DANTE

I’m a trained assassin. Enlisted by the Fae Corps and instructed to kill, there is no place in my life for a fated mate.

Then Gia crashes into my life.

Flashing eyes,

luscious lips that beg to be kissed.

One whiff of her sugary scent and I know she is MINE.

But she’s human, and no way can she withstand the mating practices of the Fae.

I am too lethal,

I should stay away.

When she takes the hit meant for my target, I cannot let her die.

So I do the only thing that will save her life…

I form a soul-bond with the unconscious human.

I want to make her bend to my will.

Gia is MINE

The Hero: Dante – a Fae and an assassin. He has a mission to assassinate the new leader of Moscow and bring about the future his people mapped out for the upcoming generations of Fae.

The heroine(s): Gia – human and the bodyguard to Amara, the Fae female who is taking over as leader of Moscow who is about to take “the pledge” to the people. The leader has renounced ties to her own clan for their callous ways.

The Story: Gia and Dante meet in bar on the eve of the most important day of both of their lives. They have a romantic encounter in the restroom of the bar. Both of them have plans and know that they have to take care of business, but neither want to leave the other and sense a connection between each other.

Gia realizes that being with Dante is futile. He is the threat that she is fighting against. Though when she is injured by Dante, he takes a decision out of her hands when he has to mate with her in order to save her life. The intimate scenes were sizzling hot, but for me there were too many. I would have liked more of a story.

The narration was great. The book was written in dual POV and had dual narration which I like. It was done by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. Wen has a clear and intelligent sounding voice which worked for Gia since she is a bodyguard and Kai Kennicott has a deep sexy voice and when he reads the female lines, it doesn’t grate on my nerves like some male narrators.

Overall I liked the story and I plan to listen to more of this series. I like the Fae in this one. They have a great package, fun powers, and they aren’t the standard Legolas-like Fae with long blonde hair and pointy ears. They are alpha’s with vampire teeth and they do have pointy ears, but only when aroused.

Property of the Fae

Odd Love!

The Hero: Tristan – he is with the Fae Corps and is partnered with Jess to track down the Fae resistance.

The heroine(s): Jess – best friend to Gia from Stolen by the Fae. Jess is a dragon shifter and is tasked by the Bureau of Shifters to see if the Fae and Shifters can work together

The Story: The Fae and the Bureau of Shifters have agreed to peace and have put Jess and Tristan together to track down the rest of the Fae that think their race is superior to all the others and should rule over all other races.

The Fae in the Fae corps all have very strong Fae powers and are the only Fae that can teleport. Tristan considers himself an Alpha-hole and makes no bones about how much he wants Jess. Jess has issues from her childhood which affected her greatly. Though Tristan also has secrets he has never told anyone.

Like Stolen by the Fae, this book was told in dual POV and has dual narration and like that book this was narrated by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. I hadn’t heard these two narrators before the first book, but really liked them. They sounded a bit different in this book, but I enjoyed it just as much.

I like when the Hero uses a nickname or terms of endearment, but Tristan called Jess “Fire” and she is a dragon. A bit too spot on for my tastes. I didn’t like this one as much as the first book. The relationship between these two was very weird. Tristan is very dominant and wants Jess as a submissive. She fights against wanting that as well though she does want it and then when he makes her mad, she jumps him over and over in some weird mating ritual before she burns him with her fire.

There were parts of this that were completely unbelievable. Jess has children and keeps thinking about them and about telling Tristan about them. At one point she is worried they are in danger and she knows she has to go to them. Though she has plenty of time to have a few intimate encounters with Tristan. Priorities, right?

Seduced by the Fae

Can attraction make people stupid?

The Hero: Doc (a.k.a. Nolan) – a doctor and a member of the Fae Corps. He is a Fae with dragon shifter blood mixed in. He thrives on dominance and has wanted Alice for a long time. Though he has balked at the thought of mating and teased the other members of the Fae Corps that have recently mated.

The heroine(s): Alice – A human nurse adopted by the Fae. Doc has allowed her to help him in his work. She has had feelings for Doc for quite a while. She has been kidnapped and used as bait by the resistance to trap the alpha’s of the Fae Corps.

