Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus is my first Dragon shifter book. I wasn’t sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Katie always takes me on a rush of action and adventure as well as steamy passion in her books and this one was no different.
In Taste of Darkness, Drake, a Dragon shifter, is still figuring out the human world after being imprisoned in hell for thousands of years with Demons and the like. He has found his mate in Victoria, a wolf shifter, who is helping him along the way. Her pack took him in and consider him family now. One other issue for Drake is that he doesn’t remember much of anything before he was sacrificed at the age of 12. So, trust is hard for him. Even when his brother and sister come looking for him.
Loved. This. Book. Bound to Danger by Katie Reus is why I read romantic suspense. It is an emotional ride that will have you on the edge of your seat during the action scenes and your heart melting during the passionate ones. The plot engages you from the beginning and has you turning pages quickly. The only problem I had reading Bound to Danger is that sometimes the danger would get to a point that I didn’t want to go any further in the book out of fear for the characters, yet I had to find out what was going to happen.
In Bound to Danger, Cade works for the NSA and takes on a job involving Maria, a girl he fell for eight years prior, but hasn’t seen since. There is a lot of complicated history between them (well, not really, but Cade makes it complicated), so when Cade is assigned to protect Maria, it is quite intersting.
I just love the Red Stone Security Series by Katie Reus. The premise of a Security Agency made up of ex-military or law enforcement officials now forming a private security firm is fascinating to me. They are often security detail for high profile people and cases which increases the action and suspense most of the time. Sinful Seduction is the eighth and latest book in the series. While it is great to read about characters from past books, you can read them individually and enjoy them just as much!
Alex Blue (aka Blue) is enjoying time out one night when he witnesses an attempted kidnapping. He springs into action and saves Mina while chasing away the kidnappers off. From that moment on, the two are virtually inseparable. Blue feels the need to protect her since she has not hired any security detail (even though she is an heiress and felt as though she was living a low key life). Mina is just fine with Blue hanging around until they sort out the details.
Sweetest Surrender by Katie Reus is the third book in The Serafina: Sin City Series and follows true to the other books in the series. The romance is a little more prevalent than the suspense, as the story is focused on the characters. If you like lighter romantic suspense with some very hot love scenes, this book is for you!
Sweet Surrender is Vadim and Angel’s story. Vadim is one of Wyatt Christensen’s (Breaking Her Rules) security personnel and Angel works in the kitchen. They have been friends for awhile but it takes an “event” to push them into something more. I enjoyed the overall story, but not as much as I have some of Katie’s other stories. I think I prefer her longer, full length novels to the shorter ones. The character and plot development are a bit stronger in my opinion.
I just finished Sensual Surrender by Katie Reus and I am so glad I have found such an awesome romantic suspense author. I love that Katie can write both long and short stories with varying levels of suspense. Sensual Surrender was more about the characters than the suspenseful plot of the story. The story was laid out for us so there was not a lot of suspense, except for the little twist at the end. However, I enjoy reading different types of romantic suspense and this one fit the bill for a short, lighter romantic suspense story.
Sensual Surrender is the second in The Serafina: Sin City Series and I really enjoyed it. There was a perfect balance of story and intimacy and fit the characters and plot well. Although this book is part of a series, it stands on its own. However, I always enjoy books in a series because I get to see what former characters are up to. It’s like seeing old friends!
