Stygian's HonorStygian’s Honor (Breeds #27) by Lora Leigh
* This book is part of my personal library*

Window Rock, Arizona, is the last known location of Honor Roberts, who vanished when she was just thirteen. It was her only sanctuary from the Breed research that would surely have ended in her death—one such insidious experiment should, indeed, have killed her. That she lived is both a miracle—and a great mystery.

Stygian’s mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?

The hunt for the three missing teens continues; the breeds must find them before the council soldiers or Gideon do. The search has led them to Window Rock, Arizona and with the help of Liza Johnson, they hope to uncover their identities. The Tribal Elders will do anything they can to keep the secrets of the past including lying to their own daughters.

Liza has had a happy life; she has been working for the chief and training to be a part of their underground breed recovery program. She may have a photographic memory but nightmares have been plaguing her years. She has learned to compartmentalize them and she never remembers them when she wakes up, that is until Stygian comes into her life. He makes her question her life and who she really is.

Stygian has been a loner for most of his life. He is a breed enforcer that works for Jonas and has been assigned to find Honor Roberts, no matter what the cost. He has been intrigued with Liza since he first spotted her and realized that she was his mate. Because Liza is hiding within herself, the mating heat is reacting different and doesn’t seem to be affecting her like it has other mates. Will Stygian lose his mate when the truth comes out?

Jonas will do anything to save his daughter and he hopes that Liza is the key. They run keep running into roadblocks at the Navajo Nation who are determined to protect the secret of what happened that night no long ago. The car wreck not only changed the lives of Liza and Claire but everyone else involved too. Now that Liza’s life is in danger, she has to come to terms with the nightmares and memories that have been plaguing her for years.

For me, their story helped progress the overall story and revealed some of the missing pieces but at times it seemed the story dragged along too. Honor’s story seemed to drag out a little more than it had too, I understand that it had to unfold a certain way but it just seemed to go on and on. I did enjoy the connection between Stygian and Liza and I felt bad for her as everything came out. I can’t imagine what all she was going through but she handled it well. I can’t wait to read the next one to see what else is revealed and if they find the other two missing people. I am waiting on them to find a cure for Amber too.

Overall Stygian’s Honor is another solid installment in the Breed series. I am ready for the next book. I give it 3½ Flaming Hearts.  3.5 Hearts

Goldie and her BearsGoldie and Her Bears (Naughty Nursery Rhymes) by Dorris O’Connor
* I received this ARC free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Take one very human girl. Add three bear shifters and one BDSM club. Shake well. What do you get? Lots of delicious fun.

When Goldie Lockwood receives an explicit note, signed by none other than the man she fell head over clit in lust with on first sight, there is only one thing she can do – obey. After all she is dying to find out what goes on behind closed doors at the exclusive BDSM club.

Having his Goldilocks pounced on by his brother and sister had not been in Jason Stanhope’s plan, even if the little human’s responsiveness blows the triplets away. Porridge, chairs, beds, she tries them all.

But, can she be the sweet sub they need? Or will Goldilocks live up to her name and run away screaming?

Goldie’s boss has been star of her fantasies ever since she walked in on him changing his shirt. She receives a mysterious note with specific instructions, including what to wear or rather not wear. With much trepidation she decides to take a chance on the unknown and gets in the cab waiting outside her home.

Jason and his siblings own the premier BDSM club in town. They are a close family that shares everything, even their subs. When Goldie shows up at the club, Jason has other plans for her though, that is until she blows all his expectations out of the water.

Goldie didn’t know what to expect when she stepped out of the cab but she was in for the weekend of her life.  She hasn’t had much luck with her sexual encounters and rumor around the office is she is frigid.  She has just never had the right DOM to show her what has been missing from her life.  Now she has not one but three DOM’s to instruct her in the pleasures of sex.

Jason wants to keep Goldie for himself; he sees something in her that intrigues him.  He wants to share his secret with her but he isn’t sure how she will react and he doesn’t want to lose her.  When she finds out, she shocks them all with her reaction and needless to say, they are very pleased.  She intends to show one bear in particular that her name may be Goldie but she isn’t a scared little girl.

This is a short sexy retelling of Goldilocks and the three bears like you’ve never seen before.  It is full of sexy bear shifters and one very willing sub with plenty of sex. The story is fast paced and most of it takes place in the BDSM club.  It is not for the faint of heart and does contain sex with multiple partners.  I give Goldie and her Bears 3 ½ Flaming Hearts.   3.5 Hearts
