Brooke is a Solsti that controls the element of water. After her sister Nicole meets and mates with the Lash Demon Gunnar Brooke agrees to hone her skills with Nicole, and Rilan, the leader of the watchers. Kai is one of the watchers who live at the mansion that has affectionately become known as demon central. He is attracted to Brooke at first site, but the two strong personalities do not mesh at all. Now they have been sent on a quest, and must rely upon each other to make it home alive. They soon realize maybe they don’t dislike each other after all!
Brooke is a beauty who is every bit as powerful as her Solsti sister Nicole. The sisters have a bond that cannot be broken, not because they are Solsti, but because they are family. Kai has had everything taken from him. He has lived a life that was beyond brutal, and he got a chance to belong when he became a watcher. Both characters are tough and persistent, and oh so sexy!
Sharon Kay has made a fan out of me with her fast paced storytelling. Wicked Waves is exciting and edgy as well as erotic. The first two Solsti novels are just about as close to perfection as you can get! Wicked Waves is sultry with a huge element of danger and peril, and although you are on the edge of your seat the whole time you are reading the novel is fun!
So far the Solsti Prophecy books have been pure enjoyment for me. I am waiting with bated breath for the third book to arrive. If you haven’t checked out this supernatural gem yet I must ask, “What are you waiting for?”

Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth.
Kai’s duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it. Females? They’re drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.
For all Nicole knew she was a human, just a human with a unique ability. Nicole has the power to command the wind, manipulating it to her will. Her sister Brooke has a gift of her own. One night they use their special abilities and their martial arts experience to save a woman, and this begins their mission of vigilante saviors. Gunnar is a Lash Demon, a watcher, who witnesses Nicole’s power and is immediately drawn to the beautiful young woman. Nicole learns about things she never imagined existed from the sexy demon, she also never imagined the red hot desire she would harbor for him.
Nicole is an awesome kick ass heroine. She and her sisters have been through more in their short years than anyone should have to endure, and yet they hold strong and positive. Her bravery in the face of danger is astounding. Gunnar oozes alpha sex appeal. He is a warrior, and a protector, to be reckoned with. He has had a tortured past and now resides with other watchers taking care of dangerous paranormal creatures on earth and other realms.
I loved this novel! Kay has written a very intriguing story full of adventure and blinding hot passion. I appreciated her writing style. Her consideration to detail illustrated a world that the reader becomes hopelessly lost in. This was one of those books that I did not want to end. After the last page my mind screamed for more.
Paranormal lovers grab your TBR list and add Sharon Kay’s Wicked Wind to it! The book is chock-full of every supernatural being you can imagine, and quite a few you can’t! This smart and seductive novel gets the Solsti Prophecy series off to a great start!
Publication Date:January 20, 2014
Born with the ability to command the wind, Nicole Bonham dispenses her own brand of vigilante justice in Chicago’s worst neighborhoods. Stealth and surprise are always on her side.
Lash demon Gunnar prowls Earth and several supernatural realms to help maintain peace among the immortal species. His chance encounter with Nicole creates a hurricane of sparks between them, and he won’t rest until she is his.
They race to solve a series of supernatural attacks in the city. Nicole’s true identity brings the attention of the crazed demon behind them, even as her passion for Gunnar binds them together, body and soul.
Cole and Sera are still fighting for their freedom. It doesn’t matter to them that the love they share is forbidden, all that matters is that they remain together for eternity. Freedom will not come easy for them, despite the trials they have already been through their toughest obstacles are yet to come.
Sera has always been a strong character, but I adored her in this book. She truly blossomed into a warrior, standing by her demon lover through thick and thin. Cole is still his smart assed self, but his adoration for his angel has never been clearer. My Demon’s Destiny brings new characters, however, as to not give anything away, I am afraid I will have to leave the readers in anticipation!
Dawn and Jakz wowed me with the grand finale to the My Demon Trilogy. These books improved with each one, and I truly became engrossed in the whole story. Heart pounding excitement is the flavor of this last novel! Of course when Cole and Sera are involved the heat factor is cranked up full blast! I consumed this thrilling story in one sitting, I couldn’t stop myself! My Demon’s Destiny picked up exactly where My Demon Determined left off, and let me just say there is no rest for the wicked!
