About 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Seven

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Shayla Black, Laura Kaye, Lara Adrian, Heather Graham, Skye Jordan, and CD Reiss.

Six Dark Tales. Six Sensual Stories. Six Page Turners.

Pure Wicked by Shayla Black
During his decade as an international pop star, Jesse McCall has lived every day in the fast lane. When tragedy strikes, he sheds his identity and walks away, searching for peace. Instead, he finds Bristol Reese, a no-nonsense beauty scraping to keep her business. He’s intent on seducing her, but she’s not interested in a player. How will he convince her that he’s a changed man who wants nothing more than to make her his forever?

Hard As Steel by Laura Kaye
After identifying her employer’s dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn’t make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him–and always has.

Stroke of Midnight by Lara Adrian
Born to a noble Breed lineage steeped in exotic ritual and familial duty, vampire warrior Jehan walked away from the luxurious trappings of his upbringing in Morocco to join the Order’s command center in Rome. But when a generations-old obligation calls Jehan home, the reluctant desert prince finds himself thrust into an unwanted handfasting with Seraphina, an unwilling beauty who’s as determined as he is to resist the antiquated pact between their families.

All Hallows Eve by Heather Graham
Salem was a place near and dear to Jenna Duffy and Samuel Hall — it was where they’d met on a strange and sinister case. They never dreamed that they’d be called back. That history could repeat itself in a most macabre and terrifying fashion. But, then again, it was Salem at Halloween. Seasoned Krewe members, they still find themselves facing the unspeakable horrors in a desperate race to save each other-and perhaps even their very souls.

Rendezvous by Skye Jordan
Keaton Holt knows all about the badass throwdown—on the movie set and in the bedroom. As the only sixth-degree black belt stuntman for Renegades, he’s made a career of translating those fighting skills to the big screen. He’s sown his oats and is ready for hometown and apple pie. When he gets a second chance with the stunning personal assistant Brooke, he knows she’s exactly what he needs—and he’s ready to use all his best moves to keep her this time.

Secret Sins by CD Reiss
She’s too young. Too smart. Too rich. She’s a virgin and knee-deep in rock-and-roll gods.
But life as she knows it is about to end. She’s going to get ripped apart, and the only thing she can do to keep it together is to keep her secrets.
She has no idea how many secrets are being kept from her, and when they come to light, her life will blow up all over again. Can she take it?
She’s Margie Drazen. She can take anything.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

Review

The 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Seven offers a diverse set of novellas sure to please all romance and mystery readers, and even if readers aren’t a lover of paranormal, the two paranormal novellas included in the bundle just might change their mind. There’s steam, suspense, drama, and passion in this group of stories that will surely get readers hooked and because it’s such an eclectic set, hopefully, it will spurn readers to new genres and new authors, which seems to be what these bundles are all about!

Pure Wicked by Shayla Black

Jesse McCall and Bristol Reese, international superstar and small town girl, two people who are looking for a change, a way to move forward and find something meaningful – a way out of the mess that is their lives due to bad decisions and other people’s idiocy. They may come from two different worlds, but they’re the balm to allow each other’s current situations to change, and as long as they can both hold on and endure the ride – every wickedly sexy and confusing part of it – they may just have found the meaningful life they’ve needed.

Pure Wicked is a quick read that illustrates how life can change for the better unexpectantly. Bristol and Jesse’s relationship moves quickly from one steamy night into a whole lot more, and while I did feel like I had whiplash with how fast everything progressed and then felt a bit teased and unfulfilled at the end, the story perfectly fits the concept and reasons behind the storytelling of the 1001 Dark Nights series, leaving readers and listeners wanting more at the end.

Hard As Steel by Laura Kaye

I CANNOT get enough of Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink Men! All of them are alpha males to their core, but there is also a softer side of them…maybe even a tormented side due to circumstances beyond their control, and Ike Young, Kaye’s newest Hard Ink man seems to be weighed down with a past that won’t release him from moving on and enjoying more than living half a life. But if there’s one thing that Kaye has proven to her readers, it’s that her heroines are more than willing to battle their men’s demons and prove to them that they are more than worth the love and devotion these women want to bestow upon them.

Ike is no stranger to guilt and a past that he prefers to remain hidden, but he portrays himself as the badass motorcycle brother and tattooist and nothing more because he refuses to allow another woman into his life, especially one with as many problems as Jessica seems to have after a one night stand turns into someone who wants her dead. But Ike and Jess’s attraction to one another continues to sizzle as Ike secures and protects her from harm, and when two people with so much sexual chemistry are confined to a secluded cabin for an unforeseen amount of time, the steel wall Ike has around his heart/body is no match for his feelings for Jessica. But even though Ike wants her, she’s going to have to fight tooth and nail to get him to realize that he can have her…that he deserves her, which seems to be a much harder battle than the one the Hard Ink Men are fighting against their hidden enemy.

