~*~ Review ~*~ Wilt (The Order Series #2) by Nikki Rae

40581796

When she was sold to Master Elliot Lyon of House Chimera, Fawn could have never imagined he was the same person as Elliot, the man beneath a well placed mask. A victim. Just like her. She would have never thought he was grooming her for the Wolf she’d already escaped once. That he planned to deliver her to the beast’s jaws in exchange for his wife. Master Jäger will stop at nothing to have her—even if that means using others as collateral. With more than just their lives on the line, Fawn must become someone else, and Master Lyon distances himself further from Elliot as her transfer looms.
The roots of the Order run deep within them, but Fawn is beginning to realize another bond has formed between her and her Owner, a man she vowed to destroy along with the rest of their tangled branches.
In a world where trust is just a tool and love isn’t meant for people like them, Fawn is determined to beat the powerful at their own elaborate games of make-believe. Even the man who Owns her.

My Review

Firstly I would like to thank the lovey Nikki Rae for kindly providing me with a copy of Wilt to read and review.

Wilt is the second book in The Order Series and continues the story of Fawn/Doe, Elliot/Master Lyon & of course Marius, and picks up right at the end of Bloom.

Fawn discovered that she was going to be transferred to Master Jäger again in exchange for Master Lyon’s wife…WTAF!

Plunged back into the clutches of Master Jaeger and his House, only a miracle can save Fawn. Will it happen? Read it and see.

We stared at each other; me into the eyes of my Owner once again and he lost in search of the girl who was already dead. 

Wilt is the perfect sequel to Bloom. I couldn’t stop reading because I had to know how the story was going to end. Wilt is so well written, engaging, thrilling and just plain amazing! It brought intrigue, darkness and all the emotional impact possible. It had me on the edge of my seat, unable to put it down desperate for more answers.

~*~ ARC Review ~*~ Captured by her Cougar (Cougar Creek Mates #2) By Felicity Heaton

In the wake of an Archangel attack on Cougar Creek, Storm is seething with a need for revenge against the hunter organisation and the key to it might be the petite blonde mortal he’s locked in his cabin, one he’s determined to make sing for him. Only the beauty has a fiery temperament to match his own, and the more time he spends with her, the more she stokes a fire inside him. One that fills him with a startling and undeniable need to make her sing in another way—in his arms.

Gabriella isn’t going to take her captivity lying down. She’s going to give the pig-headed brute holding her against her will hell until he finally believes she’s innocent. He might be a cougar shifter, but she isn’t afraid of him. Or at least she isn’t afraid of what he is. The way he affects her, the flames that lick through her whenever they’re close, terrifies her though, because the longer she’s around the towering sexy-as-sin shifter, the hotter that fire blazes, and it’s only a matter of time before it burns away all her restraint.

With the mating heat and the attack bringing cougars back to the creek, Gabriella is a complication Storm doesn’t need, but she’s one that he wants… because she might just be his one true mate.


Book 1: Claimed by her Cougar
Book 2: Captured by her Cougar
Book 3: Courted by her Cougar
Book 4: Craved by her Cougar

~*~

My Review:

This is the second book in this series and it did not disappoint. It starts off right where the first book left off so it’s best to read the first book before this.

This is Storm and Gabi’s story.

Gabriella is the half-sister to the man who came to kill Storm’s family. Gabi is feisty, and for all of her sass, Storm is just as stubborn

Storm is more moodier than Rath, his name suits him well. He’s got demons in his past that affect his decisions and mess with him. He does have layers and the longer he has his ‘little bird’ in his cabin the more his drawn to her, even if he tries to deny the fated mates link, I would have liked to have gotten to the bottom of his distaste in human women….maybe we’ll get to know this in another?

A great second addition to the Cougar Creek series, a mix of detail, hot sex and character personality.

There is some angst added into the story but it’s quite a smooth running shifter romance that is easy to read in one sitting.

~*~ ARC Review ~*~ Claimed by her Cougar (Cougar Creek Mates #1) By Felicity Heaton

Having lost his parents and mate in a brutal attack on his cougar shifter pride by a hunter organisation, Rath burns with a need to keep humans off his land and out of his life. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his pride from them, but when a lone female wanders into his territory, it isn’t a burning need to drive her away he’s feeling and it isn’t his pride that needs protecting—it’s his heart.

Down on her luck, Ivy follows a lead to a spot where she hopes to photograph black bears, but what she discovers there is a mountain of a man who lacks manners and seems determined to drive her off his property—a man who stirs unbidden fire in her veins and a strange sense of home.

With a pride gathering on the verge of happening at Cougar Creek and the air charged with a mating heat, the last thing Rath needs is a human on his land, especially one as beautiful and alluring as Ivy, one who rouses a fierce need to fight for her, but he can’t convince himself to let her go… and that proves dangerous for them both.

Discover four sexy cougar shifter brothers guaranteed to become your next book boyfriends in this hot new shapeshifter romance series from New York Times and USA Today international best-selling author Felicity Heaton, set in the same rich and addictive world as her Eternal Mates paranormal romance series. 


Book 1: Claimed by her Cougar
Book 2: Captured by her Cougar
Book 3: Courted by her Cougar
Book 4: Craved by her Cougar

~*~

My Review:

Claimed by her Cougar is the fist book in Cougar Creek Mates series by Felicity Heaton.

Rath is a Cougar shifter living a quite and simple life. He is a loner and an alpha to the fullest extent, he maintains cabins for his kind hidden in the Canadian mountains.

