Kay Elle Parker-The Vampire’s Captive

Kay Elle Parker takes us back into the Midnight Doms world that Lee Savino and Renee Rose created. Today, we’re going to be The Vampire’s Captive, and I wanna know where I can sign up for Colt, I mean, I wouldn’t mind overly much being his captive.

So, we’re in Arizona. Vienna is stuck on the side of the road, in short shorts, a tank top, and flip flops. This normally wouldn’t be a horrible thing in Arizona, but the problem is she’s stuck on the side of the road, 18 miles away from anything. Her tire blew, so she pulled over to the side of the road to fix it. While she was struggling, some lovely people pulled over on the side of the road to help her. And oh, to steal her car, with absolutely everything in it, including her phone, her purse, and all her money. None of the trucks or cars that are driving by stop for her, so she manages to hike herself to a rest area, where she is able to find some boulders with ledges to sit on. While she is hiding herself away there, she hears several cars pull up and a bunch of guys get out and start talking about mobile blood units. Vienna tries so hard to be quiet, but she does let loose with one little gasp.

Colt is meeting with a Russian and another vampire to talk about getting some golden blood humans through. Golden blood people are those who are Rh null. (this is a real thing, and there are legit something like only 40 people in the world have it. I think there are only like 10 people worldwide who are donors.) Anyway, in this world, people with golden blood taste like all the best things in the world combined. So, Colt and his evil associates are breeding and selling golden bloods. Colt lets everyone leave and and pretends to leave, but he comes back to see if he could find the person who gasped. That’s when he found Vienna, who he grabbed and then shoved in his trunk.

OK, this is one of the best parts. Vienna is claustrophobic. That’s not the best thing. The best thing is that after she freaks out, her brain kicks in, and she figures out that she can get the tire iron out of the compartment. So she does. And she smacks the shit out of Colt when he pulls her out of the trunk. That is the best thing. Or at least one of the best things. Superhero Vienna is also the best thing.

I love Vienna. I mean, just absolutely love her. She is strong, fierce, and she will definitely kick your ass, especially if she has steel toed boots. She’s like one of those little cute purse dogs who doesn’t realize how small she is, with a huge dog attitude, and really, she has the badassness to back up the attitude. I kinda want to be her. I think that she and Selene will get along quite well, and they might end up running the world if you let them loose.

I like Colt. He is a very good man. He’s also sneaky and tricksy and determined. He does what he has to so that he can do what is expected of him by those he’s working with. I think that he’s got enough of the Domliness to handle Vienna, but is willing to let her be Vienna, if you know what I mean.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go get some stompy boots with steel toes.

I have to admit, I really disliked Lucius at times, I mean to the point of introducing him to the sun at parts of this book. I understand his points, but I am still really mad at him.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Jessica Gadizala-The Sacrifice

Jessica is a first time author for me, but after reading The Sacrifice, I don’t think that will continue. I’m going to be keeping my eye out on this series, because I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next with these guys. I’m going to have to go back and read her other books too. This is a PNR MC book, and it’s a really interesting combination, and one that I thought worked really well.

So, we have Lenore. She’s part of a hidden coven of witches. She’s a little rebellious, doesn’t like to do what she’s told, has a hard time with meditating and doing parts of being a witch. Her coven has an arrangement with a group in the outer world. Each generation, one witch must act as a sacrifice and go to this group. No one knows what happens to the sacrifices, all they know is that they are never seen again. Lenore has just become this generation’s sacrifice. She was told the night before so that there’s no chance of her running away. She undergoes the rituals, and then climbs into the coffin-like box in a van to be taken away.

Lycus and his brothers are a motorcycle club. But that’s not all they are. They are also demons who have been stuck on Earth for eons. Several generations ago, they managed to make a pact with a coven of witches. Each generation they get one of the witches to use her as they need. This time, they have Lenore, and she’s getting Lycus’ brother Ace’s nerves, because she makes it rain all the time, so he told Lycus to fix the issue.

I really enjoyed this one. It’s not a mindfuck, not precisely, but it is very twisty, and it did leave me guessing, which we all know that I really like. I think that Jessica did a really good job with making people guess what was happening and then changing everything up all over the place.

Lenore is really interesting. She has a real otherworldliness, which, well, makes sense because she’s lived in a hidden enclave all her life. She isn’t familiar with all the little things that make life up these days. But she has a very etheral look on life as well, mostly because she sees it from a magical point of view. I think that it really colors everything. I have to wonder if the other sacrifices had that same kind of POV. She also has an insatiable curiosity, which makes her want to learn everything possible.

