Review: This is book two in the Dragons of Seattle series and they need to be read in order. It is also an offset of another series that explains what is going on, who some of the characters are and the fact that the Dragon King is from one of the Banded Brother Series. It also helps to give you an insight into their world. I have got to say this Amber gives you one hell of an awesome read. I loved this book a lot more then the first one. It was a blast to read and cannot wait to get my hands on the next story.

Liang and 4 of his friends were put in stone over two thousand years ago by a crazy emperor. Now free they are coming together slowly. Although he is captured again by another crazy dragon, he finds his mate. His mate is a sea dragon and is so damn cute that he could get away with anything. However to free them both, he has to leave his mate behind to bring back help. His mate cannot change to his human form for a special reason, and he feels bad that he has to leave him behind.

Proteus is a very little sea dragon and he has a secret that he is afraid to show in case something bad happens. He is carrying the eggs of a dear friend that had been mated to the crazy dragon that had captured him. Now the dangers are coming out of the woodwork and it is up to Aden to keep them all safe. Aden is the dragon king after all.

This story is a blast to read and I am amazed with it. The characters will draw you in and have you falling in love. I love the way they support, protect, and love one another. This story gave me everything I could want in a story. Sexy men, feisty mates, tender love, surprises, twist and turns, excitement, hot sex and lots of danger. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

I would recommend reading it. You will love this story just as much as I do.

Blurb: Cole Jayden is a Templar, but he’s never killed a dragon. He feels guilty whenever a new prisoner is brought in, especially this latest one, a man so handsome that it makes him shake. When he’s charged to watch over this man, who looks so damned good when he stares at Cole, Cole is finding himself having some very serious thoughts about the life he’s been forced to live.

Craig Hacket is a dragon warrior, though he doesn’t feel much like a warrior when he’s captured and put into chains. He hates all Templars, but this new one who watches him in the night, who reads to him and sneaks him food, is especially interesting. He senses something between them, but it’s not until he convinces Cole to open the door, to come to him and let Craig show him all kinds of pleasure, that Craig knows the truth.

This Templar is his mate.

Review: This is part of a series and they should be read in order. Each story focuses on a new romantic couple and gives you an insight into their world. I loved this book almost as much as I love the others. It is a fascinating story that involves dragons, wolves and humans. Marcy has a wonderful gift at giving you a story that draws you in and keeps you there. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

Craig had been caught by the Templars and he wasn’t too sure what would have happened. Thank fully he met his mate there. The problem was his mate was a Templar, even though he never should have been. He does not have an evil bone in his body, which most Templars do. He is sweet, kind, gentle and very caring. His brother had set him up and wanted to teach him a lesson. So it was a good thing that Cole had a big dragon for a mate.

It is a very good story but it is missing a bit more to it. It seemed that it was rushed through. They meet, protect each other, save each other, than are mated. I would have liked a bit more to it. A little bit more conflict, warm and loving. It did catch my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end.

I would recommend reading this especially if you love two sexy men, shifters, excitement, surprise and dangerous situations.

Review: This is book three in the series and they should be read in order. There is something about these stories that always leaves me with more questions than answers. There needs to be more to these stories than what there is. It is a very good story but for me it is just missing more. I think that it is to easy for them to change a hunter but in this story it does take a bit of work but it was to fast and easy for me.

Nathan is the Alpha Heir. His brother is the alpha of his pack. He smells his mate and wants him, but when they get together, they realize that they are still missing something. There is a third out there that is theirs. Sebastian is fine with where he stands and is glad that Nathan is his, but he misses the third that they don’t know yet. When the hunters catch them, they find their third is one of them. Now all they have to do is to show their mate that not all wolves are evil. It is up to Ryan to save them all.

This is a really good story and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I want to hear more about these gorgeous men. I would recommend reading this especially if you love the idea of not two but three sexy men together, excitement, suspense, danger, and surprises. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

When Don catches a strange wolf sniffing around his town, it’s his job to investigate. To his relief, Ricky isn’t a threat, only an abused wolf who likes to tumble in his sheets.

Review: Ricky, an abused Omega wolf who also a vegetarian, is sent to talk Derrick, the son of his Alpha, into coming back to the pack. He gets caught by sexy Donnie Mills.

What he doesn’t expect is for his life to be turned upside down and to be claimed by the Beta wolf of the New Haven wolf pack. Loved how Don eliminated the threat to Ricky by his evil mate Clive. Hot sex between Ricky and Don.

Good read.

