New Haven Series
House of Théoden Season Two

Genre: M/M, Paranormal, Dark

10928048_203655426471801_576063513_n

Commanded (Book #1)

Synopsis:

Théoden: On the evening of branding my new son, Noel, my King has called a special meeting of his Court. I can’t possibly guess what this meeting is about, as everything within his kingdom is running perfectly. I do know one thing, Ara loves to entertain and be entertained, so at least that’s something to look forward to. What I’m not looking forward to is having to see Nolan, Lord of District Four. We really don’t get along. Well, as for my children, when the Master is away, the boys will play. In fact, I insist on it. Noel: I’ve just received my official brand, the insignia of the House of Théoden. Along with the brand comes a load of responsibilities I am to adhere to. Apparently, my new life involves being an enforcer.

I’m to be trained by Marco, my eldest and most sadistic brother. I’m not looking forward to that, not one bit. At least tonight, I’ll get a reprieve. For tonight, we celebrate as only the House of Théoden can.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 19,100 words in this novelette.

book 2

Ascension (Book #2)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Tonight, I have to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. I have to choose which two on my children to send off with my Sire, my King, Ara. As you know, I don’t like to share what belongs to me, but I can’t deny my King what he’s commanded of me. The highlight of my evening, however, will be my ascension to Prince of the City. I’m expected to announce my own decree at tonight’s ceremony and I can’t wait. The citizen of the Kingdom of Ara WILL respect my rule… or else.

Noel: I got a break last night when Théoden allowed his sons some free time. But Tonight is going to be no walk in the park for me. Marco is all business and he doesn’t take his job of training me lightly. I’m still trying to figure out what I can and can’t do around him, the cruel, sadistic bastard is so unpredictable. One thing is for certain, I want to learn what it means to be a vampire. I don’t want to be ruled by my nature… I want to control it.

My Review: 3.5/5 Stars

This go round I knew what to expect from Nicholas. I can’t say that I was disappointed or anything. He was down and dirty like in Season One. I liked that he had Théoden point of view.

Noel is actually working out in Théoden house and I can’t say that, that surprised me, though I love that he didn’t loose the smartassness about himself.

Things are changing for Théoden and they are for the better. He is now the Prince of the City because seriously who wouldn’t want that. His king is trying to take over more territory.

My biggest turn off was shockingly not the insane amount of sex and cum or the violence. It was Marco. He worked my nerves in Season One but it wasn’t so bad. This go round, I was to the point if I had a stack, I would have stacked his ass in the heart, numerous times. I get he needed to be a bad ass, but damn.

All in all, I really enjoyed it. Can’t wait to read more, though I think Mr. Bella is the only author I might be able read with this much darkness in it. My heart just can’t take it and I’m already invested in the series to the point where I really want to know what is gong to happen next.

book 3

Negotiations (Book #3)

Synopsis:

Theoden: I am now the official Prince of the City. The reins have been handed over and I am now fully in control. My first order of business is to fortify the defenses of my territory. Thanks to my King, Ara’s decree, my plate is exceptionally full. I have to solidify an alliance with Celestial Dragon King, Evander. I also have to make a new alliance with Wolf Alpha, Deacon. That meeting can either end bloody or amicable. Wolves are a stubborn sort and savage in their quest for more power. This night should prove to be very interesting.

Noel: Marco doesn’t play, and he’s going to make me regret my foolish decision. I should have listened to Derek. I know not to cross the mean bastard now. This night has been so busy: Theoden’s ascension, my training, what happened at the bar, and on top of that, I still have a punishment looming over me. I haven’t even begun to search for a human to sire. Hell, I don’t even know how? Do I just grab some unlucky bastard off the streets and say, “hey, I’m your new vampire daddy!” This is so messed up, I don’t even want to sire anyone, but I have no choice. Also, because I’m Theoden’s son, that makes me a General, which I believe is a higher rank than Enforcer. What that means, exactly, I’m not sure… but I know I’ll find out sooner or later.

book 4

Hunted (Book #4)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Far be it from me to refuse an invitation from the Celestial Dragon King, Evander. Besides, what’s the point of living forever if you can’t have fun? A little distraction would serve me well. I still had so much to do this night. Children to Sire, a rebel hybrid to hunt down and a test to conduct with Noel that would surely elevate his status in my eyes. That is, if he passed. Apart from that, there was this matter of hunting Dante. Sure, I enlisted the assistance of wolf Alpha, Deacon, but I didn’t want to leave the hunt of Dante solely up to him and his pack, especially with the price being so high. I do know one thing, Dante better be worth it.

