The Alpha’s Secret Mate by Ravenna Tate

mate

The last thing Makenna expected when she followed the fanatical group from her village into the woods, with the intention of spying on them, was to find her mate. A blood moon lynx from the very village rumored to have caused untold trouble for her own people, no less. She should run again, as far away as possible, but she can’t. A mate is a mate, after all, and this man is hers. No doubt about it.

Stone Rockwell has kept his mate a secret in order to protect her and his friends from further trouble, until his world is turned upside down soon after mating with the captivating leopard. The reason she fled her village is more complicated than he first realized, and Makenna’s true ancestry is tied to an ancient legend. When Makenna’s life is threatened, Stone may have to lose his own to save hers.

Be Warned: anal sex, spanking, rimming

reviewfbknotty1

This is the third book in the Blood Moon Lynx series by Ravenna Tate, and it answers questions from the first two books as well as ties up any mysteries that may have been lurking about. Stone and Makenna’s mating was shrouded in secrecy thanks to the village she came from and as it turns out, her ancestry.

Arizona faces the council for his killing of the two jaguars that tried to kill his mate Gillian. And if Stone thought the surprises from his mate were over, she has another one for him. So there’s lots going on in this book that makes it a compelling read for sure.

I have to admit, I did give the author a little grief about the shifters wanting to get their mates pregnant so fast. I’m one of those, wait a while, enjoy each other first types. Which, seems to be pretty unpopular in romance lately and drives me batty. But shifters are animal, and they feel the need to procreate.

As always, Ravenna writes a riveting page turner that goes right into my keeper pile.

This book is a 5 star Growler

Excerpt:

Shivers ran up and down her spine as they ripped at each other’s clothes, stopping only to devour each other’s mouths in kisses so molten, she expected the sofa to catch on fire. As Stone tossed her shoes across the room, something fell to the floor and shattered, but Makenna didn’t bother looking around to see what it was. She was lost in the heady sensations of her mate’s hands and mouth on her body, and nothing else was allowed inside her thoughts.

“Try not to shift,” he said, sliding his tongue up one leg then the other. He stopped short of licking her pussy, which made Makenna crazy with desire.

“I can’t help it.”

“Yes, you can.”

She grasped his hair and moaned loudly when he brushed his fingers at the junctures of each thigh and the skin next to her labia. This was torture. All she wanted was his dick inside her. “Stone … please!”

A soft chuckle made her heart race. “This is the first time we’ve been completely alone for weeks. We’re taking our time, my love.”

So, it did bother him that everyone in the Benedict house could hear them. She hadn’t realized that until right now. “It’s so hard for me to wait, Stone.”

Fluttery kisses covered the insides of her thighs. His breath was so hot against her skin. Makenna’s clit throbbed now, and all he’d have to do was touch her and she’d climax. No doubt about it.

“You’re worth the wait, my love.” One quick lick up her wet slit gave her hope, but before she could do so much as moan, he moved higher and grasped her breasts. Makenna wrapped her arms and legs around him as he gently bit her nipples, covering them with licks in between the nibbles.

“I can’t get enough of you.”

“I hope you never do.”

The tender look he gave her sent fresh wetness to her pussy. “Never. You’re my life, Makenna. I will want you forever. I will love you forever.”

She pulled his face closer and kissed him, shoving her tongue into his mouth as desire spread through her body like wild fire. His cock was so huge now, rubbing her clit each time he moved. Makenna couldn’t wait any longer. She shifted a bit further, growled deep in her throat, and turned them over so she was on top.

Strong laughter filled the space between them, and he cupped her face. “I love it when you take charge like this. You’re so damn sexy.”

“I have to have you. Now.” She rose up enough to sheath his cock with her pussy, crying out as he released her face to grasp her hips instead.

“Then have me, love. All of me.”

