Blurb:
When Kendra decides to attend the local high school football game, a mad scientist who plans to hold her for experimentation snatches her. She’s not sure what to think when a tall, dark, and handsome stranger comes to her rescue.

Imagine Galen’s surprise when he finds the attractive red head he’s sent to retrieve from Dr. Thornton’s newest lab is more than he bargained for. What are the odds of finally finding one’s much-anticipated mate naked in a lab?

Available at Extasy Books

Cara’s Review:
Galen is one of the Hidden Breeds books by Tianna Xander, each can be read as stand alone, but as with most other books, more depth can be gained and relationships understood better if all the books are read. This is definitely another hot one! How deliciously toe-curling yummy is the idea of a perfect mate – one you know the instant you lay eyes on them, that they are meant to be with you forever? Too bad Kendra Mortensen has to be kidnapped and injected by a mad scientist to find hers.

Dragged drugged out of the parking lot during a football game, teacher Kendra is injected by a formula that will allow her to change into a wolf. She is soon rescued from captivity by a team of werewolves and men led by Galen Tolbert. Galen immediately recognizes Kendra as his mate – and her retrieval has just gotten much more exciting!

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is, “You are not dreaming, Kendra!” To be fair though, most people would probably believe themselves to be having a full on psychotic break if they came to in a glass cage, debilitated with pain, and about to turn into a wolf. I also hope that more is revealed about why or how Dr. Thornton is picking his victims. After all, it appears that he has purposefully chosen Kendra for abduction and injection- he certainly has things planned out.

I would strongly recommend this book to fans of Ms. Xander, as well as readers who like shifters. Oh, and hot lovin’…cause that can definitely be found here. You should definitely look up the other books in this series, and give them a read too, they are all enjoyable!

intothedream
Blurb:
[Menage Amour: Erotic Sci-Fi Menage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, shape-shifters, HEA] Allison Summers is having the mother of all bad days. As a surgeon, Allie is a strong woman who has led a difficult life. She is fighting to make the best of her situation, but everything changes when she is struck by lightning and finds herself transported to another world. Arcadian Princes Tynan, Cael, and Ryder Dracor have been looking for the woman who will complete their souls. Born in a world with a shortage of females, they fear that day will never come. When a goddess suddenly appears, they are shocked, but know they want her as their mate. Allie wants to go home, but now that they’ve found her, they don’t want to let her go…When wills clash and legacies are unveiled, it seems as though Allie was destined to become part of this world. But as she struggles with her new life, can she find a way to truly be happy and embrace being an Arcadian? Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

Cara’s Review

Sure, a world where the female population is dwindling, and the remaining woman are forced into marriages has been done before. Even a woman bonding with brothers has been done before. But, trust me when I tell you: not like this. Ms. Roma is able to take a common theme in sci-fi, and create a unique story all her own. Here, the displaced surgeon, Allison Summers, finds herself mated to the Dracor Princes, brothers Tynan, Cael, and Ryder. But unlike other tales, they will work together to bring actual changes in the society- after all, introducing more females to the same stifling environment, where nothing has changed will lead to the same results- a stagnant society, with females secreted away.

This book is a truly enjoyable read, and I’m hoping that Raven will also be brought over to Arcadia…it is fun trying to figure out which set of triplets she might hook up with! I would strongly recommend this book to readers who like the whole sci-fi mating- open mind bonds and all. You will absolutely not be disappointed. Oh, and the heroes are about seven feet tall, and built…ahem…in proportion. Will definitely need a fan when you read the bonding scenes!

~Excerpt~

“Let’s go, Malock.” Jager raised his eyebrows. “Or did you change your mind?”

She stood and released a deep breath. Even with her trepidation, she refused to back out now. Melina waited for her. “No, I’m looking forward to seeing Airondelle for myself.”

Brook spun away and rushed to catch up with her comrades. If she revealed her plans, she’d be stopped before she could find her lover. She would have to hide Melina right under their noses to bring her home. She pushed her shoulders back. I can do this. I have to.

The all-terrain vehicles sat loaded with equipment for the mission in front of the swirling mass of the portal. Her father certainly wasn’t wasting any time getting a team back to Airondelle. Crewmembers already filled the first vehicle, so she hopped into the back of the second.

Jager passed around everyone’s mission directives then shoved in on her left. Thank goodness he was the last to load. With his bulk, he occupied both of the remaining seats.

Before she had time to read her personal orders, they proceeded into the portal. She passed through the spinning matter, her body pulled and stretched in every direction. Unknown forces pushed on her chest, making it difficult to breathe. She gripped the seat, hoping she wouldn’t get pulled out. But the awkwardness didn’t last long. The transporter room light years away, clean, fresh air poured into her lungs. The alien vegetation of the foreign planet lined the rough dirt road they traveled. She yearned to explore the flora and fauna on a more intimate level. And she would, after setting up camp.

She opened the folder with her mission directive inside. Instead of the stack of papers detailing what Planet Core expected of her, she found a single sheet.

Her father’s handwriting scrawled across the page. You can never know the truth.

Hard, cold steel pressed against her temple. A gun. Her breath caught. What the hell is going on? She grabbed her knapsack and launched out of the vehicle.

