A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Nothing is more cherished than a mate, no treasure more valued or sought after than the perfect match. With a glance at Summer’s picture, Jubal recognizes not only his intended, but a submissive whose body cries out for discipline. There’s no question about claiming her, and when he spots her entering an exclusive BDSM club, he believes it’s Fate. Summer can’t get past the foyer without a master—and that master will be him.
At the sound of Jubal’s voice, she knows he’s the one, the man she’s been searching for, the master who can demand her devotion. Any other time she’d gladly surrender her trust and her heart, as well as her body, but tonight it’s an urgent task and not the search for pleasure that’s brought her to the club.
She’s been warned about dragons. And even believing Jubal might be just such a supernatural being doesn’t lessen the ecstasy she experiences in his hands. His carnal discipline and heady torment satisfy her—even as they force her to choose between risking it all or not.
Though he has no intention of shackling himself to a female, Tielo has devised a poker invitational to bring potential human mates to Drake’s Lair for his fellow dragons. Club co-owner Pierce has also set a plan in motion—to see his partner mated. When their two schemes collide in the shape of Lyra, smoke and flame result, literally.
For Lyra, the invitation to an evening of high-stakes poker is the answer to a prayer and her chance to help a family in need. But her confidence wavers upon entering Drake’s Lair, where the male members role-play as dragons and brazenly display their sensuality.
None are as dangerously distracting as Tielo. The gold-and-silver “dragon” could be her downfall, and not just at the poker table. Because despite his attempts at denial, overwhelming need and lust blast Tielo the instant he meets Lyra. He’ll have her beneath him before the night is done, his essence inside her, his claim undeniable.
For dragons, mating is no game…and Tielo is playing for keeps.
Bryn’s been called a shrink, a counselor, a ghost exorcist. Whatever the label, she’s always believed in the rightness of using her unusual talent—the ability to see and communicate with disenfranchised spirits—to convince them to move on to whatever awaits at the end of the ghostway. Scary and sad, frustrating and fun, never has it been as real as it’s become with Atticus at her side.
When Death chooses the name Atticus Denali and goes to the human realm, his intention is to take a holiday from misguided souls, disenfranchised spirits and, well — from death. But he no sooner arrives than he meets his soul mate, Bryn.
He could cast off the shell of flesh he's lobbied so hard to gain for his vacation. He could harvest Bryn's soul and take her home with him immediately. But Atticus elects to court her instead. Together they put a unique spin on the business of sending spirits on their way, all while discovering the delights to be found in pursuing La Petite Mort, the little death.
Their connection was instant, their attraction intense. Temperance and Demetri love each other. Lust after one another. Yet each craves the addition of another man to an already near-perfect union.
As soon as Temperance meets Thanos, she believes he could be the one. Need pours into her, a lust escalated and mirrored when he’s with Demetri. Reincarnated lovers, they’ve got a chance to spend a lifetime satisfying soul-deep desires—if they can avoid repeating the past, and being separated again, this time for all eternity.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Healer's Choice comes the story of a woman with the power of touch. Skin doesn't lie to her. It is her gift, sometimes her curse. She feels what others felt, and sees the things held in their memories...
With the touch of her palms to the skin of a crime victim, San Francisco tattoo artist Etaín can see the faces of the guilty and draw them. Changeling elf but unaware of it, at odds with her police captain father and FBI agent brother, magic and gift have put her in the path of two compelling men.
Cathal Dunne, the son of an Irish mob boss, needs Etaín's help finding the rapists who left his cousin for dead. Eamon, a powerful elf lord, is determined to make her his consort-wife.
Her gift once made permanence impossible when it came to a lover. Now, as she approaches the transition to fully Elven, her survival depends on keeping two. One of the men is willing to share her. The other isn't-until the search for a sexual predator turns deadly, and only by paying magic's price will there be any future at all.
Pulled from the void by a binding spell, demon essence becomes mortal-familiar, and Ianthe forms, yielding to her preference for the female shape. She longs to live a human life, to love as a human, and while she’s escaped the dark realm and the lord she called master, she can’t escape her nature.
Incubus, succubus, Ianthe is able to shift between male and female forms, though both aspects need to be fed. She could have any man, but it’s Homicide Detective Miguel Torres she wants, the man who unknowingly summoned and bound her. Their attraction is intense, immediate, and Miguel believes he’ll never want another—until he meets Ian, Ianthe’s mysterious twin.
Attempting to withstand needs and urges denied since childhood, Miguel buries himself in Ianthe’s lush body as he battles his attraction to Ian. Then drowns in shame when he succumbs to it—only to have the murder of a gay teen force him to revisit the past…before he loses his future.
Homicide detective Conner Stern doesn’t know what Khemirra Reis is running from, only that he’s damn determined to find out. Right after he lays her bare beneath him and works the beautiful obsession out of his system.
Sexual satisfaction first, revealing her secrets second—that’s the plan—except Khemirra is battling a fascination of her own. Her rational mind says stay far, far away from the gorgeous cop who doesn’t want anything to do with the supernatural. But after Conner catches up to her and shows her with heated kisses and carnal demands just how perfect they can be together, the wolf part of her nature is convinced he’s the right mate.
Conner wants her trust. She needs his help. But Khemirra doesn’t know which of her secrets Conner will hate more—that she killed a man, or that she’s a werewolf. Unless love overrides all else, they’ll lose any chance of a future together.

Aroused beyond measure, awed at discovering she can communicate with horses, they’re more than ready to stake their claim in a carnal sharing of pleasure.

Book 4 in the Supernatural Bonds series.
Dragons. They huff and puff and burn the house down when they don't get their own way. They're possessive, dominating, and don't know the meaning of carefree because they're weighed down by all the treasure they feel compelled to guard. They're trouble but it doesn't change the fact that Marika has it bad for a certain silver-blond male named Xanthus whose dark, dark eyes have a lethal effect on her libido.
She wants him, but she can't have him. Dragons don't share and she comes from a long line of tree-hugging, multi-partnered Drui. There are threesomes, foursomes — and more. But there are no twosomes and she's already got one permanent man in her life, Tallis — a shapeshifting Sjen who is every bit as dominant and possessive as a dragon. It's a hopeless situation, or so it seems, until Fate intervenes and Marika decides to go for what she wants — both Xanthus and Tallis in her bed. And if the men want to do each other? She's all for it.
Reader Advisory: While every effort has been made to enable Drui Claiming to be read as a stand-alone story, it is set concurrent to Sophie's Dragon in the Supernatural Bonds series, and some story elements mentioned in Drui Claiming are explained in more depth in Sophie's Dragon.
