Eeli

(The Brotherhood of Ormarr 03)
by

Bobby Rayne & Steph Marie

Eeli~
I’ve been training my entire life for this; I need to be the best, the best fighter, the best dragon rider in the entire brotherhood. This is what I was born for. The only problem is that my bonded dragon, Bodhi, and I can’t seem to get it together. One minute I think we’re connecting properly, and the next she’s taking off, leading me to the one guy I don’t want to know: Slash. He’s basically the opposite of me in every way, and I don’t get why he’s suddenly everywhere I turn, but I can’t deny how he makes me feel when he looks at me.

Slash~
Three years ago my sister and I had to come to a new town and started new schools without our parents’ unconditional love and support. My uncle’s an uncaring drunk, so I’m doing the best I can to keep us both clothed and fed with only an after school job. If I didn’t have her to live for, the loneliness would be excruciating. Now, with only a few months until graduation, I’ve suddenly made a friend because of my sister, and another guy keeps stumbling into me who I think needs help: Eeli. I don’t understand why no one else sees how oddly he’s behaving, but I can’t deny my attraction for him is growing with every mishap.

Eeli is the third book in The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. While each book focuses on a different couple, the overall story arc continues in the next installment. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest reading in order. Eeli is a m/m NA romance, and is recommended for adults 18 years and older.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each Book in the Brac Village collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Hiding out at the Sheriff’s house as the cute and loveable German Shepard was going so good for him. However the fact that he was a shifter and hiding from a demon might stand in the way. Max accidentally shifts in front of his mate and has a lot of back tracking to do with not only his mate but the sheriff.

Dillion was past annoyed. He always pet and scratched the sheriff’s dog not knowing that he was a shifter nor his mate. Hell he always threatened to steal him but now the mutt was his permanently. To bad his mate was more into deception then anything. That is until he finds out why.

I actually liked this quite a bit and enjoyed the characters. The story moved at an even pace and was full of action and excitement, not to mention some hot sexy times. I was glad to see Panahasi once more as well as his warriors. I also spent time laughing my ass off with most of it. I always liked a good story with humor in it, and this author gives that in spades.

Review: Each book in the Abel’s Bloodline collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Seth had been living on the streets trying to survive. That is until he was taken by vampires and turned into a blood slave. Then to be offered a chance at freedom, but it comes with a price. He was to kill another.

Theron figured it out and decided to help his mate out. There was the problem of someone trying to kill him and that there was a big threat inside their coven. They had a traitor to find.

I actually liked this one a bit more than the first two. It still has a dark tone to it and a lot of pain inside, but it also has a second chance and forgiveness. I found that my attention was actually kept with this story till the end. I will admit that for such a short story it does come off like a full size novel. This author sure does know how to give details in such a short read. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought and can’t wait to see what the next story has going on. I will also admit that this is not one of those types that will be read more than once.

Marcus was likely dead, killed by the Inquisition, or so it was believed. Then the vampire was found, broken beyond words, in an isolated prison fortress. Marcus had never expected to see daylight again, let alone be rescued by his mate. Now he worries he’ll drag Caleb into his darkness.

Caleb was the one who pulled Marcus out of his prison cell, and he’s determined to drag him from the nightmares of his mind as well. After all, that’s what mates are for, and Caleb had lost hope at finding his. And if he can help destroy the entire Inquisition? Well, all the better.

Dealing with Marcus’s physical and mental healing from his trauma is difficult enough, but Inquisition holdouts are causing chaos everywhere, and sinister plots are rampant. Marcus and Caleb have no choice but to fight back. It’s a good thing they are not alone.

And not all of them are friendly.

Clayton Night, a seductive, powerful vampire, desires more than Michael’s blood—he wants Michael for eternity. The mighty Clay Night has fallen, but can his love keep Michael safe from an enemy seeking revenge?

As darkness closes in, Michael has a choice to make—a short mortal life or an eternity of love and danger?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Michael is having dreams of the erotic variety of a sexy man he’s never met. When tragedy strikes with his parents murders and his brother missing Michael decides a new scenery is in order. He moves to Mystic Bay where things go bump in the night.