Lycus may be a biker demon, but he’s not what you might think of when you imagine a biker demon who has been stuck on Earth for millenia. I think that probably comes from the fact that he’s been stuck around humanity for so many years. Even a demon is going to lose their evil edge eventually. Now, he’s still a demon and he’s still evil, but I think that there is a real human edge to him as well.

OK, that’s all for this one today. Nothing below the picture today. Go check it out!

Anna Edwards-The Power of a Myth

I love Anna’s Glacial Blood series a whole lot. I’m all dragged into the series, and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen with the next one, because dayum. But of all the books of the series I’ve read so far, The Power of a Myth is my favorite. It’s not very focused on the world as a whole, or even the fight that is ongoing, although there are bits and pieces of that through the book. Instead, it is laser focused on Hayden and Molly. All of the books focus on the couple in question, but never one as much as this one, I think. And I think that it works for this one in a way that it wouldn’t in other books.

So, we have Hayden and we have Molly. And we have the Vietnam War. Molly is a puma shifter from the Glacial Blood pack, and she has just finished training to be a nurse and has joined the military. And she’s just arrived at a base in Vietnam. She’s not even technically on duty yet, but when the sirens go off warning that there’s incoming wounded, she gets pulled into the OR. This is when she meets Hayden. He saved a friend and got injured. Molly helps work on his friend and then gets to talking to Hayden, and there’s just something there about him.

Hayden is just fascinated by Molly. They spend all the time together that they can. Then he sees her coming out of the jungle and loses it, because the only reason people go into the jungle around the base is to fuck. So, he confronts her, she gets mad and tells him that if he wants to know what she was doing, he should follow her. That’s where he finds out her secret and not just that she’s a puma, but that he’s also her mate. They swear to each other that after the war is over, they will be together, because he has to leave for a mission in the morning.

Can you guess where we are headed? Yeah. That’s where we’re going.

My heart broke for Molly. She lost her mate and had no body to grieve over. She’s spent the last fifty years since she saw him last living alone, being alone. She lives as part of the Glacial Blood Pack, and has helped to train Kas and other members of the pack, but she lives a part from them, in her cave. Her very nice cave, to be sure, but in her cave. She’s fiercely independent, but now in her 70s, she’s finding life harder, so she’s now headed to the mansion. Issue is, she’s not the only one. I think that she’s really strong, and it isn’t even that she learned to be strong during those years, but that’s just who she is all the time. There’s just this spine of steel. She’s also very caring, because she loves her pack and she helps her pack. I really like her a lot.

I think that for as much as Molly broke my heart, Hayden hurt it even worse. Hayden had to willingly and knowingly make the sacrifice that he did. He knew what he was getting into. I think that he even knew, in his heart of hearts, that it was going to be sch a long time before he’s able to lay down his burden. Not only has he made the sacrifice, he keeps track of Molly through people who know them both, so he’s got that little self-torture going on. So yeah, that’s why I think that he hurt my heart worse.

Hayden is a damned honorable warrior though. He made his choice willingly, he could’ve run away, but he looked at what was being told him and he weighed the options and did what he saw as the right thing, even if it’s the thing he didn’t want to do.

I love a second chance kind of romance, and this is definitely in that second chance category, but it’s more than that to me. It’s kind of like an extended chance versus a second chance. It’s not like their relationship truly ended in a break up, sooo… I dunno. Do you see where I’m going with my thoughts? I hope so, because I’m not 100% sure that I do.

Anyway, nothing under the picture today. Go check it out!

Off topic: I have a gift exchange set up for my FB group, if you like to send out gifts to random people and get gifts sent to you, check it out! My theory is that it has been a shitty year, and we can spread a little sunshine. The budget is just $10, so it’s pretty inexpensive.

Claire Marta-Sandman

We have another release from Claire. This one is part of the Ceasefire universe. Sandman is not the continuation of the last book but takes place at the same time. It is also an extended version of a story that appeared in an anthology.

We have Morpheus, who is drunk pretty much out of his mind when he isn’t stoned. He remembers his family being killed, and the drugs are the only things that keep him from feeling pain. He just wants to be left alone with his drugs and his horror filled past, but of course, it’s not that easy. One night, a lost girl runs into his house. She doesn’t know who she is, where she is, or how she got there. She doesn’t even know where there is. But Morpheus feels some kind of way about her, even if he really doesn’t want to.

