Choice (Origins, #1)
It was chance, guided by the hands of a god that brought them together. Would their choice bind them, or be the cause of their destruction?
Natasha never believed that the fairy tales she read to her niece about supernatural beings were real. She read them to give her niece hope. She, herself, had all but given up on love, until the fateful day when she went scuba diving in the Bermuda Triangle and was thrust into a culture of people that’d change her life forever.
On a legendary island, she meets Raif, the shape shifting Warrior Chief of Atlantis, and her soul mate. Their attraction is instant, powerful and foretold by an oracle, centuries before Natasha was born. She struggles with the attraction, unwilling to believe in soul mates, and fraught with the desire to return to the surface where she can continue her monotonous life, free from the intense and confusing emotions she feels around Raif.
All his life, Raif’s searched for her. To have finally found her after so long, is a dream come true. Trouble is; this dream’s more of a nightmare that he can’t seem to find a way out of than the haven it’s supposed to be. His people have become complacent, and her arrival is the beginning of fulfilling an ancient prophesy; a prophesy that not too many are willing to see fulfilled, least of all, his king.
Together they’re faced with the most difficult choice of their lives: doom a hidden, mythical culture to eternal segregation, or sacrifice their love to reunite Atlantis with the rest of the world?
Changed (Origins, #2)
Vampires, Shape shifters, Necromancers, Supernatural Hunters – I sat in awe listening as Stephan, leader of the Vampire clans, told me about their culture. I’m glad he waited until now to tell me. I didn’t believe the unbelievable was possible until I was mated to a powerful Shape shifter three months ago. After that, all sorts of crazy things started happening to me.
I’ve got to say, I’m a believer now.
Created (Origins, 3)
Four hundred years ago, my life was destroyed. Everything I knew and loved was obliterated as my powers surged for the first time. My family, my home and my life were taken from me, in flames.
I was transformed against my will into an abomination, a dizzien of hell to forever walk the night, a vampire. For four hundred years I’ve walked this earth, the painful screams of my family a constant reminder of the monster I am.
I’ve never known love, or the gentle touch of a man. The only respite from the agony of my existence was the three hundred years spent with Stephan. Although, once She came, I was again tossed aside, shunned and ignored.
I’m done with being condemned, suffering for the consequences of something I didn’t know I was capable of. It’s time I lived.
My name is Victoria, and this is my story.
Consumed (Origins, #4)
For three hundred years I lived with Stephan; learning about the culture forced upon me, growing as a pyrokinetic vampire and healing from Mneseus’ century of abuse. Before Stephan’s guidance and direction, I was an empty shell. His kindness, compassion and just beliefs showed me that there could be a life without pain. Over time, I learned to love again. Foolishly I believed Stephan and I would be partners, comfortable and content without half-life for eternity.
Then She came and ruined it.
I left them to find a place I could spend the rest of my lonely years. Mneseus’ last words reverberated through the centuries, reminding me, I wasn’t worthy of love. It would be now, when I finally resigned myself to an eternity of solitude, that I would find it.
Logan was everything I’d ever needed in a man, with one fatal flaw. Could I look past that, risking my heart, my future and his very life to be with him? Was love truly enough?
Envisioned (Origins, #4)
As leader of the wolves, Auto holds immense power and responsibility. He’s Stephan’s second, and his oldest friend. In truth he’d give it all up to find his mate, his Alma Xemelga.
Sage was plagued with nightmares of a wolf hunting in the Michigan forests. Drawn to the wolf for reasons she can’t understand, she never spoke of these dreams… until she met him.
With Auto’s secret in her hands, he wonders, can she accept him for what he truly is? And when he learns of her powerful, hidden talents, will she be able to accept herself?
Convergence (Origins, #5)
There is no information at this time.
The Lascivious Transformation (Origins, #6)
Betrayed by her fiancé to the werewolves, transformed into one against her will and untrained by her maker, Kiera was then turned over to a faction of hunters that worked with the wolves to find a cure for Shifting. Unwilling, Kiera was subjected to an erotic and torturous retransformation into her human state. After all that, would she become human again? Would she ever find a man worthy of her love?

When she’s not out risking her neck on the back of her motorcycle, she enjoys the more calm activities of reading, gardening, and spending time with her friends and family.

I am going to rate this series as a whole
When I first started reading, it did take me a while to get into the story..I think because I knew I had five more books to read!! LOL. But, once I sat down, got my bearings, and dove into Choice, I couldn’t stop!! I am pretty sure I read Choice and Changed in one sitting!
I loved the world building in this series. Jean took a romance and intertwined and ran it parallel with greek mythology, vampires, and the city of Atlantis. How original!! I very much enjoyed the character building. I thought that there was more narration than dialogue, but that’s ok. These books didn’t need a lot of dialogue because I liked the story. I almost liked the story more than I liked anything else!! Which is weird bcause I HATED history!!
As the series continues, Jean gets away from world building and more into character building by books 3 and 4. This is where the romance story really starts to heat up! Don’t get me wrong; I feel like romance novel doesn’t even come close to explaining any book in this series. I would label it more paranormal erotica if I could put a name on it. But, there is a HUGE love triangle going on by books 3 and 4 that really captures the spotlight. But, things begin to turn around when the characters begin to find their place.
As the books go into #4 and #5, I felt like something was missing. I cannot quite put my finger on it, but I felt a little lost. Everything up to this point was so strong and I felt almost like the author got bored. But, that doesn’t mean the books were bad. Because they weren’t. The characters were still strong and the building them up was still there. So, I still felt connected to it. I just felt like there was a lot of room for them to grow and I would have taken them different ways.
There are a lot of twists and turns a story plots and re-plots. This series will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat; wet, with a tissue in your hand!! Fabulously written, seamlessly executed!!