What is The Underground?
The Underground is a group of rebels who live underground. They are former Planet Core employees who left the corporation as they do not agree with their policies on many things. Their only way out is to join The Underground. Most of the members live under the city in an abandoned subway station. (The subway is no longer used anywhere, only the above ground glides now.) Children and one of their caretakers live in the safehouses, which are farther away from the city.

New Release ~ Sex Love Repeat ~ Alessandra Torre ~ Giveaway

Sex Love Repeat - Alessandra Torre - COVERTitle: Sex Love Repeat
Release Date: December 1st
Length: 55,000 words
Price: $2.99 initially, will then increase to $3.99

Blurb:

I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything, but that they are not alone in my heart.

They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.

So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don’t expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives.

I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.

She hates me.
I don’t even know she exists.
She loves them. I love them.
And they love me.

Everything else hangs in the balance.

Excerpt:

My men are so different, yet similar in so many ways.

Their eyes, a similar tint of blue, yet Paul’s smiles at me with carefree abandonment and Stewart’s pierces my heart with its dark intensity.

Their bodies. Paul’s naturally muscular, his arms developed from hours of surfboard paddling, his abs ripped from balancing on a board, his thighs and calves strong from jumping, balancing, and kicking through currents. Stewart’s body, attacked like everything else in his life, with fierce devotion, aggression worked out with miles on a treadmill, weight-lifting, sit-ups, pull-ups, and calisthenics.

Their love. Paul loves me with unconditional warmth, his affection public and obvious, his arms pulling me into his warmth, his mouth littering my body with frequent kisses. Stewart loves me with a tiger’s intensity, his need taking my breath away, his confidence in our relationship strong enough to not be bothered by the presence of another man. He stares into my soul as if he owns it, and shows his love with money, sex, and rare moments of time.

Tonight is one of those rare moments. I have his attention, his cell phone is away, and he is staring at me as if I contain everything needed to make his world whole. I step forward, towards his seated form, the dress hugging my form to perfection. He sits up in the chair, spreading his knees and patting his thigh, indicating where he wants me. I sit sideways on his thigh, my eyes held by his, his hand stealing up and running lightly along my bare back. “You are breathtaking.” His voice gruff, he leans forward and places a light kiss on my neck. “And you smell incredible.”

“Thank you. You clean up pretty well yourself.” And he does. In a suit that no doubt costs more than my dress, he looks every bit the successful executive that he is. Short, orderly hair. Clean-shaved chin. Those intense eyes staring out of a strong face. “Is the car here?”

“It’s downstairs. But it can wait.” He runs a hand up my knee, sliding the material of the cocktail dress up.

I wait, my breath becoming shallow, my concentration focused on the path of his fingers, as they travel higher, taking their time, the tickle of rough skin against soft flesh. He leans over, brushing a quick kiss over my lips and then moves lower, soft kisses making the path down the line of my jaw, whisper soft against my neck, and deepening in touch when they reach my collarbone. His hand caresses my thigh, the brush of his thumb moving higher up my thigh until it is just breaths from my sex. I groan, sliding my hips forward, but his hand stops me, gripping my thigh and holding me still. “Not yet. Let me enjoy you for a moment.”

There is the sound of approaching footsteps, and I open my eyes to see a suited man, our driver, round the corner and stop short when we come into view. His eyes drop respectfully and he speaks softly. “Mr. Brand, I’ll be downstairs with the car when you are ready.”

Stewart mutters something unintelligible, the man taking the cue and leaving, the firm pull of the door behind him leaving us alone. Stewart’s hands push apart my legs, moving the fabric of my dress aside and leaving me bare and open to his eyes. He looks down, examining the exposed skin, his mouth curving into a smile. “No panties?” His eyes flick up to mine.

“They’re in my purse. I figured they would be useless until we got to the event.”

“That,” he says softly, his fingers teasing the edge of my lips, circling the edge of my sex in slow, tantalizing brushes, each touch closer but not yet there, “is why I love you. You know me so well.”

His eyes stare at me, dark pools of lust and want. While Paul and I talk, incessantly, often, about anything and everything, important or not, Stewart and I fuck our way through this relationship, our time often too short for anything more than physical contact. Sex is how we connect, share our feelings, emotions, and love. I stare back into his eyes, my eyelids closing slightly when he slides one confident finger over the knot of my clit, that finger effortlessly sliding down and into me, the small invasion a tease of perfection. “Look at me,” he breathes. “I want to see your eyes.”

I reopen my eyes, my mouth parting as he cups my sex, slipping a second finger in with the first, both of them working together, stimulating me in their movement, his thumb staying firm on my clit, soft pressure that moves slightly with each stroke of his fingers. He watches my eyes, sees the moment that the fire of my need hits them, sees the crescendo and burn of my arousal, adjusting the pace and pressure of his fingers in accordance with my want. I feel the curl of pleasure, growing in my belly, our eyes caught in a web of want, pulled to each other, my eyes barely noticing the sexy pull of his mouth into a smile as my breathing increases and I thrust into his hand. His other hand steals around my waist, sliding up my chest and pulling on the fabric there, tugging my neckline down till a breast is exposed, his hand gripping and tugging on it just hard enough to make me gasp.
