5 Stars

With Bewitching Bedlam, Yasmine Galenorn has just given me everything thing I have been wanting in a fresh paranormal read.

Maudlin “Maddy” Gallowglass may have just become my favorite of Ms. Galenorn’s lead ladies. She’s hands down a total kick a** woman. Maddy has lived a long life, made history, loved and lost. Hundreds of years running, fighting and maybe even reeking a bit of havoc. Maddy is smart, strong and independent. A talented witch and an amazing friend. Maddy’s personality shines through the pages. She funny, snarky and powerful in more ways than one. Maddy is a complex character whom I very much connected with. Her charm and charisma make it very easy to like her, once I got to know Maddy, I was fascinated.

Aegis is a smoking hot vampire musician. He just enough alpha to make me purr. He what I call the perfect romantic vampire. He commanding but not overly aggressive. He respectfully and caring.

Excellent world building, a few plot twists and amazing characters make Bewitching Bedlam a fantastic read. Ms. Galenorn has outdone herself. First the world building- is truly excellent. An island that is 95% pretcom is the playing field for the Bewitching Bedlam series. I love the mixing of so many paranormal beings. You can almost feel the magic coming off the pages. The town itself is almost like a character. It has a personality that is all its own. Next, the plot twist- Ms. Galenorn kept me engaged and guessing through the entire story. Just when you think you got it, something will happen and change it all up. Characters- the cast of the story rock. Yes, all of them. Personality shines through, even with secondary characters. Making the story that much more enjoyable. Sandy is flamboyant, funny and bold. She is a riot and I absolutely loved her. Characters I really didn’t want to like found a way do so. Many characters have a long history with many ups and downs, creating a deep layer to this tale.

Bewitching Bedlam is just what I have been wanting/needing in a paranormal read. The first full length book of the series is like a breath of fresh air. We’ve got every kind of paranormal creature you can think of, humor and sass, a touch of suspense, multiple layers of depth and personality and some smoking hot romance. What more could I ask for? A quick moving story with a fully engaging plot. Bewitching Bedlam will satisfy all of your paranormal needs.

Treasured Find (Royal Pride #1)

Sometimes the greatest finds are unexpected.

After five centuries, Rafe Alexander knows what to expect from life–boredom broken by the occasional call from Shifter Affairs. No matter how mundane the job, he always accepts their plea for help. He knows what it’s like to lose loved ones to the shifter trafficking rings decimating their species.

But the task that takes him to West Virginia changes everything. A human is dead. A shifter child is missing. And the human female connected to both tragedies is hiding a secret.

He needs to discover the mystery surrounding her. But the felines he houses–lion, tiger and jaguar–want him to get close to her for another reason. Jasmine is special, both for how she affects him and for the treasure she’s been guarding.

And as danger mounts, he’s left balancing his desire for revenge and his need to protect. But the line between them isn’t always black and white, especially where his family is concerned.

Beautiful Mistake (Royal Pride #2)

A tortured man…A fearless woman…A mistake that’ll change their lives forever.

Three centuries ago, Devin Moore sacrificed his sanity to save his sister. Every day since is spent in a constant battle of wills with the three crazed cats–lion, tiger and jaguar–he houses. Keeping his shattered mind together has taken its toll, destroying any hope of having a family, but he can’t turn his back on innocents in need.

When information on his pride’s missing child reaches him, he rushes to bring her home. But the rescue mission goes horribly wrong. Lena, the human female who turns herself into bait in order to protect the little girl, is wounded and struggling to survive.

In a desperate act, he saves Lena. But it doesn’t erase his past mistakes. And for a broken man who’s finally offered hope, there’s only one thing left to do–prove his worth. The only problem? He’ll never be whole. Or sane. But maybe…just maybe…even the damned can find peace.

Favorite Obsession (Royal Pride #3)

Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.

One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.

Buried

Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late.

As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known.

Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path.

There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.

Shadowed

Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.

Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.

Buried

 

Some of those that care for, see to the Pack’s safety,  and wellbeing are the most lonely

Oliver, the forseer of the Bears. Gibson, the new Omega of the wolves. Mandy, a submissive wolf. Each longing for the other two, but afraid to act because of status and place within the pack. As changes are on the horizon for the shifters, a submissive wolf takes a chance a speaks up for herself. Causing a chain reaction of feelings, longing and lust. Buried is by far the most emotional of the Branded Pack series books. Passion, sensuality and pure animalistic lust.

