Detective Sergeant Catherine Bishop has an enigmatic new boss, Detective Inspector Jonathan Knight. How he will adapt to life in Lincolnshire after years in the Met is anyone's guess. When the body of a well known local thug is discovered, an intriguing message found on his battered corpse raises unwelcome questions. Is DS Bishop herself being accused of the grisly murder, or does the message point to a more sinister secret? As the body count grows higher, Bishop and Knight find themselves in a race against time to discover the identity of a merciless, faceless killer whose motivation is a mystery.

Great reading as a police procedural demonstrating just how difficult it can be to solve murders that initially seem random, or where the link is buried deep in the past.

By the final chapter I had guessed who the murderer was though.

**Warning, this book contains scenes of dead people having sex, only really sexy dead people, not zombies or sparkly vampires. Rest assured, no body parts fell off during the making of these sex scenes, just bras and undies, and no fangs or hammers were used during foreplay.** What could be worse than getting tricked by a demon and sucked into the fiery pit of doom? Discovering that the demon who captured your soul is also the devastatingly sexy twin of the man who still has your heart. The only fate worse than eternal damnation is eternal temptation. Someone please get me some water. It’s getting hot in here.

 

Twin hot alphas – how do you choose between them? And can you resist the other twin when you have chosen? Turns out to be trickier than you might think when you are in Hell drinking the ‘horny’ water.

Hell has 13 levels and each is nastier than the last but you can make a living if you are strong enough but try not to become a blood slave of the major demons…

Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past. For the last seven years she’s been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she’s received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear. Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He’s a man who can get you anything you want … at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects. But for one of his clients, he’s never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it’s just a chaste kiss—a single bead’s worth—and a promise for more. For the Bargainer, it’s more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that’s been awoken. If the Bargainer has any hope to save his people, he’ll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. Only, his foe has a taste for exotic creatures, and Callie just happens to be one

I just kept reading!

At first I thought there were only 2 books and then I found a third and this was flagged as the final instalment. But I wanted more and sure enough a 4th is now due. I can’t wait.

Great fantasy series with a Fae granting wishes and favours rather than the devil and he is not after souls. Rather he wants favours in return that are hard to grant and often dangerous.

Turns out to be a grand romance series too. With a love that is waited for over many centuries.

Beautiful book covers too…

SciFi Wolves!

The Wolves of Fenrir Book Cover The Wolves of Fenrir
Box set #1-#4
Sela Carsen

(14 Mar. 2017)

By the year 2225, humans have come a long way. Broadening Earth’s frontiers into the galaxy means taking a crash course in inter-alien relations, and humans are – mostly – embracing their new allies.
The Fenrir are Viking descendants of the Great Wolf of Norse myth – heroes and heroines from across the galaxy who have returned to Earth to help keep our planet safe.
A physicist and an assassin, a spy and a mechanic, an old soldier and a weaver, a general and an interpreter – fall in love and run into danger with all of them as they face down an enemy threat that could plunge the Earth back into a war to end everything.

A Wolf to Watch Over Me
Lauren Ivers should be home, reading and eating take-out. Or in her lab, working on new ideas in post-quantum theory. Instead, she’s on the run with the bodyguard she didn’t know she had in a desperate bid to get off-planet before she becomes a casualty in an intergalactic war. She’s sure it’s just the adrenaline that has her reacting to her oversized protector with smart-mouthed replies and a full-bodied zing she wills herself to ignore.
Hakon sidUlfr, a wolf-shifter from another world, and Lauren’s covert bodyguard, is determined to keep her safe from the Axis aliens hunting her. Not because she’s a duty, but because there’s something about her that calls to all his primitive and protective instincts. It’s a distraction he can’t afford as he works to sneak a single, small human across unfamiliar terrain.
When Hakon is injured, Lauren realizes that while he was protecting her body, she should have been protecting her heart.

A Most Wanted Wolf
You can’t trust a spy. That’s the nature of their job. As a warrior, Ule tärEinar prefers direct action to sneaking around. Yet when she meets Andrew Wyatt, she can’t deny that sparks fly.
Andrew’s assignment is to steal back the human scientist who was about to become a Fenrir mate. He doesn’t count on the woman who meets him eye to eye, challenging everything he ever knew about alien relations.
As the cold war between their two cultures heats up, Ule is going to have to learn how to trust the man who could destroy her world with just one lie.

Silver Wolf Rising
Dagny tärEinar is on her way to Earth to start her new life. Not that she knows what that’ll be like – a long-time widow with grown children, she hardly knows who she is anymore.
Being forced into retirement is turning him bitter. Niall sidKalvr knows it, but he can’t help it, either. He’s ending his long career in the Fenrir Army to become a farmer, of all things.
Neither of them expect to be saviors, the leaders of a small rebellion. But when enemy soldiers invade their pack ship, Niall and Dagny are forced to work together to protect and care for their shipmates and themselves, despite the distracting life-scent trying to draw them together. A scent that indicates they’re meant to be together for the rest of their lives. However long – or short – that may be.

The Wolf Who Came In From the Cold
Rig sidUlfr wants peace on Earth.
Literally.
As the general in command of the Fenrir troops on Earth, his mission is to maintain the security of the planet in the aftermath of an intergalactic war. And if alien Axis terrorists would quit putting his new, distractingly attractive interpreter in the line of fire, that would be great.
Mirea Randolph may speak half a dozen languages, but words won't be enough to keep her and Rig safe. It seems like every time she gets her red lipstick on him, another attack occurs. With constant attempts to derail the fragile peace process, she ends up involved in layers of deception she won't be able to talk her way out of in any language.
Their attraction burns laser hot as they work to keep Earth safe from a new wave of enemy invasions. But once the job is done, will Rig have to go back into the cold alone, or will Mirea keep him warm?

All of these stories have been previously published and are also available as single titles.

 

In the far future we encounter Fenrir’s Wolves living on another planet – and helping Earth against their enemies.

Note that all the Wolves (Male/Female) are warriors.

A rather different version of what happened to Fenrir and his wife and the future….

A nice set of stories.

Starcrossed Dragons #1

One woman. Three men. All Dragons. What could go wrong? Maya Rose has a problem. She's the last in her line of dragon shifters, and if she doesn't produce an heir soon, it could be disastrous for her kingdom. In order to remedy this, her father, the king, has gathered the greatest heroes from across the lands, and set them on a quest to not only save the kingdom, but to win Maya's love. Should they succeed, they will become her husband and rule by her side. Should they fail to win her love, death is the only answer. But with so many dashing men willing to do anything to win her hand, how is a girl to choose? Then again, no one ever said she had to pick just one. After all, the fate of the realm is at stake, and maybe this time, more is merrier. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is NOT a love triangle, what you'll find inside is a reverse harem featuring hot sex, adult themes, dragons, cool weapons, action, adventure, a wise-cracking heroine, and much, MUCH more.

Who knew that computer nerds base their game scenarios n real life universes? Well, clearly the programmers. Like Maya, who is a dragon shifter in her own universe and a game progammer in ours.

There were the usual minor proof reading errors.
I only mention this as Erin’s books tend to have more than most.  I find errors in nearly all books I read even if it just the usual swapping of words for similar spellings like stationary for stationery.  Or the one that my phone annoyed me with this morning. I wrote chesty and it changed it to cherry!

I had one query. When Maya’s – and the other dragons’ wings appear, what happens to their clothes? where are the wings attached to their bodies? some writers give their shifters a magic so that clothes appear and disappear when they shift, but this wasn’t mentioned.

Still nice story and reverse harems are all the rage it seems!
