Blurb:  What would happen to a fairy without wings?

Thame is a warrior, a golden fairy who is loyal to the King and new Queen. They are on the verge of war with the Trolls. It's an ongoing battle that he fought with success...until now. The enemy captures him, cuts off his wings and strands him on the remote Aran Islands. His escape is a miracle, but the night is still young.

Breena never expects to find a half-naked man with a mutilated back in her home. Now she finds herself in the middle of a war she didn't even know existed on top of discovering she's only part human.

Can Breena heal Thame's ravaged heart?

Be Warned: anal sex, masturbation

Review:


This is actually my first fairy erotica. There were several things going on in this story, several small plots; some of the things I think could have been used for another book. The main characters were human woman Breena and Thame, a beautiful male fairy who is rescued by Breena. 

Thame has strange wounds to his back, which is basically the reason the book is entitled "The Ravaged Fairy." His wings have been cut off of him and when Breena stumbles upon him, she has to heal him. Thame is a warrior of the fairies and so not having the use of his wings makes him feel week and unable to protect his King and new Queen who is human.

The world building was beautiful. I could imagine the fairies, I could see Ireland and I could definitely see the hidden world of the fairy Kingdom. I thought that Anna Keraleigh did a beautiful job in making one feel as if they could see every little blade of grass, flowers, clouds within her world. It was exceptionally done.

The only issue I had with this story was that there were too many little sub plots going on, which caused me at one point to have to go back and reread something because I thought I had missed something. Another thing, with this being an erotica romance, the sexual tension was really, really high and when she did get around to the characters touching one another, she described those scenes very well. But there were a few times, I was right there ready for the climax (yes, pardon the pun) and then felt a bit left out of it. 

But within the pages the redeeming qualities would have to be the fact that there were a few scenes that made me laugh and endeared the myriad of characters that graced its pages to me. I am hoping that the author will write a sequel, so that some of the loose ends (the smaller plots I spoke of) will be addressed.

One thing I will suggest is that before you read this one, you should read the first book of the series called "Fairy Flavor." I didn't, and I am sure if I had, a lot of questions would have been answered within those pages. 

THE RAVAGED FAIRY gets 3 stars from me for creativity in world building, sexual tension and the laughter.

Her Accidental Angel

Title:  Her Accidental Angel
Author: Melisse Aires
Review Rating:  3
Reviewed by: Ebony Dreams
Publisher: Aspen Mountain Press

Release Date: March 2011
ISBN: 9781601684042

Book Genre: Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance


Blurb:  Kari thinks a weight loss spell in an old book is worth a try. Unfortunately, while it does make her thin, the spell is a trick that unleashes a centuries old famine demon.

Fallen Guardian Angel Rahmiel once defeated the famine demon and was bound to it so he could fight it if it ever descended to the earth again. But there is the little problem of his imprisonment in ice.  While the demons reappearance gets him back to Earth,  what he needs to stay out of prison is a bonding ceremony with a human woman--like Kari.



Review:




Wow. I have to say that this book gives a whole new meaning to the mile high club. Sex on the edge and in the arms of an angel no less. The main characters are the hero Rahmiel and the heroine Kari. 

Rahmiel is an angel that was imprisoned in ice for 8000 years and Kari is a human female who was overweight and manages to get a hold of a spell that is supposed to make her thin. I don't want to give away too much of the story but in performing the spell Kari does become thin but she manages to also summon a powerful demon and free Rahmiel from his ice prison.

Enter Hero, stage left. Rahmiel is sexy as sin (if that is even possible for a Angel, and in this case, it is). Rahmiel comes into the picture as her savior and in doing so he is also freed from his prison of ice. The sexual tension between the two is high and rises even higher as the book goes along, setting up a great tease and please. The characters in and of themselves are likable and together they become loveable and you want to see the relationship they have developed to succeed. I do feel though that the book could have been a bit spicier, though I am thinking perhaps that was part of the plan for the author to keep you wanting more.

The world building was wonderful, because I feel that the author spared no detail so basically you could actually see that world. The dialogue in the book flowed easily and made for a light read that didn't get you all bogged down in different terminology. It also begs the question, will there be a sequel? The author had enough background things happening to make you want to continue reading. 

The only issue I think I had with the book was the whole take on Kari having lost the weight and struggling with eating. Perhaps that's because it's my own issues with that subject coming. But that makes Kari more real than fantasy, right? As well as making it easier to relate to her.

All in all, I give the book 3 stars for its originality, issues and spice.

Love quote by Thomas Kempis




Love feels no burden,
thinks nothing of trouble,
attempts what is above its strength,
pleads no excuse of impossibility...
It is therefore able to undertake all things,
and it completes many things,
and warrants them to take effect,
where he who does not love would faint and lie down.
Love is watchful and sleeping, slumbereth not.
Though weary, it is not tired;
though pressed, it is not straightened;
though alarmed, it is not confounded...
~ Thomas A. Kempis ~
