on October 14th 2013
DARK AND DANGEROUS is a collection of novels by six different authors. I give the collection a 4 in total. Below are the individual reviews.
HARD MATED (Jennifer Ashley): This is a novella in Ashley ‘s Shifters Unbound Series. It is the story of Spike, a wildcat Shifter who finds out that he has a cub. The woman who brings him the news is a friend of the mother, Myka. As Shifters do, Spike immediately becomes attached to the cub and wants to do nothing but protect him. Myka and Spike have great chemistry. I enjoyed the story very much. My favorite of the collection. Rating 4.
THE MATING HUNT (Bonnie Vanak) This is the story of Adianna, a werewolf, who was traumatised as a child and is terrified of sex. Kyle has wanted Adrianna for a long time but has a secret that he believes will make them being together impossible. I really liked this story. I have never read this author or series before, but am interested in reading more. Rating 4.
EMBRACE THE DARK (Caris Roane): This is the story Abigail who finds out she is a blood rose, destined to service a vampire. She meets Gerrod who is obsessed with her. The plot of this one was interesting, but I never felt a connection with the characters. Rating 3.
ASSASSIN’S TOUCH (Laurie London): A woman, Neyla, discovers she has latent para-abilities and meets Rickety, an assassin determined to protect the Iron Portal into his world. I never got into this one. The story has a good plot, but the characters did not appeal to me. Rating 3.
SHADOW BOUND (Erin Kellison): This is the story of Adam and Talia. The book is really dark and not to my liking. That is just taste. It seemed really well created, but not what I look for in this type of book. Rating 3.5.
SEDUCE (Felicity Heaton): This is the third book in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series). I’ve never read this author before, but based in this book I picked up some other books on the series. It is a vampire story about Antoine, a vampire, who fears the Bloodlust coming over him as it has done with his brother. He meets Sara who becomes determined to have him. The sexual tension in this book is great. There are memorable characters especially Snow. I immediately had to read more. Rating 4.
