Shadow monsters, undead relatives, and a bodice that cuts into her boobs—in Avery’s opinion, the faerie realm isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Supposedly, it was Avery’s fate to journey to the Evermist. Here, she’s regarded as a symbol of hope and everyone has expectations of her, including her three guardians. While she hadn’t expected an amusement park full of little girls in princess dresses, Avery also hadn’t expected to be scared at every turn. But the Evermist is full of cruel monsters and terrifying shadows.

As Avery navigates her new role, her deepening relationship with her guardians, and a wardrobe full of beautiful-yet-uncomfortable dresses, she’ll have to make choices that will have repercussions worlds away.

With intrigues and betrayals at every corner, Avery will need to explore her magic and strength to fight the evil that has taken over the realm of her ancestors.

The second book in the Lost Siren series, Lullaby of Death is a steamy reverse harem adventure that will take you far from the familiar and into a magical yet dangerous land.

When we left Avery she was alone by the portal in Evermist, this book starts right there and it’s been hours and still no sign of her guys. Just when she’s given up they are coming, she’s approached by a man she thinks at first is Charles. He’s a bit of a jerk and he’s to bring her to the Castle. His name is Malek and he’s Charles’ half brother. Avery doesn’t trust him after he tries to make her think he’s Charles, but she knows she can’t stay where she is with no shelter overnight.

The journey to the Castle was tense and all Avery wants is to be with her guys. The Queen isn’t so accommodating though, instead sending her to her room situated next door to Lysander’s. Also there were orders to keep her from Charles and mention of a woman Savannah. It’s Malek to informs her Savannah is Charles’ betrothed, but leaves out it was arranged when they were but children.

After a bit of a pity party, Avery decides to go find her men. She finds an ally in Bell, a niece of the Queen. Malek intercepts them before Avery could get Bell to take her where the guys might be. He finds suitable clothing for her to wear and takes her to where Charles, Tarin and Lysander are meeting with the Queen. Although the Queen is a bit peeved over it she dismissed all but Marek and Charles.

This is a favorite scene.

“I thought you were rotting in some dungeon!” I half-shouted, half-laughed. I shook with relief and the sudden absence of adrenaline. I wouldn’t have to break them out of the Queen’s prison cells. No more fighting today.

Tarin grabbed my wrists and held me in place, giving Lysander the perfect opportunity to snake his arms around my waist from behind. He pulled me against his hard chest and even harder cock. Wow, if my mere presence aroused him this much, what would happen once we retreated to my room?

“I missed you, little siren,” he whispered and gently dragged his fangs across the nape of my neck. A shudder ran down my back and I couldn’t help but lean into his touch. In this moment, I wanted nothing more than for him to bite me.

“Didn’t Charles’s brother tell you that we were in a meeting with the Queen?” Tarin asked, still holding my wrists. His eyes were burning with something that I couldn’t quite identify, but his voice was calm.

“He forgot to mention that,” I hissed, looking around for that bloody faerie, but he had quietly disappeared. Good, he’d escaped my wrath for now. I wouldn’t forget this, though. It may have been fun for him to play with my feelings, but it hadn’t been fun for me. He’d made me think that my guys were in trouble and that I was all alone. Bastard.

“I thought he looked a bit shifty.” Lysander licked my skin where his fangs had likely left some red scratches. Surprisingly, I didn’t mind at all. The happiness at seeing them again seemed to be messing with my mind.

Tarin lifted my left hand to his lips and pressed a tiny kiss on my knuckles, barely touching me, yet for him, it was as if he’d French kissed me with tongue and all. Was that passion in his eyes? Really? I decided Tarin and I would need some alone time soon to decipher our strange relationship.

“Are these your boyfriends?” a bright voice called from the other end of the corridor. I didn’t pay Bell any attention, but Tarin let go of my wrists and waved at her.

“Hey, little one.”

“I’m not little.”

“Yes, you are. You’d reach up to my navel, maybe? Definitely little. You’re the Queen’s niece, aren’t you?”

“How do you know who she is?” I asked. “Have you been here before?”

“Every pret knows the important people in the Evermist,” he explained as if that was obvious. “We grew up learning the names of royalty, politicians, leaders, and heirs. I may have never seen her, but she looks exactly like she does in the pictures. The blue hair kind of gives it away.”

“I’m important,” Bell confirmed chirpily. “I’m next in line to the throne.”

“Wait, isn’t that Charles?” I asked.

“It’s a matriarchy,” Tarin said. “I see we neglected your Evermist education.”

“It’s not like we had any time for that.” Lysander stopped licking my neck just long enough to say the words. It was strangely relaxing, even though I had to admit it was also a little gross. Was he preparing me for a bite?

“True. Fucking nerises got in the way.”

“Nerises?” Bell asked, her voice full of astonishment. “Real nerises?”

“Not anymore,” I chuckled darkly. “We killed them all.” Tarin snorted. “Technically we just swore an oath to the Queen not to tell anyone about that.”

“Well, she didn’t deign to tell me about that, so that doesn’t apply to me. Why didn’t she do this meeting for all four of us, anyway? And why didn’t we all land here together?”

“Let’s talk somewhere more private.” Tarin’s gaze flicked to Bell, who was still standing behind Lysander and me. “And I’m starving. Politics always make me hungry.”

“I’m thirsty,” Lysander whispered. My insides melted at the heat in his voice. I knew he wasn’t talking about water.

“Stop it, Ly. Get a grip,” Tarin admonished him. “I know it’s hard to focus, but we have things to discuss.”

“I can listen while I drink,” Lysander drawled, but with one last scorching kiss, he let go of me. My back instantly felt cold without his touch.

Reacquainting myself with the guys had instantly become number one on my list of priorities, far above figuring out my role in Evermist, what Marek was up to, how I’d get the Queen to see me as more than her puppet, and all the other issues that had arisen in the few hours since I’d arrived here. Wow, things were getting off to a busy start. Life in Evermist wasn’t going to be a holiday, that much was for sure. And I hadn’t even met another siren yet, let alone travelled to wherever the sirens lived.

Lysander took my hand and pulled me along, clearly desperate to get to a private place. Tarin followed us, as did Belle. She’d be disappointed once the guys closed the door in her face, but we really didn’t need a pre-teen watching us. She’d been helpful earlier and I’d make sure to keep her on my side, but right now, I had other things on my mind. Namely Lysander’s hard cock, his fangs, and—

“Wait!” Charles shouted from behind us.

I wriggled out of the vampire’s grasp and ran the way we’d come until I was in Charles’s strong arms. He hugged me tight, burrowing his face in my hair. I breathed in his ocean-side scent. Finally, I had all three of them with me again.

A aching hole in my chest, one I hadn’t even noticed until now, slowly closed, pushed shut by the happiness I felt at our reunion. Even though we’d only been together for such a short time, the three men had become part of me.

A wave of siren magic shot through my body and I felt my hair stand on end, as if I’d poked my finger into an electric socket. Pure power filled me, caressed me, begged to be used.

I had no need of it, though. This wasn’t a battle, there were no enemies to fight. The magic pressed against my skin, its begging turning into a demand.


“I might have a small problem,” I said, then clenched my teeth as I realised that talking distracted me from keeping a hold on all that power.

“I can feel it,” Charles said and stepped back, breaking our hug.

As soon as his touch disappeared, the pressure in me lessened a little, just enough to give me space to breathe.

“What’s going on?” Lysander was by my side in an instant. I hadn’t even seen him move.

“My magic… too much…”

Tarin appeared to my right, but he didn’t touch me. None of them did. I looked down at myself and gasped at the glow coming from my skin. I was glowing like a fucking lightbulb.

