Jentaron is the new Dragon King, and he is the rightful king although the other Ethereals are trying to give this dragon heartburn.  Jentaron might only be technically 2 years old, but he is a full adult dragon with the same passions.  However, right now Jentaron has more important things to deal with—like a threat to the entire planet.  The balance is about to tip and not in a good way…now to come up with a plan.

 

Zelec is a high demon, and he has been the right-hand man to the leader of the demons.  Zelec also has many more gifts than most demons he has met, with the exception of his boss and the man’s children.  Zelec is amazed when he is drawn in by a human, and yet he knows that he needs to find out all about this amazing woman.  He soon realizes that one night of passion will not be enough, but then his job pulls him away.

 

Ella Nelson is a human with a few special extras.  Ella has worked hard to keep the extras undercover, yet sometimes, a little devil makes her do something with them.  When Ella does give in to the impulse, she always ends up with a bit of cosmic payback for using her gifts.  One day when Ella gave in and used her gifts, she later meets Zelec and later Jentaron.  Now, she is really confused at her attraction to two such different men, and how easy she was for them.  That is very unlike Ella.

 

Chaos is abounding in the not so ordinary, and Jentaron knows that it will take all of the Ethereals working together to bring the balance back again in both the above and below.  He also knows that he will be one of the most important parts of the war.  However, first he will need to find the ones he dreamed about and to make them his mates.  That seems so easy, but in reality it is not when Jentaron realizes that his mates are a powerful demon who isn’t crazy about dragons and a powerful woman who has no idea who she really is.  Things are getting crazy as Jentaron makes his move to make his mates his and to gather the other Ethereals and make them believe what is really going on.  When the final battle comes, will Jentaron, Zelec, and Ella have enough love to keep them alive after the battle of all battles, and will the other Ethereals show up in time to help them?

 

War is on the horizon and only the dragon king knows it. Time is short as Jentaron, Zelec, and Ella not only find each other, but find the way to win the battle and to bring the balance back.  The Dragon King: Not So Ordinary will show all three of them that, individually, they were more than they believed and as a loving threesome, they are enough to help win the battle for all in both the Ordinary and the not so Ordinary.  I wasn’t surprised that the key to the upcoming battle was Jentaron as he was always special, but I was surprised at just who his mates turned out to be, and how he broke the rules to get and keep them.  But hey, just who was going to challenge the dragon king?  I was also surprised to learn just who Zelec’s and Ella’s parents really were and why they were as powerful as they were.  I can say with certainty that when this threesome has any children, both the Ordinary and the Not So Ordinary better watch out.  The final battle was all I could imagine, and I really loved how it was proven the Jentaron, Zelec, and Ella really were true mates and not just together to win the war.  The Dragon King: Not So Ordinary has all the necessary elements to make a great paranormal—suspense, magic, different types of entities and, best of all, passion that rules them all.

Eve Sinclair is a demon with a very important job as a measure of balance, and she has a couple of jokers as brothers.  When Eve learns that her brothers have taken a dragon egg from its nest and hidden it as a bad practical joke on her, Eve busts-out to find that egg and return it before anyone discovers the egg is missing.  That was the plan anyway, but a few things occurred before she was able to do that.  First, it was no ordinary dragon egg and, second, she was found with the egg before she could get it back where it belonged.

 

Ranton, commander of the dragon legion, is mad that the egg was taken under his watch, and he is out to find the egg before anything can happen to it.  Ranton is really surprised to find the egg in the hands of a sexy female demon and even more surprised to find out that the egg has spoken to this female.  Something is strange about this woman, and Ranton wants to find out what it is before he allows her to disappear.  Plus, he really wants to know how this special dragon egg was taken and by whom.

 

Eve knew she was in danger when Ranton appeared, but soon discovered it was much worse than she expected as she learns that this dragon egg is a royal one and very, very special.  Now, Eve is just hoping she can get away from Ranton without a fight.  Ranton and Eve might be feeling some attraction for each other, but the really strange thing is what the egg is telling both of them.  Passion explodes between them but, even so, Eve is determined to get back to her job.  Ranton and the egg are torqued when they discover Eve is gone.  Eve thinks she has gotten away mostly scot-free, or has she?  The real questions are, why does the new royal want Eve, and what about how Ranton feels about Eve and, even more importantly, can Eve return their feelings?

