Elfin Delights  by  Alice Gaines

Changeling Press

When Marla Roberts gets lost in the Northern California redwood forest, she doesn’t expect to find a gingerbread cottage inhabited by two hunky males with pointy ears and flaming red hair. They’re elves, they tell her, and so is she. She soon discovers that an elfin menage offers sensual treats she’d never find in the human world. What’s more? if she passes all their tests, they have an even bigger reward for her.

If you were given the opportunity to save a world, would you? That is the dilemma that Marla Roberts is faced with when she magically loses her way in the redwood forests of Northern California and comes face to face with six foot tall, hunky twin elves.

Adam and E-V-E by Bridget Midway

Adam and E-V-E by Bridget Midway

Phaze publishing

E-V-E, or Emergency Violator Equalizer, is an enhanced woman with a computer chip in her head that makes her the ultimate fighting machine. When faced with a Cerillion robot, she’s more than annoyed to have to fight along side an unenhanced human…especially one who brings out her human side.

Lieutenant Adam B’Luven wants to protect the last few Earth inhabitants without the aid of a machine like E.V.E. that’s making the human Army obsolete. But in order to save the humans, he’ll have to drop his prejudices…and his pants.

I enjoyed Adam and E-V-E immensely. It was a very complex story with at least three different lines being interwoven into a steamy romance set in the future.

E-V-E is an Emergency Violator Equalizer. She is a human with computer and scientific enhancements. Forty percent of her body is bionic. This is kept a secret and most think that only a computer chip is implanted in  E-V-E’s brain. I found E-V-E to be very heart-warming to watch as she discovers that her computer chip malfunction may be something else entirely.

Snowfire: Party Favors by Selena Illyria

Snowfire: Party Favors  by Selena Illyria

Changeling Press

Nevada has been working so hard she’s exhausted. Lucian is determined to get her to rest — even if he has to kidnap her and tie her to the bed to do it.

I found Snowfire:Party Favors to be a very small slice of life that left me wanting more.

Lucian is a poor neglected vampire who I think cares greatly for his partner Nevada. I felt bad for him as he needed his partner but she was too busy with work to spend time with him or his family. Lucian’s love for Nevada shows when he plans an elaborate kidnapping scheme to whisk Nevada away for the rest she needs.

Nevada seems to realize that she was pushing aside Lucian and tries to make amends but Lucian is already gone. I thought it was telling that her exhaustion was so excessive that she never woke up through the entire kidnapping. I did find it cute that Nevada turned things around in the story. I thought it showed that she was more than just a workaholic.

I found the Valentine’s surprise that Lucian planned very hot. I wanted to know more about both Lucian and Nevada and the two weeks that he had planned for them.

I recommend Snowfire: Party Favors for a very quick read and I hope to read more of both Lucian and Nevada and their life together in future stories.

A Gift For Adam by Adriana Kraft

A Gift For Adam by Adriana Kraft

Whiskey Creek Press Torrid

Home and Garden assistant manager Evie Strand has painstakingly embroidered a set of seven thongs as a gag gift for her best friend— only she brought the wrong box to the store Christmas party, and now Adam Grant from Automotive is holding them up for everyone to see: Kiss my…, Tight Fit—could things get any worse? Adam may seem like a total rake, but he can tell Evie’s deeply embarrassed and he resolves to make it up to her. Who knew where a simple dinner date would lead?

I loved A Gift For Adam and was thoroughly entertained from the first line to the last. I must mention that there is a F/F kiss shared between girlfriends but this is definitely the hot tale of romance between Evie and Adam.

I loved Evie’s wicked humor. It showed not only on the sayings that she embroidered on the thongs but she teased Adam through the entire story. I could see Evie as being a simple farm girl. She never “dressed up” or did much with her appearance. When she had her makeover, I could tell she was surprised at how she looked.

Serendipity 7C  by Lexxie Couper

Changeling Press

One lost Australian tourist. One mischievous Christmas sprite. One magical apartment complex. One Christmas gift to be remembered for a lifetime.

Welcome to Serendipity Estates, where accidental meetings, a little magic, and a bit of hot lust are a recipe for love ever after. We hope you enjoy your stay.

Jack McKenzie is an Australian who is visiting his cousin for the Christmas holiday. I just felt terrible for Jack. His girl dumped him, the airlines lost his luggage, and his cousin is not where he is suppose to be. It seemed like everything that could go wrong does. But being that it is Christmas, a little magic is always in the air, especially around Serendipity Estates.

Serendipity 5A  by  Dawn Montgomery

Changeling Press

Welcome to Serendipity Estates, where accidental meetings, a little magic, and a bit of hot lust are a recipe for love ever after. We hope you enjoy your stay.

In an apartment complex where fortunate accidents in love occur, Donna and Jack will have a Christmas present mix-up that shows a little bit of their kinky side.

Serendipity means good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries and that is what happened to me. I had the good luck of reading this story of two neighbors who stumble upon their common bond. It appears to be just an accident but is it really.

Hunters of the Nile by Ellie Moonwater

hunters of the nileHunters of the Nile by  Ellie Moonwater

Lyrical Press

Every era has its hunters…and its prey.

Callie never thought her life could get any weirder or more frightening than when she’s kidnapped and thrust the role of fox in a deadly hound hunt. A subsequent fall tumbles her through time and into the arms of an Egyptian warrior.

At first convinced she’s landed among re-enactors, Callie discovers some things are exactly what they seem. A captive, Callie finds out reality holds passion, romance and more surprises than she ever imagined.

I found Hunters of the Niles to be a different type of time-travel story. It was not so heavy on the hero or his life with the heroine but more on her adaptation to her new time period.