Noel: My training with Marco is advancing and the more I learn about what I am, the more I discover who I am. Maybe Théoden had a point when he told me that being a vampire is what I wanted. I don’t know. I do know that I find myself enjoying the powers and strength I possess. He really is making me into the vampire he wants me to be. I realize that even more now as I try to figure out who I should sire and why. This person will be my child, an extension of me. How do I want to be represented?

Coming Soon:

CS

Evolution (Book #5)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Dante is within my grasp. I’m actually very excited to meet my future son. He’s got wolf’s blood flowing within his veins, so I know he’ll be the stubborn sort, but I do like a challenge. As for Deacon, the wolf Alpha has surprised me. I hadn’t expected him to locate Dante so quickly. He’s  a cunning one I’m going to have to keep my eye on. His ambition is both admirable and dangerous. As for my King’s decree, things are moving along smoothly. I have two more children to sire and then I would have fulfilled my duty. The sooner I’m done with that, the quicker I can get to training my new child. I’m so looking forward to breaking him in.

Noel: As for my obligation to the King, I met his expectations. I’ve sired my first son and it’s been one hell of an experience. I thought I would feel overwhelmed, but Romeo is taking to this life so naturally. I guess you could say that I chose wisely.  I’m also getting the hang of being in control and being his Father. No doubt, Marco’s training is seeing me through a lot of transition.  Now, I have to hold up my part in the bargain Théoden made with Deacon. Can’t say I’m happy about being used as a bargaining chip, but it’s out of my hands. As for my training with Marco, he’s promised to put me through the ringer physically. I’m ready to learn more and grow stronger.

About me? Hmmm, I’m just a person with a wild imagination and a love for words who was sitting around the house one day and said, “Why hasn’t anyone written a book like this before?”. As with every storyteller, I wanted to share mine with the world. I like my erotica dark, gritty, sexy… and even a little raunchy.

My Dragon Masters by Krystal Shannan

MyDragonMasters-1

My Dragon Masters ( Sanctuary, TX Book #2)

Genre: M/F/M, Paranormal Romance, Light BDSM

Synopsis:

Fire and ice don’t go together… or do they?

When the beast within wakes, her desires burn with a fire she can’t escape. She won’t let anything stop her, not even the fact that she has no memory. She doesn’t know who… or what she is, but also can’t shake the feeling that she’s something more than human.

Dragon shifter twin brothers, Miles and Eli Blackmoor, are exiled Drakonae kings. A thousand years ago they lost their soul mate, Diana Karlson. Betrayed by their own people, they spent centuries on earth searching for a way to reclaim their birthright and their wife. They’ve dedicated their lives to protecting the House of Lamidae, hoping one day one of the seers in the house would have a vision to help them.

All the Sisters ever say is… she is coming to you.

Warning: Contains scorching m/f/m menage, bondage, and a sassy dragon female who wants her mates to play!

goodreads-badge-add-plus-fad3b68d35050280ea55d50f17c654b5

My Review: 3.5/5 Stars

My Dragon Masters tell the story of Diana (an ice breathing dragon) and twin brothers Miles and Eli (fire breathing dragons).

Diana has been lost to the brothers for a thousand years and they finally get her back, but the bad guy is quickly on her heels.

Now the war is on full swing, but will Diana and her two hunky dragon husbands come out on top?

I like this story, I really did until it seemed like Diana took a stupid pill. Though she was away from Miles and Eli once they were connected again, it was like they were never apart. I got the feeling that Diana didn’t want to get accustomed to their new ways.