I loved everything about this story. Dark at times yet sexy and passionate at others this story packs a punch. I was on the edge of my seat as Michael is introduced to the paranormal world. There are great characters introduced such as Paul a guardian and Andy a fire elemental that help Michael try and deal with what is happening.

Several things are on going throughout and Clay, Paul and Andy try and help the best they can. I do not want to give anything away regarding details.

This book had me riveted from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat the entire reading of it. I loved all the characters and how the pieces of the plot intertwined to make for a fantastic and highly recommended read. I am eagerly waiting for the next book to come out to see what happens next in the series.

Blurb: Shane Dunn has double the worries of the other saved souls… Like his son is Nephilim too. Of course a demon so evil would target any child of those he’d already made deals for. And the problems he’s had since coming to the school of people assuming he sold his son’s soul has caused him and Norberto to shy away from others and drama.

And mating would bring drama, but still, Shane has always hoped that his mate was a Hellhound once he learned about them. Dreaming of the love some of the others have.

Colton Sethos is an impatient, loud guy every day of the week, but he likes munchkins. They’re cute, and teaching them martial arts soothes some of the hurt he endured taking souls to Hell. Never would he have thought his mate was one of the parents of his new karate class.

Things start off great, but when Norberto starts acting out and Shane picks his son over Colton, is there really a chance for them to be together forever?

There is something about the way that Flynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.

There is something about the way that Flynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.

Shane was a save soul just like his son. They were both Nephilim and evil wanted them both. When they were first saved and brought to the school everyone wanted to throw blame on Shane, saying he sold his son but that wasn’t the truth. So he kept his son and himself away from the others. That is until one of the hellhounds figures out he is his mate.

Colton is a loud mouth hell hound who wants what he wants right then and now. But he loved teaching the kids. Finding out that one of his student’s father is his mate sends him into a sight to see. But the kid is just a bit jealous of his father and Colton. Going to need to be calm, cool and collected now.

I love the paranormal tone and the little bit of twists that come with it. I had never really thought about a story that not only has angels in it but hellhounds also. When one thinks hellhound, they think evil and death. Now granted they were originally from hell and they can kill who they think need to die, these guys are different. Now even though there is a bit of angst with each character, which at times can drive a reader nuts, there is very little danger. This one is a bit different as is Garnet being in trouble but no outside danger.

Other than that I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

Blurb: Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army.

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy.

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

Warning: This book is M/M paranormal: If you DO NOT like alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their destined beloveds, than this may not be the novel for you.

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story picks up where the last one leaves off. I loved this story about Bell and Alex. The struggles they go through are tense at times. I was intrigued by Alek’s other halves that reside inside him especially Wrath. Though at times this story seems to slow way down and repeat itself I still loved the way it moved forward eventually.

Bell was perfect for Alek though at times his attitude irritated me. Given that these two are mates it was to be expected that everything would not be sunshine and roses between them. Alek’s three entities are at odds with each other which causes a problem. Eventually they learn to work together instead of against each other.

All in all it was an enjoyable read with drama, action and some tense moments. Add that all together and you get an amazing addition to the series at a whole.

Great read.

Blurb: Austen is content with his life even though he has no man to speak of and his sister is the most company he’s been keeping lately. Then, a sexy stranger stops him on the street to ask him out. Hesitant, Austen turns Kieron down, deciding to err on the side of caution. The first time Kieron saw Austen, he was curious as to why a hired killer would be following him. One look and Kieron is smitten. His cat becomes determined to do two things. One, claim Austen for its own and two, protect him from the other dangers stalking him at all costs. And as that danger gets closer, Austen loses his heart to Kieron against his better judgement. However, falling in love has never been more romantic or risky, but it’s too late to stop, not that he can hide from Kieron anyway. Once a hunter has the scent of his prey, nothing can alter his course.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wildcat County collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Things are out of control for Austen. He loves his little sister something fierce, but the rest of the family could drop dead. His boss wants him to take over the shop but he has some conditions that Austen doesn’t like. Then a sexy cat ask him out, and he just wasn’t sure he wanted to try. His last mate left him and hooked up with a female. He just wasn’t to sure about love.

