Taboo Kisses by Gracen Miller BLOG TOUR


This book is for readers 18 and over, contains explicit sexual content, including, but not limited to, m/m, m/f/m, double penetration, anal play, sex-toy play, sex-fruit play, shifter sex, voyeurism, forced seduction, and anything else I might've forgotten to list!


Taboo Kisses…where desires and inhibitions collide.

Dispatched to the mortal realm from Atlantis to seek the source of a brewing rebellion, Sameya is thrown for a tailspin when she discovers her fated mates. As a siren her songs entice mankind and immortals alike to their death. She’s stunned to be seduced by a taboo union with a tiger-shifter and vampyr. Mating the pair could complicate everything and threaten her freedom. Fueled by her duty to Atlantis, Sameya rejects fate’s wisdom and refutes her attraction to the men.

Taboo Kisses…when the forbidden becomes irresistible.

Gabriel and Maximus have been searching for their mate for centuries. Neither expected the siren they were hired to find would deliver more than a lucrative payday. Frustrated by Sameya’s aversion to their mating, the men anticipate an empty future if she refuses to complete their union. In a rash move Maximus seizes Sameya and holds her captive.

Taboo Kisses…when the siren is serenaded with temptation.

Trapped and at their mercy, Sameya is bombarded with pleasure. Can her mates convince her to take a gamble on their taboo union? With danger lurking in the shadows, will the choice be taken from her?


Empress’ delights, she disliked the jumbled way he made her feel. Confused one moment and aroused the next. “What is your name?”

“Call me mate.”

Her breathing died, then escalated. She forced a lame-ass sounding laugh past her lips. “Don’t get cocky. I’m not into leeches.”

“Don’t disqualify me from the running.” He sidled closer, aligning his body against hers once more, but maintaining space with his palms on the mausoleum on either side of her head. “Not when Gabriel and I haven’t had the gratification of making you come…yet.”

She gasped, her eyes rounding at his foregone conclusion. “Better men than you have tried.”

“None of them were your mates.”

“Wait! Mates? As in plural?” She flattened her hands against his chest to push him away, but forgot to add pressure. The hard contours of his body fascinated her more than was practical. “That’s…insane.” But gods the idea fascinated her. “Sirens don’t partner outside our race and we certainly don’t have more than one partner.”

Sameya didn’t realize she spoke the thought aloud until the vampyr thrust both his hands into her hair. After he had her anchored into position, he shifted closer, widening his stride to fit her pelvis between his legs. His hard-on nestled against her abdomen as he tilted her head back by her hair. 

“No more insane than a vampyr mating a shifter.” His mouth landed on hers. He nibbled on her bottom lip, licked the corners and crease. Distracted by the exhilarating sensations, she was unprepared to counteract his move when he placed the pad of his thumb against her chin and tugged, parting her lips for his tongue to thrust inside. 

My Review:

*I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*

I stumbled across the tour sign up for Taboo Kisses, and on a whim, signed up for a review because I liked the cover—without reading the summary. That means I didn’t really know what I was in for.

To my great surprise it turned out to be a paranormal tale; even better, though, it was one with vampyrs. (How cool is Miller’s spelling?!) A shifter and a siren round out the threesome that make our main ‘couple.’

Gabriel and Maximus are an already established pair when the story opens. While they've claimed each other as mates (yes, folks, there is m/m loving in this *fans self*) they've held off holding an official mating ceremony because they know there is a third to their union—a female to help them procreate and complete them.

When their paths finally cross with Sameya’s, no one is more surprised than her. The boys have had years to come to terms with their interspecies mating; however, Sameya never expected to mate, let alone mate outside of her race. She’s a timerelic and a siren, and as such as spent thousands of years protecting the Empress of Atlantis. Independence and being in charge of security are what she knows.

Miller takes the reader on a fast-paced, XXX adventure filled with court conspiracies and learning to love. In my opinion, there is also an underlying moral to the story: you can't choose who or even what you love. True love and emotions aren't governed by gender or race.

If you like the Anita Blake series, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy Taboo Kisses. Just be sure to heed the warnings the author so diligently lists so that you aren’t caught off guard by how kinky and sizzling the content is.
