ENTHRALLED ANTHOLOGY by Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Meljean Brook and Lucy Monroe

ENTHRALLED ANTHOLOGY by Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Meljean Brook and Lucy Monroe
PUBLICATION DATE: July 2, 2013
REVIEWED BY: Reading In Pajamas/ Donna
RATED: 4 Stars

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.

PRINCE OF SHADOWS By Nancy Gideon

PRINCE OF SHADOWS By Nancy Gideon
Publication Date: May 27, 2013
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 4.5 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
The fourth original eBook in the steamy Shadows paranormal romance series features a woman forced to choose a mate, and a Shifter prince who may need to give up everything to win her.
Held hostage until she chooses a mate, Kendra Terriot must play a careful courtship game when choosing among the dangerous Shifter heirs. As a prince in the House of Terriot, Cale knows he can be the leader his clan needs with Kendra at his side, but first he must learn to become the kind of man she desires. In a treacherous race for the crown, where weakness means death, the only way to win her trust could mean surrendering his throne. But the only way to win her heart could mean letting her go…

REVIEW:
Prince of Shadows is a sexy shifter paranormal romance that had me captivated! I loved this story! This book is fourth book in the Moonlight Series. I was able to read Prince of Shadows without reading the books that came before it in the series, and understand the book. So this book can be read as a stand alone. I do plan on reading the other books though since I really enjoyed this one. Prince of Shadows has a lot of conflict, action, danger, intrigue, and plenty of steamy romance. I really loved the characters! Cale has loved Kendra since they were children, but left her in order to protect her. Now that Kendra is grown up and has to chose a mate, Cale sets out to win her heart while also having to deal with all the danger, and treachery around them. Kendra is naive and innocent, but she’s also brave and selfless. Cale is ruthless, but also has depth and feelings he hides from everyone. Nancy Gideon really transports the reader into the Moonlight series world. Prince of Shadows has a unique and intriguing plot that held my interest and kept me flipping the pages with anticipation until the the last page. I loved it and I plan on devouring the rest of the Moonlight Series as soon as possible. I highly recommend Prince of Shadows for paranormal romance lovers!
