Crystal Jordan has released three of her Wereplanet novellas in one book called Carnal Desires. Fans of her work will shout for joy!

"In Heat"

Recently returned from a trip, Varad Mohan walks into the ballroom of his palace and immediately smells his wife. She is in heat and Varad knows that once she sees him, nothing will do but for them to mate, no matter that their passion has seemed to have dimmed with the death of their child. Varad knows that his queen will never turn him down but getting her to admit that she loves him once more is another thing and Varad won't settle for less.

Mahlia sees her husband, King Varad across the crowded room. Her senses kick in and the only thing she knows to do is run. She runs because she can't stomach the thought of delivering another child with the possibility of losing it like she lost her infant son. Her plans go awry when Varad catches her and proceeds to show her how the king of all weretigers makes love to his mate.

"In Heat" was out of this world hot. I love the concept of mating heat and uncontrollable desire. Varad loves his queen but in his inability to deal directly with his child's death, he hurt her and while he realizes this almost too late, I thought him quite honorable to admit his feelings to her and show weakness when he was supposed to always be strong. Mahlia's character was a bit dearer to my heart because of her sadness and total devastation at the loss of her son. My heart ached for her.

"In Smoke"

Weredragon Lady Katryn has been living with weretigers on the planet of Vesperi for her entire life.

Carnal Desires, 3 stories set in a very distant future, were the people of Earth fled to space after the Sun went super nova. To survive humans spliced their DNA with tigers, bears,reptiles and sea creatures. All living on 4 different worlds.

This book tells the story of the Amir and Amira (king and queen) of the tiger shifters first. Great world building and a story of tragedy and love.

The second story is of the dragon shifters, an arranged marriage of a female dragon shifter, who grew up on the tiger shifters planet, daughter of the ambassador, to 2 dragon lords, again great world building.

The last story is of the contained merpeople. The ambassador to the other planets finds himself in charge of a human female from 500 years in the past who's ship was found drifting in space. She is a genius scientist who helped design much of their technology, which was becoming lost to all the races. All 3 stories intertwine, and characters from the previous storys return.

I really enjoyed this collection of stories. There is a story of the bear shifters found in the anthology Sexy Beast V, titled In Ice, and 2 other stories of miner characters found in the Carnal Desires Short Story bundle.

Wow, what a disappointment! I spent so much money for three very, very short stories. The characters weren't well developed at all. If you want something good to read...and worth your money...try R.G. Alexander, Children of the Goddess books, Kresley Cole, A Hunger Like No Other (Great!) or Michelle Pillow, the first Dragon Lord book.

This book will knock your socks off! I bought this book because I was intrigued by the stories (I love futuristics and shifter novels.) and am I sooo glad I did. Thank you, Crystal Jordan for writing this wonderful novel! IT is on my keeper shelf for life!

This book has 3 short stories and they are FABULOUS! Do I need to say more?! In this anthology Crystal Jordan shines. All of her stories are complete reads that displayed remarkable story telling. She seamlessly writes stories that got me involved and teary-eyed. The amazing thing is that each story is rather short. I don't know how she was able to convey such feeling and emotions within each character to the extent that I wanted to be in the world she had created. Plus she satisfied my always demanding need to know more about the world and culture the author envisions. A lot of authors elude to certain rituals, ways of living etc and never follow up on why or how this different culture shapes the characters. She takes the time to really get you to care for her characters but also be mesmerized by the deep love and STEAMY sex scenes. I could feel how much each of the male heroes wanted and needed their 'mates.' And... Oh! Did I love it.

In Heat is the first story and goes over the tiger king and the mates he desires. How he claims her is too delicious for words.
In Smoke we meet the Lady Katryn who has been bartered into a weredragon alliance. Although she is also a weredragon she has never lived in this society and when she finds that her intended mate has a male lover who is also attracted to her, and both men intend to share her, well things really start to get very interesting.
The last story In Mist is my fav .