 

Take one sexy demon and two determined dragons and you have a most unusual love story in The Dragon’s Demon: A Dragon’s Dream.  I thought Eve had enough to handle with Ranton, but when you add in Jentaron, I knew it was going to be one unusual adventure and, yet, I learned it wasn’t what might have been expected.  I enjoyed watching as Eve worked hard to do her job and also protect the young dragon both before and after he was born.  Ranton got full marks for his determination to have Eve as his mate.  I really loved the scene where Eve’s brothers received their punishment and Ranton went to claim Eve as his mate. What I will say is don’t start this book thinking you know the outcome, because I can tell you, you will be wrong.   The Dragon’s Demon: A Dragon’s Dream is a great mixture of suspense, passion, sibling rivalry, and a great beginning to what I think will be a good series.

Daniel Beckett is the last of the Beckett brothers (wizards and werewolves) to cast the spell that will bring his mate to him.  For weeks now, Daniel has been fighting his brother’s demands that he cast the spell with everything he is worth..  It’s not that Daniel doesn’t know who that spell will bring to him or that he doesn’t want her with him, it’s that he just knows that by calling her, it will start something that could lead to everyone’s doom.  But, finally, he has to give in and cast the spell, and hope.

 

Kerry Andrews also knows that she is Daniel’s mate, and she has acknowledged their attraction to each other long ago.  But as a human and a nurse, she has no sway in the world that Daniel lives in even though Kerry has been getting help from one of the most powerful women wizards around, who is her best friend’s grandmother.  Kerry has almost given up hope that Daniel will ever call her to his side when she just knows it has to happen.

 

What should have been a simple spell to bring Daniel and Kerry together, instead starts off a chain reaction that will put not only Kerry in danger, but will also reveal a hidden part of Kerry’s background that will have the potential to put her in even more danger than being targeted by the last of the evil Godwin warlock men.  Daniel and Kerry will have to work fast and believe in their love strongly to end not only all the treats to Kerry’s life, but also the Godwin threat to all each of the Beckett’s holds dear.  It comes down to a deadly fight of good power versus evil power, and the winners will win it all and, as normal, it appears that evil has stacked the deck.

 

Two lovers will fight not only for their right to a loving future, but for their very lives and those of their loved ones in Warlock Unbound.  It seems like I waited forever to see Daniel finally accept Kerry as his mate, and I was happy to see him finally do it.  I wasn’t surprised to learn that the Godwin wizard brothers had made a preemptive strike in this final round of their war against the Becketts.  However, I loved watching as all the Becketts and their mates came together to help Daniel and Kerry with their fights and to help them discover a way that Daniel and Kerry could be together forever.  While I enjoyed the final battle that ended the Godwin threat, I really loved being a fly on the wall on the family Samhain celebration the best.  I can safely say that the next generation of Becketts will keep everyone on their toes even more than these brothers.  Warlock Unbound is full of suspense and passion, with the perfect touches of humor and family bonding that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next.

Nadya Sarov never thought that she would return to Dale, Georgia after she and her mother fled during the thick of the night twelve years ago.  Yet, here she is once again in Dale to take care of some family matters.  But this time, she refuses to allow the town folks to label her a gypsy outcast for she is now a successful lawyer from New York.

 

J.T. McBride is the son of the town’s preacher and Nadya was his high school sweetheart.  Occurrences drives them to lead different lives until years later fate reunited them.  This time around, J.T. refuses to allow Nadya to slip through his fingers.  Will J.T. be able to convince Nadya that she belongs in Dale, Georgia with him?  Especially, since someone is equally determined to run Nadya out of town once again.

 

Son of a Preacher Man is an enjoyable read filled with suspense, romance, and envy.  Whereas, it is somewhat easy to figure out the identity of the villain who has set its sights on threatening Nadya in the beginning of the storyline; the reasoning as to why is a surprising aspect in the conclusion of the novel.  And, if that is not enough for Nadya and J.T. to deal with, the couple also receive resentment from women who envied Nadya’s beauty and success.  The courtship of Nadya and J.T. is spicy and very lustful in nature.  Heat will definitely run its course through your body during their sexual encounters.  Although, there is no major shocking factor that will have you hanging on the edge of your seat, the storyline is well-written and a pleasure to read.
