FLAMED by Katie Douglas

This reverse harem paranormal romance will leave you hot!
Flamed by Katie Douglas is OUT NOW!

Flamed is one hugely fun, gentle and steamy read

I very much enjoyed this story of Alora and her hot dragon-shifter men, Brynn, Canavan, Sharpe and Argon. The author managed to convey distinct personalities for the male characters and make them very likeable. Alora was a strange but wonderful mix of politically savvy and yet quite naive and unworldly too. I adored her, she was far too sweet and loving to not like!

This is a very low angst read, perfect for when you want pure entertainment that is easy to read. Problems are resolved fairly easily but, as long as you read this knowing it isn’t a deep or complex book, there is still a lot of enjoyment to be found within it’s pages. 

The plot has plenty of twists and turns, and whilst the world building was fairly detailed and had been given plenty of thought, it did lack depth on occasions. Not enough to spoil my enjoyment of the story though. I really liked how Flamed set up the possibility of future books and will definitely be reading those too.


I’m happy to recommend this to fans of Reverse-Harem books and those who love a light, sci-fi romance.

BLURB:

A lost princess. A species on the brink of extinction. A legend that could save them all.

Alora
I was having the worst day ever. A terror attack hit the center of my father’s interplanetary empire. In the chaos, I got captured by space pirates. They said they were going to sell me.  Alone and scared, I hardly believed it when four huge dragon shifters tore the ship apart and rescued me. But it’s not over.

Brynn, Canavan, Sharpe and Argon are outlaws persecuted on their home world. They’re stacked, tattooed, and they each have a different-colored flame with a unique sensual power.  When I do something truly dangerous, Argon doesn’t hesitate to correct my behavior and the others quickly prove they’re more than willing to back him up, while I am left with crimson cheeks — top and bottom.

I need to return to Nidia and do my duty to the galaxy. But the four dragon shifters quickly draw me into games that set my pulse racing. And when a deeper conspiracy is revealed, I’m left questioning not only my priorities, but where my loyalties truly lie.


Set in the same universe as Her Daddy and Her Master, this ‘why choose’ sci-fi romance features all the steamy things you’ve come to expect from Katie Douglas. If you like strength in numbers, a spot of intrigue and unconventional storylines, this book is for you!

LOST IN YOU —- Cover Reveal

“A hot, sexy mix of angst, longing, suspense and drama you don’t want to miss!”

Carly Phillips, New York Times Bestselling Author

Lost in You, an all-new sexy instalment in The Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake, is coming August 6th and we have the fabulous new cover! 

Robert McClellan was forced to serve as a soldier in a war he didn’t understand. Liberated by McKay-Taggart, he struggles every day to reclaim the life he lost and do right by the men he calls his brothers, The Lost Boys. Only one thing is more important – Ariel Adisa. The gorgeous psychologist has plagued his dreams since the day they met. Even as their mission pushes him to his limits, he can’t stop thinking about taking his shot at finding a life beyond all this with her.


Ariel Adisa is a force to be reckoned with. Her performance in Toronto proved she’s more than just a brilliant mind, but Robert still acts as if she is a wilting flower who needs his protection. Joining him on the mission to Munich should be the perfect opportunity to test their skills and cement their relationship. She and Robert are an excellent match. But when a stunning secret from Robert’s past is revealed, their world is turned upside down and nothing will ever be the same again.


While they chase dark secrets across Europe, Robert and Ariel realize that the only thing worse than not knowing who you are could be discovering who you used to be…

Excerpt: 

There was a knock on her door. Ariel glanced to the clock. It was getting late. The pizza had likely arrived. She didn’t want pizza. She wanted to start the day again and not have any of this hanging over them. When she’d gotten on that plane, she’d been filled with anticipation, and all of it was gone now. She’d expected dinner to be a quiet affair with only her and Robert. Now she would have to referee between Owen and Dante. She needed to get the whole group together for a session to get at the underlying problem.

“I’ve got to go, Damon.”

“Be safe.”

She hung up her mobile and slipped it into her pocket before answering the door. She’d expected Rebecca or Owen, but it was Robert who stood in her doorway.

And he looked delicious. He’d changed out of his traveling clothes into a set of perfectly pressed black slacks, a snowy white dress shirt, and blue tie. It should have looked staid. It would have on most men, but on Robert it made her wonder what she would see when she peeled off all those clothes.

She had a damn degree in psychology and it didn’t mean anything when her hormones got involved.