Kieron was working for the good guys while undercover with the bad guys. He has been given instructions on what to do, but a sexy feline has him tied into knots. Then he finds out that Austen’s family just might be involved. He was a hired killer for Logan, but he knows he will protect his mate. That is if he can get his mate to behave.

With this story you definitely have to read the previous books. The characters are so hard to follow and even though they are fighting for good, you just can’t tell. This story was actually a bit easier to follow but still ended up giving me a damn headache. I was glad for the ending and happy to see them together. The writing is well done and the story top rated, but like I said it is a bit confusing. It jumps from one spot to the next.

I can honestly say that I am on the line with this book. I don’t know if I like it or not. It has a darkness to it that I don’t really care for and very little humor to make up for it. I hate to admit that I might just give up on this series, since I have difficulties following it. Oh well we will see what the next one looks like.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series started it but there are many branch offs that are connected to this particular series.

Gracen has found his mate, a mate that not only is not gay but has a child. He also has no clue that Gracen is a wolf shifter, I would say his eyes are about to be opened wide.

Lance actually knows a few of those Gracen hangs out with but has no clue that half of them are shifters of one kind or another. He is a sexy dad who just wants to keep custody of his two year old daughter.

I had expected a bit more trouble from the ex, it went as expected. I have always loved these stories but there are no more surprises to be found in them. I was hoping for a fresh idea to show up but even then these stories are still pretty amazing. I love how the characters just feel around each other. I didn’t really catch a connection through the kid and Gracen though. There just needed something to make it all come together and I didn’t get that. It just felt a bit stiff.

Other than those issues I still had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book by this author will be about.

Blurb: Davis~
It was just another job—at least it was supposed to be—but snaring the feisty blue dragon I’d been contracted to collect and her rider in my trap changed everything. Hunting dragons was my job, and I was damn good at it. I’d never missed a target. Never failed to make a delivery. So why was every step toward turning over my bounty suddenly a struggle? No quarry had ever managed to get under my skin, but something in Zale’s haunting blue eyes called to me like nothing ever had before. 

Zale~
When Itsaso and I were kidnapped, we fought like hell but found ourselves at the dragon hunter’s mercy. He locked my dragon away, leaving me to face captivity alone. Now, all I have to rely on is the training that’s been drilled into me every day for as long as I can remember and biding my time, waiting for Davis to make a mistake. Or my brothers to find and rescue us. But something happened the first time I truly looked in Davis’s eyes, dark pools as deep and enchanting as the sea, and I realized I was in so much more danger than I thought. How could a ruthless dragon hunter be my perfect mate? 

Zale is the second book in The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. While each book focuses on a different couple, the overall story arc continues in the next installment. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest reading in order. Zale is a m/m romance, and is recommended for adults 18 years and older.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Davis is from a clan outside the Brotherhood of Ormarr, a clan who is determined to stop the wraiths and the people who lead them. Ordered to capture a man and his dragon caught on film leading a wraith attack Davis accepts the mission with glee, but the man he kidnaps is tempting in a way that Davis can’t resist no matter how hard he tries.

Zale is enjoying some peace with his dragon Saso when he’s captured and Saso bound to his arm, all Zale can think about is that the Order has captured him. But as time passes he finally discovers why he’s been caught… and it leaves him astounded. His captor may be his mate but Zale won’t let that stop him from escape.

This is an excellent addition to The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. We rejoin the Ormarr brothers with Zale’s story and boy is it a doozy. Zale is kinda lonely, wishing he has what his older brother Azaran has but what he gets is kidnapped and told that he has to answer for his crimes. Davis longs for something long lost and when he’s tasked to bring in a dragon rider who has betrayed his own kind Davis is determined to make him pay.

Now as you know the bond between mates is strong but both Zale and Davis fight it as they view each other as the enemy, but it does help them to listen to each other and get to the bottom of the problem.

