My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t even know where to start. This book had a lot of heat. I thought the book was quite long. Did not expect it to end the way that it did.
I liked the book mostly. The way Vaughn spoke to Xena sometimes really annoyed me. I get what the author was trying to
Do but it seemed a bit much….to much in my opinion. Then the turn of events….wow! I feel like the book could’ve ended like 30 pages sooner. With that being said I cannot wait for the next book to see what happens.
I liked most of the characters in the book for
Most of the book until the end and saw how some people can really be.
Personal feelings aside, the book was well written, there is ALOT of graphic scenes. Usually I dont care but id say out of like 400 pages, at least 350 of it was some sort of BDSM / sexual scenes.

Vaughn's Xena (Dirty Rockhard Series, #1)Vaughn’s Xena by M.I. Rosegold
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, Vaughn’s Xena was one of the smuttiest books I have read in a while. If you like a raunchy, best friend’s brother trope, this one is for you. This story is about a college student named Xena who fantasizes about her roommate’s (and best friend’s) brother, Vaughn. Vaughn is a wealthy, handsome, fit man, but one who is also private and apparently hates women, besides his sister, Ronnie. Vaughn has not been seen with a woman for quite some time and he seems to be super private, Xena knows from the start that her fantasies will stay just that. But, on a weekend break, Xena and Ron go to stay at Ronnie’s mansion and her brother is making the trip too. Xena comes to find out that Vaughn has been pining for her for a very long time. This is the start of their raunchy adventures. Xena, while very happy that Vaughn also wants her, she is worried about Ronnie. Will she be mad at Xena for being with Vaughn? Will the sibling relationship, which is very strong, weaken by this development? These questions haunt Xena so the relationship starts as a secret and we all know that never ends well! Will they be able to all find a way to be happy?
I enjoyed this book! I thought that the characters were loveable, but it has to be your cup of tea. Vaughn, well he is just all man, but he is the jealous and possessive, somewhat stalker type. What I love about him though is that the domination mainly revolves around the aspects of sex, in the real world he is always proud of Xena and how she handles business. He is also always showing her how he thought about her in many of the decisions that he made which was sweet. Xena is a quiet, secret sex craze woman, but one that knows what she wants. There are very vivid and explicit sex scenes and degradation – so if that isn’t for you don’t read. It is a story that progresses pretty fast, with feelings -one-day “strangers” and the next they are “in love”. I will say that one thing that really annoyed me, and it is probably just a “me” thing, was that the author said “gosh” a good amount. Now, this word normally doesn’t bother me, but when you are vividly stating what is happening, with all the juicy words that go with it, but then constantly say “gosh” it just throws off the vibe for me. Overall though, it was a pretty good read.

An erotic romance for those that love them. Vaughn has it bad for Xena (his little sister’s college friend). I can’t share anymore or I’ll give away secrets. You’ll have to read it for yourself. It’s a hot story and has a bit of everything in it. The story is good and the characters are well-written. For fans of the erotic, this may be a winner. It’s 1 of 2 books.

This book is absolutely kinky and not for everyone. With that being said, oh my lanta be still my beating heart! This book was very well done bringing healthy kink out to light and some of the other sides to kink. It was written very well and there was absolute depth to the characters that were simply refreshing. Vaughn being single most of his life has set a very high bar, that at times seems hard for any woman to reach. But in comes his little sister’s best friend Xena who blows all of his expectations out of the water by having some secrets to unveil herself. This book was a delight to read and I can’t wait for the next one to come out!

First book by this author and holy hell did I love it! I can’t wait to read the next one! Vaughn is a true alpha male and he loves control! And xena loves it! She’s his sisters best friend! Which is a trope I absolutely love. The spice, steam…HOT. The descriptions and the way the author describes every detail is absolutely amazing. I felt so many feelings while reading this book and that’s what I love. If you can make me feel happy, sad, angry, on edge, turned on…that’s a great book in my opinion. The chemistry between Vaughn and Xena is amazing and I’m so glad I read this book! Huge page Turner for me.