“Hey, I know I acted like a massive asshole earlier today.” He had a grim look on his face that changed to charming when he brought his hand around from his back and showed her the perfect white rose he offered her. “Would you please let me make up for it?”

There were a thousand reasons to say no. She could do it gently. She could remind him that the first chance they’d had to prove they could manage a relationship and still work together they’d blown. She could point out that there was still the hope of a cure out there.

Or you could live in the moment, my love. You could stop being so in that head of yours and let yourself feel.

Sometimes she could still hear her father’s wise voice in her head. He’d done so much, taken so many chances to bring his family to a better place. 

“Ariel, please. I’m sorry I treated you like that. I took out my bad day on you and it wasn’t fair. I wanted our night together. I planned it all out, but I forgot that the only really important part of the night wasn’t the restaurant or the hotel. It was that we got to be together. Be with me for a while.”

She took the rose from his hand, all thoughts of why this was a bad idea flying out of her head. “Yes.”

But she wasn’t nearly as dressed as he was. “Give me a minute to change.”

He shook his head. “You look beautiful and we’re only going to the kitchen.”

“You dressed for the occasion.”

“I was also the asshole who challenged the authority of my commander in the field. Trust me, I like this far better than dropping to the floor and giving you a hundred like I…” He shook his head. “Not going there.”

She stepped in, putting a hand on his face. “It’s okay. Let the visual piece go and tell me what you felt.”

He pressed his cheek against her hand. “No therapist stuff tonight. I promise I’ll write it down later and talk to Kai about it, but I want you to stop thinking about me as a patient. This can’t work if you don’t. Please come to the kitchen with me. I managed to shove everyone else in the media room. They’re watching a football match. Well, Rebecca is reading on her e-reader and rolling her eyes when the guys yell at the screen, but the kitchen is on the opposite end of the floor. I promise it’s quiet there.”

She was still in the slacks and blouse she’d worn this afternoon. They were casual and comfortable. Certainly not something she would wear on a date. Robert was far better dressed for the occasion.

A vision of a private dinner where he was in a suit and she was wearing absolutely nothing floated across her brain. Sir wouldn’t want her in clothes. Sir would want to see nothing but her own skin so he could touch her everywhere, whenever he pleased. They could spend long hours like that. She wouldn’t worry about anything at all but pleasing her dominant partner.

“Come on.” He used that deep voice on her she’d heard him use at The Garden. Like her, Robert spent at least one night each weekend playing. She’d seen him paired up with some of her friends, but never had he taken one to a privacy room or up to his flat.

She hadn’t indulged herself in sex in a long time.

She followed him down the hallway and sure enough, heard someone yelling from the far end about a ref’s call. Poor Rebecca.

Robert led her away from it, his loafers making no sound over the carpet. This part of the club was comfortable, much more like a home than downstairs, and it made her wonder if Peter often had guests he put up here. She’d talked briefly to the man and he appeared to be very interested in teaching and training new D/s couples.

Were she and Robert going to be a D/s couple?

She stopped that line of thinking. This was nothing more than a pleasant way to spend an evening with a man she liked enormously.

With a man she might be falling in love with.

FALLEN (Dark Necessities Prequel) by Felicity Brandon

FIVE STARS – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Genre: Psychological, dark romance
Release: June 26, 2019
Cover Design: Eris Adderly.

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/45997110-fallen


This book made my feelings ricochet like a squash ball around a court

Wow, wow, wow. There were times when I almost liked Ethan, and there were times when I hated that man – especially by the end! How Ms Brandon aims to convince me that he deserves Lily is beyond my ability to imagine. I just know that he is one sexily gorgeous but very bad man.

There were a couple of occasions when I wanted to give Lily a good shake out of her naivety. However she IS only 18 and therefore I could understand these decisions. And so often it was a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea! I loved her inner strength, whilst the real life me would never agree with some of her choices, the fictional me loved every twist and turn arising from those decisions.

This book had me on the very edge of my seat for the vast majority of it, the tension is unparalleled and I don’t know how Ms Brandon managed to maintain it for so long. Honestly this is both gripping and twisted, a truly dark read that has the ability to horrify at the same time as it titillates – and in equal measures. 

Despite knowing the ultimate outcome for this couple, since both the prologue of book one AND the Dark Necessities Trilogy tell us, I’m still not sure if I want Lily to stick with Ethan or toss him aside. Ethan is an entire game of Snog, Marry and Kill all on his own. I absolutely adored some of the depraved games he forced Lily to play, probably as much if not more than she did. At the same time I hated his twisted thinking and illogical logic. So often his reasoning was UNREASONABLE and that is what makes him such a great anti-hero.

