Nov 7th – Nov 14th
For years I was a good wife, watching my husband, Christian, the mob boss for the Cerisi crime family, sleep with every woman in sight.
But all that changed after an impromptu girl’s trip to Chicago which led me to a passionate one-night-stand with a handsome, blue-eyed, stranger who was everything Christian was not.
Unfortunately, he wouldn’t be a stranger for very long.
All I wanted was to put that night behind me.
All he wanted was to relive it…
Full length standalone with a guaranteed HEA!!!!

Title: “Savage Silence: A Dire Wolves Mission (The Devil’s Dires, #4)”
Author: Ellis Leigh
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2016
A Dires Mission Not To Be Missed!
Book 4 of The Devil’s Dires is arguably the most emotional of the series yet. While three of his Dire brethren have found their fated mates, weapons expert, Thaus, holds no such aspirations. He is a loner, and while maybe not content, he is resolved to live and run in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, leaving only when his brothers need his support, or to handle business for the NALB.
It is on one such NALB assignment to “broker a contract”, (and Thaus cannot understand why he, a Dire, was sent on such a trivial mission) that Thaus finds out the focus of the contract, a displaced Omega, is in fact his fated mate!
With one pack trying to protect her and another trying to claim her, all Omega Ariel wants is to be left alone. Held captive and horribly abused by rogue shifters, Ariel trusts no one; she will never again be dominated by anyone; she can’t stand to be touched by anyone; and despite the agonizing effects the call to mate with the towering shifter sent to mediate have on her, Ariel knows she can only remain safe…and free…if she runs.
Thaus is devastated not only by not being able to claim his mate, but also by the depth of her trauma. His instincts make him want to find and kill those responsible for Ariel’s pain, but those same instincts tell him that something is off about the pack trying to claim Ariel…and trouble is coming. Alerting the other Dires, Thaus takes Ariel to his mountain retreat – after she agrees, of course – and reinforces his compound, hoping his brothers arrive before the trouble does.
Though Ariel’s trauma runs deep, she is still unable to fully resist the mating call, and a slow, hesitant dance of sexual exploration begins between the two shifters. Ariel is amazed not only at Thaus’ willingness to allow her to test and reclaim her sexuality, but at his patience and gentleness. Finding out Thaus is a Dire however, makes Ariel wonder if she can reconcile the gentle man she’s falling in love with, and the savage beast who shares his soul.
Trouble does finally show up in an unexpected way, and when Ariel is taken, the Dire in Thaus takes over.
Another well-written installment to the series, with good detailed attention given to a character who has suffered serious sexual abuse. This is a Dires mission not to be missed.
He’s been alone for years. Marooned on a deserted island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, he long ago let go of the pleasantries and mannerisms of civilization. He’s become a savage, driven by instinct and impulse—more animal than man.
Then she washes up on his island, and everything changes. Her survival becomes more important that his. Her needs more essential than his own. Her pleasure more imperative than his.
This woman becomes his whole life. Not because she’s the first woman he’s seen in years, but because she’s the one he’s spent his whole life waiting for.
But will she feel the same? Will she be able to bring the man back from the savage? Or will she bring even more of the savage out of the man?
Either way, this tropical island’s about to get even hotter.
“Make love to me,” I whispered, slowly wrapping one finger at a time around his erection straining through his loincloth. It was the first time he’d let me touch him like this, and feeling his arousal in my palm spurred my own into uncharted territory until I was consumed by my need.
His head fell back when I stroked him. “Right now, after everything”—he spoke as though each word were a chore to utter, his forehead creasing deeper with every slide of my hand—“I couldn’t make love to you the way a woman like you deserves.”
Instead of disappointing me, the prospect of the alternative made my need grow. “Why not?”
His arms fell back, his hands curling into the sand like he was trying to get a good grip as my touch became stronger. “I’ve been alone for years . . .” He thrust his hips when I circled his head with my pinkie. “I’ve been fantasizing about you for weeks . . . I couldn’t make love to you the way you mean.”
I needed to feel him, flesh to flesh—I needed to feel his steel sliding against the soft flesh of my palm. Working the ties of his loincloth free as quickly as I could, I let it fall to the sand, exposing his body.
“Then what would you do to me?” My teeth sank into my lip as my eyes dropped to his manhood. Everything about him was large and male. Every part of him made me feel sick with want. “What have you been fantasizing about?”
Unable to stare without touching any longer, I moved my hand back to his straining cock, drawing a moan from both of us.
“I’ve lived as a savage for years. I’ve lived an existence more animal than human. That’s the way I want to take you.” His eyes clamped closed as I stroked him. “I want to throw you onto all fours, shove between your legs, and fuck you until you can’t walk. I want to come inside you until I can’t come anymore and every last seed in my body is swimming in yours. I want to mate with you. I want to breed you. I want to mount you and make you scream my name while I take your body again, and again”—something dark flashed in his eyes when they opened, his cock throbbing in my hand—“and again.”
I wasn’t sure when I’d stopped breathing, but I had. I was so wet from his words and feeling his cock in my hand that it was running down my legs. “Then what are you waiting for?”
Glancing at the ground behind me, he lifted his chin. “I’m waiting for you to get on all fours and show me you want the same.”
