Sinful Beauty: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Demon Romance by Leigh Kelsey

Reverse Harems with a Gentle Giant – Part 1

Hello Lovies! This post is brought to you by another reader request. I tried typing out the title at least five times and my autocorrect still wanted to write in Genital Giant. I mean, we’re here for that too. I also kept finding giant penis in my searches, but I digress. Today’s post will involve Reverse Harems with a GENTLE giant. So we’re looking at a big guy (think really tall/muscular/towering) in the harem that looks scary, but is gentle with our main character female. Now, there are numerous types of “gentle giants” and the following men will be kind, loving, and and/or caring towards the main character. Some of the men may, or could be scary/psycho towards others, but never the mc. I personally love this request, and was excited to look for matching books. Looks like my tbr just became longer, again. All blurbs/photos are from Amazon verbatim. As always, Happy Readng! -Quare Eligere

Wolf's Bane (Wolves Next Door Book 1) by Auryn Hadley
Wolf’s Bane (Wolves Next Door Book 1) by Auryn Hadley
Amazon Description

The things that go bump in the night are supposed to be headboards, not monsters.

Leaving my husband was hard. Trying to face the world alone with my teenage daughter is the sort of thing nightmares are made of, but I caught a break. My best friend just hired me for a great job. It's not anything special, simply managing the leasing office of this very fancy and highly exclusive neighborhood, yet the perks mean I get my second chance.

Speaking of perks, my rent-free house is right beside not just one handsome man, but five! Each one is hotter than the last, and all of them seem interested in me. Maybe I can't remember the last date I was on, but if I want to master being a strong woman, then this is a good place to start. It's just dating, right?

Normal life stuff.
Not so much.

Everyone around us has these strange golden eyes. Then there are the questions no one will answer. And who cares if there's a lot of wildlife running around at night? I do, especially when a wolf keeps sneaking into my backyard. I have a kid to worry about. Things have got to change before someone gets bitten!

Normal is going out the window, and fast. My neighbors say I don't belong here, and they don't mean because I'm Hispanic. Never mind that I just heard a man growl. Now they're talking about fated somethings, and I'm pretty sure they mean me.

I feel like I'm going crazy!

Because when I said I wanted to learn how to be strong, this wasn't what I meant at all. Still, when it comes to taking care of my little girl, I will definitely learn how to be the biggest bitch on the block.

I just hope that doesn't become literal.

Wolf's Bane is a 136,000 word, full-length novel with multiple love interests.  Note: Wolves Next Door series contains profanity, consensual sex, and one adult woman who

And if I break, the darkness inside will tear free.

People who she thought were safe might not be. And not only that, but her kidnapper is not willing to give her up without a fight, and he shows her all too well that he will go to some very dangerous lengths to get her back.

Thoughts from Paige

I debated myself about including this series but ultimately decided to include it because it does contain a large harem and is a complete series.  This isn't the type of book that calls to me, but it does have a lot of positive reviews out there.  I do want to point out that later books indicate it is a relatively tame RH, sexy-time wise. Since I haven't read the books I cannot confirm. Reviewers seem to love the final book, some indicating it is one of their favorites. It is a spy/thriller and the consensus around this genre seems to be almost completely positive.

I’d accepted long ago I would die in the very place I’d been born without ever feeling the sun on my skin. Then one day, my mother took me from my father’s religious cult in the wake of his death. Nearly a week later, and after countless hours with her boyfriend Jed’s creepy remarks, I find myself in Washington State. I had only ever interacted with my parents and now Jed, so you can imagine my surprise when I ran smack dab into possibly the most handsome man in the world. He’s not alone though, there are intriguing and handsome men popping up everywhere in my life.

Five days until I turn 18. Five days until my mother realizes what happens when you keep a bird cooped up for too long, only to open its cage. Five days until I am out of here.

Signs of Cupidity: A Fantasy Reverse Harem Story (Heart Hassle Book 1) by Raven Kennedy
Amazon Description

You'd think that basically being in charge of love would be an epic job, right? Wrong. Sure, I can blow some Lust into people's faces and watch the show, but I can't actually participate. It gets old, trust me. Same goes for love. I can pass it out like sugar-free lollipops at a dentist's office, but I can't get any love for myself. It totally sucks.

I used to consider myself a hopeless romantic, so why wouldn't I choose to become a cupid? Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong again. They don't call us stupid cupids for nothing. I'm stuck in this never-ending afterlife where I'm invisible, lonely, and bitter as hell. And yeah, I'm probably responsible for some terrible matchmaking out there. Sorry, not sorry.

All my bad cupid'ing might be why I was exiled from the human realm. You can only do so much before the cupid bosses get all huffy. Unfortunately, my bitterness carried over into the new realm, and then I attacked a fae prince with Love Arrows. Accidentally. Okay, not accidentally. But hey, he deserved it. What I didn't expect was for him to retaliate and hit my ass with some crazy magic mojo strong enough to push me into the physical realm. Whoa.

That's right. This cupid just got a real body. And you know what that means...Now, it's my turn to get some. Love, I mean. Get your head out of the gutter. Wink, wink bitches.

Author's Note: This is a medium-burn reverse harem story. It includes explicit language and sexual situations. Intended for audiences 18 years and older. As this is a series, there will be a cliffhanger.

On top of that, we don't get on. They think I'm a demanding diva. I think they're overdramatic. When a trip to America sends the guys' protective instincts into overdrive, the sizzling tension between us finally breaks, and I learn my bodyguards' heart-pounding secret: they want me.

All three of them.