 

Shadowed

 

Sinclair has intrigue me since we first met him. He is an alpha through and through.  He’s got a hard edge and soft heart. A hard past has made him the alpha he is today.  Mira is a take the world by the seat of the pants and go, kind of girl. She maybe a computer geek but the woman has some balls. She’s good at what she does and willing to take chances. Even putting herself in the line of fire. On the verge of the truth being exposed, Mira is taken by the SCU and Sinclair realizes the human means more to him then he wanted to admit.

Carrie Ann Ryan and Alexandra Ivy have created a unique and compelling shifter series that I can’t stop waiting. Buried and Shadowed is an action-packed, emotional and very sexy addition to the Branded Pack series. The writing duo of Ryan and Ivy continues intrigue and captivate. The writing is sound. The characters are colorful and charismatic. The plot keep you on your toes and the passion makes you feel. An awesome read.

Adult Excerpt

Breezy couldn’t believe her ears. Xan was saying everything she’d ever wanted to hear.

Could she believe him? What if he changed his mind? Wolves mated for life she reassured

herself, except in her parent’s case, she didn’t know of any other wolves who separated. She took

a deep breath and nodded.

“Say it,” he demanded.

“You’re my mate, Xan.”

He bent and kissed her, a sweet so unlike Xan kiss, she felt tears well again. “See, that

wasn’t so hard. Was it?” His thumbs brushed away her tears.

She smiled. “You really can be sweet.”

His hands reached for her ribs and began tickling. “Take it back. I am a big, bad ass

His teasing was a surprise, endearing him to her even more. “You’re that, too. So, when

does this debauchery begin?”

Her words had him going stone still. “We don’t need to do it now. I can wait a day or two.”

She threw her head back and laughed. “I’ve waited twenty-seven years. I think I’ve wanted

you since I knew what it meant to want a man. There’s no reason to wait, unless you’re not up

for the task.” She looked pointedly down at his lap. The large erection evident. Thankfully she

was a nurse and knew he would fit, even though he looked like he’d stuffed a third arm down his

“Woman, you truly are a bad girl. Damn, I’m a lucky bastard.” He lifted them both in one

motion from their seated position in the recliner, her arms went around his neck making him

realize she trusted him with her safety.

“Hmm, I think I might be the lucky one.” She traced his lips with her tongue, making him

A swat on her ass had her yelping. “That’s one. I owe you nineteen more.”

The sting his slap caused didn’t hurt, but she tensed the entire walk to his room, until he

kicked the door shut. “Xan, I’m not into spankings and stuff.” With her arms around his neck,

her legs locked around his waist, she explained about her childhood, and the beatings she’d

endured on a regular basis from her mother. By the time she finished, minutes had passed, and

Xan maneuvered them onto the big bed.

“Oh, honey, your mother needs to be strung up by her fingers and have her eyes plucked out

one by one. That’s just for starters. I’d like to…” She stopped his tirade with a kiss. His

vehemence on her behalf was endearing, but she didn’t want anyone else in their bedroom.

“I only told you so you’d understand where I’m at. I don’t know if I can be what you want.

If you want to stop before we start, I’ll understand.” It would kill her, especially if he chose, or

when he chose another. She’d have to leave the pack, but that would be better than knowing she

couldn’t be what he needed.

“Your mother has no place here with you and me. We will do only what feels good for the

both of us. However, I will spank your ass if you put yourself in danger.” He growled.

She swallowed but nodded. “I’ll do the same to you.”

He laughed. “Good luck with that.”

He twisted their bodies so she lay under him. “Now, where were we?” As his head bent and

his mouth covered hers, she forgot about everything except how much she wanted him.

One big hand skimmed up her side, slipping beneath her borrowed T-shirt. Her stomach

muscles jumped under his touch. Her nipples beaded, begging for his attention, which he quickly

gave as his nimble fingers found one hardened tip, pinching it between his thumb and forefinger.

She pressed her pussy up against the thigh he’d inserted between her legs, and clutched at

his back. “Don’t stop, oh god.”

