When the dangers become too great, they run away into the dark woods, and they come across a cottage made completely of sweet treats. What could one taste hurt? Well, it stirs the handsome witch that lives inside. Fearing his wrath, they run straight into the brutal orphanage owner they were fleeing from before. Their unlikely hero is none other than the witch, but does the handsome magician want to save them or devour them? As it turns out, a bit of both.

But when the cottage the witch is bound to is set on fire, Harris and Grant face a terrible decision. For the only way the witch can be free is by eating one of their hearts…

Review: I loved this take on Hansel and Gretel, it was unique and fascinating with amazing characters that really blossomed the story into a fantastic read. Harris and Grant grew up in a orphanage. Neither have had a great time of it as the head of the place is a cruel man.

The boys finally run away and find Dec, a witch in the woods. Unfortunately Mr. D finds them and what follows is decisions and futures to be made.

Twists and turns along with an amazing story line had me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. I loved it.

Fantastic read.

Whilst he revels in being treated like a prince, he has to accommodate some strange and unusual sexual requests, and before long he’s caught up in a web of espionage between a transport conglomerate and a client who is developing a futuristic technology that will change the future of transport forever.

Review: After breaking up with Rick, Berkley moves on with his live and takes a job with Peter as a high end escort. His first Client is Sebastian. Sebastian has invented a way to travel, teleportation, without the the need for loss of hours in a car or plane. I found it intriguing. The connection between these two men was hot.

Frederick is the next client Berkley meets and finds out he is working for an organization that want to stop Sebastian. I figured it was no coincidence Frederick meets Berkley when he’s asked to steal the plans for the teleportation. Frederick and Berkley have a stronger connection.

I liked this addition to the series. It felt more like a spy story at times which I enjoyed.

Great read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the seventh book in the Outlaw MC series. It’s a fantastic addition to the series as we learn about Valentine, Romeo’s brother, and Grim. Valentine has been in prison on earth since he was 16 years old. He has learned the hard way not to trust anyone until he meets Grim.

Grim is an Outlaw MC who used to be on the other side of the law. He feels guilty about those years but in my opinion he couldn’t help what others did. But he most definitely should have told Valentine who he was. These two set the pages on fire with their intensity.

This book starts out with a nail-biting scene and continues the same pace throughout the entire story. There is no shortage of action packed scenes with edge of your seat fight scenes not to mention a lot of flirting and sexy action between Grim and Valentine.

My heart broke during the telling of what had happened to Liam. I so wanted to do physical harm to those guards.

I loved the entire book and can’t wait to see what else happens in this series as Outlaw prepares to go get Liam from prison.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: Sometimes our wildest dreams come true.

In the tumultuous summer of 1808, Spain and England are close to war and four young lovers are close to ecstasy.
To carve out an independent life with the woman she loves, ANNA knows she must leave her quiet Spanish convent to become a courtesan. To gain experience, she sets her sights on . . .

SEBASTIAN, whose powerful, aristocratic confidence suits Anna’s mercenary goals. But his arrogance masks a craving for submission that Anna instinctively satisfies. Sebastian soon begs for her hand in marriage, even if it means sharing her with . . .

PIA, who trusts Anna completely—with her body and her future—until she learns of Anna’s hasty marriage. Pia questions their commitment to each other as they leave for London to meet . . .

FARLEIGH, the seemingly feckless duke who thinks he’s over Sebastian, the potent Spanish soldier he bedded two years ago.
What begins as a series of erotic escapades soon evolves into a deep, unbreakable bond. Two men and two women who yearn to explore are about to make their wildest dreams come true.

Review: This was quite a read, fun, enjoyable, and somewhat inspiring.

So let’s make it clear from the start for people who dismiss the blurb and/or don’t really understand it. The story is set on the 19th century and the main character is a woman raised in a convent in Spain. Back then women had no power whatsoever, no freedom to do as they pleased, and they were simply assets and “jewels” in a “man’s world” surrounded by rules and restrictions. Our main character Anna is a dominant woman living in a world where her dreams to live with her lover Pia are quite impossible. Her only way to achieve that in her mind is to become the mistress of a wealthy aristocrat, gather as much jewelry and money as she can, and life with her lover as two spinsters somewhere remote in the future.

