Dragged back into the human world by well-meaning friends, jaguar shifter Matteo D’Cruz realizes he’s been in cat form for over seventy years. With another transformation, he could lose his tenuous hold on his humanity. There’s no salvation for a feral shifter, only execution. Damaged by grief and guilt, he doesn’t care overmuch. However, when he discovers an unmated female shifter, he can’t resist her scintillating allure or his instinct to protect her at all costs.
Carefree Dakota Gorman travels to Brazil to rescue her sister. Determined to expose the drug lords who have manipulated her sibling into a hurried wedding, she’s certain the baffling hottie Matteo is one of them. After Dakota’s sister turns into a giant jaguar before her eyes, she must confront a new reality, one including hidden family traits.
Matteo helps her trigger her first exhilarating metamorphosis into a jaguar, leaving no doubt about her genetics, but her joy is cut short. A blackmailer sends Matteo a video of her transformation, demanding DNA samples. The extortionist threatens to post the recording to the internet and expose the shifters to the world. Dredging up courage she didn’t know she had, Dakota joins Matteo and the other jag shifters to save her family—and her new species—from scientific experimentation
Jungle Salvation is the long anticipated second release in M.A. Jewell’s Jungle Queens series and is definitely worth the wait!
While paranormal is not my favorite in romance, she hit this one out of the park. The writing was simply wonderful, and the reader feels immersed in the Jaguar’s world of the lush jungles of Brazil.
This book is about Kelsie’s sister Dakota, who has come to find out why Kelsie has left home and decided to get married. While there, she meets Matteo.
Matteo hasn’t shifted out of his jaguar form in years, but he does now, and when he meets Dakota, all bets are off.
But Dakota’s life is in danger, and it will take an army to get her back. This is a great read by M.A Jewell, and if you haven’t read her before, I suggest you start with the first book in the series. Jungle Rapture.
Series: Rise of the Dominants #1
I have to say, I have always been a huge fan of Red Phoenix’s, and her series about Brie’s Submission is one of my absolute favorite. Now, we get to see a whole new perspective! We go back in time a bit to when Sir Thane Davis was just college kid Thane Davis.
We see from his view how he meets his college roommate, his vodka swilling lab partner and more! It was a blast getting to see back to the early days back before Sir and Brie.
I totally LOVED this series and I cannot WAIT to see what comes next in this trilogy.

Capturing Cassandra – Piper Stone
The Masters of the Castle are back! Maren Smith and friends much loved series about “The Castle” is back with 8 new stories and 10 writers! All of the short stories are central to one theme. A young, blind woman is witness to a crime and her cousin, Master Marshall decides to hide her out at the Castle.
Most of the authors have the women posing as “Little Maids” most undercover to try to catch the assassin. Such as Marin, Allysa, Rayanna, Kathryn, Kate, and Tabatha. My favorites in this series were BJ Wane’s Controlling Carlie and Piper Stone’s Capturing Cassandra, both of which stood out for me out of all 8 stories.
But the whole book is entirely worth reading from the epilogue to the very end! Maren did a great job assembling this cast of amazing authors!
Aidan O’Malley walked away from his fiancée, Lexi, and their best friend, Lucas, after a night of passion left him shaken to his core. Years later, Aidan returns home from Iraq haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life.
Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries.
Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret.
When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them.
Siren Beloved is the 4th book in Sophie Oak a.k.a Lexi Blake’s mega-hot Texas Siren’s series. For all of you out there who didn’t know, this is the book that Lexi Blake decided to take her pen name from thanks to Lexi’s character. She’s one of my very favorites as well.
Lexi has been getting herself into trouble, and her stepfather Jack and “The Club” owner Julian have decided to take matters into their own hands. Even though Lexi has Lucas, he can’t quite top her and keep her in control. Both of them are still not quite over missing Aiden, Lexi’s fiancee who walked out on them both.
That’s where Master A comes in. Lexi has to agree to let him dom both her and Lucas or she’s out for good. She reluctantly agrees, but both her and Lucas are in for a surprise.
There’s lots of drama, adventure, romance and sex scenes that will blow your socks off! Sophie/Lexi has rewritten Siren Beloved and updated it to makes it better, (As if that were possible.) Some friends from her Masters and Mercenaries series make appearances as well, adding to an already wonderful story!
Lexi realized she was in serious trouble the minute the words left Lucas’s mouth. Hell, she’d realized she was in trouble the minute she opened her mouth. What was she thinking? She knew damn well how to behave in a dungeon, but something about this Master made her want to push him. Damn it. She’d been this way all of her life. She had to push. She thought about taking a step back, but before she could make her feet move, Master A had her in a fireman’s hold.
“Hey!” She shouted as her world upended. She turned her head up to throw a desperate look Lucas’s way.
Lucas stood there, a stony cold look on his face. In that moment, he was all Dom, and she’d never seen him look hotter. There was a confidence about him she had rarely seen when he was around her. Lucas was utterly in command at work, but his surety faltered when she walked into the room. Even when he performed a scene with her, she knew he worried about her comfort. He didn’t look worried now. He looked ready.
Her heart started to pound as Master A turned, and she lost sight of Lucas.
“I need a chair, Lucas.” The words came out of the Master’s mouth like a judge delivering a sentence.
“Yes, Sir.” Lucas’s words were silky smooth. There was not a hint of hesitation now. She could hear him moving to do Master A’s bidding.
“What do you think you’re doing?” she asked, though she was a bit less hostile now. She’d fucked up. She was glad Julian wasn’t around to witness it, though Leo would probably tell him. Tears pricked her eyes. Damn, she was proving to Leo she couldn’t handle the lifestyle. “Look, Sir, I’m sorry. It was wrong of me to be rude to you, but I was merely pointing out that Lucas and I had a plan for tonight.”
