New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter’s pulse-pounding paranormal series continues with an electrifying story about the ultimate warrior and his prize: a beautiful woman he will do anything to possess. HE IS EVERY WOMAN’S FANTASY . . . Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent . . . and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help—a woman with even more secrets than Blue. SHE BECOMES HIS ONLY OBSESSION . . . Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breached her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe—even though he’d rather die than live without her. . . .

JoyfullyRecommendedCorbin Blue is a talented man. He is a star football player, a playboy and wealthy.  Unfortunately, it appears someone wants him and his team dead.  After a bomb nearly kills him, Corbin must seek out help from the last person he ever expected to need.  His boss’ daughter is sexy as sin with an attitude that rivals his but only she has the skills to save his life.

 

The last thing Evangeline Black expected to find in her bed is an almost dead Corbin Blue.  Corbin has always been her least favorite person—well, that is what she tells herself to fight the attraction.  He is one of her father’s men; she is determined not to cross that line but as she finally gets a glimpse of the real Corbin Blue, Evangeline finds it hard to say no to him.

 

If Evangeline and Corbin want to find out who is behind the bombing they will have to learn to work together.  Corbin finds himself admiring Evangeline’s skills but she provokes his most protective instincts.  He soon realizes that if he wants to keep her safe he will have to leave her.  Good luck! Evangeline is not a push over.  Will Corbin and Evangeline make it out of danger alive?

 

Gena Showalter’s Black and Blue is a fantastic addition to the Otherworld series.  I cannot get enough of Showalter’s brilliant writing.  Ms. Showalter writes with incredible depth making her world and characters come to 4D life on the pages.  I would absolutely love for James Cameron to bring the Otherworld series to life on the silver screen!

 

I’m so excited about Corbin’s story! His character is a striking one.  I couldn’t wait to learn more about what makes this sexy playboy tick.  Some of his scenes are so striking.  I could feel the immense pain he was feeling after the bombing that almost killed him.  And let’s not forget how great the scenes are where he attempts to be protective of Evangeline.  This playboy becomes serious really quick!  Evangeline has always seen Corbin as his reputation dictates.  But she learns quickly that he is serious when it comes to her.  However, she has been taking care of herself for years.  I love that Evangeline is smart and capable of kicking some butt.  These two make a great team in and out of the bedroom! Their chemistry is powerful and off the charts.  I could read stories about them forever they are so dang interesting!

 

Black and Blue sizzles in all the right places.  I’m Joyfully Recommending it!  This is one of those novels that combines fantasy and romance giving the readers a phenomenal read! Black and Blue hits the spot!

JoyfullyRecommendedSpecial Forces Captain Landon Donovan isn’t exactly happy when he is pulled away from his team in the middle of a mission for a secret assignment.  When he learns he is to be teamed up with a woman he finds sexy as sin, he feels a little better about this assignment. After seeing the beauty fight, Landon is downright excited.

Female shifter Ivy Halliwell isn’t happy to be teamed with another Special Ops guy.  She’s had several partners and none of them have respected her natural talents.  She learns quickly that Landon is different.  He is happy to use her extra gifts to hunt down the bad guys. The only problem is that Ivy can’t stop wanting to jump his bones!  Ivy and Landon will be tested as a major bad guy emerges, putting them in danger. Will they survive long enough to test their feelings for each other?

Paige Tyler has a purrrfect hit on her hands with Her Perfect Mate.  I have been craving a shifter romance that burns the pages and Ms. Tyler’s Her Perfect Mate is brilliantly satisfying.  I absolutely love Her Perfect Mate it has everything you need in a paranormal romance…action, suspense, desire, sizzling chemistry and a romance to die for!

Tyler creates an intriguing world for her phenomenally layered characters.  Landon is your sexy military guy with a hardened exterior but his heart shines through and proves he is much more.   Ivy is exasperated with her partner situation as all of the ones in the past have disregarded her and her skills.  Landon is a delightful change for Ivy and I love how he throws her off balance with his willingness to work together.  They share some intensely sexy scenes.  These two are hot, hot hot! There is one scene that I love and it involves a pizza guy! I could not stop laughing it was totally adorable.  Her Perfect Mate is a movie in the making!  The end was action-packed and so thrilling!  I was holding my breath in anticipation!  You do not want to miss out on this blockbuster read!

Her Perfect Mate is definitely on my Best of list for 2014!

Two deadly predators... As a feline Enforcer, Tammy Anderson has one objective: locate the missing jaguar and return it to the States. She doesn't have time for distractions, and she definitely doesn't have time for sexy shifters with more muscles than sense. One hot mission... Everyone and their brother has warned JAG agent David Patterson that Tammy is Ms. Hands-Off...which only makes him more determined to get very hands-on. But things heat up in the steamy jungles of Belize and their simple mission gets a whole lot more complicated. Now it's going to take everything David's got to protect the gorgeous she-cat who somehow managed to claw her way past his defenses...and into his heart.

JoyfullyRecommendedEnforcer Tammy Anderson has a reputation among her fellow enforcers as a one woman show.  Tammy likes to leave her partners in the dust.  Her latest case involves a missing jaguar.  She is all set to head to Belize to find the jaguar when she discovers she has been assigned a partner for this mission.

