The Body Politic reviewed by Paranormal Romance

Nicole Harvey from Paranormal Romance has just reviewed The Body Politic, here's what she ahd to say:

"a great werewolf love story"

As most know, having two alphas in the same bed doesn't go well at all. They both want to have her but don't want to share. And it doesn't help when both of the Alpha's can't stand each other. If much more happens before they figure out what they are going to do, someone will get hurt badly. Serena's alpha males are ready to rip each other apart; she is trying to keep peace, to keep the two men from killing each other. Serena knows they must find a way to live with each other and soon. It is bad enough with them both fighting. It has made it extremely hard for her to grow used to her wolfen skin; the two men are not making it easy at all. And on top of all of that the full moon is coming and the feelings of the quickening are taking her and her hormones, which is overwhelming.

Serena just can't take it any more. She is extremely overwhelmed to where she must get away or she will go crazy. Serena escapes to a resort that tailors to werewolves. But no matter where she gets away to Catriona Molyneux finds her. Catriona is a socialite who wants to make her the next Prime Minister. As she becomes more and more overwhelmed Serena needs something, she needs her two men more than ever. If this isn't enough, other dark forces are determined to stop Catriona from getting what she wants, and that is Serena as Prime Minister. What will Serena do? If it was hard before to get used to who she was, things have gotten much much worse. Will the two men come to terms that they must get their petty crap under control, or lose the best thing the two of them have ever had, Serena? Will Serena let politics take control of her life? Or will she fight for what she wants and needs, a life with her men, a peaceful one?
This author took a story that many have done before and set it flying. Mikala Ash wrote one of the best werewolf love stories that I have read in a long while. The turmoil between the three of them, the fights between the two male alpha's had just became to much for Serena. Will her men get a clue that their fighting is tearing Serena apart and that they needed to pull themselves together as a team for the woman they love. It was just a damn great story with twists and turns that will blow you away. I look forward to seeing what she will write next.

Wolf in a gilded cage…
It is not natural for two alphas to share the same female, let alone in the same bed. Serena’s alpha males can’t stand one another. The two hunks are only a claw’s width away from ripping out each other’s throats.
Serena’s trying to avert bloodshed while learn how to live in her new wolfen skin. And as if that’s not enough, the full moon is approaching and the quickening is taking hold of her hormones.
Overwhelmed, Serena escapes to an island resort for werewolves. Unfortunately, she’s followed by the vivacious Catriona Molyneux, socialite extraordinaire, who is determined to make Serena the next Prime Minister. Other forces, dark and malignant, are equally determined to make sure Catriona doesn’t have her way.
Will Serena once again sacrifice herself to politics? Will her two lovers let her?

Killer Attraction OUT NOW from Whispers

My erotic werewolf thriller, Killer Attraction, is out now from Whispers Press.
Check it out here:


Story Summary:

It’s the night of the full moon and Justine’s blood is quickening with lust. Succumbing at last to the primal forces that coarse through her veins, she trolls the night, looking for anonymous sex. Romantic love, she believes, is no longer within her reach.
There’s a murderous lunatic running amok in the city and Detective Michael Greene is hunting the killer. He sets a trap, luring the fiend into his grasp with feminine bait.
Love of another sort draws Justine into the net and beneath the pale moonlight, where their paths intersect, violence, love and death embrace.