He moved her up and down roughly, grunting and growling as he did. Each pass massaged her clit in exactly the right way, and when her orgasm came, it was so intense Makenna wasn’t sure she could keep breathing.

Before it ended, Stone moved her off him and rolled her onto her stomach. He settled himself between her legs and bent down, licking her asshole. “I’m going to fuck you in every hole. You want me, you’ll take me. Everywhere.”

“Oh, God!” She cried out in ecstasy when he slid two fingers into her puckered hole, gently stretching the walls. Nothing they’d done so far had been this raw and dirty, but she loved it. She wanted more. She wanted everything he had to give her.

When he gently slid his cock into her asshole, Makenna could do nothing but lie there while he fucked her. Stone slipped a hand underneath and massaged her clit, prolonging her climax. “Oh, Makenna! Fucking you is unlike anything in the world!”

The orgasm crested again when he licked the wound on her neck, and now her moans turned to whimpers as wave after wave of delicious pleasure washed over her. When he finally came, she was still lost in the headiness of being completely his. She’d totally given herself to him, and nothing anyone said or did could change that.

The hell with what awaited them back in the village. They’d simply stay here for the rest of their lives.

Payback’s a Bitch by Kacey Hammell

bitch

Excerpt:

Race car driver Lark Stevens agrees to help a close friend prove that paybacks can be a bitch. But what she doesn’t expect is to fall in lust with her mark. Or is he who she thinks he is?

Set on her mission, Lark assumes the mystery man who amps up the heat and pushes her heart into overdrive is her intended target. And once they connect, getting even is the last thing on her mind.

As the heat smolders and revs from zero to sixty in mere seconds, Lark realizes she’s on a crash course of emotion that no amount of braking will stop.

Warning: No holds barred sexual teasing, dances meant to titillate and push you over the edge, and M/F love scenes to get engines revving.

reviewfbknotty1

This story by the awesome Kacey Hammell is all about payback, and maybe how the best laid plans never go quite how we plan.

Our heroine is a race car driver who is helping her friend and manager get back at his friend and perpetrator of primary wrong, Aaron.

Lark is to meet Aaron at her friend Eli’s office to hit him with this payback. It’s the perfect plan. What could go wrong? Indeed.

This was an enjoyable story, and it flowed along nicely. As with all of Kacey’s books, it had well-rounded characters that I was invested in from the start. Granted, I saw the whole plan unraveling, and it was pretty funny. Lark is a wee bit too aggressive at times for me, but that’s all a matter of personal taste.

This is still a great book and fans of Ms Hammell’s are sure to absolutely love it!

The Christmas Letter by April Zyon

christmasletter

Will a Christmas letter be enough to restore his faith in love?

Dante had been serving his country faithfully as one of the elite SEALs when he got word of his baby sister’s death. To say he had been devastated would have been an understatement. He was taken out of commission, away from the only job he ever knew, to take care of the niece he only saw when he was on leave. He toyed with the idea of allowing them to put her with a foster family—for about two minutes.

Noelle Henry spat out form letters for children who wrote to Santa Claus each holiday season. When she read a letter written in crayon from a six-year-old named Molly Davidson she knew that she couldn’t simply send the child the standard letter, especially since she had known the child’s late mother. Instead, Noelle wrote a personalized letter for the little girl, something that would likely get her fired. She never anticipated what would develop between her and Molly’s new guardian, Dante

reviewfbknotty1

The Christmas Letter is the first book in a new series by April Zyon called Davidson Center. And despite the fact it’s a holiday short, it’s a full and brilliant story that has huge things going for it.

The story starts with loss, and our hero Dante has to come home from military deployment to take over the care of his niece. He does so without complaint and with a whole lot of love.

Noelle is in charge of answering the letters that children send to Santa. When she comes across Molly’s, she realizes she knows her. She decides to send her a hand written response.

After watching Dante jog, Noelle runs into him. Their chemistry is electric. But when Christmas comes around, Dante learns a lesson in what believing is all about.

