He's dark and brooding, sexy even, but when Sydney falls into his line of site little does he know this simple human will change his life forever.. Sydney is an agent in Pennsylvania. She loves her job and she's damn good at it too. Her life hasn't always been so great but she's learned to take care of herself and has worked dang hard to be who she is now.

Book Description:

An erotic paranormal romance...

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?



Review of Book two Luca's Magic Embrace... 


Luca & Samantha
Luca is Kade's second in command. He's in charge of all security. Luca is smart and handsome but seriously closed off. He had a love once andshe was violently taken from him before he was changed. Never opening up himself to love again Luca threw himself in his work. He's the best at what he does and Kade trusts him withy his life and the life of his loved ones. Samantha is a techy.. Being one of the only females in her position she's had to prove her worth more times than one.. On a trip to New Orleans with some friends she goes out to a club and ends up in a situation no one ever wants to find themselves in. Being the strong woman she is she's not going to let her captures break her. She's been beaten and belittled and even lost part of her memory.. That's the good part. She doesn't want to remember the disgusting and vile things she was made to do. Luca rescued her from all that. From the moment they touched a strong connection was felt between them but of course, being the closed off person Luca is, he fought the feeling the entire time. Plus, Samantha is human. That was so not going to happen in Luca's eyes. I loved Samantha. She pushed her way through all the crap that happened to her and she came out swinging. She's definitely my favorite of this series and Luca. Who doesn't want to win he heart of the man who's struggled all those years to hide it?

An erotic paranormal romance…

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?


Review of Book Three Tristan's Lyceum Wolves... 


What can I say about Tristan and his wolves but they are very very animalistic and so true to their nature. This book was the most graphic and dare I say risqué sexually of all the books. I think so anyway and I'm not going into any detail. This is one you truly need to read for yourself. 

Tristan

Tristan is Alpha of his pack in Pennsylvania. Like Luca, he was a loner and very happy that way. He never got attached to anyone and was happy without a mate all though seeing how happy Kade and Luca were made his heart twitch a bit. Tristan and Logan grew up as pups together and did everything together and I do mean EVERYTHING. Boy did those wolves get me a little um.. Let's just say I fanned myself a lot reading this book. Lol Logan was Tristan's Beta and they could pretty much know exactly how and what the other was thinking. Wolf packs were like that but it helped that the two were already so close.

Young Tristan & Logan
Kalli is another strong female in this series. Loosing both her parents at a young age, running away from her family to put herself through school, and becoming a veterinarian. She did a lot for herself and she struggled to forget her haunted past but was always afraid it would catch up with her. I liked how she wasn't afraid to role with the punches. She was kidnapped by the most horrid female vampire and fed on till her blood ran dry and she still had enough sense to try and get away. 

Tristan, Logan & Samantha
Like the other males in this series Tristan fought his attraction to Kalli but not as strongly. Being wolf he was very sexual and Kalli was a very sexy woman but she was a threat to their pack and until they were certain she wasn't the one who had helped kill a wolf from Tristan's brother Marcel's pack he had to control his urges. Another great story and like I said before this one was the hottest book of them all...

Succumbing to desire, she learns to trust her Alpha, discovering what it means to be wolf.

Passion and mystery on the bayou stirs Logan’s wolf, demanding he claim his mate. Yet Wynter’s a distraction he can’t afford when his priority is to lead his new pack.

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




Review of Book Four Logan's Acadian Wolves... 


This is the last book in the series but certainly not the least. We already know about Logan
and his hottie ways. He's alpha now and the way he got the title was not how he wanted it. Shoot, he didn't even want to be alpha and already half his pack is fighting him for the position. Being the strong wolf he is there's no way anyone can beat him but he's had enough. His mental strength has been tested and he hasn't even had the time to mourn the loss of his friend, his brother. Then comes Wynter. Will this smart young beautiful wolf convert the lost soul that is Logan, Can he be the alpha his new pack needs, and will he have a mate by his side or will he lose everything. 



This series in its entirety is something I seriously suggest
reading if you love sexy reads with a whole lot of action. They were all very tantalizing but at the same time had me freaked out and on the edge of my seat. Take some time out to relax, have a glass of wine or a cup of hot coffee, find yourself a nice cozy seat and read each book. Don't stop because I sure couldn't. I could not get enough of each of these sexy men and thank you Kym for making their women out to be tough and not sissy little girls. Each woman could stand on her own if need be but at the same time could fight along side her alpha man. I'm so glad I was given these books to read. My heart is still pounding fast.


Overall Rating:  5 Sinfully Delicious Kisses!!!
