4 Trouble Stars

The Trouble With Christmas - Amy Andrews

 

All she wants in an over-the-top, eggnog-induced holiday with her best friend, but her parents insists she comes home for a boring Christmas in New York, so Suzanne St. Michelle does what any sane rational woman would do, she claims her landlord is really her boyfriend who really loves Christmas. He does not love Christmas or company or chatty women, unfortunately Joshua Grady finds himself agreeing to Suzanne’s charade.

 

This ‘Credence Colorado’ holiday romance an emotional gripping tale with the most delightful hokiest Christmas ever to tickle the readers' holiday spirit . Although a bit hard to get into at first, the story soon picks up and the strong, captivating characters subtly draw readers into their story and before readers know it, they are hooked. The chemistry between Suzanne and Joshua is quite electrical and leaps off the pages but this relationship is one where the hero fights tooth and nail against opening his heart and letting anyone due to his past and the heroine has her own issues to deal with, so while this couple ‘fits’, the relationship is full of sparks, clashes and emotional turmoil that keeps things quite interesting.

 

The plot of the story happens at a steady pace and is quite suspenseful as readers wonder how this unlikely couple will manage to pull this elaborate charade. This results in lots of chuckles and fun, especially as the couple go to some pretty cut throat negotiations to get through this holiday and readers just have to turn the pages to find just what will happen next as it spreads some holiday cheer the readers' way.

 

5 Star Lethal Nights

Lethal Nights - Lora Leigh

 

He is no stranger to the dark side and as a safe-house owner for the Brute Force security agency, Dragon knows that that battle line between good and evil runs through the heart of every man – even beautiful women. She need help, but the kind of protection that Emma Jane needs comes at a cost – one that only someone like Dragon can provide.

 

This romantic suspense is the type of romance that speaks to readers and has them drooling over the sexy hero with the dark side. The chemistry between Dragon and Emma Jane sizzles with heat from every page and the couple certainly have no trouble with the passion side of things as this story has pretty steamy interactions but the relationship however has some issues due to Emma Jane’s trust issues and Dragon’s fearing no woman would be able to handle this rough, tough, scary alpha male with a very dark past. So this story while passionate has quite a bit of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages, especially with fear and anger that the situation is causing.

 

The story is fast paced and full of danger, excitement and lots of thrills as everyone tries to determine just who has targeted Emma Jane for death. The story not only several adrenaline pumping attacks on Emma Jane but the story also has the unfolding story involving the details of Dragon’s past and a family legend that adds lots of fascination and intrigue to the story as well. Readers can’t take their eyes from the pages with the never ending suspense and surprising twists that keeps readers gripping the book in a white knuckled grip.

 

5 Star Cowboy Christmas Redemption

Cowboy Christmas Redemption - Maisey Yates

 

She’s his best friend’s widow, but Caleb Dalton has loved Ellie Bell and her daughter Amelia for years, so when he discovers that she has a Christmas wish list – he’s throwing his hat into the ring. Ellie’s finally decided that it’s time to make some changes, but she never expects the biggest change to the heart-stopping she shares with Caleb.

 

This holiday romance is a very moving and sweet romance that produces a few tears as Caleb and Ellie figure out how to untangle their friendship and move it into a happily ever after. This hero and heroine are strong and easily capture the hearts of the readers as all of the emotional turmoil flows from the pages and readers can’t help but feel that Caleb and Ellie along with Amelia would make a great family, especially at such a special time of the year.

 

The plot proceeds at a steady pace and keeps readers engaged with this topsy turvy romance that has a couple struggling over some turbulent issues over moving forward when they have lost someone so close to them. The holiday setting and of course the growing Dalton family adds to the wonderful spirit of reaching for a happily ever after that warms the heart and captivates readers from the very beginning.

 

5 Star Fallen

Fallen - Rebecca Zanetti

 

Brigid Banaghan got caught hacking and now she is forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. Raider knows there is more to his new assignment than he’s been told. When Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert. Brigid needs Raider’s help to clear her father’s name but unless he can release his inner bad boy, pretending to be engaged won’t fly.

 

This ‘Deep Ops’ story is one hair raising exciting event after another and readers won’t be able to put it down once they get started. The characters are strong, vivid and easily grab the readers’ attentions and the chemistry between Raider and Brigid sizzles with extreme heat although they do seem like an unlikely couple but that just ensures that this growing relationship never has dull moment as the emotions flow and passions ignite.

 

The plot is fast paced with great timing that keeps the excitement coming and the suspense building throughout keeping readers on edge even as stunning twists ensures that they never know exactly what might happen. The ‘Deep Ops’ team is a great team that is strong with a compelling presence that readers wanting to be part of their team especially because this team is a bit unorthodox which makes things real and heroic. This story is energetic, spicy and thrilling with a bit of humor that really makes the story stand out.

