BOOK DESCRIPTION:
In a stunning new series, Alexandra Ivy lures readers into the dark, seductive world of the Sentinels–humans outcast by their hidden abilities, treading the line between life and death, good and evil, pleasure and pain. . .

In The Heart Of Darkness

Sergeant Duncan O’Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there’s one clue: she’s missing her heart. It’s enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro–one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It’s a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures.

Lies The Kiss Of Death

Unlike the other “high-bloods” in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer’s final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie’s skills to the test, O’Conner’s career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally.

REVIEW:
Born in Blood is the first book in Alexandra Ivy’s exciting new paranormal romance series and was a great start to the series. I loved it! This book is full of action, danger, and steamy romance. Alexandra Ivy created an exciting and seductive new world with Sentinels, who are humans with special abilities. I loved the main characters, Duncan the sexy detective, and Callie, a gifted Sentinel. There were a lot of secondary characters that captured my attention as well. Now I’m hooked and this series will be on my must buy list. I can not wait to see what else she has in store for us in this series. I recommend this series for paranormal romance lovers.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won’t have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.

Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he’s helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons–but he’d be lying. It’s not his fault, though! He didn’t tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he’s ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs. . .

CORI’S REVIEW:
I love this series! The Dragon Kin series is a fun and sexy dragon shifter romance series. G.A. Aiken is one of my favorite authors because her books are always fun, entertaining and keep me laughing throughout the story. A Tale of Two Dragons is Addolgar the Cheerful and Braith of the Darkness story. It’s filled with action, danger, and smoking hot romance. It’s a novella and although I wish it were longer because I can never get enough of these books it felt like a completely romance story. I highly recommend this novella and this series for paranormal romance lovers looking for a hot romance with some laughs.

DONNA’S REVIEW:
Reading the story of Braith and Addolgar was fun, passionate and made me wish for more. G. A. Aiken once again portrayed a strong female and the male who earned her love through adventure and desire. This back story to my favorite dragons was a nice addition that reminded me of the fun and adventure of her previous books. The way the characters banter and carry on is true entertainment and I will be reading this one again. I only wish it were a full length novel as I just can’t get enough of them.
