The original story "The Captive" led to a novel, and three additional volumes followed. With this collection you are finally holding all four Betania Breed single SciFi romance novels, complete and unabridged, in your hands – and mysterious background material is included. In over 800 pages, you will be up close and personal on an adventurous and dramatic voyage through the universe.

The Boxed Set includes the Betania Breed Series Volumes I-IV:

The Captive
Betania Breed Book One

I am one of the few people who hasn’t given up the fight against the Sethari yet. I would rather die than surrender to the aliens who have enslaved us humans for more than one hundred years. Then the unthinkable happens: I am awarded to the leader of the aliens, so I can bear him healthy, viable children. I am prepared for anything, except this one thing – that this merciless warrior, with his strange eyes and scaly skin, would awaken feelings in me...

The Prey
Betania Breed Book Two

Johar is the most merciless and successful bounty hunter there is. His reputation is legendary, for he has never let any prey slip through his fingers. His creator’s beautiful daughter hates Johar and lets him feel it every waking minute. But Johar knows something about her that nobody else knows. Not even she herself... The book takes place a few months after the events of book 1.

The Human
Betania Breed Book Three

Talon Delkhari was the mightiest warlord of his people, until he dared to contradict his king. Instead of granting him an honorable death in the fight against their enemies, the king made him his chamberlain instead. His newest conquest is from Earth. He won her in a poker game, and Talon is supposed to deliver her safely to his bed. An easy assignment for someone like Talon. That’s what heI thought, anyway, until this human woman awakens the predator lurking under his skin… The book takes place a few years after the events of book 2.

The Dragon
Betania Breed Book Four

The fourth volume takes place shortly after the events in book 3. Coran Burke is an elite undercover agent from Earth. The tough and emotionless fighter has never failed. His new mission leads him to Dassuria where he is pursuing a dangerous dragon lord. At the center of his investigation is a woman who has a lot to hide - but despite her entanglement with the dragon lord, Coran can’t get her out of his head...

I was given this book as an ARC.

But – Oh Dear!

I read up to Part 3: The Awakening in Hope, but really, this whole muscles and pheromones and falling in ‘love ‘ aka lust at first sight? Just too predictable.

I thought the writing style rather prosaic and not in any way different from 100s of other such alien abduction style books.

The heroine could have been acceptable but she was rather 2 dimensional and finding out after several ‘chapters’ that we were somewhere in Ad 3900 was just too late.

Who is the craziest here?






Crazy Ella Book Cover




Crazy Ella




Crazy Ella in Love





Eve Langlais





ghosts, witches, vampires, paranormal




CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 2 edition




(8 Oct. 2013)



Ella’s always heard voices and because of them, she ends up institutionalized at a young age. Everyone calls her crazy and she believes she is too until the night she meets a vampire and for the first time in her life, the voices shut up. Zane just wants to enjoy his usual blood buffet, instead he runs into a wisp of a woman who makes him feel emotions he thought long dead. Rescuing her from the insane asylum, he brings her home, determined to seduce and feed from her, a plan that is foiled by ghostly voices determined to keep Ella untouched. But not even poltergeists can stand in the way of a vampire in love.

This is a fun read in the best style of Eve Langlais, where she takes a story trope – the falsely imprisoned female – and gives it a twist. The females are usually full of vim and vigour and Ella is not different. Despite her long time in the Asylum, she has learnt ways to circumvent the worst aspects.

She is fun, although I am not sure about  the explanations about her voices. This is – so far anyway – a short series of just 2 books and this is book 1. No doubt I will read book 2 in due course, but I was not immediately inspired to do so.

Which Asylum is suitable?








Crazy Ella




Vampire Love





Eve Langlais





paranormal, mythology, romance




CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 2 edition




(8 Oct. 2013



Put in an asylum by her parents at age 7,  because she hears voices, Ella is broken out by a Vampire.  But she isn’t really mad, and the voices can manifest as poltergeists when Ella is threatened. turns out all is not as it seems.

An enjoyable foray into the world of vampires, ghosts and ghouls.. and really Eve, your view of what happens in an asylum is really nasty!

Eve Langlais always writes an enjoyable fantasy which moves along at a good pace and with nice touches of humour.

Using Magic in the PI business






Witch is When it all Began Book Cover




Witch is When it all Began




A Witch P.I. Mystery #1





Adele Abbott





Crime, Thriller & Mystery, PI, Witchcraft, Humour

What would you do if you discovered you were a witch?

That's exactly what happens to Private investigator, Jill Gooder. And as if that wasn't enough, she has a serial killer to catch. More magic, mystery and laughs than you can shake a stick at.

This is crime cozy when Jill finds out, rather late in life, that she is actually a witch. Her magic had been blocked at birth and thus she had never known her family, even her real mother, yet alone the magic town – just over the horizon and in another dimension, in which they all lived.

A nice story.

And there is a rather nice cop involved with her in her human PI life.

Luther Cross here. Dangerously handsome, effortlessly stylish half-demon, at your service. As I have inherited certain...abilities with my odd genetics, I’ve put them to use as Chicago’s foremost paranormal investigator.

My current case? Well, I have to admit, it feels a little personal. I’m helping a mysterious girl who’s turned up on my doorstep, pregnant through mystic means. I can’t help but think of my own mother…and if I don’t help her, she’ll face the same fate.

Turns out, someone is trying to create an army of half-demons. While it might be a pleasant change to hang out with my own kind, I know most half-demons don’t have my sense of morality. If I don’t stop this evil plan, the armistice between Heaven and Hell will be broken and all of the Earth will pay… It will be the beginning of the end.

Well, a PI with a difference… especially as he is half-demon and his lover is a vampire… who knew? And yes, Holy Water, blessed by a priest does harm demons and nasties..

My first introduction to this series and I started with the first book and found it a fun read with some nice snark and a different type of PI considering I have just read Mary Wiles #1 where we have an angel doing a similar job.

I like the style and pace of this this writer and found him clear and good at ensuring we knew enough back story without over-whelming us so we understood what was going on. Loved the idea of there being roof-top bars that we humans don’t get entry to. Unless…

And nice for it to set in Chicago for a change. I’ve always heard rumours that Chicago is a dangerous place to visit. And with all these paranormals living there, I now know why!
