About the Author:
Author Alexa Dare, with the oversight of the Jellicle Three (Jasmine, Lightning, and Stormy of feline persuasion), pens time travel and paranormal romance the way she likes to read them: sensual, adventurous, memorable. Along with spending time with her happily-ever-after alpha outdoorsman, Alexa cozies up at home—when not devoting her time to writing and bringing sexy romances to readers—with movies, popcorn, and triple chocolate cupcakes, not necessarily in that order.

I'm reviewing the two books as one because they blend seamlessly. The author has done a wonderful job of taking the ancient warrior vampires from their making to their last quest for the sacred relics they must find before they can be free of the spell Merlin set on them...and maybe be human again.
There are thirteen of them. And each of them has a great name worthy of an ancient warrior who's survived down through the ages. So, I'm taking a chance here and thinking that each one will have his own story? This first one is about Ryderholt Judson or Ryder. He's the captain of their band, which for now is traveling as a motorcycle club. It seems fitting. They're now in East Tennessee getting ready for each of them to go off on their individual quests for the relics. And fated mates. Ryder's quest is focused in this area.
Also in this area is a small group of young women with some unusual talents. Olivia Trudeau is their self-proclaimed leader. But this is Jess Willowbrook's story. Jess is a touch-healer. She's also a traveling nurse. She hides her talent within her job, but the locals still call her a witch. Some in a nice way, others not so nice. It's the not-so-nice ones giving the gals trouble right now and Ryder is willing to help deal with the trouble if Jess can keep him healed up long enough to fight. He has his own evils dogging his trail, too.
Ryder finds his relic and Jess gets him healed up. The women find a secret in their mountain worth keeping secret. The local bad guys get taken down, but the magical bad guys take off to bother the other knights. I'm sure we'll meet them in other books. I suspect some of the knights will end up coming back to East Tennessee since we still have five other witches as yet unclaimed. And Ryder and Jess will be using this as their home base.
The writing was very good and the sex was well-done. There was violence, but it was fitting for the book. My one comment is that there are no down times, no normal times. They are always on full alert, charging full ahead dealing with trouble. It would be nice to hear at least one normal conversation.