Vaughn’s Xena is the first book in the Dirty Rockhard Billionaire series by M.I. Rosegold. This is the first book that I have read by this author, so I really had no idea about what to expect from one of her stories. But the blurb piqued my interest, so I snapped up a copy to explore.
This is an erotic romance with a little sister’s best friend/college/taboo element, a bit of a kinky storyline (BDSM, humiliation, degradation, public play, edging, spanking, bondage, oral s@x, unprotected/raw sex scenes, spit etc), secrets, chemistry, sizzle, angst, and drama.
The story held the promise of a captivating read and has all the ingredients that should have made it a 5-star read for me- but unfortunately, I just couldn’t connect with the characters, or their story. I also had trouble settling into the author’s writing style.
There were times that I felt quite uncomfortable in the story, and that had nothing to do with the content, as I don’t have any triggers- but felt that mu discomfort was more to do with the way the story was written- it seemed quite choppy at times (for me). I also felt that the dialogue, at times, didn’t fit the characters/scene/or circumstances. And there was a lot of dialogue. And a LOT of information, that at times, seemed surplus to the actual story. Which was quite distracting.
I really wanted to love this story so much, but just couldn’t find my groove with it. I can see by other reviews that I seem to be the only one who feels this way….. so don’t let my opinion put you off exploring the story for yourself and making up your own mind.
I have decided to revisit this book again in a few weeks to see if I still feel the same way about it as I do now, or maybe I will find my groove next time and discover that I was just having an off reading day this time around.
Stay tuned.
Happy Reading…

Thank you, M.I. Rosegold!

This is a new author for me which I enjoyed reading. This is the first book in this series and what a great start it is. I can’t wait for book two. I enjoyed reading this romance story. A story about breaking rules to get what you want. I enjoyed how the characters were able to pull me into the story with ease. I found them to be relatable and steamy. I enjoyed how they brought life to the story as well as hard to put down. I found this book to be fast paced and engaging. There is great growth of not only the characters but the plot as well. They have great chemistry which just added to the story for me. I really enjoyed what the characters brought to the story. I highly recommend this book.

This is the first book in the Dirty Rockhard Billionaire series. The author does an amazing job with this story. They descriptions and details that the author puts in really brings the story to live and paints pictures in the readers mind so strong if feels like your there.
I always love an Alpha male and Vaughan is definately an Alpha male. His feelings and possessiveness over Xena can sometimes feel a bit much but there is no denying that Xena loves that side of him. She has fantasised about him for a long time but she is completely blown away when fantasy meets reality.
The only downside and possible problem is that Xena is Vaughan’s sister’s best friend and that a line he promised not to cross. But can they deny themselves something that feels meant to be?
This is a very hot steamy read. It will have you laughing, crying and feeling so many different emotions through the story it will feel like a rollercoaster ride.

Vaughn’s Xena is the first of two books and the first book I have read by this author and I look forward to delving in to more of her work. It is a little sister’s college best friend setting. There are a lot of feels in this story, from laughter to disappointed to frustrated to madness and even some in-between.
Vaughn Wolf is our main man and his surname is totally fitting. He knows what he wants and usually gets it. He likes control and likes to be in charge.
Xena has a secret that is buried down deep and belies her being a good girl. She knows what she likes, what she needs, what she craves. Now she knows just where she can get it.
There is steam, sizzle, and it’s oh so kinky. It is enough to leave you hot under your collar.
M.I. is a descriptive writer so it is so easy to conjure up imagines and imagine our MC’s and the journey that they are on. You are only limited by your own imagination.
You need to settle in for a spicy time when you read this book. I am going to let you discover it all by yourself.
I am waiting for book 2 of the series─ “Xena’s Vaughn” that is coming soon.

He is obsessive and territorial. Controlling and kinky. He is a stalker. He is Vaughn. And he loves only one woman—his little sister’s best friend—Xena.

Vaughn Wolf is a charming, confident, and sexy man, the owner of a chain of luxurious nightclubs. He has been single for a long time, waiting for his perfect girl. A girl who will be able to match him and his desires in every way possible. A perfect match from God to him.

