Taryn doesn’t know who she is or where she is, but it's freezing and she is surrounded by threatening wolves looking at her like dinner.  When a giant man swoops in, protects her, and carries her off to his cabin is he in more danger or less?  It’s hard to say.  As she starts to find out more about this frozen, magical prison where she is trapped and the inhabitants of it, Taryn remains determined to do what she needs to to stay safe and escape.  Even if that means participating in a claiming ceremony with a hunky guy, or two, in front of the whole town. Join us as we discuss this delicious reverse harem book, the extreme sexiness of forbidden attraction, and the power in a curvy girl romance. Things are just starting to heat up on this Siberian prison island.

Did you know that fairies like to ride motorcycles, wear leather, and assassinate bad people? Neither did we! Come along with us as we meet Simone and Heath, and fall into a world where anyone can be cursed when they are at the right moment at the wrong time. When Heath, Prince of the Sídhe, first meets Simone at the motel she has been bound to by a curse, he knew she was his mate. And while Simone is very attracted to Heath and thinks that he is super hot (because he is), she is rightfully hesitant about his claim on her as his mate and their impending future together. This was a fun story of adventure, self-discovery, and fun sexual adventures that include squishy time with Simone and Heath, and Tom. WHAT?! Give us more of Tom, please!