And when she went after her son, she should have listened to her husbands. Now’s she’s hurt the three most important men her life and put a whole town in danger. Her saying sorry just didn’t do it for me. I wanted to slap her. You’re at war, work smarter not deadly.

But with all that said, I really can’t wait for the next book. Is it just me or is June just a little to far away?!

Sexting Texas by Darah Lace

Texas Tallulah Taylor never thought she’d be turned on by a dirty text from a stranger, one that leads to a delicious sexting session with her best friend. Will Sanderson never thought the love of his life would see him as anything but a friend. Maybe sexting Texas will show her this cowboy aims to give her the ride of her life…for the rest of her life.

Excerpt:

“Got ‘em.” Jangling her keys at him to show her success, Texas pulled open the screen door. It took her a moment to get the key in the lock, but she managed and the tumblers clicked. She turned to thank him. “Goodni—”

He stood close, too close, his big frame crowding her space. She glanced up at his face, but it was too dark to make out his expression. The hand at her waist pushed her against the door. His head lowered. Warm breath teased her lips, and the slight scent of beer tickled her nose.

“Will?” She barely got the question out before his lips brushed hers softly, lightly. Her tummy took a little tumble. Then his mouth opened over hers, his tongue moving in slow to skim hers, and the little tumble turned into a high-rise free fall.

A low groan rumbled in his throat. His other hand palmed the back of her head as his hips ground into hers. She arched against him, aching for the hand on her ribs to venture farther up, aching for his muscular thigh to slide between her legs.

His tongue eased from her mouth, and his lips were gone, along with the weight of his body. The last to leave were his hands as he stepped back and adjusted the hat cocked to one side of his head. He cleared his throat. “Sorry.”

She wasn’t. Like the kiss they’d shared fourteen years ago, this one was a total surprise. And like that kiss, it rocked her world. She hadn’t even thought about stopping him, not for a second. Wished he’d do it again. “Too much alcohol.”

“Yeah, and talk of sex.”

“Huh? Oh, yeah.” Definitely.

He backed up to the edge of the porch. “See you Monday night.”

“Monday?” God, she sounded like a moron. What was it they said about alcohol and brain cells?

“Town meeting, remember?”

Texas groaned. Maybe she’d get drunk again Monday night so she’d have an excuse not to go. “I hate those things.”

“Me, too.” Will pivoted on the ball of one boot and took the steps two at a time. “Night.”

“Night.” Texas watched him for a second, that sauntering walk unmistakable, then sighed and let herself in the house. She shut the door, leaned against it, and traced her lips with fingers that shook. No doubt about it, William Charles Sanderson had kissed her for the second time in her life. And once again he’d apologized.

 

 

The Dom Delivers by Nese Lane

He’s a Dominant, and she’s as vanilla as they come…

Designer Jenna Jaynes enjoys the safe bubble of her creative world, until her delivery guy bursts through and steals her heart. CFO Aden Kelley’s regimented world is thrown into chaos when a spitfire dressmaker captures his soul. Will the Dom convince vanilla to swirl?

Blog Tour: The Protector by Jessie G.

The Protector Tour Banner

The Protector Final - 700H

The Protector (Sizzling Miami #3)

Publication Date: February 13th. 2015

Genre: M/M, Erotic, Romance, BDSM

Synopsis:

There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango’s prized whore. One look into those terror filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but a reason to live. Eight years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jensen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn’t until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all.

Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

The Protector Tour Banner 2

Excerpt: 18+

If he had to look in those concerned eyes one more second he was going to lose his shit and he didn’t even know why. What he needed to do was get the ball rolling on their forty-eight hour fuck-fest. The clock was ticking and he refused to waste another second pondering things best left un-pondered. “So what’s the prize?”

“The prize?” Damn but Javier was cute with his nose wrinkled in confusion. Kyle couldn’t resist leaning in and rubbing his own against it, causing Javier to giggle. There it was again, boy on the cusp of discovery.

