Recent Release Review! Kiss of Fury (Dragonfire #2) Deborah Cooke!

Kiss of Fury - Deborah Cooke

 

 

One act of passion can save the world...

 

Scientist Alexandra Madison was on the verge of unveiling an invention that would change the world. Then her partner was murdered, their lab was burned, and their prototype was destroyed. While Alex is in the hospital recovering from burns suffered in the fire, recurring dragon-haunted nightmares threaten to land her in the psychiatric ward, but she knows she has to escape to her lab to rebuild the Green Machine.

 

Handsome, daring, and impulsive, Donovan Shea is more than willing to do his part in the Pyr/Slayer war. Assigned to protect Alex, Donovan is shocked when her presence ignites his firestorm. He has no desire for a destined mate, but Alex's intelligence and determination inspire him to join the fight to save her invention. With the Slayers closing in, Donovan knows he would surrender his life for Alex...and lose his heart to possess her.

 

 

‘Fast and the Fury’est’ is the best words to describe the second book in the Dragonfire series – Kiss of Fury by Deborah Cooke, especially when one act of passion can save the world.

 

Alexandra Madison is a scientist on the verge of unveiling a huge world changing invention when her lab is burned down and her partner murdered. Donovan Shea is a sexy, daring Pyr who is a bit impulsive and he has been assigned to protect Alex, but he is shocked when the firestorm that he wants no part is ignited in a blaze of furious sparks. Alex and Donovan could set the world on fire with the sizzling chemistry that burns between them but these two strong, bold characters have a bit of a problem in the actual romance part due to stubbornness and a bit of a lack of communication, especially since Alex isn’t interested in anything that has to do with her nightmares…namely dragons, which keeps this relationship on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, near misses and passionate encounters which in turn keeps readers on pins and needles.

 

Thrilling action, explosive battles, and sheer determination of all the characters involved keeps readers glued to the pages of this fast paced story that rivals the fastest and the furiousest of the all of the movies (which all on favorites list). Speaking of movies, I do believe the Dragonfire series would be on awesome on the big screen, hmmm… Oops! back to what I saying, there is lots of intrigue with twists and turns to ensure that readers never have a dull moment and that not counting the words of the Wyvern, Sophie that adds the mysterious and fascinating world of the Pyr/Slayer war and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

Romance that is destiny laced, fantasy infused, and dressed in a little night magic.

 

If he leaves, he can never come back. But is he dumb enough to get in his car and drive away anyhow?

 

New York Times bestselling author, Victoria Danann, begins a sizzling new series about an enclave of modern day witches who are sexy, philanthropic and living in the Texas Hill Country. They're selfless to a fault when it comes to generosity, but when it comes to the men they choose for themselves, they don't settle for anything less than the best.

 

"Enchanted from the very first page. I couldn't put it down!" - Night Owl Reviews 5* TOP PICK

 

While waiting for what would probably be his last acting audition ever, the guy standing in line behind Willem gave him a card with a phone number on it and said, "You're a good looking guy. If you're definitely quitting, try the witches."

 

Willem took the card for the sake of being polite. He planned to throw it away, but didn't. Crazy as it sounded, it seemed like the card was bugging him. It even kept him awake when he put it in the refrigerator.

 

He called the number, entered the competition and won. Winning meant getting everything he'd never even dared to dream about.

 

Get your copy TODAY and find out why readers are saying Willem is sexy, delightfully fun, witty and witching with humor, magic, and lots of romance!

Review! Summer Rhythm - A Night's Embrace Spin-off by Brandy L. Rivers!

Summer Rhythm: A spin-off of Nights Embrace - Brandy L Rivers, Tara Shaner

 

 

Rhythms tend to repeat…


One girl has always captivated Doug Walsh. Every time he thinks she’ll let him in, she proves him wrong. Years later, he spots her in the crowd. He’ll do everything in his power to keep his fool heart intact.


After dismissing her parent’s expectations, Chloe has taken her life by the reins. When she sees the boy who captured her heart, but her mother forbade, she’s drawn back in. This time, she wants to make up for her past mistakes.


Can she change their summer rhythm? Or has she trampled his heart too many times?

