Quickies: Dragon Baby

Having The Hot Boss’s Baby!

More of a deeply annoyed, than an enemies to lovers story, with a paranormal twist. Although this is book #5 in the Night and Day Ink Series, it can totally be read as a standalone. If you are reading in order, several characters from the earlier stories make cameos.

Thane Dreki is actually a silent partner in the company who is needed to step up and help out since all the main players are essentially on their honeymoon. Oh, and he is a Dragon! Yumm! He comes with a mix of baggage you’ll discover along the way, but the most important to note is that there is a cut off period to mate or he’ll die.

Lily Cruz is yet another one of the tiger cousin working within the company. She finds herself temporarily acting as Thane’s assistant because of those same honeymoon issues, even though that is not anywhere near her job duties. She has baby fever just like the other she-cats, but does NOT want a wolf shifter baby-daddy, or perhaps even a shifter at all. She has enough drama llama baggage from her fox shifter ex-husband.

snowSnow Changes Everything!
… Ok, not just the snow, but that’s where it all starts!😊

A lot of story is packed into this 3.5 hr audiobook. Lots of smexy times and a HEA. This can be listened to for free through the Audible Escape program.

I don’t know if there are any more books planned for this series, or perhaps a spin-off. I would really love to hear Saxon’s HEA story! I sent a message to the author to see if I could get some more info. I will post if I hear anything!

♥ Author/Narrator ♥

Author Milly Taiden writes mostly short stories with a paranormal flavor ➕ Smexy. She is great about giving content warnings, so please read them before selecting this title.

** MT gives this following Listener’s note: This is one sexy, sweet story about a man who needs a mate to survive and a woman who wants a family. There’s action, drama, and lots of bad words and hot sex. If that’s not your thing, keep it moving. If you like that stuff, check this baby out!

This story is performed by Lauren Sweet, who also narrates most of MT’s catalog. Overall she does a great job, but there were some accents that were not right to me. It was side characters and less than a chapter worth of dialog, so easy enough to get through.

♥ Audio Production ♥

Original speed seemed a bit fast to me. I listened @ 0.95 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Quickies: The Ridge Brothers Bear Shifters: Boxed Set


Dominant Alfa Shifters And Their Fated Mates.

This is a complete set of stories for the Ridge Brothers Bear Shifters Series by Olivia T. Turner. These are also available individually, but this box set makes for a great value for your credits.

The series takes place during modern day, with a slight variation. Shifters are not a secret, but I get the impression it is not exactly a well known thing either. The fated mate plays heavily and is instant. These dominant males are very possessive, if not obsessed with their mates. Lots of insta lust/love. If that kind of details offends you, then you might want to pass.

I could of done without all the “virgins”, and some of the violence that is a bit over the top. I was left with a few logistical questions, but not that big of a deal for such short stories. There are great epilogues for each story, with the last book having the best.

This was my first listen by Olivia T. Turner, but I am open to more. I have already added some of her single titles to my library.

Cassandra Myles, Noel Harrison, Jack Stella, Meg Sylvan, Beth Roeg, Tristan James, Tor Thom, Lauren Sweet, all contributed performances to this box set. There is going to be someone you like more, but everyone is solid.

Quickies: The Dragon’s Psychic

New Dragon Series!

Great characters and world building. For a first in series book, the balance of new info to story was excellent. There is a lot of action, a little steam, a few laughs, and even a tear or two. The main characters get a HEA/HFN ending as this has an over arcing theme that will carry through for the next two books. This is a trilogy, but I could see room to add more stories after this set is complete. 🤞

This is a shifter story so there is insta-love and mate claiming, but it all just works. There is some violence and memories of violence, as that is part of the heroine’s main gift.

This is my first time with author Linzi Baxter. She has put her own spin on this new shifter series and her characters will pull you in from the start. I’m excited to listen to more. Hopefully the rest of this series will make it to audio soon!

This story is performed in dual POV of the two main characters Talia and Kirin. Heather Costa is new to me but I feel she did a good job, especially being paired with veteran, Jeffrey Kafer. If you listen to a lot of Sci-Fi & Fantasy like I do, Jeffrey should not be be a new narrator to you. As always, he is excellent.

