Cereus (Cereus, #1)

What happens when a besieged and rather small dragon comes to a vampire and says, "I need your help"? Or when that vampire comes to a werewolf and says, "I have a job for you"? The vampire goes and builds a resort for things that go bump in the night, deep in the Cascade Mountains. Riding the wave of Julia Talbot's Bloodrose series, the multi-author Cereus: The Building features paranormal romance Sean Michael, Julia Talbot and BA Tortuga.

Julia Talbot's It's Elemental features construction contractor Chayton, a werewolf who thinks demon decorator Kenny is a little fussy, and a lot hot. They argue about everything from feng shui to sex. Will they be able to resolve their differences?

The Third Course, by BA Tortuga, tells the story of Marco and Stephan, werecats, pridemates, and chefs who meet their match in head-bartender, Faelan, who just happens to be a growly, sexy Top.

Finally, Sean Michael's Smoke and Gold follows the head dominant of the club, Zee, who's dealing with trying to get his playrooms just so and trying to figure out maddening dragon, Daniel, at the same time. Who can resist loving a dragon?

    This must be one of the most fun, interesting, and hot books of intermixing paranormals and supernatural beings around. The idea of building a resort, or a "kinky little getaway" in the words of the instigator, for the use of different species at the same time, is bound to lead to some...

    I had never read the bloodrose series before this book but it drew me right in. All three authors give great stories and they blend together so well that it makes for a really enjoyable read. I later went back and purchased the first two bloodrose books by julia talbot and while they d...

    This follows Julia Talbot's Bloodrose series. You don't have to read Bloodrose series first but it's an entertaining series too so I suggest it. This book is a compilation between 3 great authors so I really enjoyed it. There are 3 books in this series so far and another one in the wor...

    I wasn't really sure what the book was about because I got it 2 years ago at a Romance Times convention. It wasn't what I expected but it wasn't bad. I thought it was a very loose plot so I couldn't get invested. I finished but don't think I'd read another one by these authors. ...

    The stories in most anthologies are barely held together by a common thread. Sometimes I wonder what they have in common at all. But this one is different in that all three novellas take place inside the broader construct of a larger story. The premise is pulled from Julia Talbot's Blo...

    I do like these types of "anthologies". We get to know all the people and see them from different aspects. But then we get to REALLY know a couple, a story at a time. Love the kitties and Faelon is so good for them. And dragons are my favorite "paranormal" or magic creature and Daniel ...
