Overview

From five bestselling authors comes five brand new novellas sure to heat up the night.

From Carrie Ann Ryan's Dante's Circle series, a demon from the fiery depths of hell must make his choice to follow in the footsteps of his father or love the submissive wolf who lays claim to his heart in His Choice.

From Marie Harte's Beasts of Burden, Eira, a fierce valkyrie, has spent fifty years trying to get a rise out of her goddess’s guardians. But when the battle-cat shifters give her what she wants, can she handle the heat—and the danger—that comes from loving them?

From Rebecca Royce's brand new series, the Alphas of each werewolf Pack are on the brink of war. Travis Michaels will use all in his power to keep innocent Lilliana out of danger and into his arms…away from rival Alpha Cyrus Fennell.

From Lia Davis’s Ashwood Falls series, buried pain, old lies, and dangerous secrets aren’t enough to keep the sparks from flying as Sarah Mathews and rebel leader, Damian Palmer, try to survive a new threat against their race.

From Leia Shaw’s Shadows of Destiny series, a war is brewing in the supernatural world. Rebel shifter Dalton’s only passion is protecting the colony, and flirtatious misfit, Eden, is a distraction he can’t afford. But as danger approaches, he learns that underestimating the sexy little wolf is a big mistake.

    Loved this

    I am a fan of Carrie Ann Ryan and Lia Davis' work. Not only did i enjoy the additions to their series. But i was introduced to 3 other authors who had written wonderful stories that drew me right in. Now i have some new authors to add to my list of must reads. This is truly a great collection or erotic paranormal romances.

    * ARC received form author in exchange for an honest review

    Carrie Ann Ryan~ His Choice
    I am so glad that we get to see Fawkes get his story; we meet Fawkes in Book 2 after he helps the triad and hunter escape from hell. A longtime friend of Bailin he knows that he doesn't have to follow in his father’s footsteps, which happens to be the Devil himself, and instead become a Demon of good just as Bailin has. But now that he has chosen the path of good and humanity what is helping to do now, he needs a mate or he will die.

    Leslie is one tortured soul all because he brother was a power hungry wolf. After being rid of his torturous reign over her she now has to decide what she wants to do with her life and what kind of wolf she wants to become.

    When two very lost souls find each other and finally find hope you can't help but be elated that two of our favorite side characters in the Dante's Circle series find each other. I give His Choice 5 out of 5, and I am very happy that Carrie Ann gave Fawkes and Leslie their story.

    Marie Harte~ Beasts of Burden
    I loved this short story! I have never read anything by Marie Harte but I am now a fan after reading this very different take on some old mythology. I looked to see if this novella was part of a series because I loved it so much and to my excitement this novella is the first in her brand new series.
    I love Eira, feisty& strong, she needs a man that’s stronger than her or she will never feel fulfilled. What she never imagined was the two men that always stirred her were stronger and more powerful than she ever thought she needed. Can she handle the powerful cats and what happens when they break the rules?
    I give Beasts of Burden 5 out of 5, and I am excited for this new series and I can’t wait to dive into this world she has created.

    Rebecca Royce~ Alpha Rising
    I had to add this Author to my “Authors to be on the lookout for” cause this novella had me captivated and begging for the whole series to pop out of Rebecca’s head and onto my kindle immediately. Basically I can sum up this novella in one word, Intriguing!!! I want to know what is going to happen next. 
    In just a short novella we met some unforgettable characters and I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens with them. I give Alpha Rising 5 out of 5.

    Lia Davis~ A Rebel’s Heart
    I have never read any of the Ashwood books before so this was my first introduction to the series and Lia Davis. I was a little confused with all the characters having not read anything in the series before, but I was happy I got to see Damian & Sarah have their happy ending. From the little back story I got in this novella I imagined that their love was one that was always “the wrong place the wrong time” type of love and I am always a fan of happy ever after.
    I wish I would have read the Ashwood series in reading order but since I didn’t I am curious and I want to go back and read the whole series in order. I give A Rebel’s Heart 4 out of 5 and can’t wait to read the whole series.

    Leia Shaw~ Destined for Eden
    This was my first time reading Leia Shaw’s work. This novella is part of her Shadows of Destiny series and I am sad that I didn’t read the other books first only because I feel like there was so much more to this world and I have missed out on it, so I am going to go back and read all of them now. As far and Dalton & Eden, I liked them together, I especially loved Eden’s strength and her determined nature.
    I give Destined for Eden 4 out of 5 and I am looking forward to going back and reading the whole series.

    Overall I loved Ever After as a whole and I loved the Introductions to new authors and series for me.

    ***Received from Fated Desires for an honest review*** Oh, wow!

    ***Received from Fated Desires for an honest review***

    Oh, wow! This was an amazing set of stories by five fantastic authors.

    Though each story is set in the paranormal genre, each is unique in every way imaginable, and took me from Hell to the immortal realm Asgard to places within the United States. The attraction between these strong men and sexy women simmered then exploded into fiery passion when each couple finally came together intimately for the first time. The strength and depth of what they felt for each other–concern, like, love, want, need—made that passion so much more believable and damn near tangible.

