WOLF HOLLOW by Nikki JeffordWolf Hollow by Nikki Jefford
Series: Wolf Hollow Shifters #1
Published by Self Published Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Suspense


A REBELLIOUS OUTCAST
Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.

A DUTIFUL PUREBLOOD
Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.

AN ATTRACTION THAT THREATENS THE FUTURE OF THE PACK
Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood.

In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.

Author Nikki Jefford takes readers into a post-apocalyptic paranormal world featuring sexy shifters, heady emotion and lots of pack politics.  Wolf Hollow introduces readers to Tabor the cocky outcast with a chip on his shoulder and Sasha a leader in the making and only pack pureblood shifter.

As the last remaining pureblood Sasha is a member of the packs’ governing council.  She’s expected to be a great leader and most importantly procreate with a respectable pureblood from another pack to strengthen the Wolf Hollow Shifters.  Sasha wants to become a great leader like her parents but she doesn’t appreciate the pressure to mate with a pureblood from members of the council and the pack.  When she begins to have feelings for Tabor the packs half breed outcast her heart becomes divided between duty and love.

Tabor knows exactly how the pack feels about his other half.  Tabor is part wolf and part wizard. He knows the council will never approve his and Sasha’s mating but he’s determined to find a way to be with the woman he loves.

Wolf Hollow is an interesting read.  Ms Jefford does a good job of creating this post-apocalyptic world where the wolves are dominant but secluded,  humans are the enemy, and evil lurks around every corner.  I liked both Sasha and Tabor. They definitely get off to a rocky start but their chemistry heats up fast. Wolf Hollow has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I like the fact that Wolf Hollow is unpredictable. I was never quite sure what was going to happen next.

THE BILLIONAIRES: THE STEPBROTHERS by Calista FoxThe Billionaires: The Stepbrothers by Calista Fox
Series: Lover's Triangle
Published by St. Martin's Press Genres: Contemporary, Erotic, Menage


 

Scarlet Drake is an insurance fraud investigator on the hunt for a missing art collection.  Everyone is a suspect including the victims’ sons.

Michael Vandenburg, known as the Wolf of Wall Street in business circles, he has no time to deal with the fraud investigator stalking him for an interview. However, she leaves him little choice and once he meets Scarlet he’s intrigued and eager to learn more about her.

Sam Reed left the high society world his family resides in after a devastating heartbreak.  He now lives in Montana working with horses.  When Scarlet crashes into his life with questions about his mother’s missing art Sam is caught off guard by his desire for her.

A powerful connection forms immediately between Michael, Scarlet and Sam but can they figure out a way to make the connection last when they live thousands of miles apart? Oh and there’s still that little fact that Scarlet is on the hunt for the missing art collection and someone out there will stop at nothing to make sure she doesn’t find the culprit.

The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers is a feast of erotic proportion with the emotion to match.

The connection between Scarlet and Michael and then Scarlet and Sam are swift and magnetic.  While the sex was great as it usually is in Ms. Fox’s writing I really enjoyed the mystery surrounding the missing artwork and the depth of emotion in Sam’s personal history.  Sam’s story yanks on the heartstrings! I love him!

I love the fact that Scarlet doesn’t let her feelings change how she does her job.  She’s persistent even when she may hurt herself in the long run.  Scarlet’s job is intriguing and brings thrilling suspense to the story.  The Billionaires: Stepbrothers is an excellent addition to the Lover’s Triangle series!

THE BIG, BAD BILLIONAIRE by Jackie AshendenThe Big, Bad Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden
Series: DeSantis Brothers
Published by Swerve Genres: Contemporary, Erotic


 

Billionaire CEO Rafe DeSantis is taking want he wants and he wants Ms. Ella Hart.  Rafe has a few anger issues. He was sent away when he was young because his parents couldn’t be bothered with him.  He left one crappy situation and landed in a worse one.  He’s all grown up and back for revenge.

Ella Hart hasn’t had the easiest life.  She lost both her parents within months of each other, became the ward of the DeSantis family and went to live with her grandmother.  She threw herself into her passion for dance.  Now she wants to attend a summer dance program in Europe but to get the funds for the trip she must go through her guardian.  Ella soon finds that Rafe DeSantis is now her guardian and he has specific requirements before he will release the money to her.

Rafe has Ella where he’s always wanted her but will his plan to seduce her end the way he’s always dreamed, or will the big bad wolf end up all alone?

