I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets…

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

Karen Marie Moning – Darkfever

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Series: Fever, #1
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

“My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I’m a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly.

My philosophy is pretty simple – any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there’s not a sidhe-seer alive who’s had a good day since then.”

When MacKayla’s sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death, a cryptic message on Mac’s cel phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master a power she had no idea she possessed – a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysteriou Jericho…while at the same time, the ruthless V’lane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: to find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book – because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control both worlds in their hands.

Lisa Henry & Heidi Belleau – Bliss (Review & Excerpt)

Bliss by Lisa Henry & Heidi Belleau

Source: Review by Request
Publisher Provided Copy
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

They’re always happy.

Rory James has worked hard all his life to become a citizen of the idyllic city-state of Beulah. Like every other kid born in the neighboring country of Tophet, he’s heard the stories: No crime or pollution. A house and food for everyone. It’s perfect, and Rory is finally getting a piece of it.

So is Tate Patterson. He’s from Tophet, too, but he’s not a legal immigrant; he snuck in as a thief. A city without crime seems like an easy score, until he crashes into Rory during a getaway and is arrested for assaulting a citizen. Instead of jail, Tate is enrolled in Beulah’s Rehabilitation through Restitution program. By living with and serving his victim for seven years, Tate will learn the human face of his crimes.

If it seems too good to be true, that’s because it is. Tate is fitted with a behavior-modifying chip that leaves him unable to disobey orders—any orders, no matter how dehumanizing. Worse, the chip prevents him from telling Rory, the one man in all of Beulah who might care about him, the truth: in a country without prisons, Tate is locked inside his own mind.

Shay Savage – Transcendence

Transcendence by Shay Savage

Source: Personal Library
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?

Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from; she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.

Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive, but beautiful, man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle.

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.

Allyson James – Calder

Calder by Allyson James

Series: Tales of the Shareem #4
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Medic Katarina d’Arnal moves to the slums to work in a free clinic and ends up drawing the job of inoculating Shareem. The first Shareem who shows up is the Calder, a level three, muffled from head to foot, refusing to bare even an inch of skin. He’s used to an elderly medic who jabs him and lets him go, not the pretty, young highborn woman who wants to do everything by the book.

Calder hides himself because, unlike the rest of the Shareem—the handsome, arrogant, a-holes—Calder is scarred all over, the result of a plasma fire years ago. He’s learned that women crave to be with him, as hideous as he is, and he’s created a world where they can indulge in their darkest fantasies with the Beast. He give them an exotic experience with a capital E.

But this woman, Katarina, looks at Calder the man, and wants to know all about him. Calder decides to show her what he is when she’s tricked into visiting his lair—but Katarina keeps insisting on touching his burned face with her gentle fingers, trying to find the man behind the tormented Beast.

Calder knows if he lets her in to what he truly is, it will be the end of him……

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_half

Nothing satisfies quite like a mysterious tortured hero…

“This is Calder, sweetheart,” Braden said. “One of the best level threes ever made. Means he’s gentle as a kitten one minute, dangerous as a desert tiger the next. You never know what he’s going to do.”
But that made him more exciting.

Calder was a wonderfully crafted character. The author had set up his mysterious and foreboding persona in the the previous books. He was more intriguing than any other Shareem by the time we got to his book.

CALDER
a.k.a The Beast: Level Three Shareem

Braden on Calder:

“…Forget about Calder, sweetheart. He’s . . . Put it this way—when he got burned he went to a bad place, and I don’t mean the DNAmo lab. He never really recovered. There’s a darkness to him that a pretty lady like you doesn’t need to touch. He’s taken level three to a height even I don’t understand. And I’m pretty bad-ass.”

We knew that Calder was disfigured by a fire when he was being experimented on at DNAmo. We also know that Dr. Laas saved him, but that he had not mentally recovered from the incident. He covered himself head to toe in black robes and goggles, allowing no one to see his mangled skin.