That seemed like the only feasible option until she met Sebastian. Sebastian is not only a man in a man’s world, he is also a capable soldier and a wealthy aristocrat. You’d think he has it easy, but he is as much a prisoner of his life and “duties” as Anna and Pia, with the difference that he’s more let’s say able to live a little behind the scenes in utmost secret. He craved for a life where he could be dominated by his loved one, but such dreams are impossible even for him. Until he meets Anna and the possibility to have even a fraction of his dreams, come true is right around the corner.

It is astonishing how beautifully written this book is when it comes to pointing out society’s control and rule over one’s life. I seriously loved the creative and light way all these things were brought to life in this story. Sebastian’s submissiveness allows Anna to take her lover Pia with her, and the three of them, under the disguise of matrimony and friendship achieve what would have been a pipe dream. They become a chain of sorts, one depending on the other and the last link comes to bind them in the form of Farleigh, the English Duke (and previous Dom/lover of Sebastian) who is severely hurt by his “duty’s” commend and his crushed dreams. His longing of freedom within his “golden bounds” is drowned in shame and society’s shunning of anything that is not “black and white”, so when every fantasy he’s harbored deep in his soul has the possibility of coming to life, he can’t even accept it for what it is, his fears that it can’t be done tainting his soul.

Every single one of these characters is unique though they share the same passions. They make it so easy for you to like them and take this journey along with them. Anna is domineering and quite exquisite in her ambitions and determination. Pia, utterly sensuous in her abandonment to Anna’s will, but strong enough to have her mind and wishes when it’s out of the bedroom. Sebastian is glorious (I wish for such a husband myself) hot as hell too, and Leigh, oh dear Lord what a charming man. I wish he had a bit more space in the book, for poor guy came in nearly the end of the story.

What was a fem/fem relationship in the beginning turned into a steaming hot ménage with two girls and a fantastic man who loved to please, ending in a glorious quartet that made you sigh in tandem with these two couples. The sensuous flow of erotic scenes was never-ending, the eroticism each and every one of them gave was pant-worthy, the way they combined into/with each other was magical, and the final balance had me wistfully sighing. There was no lack of envy while reading this I’m not ashamed to admit. As much as I’m not into F/F reading, this book managed to grip me in its web and not let go until the very end.

Recommended to all who enjoy queer, ménage, swinging and all in between.

Blurb: Xeno has an exciting new relationship with five gorgeous men, but resistance comes from an unexpected angle—his own family.

After moving in with his five lovers, Xeno wants to share his happiness about his new relationship with his family. Since his parents are part of a ménage, he expects them to approve of his unconventional romance.

He’s shocked when his family reacts harshly to the news—his sister even fires him from her bookstore where he works. Heartbroken and jobless, Xeno has no idea how to fix what’s gone wrong. And the more he questions his family’s reaction, the more he realizes that they’re keeping explosive secrets about his supernatural heritage. Secrets that won’t stay buried for long

Review: This is book two in this series and you need to read it in order so that you will have a clue on what is going on.

Xeno was raised by two fathers and one mother. So when he started his relationship with five gorgeous men, he thought he would have no problems. However, he was very wrong. First, his sister goes off on him, which shut him down just a bit. Then when he went home to visit his family, his fathers were just as bad.

Niko talks Xeno into going home to see his family. Rex is the head of their fae family, but they all have equal parts in the relationship. So since, he was more easy-going he thought that it would be easier for Xeno if he went with him. What he had not expected was for Xeno’s mom to be something of a legend in the fae community. The only problem they had was, no one had bothered to tell Xeno anything of his heritage. No one had told Xeno that he was fae.

There was dangers coming, they can all feel it. So they decided that all of them need to get back to the Vineyard and have the discussion they knew was needed. Xeno had to know what dangers were coming.

The only problem I had with this story is it left me hanging. It basically left Xeno without any ideas. I am not really sure if I like this series or not. So I will wait for book three to see if it gives me any other ideas. I made the mistake of not reading book one so I started to get lost at the beginning not knowing who everyone was, but I caught on really quick. I did like the story just didn’t like to be left with more questions than answers.

I would definitely be recommending this story to anyone who loves ménage and multiple partners. This story had five hot men who love one another, some amazing sex, and lots of great feelings in it. You really got to read it.

