Zoey Blake was the only survivor of a tragic car accident that left her orphaned.  Nightmares continue to haunt her.  Destitute and starving, the only thing Zoey holds dear is the portfolio of photographs she took when life was better.  The final blow happens when she’s accosted in an alleyway and refuses to hand over her treasured pictures. As Zoey feels her life’s blood slipping away a stranger with a lovely accent offers aid.

 

Long ago when starvation was rampant on the Emerald Isle best friends Ian Kennedy and Connor O’Shea were forcibly changed into creatures of the night.  Their transformation came at a horrible price.  One they’ve never forgotten and vowed to never inflict on another without consent.

 

Decades past the two vampires shared a female human lover and life was good, but she was taken from them by another of their kind.  Ian is well aware that Connor is going to be furious when he brings Zoey into their home.  He knows Connor would rather go without companionship than risk losing his heart and soul again, however Ian is certain Zoey’s meant to be with them.

 

With the holiday season in sight perhaps it is the time to believe something or someone greater is at work…

 

The Bite of Winter focuses on the upcoming season for three lost souls and the results are exactly right.  Each with a sad tale to tell, The Bite of Winter offers redemption ménage style.  Emotions run high as Zoey, Ian, and Connor struggle to make their relationship work.  Their bumpy road to romance is heartwarming perfection.  Sexy and simply enjoyable this trio deserves happiness and work hard to find it.

Sean Kaheaku, Jamie Alexander, and Randy Young all have a past together as lovers, spies, and in partnerships—not all together at first, but as couples with Sean.  Then they were torn apart by betrayals and their dangerous profession, and Sean ended up on his own, and Jamie and Randy became a couple.  However, they knew that they were not complete without Sean, and he just dropped out of everything. When Jamie and Randy learned what the rumors were about what happened to Sean, they were determined to go and get him and to hopefully become the trio their hearts have always told them was perfect for them.

 

Sean has been working in Hawaii on a private job after receiving a serious shock and gift on his last mission for his old boss.  This private job is risky enough, but when Jamie and Randy show up and try to get Sean to become a part of them again, he isn’t sure for two reasons.  One, he isn’t sure his heart can handle another kick from Jamie and Randy, and, two, things in his personal life have changed a bit, and neither Jamie nor Randy know what they are walking into.

 

It takes little to no time for the chemistry to flame up among the three of them, but they have always been compatible that way.  The real test is if they can all find a way to acknowledge the things in their past that tore them apart the first time and find a way to overcome them.  Things might be rolling along, but first Sean has to find a way to let Jamie and Randy know exactly what has happened in his life since they last saw him and what he is really doing in Hawaii.  Once again, danger is breathing down on Sean, Jamie, and Randy, while they find a way to become a true loving partnership.  The question is if this time the three of them have what it takes to not only stay safe and together or if they are once and for all doomed by a mastermind that has been after them for years.

 

Three former lovers just might have a chance to a bright and loving future together, but first they must use all their spy and life knowledge to stop a madman in A Little Harmless Rumor.  After seeing how Sean and Jamie and Sean and Randy became couples, I was shocked to see that Sean was now alone, and Jamie and Randy were struggling to bring them all together as a threesome their hearts all needed.  I was a bit surprised by Sean’s reactions until I learned just what had happened to him and what had brought him home to Hawaii.  Even when it looked bleak for them, I knew that with these three stubborn people, it was going to take all but a nuclear bomb to tear them apart this time.  Watching as they overcame each new hurdle and forge an even stronger bond told me that nothing was going to stop their love this time—not even a madman.  Boy, was I correct and I loved just how they proved it in the end.  A Little Harmless Rumor finally brings two love stories to one great and loving ending for them all, and it’s full of suspense, humor and, of course, great passion—the perfect ending for this threesome.

Alyssa Hampstead is the daughter of a U.S. Senator who is believed to be headed towards the Presidency.  She is barely eighteen and finally eligible to go to the party she has heard about for years.  Besides being one of the season’s most wanted invitations, it is also a place to meet other intriguing people, which is exactly what Alyssa does.  Sebastian and Shane De Loren are cousins who are straddling the line both professionally and sexually.  They are at the holiday party to gain information and if seducing a willing woman will give it to them, so be it.  At least, those were their thoughts before a young and stunning girl wandered into their alcove.  Now after a few minutes of conversation, both Sebastian and Shane know that Alyssa is theirs.

 

A summer of hot romance and sexual pleasure has bound Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane together. Just when the men are about to make Alyssa a permanent part of their lives, their families step in and make them give up Alyssa because of a threat to all of them.  All three are torn apart as the years pass. Time and again, Alyssa loses all that she loves, and Sebastian and Shane work hard to remove the threat that is keeping her from their hearts.  Life is not easy for any of the threesome and yet, just when the men believe they can finally have Alyssa, there is yet another block in their way.  Now finally, Sebastian and Shane can have what they lost so long ago, but has time and so much disappointment and heartache destroyed the Alyssa they knew and left a shell unable to love again?  Only the bond wedged between them so long ago might be able to give these lovers the future they have dreamed of for many, many years.