Prowlers #2 - PRIMAL NIGHT - December 3, 2019

 

 

 

Kenzie pressed a hand to her stomach and hunched over. She was going to die. Pain had been her companion since Lucas bit her. Over the last hour a burning fire had started to smolder in her gut. At first, the discomfort was bearable, but it had grown to a raging inferno that blazed through her veins. Jaxx had proved to be a good distraction. He had sat as still as a statue listening to her ordeal the only thing that moved was a tick in his jaw, and his hands tightening on the wheel. 

 

Agony flowed in her body, building to a crescendo, and swamping her senses. Everything seemed heightened. She sucked in air, and as crazy as it was, she could smell Jaxx’s crisp smell. He smelled like a rainy winter’s morning drinking coco by a fire. It was the only thing that brought her a measure of peace. 

 

“Am I going to die?” Denial was a luxury she didn’t bother with. Her fear skyrocketed as she fur sprung from her pours, lingering before it disappeared just like that woman that had been cuffed to the trolley right before she died.

 

“It’s the change, don’t fight it. It will only make it worse, so I’ve been told.” Jaxx pulled out a cell and after a moment started barking orders down the line.

 

Her dry throat felt like a million fire ants bit into her flesh. Pain burned in her leg, and the bone snapped. She cried out. “Oh God!” 

 

“Shit,” Jaxx cursed. 

 

The pressure in her stomach expanded, and she flung herself back into the seat. Her shoulders pumped with each breath, and she braced herself with one hand on a head rest, and coiled her grip around the black suede seat cover. A spasm racked her body. She looked up and met Jaxx’s glowing gaze in the mirror. 

 

“Hold on, we’re nearly there.”

 

Her eyes pinched shut, and she clenched her teeth as her muscles contorted. Each breath accentuated the stabbing pain piercing every inch of her body. How the hell was she going to get through this? Tires squealed and the back end of the car swerved. Her vision wavered and she lost all sense of time. 

 

The car screamed to a halt. Too many scents and sounds engulfed her senses. It was if every sensation possible detonated, and she was experiencing them all at once. Jaxx open his door and a cacophony of voices filter in from outside.

 

Her door opened, and she would have fallen to the ground if Jaxx hadn’t swooped in and wrapped his arms around her. She inhaled a breath. Then another, and concentrated on anything but the pain. Fresh air filled her lungs and mingled with Jaxx, the smell oddly comforting. 

 

Jaxx strode forward, and the cool licks of the breeze dance across her skin. Her mouth throbbed, and needle like pain pierced through her gums. She screamed, and arched in Jaxx’s arms. He cooed soft words, and brushed her damp hair from her face as he led them into darkness. 

 

His soft words fanned across her ear. “I can ease your pain, if you let me.”

“Please.” She would agree to any of his demands, if he would just ease her suffering. 

 

She couldn’t be sure with her blurry vision, but it looked like thick fur dotted along her skin, and unlike before, it didn’t’ appear to be going anywhere. She moaned low in her throat, and pinched her eyes shut. The air suddenly denser. A door opened and banged shut, Jaxx sat down, and position her across his lap so they were facing the same direction. 

 

He peeled back the hair away from the nape of her neck. “I should warn you, there will be consequences.” 

 

His words sounded ominous and in that moment, she didn’t’ care. If she survived this, she could handle the repercussions then. A cramp started from the top of her head and rolled down her body to her toes. Her body contorted, and there was no more time for talking. If Jaxx planned on helping her, now would be it. He cursed, his hot breath fanning across her neck. His mouth clamped down on her skin. Sharp teeth popped through her flesh, and after the initial pain a euphoric numbness started to filter through her body. The aches, the burning fire, and sheer agony evaporated, and the spasms in her body seemed to target a different region.

Killian Silesia has dedicated his life to protecting the Tehrex Realm from demons, as well as, being the King of Fun. The nickname is appropriate, given he owns the realm's most popular nightclub, Confetti Too. His seat on the Dark Alliance council ensures the club is hidden from humans, yet safe for supernaturals. Killian's exposure to humans is entirely virtual as he is the computer expert in the realm, so he is entirely unprepared when a human enters his bar. He's captivated at first site and thrown off his game by the alluring female.

Has he found his Fated Mate, or a mole that could end supernaturals' secrecy once and for all?