“I know what to do,” Tarin said. “Follow me.”

Charles reached for my hand, but as soon as we made contact, the pressure started building again.

I yanked my palm away from his. “What’s happening to me?”

“You’re going to be fine, lass,” Tarin said. “Trust me.”

This is just the beginning of many unsatisfying meetings with the Queen. The introduction to Savannah was interesting to say the least, and there’s a bit of thievery and a rescue involved in that. Then there’s Malek who it seems Avery is attracted to in spite of their initial meeting. A prophesy told by Queen Moira is expanded on by Avery. Now things must be done, a quest of sorts, in order to save Evermist. In order to accomplish this she needs to get a handle on her powers so they travel to the Siren stronghold. Where we sort of meet her ancestors, and actually meet the folks holding everything together, for her.

From here things escalate quickly and viciously. Lots of action, surprises, and did I mention the sizzling heat, since Avery and her men can’t seem to keep their hands off each other unless they’re fighting…

I really can’t wait for the next book, there are many unanswered questions.

My teacher is trying to kill me…

My mates and I are on the run while trying to figure out why our professor wants me dead. Not exactly the punishment I expected for botching an assignment.

To get our happy end on a luxury resort planet, we may have to do the one thing I don’t want my mates to do: abduct another alien.

When the abductee becomes the abductor, something is seriously wrong with the universe.

The third and final part of Trish and her mates’ story, a steamy reverse harem romance.

Barnes and Noble logo_150 KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002

Professor Katila has finally lost her mind. In the first pages of this book her boyfriends Hex and Hix break up with her in public where she can’t make a scene. Furious she plots revenge involving our favorite abductors and abductee.

The Jade is fending off a vicious attack when the professor shows up on the screen. The only way not to die in this situation is to agree to whatever she wants them to do. That being another abduction, this time of an alien.

Instead of just quietly accepting their fate, they start doing research on the professor to see why she wants Hix and Hex abducted. When they try to report her to the university they response from Katila is swift and hurtful.

With no choice left they fix the damage done to the Jade and proceed to the home planets of their targets. Finding them was easier than expected and the abduction goes without a hitch. Once Hix and Hex regain consciousness they tell their story of the relationship and their plans should Katila retaliate as she has.

This is a favorite scene.

“There’s no way we’re going to return you to her,” Tricia said with determination. She stared at me, as if expecting me to protest, but I had already come to the same conclusion. Handing them over to that crazed female was as bad as abusing them ourselves.

“That’s very kind of you, human,” Hex said and shot her a warm look. “But we always knew this moment would come. We’ve been waiting for it. And we’ve not been sitting around idle while back on our home planet. We came up with a plan long ago. Now we just need your help to put it into action.”

“What plan?” I asked, reminding them that I was the one they had to convince.  

“What matters most to Kat – besides her offspring fantasy – is her work.   Without it, she’s nothing. No influence, no power, no purpose. So, we’re going to take it all away from her.”

“We already tried reporting her to the IGU authorities. In return, she destroyed our brain slugs, making us unable to communicate with our mate for a while,” I said, my heart sinking at how useless their plan was. I’d expected something more from these two clearly intelligent academics. They’d had time to come up with a really good plan and all they had was the idea to destroy Katila’s klatting reputation? Bah.

“We have evidence,” Hix grinned slyly. “We’ve got enough to get her in front of a tribunal. Maybe even a criminal trial, if we send this to the right people. She’s bent a lot of rules over the years. Ignored student welfare. Even endangered her students.”

“You could say that” Matar interrupted. “She klatting shot at us.”

Hex nodded, which looked a little weird considering that Hix’s head stayed in the same position. “We can add your recordings of that to our files. That will make it even more damning. The juiciest bit however is that we were her students when she first started having sexual relations with us. Of course, we were willing and over age, but the IGU strictly forbids relationships between staff and students. Add to that the fact that she handcuffed us to a bed, robbing us of our freedom, plus threatening to physically harm us… it’s not looking good for her. Especially because we filmed it all.”

Trish gasped. “You’ve got it on camera?”

The torso-brothers grinned. “We knew she was going to cross a line,” Hix explained. “So, we installed a hidden camera in our bedroom. To be honest, we’d assumed she’d try and do worse than just handcuff us. Still, it was a good decision. We recorded some of her craziest outbursts, ready to be sent to Professor Z, the IGU headmaster. Once he sees that, she’ll be without a job.”

I shook my head. “That doesn’t sound like a good plan to me at all. So what, she’ll be out of work. What will stop her from coming after us, after you? I bet she had a good salary and has saved enough to pay for some space pirates to attack the Jade.”

Hex wasn’t dismayed by my scepticism. “There’s a paragraph in the IGU contract which states that whoever will fall foul of the University’s rules and regulations forfeits any salary paid to them in the past, as well as assigned accommodation. Her bank account will be empty. She won’t have the means to take revenge. She’ll be powerless.”

“I say we kill her,” Matar muttered. I was tempted to agree with him, as tasteless as that option was. Neither of us were murderers, but we’d do whatever we had to in order to keep our mate safe. Trish was our priority.

Hix and Hex looked shocked at the idea. “We loved her, once,” Hix said, putting a lot of emphasis on the l-word. “She did horrible things, but we could never kill her. That’s not our way.”  

“No killing,” Trish confirmed.  

“No killing,” I repeated as the responsible, dutiful Captain I was. “But let’s not make it too easy on her. We need to thoroughly destroy her until she regrets all she’s done.”

“I want her to beg us to take her in,” Hix said darkly. “I want her to repent and apologise.”

Trish laughed. “I can’t see her apologising for anything. She’s not that kind of person.”

“You’re right,” Hex confirmed. “It will be a new learning experience for her. Apologising 101.”

I really loved meeting the head of the university as well as seeing all the events leading to the fall of the professor. Finally Trish and her mates get their revenge and their honeymoon.

This book is fun, action-filled, and kindle melting. I can’t wait to see what Skye has in store for us next.

Sexy aliens searching for their fated mates, finding them on Earth…and abducting them!

All hunky aliens know Earth is the best place to find a mate. But convincing human women to leave their home planet isn’t always easy.

So what’s an alien in love to do?

Sweep his mate off her feet, of course. Literally. Then take her to his spaceship and seduce her so they can live happily ever after.

Don’t miss your chance to binge-read this all-new collection of steamy, seductive alien abduction romances by New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors.

Alien Abduction for Pirates
The Intergalactic Guide to Humans
USA Today Bestselling Author
Skye MacKinnon

He never expected her to be his mate…

Aedan and his crew of space pirates are in a bit of a pickle. The authorities have finally caught up with him and he faces years of imprisonment on a prison planet. The only way out: volunteer to teach an Alien Abduction course at the Intergalactic University.

Disillusioned actor May has prayed to be taken away from her miserable life every night since her fiancé died. On the day she decides to end it all, she’s whisked away by aliens. Life couldn’t be better. Of course, she pretends to be an unwilling abduction victim, but really, what could be better than starting a new life among the stars with a hunky purple alien?

This anthology is huge and contains many new to me authors, I started with the author I read all the time and review that one first. I’ll spotlight more once I read them.

Pirate Aeden Xerxi and his crew are in deep trouble when they are apprehended by Lurian enforcers. Now they await their sentencing. The judge is Karangi and if you are following this series you will notice a resemblance to someone. Specifically one Professor Katila. Aeden is concerned for his crew and agree to a longer sentence for himself if the judge reduces there’s to 3 years instead of the 5 just offered. Seeing something in their history the Judge makes a decision to offer them something a bit unusual. It seems the Intergalactic University is seeking a new Alien Abduction teacher. Since he and his crew have on occasion abducted aliens they are the perfect choice for this unique postition.