This is an excellent story that progresses far quicker that the first book Azaran, in Azaran we were given the background and history and now in Zale the overall ARC of the storyline is more fleshed out, progressing very quickly to the next step but not giving away any secrets, so there’s still much to look forward to in the series concerning the overall ARC.

Zale’s story has him finding his mate but gives him challenges to overcome, Davis isn’t just a filler character either he has his own devastating background but he also has a shocking discovery which leads to an astounding scene that greatly pleases. Now as a couple they are fantastic, they overcome their rocky beginning are hot together but don’t rush things between them. It’s a nicely paced relationship (well for fated mates anyway LOL)

Michelle Frost has written an interesting and exciting story that flows beautifully and keeps you turning the pages. It has excitement and a dash of danger, with a great storyline that expands on the series ARC whetting your appetite for more. An excellent read for anyone who loves paranormal romance.

But when Cal shows up at Francis’s apartment, shot and needing a place to hide, Francis’s life takes a drastic turn, and he finds himself, and Cal, on the run.

Cal’s grandfather tried to raise a killer, but that wasn’t who Cal was. He wanted out of the family business, and tried to set up a meeting with some unsavory men to end their partnership, but getting out of that kind of life is never easy. Cal finds himself on the run with a bullet in him and nowhere to go. Although he didn’t want his mate to get involved, he goes to Francis for help. But they’re not alone in their struggle to survive, and soon Cal and Francis find out that they have to fight for the happiness they so desperately want together.

Review: Each book in the Brac Village. collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is a cut off from Brac Pack and I would suggest starting with that series first. It is also connected with several other series as well.

Francis owed Haven so he heads over to cut some guys hair and damn if the man was walking sin. To bad he was trying to get that asshat of an ex out of his head, the damn man dumped him the night before. Then the sexy as sin shows up at his house shot up, well he was in for a big surprise. Cal has been raised to run the business his grandfather had. To bad for the old fart, he had no interest running weapons. He just wanted to run the normal, every day, legal side of the business. When his normal hair stylist couldn’t make it, he couldn’t believe it when his mate walks in instead. He had no clue how to keep them both safe and just wait for the surprise to show up.

It pretty much followed a direct path as the other stories in this series had. Humor, ok lets face it they are funny as hell, danger, excitement, action packed and not to mention some hot sexy times are all rolled into this story. The characters are quite quirky and will definitely have your head in the clouds. The down side is it felt a little rushed to me. It was very entertaining as one would expect in Lynn Hagen’s books.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it will be read many times over. I can’t wait to see what the next book has going on.

Blurb: Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice himself is sometimes able to control.

His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls, and the determined pacing inside him were overtaking him.

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause any more chaos. At over one hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

‘Natural enemies can’t be mates.’ Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

Contains mature themes.

Review: When I was given A.E. Via’s Prophesy I didn’t know what to expect. I think I may have heard of the author before, but I’ve never read or heard any of their books in the past. However, I do love me a good shifter/vampire romance, and that made me keen to get through this.

The book starts when we meet Justice Volkov, the Alpha Zenith, i.e. the alpha of all alphas, for the wolf shape shifters. He is a powerful man, despite being only in his early thirties, and his wolf is just as powerful and just as formidable as the man. He doesn’t want to be weak and he wants to lead by example, so when it seems that shifters are causing issues, he wants to get straight into action to fix the problem. His wolf is almost uncontrollable when he meets and rejects his true mate. Justice feels like he has a lot of things to do before he can settle down with a mate, let alone his true mate. It just makes it worse in his human mind that his true mate is the king of the vampires. His wolf longs for his mate, even if the human struggles at first.

Chadwick Bentley, aka Wick, is the king of the vampires. He’s over one hundred years old. With the violence between the wolves and the vampires increasing, he is forced to go to America from his home base in England to deal with the situation personally. That is how he meets his beloved, his mate, and things do not go well at first. On top of this, Wick’s always known that he was different, other than being the king of the vampires, but it seems that his mating opens a whole can of worms. These guys have to work together to get their relationship on an even keel, as well as figure out what the heck is happening in the paranormal world and the new dangers arising that they have to deal with as a team.

