From New York Times Bestsellers, Alexandra Ivy and Laura Wright, the heat of the bayou is back with Rage/Killian in an all-new dual ‘tail’. Enter the Wildlands, where a new, volatile danger threatens the sizzling hot Pantera.

Rage might be an aggressive Hunter by nature, but the gorgeous male has never had a problem charming the females. All except Lucie Gaudet. Of course, the lovely Geek is a born troublemaker, and it was no surprise to Rage when she was kicked out of the Wildlands.

But now the Pantera need a first-class hacker to stop the potential destruction of their people. And it’s up to Rage to convince Lucie to help. Can the two forget the past—and their sizzling attraction—to save the Pantera?

Gorgeous, brutal, aggressive, and human, Killian O’Roarke wants only two things: to get rid of the Pantera DNA he’s been infected with, and get back to the field. But the decorated Army Ranger never bargained on meeting the woman—the female—of his dreams on his mission to the Wildlands.

Rosalie lost her mate to a human, and now the Hunter despises them all. In fact, she thinks they’re good for only one thing: barbeque. But this one she’s guarding is testing her beliefs. He is proud and kind, and also knows the pain of loss. But in a time of war between their species, isn’t any chance of love destined for destruction?

Quick & Dirty: Dark and sexy paranormal romance stories that are set in a tough and terrible world. These stories are short and to the point.

Excerpt: Yes (Rage)

The Review:

Rage/Killian are the 17th and 18th books in the paranormal romance Bayou Heat series. Because of the novella length of these stories, they get straight to the story and the intense desires that the characters have for each other. The story revolves around a group of Puma shifters, they call themselves, Pantera. This is the first story that I have read in this series and while I didn’t get lost with what was going on, I would love to go back and find out how they got to where they are now in the story.

These stories feature strong female characters and put them up against some equally strong willed men. The events of these stories take place in a very short amount of time so the romance heats up really quick. Rage/Killian and the cast of characters intrigued me enough that I would really like to go and check out the rest of this series.


Pantera blood is up for auction and it is up to Rage to find the Geek hacker Lucie in order to stop it. The blood is being used to create super-soldiers and even being used for genetic testing. It cannot be allowed to get into the wrong hands. Lucie no longer lives in the Bayou because her skills were seen as abhorrent to the Pantera leaders. Thankfully Rage is given a big clue where to find her so it doesn’t take him too long. He just has to talk her into helping the Pantera who turned her away.

Lucie and Rage were my favorite couple in this compilation. I really liked them both. Rage is a tough Hunter, he wants to protect and help his group. He also doesn’t understand how he developed such a reputation as a ladies man. Rage remembers Lucie as kind of a bully who kept tormenting him as they grew up.

Lucie has loved Rage since she was a little girl. Life was extremely harsh for her and she often looked like she was rabid. Now that she has moved away, she has cleaned up and developed a huge reputation as a hacker. Lucie is tough as nails and she certainly doesn’t rely on anyone but herself. Tormenting Rage was Lucie’s way of coping with her crush.


Killian O’Rourke shows up in the bayou seeking help from the leader of the Pantera, Raphael. Killian is a human that suspects he has had some genetic testing done on him against his will and he wants whatever was done to him removed. He just wants to be normal again.

Rosalie is the Hunter that finds Killian and all she wants is his blood because he is a filthy human. A human like the one who took her mate from her. As a Hunter, Rosalie is super strong and super aggressive. All she can think about is blood and revenge.

What I liked about this story is the fact that they both had to go through some really uncomfortable stuff and through that they both became better people because of it.