“For the winner of tongue tag, there’s got to be a prize.” Kyle pretended to think about it and rocked back against Saul, willing him into the game. “I know!”

Vibrating with anticipation, Javier pressed in close along his front, rubbing their cocks together and begged, “Tell me!”

And to think, Javier had called him adorable. “Winner gets to ride his cock.”

Saul rocked him forward and he could feel Javier automatically respond. Just like that they were one fluid movement, now if only Javier were willing to roll over and offer up his ass they could be one fluid fuck chain. Though he was content to be the bottom, Kyle just knew being the guy in the middle of Saul and Javier…in this position…was going to rock his world. The whole staged ménage to get the right camera angle usually included a test of his dexterity and rarely came with a satisfying orgasm. This right here, the leisurely seductive rocking felt so intimate and….damn! Focus, he needed to focus on the moment and store that thought away for the future.

“Well then what’s the loser get?” Javier asked.

It was the perfect response. Not that he thought either of them was going to be selfish lovers, but it was always good to get confirmation. “Uhm, I guess that depends. I’m thinking some oral gratification would be a good consolation prize. Does he do that?”

“Saul? Why wouldn’t he?” Kyle had known many a top who thought it was beneath them to suck cock; apparently Javier never had that problem. “He’s really good, too.”

Hot damn! Did Saul suck cock the way he kissed, like he had all the time in the world to enjoy it? Kyle was so ready to experience that! “How good?”

“Like…” Javier chewed on his lower lip as he sought the right words. “Like mind numbing, toe curling, shake you apart and leave you begging for more, good.”

“Well now—” Kyle teased when he felt Saul’s smug smile against his nape. “—it’s not that I don’t trust your opinion, baby, but I should really judge that for myself.”

“Always best to experience these things first hand.” Javier nodded seriously. How was he to resist this pair, really?

“Are the two of you going to talk about it all morning or will there be actual tongue tagging soon?” Saul grumbled. “Not that this hasn’t been amusing, but one of you better make a move or I’m leaving you both here to suffer.”

“Suffer?” Kyle scoffed, “We’ll just fuck without you.”

Faster than he could think of why that challenge was such a bad idea, Saul flipped him onto his stomach and pinned him. With Javier squeaking and scurrying back, and Saul giving him his best early morning glare, Kyle could not find a single thing to regret in his statement. In fact, it was all he could do not to pat himself on the back and whoop out an enthusiastic Hell Yes!

“I would’ve thought a smart pup like you wouldn’t need this spelled out for him. My pups don’t fuck without me and back talk like that will make me impose further sanctions,” Saul warned.

Kyle really wanted to push his luck. If not for Javier watching them curiously, he would have aimed for the back talker of the year award.

The Protector -Poster2

Guest Post:

I’ve written several blog posts for this tour, one of which focuses on Saul, another on Kyle. Writing about Javier has been a challenge for me. He’s a broken man and will often refer to himself as less than sane. There are huge gaps in his memory, the memories so painful that his mind locked them away as a form of protection. He is easily spooked in foreign situations and relies heavily on Saul to keep him functioning.

At the same time he’d give anything to be different. Kyle sees this fairly quickly and likens Javier to a boy on the cusp of discovery. While he’s very much a man, one in his mid-twenties, this is a pretty accurate description. He’d give anything to be ‘normal’, whatever normal means. To be brave, to be self sufficient, to be a fully functioning partner in their triad relationship. To be more like the independent Kyle and to have Saul see him as strong.

It’s impossible to get from terrified to fixed in the span of one novel. Not convincingly and not without insulting the intelligence of my readers. I take artistic license with many things, but never this. You’ll see Javier come far in this book, spread his wings, pop his head out of his shell…because he’s trying. Because he’s reached the point where he’s ready to try. Some of that process was seen in the last book and more of the process will be seen in future books.

My men are a family, their lives intertwined, their stories connected. Javier is a big part of that family—the soft-hearted Mama bear of the house, the fragile brother of the group, the tender lover, the protected child. As we see the other’s stories evolve, you can bet we’ll be seeing him as a supporting cast member.

