Description and review for each novella separate below:

DEVIL’S DUE

DESCRIPTION:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh returns to her sensual world of the Breedsas one stubborn Breed meets her match, and can no longer deny her mate—or the fierce desires of her own heart.

REVIEW:
This was my first taste of a Breed Novel but I had no trouble following the storyline. The danger from outside forces coupled with sometimes wondering if the good guys were really all that good, kept the tension going. As for romance? It was HOT! I can only imagine what a full-length novel would be like. This series was already on my TBR list, now they have moved up.

THE CURSE OF THE BLACK SWAN

DESCRIPTION:
New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Day introduces the League of the Black Swanand the dangerous game one woman plays when her family’s curse dooms her to kill the man she loves.

REVIEW:
This was a nice introduction to her new series. Ms. Day did a good job of introduction without getting bogged down and overshadowing the story. I really liked the romance. Tender, heartfelt and warm. It blended nicely with the action. I cannot wait for book 1 of this new series to come out.

SALVAGE ( A Tale of the Iron Seas)

DESCRIPTION:
New York Times bestselling author Meljean Brook delivers a new story in her steampunk world of the Iron Seasas a man who’s lost everything returns home to find that not only is his marriage in jeopardy, but he must now fight air pirates who intend to steal his one remaining treasure—his wife.

REVIEW:
This is the first time that I have read a Steampunk novel. I will admit that it isn’t my cup of tea. That is a personal preference and does not reflect upon the writer’s ability to bring the story to life. She has a smooth writing style that kept me reading and I found the romance sweet and touching with just the right amount of heat. If you’ve not tried this genre yet, this would be a good one to try.

ECSTASY UNDER THE MOON (Children of the Moon)

DESCRIPTION:
And Lucy Monroe, national bestselling author of the Children of the Moon novelsunleashes the feral passions of a werewolf on the body, mind, and soul of his prey, his lover, his lifemate.

REVIEW:
This was a short pleasing novella. I’ve also not read the Children of the Moon novels and this story made me add to my TBR list. A story of two shifter nations joining together again entwined with a sweet gentle romance was a very nice combination.

NAUTIER AND WILDER by Lora Leigh and Jaci Burton

NAUTIER AND WILDER by Lora Leigh and Jaci Burton
Release date: April 2, 2013
Rating: 4 Stars

NAUTIE SIREN
Description:
Lora Leigh takes into the life of Dawg’s sister Piper. Being the alpha males they are, Dawg and his cousins smother Piper in protectiveness. It doesn’t help that sparks flare between her and Dawg’s co-worker, Jedediah. He’s as alpha as the others. Feeling overwhelmed by testosterone, she sneaks off to New York hoping to show her designer fashions. Alas, as with all McKays, trouble finds her causing Jed to come to the rescue.
REVIEW:
What can I say, I’m a sucker for the Nauti Boys. I love that this alpha male doesn’t try to smother her independence but still has her back. Lots of suspense, action and of course HEAT! I was a bit put off by the level of overbearing males, but it put a nice counter-point to Jed’s behavior. Overall I liked it.

RIDING TO SUNSET
Description:
Jaci Burton give us an almost “passing of the torch” to the new generation of the Wild Riders. An undercover special ops team. It revolves around General Lee’s search for his missing sister and the needed protection of his niece, Elena. In comes Jed Templeton to secretly protect her. Of course they are instantly attracted to each other. What doesn’t help is that Elena has no idea she even has an uncle, nor that Jed is more than he seems.
REVIEW:
I love the camaraderie of the Wild Riders and the chemistry between the main characters. The action and romance were well placed and I loved the twist in the storyline. I’Ve always loved the Wild Riders series and this is a good addition.

Even if you’ve not read either series, these novellas will be a great introduction.