Ivy is a human who is a photojournalist who’s looking to photograph black bears in the wild.

Little did they know that their encounter would change their lives forever.

Are they destined to be together, or will just her presence on the mountain end up ruining the quiet safe life Rath has made for himself and fellow cougar shifters?

Rath is a very guarded person and for very good reasons, so when his path crosses with Ivy he’s very wary of her reasons for being there but he’s torn between protecting Ivy or his Pride

Loved the scenery Felicity painted and the connection between the characters.

I would definitely recommend this book, I don’t believe that Felicity Heaton could write a book that isn’t worth a read!

~*~ New Release ~*~ Bloom (The Order Series, #1) by Nikki Rae

Synopsis:

Given to The Grimm Order as an infant, Fawn was raised in a world shaped by the rich and powerful. When she was sold at the age of nine to a Suitor, Fawn believed he would protect her from the “Mainworld”, where those who know nothing about the Order live. Living with the cruel man who bought her freedom, she finds just what the Order is about: money, control, and status for the Owner and humiliation and abuse for those they own.
Unwilling to accept the expectations of being Owned, Fawn goes from golden girl to maid, content to live in the shadows of the Order as long as she isn’t Owned again.
It’s been ten years since she disgraced her former Owner’s name, and now the brooding Frenchman Elliot Lyon wants her. Master Lyon is kind, smart, and unlike any man she’s met. She doesn’t want to admit it to herself, but Fawn is drawn to him despite constantly planning her next escape.
Even the prettiest flowers have thorns, and Master Lyon is hiding secrets that will uproot everything she thinks she knows about him.

Teaser:

Ice clinked in his glass as he took another gulp and then set it back down. “He wasn’t supposed to touch you,” he finally said.

I knew it was impossible, but it sounded almost as if he was apologizing. Angered by his audacity—that he thought I would buy one word he refused to say—I couldn’t bite my tongue. “Why does it matter?”

My tone was ice; I had to wrap my arms around myself again.

I heard him inhale, but he still didn’t face me. “Of course it matters.” The edge to his voice sounded as appalled as I had felt the moment he’d tied my hands behind my back and made me even more helpless than I already was.

Anger flared in me even brighter. “Why should it?” I asked. “I’m only here for what men like that want to do with me. He’s just more honest about his intentions than some.” I wanted to sew my mouth shut. No one ever spoke to their Owner in such a way. I knew better, yet I couldn’t stop the truth from spewing out of my mouth. I squeezed my eyes shut, waiting for the impact of his open palm across my cheek, still damp from the condensation on his glass, but it didn’t come.

He casually took another drink of amber liquid, leaving just enough remaining in case he decided he wanted more. “Dry off.”

I was betrayed by those who I loved. Those who I believed in. It was the first and the last time I let myself love someone outside my family. A little girl grew up and opened her eyes.

Until I met him—Jack Daniel Shelton.

She left me. She ruined me. The day I found her gone I promised myself I’ll never let anyone have that kind of hold on me. Especially not a woman. Now she is back. No matter how much time has passed, no matter what I tell myself, her hold on me is still strong. There is also a secret she’s been keeping from me. A secret I can’t escape from, but a secret I can’t turn my back to either. A secret that could ruin everything I worked for.

And then, there is her—Sienna Roberts—everything was just as it was supposed to be. That is until she walked in my life.

Exclusive excerpt from UNTIL

We meet again, baby doll.”   

“I’m no doll or princess, hot shot.” I lift my chin into the air.

A soft chuckle falls from his lips. “What are you then?”

“A rebel, all sass, and attitude.”

His fingertips slowly touch my cheek. “For me, you’ll always be a doll.”

His words are soft caresses against my skin. I take a step back to break the spell his words left me under and narrow my eyes at him.

There hasn’t been a man that affected me like that in … ever.

I don’t know what it is about J.D., but every time he’s near I lose myself to him.

Johnny calls out and breaks our staring contest. He leads us through different poses, every one sexy but sophisticated.

J.D.’s hands move over my body—it’s nothing like it was that night. They are on my waist, back, or somewhere on my arms. It’s simple and professional.

But his hold is like I remember it—firm and strong.

The palms of his hands are not soft and taken care of like most of the male models, they are rough and chapped. Hands of a man that actually uses them for a living. When they trace my skin, in the most innocent of touches, they make me shiver in delight and my insides clench. Awaiting.   

He can feel it. I know he can. I heard that bastard chuckle softly behind me.  

I can feel the heat of his body all around me, it’s radiating off of him, and sometimes, when he has to stand right behind me, I can feel his hot breath on my skin.

We don’t say anything at all, we just do our job. But I can feel it. This something building between us.

Sexual tension.

Lust.

I never sleep with the same man twice, but something about him calls to me.

Makes me want more.

One more touch.

One more kiss.

One more night.

Until this passion inside me is extinguished completely.

I don’t know what I want to do with my life. The only thing I am sure of is that this is not what I imagined my life to be. So, instead of staying and trying to figure out what is wrong, I choose to run away. I choose the unknown. I choose the adventure.

What readers are saying about Lost & Found:
 
 “What I really admired about this book was the romance. It wasn’t an immediate fall into bed and declare their love for each other. It was realistic, rough on the edges, and slow burning. This isn’t something you see often in the sports romance genre (at least I haven’t found many like this) and Lost & Found is unique with the pacing, the story line and the honesty between all of the characters.” – Ashley
