ENEMY TO LOVER
Kayden is obsessed with revenge after his parents disappeared when he was just a cub. Now the gorgeous Hunter has discovered the man responsible for betraying them – Joshua Ford – and it’s time for payback. Beginning with the kidnapping of Joshua’s daughter, Bianca. But last thing he expects is to be confronted with the horrifying realization that Bianca is his mate. Will he put revenge before his chance for eternal happiness?
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Sexy male model, Simon refuses to give up his exciting life in New York City to return to the slow heat of the Wildlands. For a decade, many pantera have tried to capture the rogue Diplomat and bring him home, but all have failed. Now it’s Tryst’s turn. The hard, brilliant, and gorgeous, Hunter is the ultimate tracker. But can the admitted beast-girl of the Wildlands capture her prey without losing her heart in the process?
Maybe his past had finally gotten the message.
“Can I get you something to drink?” Becca asked, following closely behind as he left the dressing room and headed for the set.
“No, thanks, darlin’. I’m good.”
The shoot was for Red Dog men’s fragrance. Something he’d never smelled or worn in his life. Fragrance, even scented soap, brought out his musk, and he couldn’t have that. The fact that he didn’t wear what he was selling didn’t seem to bother the company heads, though. Hell, they were giving him the billboard in Times Square. It was his biggest score yet, and despite the exposure issue—which would drive him underground for a year or so—he should be happy as a pig in shit. After all, the payday would fill his bank account to the brim, not to mention buy him that little house in Athens he had his eye on—the one that could serve as his “underground.” But happiness was not something he considered possible. Inside the Wildlands or living among the humans. Once stolen and ravaged, an emotion like that, so precious, so rare, was gone forever.
“All right, Simon?” the photographer called over to him.
Simon assessed the set. Craggy brick wall, gray concrete floors, plush red velvet couch. He headed for the red velvet and dropped to his knees before it. Instantly, the photographer started clicking away. He moved lithely through poses: arms stretched out wide, head falling back, check resting on the cushion, eyes eating up the lens…
Strange job, modeling. But it spoke, and encouraged, every facet of the…Goddess, could he even think the words anymore?
The Pantera within him.
Yes, he supposed he could think of it.
He grinned. His Pantera nature rose to the surface with every fierce look he threw at the camera.
The magnificence of 1001 Dark Nights is back...and this time the stories couldn't be more purrr-fect. Two tales of the wild, sexy, and very hunted Pantera shifters of Bayou Heat fame await. Told by those sirens of seduction, Alexandra Ivy and Laura Wright.
Whether you like your tale more 'shifter prince finds his lost puma-were princess. As it is with Kayden and Bianca.
Or, a gender-flipped version of Beauty And The Beast; featuring Simon and Tryst.
There is no denying that you are in for a passion filled, shifter adventure, written just as much for the head as for the heart.
With both stories mirroring each other so perfectly. It is honestly hard to believe that they weren't both penned by the same person.
There is just enough action, interrelated drama, sex, and kidnapping to hold the interest of even the finickiest reader.
And the love scenes...are roaring HOT!
Even if the insta-love is a bit 'pounce now...ask questions later'.
If you are a person who loves to see justice done, lost loves found, and who likes there 'happily...' a lot more para than normal.
Kayden and Simon is just the read for you to be curling up with.
Alexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling 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.