I have to say Professor Katila seems to have a bit of an obsession with Peritus aka Earth. She seems to send all her students there to do their abductions. With cameras and microphones installed on their ship to record the process for their students, Aeden selects his target.

May is about to end her life, she’s struggled so long and leaving a letter in her suitcase at the Inn she heads to the cliffs. Instead of falling when she steps off she starts flying, well sort of. A tractor type beam has intercepted her and brought her to the ship. Because of the angle she was held her clothing is askew and her breasts are revealed. I laughed out loud at the things Aeden is thinking, but instead of moving forward to the probing they have a problem.

Threatening ships are approaching them and in spite of being told not to say anything, May does the unthinkable and yells out she’s a captive.

This is a favorite scene.

I don’t understand what the aliens from the other ship are saying – only the four aliens around me are speaking English – but they’re my only chance of rescue. I refuse to be probed, dissected and turned into a museum exhibit. It can’t get any worse than this, can it?

Aedan stares at me in anger. His horns seem to bulge from his skull, making him even more intimidating. I shrink away from him, just in case he decides that he wants to do the dissecting before the probing after all. Not long ago, back on Earth, I wanted to die. Now, I have a fierce desire to live. In one piece, without probes, with my body intact, with my freedom unbroken.

The alien from the other ship growls something which makes the four beings around me spring into action. They push buttons, type stuff into their holographic keyboards, and Aedan suddenly wraps an arm around me and pulls me against him.

Obviously, I struggle. Especially when something hard pokes against my back. Please let that not be what I think it is.  

“Stop,” he hisses. “They might try to beam you over, but they can’t while you’re touching me.”

He’s just given me even an even better reason to get away from him. The enemies of my enemies are my friends, right? Aedan and his crew are kidnappers, so the other aliens must be better than that. Maybe they can fly me back down to Earth.  

I pause at that thought. Do I even want to go back?

It doesn’t matter. I certainly don’t want to stay here waiting to be probed. I ram my elbows into Aedan’s chest as hard as I can. He groans, but his grip on me only tightens.

“They’re Pletorians, you idiot. They’ll rape you, beat you, sell you as a slave.”

He could be lying, but the slight panic in his voice tells me otherwise. Fuck. From the frying pan into the fire. That hadn’t been my intention.  

I stop struggling and press closer against him. I don’t want to be beamed to the other alien ship after all. I don’t even mind Aedan’s hard cock against my back. I wonder what it looks like. Will it be human or more… alien? Does he have more than one, maybe? Or is this not a dick but something else entirely? For all I know, his species could reproduce asexually. He might grow a little Aedan somewhere on his body, like in hydra corals. It’s not like I have any clue about aliens. Humans might be the only species that has sex in the entire universe. His cock – well, his hard appendage – jerks against me and I hope to all the Gods that I’m wrong.  

“You cannot have her,” he says loudly while protectively crushing me against his chest. It feels strangely good. It shouldn’t, but it does. “I abducted her. She’s mine.”

“Stealing an abductee would be a serious breach of Intergalactic Law,” the female alien   on the screen adds. I don’t know if she’s talking in English or if her voice is somehow translated, but at least I can understand her, unlike the aliens on the other ship. Just like the two males on the bridge, the female has three eyes. It should look strange, but they somehow suit the shape of her skull. The eye in the centre of her forehead is wide open and doesn’t blink, while the other two could almost pass for human. Her purple skin is paler than that of Aedan and has a beautiful marbled effect, with patterns swirling all over her face and neck. She reminds me a bit of one of my tutors at the Royal Conservatoire – stunning but incredibly stern. An ice queen.

“You are being watched,” she continues. “I am ready to send ships after you should you not retreat at once.”

“This isn’t your remit,” Aedan hisses. “I abducted her, I’m going to protect her. We don’t need your help.”

The female rolls her third eye in exasperation, but doesn’t say anything more.  

The aliens reply in harsh, guttural words that make a shiver run down my back. They don’t sound happy. And somehow, I doubt they’ll simply back down.

“What are they saying?” I whisper.  

One of the two three-eyed males in front of me presses a button and suddenly the harsh sounds turn into English words.  

“… claimed her. Surrender her or be prepared to be obliviated.”

“I’m not going to give her to you. She’s my human. Mine.”

The way he says that makes me clench my thighs together. Goosebumps erupt all over my arms. The way he said that… Mine. I’ve never heard anything this sexy before. It’s like an orgasm embedded in a single syllable. Mine. I want him to say it again.

“Our ships are stronger than yours. We’ll blast you into atoms.” The Pletorian sounds thrilled at the prospect. I wait for Aedan to deny that fact, to say that we outgun them, but he stays quiet. Which means we’re screwed. And all because I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. But then, I was abducted today. I deserve some lenience.  

“Delta-four manoeuvre?” the female on the bridge, one with yellow skin and fangs that look like they could easily rip a chunk out of me, asks in a whisper.  

“Do it,” Aedan commands. “May, prepare yourself. This might be a little uncomfortable.”

With no further warning, the galaxy expands right inside my stomach, tearing me apart.
Skye MacKinnon. Alien Abduction for Pirates: The Intergalactic Guide to Humans (Kindle Locations 274-315). Peryton Press.

Lots of Star Trek references here have me giggling when May is surprised they have no idea what she’s talking about. Also the defensive maneuver they execute makes her sick. The cure, well lets just say things heat up really fast from here, beginning with the probing.

Lots of fun, plenty of laughs and kindle melting heat!

Being probed by aliens was only the beginning…

I was abducted by incompetent aliens. They didn’t know what they were doing and they still don’t have a clue. Now that we’re done with all the probing, they’re taking lessons in ‘Caring for Vulnerable Females’ and ‘Nest Building for Beginners’ and want to turn me into their mate.

And no, they don’t listen when I tell them I don’t need a nest.

In theory, I could fall for these three hunky aliens who can bring me more pleasure than I ever dreamed of, but we’re being watched and analysed every minute of the day. A creepy professor from the Intergalactic University uses us as examples for her lessons, sometimes with dangerous consequences, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

I don’t want to be a science experiment, but can I resist falling for the aliens who stole me from Earth?

In order to get a passing grade and their certificate from IGU, Xil, Matar, Havel and their abductee Trish, have agreed to be a case study for Professor Katila’s class Alien Abduction for Professionals. The first lesson in this course is taking your abductee to a public place. Apparently to see if you they could control jealousy. They decide to take her shopping on Kitt-Y-6, where there is quite the diversity of items for Trish to choose from.

Of course there is almost a screw up from the start as they are accused of not having the correct paperwork and need to be scanned. After that the first thing that attracts Trish is the combination of many foods, but it is Pikis that the guys gravitate to and buy a lot of. Havel and Xil want to look at technology so Matar continues to stroll through the booths with Trish. When she sees the pet vendor she is drawn to it and Matar knows he’s in trouble.

Trish gravitated toward the tribbits that reminded her of rabbits. Fortunately Matar remembers Xil had mentioned them and said she could have one.

This is one of my favorite scenes.

To my relief, Trish ignored both the aaven and the loovins. Instead, she stared at the tribitts housed in a large cage beneath the stall. I remembered how we’d once mentioned them in conversation. I dimly recalled that Xil even told her she could have one.  

