Captive Wings

(Anima 02)

Ana Raine

Liberation from one master might mean enslavement to another.

For centuries, the Kuro swan shifters have been the unwilling servants of the Dryma faeries. That changed when Prince Tristan of the Dryma attempted to sacrifice himself for Royal Kuro Kanji—his lover and mate.

The Sidhee, seeing Tristan’s actions to free the swans as a betrayal, launch a devastating attack that leaves most of the Kuro and Dryma dead or imprisoned. The fate of the swans rests entirely on Kanji’s shoulders, and he must somehow devise a plan that will protect both his partner and his tribe as the war with the Sidhee rages. It won’t be easy for mortal enemies to become allies, and Kanji is beginning to despair of ever waking Tristan from his deathlike slumber. And neither the Kuro nor the Dryma can compete with the Sidhee when it comes to brutal violence.

When Kanji finds a small boy asleep at the bottom of a lake, his hope for reuniting with Tristan is rekindled. But what is the boy, and can his magic turn the tide against a seemingly unstoppable enemy?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: There is something very kinky about these Christmas stories. I have never laughed as hard as I do reading them. There is so much humor in them that will have you laughing your ass off.

Now who would want to leave the North Pole and Santa? Santa’s oldest son, Xander that is. He wants to go out and explore.

However Walter might just change his mind, maybe. Walter has the best job and probably the funniest. He makes sex toys and boy can he use them. These two just come together and might just melt the pole.

It is a funny little story and very cute. It is so damn sweet, well let’s say you might need this special little dentist to help you out. I had a fun time reading it. I wished that it was longer though, because it just gives you a taste. I had a blast with it and would recommend it to everyone.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is a beautifully wonderful book – I just want to gush about how sweet it is and give away the entire plot! It’s nice and short, too. So it’s a quick read, but all the t’s have been crossed and the i’s dotted, so there are no niggling questions on my behalf. Strangely, too, despite loving the story, I didn’t feel the need that there was something missing.

This is a poignant glimpse into Akai Greyson’s life. After his parents died when he was nine, he was in foster care until he became legal. This story is a combination of flash backs (triggered by either objects or stray words spoken in the book), with Akai telling the story of his current search for his nameless best friend.

If you read it, you’ll work out what is going to happen in the end, but the build up of Akai and Collin’s relationship is wonderful. We also witness Akai as he tackles his demons, which is where Collins comes in and helps Akai – a lot. The story was geared around reminders of Akai’s childhood including snow (or lack of), jars of water (you’ll see the relevance) and sledding, which makes the story just seem so much more personal.

Shorty’s Review:  ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts

Ian works at a bar his boyfriend, Calvin, owns. But, Calvin isn’t out to anyone, so he keeps Ian a secret until his sister comes to town and finds out. Ian wants more from Calvin but doesn’t know how to let his boyfriend know. After seeing Ezra again, he longs for what the sexy man he had a crush on in high school can give him. Ian is cute and is a submissive. When they finally get together, it’s hot and explosive. Calvin ends up beating Ian up after his sister finds out about them and threatens to tell everyone.

I found this story to be somewhat intriguing. Ezra introduces Ian to BDSM, which he craves more of after experiencing it.

The sex was hot and steamy.

Gigi’s Review:  ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts

This was a hot, fun story about the one who got away. Old high school crush returns and dominates all of Ian’s thoughts, and eventually his sexual desires too! Glad Ezra did step in because Ian sure is settling for a jerk with his current closeted boyfriend. Things get heated when the current jerkface boyfriend sees that Ian is considering Ezra’s attentions, his family takes notice of their relationship, and the guy gets violent.

Moral of the story: give that high school crush a second chance, and don’t’ settle for vanilla when what you really need is to get your kink on.

This is a short, fun, and sexy little read. A bit extreme when the first sexually dominant scene involves sounding rods, wow, quite the jump there! But still enjoyable.

Blurb: While working on his Master’s degree in psychology, Carson is offered an exclusive summer internship at a private research hospital. He can’t imagine a better career opportunity. But Harbor Oaks hides a dark secret. Carson soon discovers patients are being held against their will. They’re all shape shifters the government fears present a danger to society.

After meeting Tate, a shy, quiet doctor with an agenda all his own, Carson begins to question his own sanity. Carson soon realizes he’s really a subject of the scientist’s experiments, rather than an intern.

Carson knows what’s going on at Harbor Oaks is wrong, but to challenge the hospital’s policies could endanger his own life. More importantly, he could lose Tate forever.