And here comes Xena Meyer. A sharp, fierce, and gorgeous woman with her perfect, sweet, dangerous curves. She has always been a good girl, but she has a secret. A dirty secret embedded within her.

Then, when fate crosses her path with Vaughn Wolf for good, she knew right away that her time to spill all her secrets has come. There was no way out of it.

Also, (un)fortunately, Xena is Vaughn’s little sister’s college best friend. Someone he shouldn’t even think of initiating anything.

But rules are meant to be broken, right?

Especially when she is the girl you have been waiting for forever?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this set! I haven’t read many sifter books outside of the normal werewolves and such, so I was super excited about this set after reading the first book. I am so happy that I gave then a read! I defiantly recommend this set to anyone how loves shifter romance books. Día has been on the run for years. She is always watching her back, changing the way she looks, and always always running. She’s been on the run from hunters trying to keep her family safe, but her luck so far has just run out. She gets caught. But not by hunters! She stumbles onto a colony in hiding and they don’t trust outsiders. This bat shifter and witch colony has been through a lot and many of them are sick and dying. They can’t trust anyone and two strangers showing up on the same day worries them. Her fellow captive (the other stranger) just so happens to be an ex-lover who betrayed her years ago and brought the hunters to her family. Kano regrets so much in his life. Not being able to stop the slaughter of Día’s tribe and family being the biggest of all. He can’t believe his eyes when he drug into colony and he sees her alive. He’s been so focused on his journalism and putting the worst of the worst into the lime-light and behind bars. He can’t escape his own guilt and seeing Día brings it all rushing back. Again. When he gets taken by the bat colony he doesn’t know what he is in for. Día plans to run as soon as she can. She can’t be around him and she needs to find her group and make sure that they are okay. Milos, one of the bat shifters feels like something bad is coming. He can feel it in his gut. So when Día and Kano stumble onto the camp his gut stabs him with fear again. He just wants to protect his colony, find a cure to their sickness, and live! With their leader dying he must do something, anything to help their fast decreasing colony members. When someone from Kano’s past comes and threatens the colony the three of them must put their mistrust aside and fight together. Putting fears behind you can be tricky when fighting for your life. Will they come together and defeat their enemy? Or will history repeat itself. Will fear keep these three from saving everyone? Will Día kill Kano for his part in her family’s slaughter? Will Kano admit his mistakes from all those years ago and get Día to forgive him? Will she be able to? Man this book has so much going on! Those three are in for a lot!! You have to read this set!! If you love shifter books and magic and love you, will love this set!!

Ember's Secret (Solstice Quartet #1)Ember’s Secret by Catherine Peace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so surprised by this book! When I first started reading it I forgot that it was about shifters. I haven’t read many “shifter” books outside of the normal werewolves and such, so I LOVED seeing some other animals being brought into the genera. Ember has a big secret and with the Solstice coming up quickly she’s not sure if she can keep that secret much longer. She want to see more people in her café and in turn be reunited with her two sisters. Her café only sees people that are passing through and she hasn’t turned a good profit in years. Cooking for people she never sees twice is lonely and not at all what she wants out of her café. Food brings people together. She wants more out of her life and she wants more for her café. But can she risk it? Austin is the host of a popular Food TV show Back Road Eats. He’s tired of the same old easy dependable American grilling and BBQ. And being on the road more and more is wearing him out. A chef tv host who’s burnt out on food! While on the way to one last round of shows before heading home his RV breaks down in the middle of no where Wyoming. Dreading the extended stay while him and his camera and editing crew wait for a part for the RV, they learn of a Maori restaurant and his interest is piqued! Sick of BBQ, burgers, and all the normal Back Road Eats he’s been eating for the past few years he is ready to try something new. Once he meets Ember and tries her food he can’t leave without getting her to do his show! He can’t believe the flavors that she brings out in all her dishes. Everything he tries, he loves! But she’s terrified and family comes first. Her father forbids anything to do with the show and he is all she has left. Family first. Can Austin get Ember to do the show? Does Ember bring her whole world down around her and put what little family she has left in danger? Will she get them killed? Will she ever get her café full of people who fall in love with her food? It’s clear that Austin loves more than just her food too! What will come of that?! Dealing with his own father drama he doesn’t want to push to hard. Does he push her away? Or will they over come fears and trials and come together? You have to read to find out!!! You won’t be disappointed!!

