Unusual Seductions signed copy Giveaway

Unusual Seductions by Tilly Greene, Cassidy K. O'Connor, Sheri Lyn, S.A. Price, Christine Alvarez, Julie Morgan 

An odd paranormal anthology, Unusual Seductions. None of these stories have a vampire, werewolf or shifter around, these reads are full of valkyrie, gargoyles, ghosts, hellhounds and demigods, 

Symphony of Night (Chronicles of the Fallen) by Julie Morgan
The veil has lowered and the human race now realizes they are not alone. We live among the supernatural, but there’s a catch; you only see them if you have the supernatural gene. Humans want to declare war, but how do you fight against a force you cannot see?
My name is Jac and I’m the last Valkyrie. My best friend and guardian, Rowan, is a gargoyle. The portal to our world has closed, keeping the supernatural trapped on earth. That is until word is out about a stone with powers to open it. It’s not just any stone, it is THE stone.
Tasked by Archangel Michael to locate this stone, I manage to pick up a band of misfits willing to help me in my quest. One of them is Kai, an Oni. Samuel, the first of the Fallen, is also out for the stone, and plans on using to his advantage. What happens if the stone falls into the wrong hands? Appearances can be deceiving, and alliances will form. Are the humans in the right for raging war, and are the supernatural justified to fight back? How do you choose who’s right, and who’s wrong?

Sex and the Supernatural by Stella Price (S.A. Price)
Sex and the Supernatural by Stella and Audra Price: Tara Gavin belongs to the Nightshade Society, an elite group that takes care of all the nasties that roam the night, especially ghosts in all their wicked incarnations. A woman with secrets of her own, she is plagued by an insatiable need for physical contact on a daily basis.
Two nights before Halloween, she's called in to save some stupid amateur ghost hunters from a house that has long been on the Society's black list, and gets trapped inside. Trapped with a sexy man with horns that is not supposed to be there.
Antaeus Folle is a demon who was tricked into the caretakership of the Hoyt Mansion and its murderous inhabitants. When all Hell breaks loose and he finds a sexy, dangerous as hell woman snagged in a trap room, he realizes that if he plays his cards right, he could end his tenure as babysitter and go back to the life he was ripped from. He just didn't count on the woman he sees as a savior being the biggest temptation he's ever had.
Having to work together, despite growing attraction on both sides, is not going to be easy. Ant will have to open his world up to another, and Tara will have to trust a demon with her life, and possibly her heart.

Sealed in Blood- The Hellbound Chronicles by Christine Alvarez
An agreement sealed in blood, forged by the blind love of a mother for her daughter, but was it the right choice?
Claire, a being created from the union of man and angel, has been hidden in plain sight, her lineage kept a secret from everyone - including herself. Kyon, a Hellhound, has been sent to collect her soul, but one look and those plans have changed.
What happens when fate intervenes? When you fall for the soul you were meant to take? Or for the being that was meant to kill you?
All Hell breaks loose and you take on the demon’s wrath.

My Name is Cer - Mythogical Messes Redux by Tilly Greene
Cerberus, the hellhound of the Underworld,is given the task to accompany his queen wherever she wants to go and she picks modern day London. The duo is ready to indulge in shopping for her and plenty of naked willing ladies for him, only they're greeted in the new world by violence. Leaving a horrifying mess of blood and bodies behind, they find a hotel and connect with Kate Bentley.
As a staff member, she sees that their every need is fulfilled and more with a visit to a lingerie shop. The playful and randy sides of Cer merge together with Kate and he can't shake what he starts feeling for her. Cer is a dog at heart, but after an erotic show, a kinky bra, Kate calling him Sir, and a couple men from Scotland Yard, there may be too many changes for them to go back to where they were.

Loving the Monster Within by Cassidy Kristi O'Connor
Penelope Harbough has dedicated her life to her job at a home for battered women and children. With such a stressful and heartbreaking job, she finds her solace in the arms of Frank – a gargoyle statue that sits atop her building watching over the city. She spills her heart to him daily while watching the sun rise. 

Asald sold his soul for the woman he loved. After upsetting the prince of Hell, he is cursed to become the monster he feared was inside him. To make up for some of the guilt, he takes it upon himself to protect the women of the shelter. A vigilante. A modern day winged Robin Hood, of sorts. Until he’s forced to reveal himself…

Goated by the Gods by Sheri Lyn
Their family cursed by the God Thor long ago, the Maddux brothers are forced to walk the earth as both goats and men. Maddening at first, the family has since learned to use their curse to their advantage and wouldn't trade it for anything, except maybe love. Finding someone to accept them- both sides- is proving difficult.
Thor feels guilty that time slipped away from him in the mortal realm, he never meant for the curse to last as long as it has. In an attempt to make up for it, Thor takes it upon himself to help the brothers find their soulmates, with the help of the Trickster god himself, Loki.
A Matchmaking service run by Thor and Loki? This should be fun, but when the gods are involved, nothing is ever easy.

My review:

DANGER! This isn’t your normal PNR. Read this only if you want to expand your idea of what PNR is. These six talented authors have stretched the boundaries of what we would call normal and introduce us to the sexy darker side. Demi-gods, Gargoyles, Demons, Angels, Hell-hounds and more.  Are you ready?

 Sex and the Supernatural by Stella Price (S.A. Price) - Tara Gavin works for the Nightshade Society protecting mundane humans from the things that go bump in the night. While rescuing some ghost hunters from their own stupidity Tara comes into her own powers and maybe has found the demon of her dreams. If horn licking turns you off skip this one.

Symphony of Night (Chronicles of the Fallen) by Julie Morgan – It is obvious that this story takes place in an established world/series but stands on its own just fine. War between the supernaturals and humans is imminent and Jac, the last Valkyrie, who is just now coming into her powers is the fortold one. She is the key to stopping it. With help from a Gargoyle, an Oni demon, an Archangel, a fallen angel and a band of misfits she can do it but at what cost? This is a fun read with a sexy ménage.

My Name is Cer - Mythogical Messes Redux by Tilly Greene – This was my favorite and is the kinkiest of the six. We all know that Cerberus is a 3 headed hellhound and the Guardian of the Underworld. What happens when he escorts Persephone, the Queen of the Underworld, to modern day London? I adored Cer. In his human form he is a big sexy puppy. He is stubborn, loyal and playful. When he meets a woman that knocks his socks off there isn’t much he wouldn’t do for her. This one will require you to believe in magic.

Sealed in Blood- The Hellbound Chronicles by Christine Alvarez – Never make a deal with a demon. They will find a way to screw you over. Claire is the daughter of an angel and a human. When she was 5 her mother was dying and summoned a demon and bound it to protect Claire. What she didn’t realize was the demon added a clause that said he got to take Claires’ soul when she turned 25. It is two days before her 25th birthday and the demon sends a human/hellhound hybrid Kyon to collect but Kyon’s hellhound side claims her for his mate. Keeping her safe is going to be a full time job.

Goated by the Gods by Sheri Lyn – m/m This story had me laughing out loud. This is a story of 3 brothers affected by a temper tantrum Thor threw a thousand years ago. Thor wants to make it right so he and Loki go into the match making business. They are going to find the 3 goat shifter brothers their mates. Much hilarity ensues.

Loving the Monster Within by Cassidy Kristi O'Connor – This is a sweet tale of redemption and love. Penelope works in a battered womens shelter and cries on the shoulder of the gargoyle on the roof. She doesn’t know he can come to life until he does to save her life. A fun sexy romp.

I love anthologies where I can try new to me authors or try new stuff from authors I know. This is a hot read that will take you to new places in your imagination.
