Sexy Suit, Blade was held captive and abused for decades. Benson Enterprises was desperate to use his superior blood to create super soldiers. But when he’s finally rescued, he can’t return to the Wildlands with the other prisoners. Not without the female he was forced to watch being impregnated. The female who has gone missing.

Beautiful and broken, Valli just wants to run away and never look back. But with the shocking news of her pregnancy fresh in her mind, she wonders if that’s even possible. Told by her captors that one of the caged animals assaulted her, she knows she must do everything in her power to keep her unborn child safe. But when a glorious male tracks her down and claims her and her baby as his own, will she have the strength to walk away?

This series has turned out to be so good. Each book I read I like more then the next. I think a lot of that has to do with the two authors. I really love both of their writing which makes it so much more easier to enjoy this series that they've written together. 

The authors have done a wonderful job of writing this series seamlessly. If you don't look at the name on each of the books you don't know who wrote what. They have been careful to keep all the information consistent. 

A real plus with a series with tow authors.

I really loved Blade. He has gone through so much and he's not done yet. His reunion with Valli don't go the way he thought it would. What she reveals to him shocks him. 

He never hurt her but she doesn't believe...yet!

You'll find Valli to be very confused about what happened to her. She wrestles with the fact that she feels Blade has a attacked her, yet she's attracted to him. 

By the end of the book all becomes clear but that doesn't mean that there isn't a few more hurts to come their way. 

Being a novella I was happen to feel like I got a full story. Sometimes that doesn't always happen with them. When you finish the story you'll know that Blade and Valli got their HEA! 

I would really read this series in order. I know, that seems like a lot of books but believe me you'll enjoy them. I just feel if you start with this one you might be lost due to the story thread that runs through them all. All the ones I've read are quick easy to read stories that won't take you long to finish. 

If you've read Blade or any other story by Alexandra Ivy or Laura Wright I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

Alexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Alexandra: “I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on. Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold! I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes. 

Laura Wright is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Laura: “Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.”
