Nothing is forbidden to this elite corps of shifter bodyguards and private investigators…except falling in love.
 
Good dragons? Bad dragons? Twenty-four hours ago, private chef Tessa Byrne didn’t know about the terrifying world of shifters. Now she knows too much, like the fact that a ruthless dragon lord is determined to claim her — forever. Tessa flees to Maui, where sunny skies, swaying palms, and a handsome stranger conspire to play tricks with her heart. Can she truly trust Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters to save her from a gruesome fate?

 

Don’t trust a human, and never, ever fall in love with one. Those are lessons Kai learned the hard way. But Tessa is different. Her emerald eyes mirror the mysterious pendant she wears, and her flaming red hair makes his heart race. Is his inner dragon just greedy for a new kind of treasure, or is Tessa his destined mate?

 

A paranormal romance with adult content / 50,000 words.

Lure of the Dragon is a wonderful start to a new series by Anna Lowe. It’s full of suspense, mystery, and romance.

 

Lure of the Dragon shows us that everyone has secrets and that not ever supernatural is good. The story was a little slow to start and it took me sometime to get into, but once I did, I enjoyed it.

 

We are introduced to a band of brothers, men who severed in a special military unit together. These men have been through a lot and have formed a family. I feel in love with the shifter brothers that were introduced. Each one is unique, has their own personalities, and pasts. I’m curious to learn about each one and see who their mates will be.

 

I loved how the author brought all her characters together and that we are still in the same world with ties to Twin Moon. The plot has a few twists and surprises.

 

I do have to point out that the first kiss between Tessa and Kai, Holy Smokes it’s smoking.

 

It was great to get our first taste of dragons, good and bad, fated mates and lost treasures. I’m curious to see where this new series goes and how it all unfolds.

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars

best of three!
Shadow's Moon - Jami Gray
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three. To better follow THIS book, you should at least read book two, Shadows Soul. BUT for THAT book to make sense, read need to read book one, Shadows Edge. SO basically, what I'm telling is, read books one and two before this one. And this is the best of the three!! I said to someone, just last week, I haven't had a good werewolf book in a while, and then I get two in a row! I need to take a minute, before I write this review, because I fear I will gush. And gushing does not a good review make. So, deep breath, and here we go! Xander was gravely injured in book two, fighting the Soul Stealer. To save her, Warrick, head Alpha of the North Western Kyn, bonded with her. Neither one is very happy with the idea, but as time goes on, they come around. Mostly. Warrick's wolf is dead against Xander continuing on her career path with the Wraith. When the whole of the Motoki Pack is threatened first by Bitten wolves, and then by someone much much closer to home, Warrick and Xander have to learn to work WITH their bond, not against it. Both Xander and Warrick have a say here, and that's what I missed most in books one and two. Neither is used to compromise, neither is used to having to rely on another and in places, it's truly painful reading. Warrick especially, is pushed to the very limits of his capability and he falls so beautifully, so painfully, so...oh, I can't find the right words! When Raine and Gavin soul bonded, it was so beautifully written. But when Xander and Warrick finally give in here?? I cried. I really did. These two have so much love for each other, that was there, way before they bonded, over the past year they had been together their love had grown, but neither was quite ready to admit it. You cheer when Warrick lets Xander in, then scream at him when he throws his walls up again. You totally feel for Raine when ...well,...things happen. You feel for the whole Pack when more things happen. You get an inkling of what things might be like in the future for the Wraith. For the whole of the Kyn, especially if their existence is revealed to the humans. And you get an epilogue. An epilogue that throws you totally for a loop, because you have no idea what it all means and how it fits into the next book, of even how it fits into the grand scheme of things! The head of the House of Demons has her story next. Before this one, I wasn't looking forward to that one so much, but with the way it all happened here, things are blown wide open for Natasha. Struggling not to gush, so, I'll just say this. READ. THE. DAMN. BOOK. Hell, read the series. 5 stars, but If I could give it more, I really would! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

ONE JOB OPENING
TWO SHIFTERS APPLY...
SPARKS FLY


Dragon shifter Chloe Arish is hell-bent on becoming a Boston firefighter. She uses her Irish charm and fake documents to score an interview, knowing she has to work every bit as hard as a man-harder if she wants their respect.

 

Born into a legendary Boston firefighting family, phoenix shifter Ryan Fiero can't possibly let someone best him on the training course or the job. He'd never hear the end of it. When a feisty new recruit comes along who's determined to do just that, Ryan plots to kick her out-until their sizzling chemistry turns explosive...

My Wild Irish Dragon was a delightful read.