 

JAG Agent David Patterson has heard a lot about Tammy.  None of that prepared him for the insane chemistry and protective feelings she arouses. She manages to get away from him once but as they arrive in Belize they both realize having a partner may be a good thing.

 

The case of the missing Jaguar becomes more complicated than either Tammy or David anticipated.  Danger stalks their every move as things heat up in the jungle.  Tammy and David ache to explore the intense feelings between them but they may not get the chance as it seems someone wants them dead.

 

Terry Spear makes the pages of her latest Jaguar book catch fire with her steamy characters and suspenseful storytelling.  Jaguar Hunt takes us from Texas to Belize and back with one hell of a plotline and plenty of passion.  Tammy and David are the perfect pair; it was exciting falling in love with them as the story unfolded.  Tammy is such a strong and crafty character. She is definitely capable of taking care of herself but she has forgotten what it is like to have someone take care of her.  David is smitten with Tammy right away. He really can put her in her place and come out all innocent.  I just love the teasing banter they have throughout the story.

 

Ms. Spear does an excellent job of creating a visual of the jungle setting for the reader.  The entire zip line scenario made me want to vomit and that is actually good because I felt like I was experiencing the happenings with the characters.  I do love the Belize setting but I could really do without the snakes!

 

Jaguar Hunt takes the reader on a wild adventure…one they won’t want to end!

First in the Underground Encounters series. Nike loves visiting the goth club Vamps-she can exchange her firefighter uniform for a slinky fantasy outfit. There she runs into the man she'd been admiring from afar at a rock-climbing gym. He's been the star of all her sexual fantasies, so is it any wonder they end up in his private room upstairs? Just when things begin to heat up, Michel's enemies appear. Michel isn't an ordinary mortal. And someone from his past is on the hunt for vengeance. Michel and Nike are forced to run and hide out in a coastal cottage in Maine. They can't resist their attraction and spend the nights exploring each other's bodies while trying to sort out how they feel. Can they overcome their differences while evading the predators chasing them?

A night of drinks and dancing at hole in the wall fetish club Vamps is the way for best friends Nike and Maya to unwind after a grueling week at work as firefighters.  Usually Nike sticks to one night stands, but after seeing tall, dark and handsome standing in the corner she’s reassessing her methods.  Something about the man with the sexy French accent has Nike wanting more.

 

Michel owns Vamps, along with several other businesses in town.  He has to keep busy otherwise what’s the point of living hundreds of years.  Spying Nike in the club he has to have her and luckily she agrees to some alone time with Michel in his office.  His cover is blown, at least to Nike, when two men from his past attempt to destroy the club.  Nike witnesses Michel confronting the pair with inhuman strength and fangs.  For safety’s sake Nike is forced to run away with a man she barely knows, who sets her pulse racing and craves her blood.

 

Smoldering Nights ignites the sky with mystery and passion. Nike is anything but typical, a dedicated firefighter who snags the attention of an otherworldly creature.  The fast paced drama has enough riddles to keep you guessing while a sexy and loving romance begins.  Smoldering Nights is a terrific start to a fascinating new series.

Third in the Underground Encounters series Lily Everett needs sex, but won't consider a permanent relationship, because she harbors a secret she's certain no one will understand. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she's disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico's charms. A computer geek by day, Nico dons a rock singer persona by night. He's tired of women pursuing him just because he's in a band-the sex may be handy, but he wants something more. He's intrigued by Lily's reticence. Keeping her emotional distance proves difficult the more Lily uncovers the intelligent, considerate man hiding behind Nico's bad-boy persona. Their encounters are hot-hot-hot, but Nico wants more from Lily than sex. When Lily lets down her guard and reveals her other side, Nico's shock destroys their closeness and they both doubt they can overcome their differences. A Romantica(r) paranormal/shapeshifter erotic romance from Ellora's Ca

Celebrating a promotion at work Ligeia ‘Lily’ Everett agrees to check out Vamps with her best friend Ally.  Going to a club isn’t Lily’s typical M.O.  She tends to haunt bookstores or work out at the fitness center where she made friends with Ally, a yoga instructor.  When the itch hits, Lily keeps it strictly to one night stands because she has a secret that makes it impossible to have a real relationship.

 

The band playing at Vamps tonight is none other than Velvet Cocks, an underground garage band quickly gaining popularity.  Lily can’t believe it when the lead singer Leggy Bones aka Nico Bedrosian hits on her.  From there a cat and mouse game between the pair begins.  For every forward step that Nico gains Lily takes two back.  How can she ever contemplate a relationship with Nico when the full moon calls to her every month?

 

A budding romance navigates shaky ground in Rock Me Tonight.  Engaging characters and a plotline that keeps readers guessing proves entertaining in the third Underground Encounters story.  Lily is burdened with a secret she’s carried since puberty, one that forces her to be alone.  This character yearns for a companion to call her own.  Nico is a good man whose faith in reality is questioned by Lily.  This series is addictive.
