Compromised


From a dazzling new voice in historical fiction comes a pair of mismatched lovers who find themselves caught in a most scandalous position.



Miss Gail Alton is not having a good day. Or a good year. First, her new stepmother strong-arms her into attending the Season as a foil to her beautiful sister Evangeline. Then, while riding her mare in the park, she gets toppled by a stuffy, self-important, too-handsome-by-half "gentleman" who has the audacity to blame her for their fall into the chilly lake! Little does she know that the very same man will soon be found in a compromising position with Gail's sister.



Forced into asking for Evangeline's hand in marriage, Maximillian, Viscount Fontaine, can't take his mind off the irksome girl who threw him from his horse and who can match wits with him at every turn. He's determined to follow through with his best intentions, yet he can't deny that every encounter with Gail makes him want to cast propriety aside-and whisk away the sister of his soon-to-be bride.(

Gideon thinks his life is over and that he is mad and out of his mind but soon he finds out that his little determined wife is not giving up as she gradually co-worse's  him out of his dark shadows and finds that his one true love will cure him after all.

My Thoughts.....



I enjoyed yet another book by Gerry. Her books are great. They are nice easy reading and you can't help but get caught up in Glory's escapades. This time she finds sometime willing to help her lose weight but he happens to be her lovers greatest enemy. She want's more then once to be thin and is doing what ever in her power to do taking diet supplements and exercising vigorously, drinking blood from a mortal. But she is having side effects from the supplements and crazy dreams that leaves her sleep walking and almost into the sun a few times if not for her body guards. If she keeps this up it just might kill her. But some good side effects have come from this she is awake during the day more and more each day and has seen the sun come up after centuries of going without.As always there are always problems along the way people trying to kill you, your fake lover wanting to be your lover in truth, a jealous Scotsman in your bed and your attraction to you bodyguard Rafe who is a shifter (dog) at the moment but is totally handsome when he is a man. What more could a a vampire ask for lol.

Powerfully sensual and potently erotic, the Chanku are an exotic race of shape shifters. Their intent is never to harm, only to delight in one another's sexual passion and pleasure. But someone or something is out to hurt them, and after attacks against all three packs across the country, all targeted at women and children, Anton Cheval calls the Chanku home to find out who is orchestrating these assaults - and to stop them.But as the Chanku come together to defend themselves, something even more unexpected happens. The combined energy of so many libidinous shape shifters creates an orgy of uncontrollable desire. Now Anton wonders if the Chanku's powers of seduction have merely increased in the presence of so many of their kind, or whether they have discovered an important and unexpected legacy from their mystical and mysterious past..

My Thoughts...

Enjoyed the story .It was face paced read it in a few hours. I like how all the clan members joined together in a crisis how the love one another and protect each other. Someone was after the new babies in this one and they all rallied to take out they hunters hunting them. I will say though reading this book I was a little lost with new characters in this book I don't know where they came from and how they met. It is important to read the anthologies about this series this way you kept up with the characters and there mates.( Amoung with series) (other books list on my blog on the way the books were written and should be read ) Both clans pulled together to save the children and to save there leader Anton. A few twists and turns along the way and to Adam to finding some newly discovered powers that will definately come in handy in this story. Onto the next one enjoy all !
