The Ark Hotel: Before the Dawn by JP Archer and Lani Rhea: Angie Perkins was escaping an abusive relationship when she ended up in Veradale, Washington. The Ark Hotel and its Wheel of Pleasure had been a favorite topic of Buddy, her ex-boyfriend, and his idea of how the wheel worked had featured greatly in her decision to leave. Meeting Lizzy and Noah helped her to feel safe and secure with her new life, and Noah was quickly becoming very important to her. However, Noah had secrets of his own he was keeping from Angie. Can they overcome the traumas of the past and develop a relationship?
Demon Protection Plan by Elizabeth J. Kolodziej: Kasidy was half demon, a quality she chose to keep to herself as much as possible. Taken hostage by a crazed gunman in front of uniformed officers forced her to use her powers to free herself and capture the gunman, leading the officers to wonder exactly what she had done. Questioning at the police station only landed her in a witness protection program, with one of the officers guarding her at a deserted cabin, since she would have to testify at trial. The longer she spent with the officer – Decland – the more attracted to him she became. Is there any hope for a happy relationship between a by-the-book police officer and a lonely half-demon woman?
These three romance stories were well-written, with erotic overtones, and were interesting and captured my interest. My favorite was Demon Protection Plan…I appreciated Kasidy’s humor and could relate to her feeling of isolation. She was a strong, tough woman who took no nonsense, and I like those qualities in a main character. The three stories all had HEA in common, but not always in the expected fashion. Still, it was good to see that everything worked out for the leading ladies.