Author Jackie Ashenden’s reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood is not your average fairytale.  The Big, Bad Billionaire is sexy in the sweetest of ways. Initially, I was afraid that Rafe was going to be a complete ass.  He’s an aggressive alpha with a hankering for revenge.  It soon becomes clear that Rafe’s feelings for Ella are quite intense.  He doesn’t handle his feelings like most would.  Most would ask the girl they are attracted to out on a date but Rafe decides to use extortion instead.

Ella is a quiet and reserved young woman trying to figure out life.  She is taken aback by Rafe’s proposal and the feelings he provokes within her.  It’s easy to feel deeply for both lonely characters.  The attraction between them is sensual and titillating and the plot is swift and enthralling.  The Big, Bad Billionaire is one fairytale you don’t want to miss. Prepare to be hot and bothered by one sexy alpha and the innocent little red riding hood in The Big, Bad Billionaire.

NAUTI ANGEL by Lora LeighNauti Angel by Lora Leigh
Series: Nauti Girls
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary, Erotic, Suspense

When Bliss MacKay is almost kidnapped mercenary Angel Calloway makes it her mission to protect her.  Chaya MacKay, Bliss’ mother, is none too happy with Angel.  Chaya knows Angel is hiding something from her and cannot trust her with her daughter until she knows the truth.

Reece “Duke” Duquaine is a former Army Investigator charged with keeping an eye on Angel and discovering her secrets.  The longer he’s around Angel the harder it is to deny the attraction between them.  But will Duke be able to protect Angel from herself?

The final book in the Nauti Girls series blows Author Lora Leigh’s Nauti World to pieces and then put’s it back together in true Lora Leigh fashion.

Within minutes of starting Nauti Angel I knew I was going to need some Kleenex.  I found myself mesmerized by Angel and her relationships with Chaya, Bliss and Duke.  I could not get enough and finished in one sitting.  Nauti Angel combines the perfect amount of emotion, action and hot sex.   I shed many tears and I’m sad to hear this is the final Nauti Girls book.  Angel and Duke have a rough start.  After all, women don’t usually appreciate a man trying to dig up her secrets.  However, he redeems himself when he stands by her after her secrets come to life.

The connection between Angel and Duke is passionate and exciting.  They are forced into some tough situations but always seem to make it through mostly unscathed.  Angel is a complex character and I enjoyed her journey throughout the book.  The action is intense and thrilling.  I loved the fact that we were able to spend a lot of time with all the Nauti Boys and Girls.  For me it was like a reunion.  I enjoyed finding out what they are up to now.  And the secret that Angel’s carrying around…well that’s a whopper!

Prepare yourself for another sexy hot ride from Author Lora Leigh in Nauti Angel.  The suspense, drama and sexual tension make Nauti Angel a keeper.  Author Lora Leigh outdid herself! Nauti Angel is the perfect way to end the fantastic Nauti Girls series.

GOING DARK by Monica McCartyGoing Dark by Monica McCarty
Series: LOST Platoon #1
Published by Berkley Publishing Group on LOST Platoon
Genres: Contemporary, Military, Suspense

A SEAL team goes missing in Russia, but all is not as it seems.  The surviving members of the team set off in different directions with new identities, looking for answers.

Annie Henderson is a passionate marine ecologist.  She followed her new boyfriend to Scotland to protest oil drilling.  The longer she’s around him and his friends the more suspicious she becomes.  It doesn’t take long for her inquisitive nature to get her into trouble.  Her only chance to survive this fool’s errand is the sexy but grouchy dive boat Captain, Dan Warren.

The last thing Dan needs is to get wrapped up in Anne’s problems.  He soon finds out he has no choice.  Anne’s so over her head if he doesn’t help it’s unlikely she will survive her trip to Scotland.  Can they unravel the mystery in time to save themselves or will their attraction end up getting them killed?

I absolutely Loved Going Dark!  Monica McCarty tackles military drama with her pen and gives readers one hell of a story!  Dan and Annie heat the pages with their sexy banter and intense chemistry.  The situations they land in range from funny to downright scary.  Ms. McCarty moves at a swift, exhilarating pace.  The core mystery behind the Russian mission is intriguing and I look forward to learning more about it in book two.

Ms. McCarty will have readers begging for more of her LOST Platoon series!
