I've lived in hiding since the Vakarrans arrived, helping my band of human survivors evade the aliens who now rule our world with an iron fist. But my luck ran out. Captured by four of their fiercest warriors, I know what comes next. They'll make an example of me, to show how even the most defiant human can be broken, trained, and mastered.

Vakarran Captives Book One

When Kira Stryke and her sisters were young, the Vakarran warriors took over Earth. After the bombing of major cities and the death of millions of people, humans lost the battle for the planet. Kira has kept her sisters and several other humans safe for several years by hiding in the forest. She devised traps and snares for any wandering Vakarrans, thus killing some of their warriors. Now, Zaavyr, Coltan, Jax, & Aedan are determined to catch the human that their brethren have underestimated for so long. As a captive, Kira's spirit is not dimmed, but she doesn't stand a chance against the four aliens holding her. She feels strangely safe with them. However, Kira killed several friends of her captors' boss, and he is not as gentle as the others.

If you're looking for an alien captive menage romance, this is the one for you! However, dubious consent is rampant in this story, so if this is a trigger please do not read.

Audio Review:
Heather Firth narrates both male and female voices flawlessly. In fact, I almost like her male voice better than her female one.

I love firemen. Heroic. Selfless. Brave. I can't get enough. Imagine my surprise when local fire captain, Chase Matthews, wanders into my yard on moving day. I've hit real estate gold. Hot as sin with that all-knowing smirk creates an instant spark. But dating a firefighter isn't all it's cracked up to be. Chase keeps me at distance even when I attempt to break down his walls. A friendship with the nosy eccentric woman down the street reveals there's more to Chase than he's willing to share. I'm playing with fire and bound to get burned.

Standalone Story.

Callie Gordon is moving into her new house when the firemen from down the road show up to help out. Callie is immediately smitten with fire captain, Chase Matthews. Chase says all the right things and treats Callie like a princess. However, he has a few secrets that he refuses to share. Talk of his family is off limits and when Callie asks questions, he distracts her with kisses. Everything changes one night at a bar.

If you're looking for a book that throws a twist at you in the middle of the book that completely redeems the story, this is the book for you!

*Trust me. Even though you can't imagine a happy ending after the things Callie has gone through, stick it out. It will be worth it.

Kiara Arrio is on the run and dying when four tall, dark, and gorgeous strangers find her in a crumpled heap along the road to the hospital she was desperately trying to reach. The small herd of stag shifters are immediately drawn to the injured woman, taking over her care as she recovers from her illness. They're entranced by Kiara's strength, her sass, and her sweetness, and do their best to woo her, hoping to claim her for their own. There's just one problem: Kiara already has a mate. And she certainly didn't run away from one only to find herself with four more.

Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?

Evie moves into a rental house that is just perfect for her, at least until her new landlord leaves the first of several irritating notes on her front door. Charlie is shocked when the librarian his mother chose to be the new tenant in his rental house reacts badly to his reasonable requests. The lease on the house clearly states no changes are to be made to the flower beds or the lawn. After one too many notes, though, Evie decides to get revenge. You can only break a rule if you know what the rules are, so she arms herself with the rental agreement. The town of Mistik Ridge looks on in amazement as the rigid Charlie begins to bend to the will of the effervescent Evie.