Blurb: Madigan Parker thought accepting a relationship with his five guardian angels was difficult. He’s learning that being in a relationship with all of them is more difficult as personalities clash. Bren still distrusts Cross, Yuri believes he’s the odd man out, and Michel is just too nice to put his foot down with any of them. While Dex is the only one admitting to the mutual affection and attraction that is growing between them, Madigan has his hands full.

He wants to take back his life and reopen his business. But being a baker proves difficult as old enemies circle closer, and keeping his lovers safe proves to be a lot trickier than Madigan originally thought. Torn between the life he had and the new life awaiting him, he has to decide if staying in the town he calls home is worth the risk to his men and to his heart.

Review: Madigan thought that by accepting and bonding with his angels that he would be safe but it doesn’t work properly if the angels aren’t bonding as well, so Madigan gives them a helping hand but the hunters are determined and finds a new way to hunt.

This is a well-written novella that gives us the hot sex and interesting story line that we expect from Jana Downs (you spoilt us ;-)). Madigan is upset to learn that he can’t go back to work like he wants to because the angels haven’t been bonding properly so he sets the law down and gives his angels a helping hand. Dex, Michel, Yuri, Cross and Bren all try to come to terms with the relationship but it isn’t smooth riding for them and there are more than a few hiccups as they all try to form a relationship that suits them all.

These characters are all great men err… angels and Nephilim each with a personality that is uniquely them, each one has his own doubts to overcome as they bond with each other and Madigan has a lot to think about because when asked he had never even thought of admitting to his mother his new relationship. We get lots of really hot sex between these men some one on one, some ménage but always a hot and passionate experience.

I loved the added characters and the plot twist with the hunters was great and the new information that they received has added an interesting quest that I can’t wait to see unfold. There’s danger, injuries, hurt feelings, explanations and making up sex ;-). So if you enjoy any of that then I recommend you get this book and enjoy. Happy reading.

Blurb: A week to prepare for battle hardly seems like much, but a week is all Madigan Parker and his lovers have to prepare for the battle to save Urun. Awakening Madigan’s powers is just the beginning as the former baker gives himself over to the trainers to make him the leader of an army before the week is out. Practicing with Scepta enables him to achieve more than he ever thought possible, but new power brings new gifts and problems that he wasn’t expecting to deal with.

As Madigan learns more about himself and his angelic powers, his lovers try to hold the fear of failure at bay as they work toward their goals. When Madigan finally starts to believe that he might actually be able to win the unwinnable, his lovers reluctantly start to feel that same hope. However, as the pawns fall neatly into place, unexpected challengers, and new allies may end the war before it’s even begun.

Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order. Madigan, Cross, Bren, Michel, Yuri and Dex are gearing up for the coming war with Azrael and his Hunters. All the angels are finding it hard to allow Madigan into danger but they know he has to open his powers and gain control of them if they are to win, they are all feeling the pressure but as more angels are pledged to fight by the Archangels they begin to feel hope. Surprise allies come into play but first Madigan has to prove his worth and if he doesn’t learn to call upon his powers the war maybe over even before, it has begun.

This is a great addition to the His Guardian Angels series with the war rapidly approaching Madigan and his angels manage to still find time to love. As the war approaches, Madigan, and his angels discover that they have many more allies than they ever imagined, Madigan has to open his powers and with the help of allies old and new he begins to get a grip on them. Cross, Bren, Michel, Dex and Yuri find they have lots to keep them occupied as they help to train the Nephilim for the upcoming battle, but the fear that Madigan isn’t going to be ready lingers. 

Oh damn this is a steamy addition to the series which is packed with surprises. Jana Downs pulls out all the stops as sides are taken and allies are forged as the war approaches, she has given us something to look forward to as Madigan’s powers come to the fore. We see our favorite angels coming together in support and love, we see them handling their fears with a reaffirmation of their love, and we watch as amazing allies come to their aid. Their sex lives don’t falter one bit as Madigan uses his powers in a sensual way and boy are they smoking hot. The ending is one that you want to choke the author for…. I wanted to cry in sheer frustration.

I recommend this to those that love mixing it up with your paranormals, watching as your pages start to smoke because of the hot sex, seeing the army come together and a pure frustrating ending that ends much too soon.