 

Chloe and Ryan both want the same job at the safe fire station, but only one position is open. This leads to the two competing for the position. But, the chief finds funding to hire both since both are so well qualified. You think they would stop their competition now that both got the job, but their rivalry continues. Soon they learn to respect the other, become friends, and fall for one another. The banter and humor was enjoyable between these two. Their relationship felt honest and deep as it developed throughout the story.

 

I also enjoyed several side characters and family members. I didn’t care so much for Chloe’s cousin Aiden and his storyline. I was a bit shocked that when he did something completely against Mother Nature’s rules their was no repercussions at all.

 

The only thing that still gets to me and this bothered me in the first book too. Why can’t the shifters or supernaturals smell that someone is a shifter or a supernatural? They can use other aspects of their abilities when in human form. So, why can’t they use this one? This would clear things up and help.

 

I had a pleasant time with My Wild Irish Dragon. I liked that two noble paranormals where trying to make a difference in their community. I also enjoyed the humor that was brought into the storyline.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

ARC Review: Drakon’s Prey (Blood of the Drakon #2) by N.J. Walters ~ Giveaway/Excerpt
Drakon's Prey (Blood of the Drakon) - N.J. Walters

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

 

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

 

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

I LOVE dragons and can’t get enough. This was a fantastic addition to the series.

 

Drakon’s Prey has plenty of danger, suspense, and smoking hot romance plus sexy dragon brothers. I loved Tarrant! He was just so amazing and sweet. Valeriya I adored her. She had a horrible childhood, but she found away to distance herself from the family business. I loved that she is an artist and an author. Such a sweet heart, but still strong and loyal. The chemistry between Valeriya and Tarrant was hot and steamy. I loved watching them fall for each other.

 

As for the Knights, they won’t give up, but neither will the Drakons. War is inevitable and the Knights won’t see them coming.

 

I’m in love and can’t wait for the next installment. If you are a fan of dragons, then I highly recommend this series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Strange as it was, she trusted Tarrant more than she’d ever trusted anyone in her life. Common sense told her everything was mostly likely a ruse and he was most likely working for her sister or another of the Knights. But her intuition was saying just the opposite.

 

“Just what I said.” Tarrant sprawled on the other leather sectional and spread his arms across the back, taking up most of it with his big body. He might be living underground, but there was nothing basement-like about this place. It was gorgeous.

 

“I can’t let you go. Your sister or one of the Knights would grab you in a heartbeat.”

 

“So you took me in order to protect me?” She slowly released the grip on her legs and slid them back down.

 

He shook his head. “Wish I could say that was totally true, but I can’t. That’s a side benefit. I took you in case you were working with the Knights and had information. If you didn’t have information, I thought you might be valuable.”

 

Wow, that was brutally honest and painful to hear. “I see.”

 

Tarrant huffed out a breath and sat forward, resting his forearms on his legs. “No. No, you don’t see at all. You’re dangerous to me. I should take you back and let the Knights deal with you.”

 

Her stomach dropped and she thought she might be ill. She hadn’t realized how safe she felt here with Tarrant until he threatened to take it away. She swallowed before she could speak . “And will you? Take me back?”

 

“Never.” The single word dropped between them like an anvil.

 

She licked her dry lips. “Never is a long time.”

 

One corner of his mouth kicked up. “Time is something I have plenty of.”

 

 

 

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

Rebel Kato (Shifters of the Primus #1) by Elyssa Ebbott Review
Rebel Kato (Shifters of the Primus Book 1) - Elyssa Ebbott

He takes what he wants. And he wants me.

When we run out of fuel hundreds of light years from Earth, our only hope is a nearby planet. There’s just one problem: it’s home to the most savage aliens in the galaxy.

But when the Primus warriors board our ship, they haven’t come to take all of us. Their prince just wants me. And if he doesn’t choose me as his mate, he’s going to kill everyone I’ve ever known.

Kato’s a deadly alpha shifter with shimmering golden skin and a tendency to leave bodies in his wake. He’s dangerous and has an ego as big as his golden spear. But does he just want a few nights of passion, or a woman to call his princess?

When murderous factions try to keep us apart, I will have more to worry about than just surviving the irresistible prince’s touch. I will have to choose between the danger of being beside him or the certain death that awaits outside his protection.

He has protected me so far. But when his king demands my death, will my prince rebel to save me?

 

 

 

Review


The world was interesting. Trees growing up more than a mile from a watery bottom. But we get no real details of how this world works.

 

Everything makes no sense. Motivation. Whatever. Actual love story. Nah.

 

There is a base here but the book is too frantic to develop anything I want to spend time with in the end.