This was such a wonderful story of loss, love, hot sex, and the meaning of family. Done so, so, right as April does so well! Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

White Mountain Christmas (White Mountain Shifters 6) by Sara Anderson

white-mountain

Blair and Cole are celebrating their first Christmas as parents of twins. After a very hard pregnancy, Blair is overjoyed that the babies are both fine and life has calmed down. Now, Blair is looking for a way to spread the happiness she feels. 

When she meets a mother and child, who were rescued by shifters from a violent cult, Blair knows she has found the way to share her joy, and resolves to give them a nice Christmas to make up for all the horrors they’ve endured. 

But, between building parade floats and baking Christmas treats, can Cole and Blair make time to keep their romance alive?

Be Warned: spanking, bondage, sex toys

reviewfbknotty1

Next up is another amazing Evernight author. (There seems to be a pattern going for me here…) Sara Anderson. To be fair, I’ve been a HUGE fan since her Sci-Fi series. (Yup, I’ll be reviewing them here too!) But I’m a massive fan of this shifter series.

In this holiday short, we revisit Cole and Blair. (Mmmm Cole.) Another point? These ladies got me into shifters as well, because I’d certainly love one of THESE shifters. But I digress… Blair decides that she’s going to spread the Christmas spirit to others, in particular, Beth. Beth is the abused, pregnant, mother of a toddler who was rescued from the same cult as Rebecca. (The Forgotten)

Of course, we get to see the smoking hot BDSM scenes between Cole and Blair. (so yummy). It’s a short holiday read, but so satisfying. And it seems like a wonderful set up for the next book.

Excerpt:

Cole turned and looked at Blair, and once again, it struck him how much he loved this woman. She had a baby in each arm and swayed as she sang along with “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.

Aiden and Alex’s eyes were drifting closed, and it wouldn’t be long before they both drifted off to sleep. Cole came up behind her and wrapped his arms around her to sway with the music. Her head fell back against his chest as they moved slowly in a dance around the living room.

This was what Cole always felt was a perfect evening. Holding his mate and his cubs together as they danced around the living room. They didn’t need to talk to feel the connection to one another, just sway to the old Christmas song.

Once Aiden and Alex were as limp as overcooked noodles, Cole guided Blair to the nursery and he helped to lay them down. They snuggled them down into their crib, making sure the boys cuddled. The twin bond was strong between them, and they slept better when they touched.

Pulling the door closed ‘til only a crack was open for a bit of light, Cole then led Blair to their bedroom next to the nursery. She loved the view of his ass in those tight jeans of his. Cole was the definition of sexy to her.

****

Blair’s body began to heat up as Cole gripped the bottom of her little black sweater and pulled it up and over her head. “Baby, I told you that outfit was so sexy on you, but I think it looks so much better on the floor.”

Blair felt the rush of cold air as her sweater hit the floor. She grinned up at him. “You look just as good with your clothes joining mine.”

Cole’s heated gaze moved slowly up and down her body that was only in a bra and panties, and then he glanced at her clothing on the floor. “Definitely better on the floor.”

Blair shook her head as Cole picked her up and carried her to the floor in front of the fire.

“Give me just a second,” he said as he stood her on her feet. He grabbed a soft blanket and laid it in front of the fireplace, then pulled Blair over. “Lie down.”

Blair dropped down onto the blanket and let Cole guide her to her back. Cole quickly undid his belt, slid his jeans down his legs, and kicked them off. His shirt soon followed, and he dropped to his knees.

Blair only had a moment to wonder what he was going to do.

Cover Me by Kacey Hammell

Wanting her son’s best friend shouldn’t feel so right…

Jay Savage is one of the most sought after models in the business who seems to have it all. He’s the face of romance novel covers from coast to coast, and has expanded his brand to an executive role. Despite the endless possibilities in his life, Jay doesn’t have the one woman he wants most. She is everything he needs, and everything he can’t have. Their age difference isn’t the only obstacle standing in the way of convincing her they were made for one another. Leanne is also his best friend’s mom. 

