New Release Review! Slay All Day by Cynthia Eden!

 

 

Today I am experiencing delightful chills as I discover what happens when a monster hunter falls for his prey? Enjoy and don't forget to add SLAY ALL DAY by Cynthia Eden to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

What happens when a monster hunter falls for his prey?

 

Harrison Key has one job—hunt and destroy monsters. He’s taken out vamps, shifters, demons…it’s all in a night’s work for him. He protects the innocent and destroys the wicked. Case closed. The job doesn’t pay much and the benefits are literally hell, but a hunter is born to the work. Gifted with super strength and speed, Harrison was created to fight monsters. There is nothing else for him in this world.

 

Then he meets her.

 

She looks like innocence but makes him think of the hottest sin. When Harrison first meets Elise Aine, she’s surrounded by vamps who are only too eager to take a bite. Harrison stakes the vamps and intends to walk away from Elise, but she has other plans. She says that she’s under supernatural attack. Elise desperately needs his protection, and she’ll pay any price. One look into her dark and gorgeous eyes, and Harrison can’t walk away. He doesn’t want to walk away. He wants her.

 

What Harrison doesn’t know…could just kill him.

 

Elise isn’t human. Not by a long shot. And she’s got big plans for Harrison. Sure, the guy may think he’s a hunter, he may believe that his job is to rid the world of the wicked, but he’s dead wrong. And with her help, Harrison may just turn out to be the wickedest one of them all. Because he’s not really a hunter. He’s something far, far more interesting. And hot. Smokin’, in fact.

 

He just needs to let his wild side out to play…

 

As the queen of the fairies, Elise was born to trick and deceive, and, with way too many enemies closing in, she needs the most powerful protector imaginable at her side. Harrison is her destined mate, if he’ll just stop fighting monsters long enough to see that deep inside…he is a beast. A beast like no other. One that can blast fire and soar into the skies. A beast who can only be bound and tamed by love.

 

Betrayal burns deep and cuts hard.

 

Can the queen of the fairies show a hunter that even monsters can love? Or when he finds out the truth about her, will rage be all that Harrison knows? Either way, things are about to get red-hot. Watch out for the flames and smoke.

 

 

Author’s Note: SLAY ALL DAY is a stand-alone with action, humor, and plenty of hot times ahead. Sit down, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

 

 

 

He was created to fight monsters. Taking out vamps, shifters, demons…it’s all in a night’s work for Harrison Key. There’s nothing else in this world for him until he meets her. He saved her and he intended to walk away, but Elise Aine had other plans. She desperately needs his protection and she’ll pay any price. But what Harrison doesn’t know…could just kill him.  Elise isn’t human and she’s got big plans for Harrison. He just needs to let his wild side out to play.

 

‘Slay All Day’ is a bit of a twisted fairy tale full of suspense, rockin’ emotions, betrayals, secrets and a rip roarin’ romance that shouts “MINE!” to the rafters! The chemistry between Harrison and Elise is fully charged and ready to rock their worlds but this spirited relationship has a bit of an issue – monster hunters don’t have relationships… Lots of heated passion, emotional turmoil and some chuckle worthy, arguments flow throughout this relationship building and readers can’t help but enjoy the ride.

 

The plot is fast paced with suspense, action and excitement building throughout which keeps readers on an adrenaline high but add in some ‘really?’ twists, some ‘OMG’ twists, some ‘heck yea!’ twists and ‘no way’ twists and you get non-stop, nerve racking action with a side of fun and a courtship that defies everything that readers thought they knew because no one is who or what they seem in this energetic read.

BREATHLESS WITH HER is the 1st book in the LESS THAN series.

 

The Carr siblings have always been a unit. No matter what came at them, they stood together, even if they didn’t always get along. Of course, that means they’re always in each other’s business. When one of them falls in love, the other three are sure to follow, even when they’re adamantly against it. After all, their parents were the worse example of a stable relationship. Why would they risk what they have now for what could surely fall apart and ruin everything later?