 

 

Doug, the Night’s Embrace band member in the Others of Seattle series get his story in Summer Rhythm and what a delightfully sweet read it is.

 

Doug Walsh has always been captivated by one girl and he’ll do everything in his power to keep his fool heart intact when he spots her years later. Chloe is back and this time she is determined to take her life by the reins and live it her way and then means making up for past mistakes in the hopes of winning back the boy she fell for and her mother forbade. These two characters are strong and easily captivate readers with their story as they work to overcome the past in order to hope for the future and this heartfelt romance keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the couple try to overcome family obstacles.

 

Summer Rhythm, although short, is a delightful read with wonderful characters that captured my heart. It is a spinoff of Night’s Embrace, although it is a standalone story. If being read in conjunction with the Others of Seattle series, it should be read after number four to prevent spoilers because the characters from the series do make appearances.

Review! Half-Blood Dragon (Dragon Born Saga #1) K.N. Lee!

Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy - K.N. Lee, Cait Reynolds

 

 

New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee presents Half-Blood Dragon, the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy.

 

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

 

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

 

A lady-in-waiting's job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather's plan to elevate the family's station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen's days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits.

 

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince's murder.

 

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

 

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

 

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

 

 

Embarking on this breathless and fascinating journey is one that will readers will certainly enjoy as it brings pirates, dragons, sorcerers and even mermaids to brilliant and vivid life.

 

Rowen is planning to elevate her family’s status by marrying the crown prince, but prophecies haunt her dreams, intrigue and seduction fill her days and death awaits. Change is coming with a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world and Rowen will have to accept her fate, awaken her gift and set the world on fire.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily enchant readers into their world full of thrilling suspense, excitement and daring plots that keep readers on the edge of their seat during this steady to fast paced plot. Most of the story is all about the intrigue which keeps ensures readers never have a dull moment as they try to determine what will happen next especially since it is filled with startling twists that cause astounding changes to Rowen’s life. There is also quite a bit of emotional issues that ensures that readers feel as if they understand the characters and which certainly adds depth to the story as Rowen faces prejudice, danger, and destiny. There’s not a whole lot of romance in this part of the story, although there is the seduction of the Crown Prince which is essential to Rowen’s stepfather’s plans.

 

The characters and the world are well developed and the author described the world and her characters vividly so it made is easy for me to imagine each and every scene as I became caught up in the story. The author did end the story at a decent point, but the story does have a cliffhanger as it is part of a saga, so I am looking forward to discovering what happens next in Rowen’s world.

New Release Review! Burn Dragon Burn (Dragon Guard #34) Julia Mills!

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills, and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY!

 

Solving murders and bringing bad guys to justice was all Nat ever wanted to do. She couldn’t imagine being anything but a Homicide Detective. It was who she was. What she could use her Gift for. Her absolute obsession.

 

Then he walked into the Precinct…

Tall, handsome as the Devil and hotter than homemade sin, Special Agent Rafe O’Rhordan was everything she never wanted and the one thing she couldn’t live without – a man strong enough to corral her and secure enough in himself to resist the temptation.

 

Battle after battle, war after war, saving the injured, fighting for justice, and freeing the imprisoned had become his life. Being a founding member of the Dragon Protection Agency – DPA for short – had kept him busy, fulfilled, and always on the move for the last few decades. He and his Brethren were a well-tuned machine no bad guy could escape.

 

Then he met her and everything changed…

Headstrong, smarter than a whip, and more gorgeous than any woman he’d ever set eyes on, Detective Donatella Hale was the light of his soul and a pain in his backside – a woman strong enough to stand up to him and soft enough to love for eternity.

 

But love and forever will have to wait. They have a killer to catch…

Six murders in eighteen months. No clues except the bodies he leaves behind, the murderer all the papers called the Yellow Ribbon Ripper is due to strike again, but who will be the next victim? Where will he leave the body?

 

The clock is ticking.
The killer is on the hunt.

Can Nat see where he is?
Can Rafe blaze the trail in time?

 

Fate Will Not Be Denied…but then again, She’s never been chased by a serial killer.

