My Review

Since I picked one of Ruby’s books some time ago, I’ve been a die-hard fan of her Ice Planet Barbarian series. This book belongs to a spin-off series called IceHome that feature some of my beloved characters from the other series.

Veronica is a clumsy female that was abducted from earth to be sold as a slave but before she got to be one, she was set free on an ice freezing cold planet. She thought nothing of herself, she believes there was nothing special about her, but when she got her khui… Oh, she was more special than she could have thought.

Ashtar was a dragon shifter from another planet, abducted when he was eight to be sold as a slave and became a gladiator. He knew no freedom during his life, no friendship, no trust, no nothing, only fighting in the Arena and if he lost, he died. When his khui resonated with Veronica he couldn’t have been happier because she already was on his radar as soon as he woke up. But having a human mate was not easy and a compromise was necessary, and he wasn’t used to that.

To think that I was stolen from my planet to be a gladiator and somehow ended up with the finest mate in three worlds… I am beyond lucky. This is a good life. ~ Ashtar

Do I have to explain to you how much I love this couple? It was so much fun to forget normal boring human life (mine) and got into an ice planet with a mighty dragon as a mate. I love to see the growth and development of Veronica each day that she was with him alone, away from the tribe.

I know these books are fantasy but how they get to solve their problems can be so relatable. The struggles Ashtar went through, to be honest with his mate. The way Veronica had to adapt to his moods and behaviors. How he got to grow as a male by making friends and learning to do things for his mate.

Somehow being in a deserted planet, even a fantasy one, makes you see how many things we take for granted on a day to day basis. Other stories make this too but Veronica’s Dragon was beautiful to read and to get lost in.

For those of you that know the author and the other series, Ashtar is a drakoni like the dragons in the Fireblood Dragons series but according to the author, he was raised completely differently so he does not behave exactly like them.

She needs me to go slow. She needs time to adjust to this bond between us. She__
She is grabbing my cock… ~ Ashtar

Also, in case you haven’t notice… most of the books I read have sex scenes in them and this is not an exception to that rule *big grin*

I strongly recommend you to pick this book up. You don’t need to read the previous ones or other series because this stands on its own but I can assure you, it won’t be long before you’re reading the rest to get to know beautiful characters.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Convertirse en regalo para un todopoderoso rey de otra dimensión, que creía que podía hacer con ella lo que le diera la gana, no era precisamente el cuento de princesas con el que Anabel había soñado desde niña. Claro que tampoco había esperado nunca encontrarse a un atractivo vampiro aguardándola impaciente en su cama.

En el momento en que una hermosa humana —más desvestida que vestida— le vomitó encima, Azrael supo que el regalo de Neva traía gato encerrado. Necesitaba descubrir por qué la bruja le había regalado una humana encantada que le hacía querer olvidarse de todo excepto de tenerla entre sus brazos. Completamente seguro de que con sus siglos de disciplina como rey, resistirse a una mujer encantada no iba a suponerle problemas, solo necesitaba seguirle el juego a ella y a Neva para descubrir dónde estaba la trampa que le habían puesto.

Fácil, ¿verdad?

Demasiado fácil, quizás.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Private investigator Charlotte Davidson was born with three things: looks; a healthy respect for the male anatomy; and the rather odd job title of grim reaper. Since the age of five, she has been helping the departed solve the mysteries of their deaths so they can cross. Thus, when three lawyers from the same law firm are murdered, they come to her to find their killer.

In the meantime, Charley’s dealing with a being more powerful – and definitely sexier – than any spectre she’s ever come across before. With the help of a pain-in-the-ass skip tracer, a dead pubescent gangbanger named Angel, and a lifetime supply of sarcasm, Charley sets out to solve the highest profile case of the year and discovers that dodging bullets isn’t nearly as dangerous as falling in love.

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.

Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.

Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.

Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

Kindle Version ~ Nook ~ Goodreads

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Keifer Vassago, The Prince of Dragons, has enough on his plate without adding a brunette with a bad attitude to the mix. Fate has a way of screwing all his plans, though, whether he wants them screwed or not. One second he’s fetching his brother from yet another situation that could possibly compromise the Vassago name, and the next that brunette is grabbing his assets.

Blythe isn’t after anyone’s assets, though. She’s a good girl. All she wants is to graduate from nursing school, get a job, and move out of her hell hole apartment. What she does not have time to deal with is a sexy bearded man that accuses her of grabbing his junk. She tries to forget about the encounter, but fate’s a cruel bitch.

One second she’s a normal college student barely living paycheck to paycheck, and the next she’s setting her panties on fire with powers from an ancient immortal dragon. To add insult to injury, she’s hearing voices, and none of them are figments of her imagination.

Blythe’s life is turned upside down, and Keifer forces her to adapt even though she doesn’t want to. She likes her life just the way it is. Not to mention she wants nothing to do with that arrogant asshole. She doesn’t care that he rides a dragon. She also could care less about his stupid beard, and his sexy eyes.

Yeah, who was she kidding? She wasn’t convincing anybody.

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

HE HAD SWORN TO TAKE A PROPER WIFE.

HE HADN’T BARGAINED ON MEETING HIS MATCH…

Nicholas looks very much like what he is — the handsome, successful heir to a vineyard in Tuscany. But Nicholas is much more, for he is one of the last in an ancient line of satyr men. And the dying king of ElseWorld wants him not only to marry, but to wed one of the king’s own daughters — a half-human, half-faerie woman unaware of her heritage. Nicholas won’t shirk his duty to produce heirs to guard his race’s legacies, but he never plans to make his bride his only lover. A satyr’s sexual hunger and sensual skills are legendary. One woman will never satisfy him.

Or so Nicholas believes until he meets Jane. As spirited as she is fey, as beautiful as she is innocent, she is nevertheless determined to make her new husband hers alone — and she is eager for him to teach her every deliciously carnal secret he knows…

Kindle Version ~ Kobo ~ Audible ~ Goodreads

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it’s all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

Getting arrested wasn’t on werewolf Ivy Kincaid’s agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry…but the downside is the man she’s come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. Not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack’s sworn enemy… aka her fiancé.

Sheriff (and werewolf) Hank Merrow is the alpha’s heir. Everything he’s ever done, from becoming an Army Ranger to serving in law enforcement, has been in preparation for the day he’ll take over. Getting married to cement a shaky truce is no different. Hank will do his duty, even if it means shackling himself to a woman he has no intention of liking, let alone loving.

But Ivy is nothing like Hank expected. As feisty as she is beautiful, she’s as determined as he is to make a go of marriage for the sake of peace between their packs. The trouble is, Ivy has secrets that could destroy everything Hank holds dear… including his newfound love for her. Continue reading #BRMondays – The Werewolf Meets His Match by Kristen Painter

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Bleu has been living an isolated life away from the clan of Grayslake. He’s a happy bear shifter, building furniture and being alone…until a little curvy woman literally crashes into his life. When he pulls her from her car after she wraps it around a tree, he is blindsided by the connection. Never before has he wanted a mate, but finding Lola changes all that.

Lola didn’t plan on her deadbeat mom blowing the rent and then skipping town, so she’s without a home. Again. But this time it’s going to be different. Hearing whispers of shifters in Grayslake, she takes off in search of something, anything, that can bring some light to her life. When her car slips and she ends up in danger, she never expects her rescuer to be the one to give her everything she’s ever wanted.

Will being snowed in lead to steamy nights and mating bites? You betcha!

Warning: This is a short shifter story filled with sweet cheesy possessiveness and lots of growling. Obviously. Go ahead and read it. You know you want to! Continue reading #BRMondays – Growling for Mine by Alexa Riley