The little long-eared creatures were a sorry sight. While the other pets were all in pristine condition, the tribitts looked like they’d not been brushed in days. They were well-nourished but clearly hadn’t been given the same attention as the other animals.
“Those are tribitts,” the owner said dismissively. “Very old-fashioned. Nobody wants them nowadays. I only keep them because nostalgic tribitt enthusiasts need new breeding females for their herds.”

“Ooooooh,” Trish exclaimed. “You told me about them, Matar. You didn’t say that they look like rabbits!”

“That’s because I have no idea what a rabbit is,” I chuckled. “But if you say so…”

“What’s a rabbit?” the stall owner asked curiously. “Are they cute?”

“Very,” Trish replied with a dreamy expression. “I used to have one as a child. They have ears just like these tribitts, but they’re a bit smaller and less colourful. Mine was white with beige spots, but you’ll also find black and brown ones.”

“That sounds dull,” I remarked. “It would make them hard to spot.”

She laughed. “That’s the point. In the wild, they’re prey and need to camouflage.”

“They’re not bred to be pets?” the seller asked with a strange expression. “You take them from the wild?”  

He looked horrified at the idea.  

“No, but their ancestors were wild. Wait, does that mean tribitts don’t exist in nature?”

The stall owner shook his head. “All these pets were created to be just that. Pretty, cute, easy to look after, house or space ship trained. Most of them listen to simple commands, while others are more intelligent. Tribitts can be too clever for some owners, especially when it comes to food. They’re known to learn how to open drawers. I’ve even heard of some that can manipulate a fabricator. That could be just a myth, but I wouldn’t put it past them. Devious little beasts. I don’t know why they were even created. Now, my dear, how about one of these gorgeous Sliviean poro’la? They like to ride on their owner’s shoulder and are excellent at removing body hair.”

One look at Trish told me that we’d leave Kitt-Y-6 with a tribitt. And when she looked at me and began to flutter her lush eyelashes, I knew I had no choice.

“Which one do you like best?” I asked, repressing a sigh.  

Most of the tribitts in the cage were a shade of dark purple with bright pink ears. Two were golden with dark stripes, and-

“The green one,” Trish said determinedly. “It’s the same shade as you. So pretty.”

My heart did a little jump at that. She chose that tribitt because it reminded her of me. I would have bought her a dozen tribitts just to hear her say that again.  

“Are you sure?” the owner asked, clearly not happy about it. I guessed the other pets were more expensive than the tribitts. After he’d told us that they were out of fashion, he couldn’t charge a lot for them, not without losing face. That suited me just fine. We’d have more left in our budget to buy Trish other things. I wanted to treat her to a necklace I’d seen the last time we’d been on Kitt-Y-6. It was unlikely it was still available, but it would suit her perfectly.  

“Yes,” Trish replied without hesitation. “That is if you’re okay with that?”

She turned to me.

“Of course,” I said quickly. “Anything for you.”

Trish smiled. “I’ll give you a proper thank you later.”

My cock hardened. I knew exactly what she had in mind.  

I squeezed her hand, a promise of other squeezing I was planning on doing later. Her breasts were made for me, perfectly fitting into my hands. I loved massaging them, using just the right amount of pressure to make her moan and gasp.  

“Do you need a basic tribitt accessories set with that?” the stall owner asked, clearly hoping to increase his profits. “It includes a harness, leash, food bowls, litter tray, some toys and a first-aid kit.”

“First-aid?” Trish asked with wide eyes. “Do they get injured easily?”

The male grinned. “No, that’s for the owners. Tribitts can be moody.”

I rolled my eyes. “Don’t listen to him. If you treat a tribitt right, he’ll never scratch or bite you. But we’ll take the set. I assume they’re vaccinated and microchipped?”

“Yes, they also have sensors implanted, so you always know where your tribitt is and how it’s feeling. There’s an app for your communicator.”

An app to monitor your tribitt. How silly.

He opened the cage and grabbed the green tribitt by its ears. It let out an angry bellow, but the seller didn’t seem to care. I was starting to regret buying from him, but it was too late. The way Trish looked at the tribitt meant she’d already fallen in love with it. Not that I could blame her. The little animal was adorable. While most of it was green, it had small pink spots beneath its eyes. Its paws were a lighter green, the same as the insides of its long ears. Trish had been right. It was almost the exact colour I was.  

“Do you want a cage for it?” the seller asked. “Or I can put the harness on it and you can carry it around with you. I should warn you, though, they go crazy for piki cakes so don’t let them anywhere near that stall.”

I sighed. That was going to be a problem.

When they meet up with the others, everyone falls in love with the tribbit. Trish refuses to name him until they return to the ship, which circumstances has them doing sooner rather than later.

Seems Professor Katila has been up to some mischief and when they realize she’s behind their troubles they begin to wonder about continuing the course.

I have to say that nest building had me laughing, and of course there’s plenty of sizzling heat. Trish really does love her aliens. The professor is also going to get schooled, by Trish. Don’t mess with the earth woman. However the OMG ending may have me modifying that thought but I didn’t throw my kindle so that’s a plus!

I really can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Alien Abduction For Beginners
Christmas Assignment
The Intergalactic Guide to Humans Book 1.5
USA Today Bestselling Author
Skye MacKinnon

Sisters A-Vay and A-Ven are close to finishing their course in Alien Abduction at the prestigious Intergalactic University. To stay top of their class, they need to perform the best abduction Earth has never seen.

After weeks of monitoring the planet’s communications, they’ve set their eyes on Earth’s most famous man, a guy with a white beard and red coat. He may be old but he’s ho-ho-hot and his bells still jingle!

Now if only the sisters knew what to do about the reindeer in the cargo bay…

A steamy standalone story set in the Starlight Universe. If you want a hilarious book involving insatiable alien twin sisters and a Santa with a very large candy cane, scroll up and read this book today. Beware, you may be abducted at any moment, so don’t waste time.

A-Vay and A-Ven want a really good score on their final exam. They have chosen the subject for abduction very carefully. He’s not your typical human either.

I started laughing on the first page of this book when I realized who they were abducting…

This is a favorite scene and one that I can post without the sizzling and funny heat that ensues.

My skin flashes bright green as I stare at the man on the screen.

“It’s him!” my sister cheers, her colouring changing just as rapidly as my own. “Finally.”

We’ve been looking for him for over a week, but now our scanners have finally found him. Our future mate.  

I take him in, all six feet of humanness. I don’t want to be called speciesist, but humans are one of the sexiest aliens out there. Karangi may come close, although I think their reputation for beauty is exaggerated. This male, however, is truly stunning. His long red coat highlights his white hair and beard. His coal-black eyes are hidden beneath bushy grey eyebrows that almost seem like tiny lifeforms clinging to his face. His nose is strong with wide nostrils begging to be touched. He’ll be a pleasure to kunik with.  

He’s surprisingly tall for a human, although he’d barely reach my chin. And soon he will. I’ll have him pressed against my chest…

“A-Vay, focus,” my sister snaps. “Set a new course. Let’s get to his location before he moves again. This male is slipperier than a walmop.”

She’s right about that. Our sensors are top range, yet whenever we thought we’d spotted him, he was gone by the time we had a fix on his whereabouts. He moves fast, faster than their primitive human vehicles should allow. His vehicle is made from a native material they call wood, but we’ve not been able to find any details on why this wood would be superior to more advanced technologies.  

My six fingers dance over the keyboard, changing our spaceship’s trajectory. A-Ven prefers to use voice control, but I’m old-fashioned. I like to touch things.  

I wonder what our human will feel like beneath my finger pads. I’m sure he’ll be soft. Squishy. I’ll be able to…

“Focus,” A-Ven hisses, clearly knowing that I’m dreaming again. She knows me better than any other being in the universe. We shared the same egg and sometimes, it feels like we share the same mind, too.  

