She was wrong. They’re in the city, and they’re after her. On a mission to find and eliminate the threat to their people, Mateo couldn’t have picked a worst time to find his mate. But when Sloane appears at the top of the enemy’s hit list, he must find a way to complete his mission, and keep her safe.

Despite being a shorter length this story provides all of our favorite paranormal romance ingredients: supernatural species, hot alpha male, action, steamy love scenes, and of course some witty humor as our newly mated couple learns the ins and outs of becoming “we”. I really enjoyed how Sloane and Mateo knew they were mates right from the first sentence of this book and they don’t seem to need a lot of time to adjust to this fact. I also enjoyed that they were both dragon shifters so there wasn’t a need for a lot of explanation from either of the main characters. This left a lot more time […]

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? The Review Lure of the Dragon was a well-written story that drew me in from the start.

King This book was provided to the reviewer for free in return for a review.   Synopsis Studying ancient Norse mythology is supposed to be hard, but no one warned Caroline it would be life or death. Caroline Capello's carefully planned life turns upside-down when Loki, the enigmatic and irresistibly sexy Norse god, appears in her apartment, cuts her clothes off, and rocks her studious world all night long. The next morning, she's convinced she imagined it all, a result of working too hard and getting too little sleep--until she sees her clothes on the floor, cut down the middle. As Loki's unpredictable visits grow more intense and Caroline is pulled into a dangerous world of gods and magic, she turns to the ancient myths she studies for guidance.

And does she dare trust him with her heart? When Loki's appearances stop and Caroline's other-worldly dreams hint at a dark future, concern for her lover leads her to Val-Hall, the ancient home of Óðinn's army, where she must put everything she has learned to the test.