Oh Ms Brandon thank you so much for Ethan and Lily – I can not wait for the conclusion of their epic story!

Blurb:

She should have run while she had the chance…

Lily Simpson escapes, leaving her brooding captor to rot, but she’s still not free. Unable to resist the forbidden temptation Ethan Reilly offers, Lily is once again drawn back into his dangerous web of power and submission.

When they travel north, their desire blooms into something even darker—something Lily both detests and adores in equal measure. But when she learns of the fate of her best friend, everything changes. The question is, will there be a second opportunity to escape Ethan’s clutches?

Suspenseful, thought-provoking, and peppered with breathtaking scenes, this fast-paced psychological, dark romance will haunt you.

Book Review · Contemporary Romance

NO HEARTBREAKER REQUIRED by JoAnn Sky

3.75 Stars ⭐⭐⭐✨

Whilst this is a tale of never judging a book by it’s cover, this cover does do the story justice.

I very much enjoyed this tale of troubled Starr and confused Spencer. Both main characters were incredibly easy to like and empathise with, I could feel myself building an easy connection with them both. Even Starr blowing hot and cold felt understandable given recent events and a controlling ex.

There are quite a few sub-plots running through the book and, whilst they added a lovely depth and richness to the story, I do think they distracted from the romance element a little. I felt the chemistry between the couple, and we had plenty of confuddled feelings from the pair but I wasn’t 100% convinced I’d seen them fall in love. I needed just a touch more passion, I wanted to be swept away by emotion a little more. 

No Hearbreaker Required is still very much a full of feels book, in the main emotions and feelings were really well portrayed. JoAnn Sky is very much a talented writer who makes reading feel so easy. That might sound an odd thing to say but I’ve read enough books where it feels as though I’m having to put in effort to get through it. It is never an issue with this book, the story just flows really smoothly, carrying you along in its gentle embrace.

As mentioned before, there are several story strands running throughout the plot. I liked how it added colour to the palette, painting a whole picture for us rather than providing a sketched outline. It also allowed us to gain valuable insight into both Starr and Spencer’s personalities, to see them grow and connect as the story progressed.

Whilst there are some steamier scenes, not only is this fairly slow burn but it is also a fade-to-grey book. However that didn’t make it any less enjoyable of a read but is a plus for those who don’t enjoy graphic or copious sex scenes.

GOODREADS / AMAZON US / AMAZON UK

BLURB

When an avalanche crushes her world, Olympic hopeful Starr Taylor loses her job, her boyfriend, and worst of all, her confidence. She’s working on getting her life back together and moving forward, and it certainly won’t be with Spencer Kensington, the far-too-attractive playboy lawyer she’s forced to play nice with at their friends’ wedding. Unfortunately, Spencer’s trip to Reno gets extended unexpectedly, and Starr suddenly finds herself way too close for comfort with the man she’s quickly realizing is more than he appears.

Spencer is a tough, no-nonsense New York businessman with a no-commitment rule in the bedroom. But a few days of living with Starr, feeding goats and helping her save troubled teens, has him feeling something he can’t identify. In fact, the more Spencer gets to know the surprisingly vulnerable and tempting woman, the duller his superficial life in the city starts to seem. But everything he’s worked for is waiting for him, and as Spencer’s flight back home grows closer, he’s left wondering if the life he has is really the life he wants.

Blurb:

Alisa ‘s parents are gone and their English friends have graciously offered to take her in, in fulfillment of a promise made years ago. Their son, however, is less than thrilled at the idea of the young American orphan girl moving in and living off his family’s money.
Bram, formally known as Lord Belden, makes his feelings known from the start, and Alisa vows to marry the first man who offers for her hand just to be out from under his constant scrutiny.

One night changes everything, though. Bram decides that discipline is in order for the errant young spitfire, and things go a little too far. He will do the right thing and make her his wife, much to the delight of his parents. But can Alisa ever be happy with the man who seems to distrust her so much? Or are his feelings for her softening more than he cares to admit?
Publisher’s Note: This steamy historical romance contains elements of power exchange.