Justice and Chadwick are a wonderful couple with explosive chemistry. Even though I didn’t know what to expect, I don’t think I expected the great character development of both the guys, despite the true mate situation usually meaning that we are getting an insta-love storyline. But there were plenty of struggles and that was awesome. I feel that also there was a definite difference shown in the age gap between the two men, because Wick showed a lot more maturity and poise than Justice. Although I’m sure if this is meant to be a product of their ages or of their species. Regardless, I liked it because you got to see them both “grow up” in different ways.

The audio performance by Nathaniel Black was sublime. Nathaniel Black does something that many narrators have trouble with, a credible accent for any foreign main character that didn’t take me a good ten minutes to get used of a slightly off accent. Let’s face it, going between American and English accents, as in the case of this book, can be odd. Beyond brilliant accents, Black also provided the perfect tone and timbre required for the tough and violent world of shape shifters and vampires in a world where interspecies relations is on the cusp of something big and catastrophic.

This was a surprisingly awesome read for me. This is great for people that love a shifter romance, although I felt that there is touch more depth, angst and darkness than some of the books out there, it’s definitely one of the better paranormal/shape shifter romances I’ve recently read. Since we already know the couple of the second book, I’m keen to find out what happens there too.

Zale

(The Brotherhood of Ormarr 02)

Michelle Forst

Davis – It was just another job—at least it was supposed to be—but snaring the feisty blue dragon I’d been contracted to collect and her rider in my trap changed everything. Hunting dragons was my job, and I was damn good at it. I’d never missed a target. Never failed to make a delivery. So why was every step toward turning over my bounty suddenly a struggle? No quarry had ever managed to get under my skin, but something in Zale’s haunting blue eyes called to me like nothing ever had before.

Zale – When Itsaso and I were kidnapped, we fought like hell but found ourselves at the dragon hunter’s mercy. He locked my dragon away, leaving me to face captivity alone. Now, all I have to rely on is the training that’s been drilled into me every day for as long as I can remember and biding my time, waiting for Davis to make a mistake. Or my brother’s to find and rescue us. But something happened the first time I truly looked in Davis’s eyes, dark pools as deep and enchanting as the sea, and I realized I was in so much more danger than I thought. How could a ruthless dragon hunter be my perfect mate?

A.E. Via

Shifter and Vampire True Mates story.

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army.

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy.

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

Warning: This book is M/M paranormal: If you DO NOT like alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their destined beloveds, than this may not be the novel for you.

Review: Each book in the Eternal Flames Maddox collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is connected to Eternal Flame as well as a couple others.

Casimir lost his wife and his parents to the war along time ago. In fact they had though that the dragons and phoenix’s. He thought it was just his luck to loose all he loved. When they found out that several survived including his brother he was jolted in surprise. Then to find out that his wife had left him with two sons, he was terrified. Then to find out he had a mate, he just thought he would loose them all, so he kept his distance. Then Sut is trapped in a cave in and well he let his heart rule.

Sut had given his heart to Cas but feared that it was all a dream. To be his dirty little secret, well to hell with that, Sut was giving up. Then when the world tilted and he was stuck in a cave, well the voice of his mate kept him sane. However fear still came forward not knowing what to expect from Cas.

First off this was probably the best book out of the whole series and that was saying something, cause this series rocked. I was reading and got to the point of Cas singing, and went and put on the song. So imagine the story going around in your head while the song is playing just made the story stand out even more. I felt for Sut and was glad that Casimir got his head out of his ass, but damn the ending was funny as hell. Who knew fate had a twisted sense of humor.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it is one of those types of stories that will be read many times over. I can’t wait to read the next book. I would definitely recommend this book and the others connected to it.

