Overview

This book contains the following novellas: "Hard as a Rock", "Between a Rock and a Hard Place", "Protect and Service", "Seduced by Santa", and "Close Protection". If you already own these books, please do not purchase this title. The first five books in the PPA series now bundled together!


'Hard as a Rock'

Iliona's had a rough day, so the last thing she wants is a whiny ex on her doorstep throwing accusations about which of her co-workers she's sleeping with. When he starts throwing punches and one of her hunky gargoyle co-workers rushes to her rescue, Iliona is more interested in what exactly he's been doing on the ledge outside her bedroom window... And whether he's interested in more than watching.

'Between a Rock and a Hard Place'

There's nothing like a bit of Gargoyle lovin'... Unless it's double the lovin'

Iliona is used to dealing with all kinds of paranormals thanks to her job with the Paranormal Protection Agency. Even so, an office break in by a banshee nearly has her heading for the pearly gates, and she needs a little 'me time' with her live-in, live on the building lover, a gargoyle named Cal.

But Cal's got some plans of his own. Plans that involve Iliona, a candle-lit room and some up close and personal time with himself and his 'twin' Granite.

Two sets of hands, two ridged tongues, two hot bodies...Being caught between a rock and a hard place has never been so hot.

'Protect and Service'

Eloise is a woman on a mission. She needs to find a date for the annual hospital ball, and fast. The trouble is she's not only man-free but after her bastard of an ex had a nasty little curse hurled her way, no human guy will touch her with a barge-pole.

Out of options, Eloise ends up at the offices of the Paranormal Protection Agency. She's not sure what to expect but she certainly doesn't expect Jared Stone. No-one expects Stone...

'Seduced by Santa'

A woman determined to spread the Christmas spirit...

Former socialite turned community centre worker Candice Kane loves Christmas. In the run down area she works in, economics and rising unemployment mean that there isn't a lot of Christmas spirit to go around. Determined to do something about it, for the last couple of years she's arranged a Christmas Party, complete with a visit from Santa for the neighbourhood kids. This year though, a break in and damage from vandals means the party could be cancelled...

A Santa who hates Christmas...

Rhod is...was a Santa. For years he joined the other men in his family delivering presents, until the attitude and ungratefulness of the rich children he delivered to made him hang up his red suit. Working for the Paranormal Protection Agency, he's convinced himself that he's happier without being the big guy anymore.

When he and his partner rescue Candy from an attack in a deserted alley, all Rhod's decisions are put to the test. Can he hold out against a woman with Christmas spirit in her heart, or will he lose his own in the process?

'Close Protection'

Ashlee Bishop is a bar owner. She was a happy bar owner until a bunch of pixies turned up demanding protection money. As a garden-variety human, she knows she doesn't have the ability to deal with the pixies, so she calls in the Paranormal Protection Agency to sort the problem out.

What she doesn't expect is for the pixies to come back before the agency can get to the bar, or the hot as hell werewolf who shows and starts teaching pixies how to fly. The hard way.

She certainly doesn't expect to be able to command his wolf...

Wow very hot steamy read Each story was interesting in its own way and had different heat or humor levels for all. All the paranormals were mainly different to the usual you can read but they were highly intriguing, i would mind meeting myself a gargoyle :)

Wow! This one is SUPER HOT!! You definitely need a glass of ice water or a cold shower on hand! This is chock full of sexy alpha males and strong female characters. I like how all 5 stories connect but you don't need to necessarily read them all together. Only the first 2 stories are about the same couple per say. Lots of different paranormals throughout. All are extremely sexy stories but full of humor. I can't wait to read more from this author!

I'm Not going to reveal any spoilers. This book features books 1-5 of the Paranormal protection agency series by Mina Carter.  My overall impression: It was an extremely well written and well thought out series.The stories are quick reads but in my opinion that is a good thing. Especially for women who have lots they have to do such as working and looking after the kids.I would have plowed through this in one day if not for my children, but it's fine because I can get to the end of a part and put it down and come back to it. The characters were amazing to meet. The men were strong and domineering. The women were sometimes equally as strong but just needed a bit of brute strength in assistance.  The love scenes were hot hot hot. The men sexy, the women wanton. I loved it.  I'd definitely advise you buy this and read it. You won't be disappointed.

This is a fun, action packed series with plenty of sexy heat. Not for 18 or under or those with delicate sensibilities. If you like paranormal creatures and their human lovers you will enjoy this collection.

5 really fun but incredibly short stories with great sex. Book was about 155 pages on my nook

Short and definitely HOT! The book includes 5 short stories that are interconnected, which makes it more interesting. Despite the limited introductions, the author was able to build the characters enough for you to understand their current situations. Short stories has its downside as well, and for this one, each story has more steamy scenes (60-70%) than the real story itself. It would have been much better if each story has more details like how do the PPA starts, how did the people accept the paranormal, when did they come out of the open, etc. Highly recommended to those who wants something sexy and steamy before bedtime.

I love everyone of these stories, all connected by the agency, the para's have come out of the closet and they are coming to work. The first two stories are related so I'll do them together, both involve Gargoyles, not a usual paranormal in a story but if I met one like Cal or Gran I'd be converted to their side because they are hard as rock, quite literally too.  Ilona and Cal are the stars of the first story, and together they get quite heated, like molten rock one could say, then when Gran joins in the second story the temperature soars even higher if possible.  The characters from previous stories make cameos in the continuing series which is something that I like catching up with old friends but meeting new ones. Eloise has a problem, her ex has put a curse on anyone who go outs with her, but she needs a date so what's a girl to do but get some werewolf protection, and wow is it some kind of protection, heating up the dance floor before they make it home and heat up even more, and Jared Stone ladies man extraordinaire has finally met his match.  I love the para's that star in this series they are not just your wolves or vamps but a few others thrown in for interest, like Rhod Claus who yes is one of those Claus's but he has had enough, no more Christmas for him, until he meets a sweet young lady named, I love this, Candy Kane. He's hooked she's saved and he dons the suit once again out of love.  So what do you do when pixies start tormenting your bar, you call the Paranormal Protection Agency, well that's what Ashlee does at the end of her rope she reaches out and gets Zane, a alpha werewolf, but how can she control his wolf, and after making it totally obvious what she thinks of wolves can they ever make it up, or will pixies fly before they do. All the stories are short but steaming hot and this is a wonderful way to get your first fix of the agency but it will have you coming back for more without a doubt, as you don't get this mix of humour and steam in many places, throw in the paranormal's and you have a winner. I received a free copy for an honest review.

This series is fun, witty, and hot. I would suggest buying the bundle as each story is a quick read and once I read one story I knew I was going to want to read all. The next in the series "Dragon of Honor" is a good point to jump in if you don't want to buy all until you check and see if you like the author.
