Daphne was going to the Full Moon Bar in the French Quarter . The bar was owned by Angus- Daphne’s Alpha. Daphne had been back home in New Orleans for a month. She hadn’t had a chance to get out much as she was still getting settled into her new program at school. Daphne was letting loose tonight. Part of her hoped Hector was working tonight as he was the sexiest shifter Daphne had ever seen. He had rejected her four years ago but she had changed a lot. Daphne had been best friends with Leta who was Hector’s sister and she had crushed on Hector through HS. Daphne was a lupine shifter and could defend herself against most things. But lately Daphne felt like someone or something was watching her. She didn’t have any proof but she never ignored her animal ability to sense danger. When she got to the Full Moon Bar she could sens Hector looking at her and she ignored him. He was at a table with a very pretty woman. Then Daphne scented Hector near her and he said to her “ too good to say hi to me?” Hector always went out of his way to make people feel at ease. Leta is pregnant and daphne and Hector talked about that for a bt. . Hector said he was going to talk to Angus about it- Angus was his boss but he totally trusted Hector even though he was a jaguar shifter and didn’t belong to a pride. Hector was clearly aware of Daphne now. Hector moved to New Orleans to take care and be with his sister Leta- she had always been his priority. Hector asked Daphne to dance Being so close to him made it hard for Daphne to think straight. Hector may want her physically but not for the long distance he had made that clear four years ago. Although Daphne didn’t know shortly after her eighteenth birthday Hector had noticed her for more than Leta’s friend but she was so young and he was ten years older than her. But she was older now. Daphne was on the dance floor with another shifter. Hector walked straight to the dance floor and told the shifter-Jesse- to get lost. When Daphne asked why Hector did that he said he didn’t want anyone touching her but him. Daphne had tutored Troy at school and then he became obsessed with her but he was human. But now he shows up at her apartment and he is a new vampire. Hector had caught him slipping around in the shadows until he got to Daphne’s place. But Hector had already pinned him then Daphne said she new Troy. Daphne felt Troy was stalking her. She didn’t want to tell Angus because she knew what would happen to Troy. Hector tells Daphne he was staying the night. She informed him he would be sleeping in the guest room but he sleeps-just sleeps in her room.
I loved this book It was a novella but had everything it needed in it. It kinda ended in a cliffhanger but it wasn’t too bad and you at least knew where it was going and why. This was a short intense romantic read and I loved it. I loved Hector and Daphne together and how they interacted with each other. I loved the pace and plot. I read this at one sitting. I loved how protective Hector was of Daphne but also Leta. I was glad when he killed Troy. Happily I found nothing to criticize in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.
Kit Jernigan despairs of ever fitting in with her new tight-knit K9 unit. They've been through too much to open their arms to a stranger―and as mysterious fires begin raging across Monroe, she can't convince them to trust her long enough to catch the woman she knows is responsible.
Wesley March, local fire spotter, knows Kit is right, and he's willing to help her prove it. But the more time they spend together, the closer they get...and the more danger they're in. A member of the K9 unit's inner circle is determined to get revenge―no matter who gets burned in the process.
This time, it's personal.

Strong, convincing characters easily draw readers into this thrilling and explosive romantic suspense that keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next. The romance between Kit and Wesley is sweet and charming as both seem a bit hesitant in moving forward but the chemistry between sizzles with electrical intensity pulling them closer.

There is quite a few emotional concerns that have to be overcome as well as all the danger surrounding them which makes this romance quite interesting.

The well-developed story and characters is full of vivid details that make it easy for readers to connect and become caught up in each and every aspect as well guaranteeing that readers can picture each and every scene which in return means readers become unable to put the book down. I was certainly one that couldn’t put it down and I fell hard for Wes and his robot cat and I really like the explosive final battle with the bad guy as it had such realistic events taking place.

Better than I expected. The h knows what she is, and is trying to hide while singing in a band of crooks who use her abilities to enthrall people for various reasons. They have the brilliant idea of doing this to dragons. How they know these are dragons is not said.
First Dragon finds himself remaining on the mortal plain on a bet or something. The h's attempt works on everyone but him. He finds her fascinating.
Of interest here is a reader's guide of sorts - it's short, basically outlining the septs and their leaders. The blue dragon is still unattached. Guess the series isn't through after all.
Also included is a short on Jim's vacation that wasn't. Poor thing got sent to the Akasha by a vengeful Guardian in training. He made his way out, but didn't get to spend any time with Celia the Corgi.
My thing with this book is that it wasn't bad, it just didn't need to exist. To be honest, this was 244 pages of pretty much nothing happening. It's pretty much an entire book on just character growth and it was pretty unnecessary.
Gemma and co get stuck in Bruce's house because of a hurricane and she finds out her dad and Karen are getting married. And because the entirety of the second book didn't happen apparently since no one seems to have learned anything from it, she and Hallie go back to do everything they did in book 2 except it's to their parents.
And literally everyone was telling them to take their heads out of their ass and just let their parents be happy and Gemma essentially went, I hear you and I kind of agree but I'm gonna do it anyways. Like the entire time she was scheming, she knew she was doing the wrong thing, she didn't even want to do it, but she just kept going. And the way her and Hallie made it sound, you'd think capers would ensue but literally only two things happened and the second event was the only dealbreaker one for their parents relationship.
Like the entire Reverse Parent Trap plot didn't really go anywhere, to be honest, their parents weren't even in the house with them most of the time, and the rest of the time they were too busy making sure things went smoothly because of the hurricane.
The Ford plotline was dragged out for way too long, for suspense purposes and nothing else obviously, to the point where it was just annoying. Like the dumb pining and stuff would've been cut down significantly. Like the scene at the end where the two of them do get together was cute and all but it could've happened at literally any other time.
The rest of the characters were pretty uninteresting like nothing happened with them, they were mostly there because they had to be. Gwenyth was home the entire time to literally no one's surprise, it was fairly obvious.
I guess the only thing that we really got out of this book was that Hallie and Gemma finally got over their problems and grew closer since they were gonna be related and all. But all in all, anything worth keeping around in this book is so small that it could've been added onto book 2 with like an extra hundred pages or so and it would've been a nice wrap-up. So, like I said, there wasn't really any need for this book. It wasn't bad, it just didn't serve a purpose.