    But it wasn’t just the unfolding romance between each couple that made these stories so enjoyable for me to read. It was each author’s ability to put into words, and in such terrific detail, what was going on, what the characters saw, what they felt, that really pulled me in. I don’t want to a read story where I feel disconnected from everything that’s going on; I want to get lost in the plot and be in the character’s shoes as they go through the highs and lows until they reach that happy ending they deserve. And I was able to do just that in each of these stories.

    ~~~

    “I came out of hell not knowing what I would do, what choice I would make, but there really wasn’t a choice for me. I don’t to live my life without the other half of my soul.”
    - Fawkes, His Choice by Carrie Ann Ryan

    ~~~

    “Would you really beg me to save them?”

    Valkyrie didn’t beg. They didn’t surrender. But for her battle-cats, Eira made an exception. “Yes. Please, Freya. Save them.”
    -Freya and Eira, Beasts of Burden by Marie Harte

    ~~~

    How long did humans like to date before they moved in with other humans? He’d give Lilliana two days. The wolf side of her couldn’t need more than that to recognize they were supposed to be together. More would just be ridiculous.
    - Travis, Alpha Rising by Rebecca Royce

    ~~~

    Then suddenly she felt it–the buried need to be desired and claimed by this male as his.
    -Sarah, A Rebel’s Heart by Lia Davis

    ~~~

    “I see you, little wolf.”
    -Dalton, Destined for Eden by Leia Shaw

    Who doesn't love Demons, Angels, Battle-Cats, Valkyries, Werewol

    Who doesn't love Demons, Angels, Battle-Cats, Valkyries, Werewolves, PumaShifters, and Shifters of any type? You find something you like in this group! I read 4 new authors in this anthology! I've been a Lia Davis fan for almost a year, I have many Carrie Ann Ryan books, but keep running out of time to start one of the series. But I've found a new author to follow in this group! I loved the passion and comedy in Alpha Rising. Great banter back and forth between a strong female and the handsome stranger she is attracted to. Give it a try, our favorites may not be the same, but I'm sure you will find something you like!

    His Choice (Dante's Circle #3.5) by Carrie Ann Ryan
    Fawkes has reached the age of choice - he as to decide if he wants to be a soul stealing demon like his father, Lucifer or will he seek out love from his true half? He goes to the Earth realm to decide. While staying with friends he meets Leslie. Her brother has done a number on her and she has become a wolf afraid of violence. Fawkes is drawn to her, but afraid she will fear his violent side. What will happen when he shows it?
    Favorite quote: "Stop feeling sorry for yourself and find something to live for. If you don't, then what was the point of making your choice."

    Beasts of Burden by Marie Harte
    For 50 years Eira has failed to get a rise out of her goddess’s guardians. The guardians, two battle-cat shifters, have been through everything together and met over 300 years ago - and both want Eira, but the goddess has asked them to wait. What will it take to brake the hold keeping the three apart?

    Alpha Rising (A Fallen Alpha #0.5) by Rebecca Royce
    Lilliana has had a hard life. Her mother died a year ago leaving her with huge debt. She has lost 5 jobs in the last year. Could it get worse? She just has these odd behaviors every now and again ... what she doesn't know is why. All of that is about to change when she meets Travis Michaels. Now she wishes she hadn't sworn off men for 12 months - how will she last? There is such chemistry and trust - now she really thinks she is going nuts.
    Favorite quote: How long did humans like to date before they moved in with other humans? He'd give Lilliana two days.

    A Rebel's Heart (Ashwood Falls 3.5) by Lia Davis
    Sarah has been struggling without her mate for 5 years. All her children are grown and with their own families now. She is ready to give up. Until she gets a death threat - go figure. Now she is fighting back for her life and for love.
    Favorite quote: "I'll take my chances. I was you, Sarah. I've always wanted you."

    Destined for Eden (Shadows of Destiny #5.5) by Leia Shaw
    Eden is a lone werewolf in a shifter colony. She has never fit in. Dalton is a shifter (preferring a grizzly bear or bird-hawk/falcon). He had his heart crushed three years ago and has never recovered. They have a great argumentative loving banter between them even though they just met. What happens when they are thrown together in a rebel mission to save their colony? 
    Favorite quote: "Heel?" he said, taking a step toward her. "Did you really just tell me to heel?"

