Seven Dark Tales. Seven Sensual Stories. Seven Page Turners.
Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.
DREAM OF YOU: Abby Erickson isn’t looking for a one-night stand, a relationship, or anything that involves any one-on-one time, but when she witnesses a shocking crime, she’s thrust into the hands of Colton Anders. His job is to protect her, but with every look, every touch, and every simmering kiss, she’s in danger of not only losing her life but her heart also.
STRIPPED DOWN: A flirty game of sexual truth or dare between best man, Wynton Grant, and maid of honor, Melissa Lockhart during their BFF’s wedding reception results in a steamy hookup. But their plans for a one and done change when a family crisis leaves Wyn shorthanded at the Grant Ranch. Mel volunteers to help and gets way more than she bargained for.
RAGE: Rage has never had a problem charming the females. All except Lucie Gaudet. The lovely Geek is a born troublemaker, and it was no surprise to Rage when she was kicked out of the Wildlands. Now the Pantera need a first-class hacker to stop the potential destruction of their people, and it’s up to Rage to convince Lucie to help.
KILLIAN: Gorgeous, brutal, aggressive, and human, Killian O’Roarke wants only two things: to get rid of the Pantera DNA he’s been infected with, and get back to the field. Rosalie lost her mate to a human, and now the Hunter despises them all. In a time of war between their species, isn’t any chance of love destined for destruction?
DRAGON KING: Grace Clark has found the perfect spot to break through her writer’s block. Until Arian, a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave, appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn’t just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian – the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she’s ever met.
IGNITE: In Legacy, Colorado, I buried my father alongside his elite Hotshot team. Ten years later, I’ve followed in his footsteps—fighting fires in the mountains of Alaska with my brother.
Amid the flames, nothing ignites me like Avery Claire. She’s stubborn, strong, sexy as hell, and my best friend. She also has no idea that I’m in love with her.
FATED IDENTITY: Grady Kenton relishes the long seductive weekends with Brienne Chaylse, the beautiful CIA liaison who understands his boundaries and accepts things the way he needs them to be. When Brienne’s identity as a CIA special agent is leaked to the media, she and Grady must race to discover whose betrayal runs deep while their true feelings emerge.
My Reviews –
Bundle – 5 Unique Stars!!
Thank you so very much Inkslinger PR for sending me a copy of 1001 Dark Nights The Discovery Bundle!! I am honored and grateful!! 🙂
Dream Of You –
4.5 Now I want Crêpes Stars!!
After hearing so many wonderful things about Ms.Armentrout’s work I couldn’t wait to pick Dream Of You up!! It was sweet, intense, sexy, and action-packed! From beginning to end I was hooked and I loved the fact that it was a straight to the point kind of story that involved crime, lots of flirting, and book lovers. Even though there was some darker moments I felt like it was a light read with steamy momenta that could make anyone blush. I can’t believe I haven’t already picked up Ms.Armentrout’s work before this and I plan to check out The Wait For You series as soon as possible because after reading this I want to know more about secondary characters too. I can’t wait to pick up more of her books either.
Abby Erickson was a character that worked as a Freelance Editor. She was finally in a place where she wanted to date again when she happened upon something she wasn’t meant to see. I loved her love of books and Authors. She was sweet and funny. I hated that she judged herself harshly. In my opinion she was a very likable heroine. In the end I hoped she’d get a book-worthy romance of her dreams and she would be safe.
Colton Anders was a character who worked as a detective. He cracked me up and I really enjoyed how much of a flirt he was. I liked that he was a sexy hero without even trying. During certain points I didn’t know whether I wanted to smack him or kiss him. I hoped in the end he’d prove my assumptions about him wrong.
Stripped Down –
4.5 Wedding Hookups Stars!!
This was my first time reading Ms.James work and I loved every hilarious sexy second of it!! Holy cow this is one hot as fire Novella!! I liked that even though there was a lot of physical stuff going on between the main characters there was something more meaningful hidden between them in my opinion. It was hilarious, sweet, shocking, and sexy. There was a lot of moments and situations that I did not expect which was pleasant surprises. Wedding Hookups never amount to anything but a one night stand. . . or do they? Definitely checking out the Blacktop Cowboy series as soon as possible!!