On Nita Lake to celebrate the marriage of her son, Leanne Hogan is faced with the most delicious temptation she’s ever encountered. Their smoldering heat burns down her defenses, and Leanne finds herself giving in to the only man who tempts her banked desires. They shouldn’t work. Can’t work. So why does it feel so right when she’s in his arms?

Be Warned: spanking, public exhibition

 

reviewfbknotty1

I am a big fan of Kacey’s books, and I really loved this May/December romance where it was the woman who was the older partner. Kacey rocked this one! I thought Jay was a great character because he was so atypical for how you would expect someone in his shoes to play.

Leanne has had a lousy relationship with her ex-husband, and her grown-up son sees this. His best friend does too, and he’s been in love with Leanne for years. Her son is well-aware of the fact. When they are all at Beau’s wedding, both Leanne and Jay are staying at the venue for the next week, so Jay has that time to convince Leanne of his feelings.

The usual older-woman concerns come up, but Jay does his best to show her his feelings, and it turns into one of those reads where you just want to grab the guy up for yourself. You will have to read for yourself to find out if there’s a HEA.

Excerpt:

“I’m sorry if I’ve gone too far, Leanne, but I’ve wanted you for years. As soon as I realized what desire and attraction were, you’ve been the woman I wanted.”

She bowed her head, shaking it, and covered her mouth with one palm.

“I know you don’t believe me, but it’s the truth. I’m not even sure mere words can express how important you are to me.”

“No. You’ve lost your mind. It’s ridiculous. I’m so much older than you are.” She moved to the side of the bed, her face stricken and her arms crossed in front of her as if protecting herself from him. “The wedding and all … we’re just caught up right now because we’re here alone. You’re my son’s best friend, for God’s sake. Jay, it’s okay. We’ll chalk this up to crazy loneliness.”

Her attempt at a smile did little to appease him. There was no way he’d let her diminish his feelings.

“What I’m telling you has nothing to do with timing or loneliness or your son. Only us. And over a decade of feelings on my part for me to wade through.” She drew in a deep breath and opened her mouth. “Hear me out, okay?” he interrupted. “And be honest with yourself. There’s nothing stopping us to see what might be. We’re adults who are attracted to each other. There’s something between us, Leanne. I’ve wanted you for years. I don’t think I’m wrong to believe there have been mutual feelings on your part the last few times we’ve seen one another. Please be honest with yourself and don’t trivialize our relationship by telling me otherwise.”

Their gazes locked—in combat, he supposed, neither willing to back down from the tension circling the room.

“Oh, Jay,” she whispered, then turned to peer out the small opening between the curtains of the balcony door.

He wouldn’t give up on what they could have together.

Jay moved in behind her, he inhaled her sweet-scented mix of vanilla and strawberry. His mind raced imagining her spreading soap or lotion all over herself. He swallowed hard, shoving the thoughts away. “You’re the most amazing woman in the world in my opinion. I want to show you every bit of beauty I see. I wish you saw yourself as I do.”

He lifted his hands, cupping her shoulders and massaging the stiffness there. She sighed and lowered her head, as if enjoying the attention.

“It would be so easy to fall in to your arms and forget everything else. But Jay…” Her voice was soft and low, but he heard the indecisiveness and the deep-rooted hunger underlying her words. “I don’t live life by throwing caution to the wind. And you could have any woman in the world. I’m just an old house wife who—”

He pulled her back in tight against his chest, not wanting to listen to her denials. Jay pressed his lips to her neck, kissing his way over her skin. She gasped, then relaxed in his arms, her breathing quick and rough.