Robin is our lost girl. She’s a member of Gabriel’s team, taking over Mavi’s spot, not that she knows that right now. All she knows is that she has ended up on this island with a beautiful and troubled man. Well, she’s about to find out that it isn’t just one man. There are actually 3 men on the island, Morpheus, Illusions, and Nightmares. Nightmares stays locked in a dungeon, which Morpheus throws Robin into. And he lives up to his name, but there’s something about her that atttacts him to her, so Nightmares covers Robin in his blood and she isn’t scared of him anymore. Illusions does what his name says, but he creates an illusion that nearly kills Robin. She just has some problems with the guys at first. But Robin decides that they need to actually be a family, and she does what she can to bring the boys together, until all of a sudden, she’s just not there anymore.

The book takes place in different dimensions, just like any other Ceasefire book does. We get to see some of our old friends, including Thanatos, who is a cowboy in this world, which I think is awesome. I wonder if his horse is pale or has no name. I kind of see Thanatos like Sam Elliot in some Western. (yummmmm… Sam Elliot)

I love Robin. She has such a beautiful heart. She just has so much compassion and empathy for everyone, and she really wants to have people be the best them that they can be. You can see that in the way that she tries to bring Morpheus and his brothers together. With her there or when they are doing what she suggests, they work better, as a more cohesive unit. She also can talk to the dead, which is why she’s on Gabriel’s team. I do kind of feel sorry for her, since she can’t really get rid of the dead. I just really like her.

Now, Morpheus. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, I read comics. One of the comics I read was Sandman by Neil Gaiman. If you haven’t read it, go do that. But that comic really formed my inner version of Morpheus when I read this book. Of course, that’s not how Claire described him, but I have 30+ years of seeing him as this character, so, you know, there you go. I really like Claire’s version of Morpheus. I felt bad for him too, because he was so torn apart inside. all he wanted was to forget and not to feel his pain again, not that it was going to actually happen. Then he has his brothers, Nightmares and Illusions, which he kind of hates and does what he can to keep them away from him, at least until Robin comes around. I think that he is actually pretty brave, at least when he starts doing things. I’m never going to think he wasn’t brave, but you don’t see it at first.

I can’t wait for the second installment of Cassandra’s story, so hopefully Claire won’t keep us waiting too long for that.

I worry about Cupid. I mean, really.

OK, that’s all on this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Claire Marta & Nia Farrell-Darcy

Darcy is the 5th book in the Guarded Heart series by Nia and Claire, and I have to say that I have a lot of feelings about Darcy. Complicated feelings. This series is not a standalone series, it has an overarching storyline and you ahve to have read the previous books to understand where we are. Each book is a complete story, so you don’t have a cliffhanger, and each trio has their HEA by the end of the book.

So, Darcy has pulled up at her new job. She’s at a boys’ school and she’s going to teach the boys martial arts and give therapeutic massages. But that’s not the only reason that she’s there. That’s just her public job. She’s also undercover. She’s looking for someone who has done some bad things, and her team suspect that the man is at this school, and may be up to his old tricks. But until she can shut him down, Darcy is left in enemy territory. And I’m really not being hyperbolic here. She doesn’t have a friend here, anywhere. The man who hired her isn’t here, but the headmaster, a Russian, is, along with his two thugs. He doesn’t like her from te very beginning, and he has no problems at all in making sure that she knows it. Trust me, he’s not a nice guy.

For Darcy, the only redeeming anything at the moment is the fact that Dr. Liu Chan is at the school. She’s been looking for him. He’s her old lover, but that’s not why she was trying to find him. You see, he likes to experiment. And he’s not all that ethical. Darcy would know.

Meanwhile, at the Citadel, we have Zana and Lukus. They are partners and they are pretty sure that Darcy is their fated mate. But, there are problems. One is that they don’t know where she is. Another is that she is permanently banned from the Citadel. A third is that no one knows what she is up to and if she can be trusted. So, you know, just a couple of issues. None of that stops Zana and Lukus from wanting her. When Darcy contacts her cousin, Raven, and suggests that they meet up, Zana tags along and manages to kiss Darcy, which lets him know that yup, she’s theirs.

When we first met Darcy, back in Raven’s book. I really liked her. I thought that she was tough, strong, caring, and loyal. She was going to do everything she could to protect her cousin Raven and Raven’s daughter Willow. Then, we got to meet her again in Riley, and my feelings changed a lot about her. She made some choices that were… harmful to many people. She was judgy mcjudgerson, and was determined to believe the absolute worst about the guys in the Citadel. So, Claire and Nia had a struggle to go to get her to a point where I might like her at the beginning of this book. They did succeed. But, I have to admit it took some time, and I didn’t want to completely trust her until more than 1/2 way through the book.

