Tilly Jackson is a barmaid in the West.  Usually content, she sometimes gets a ‘feeling’ and realizes that the time to move on from where she is to another town. She’s getting that feeling now, but something else has caught her eye, or rather someone else…

 

Leo Samuels can’t believe that someone as lovely as Tilly would want to be with him – which is why he is a bit leery of her request.  But as more time passes, what started out as a brief encounter turns into something more.

 

First off, Tilly was brave and I adored her.  She wasn’t afraid to go after what she wants and she wanted Leo.  Speaking of Leo, he was a long tall drink of blue eyed water and was sexy with a capital S.  I like how he treated Tilly and I loved that he loved her.

 

Not a bad novel. I found that some of the typos pulled me out of the story, other than that, In the Hands of an Outlaw wasn’t a bad book – but it could have been a bit more polished.  I think Renee LaRuse is a talented author having read more books from her and I can honestly say that her books are entertaining and quite erotic.  Which are both winners in my book.

Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.Dragos's son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more Power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there's no doubt about it--he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.

Liam Cuelebre (better known as Peanut) is growing up by leaps and bounds and he may only be a few months old but he is the size of a 5 year old and just as curious and mischievous as any other child that age.  His father is the most powerful man in world and his mother might not seem as powerful, but Liam knows she would move mountains to keep him safe.  But none of that is on his mind right now, Liam has a huge adventure because he is going to school – first grade to be exact.  Liam knows that he is also powerful, even as young as he is, yet he knows that he needs to takes these next steps as just a very intelligent young boy and he really attempts to do that.

 

However, it seems that the gods are testing him to see just how together Liam is this young because he faces several hardships his very first day.  The biggest lesson that Liam learns in the next few hours is that bullies can come in several sizes, guises and ages.  He also learns that there are some battles he can handle and then there are some he needs to bring his big gun back up – his parents.  Liam also learns several other things in a few short hours and most of all he learns just how much his parents love him and what they will do to protect him.

 

Power comes in many forms and one little guy just might become the most powerful being around, well if you don’t count his father, and just like everyone who enters life as a child he has many lessons to learn.  Liam begins his journey to learn all of those lessons in Peanut Goes to School.  I have to say that I fell in love with Liam when he was still becoming a being and that love has only grown as I have seen Liam deal with so many things at such a young age.  This time I watch as Liam learned just what bullies are and that they can come in so many shapes and sizes.  I cheered as Liam proved his dominance to some and knew just when he needed to call for his back up.  And I don’t mean Dragos, I’m talking about Pia here.  Liam also had me smiling because I can see that he is going to be one heck of a handful for not only his parents, but also those who are trying to protect him and let’s not even get into the parents of any of the girls that he will charm.  Peanut Goes to School is a lovely adventure that will have you wanting to just hug Liam to pieces and fist bump his parents on a job well done.

To better serve the customers of her lingerie shop, Madison must explore the pleasures of giving up control . . . After inheriting her sister's North Carolina lingerie shop, Naughty Bits, Madison jumps at the chance to dump her boring finance career and try her luck down South. But even before Madison can settle in, she catches the attention of the owner of the neighboring hardware store. Sexually dominant Logan Scott recognizes a submissive when he sees one. And what he sees, he wants. He presents her with three very tempting gifts--handcuffs, erotic cards, and an open invitation to start her sexual training. She has to accept. After all, how can she hope to sell fantasies to lingerie customers without embracing her own? Now, she's about to discover just how far her fantasies can take her--and how far Logan will go to make every one of them come true.

Madison leaves her high paying job when she finds herself the owner of an erotic lingerie store after her sister’s passing.  Knowing she is out of her element, but unwilling to admit defeat quite yet, Madison tries to settle in, not realizing that there is more to running an erotic business than she could ever have imagined.  Madison wants the shop to continue to be a success but needs guidance on how to help her customers make their buying choices. If she can’t trust her own desires and fantasies, how is she going to sell the fairytale to her clientele?

Logan Scott is ex-military and can spot a submissive from a mile away.  Meeting his deceased friend’s sister, Madison, is like a breath of fresh air – she is definitely submissive and Logan is well, Logan is most definitely dominant.  With just three gifts, Logan hands Madison what she needs – the question is, will she trust herself and Logan enough to explore all those dreams she has and take a chance on being exactly what they both need?

Wowza! Just. Wow.  With Naughty Bits, Joey W. Hill once again takes her readers on a roller coaster ride of sensual proportions.  Naughty Bits is the combination of a series of novellas captured into one sexy, stimulating, and carnally charged book.  I was able to watch Madison’s entire world change when her fantasies came to light with the help of dreamy and dominant Logan.  Who, by the way, was hot enough to scorch the pages of this racy read!  Definitely grab some ice, maybe a fan, and prepare to be engrossed from beginning to end – after all, this is a book by Joey W. Hill!

Keeping a secret from his family isn’t something Kory Kendrick wants, but how does he tell his widowed mother and two younger brothers that he can shift into a white wolf?  It happened the first time when Kory became a teenager, soon after his father’s death.  There’s never been a right time to tell his mom especially with his four year old brother’s battle with cancer taking up everyone’s energy.

 

Walking through the woods behind his home Kory comes across a body, a badly burned body.  Suddenly the body wakes and begs the young shifter’s forgiveness before latching onto his neck to drink his blood.  Call him crazy, however Kory can’t leave the vampire lying helpless in the woods.  Something indefinable makes him want to help.

 

Everyone believes Master vampire Dante Malone perished in the fire.  His entire coven was slaughtered and their home burned to the ground by a deadly enemy.  The guilt eats at him.  Maybe his penance is ending up in suburbia.  Dante hesitates in letting anyone know he’s alive.  It could put his newly found mate and family in jeopardy and that’s something Dante won’t let happen.

 

This is the story fans of author Lynn Hagen will cherish.  Forever Yours is the bomb.  The overall plotline is one that anyone can enjoy, yet Forever Yours manages to bring together characters from a multitude of different series in one mighty celebration of romance.  Book eight deals with love, loss, and a very real cancer scare.  There’s also a crazy, hilarious human foursome to boot.  Forever Yours will have fans doing the Snoopy dance and new readers craving the rest of the series.  Total guilty pleasure!

Charlie Marine has been kidnapped by aliens!  Determined take a vacation in order to recuperate from the loss of her parents and one of her sisters, Charlie plans a trip to Mars in spite of the countless abductions on Earth.  Then, before she knows it, Charlie has been taken to serve as an alien submissive.

 

Dragon shifter Rhyker Aluhira is looking for a mate.  However, he gets more than he bargains for when he is presented with the beautiful Earthling, Charlie.  She is opinionated, feisty, and unwilling to be an obedient mate, yet Rhyker desires her like no other.  Will Rhyker be able to keep Charlie out of danger in a world where women are expected to be submissive without question?  And, more importantly, will he be able to convince her that they belong together?

 

Ensnared got off to a rocky start. At the beginning, I could not stand Charlie. While, I understood her actions and determination, I felt that she could have handled the situation better.  Do not get me wrong.  I admire a strong-willed woman; but, sometimes Charlie’s behavior was unnecessarily over the top. Nevertheless, Charlie redeemed herself by the end of the story.  On the flipside, I did love the constant tug-of-war between Charlie and Rhyker and their flaming hot chemistry.  When they finally did come together in a sexual way, it was explosive and very passionate.  Overall, Ensnared was good read.