Reason. She could reason with him, surely. It worked on all the men in her life. Of course, usually she was looking at them instead of trying to plead her case to a group of back muscles. The muscles were unbelievably tight, but his skin—oh, his skin had been decimated in his lower back. It was a mess of white, puckered flesh, and she could see both neat, surgical lines, and jagged edges. She reached out to touch the mass of scars, but she was jerked back over his shoulder and set on her feet before she could make it. She wobbled on her heels, but Master A’s big hands held her shoulders.
“I don’t think you understand how this is going to go, sub. I am the Master, and you are the one being punished. I won’t put up with a spoiled princess telling me how her punishment will go. It will go the way I say it will go. First, you will pay for the insult to me, and then we’ll proceed to the sawhorse.”
“I don’t like the sawhorse.” The words came out breathy and small, because she was beginning to understand that this was serious.
Master A didn’t look like he was planning on giving in. And she hated being called a spoiled princess, but a part of her worried that he was right. The last few years, she’d allowed herself to become spoiled and dependent. She’d fled from everything that hurt her. She’d hidden. She’d let her stepfathers and Lucas coddle and provide for her so she didn’t have to face the truth.
Master A didn’t flinch. “I don’t care. Lucas has done the best he can, but the truth is he wasn’t trained to be a Dom. He might enjoy it from time to time, but he prefers bottoming. You require a firm hand. If you don’t want it, then you’re free to leave. No one is holding you against your will. This is all about consensual play, so you have to make the choice. Do you want the session to continue?”
She hated this part. This was the part that she’d never understood. She had to make the choice, and she couldn’t put it off on anyone else. She wanted for him to simply do it. Then she could blame him later, but that wasn’t what The Club was about. She’d been coming here for over a year, and she finally had to decide to make the choice—stay and put herself in the hands of a stranger, or go and never know what it was like. And then there was the fact that Master A was right. Lucas needed something she couldn’t give him.
She cast her eyes down submissively. How bad could it be? “Yes, Sir.”
NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake lives in North Texas with her husband, three kids, and the laziest rescue dog in the world. She began writing at a young age, concentrating on plays and journalism. It wasn’t until she started writing romance and urban fantasy that she found the stories of her heart. She likes to find humor in the strangest places and believes in happy endings no matter how odd the couple, threesome, or foursome may seem.
Revenge is best served cold…
Gabriel Henshaw is nothing but a monster—a ruthless killer—that’s what Lissa Andrini has always been told. Sold to the man by her own father, she fears for her life, yet she can’t help the insane pull she feels to him. It has to be some form of Stockholm syndrome, surely? It couldn’t possibly be the effect of his Dominant nature effortlessly pulling her under his spell and awakening her latent submissive side.
Beating Andrini to a bloody pulp soothes Gabe’s rage temporarily, but that leaves his daughter. Were it not for a promise to her mother, he’d refuse this payment, not least because Lissa Andrini awakens all of his protective and carnal instincts. The perfect counterfoil for his darker needs and desires, she has the power to bring him to his knees.
Can love flourish when you’re a pawn in a dangerous game?
Be Warned: BDSM, spanking, anal sex, Daddy Dom/little girl play
Gabe’s Revenge is the second release in mega-hot author Doris “Get Out Your Fans” O’Connor’s McLeod Security series. (And I mean it, you’ll want a fan handy for this one, or at least air conditioning!)
This is a May-December romance that has some undertones of Beauty and the Beast going on, but definitely with it’s own steamy take. Gabe is in charge of several businesses in London’s underbelly. One of his debtors has a daughter, Lisandra, or Lissa. When her father becomes deeply indebted to Gabe, Gabe decides that Lissa is his payment, even though he’s the one who introduced her parents.
Lissa is furious, and when given the chance, paints Gabe as a monster, but is he really? As Lissa gets to know the alpha, dominant Gabe, who will she turn to?
Once again, Doris has written a spellbinding book that I just couldn’t put down! You don’t want to miss this one!
“This book was delicious… I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting, I just could not put it down.” – Goodreads reviewer
The first time Sean Bates saw Alessa Alexander at a BDSM club without one of her friends attending with her, he didn’t approach her or interfere, deeming it was none of his business. The second time, his protective, dominate instincts forced him to confront her, and then offer his professional counseling for her needs.
Alessa’s desire to turn herself over to a man’s full control kept her from believing she’d ever enjoy a long-term relationship like her friends recently committed to. When she gets up the nerve to ask Sean Bates to tutor her in her unorthodox fantasies, the first scene he devises leaves her aching for more of his strict control, but worried about keeping her feelings uninvolved.
Past heartbreaks kept Sean and Alessa leery of hoping for too much from their agreed upon temporary relationship. Between escalating problems with an ex at work and her insecurities, Alessa runs from Sean before she ends up hurt. But it doesn’t take her long to realize how much she wants him and his strict discipline, enough to risk the height of humiliation to earn his forgiveness.
His To Master And Own is the fifth book in the super, steamy Miami Masters series by the also super hot BJ Wane! So far, this series has been a sultry ride through Miami’s waters on a mega-yacht equipped for naughty fun with new couples in every book that aren’t afraid to live it up, and there is always a dash of drama to spice things up.
This time, it’s shrink Sean’s turn, as he and Alessa discover what it’s like to navigate a true M/s relationship. (That’s Master and slave for all of you newbies out there.) But the water isn’t always calm, and Alessa may have to face some serious humiliation if she wants true happiness with Sean.
This may be a bit more intense for some folks, so be warned. But as always, BJ writes a truly entertaining tale that you can go back to over and over!