He moved his thigh a little faster, pinched his fingers and kissed her at the same time. She

cried out, coming on a scream, but feeling empty.

Breezy sucked in a deep breath, needing to feel him inside her. Her hands worked at the

waistband of his sweats, but he stopped her. “Slow down.”

“Fuck that. I want you in me.”

He chuckled. “You’ll have me. I want you so damn much I hurt, but let’s make sure you’re

Xan lifted up and she stared at his face, amazed at the control he had. He straddled her legs,

keeping her from moving and frustration ate at her. “What the hell?”

The diabolical man laughed. “Ssh. I’ll take care of you.” He whisked the shirt over her head,

staring down at her breasts, then he bent and licked one then the other tip. “Fucking beautiful.”

He pushed her breasts together and buried his face between them. “One day I’ll slide my dick

between these, and fuck you here while you lick the tip till I come.”

She moaned. “You’re going to make me a nympho.”

“That’s my girl.” He continued to kiss and lick her in little nips, moving down her stomach.

Breezy watched his blond hair pause by her belly button, his tongue swirl around the little

indent as his hands tucked into the leggings. “Lift up.”

She helped him shove her borrowed pants down and watched as they sailed over the side of

the bed. His big hands lifted her legs, and spread her for his broad shoulders. Uncaring that the

lights in the room were on and he could see every single imperfect ounce of her body, Breezy

fell back on the bed, moaning at the first touch of his tongue on her.

He hummed, his hands holding her open while his lips, teeth and tongue brought her to

another climax within minutes. Breezy wasn’t sure if it was normal to come so quickly, but she

squeezed her eyes shut, clutched the bedding below her and bit her lip instead of screaming out

“I want to hear you. Feel you when you come.” Xan grabbed her hand and put it in his hair.

His eyes glowed up at her almost feral in their expression.

He used the flat of his tongue, becoming more aggressive. She stroked her fingers through

his hair, enjoying the silky texture, sure she couldn’t come again, when he pushed a finger inside

She closed her eyes, the feel of the thick digit working in and out new, yet an added

pleasure. Her thighs gripped him, and she pushed up against his face. Another finger entered her,

his speed increased, and then he was licking and sucking her clit with more vigor. He wiggled

his tongue, the raspy texture and rougher caress drove her mindlessly closer to a third climax.

She panted, and cried out his name, one hand fisting in his hair, the other digging into his

“Oh, yes. Xan, right there. Harder.”

Xan eased out from between her legs, licking his fingers. “You taste delicious. I think I will

make a meal of you morning, noon and night.”

“We will never get anything done, and we have jobs to do.” She reminded him.

“Fine, then breakfast and dinner.” He kissed her stomach, then stood and tossed his pants to

He surprised her when he crawled on top of her, holding his weight off of her with his

strength. “You realize once we do this you’re mine forever. Actually, you’re already mine, so

there is no going back. I’m going to mark you and hope like fuck you plan to mark me.”

Breezy looked up at him. “I’m going to mark you so big nobody will be able to miss it,

Xander Fucking Carmichael.”

He laughed. “Does that make you Breezy Fucking Carmichael?”

“I’ll get that tattooed on my ass for you.”

Synopsis

Agrestis Wolves’ Alpha, Jax Chandler, is on a mission to exact retribution after being captured and tortured by an enigmatic adversary. When the sophisticated publishing mogul rescues a beautiful wolf, he recognizes the woman he’d once believed to be his mate.

review

5 Stars 

Seductive and dangerous. 

Kym Grosso’s seventh installment of the Immortals of New Orleans series, Jax, is a page turning, seductive, adventure that leaves the reader heated up and breathless. 

Jax, the sexy New York Alpha, let’s his dominance known as soon as he appeared on the pages. His commanding presence, deadly nature, wisdom and experience make Jax my favorite of Kym’s Wolves.  

Katrina is a kick butt woman. Daughter and sister to Alpha’s, she has her own brand of strength and dominance. She special in the world of magic. A woman who is far more than her first appearance shows her to be. 

Ms. Grosso has once again enthralled her readers with her magical weaving of words. Seductive and romantic yet dark, dangerous and adventurous. Rich with details that transports the reader directly into the story alongside the characters. Plot twists and erotic passion with everything I love in a paranormal read. Jax is a highly recommended read.

