The Wildling Saga Volume One: Fire and Stone
on April 27, 2014
This story catches you right from the start. A story about Dreanna a wilding of the forest. This is an adult book and over 18 is recommended. She is escorting a group with a mage through the woods. She becomes attracted to her and watches as the mage uses her powers to create her own personal lover from the flames of a campfire. After sneaking away from the mage she finds herself alone in the woods where she finds a statue overgrown with vines. She out that this statue has been cursed and is actually a living man. He has no idea how long he has been cursed but tells her the tale of what happened the day he became stone. He tells her about his betrothed that he was showing countryside to. "Melody was beautiful - that is not in any doubt - but the sight of her delicate features, her shining hair, her willowy form, raised in anger against me... I suddenly realised the spirit that was in her, and I knew then that I would never feel for anyone as I felt for Melody." They begin a quest to find his home, his love, and the one who cursed him. That is where it ends and it killed me!! I can't wait to read about these two and can imagine the trouble they get into. It's a sexy tale of curses and magic that shouldn't be missed.

The Wildling Saga Volume Two: The Silver Chain
on April 29, 2014
Alura, the witch of Howling Rock, has had Princess Melody as a captive. Over the years Melody has become her submissive chained from around her neck to her breasts and down to her genitalia. Alura decides that its time for Melody to be transformed into her true self. Alura, sacrifices Melody's body to the gods of the Rock. This was an intense BDSM story. It surprised and shocked me. I couldn't put it down until I found out what happened to Melody and Alura. It's a great adult read for everyone who enjoys reading BDSM stories. The only thing I wish it had was more of was the back story, but that's just for my own curiosity.

on May 05, 2014
On Galaway Bay is where the moon witch coven is. Lenny is about to become the moon witch she was born to be. Her mother is the coven leader and it's time for her to teach Lenny how to use her powers and protect her family and coven. The coven's duty is to protect the humans from vampires. While taken out for practice Lenny and her mother run into a vampire and her mother protects her. She see's her mother in a different light and is unsure of how she feels about her new duty. She see's her mother in another light and having to deal with her sister's jealous is almost too much to handle.
This was a great story for a young reader. She see's her mother in another light and the strong bond she has with her sister is tested. She has to become her own person. It's a great lesson for every girl to explore. This was a great foundation to what I expect is a wonderful series. I can't wait to read more of the series.

Paying the Rent
on May 20, 2014
This is the second time I've read work from Cross and once again I'm left stunned. I thought I knew where this short story was going, but it went in a direction I didn't expect. Well done once again. If you love erotica don't miss Paying the Rent or any of the other works by Cross.
Wolf Sirens Forbidden: Discover the Legend (Wolf Sirens #1)
on May 21, 2014
I started this book reading the preface and it grabbed my attention immediately. I was very excited to start the story reading about how and why the town of Shade was cursed with werewolves. Lila Crane moves to Shade with her mother, who recently became divorced. At the beginning of the book it was mentioned that the mother was from this town and I hoped that her mother and her past would of been an interesting part of the book, however I didn't see much about the mother other than her not handling her divorce well. For me I think if the timeline was changed a bit it would of helped the flow of the story. Almost as soon as she got there she was invited to join the "popular" group. It felt like it was almost a week before she saw the principle and he suggested she should take a tour of the school with Tealy Sutten. It seems to me the tour and gossip might have been better if it was before the invitation to the cheer leading squad. The mystery and the investigation of the town would of been more of the focus. Of course I love mystery and intrigue so I may be bias. This is the first of the series and I'm curious to find out where Smith is going to take us.
On the Right Side of a Line
on July 20, 2014
The story line is what first caught my attention. Someone born into a position that seems impossible to get out of. Kurth does a great job in relaying Vallen's inner struggle with his situation. He is torn between his loyalty to his family and community and what he wishes for himself. The only thing I found was missing was the culture. I'm not sure what ethnic background this neighborhood refers to. For me at least the ethnic background can be a great eye opener in how the community reacts to situations. I might have missed the point, but not having that point of view left me a little confused. I might have missed it in the beginning of the book, but that distracted me the most while I read this book.