 

 

The Dragon Guards have joined law enforcement with the Dragon Protection Agency and Burn Dragon Burn is one exciting read. Nat is a Homicide Detective and is on the hunt for a serial killer and Rafe O’Rhordan is a Special Agent with the DPA is one hotter than sin distraction that she could do without, not to mention that fate has stepped in and made them mates and who knew that dragons and other shifters were real?

 

This story is very fast paced with lots of thrilling suspense and action throughout including an intense and blazing hot search for Nat, which keeps readers on the edge of their seats and surprising twists ensure they want to know what happens next. The intriguing romance between Nat and Rafe has lots of sass and feisty emotions which keep readers in awe of this fiery relationship and of course the story has lots of sexy shifters including dragons and a Cat King, so I can’t wait to get to know them better.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.


I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

Spotlight: Raw Egg by Joe King!

 

 

 

The problem with Gregor Planks as a fictional character is that he discovers he is trapped in a book. Naive and arrogant, the adolescent Gregor abandons a home life where his literary ambitions are viewed as an excuse to avoid working. He soon finds himself in the town of Riverside, where a story-stealing seductress sets him along a plot that forces him to take up residence in a dilapidated motel room. In squalor, Gregor writes fiction on an old typewriter while attempting to support himself with menial jobs he believes no artist should have to endure. Gregor's assumption that he is in control of the fiction he writes is soon disrupted when a recurring character he created begins to talk to him. Life quickly becomes a blend of fiction and reality for Gregor as he travels in and out of the stories he writes while attempting to win the love of Hannah, a gawky waitress who is immediately repulsed by Gregor's disillusioned reality.

 

Not to be left without a proper antagonist, the bulky restaurant owner - known to Gregor only as the hairy man - has an unquenchable desire to keep the would-be writer away from Hannah by any means possible. Blinded by his ego, Gregor overlooks the common threads of fiction that control his life and finds himself locked in a battle for his own existence.

Blog Tour with Giveaway! Awaken the Darkness (Immortal Guardian #8) Dianne Duvall!

 

Awaken the Darkness by Dianne Duvall
Immortal Guardians Book #8
Releasing July 10th, 2018

 

 

Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.

 

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

 

When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.

O'Connor Family Series Collection - Katie Reus

 

 

Holly, North Carolina—where it’s Christmas year-round and miracles can happen. A good thing for the O’Connor family—four local siblings, four sexy stories, four unique journeys to happily ever after.

 

Merry Christmas, Baby:
Legal guardian for her sister, Nora broke her no-romance rule for Jackson, but when he does something she can’t easily forgive, he’ll have to prove a second chance, and her heart, are worth the risk.

 

Tease Me, Baby:
Reluctantly leaving town to fulfill an obligation, Fallon can’t let her desire for Brad derail her plans. But the sexy sheriff is determined to prove she’s already right where she belongs…in his arms.

 

It’s Me Again, Baby:
When his new realtor turns out to be “the one who got away,” Maguire knows a second chance with Samantha is within reach…if he can save her from the menace who followed her home.

 

Mistletoe Me, Baby:
Nolan already wants Miranda, so playing her fake fiancé is no hardship. Convincing her family—and the whole town—is easy. Convincing Miranda, especially after tragedy strikes, proves far harder.

 

Length: 111,000 words
Author Note: each title can be purchased individually or as a complete series collection.

 

 

Visiting Holly, North Carolina and the O’Connor Family is a delightful experience with lots of sweet and steamy romance.

 

In Merry Christmas, Baby readers get to meet Nora who broke her no-romance rule for Jackson O’Connor in a romance that is full of emotional and suspense as Jackson does something she can’t easily forgive.

 

Next, in Tease Me, Baby readers are teased with the sexy and charming Brad who derails Fallon O’Connor’s plans when he becomes determined to prove she belongs in his arms in with a wonderfully sweet and heartfelt romance.

 

And then readers meet Samantha in It’s Me Again, Baby when Maguire O’Connor’s coincidentally runs into the “one who got away in a thrilling romance that gets the adrenaline pumping when Maguire has to save Samantha from the menace who followed her.

 

Finally, readers are introduced to Miranda in Mistletoe Me, Baby when Nolan O’Connor plays fake fiancé for her family with every intention of convincing Miranda that is all for real in this heartfelt romance that tugs at the heart when tragedy strikes.

