Grav N’gol is many things. Murderer…ex-con…Alien half-breed… 
And a Protector. 
More than just a bodyguard, a Protector chooses a female to ward for life and swears an oath to die for her if necessary. 

Enter Leah Roth. The luscious little Earth female is supposed to be just a quick surveillance gig for Grav. He’ll check on her and report back that she’s okay—it should be easy. 

Only she’s not okay. 

When Grav sees Leah’s abusive husband hurting her, he swings into action. Before he knows it, he has Leah aboard his ship. When he’s given a dangerous and difficult mission, Leah volunteers to come alone and help…and somehow Grav can’t say no. 

But as much as he feels drawn to the lovely little human, Grav knows it can never be between them. For in his past lurks a bloody and savage secret that would turn even the most forgiving heart against him. 

From his past and from his true nature Leah must be...Protected at all costs. 


Protected: Alien Mate Index Book 2 is an amazing alien sci-fi romance adventure.  Book two picks up right after book one in the series.  Protected has its own plot and a sub-plot that carries over from Abducted.  You can read this book as a stand-alone, but you will enjoy it more if you read the first book. 

Two of the main characters in Protected were secondary characters in book one.  Grav and Leah dominate this main plot.  Grav is sent to watch over Leah and make sure that nothing happens to her.  While watching her on Earth, he can’t help but step in and get Leah to safety.  Grav never stopped to think his actions through.  He just knew that Leah had to be protected no matter what.  Who better to keep her safe than him?

Leah hasn’t felt safe in a long time so she can’t fathom why a giant, blue alien makes her feel safe.  Leah enjoys Grav’s company and the security that he provides.  Soon she’s wanting more than just security from Grav.  Leah wants to feel all over and she wants Grav to help her. 

Grav and Leah dance around each other.  Neither wanting to push the other into an uncomfortable situation.  Evangeline Anderson does such a fantastic job of growing their relationship that the reader can’t help but fall in love with these characters.  It’s a wonderful journey about building up trust while falling in love. 

Of course there are many trials and tribulations that Grav and Leah must face together.  I won’t give away spoilers, but you will see some returning characters that feed the main plot.  Then there is the sub-plot with the villain.  I absolutely loved the way Evangeline Anderson portrayed the returning villain.  While reading in bed, I laughed so hard I woke my husband up.

Protected is a paranormal romance with humor, action, and great imagination.  I highly recommend this series.

Dakota Cassidy, How Nina Got Her Fang Back (Accidentally Paranormal Series Book 13)

Title:  How Nina Got Her Fang Back: Accidental Quickie (Accidentally Paranormal Series Book 13)
Author:  Dakota Cassidy
Rating:  Five Siren Stones
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Keywords:  Vampires, Witches, Werewolves, Genies, Manservant, Zombie, Werewolf/Demon, Bear Shape-Shifter
Page Count:  198             
ISBN E-Book:   Amazon Digital Services LLC
Price:  $3.99
Publisher:  Self-Published
Reviewer:  Stacey Krug


It’s been a while since Nina Statleon—ex-coffin lover, current chicken wing lover—lost her vampire mojo during a particularly brutal OOPS case. Her friends Wanda and Marty are worried. Nina clearly hasn’t dealt with the emotional fallout caused by losing one’s immortality. She’s got issues. Big issues. 

And it’s time to call in the Big Gun—Paranormal Psychologist January Malone. Her friends will get Nina to the therapist’s office, even if they have to lure her with last bag of Cheetos in Manhattan. 

Of course, the girls couldn’t possibly know that Doctor Malone has an agenda. A forced agenda involving blackmail, which may just save one life…while ending another. It goes against everything January, a white witch, has ever believed in, personally and professionally. 

But the alternative means putting her trust in a foul-mouthed ex-vampire, her werewolf and halfsie friends, a demon, a zombie, a bear and their assorted mates… 


***Author Note: This is an Accidental Quickie and shorter in length than prior novels in the series.*** 


How Nina Got Her Fang Back is the thirteenth book in the Accidental Series.  It is a novella so expect a shorter book, but don’t worry it still packs a mighty punch.  Without giving away spoilers, How Nina Got Her Fang Back is a must read for all you die-hard Accidental Series followers.  Nina’s book will bridge the gap between the last full length and the next novel.  Things happen that you don’t want to miss out on knowing before the next book!

How Nina Got Her Fang Back will delight you with Nina’s very colorful use of the English language.  If you have delicate sensibilities when it comes to foul language then skip this book or suck it up for the fun story.

Even when the OOPS ladies set out to help one of their own, it’s never just about them.  They have a greater impact on their community in this edition.  Paranormal council politics play a role in the outcome of this HEA ending.  We never really had to deal with the Council in previous books.  This book takes a closer look at the politics and the players.  However, it’s not all about politics, we meet some new paranormals with problems and the OOPS girls swoop in to help.

I really enjoyed January Malone, her love interest, and the role that she played throughout this story.  The OOPS girls’ mates are on stage more in this book.  They’ve been on the back burner lately so it was good to see them again.

The plot is fast moving with engaging characters and plot twists that will have you glued to the pages until the end.  I highly recommend you read this story before the next Accidental book.