This aversion to nudity does not serve him well when he checks into the clinic for his required inoculations. The pretty little doctor working at the slum clinic insists that he disrobe for a full exam. Naturally, Calder refuses. He rips the hypo from her hand, inoculates himself, then storms out of the clinic leaving a baffled Dr. Katarina d’Arnal behind.

KATARINA
a.k.a. Dr. Katarina d’Arnal

She suddenly understood the complete appeal of Shareem, why women would pay fortunes for an appointment with Calder.
Shareem would do anything in the name of pleasure. And there was a hint of uncertainty about how far they would go.

Calder has a gimmick to cope with his disfigurement, he has created a pleasure palace where he hunts his prey in the dark. He capitalizes on wealthy women’s captive fantasies, and makes a ton of money doing it. There’s a waiting list a mile long to get in. And once you’re in Calder’s lair there’s no safe word, no mercy… He will hunt you, he will find you, and you’ll learn what it is like to be with the BEAST.


As I said, the wait-list to be hunted by the BEAST is a mile long, but meddling Dr. Angelica Laas (who we’ve known from previous books) decides to play match-maker. She hack’s Calder’s database and inserts a listing for little miss Katarina. She then sends a transmission to the clinic Dr. d’Arnal works at and informs them that someone is in need of medical attention at Calder’s address. You see where this is going?

Once Katarina realizes that she’s been set up in this erotic situation with the Shareem she has been dreaming about, she willingly submits herself to the dark and to the desires of the BEAST…


**sigh**
I’ve got mixed feelings with this one folks. A few things bothered me about this installment in the Tales of the Shareem Series:

Insta-Love has been a near constant in this series, and I’ve been more-or-less cool with it. The heroines always seem to fall in love very quickly with their Shareem, but for some reason, Katarina seemed to fall extra hard, extra fast…


Maybe I feel this way because because I loved the connection between Ky & Aiden in the last book? Their connection grew over twenty years, so the love seemed more real/deep to me?

In addition, Calder’s mood swings kind of drove me nuts. One second he was so sure that he wanted Katarina, the next he was running away and hiding in his lair for weeks. There’s a difference between “broken” and “childish”.

That being said, once the emotion started pouring honestly from both main characters, the book became immensely enjoyable! Calder and Katarina were a little awkward in the beginning, but once all the petty behavior was set aside, and the real conflicts began to occur… Wow.

Allyson James – Aiden and Ky

Aiden and Ky by Allyson James

Series: Tales of the Shareem #3
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brianne, a woman of the ruling family, has never seen a Shareem, until she spies Aiden, a level one, in a coffee bar in the working-class part of town. Unknown to Brianne, her bodyguards arrest Aiden for even looking at her, and Aiden is locked away, scheduled to be terminated.

Ky, a level-three Shareem and Aiden’s closest friend, is furious. He tries to extract Aiden, which only ends up in him being arrested alongside him.

Brianne, horrified, has both of them freed, but Ky wants to teach Lady Brianne a lesson to make up for almost getting Aiden killed. Aiden accompanies him, worried about Ky’s volatile nature, and Brianne finds herself alone in a train car with two Shareem men who have many things on their minds.

The incident has Ky bothered for more than one reason—it forced the feelings he’s kept hidden for Aiden to surface. But such things are forbidden to Shareem, as he learned the hard way years ago.

With Brianne with them, everything seems to be fine. But when Ky starts to give in to the longing he’s had for years, old danger resurfaces, which he knows could mean the end of his life.

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

This series pulls out all the stops for an MMF Erotic Romance with a Sci-Fi Twist!

Ky had never been this aching before, even after teasing a woman without releasing himself. But the scent of Brianne covered in Aiden’s oil and the taste of her skin, the heat of her pussy had been good. So good.
Even better had been Aiden’s fingers caressing his as they both stroked her, and Aiden’s tongue hard in his mouth. The combination of woman and man . . . Ky had never felt anything so potentially explosive in his existence.