The Story: Doc knows that chemistry exists between him and Alice. But he a standard Alpha-hole Fae and pushes her away even as he knows he can’t stand the thought of any other male touching Alice. He comes to her rescue after she is kidnapped.

Like the first two books, this was narrated by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. They do a great job and I really like Kai’s deep voice. This book was dual POV and I liked the story and the romance better than Property of the Fae. Though like that book, the priorities these characters have leaves something to be desired.

Alice is used as bait in a trap and when Doc comes to rescue her, they know it is a trap. However, instead of leaving and bringing back more members of the Fae Corps, Doc and Alice keep talking and things even start to get a bit erotic. Even when they hear footsteps nearby, they don’t do anything.

Also I am not quite sure why all of the Alpha Fae with hot powers have to be damaged. This isn’t the first book in the series where the Hero had been raped as a child. I hate that. I think that a man can like BDSM and also be a commitment phobe without being damaged as a child.

So Doc is a sadist but doesn’t like rules or safe words. Alice is so in love with him that she agrees. He asks her to trust him, which sounds right, but how can someone agree to that? The master in that relationship wouldn’t be the one feeling the pain, so what if he doesn’t know when to stop. What if she feels more pain than he expects? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. Though when he told Alice what he would do to her he made it sound pretty sexy I will have to admit.

This book has a lot of sizzling hot and super steamy intimate scenes. I liked the smutty scenes despite what I said above. Every now and then you just get into the smut in a romance like this one and this one just did it for me. There was definitely more romance and smut than there was story, but for that type of book, it hit the spot.

Knotted by the Fae

The Hero: Gabriel – He is Alice’s half brother and was introduced in Seduced by the Fae as a slave trader for the virgin auctions. When Alice knew him he was a loving brother, but when she met him again he was something different. Someone that Boris (the villain in the first three books) feared. It turned out he is Fae and Vampire.

The heroine(s): Lily – a human woman who was adopted by a Fae family. She is only 18 and best friends with Charley, the adopted daughter of Jess from Property of the Fae. She has been attracted to Gabriel since she first met him in Alice’s hospital room.

The Story: Gabriel was visiting with Dante, the leader of the Fae Corps to try to get them to help him in his vendetta against the Vampires, and his quest to kill all the flesh traders who were responsible for the death of his mother and his being sold as a slave. When Dante says they won’t help him, he takes Lily and runs.

I liked the premise of this one and though all the men in this series so far have been dominant alpha fae males, Gabriel seems bigger and badder and more of an unknown quantity since he isn’t in the Fae Corps like the rest of the guys so far. I also kinda like the captive romance trope.

After stealing Lily, Gabriel is forced to turn her in order to save her life. The transformation takes time and is extremely hot. Like the rest of this series the narration was dual POV/dual narration by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Kidnapped by the Fae

The Hero: Hawke – He is an alpha in the Fae Corps and has been watching Charley for two years. Though he thinks he is too old for her even though she finally turned 18. He has been following her for the last two months since she left the Fae Corps stronghold in Singapore.

The heroine(s): Charley – She is the sister of Jess and she has had a crush on Hawke for years, and she knows how he has been watching her. But she is intent on losing her virginity whether with Hawke or someone else.

The Story: Hawke kidnaps Charley in order to save her from herself. Especially since the Fae Corps have united with Gabriel and Raphael to take down the Vampire – Viking alliance and the virgin auctions that they have been holding for years.

I have to admit all five books of this series are basically the same story told again and again. They contain dominant alpha-hole Heroes, damaged main characters, violent alpha Fae matings, and many even have the same or similar wording. I think that in nearly every book there was a point or two where someone said something along the lines of “all the pores on my skin popped” and I remember thinking every time, what the heck does that mean? And the word “turgid” was used far too often.

Each of the books, had a Hero who wants his heroine more than anything and gets all alpha possessive, but still doesn’t want to be tied down or has reasons he thinks he can’t be with the heroine long term. In this case he is fifteen years older than her and thinks he is too old for her and would be too rough for her.

The narration was great and I did like the romance between Charley and Hawke. Charley was spunky and turned the tables on Hawke more than once.
