Long ago a vampire saved a small wolf shifter pack from starvation by an offer of blood.  A pact was established between Paul and the pack giving the vampire a Guardian to feed from and gain a companion in exchange for further blood donations to strengthen the wolves.  Each Guardian gains extreme longevity though never immortality like their vampire benefactor.   With Adam’s passing it is time for Paul to accept a new Guardian.

 

As all the unmated male wolves gather at Alpha Charles’ command they are faced with the first vampire this generation has ever seen.   Paul recognizes his new Guardian in pack computer tech Brantley who instantly denies their bond.  Somewhat bulldozed into going to the vampire’s mountainside home Brantley continues to deny his place at Paul’s side.  His biggest problem is discovering that Paul is enjoying the challenge of taming Brantley, immensely.

 

Caught between a rock and a hard place, this Chosen Wolf revolts.  The more Brantley protests the deeper he succumbs to Paul in this sensual drama.  The emotional battle between the vampire and the wolf shifter is the heart and soul of Chosen Wolf.  Hot in temperament and hot in passion the pair barely cool off for a moment.  Also, though Brantley refuses Paul’s sexual overtures in the beginning their encounters never become an uncomfortable situation for the reader.  Chosen Wolf is fiercely hot.

Maddox Sinclair is a college student who is living and working in his grandfather’s barista café. He is also trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life since he was dumped a while ago by this childhood friend and boyfriend for Hollywood.  Maddox could forgive his friend for leaving, but not for the things that were said. Now, he just works at the café, makes coffee, and works on his studies.

 

Rush Storm is the lead in his band Rising Storm and while taking a walk in a new city, becomes lost just as a really bad storm hits. Rush sees a darkened coffee shop and goes into it for shelter. What he finds there is a barista who stirs up all of his hidden lust. Rush has always been more interested in boys rather than girls, but to give his band a chance, he agreed to certain terms and the biggest is no publicly acknowledging his passions.

 

Maddox falls under the spell of Rush’s eyes and in the storm darkened night, passion rules the night.  That sensual night will change both Maddox and Rush once the daylight hits.  Rush doesn’t want to give up Maddox and takes steps to show him just how far Rush is willing to go to have Maddox in his life.  Maddox is finally believing that he can be part of Rush’s rock star life when a huge misunderstanding that hits right at all the buttons that both Maddox and Rush have. Is their love doomed before it barely starts, or can they find a way to be together even with the constant spotlight on them?

 

A sexy rock star and a hunky college student discover the highs and lows of love in Taken by Storm.  I could understand Maddox’s hurt in the past and his wanting to be cautious in believing Rush loved him. I also loved seeing just how far Rush went to prove his love to Maddox. I personally would be looking for a new manager/agent after the dust-up that was caused by faulty fact finding and how it was announced, but I have a feeling that Rush and Maddox will take care of that. I really loved how their story ended the book.  Taken by Storm is a great story of finding and keeping love even when the odds are totally against you.

Tara went to the police academy and graduated with her friends River and Kat and between them they decided they would rather be private investigators than cops and they opened up Angel Investigations.  Now the three friends are all recovering from the shootout that finally brought down Detective Raymond Marino.  Tara is with Kat at the ranch owned by her brother Charlie.  Recovery would be a lot easier if Tara wasn’t so attracted to Charlie and his two best friends.

 

Charlie, Dasan and Sam all work on the ranch and all have been on their best behavior while Tara has been recovering – because all three of them would like nothing more than to show Tara exactly what they are feeling and have her in the middle of the three of them.  Sharing is nothing new for Charlie, Dasan and Sam and all three of them know that if Tara ever agreed to be with them, she would be the one that would complete them.  But for now they work at keeping Kat and Tara safe and without stress to recover.

 

Tara starts to get graphic text messages with crime scene pictures of not only Detective Raymond Marino but also of women.  Who is sending these horrible pictures to her and why?  Tara knows that Raymond is dead and can’t think of anyone else who would do this.  After receiving several of the pictures Tara talks to Kat and River. It is decided that one of them would go back to take care of their business and search for answers on who would send the pictures.  Tara took the advice from her best friends to act on the attraction she felt for Charlie, Dasan and Sam.  All four felt the passion and enjoyed the erotic night that followed, which led to days of discovery and talking as all four learned what they could have together.  When the men learn about the pictures and what the women were doing, they sent protection to Kat and worked on a safety net for Tara at the ranch.  The pictures are getting worse and the danger is coming much closer to them all. When Tara discovers just who is behind the messages and why, will her men be there to keep her safe or will their loving future become another casualty of a truly insane plan?

 

A recovering private investigator and three cowboys discover that not even danger can keep them from finding what their future would hold in Roped for Pleasure.  Charlie, Dasan and Sam had been highly attracted to Tara since they met her, although they hadn’t acted on it before she was hurt in a shootout.  Tara also felt that attraction and avoided it because there was no way she could pick just one, happily shocked describes her reaction when she learns that she doesn’t have to pick but can have all three.  Watching the men first love and then work to protect Tara showed just how far all four of them had traveled from passion to love in just a few days.  When Tara risked it all to protect her friends, I wasn’t surprised at all that those three cowboys were hot on her trail.  Roped for Pleasure takes three best friends and adds in the one woman who could make their hearts whole while being surrounded in deadly danger.

Kat went to the police academy and graduated with her friends River and Tara. Together, they decided they would rather be private investigators than cops and, they opened up Angel Investigations.  It was decided by the three friends that Kat would be the one to go back to find out who was sending Tara graphic pictures. She would also begin to wrap-up some of the loose ends they left when they all ran after a shoot-out that injured them and killed a detective turned madman.  Kat learned from Tara that she was also in danger and being stalked by a person or people left from that last shoot-out.

 

Rafe has known Kat many, many years and once they had a close relationship, then life happened and Rafe went into the marines and Kat to the police academy. Rafe and two of his buddies, Liam and Adrain, are asked to protect Kat from the people out to kill her and suddenly all four of them are locked together in one place.  This is not the first time that all four were in close proximity together—no there was the one night of blinding pleasure that scared Kat so badly she ran from her marines.

 

Now she has one final time to learn if that night was a foretelling of the future or if it was just one wonderful night that will just be special forever.  Rafe and Liam might be willing to go forward from this point, but Kat is still a bit unsure if she can handle three men at once, and Adrian has his own reason for being wary of any continuation of their group relationship.  Just when it looks like the danger is over, Kat overcomes her nerves and goes for her men before they turn from her. All four discover that same feeling from their one night, and they work to overcome any barriers that would tear them apart with pleasure and through talking things out.  However, that danger following Kat isn’t over, and it takes them all by surprise when she is taken.  Rafe, Adrian and Liam are about to put all their training into action to save their spicy Kat from a madwoman before it’s too late.

 

One night of blinding pleasure brought four independent hearts together and insecurity tore them apart, now they have another chance to see if their feelings are really a lasting love or just spent passion in Arranged for Pleasure.  Seeing Kat and her men work out just how their lives would be together while dealing with a dangerous situation proved that this foursome had the strength to keep together no matter what. I understood the qualms that both Kat and Adrian had, and yet I knew that Rafe and Liam would be able to hold them all up while the rope of love tied them together once and for all. Watching this interaction while they were attempting to end the danger to Kat and her partners, added depth to their journey.  Arranged for Pleasure takes four people and sets them on a path filled with danger and love, if they can just overcome their personal barriers to reach for it.
