The Delight

A trio of stories of brothers fallen apart. Brought together by jobs to silence one woman, only she holds the cards in this adventure. Or does she?


Review

Teased starts off with Chalton. Do you remember him from the original series of Dark Protectors book? He sometimes pulled protection duty, but mostly worked with computers. The King has sent him on a mission to quiet a reporter spreading news about vampires. Spilling all their secrets and those of other species. Not only is Chalton on her tail, but so are the Kurjans, and maybe even a few of Chalton’s brothers. Chalton is suspicious of why he would be called to find the report and suspects there is more than the King isn’t telling him. Once an assassin, Chalton doesn’t want to go back to that life.

Olivia Roberts is looking for a cure and the only way she thinks she can get it is by telling the world there is more than humans roaming it. She won’t give up her source and she won’t stop her research and articles until she gets what she wants. Now she is being hunted and she has to decide what to believe, what to hide, and who to run from. A sexy vampire who is trying to stop her while also protect her?

This is a fast-paced story with a mystery of who the source could be, keeping Olivia protected from assassins and the Kurjans while also silencing her in a non-lethal way. Olivia is determined the vampires have the knowledge to cure her friend, while Chalton makes the ultimate offer of sacrifice to save that friend. The twists at the end are amusing but also lead to the next stories to bring this family together.

The Delight

When you are close to death, sometimes you make a deal you soul wants, when your heart may be on the line. Things are about to change and it may be just what both of these characters need in their life.


Review

Ronni Alexander is dying from a poison she has no clue how she ingested nor who is out to kill her. With time running out, there is only one deal on the table that can save her: mating a vampire. And it just so happened there was one available and willing to mate her: Jared Reese. One romp in the bed, bite mark, and off he goes to live his life while she lives hers. Or that was the plan. Instead, Jared has one taste and he wants more now, but this former pirate doesn’t know how to take on a dominant modern female.

Jared has lived a good life, but when the one woman he feels is his mate marries another, he isn’t going to settle down. Saving Ronni’s life seems to be noble, but also a way to stay unattached from the apron strings of marriage or mating in this case. Stopping in from time to time to get his rocks off is all he expects until the romp in the sheets gives him a taste of something he wasn’t expecting.

With someone trying to kill Ronni, she is setting off to trap them, but not without Jared lending a hand. The bargain struck is null and void, but she doesn’t see it that way. Amusing to the end as the old pirate has to catch up with the times to realize women don’t stay home away from danger. Ronni gives him a run for who is the more alpha, but in the end, these two are mates in more ways than a fuck and bite.

Short and not so sweet, dominant personalities collide for an amusing time, but oh so sexy time. Hunting a killer isn’t as interesting in this story, but it does guide the characters to their ultimate happiness.

The Delight

The story of the three Reese brothers wraps up in Tangled, but in an unexpected way. Taking on your brother’s former flame may not be a way to keep brotherly love flowing after a 100-year separation.


Review

Theo Reese rounds out the three brothers finding their mates, but what happens when Theo takes on Jared’s former love interest? Ginny O’Toole has more secrets than the President it seems. For ten years she has been repaying a debt that could cost her life. Steeling the Reese computer files is just another job. One that could cost her everything.

Theo is not falling for the piece of fluff, or so he thinks. Ginny stole his brother’s heart years ago and stomped all over it. Irritation with her mechanisms is just one thing he lives with. Well, until she steals important family files from them. Now he’s the hunter determined to protect his family, but he also feels the pull to a woman he has no business feeling more than an irritation for.

There is a force working against both of them and the stakes are high. Neither one wants to trust the other and they both think they are smarter than each other. Nothing is as it seems and it’s a game of life or death to the end. Adrenaline pumping, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering if they are going to make it. Slowly each lie is peeled back to reveal the truth and it isn’t as simple as anyone thinks.

This story wraps up the Reese brother’s fall to alpha women. Each has a unique personality, but in the end, they all will protect their mates and their mates will protect them.

I need to go back for this group of novellas still. The brothers and the dominant gals sound pretty good.