I push away all thoughts of how our future mate’s beard might feel when it brushes against my face and concentrate on our ship’s controls. Our target male is far away from civilisation now, making it easy to intercept him. We don’t want to break the rules by showing ourselves to the locals, but I’m also desperate to finally catch him. He won’t slip through our fingers this time.  

“Stealth mode engaged,” I mutter as we enter the atmosphere. “I’ll park us a short way from his dwelling, then we can walk the remaining bit. I don’t want to alert him to our presence.”

“Good thinking, sis. Let’s be stealthy like our ship.”  

A-Ven turns to the fabricator and scrolls through a list of local garments. We’ve been scanning Peritus long enough to find out what native females like to wear. It seems to vary a lot between regions, so I take a quick look at the weather conditions at our destination.

“Make it something loose and airy,” I tell my sister. “It’s almost four hundred glyptons there. That’s positively scorching.”

“Let’s not stay there for too long or my skin will melt. I hate hot climates. Why couldn’t he have chosen somewhere colder to live?”

“Trust me, we’re lucky he’s in that part of the planet. There are much hotter areas. We’d need survival suits to even leave our ship.”

A-Ven shudders. “And that’s why I prefer to be in a spaceship with good air-con. How long till landing?”

“Almost there. Better sit down, the ground here is covered in frozen liquid. I’m not sure how our landing gear will cope with that.”

My sister takes the seat next to mine – we had the ship modified to have two captain’s chairs – and straps in. I know she trusts me to give us the smoothest landing possible, but we’ve both got enough experience with travelling to strange planets to know that physics can work differently than we’re used to. Before we decided to become approved abductors, we were traders. After years of travelling the galaxy, we got a little bored though without having anyone around. We tried giving hitchhikers a lift, but they rarely wanted to stay for long and always fussed around with their towels. Then we abducted our first male, only to find out it was an infertile female. We dropped her off at the nearest space station, where A-Ven saw the advert for the Intergalactic University.  

Thirty lectures and four assignments later, only one abduction stands between us and a degree in Alien Abduction. And because both of us are high-achievers, we went for the most powerful male on the entire planet. We scanned their news and one male kept popping up around the world. His name varies depending on the local language, but his outer appearance doesn’t change much. I can’t wait to see what he hides under his long, red coat! I hope he’s as packed there as his strange vehicle always is. He transports a lot of bags from one place to another, but we’ve not quite figured out why he does it himself. He’s so powerful and well-known, why doesn’t he have servants? Even the poorest male back on Ank wouldn’t be seen doing hard manual labour like that. At least it should have given him excellent muscle mass. I do like males who can pin me down…


“Sorry, sis. Landing in three… two… one…”
Skye MacKinnon. Alien Abduction for Beginners – Christmas Assignment: The Intergalactic Guide to Humans – Christmas special (Kindle Locations 39-80). Peryton Press.

Santa is more than just human he’s special, and well, he has reindeer and his sleigh. They use his sleigh to get him to the ship and let me tell you the ‘probing’ is both hot and hysterical.

Of course his reindeer wouldn’t be left behind no matter what the sisters thought.

This is a hysterical read with sizzling heat that will melt any ice in the vicinity.

It’s Here!!! Roar – Catnip Assassins Book 7 By Skye MacKinnon

Catnip Assassins Book 7
USA Today Bestselling Author
Sky MacKinnon



It’s time for the last meow.
Her whole life, Kat has been fighting for survival.
For her freedom.

Now she’s done. She wants peace.
Even if that means having to risk everything she loves.

The final book in this purrfectly exciting urban fantasy series full of action, suspense and cat puns. A slow burn reverse harem where Kat won’t have to choose.


Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo google_play_logo_002_002


When we last saw Kat she was in labor with a battle going on around her. This book begins right there as the guys win the battle and Kat gives birth to four very unusual babies.

She’s also not doing well, still bleeding and they need to get back home, it’s a long and arduous journey. Once there she finds the Mayor, Lady Lara has a surgeon waiting with ultrasound to see why Kat’s still bleeding. Healing is going to take a while, and Kat also finds the reasons human mothers switch to bottle feeding.

While still reconnecting with her mates, she is already plotting revenge on Lord Delaney. She owes him a painful death for all he’s done to her. Meanwhile there have been murders around the area of Lady Lara’s offices. Unusual in the fact that a Fang coin has been left with the bodies. Lady Lara realizes it’s a threat and she wants Kat to investigate.

One of the things that amused me are the nicknames being used for her children, Tailie the only male, who just happens to have a tail, Biter and Vamp, they have very sharp teeth and like to bite while nursing and Furrie who sports fur in human form. They need real names and a naming ceremony is planned and carried out.

This is a favorite scene.

Gryphon clears his throat, looking extremely serious. “Please, everyone not holding a baby, sit down.”

As soon as they’re all seated, the room feels immediately less crowded. I breathe in deep, then focus on Gryphon as he looks at the babies one at a time.

“We welcome you to the world. Know you were loved from the moment we heard your tiny hearts beat for the very first time and that you will be loved until the day they beat no more. Our life together has only just begun, but from now on we will be part of your lives every second of the day. You are loved, you are cherished, you are treasured. May you know happiness, friendship and health. May you know right from wrong, your own true worth and peace throughout your lives. May you sing and laugh and play with only joy and never fear. Children, we welcome you to the world.”

“We welcome you to the world,” we all repeat solemnly. I’m tempted to laugh at seeing everyone behaving so seriously, especially Bethany and Lily. In combination with Benjamin wearing a suit, it’s kind of comical. Still, I resist the temptation by focusing my gaze on my children.

“Do you want to start, Kat?” he asks me quietly after a moment’s silence.

I kind of wish he went first, but I get why he wants me to be the one to begin. I’m the mother, the woman who carried these four tiny people inside of me. Not for as long as mothers usually do, but I think the pain towards the end made up for that.

I take a deep breath and press Tailie closer against my chest. “I promise to make you the happiest children in the world,” I say quietly, barely more than a whisper. “I will protect you with my life. I will steal you the stars and kill anyone wishing you harm. You will never want for anything. You will be raised with love and care. You will never lack for catnip.”

“Kat!” Lily hisses. “That’s not appropriate.”

I flash my teeth at her and continue. “I name you Liat Feln. May your name serve you well.” I gently kiss his forehead. Tailie – no, Liat – giggles and grins up at me. I don’t think he understood any of it, but I’m glad he’s not crying.

“Liat Feln,” everyone echoes. I can almost hear Lily roll her eyes at my name choice, but she doesn’t comment on it.

I step back and let Ryker take centre stage. He’s cradling Biter who’s fast asleep. Her brown hair seems to be growing with every day, much faster than that of her twin. We may have to give her a first haircut soon if this doesn’t slow down.

“Little one,” Ryker begins, lovingly smiling down at his daughter. “We’ve been calling you Biter because you’ve been sinking your teeth into life from the moment you were born. You’re a fighter, a warrior, and that’s why I’ve chosen this name for you. Biter, I name you Bella after the belladonna plant. It may be one of the deadliest plants, but its flowers are as beautiful as its leaves are toxic. May you be as strong and deadly as the flower you’re named after.”

“Bella Feln,” we all say solemnly before I meet his eyes and smile. He chose a good name.

To my surprise, Gryphon joins Ryker with little Vamp. Unlike her twin sister, she’s wide awake and is taking in everything with rapt attention. “Let’s make this short,” he says while tickling his daughter under the chin. “You shall be Donna, the other part of belladonna. Together, you and Bella will be unstoppable.”

