Charlene Teglia


Dangerous Lover

Author: Charlene Teglia

Series Connection: Take Me, Lover

ISBN: 978-1-60504-965-6

Genre: Erotic Romance


5 Hearts


In the fourth book of Charlene Teglia's Take Me, Lover series readers meet waitress and soon to be CPA, Cherry. She's just been out on yet another date with Mr. Wrong and is wondering when she will stop getting her self mixed up with the wrong type of man. Making her decision to try to start dating Mr. Right, Cherry meets a nice normal fireman.


But does she really? Joe is everything she is looking for in Mr. Right. A dependable hero. The only problem is when he picks her up for their first date on his Harley and the tattoo on his arm point to the oh so Mr. Wrong. What can she do? Joe is so hot she can't think of letting him go just yet. Taking a chance Cherry hopes that Joe turns out to be the Mr. Right she's been looking for.


It isn't necessary to read the other books in this series to read this one. Each book is an individual story.  As a straight erotic romance, this book has it all. The author does attempt to write in a little more of a story line, but runs out of time before she can tell the story. This is nice novella that would be made even better if it were possible to here more of the back story.



The heat is onÉ


Just a few more weeks and accounting student Cherry Harris will officially get her master's degree and kiss her pink waitress uniform goodbye.


There's something else she'd like to make official, too—no more bad boys. Tired of getting burned, she's determined that from now on, it's nice guys or nothing. What could be nicer than a firefighter rescuing a kitten from a tree?


Joe Deluca looks like the perfect way to break her romantic destructive pattern.


Perfect melts like ice cream on a hot day when Cherry finds out that when Joe's not in uniform, he rides a motorcycle and wears a leather jacket over his tattoos. Is he a nice guy, a bad boy, or the man who's just right for her?


The five-alarm passion Joe inspires proves an irresistible temptation, but Cherry's determined to guard her heart if not her body. Until a firebug leads them both into danger and Cherry is forced to admit her heart's been in jeopardy from the beginningÉ


Warning: Contains a sexy firefighter and burning-up-the-sheets sex scenes that use ALL the words. May induce Harley-Davidson motorcycle fantasies you should not attempt on a moving vehicle.


Claimed By The Wolf

Claimed by the Wolf is a well written novel with an exceptional subplot. I say subplot because the main plot was definitely erotica. The subplot was the story line that took place around the very hot sex scenes.


If you've spent anytime in a bookstore lately in the romance sections you'll find a great variety of genres. Many of the books use more than one genre. For instance it isn't unlikely to find a Christian crime drama on the same shelf as a paranormal vampire story. It also isn't unlikely to find a erotica paranormal book such as Claimed by the Wolf on the same shelf as the others.


When at the bookstore last week, I picked up Claimed by the Wolf and the woman next to me said, "Watch out for that one. It isn't a romance. It is basic porn."


Of course it was right there on the back of the book that Sybil must "share" herself with the five warriors, but I guess that didn't make it clear that she would be having sex with five different me. As a trolled around the net I found many people with similar complaints. Yes this book is very erotic and those who don't like these kinds of books will not enjoy this story line, but that is the beauty of the publishing industry these days there is something for everyone.


For those who do enjoy erotic romance with a paranormal shift, this one is well written and has the potential for a great story. Erotic fans will not be bored with the varied use of erotic bedroom, or cave floor etc., scenes. Each lover that Sybil takes has their own style that is for sure. Readers will find everything including BDSM.


On the other hand, the subplot for the story was more interesting to me. Sybil is a witch who hasn't been trained in her art although she is very strong. She stumbles upon a magic book at an estate sale and before she knows it, she is thrown into a world where she finds all sorts of beings she has never heard of before. Including a sex werewolf that she can't help but fall in love with despite how he tries everything to keep her at arms length. There is also a roguish dragon, a dominant elf, brooding vampire and demon in the mix.


My main complaint with this book is that although I realized the main part of the story was the sex, when I was ready for the background story to come together it moved to quickly. I wanted more action and more suspense. So I can't make this a 5-Heart review, but I give the author good measure for hot sex scenes, great alpha characters and witch, as well as an interesting story line.



They guard humanity against supernatural threats from the five gateways into the world. The Shadow Guardians: a vampire, a werewolf, a demon, a dragon and a fae are united in brotherhood - and war. Shadow Guardian Kenrick is an alpha werewolf forever in his prime. When Sybil, a beautiful apprentice witch, unknowingly opens a realm to the Otherworld, there is a sudden influx of demons - and it's up to Kenrick to help her stop them. Soon their passion flares and Kenrick desires Sybil as his mate. But to form their union, Sybil faces the ultimate test: She must bind herself to the Shadow Guardians by sharing herself with all five warriors.

5 Hearts


Quick novella featuring a divorced mother, Anne, who finds out that a man she thought of as a good friend has just been biding his time until he makes his move on her.


Pete knows that Anne is still recovering from recently giving birth and divorcing her no good husband. He's been waiting in the wings, but now it is time to let her know how he feels.


Anne has a lot of things on her mind right now. She has her baby and an ex-husband who is suddenly hanging around and to top it all off the man she considered a good friend is suddenly showing her he wants something more than just friendship. . .and that's only the beginning.


This is one of those sexy quick romp books. A nice quick read with lots of fun loving sexy scenes.



When Anne Parker yanks open her front door, she's armed and ready to aim cold fury at her ex. Instead, she finds herself staring up at Pete Crenshaw, a man as disarming as he is dangerous to her battered defenses. A man whose touch sends her I-remember-sex hormones soaring into the red zone.


Those hormones sure have picked a hell of a time to surge, though—with New Year's around the corner and the ex suddenly making noises about worming his way back into her life.

Pete's been biding his time. More accurately, lying in wait for precisely the right moment to take their relationship from friends to lovers. He's aware of Anne's trust issues, but it's time to make a move before she has a chance to do what she does best—overthink it.


Her ex isn't just back to make another play, though. He's after secrets Pete and his partner hide under the cover of their garage business. Pete finds his heart caught between Anne's safety and the secrets he's sworn to keep—unless he can find a way to preserve bothÉ

About the author from her Website:

I'm Charlene Teglia, an award-winning author of 20 steamy romances for St. Martin's, Pocket, Samhain and Ellora's Cave. When I'm not writing, I homeschool my hellions, open and close doors for cats, hike, and go geocaching. Sometimes I even clean the house.


My View:

At first glance when reading the back cover one might think this book is all about erotic romance and unfortunately some might think it has no substance. That could not be further from the truth. Sure the author has the character have sex with 11 different guys, but more than that this book has an outstanding plot and an exciting read. I loved the heroine, Chandra. She had true grit and intelligence to match. She never backed down to any challenge put in front of her no matter how strange her life had become in just a few days.


Maybe for some having so many lovers in one book might be a bit too much. The sex scenes however a truly hot for those who like these kinds of books and it falls to form. Nothing to out there like in some erotic books.


I say bravo to this author, and I can't wait to read another book by her.