I’m sad to see my Hard Ink Men series ending, but the way Laura Kaye crosses over to her new Raven Riders series with Ike and Jess’ book proves that there are more alpha males and kick ass heroines in my future and perhaps even some visits of old friends.

Stroke of Midnight by Lara Adrian

I haven’t had much exposure to Lara Adrian’s paranormal worlds, but my introduction to her Midnight Breed series has me moving her books up on my TBR pile. The entire concept of the Breed Warriors and their Breedmates is an intriguing one and even though I’m late to the game in understanding how the ancient rules and procedures work, it was clear that familial obligation as well secure blood bonds are of the upmost importance in Adrian’s world.

Jehan and Seaphina may not know one another and may have greatly misjudged each other throughout their initial meeting, but it becomes clear, early on in their handfast, that there’s an attraction between them they can only fight for so long before giving into temptation and perhaps securing a blood bond becomes the only thing that matters to them. Their connection moves beyond a duty to their family and becomes one based off of reciprocated feelings that they tried like hell to deny but can no longer.

The Breed world is a highly sensual and action-packed one, and it will pull readers in due to its multi-faceted characters and a plot line that continues to alter based on the challenges that are faced and the complicated relationships of the hero and heroine. I adore series that are long standing because it illustrates the writing prowess of the author and her ability to maintain a world over the duration of the series, keeping it fresh and appealing to its readers, and I wholeheartedly believe that Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed is one such series.

All Hallows Eve by Heather Graham

At first, the murder mystery story seemed out of place for this collection of novellas because while there’s an undertone of a love story due to Jenna Duffy and Samuel Hall’s long-standing relationship, All Hallows Eve is not a love story; it’s a paranormal whodunit and readers become super sleuths right along with the main characters as they work to solve the case before more people are murdered. But the more I thought about its place in the 1001 Nights Bundle, the more I understood the novella for what it was – a step outside the ordinary and an intriguing story set apart from the others to provide readers with a short introduction into a widely enjoyed series, the Krewe Hunters series and to allow readers the opportunity to participate into the paranormal investigation.

Rendezvous by Skye Jordan

All it took was one kiss to prove to Keaton and Brooke that there was something special between them…something worth exploring. But when Brooke’s family needed her, she left Keaton and any chance they had of starting a relationship, which sent Keaton back to his one night stands and “them crazy bitches” who only wanted a piece of what Keaton could give them both in and outside the bedroom.

One year later and Keaton’s finally done wanting anything to do with the trouble making bimbos he used to bring to his bed, and as luck would have it, he just happens to reconnect with the “one that got away;” now, all he needs is to figure out how to change their current situations so that they can explore the chemistry that sizzles between them and finally take a chance on something permanent instead of the temporary rendezvous he’s only ever been willing to have.

Keaton and Brooke’s story is a quick and dirty read that illustrates just how filthy a good girl can be when she finds the right sexual partner. Even though Brooke doesn’t know it yet, she is definitely Keaton’s girl…his perfect match, and he refuses to allow a bitchy diva or any other obstacles to prevent another Renegade from getting his forever girl.

Skye Jordan’s Renegades series is full of sweet and steamy contemporary romance stories with sinfully hot alpha males and sassy women who show their men exactly what they’ve been missing by living a life without love and commitment.

I absolutely loved Keaton and his determination to make Brooke his. He builds on each rendezvous they have and proves to her just how much he wants to make a relationship work with her despite his “temporary” lifestyle. There are some miscommunications and there are times Keaton and Brooke definitely don’t make being together easy, but there’s a connection between them that refuses to be broken, so with a little work and a few more rendezvous, perhaps this temporary relationship can become permanent, adding another happy couple to the Renegade family.

skye-jordan-headshotAbout Skye Jordan

Skye’s New York Times bestselling novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because Skye is ultimately a romantic at heart and a happily ever after kinda gal. Skye also writes romantic suspense as Joan Swan, weaving fast paced novels of passion, danger and suspense.

Skye is a California native recently transplanted to the East Coast and living in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington DC with her husband of 25 years. She has two grown daughters in college in Colorado and Oregon. In her free time she’s always taking classes and attending seminars. She’s currently loving mosaics, forensic sculpting, pastry and cooking classes and knitting.

cd-reiss-headshotAbout CD Reiss

C.D. Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
