Hot and Heavy is part of her Viking Series II. This series mixes time travel, vikings and Navy SEALS.

This story features Madrene Olgadottir, Ragnor’s sister whom had been left behind when her family traveled to the future (The Very Virile Viking and Wet & Wild) without her. If you have read Wet & Wild you will remember Rangnor’s brother-in-law Ian MacLean (also his commanding office).

Wet & Wild is part of her Viking Series II. This series mixes time travel, vikings and Navy SEALS. Is there anything better than Viking time travelers turned Navy SEAL? I guess it could get better if one of the time traveling, navy seal vikings would get turned into a vampire. But I digress…

The Thrall concept is yet another variation of the “vampire” theme. Instead of being infected by a “virus” the Thrall is a parasite which takes over the body and mind of its host for a few years. Eventually the body wears down and a new host is selected to receive the next queens eggs. Additionally the Thrall lives in a hive culture with a single reproductive queen leader and her drones the “hosts”. Humans all considered the “Prey” that feeds the hive the blood they need. Humans can also be Herd if they voluntarily feed the Hosts.

This story “sort of” focuses on the relationship between Phury and Cormia. At the end of the last book, Phury had volunteered to take the place as the Chosen’s Primale in Vichous’s stead. The Primales role is to serve as head male to a harem of 40 chosen. A glorified stud and sperm factory whose sole purpose is donate his half of a generation of new Brothers. I thought Ward would make this role more interesting given that he is abstinent and all, but nay it didn’t really play much into the story..

I wish I could say I liked the book, but it jumped along too fast with no build up.

Jane Drysdale is driving along in her car with tubs of erotic toys from her second job of “adult toy parties” when she runs over a rabbit and is suddenly transported to another land. She mets up with Charle who is a straight laced and sort of interesting character and is swept up in one adventure to another.