Zana and Lukus are both really good men who really just want to find their fated mate, have babies, and live a happy life. They also want to make sure that their mate, and all the mates of their brothers, are safe, and right now, that’s ain’t so much true. There is a whole bevy of enemies out there, and no one knows what’s going to happen or how to avoid it.

There are things afoot, evil sneaky things, and I want to know all the answers, RIGHT NOW.

I want to know whose eyes are being used. It wasn’t the person I thought it was at first, but now I just don’t know. I have suspiscions.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check out the whole series! Happy reading!

Addison Cain-The Relic

Addison is back with a new book. The Relic is either the 2nd or 3rd book in this series, depending on how you want to look at it. It started with Pearl in Catacombs, then we had Jade in Cathedral, and now we have Pearl again, this time it’s with Vladislav. This is a real change from the other 2 books, and it was fucking amazing. I have so many, many, many things to say about this one.

So, we met Vlad in the last book. He came and dealt with his son, Darius, and set up his granddaughter, Jade. Vlad is basically the oldest living, or unliving, thing anywhere. Malcolm came to him and told him about Pearl, so Vlad went down and rescued her, his wife, his soul, from the crypt in which Darius had bricked her. So, now, he has to convince Pearl to love him again.

Pearl is… well, she’s not in good shape. She has a long, traumatic history before she even got to Darius and before he did what he did. She has all these triggers and all these damaged areas, plus her memory is all fucked up because of Darius. So, when she has this powerful creature telling her that he loves her, that she’s his wife, she, well, she just doesn’t do all that well. And, you have to remember that she was trapped by Darius in the 1920s, and now it’s 2020, so there’s all kinds of instant culture shock.

I absolutely adore Vlad. He’s incredibly powerful and incredibly ruthless. In fact, he’s so ruthless that I think that there needs to be a better description for it. He’s violent and might be just a wee bit psychopathic. In short, he just ain’t right. And I mean that in the best possible sense. He’s also got a really interesting sense of humor and is terrifying toward everyone but Pearl. There’s just something about him that’s just so visceral and that I like so much.

Pearl is so delicate, but at the same time, she’s not. She just has to find that bit that isn’t so delicate. I think that she hasn’t figured out that she has that strength, but she had to have had it so that she could handle everything that she was dealing with when it came to Darius, and then when it comes to everything else that she has to deal with. She will be utterly terrifying when she realizes all of her power, I think. I know that I don’t want to mess with her, because I think she’s rather terrifying now.

OK, here’s where we are going to get into my opions. It may be spoilery, so I’m going to put it all under the picture. Before I do that, I’m going to say that this isn’t tremendously dark, but it is definitely and Addison read.

So, go check it out! And see below for my opinions.

OK, so as I was reading this, I saw how much Vlad loved Pearl. And as I was reading it, I was just impressed with how tender this tremendouly terrifying demonic ancient creature was with this poor broken soul. Then, as I read more of Vlad’s back story and thought about the book after reading it, I started to wonder. And what I wondered was is it really love or is it obsession.

This is always one of the things that I think about when I’m reading Sigil’s story, because I have the same questions when it comes to how Sovereign feels about Sigil. I don’t doubt that Vlad has deep feelings for Pearl, it’s obvious by how he treats her. What I do doubt is that it’s love. Well, sort of. I think that he’s dangerously obsessed with her and it’s obsessive love. Which fits his personality and his back story perfectly.

Vlad is going to do anything he has to, ANYTHING, in order to make sure that Pearl is happy, even if it means that he has to mess with her mind or fuck her on the ground at her daughter’s wedding.

I would like to see a book set in the future, because I have a feeling that history may repeat itself.

Sara Fields-Thirst

Once upon a time, Sara wrote a story that went into a vampire anthology. Once she got the rights back, she took that story and reworked it and turned it into Thirst. This was a totally obscene, incredibly filthy, so fucking dirty story. And I hnestsly don’t think that I described how dirty it was appropriately. I mean, take how filthy you think it might be and then multiply it by 10,000, and you might get it right.

We start with Ruby. Ruby has been trained for pretty much her entire life to be a demon hunter. She kills vampires, demons, and all manner of evil. She’s good at it and she takes great pride in being good at her work. She manages to get rid of all the various evil things she runs into until one night, when she runs into something she can’t kill. Turns out that it’s a demon who has been possessed by Cain. Yes, that Cain. The first vampire. And then it gets worse. Cain decides that he’s going to possess her. In, you know, a very different sense.

