My name is Arizona Smoke, and I'm the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and … uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements. Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I'm an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.

I tried to finish this book in the hopes it would get better, sadly with 5hrs to go I had to stop.
This book has very little story line; it's the equivalent of a very bad porn movie.
I enjoy a good book with sex scenes, even with multiple partners.
The issue is 5hrs into the book and we still have no real storyline, just lots of bad plumber puns and sex scenes.

Raphael is an Angel of Order, sort of. His affinity for chaos makes him the perfect choice to investigate the trespass in Alaska of supernatural creatures not seen in eons. But the locals in Juneau have been keeping a secret for thousands of years -the disgraceful offspring of an angel and a demon. Raphael should execute her on the spot, or at the very least throw her into Hel with the rest of her kind, but Raphael has never been one to follow the rules.

Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special.

I love Nalini Singh and have read all of the Psy-Changeling & Archangel books.
I expected this book to be of the same caliber, sadly it's not.
It is a cute love story with lots of vanilla sex, no true meat to it.
I like mysteries, science-fiction, excitement with romance thrown in.
This book has only romance, it reminds me of a low key version on Fifty Shades of Grey.
