEA or HFN. I would not recommend this one because it just left me befuddled. Maybe if its gets a revamp the author can them add about 10k words to it to round out the story more.

Blurb:

Jennifer Dixon never expected to meet Patrick Thompson let alone get pregnant with his baby. One night of passion together should never have had consequences, but it did.

Patrick never forgot the woman who saw beneath the playboy exterior. When he discovers his mystery woman is pregnant with his child, he sets out to woo her. He wanted her then and he intends to keep her now.

However, outsiders are determined to break them apart. One night, Patrick storms out leaving Jennifer broken-hearted. In that one moment their lives are changed forever.

Only when it’s too late does Patrick realize what really matters to him. Can he win back Jennifer’s love when everything is set against it.

Review:

This was a decent book at best. It was predictable very unrealistic, I couldn’t even imagine that happening and dialogue was cheesy. Why would a woman life has been run by her family suddenly grow a backbone. However, she may have grown a backbone against her family but she never grew one against the man she supposed to love. He treats her like a servant. Patrick comes across as an arrogant self-serving bastard. I would never fall in love with this person; I don’t even want to talk to this person, let alone have him be the father of my child.

Blurb:

Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges . . .

Leila’s psychic abilities have been failing her,and now she isn’t sure what the future holds. If that weren’t enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she’s also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won’t admit that he loves her.

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity . . .

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the cross hairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust–the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other, or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity . . .

Review:

I have to say I wasn’t very happy with this book. It seems that it took a very long time for the plot to get where we’re going. Towards the end, the ending of the chapters seemed like the end of the book. But it kept going. By the time that I actually got to the end of the book my brain was confused. The story climaxed it had a satisfying ending but it kept going yes they were and resolve the issues but that could have taken it into the next book. I was stopped it at maybe three quarters into the actual book and it would have been fine for me.

The sex in the book seems forced lacking that moment or “je ne ce quoi”. Yes I know that was the way he had to treat her to make this story evolve. It still does not make it right. It just shows that women stay will put up with anything. And I don’t like that Leila had to settle.

This whole book was just frustrating for me from the beginning to the end. Don’t get me wrong I love the characters I love the author I just didn’t like this book as much as her others.

Bear Necessities

Halle Shifters

by Dana Marie Bell

Paranormal Romance, shifters

Sex: 5

Plot: 4.5

Overall Enjoyment: 5

To hold onto his love, he must release his beast…

Once a Bear sets his mind on a mission, it’s best to stay out of his way. Alexander “Bunny” Bunsun is that Bear.
Something’s not right with his cousin Chloe, and he’s come to Halle, PA, to sort it out, turn his Harley around and head home to Oregon. Until an enticing scent lures him into the local tattoo shop.

There she is. An inked, Southern-drawled she-Wolf with lime-green hair. His perfect mate.

The Tabitha Garwood’s rotten day just got worse. Her Outcast status makes her a target for harassment with alarming regularity. And now, in the middle of a root touch-up, looking like a half-melted Skittle, she’s met her destined mate. The only upside? She finally has a protector in the form of a huge, tattooed, shaved-head Bear who vibrates with carefully restrained power.

When Chloe is left for dead and Tabby is threatened, only Alex can keep his growing family safe. Giving Tabby the loving
Home she needs, though, could come at a price—Alex must give up the control he’s worked a lifetime to attain.

Which means someone could die at the hands—and claws—of his beast.

Review

I absolutely loved the fact a bear shifter is named Bunny. I can’t get enough of Dana’s books. Well since the Halle shifter series is pretty much done, I figured what would it hurt to try her other shifter series. I like the brothers and the sisters from another mother. Together I have a feeling they are going to reek havoc in that little town. Can’t wait to read some more.

He’ll fulfill her wildest fantasies… but only if she believes.

Leo Dunne has been searching his entire life for the one person born just for him. He
finds her working in his own company, but the shy little Ruby Halloway constantly hides
from him. He hatches a devilish plot with her best friend to bring her out of her shell,
and the result proves her desire is more than a match for his own.

Ruby has had the hots for her boss for some time now, but she knows business and
pleasure shouldn’t mix. While that can’t stop a girl from dreaming, she sticks by her guns
and does her best never to be alone with the handsome CEO. Until the company
masquerade party, where she discovers a passion with him that leaves a mark on her
soul.

A family emergency calls Leo away, and rather than spend one night out of Ruby’s arms,
he convinces her to go with him. With his brother’s life on the line, it’s vital she learn how
to deal with who, and what, her new lover really is…before it’s too late.

Warning: This book contains explicit sex, graphic language, some violence, a
bit of bondage, and a Sidhe Lord determined to claim and protect what is his.

Review:

Okay aside from the new cover, the book was WOW.  I really don’t care for the new cover. 😦 If I had my way we would be seeing the old one, which may not have been too accurate but it was better than this haggard guy that looks like he ate a child or two. So to express my displeasure of the new cover I have put a sad face on it and make put it at the right of the page.. Why? Because I can. *insert evil laugh here*

GIR!!!
