Lycan, Jesse Stone, has been captured by a crazed bunch of scientists and is destined to be their experiment.  Jesse refuses to give in to their demands for a harvesting sample and is just waiting for them to kill him.  What Jesse doesn’t realize is that the scientists have observed him watching the woman who brings his food.  When they catch Jesse eyeing the woman’s body, they know they have discovered his weakness.

 

Erin Maddox is appalled to learn that the scientists she works for want her to have sexual relations with Jesse Stone in order to extract his sperm.  When Erin adamantly refuses, she is injected with a solution that makes her immediately, and agonizingly, aroused.  There is now only one way to stop the pain that impacts her entire body and she allows herself to be let into Jesse’s holding cell.

 

The one woman Jesse has been longing for is unbearably aroused and in his cell.  Unable to stop himself, Jesse draws Erin into an animalistic, passionate embrace.  After their ardent mating session comes to an end, Erin is torn from Jesse’s side and he is fed vicious lies.  Jesse vows, with every cell in his body, to exact revenge when he is free.

 

Wolfen Domination by Celeste Anwar was one of the darkest books I have read in a long time.  The characters had to fight so hard to come to grips with their feelings for each other that when they finally admitted to caring, I was left emotionally drained.  Jesse had to redeem himself in my eyes because of the way he treated Erin when she helped him escape.  Lucky for him, he came through with flying colors.  As for Erin, I thought her quite brave, especially when surrounded by a pack of howling wolves.

 

Wolfen Domination was the first book I have ever read by Celeste Anwar and I can say without a doubt that it won’t be the last.  I’m going to be scouring Ms. Anwar’s backlist to see what else she has to offer.  Wolfen Domination kept me on the edge of my seat and I am sure that readers who are fans of fast-paced, action werewolf tales will enjoy it as well.

Charlotte Baird was always very shy, but she was feisty when needed. After a viscous attack in a place that she should have been safe, now she is shy and scared. In fact, Charlotte has nick-named herself “Charlie-Mouse.” Because even the thought of having to interview for a new job can give Charlie hives, she has allowed herself to be taken advantage of at work. Charlie’s normal day at work could get even more interesting, as new CEO is coming, and he is known for taking no prisoners.

 

Gabriel Bishop was known as “the Bishop” on the rugby field and as one tough competitor. When an injury took Gabriel off the field, he walked into his second love—bringing companies back from the brink of ruin. The challenge of turning a shrinking business around and making it profitable gives Gabriel the same type of rush that racing down the rugby field did. Gabriel is once again stepping in to help an established and world renowned business to take its place back in the world of elite retail shopping.

 

To say that when Gabriel and Charlie first met it was all but a disaster might not be strong enough. But Gabriel has always used the assets he finds to their best advantage, and Charlotte is definitely an asset for the company. Now, if he can only find a way to bring out the feisty woman he sees in her eyes when they are together instead of the timid and scared mouse, they will be an unbeatable team. Charlie doesn’t care what Gabriel’s nickname might have been before, but she has the perfect one for him now—T-Rex. As the months go by, it’s a fun loving battle between a Charlie-Mouse vs. T-Rex. It’s one that is peppered with passion as respect turns into friendship and that turns into feelings that cannot be denied. When Charlie is once again threatened by a nightmare from her past, Gabriel is going to show just why he was so good on the rugby field, and this is one T-Rex that knows how to protect those he loves.

 

When a quiet and timid woman with a core of feistiness meets a man known to chew up and spit out incompetents, the outcome is a book you just can’t put down.  Charlotte and Gabriel have quite a journey that will encompass everything from a shaky first meeting to friendly workmates to a romance that rocks both of their worlds in Rock Hard. I just can’t tell you how many times I laughed and cheered both Charlie and Gabriel on while I watched their relationship progress. I also really loved the chapter titles that showed up, because then I couldn’t wait to see how the title was reflected in the chapter itself. But mostly, I felt for Gabriel as he helped Charlie regain the parts of herself that had been lost to violence. Charlie’s inner strength and determination will totally have you cheering for her to kick butt on her fears and grasp every element of the love between herself and Gabriel. Rock Hard is a wonderful story about beating the odds with an adorable couple that I just want to hug now that they have it all. Before reading about Gabriel and Charlie, I only wanted to see the rest of the band have their books, now I not only want that, but I also want to see Gabriel’s two single brothers find their happy endings too.