    I Also Recommend:

    This is a great anthology of five paranormal stories by Carrie A

    This is a great anthology of five paranormal stories by Carrie Ann Ryan, Rebecca Royce, Lia Davis, and Marie Hart.
    In His Choice, a Dante’s Circle story, Fawkes one of Lucifer’s sons has a life decision to make. Meeting his mate, Leslie, a traumatized submissive wolf could make all the difference in the world to him.  There was a couple of misses in the dialogue that I stumbled over, but they were minor and did not take away from this unique world that the author has created.  
    In Beasts of Burden, a standalone story,  Eira, a Valkyrie, is attacked at a gathering of the gods and goddesses and is rescued by her mates, Hall and Avarr, battlecats that protect Freya.  There is lots of hot and steamy sex in this mythological world created by Marie Harte with unique twists that keep the reader well engaged and entertained. 
    In Alpha Rising, a Fallen Alpha story, Rebecca Royce introduces a new world of shifters as the Alpha of the Pennsylvania Pack meets his mate, Lilliana, while trying to negotiate peace with the alpha of another pack. Along with the hot scenes, this story has lots of tension and suspense that keeps the reader intrigued.
    In A Rebel’s Heart, a story in the Ashwood Falls series, the reader is once again drawn deeper into the drama of this shifter town.  The Onyx Pack’s attacks have caused mayhem and more damage with their attacks than even they know as Nevan & Graham’s mom, Sarah is attacked and an old friend, Damian shows up to protect her.   
    In Destined for Eden, a Shadows of Destiny story, Lia Davis has once again created a unique paranormal world that entertains the reader with its magical drama, action and suspense.  
    Each of these stories had strong and bewitching main characters and secondary characters. Although they could have been longer, the stories and worlds created by the authors are imaginative and entertaining. And I am looking forward to reading more by each of these authors.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: Over all 4 1/2 REVIEW:  All reviews of each no

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: Over all 4 1/2
    REVIEW: 
    All reviews of each novella will be short and sweet just like the stories. 

    His Choice by Carrie Ann Ryan: 
    I loved Fawkes & Leslie’s story. But like any good novella I really wish the story was longer. I would have love to see more interaction between Fawkes & Leslie. If you have not read any of Carrie Ann’s Dante’s Circle book never fear you can read His Choice by itself, but I would encourage you to start from the beginning. 

    Beasts of Burden by Marie Harte: 
    This was my first Marie Harte story and as I started Beasts of Burden I was excited about the world she created. What I was not expecting was the M/M/F relationship. I guess I didn’t read the blurb very well. But that being said I enjoyed this novella and will be add Marie to my read list. 

    Alpha Rising by Rebecca Royce:
    Again this was my first Rebecca Royce story and I loved it. I so love Travis. He is a total Alpha but goes all soft for his mate. I am really excited to see where this new series goes and will be adding Rebecca’s to my must read list. Also can’t wait to see what is in store for the Cryus and his sister Lake (I know what an awesome name for a heroine right?)

    A Rebel’s Heart by Lia Davis: 
    Again my first Lia Davis book. I have the other Ashwood books, but have not read yet after reading A Rebel’s Heart I am very much looking forward to going back and reading the series from the beginning. I really loved Damian & Sarah. Damian is a very sweet, selfless man and I am so glad that he finally got what he has always wanted. Sarah has has so much heartbreak over the years I am glad that it looks like she will have her happily ever after finally. 

    Destined for Eden by Leia Shaw:
    Again this was another first read. I really loved Dalton & Eden. Both have been burned in the past by people they cared about. But when they meet something shifts between them. I really enjoyed the Eden was so strong, independent and determined despite the hand the life has dealt her. I am looking forward to going back and reading the rest of the Shadows of Destiny series.

    If you are looking for some great novella reads I would highly recommend you put Ever After on your to purchase watch list. It is very much worth it. 

    Disclaimer: 
    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

    I had to get this book because I fell in love with Fawkes in Her

    I had to get this book because I fell in love with Fawkes in Her Warriors Three Wished and I have an obsession with the Dante's Circle Series.




    What would you do if everyone who wanted you only wanted you to fulfill their own needs and desires?  




    Leslie has been through hell on earth over the past year. Her brother tried to force her into a mating with their packs Beta named Hunter only to have it blow up in his face when she revealed the location where they were hiding Becca his true mate.  Leslie's brother would have been happy to have taken her life for her betrayal to him.  The other pack members wanted to use her for mating because of her bloodline and then throw her away. Damaged did not even come close to describe how Leslie felt about herself. 




    Fawkes was spawn of the devil, literally.  It was his destiny to walk on earth taking millions of souls devouring the human race.  His birthday was coming up and he had a choice to make.  Did he become his father's ultimate soul catcher or was there another option.  Fawkes saw his demon friend Balin find his true mates and escape the bowels of hell.  Could he be that lucky and where would he start to look for her?




    The thing about destiny is that no matter what you do you can never tell when it will sneak up on you.  




    Carrie Ann Ryan is masterful when it come to character development.  Your heart can't help but break for Leslie and what she has been through and you really do hope that Fawkes can find his other half.    She does and excellent job at packing a ton of spice with action adventure in this shorter novella.  I reads just like a full length novel, and you do not feel like you are missing anything. I am hoping to see more of Fawkes and Leslie in Tangled Innocence coming next year.  Thank Goddess that I have the Redwood Pack Series to hold me over for until then.  




    If you like a sinfully sexy story that will have you panting like a wolf, then you will love Ever After.