We knew from the previous book in the series, Rio, that Aiden had developed feelings for his best friend and fellow Shareem Ky. He was content to hide his feelings for his friend, but fate has different plans. After all, the threat of death is a pretty huge motivator to bare your soul.

AIDEN
Level One Shareem

“It’s forbidden,” Ky said automatically.
“If we never did what was forbidden, we’d all be dead by now.”

Aiden was quietly enjoying a coffee and making eyes at a lovely woman sitting at a table across the room. She’s obviously interested (how could she not be interested? He is a face-sculpted example of male perfection) but she quickly flees the coffee shop before he has the opportunity to seduce. Unbeknownst to him, Brianne d’Aroth was the mysterious beautiful woman, and her bodyguards took it upon themselves to have him thrown in jail for stirring up her emotions. He is scheduled for termination…

BRIANNE d’AROTH
Member of the ruling family of Bor Narga

It had nothing to do with her IQ and everything to do with her being female. And alive.

Brianne is a member of the ruling family. A public figure engaged to a dull but equally powerful man. She has no intention of running off with the Shareem in the coffee shop, and left before her sexual feelings could override her common sense. She had no idea that the beautiful man had been hauled off and scheduled for termination. She uses her considerable power on the planet of Bor Narga to have him released, but not before making an enemy of Ky.

KY
Level Three Shareem

“You like to apologize.”
Brianne flushed. “You make me feel guilty. You’re good at it.”
“Only because I’m level three. The punisher. I want you to want your punishment.”

Ky and Aiden have stuck together for the past twenty years, and he’s not going to easily accept the apology of the High-Borne rich bitch that nearly had his best friend killed. He has a plan. Ky and Aiden will teach this woman what a Shareem can really do…

The three together are an explosive force. It’s not long before reality comes crashing down on them all…
Aiden must reveal his true feelings for his best friend.
Ky struggles to process his growing attraction to Aiden.
Brianne must navigate a way to enjoy her Shareem in a world where they are the lowest caste of society, and she is firmly at the top…

I’ll be honest, once Ky and Aiden begin to explore their growing relationship, I found Brianne to be fairly superfluous… I’m a fan of M/M Romances and would have been perfectly happy to drop the trio to a duo. That being said, when this book was first published in 2007, there weren’t a lot of M/M Romances written for a female audience, especially ones which take place in the middle of a series featuring M/F relationships…

But I’m certainly fine with it 🙂

Allyson James – Rio

Rio by Allyson James

Series: Tales of the Shareem #2
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Nella of Ariel is on the run, finding herself on Bor Narga, alone, penniless, friendless. She can trust no one—except the tall, amazing man who saves her from death by assassin bot and carries her off to his hideaway.

He’s a Shareem, he says. Rio. Level three, which means dark and dangerous pleasures.

Nella has no clue what Shareem are, but Rio is enticing, sexual, rude, crude, and makes her laugh. He also burns fire through her blood as he teaches her to trust him, the only way a level-three Shareem knows how to . . .

Rio had been on his way to get himself off stifling Bor Narga, where he lives as a near-slave. But he’s intrigued by his damsel in distress. And she needs his protection. Protecting her and teaching her is worth missing his transport, and maybe being stuck on this rock forever.…

Smutty Science Fiction; I am in Shareem Heaven!
This over the top Erotic adventure is the perfect steamy escape…

Shareem — men created in the laboratories of DNAmo to be tall, tight-assed and long-cocked, and know every way to bring a woman to ecstasy and keep her there. For days.

The Tales of the Shareem Series continues with another highly erotic Science Fiction adventure! This time featuring Rio and a damsel in distress…

RIO
Level Three Shareem

I’m a level three Shareem, a Dom. I make women do things they’d never dream of doing. I make them beg for things they never knew they wanted.
I spank them when they’re bad and pleasure them when they’re good. I whip them ‘til they come, then I kiss away the hurt.

