Goodreads Blurb:
Bound by passion, she was powerless to resist.

One dark evening in London, photographer Serena Folkes is indulging her impulsive side with a night-time shoot. But someone is watching her – mysterious entrepreneur Gustav Levi. Serena doesn’t know it yet, but this handsome stranger will change her life forever…

Serena is fascinated by Gustav, the enigmatic owner of the Levi Gallery, and she soon feels an irresistible pull of attraction. The interest is mutual, and Gustav promises to launch Serena’s photographic career at his gallery, but only if Serena agrees to become his exclusive companion.

To mark their agreement, Gustav gives Serena a bracelet to wear at all times. Attached to it is a silver chain of which he is the keeper. With the chain Gustav controls Serena physically and symbolically – a sign that she is under his power.

As their passionate relationship intensifies, Gustav’s hold on the silver chain grows stronger. But will Gustav’s dark past tear them apart?

A seductive and beautifully written novel for erotic romance fans. The Silver Chain is the first in the sexy, passionate and addictive Unbreakable Trilogy by Primula Bond.




My Review:
Excellent start to a new series! A sensual roller coaster ride that leaves you wanting much more. Any fans of the genre will thoroughly enjoy The Silver Chain and the story behind it.

Serena is starting life anew. Looking to live her dream, make it a reality. Her past haunts her daily. But she’s determined to make a future for herself. When an offer is proposed to her. It seems a bit too good to be true. The question is, is it?


Gustav is a wealthy man that has shut down a large part of himself for about 5 years. Now that he’s met Serena, he finds that a part of him desires to be put to use once more. Can he do it without being scorned once again?

All in all a great read. I look forward to where the author will take us with the next in the series.

Goodreads Blurb:

Playing With Fire! 

Caragh Ó Brannon defended herself bravely when the enemy landed—only, now she finds herself alone with one very angry Viking…

Styr Hardrata sailed to Ireland intending to trade, never expecting to find himself held captive in chains by a beautiful Irish maiden.

The fiercely handsome warrior both terrifies and allures Caragh, but he is forbidden territory. He is the enemy…and he is married. Yet Styr harbors a secret that just might set them both free…

Forbidden Vikings

Resist them if you can!
                

My Review:
A very good first experience for me. What do I mean by first experience you are?.. I will tell you. It’s my first time reading from this author and I say she now has a new fan! Great characters, settings, and a different (to me) story line right along with some excellent writing. I feel any fans of the genre, or just Viking lovers in general will love To Sin with a Viking :)

Caragh is one tough cookie! I have to say. I was impressed with her right from the start. She’s with her people, all of them poor and hungry. Yet she always thinks of herself last. That says a lot about a person.

Styr is the main Viking in this story. Traveling with his wife and people to find new home and make a new start. He also hopes the change will help save his marriage. Styr is a man of honor and far from a quitter. He faces temptation and holds true, for the most part. I would not mind having a Viking like him in my next Viking dream :)


My only complaint is it ended around when all of the hot and sexy came along. I was hoping for a bit…more. But it was otherwise satisfying and a plan to look into more of this authors work.

Goodreads Blurb:

Beautiful and talented Catherine Kelly is starting over as a food photographer in Chicago. With her painful past buried over 2000 miles away, she’s focused on her career and is hungry for little else. Until she meets a wealthy bachelor with arresting blue-grey eyes filled with enough tragedy to match her own. William Lambourne is a gourmand who takes great pleasure in food and in women. He’s rich, powerful, and gorgeous -- and as talented in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom. From the moment they meet, William is determined to discover the perfect recipe to unlock Cat’s resolve, awaken her senses, and make her his own. He urges Catherine to step out from behind her camera and fully taste all that life has to offer, stirring an appetite in her she never knew she possessed - and it’s one only he can satisfy. As Catherine begins to fall for the stormy-eyed billionaire, she knows she must reveal her own dark secrets. But first, William must win Cat’s heart to ensure their pasts don’t undo them.

Book 1 in The Epicurean series, A Taste of You will leave you ravenous for more of Cat and William’s story!


My Review:


A deeply touching sensual erotic romance that is sure to both keep you on your toes and cause them to curl. Any erotic romance reader out there will find themselves drawn into the pages of this story like a moth to a flame.
Catherine is a widow who has yet to really move on in life and allow herself to really feel…anything. That’s until the day she (awkwardly) meets William. She finds herself torn with want and guilt and is unsure how to deal with it at all. But she cannot resist his alpha ways, charm and good looks.

William has his own story. It’s very different from Catherine’s, yet alike in some ways. He’s a very successful, handsome and wealthy man that has odd ways about him. He tends to constantly run hot and cold and has some secrets he keeps guarded. I honestly had a love/hate relationship with him throughout the story that (for those curious) ended with me loving him. Many of his ways come to either a complete halt or are changed drastically the day he sets his eyes on Catherine.

There was a bit of a roller coaster ride for a time, but a very fun one. I look forward to reading more from Sorcha Grace and am excited to see where she plans to go with the next in the series.