My heart melts. Ryker and Gryphon must have agreed on this, which means they talked about names while I wasn’t with them. They’re behaving like true loving fathers. Which they are, I know that, but it’s good to see yet more proof of it. My right eye itches. In other people, that might be a tear trying to squeeze through, but in my case, I’m sure it’s just a speck of dust.

“Donna Feln,” Gryphon says and we echo him.

Together, they step back and Lennox takes their place, holding Furrie.

“I’m not a poetic man,” Lennox says with a shrug. “So I shall call you Shade. You may not blend in with humans, but once the sun sets, you will become one with the night. You’ll move unseen unless you want to be noticed. You’re something new, something beautiful, and I will make sure you’ll never feel different within this family. And outside of this family, I’ll kill anyone who hurts you with words or weapons.” He grins down at her, a complete contrast to his words. “I love you, little Shade, just like I love your siblings. Welcome to the world.”

Liat, Bella, Donna and Shade. I look at my babies and realise how well their names fit.

The guys have done a great job. It won’t be hard to let go of the nicknames and call them by their real names from now on.

Gryphon clears his throat again, getting everyone’s attention. “The next part of the ceremony has been modified by Kat.” He rolls his eyes with much drama before holding up a small bag. “Usually, we’d sprinkle flower petals over the babies, but Kat insisted that we use catnip instead. Help yourselves, just make sure they don’t get any into their eyes.”

Lily snorts. “Kat, you’re incorrigible. Don’t you dare pass on your addiction to my nieces.”

“They’re not your nieces.” “They sure are. If you tell them otherwise, I’ll tell them of the time you played with a ball of string and almost licked your-“

“Alright,” I interrupt her. Gryphon must not have heard that story yet for his eyes are wide open and he looks like he’s about to combust with laughter. “They’re your nieces. Now go cover them in catnip like you’re supposed to. It’s for good luck or something like that.”

“It’s a symbol of us promising to provide for them,” Bethany corrects in a surprisingly sombre voice. “And I intend to keep that promise.”

She takes the bag from Gryphon and pulls out a handful of dried catnip leaves. They’re of the best quality, nice and big, not those tiny, shredded pieces you sometimes get with cat toys. Not that I’ve ever bought those.

Bethany gently lays a few leaves on each of the babies’ foreheads, then hands the bag to Benjamin while shooting me a stern look. What happened to the fun-loving, never-serious Bethany? She’s been spending a lot of time with the litter, maybe too much time.

One by one, my friends rub some catnip on the babies, until they smell so delicious that I want them all in my arms. Sadly, I’m not large enough – or maybe they’re not small enough anymore. Instead, I breathe in deep, smelling the sweet aroma of my babies mixed with the addictive aroma of catnip.

I stand there with Liat on my arms, feeling a little out of sorts. Like this isn’t quite real. I should be out there, running over the rooftops, assassinating people, doing what I was trained to do. Instead, I’m in a cosy, suburban living room with my family and friends, cooing over babies.

My life is unravelling and I’m not sure what to think of it. I both hate and love it. But once this ceremony is over, I need to get out of here for a moment and be Kat, the assassin again.
Skye MacKinnon. Roar: Catnip Assassins Book 7 (Kindle Locations 1123-1177). Peryton Press.

I think the naming ceremony is the most peaceful scene in the whole book and it involves all of Kat’s mates as well as her friends.

Things heat up even quicker after that, with plenty of action and so much more, as this book and this series reaches it’s conclusion.

With plenty of love, intrigue, action, laughter, tears and sizzle this is the purrrrfect ending!

Song of Blood – The Lost Siren Book 1 By Skye MacKinnon & Liza Street

Song Of Blood
The Lost Siren Book 1
USA Today Bestselling Authors
Skye MacKinnon
Liza Street



Vampire apocalypse? Check.
Three mysterious hotties? Check.
Prophecy about being the ‘chosen one’? That, too.

Avery is more interested in keeping herself fed – and supplied with toilet paper – during the vampire apocalypse than she is in saving the world. But when three mysterious hotties show up and proclaim her to be the long lost descendent of a famous siren, Avery is thrust into the very adventure she didn’t know she needed.

She didn’t want a quest. She didn’t want an entourage of preternatural being – a vampire, a werewolf, and a faerie lord. And she certainly didn’t want to fall in love.

It’s the end of the world…but what if the end of this one heralds the beginning of something new?


Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo google_play_logo_002_002


All Avery wanted was toilet paper…what she gets is a Vampire, Lysander and an Elf/Siren hybrid, Charles. Well at first anyway.

She’s just about to get some answers when they have to run.

This is a favorite scene.

Charles rolled his eyes, not intimidated in the slightest, but he said, “I beg your forgiveness, mademoiselle, for my uncouth behaviour.” Posh and hot. I’d stepped into a Jane Austen novel. Quickly, I buttoned up my blouse and willed my cheeks to cool. “Would you guys please tell me what’s going on?” I asked. Now that I wasn’t flooded with desire, I felt embarrassed and vulnerable. Lysander was next to me in an instant. He drew me against him in a sideways hug that should have put me off, but felt comforting and right.

“I know this is strange for you, Avery,” he said, “but Charles and I are going to take care of you while we navigate the next phase of your Awakening.”

“My Awakening?” I felt like a damned parrot.

“Your transition to your true self has been thrown off course due to the Vandemic,” Charles explained. “As a result, you’re in danger of being left behind by your people as they journey to the Evermist. We’re going to help you reach them. It’s our duty and bond.”

I could only stare at him. Desire began to stir within me again. At the same time, I was starting to think I was surrounded by psychos.

“Cut that shit out,” I said.

“He’s not doing anything,” Lysander said with a chuckle. “That’s all you, love.”

“I’m not doing anything,” I protested. “And I had my period two weeks ago, so I shouldn’t feel like—”

I stopped before I could say anything even more embarrassing. The attraction wasn’t as strong this time, but still intense enough to make me squeeze my thighs together.

“It’s your siren nature responding to me,” Charles said with a smirk. “And judging from your reaction, you’re a strong siren indeed.”

“I’m not a siren,” I protested weakly. “I’m as human as they come. You’ve had your entertainment, now let me go.”

“We can’t,” Lysander said with something like regret swinging in his voice. “You’d be in danger out there now.”

“I’m in no more danger than I was this morning. The world is dangerous, full of vampires, and generally sucks. I’m used to that.”

“You don’t understand. You’re changing. I could sense it and so can others. Your Awakening is close and we need to make sure you’re safe.”

My head was beginning to hurt. “If this turns out to be a prank, I’m going to kill you. Slowly.”

Charles laughed. “I like her. She’ll fit right in.”

“Into what?”

The guys exchanged a look.

“Later,” Lysander said, not meeting my eyes. “For now, let’s sit down and talk about your siren heritage.”

The sound of breaking glass reached my ears at the same time both men stood up straight.

“Fuck,” Charles said. “They’re already here.”

I looked from him to Lysander. “Who? Who’s here?”

“Hunters. Come on, Avery.” Charles gathered me to him. “It’s time to run.”
Skye MacKinnon; Liza Street. Song Of Blood: The Lost Siren Book 1 (Kindle Locations 246-272).

She meets Tarin, a werewolf when they arrive at his home, she also meets Tasha another siren. Avery still hasn’t accepted that she’s something other than human, that will come though.

Avery finally finds out who she is supposed to be. A Lorelei siren, one of the most powerful beings out there. More importantly they need to travel to the Evermist. However Avery must be Awakened in order to make the journey and they need to protect Avery until they get the necklace she needs to accomplish it.

