Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken

Leave a comment

Dragon Actually is the first book in the series Dragon Kin by G.A. Aiken. I absolutely love this series. The dragons are great and their mates are dangerously hilarious. I will say among all the characters in the books, Annwyl the Bloody is my favorite. Tell me who you’re favorites are once you get through all the books. It’s hard to read just one.

Book 1 in the Dragon Kin series

now including A Tale of Two Dragons

 

With a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody, men tend to either cower in fear at the sight of me, or salute. So it would be nice to find a man I can actually talk to, just the way I can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer. Then again, Fearghus is a dragon…

Find out for yourself why All Things Urban Fantasy calls the Dragon Kin series, “As bawdy, crass, and hilarious as anything I could have hoped for!” and read the prequel novella, “A Tale of Two Dragons,” to see where the insanity began!

Happy Reading!

Federal Protection Unit

Get Wolf Protector, Dangerous Protector and Unwanted Protector in this great bundle. Alphas with a protective streak a mile and the women who put up with them.
I had actually read the first two books a while ago and then she just came out with the third one in April. Of course, I had to reread the first two books so I could read the third book. I went ahead and bought the bundle so that I can read them all at once.

Wolf Protector

A woman with a secret…

The Federal Paranormal Unit is an elite squad of supernaturals dedicated to solving missing persons cases. Erica’s gift allows her a special connection with the crime, but it comes at a deep personal cost… Until now, she’s kept her gift a secret, even from the other members of the team. But this case will throw her together with Agent Trent Buchanan. He’s the object of her secret desires, but he’s also a cocky womanizer. She’d rather swim in shark-infested waters with a paper cut than admit she has feelings for him.
A man with one desire…

Wolf Shifter Trent wants Erica more than he’s ever wanted any woman. He’s spent years patiently waiting for her to admit that she wants him too. Working one-on-one in a race to find a serial killer, Trent’s patience and Erica’s resolve wear thin. When Trent discovers the truth about Erica, will he accept her for who she is? And can he protect her from the horrors that her gift brings?
A case that pushes them to the edge…

Erica will have to risk it all if she wants to stop the killer, and when she does, Trent may have to put his own life on the line to make sure his mate is protected…
Dangerous Protector

If you run from love, you’re asking for a chase…
James Brock lived the past ten years without the woman he loves. Using his job as head of the Federal Paranormal Unit to help others, he’s done a good job of ignoring his lack of a personal life until she returns. His salvation. His first love.
Cynthia Vega had a very good reason to leave the only man she loved after she’d accepted his marriage proposal. Now she’s back as his boss. And he’s not willing to ignore their chemistry or the past.
Brock is determined to claim his mate and prove that their passion is even hotter than before. He wants her and her explanation behind their separation. Except, some secrets won’t stay buried in the past. Brock will fight his demons to follow her lead, but Cynthia’s reluctance to explain their lost love may be the one key to their destruction…
Unwanted Protector

Jane Donovan has been living a lie. Every day for the past ten years, she’s run from reality and the temptation that Tony Ramirez represents. But this year, Jane’s getaway is filled with more than just relaxation; there’s a dead man on her kitchen floor. Suddenly, keeping Tony away is the last thing Jane can do.
Tony Ramirez has wanted Jane for ten years. While she may not be his mate, the attraction is undeniable. When he can’t shake the feeling he needs to check on her, he decides to crash her vacation to ensure her safety. When he gets to her cabin, Jane is gone and nobody knows where she could be.
Finding out who the dead man is may be the least of their troubles when a pint-sized, pink-haired little girl who needs help suddenly makes an appearance. Unfortunately for Jane, the trouble with a small lie is that it grows with time. The truth may come to light before she’s ready. Now they have a murder, a child, a mystery, and the unwavering attraction to deal with.
Reader Note: These books are a work of fiction. There’s hot, sweaty, naughty sex, adult language, lots of violence and blood. Heroines with a sassy attitude and growly Alpha males that will claim their mates at any cost. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you’re a fan of all things naughty, se!xual tension, action and humor, this is perfect for you. Enjoy!

New Worlds

Leave a comment

It’s been almost two weeks since my last book recommendation. The family had the Phoenix Comicon coming up and we were busy getting ready. It was four days of walking and seeing a lot of people in cosplay. Don’t forget the party for the adults! Great fun was had by all. And now onto the next book recommendation.

First World (A Walker Saga Book 1)

Obviously by the title this is the first book, and there are seven of them. It’s fun to watch the Abigail grow and meet new characters along the way. My favorite character is Josian and you will see why on first meeting.

Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.

In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t. Tears don’t change a damn thing.

Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To First World; a land of unimagined beauty.

Abigail and Lucy find themselves thrust from New York and into another world. Day one: traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected savior arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow – kiss him or punch him in the mouth – Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.

And what a family. Enter Josian, her father, larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cozy reunion, since her return to First World is the unknown catalyst, setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for all worlds.

Sassy Mates Series, Book 1: Scent of a Mate

Mission: Scent a Mate
Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack’s scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan’s scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha
When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan’s strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Mature reader warning: Adult content including but not limited to: Violence and raw sexual language and actions.

***INCLUDES: Bonus short (A Hero Scarred) from Milly writing as April Angel***

Melissa Haag,” Judgement of the Six” series

Book 1: Hope(less)

Our world is being judged and we are unaware.

In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks filling her mind, representing the people around her confirm it.

Clueless regarding the reason behind her sight and her place in the world, Gabby struggles to find an explanation. A chance encounter leads to her  closer to answers she’s struggled to find, and into a hidden society where fur is optional. An introduction sends her running back home without the answers she wants – and not quite alone.

Gabby tries to ignore Clay, the werewolf delusional enough to follow her home thinking he has a chance with her, while continuing to search for answers on her own. Her problems compound when other werewolves, ones with abnormal sparks, start stalking her. Instead of gaining answers, her list of questions are growing. When she finds the answers, her will never be the same.

**I absolutely loved this book. I really had a hard time putting it down. I realized it was 2:30 in the morning and had to force myself to sleep. Really good story, great characters, and I love the humor in it as well. Well written. I liked it so much I bought the second shortly after finishing this one.**

Book 2: (Mis)fortune

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one can protect her – unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part wants to keep her safe. The second book of “Judgement of the Six” series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

**Loved this one too! Definitely a hard series to put down. The characters are great. I especially love Jim, his mischievousness knows no bounds. I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the series. I can’t wait to find out who it’s going to be about and how everyone will tie in. Definitely a new favorite on my list.**

I have more recommendations on the way. I’ve been reading nonstop, however the problem with that is my recommendations are not completely up to date to what I’m reading. I will try to get the rest of the books in. Starting Thursday, because Wednesdays are my game days. Woot!!

Until next time!