“I don’t want to be with anyone else,” he whispered against her ear. “No one else exists right now. You and me. Here and now. Hungry for each other, desperate to be together. I feel the tension in your body.” He raked his teeth along her neckline, doing a mental high-five as her hands balled into fists against her belly. “Damn it, I sense your need, too. But I won’t push you. But if you tell me to go…” He wrapped his hands around hers. “I will. But don’t think I’ll give up. I’ll keep coming back hour after hour, day after day, to show you how much I want you.”

Jay waited, arms around her, his dick ready to burst and his heart thumping to capacity. He sent up a silent prayer she wouldn’t say no.

“You’re right.” Leanne let out a breathless sigh. “I don’t want there to be anyone else here. Just you and me. But what if—?”

“Let’s pretend for tonight that what if doesn’t exist.”

Explosive Desire (Love With A Price 4) by N.J. Young

explosive

Finding love is the last thing on Luke Price’s mind as he leads his construction crew to complete the new wing of Oakville Hospital. But he can’t deny his feelings when Dr. Harper Love walks into his life. Lacking the sociability of his younger siblings, Luke doesn’t think a woman like Harper would ever want an introvert like him. But he puts his skepticism on hold when he discovers that Harper has become the victim of a stalker. Above all else, Luke vows to protect the woman he cares about.

When Dr. Harper Love moves to Oakville, she doesn’t expect to find a network of new friends, a man who captures her heart, and certainly not a stalker who watches her every move. When she begins receiving menacing notes at the hospital where she works, it soon becomes clear that the threats are no prank. Harper finds herself turning to Luke Price, and his protective instincts go on high alert. Will his heart be able to stand losing Harper? Or can he figure out who the stalker is and keep the woman he loves safe?

reviewfbknotty1

Hard to believe we are on the 4th book with the Price family, this one being Luke’s. He’s the supervisor of a construction crew, and he comes upon the sexy lady doctor he’s had his eye on having an argument with his crew about his trucks blocking her car in. When he later falls, she gets him for a patient.

But Dr Harper Love is being stalked, and Luke finds this out when she drops one of her threatening letters. More threats start coming, and when Luke starts to get involved, the fireworks fly!

Of course, we get to see the others in the Price family involved, and the completely Domalicious sex scenes are off the charts. N.J. is always one of my go-to authors, no matter what series she’s writing. The suspense, along with the romance and smoking sex are a combo that wins every time.

The moment Sophia met him, she knew life would never be the same. She’s seen him in her dreams for years and knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that somehow, across space and time, they’re fated for one another. But when their lives collide, he can’t get away from her fast enough.

Gunslinger James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok has always lived by how fast he can draw his weapon. He understands things like statistics, odds, and where the sun sits in the sky. But the pull of one woman on his heart gives him more fear than a bullet with his name on it.

They have only one shot at forever. Danger is coming their way, and James is running out of time to make the right call or risk losing Sophia forever.

reviewfbknotty1

Shadowed is the fourth book in April Zyon’s Warriors Of Light series, and my how time does fly! This has been an utterly fantastic series and I will be very sad to see it end. The good news, is that I know April will come up with more incredible stories and series ideas to keep us all entertained.

Sophia Ann Duffy was abused by her own father until she was 14, then went to live in the foster system. She, like the other Vestal Virgins, has her own abilities, and one of hers, is that she’s dreamed all about the man who would be hers.

But, James Hickcock avoids Sophia like the plague for the first couple of weeks. But when he works through his big issue, sparks fly!

Loved the connection between these two. As always, it’s fast, and it’s deep. The length of the book doesn’t give us a whole lot of time to draw things out, but it’s still a great story. I’ll always vote for longer, but the concept just makes up for it all!

Five Otherworldly Orgasms

5knottyo

Excerpt:

Two weeks after returning to the Mountain, James saw her again. Sophia Ann Duffy.

Pausing in the corridor, he watched her walking and talking with her sister. They were such opposites. Vivian was a bold woman, not just with her red hair and take-charge attitude, but she had a presence about her that said she wouldn’t take crap from anyone.

