    Lia's EBUZZ: Dreams of the Oasis I
    Dreams of the Oasis I

    with stories by

    Liddy Midnight, Allyson James, Paige Cuccaro, Nicole Austin, Myla Jackson and Jory Strong


    summary
    Call Me Barbarian By Liddy Midnight
    Princess Cedilla enjoys unprecedented privilege in a society where women are neither seen nor heard. Her life changes when twin barbarian gladiators enter the arena. One glance and Cedilla is irrevocably bound to these Southern warriors-and revealed as half-barbarian herself.

    Whether in the arena or the bedchamber, Asterix and Apostroph live for the moment-until they find their destined mate. When Cedilla is banished by the Emperor, they devote themselves to satisfying her wildest desires.

    But the Empire needs Cedilla, and the Empire is intolerant of barbarians...


    Dragonmagic By Allyson James
    It's hell to be a dragon enslaved. Arys, a powerful silver dragon in human form, is bound to a witch who uses his magic and his body to pleasure her in every way imaginable. When Arys spies Naida, a young woman just coming into her powers, watching Arys performing erotic acts with the witch, he knows that Naida is the key to his freedom.

    First he must convince Naida she's his true mate and that the power of their sexual play, and her love, will release him.


    Fallen For You By Paige Cuccaro
    For ten thousand years, Zade's warrior mentality kept him focused on the Watcher's mission-rid the world of the Oscurita fallen angels. And then the witch Isabel came under his care.

    The Oscurita will be coming to posses her or kill her, drawn by her burgeoning powers. Isabel is a temptation they can't ignore, but neither can Zade.

    If he succumbs to his feelings, Zade's frozen soul could destroy Isabel. If he resists, his unsatisfied need may cost him everything. To save all he holds dear, Zade must trust that Isabel was born for him, and he has fallen for her.


    Spontaneous Combustion By Nicole Austin
    Dr. Madailein Flannagan's carnal desires are blazing deep inside, and her best friend Jake Cruise is just the man to fan the flames. But the sexy, bad boy firefighter goes for equally bad girls, and Maddy's afraid she's just not his type. Although lately she has been fantasizing about Jake and a few of his friends...

    Jake thinks that Maddy is way out of his league, but he knows that she can't refuse a challenge. And he's come up with an irresistible dare guaranteed to send her body up in flames, gain her submission, and maybe even win her heart.


    The Ambassador's Widow By Myla Jackson
    Chameleon Agent Andre Batello is sent on assignment to "fill in" for an ambassador who died the night before a long-negotiated peace treaty is due to be signed. As part of a special team of individuals with the ability to assume another's identity based on a single strand of DNA, Andre's mission is to infiltrate the ambassador's life and sign that treaty. The one major glitch in his mission: he didn't plan on falling in love with the ambassador's widow.


    The Joining By Jory Strong
    On the water world of Qumaar, Siria Chaton is a prisoner of her talent. With her credits dwindling, she has few options and little hope for a future. Until Jett and Mozaiic du'Zehren enter her life.

    After five years of being a couple, Jett and Mozaiic have gained permission to add a third, a woman, to their joining. They can't believe their good fortune when the woman assigned to them is a water diviner. Now if only she'll accept them as lovers and come home with them to the forbidden desert planet of Adjara.

    Lia's Ebuzz
    I enjoy reading the EC Cavemen installments, because they give me an opportunity to try a variety of authors. In this case, all six authors were new to me.

    Allyson James' "Dragonmagic" was my favorite of the six stories--I thought James did a wonderful job of world-building and romance. I like the way she transformed the traditional save the woman from the dragon tale into a unique maiden saves enslaved dragon story.

    I also enjoyed "The Ambassador's Widow" by Myla Jackson, a story about a man who must pretend to be an ambassador so he can ensure the success of certain negotiations. Watching Andre try to resist made me smile, although I wished the story had been a little bit longer.

    Three of the stories included a menage, and I admit I'm not the best reader for this kind of story. "Call Me Barbarian" by Liddy Midnight was the one I enjoyed most. Midnight creates an intriguing world, and I loved how the heroine ended up in a position of power at the end.

    I enjoyed the book overall and plan to check out other books by James and Jackson to see if they interest me.


    An excerpt can be found here, as well as check out the authors site for more info. You can buy the ebook here and here in print. Thanks for the Ebuzz Lia!

    2. Gah. I thought so, too. But I also keep my eyes averted from all the Ellora's Cavemen, so I never take a close look anymore. They just don't do it for me, crotch-grabbing or no.

      And Yay! for Lia! I have it, and am now just waiting for a chance to read it.

    3. I met this caveman at RT and I think he bats for the other side. He's a bit scary looking too.