I am feeling a little bereft knowing that the end of the trilogy has come, but at the same time I am left anticipating what comes next from Dawn and Jakz!
Publication Date: April 29, 2014
Just when Sera and Cole thought they were finally on the home stretch, their happily-ever-after just within reach, an unforeseen obstacle rears its ugly fangs. Each blindsided with their own brand of torture, they’re forced to discover what they’re truly made of. With new factions emerging, complicating their already problematic circumstances, heartbreaking sacrifices and startling revelations are made, even as intense confrontations hike the tension higher. As they battle for each other, and their very immortal lives, the conclusion to their love story becomes one of legends. Don’t miss the fiery finish to this forbidden couple’s tale of epic devotion.
Cole is determined to hold on to his beautiful angel Sera, and she is willing to follow her demon lover anywhere; even if that means following him into the bowels of the Underworld. The Underworld is exactly where the pair flee, a place where the other angels will not dare tread, so Sera won’t be taken from him again. However, this arrangement is temporary as Cole and Sera embark on a quest for freedom.
It is more than apparent that Cole and Sera have grown even closer. There is nothing one would not give up for the other. I love their contrast in character; the dark and the light. Just because Sera is an angel don’t think for a moment that she doesn’t harbor the ability to walk on the mischievous side! In this book I found her to be more brave and confident while still keeping her sweet and inquisitive nature. Cole was protective of Sera before, but now he has taken that to new levels. His protectiveness makes him a very sexy alpha male, and his sly sense of humor is charming.
In my review of the first book My Decadent Demon, I had mentioned the flow of the book being a bit broken. That was totally rectified in My Demon Determined. Dawn and Jakz drew me in on a smooth ride full of adventure, danger, humor, and mind blowing sex! I must say this read was a joy! The creatures in the book are so unique and imaginative! It was so fun to read about encounters with creatures I have never imagined!
I cannot wait to read the last book of the spellbinding My Demon Trilogy. I am giving a huge thanks to Dawn and Jakz for this erotic paranormal fantasy.
Publication Date:October 15, 2013
“Into the bowels of hell I would follow you.”
“Good because that’s exactly where we’re going.”
Never in her wildest nightmares did Seraphina see herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have seen it coming. Sera’s kin would never let her go and that was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm where the vilest of depravity thrives only adds to Cole’s problems. Now he must keep Sera safe from not only her kind, but his debauched brethren as well. Even Cole’s demon-half has become more volatile, the constant subjection to evil taking its toll. His world is no place for an angel. He needs to find a solution so he can get her the hell out of there.
And he needs to find it fast.
When the opportunity arises to finally solve their dilemma, he jumps at it with talon-claws swinging. But it’s a dangerous mission – and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?

Seraphina is a Seraph, a member of the highest order of Angels. She is young for her kind and still training. When she has her first vision it is of a gorgeous man that she can’t get out of her head, and she cannot rest until she finds him. When Sera tracks down Cole he is just as smitten. They spend days together getting to know each other and burning up the sheets in the process. Then she finds out his true nature, Cole is a demon; brokenhearted she leaves him behind. After 100 years Cole is still in her heart and she decides to peek in on him. She doesn’t expect the things to come!
Seraphina lives among the angels and before Cole had not been in the mortal world. I perceive her character as being a little naïve. In ways she is almost childlike. She is definitely a curious being, and all of these factors make her interesting and charming. Even after 100 years Sera retains many of the same qualities. When we meet Cole he is torn over what he is. When he first meets Sera he seems almost as sweet and naïve as she! A hundred years just makes Cole sexier! He has embraced his demon, and I love his mischievous demeanor as well as his witty and sarcastic ways.