When they’d found Vivian, she’d been on a story that had quickly led them to hunting down Vivian’s sister on the job. The monsters had targeted Sophia because she was one of the thirteen rarest women alive, a vestal virgin, destined to bond with a guardian.

There was something about the dark-haired beauty that called to him. Unfortunately, if he focused on her too long, he ended up with a headache. One the medics were stumped by, since there was absolutely no medical evidence to support it.

The doctors might be clueless, but the other guardians knew something. At least that was his guess, given the looks he’d been getting from Gaius, Hector, Jason, and Mercury. Even Alexander, who pretty much hated James’s guts, was giving him that same knowing stare. They knew something and they weren’t telling him, which was seriously pissing him off.

Sighing, he watched as Sophia disappeared around the corner of a corridor intersection, and his headache let up.

Giving his head a shake, he continued on his way to the base’s main hub. He couldn’t keep thinking about Sophia, no matter how often his mind went to her. She didn’t seem to want to see him, so it really didn’t matter if he wanted to talk to her. She avoided him all too well in a place he knew better than she ever could.

“James, about time,” Mercury said.

Acknowledging their leader, James then nodded to Helen, their tech guru, and took a chair near her. “So, what’s the news?”

“Eric updated me early this morning. He’s found our guy again and is tracking him now. He needs backup out there,” Mercury answered.

“So, you’re shipping me back out to Miami?”

“No, Alexander’s already departed to assist him. Gaius is having fits again, understandable of course, but still, we need to keep an eye on him. He wants to go out there, but we all know how that would end up.”

Yeah, Gaius on a rampage to get the man responsible for Emily, his soul mate, being hurt wouldn’t go well. Godzilla had nothing on Gaius when he got his back up about something and went looking to kill someone.

“So, I’m here why?” James asked. He didn’t get why he’d been summoned, especially since he’d been off training. Mercury didn’t interrupt training for any reason.

“You and I need to talk.” Mercury moved to the door and shot James an expectant look.

Groaning, James rolled his eyes and followed the man. They strode through the halls to Mercury’s office, where James took the chair he was pointed to. “What do we need to talk about?”

“About you getting your head out of your ass and seeing what’s right in front of you.”

“Huh?”

“It’s been two weeks since you got back, and while I agreed at the time with the others to keep my nose out of it, enough is enough.”

“Again, I’m going to have to go with ‘huh’?”

Mercury raised a brow. “You and Sophia. Deal with it, sooner rather than later.”

“There’s nothing to deal with, Merc. She’s a great girl and all, but she wants nothing to do with me. Given how my head practically explodes with pain any time I’m near her, it’s probably a good thing she’s avoiding me like she is.”

Mercury scraped a hand through his hair. “I can’t believe you have no clue,” he muttered. “Do you remember what I told you about the medallion when I brought you back?”

“Yeah, don’t let anyone shatter it, as it’s as effective as having my head removed. Which, in my case, is pretty much the same thing.” James was obviously missing a key point, though, because Mercury was giving him a look that called him an idiot nine ways of Sunday.

“There was more to it than that. It wasn’t that long ago, and even with the brain damage you suffered, you should remember it.”

Frowning, James thought back. The medallion would give him life as long as it wasn’t shattered or he didn’t lose his head. It would help to guide him to stay in the light, but it couldn’t override his own needs and wants. If he gave in to the darkness that surrounded them, then he’d become one of the evil ones.

Then it hit him. The medallion would direct him to the one woman in all the world that was his—his heart, his light, his soul mate. “Shit,” he breathed out. Sophia Duffy was his soul mate. It all made sense now. He could recall the way Jason would rub at his chest as if he were in pain when he met Vivian. Now that he was thinking about it he could feel the ache each time he had seen the disappointment in Sophia’s eyes when he’d first met her.

