Excerpt  from The Hunted by C.J. Hart


– Seb –


The night has begun to creep in. Spooky shadows and hooting owls. A chill shimmers up my spine. Humans have long locked themselves away in their houses. The rez isn’t a place you want to be out in after dark.

Good thing I’m not human.

I sprint into the forest, deep enough so no one can see me strip. When I reach the third fallen log, I stop. Kicking off my shoes, I crumple my shirt and jeans, stuffing them into the backpack and tugging the zipper closed. I cram it in a log.

The prickling of my skin intensifies as my hunger for flesh and blood grows, twisting and churning my stomach. Tugging at my muscles. I leap into the air. Hands and feet turn to paws, fingers and toes to claws. Fur spreads over my whole body, gray with circles of black on my back.

I raise my muzzle into the air and suck in a deep breath. Rust, salt, and sinew fill my nostrils. East. The lake. I pad towards it, silent and starving. Then it hits me. Like a brick wall shooting up, keeping me in my place. Staggering back as the scent of roses and coffee floods my airways, I shake my head to rid myself of the stench. Where’s it coming from? I must find out. I need to. It’s too mouthwatering to resist. I spin, sampling the air around me. West. I charge through the forest, paws crashing against leaves and bracken. I’m making too much noise. I’ve forgotten to care. Lost all rational thoughts.

I pass the invisible border dividing Aeston and Taylor.

A house appears at the edge of the trees, its exterior brown and gray. A blonde girl sits on the porch, candlelight sparking across her face. I freeze, claws digging into soil. She’s reading. The light breeze brings her scent to me. Coffee and roses. Such a sweet, decadent aroma. My mouth waters. She can’t be more than seventeen. I creep as close as I dare, curious. Her hazel eyes dart across the page. What’s she reading?

She doesn’t see me. I slink closer, leaning out of the trees.

A male voice cuts through the air. “Dinner’s ready.”

Her head snaps up. “Coming, Dad!” She marks her page, snuffs the candle flame, and then disappears inside.

I wait. Minutes or hours pass. A light in an upstairs room illuminates. The curtains close. Moments later, the curtains open and the light is extinguished.


I must see more. 


This is a novel that is for all ages! It contains slight romance and lots of action and suspense in my opinion.  One thing I loved the most was the whole Native American believes and how the author incorporates it into her novel. It follows an alpha who starts to fall for a girl that ends up in danger. What will he go through to save not just her but his pack? The author gave us plenty of description to know what was going on in the story and also we were able to distinguish the various characters. Ted, even though he is alpha has found put that not everything is as easy and still must hide things. He is strong yet when it comes to the pack there are still weaknesses he must overcome especially if hes going to find a way to save Cassie.  Cassie is kind and has a heart of gold. Unfortunately she is stuck in the middle of a war. Who will win is the question? The author had a well balance of keeping the momentous going to keep the readers active with the story.  Even though this is not one of my main genres I read I do have to say I enjoyed it and recommend it to everyone that reads paranormal!

Kira’s Warriors by Elle Boon

Kiras Warriors BannerKira's Warriors


Kira lived the life of a pampered princess of a wealthy Japanese man who mourned the loss of his son, and missing wife. She’d been given everything a girl could want, but nobody was allowed close enough to love or hurt her. All that changed when her life was threatened and he hired the Ravens as her security.


Thane and Garrick never expected to find their Fated, let alone that she’d be touched by a god. The legend of the Kitsune was steeped in mystery, but they’d need all the help they could get to save their Fated from the god who possessed her brother. They’d need to travel into the deepest levels of hell, and fight the Shinigami to save her and her brother.


Kira realizes Thane and Garrick would give up their own lives to give her the family she’d never had. She would fight to hold onto the best things she could ever ask for, her warriors.

She turned her face up to his, love emanating on her glowing features. “I can see we will need to compromise then. Unless you plan to tie me up each time you leave.”


Possessiveness shot straight to Thane’s groin at her whispered words. “Oh, I think we could practice tying you up, only we will be with you when you are all tied up and at our mercy.”


“I like how you think, Thane.” Garrick didn’t look away from a kneeling Kira.


Their Fated took each of their hands and placed one on each of her breasts. The erect little nub stabbed into Thane’s palm. He let her control how much pressure he used, knowing she was doing the same with Garrick’s hand. He itched to use his fingers to twist her nipple into an even harder point, but he wanted to see what she did next. She brought first Garrick’s hand up to her mouth, sucking his index finger in between her lips. His best friend’s groan turned to a moan, and then it was his turn for the same treatment. By the time she brought their wet fingers back to her breasts, her shirt was gone. Kira had used her new abilities to not only make her clothes disappear, but Thane was shocked to see he and Garrick were also naked.


She trailed their wet fingers around her nipples, her eyes rolling backward as Thane plucked at the one she’d given him access to. A soft cry escaped her lips when Garrick did the same on the other side.