 

Chance encounters of the sequined kind, best friends who aren’t really just your friend, and childhood meet cutes that are anything but cute force the Carr siblings to face what life has brought them. Again.

Chapter One

 

“The team needs me.” Julian Hancock, or Jagger to everyone but his mother, managed not to sound pleading as he addressed his former team leader. Bryant Vale was the warrior director now and less interested in hearing his arguments. “With you off the team and no replacement yet, my place is here.” 

 

Jagger should be in his typical uniform of black tactical pants and a long-sleeved black shirt specially designed to fit around his wings. It seemed sacrilegious to sit in his boss’s office wearing a blue T-shirt and a pair of black athletic shorts. But it was necessary for his latest assignment. 

 

He couldn’t take another day shadowing Felicia fucking Montclaire. She was in some danger he only knew vague details about and she’d demanded him as her bodyguard. Demanded. Like the spoiled priss she was. 

 

Spoiled and superficial and haughty…and strong and gorgeous and willowy. Her legs went for miles and haunted his dreams.

 

He clenched his jaw and steadied his gaze on his new director. Felicia Montclaire was only an obstacle to what he really wanted. Someday, he’d have his own team to lead and he couldn’t do that stuck among humans, babysitting the aimless daughter of a senator.

 

A flash of guilt flared. Felicia was still technically a senator’s daughter, but her father had been murdered a couple of months ago. She’d weathered the news well, but then he hadn’t expected her to get weepy or be derailed by her grief. He hadn’t expected her to show any feeling at all. And he’d been right. 

 

His director, Bryant Vale, was as expressionless as a wall. A dark, glaring wall. 

 

“I understand your complications with Ms. Montclaire—”

 

“Forget our history,” Jagger gritted out. 

 

He hated that anyone knew the story between him and the vexing angel he was protecting. Or rather, the lack of a story, the result of Ms. Montclaire not setting the record straight and letting everyone think he was a cheating asshole. 

 

“The team needs me.” He said it as much for himself as to make a point. “If Felicia truly requires protection, then she should stay in the realm, in a designated home, with a designated guard.”

 

Director Vale’s demeanor had hardened as soon as Jagger had cut him off. Damn. Jagger had meant to use a lighter touch, not charge in like a bull at his first sight of red. “Sit down.”

 

Jagger took his time selecting the backless seat across from the obnoxiously large mahogany desk. He draped his wings over the edge but couldn’t force them to relax. “Director Vale—”

 

“Shut it.” You could take the warrior off the team, but you couldn’t soften his personality. Director Vale leaned across the desk, his eyes blazing. “I can’t believe you’re dense enough to think that Felicia is safer here. She can help identify her attacker and lead us to the people behind the conspiracy against this realm. The ones who could tell us just what this conspiracy entails. Have a think on it.”

 

Jagger refused to drop his gaze, and that was a harder challenge than most when Director Vale was pissed. The scars encompassing half the male’s face didn’t make him easy to look at on most days. 

 

The director wasn’t finished. “Her family’s mansion was burned to the ground by angel fire while over half our team was inside. While my mate was inside. 

Director Richter—” His gaze cut away. Leo Richter was no longer the director. 

He’d lost both legs at the knee thanks to the fire and was still recovering. 

“Felicia can hide among the humans better than in our realm. Numen isn’t safe for her. And do I need to go into the main reason why you shouldn’t be tied to the investigation, why you’re too close to the case?”

 

Jagger’s teeth should’ve cracked under the pressure of his jaw. His father, James Hancock. 

 

His good-for-nothing, cheating father, who’d risked their entire race by spilling the news of their existence to his human side piece. His father, who’d had several human side pieces, and probably a few angelic ones, while he’d had a committed mate. 

 

His father, who’d had his wings taken, been declared a fallen, and tossed out of the realm forever. 