I definitely have to go back to the beginning and start from there to get a better understanding of everything. But I wanted to read this one when I first saw the description because of all the supernatural books I have read I’ve never read about bat and swan shapeshifters.

Book 3 in this stellar series is Dia’s story and you won’t disappointed. This is one complicated love triangle and so much more (I won’t ruin it… but steamy!)
Of 3 people who are completely broken and lost in very different ways they find exactly what they need to heal in eachother.
Dia is ambitious strong and perseveres no matter what, but she is so very broken from so much loss and is finally captured after being on the run. Who does she find in captivity? Kano, who’s already betrayed her before.
Kano and Dia will need to rely on one another to avoid danger thus start to build a bond, but then, just when things cant get more angsty… Bring in Milo to really complicate things. I won’t reveal anything that will detract from your experience as this truly is a delightful one but be prepared for love, longing, angst, drama, danger, magic, so many secrets and more!
This is a well built story with great characters and I look forward to the 4th book.

This is the third book in this series and I wouldn’t say you have to read the previous two books to be able to read this one, however I do believe it is a good idea to read them in order. This book took me on an adventure of shapeshifters, magic, romance, danger, action, and great characters. The author wrote this story with a great deal of detail so it was easy to immerse myself into the story. The characters have been through a lot of heartache in their past that they are trying to overcome to create a better future. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Dia’s Lure was the first book that I read in the series, but I’ll absolutely be going back to read the first two now. This adventure was amazing! Dia has been trying to keep herself and her family safe, but her tribe ends up being slaughtered. Dia herself is captured and discovers she is being held with her ex-lover, Carver. She is faced with all of the hurtful past again and wants to escape immediately. Carver knows he is far from perfect and has tried his entire life to right his wrongs, but seeing Dia again throws gas on his fire of guilt. Milos is an unexpected third in this triangle, but they all need to rely on each other to survive. Can they do it, or will guilt and distress cause them to make a fatal error?

Catherine Peace is a marvelous author! I cannot believe I’ve never read any of her books before. I’ll be picking up the rest of this series and seeing what other adventures she has to offer. I highly recommend picking up Dia’s Lure!

I read this book not realizing it was book 3 in the series, and honestly that didn’t really matter. I wasn’t as lost as I thought I was going to be. It was like this book had its own little story from the first two. I will be going back and reading the other ones because I really couldn’t put this book down. I absolutely loved the way others imagine and preserve the fantasy part. This romance paranormal book really had it all from romance, love, action, twist and turns, redemption, a little erotic and bat shifter. The chemistry that is in the book between Dia and milo which was unexpected was interesting to know if there will be more to that story. But with Dia mate around but Dia is upset that he could be the reason that her people aren’t around anymore. there’s so much that was going on in this book I couldn’t put it down and really want to know more of what is going on in Dia’s life. The world building in each separate character is amazing and who each one waves into each other’s is just phenomenal, highly recommend this book.

As I have not read the other previous books, I was intrigued by the beautiful cover and decided to read this 3rd book of the series and it is quite good! The writing is descriptive and beautiful. I really loved Dia’s story and trying to not only keep her family safe but also herself after being hunted and the aftermath of her tribe being destroyed. When Dia is eventually captured…she see’s another person as well in captivity…none other than Kano…whom betrayed her long ago……Dia and Kano work together to save each other from danger and also in the mix with Milos as well?

This is a really good read..I love the different type of shifters, love the paranormal aspect and some danger and sizzle. I definitely want to circle back and check out the first two books in the series and looking forward to book 4!

