THE BILLIONAIRES by Calista FoxThe Billionaires by Calista Fox
Series: Lover's Triangle #1
Published by St. Martin's Press Genres: Contemporary, Erotic

 

Wine Country is about to catch fire in The Billionaires…

 

Calista Fox has a hit with The Billionaires! Rogen, Jewel and Vin make for one hell of a fiery read! The Billionaires take passion to new heights as they discover the truth behind their family’s feud and their feelings for each other.  The Billionaires is an erotic feast! However, it’s much more than just hot sex there is an excellent story built around Rogen, Jewel and Vin’s sinfully delicious attraction and the emotional obstacles standing in their way.

 

The backdrop of The Billionaires is beautifully described by Ms. Fox. She takes the reader into wine country and makes you feel like you’re about to have the tasting of a lifetime. I really enjoyed Jewel’s fierce personality, Rogen’s sensuality and Vin’s uncompromising hunger.  Ms. Fox gives us three strong characters that are determined to fight for each other and everything they believe in.  Rogen and Vin will bewitch the reader as they seduce Jewel.  There are plenty of titillating sexual situations but romance is the star here.

 

I am Joyfully Recommending The Billionaires for the month of April. I cannot wait to read the next books in the series.

DARK PURSUIT by Jessica Jarman, Bronwyn Green, Kris Norris, & Paige PrinceDark Pursuit by Bronwyn Green, Jessica Jarman, Kris Norris, Paige Prince
Published by Self Published Genres: Paranormal


 

Rising Blood by Bronwyn Green

 

The hunt is on…

 

Newly reluctant partnered Vampire Hunters, Harper Yovanoff and Elliot Zielin are in hot pursuit of a very powerful, dangerous vampire who has maliciously been targeting and turning hunters into the very thing they hunt.  And, to complicate matters, a strong attraction is rapidly brewing between Harper and Elliot.  With many lives on the line, will they be able to put their conflicts aside and work together to put a stop to the evilness at hand.

 

If you are looking for a vampire storyline filled with a kick-ass heroine and an overly confident hero, then Rising Blood is just what the doctor ordered.  I will admit there were times where I wanted to smack Elliot upside the head because of his self-assured attitude.  I really enjoyed watching Elliot win Harper’s heart even before she consciously admits her true feelings.  My only request is I wish the plot could have been longer, lengthwise, for more character development.

 

 

Tempted To Death Jessica Jarman

 

Secrets come to light…

 

Tara Wilcox is hiding a secret and because of it she runs away from the two men she loves – Paranormal Hunters, Luca Castell and Oliver Gordon.  Now Tara is back and reveals her secret to her lovers.  Will Luca and Oliver welcome Tara back with open arms or will they destroy her because of the monster that hides within?

 

Overall, I liked Tempted To Death; however, I did not feel the sincere connection between Tara, Luca, and Oliver.  Whereas, the love is believable between Luca and Oliver; Tara almost feels like a third wheel in their threesome relationship. I can tell that each man loves her for who she is and that she loves them; however something was missing for me.  Nevertheless, the plot is fascinating, the sexual encounters are super-hot and the characters are amiable.  Note: this is a MMF and it contains MM love scenes.

 

 

Grave Measures by Kris Norris

 

Not all souls go peacefully …

 

Supernatural Hunters, Arrynn Baker and Daniel Cartwright now have first-hand knowledge of what it feels like to be a victim of an obnoxious supernatural being.  Daniel is being hunted by the ghost of his dead girlfriend.  Dealing with this issue brings Daniel and Arrynn closer together awakening their secret desire to cross the professional line and become lovers.  Will Daniel and Arryan be able to banish his dead girlfriend’s spirit once and for all before she succeeds in completing her mission of bringing Daniel with her into afterlife?

 

This novel gives me food for thought.  Grave Measures is edgy and interesting with some chilling tidbits thrown into the mix.  The plot is not like a horror movie type of scary per say, but it does have a things that go bump in the night type of flair.  Arrynn is my kind of heroine.  She is no shrinking violet and refuses to allow anyone, whether living or not, to take her man.  Likewise, Daniel is a strong, yet honest type of guy who is unwillingly drawn into a severe situation.  Together they are a force to be reckoned with both in and out of bed.  All in all, a very good read.

 

 

Next Lifetime by Paige Prince

 

Another chance at everlasting love…

 

Sarah, now known as Caitlin, is a witch/vampire hybrid.  In order to save her then lover, William, from the evil clutches of Bastian, a malicious vampire sire, Sarah casts a spell for him to be return to her in the future.  Fast forward a hundred years later, William is reborn as Lucas, a very powerful vampire hunter who is determined to rid the world of all vampires.  And, to make matters worse, Bastian is back with a vengeance determined to finish what he started over a century ago.  Will there be a happily-ever-after for Caitlin and Lucas when he discovers she vampire?  And more importantly, will they be able to get rid of Bastian once and for all?

 

The concept of this novel is good versus evil along with the desire to never give up.  Next Lifetime is a profound story that will pull at your heart.  I cannot imagine what it would be like to have eternal life with the one you love by your side.  Paige Prince does a great job of expressing it.  I sincerely sense the turmoil that Sarah/Caitlin feels at the loss of her beloved, not once but twice, before he is reborn a third time in the form of a very powerful Lucas.  The road to the rediscovery of love and trust is a difficult one, especially for Lucas.  Since she has fought the battle for so long, Caitlin never once gives up on Lucas – even when he is trying to terminate her because she is not human.  This is one tale not to be missed.  Enjoy!

SHARED FOR LOVE by Nancy CorriganShared for Love by Nancy Corrigan
Series: Kagan Wolves #6
Published by Self Published Genres: Paranormal


 

Ethan is in love with two people – Hannah and Noah.  His heart and his wolf are demanding that he claim both as his mates; but, how will each of them feel about sharing him with the other.

 

For six months Hannah has been chasing after Ethan.  While he has shown interest by taken her on dates and held her hand, she could not understand why he has yet to kiss her.  That is until she meets Noah and everything comes to light.  Is Hannah willing to share herself with two men?

 

For fifteen years, Noah has secretly shared a bed with Ethan.  All is well until Hannah enters the picture.  Instantly knowing that the three of them are destined to be in an eternal love triangle, will Noah be able to persuade Ethan and Hannah?

 

Wow! Shared For Love is one thrilling, intense book that I had the pleasure of reading.  From the start, the plot pulls you in and does not let go until the very end.  The bond between Ethan, Hannah, and Noah is immediate once all three come together for the first time.  They are an even match for each other – true mates to the fullest.  All three share strong, alpha-type personalities; yet, they are well-defined within each own right.  For a minute there, I was not sure if their wolves would allow a love triangle to develop; but, in the end all ends well.  Did I mention, whether as a twosome or threesome, the sexual encounters are sizzling hot and erotic.  So, be aware that constant fanning your heated face will occur on numerous occasions.  You cannot go wrong with Shared For Love.

 

This novel can be read as a standalone.
