 Sydney is an amazing woman. Strong, strong-willed, highly independent and damn good at what she does. She is a survivor. She has this amazing self-confidence not only in her work, her work ethic and just who she is. She’s worked hard to get where she’s at and she’s not gonna let anyone tell her what she can or cannot do. A woman after my own heart. She’s willing to put others above yourself and make sure justice is served. A damn fine woman, even if she is a bit hardheaded.Is there such thing as a dominant southern gentleman? If not well, Kade is the answer to that. Whenever he was on the page, it was like time stopped. Kade speaks with grace and manors. Delivering his message with the commanding dominance that shows the power and respect he has earned with his age. Kade is sexy, sophisticated it’s like his presence put you in a trance. Very easy to get lost into the dangerous man. I very much enjoyed reading Kade.I read this book on the recommendation of fellow Book Obsessed Chick and friend, Janet. I was in no way letdown. when I read this book it was like time stopped. I was amazed at how I got lost in the story. Kade and Sydney are fantastic, both together and apart. Strong personalities and amazing story line can’t me turning the pages. The dual setting of Philadelphia and New Orleans Intensifies the story and adds to the plot. Add in all the keeping move in action, steamy romance, stubborn woman, dominant vampire, hot shifter and you get a damn fine book. Kade’s Dark Emraces was free at the time I downloaded and I also purchased the audio book to go along. The narration by Ryan West gave these wonderful characters another voice, that I did another layer of depth to the story. The story flows wonderfully, you were easily able to distinguish the characters voices and the story is delivered with passion

An almost dream like adventure wrapped with paranormal mystery and lore.

Marilyn grew on me during the reading of Immortal Heat.  A well read young woman, but sheltered. A bit of a geek, however there is something fiery with in this beauty.  Marilyn smart, willing and brave.  When the history of myths and legends that she loves so much becomes a reality, Marilyn’s inner strength rises and pieces start to fit in place. From what should have been a trip to finish her studies quickly became an adventure in keeping her life. we see Marilyn make some amazing transformatios that not only change her from child to woman, she truly changes herself completely.

Draylon is a fierce warrior and protector. He’s straight  from myth and legend. One of a kind. The man has a body that is sexy as sin. Draylon sheer presence is enough to make you weak in the knees. His presence on the page make sure kind of feel like you’re in a dream state where every fantasy can come true.  Draylon made this story for me.

Ms. Lynne created a story that I truly got lost in. I had to read the book twice before I could sit down to write this review. The story was almost like a dream, not sure where reality and fantasy began or ended.  She created a world with all the paranormal creatures that I love. She gave us interesting characters that captured your heart and allowed you to get sucked into their story.  Heat and passion fill the page while getting lost in the amazing world Ms. Lynne has allowed the reader to play in.

Whatever your paranormal tastes are in the romance world, Immoral Heat will have something for you. I look forward to seeing what happens in the Guardians of Dacia series.

A complementary copy of this book was provided by the author/publisher for an honest review.
