Six brand new, hot paranormal romance stories from USA Today and bestselling authors. Alpha heroes and heroines with dark pasts and the need to find their own happy ever after will draw you in and make you turn to the next page.

THE HUNTED HEART by USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. When he finally takes that final step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and overcomes the past she thought she’d lost years ago.

JACKAL’S MEASURE by USA Today Bestselling Author Marie Harte

Tortured by the god of chaos for centuries, Tariq knows only duty to numb the pain. When he’s sent to collect Eden, a sexy human accused of interfering in the Games of the Gods, his missing heart beats again. But love may not be enough to save them.

ALPHA’S SACRIFICE by Rebecca Royce

Hayden Chaucer is determined to make the best life possible for his pack and is ill-prepared to discover his true mate waiting for him in his home. Worse, his mate, Chelsea, has fled the True Believers, and her ability to see the future may cost them their present.


A submissive wolf who lost it all finds herself in a mating dance with the very dominant senior enforcer who will stop at nothing to claim her.

SANGUE FEVER by Ann Mayburn

Drifting without a purpose, vampire Lisabetta finds herself yearning for something more. She finds it while hunting for her next donor. Things are not quite as they seem when she seduces an older mortal man and finds herself in danger of falling in love for the first time in centuries.


All Jubilee Spector wants is to save her brother. The last thing she expects is to stumble into a dark world and another’s war. But Fox Arada is so much more than a man, and her secret threatens to change the Watchers’ world forever.




USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

What makes a person tick? Is it the way they are raised? Perhaps it is a genetic predisposition. Our DNA coded from the moment of conception to write out the entire way our life will play out. Of course some things will be left to chance; fate better yet. But I can tell you from personal experience, some people are just born bad.

I always did my best, despite having the genetic odds stacked against me. Saying I didn’t win the parental lottery would have been one of the understatements of the century. Yet, I was always able to skate by in life. Trying not to become a statistic. Little did I know other people would take my choices away from me.

I guess most of my problems started when I got married. I was such a naïve twenty year old. I thought the world was all sunshine and roses. He was my world, my reason for living. That was until he lost interest in me. A high risk pregnancy, bed rest, sex restrictions, and a colicky baby will kill intimacy for anyone. Breastfeeding isn’t sexy. Neither are the stretch marks Liam left me with. I didn’t care, and I still don’t. But he did, and that is why I caught him in bed with my eighteen year old babysitter when my son was barely three.

I know, my life is starting to sound like a soap opera. I wish these were the darkest days. Back then, I thought they were. I thought going through a divorce with a four year old son was the end of the world. Ha. I wish I would have known what my future would hold. What damage could be done at the hands of a stranger I thought I knew.

Does anyone truly ever know another person? My answer to that question would be no. Even the most open and honest people have dark secrets. Shit they would never reveal to anyone. You know you have those type of secrets, we all do. Hell, I do. I typically would never tell anyone. Except since the world knows most of them now, it is my turn to tell my own story.

The true story of Aurora Alexander. The real dangers of picking up strange men on the internet under the guise of dating, and new beginnings. It all began as a game. A way to spread my wings, and learn the dating game after being out of it for a decade. It ended in a violent attempt on my life. I am a fighter. I have lived to tell my story. No one can silence me. Not even him.

When Wyatt and Michelle leave for Chicago to attend the wedding of an old friend of Michelle’s, and Wyatt has no idea how close his beloved Domina is to the edge. Michelle has been trying to ignore her own issues, focused on helping Wyatt with his PTSD, but the past refuses to stay buried and she soon finds herself spiraling out of control. More determined than ever to protect Wyatt from herself, Michelle tries to pretend everything is perfect with devastating results.

Wyatt can see that Michelle is losing it, but he doesn’t know how to help her when she refuses to admit there’s a problem. No longer able to deal with the pressure of pretending to be perfect, Michelle self-destructs. Wyatt is now faced with a bitter choice – leave the woman who owns his heart or start a long and arduous journey to rescue the other half of his soul from her own personal Hell.