Talia met her Blackie many years ago and then met him again just a few years ago as her sexy Mr. Black. That meeting was full of so much sexual contact and discovery, but circumstances forced them apart yet again. Now Talia is no longer a college student with a journalism major, but an up and coming erotic writer who used to be a reporter. However, for being an erotic writer, Talia’s personal life leaves a lot to be desired, and that is how she comes to a resort during the singles weekend. It is also how she meets Sebastian once again, her sexy Mr. Black, and this time even though they don’t meet in costume, it still takes Talia time to believe who he is.

 

Sebastian has also changed a lot since his last meeting with his Ms. Scarlett. He is no longer in the military, but now has his own security company, and he lost his part of the family fortune by breaking the understanding that would have left him in the shadows of his father’s family. Sebastian has no regrets on any of that, but he has always regretted letting his Scarlett slip through his fingers. Now that she is in his sight once again, Sebastian is determined to make her his once and for all.

 

As Talia explores the mystery of someone using her pen name, she learns that her Mr. Black is just as forceful as always and also just as sexy. Yes, things have changed for both of them, and yet nothing has changed that instant passion that has always existed between them. Danger has attached itself to Talia, and it takes the wits of both Talia and Sebastian to defeat this threat before anyone else is killed. In the aftermath, Talia is all but ready to submit to Sebastian in every way, not just sexually, but before she can, there is one piece of information that she must tell Sebastian of their past. Before that can happen, once again outside influences have made even more misunderstanding and believed betrayals. Will Scarlett and Mr. Black ever have a chance to see just what they could be together? Or can Talia and Sebastian finally find a way to leave their pasts once and for all and discover the future that seems to be calling and yearning for them?

 

The next chapter of Scarlett and Mr. Black is even hotter and sexier than ever with danger circling in on them in Scarlett Red.  I have to admit that I had set a pretty high bar for the chapter of Talia and Sebastian’s journey to love. Their first meeting was just so explosive; however, I had nothing to worry about with this meeting. It was even hotter and had a more intense element of suspense that kept them busy while they circled around each other. I really loved how Talia kept wondering if she was losing her mind on thinking Sebastian was with her and then learned her first instincts were more than correct. Sebastian was even more dominating than both of the times he saved Talia, and yet it is so obvious that they belong together. I wanted to scream when this part of their story ended just where it did, and yet it has me more than ready to see what happens during their next encounter.  I know that it will be hotter and sexier than either of these first two parts, and yet I know that many hurt feelings and misunderstanding will need to be cleared away before either Talia or Sebastian can go forward. Scarlett Red will keep you bound to your seat just turning pages spellbound by the intense emotions that surround Talia and Sebastian.

A year ago Burke and Cole Lennox left the woman they loved for a mission to save a young girl.  When they arrived home it was to discover that Jessa, the woman they both love has married someone else.  This crushing blow threw the brothers into chaos.  They headed back into the action saving as many women as possible from sexual slavery.

 

Jessa Wade threw caution to the wind to indulge in a week of bliss with Burke and Cole.  She was devastated when they left and never returned.  They told her they loved her.  She has never gotten over Burke and Cole’s desertion.  When they come speeding back into her life full steam claiming she is in danger Jessa has no choice but to believe them and give them one heck of a surprise.

 

Can Burke and Cole protect the woman they love and win her heart again?

 

Their Virgin’s Secret is a pulse-pounding lust filled romance.  Their Virgin’s Secret starts off with a bang.  The excitement and yearning is totally enthralling.  I’m not a huge fan of telling a story in flashback fashion but it works here.  I really like Jessa and her adamant denial of her feelings for Burke and Cole.  She is so certain she is done with the men that left her but she can’t fight the heat that engulfs them all when together.  Their Virgin’s Secret is an erotic romantic feast with a splash of suspense.
