The Battle Sylph by LJ McDonald

He is one of many: a creature of magic, unrelentingly male. He is lured through the portal by pure female beauty, a virgin sacrifice. She is killed, and he is silenced and enslaved.

Such a dark ritual is necessary. Unlike their elemental cousins—those gentler sylphs of wind and fire—battlers find no joy in everyday labor. Their magic can destroy an army or demolish a castle, and each has but one goal: find his queen, then protect and pleasure her at any cost. What would a maiden do if she were given such a servant? What would befall that kingdom foolish enough to allow a battler to escape? Young Solie and the people of Eferem are about to find out.

Beastmistress by Virginia Reede

How did a nice Irish girl end up naked—or nearly so—in the court of an Indian rajah?

Leandre is the latest gift to the powerful and handsome Sukumar, and she knows the smart thing to do would be to seduce the rajah and become his favorite. But pride and temper, her weaknesses since childhood, conspire to destroy her plans. Instead of ending up in the Rajah’s bed, she finds herself about to become a sacrificial meal for his palace pets—man-eating Bengal tigers.

All his life Bhavesh has dreamed of Prahleandra, the tiger goddess who, in the form of a beautiful woman with skin like milk and hair the color of honey, took a human husband. Just when his dream has finally become flesh, it seems he will lose her to Sukumar’s tigers.

The tigers, however, have ideas of their own.

Warrior Ascended by Addison Fox (The Sons of the Zodiac)

Charming, proud, and impulsive, Leo Warrior Brody Talbot is fighting what may be his final battle. Enyo, the Goddess of War, plans to fulfill an ancient prophecy to destroy humanity by harnessing the dark power of the Summoning Stones of Egypt. There’s only one person who knows enough about the stones to help Brody stop her-beautiful museum curator Ava Harrison.

Never in all his centuries has Brody met a woman who enthralls him like Ava. But, bound to protect her, he struggles to deny his passion as they are drawn into a dark and dangerous final reckoning between good and evil.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