 

His father, who was working with the creatures of Daemon to take over Numen, the realm where his own son resided. If he were a weaker male, he’d feel like his father had chosen the demons of Daemon not only over the angels of Numen, but over him too. Now the man would work with anyone or anything if it served his agenda. Archmasters, symasters, sylphs—the new “Jameson Haddock” didn’t seem to discriminate. 

 

But then if Jagger had ever meant a damn thing to his father, then perhaps Jameson would still be an esteemed senator of Numen.

 

Not that his father’s multilayered betrayal affected him. 

 

He kept his voice even. “Our team is two short. Dionna took over as leader, but we no longer have you, and with me tied up…” Literally, if Felicia had her way.

 

His team was everything to him. Having lost his father so young, and his mother… Well, Chanel Hancock wasn’t known for her nurturing nature. She’d turned twice as cold and ten times harder than marble after what she referred to as “your father’s unfortunate choices.” 

 

“I understand.” Director Vale sat back. “But they aren’t functioning as a traditional warrior team, not until this is over. They—you—are under my personal direction. You’re the only ones I completely trust now.”

 

The director’s unwavering trust mollified him. For now. He’d grown up getting side-eyed by his peers, as if they wondered when he’d follow in his father’s footsteps. And then he’d weathered the Felicia storm, which had broken the trust of the one most dear to him. Without those experiences, Director Vale’s words wouldn’t have meant as much.

 

To still have Bryant Vale in his corner after they’d learned his own exiled father was the one behind the trouble in the realm was humbling. 

 

And he needed to make sure he continued to earn it. 

 

Even if he had to deal with the fallout of the maelstrom that Felicia Montclaire brought to his life.

I am back at Draegon where Kelton is being sent to stop an anthropologist who is about to tell the world about the Dragon Kings. Enjoy and don't forget to add FEVER by Donna Grant to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

His kiss was fire and passion. She shivered, wondering how he knew just how to touch her, to send her spiraling into an abyss of pleasure…

 

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have lived among mortals, forsaking their true selves. But for Kelton, hiding in the realm of shadows—and existing only in the world of dreams—is no longer an option. A human woman claims to know that he, like other dark warriors of his kind, is real. That the legends about these powerful, seductive men with hearts ablaze are true. And that, with just one embrace, Kelton could destroy her…or love her until the end of time.

 

Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist who knows better than to fall into the arms of a Dragon King. But how can she resist Kelton when he’s so willing to share his secrets and bear his soul? He hasn’t met a beautiful, trustworthy woman like Bernadette in…forever. But once they give into their mutual desire, their worlds will never be the same. Soon Bernadette must face her dilemma: Should she expose the truth about Kelton in the name of science? Or join him in his battle with the dark forces—in the name of love?

FEVER Excerpt By Donna Grant

 

“Dragons are real.”

 

The words went through the small room of the restaurant reserved for special meetings like a pistol shot. 

 

Today’s meeting was that of the local cryptozoologists.

 

Keltan wanted to be anywhere but there. Yet, Ulrik had sent him halfway across Scotland to hear whatever Dr. Bernadette Davies had to say about her highly publicized talk about dragons.

 

Keltan might have been shocked at the sight of her. He’d expected some older woman in her sixties with gray hair, glasses, and at least two chins. Instead, he was met with a vision that actually had his mouth hanging open. 

 

Straight black hair parted to one side fell just past her chin that brought attention to her incredible cheek bones. Her large jade eyes met everyone with determination and a calmness that proclaimed she wholly believed everything she was going to talk about.

 

Her hunter green button-down shirt was willowy, molding tantalizing against her breasts. And the black pants the shirt was tucked into made his mouth water when he caught a glimpse of her perfect derriere.

 

Keltan had to bite back a groan when he saw the black stilettos she wore. He’d always been a sucker for a woman who wore heels. 