 

All four stories have that delightfully wonderful holiday feeling to them and they all have sweet and tender romance with lots of heated passion and sizzling chemistry. All the characters are strong, captivating and easily draw readers into their stories and the family connection makes it easy to connect to each and every one. Individually, the stories are short and can be ready any time when there is a break in the day, but reading all together makes for a fabulous experience because each one is different and really fits the characters with ‘real’ life experiences and the town is ‘Thomas Kincaid’ perfect and Katie Reus did a wonderful job of bringing it to life and me wishing I could move there or somewhere just like it.

New Release Review! Theirs to Pleasure (The Marriage Lottery #2) Stasia Black!

Theirs to Pleasure - Stasia Black

 

 

In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men.
It’s the law.
Welcome to the apocalypse.

 

Shay came into the township knowing she’d be a lottery bride. So she’d have to marry five men.


She wasn’t the naïve girl she’d been eight years ago.
She’d learned the lessons that had been beaten into her and she’d learned them well.


So yes, so she’d share her body with her new husbands.
But her secrets were still her own.

 

The men are different than she expected, though. They each had their own reasons for entering the lottery. There’s Charlie, who’s so sweet and kind. Rafe, who’s a light-hearted jokester during the day but dark and demanding in bed. Then Jonas and Henry and Gabriel, each bringing their own damage and beauty to the clan until, day by day, they begin to feel like a real family.

 

There’s just one little problem with the happy new family clan.
One of them isn’t who he appears to be.
He is a spy for the enemy.

 

Will Shay and the township be doomed before she and her husbands have a chance at lasting happiness?


Please note that this book contains some dark elements and covers sensitive topics. Any reader that feels they shouldn't venture into this apocalyptic world of sometimes harsh realities should please consider before reading.

 

 

 

The second book in The Marriage Lottery series is a sensual and exciting read that holds readers captive from the very beginning. The story starts off giving a bit of background for how Shay and Charlie met which lets readers know right off the bat that this story is going to be full of thrilling suspense and action. The fast pace ensures that readers never have a dull moment or lose interest in anything that is going on and let me just say that there are lots of exciting events that take place, events that steam the senses, events that hold readers in suspense and events that really get the adrenaline pumping. Shay knew that she would participate in the lottery and have five husbands and while she intends to share her body, she will keep her secrets which certainly keeps readers guessing and on edge. The five men, Charlie, Rafe, Jonas, Gabriel and Henry all have stirring parts in this story as well, but since one of them may or may not be a spy for the enemy, readers are kept on edge no matter how well they get to know them.

 

These strong, captivating characters are brought to vivid life and easily enthrall readers with their story, so much so that surprising twists ensure that the readers can’t determine all the secrets and who is the enemy until the very thrilling reveal. The romance itself is full of super sexy and erotic scenes as well emotional turmoil that adds realism to the story especially since nothing is ever black and white. The story is also quite intense, not only because the emotionally troubled relationship but also due to the conspiracy that these characters find themselves embroiled in.

 

Once again, I was completely taken in by Stasia Black’s story and her well-developed characters and post-apocalyptic world that I had no problem envisioning, so I can’t wait to read the next one.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.

 

She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?

Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

Review! Shifter Mate Magic (Ice Age Shifters #1) Carol Van Natta!

Shifter Mate Magic - Carol Van Natta Van Natta

 

 

A lonely bear shifter meets his mate. She’s running for her life and doesn’t have time for romance.

 

Pregnant Jackie Breton just escaped from a corrupt feline pack intent on selling her half-shifter baby to the highest bidder. She’s smart, independent, and has a desperate plan to keep her baby safe: Get away from the pride as fast and far as possible.

 

Trevor Hammond, prehistoric bear shifter, has been rejected by everyone in his life for… being born, basically. Well, except for the beloved aunt who raised him. He’s built a career as an independent trucker, but life would be much better with someone he can hold in his arms and claim as his own.

 

When Jackie meets Trevor at a truck stop, his bear demands he help her. His aunt even calls with a dire warning: Get Jackie to the magical sanctuary town in Wyoming before she’s killed.