And he’d pretty much done everything in his power to drive her away because of the headaches. The headaches! He let out a groan and pressed a hand to his eyes. No other guardian had a medallion in their head. He was getting the headaches because the medallion was trying to draw him to her. What had he done? Just thinking of how he’d treated her made his head hurt and his soul scream in pain.

“There we go,” Mercury said. “I knew all you’d need was a nudge.”

“Fucking hell, Merc. Why didn’t someone point it out sooner? She hates my guts right now. I did everything I could to push her away, and I succeeded. She won’t get within thirty feet of me anymore.”

“Well, then, you have a hell of a lot of work to do. I’d watch out for Vivian, though. She’s a very protective older sister, and Jason’s been teaching her hand-to-hand combat tactics. You might beat her on the draw, but I figure she’ll take you down out of sheer determination and whatever women have that makes them stronger than we men could ever hope to be.”

Mercury got to his feet and came around the desk. “Now get out of my office and figure out how to win your woman back. Soon, too, or she might just be handed off to another guardian by whatever power lays within the medallion.”

“Can that happen?” James asked in sudden horror.

“Hell if I know, but it’s a power beyond anything I understand. It might just decide you’re not worthy of her and give her to someone that will actually treasure her for the gift she is. And that may very well mean you’re out of luck, permanently.”

“Shit,” James whispered. Popping up to his feet, he got out of there quickly. No way in hell am I losing my only hope at staying in the light to another guardian. The thought of Sophia being touched by another man made his stomach turn.

Stopping, he looked around. Now he had one major problem and a minor obstacle—getting Sophia to speak to him again so he could apologize and avoiding being gutted by her sister. He’d seen the looks Vivian had been shooting his way, and now he understood them.

Blurb:

Haley Joy has never recovered from her tragic divorce and the loss of her daughter. She lives a lonely, reclusive life with her dogs Ginger and Sammie. A chance meeting at a bar introduces her to Austin Mckenzie. He’s years younger than her, but they share a similar past and a love for dogs.

Austin also has a secret, he’s a Dom who’s currently looking for a woman to rebuild his life with. He and his best friend Med have shared women before and they hope to do the same again.

Their first date is magic, but then tragedy befalls Haley when a man breaks into her house. The break-in may be the beginning of the end for their budding relationship. It’s Med who sees the truth of their feelings and he plots out a plan to get them back together. Will he succeed so they can be with Haley for Christmas?

reviewfbknotty1

First, a big shout out to cover artist, Jay Aheer. She comes up with some absolutely amazing covers!

Two Doms at Christmas is a holiday read from the immensely talented Kat Barrett. I’ve been reading her books for quite a long while, and I’ve always enjoyed them. This book is no different.

Haley Joy is a writer who manages to get caught saying some pretty kinky things into her phone.To make things worse, she’s caught by Austin McKenzie. He sees she has no wedding ring on and decides to strike up a conversation with her. After they both figure out that they have similar things in common, they decide to spend more time together.

She eventually finds out that not only is Austin a Dom, but he shares with his best friend Med. But when an attacker breaks into his home and hurts Haley’s dog, the dog later has a problem they never saw coming.

An overreaction and misunderstandings could be just the thing to break them up. For good.

This was a wonderful book, with lots of lovely D/s sex. The Doms have different kinks, including pony play and paddling, which Haley acommidates equally. I will say I was really disappointed in Austin’s reaction to the episode with the dog. I wasn’t thrilled with how he behaved towards Haley, otherwise, I just loved it!

I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.

Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it’s something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.

Evil doesn’t exist.

Neither does ‘good.’

Vampires do, though.

I just happen to be one.

I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.

I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.

I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I’m in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.

Battles, I can handle.

The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?

I might not get out undead.

Author Bio
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth; then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.Raised in small town New Zealand, Anne had a truly special childhood, growing up in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. For now, she’s back at home in New Zealand and quite happy. But who knows when the travel bug will bite her again?