Plenty of action in this one, and the sensuous flirting is seriously hot. I also got a real kick out of the computer Avery accesses while in a safe room.

Dang the ending has me wanting more, right now.

These sexy aliens will stop at nothing
to claim their mates—including abducting them!

When hot, hunky aliens need to find a mate, they know right where to look: Earth. But let’s face it, not all Earth girls are easy. We prefer our guys—even our alien guys—to put in some serious effort. Good thing human men make it easy for them.

Don’t miss your chance to binge-read this burning-hot collection of alien abduction-turned-seduction tales by New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors.

Alien Abduction for Beginners
The Intergalactic Guide to Humans Book 1
USA Today Bestselling Author
Skye MacKinnon

Not all aliens are good at abducting humans.

Havel, Matar and Xil have failed too many times to count. Luckily, there’s help available for failed kidnappers: a diploma offered by the Intergalactic University. To complete their course, these three sexy aliens need to abduct a human female – and they’re graded on it.

The problem is, the human female has no intentions of being abducted, not even to help them get the universe’s most recognised abduction qualification.

The failures that Havel, Matar and Xil have experienced has let them to taking a course to improved their methods for abducting. Their choice is a human, they like the fur and the boobs.

As they listen to the professor and do the assignments, their interpretation of the material is hilarious. The way they happen to get their abductee is what I guess you could call fate.

Trish lives in a hovel, and had gone to the one place she knew she could get some work. Chandra did in fact have a job for her and a scooter for her to accomplish the task. Unfortunately she crashes the scooter, and that’s where our Aliens find her and take her to their ship.

This is a favorite scene as she wakes from healing.

She started laughing. She threw her head back and laughed, her entire body shaking from the giggles breaking from her chest.

“Is she reacting to the drugs you gave her?” I asked Havel.

“I doubt it. Maybe it’s her way of communicating her happiness at the situation?”

I shrugged. Humans were strange, so this may as well be her showing us how pleased she was with us.

“Do you have any questions, female?” I asked, hoping she’d take the hint and stop laughing.

She gasped for breath in between giggles, causing concern to rise in my chest which turned my scales a darker shade of yellow.

“This is a joke, right?” she asked breathlessly. “Is this my punishment for breaking the scooter? Did Chadra put you up to this?”

Again, the three of us exchanged a look. Chadra? Punishment?

“If you’d like to be punished, we’d be happy to comply,” Matar said smoothly. “I’ve heard some aliens expect punishment when they’re abducted. I’d be happy to spank you if you wish.”

The female immediately stopped laughing and stared at Matar. “Spank me?”

He held up a hand. “Slap you on your bum.”

“I know what spanking is. What the hell? Why are you doing this?”

“It’s part of our culture,” I explained. “We’ve wanted to abduct a female for so long and you’re just what we were looking for.” I didn’t tell her that we’d failed many times before. She didn’t have to know that. I wanted her to see us as strong, capable males who’d given her the perfect abduction experience.

“Abduction experience,” she echoed. “I think the joke is over now. Can I just get my scooter back and leave?”

“You cannot leave,” I said as gently as I could. “I already told you that. We’re in space and on route to Kardar. You will never return to Earth. We are your mates and this ship is your home.”

To my surprise, she snorted. “Yeah, sure. You’re great actors, I give you that, although you should work on your script. No aliens would ever talk like that.”

“But we are aliens,” Havel interrupted. “Here’s proof of what the Captain has been saying.”

The blinds to our right shot up, revealing a large window. Outside, space was endless and beautiful. I’d always loved looking at the stars, wondering which ones I’d visit in my lifetime. I smiled at the sight, then turned to the female to see her reaction.

Her mouth had fallen open, revealing her very flat teeth. Not a single fang in sight. Havel was the only one of us with pronounced fangs, but even Matar and I had sharp teeth that could rip a piece of flesh off a bone. Yet more proof that humans were incapable of defending themselves.

“That’s… it can’t be real,” the female muttered. She slipped off the bed and walked to the window with slow, unsteady steps. Havel moved to help her, but I held him back. I wanted to see what she’d do next.

She lay her hands against the window as if trying to touch the stars outside. I smiled. She was already starting to understand the beauty of our surroundings.

“This is a simulation,” she said, her voice becoming steadier. “I don’t know how you’re paying for it, but this has gone on long enough. Don’t you dare charge me for it. I’m going to have to work years to pay off Chadra’s scooter already.”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about, female, but this isn’t a simulation,” I assured her. “We can have a true simulation at some point so we can show you our planet, but now isn’t the time. What is your name?”

I knew I should have asked that earlier, but luckily Professor Katila wasn’t here to grade us on our performance. We’d simply tell her that everything went smoothly.

“That’s none of your business,” the human snapped. “And I’m leaving.”

To her detriment, the three of us were standing right in front of the only door leading out of the med bay. And there was no way we’d let her go. Not after the escape pod drama.

“Sit down and ask us questions,” I told her and pointed at the bed. “You’re supposed to ask about your new life and us.”

She raised her eyebrows and I realised they were brown rather than pink. Curious. “I’m supposed to?”

Matar nodded enthusiastically. “It’s what it says in the manual. You’re full of questions and we’ll do our best to answer them. It will calm you down and prepare you for the next step.”

“What’s the next step?” she asked, her voice wavering a little.

Havel grinned, happy to have reached his favourite subject. “Probing.”

From here this book starts to sizzle, and the way they interpret earth things causes much amusement for Trish. She is however very interested in these men.

Their grade however suffers for some of those interpretations and they will do anything pass this course.

I laughed out loud for much of this book, and this relationship sizzles right from the start.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and the other contributions in this HUGE anthology!

Into The Mists – Seven Wardens Book 2 by Skye MacKinnon & Laura Greenwood

Into the Mists
Seven Wardens Book 2
USA Today Bestselling Authors

Skye MacKinnon


A kelpie, an incubus and two wraiths walk into a bar…

Things were going so well until Macey got kidnapped. Again. Except this time, the kidnapper knows exactly why he has her, and none of his plans are good news.

She could wait for her men to save her, but then again, she’s not the kind of Princess who needs a Prince to save the day.

A reverse harem (still) drenched in Scottish mythology. Book 2 in the Seven Wardens series.

Barnes and Noble logo_150 KoboLogo google_play_logo_002_002

The book opens with Macey and her men visiting Nessie, only it’s not Nessie and it takes a bit for Macey to figure it out. Macey is in a dungeon, the Voice is torturing her. When she wakes, she meets a mouse, Luch. It’s Luch who tells her that Amber is also imprisoned here and not in good shape.

Now the Voice has been torturing Amber far longer than Macey. In the visions the Voice has projected on her a kelpie will kill her. She is sure she will die now and by Macey’s hand.

This is a favorite scene.

“Now, I’m going to go back in there,” Amber continued. “I’m no longer alone and I’m no longer bound. We can fight him together. There’s no point in leaving now while we’re already here.”


Suddenly, the world evaporated. It was like the people around Macey suddenly dissolved into mist and drifted away, leaving her alone. Well, not quite alone.

Amber was by her side. There was nothing else. Not even colour. They were standing on a white floor, but there were no walls, no nothing. Just endless whiteness.

“Amber?” Macey asked carefully, “Are you seeing the same?”

“If you mean a lot of white, then yes. And no Izban.” Her voice was quivering slightly.


“Stop being so dramatic!” Macey shouted, trying to convince both herself and Amber that they needn’t be afraid.

The Voice ignored her.