Rio has been attempting to flee the planet Bor Narga for years. Just when he has his chance of smuggling himself onto a ship, he finds himself face-to-face with an assassin bot & a choice: Save an innocent woman or flee the planet which views him as a sex slave…

NELLA
A Princess on the run

She was innocent. She’d never met anything like a Shareem, and she had no sexual experience. He had to go slowly.
Rio had never gone slowly in his life. The women who wanted Rio knew what they were getting themselves into. No woman picked a level three Shareem without already knowing about sex — most of them were bored with sex and wanted something more.

Nella was captured and held prisoner for three months. She managed to escape her captor, and hopped transport after transport before landing on Bor Narga. Now she must trust the stranger who saved her from the assassin bot, but does she have any trust left?

For the Record: This book won’t be winning any literary awards. It’s not the best Erotica I’ve ever read… Hell, it’s not even the best Alien Erotica I’ve ever read. It’s campy at times, and completely over the top sexually. But you know what? I LOVE this series!

Allyson James – Rees

Rees by Allyson James

Series: Tales of the Shareem #1
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The Shareem. Males created to be tall, muscled, sexy, and… enhanced. They come in one of three levels pure sensual pleasure, games and wicked fun, or the ultimate barbarian complete with whip. They know how to bring a woman to ecstasy and exactly how to keep her there.
When Lady Talan d’Urvey reads the diary of a woman who spent one wicked week with a Shareem, she longs to experience the same carnality in one last fling before she takes her vow of celibacy. She goes in search of a Shareem and finds Rees, tall and blond, with Shareem-blue eyes. Just looking into those eyes makes Talan wild with need.
But Rees is a Shareem experiment that never should have been made. Rees is all the Shareem levels rolled into one, and then some. Rees is uncontrollable, Rees is unpredictable. Even Rees’s creators could never, ever be sure exactly what he would do.…

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_half

Science-Fiction/ Fantasy Erotica bred to my exact specifications…

In the year 3509, the company called DNAmo invented the men called Shareem.
They were taller than conventional men, strong, blue-eyed, long-cocked, firm-assed. They knew how to bring a woman to ecstasy and exactly how to keep her there.
The Shareem were DNAmo’s biggest success, but they were also its downfall.
The Shareem were trained in every sexual art. They were offered in one of three levels—pure sensual pleasure, games and wicked fun, or the ultimate Dom.

Welcome to the planet Bor Narga where women are the ruling class. It’s been twenty years since DNAmo went bankrupt and their cash crop of Shareem let loose – they are the lowest of the low in a society which shuns sex in favor of philosophy and science; they are viewed with curiosity and fear.

REES
aka Shareem # R294E8S

Rees was the ultimate Shareem. A level three, times ten. No one had ever known the extent of what he could do.
He was learning now.

Rees is an experiment which went wrong. He was completely out of control and was about to be terminated before escaping DNAmo in the days before the company folded. He’s been laying low, practicing his skills on the willing women of Bor Narga who are brave enough to seek out the infamous Shareem. But when an intriguing innocent girl starts following him, he finds himself helpless to the pull of a female for the first time in his life.

TALAN
aka Lady Talan d’Urvey

Talan had a feeling she would either regret her choice, or treasure the memory for the rest of her life.
Probably both.

Talan is a highborn woman and a avid student of philosophy. She is studying to free her mind from her body… She finds the diary of a woman who spent time with one of the legendary Shareem. Now she’s curious, studying them, and her curiosity gets the better of her when she finally sees one in the flesh. She follows him and eventually decides to succumb to his charms before she gives herself completely to the Order of the Star…

This is a story which features:
deflowering,
oral sex,
vaginal sex,
anal sex,
bondage,
spanking,
whipping,
MFM menage…

I should also mention that this book had more than a dozen grammatical and continuity errors which would have necessitated a lower rating had I not been so enamored with the story.

This is high fantasy and supremely entertaining. The sexual situations make for the majority of the storyline, but there is a fun plot with a sweet love story and a HAE…
