High Commander Lesto Arseni is the most feared man in the Harken Empire. None but the High King dares risk his wrath—and a pirate who once punched him in the middle of the imperial pavilion. A pirate who later snuck away with Lesto to an empty room, touched him in ways far more memorable. And then immediately bolted like a man who’d gotten what he wanted.

Shemal just wants to live a normal life, leave his pirating days behind him and prove that he’s respectable now. The last thing he needs is the two idiots who show up wanting his help with the noble they’ve kidnapped—the very man Shemal had been hoping to prove himself to, the man he hasn’t forgotten since Shemal punched him a year and a half ago.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14Michele_s MeanderingsTAG

Forsaken Hunger

Forsaken beyond redemption and forced into servitude for his sins, only death can be his salvation.

As payment for his crimes, Saden was disowned by his Vampyre race and made a Drakon—a slave trained to become a soulless killer and forced by his master to apprehend other demon criminals. He was an assassin with no future except the promise of death at the end of his sentence to relieve his suffering. His life was forfeit, and had been since the day he was betrayed by the one man he’d trusted with his life—his uncle, Gabriel.

The only respite in the madness of his world lay in the heart of a warrior he’d sworn to protect. A woman who wasn’t even aware of his existence.

Daneya had learned early in life that the only one she could depend on was herself. Circumstance had made her hard and unyielding, with only the … [Read More ...]

Training Complex (Training Season #2) by Leta Blake


This is one of those books that you want to beat people over the head until they read it. Yes, I enjoyed it that much. In the beginning, we meet Tover – he’s the Navigator who is basically someone who can move objects and – even more excitingly – people with his mind. He’s only one of forty two people in the universe who can do such a thing, so obviously he’s pampered, worshipped, rich, a bit full of himself – but not overly so that you can’t stand the guy. Quite the opposite – I loved Tover from the start. The story is told from his POV, so you really get to know him.

 

Another thing you get to experience through his eyes is how crushed he is when the man he loves, Cruz, betrays him by selling him to pirates. I wanted to kill Cruz – I’m … [Read More ...]