Published August 27th 2015 by Carrie Ann Ryan, Alexandra Ivy

 

The first in a brand new dark and gritty paranormal series, Stolen and Forgiven begins a new journey with New York Times best-selling authors Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan.

Stolen
The first rule of being Alpha of the Canine Pack is to protect their secrets from the humans at all cost. One look at the dying human at his doorstep, and Holden Carter knows he will have to break it. The broken woman with no hope at survival is his mate. When he forces the change on her to save her life, he not only sets forth motions that could risk both their lives, but the lives of every shifter in the world.

Ariel Sands grew up in a post-Verona infection world and under the care of the very humans she thought had cured the disease. When they betray her in the worst ways imaginable, she finds herself not only mated to the Alpha of the very species she’s been taught to fear, but the focal point of a traitor and path to destruction for everyone’s way of life. It will take more than trust and a mating bond for Ariel and Holden to survive their enemies and burn of their own temptations.

Forgiven
Soren Slater is a Beta wolf who understands the duty to his Pack comes before his own needs. At a young age, he takes a position as a liaison between his Pack and the other species of shifters. He never expected his enticing flirtations with Cora Wilder, a Tiger Princess, would encourage her cat to consider him a potential mate. He’s forced to walk away, choosing a partner among the wolves to try and strengthen his Pack.

Cora has no intention of forgiving or forgetting Soren’s rejection. Not even when the Packs are forced to live together and she discovers Soren’s former mate has died. But then, she’s kidnapped by the SAU, and she has no choice but to work with Soren to escape. Together, they must put the past behind them if they’re to survive the human’s evil plot.

 

review

4.5 Stars

 

Stolen

 

Holden and Ariel’s story sets the tone for the series while learn the ways of the pack. Dark and gritting, Holden’s choice sets a unexpected chain of event.  Giving a nice twist for shifters. Hot, hard and in your face the Branded Pack is nothing to mess with.

 

Forgiven

 

Cora and Soren story is dangerous, sassy and sexy.  Past lovers find themselves in each others path when the humans force the wolves and tigers into one compound.  Sorens mistake of the past has him chasing after anything Cora will give him. Lust takes over and the humans butt in, sending a love struck wolf on on the chase for his mate.
The Branded Pack series has quickly caught my attention.  From concept of the series to the plots of the individual stories are dark, dangerous and hands down sexy.  Living within the rules while breaking the rules. Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan’s talent separately has had me reading them for years. Together they are phenomenal. From character development to world building and plotting, they’ve got it going on.

Aiden Snow makes Stolen and Forgiven come alive. His voice flawlessly takes this story to another level.

Agrestis Wolves’ Alpha, Jax Chandler, is on a mission to exact retribution after being captured and tortured by an enigmatic adversary. When the sophisticated publishing mogul rescues a beautiful wolf, he recognizes the woman he’d once believed to be his mate. Captivated, he sets out to discover her secrets and teaches her to embrace submission.

With Alpha blood running through her veins, Katrina Livingston’s shifter magic has been systematically stolen over time. On the run from demonic forces, she turns to the striking New York Alpha, the one she’s both hurt and protected. As she indulges in his erotic world, she struggles to resist the instinct to mate with Jax, a bond she believes will kill him.

From New York to New Orleans, Jax and Katrina embark on a dark and sensual adventure, discovering sorcery that could eradicate his entire pack. With their lives in danger, they search for clues to release her from the ominous prophesy. Will they survive the predator that comes ever closer to destroying their lives? And will Jax acknowledge the bond to a woman he never imagined he could trust to be his mate?

Immortals of New Orleans Series, Book 6

Published September 30th 2014

 

An erotic paranormal romance…
Dimitri LeBlanc, sexy and charismatic beta of Acadian Wolves, survives a brutal attack after his wolf succumbs to a dark force, threatening his very existence. Waking up, tied to a bed, his amusement transforms into lust as a beautiful stranger heals his beast. Intrigued by his mysterious savior, the tables quickly turn, when in the heat of a dark desert night, he rescues her from a barbaric Alpha. Dimitri is inexplicably drawn to the alluring woman, and the discovery that she’s his mate rouses his hunger to claim her as his own.