Thane leaned forward, needing to taste her lips. He strummed his thumb over her nipple one more time, inching down the length of her body with his palm. Little shivers of need arced from her to both him and Garrick. He stroked her lower stomach, watching her eyes dilate, and her muscles quivered beneath his fingers. Tracing an erotic pattern down her mons, he heard her breath catch. Thane inched his hand toward her pussy, stroking down her thigh and back up before delving between the cleft, inserting one finger. “Damn, you’re so fucking wet.” He circled her clit, teasing softly. His head dipped toward her breasts, pausing when Garrick leaned forward and claimed her kiss-swollen lips. His eyes flared with joy and lust.


The easy, teasing movements of his finger over her clit nearly sent her over the edge, but Thane wanted to draw her pleasure out. Her hand moved over his, pulling on his wrists, trying to force his movements faster.


She moaned above him, the sound one of wanton need.


Thane released her breast with a loud pop. “You need to come, kitten?”


“Yes, Thane, please.”


“Please what?” He continued to tease her clit while pumping one finger in and out of her tight, wet pussy.


Her eyes flashed emerald fire. “Don’t forget two, or in this case three, can play that game.” Kira locked eyes with him, licked her lips, and began undulating her hips in an erotic dance that would surely set any man aflame.


A shudder racked Thane’s body. Her hips rolled, and with his fingers on and inside her, he could feel her inner muscles working. He let loose a groan. He added a second finger alongside the first, pumping them in tandem to the flicks of the one teasing her clit.


“Yes! Don’t stop. Please, Thane,” Kira said.


“He’s not going to stop, Neko-Chan,” Garrick said, claiming Kira’s lips in another deep kiss.


Thane shoved the couch away from him, replacing his finger on her clit with his lips and tongue, sucking the bit of flesh into his mouth. His eyes closed to half-mast as her flavor burst in his mouth. Her body shook at the approaching orgasm, but he trusted Garrick to keep their Fated from falling. He lapped at her, slowly thrusting his fingers in and out, and then moved to licking her slit. Another long, slow lick, and he was rewarded with her cry of surprise. She was close to coming. From his estimation, it wouldn’t take much to send her over the edge.


He sucked the bundle of nerves into his mouth once again, letting her feel the edge of his teeth.


“Oh, fuck, Thane. What the hell are you doing to me?”


He rumbled against her flesh, knowing the vibrations would be an added stimulation.


Garrick knelt behind Kira, his dark head bent, nibbling along the side of Kira’s neck. Thane shared with him the way Kira tasted, the way she tightened on his fingers. “Why, Kira, I do believe he’s eating you, love,” Garrick whispered wickedly.


Kira’s moan came out breathlessly. “Oh, alrighty then.”


Thane smiled. Her thighs shook slightly. Looking up, he saw Garrick holding her breasts, playing with her nipples, pinching them into hard peaks once again. His cock was like a steel pole at the sight of his best friend and his Fated enjoying her body.


She was gasping, panting with need, her body shuddering between them. Kira was on the verge of climax, her expression almost pained.


He took mercy on all three of them, sucking on her clit with purpose. Using a small amount of power, he hummed, allowing the vibrations to flow into her entire body. Her inner muscles clamped down on his fingers, and she screamed his name as she came. Her hand flew down to hold him to her, her fingers digging into his scalp, and she continued arching against him.


Kira moaned, whimpered, coming down from such an intense climax, her mind completely open to both he and Garrick. Thane kept up the gentle laps and licks, pulling his fingers out when the final pulses of her pussy stopped. If he didn’t fuck his Fated soon, he was going to explode all over the hotel suite floor. He was so damn hard he hurt, and Garrick didn’t look like he was in any better condition.



Not one but two sexy and hot warriors that will please you! Yes I want in!!who wouldn’t with the love and way they treat her! Kira’s Warriors will have you hot and melting in no time. This is the first of the series that I have read but it will not be the last. The author makes sure that her readers have a full action, suspense, demons, and lots of pure hot lust to make it a perfect read for those of us that enjoy an amazing erotica. I believe that yes this can be a standalone but there may be some small information in the other novels to really understand Kira; however,  it didn’t take away from understanding nor loving this jewel!! The plot is well designed and gives you enough description to keep the readers entertained and kept the pages turning on my reader. I loved the whole balance of good vs. bad and then also the sexual tension!

Then you have Garrick and Thane who are the hot bodyguards that will do anything to protect her. However,  little do they know faith has a powerful play in this whole battle!

Elle BoonAuthor Bio


I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest is 14 and my oldest is 20. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live. Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished that goal and several others.


I live in the Midwest, but I”m a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class *WEG*.


I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the imagination in or out of the bedroom. My hope is that after readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with the characters as much as I have.


The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds, and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I truly love to hear from readers. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook or my website, but I’m on Facebook ALL the time, so find me. I’d love to hear from you.
