4.0 out of 5 stars Desert of the Damned August 19, 2013
By Vanessa
Format:Kindle Edition
Desert of the Damned is one of those stories that took me completely by surprise with where it was going. The blurb made me think that there would possibly be a ménage. That is not how things worked out though. So please be aware that with this multiple partner erotic romance you'll get a happily ever after that has you cheering and an anti-hero that has you salivating for more of him. The Native American mythology that tale is immersed in was a wonderful addition to this tale.

Dante has limited time on the Earth plane. His mistress that he has bound himself to in a deal with her brand of devil has him gathering the much needed energy that will hold her world together. Dante has found various means of gathering this energy, though he favor one that will leave you fanning yourself wanting while wanting him to take things further. Oh yes, Dante will leave you hot and bothered.

His current means of procuring this energy is Amy. She has no clue what is really going on with her lover. His brand of loving leaves her wanting more and questioning what is really going on in their quasi relationship. Things at work are getting just as crazy. She a lab rat has been tasked with a field research assignment to find out the reasons behind the odd occurrences in the desert she calls home. Her job is made all the more easier with the partnering of one very sexy park ranger, Jake.

The strange happening in the desert has Jake hoping that the situation is not as bad as it looks. His grandfather who clings to his Native American roots and beliefs consistently warns Jake that there is a great danger in the desert, an otherworldly danger.

4.0 out of 5 stars A HOT read January 6, 2011
This is one of the first erotic romances that I have picked up and I gotta say it got me blushing. The sexual energy was jumping off the pages and the story took off right at the first few pages. Wow, I knew it was going to be a good read. Amy was a very likeable character and I loved reading about the indian folklore and the realm of Anartia. Dante was a little confusing. I couldn't tell if I liked him or hated him. Part of me wanted some good to come from him because I detected that he wasn't really evil though he played the role of the adversary to Jake in this book. Dante sounded very sexy and he had some inner turmoil with the way his life worked out and the choices he was forced to make for the demoness. Jake was a scorcher, hot and very sexual and a shifter. Not the kind of shifter I am used to reading about, it had it's own twist that I thought intriguing. We saw sparks with Amy and Jake right away and I loved watching them fight their sexual attraction at first and then loved it even more when they finally gave in to it. Amy was having mixed emotions because of the sexual games Dante was playing with her and Jake was nervous of who and what he was and had a bad breakup in the past because she discovered what he was. I think maybe things moved pretty quickly and heated up even quicker. I can't wait to get ahold of the next book in this series and am hoping that possibly I will get to see Dante again in the next book or maybe he get's his own???

Hunky rival shape-shifters, a feisty heroine, Native American folklore, a satisfying romance, and of course, smoking hot sex in the desert. What more could a fan of erotic romance want? Kathy Kulig delivers!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a different paranormal May 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay not your average werewolf, vampire or fae, here we have Native American Indian folklore come to life. Very interesting change of pace with a question as to just how evil are the demons or are they? Hot sex and plenty of it. This story stands alone but I'll be looking to see the next one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book April 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is one of those books you have to read that at first it will confuse you because it is between two different worlds. I had to read something twice to understand it. But after I really enjoyed reading the book. It is exciting it is a type of book you may have a hard time putting it down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but repetitive March 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one had a good plot, but could have used a bit more attention to the editing. Some spots were extremely repetitive and that drew your attention away from the story a bit. All in all a decent story, but it didn't leave me excited for the next installment in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A slow read.
Even though this was paranormal, the premise was even too far fetched for that. I plodded through it but would not recommend it.