Excerpt:
“I don’t need to be seen by the doctor!” she hissed up at him.“Yes, you do,” he returned implacably. At the pace he was going, they were going to beat everyone, including the physician, to her room.Bram motioned for a hall boy to follow them in and left the door open behind him, too, for propriety’s sake, as he leaned down to arrange several pillows against the headboard before gently placing her there in an upright position.“Thank you, Lord Belden.”He almost grinned down at her, as much as he didn’t want to. “You’re welcome, Miss Thurgood.”“But I still don’t want to see the doctor. There’s no need for the fuss—or the expense. I don’t want to be a bother. I’m embarrassed enough as it is to have done this—and on my first night here, too. What must your parents think of me?”At that, Bram leaned down so that he knew she would be the only person who heard what he whispered, in a tone that brooked no disobedience. “You are going to be examined by the good doctor if I have to hold you down on the bed, myself, in order for him to do so.”

Excerpt:
He hummed and began to prepare a new drink for her, a drink, she noted, that included a very healthy helping of alcohol. A minute later, he slid the freshly prepared Cosmo toward her with a wink.“Thank you,” she said with a blush as she raised the glass to her lips and took a hasty sip. “It’s delicious.”“Not as delicious as I suspect you are, baby girl.”Her eyes widened at that. “Excuse me?” She coughed, trying to make sure she had heard the man right. “What did you say?”“I said,” he leaned closer to her, his eyes dropping to her lips, “that drink doesn’t look nearly as good as you do.”“Oh.”His smile broadened. “Oh.”“Thank you.” Ashley demurred when she wasn’t sure of what else to say. Her words only seemed to make the man’s eyes darken with lust.“You have manners,” he observed.She shrugged, looking down at the drink she was holding. “My daddy taught me to say thank you.” The words slipped from her mouth before she was even aware she was blurting them out. She went red at the admission and fiddled with her drink.“You learned that lesson real good, sweet girl.”

Excerpt:
“Hey, pretty lady, how was your morning?” he asked as he opened the door for her.She smiled up at him as she pushed her shoulder length hair out of her face. The New York wind was strong that day.They were lucky enough to find an empty table and quickly grabbed it. After ordering drinks, she took a deep breath. “You asked about my morning. It was very eventful. There was a disagreement about a book cover, tons of emails to answer, and one very disturbing letter.”He gave her a quizzical look as she took Caroline’s letter out of her bag and handed it to him, her hand brushing his slightly in the exchange. “Cody, I’m really beginning to understand why you’re so concerned about Caroline’s state of mind these days. Have you spoken to her counselor lately?””What’s this?” he asked as he took the envelope from her and looked at the handwriting. “Caroline wrote you a letter?””Read it. If that’s not a cry for help, I don’t know what is. That poor child is hurting, Cody. She’s determined to take care of her sister and her brothers and to care for you and run the household, without help from anyone. She’s sixteen years old. She needs to enjoy her teen years.””She doesn’t want me to see anyone, is that what she said?” he asked. “She is worried that you’re trying to take her mother’s place in our lives, is that it?””I’m afraid so. It’s understandable. Even though we are friends, she is afraid it will develop into more.””What do you suggest we do about it?” he asked.”I think the question needs to be, what are you going to do? In my opinion, and I don’t know much about children, let alone teenagers, you need to make an appointment to speak with her counselor. I know you said all four kids are in grief therapy. Caroline is the oldest; she seems to be having the hardest time dealing with everything.””Camille, I want you in my life. Now that I’ve found you again, I don’t want to lose you.”She took a deep breath before answering him. “Cody, I treasure our newfound friendship too. Right now, though, your four babies should be your top priority. I know having an adult to talk to is important, but focus on the kids. There will be time for us. I’m not going anywhere.””Promise?” he asked as the waitress returned to take their food order.When the girl had gone to put in the order for their lunch, Camille said quietly, “I promise.”His hand reached across the table to touch hers briefly. Funny, how neither of them thought of another promise made, years ago, at that same table.

A lost princess. A species on the brink of extinction. A legend that could save them all.

Alora
I was having the worst day ever. A terror attack hit the center of my father’s interplanetary empire. In the chaos, I got captured by space pirates. They said they were going to sell me. Alone and scared, I hardly believed it when four huge dragon shifters tore the ship apart and rescued me. But it’s not over.

Brynn, Canavan, Sharpe and Argon are outlaws persecuted on their home world. They’re stacked, tattooed, and they each have a different-colored flame with a unique sensual power. When I do something truly dangerous, Argon doesn’t hesitate to correct my behavior and the others quickly prove they’re more than willing to back him up, while I am left with crimson cheeks — top and bottom.

I need to return to Nidia and do my duty to the galaxy. But the four dragon shifters quickly draw me into games that set my pulse racing. And when a deeper conspiracy is revealed, I’m left questioning not only my priorities, but where my loyalties truly lie.