Blurb: Emperor Chrysander Draconis rules not only the dragons but the entire Council of Sorcery and Shifters. From the moment Fate selected him, he has devoted himself to ensuring his people thrive and prosper. His life revolves around duty; nothing stands in the way of his dedication to his job. One of the most prominent issues on Chrysander’s plate is the lack of hybrid drakelings that have survived the road from man to beast. When he receives word that one such rare soul is living in an obscure tribe, he races to help.

Ellery of the Fen-Lynthi elves is different from the rest of his people. He does not understand why his ears are shorter, why he stands taller than the others. Then his mother explains why the other children mock him and call him a mongrel: his father, a dragon, abandoned her the moment he learned of Ellery’s impending birth. With his mother’s often-fragile mental state, Ellery does not know if he can trust her words, but they are all he has. He spends his days ostracized, doing what he can to improve his lot.

Chrysander is overjoyed to find his mate among the Fen-Lynthi, but when it is confirmed that Ellery is half dragon, he is terrified Ellery will be ripped apart by the beast inside him. Regardless, Chrysander proceeds with their matebond ceremony, though he delays the event, believing duty demands they bypass elven tradition. This troubles Ellery, and he wonders if moving forward is what Chrysander truly wants. Their schedules present them with little opportunity to spend time together, which gives him further cause for worry. If that isn’t enough, Ellery is apprehensive over his new role as emperor. Chrysander and Ellery must confront their fears and learn to face the world as a united and loving front. In doing so, not only will they be able to defy the impossible, but they will change the world.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story. Chrysander finally gets his story and meets his mate Ellery. However he his duties get in the way of their mating but Ellery just takes it in stride. These two needed to talk to another. They only seemed to catch snatches of time with each other in between meetings, shopping, etc. I really felt for Ellery but Ellery soon finds a best friend and a champion in Tiri, Zane’s mate.

I have to admit to Tiri stealing my heart in this book. I was incensed at the way his chieftain treated his people. I do hope they can save those left behind. Tiri was smart, stubborn, sarcastic and generally a happy person. I really loved how the author wove the story around these couples with all the twists and turns that were revealed the story flowed off the page. I really enjoyed the tension, the mystery and suspense that revolved around the group for one thing or another.

I have to admit to not caring for Wesley in this addition. I think he let his job go to his head and assumed everyone would just do what he said. I especially didn’t care for the things he said about Ellery or Tiri. But, I have all ideas he is about to find out what happens when you mess with dragons mates if the plan he devised at the end of the book follows through.

This series just keeps getting better and better with each new book. I am in awe of how well the story is told and the characters that are involved with each new thrilling read. My favorite series to date.

Highly recommended.

I was stalking my mate and I had good reason. He was bonded to someone else, but that didn’t absolve me of my duty to him, or my obsession. Making sure he was happy and safe, even if it wasn’t with me, was just something I had to do. When I discovered he wasn’t, all bets were off.

I’d given up the dream of a mate in exchange for the life of my son. It was an exchange I willingly gave to have Tommy with me. When our lives were threatened, escaping with Tommy was my only option. I just wasn’t sure where we were going to escape to or who could help us, but someone had to. I’d already lost my mate. I couldn’t lose my son.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Assassins Inc. collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Stalker met his mate around three years ago but let him go. That did not mean he forgot . In fact he basically stalked his mate and kept watch. Jojo had been forced to get married. He wanted to go with Stalker but there was his child on the way. When Myra died in child birth, he just couldn’t make a move. However when his father made another threat, his ass was out. Stalker is going to be a dad.

It is so hard to give a bit of description without giving the story away. Stormy Glenn has always been one of my favorite authors to read. This is probably one of my top series that I can guarantee will always be read many times over. FYI, Bob is still my favorite character. The story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I do wish there was a bit more action and danger to it, but it was still perfect for me. The characters are quite charming and lets just say their reaction to who the alpha is, is always a laugh. When I read these stories it almost makes me go out an buy a cat, I did say almost. Taking a cat for a walk at the park is always funny as hell.

I can honestly say that this story will be read many times over and I hope that it will always be that way. I had a blast reading this and damn the guys are just sexy. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and would recommend reading the whole series.