Penance is the conclusion of Michelle and Wyatt’s tale of hope, loss, healing, and most of all forgiveness and unconditional love.

Disclaimer … This is the second book in a two book series. It is HIGHLY recommended that you read ‘Still’ before you read ‘Penance’ as this is basically one giant book split into two.



Penance AuthorAnn is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age she’s been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby

Hey everyone, today is a special day here at Zany PNR Addict. What’s happening you may ask? Well my lovelies we had the opportunity to sit down with Heather Long and pick her brain. This is super exciting because following our game of 20 questions I will be sharing my review of her book Some Like it Royal. The first in her Going Royal Series.


Let give a warm welcome to Heather and see wants hidden …

• What sound or noise tends to drive you nuts?

One Direction. No, I’m not kidding. Eight hours in the car with the Mini, she played it nonstop. I was ready to throw myself out the window.

• What is your least favorite word?

No. Come on, isn’t it everyone’s?

• What profession other than being an author would you like to attempt?

Hum. I have studied law, journalism, and psychology (and not in that order) so probably psychologist.

• What profession would you not want to be caught doing?

Professions don’t bother me, though I figure if someone made me an accountant that would be bad. NUMBERS.

• What city could you get lost in for hours to explore?

All of them. Oh, you mean like lost, lost? Um … all of them.

• What are you reading right now or what books have you had your eye on that you haven’t had time to read?

Reading Sarah MacLean at the moment, and counting it down to the next Patricia Briggs and Nalini Singh.

• What book/s do you urge readers to read?

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh. I will not shut the hell up about it.

• What item must you have with you at all times?

My brain. Trust me, the days I’ve been without it have SUCKED.

• Name one thing about yourself that would surprise most people?

O.o if I tell you then it’s not a SURPRISE!

• What is something you like to collect?

Dust. I mean I must, I have a crapton of it.

• What is the most unique or ugliest item you own and why do you keep it?

I’m really not supposed to say bad things about people.

• If you have to pick one romantic scene or couple to recommend to a first time reader of your books, which or who would it be and why?

The first kiss scene in Some Like it Royal. That scene cracks me up EVERY single time I read it. I think I outdid myself. I agree … my absolute favorite moment!

• Which book of your series has been your most favorite to write and which has been your most frustrating?

They are all my favorites when I write them. Most frustrating? Wanted Alive or Fevered. I swore it was going to be a novella. 100,000 words later, I guess not.

• In your opinion, what makes your books different from others out there?

The characters. These are people I could know or you could. I try to make them real and keep them grounded in what makes us quirky and crazy.

• What are some (if any) of the quirks or habits you find yourself doing when you are writing?

Not sleeping.

• Boxers, briefs or commando?

Oh! I’ll take one man in each please!

• Tattoos or piercings?


• Soft, sensual make out session or throw you up against the wall?

Let me research this to give you the best answer …

• Rough and ready cowboy or billionaire in a sharp suit?

Yes I guess that means she will take one of each. LoL!

• Vampire or Werewolf?

Yes Again, one of each. I mean I would too! LoL!


Well my lovelies I hope you enjoyed yourselves in getting to know Heather a litter better. Now on with the review!

Book Summary (courtesy of GoodReads)

It’s The Role of a Lifetime …

Living out of a car and waiting tables to make ends meet is hardly the stuff of fairy tales. So when a gorgeous man approaches Alyx Dagmar with a wild story about her royal lineage and an even wilder proposition, the aspiring actress is sure he’s got the wrong woman.

Self-made billionaire Daniel Voldakov needs connections before he can expand his software business into Europe. A blue-blooded fiancée would open all the right doors — and Daniel’s certain he can tempt the pretty but penniless Princess Alyxandretta to accept the part she was born to play.

Alyx can’t resist Daniel’s offer, and throws herself into the role. But as the paparazzi fall in love with their “storybook romance,” Alyx finds herself drawn to Daniel in ways she’d never imagined. Are his returned affections true, or all just part of the plan? He’ll do anything it takes to prove his love, and to make her see that the only happily ever after he wants is with her … the real her.

