4 out of 5 LicksFireborne Series, Book 1 Coming August 27, 2013
Aziza Jane Stewart is living on borrowed time, and making a few mistakes in London seems like a good way to go out with a bang. But when two compelling strangers draw her into an ancient conflict, she realizes her curse isn’t about death at all…it’s about the power within her.
The sexy giant following her says he can smell trouble on her skin, the smokeless fire and magic of the demons he was born and bred to hunt. Brandon may be an enforcer, but his reaction to her is anything but adversarial. Ram, her new Jinn shadow, will do whatever it takes to come between them, and he’s just as hard for Aziza to resist.
When her dark family legacy burns to the surface, whom can Aziza trust? The alpha male who pushes all her hot buttons, the Jinn who seduces her in dreams, or the emerging Fireborne within? As danger circles closer, she must learn to embrace her newfound powers—and trust someone with her heart—before she becomes the final casualty.
Warning: Explicit content, magic, danger, voyeurism, chains, a secret ménage and carnal deeds of devilish debauchery at every other turn. Basically…fasten your seatbelts and get ready to burn.
What a wild ride! This book wrapped me up in its spell and kept me enthralled all the way to the end. Magical beings and sex, oh my! I have not read any paranormal/kink books up until now but oh boy, am I looking forward to reading book 2 and however many books are to follow in this series!
The heroine of the story, Aziza Jane Stewart, is sure that she is living on borrowed time, the victim of a curse that had taken her mother and brothers away from her at 2 year intervals. Her mother ran away from her children’s Egyptian father to try to protect them but was unable to do anything to halt the inevitable. Now Aziza is the last in her family and with the 2 year mark once again approaching she is determined to live life to the fullest and make her way through her own bucket list. Aziza is in London with her best friend Greg and her Aunt Penn, enjoying all the city has to offer (one of the ‘offerings’ turning out to be really hot outdoor sex with a very attractive supernatural being) But Aziza finds out that it’s not her own death that she should be concerned about but the fact that she is a Fireborne, an otherworldly being with powers that she must learn to control.
I have to admit that I got a bit confused with the different magical beings and factions that were after her and the reasons why they wanted her but that’s probably just me being unused to the paranormal genre. I loved the sex scenes which were really hot especially the ménage sequence in the barn with……well, I will leave that to you to find out for yourselves but it had me squirming in my seat it was so yummy!!!
I greatly admire an author who is able to come up with such detailed other worlds and R.G. Alexander has done an excellent job with interesting characters and plenty of unanswered questions to make you want to dive right into the next book. I highly recommend this book to lovers of the paranormal genre and would suggest that those of you who, like me, have not really been interested in this type of story to read it. You won’t be disappointed.