Mist drifted into the air around them, forming shapes and colours, until they were suddenly back in the courtyard where Macey had first laid eyes upon Amber. She still didn’t know what that girl was, except that she was strong. Incredibly strong.

“I will get out of here, I will get out of here,” Amber began to whisper, a desperate mantra. “I will get out of here. I will…”


Without warning, they were ripped apart, flying through the air until they landed roughly on opposite ends of the courtyard. Ignoring the pain in her limbs, Macey jumped to her feet. She could guess what the Voice was planning next.


A beithir! Finally, Macey knew what Amber was. And it scared her a little. She didn’t know a lot about beithirs except that they could kill in a variety of ways. Their fangs were poisonous, they could control the weather, they could fly and attack you from above. When they shifted, of course. So far, Amber had stayed human, which is why Macey hadn’t figured out her species before. It was hard not to recognise a shifted beithir… there weren’t any other supernaturals that looked like a giant snake.

Amber was still on the ground, weakly trying to get to her feet. She’d expended too much energy; she wasn’t going to be much of a threat.

But… when had reality been taken over by the Voice? Had it been after Amber attacked Macey with lightning? Or before? If it was before… then Amber would still have enough power to do another such attack. And Macey wasn’t sure if she could escape her fate a second time. Had the Voice let them play out their battle in their minds so he could see what was going to happen? Did he want to see how they would escape so he could prevent it from ever happening?

Macey shivered. How was she supposed to fight someone who could play with her perception of what was real and what wasn’t? She was still having trouble believing that she hadn’t just spoken to her men. Were they really coming for her? Was Izban actually able to do a tracking spell, or had that bit been Amber’s wishful thinking?

KILL HER, the Voice repeated and this time, Amber was magically dragged onto her feet by an unseen force. She wavered, but somehow managed to stand. Tiny sparks of lightning began to flicker around the girl’s fingers and Macey prepared for the inevitable.

But wait… she was no longer wearing the copper cuffs. That had to mean that the battle had taken place and their combined power had opened them.

Was the Voice aware of that? Did he want an execution execution or a cat fight?

Amber opened her mouth, but Macey couldn’t hear what she was saying. They were too far apart. Well, that could be rectified.

Macey carefully walked towards Amber, aware that there might be a dangerous surprise waiting at every step. Earlier, there’d been guards lying dead or unconscious all over the courtyard. This time, they were alone.

She shook her head in confusion. There was no way of telling what was real and what wasn’t. Maybe she was still in her cell. Maybe she’d never even met Amber and this was all one giant illusion.

Suddenly, the air in front of her flickered and someone appeared. Someone very familiar with very blue hair.



Amber’s eyes widened as she saw her friend. He didn’t move; he seemed more statue than living being. Macey walked around him and took a closer look.

His eyes were moving but the rest of him wasn’t. His face was an expressionless mask, but his eyes told her of his fear.

She could almost believe that he was real. That he was in danger.

A lightning bolt hit the ground next to her and she jumped back in surprise. Amber seemed to be convinced that Izban was real.

Another bolt of lightning crashed down at Macey’s side, and she almost jumped back. If she was going to have Amber around, then she’d probably better get used to having this happen.

“Amber,” she tried to whisper, but her voice was hoarse, as if from a lack of water. That was odd. Unless there were other side effects of the visions the Voice had given them.

There wasn’t any answer.

Macey steeled herself, then waved her hand through Izban’s still form, completely unsurprised when her hand passed right through him. Another visual trick then.

“Amber, please,” she shouted, the wind that was beginning to rage stealing her words. Potentially the other woman’s doing too. She’d heard that beithirs were storm creatures, not just lightning ones. “He’s not real.”

Her words weren’t having any effect, and one look at the redhead revealed just how bad things were. Her eyes had taken on a crazed look, and there was no doubt about how mad the woman was.

“AMBER!” she shouted even louder, but again, no response.

Sucking in a deep breath, she did the only thing she could think of, and unleashed a ball of water at the girl.

A sharp squeal, followed by a calming in the winds, told her the trick had worked even better than she’d intended.

“What did you do that for?” Amber shouted, venom almost as poisonous as her fangs dripping from her tone.

“He’s not real,” Macey said softly, ignoring the glares she received in return. “Look.” She passed her hand through the still form of the blue-haired man, and Amber’s green eyes widened.

“How do I know he’s not trapped somewhere here?” Her voice cracked as she spoke, and Macey’s heart went out to her. She felt the same way when she thought of her own men in danger, so there was very little doubt in her mind how Amber felt about Izban.

Good job he seemed to feel the same.

“Because I was with him before I was taken,” she replied softly, hoping the Voice wouldn’t be able to hear her whispers, but knowing that hope was likely in vain.

“You were?” Amber perked up at that, and Macey smiled.

“Yes. He was trying to find you.”


Amber sighed. “He’s so demanding,” she tried to joke.

“And throws a lot of tantrums,” Macey added.

“What do we do now?”

“I suppose you try and kill me.”

Maybe not her best idea, but they at least had to pretend for the moment.

“That seems a little counterproductive.”

Macey cracked a smile. She could get used to having Amber around if she was going to make comments like that.

“Just while we think of an actual plan.”

This time, Amber nodded. “Okay, sounds like the best idea we have.”

“Which isn’t saying a lot.”

The red-head laughed. “No, it really doesn’t.”

She took two steps back and squared off against Macey, pushing her sleeves up and readying herself.

“Prepare to die, bitch,” Amber taunted.

“Bring it on,” Macey replied, unable to help the amused smile tugging at her lips. When she knew the other woman wasn’t actually going to be aiming for her, she kind of looked forward to facing off against her. It was just an intense kind of training really. Her men would be happy.

Amber struck first, sending twin bolts of lightning either side of Macey.

Not waiting another moment, Macey summoned mini balls of water, and began juggling them in the air to gain momentum. Then, one after the other, she began to fling them at Amber, making sure each one narrowly missed the girl’s head. Though one did accidentally come too close, luckily, Amber was quick enough to avoid it.

She must be running on adrenaline though. She’d been weak to start with and could only be getting worse by the second.

Maybe that was the Voice’s plan. To wear them out to the point where they were no longer able to even think of fighting back. That way, their minds would be easy to slip into, and he could take whatever control he wanted.

Wasn’t that a cheery thought?

The two women danced around each other, flinging their powers back and forth with increasing ferocity. It was almost a battle of who could conjure the most elaborate piece of magic.

So far, Amber was winning. She’d conjured a massive snake, that probably looked something like her in shifted form, and made it coil around Macey. Being inside the electricity had been invigorating, and all she’d been able to see were the bright sparks coming off it.

Once the snake’s coils had receded, she caught Amber’s eye, trying to ensure the woman would do exactly the same again. Only this time, Macey would add to the power and do…. something. She wasn’t all that sure what, but it was worth a shot.

“When you two are quite done, how about we actually consider getting you out of here?” a soft female voice sounded.
Greenwood, Laura. Seven Wardens Omnibus: Books 1-4 (Seven Wardens Collections) (pp. 278-283). Peryton Press. Kindle Edition.

With the help of a mermaid they get to Scotland and a messenger from Malan is there waiting. Before she would get their men she wanted to meet Nessie, who had thus far been ignoring her. A touch of blackmail if you will. Once reunited with their men, they find they actually have a bit of a time limit to fix everything.

A visit to the Sith and Macey takes on the final warden Air. Some mysterious chairs, a secret revealed, plenty of travel and new folks and just one thing solved.

I love these books, they are creative, sexy and full of suspense and intrigue.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