My Review
This book in 8 words of less …

Where to start? To say I love this story is an understatement of epic portions because I haven’t enjoyed a Contemporary Romance of this magnitude in a very long time. Some Like It Royal is a modern day fairy tale come to life in the most unexpected way. The evolution of the main characters in this story are both true to form as it is refreshing. Though we readers know Daniel and Alyx have a shared attraction towards each other the subtly of how Ms. Long approaches these feelings is written naturally with the right amount of sizzle and banter. The witticisms exchanged between Daniel and Alyx are some of the cleverest and inventive lines I’ve read in a long time. One of the most memorable scenes for me and perhaps one among my many favorites is the awkward and clumsy first kiss between Daniel and Alyx. So much fun and good laughs were shared during this chapter.

For your viewing pleasure I was lucky enough to find a clip featuring awkward kisses and the first one is a perfect example of what can be visualized when reading this scene. But wait after the awkwardness is over we get to the good stuff. Kisses like this …

first kiss

Now I can’t leave without mentioning the incredible cast of misfits that compliment Daniel and Alyx’s throughout their journey. Let’s see we have … one character that seems to always have the greatest one liners that makes you laugh so hard you end up holding your diaphragm and wiping tears from your eyes. Another that has you biting your nails because you aren’t sure whether their plans are nefarious or not when it comes to Daniel and Alyx. Then there is the best love-to-hate character that has you wanting to choke slam him minute but ultimately after some time you clandestinely love and finally there is the one character that from the minute you know about him you instantaneously want to know more.

Final Thoughts

This is the first book I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading by Ms. Long and I absolutely adored it! She has created such an amazing world that I never wanted it to end. I can easily see myself reading Some Like it Royal again and again until Ms. Long creates the next installment. May those stories be just as fun and delicious as Daniel and Alyx’s.

Chapter One
Kitchen Promises, Riverside Novel #3

Drake walked in wrapped in only a towel. The toast I was bringing to my mouth suddenly dropped from my fingers as my eyes roamed over his perfectly toned body. My eyes followed down to his perfect V that went just below the towel.

“Breakfast in bed and a show? I’m one lucky gal,” I teased, leaning back against the headboard enjoying the view.
“Someone sounds like they are feeling better.” He smiled.
“Well, I for sure am now.”

“Really? Well, perhaps I should take advantage of that.” He grinned, slowly unwrapping the towel from around his waist. I smirked as I watched him tease me, putting on a show as he finally released the towel. I watched it fall to the ground. I let my eyes wander up and down his body—appreciating every single chiseled curve of muscle.

“It’s not nice to tease,” I reminded him. “You better put out or get out.”

“Oh, I love it when you talk dirty,” he quipped, laughing. “I can’t decide if I love or hate your pregnancy hormones.” He grinned. It was true — I had a love/hate relationship with them as well. On top of always wanting to sleep and eat, I also wanted sex—all the time. Not that Drake minded, but some days, I was all over the place. I felt like I had no control over them. They were beginning to drive me mad.

“Can you be a little late for work today?” I asked, placing the tray of food on the bedside table. I didn’t take my eyes off him as I watched him walk over to the bed. “I’d hate for you to get into trouble.” I grinned.

“I could probably weasel my way out of it with the boss.”
“You are the boss.”

“I know.” And with that, he made his way on top of me, brushing the covers off. “I think I can spare a few minutes … ” He pressed his lips across my jaw, slowly moving to my neck. He bit it gently, making a moan escape my mouth at his touch and eagerness. “… for you.”

His hands slid up my sides, taking my shirt up with them. I arched my neck to the side, giving him better access as the sensations riveted through me.

I reached down, pressing him harder into me. I felt his hardness against me, making me desperate and needy for him.

The hormones made my body respond to him so much more—not that I didn’t before—but it was magnified. It was intensified, and I felt desperate to have him.

“Screw the foreplay. I need to have you right now,” I demanded, pushing his body harder against mine.

“Such a romantic, aren’t you?” I could feel him smiling against my neck as he continued softly kissing.

“I mean it. I’m going to explode,” I breathed out rapidly. Just his touch could undo me completely.

