Wow!. I fell in love with Mati and Vaughn in the Bourbon Street Series but I absolutely love them even more now. This is a novella that is about how Mati and Vaughn actually met and kind of gives more details into what happened to Mati in Shadows of Bourbon Street. This book is told in both Mati and Vaughn's point of views. There are a lot of sex scenes in this book which should be expected considering Mati is a sex witch. Anyways this book was amazing, I cant wait for more Mati and Vaughn. I think I may like them more than Jade and Kane now. Wonderful read
Deanna Chase has done it again. This is a spin off novella, hopefully to be a series, from the Jade Calhoun series. Most of the time is right before "Shadows of Bourbon Street" and during. Trust is never easy and when it feels like it was missed used it is hard to get back. Will these two workout? Can things ever be the same? Read and find out. However, I do recommend reading after Jade Calhoun's fifth book. You get a better understanding of what really was going on with Mati and Vaughn. We are seeing what happened to Mati and Vaughn by their point of views. Recommended for eighteen or older should to read because of some very hot steamy scenes between Mati and Vaughn. I loved getting to know them better and I would enjoy reading more books about them or even just Coven Pointe. If you enjoyed reading about Jade and Kane you will love reading about Mati and Vaughn.
I love that Deanna Chase is doing a spin-off of the Jade Calhoun series! What is even better is that it is off to a fantastic start!!! Vaughn and Mati are really interesting and have great chemistry! When you mix in a super exciting storyline, you get the great book that you usually get from Deanna Chase. I have a feeling Coven Pointe has a whole lot of really good tales to share with us, and I can't wait to read them! While this is considered a novella, it is just as thrilling as a book, and it pairs up extremely well with Shadows of Bourbon Street. It was awesome reading the events that happened in Shadows from some different perspectives. I also really enjoyed how the story moved between Vaughn and Mati's characters. Really great!
Another great book from Deanna Chase! The Jade Calhoun series is one of my favorites and it was nice to see how Mati and Vaughn got to the point in book 5.There was a couple of "wow" moments which I loved.Really hope we see more of these two!
I love the Jade Calhoun Series and I'm so happy to see new characters introduced in the last book. This book is about two of those new characters. Matisse and Vaughn. We find out how they met and how their relationship got to the point it did in book 5. The story is written from both characters point of view. So we get a clear understanding of each characters inner struggle and draw to each other. Another great story from Chase!
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle: --Actual rating 4.5 Skulls Marked by Temptation was a great novella in the JADE CALHOUN world. It can easily be read as a standalone,especially since the characters are actually from different covens and groups than the main characters of the full length novels. The ending was an awesome 'ah ha' moment that is segueing Angels of Bourbon Street (#4) with Shadows of Bourbon Street (#5) though, and the introduction and meshing of the characters from the New Orleans coven and the Coven Point coven was awesome. I loved Mati and Vaughn! Mati is a confident, powerful woman and she just so happens to be a sex witch and sister to the head angel of the Angel Council. She's on a classified mission for her sister, and in order to accomplish what she has to do, she must charge up. Enter Vaughn... Vaughn is the ultimate alpha male. Sexy as sin, confident but not annoyingly cocky, successful, and protective. He's a bounty hunter working for his brother and the Witch Council, but when Mati and Vaughn's gazes connect across a crowded bar, all bets are off. Instant smoking chemistry and the scenes that ensue are H.O.T! The sexiness of this novella shocked me a bit, I'll be honest. I was used to the more Urban Fantasy Romance feel of the previous Jade Calhoun novels, and this one was *really* sexy. It completely fit the characters, however, and was beautifully written. I would highly recommend this to all JADE CALHOUN fans, the intrigue and twist was great after the ending of book #4, and I can't wait to see how Deanna ties everything in to book #5. I also recommend it for any readers looking for a fun, sassy, sexy PNR novella.
