Description:

His powers - Inhuman...

His passion - Beyond immortal...


All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments... and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love...
Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive -- and unimaginably powerful...

Review of His Darkest Hunger

6547185
Amazon               B&N
His Darkest Hunger (Jaguar Warrior, #1)
by Juliana Stone
4 of 5 Stars

Description:
Jaxon Castille: jaguar shifter, warrior, assassin. He has long hungered for the chance to make his former lover, Libby Jamieson, pay for her deadly betrayal. After three long years he’s finally found her. The hunt is over…
But the Libby that he finds is not what he expected. She has no memory of their tumultuous affair; of her treachery; of anything beyond her own name. A shadowy and deadly clan has marked them both for death, and in an instant the game changes: the hunter has become the hunted.
On the run, with the ghosts of their past between them and a dark, desperate hunger quickly reclaiming their bodies and souls, Libby and Jaxon must discover the truth behind the dark forces working against them. Together, they must grab hold of a destiny that has the power to either heal them or destroy them.
But the truth is far more shattering than anyone could imagine...


 Review:

Writing this review was difficult. Not because the book was bad – it was fantastic!
Jaguar shifter and tactical warrior, Jaxon, is on the hunt. He has a clean shot – with a tug on the trigger he can eliminate his target. That is, until a cute waitress unknowingly steps in the way. Jaxon is stunned when he comes face to face with the woman – she’s his ex. The woman who dropped off the face of the planet without a word. The woman who broke his heart. The woman he believes to be responsible for the death of a dear friend.
Libby’s memory has been whipped clean. She can’t recall anything that happened past 2 months ago. She doesn’t understand why the brooding, sexy man who captures her is treating her so poorly. What did she ever do to him? As the book evolves the two have a serious love (lust) hate relationship. Libby desperately wants to remember, but unlocking her memories comes with a price. There were times when I wondered if they could work through their troubles. The chemistry between them is sizzling and their back stories are heart wrenching. This book was an adventure.
The side characters left me wanting more and I’m looking forward to reading their stories. The world building was lovely and the ending is a teaser.  If you are a PNR fan, this book needs to be on your list.

Description:


It has been seven years since Analette Dyson stopped practicing magic and headed to New York, where she created a new life, complete with a fabulous job, an apartment in Central Park West, and a sexy werewolf fiancé. She never planned on returning to her small home town in Maine, but when she learns her grandmother is ill, she decides to pop over for a visit and what better time than Christmas? Excited for her fiancé to meet her family, they head up a day early.

Worst idea ever!

After doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Analette returns to their hotel to find her fiancé in bed with another woman. Cursing the universe for her never ending bad luck with men and dreading telling her family about her cheating fiancé, she heads to the bar to self medicate.

Not one to celebrate the holidays, vampire and assassin, Cole McRae, has followed a lead to a rustic town in witch territory. But after a few days of research and waiting for his target to show, he begins to suspect he has wasted his time. That is, until he meets a curvaceous blonde with bewitching green eyes at the local bar. One night with the enchanting Analette could make this useless trip well worth his time.

Their passion is undeniable and unbeknownst to them, their fates are intertwined. Magic and romance will strike on Christmas, changing their lives forever.

I Smell Sheep Reviews Caressed by Night

I Smell Sheep has given Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness, #2) 
5 Guilt Ridden Beastly Sheep. 

"This is the second book in the series, as with the first I loved this one just the same. Greene really knows how to deliver a great story. It was gripping, romantic and heartfelt. You felt the instant love between Dimitri and Kerstyn and lastly your heart goes out to the vampires and what they endured in their pasts. The guilt of their actions and worse, their emotional turmoil of who they really were, they thought of themselves as beasts. But were they really? Or just a product of the situations they were put in.
I highly recommend this series, and I am hoping to see a third installment.

Drink of Me
by Jacquelyn Frank

In a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma..."Drink Of Me", she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all. But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end...

P.S. I LOVED this book!

Review of The Present

Amazon         Barnes & Noble
The Present 
by Johanna Lindsey (A Malory Novel)
3.5 of 5 Stars

Description:

As the entire Malory family gathers at Haverston to celebrate the season, a mysterious present arrives anonymously. The gift is an old journal -- a tender and tempestuous account of the love affair between the second Marquis, Christopher Malory, and a dark gypsy beauty named Anastasia, who seeks a love match with a non-gypsy in order to save herself from a prearranged marriage to a brute. Though the dashing English lord Anastasia sets her sight upon burns for the exquisite, exotic miss, Christopher could never consent to wed such a lowborn lady. But miracles have been known to happen in this season of peace and giving and love, as two extraordinary people separated by circumstance of birth begin a passionate dance of will and wiles. And in the miraculous blossoming of a glorious romance at a long ago Christmastime, there are wise and well-learned lessons that will enrich the hearts of the Malory descendants -- and, indeed, of everyone who has ever dreamed.

Review:
I must tell you all that if you are not familiar with the Malory family, you may be a little lost since some parts of plot tie into previous books. That being said, The Present is a warm holiday read and I highly recommend the Malory books to anyone who love historical settings, dashing lords, feisty ladies, and wonderful romance.