“Alright, hold on, baby.” He lowered his body and in one swift motion, slid my panties down. I wasn’t looking for romance right now. I needed him just as much as I needed to breathe.
I threw my shirt over my head and unclasped my bra. It was still weird seeing my body naked with the way it was changing so fast, but it was also a constant reminder of the love Drake and I shared.

Instead of pressing into me like I wanted him to, he tenderly laid kisses over my stomach and in between my breasts. He was torturing me. He knew it, too. I was practically grinding against him, yet he refused to give in.

“Baby, please,” I moaned out desperately.
“I can’t help it. You are just so beautiful. You have the most beautiful pregnant glow.” He continued to lay kisses around my bump, slowly, taking his time.

“That’s great,” I huffed, cupping his face up to look at me. “I’m going to handcuff you to this bed and straddle you if you don’t — ”

He forced two fingers inside me before I could finish what I was saying. I moaned loudly at the surprise sensation, arching my hips up to greet his fingers.

“You’re feisty when you’re desperate.” He laughed as he worked his fingers in and out of me, hitting the perfect spot over and over.

I ignored him and grabbed the bedrail behind me, arching my body up to him as I needed and wanted to feel him inside me.

“How badly do you need it, baby?” Drake whispered with a hint of humor in his voice.

“You know how badly,” I snapped, unable to open my eyes. Still, I could hear the amusement in his tone. He enjoyed torturing me and secretly loved it.

“Say it,” he demanded, pressing harder into me, twisting his wrist, and practically taking all the air out of my lungs. “Say what you need, baby.”

“I need you! I need you inside, right now. God, I swear, I’ll do anything,” I pleaded, willing to do just about anything to get what I wanted from him.

“Anything for my sweet girl,” he hummed, lowering his lips to where his fingers were. He sucked hard, leaving no time for me to retaliate. My back arched, enjoying the sensations that released inside of me. My body shivered with pleasure, unable to control my own breathing as I moaned out.

He lifted his head and covered my body with his. I watched as he licked his fingers, moaning out pleasurable sounds.

“Keep your hands up,” he ordered. I continued hanging onto the bedrail, tightening my grip as he finally pushed himself into me. The feeling was overwhelming as I took him all in, finally feeling full and satisfied.

He leaned down and kissed me gently as he rocked his hips into me. His breathing quickened as the air blew over my lips. His mouth wandered to my ear, blowing and licking over my lobe, making it harder to leave my hands up. I wanted to dig my nails into him and drive him insane as much as he was doing to me. He lowered his hand and cupped my breast, squeezing gently. I screamed out his name, pushing my breast into his hand urgently, desperately needing the release.

He lowered his face and took it into his mouth, swirling his tongue around my peaked nipple. He grabbed one leg and placed it on top of his shoulder, allowing him to get deeper inside me. That was enough to set me off. I screamed out, not holding back as I greeted his hips with mine, soaking up every pleasurable second.
It wasn’t long before Drake did the same, milking his own release as he grinded into me. He lay on top of me as we both tried to get ahold of our breathing, panting into each other.

“Well, if this wasn’t the best morning I’ve ever had — breakfast in bed and sex all before my shower.” I grinned. My legs felt like jelly as all my muscles were stretched and aching.

“Glad to be of service.” His voice was filled with amusement. I’ve been like this for the past few months—needing sex on demand. I felt bad, as if I were using him, but I figured it wasn’t much different from before I got pregnant.

“Must be horrible for you, always needing to fulfill my needs, and all.” I stroked his back with my fingertips as he continued lying on top of me.

“It’s not always easy being the boss. Sometimes I have to do the dirty work.” I could feel his smile against my chest as we bantered.

“Oh, you poor thing. I almost feel sorry for you.” I rolled my eyes.

He kissed me lightly on the lips before rolling off the bed. I just watched as he walked to the bathroom. I listened as the shower started and steam began filling the room.

“Come on, let’s shower together.” He smiled, holding his hand out for me.
“Definitely the best morning ever.” I grinned, taking his hand in mind as I followed him in.
And it was the best shower ever.
