To Collar and Keep ARC: Review



By Stella and Audra Price


Book two in the American Satyr Series
A surrender to the unknown has never been sexier.


Olanis, the summer holiday is upon the Satyr clans once more and it is the time for Harlequin, prince of the Rummer clan, to claim his first and only female, the Grecian Satyr princess Arabella, sight unseen.


Unsure of what kind of woman his clan had brokered for him, he is both interested in the woman that would wear his collar, and nervous that she won’t meet his standards. His female has to rival him in all things, and his hopes of that coming true are slim and none.


Arabella craves two things, finishing her education, and being claimed by her Satyr. An anomaly in the Satyr world, Arabella was afforded opportunities other princesses weren’t. Now, in a foreign land she is given over to the Prince she was promised to, and she couldn’t be more nervous. What's a girl to do when you’re being gifted to a man you have never seen?


Harley is a commodity to the Rummer clan, one that his father plans to exploit regardless of his son’s wishes. When he gives Harley an ultimatum, Harley and Bella have two choices-agree to the terms or rebel.


When sparks fly and new alliances are forged in the Satyr ranks, both Harley and Bella have to decide what it is they want and what kind of future they wish to have. Only together will they succeed, if they can suffer the slings and arrows.


WARNING: This book contains a Satyr prince with unconventional ideas about his princess, a princess with a mind to rival Hawkings, a feral Satyr with a hidden agenda, F/F scenes, polyamory and lots of hot sex.

ARC provided for review by author

I don't think I have hidden the fact that I really enjoyed Of Crimson and Collars and was keen to meet Harley and Bella and see where this series would go, and I wasn't disappointed. There is a different feel to this book, Ben is more established and a father and I think that gives more of a permanency to the novella, and that is in turn crystallised in the form of Harley, who with his more scientific mind was always the more stable of the cousins.

Harley is fun, sexy and irreverent, he knows what he wants and is not afraid of going for it, even if it upsets the applecart. Bella is innocent and worldly all at the same time, taught all the skills of how to please her Satyr but never been pleasured by one, until she is given to Harley. And pleasure her he does. Shunned by the women of his clan she forms a friendship with Mina, a friendship which gives them both pleasure and has the male satyrs around them panting for more and looking for the nearest hard surface.

 What I really liked about this book was the fact we got to see more of the inner workings of the Satyr worlds and that the clans are movable, we find out about the Wild Satyrs and we meet Corbin! Corbin has many possibilities and I look forward to learning more about this mysterious and sexy Satyr in the next story.

For those looking for erotica, the sex is hot, frequent and consensual, just enough to keep you purring through the intriguing plot and wondering what Harley will do when he faces a dilemma.

I give To Collar and Keep 4 frilly knickers out of 5, a damp panty read! Fun and frisky with satyrs and collars, just what a girl needs before an afternoon nap! Enjoy!

Skin Tight: The Review

By Ava Gray
Uncovering the truth is her specialty
As a forensic accountant, Mia Sauter could usually tell when people had something to hide. She made her living exposing secrets while concealing her own. Then, in Vegas, she met a clever, ruthless man who called himself Addison Foster. One year later, she’s still haunted by his betrayal.

He’s a natural born liar
The truth of him had long ago been buried. Foster was only one name of many; he’d been so many men, he’d lost count. Reinvented as Thomas Strong and hell-bent on revenge, his mission is about to be compromised by the one woman capable of exposing him…

Reunited, they confront the explosive chemistry still crackling between them. But their chance meeting will have consequences, for a ruthless madman has his own deadly agenda. The question is—if they survive the fallout, will he choose love over vengeance?

I finished Skin Game a couple of weeks ago and as I said in my review I scuttled off to Amazon Market Place and picked me up a secondhand copy of Skin Tight (I love that place for s/h books!) helps out so much when my book budget is stretched and it is the ultimate recycling! Moving on, I was so keen to get Skin Tight when I found out it was about Mia and Foster, two side characters I fell in love with in Skin Game and I am so pleased I did, because in some ways this book is better than the first.

Why? It has everything you would expect from this series, unique and interesting characters who you manage to relate to, no matter how bizarre their story, tension, a plot full of twists and turns and on top of that sexy scenes which make you fan your self and shout 'woah nellie'. The sexual tension between Mia and Foster crackled and sizzled in Skin Game, but ultimately was unrequited, in this they have a chance to see where it goes, the book also gives us the reason why Kyra (who with Reyes makes a guest appearance) and Foster have the abilities they do. We find out more about their pasts in one sense, which allows them to have a future. It also shows us how much danger they are in and the fact they are not alone in the world.


A great and well thought out series I can't recommend highly enough, if you want a gritty thriller plot with your sexy romance then this is the book and the series for you. I can't wait to meet Zeke in Skin Heat. Roll on January!

I give Skin Tight 4.5 frilly knickers out of 5. A tense and thrilling damp panty read.

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE AMERICAN SATYR SERIES:
Of Crimson and Collars is an extremely erotic and playful story that was a delight to read. I predict that I will be re-reading this one soon and believe you will be too. I will be waiting, impatiently, for my next visit with the American Satyrs. ~ Joyfully Reviewed

A Reviewer Top Pick! Stella and Audra Price work together to bring us a stunning story of domination, submission, demons, satyrs, water nymphs, trickery and lust...I would definitely read anything else they write as this was a most enjoyable read. ~Night Owl Reviews

They have created an erotic world of d/s which does not humiliate, a world where the innocence of the submissive is an engaging power. If you enjoy a book packed full of erotica then this is the book for you. I enjoyed it so much I went back and bought 3 more of there books from a different series. ~Loose Knickers and Window Lickers

I finally catch up and read and review Lover Mine!

Lover Mine by J R Ward


In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. Long divided as a terrifying battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was- or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call up on both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate.

Xhex, a symphath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between her and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mates.

I finally catch up with everyone else! Strange but true, I have had this book since July and petted it but was afraid to start it, what if I didn't like it, I saw all the other reviews, most of which raved about the book, yet still I was nervous. Why? Because I have hyped myself up for books I have waited for before and been so disappointed, but with this I should have just swallowed my fear and got down to it because I loved it, it even brought a tear to my eye!

Yes, I loved it, it was a great read, a real page turner which stayed true to the original feelings and ethos of the brotherhood which I fell in love with many years ago when I first read Wrath and then paced until Rhage's book came out. (Mmmmmm I LOVE Rhage)

The book is a really interesting read and very much a dual narrative with chapters narratiing Darius's relationship with both Torhment and Xhex, this helps us to fully understand John Matthew and his future and links to the past. The modern day story is engaging and unpredictable in a good way, face paced and sexy! There are multiple story strands here which are juggled with skill, the obvious being John and Xhex, but also Qhuinn and Blay, Layla and Qhuinn, Saxton and Blay, Qhuinn and Blay and their future, John and Torh, Payne and the Scribe Virgin, Lash and the Omega.... the list goes on, but at no time did I feel like it was all to much. I felt like the book was an enjoyable narrative map which help me excitably by the hand and tugged me down it's dark and winding path, each chapter getting closer and closer to the heart of the brothers.

I was really pleased to see Layla again, I have always liked this character and I am intrigued where her relationship with the brothers will go, I could see her in a very unique relationship.  Looking forward to see where all this could go.

In fact, end leaves us with lots of possibilities and I am looking forward to wear they are all going. A great read, sexy, erotic, pacy and full of action, need something to distract you from the thought of going back to work, this is the book for you!

I give Lover Mine 4.5 frilly knickers out of 5, a definite damp panty read which will get you all flustered for brotherhood love!
