Taking the Stage

Soulgirls, Book 2

This is the second book in Heather Long’s series centering around the dancers at the Arcana Royale’s Midnight Mystery Lounge. You do not have to read the first book to thoroughly enjoy this sensual paranormal romance. However, expect to enter a world like no other. The Arcana Royale caters to those who aren’t human, but humans can come in. The dancers are only alive during the night and their souls are locked away until they’ve paid their debt to the overseers, except for Roseatre who choices to stay. Power, honor and love will all struggle against each other. Age old enemies find that their attraction to each other may be more powerful than the war between their peoples. And, hot sex comes in the form of a playful tiger and a serious warrior……both in human form, of course! Through it all, you won’t know what to expect and each chapter is spellbinding.

Roseatre had been with the Arcana Royale dancers ever since her shield partner stole something from the overseers. When she returns whatever she took, she will be released but no one knows what she took! So, Roseatre stays and dances. This is fine until the new act appears. TIGERS! The enemies of the Amazons. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with them but has no choice. Anthony wasn’t expecting to encounter an Amazon when he agreed to bring his cats to the Arcana Royale and he really wasn’t expecting to feel attraction towards her. Their people have been fighting for years! Still, he can’t ignore his inner cat telling him that he wants Roseatre. Can these two stop fighting long enough to discover the love that might happen between them?

If you’re looking for a different type of paranormal book, look no further. Heather Long does different, interesting and sexy all in one story and that story will leave you wanting more.

Book Blurb for Taking the Stage

When the tiger meets his tamer, “hot” doesn’t even scratch the surface.

Roseâtre takes one look at the white tigers that the stage manager has brought in to shake things up at the Midnight Mystery Lounge, and nearly has a heart attack. It doesn’t matter that the beautiful creatures’ handler raises her pulse and makes her want to purr. The tigers are sure to recognize her—and arouse her need for the hunt.

Pride outcast Anthony diNapoli wasn’t expecting to encounter an Amazon princess when he brought his white tigers to the lounge. The lucrative show will go a long way toward securing his future, but not if he gives in to the urge to make her submit to his dominance, and claim her as his mate.

No matter how desperately her body aches for the sun-kissed stranger and his completely lickable abs, Roseâtre is no man’s prize. Yet she finds herself hungering for Anthony to defeat her and take her for his own.

It’s show time in the Arcana Royale’s Midnight Mystery Lounge and all bets are off.

Warning: Contains sword fights, shackles, sexy showgirls, and a game of dominance between a determined weretiger and an Amazon who refuses to submit. Blades, bliss and battles, oh my!