Melissa Lockhart and Wynton Grant meet which leads to sparks flying or better yet lust. I loved how they both had sort of the same type of humor and they could joke together without one taking offense. They both had their own secrets to his but when one thing led to another everything began to come out. It was cool that their relationship had a bit of mysterty to it the sense I had no clue if they’d be more or not and I liked to keep guessing. The nicknames they had left me in tears. It was interesting to uncover the heroines past and what the hero went through in the present was heartbreaking.
Rage / Killian –
This was my first time reading both Ms.Ivy and Ms.Wright’s work as well as my first time reading a shifter book that involved a different animal other than a wolf or bear which was quite refreshing and very unique. I liked that it was Pumas which after reading this story I found them to be quite the fascinating creatures. Plus I love shifters so both stories were right up my alley. When two authors combine their talents to create awesome worlds it makes me so incredibly happy. I loved how it all took place in Louisiana and I could picture the outdoors rather clearly. Rage and Killian were both steamy stories with great build ups.
There’s a thin line between love and hate. . .
Rage was a character who was a Hunter. He was quite full of himself at times but I liked how in certain situations he went full on alpha. I wanted to smack him a few times. I was glad that there was more to him than meets the eye. Lucie Gaudet was a character who knew Rage all too well and especially his reputation. She was a tech wiz and many people sought her out. I loved how she stood her ground and was feisty. The hate that they had each other couldn’t be denied nor could the attraction but would they give into temptation?
Killian O’Roarke was a character that was human but had accidentally gotten Pantera DNA in his system that he wanted gone quick. He was kick butt take names later sort of guy and lived for his job. He was intense to say the least but with a bit of a romantic side that made him oh so appealing! Rosalie was a character who had lost the love of her life and the person she was destined to be with forever. The hatred for humans came easily until she comes face to face with Killian. Would hate be all that their is between them or would other emotions creep in?
Dragon King –
This was my first time reading Ms.Grant’s work and enjoyed getting lost in a world where Dragon shifters do indeed exist. Now this is the second new animal shifter type of romance for me which makes me smile to no end. Dragon King is a realistic meets fantasy type of paranormal read that I couldn’t get enough of. It was cool and fun to learn new terms when entering Arian’s world. It was a different type of read for me in a sense and a wonderful change of pace. I’ll definitely check out more of The Dark Kings for sure.
Grace Clark was a character that was a writer. Coming to a standstill in the writing department she needed a change of scenery and Scotland was just the place to escape to. Getting inspiration just as a storm hit she never expected when she took cover that she’d meet a man who’d turn her world upside down. She wasn’t a risk taker. She was kind but would stand up for herself as well. Arian was a character who awoke from a longer slumber. Being the Dragon King wasn’t easy and he always jumped into things head first. During the beginning I had a strong distaste for him but as things progressed (Even though I hated some of his actions) he won me over. When a writer and a dragon meet doubts arise and sparks fly.
This was my second time reading Ms.Yarros work and once again she stole my heart with this romance!! It’s realistic, sexy, heartbreaking, and frustrating. Two friends cross a line but they’ve been teetering on it for years and the leap of faith may just be worth the risk. Things weren’t always perfect but rather far from it with beauty rising from the ashes. It dealt with serious situations and showed what it truly means to fight for love no matter the distance. Family was a big factor in ignite which I loved even though some of the relationships were strained. Ms.Yarros has a way of making tear up and blush with her stories!! I can’t wait to check out Point of Origin and more of her work!!
Avery Claire was a character who spent the majority of her life taking care of others and never herself. Worry always seemed to settle in her mind for those that she cared about especially River. She was very strong willed and would say exactly how she felt even if it hurt her the process. My heart broke for her on multiple of occasions. I loved her relationship with her sister Adeline and how she took care of her. In the end I hoped that she would take control of her life and not toss love aside.