Gillian Michel, a New York City photographer, conceals a secret hybrid past and mystical abilities. An entire lifetime, she’s deliberately avoided wolves, but a seductive encounter with an irresistible beta leaves her craving his touch, his lips on hers. Passion ignites her desire, leaving her yearning to submit to the powerful wolf who tests her sexual limits.

Deep in the heart of New Orleans, Dimitri and Gillian seek a cure to the parasite maligning his mighty beast. Still on the run from a malevolent force, they lure their enemy into the bayou. Will Gillian sacrifice her gifts to save the man she loves, destroying her own immortality? And will Dimitri eradicate the evil that has invaded his soul while protecting his mate from an adversary who threatens to kill them both?

Warning: This book contains several erotic love scenes, including m/f/m menage, and is intended for adult readers only.

5 Stars

The Beta is hotter than the Alpha!

It’s very hard not to smile when Dimitri’s presence is on the page. The wolf is sexy as sin, dominating, charismatic and witty.  He has the strength of an alpha and a laid back quality making him the perfect beta.  However finding himself in a predicament that the solution is no better than the problem itself, Dimitri finds even the strong answer to the call of their beast.

Smart, fierce and cunning Gillian is unique among the shifters. So unique it has kept her running from the wolves.  Gillian is not the woman you want to be messing with.  Her very nature gives her strength and abilities to hold her own. Her uniqueness is also a plague making her gifts sought out.  A fighter and a giver,

Dimitri is a fast paced story that perfectly captures the essence of New Orleans.  The mixing of wolves, witches and vampires gives a fast paced tale of deception, suspense, witty humor and southern charm.  Kim Grosso has this majestic, sensuous and alluring ability to make a reader want to stay lost in her world.  Her characters have unique personalities, charm and charisma.  She makes you want to get to know them, to care about them and even think a naughty thought or two. Add in Ryan West’s narration, Dimitri is almost too hot to handle.   Not to mention, this book contains one of the BEST m/f/m menage scenes I have ever read.  You want to get lost?  Read Dimitri!

Audio Review: A Taste For A Mate by Carrie Ann Ryan

tasteA TASTE FOR A MATE

CARRIE ANN RYAN

REDWOOD PACK SERIES, BOOK 2

Audiobook
Published September 2014 (first published January 30th 2012)

Narrator: Gregory Salinas

 

Jasper Jamenson’s only responsibility to being the Beta of the Redwood Pack, second son of the Alpha, is to protect the Pack from themselves and the human world. After a century of selfless service, his brother’s new found mating forced him into taking a good look into his life. He isn’t sure he wants a mate, but fate may have other ideas.

Willow Delton is a skinny, bakery owner – the type most woman love to hate. Being without family, she finds herself alone to the Greek god with green eyes who saunters into her bakery every morning. Her desire to follow him, to be with him, overrides every rational sense she possessed.

Jasper and Willow are drawn together, despite every nuisance that works against them. But evil beyond even Jasper’s supernatural compensation will make war against him, by going after the only thing in his eternal life he desires – Willow. Is Willow’s heart enough to overcome Jasper’s soul to save her life? A fight he cannot win, but to save her life – he must.

Diving deeper into the Redwood Pack!

 

Jasper, Beta of the Redwood Pack, is everything I love in a wolf. Strong, dominant, protective and fierce. His life changed the day he walked into a bakery and smelled that cinnamony sent. Just when he and his wolf have their mate, hell breaks in on Jaspers life.  

 

Willow is a survivor. Orphaned, she has only had herself to rely on. She made a goal and built her dream. Willow is strong, a bit timid but feisty when needed and courageous. For a woman whose life literally got a slapped into a living urban legend I would say she is doing pretty damn good.

 

Carrie Ann Ryan takes it up a notch with A Taste For A Mate, book two of the Redwood Pack Series.  Willow and Jasper will tug at your heart as they steam up the pages trying to find how their pieces fit together. Emotional and naughty. Ms. Ryan really opens up the world of the Redwoods. Getting deep inside the pack, learning the ways of her wolves. Personalities emerge from the background, setting the stage not only for this story but the entire series.  

Gregory Sanlinas voice is the piece that completes the puzzle bringing the Redwood Pack alive in the readers mind.