Blurb: Nathaniel’s been keeping a secret—even the most improbable soulmates can be drawn together.

Nathaniel, youngest of the brothers, has been keeping a secret. He knows the identity of his soulmate, but he hasn’t told anyone—because it’s not just impossible, it’s improbable. No one has more than one soulmate in a lifetime, but his new mark has drawn him to Abram—a widower who had, and lost, his mate long ago. It cannot happen, and yet it has…and Nathaniel’s falling in love, fast.

Abram is charmed by the adorable amber-eyed man, but not fooled. Falling for Nathaniel would be a one-way ticket to Heartbreak Hotel. Abram’s twenty-five years older, and he’s had his time with his soulmate. He knows there are no second chances, but every time Nathaniel enters his life, he wins another piece of Abram’s heart. Even if Abram knows better, he’s beginning to wonder if dreams can come true.

Or if miracles might just have been real all along.

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts
Gorgeous Nathaniel is shocked when a soulmark appears on his arm. His brother Cade sees the mark and pesters him about who it is. Nathaniel refuses to say anything at least until he actually meets his to find out who he is.

Sexy Abram is a widower who is very much attracted to Nathaniel. But is confused and shocked when Nathaniel lets him know he thinks they are soulmates.

Well written story with a lot of drama between Abram and Nathaniel. Especially with Abram trying to come to terms with what’s happening between them. Hot sex scenes as well as secretive meetings between Abram and Nathaniel make for a great read.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts
This is book five in this series and they need to be read in order.

For me, it gives me not only an insight into their world but into their lives. There is something about this story that made it feel like there was something missing. I loved the book but I needed more than the ending. It made me want to read the next story to hear more about Abram and Nathaniel. It just seemed to go to fast. They meet, Nathaniel knows the man is his soul mate but when he sees Abrams soulmark, he runs.

Abram never thought that he could have a second soul mate. He thought you only got one and his had passed away. Then here is this little guy showing him his mark and denying it all. He even goes so far to push him away. Then something happens to change their minds. For me the way they acted together in the beginning should have told them both something.

I loved this story but to me it was over way to fast. I understand mates and all that but to be branded with a mark is a bit bizarre to me. I think that the way they were together in the beginning should have had them wanting more of it. Although it gave me a jolt reading it. It was a fascinating story. Other than it seemed to be missing something, this story gave me everything I could have wanted.

Two sexy men, lots of passion and innocence, a bit of excitement and a touch of pain. I can’t wait to read the next book. I want to hear more about these amazing characters.

Review: This is the first story in this series and they should be read in order. It gives you an insight into their world and into their lives. I have got to say that this is an amazing series that I absolutely found fascinating and loved. I have read many stories of the paranormal type, shapeshifters, fae, vampires, and even some demons.

Although this is not the first time I have read one that has hounds of hell, it is the first one that I loved. One always thinks hounds of hell are just plain evil doing the work of the devil. In this one, they are basically doing jobs collecting the souls of the evil and taking them to hell. They are very loyal to their teammates, which are in fact their brothers and they are very loving.

Stryker and his brothers were sent to collect an evil soul and take him to hell. What they found instead was a true innocent with a white soul, but also Stryker’s mate. And he was as innocent as a newborn. His father had sold his soul in exchange for his own. He had kept him basically a prisoner. Now free Rafe has to learn the ways of the outside and to trust his mate. He has to also trust his mate to keep him safe. He fell in love with his mate.

I loved this story and cannot wait to start reading the next story. It has everything I could possibly want in it. Two very sexy men, hot sex, voyeurism, angles and demons, danger and excitement. I would recommend reading this because of those reasons and so many more. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I can happily say that I will be reading this over and over.

Blurb: Alec Ashcroft is afraid. Afraid of himself, the black outs, the hunger, and of what he might be capable of doing. See, Alec is a shifter, a wolf and he doesn’t know how to control his extraordinary power. Refusing to put his boyfriend Matt or his family at risk, Alec runs away from everything. He must protect others from his dark side and hopefully find the answers he’s been seeking all of his life.

The town of Redfern seemed the perfect escape, lots of forestland and animals to hunt, until Alec met Luca. Dark, seductive, sexy, Luca is like Alec and the scent of him drives Alec wild. He shows Alec how to control and use his power to his advantage and soon Luca exerts his allure over him. The two become entwined in a passionate and wild relationship with Luca even inviting him to join his pack high up in the mountains above town. Is this enigmatic new stranger to be trusted or is there something more sinister going on? All Alec wants to believe is that he’s finally found someone to calm the Beast Within.

