PASSION TRANSFORMS THEM
As the leader of the Team, a pack of werehounds forced to hide their very existence, former special ops soldier Niles Latimer is desperate to prove a man's heart beats beneath his predator's body. And Leigh-the mysterious beauty possessing powers she doesn't yet understand-may be the one woman who can help him. But Niles isn't the only one who recognizes Leigh's true identity. Something evil is waiting in the woods-and the hunt has begun . . .
Kiss of the Vampire
Warriors of the Rift
Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos.
Half-demon, half-human, Nix de la Fuente is accepted by neither and mistrusted by both. Determined to prove she's more human than not, she devotes herself to solving crimes between the world's mortals and its most unsavory undead. But her latest case brings her face to face with the one vampire she could never resist . . .
Called in to investigate a string of violent murders, special agent Tobias Caine isn't interested in rekindling his relationship with Nix. Yet one look and the vampire knows his need for her is as strong as ever. Once, their all-consuming passion nearly cost Nix her fragile hold on her humanity. Now, as their hunger for one another intensifies, exposing them to an unimaginable danger, it could cost them both their lives.

Aidan bewitches Kate right into his bed, where they have the hottest sex she’s ever experienced. But is there more to this mysterious stranger than meets the eye? Kate crashes head-on into a world where witchcraft is alive and well and ancient evil still holds sway—and where she’s in grave danger of losing more than just her heart.
I enjoyed this story and it kept me hooked till the end, I just had to find out what happened! I had mixed feelings about our hero Aidan (or Rob or Cuinn, he has many identities). When we meet Aidan he has been living life after life being reincarnated over again for the past two thousand years due to being cursed; to search out the one woman he loves and to kill her by his own hands in order to resolve the curse. At this point he is desperate to end his suffering and existence. After being cursed this present time is only the second time he has found his beloved in her reincarnated life.
For most of the book Aidan drove me nuts how he talked about how much he loves Kate but yet he is constantly lying to her, he is deceitful, wants to win her trust and love and work on his plan to kill her. I wanted to smack him a lot throughout the book! On the other hand, Kate is very smart and intelligent and is able to pick up and see through his lies and deceit. Although she is very much attracted to him, she is very skeptical of him and his explanations (which she should be!) and is very conflicted by him. Every time she called him out on a lie I wanted to just yell “You go, Kate!”
Through glimpses of Kate’s dreams/premonitions and Aidan’s memories, we get to see interactions in their previous lives together and how things occurred at those times. We learn about what he has to endure these past two thousand years that has changed him into a hardened man. While Kate is working to discover the truth to it all, Aidan is fighting to keep his resolve
to kill Kate, even though he has begun realize his feels for her are stronger than he felt for Ena, who she was in their 1st life together. With the help from someone in their past, they are given a glimmer of hope of having a future together.

As Laird, Callum Lennon feels he has always failed to protect his cousins. Callum's impulsiveness caused the death of his father and the experience has scarred not only his body, but his soul. From that point on, he made sure to always go with the more logical choice in every matter. When his younger cousin Angus finds clues that might help break the curse, Callum begrudgingly hires Phoebe Chilton to investigate. Callum doesn't like bringing outsiders into their family affairs. Their life would become fodder for the tabloids if anyone were to find out about the curse. It doesn't help that the instant he meets Dr. Chilton he's attracted. But, he doesn't really have a choice because she might be their last hope.
An expert in archeology, Phoebe has always been dwarfed by her parents' shadow. Their high standards had her in college by thirteen and earning a second PhD by twenty-two. But her career and her broken marriage have left her needing something more than just diplomas and degrees. She wants to prove that her interest in legends, especially Celtic legends, is as important as her parents' work. When the Lennon family contacts her, she sees the opportunity to win a massive research grant. With a long-time rival breathing down her back, she jumps at the Lennons' offer her, hoping it will ensure her the grant. But uncovering the Lennon family secrets, and her attraction to Callum, could prove more than she can handle.
Forces outside the family are determined to ensure that they fail. When an old enemy threatens both the well being of the clan and the fragile new love, Callum will have to choose between believing his mind or his heart.
Callum is a very pretty closed off, wealthy business man. He’s the head of his clan so he is filled with responsibility, very serious, and very protective of what is his. His family was cursed in the 1700s that has caused him and his 4 cousins to be immortal and they have been spent a long time trying to figure out how to break the curse. In comes Dr. Phoebe Chilton who has been hired by the family to help translate an old diary that may disclose how to reverse the curse. Phoebe is a very intelligent archeologist who entered college at age 13 and fluent in 5 languages.They are both instantly attracted to each other but both fight it so hard until they just can’t anymore.
This is the first of Melissa’s books that I’ve read and I really liked it. By the time I got to the 2nd half of the story, oh man that’s when the sh*t hit the fan! There’s deception, gun fights, kidnapping and the passion between Callum and Phoebe blows up. Now I might have missed something and I’m not completely sure exactly what the curse on Callum’s family entails or if it will become more clear in the following books. The details that is discovered for the cousins to break their curse sets up great for a series and I will be looking forward to the 2nd book about Callum’s cousin Angus.

Only one member of the team, Teague, my hero in FEVER, pushes too hard for answers. Since the fire and healing from his extremely severe injuries, Teague has the ability to raise his body temperature far beyond the normal level. He has learned this heat can both hurt and heal, but hasn’t been able to get the power completely under his control. In FEVER, Teague learns, among other things, how to channel his abilities from his inner strength, how to heal others from the inside out and how to accept the strange powers and use them for good even though they had come from a situation he’d always believed was his worst nightmare.
A man with a life sentence has nothing to lose. At least Teague doesn't, until his escape plan develops a fatal flaw: Alyssa. On the run from both the law and deadly undercover operatives, he can only give her lies, but every heated kiss tells him the fire between them could be just as devastating as the flames that changed him forever...