Turns out that Ruby bears the Mark of Cain, making her the one person in the world who is his perfect match. She is, quite literally, made for him. Once he finds that out, he makes some choices, including spanking her. A lot.

I like Ruby. She’s a little scary sometimes. She’s also a lot strong, both mentally and physically, except for maybe when it comes to Cain, but she’s going to do everything she can to fight him and deal with that. She’s stubborn. She’s determined, and I can respect the hell out of all those things. I think that she has a very black and white view of the world in the beginning, and the world is more like endless shades of grey. It may be because she was raised as a hunter and to fight evil. It’s hard to get past that, I think. It would take a major world shift to stop seeing everything in those stark blacks and whites.

Cain is a very interesting character. I am almost neutral on him, if that makes sense. I neither like or dislike him. I am interested in him and I think that there is a lot more to him than we see or learn. The entire story is in Ruby’s head, so we never really get to know Cain in the same way that we do her. All of our interpretations and opinions of Cain are focused through Ruby and her interactions, thoughts, and feelings about him, so they are very subjective. I don’t think that I would care for it in most books, but I think that it works really well here, and it really lets us see Ruby’s journey through the entire book.

The full info about the sacrifice, wow.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Cari Silverwood-Sacrificed to the Sea

So, when you go look at Sacrificed to the Sea on the mighty Amazon, you will see that it has a big orange banner for bestseller in number theory. That’s because, for some odd reason, the PTB at Zon have decided to put the book in Math. There is a warning on the blurb that guarantees this isn’t a math book, that it’s a romance. I think that’s a trip. This is a very Cari book. When I finished reading it, I just sat and stared at my kindle for quite a while. The whole book was a total WTF moment, and I totally WTFed over it.

We start with Rafaella. She is on a ship sometime hundreds of years ago, whoring herself out to the sailors in exchange for passage. Right up until there is a hurricane, then she’s bad luck, and she’s tied up and sacrificed to try to appease the sea. Instead of dying, she ends up becoming a mermaid. On top of that, Rafaella periodically has to go kill and devour a man.

Many years after her transformation, Rafaella takes Wolfgang’s lover and fucks and eats him. Of all the men she’s ever devoured, he may be the one that she actually regrets.

So, Wolfgang is a marine scientist who thinks he’s figured out the secret behind Rafaella. He comes and sits on the beach each night talking to her. Then he manages to catch her. Then, being a Cari Silverwood book, he decides to do horrible, terrible, sexy, dirty, wonderful things to her.

I don’t know whether I love to hate Wolfie or hate to love him. I do know that I’m fascinated by him. There’s just something about him that’s both hard and vulnerable. That’s a really tough line to have to walk, I think. I mean, he knows what he wants, he wants his revenge on Rafaella, and he’s very angry, rightfully so, but when he gets her, he’s pulled in and there are times that he gets really wrapped up in what he’s doing, and it seems like he loses his way and desire for revenge sometimes. He thinks of himself as a monster, and with some of the things that he does to Rafaella, yeah, I can see how he could think that.

With Rafaella, it’s different. I both like her and maybe kinda hate her. I understand why she is the way that she is. Frankly, I would probably be the same if I went through what she did. Especially since she really spent a lot of time completely alone in the sea. It’s easy to lose yourself, and she did. The reason that I kinda hate her is that she has completely lost herself too. I know, that doesn’t make any sense to anyone, but it makes sense to me. I think that she has some really hidden depths and there are things about her that she doesn’t know, and she doesn’t figure them out on her own.

I feel like this book really just scratched the surface of these characters, and I love that. It gives me a lot of room to decide how I feel about everything, and gave me room to imagine what comes next. While I wouldn’t mind another book with these characters, I am perfectly happy without one. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t line up to read one if Cari wrote it.

OK, no spoilers on this one, because, well, you really don’t want any. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Claire Marta-The Dove and The Darkness

This is the 2nd Claire Marta book of this week, as promised. The Dove and the Darkness is the 5th book in her Ceasefire series, and it covers Cassandra’s story. You have to read these in order, you can’t just jump into a book in the middle of the series and get it. There’s a whole lot going on, and you need the background to understand why Cassandra did the things that she did and why she has ended up where she is.