River Maldonado was a character who lived to fight fires it was in his blood which he inherited from his father. With his brother Bishop by his side he moved to Alaska to do just that. Meeting a girl changed everything for him even though they were just friends he wanted more. Moving back home wasn’t in the cards but expect the unexpected. the struggles that he went through and how torn he was at times. I loved how he cared about Avery and her sister. He was tough as can be but a sweetheart as well.
Fated Identity –
This was my first time reading Ms.Layne’s work and liked how suspenseful it was!! I honestly dont think ive ever read a romance that features the CIA so this was new territory for me which made me ecstatic. It was a short read with a depth to it that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering how certain thingsa would unfold for not only the main characters but the secondary ones as well. It touches on loss , what it means to fight attraction, and filled with action that keeps you entertained. Hope to check out more of Ms.Layne’s work soon!
Grady Kenton was a character who had a past that haunted him. Losing someone of great importance to him changed in some ways who he was. Working with the CIA is what he lived to do and it didn’t hurt that the woman who caught his fancy worked right along with him. I understood where he was coming from but i also disliked his actionsa at times. Briennne Chaylse was a character that worked in the CIA with Grady. She wasn’t one to go down without a fight and It was nice that her determination didn’t waver. I understood her need to confront Grady on his past. The tension between the hero and the heroine could have been cut with a knife but It made me happy that it didn’t mess with how they worked their jobs.
I highly recommend this bundle to anyone looking for something that has a little bit pof everything for all romance readers alike. There’s not one same book and I think that’s what makes it so perfect because you can find whatever story you are in the mood for and read it. The hot factor for all of these stories combined would have to be a ten! You’ll be blushing, smiling, laughing, and engrossed in no time!! I can’t pick a favorite either it’s too difficult. If you haven’t already One-Clicked Buy it today!! I hope you enjoy it!! 🙂
About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Six Authors-
About Jennifer L. Armentrout:
#1 New York Times and #1 International Bestselling author Jennifer lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russell Loki.
Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories….which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. She is published with Spencer Hill Press, Entangled Teen and Brazen, Disney/Hyperion and Harlequin Teen. Her book Obsidian has been optioned for a major motion picture and her Covenant Series has been optioned for TV. Her young adult romantic suspense novel DON’T LOOK BACK was a 2014 nominated Best in Young Adult Fiction by YALSA.
She also writes Adult and New Adult contemporary and paranormal romance under the name J. Lynn. She is published by Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.
About Lorelei James:
Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.
From Lorelei: “Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.”
About Alexandra Ivy:
Alexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Todaybestselling author. From Alexandra: “I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.
Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.
Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!
I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.
About Laura Wright:
Laura Wright is a New York Times and USA Todaybestselling author. From Laura: “Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.”
About Donna Grant:
Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae.
She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.
Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.
About Rebecca Yarros:
Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and lover of all things chocolate, coffee, and Paleo. In addition to being a mom, military wife, and blogger, she can never choose between Young Adult and New Adult fiction, so she writes both. She’s a graduate of Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but still holds out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog the last two years, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding the military life she adores.
When she’s not writing, she’s tying on hockey skates for her kids, or sneaking in some guitar time. She is madly in love with her army-aviator husband of eleven years. They finally can call Colorado home along with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog.
About Kennedy Layne:
“First and foremost, I love life. I love that I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister…and a writer.
“I am one of the lucky women in this world who gets to do what makes them happy. As long as I have a cup of coffee (maybe two or three) and my laptop, the stories evolve themselves and I try to do them justice. I draw my inspiration from a retired Marine Master Sergeant that swept me off of my feet and has drawn me into a world that fulfills all of my deepest and darkest desires. Smoldering romance, military men, intrigue, with a little bit of kinky chili pepper (his recipe), fill my head and there is nothing more satisfying than making the hero and heroine fulfill their destinies.
“Thank you for having joined me on their journeys…”