Dia’s Lure is the third book in this series. I would strongly recommend reading the books in order so you get a complete understanding of the characters and the story.

This is a paranormal fantasy romance. I loved the elements of danger in it and the different characters. The author does an amazing job of bringing these fantasy characters to life. I didn’t read the first 2 books but that didn’t stop my enjoyment of this book. I will however be going back to read the series from the beginning.

Dia is a very interesting character. All her life she has been on the run from hunters because of what she can become. She is a strong willed and resourceful character however she does have a sense of sadness and loneliness about her because she can’t let people in and the one person she did let in and loved betrayed her.

That person was Carver. Carver is a dingo shifter. He has made many questionable mistakes in his life that he regrets. The main was was hurting Dia and causing the destruction of her tribe. Now he’s free to make amends for the past and the pain he has caused but will Dia accept him and forgive him or has the damage been too much that there is no going back.

This story is definately a page turner which a slight element of fated mates has most shifter stories have but the journey for Dia and Carver to get there is definately a roller coaster of a ride you don’t want to miss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Years ago, Dia lured hunters away to keep her family safe and she’s been hiding ever since. She changed her name, her gender, her looks all to keep herself and her younger sister’s safe from their dark past.

Dia who goes by Dane, is going to help in an active warzone when a bomb goes off and shifts the bus they were in. Fight or flight kicked in and she ran until she collapsed. When she came to, she was in a camp of bat shifters who just wanted to be left alone in a world where shifters are hunted. The shifters, not knowing who or what Dia is, insist on her staying until they can trust her. The next day they get another intruder and it is Dia’s mate whom she blames for the slaughter of her tribe.

Years later and there are still feelings there. As she gets to know the bat colonies leader, Milos, she realizes that there could be something between them as well.

Kano spent years trying to find his lost love Dia while also trying to stay away to protect her. When he arrives on the scene of the bus, he picks up her scent, causing him to stumble into the camp. Instantly, Kano can tell that Dia wants nothing to do with him because of their past but he can’t help it. All the while Milos catches his eye as well.

After a lifetime of them all running, will they finally settle down and try to make something of these feelings?

As much as I enjoyed the first book of the series, this one is a lot better. There is alot more action, steam, romance. It even gets a little erotic here and there. I could not put it down.

She’s been through so much and isn’t going to let anything stop her from what she has her mind set on. You’ll also meet Kano, who lives in his emotions and lets them dictate his choices. And let’s not forget Milo. I won’t say more because this book is absolutely worth the read. Filled with action, romance, betrayal, acceptance, hope, friendship, and so much more.

Dia’s Lure (A Solstice Quartet Book) by Catherine Peace – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur.

Dia's LureDia’s Lure by Catherine Peace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dia Ngata is a young woman in hiding, she spends her life in disguise and has been hunted because of who she is for most of her life, she is a swan shifter and ever since her tribe was slaughtered overnight, she has been running from hunters and from her past. Carver Kano is a dingo shifter who has had a challenging past and a life full of regrets, but he is trying desperately to make up for them with the choices he is making now, his biggest regret is his hand in the destruction of Dia’s tribe all those years ago.

Despite all of this, Dia spends her time helping others survive against the odds, just like her, so when disaster strikes and Dia is forced to run until she can run on more and passes out in the middle of an unknown forest, however, when she wakes up, she is no longer there, instead, she is in a bed with a soft voice asking her how she is feeling. This puts Dia on edge immediately, she is not used to being looked after and is suspicious of it all, especially when she is told she cannot leave, this send her into a panic and she does everything she can to escape, albeit unsuccessfully.

While all this is happening, Kano is working on a new story as a journalist specialising in warzones and he is after his biggest prize yet, in the past he has used this job to take down the worst of the worst out there and for the most part he is successful, but on the road to his next destination, Kano comes a scene of destruction and immediately goes to help, but he is distracted when he smells Dia and he immediately goes after her, however, he finds more than he bargains for when he is captured and put in a cage.