 

But it was the first three words out of her mouth that made him sit up straight and pay attention. A jolt of dread and worry went through him so quick that his stomach roiled viciously.

 

“We, as cryptozoologists work tirelessly to prove that such creatures exist,” Bernadette continued. “Many of you know for certain that particular creatures you believe in are real. For me, it’s dragons.”

 

“Do you have proof?” someone asked.

 

Keltan didn’t look to the voice. He kept his gaze locked on Dr. Davies. Now he wished he hadn’t chosen a seat toward the back. If he’d sat closer, he wouldn’t have to look around the various heads to keep her in view as she walked back and forth.

 

There was no doubt of the confidence she exhibited. And while there was a chance she was one of the few off her rocker, Keltan didn’t think that was the case. As a Dragon King, he and his brethren at Dreagan had gone to great extremes to hide their true selves from humans.

 

But a few years ago, the Dark Fae had taken a video of the Dragon Kings in a skirmish with them. The Dark released that video to the world, and speculation about dragons soared overnight – and it had yet to diminish.

 

Now, humans looked to the sky constantly, making it harder and harder for the Kings to shift, even on the sixty thousand acres where they lived. The magical barrier surrounding Dreagan stopped numerous drones from mortals on a weekly basis trying to see if Dreagan was the home of dragons.

 

It made every one of the Kings wonder if it was wise to have chosen the double dragon as their logo as well as using the Celtic word for dragon as the name of their whisky. 

 

Ryder, the one King who could create and work any electronic, was the one who used his hacking skills to wipe the video of them from everything. Yet, the curiosity of the humans had been woken. They wanted answers.

 

 

 

Donna is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over forty-five novels. Her most popular series is the breathtaking Dark King (aka Dragon King) series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae.

 

In addition to her novels, Donna has written over forty short stories, novellas, and novelettes for digital-first and print release. She has been dubbed as giving the “paranormal genre a burst of fresh air” by the San Francisco Book Review. Her work has been hailed as having “deft plotting and expert characterization” by Publisher’s Weekly and “sizzling” by RT Book Reviews.

 

She has been recognized with awards from both bookseller and reader contests including the National Reader’s Choice Award, Booksellers Best Award, as well as the coveted K.I.S.S. Award from RT Book Reviews.

 

Donna travels often for various speaking engagements, conferences, and book signings. She is also a frequent workshop presenter at national conferences such as RT Book Lovers Convention and Thrillerfest, as well as local chapters.

 

Born and raised in Texas, she also has ties across the border in Louisiana. Growing up with two such vibrant cultures, her Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding. She is never far from her faithful 80 pound dog, Sisko, or her three cats. She can often be found at the movies or bookstore with her children. Or buying makeup. And shoes.

Evan Bishop used to be called the golden boy, he had it all and was about to close the business deal of a lifetime and marry the woman of his dreams. But everything falls apart when a faceless enemy wants to destroy his family’s empire and see him dead. Isla MacDonald isn’t walking away from Evan just because he’s decided to shut her out of his life but when all her attempts to see him fail, she tries to resume her life. But when someone tries to kill her and she needs a bodyguard, Evan steps up and insists on protecting her.

 

The second book in the ‘Endgame Trilogy’ is continues to engage readers with lots of thrills and emotional turmoil that draws readers in and refuses to let go. The chemistry between Evan and Isla oozes appealing electrical currents that readers can practically feel but this relationship is quite rocky due to the events that took place in the previous book (this book could be read as a standalone but to get the full impact of this relationship, it should be read in sequence). The after math and the rocky relationship has lots of emotions flowing from the pages that really gives readers a feel for what these strong, bold characters are going through and makes the characters as well as the story come alive.

 

The plot is a fast paced, suspenseful buildup of adrenaline pumping events that keep readers on the edge of their seat and holding their breath with anticipation and the surprising twists ensures that readers can’t possibly predict any outcome or guess just who the bad guy is during this shocking and exhilarating read.