 

Teagan Lewis accidentally discovers an unknown world of mythical creatures when she enters Confetti Too, and is further compelled to immerse herself in the intriguing yet dangerous realm. She meets the sexy owner, Killian, and can't resist his magical charm but as a malicious force takes hold, Teagan acts without conscious intent to learn every secret about the Dark Warriors, and its leader. Can she overcome the inner turmoil that threatens to expose the warriors and the Tehrex Realm? What price will be paid for succumbing to the sexy sorcerer?

 

 

 

Known as the King of Fun, Killian Silesia has dedicated his life to protecting the Tehrex Realm from demons and his experience with humans is entirely virtual as he is the computer expert in the realm.

Teagan Lewis accidentally discovers the unknown world of mythical creatures when she enters Confetti Too but she is compelled to immerse herself in the intriguing yet dangerous realm.

 

The Tehrex Realm and Khoth is once again in the spotlight with a fast paced, thrill-a-minute, highly suspenseful story that rocks the readers’ world. The demon witch with a capital B has stepped up her game with a sneaky, underhanded move that has put a Fated Mating in dire straights and could give her the information that she needs to get to the children, if the ‘Dark Warrior Alliance’ can’t find a way to undo it. The fast pace if full of suspense and excitement that keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next in both Realms. In Khoth, Izzy is missing her family and getting herself into a bit of trouble when she find herself caught between friends, but she also has a few surprises in store for the better of Khoth and of course the dragons’ enemy is still causing mayhem with a few exciting battles. 

 

And that’s not even mentioning the very suspenseful but delightfully passionate Fated Mating going on between Killian and Teagan that is if all they can circumvent the demons intentions which add lots of emotional turmoil and passion to this already energetic and gripping story.

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

 

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

 

Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami's strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.

 

Their life journeys led them both to Texas and one another. They fast became best friends and can always be found together. Whether it's lounging by the pool or writing steamy love scenes, they are frequently seen laughing and smiling!

Viceroy Kraw is invited to witness whatever prediction the ShadowCaster has brought to Incendium, along with King Ouros and Queen Ignita.

MY REVIEWS

 

 

Princess Thalina intercepts a mysterious stranger when he tries to break into the palace, ends up abducted and held captive but finds herself intrigued by the dangerous mercenary and strangely sympathetic to his quest.

 

This delightful Space Dragon romance is cute and amusing, full of passion, action, suspense. Thalina is a bit of a rebel with outlandish ideas that defies tradition when it comes to androids which causes a bit of strife in her family life but comes in quite handy when she meets the dangerous mercenary that sneaks into the palace. Their attraction and the chemistry between them is scorching but the relationship is doomed according to Incendium laws, which has quite a bit of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages. But this also causes a lot of suspense and excitement to the story as Thalina becomes determined to keep her man in this fast paced, exhilarating story that charms readers from start to finish.

 

 

 

Kraw has been invited to witness the prediction made by the ShadowCaster as Viceroy, but Kraw has a secret that, one that the prediction will bring to light.

 

This short but informative story gives readers insight into a bit of the past in regards to the loyalty of Viceroys to the individual King or to the position. The story is full of suspense and is quite emotional as Kraw is forced to answer for the decisions made by one his ancestors and also forces another subject to the forefront of their beliefs – that of magic. So while the story may be short, it obviously is quite important to the kingdom and to the readers that enjoy this series.

WYVERN'S WARRIOR is #3 & KRAW'S SECRET is #3.5 in the DRAGONS OF INCENDIUM series.

 

Features dragon shifter princesses whose adventures are out of this world!

 

Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess’s heart forever.

 

On the far side of the galaxy, two planets, Regalia and Incendium, are locked into orbit around a dying sun. Since the Queen of Regalia has twelve sons, and the King of Incendium has twelve daughters, it is clear to both monarchs that the time has come to put their differences aside and compel at least one pair of their children to marry. A prophecy that Drakina, the oldest daughter of the house of Incendium, will bear a son who will save the planet simply adds to the parental desire for a wedding.

 

The sons of Regalia are champions and knights. The daughters of Incendium are dragon shifters, fiery princesses with appetites beyond all expectation.

 

The first royal match does not work out well.

4 Hot & Bothered Stars

Hot & Bothered - Terri A. Wilson

 

Since he failed to protect the woman he loves, Remington’s beliefs are shattered, he doesn’t who to trust and he’s lost all confidence. Serving next to Remi as Queen was never on Dai’s vision board, but she must live up to her destiny or lose the man she loves. With savage murders afflicting Atlanta, Remi and Dai will have set aside their differences and their need for independence and fight together as one.

 

This serial romance is getting more and more suspenseful and intriguing with lots of new characters and surprising twists that keeps readers from having any clue just what may happen next.