 

Passion found, lost and found again after loss and heartache will learn that when love is involved it will always come out on top in Secret Pleasures.  I will say right off that my heart seriously ached for Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane in more than one place.  I have read the Bound Hearts series since it began and, at first, I believed that this was just another of those sexy stories.  Then the threats and heartaches began, and I learned that the journey that Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane had to travel was harder than anyone before them.  Through it all I kept hoping that somehow they would find a way to have their happy ending. After all, it was a romance.  Yet, I will admit that in a couple of places, I wasn’t sure this would happen.  When these three lovers finally came together—older, wiser, and after a long and painful separation—to me, it just made their ending that much sweeter.  I have to say that I believe this to be the best Bound Hearts story yet, and that is saying a lot.  Secret Pleasures is a love story full of erotic pleasures and years of struggles that will tear your heart out in places and yet, it ends with the best possible of endings—passion regained and love abounding!

A bizarre accident caused by scientists at Berkley tears a hole in reality.  Strange creatures of myth and fairy tale literally drop from their reality into our own without rhythm or reason.  It was termed RARE or Random Anomalous Reality Events.  To deal with these beings who are torn from their lives into ours AURA is created to help them – the Agency of Unnatural Resettlement and Assimilation.

 

Recently a battle with a deadly lich queen left the ranks of officers at AURA badly decimated, including the loss of their leader.  Elf Valerian Hartgrove has tentatively taken on the position and responsibilities as the new acting Captain.  His human lover Quinn also agreed to jump from larceny to legitimate employment at AURA.  Bursting with magical power Quinn will no doubt become a valuable asset once he can truly control his gift.

 

The latest event brings a pair of battle Elves onto the streets of Tokyo.  Sage Blackdrake and Ash Bloodroot were fighting an enemy with swords one minute and dropped onto a city street the next.  Understandably disoriented the Elf lovers are at least at the moment very dangerous.

 

To stop a disaster in the making young Elf Officer Flax Wolfheart, a skilled hunter and tracker for AURA is sent through their version of a wormhole to Tokyo.  Flax is a good warrior and valued team member.  His unfortunate infatuation with Val is a bit of a problem, especially now that he’s been told to train Quinn, but aside from that he’s a very good officer.

 

With so few officers left and the new recruits green it’s all hands on deck which is weighing Flax down.  He’s responsible for bringing in the battle ready Elves, training Quinn, and working with Quinn to find a killer turning humans to stone.  And no one is aware that he has a sealed record of drug abuse and rehab.  The young Elf seeks the Captain’s approval as well.  But at what cost is the question.

 

Complications abound and an Elf begins to make all the wrong moves in Flax’s Pursuit, the second intense story in the refreshingly unique AURA series.  Twists and turns and spooky killers pop up to fuel Flax’s Pursuit.  The lead characters are quite a handful, yet each has their own strong, vibrant voice exactly at the right time.  This original storyline intrigues and keeps the reader thoroughly engaged.  Hooked from beginning to end I Joyfully recommend Flax’s Pursuit.  Seriously addicting.

Miami based Dillon Securities is run by Maura Dillon after her FBI big brother Conner found love and a new beginning in Hawaii.  Her one time lover Zeke O’Brian and his lover Rory McAllister make up their trio who currently juggle all the balls in a successful firm.

 

With the Petersen trial coming up Conner’s urged Maura and the guys to take some down time on the big island.  Though her name wasn’t mentioned in the transcripts it might be better to leave Miami until the verdict is in.  Her involvement was minimal but the man on trial might not see it that way, so a vacation far away seems a good idea.

 

At one time Maura and Zeke were hot and heavy, but he couldn’t dominate her in the bedroom the way she needed.  Rory on the other hand is all Dom and proposes to use the trip as a sexual experiment of sorts.  A trial of their own to see if a mutual balance can be found.  When they return home life goes back to the way it was.

 

Confused and elated by the sexual satisfaction achieved with both men Maura is nonetheless feeling as though she’s being watched.  The guys dismiss her claims and soon regret it when the unimaginable happens.  It seems that the big island wasn’t as safe after all.

 

Sensual tricks galore in A Little Harmless Fantasy, the eighth story in the successful Harmless series.  Maura, Zeke, and Rory explore consensual erotic situations with scorching hot satisfying results. A Little Harmless Fantasy features an intelligent adult plotline with verve and sexual intensity.  A nasty twist in the story adds another level of enjoyment.  Though short on back story Maura and the guys keep readers enthralled with their spicy Hawaii week.  Truly carnal.