Review: This is book one in the trilogy and needs to be read in order. I love the paranormal and especially romance. However, this one is a little darker than I normally like. However, it is a really good one. Alec was a werewolf going through the change the only problem was he didn’t know what he was. He would have black outs and when he woke up he would be covered in blood. He was living with his boyfriend Matt but had dreams of killing him. He knew that even though it would hurt them both he had to leave.

The problem was he didn’t know where to go but something was dragging him to a small town in the mountains. He had taken a job as a waiter but the dreams were still coming full force. He worked with Max and Phillip. Max was the daughter of the owner of the restaurant where they worked. Phillip was a man who Alec was interested in, but he feared that he would hurt him too. He just didn’t know what to do to stop what was happening.

That is until one night he met another like him. Luca was an alpha with a small pack. Luca and Alec were from the true bloods where as Luca’s pack was turned by Luca. Luca had made Alec his mate, but Alec was slowly learning that Luca and his pack was just a bunch of killers. On a night of hunting, he found out that it was the humans they were going after. He knew he had to do something to end it.

What he had not expected was Phillip. Phillip could ease his suffering. He can ease Alec’s wolf. Now all they had to do with Max’s help rid the town of the werewolves that brought danger and death to them. Max’s mother had at one time been with a werewolf, Luca’s grandfather. She had killed him with a knife that had poison on it. She would help them with this war between them. Alec was terrified that every one of his friends were in danger, but what he did not know was his sister had come looking for him. She was in danger as well.

This book has some awesome twist and turns to it. There is a lot of danger and death in this book, plus excitement, and love. The love that Alec was feeling for Phillip brought his grief and pain to a lower level. He was slowly giving this man his love.

I loved this book even though I have to wait to finish it by reading the next book. You will be fascinated by this story. You will fall in love with Phillip, Max, and Alec… They will give you everything you need. I have found another author that makes me want to read more.

Wild, rebellious, and rakish, Cade’s been a bad boy since the day he was born. Don’t get him wrong—he’s as aware of his faults as he is his virtues, and he thinks he’d be better off without a mate of his own. He’d be a hell of a handful to keep up with.

Then a chance encounter brings Cade into Dennis’ path. Blind since birth, Dennis prides himself on being plainspoken and knowing how to have a good time. He isn’t looking for a soulmate either, but after meeting Cade, he’s tempted to change his mind.

Sexy Cade meets Nathaniel’s friend handsome Dennis at a party and sparks fly. When it becomes apparent the two are soulmarked, they both panic, as neither of them wanted a mate. But with a little help from friends and family, they may change their minds.

This story was cute in the way Cade and Dennis tried to deny the soulmate bound and didn’t last a day. Loved reading how they reacted to the soul marks that all of a sudden pop up on them. Some hot steamy sex also added some sizzle to the book.

Good read.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts
As We Are is the fourth book in this amazing series and they need to be read in order. Each story gives you an insight into the future romantic couples as well as their amazing life. Each soul mate has a soul mark somewhere on their body that is identical to their mates. Some look for their mates for most of their lives always wanting them, but it is not the case for all of them.

In this story Cade and Dennis, feel that away. They didn’t feel like having one. Their friends and families give them a laugh each time it is brought up but they are adamant with not wanting one. That is until one special evening at Dennis’s party.

Cade’s brother had been invited to a party at a friend’s house, and he happened to decided to go with him. He notices Dennis right off the bat and things heat up. It heats up really fast after that, because their mating marks show up. If they leave it alone then they go just a bit crazy, however they had decided to let it hang for a few days at least. Knowing full well, what it meant, but passion is making them hotter and hotter.

Dennis was at one time bitter, and I don’t really get why through the book. I know that he is blind but he seems more able to do things than most people who can see. The both of them are quirky and a bit feisty. Each one thinks that they are so much alike that maybe that is the reason. Cade thinks it is because he is just not good enough, but most of it is the fact that these two can’t communicate worth crap. Thanks to Cade’s little brother there might be just a little trick to it. Because his little brother has a plan.

This story was amazing and I really loved it. It was by far my favorite out of the whole series. It gave me exactly what I could want in it. It gave me two sexy men, both men with a bit of self-confidence issues, passionate glances, hot sex, feisty brothers, excitement and just a bit of suspense.

It actually gave me more than just that, but you have to read it to find out. :-)
