coz-en (kuz-uhn)
verb
1. trick or deceive.
• obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?

 

 

Who can you trust is one of the major themes in Bethany-Kris’ latest release, Cozen. Who can you trust with your heart and most importantly your life?

Cozen Taylor is the most famous thief in America. She’s looking to retire when she gets roped into one final job which turns out to be the largest and most dangerous of her career.

Sargon Makri is a hardened killer with no allegiances.  He is a lethal bodyguard who recently found himself protecting one of the deadliest criminals in the U.S. His life is monotonous until a sexy waitress upends his life.  He wants her…he wants her bad…it’s just too bad his boss wants her as well.

Cozen is a highly entertaining read.  I found it a fast, fun exciting romance.  I particularly enjoyed the thrilling intrigue.  The sparks between Cozen and Sargon are swift and scintillating.  I loved that Cozen is such a badass in her field of expertise. It was great that she never shrunk under the daunting circumstances of the heist. She was determined to never rely on Sargon to save her.  If you are looking for sinfully erotic sex, steamy romance and excellent storytelling plus one heck of a twist then Cozen is for you.

College student Sedona is kidnapped while on vacation.  A vacation she did not get permission to go on.  As an Alpha’s daughter and a shewolf she is a hot commodity.

Carlos Montelobo is the Alpha of his pack but he’s not exactly in charge.  Carlos’s pack has an independent council.  This council takes it upon themselves to lock him in a room with Sedona…while she is in heat.

The council is determined to bring new blood into their pack.  Carlos’s pack suffers from dwindling numbers due to inbreeding.  The council have their plan and it doesn’t necessarily include Carlos’ opinion.

Carlos and Sedona are thrust into an intangible situation.  They try to fight their intense attraction but it’s futile because their wolves have decided what they want.  Is it possible for Carlos and Sedona to have any kind of relationship under these circumstances? Will they have the opportunity to find out or will the council’s plan interfere?

Alpha’s Prize is a hot paranormal erotic novel.  Things get heated quickly as you can imagine.  While the sex is sizzling, I enjoyed Carlos and Sedona’s relationship outside of the sex.  The pack politics were interesting but became derivative at times.  I found myself getting tired of hearing what the council was thinking.  The secondary characters were quite fascinating.  I wish I had read the earlier books in the series first.

Alpha’s Prize is a scintillating read.  If you love Alpha’s this is the book for you!

COWBOY AND THE THIEF
Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?

 

Cowboy and the Captive

Luc Jardin and his business partner Jack were almost killed and not Luc is out for revenge.

Melina is tired of always cleaning up her sister Maria’s messes.  She finally gets brave enough to stand up to her parents and refuse to help Maria.  Unfortunately, Maria’s recent crimes land Melina in the hands of Luc.

A Kidnapping for revenge turns into something neither Luc nor Melina are prepared for.

Cowboy and the Thief

Angel Manning is desperate to get back a family heirloom.  Jack Riley wants to claim what’s his.  When Angel breaks into Jack’s home he takes drastic measures to get what he wants.  Will Angel give into Jack or leave him in the dust?

Rugged Texas Cowboy gives the reader two stories from Author Lora Leigh.  Cowboy and the Captive and Cowboy and the Thief have been revised and expanded from versions previously released.

Both Cowboy and the Captive and Cowboy and the Thief are erotic.  While highly erotic both stories have their fair share of emotion.  I have to say I enjoyed the actual emotion more than the sex.  Author Lora Leigh’s Rugged Texas Cowboy is sizzling.

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!

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.