Jackie thinks he’s sexy as hell, but too good to be true. She doesn’t trust shifters. With the feline pride hot on her trail, however, Trevor and the quirky town of Kotoyeesinay might be her only chance for survival. Even Trevor’s indomitable bear may be no match for the dangerous enemy seeking retribution.

 

Discover the secret world of magic and true mates in Shifter Mate Magic, the first book in USA TODAY bestselling author Carol Van Natta's fun, action-filled, steamy-hot Ice Age Shifters™ series.

 

 

The first book in the fun, exciting and steamy Ice Age Shifters series is an exhilarating adventure. This fast paced story is filled with action and romance as a pregnant Jackie Breton escapes from a corrupt feline pack and lands in the lap of large shaggy bear whom stirs up quite a sizzling attraction. Trevor Hammond has been rejected by everyone because of his pre-historic bear self and he is determined to declare Jackie as his own. The romance is sweet and the passion is hot and steamy and while the story is on the fun side, the non-stop events that take place from the very first word to the last keeps readers on the edge of their seats with lots of thrilling suspense as the couple race to the quirky and cool town Kotoyeesinay which is may be the only place where Jackie will be safe.

 

Well, this is one series that is super fun and full of wonderful, wickedly cool and quirky characters with exciting lives that just invite readers to join right in and stay for a while and I can’t wait until I visit the Ice Age Shifters and the fascinating world again.

Release Day Review! I'm Not Lion To You (Soulmate Shifters in Mystery Alaska #2) Krystal Shannan!

I'm Not Lion To You - Krystal Shannan

 

 

He wants her more than life, but can she trust him with her biggest secret?

Kann is a lion shifter from another world. Literally. Even though he’s learned how to walk, talk, dress and sound just like everyone else in Mystery, Alaska, he still can't find his mate.

 

Until she walks right into the local grocery store. Her blue eyes and killer legs make his lion stand up and roar. Well, that and her soul is glowing just for him.

That only happens…

…with soulmates. Which means the magick of his world did cross over to earth with the survivors.

 

Penny is on the run, being chased at a breakneck pace over the Alaskan countryside. She can't trust anyone and knows it's only a matter of time until she's caught.

 

When she meets Kann, the sexy backwoods, plaid-shirted man from Mystery, she’s instantly attracted. However, she can’t afford a distraction and she doesn’t want anyone else to get hurt when they come for her.

 

Except, Kann has never met an objection he couldn't overcome. With patience and determination, he wins Penny over inch by inch. But will Penny's past steal everything from both of them?

 

Warning: This series contains a group of sexy warrior shifters, plenty of exciting action, kick-ass heroines, and melt-your-phone-sexy scenes.

 

 

Mystery, Alaska is growing and the wonderful characters not only steal reader’s hearts but they provide fascinating, exciting and passionate entertainment.

 

The second book in the Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series, I’m Not Lion To You has strong, charismatic characters that really pull readers into their story and they refuse to let them go. Kann is a sexy lion shifter from another world and hasn’t been able to find his mate until she walks right into the grocery store making his lion stand up and roar. Penny is running from someone who wants her dead and she really can’t afford distractions and she sure doesn’t know who she can trust. Together these two characters embark on a bonding journey that is full of electrifying chemistry, steamy romance and heated passion including some lava inducing sexy scenes although the relationship has quite a few obstacles that add intrigue and emotional depth to the story ensuring that readers want to know everything that happens to this couple.

 

The fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of exhilarating action, thrilling suspense, sexy warriors and a heroine that is tough but surprisingly vulnerable at the same time. The story keeps readers on the edge of their seats as the couple try to keep Penny hidden while they work on their relationship but the bad guy has brought reinforcements and will stop at nothing to acquire Penny.

 

Krystal Shannan has done it again...held me captive from the beginning of her story until the very end, there was no way I could put the book down once I started reading it and the small town atmosphere of Mystery, Alaska adds a little something extra to the book. Honestly, I beginning to wonder if the residents have a few secrets of their own…I can’t wait to find out.

New Release Review! Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon (Dragon Guards #21) Julia Mills!

Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon - Julia Mills

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills, and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY!