I find that by adjusting the playback speed greatly improves the production. Heather played best at 0.95x and Jeffrey at 0.90x speeds. I ultimately settled for 0.90x as constant adjustments proves taxing.

Quickies: Shifters Forever: Boxed Set


Great Box Set, Hope There Is More!

This is a complete set of stories for the first paranormal series by Elle Thorne. There are many more spin-offs in the same world, but it all started with this one. It is also the first to be in audio. It’s a great value for your credits.

The world building is vivid and believable. The mythology is important as it sets up a little of everything that is and will come to be in the future titles.

There are a few times I wish I could of had just one more chapter or an epilogue with details of something mentioned in the last chapter, but I believe that is by design. It may not be the current series, but it will eventually come full circle.

This was my first experience with this author, but I definitely want more. I have already purchased the next box set.

Meghan Kelly’s performance was solid as always. Book #6 had more males in a conversation than I think she has voices for, but it wasn’t too distracting. Normally her male to female ratio of voices is spot on.

I didn’t notice any issues with the audio production. I listened at 1.00x speed.

Quickies‎: Dovis


Alien Werewolf, Trust Me, It’s Hot!

Don’t let Dovis’s outward appearance turn you away. He has another form, and it’s hot! His “skin” form is actually rare among his people, and comes with “extras”.  😉 This also makes him an outcast on his home planet, and a perfect candidate for this ragtag crew.

I simply adored Mari! She really brought the feels. Like horse in swap feels! (for my fellow 80’s children) I want to wrap her up in hugs and hide her in my pocket. Yes she fared better in slavery than most, but the poor girl doesn’t even know how old she is.

This story starts where the first one left off, as they acquire Mari from the Techie station they stopped at for upgrades in book one. Most of the action takes place on The Vorge.

It’s steamy, and like the others, it carries a “Contains mature themes” warning. So you are warned.

Laurann Dohner is a very creative author.

New Narrator, Summer Roberts also did well with both genders and the various species of aliens.

Overall 👍 and I am excited for the next series which is York’s story!

Quickies‎: Cathian


Action And Steam, With A Whole New Series.

The action was good and the story was steamy. It was a great start to a new Science Fiction Romance series. It’s not listed as an erotic series, but might as well be, given what the stories are mostly about at their core. Each book focuses on one of the crew taking a mate. And they all give a “Contains mature themes” warning.

Cathian’s needs are a bit intense and as he is the only one of his species on board the ship, it makes for a rather unique situation. He is the captain of an ambassador ship that affords him certain privileges, however he runs it with ❤, for his crew is the family he has chosen rather than of blood. There is a lot of smexy times to be had, but it is surrounded by lots of action, witty banter, and cleverness.

So excited to get to listen to Laurann Dohner’s work.

Narration was great. Callie did well with both genders and the various species of aliens.

Overall I am very excited for this new series and can’t wait to binge the rest of it!

I listened through Audible Escape.

Review: Surrender Sweet Succubus



A Lot of Heart to Go with the Steam.

Surrender Sweet Succubus is a standalone, by Jewel Quinlan.

P.J. Ochlan narrates.

HEA, NO cheating, NO cliffhangers!

Length: 2 hrs and 15 mins

Content Warning: Sex: YES!

This title is currently available through Audible Escape.

Quite a touching little story for a short erotic title.

Stephen is a doctor with some bonus gifts. He is a shaman and according to him, has seem some sh*t. His brother and sister-n-law are desperate for a baby and are hoping there may be some “other” way of help. Stephen goes in search of a Succubus that has the “magic touch” he is looking for and gets far more than he ever thought he needed. It’s only a couple hours long, but still had a good bit of character and world building that made it seem much longer. An epilogue of their future would of been nice, but that’s just my romantic heart talking. 😊

Jewel Quinlan is new to me but not for long. I really liked this story and plan to check out her other Audible Escape titles.

P.J. Ochlan is not completely new to me, but I have only heard him once before. Just as the time before, he didn’t disappoint. Very few characters, but each had an unique voice which was a delight to my ears. The accents were varied and sounded authentic.

**Note: Names with 2 initials work wonky in search results. You can get 3+ separate results so if you are not finding what you are looking for, adjust your spaces and/or periods. The proper library way of it should be, P.J. Ochlan, but you can also try P. J. Ochlan, & PJ Ochlan.
