As the son of a demon king James Sinclair has certain obligations, a job to steer humans on a downward course.  When he’s not working James invariably gets into trouble with his twin brother.  Their latest jest was to steal a prized egg from the Dragon Queen.  The snatch worked flawlessly until they were caught.  To pay for his part in the fun James will spend the next ten days at the mercy of the dragon prince Teban, his best friend.

 

Coming to the aid of a seemingly helpless teenager in the lower realm on the way to Teban proves to be very wrong indeed when she turns out to be one of the dreaded Havoc.  Barely conscious from the girl’s tender care James is saved by her aunt of all things, who takes a liking to the badly bleeding and bitten demon.  As Teban shows up after tracking the missing demon aunt Kihra decides the dragon prince will make an excellent mate as well.  James and Teban believe that they are humoring the sexy Havoc female.  Eventually they will realize Kihra is serious, completely serious.

 

Hot as…well, hell, Havoc & Hell: A Dragon’s Prize brings together three unlikely beings with passionate results.  Easy going James, intense Teban, and ruthless Kihra will challenge each other and destroy anyone who tries to tear them apart.  Their confusion as to who’s in charge brings a layer of humor to the unique romance.  Scorching heat between the characters keeps the love story strong, but mention of levels of hell, demon types, and such is unfortunately sometimes hard to follow.

It’s more than chemistry, more than love: it’s electric. Remy Davis does her best to live in the now, never sure when she’ll be forced to run again. She loves her work at Buchanan Investigations—there’s no better place for a woman with her special talent for controlling electricity—but she knows better than to let down her guard. And then everything changes when a man from her past, the man she never stopped loving, reappears in her life. J.D. never thought he’d see the girl he’d once loved, the woman he thought had betrayed him. The chemistry he and Remy once felt is as strong as ever. Old wounds need time to heal, but time is running out on second chances. A villain bent on returning them to his twisted experiments has resurfaced. But this time J.D. won’t let Remy face the madman alone; he’ll harness every ounce of his abilities to rescue the one woman who turns electric in his arms. Warning: There are misunderstandings, angst, and love lost and regained. Sparks fly when two special people with extraordinary abilities overcome science gone awry and some freakishly villainous bad guys.

Remy Davis is a computer specialist at Buchanan Investigations.  Remy came to Buchanan after a few years on the run from her past because the owner knew part of the very past she was running from.  Remy is also very special because she can control electricity in ways that amazes most scientists.  For the most part, even while having to watch her back constantly, Remy is enjoying her life.  One thing Remy hates is the fact that the love of her life believes she betrayed him to save herself.  Not exactly the way it happened.

J.D. Morgan was rescued from his time in hell, being a lab rat for a mad scientist who wanted to use his powers.  The only bright light for J.D. during that time was the scientist’s niece who was just as powerful as he was.  Together they were twice as much, both with their powers and with the budding romance that was developing between them. That is until the night J.D. was rescued and Remy showed that what they had was an illusion.  Now J.D. works with Westlake, first as an IT guy and now as an agent. 

To say that sparks flew when Remy and J.D. were face-to-face for the first time since that fateful night, really put it mildly.  But when a person alerts the owner of Westlake that the ISPP (Institute for the Study of Psychic Phenomena) is starting back up and the madman that ran it the first time is at it again.  It really is a job that only Remy and J.D. can investigate.  After all, ISPP’s biggest discovery was based on their joint powers.  Both Remy and J.D. know that capturing them again is job number one.  Working together is one of the hardest things they have done, first because J.D. isn’t sure he can trust Remy and later because their love has sprung back hotter than ever.  The danger is evident when someone tries to kidnap Remy.  The full truth of that horrible night is now out and J.D. is determined to protect Remy, even if he might not come out of this battle alive. The dust is settling and it’s going to take the full powers of the two psychic investigation agencies to bring Remy and J.D. out if this and give them a second chance at their future together.

Sometimes it’s during a nightmare when your brightest hope is discovered.  Two people learn this when their brightest hope is the love they found in Love in Electric Blue.  J.D. is still hurting years later when he faces Remy after being rescued from a lab working with psychics.  Remy has never stopped loving J.D., but never expected to have a second chance at that love.  I was amazed at just what J.D. and Remy lived through in that lab, but even more so when they put it all on the line yet again to take down the madman who was behind that lab and their captivity.  I hurt with both Remy and J.D. as the truth about what really happened the night they both escaped from the lab, although they each had a very different experience.  The depth of the love between J.D. and Remy was brought forth in their final struggle to destroy that which threatened them.  Love in Electric Blue is equal strengths of passion and suspense, with touches of psychic abilities that make the Westlake Enterprises series so interesting.  The struggle that J.D. and Remy had in finding their forever after makes this a must read.

Retired agents of the PWP or the Psychic Warfare Program are forging ahead and making new careers and lives for themselves.  Two of the men opened a state of the art gym in part because they have to work out strenuously to counteract the aftereffects of their psychic conditioning.

One of the first agents in the team, who was lucky enough to escape experimentation, is master forger and thief Ian Ryder.  Everyone in the team is aware that Ian is unable to stay out of trouble no matter how many times he’s cautioned.  Ian’s current nemesis is another PWP agent he’s working with, gazillionaire and powerful psychic Owen Stallbridge.  The problem for Ian isn’t really work related, it’s the intense lust he feels for Owen. It’s an itch Ian has absolutely no intention of getting scratched.

From his perspective Owen has every intention of getting the little thief in his bed as soon as possible.  It’s frustrating Owen to no end that a man from his past, whose depravity knows no end, is stalling the billionaire’s attempts at wooing Ian.  Taking care of the thorn in his side is unfortunately the priority before Owen can continue his seduction of the sexy man.  First things first and then the thief will belong to him. 

The Power Up! series opens the scene for the wild roller coaster drama Killer Thoughts. Ian and Owen’s intense romance will seduce and enchant the reader with their provocative love story.  Intelligent witty dialogue, a stimulating plot, and sexual encounters that blaze make Killer Thoughts pure entertainment.  Though the large cast of characters from previous books occasionally overwhelms there’s no question this is Ian and Owen’s story.  Killer Thoughts satisfies on every level.
