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.

Series: Haven House Vampires #3
Published by Changeling Press Genres: Gay, Menage, Paranormal

Acknowledgement of the existence of vampires brings about more danger for the human population than anyone imagined possible.  It isn’t until Andreas is defeated and Julian takes control that the threat lessens.  The vampires of Haven House are given strict orders to not kill their food source.

 

Vampire partners Micah and Ivan chafe at the restrictions, yet manage to abide by the new rules.  Especially when the human Landon is willing to do anything they want.  Landon has no sense of self worth at the best of times.

 

Even other vampires steer clear of Terrance who doesn’t abide by the new edicts.  He flaunts his vicious nature whenever Julian is away.  His interests in Landon will prove deadly unless Micah and Ivan are willing to intervene.  A tug of war between three vampires is not a place for a self destructive human to be.

 

The world is a scary place for humans in the latest Haven House Vampire story of Forgiven.  Self loathing has led Landon spiraling down so far there’s barely a chance at redemption.  Explicit interactions and a very bad vampire color Forgiven with darkness.  Only a bit of back story explains the current situation the threesome find themselves in.  A great deal of chills and thrills before Forgiven ends.

Series: Ravens of War #4
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: Menage, Paranormal

The very last thing Kira Matsuko wants is for Raven warriors Garrick Theon and Thantos ‘Thane’ Odysseus to follow her to the family residence in Japan.  With the demon Shimigami after their chosen mate the men have no intention of leaving Kira vulnerable.  She insists she has hidden talents of protection, but the men won’t budge.

 

It is a long standing family curse hanging over Kira’s head that has the warriors so worried for her safety.  Finding their mate after so long Garrick and Thane refuse to be complacent where she’s concerned.

 

They learn that the Japanese version of the Grim Reaper has blackened the Matsuko family name.  To make matters worse the Grim Reaper took possession of Kira’s older brother at the moment of his birth.  Kira believes that she can set her brother free from the curse.  Garrick and Thane will do anything to help, except risk Kira.

 

An excellent addition to the Ravens of War series, Kira’s Warriors kicks the action into high gear.  Three strong willed, intelligent adults let their emotions get the better of them and the sparks most definitely fly.  The sexual tension is thick.  The sexual encounters are explosive.  Their threesomes orgasmic.  Kira’s Warriors twists and turns in bold, inventive ways as the demon taunts them.  What happens next is anyone’s guess in this seductive series.
