Cassandra Wright is a psychic and has been dreaming of a hot lover every night. When her dream lover shows up where she is skiing, she is taken by complete surprise. How can Eric Wyvern be the man of her dreams? Who is he really and what does he want with her?

This is a good start to a different paranormal series. The writing is a bit rough and choppy in parts and the world could use some filling out, but the characters aren’t bad and the plot is decent if a tad short. This is book 1 and I’m curious as to where this series is heading since I didn’t meet too many people in this one.

Yes. This one. This whole series so far.
What? Too succinct? Well, ok then. :D

Katie Smith is a lion shifter who is infected with a virus and can no longer shift. Jordan Pride is the Alpha of his pride and his people won’t accept a mate for him who can’t shift. Shifters who get a virus turn into ravening werewolves and have to be killed so since Katie’s infection she can sense a werewolf, she trains to help kill them. Until the day Jordan becomes infected. These two were meant to be together. Will there ever be a cure for Katie and can a cure be found for Jordan before it’s too late?

These two have some serious chemistry going on. And stubbornness. Geez! Could Jordan be any more stubborn? I wanted to smack him upside the head many times. Other than Jordan being too stubborn for my tastes, this book is a hit with me. Containing paranormal elements, peril, mystery, plotting, humor, battles and sexy steaminess I recommend this one to pleasantly while away an afternoon.


  1. I've had the Dark Protectors in my sight for some time : they've had great reviews and, let's face it, great covers !

    1. This is a great series! And the covers are very yummy. :D

  2. Thanks for sharing. I haven't read that many books from Kensington, I don't believe.

    1. Kensington is the reason I got my blog going. :) They have many imprints, too.
