Pack Rules by Julia Talbot and BA Tortuga - 5 Nymphs
Mixed mating can be difficult for a couple, which is the case of werewolf Donovan and vampire Mik. After being unhappy and apart for five years, Donovan decided it was time to throw out the traditional pack rules in favor of reuniting with his true mate Mik.   

Downward Dog by Julia Talbot and BA Tortuga - 5 Nymphs
Werewolf Rian is an excellent yoga instructor, however he is not so good with being a wolf. But there is hope for Rian when he meets his mate, werewolf Gilead, who is a superb teacher in the arts of werewolf courtship and love.

The Bear Facts by Sean Michael - 4.5 Nymphs   
Polar bear Nuk was not in search of a mate when he arrived at the resort for a month long vacation, nevertheless, shortly after meeting sorcerer-in-training Al, Nuk soon realized they were truly bear mates.

Jonny’s Epilogue by Julia Talbot - 4.5 Nymphs
Vampire and owner Jonny is brought up to date on the Cereus Resort staff and opening by werewolf Duke, who is the manager. Jonny is so pleased with this project, he is now thinking of expanding.     

Opening is the second book in the Cereus Series.  Each segment features a different couple and is a continuation of the overall story beginning with the first book Cereus: Building. The plot is exceedingly amusing, highlighting the characters at play in their animal forms. The theme is all about romancing your mate including scorching displays of intimacy. The Bear Facts is the only segment with BDSM. Otherwise, I found Opening thoroughly enjoyable.