A story about the relationship between an Angel and Demon is quite intriguing! That was the first thing that captured me. Then there is the wicked sexiness, Cole is decadent indeed! He and Sera have chemistry that shouldn’t be happening and it is HOT! The third thing that drew me in was Cole. When he embraced who he was he became even more attractive. I loved his attitude, and he made me laugh. Authors Dawn and Jakz did a very good job with the book. The only problem I had were a few small areas that lacked good flow, and for a moment I felt like I missed something. I am still giving the story a four star rating because of the positives I thought the story possessed.
My Decadent Demon is the first book in the My Demon Trilogy. Fans of both paranormal and erotica reads are sure to enjoy this one! I for one plan to continue on with this delightful and spicy storyline!

A commander of the Validus bloodline Winter stands sentinel to Lord Hyperion. Winter is loyal to his family, but has become attracted to a young woman named Nika. He has watched her grow from a girl to a woman and she has invaded his mind and heart. One night he hears screams, and recognizes Nika’s voice. He comes upon her being attacked by werewolves. He saves her life, but is not quick enough to save her from the bite that will make her his enemy. To love Nika is forbidden and would require him to choose between duty, family, and love.
The chemistry between Winter and Nika is lovely and very romantic. I admired Winter’s strength which was a compliment to Nika’s softness. She had noticed Winter as she was growing up and the attraction was not one sided. Although she only ever saw his eyes, she was able to read into them something that called to her heart. Lord Hyperion is also a fascinating character. He seems to have a bit of a mischievous nature. I look forward to seeing more of him in the future.
Winter’s Kiss is a story of forbidden love and passions, but I also found it very romantic. In my opinion, Heaton just continues to improve on the series as she goes along. Once I had this novel in my hands I could not put it down. As I have said before, getting lost in one of Heaton’s fantasy worlds is always a pleasure.
Seventh Circle is the fourth book in the Vampire Realm Series. Lincoln was entered into a pact with the devil by the Lord of the Vehemens. Only one can help him, Lilith, a vampire hunter. Lilith is an Elite Hunter with special abilities, and a strong hatred for vampires. She was angered by having to take Lincoln on as a client. She was confused when she started to have feelings for him. Now they work together to fulfill a destiny that will greatly affect them both.
Lilith is an amazing female. Her extraordinary gifts bring forth a darkness within that allows her to fight. She is at odds with her gift in the beginning, but it was exciting when she started to move on to embrace it. Lincoln is the Chosen Son of the Vehemens and violence rules him. The magnetism between Lincoln and Lilith weighs heavy even when Lilith is fighting the lure of the gorgeous vampire. I am partial to this interesting pair. I was also happy to see Prophecy, Valentine, and Venturi make an appearance. I am hoping future books will elaborate on the dynamics of their relationship.
I found Seventh Circle to be very exciting. Although I liked the Prophecy Trilogy very much I liked this one even better. I cannot say anything about Heaton I have not said before. She is an amazing storyteller. One aspect that I really enjoy about the series is that the vampires do not cater to the human race. They are driven to survive, and that means there is no guilt over the kill. They have the ability to mate and love, but their species is not sugar coated.
Vampire lovers will not want to miss out on this series! If you are a fan of werewolves or demons do not despair, there is a little something for you too. This is a paranormal series you can really dig your claws into!
The time has come. Prophecy is leading her allies to war for the battle that will either save their kind or destroy them all. She has had many trials, and she has made mistakes along the way; but now she must concentrate on moving forward to fulfill her destiny and hope that she and Valentine both make it through together.
Prophecy has transformed from a girl into a warrior, and she is nothing short of spectacular. Valentine’s love for her is true, and the magic that binds them is testament to that. However, she has feelings for Venturi. She has to come to terms that she loves him too, but Valentine is the one she has the strongest feelings for. What I admired about Venturi is that although he was hurting he remained loyal to Prophecy.
This was an exciting ending to the Prophecy Trilogy. It was action packed and emotional. There will be times you find yourself biting your nails trying to anticipate what is going to happen next! Once again, Heaton does a very impressive job. I have become a huge fan of Felicity Heaton’s writing. She is a wonderful storyteller, and she does it in a way that you become completely lost in the world she lays out for you.
I do have to stress that these are books with a continuing story and should be read from the beginning. I am looking forward to continuing on with the Vampire Realm series.
