Charismatic and powerful Lyceum Wolves' Alpha, Tristan Livingston, is out for revenge after a devastating attack on his pack. Not only did he survive a building collapse, he orchestrated the rebuild of his chic, state-of-the-art nightclub within a week. Determined to mete out justice, he rescues a beautiful witness who may be the key to helping him find the perpetrators.

Dr. Kalli Williams, dedicated veterinarian, is hiding a secret that endangers not only her own life but the lives of wolves across the country. After being tortured by a savage vampire, she's reluctantly agrees to help the sexy Alpha in his quest to identify suspects; ones who'd kill her on the spot if they knew she existed. As Kalli places herself in the hands of the dominant wolf, she soon finds she wants nothing more than to submit.

Tristan, committed to ruling his pack as a lone wolf, is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious and enticing woman, who seems more than human, but not quite supernatural. As he discovers her secret, he teaches her the meaning of trust, helping her learn how to be true to her nature. After living a lifetime alone, will he succumb to the visceral need to claim her, acknowledging the soul binding connection between an Alpha and his mate? And will he prevail against the menacing enemy who threatens to destroy Lyceum Wolves?

*Note: This book contains several erotic love scenes, including m/f/m menage, and is intended for adult readers only.

Sexy shifter read with a dash of mystery.

I've been reading a lot of shifter stories lately and this one has really stood out amongst the crowd. You get a great story, with a wonderful relationship build, and fantastic plot. Of, course, there's the insta-attraction (You know how those wolves get when they find their mates)  But the physical aspect of the relationship works it's way up at a believable pace. Kalli's a strong character with a terrible past that does sneak in from time to time and weaken her a bit. But once again, this is believable. You can't expect someone with years of abuse to not have some emotional issues. Tristan is an Alpha, with a capital A. Strong, smart, sexy, dependable; pretty much all the makings of sex on a stick ;)  Together they make a wonderful pair.

The only things that turned me off a bit, was a menage scene between Kalli, Tristan and his Beta. It was explained that after Kalli's first shift she would be extremely hot (if you get my drift) and it would take more than just a little lovin' to satisfy her need. While I don't have a problem with menages, I just found it to be a little off kilter with the Tristan's alpha ways throughout the rest of the book. Heck,  Tristan growled at his Beta, near the beginning, when all he did was touch her shoulder!

I highly recommend this one for Shifter lovers looking for something sexy packed with an emotional punch.

Sexy vampire, Luca Macquarie doesn’t do love; especially not with humans. Yet, ever since he rescued Samantha Irving, he can’t deny the enigmatic attraction he’s developed for the alluring mortal woman. Concerned for her safety, he’s determined to bring Samantha back to her coven. His mission is to go find the novice witch and bring her home, nothing more, nothing less; falling for her is not supposed to be part of the plan.

Samantha doesn’t want to be a witch, yet that’s exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha’s worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.

In the Big Easy, Samantha and Luca embark on a spellbinding journey, searching for a mystical amulet that promises to release her obligation from an ancient, lethal vampire who’s been threatening her life. With cryptic clues and clandestine allies, will Luca and Samantha destroy the dangerous amulet before others acquire it, setting forth a chain of catastrophic consequences? And will Luca give into his erotic desire for the witch who magically captures heart?