Review: Ana has a pretty good imagination and can spin a wonderful story with it. I was amazed at this story. It caught my attention from the start and kept my attention all the way to the end. I had spent most of my day being bored till I came across this cute little story. It made my day get better, when I can lose myself into a book and can imagine what is going around me. I loved the way Carson and Tate interacted with each other. Carson takes an exclusive summer internship at a private research hospital to earn his Master’s Degree in Psychology. He finds out all of the patients are shape shifters that the government thinks is dangerous.

Tate is a doctor there with a different agenda. Carson starts asking questions and finds out he isn’t there as an intern but as a scientist experiment. Carson starts feeling things for Tate, but how can he keep him and get help for everyone there. What Tate is hiding is important for the changelings best interest. To keep them all alive and safe from those who want to hurt them.

This story has a lot of interesting surprises. I love the twist it has and can’t wait to read more. This is the only thing I really hated, that I was left without a true ending. It keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait to read book two of this series because I think it will be a hit.

Purchase Link:


Review: Levi sees Micah happy in a new relationship and secretly wishes he could find one also.  The books start out with one of his clients telling him this is his last visit and that he has met someone. Then is skips to Levi and another ex-escort that has gotten a regular job going out for drinks. Levi senses his friend has an ulterior motive for the visit and finds he wants him to meet his boss Wesley that is looking for a sub. Levi is wary since his last D/s relationship went bad.

I found the story interesting and the sex hot, but there were things that sort of left me hanging. Such as the beginning scene.  We never find out why this client left or anything, that space could have been used to ease Wesley and Levi into a relationship. As it is, everything moves so fast.  It’s hard to see Levi fall so easily into his submissive state and trust Wesley in a day’s time.

I will say, I did enjoy the story. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t stop once I started. Wanting to see where things were leading, and why Levi was afraid of being tied up.  The sex between Levi and Wesley was hot, too. If you like short stories that move fast, Escorts, millionaires, D/s Relationships, bondage and hot mansex this is for you.

Reviewer: Eric

Blurb: While shopping for candy for his friend’s Halloween party, Preston saves a strange black cat from a group of teenage boys. Overcome with a desire entirely new to him, Preston takes the black cat home and discovers things are not always what they seem, especially on Halloween.

The cat, a demon named Caleb, has been searching for his mate for months and can’t help but be fascinated with sweet Preston. He’s determined to drag Preston down to his home in the underwater demon world. Now Preston must choose between his mortal life or one full of demons — and love.

Purchase Link:

Review: Preston is planning on heading over to his good friend’s house for her fourth annual Halloween party when he comes across a cat in distress. He rescues the cat and ends up taking it home with him. As soon as he gets home, he finds himself shocked to see the cat having turned into a sexy man who made him both confused and incredibly turned on.

This Hot Flash goes to show what happens when dangerous men trigger a hidden desire. It provides the excellence of an erotic romance and the enjoyment of hidden desire and what it can bring forward.

I’m the kind of person that loves a well-paced erotic story to sweep me away from a long day and this one is perfect for that sort of occasion. I find it to be a fantastic read, a quick one, and well written.

I would certainly recommend this for anyone that loves to read quick stories and become enthralled by an amazing romance during Halloween.

Reviewer: Cat

Blurb:Micah’s job as a host is to be whatever his clients want him to be and he loves it — especially because pretending to be someone else is better than remembering what he’s running from.

Mr. Daniel Hart, a client who had been expecting a female host is suddenly thrown into Micah’s world and won’t stop exploring until he knows Micah’s secrets.

Unable to stay away from Daniel, Micah continues to return to high society functions and is therefore reminded of the terrible scar on his chest and the man who gave it to him. Micah wants nothing more than to belong to the artistic Daniel, but being with him could mean having to face his dangerous past.

Purchase Link:

Review: Micah is a paid escort. He is hired to accompany Mr Hart. The blurb pretty much says all I can without giving spoilers.

I truly hate to say I didn’t care much for this story. The blurb sounded good and I had good expectations at least for a good love story. I was sadly disappointed.  I didn’t feel that the story was consistent at all. It starts out with Micah on a paid job and a client wanting to have sex. Micah says he doesn’t do that and doesn’t. The client wants to see him again and Micah says no. The next day he is sent on a date by the agency and the man Mr Hart, sees him and is surprised he expected a girl but  doesn’t seem to mind at all, they get in the limo and  end up doing blow jobs in the  limo,. Ok, so there goes his not putting out for clients and he had said he hasn’t had sex in a long time. Both people are head-over heels. Already and they barely spoke? Even most insta-love there is a bit more to it. Then there is his ominous past. This eluded me to a mystery. All I will say is I was once again let down. There are several more inconsistencies and contradictions galore, but I won’t give away the entire story.

If you like, stories of paid escorts, artists, art shows, hot sex and love at first sight you may like this.