When I finished writing this book, I knew I would revisit this relationship again. As Javier grows and owns his part in the relationship, it will change all of them for the better. It would be an injustice to these three to call their story over, when in reality it’s only just begun.

My Review: 5/5 Stars

OMG this book was just so heartbreaking. You can feel the pain and love flowing off the pages.

No one should have to go through what all of these men have went through. The relationship between Saul, Javier, and Kyle was epic as Kyle would say. They worked together and knew what each other needed. I was happy that Saul was able to let go and be himself with Kyle and the way that Javier grew with the both of them.

I want more of the badassery. I hope, hope, hope the next story in the series is Chris’ or Liam’s, or all four of them.

Author Bio:

Jessie G Author

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With two published books and counting, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.

I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.

Excerpt:

Dammit to hell. I can’t even enjoy a movie.

The nighttime air bit at my skin as thoughts of him chomped at my brain. He’d polluted me like a poison that spread throughout my mind and body, seizing every thought, leaving no rest. I loved horror movies and yet I couldn’t recall a single scene. Jimmie kept glancing at me, concern etching his face all the way through the ninety-minute show.

Soon Jimmie and I walked out of the theater, my hand resting in the crook of his elbow. Bitterness raged inside, heating my face against the breeze when I saw the limo roll toward us. He found me like he always said he would, but three fucking hours late.

I knew I wasn’t Dorian’s top priority, and I’d made some progress at keeping my jealousy under control, but no woman wanted to be shoved to the side every time it was convenient for a man. I tightened my grip on Jimmie’s sleeve and pulled him along just as the driver stepped into our path. I gave the chauffeur a shotgun-glare as he motioned me to the car. “Miss Torrance, Mr. Lincoln is waiting.”

My heart skipped ten beats, I couldn’t tear my eyes away when the dark window lowered and Dorian tousled his ebony hair with his fingers. He wasn’t in his usual attire, a business suit. Tonight he presented himself in casual wear. His sharp, handsome features were expressionless.

I closed my eyes, digging deep for the strength to tell him to get lost for standing me up, but I knew the words would never make it past my lips. I was a fool to entertain the thought. One look from those black eyes sifted me like wheat. Dorian practically owned me. That man was my tempter and my savior wrapped into one.

I met him at the lowest point of my life, after my mother died of cancer. The three jobs I was working to keep my head above water and pay off her medical bills were about to do me in physically. While I was waiting tables at the country club, Dorian swooped in from out of nowhere and rescued me like an injured bird. His amazing sixth sense alerted him that life was too much for me, and he offered me a strong shoulder to cry on. The floodgates opened and I unloaded my personal problems. Dorian Lincoln promised those problems would disappear with a simple acceptance of his proposition: give him power over my body, something Bianca wouldn’t allow.

Lifting my palm to Jimmie’s cheek, I smiled. “Thanks for the movie. I’ll call you next week.”

“He’s a prick. You deserve better, Abby!” Jimmie yelled, as I eased myself inside the limo.

Dorian opened a small refrigerator under the seat, his hands cupping the base of a champagne glass. “You’ve wasted no time finding another way of entertaining yourself this evening.”

“You wasted no time in standing me up,” I scoffed.

When I left his office that afternoon, Dorian said he wanted me for some ‘quality time.’ Eight-thirty rolled around before I realized he was a no-show. The food got cold and eventually the long stemmed candles I lit for dinner burned out, along with my patience.

“Meetings…clients,” he said.

Top secret meetings and clients were always the excuse. The coldness in his voice was a sword to my heart, a reminder of my temporary ranking in his life. I held on tight to his promise of our relationship becoming more when the time was right.

His stony expression broke into a devious grin. “You look beautiful in that dress and your enthusiasm is charming. But watching you masturbate will reimburse me, Miss Torrance.”

My stomach dropped and quivered as I pressed my thighs together. He was going to punish me.

