Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Sizzling HOT! Warning: Lots of two-somes, three-somes, even more-somes, like it stimulating, arousing, and positively natural…or supernatural.

Tagline: Will Trevor rescue Lindsey in time to save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want saved?


Chance and his LIIA pack of agents search for rogue Lycan mastermind, Smoke, kidnapper of Lindsey and fifteen other human women he plans to use for procreating his own army.
Trevor, Chance’s right-hand Lycan, wants his mate back, but believes she’s fallen for her captor. Lindsey loves Trevor but believes he’s given up on her.

Will Trevor come around in time to rescue Lindsey and save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want back with Trevor after spending so long apart?

***Released in June, 2013***


Short Excerpt:

So far, Smoke didn’t share Lindsey with other males, but she was aware of the orgies inside the central building. She heard a few women talk of them. Some even liked them, being surrounded by hard-bodied men hung like rocket launchers. Those women went at it without the use of the stimulation drug Smoke used on everyone else.

She was used to the little needle pricks and welcomed them. It made acting the part with Smoke so much easier, believing in her heart Trevor made love to her, but guarding that fact from Smoke by holding Trevor’s name in the secret place, locked safely away.

Lindsey understood some of the sexual attraction. She had that once, but she couldn’t go there in her mind. Smoke searched her thoughts almost daily and always found if she’d tapped into any memory nuggets of people she loved. He possessed psychic abilities others didn’t. Already, the thoughts of Trevor that had emerged she’d need to bury before Smoke returned.

If an orgy ensued during their pack meeting, Smoke would be preoccupied for a good while. She reached her arm underneath the mattress, where a few weeks ago she saw Smoke slide his journal. Lindsey had fallen asleep with her back to the fireplace. A crack of thunder wakened her in time to witness Smoke closing a journal and placing it beneath the mattress they shared.

Lindsey touched its leather cover, wrapped her fingers around it, and hauled it out.



I want to preface this review with a few facts about Harlie’s hard limits in reading erotic romance.

1.  I don’t do orgies.  Three is enough for me.

2. I have issues when drugs are involved.  Lived that with my younger brother when he was a teenager.

3.  I don’t like the heroine or hero sleeping with someone else.

Okay, now that you know some of my hard limits on with the review.

I will have to say that Ms. Royal has written a fascinating book on the Lycans.  I was drawn into the story from the start and no, I haven’t read the first book in the series.  I loved Chase so I’m going to read his story very soon.

For me, this book is hard to review.  On one hand, I loved it.  It was fast paced, heart stopping and the action was awesome.  I like Lindsey and Trevor.  They had great chemistry together and I completely understood the pull that they had for each other.  I also liked the fact that Trevor and his pack were a very close knit group.  Even Lindsey having to deal with Smoke, I understood…somewhat.  Plus, Ms. Royal can write a book.  This isn’t my first book by her and I will definitely read more.

My biggest issue with the book is Smoke.  He has got to be one of the most vile characters that I’ve ever read.  There is nothing redeeming about him.  Nothing.  He uses drugs to have make women have sex with him and his pack.  That’s were I drew the line.  I skipped over those parts of the book.  I don’t do orgies, drugs or having anything to do with drugged out sex.  I realize that’s part of the story and the chief motivation to get Lindsey and Trevor together but it made me very uncomfortable.  Unfortunately, what Smoke does in the paranormal world holds true in the real world.

I’m not going to discourage you to NOT read this book.  Other than the drugged out orgies and subject matter regarding Smoke, the book is excellent.  Ms. Royal has built a world that is engaging, fascinating and gripping.  I’ve never read a shifter world like this and its good.  Her characters are vile when needed, loving and caring towards each other and the brotherhood of the pack is awesome.  My only issue was the amount of sex that is written in the book.  I do look forward to the third book in this series because I have to find out if they can stop Smoke.



Savage Smoke Final Button

Kay Dee Royal Guest Post – Lycan, Vampire, Kodiac-were, and what next?

Hello everyone;) Thanks so much for having me at your place today 🙂 I appreciate you for letting me share a bit about Savage Smoke and the beings who roam the pages…

Lycan, Vampire, Kodiac-were, and what next?

So, if you’ve read the first book in the Lycan International Investigation Agency series (Staring Into the Eyes of Chance) you have met Chance Grayton’s pack of werewolves or Lycan who shift into wolves;) You’re familiar with Chance, the Alpha, and his usual wolf-shifter abilities like boosted strength, enhanced senses, running like the wind, jumping almost as high as two men, the heightened sexual appetite, plus talking within the pack telepathically. He deals with another gift…premonitions, which he considers more of a curse than an ability;)

Olivia, his primal-mate, possesses an extra sensitive psyche ability for reading any wildlife/animals and it comes in pretty handy when dealing with Chance’s pack or any being outside the pack.

Smoke, the rogue wolf-shifter, carries an extra psychic ability to read minds, and it comes in pretty handy with him being the villain of the series.

There’s more to Chance’s pack than what I’ve given you here…but I wanted to move on to the new species introduced in Book 2 – Savage Smoke.

You’ll meet a female half-breed (half Lycan wolf and half vampire). Both species have shunned her off-and-on throughout her life. And bigger yet, no one can mark her after mating…she’s more like a black widow in that respect.

There’s much more to the story of a sensual female vampire…she’s got an insatiable thirst for werewolf blood, the same blood that would normally kill a vampire if ingested. She rocks somebody’s world…until?

And, my favorite new Lycan species…a couple male Kodiak-weres – yes, gentle giants who’d rather make love than war…it’s their unique tools (body parts) and pheromones they scatter helter-skelter. They always draw a sexually stimulated crowd. Talk about ‘love-ins’ – Whew…this species can outperform any beings’ stamina.

I’ve already got some other Lycan beings cooking inside my boiling pot of a mind…and they’ll be making a grand entrance in Book 3 – Smoke -n- Bliss.

What kind of Shifter would you want me to introduce (not including those mentioned here)?

Chance, a Lycan alpha and leader of the Lycan International Investigation Agency (LIIA) throws himself into his investigations. He chooses to neglect his duty of finding a primal-mate after watching his father become an empty shell over the loss of his.

A murderous rogue pack draws Chance onto Olivia’s wildlife preserve, sending Olivia’s animal sensitivities into overdrive. Chance and Olivia discover a sizzling force driving them together.

Will they succumb to its enticing tether, or fight to resume their loveless lives apart?

  1. Harlie…I’m very late to your party…very sorry. You have a wonderful place;) Thank you so much for hosting me and my series, specifically Savage Smoke. And, I appreciate your honest book review…and you’re right, there is a lot of sexual scenes. Whew! But it makes me so happy to hear that you’ve picked up on the loyalty, caring, closeness of Chances pack of Lycan:)

    1. Hi Victoria – thank you for stopping in and checking out Savage Smoke – and my Lycan series:) I’ve truly enjoyed the pack as I’m writing and totally resonated with Olivia…even though this is more involved with Lindsey and Trevor…and will they ever get their act together:) Smoke…yes, well, he will have his moment in the next book, although, Harlie has him pegged at being un-redeemable…and I tend to agree – so guess we’ll see what happens next:) Good Luck in the drawing:)

So what do you think?