For those who aren’t familiar with Ceasefire, it’s a lot to try to explain. It’s a PNR. It primarily deals with Hell and various Hell and underworld dimensions. Lucifer is a main character in the first books, and is a supporting character in all the other books, including this one. So, Cassandra is an Oracle, who was raised in Hell from the time she was 6, as Lucifer’s foster daughter and her 1/2 sister is Mavi, who is Lucifer’s consort. It’s complicated.

Cassandra made some choices based on some information she got from her visions, and, well, it didn’t necessarily go well for her. When she wakes up somewhere she isn’t familiar with, she starts to worry. That’s when she finds out that she’s been taken from where she was and is now in a prison, waiting to be trained so that she can be given to the person who has bought her. And her training isn’t going to be how to sit and embroider a pretty picture. Nope, she’s going to learn to do all the sexual things out there, and if she doesn’t do it right, bad things are going to happen.

That’s where Master Soren comes into play. He’s there to train Cassandra. He’s all very Dom-ly. He is nominally under the Warden, but you get the idea that there is a lot more going on there than we are seeing. The Warden, who is a nasty ass bitch, really likes him, because he will totally Top her when she wants him to. Soren is basically in charge of the training, which is what brings Cassandra to his attention. He’s been doing this for a very long time, so he knows what he’s doing. That includes isolating her in a room by herself and giving her no other contact for days, other than sliding food in under a grate. When he comes to get her again, she’s so grateful to see him, because she gets to see someone. When Cassandra is good, she gets orgasms. When she’s bad, she gets punished. Soren really enjoys it. Cassandra definitely enjoys it, at least parts of it. There are other things that she likes about the time she spends with him.

I like Cassandra. I think that she is a lot stronger than anyone really gives her credit for. I mean, she does have all these visions, and if she’s not careful, they do overwhelm her. I mean, they do get overwhelming enough that she has hurt herself to help control everything, but she’s still dealt with these things all her life. Being raised by a demon and Lucifer, she has been really protected from a lot, but that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had terrible things happen to her anyway. And she survived that. In this case, even as Soren is breaking her down and she is getting in deeper with him, she is still trying to be herself, and she is still fighting. I have a lot of respect for that, and I think that it’s going to do her a lot of good in the future.

Interestingly enough, I feel like I don’t have as good a grasp on Soren as I could. I think I like what we’ve seen of him, but there’s just a lot hidden when it comes to him. Even being in his head at times doesn’t necessarily give us a lot to him. But, like I said, I think that I like what we know about him. I can’t wait for the next book, to see more about him.

Before you read this, remember that this stuff may be spoilers.

It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize who Soren is, where they are, and who his brother is. I wanted to dope slap myself when I got there, because duh.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Sara Fields-Alpha

Sara is back with a new book. Alpha is a shifter/omegaverse smashup kind of thing. I really enjoyed reading, and I would like to see more out of this world, because I think that Sara could go so many places with it.

Dawn is a brilliant stem cell biologist. She is one of the tops in her field. Which is why she gets picked up by a super sekrit governmental agency that doesn’t really exist. You know the kind, right? This super sekrit group is in charge of the paranormal world. They are supposed to hide it and control it and police it. And generally, they do not too bad, but… And there’s always a but, isn’t there? So, this group comes to Dawn, and basically abducts her and takes her to their black site so that she can do research because one of the particular groups they watch has been starting to act up. These shifters are starting to get more aggressive, harder to control, all kinds of things. And this gov can’t figure out why the fuck it’s happening. So Dawn is there to figure out what is going on. The first thing she does is get introduced to some of the shifters that have been imprisoned. One of them, a woman named Rebecca, a beta, changes for Dawn, and tells her that the reason the shifters are getting more active is because their alpha has risen and is coming for them. And, oh yeah, Dawn is his mate. And the alpha will be coming for her.

Then we have Kiba, the alpha. He has risen, pretty much by magic. The Earth brought him to life, and he’s going to go rescue his betas and his mate. Then he and his mate will get busy and have all the kids in the world, and the shifter race will be able to carry on.

Kiba is very determined, but he’s also a really good man. He wants to make sure that he takes care of his mate and his people. Of course, that means that he might have to spank the hell out of his mate and kill the people who are holding his people captive. I don’t blame him.

Dawn is really smart, which is both good and bad for her. Good in that she makes things happen that can help everyone. Bad in that she doesn’t always go and talk to people about her ideas. She’s also very determined, which see above. I like her. I like Kiba. I think that they both have the same goals in mind.

I really would like to see stories for Rebecca and Nikita.