 

On her ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ soul-searching journey across the country with nothing but her radio blastin', the top rolled down, and her trusty red Jeep named Daisy Mae, Dax may have bitten off more than she can chew this time.

 

Bright red hair and a smile that darn near knocks him on his butt, the woman stuck on the side of the road is a wild filly J.D. would love to tame, but then again, she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is.

 

The desert’s hot but this couple's hotter , not to mention the raised-from-the-dead Medicine Man who’s hell bent on bathing his special little precious in their blood. Talk about prickly as a cactus!

 

The Great Creator and the Universe don’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but the flames of Destiny are hotter than ever before.

 

Grab your hat and boots and head for the desert, ‘cause this lady’s claiming her Dragon and nothin’ will ever be the same.

 

 


Well, I have to tell you that I got a bit more than I expected from this intriguing and completely enthralling story.

 

It is fast paced and full of thrilling events and exciting twists and turns as well as a mating that is quite literally flaming hot. Dax and J.D. is delightful characters full of snark and flames, they set the pages on fire when their chemistry comes together and they had me smiling and chuckling throughout the story, they even made me chuckle during the intense and thrilling excitement of their face off with a very deadly enemy.

 

And I have to say the uniqueness of the characters in this story also makes for an exhilarating change and certainly lights up my imagination while adding spice and magic to the story as well. This is a great romance to read during a break or when you have only a little time to yourself because it packs quite a sensational punch in such a short read.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books


I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.
I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

June 2018 Recap

 

The month of June was an exciting for me. I visit different worlds and met lots of fascinating characters and lots of sexy new book boyfriends! So, since I had such a wonderful time, I wanted to make sure others has the opportunities to have all the same pleasurable experiences that I had. I read and reviewed 33 books 17 of which had 5 star ratings and 14 of which were 4 star ratings and then a couple of 3 star ratings. I have provided the link to my original post for each book in case readers would like easy access to links or to learn more information about each one. I sincerely hope that everyone has a wonderful summer full of book adventures and experiences.

Review! The Callback (LoveBehindtheScenes #1) Brandy L. Rivers!

The Callback (Love Behind the Scenes Book 1) - Brandy L. Rivers

 

 

Actors are always waiting for the callback.

Leona Shay isn’t looking for love. Having just gone through a divorce from her high school sweetheart, her world is in upheaval. And things are about to get even crazier after selling the movie rights to her series.

Rising movie star, Luke Chance, could have anyone he wants, but he wants an author who may not be ready for him or anything that comes with being with him.

Luke wants a role in the movie. Leona can’t see him as the lead, not that she has a say in the cast. Their first encounter may be rocky, but he’s not going to let her slip away.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Leona. Tabloids and distance may send her running. How far is Luke willing to chase?

 

 

 

The Callback is the first book in Brandy L. Rivers’ Love Behind the Scenes series and is a great read that readers can easily become caught up in from the very beginning. Leona Shay is an author whose personal life is turmoil so she is certainly not looking to fall for anyone much less a rising movie star. Luke Chase can have anybody he wants but he wants the author who isn’t ready for him or anything that comes with him. The characters are strong and easily connected to with some sizzling chemistry between them that readers easily pick up on during this sweet romance full of hot and steamy passion and rocky heartfelt turmoil that keeps the readers in suspense throughout the story wondering if this couple can possibly work things out and reach for the happily ever after, especially as trust doesn’t come easy for Leona.

 

The plot moves smoothly with a steady pace that keeps readers glued to the pages as Luke tries to win Leona’s heart, but then disaster strikes due to an overzealous and determined former hook up and things really become intense and emotional which had me tearing up a bit. The author made it easy for each and every scene to be pictured as the reader follows the couples journey to their happily ever after with well written words and well developed characters that are realistic, so it is not surprising that I became emotionally invested in their romance.

 

I am huge fan of Brandy L. Rivers paranormal Others universe, but this is the first contemporary romance that I have read by her and I have to say that I was quite pleased that I enjoyed reading The Callback as much as I enjoy reading about the Others so I can’t wait to read The Long Shot which is due to be released later this month.

I've always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I'm working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I have a head full of stories to share.

 

I'm a stay at home mother with a wonderful husband who lets me write and write to my hearts content.