As Dia accepts her captivity, she sees another captive and realises that it is her old flame Kano, she doesn’t know how to react and honestly, neither does he, but as they find out more about this colony’s history, they become a part of the bat shifters camp life and they find it somewhere they want to help, especially Milos, who wriggles into their hearts. One say they are confronted by danger yet again when someone from Kano’s past turns up and threatens the bats they have become close to, but can Dia, Kano and Milos work together to save the colony from this latest danger and keep themselves safe throughout this difficult task? This is a fantasy adventure where nothing is as it seems and secrets and lies seem to be a way of life which will keep you reading on until you find out what happens in the end.

Dia’s Lure (Solstice Quartet Book 3) by Catherine Peace

Dia’s Lure is the third book in the Solstice Quartet series and is a wonderfully written Paranormal/Fantasy/Romance that once you start reading there’s no stopping until you finish. I suggest reading in order as each book helps in understanding what has been going on. This is an emotional journey about being broken until they find people who make them feel worthy. My heart ached for these characters at times. This is packed with mystery, drama, humor, magic and shifters. As I don’t want to give to much away I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I’m definitely ready for the next book in this series.

Dia’s Lure (Solstice Quartet Book 3) by Catherine Peace. This is a great series. I do think you need to read the first two books to get to know the characters and understand the story better. Its the continuing story of Dia who has been on the run for years. She has self isolated and has been keeping her self from friends and family. When she runs into someone from her past things turn very unclear. Carver is a journalist and Dia has said she will never forgive him for his past mistakes. When Milos and Carver become friends things get very tricky. Will Dia be able to let anyone get close to her? Will she be able to forgive the people that have wronged her? Once Dia is captured will she be able to escape? This is a fast paced paranormal romance that will keep you reading late into the night.

If you are anything like I am, then you don’t do things in order! Dia’s Lure is the third book in the Solstice Quartet by Catherine Peace. I didn’t pay attention to the title when I picked up this book and didn’t notice that it was the 3rd book in a series. Which honestly, I didn’t pay any attention to due to the book being very entertaining. There was tension, emotion, and some steamy chemistries that were set on high-mode that definitely made for some intense reading!!
Now, I do highly recommend reading the previous books before starting on this one (you know so you’re not lost like I was at first!) it is nice to know what has happened and what is going on with some of the other characters and their backstories, this will 100% change the way that you interpret the story of Dia!
This is a story that has mystery, romance, drama, trouble, steamy chemistry, and the list goes on and on!
I definitely have to say that Catherine Peace put a lot of thought and emotion into her writing, and I thank her for that! The characters, storyline, the whole plot was very well thought out! And that ending though!!!!
I can’t wait to go back and read book 1 & 2, as well as the 4th book in the series!
Happy reading!

This is the third book in the series. I have not read the previous books and I was able to pick up on everything that’s going on in the story. That being said, it would probably make even more of an impact if I had read the previous stories.
There are a lot of things to love about this story. The world building is excellent and detailed. The characters have a lot of depth. And the story line is intriguing.
The first part of the story is a little slow, but it picks up later on and keeps you glued to the pages.
Overall, a great read!

Dia’s Lure is a paranormal fantasy romance. It is the third book in a series. I didn’t read the first two books, and while I think I would have understood a few things a bit better, I think it was fine as a stand-alone.

Dia has been on the run for years. She has very few friends and does not stay in one place for too long in an effort to keep hunters from finding her or her family. She struggles to trust others, and this shows in her interactions with a group of people she stumbles across. Add in a person from her past showing up, and things get interesting.

Carver is a very interesting character. He has had to make some hard choices in his life and is willing to bear the consequences. He and Dia have history and chemistry, and when Milos gets added in, things get spicy.

All three characters have chemistry with each other and together. It was interesting to watch how things unfolded. There was an element of ‘fated mates’ even if that wasn’t overtly talked about, as they were all drawn to each other and were quick to succumb to it.

While the main plot of this story was told, I want to know more about some of the side characters and what else happens for the swans. I look forward to reading more in this world.