I tugged at the straps of the red shoes he’d bought me, eyeing him as he sipped from the flute and moved his gaze toward the window. Overtaken by the need to be the object of his fascination, I almost begged him to turn those onyx eyes back on me. His attention was the only thing that kept me from going under.

“Dorian, please I-”

My words were cut off with the sharp turn of his head. Relief came in a warm caress, but suspicion moved in with a lift of his brow. The small amount of light coming through the tinted windows deepened the masculine angles of his face, lending them a sternness that echoed in his voice.

“No other men. I thought I was quite clear about that when we discussed the terms of our agreement, three months ago.”

“Jimmie is just a friend.”

“Jimmie is a man. A distraction.”

“A distraction from being pissed. I don’t like being stood up.”

I sounded so offended, but I had no right. Closing my eyes I regrouped, reminding myself that I freely agreed to make myself available to him. Dorian kept up his end of the arrangement. He took care of me, changed my life for the better. My phone stopped ringing from creditors, he gave me a great job at his company, and I had food on the table in a fabulous apartment. He seemed to know my every need before I voiced them. I could push aside my hostility and take his punishment and occasional negligence.

“You are mine, all mine.” he announced.

His words, saturated with power and ownership, sustained my hungry heart. I could hold out as long as it took, accepting the way things had to be until Bianca was more emotionally stable, and Dorian could ask her for a divorce. I had waited longer on losers, lazy assholes who wouldn’t work in a pie factory. This time I had struck gold.

Reaching over, I grabbed the seat when Dorian impatiently knocked on the divider and the limo picked up speed.

Excerpt: 18+

I was awash with sensations. His mouth made love to my breasts. There was no other way to describe it. He licked and sucked and nipped until I could feel my pulse pounding in my sex. It was driving me wild.

When he finally closed his mouth over one of my nipples, I gasped. Each tug sent ribbons of fire coursing through my body straight to my wet, needy core. He switched to the other and used his fingers to roll the wet nipple back and forth, exerting just enough pressure to make me start panting.

My back arched up, thrusting my breasts closer to his luxurious mouth. He nipped and pulled at the other nipple, not giving a second of reprieve. I pushed my head back and fisted handfuls of the satiny comforter, biting back a groan. I couldn’t remember the last time I was this turned on.

Warmth flooded across every inch of my skin. Full-on body blush.

He shifted so that his shaft nudged at my mound while his mouth delved up and down the lines of my throat. “Look at me.” The command rumbled from deep in his chest.

I couldn’t deny him and I opened my eyes again just as he captured my mouth, plunging his tongue deep. He leaned to the side, resting on an elbow and sliding one palm beneath my head. His grip on my skull was firm and he used the leverage to kiss even harder.

His other hand slid down the left side of my body, sending shivers of exhilaration straight to my nerve endings. I rolled my shoulders, wiggling my arms free, and wrapped my hands around his bulging ones, giving myself a little bit of leverage to push back into his all-consuming kiss, wanting to give back as much as he was giving me.

My Review: 4.5/5 Stars

Bailey Ross is on the run from an abusive ex and a djinn. While on the move she meets a vampire and Protector of the town Sanctuary, Erik Thorson. If she doesn’t go with Erik where he can protect her, she might not live to see morning.

This story is told in Bailey’s point of view, though the last chapter is in Erik’s. I wish it would have switched back and forth though. Bailey Is a strong woman surviving what her ex did to her. She didn’t let it slow her down. Though she has her moments where something triggers her back to the past, but she didn’t let it cripple her.

The town of Sanctuary is one filled with paranormals. They have Protectors in place so that they protect the town for anyone who wants to do them harm. As Bailey learns more about Erik and the town she is intrigued. She want’s to stay, but she fears she will bring harm to them.

I liked how the story flowed together and everybody worked together to keep the town and Bailey safe. Once Bailey learned of her destiny I didn’t like how they tried to push it n her though. It sort of felt high handed to me. I know they needed her, but at least give her time to get used to it. Other than that, all the characters were very likeable.

I can’t wait to read about the twin dragon brothers, Miles and Erik. OMG!