The cop watched me closely as I pressed the victim’s neck, stemming the flow of blood. So, she was a policewoman and this charade an elaborate trap to capture the Full Moon Murderer. My blundering about in the dark may just have saved Simon from their clutches, and saved some policeman’s life into the bargain. When cornered, werewolves can be fearsome things.
In the harsh light of his torch the dogberry’s face had a jagged look about it; deep set eyes, bushy eyebrows and well formed lips. It was a face with character, I thought, and my libido went into overdrive. Despite the threat he posed, or maybe because of it, my nipples had hardened inside my blouse and the heat in my pussy went up a few degrees. He was fit and strong, his pheromones potent, and I wanted him like none other.
“Do you mind telling me who the hell you are?”
“Justine Price.”
“And what the hell are you doing in here?”
“Hopefully saving this woman’s life.”
“I mean in the park.”
“Research,” I said off the top of my head. I hadn’t considered a cover story.
“What the hell?”
“I’m a freelance journalist,” I lied. “I’m writing an article about the murders.”
“Jesus Christ. You could have been killed.”
“Sorry if I mucked up your trap. I didn’t realize you were a dogberry.”
He reacted to the disguised insult, which surprised me. Not many cops would recognize the name of a Shakespearian fool if they fell over him. “This is not ‘Much Ado About Nothing’,” he said through clenched teeth. “Three women have died. If we’re lucky, Officer Meyer will pull through. She may have gotten a good look at him.”
I stilled my reaction to his rebuke. He was right, this was serious, though I doubted Officer Meyer would have anything useful to contribute. She’d have an impossible story of being attacked by a wolf.
On closer inspection, her wounds were superficial it seemed to me. Simon hadn’t a chance to do any real damage. He’d swiped her across the face, knocking her unconscious. She’d have some deep scars, which was a pity. From what I could see in the torchlight, Meyer had been pretty.
I took a deep breath. My body was vibrating with desire like a violin string. Panic stirred in my belly. I had to get away from this dogberry before I betrayed myself. “Well, I’ve had enough excitement for one night,” I said. “I’m off home.”
“Not so fast. Did you see anything?”
“Not really. Just shadows.”
“I distinctly heard you yell, ‘Get away from her’. Who were you talking to?”
“Just a shadow. He was crouching over her and scrambled away, so I didn’t see anything at all.”
“Scrambled?” His voice was surprised as I hoped he would be. “He didn’t stand up? You don’t know how tall he was?”
I shrugged. “No, sorry. If I didn’t know any better, and I know it sounds crazy, I would have said it was a dog.”
“A dog?”
I’d said it as doubtfully as I could, planting a seed. “Listen, I just saw shadows, okay?”
His features contorted into a frown. “Her wounds do look like scratches, don’t they?”
“It couldn’t be a dog?” I asked innocently. “Could it?”
The paramedics arrived and shoved us unceremoniously out of the way.
The cop took me aside, his hand gripping me by the elbow, and led me up the path towards the gates and the waiting police cars. I let him guide me though I had to restrain myself. Despite my lust for him, I don’t like being pushed around by humans. Few wolfen do.
He asked me a few more perfunctory questions. I tried to calm my buzzing heart so I could concentrate. It was like a curtain had smothered my conscious mind, and out of the slumbering brain my beast was clawing its way out. A wave of vertigo swept through me. I was afraid of losing control. I closed my eyes and counted till the dizziness passed.
When I opened my eyes he still filled my whole field of view, silhouetted against the cool lights of the city’s skyline. He was tall, built like a swimmer with wide shoulders and a narrow waist. He hovered over me as he took a look at my driver’s license and wrote down my address and phone number. An eager colleague called him back to the scene of the crime and he growled in frustration. He escorted me to a police car and told a policewoman to drive me home despite my protests.
“Thank you for giving Officer Meyer first aid,” he said.
“Don’t mention it.”
“I may have some more questions at a later date.”
“I’d be glad to help.” I was eager to get away. As I climbed into the patrol car I gazed up at him. “I’m sorry about the elbow. But I didn’t know who you were. You smell like Falstaff.”
A laugh escaped him. “Sorry about my disguise.”
“It was very good. It had me fooled.”

Hope you enjoy!

DARKE SECRETS released soon by Whiskey Creek

Tara Renee from Two Lips Reviews has reviewed Volume 37 and rated it at four and a half lips!

Darke Secrets by Mikala Ash
Killian is a police officer called in to investigate a suspected murder attempt. Fearing that the call is just the ramblings of an old woman looking for attention, she nevertheless goes to the house where she and her partner walk into a woman struggling with a man. The woman resists arrest and assaults the officers so that they have to take her into custody even though the man refuses to press charges. Killian returns the next night while she is off duty and it isn’t long before she and Michael, the man assaulted in his home, are going out to dinner and then spending the night in bed. The next day several secrets come to light that will determine the fate of this couple.

Darke Secrets is an enjoyable story by Mikala Ash. I was kept on my toes wondering what the true cause of the assault Killian walked in on was. The story has a fast pace and a wonderful flow. Killian and Michael have an undeniable chemistry and some deep secrets that will surprise you. This is a definite must read story.

Raven by Susan M. Sailors
Lorelei is visiting her friend at college when she meets a man named Raven in Edgar Allen Poe’s dorm room while sightseeing. Raven is a student who does paranormal investigating on the side. He and Lorelei spend time talking about haunted buildings and before they know it Lorelei must meet up with her friend. She and Raven spend several months talking on the phone getting to know one another better. She makes plans to visit him and the two have an amazing night of passion that takes them by surprise. They soon learn that their lovemaking might have had a ghostly purpose.
Raven is a fun, romantic story by Susan M. Sailors. The relationship between Raven and Lorelei develops gradually and with a strong basis in friendship. Their love scenes are touching and steamy creating a wonderful heat in the story. Raven left a smile on my face and I recommend it to all.
