EXCERPT

"So what's this plan you've come up with?"

She frowned for a split second. "Cards. I can win it."

Of all the answers he'd considered, that was not on the list. "Cards? Like poker?"

She nodded.

"Are you any good?"

There was a long pause. She stared into his eyes, confidence coming to her like a gossamer cloak. Then she gave a single, succinct nod. "Yes."

If that was the case, why had he never seen her before? Well, she was young. And he'd been out of the hunt for a while.

"You really think you can win two and a half million dollars at the poker tables?" Hell, he'd been a professional for ten years and the most he'd ever won in a single event was twelve. She'd have to play high.

"Two and a half --"

He watched worry, anxiety, and disbelief flash across her face. It was there in her eyes, the pinch of her brow, the microscopic movements in the muscles around her seductive mouth. But there was something else too. Regret maybe? Pain?

Then her lips flattened into a kissable line and she pulled her shoulders down and back. Her chin came up and her confidence came back.

"I have to."

He liked her determination. She took responsibility for her situation, and had come up with this solution. Flawed as it was. He gave her a single nod to show her he understood.

"Where will you go? Monte Carlo?" And why was it on the tip of his tongue to tell her he'd be happy to take her anywhere she wanted? Why did he feel so goddamn protective where she was concerned?

Her icy-blue eyes focused on him. For a brief second, he felt cold. Then hot. She licked her lips again.

"Mystic Isle."

Oh hell.

Editorial Reviews

reader review - Karen Roma
Mystic Isle has the right amount of mystery, drama, excitement and smokin' hot sex to keep readers coming back for more. Too bad [Selena] can't write them faster.

I've read the previous two books in this series and I must say this one is by far the best. I never thought that another series would captivate me as mush as the Stormy Weather series did but this one by far has. I love how Ms Blake pairs the mates with exacty what the female lead needs. In this case Izzy who was subjected to horrors that shouldn't even be dreamt of in your worst enemys nightmares at the hands of a warewolf while her boyfriend runs away like a coward and leaves her for dead, dealing with man issues!, trust issues vamp issues, impulse control issues... meets trust and falls in love. Well deserved. Read it. It.Will.Not.Dissapoint.

**I received a copy of this book for an honest review** I am LOVING this series!!  *Sighs* If only Mystic Isle really existed, lol. An Island where all of the supes go hang out to chill and have all kinds of hook ups, yea totally awesome! Though Izzy & Shade do not meet on the Island, their relationship definitely takes a turn for the better while they are there. Izzy needs to make enough money to replace her friend’s car that she wrecked while taking out for a joy ride, so she goes to Mystic Isle to win the poker tournament. Little did she know that the hottie who saved her after the accident is the number one Demon to beat. I like the story, I think it’s a pretty fun and exciting background for the relationship between Izzy & Shade, it fits them perfectly. Even though they feel an instant connection, their relationship still takes a little time to flourish, Izzy has trust issues and what for what happened in her past, I don’t blame her. And Shade, has a shady past (lol pun intended), so he thinks he’s undeserving and doesn’t want to scare her away by moving too fast or by making any wrong moves.  Izzy is too funny and a perfect combination of sweet & sassy, while Shade is a totally delicious demon with a sweet and caring side. They are absolutely perfect for each other. And after the tournament Izzy comes face to face with her troubled past, and I have to say, I was 100% gratified with how she reacted. If I could have given her a high five, I would have lol. It’s a must read!   P.S. I’m hoping that Charles Latham gets a story of his own; I’d like to see who can handle the God, lol.

I really wish I could have given this a better review. Particularly after reading some of the other reviews. For me, this was NOT the best book in the series. The book was not well-edited. So poorly that I had difficulty understanding some of the sentences. The characters started off well, but then fizzled into a quick little round up. And the ending just dropped. I really wanted it to be better. I did. And I think there was potential in it, but it just didn't happen for me. Disappointed.

Games Demons Play (Mystic Isle) I first fell in love with Selena's Stormy Weather series. Now I am in love with her Mystic Isle series. I read the first two and was waiting for this one to come out. You have Shade, a demon and Izzy, a vamp and let me tell you, they are hot together. Their sex scenes were so passionate. Shade was such a hero, rescuing Izzy many times. He was the perfect man for her, so caring. She needed someone like that after her horrendous past(read the books if you want to know her back story). I was laughing at some of the scenes during the poker tournament. And what a revelation at the end of the book about her true heritage. I cannot wait for the other 2 books in this series. Great work Selena!!!

I think it was a good book, though not as good as the first two. It felt a lot shorter than the first two and I ended up with more questions about Izzy when I finished the book. The story was enjoyable though and I look forward to the continuation of this series (but it was not better than her Stormy Weather series. I still think about those characters and wonder what's new with them).

Another great book in this series.  I hope that after everyone has their own books she will write another one that includes everyone, kind of as a follow up.  Can't wait for the next book!!