My nipples hardened at the rumble in his voice. Letting go of his cock, my hands slipped under the shoulders of the coat, slowly letting it fall down my arms. When Grant’s gaze dropped from my face, his throat bobbed as he roamed my chest. As his eyes dropped down my stomach, landing on my pussy, the corners of his eyes creased. I looked down with him, unable to miss the glistening wetness coating my body down there. The ache to feel him moving inside me became too much to bear. Turning around, I slowly lowered onto my hands, digging my knees into the cool sand.
Behind me, Grant’s breaths were ragged as I heard him stir from his position. He didn’t touch me as he moved up behind me, making me feel like I was choking on my heartbeat. “Make sure this is what you want.”
“Why?” I panted, tipping my hips up higher, needing him to sheath himself inside me before I passed out.
“Because once I have you, I’m going to want you again right after. And again right after that.” His palms drilled into the meat of my backside, kneading me roughly. “You give me your body now, you’ll give it to me again. Whenever I ask you to. Whenever I feel my cock stir, it will be your body that sates it.” One of his hands skimmed down my ass, pausing outside of my opening. He grunted when he felt fresh wetness spill from me. “I’ve been patient for a long time. Let me mate with you like the animal I’ve become, and I’ll never be patient again. Are you sure you’re ready for that? Are you sure you know the magnitude of my need?”

“Savage Seduction: A Dire Wolves Mission (The Devil’s Dires Book 3)”
Author: Ellis Leigh
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: July 12, 2016
That moment when you have so much you want to say, you can’t say anything. Okay, moment gone! WOW! Definitely never saw any of this coming!
Things aren’t looking good for Mammon. After more than two years investigating a new, small pack involved in what he is sure is criminal activity, Mammon has no proof of anything. Even worse, he’s being ordered off the fruitless investigation by none other than NALB President, Blasius Zenne, himself. He only has two weeks to find some kind of proof, or move on to his assigned official business…or face disciplinary action.
Not one too fond of rules, Mammon grudgingly agrees to comply. Determined to find evidence against his targets, Mammon becomes more proactive…and double talks his way into a gathering at the pack alpha’s residence. Not sure of what he’s looking for, he expects to see the alpha and his pack members. He doesn’t expect to see his fated mate standing next to the alpha.
And then things get interesting.
Despite the powerful pull of the mating haze, Mammon is convinced the Fates have totally screwed up this time. Bez and Levi may have found their mates, but there’s no way HIS mate stands with a man Mammon considers his enemy, pack alpha, Finn O’Rourke.
But, looks are deceiving and there is more to his fated mate, Charmeine Byrne, than meets the eye. There’s even more to the man Mammon assumes she’s with. All it takes is a little bit of trust for everyone to get on the same page.
However, trust is in short supply…for everyone. Family, friends, alliances. The past that Charmeine and Finn share with their pack doesn’t give them much reason to trust anyone. Yet, Finn extends an olive branch to Mammon, hoping Charmeine will stop trying to resist the call to mate…at some point. But Charmeine’s a hard nut to crack. Her trust issues run deeper than even she realized. She’s not ready to trust Mammon, and isn’t sure if she ever will be, but she does let down her guard enough for Mammon to get his hands on her…and most definitely vice versa! Slowly, she does establish an easy enough “friendship” with Mammon, spending more and more time together, with…and without clothes. Her ‘filthy beast’ is growing on her, and she’s very close to the line of trust, but unable to cross. She does allow Mammon access into her life though, and he finds out his mate is a tortured, but impressive Omega, like Sariel and Amy, mates to Bez and Levi. Mammon comes to understand Charmeine (and Finn) and the life they’ve lived, and he’s determined, assisted by his Dire brothers, to eliminate the threat to them once and for all. Unfortunately, too late he realizes that an equally dangerous threat is right in their midst, and trusted by his mate.
To say this series keeps getting better and better is putting it mildly. The author is so adept at the story-build, that even though the reader is ready for anything, the author can still make them sit up and say, “Whaaaaaaaat????” There’s a scene…Dires at an airstrip…in triangle formation. I was like, “This is some next-level, paranormal, sit-on-the-edge-of your-seat, Kindle-gripping ISH!” Because it’s who they’re standing against that blew me away! Who do you cheer for if you love everybody? Fortunately, a temporary meeting of the minds diffused the situation. But we do get to see the Dires in battle (c’mon, it’s an Ellis Leigh story – there WILL be a battle! LOL!). It’s enough they’re the biggest and baddest of all shifters, but now they’re also pissed off. Loved it!
These are flawed characters with STRONG personalities. It is a plus they know their flaws, and while they may not readily admit them, they don’t deny them either. My heart broke a bit for Mammon. To believe you’re on the hunt for criminals, and find the mate you never expected right in their midst…and she denies you…well, it made me dislike Charmeine instantly. LOL! But, I should have known better because I’ve never disliked a lead female in any of this author’s books. As you learn Charmeine’s back story, you find more tragedy and loss than any one person should ever have to deal with. She has not only survived, but she’s determined to protect and help her pack survive, always putting their needs ahead of her own. Even when backed into a corner in an impossible situation, she does not back down or cry and surrender. She feels her mate and his brothers close by, but she wants her pack family saved at all costs. There’s no way you can do anything but admire that type of strength!
The Dires are forces to be reckoned with one-on-one, together…it’s just madness! LOL! Even newly mated Bez shows up! Scroll up, 1-click and join the madness!
