Her past has taught her to be wary…
 
With an abusive relationship behind her, wolf shifter Leslie is quietly raising her young son in the Kendrick pack. If she’s occasionally lonely, it’s a small price to pay for her son’s safety. And if she’s secretly longing for pack alpha Malcolm Kendrick, well…she’s keeping that fantasy to herself. Experience has made her a realist, and they’re far too different to work.
 
This alpha is about to stake his claim…
 
She has no idea Malcolm wants her just as fiercely. That he’s been subtly courting her for a year. But subtlety has gotten him nowhere—even if he thought it was the best choice after what she’d been through. He wanted to make sure Leslie didn’t feel obligated to him, that she was truly ready to move on. Now that he knows she is, he’s determined to make sure it’s with him. And when a threat from her past surfaces, he’ll eliminate anyone who would dare to hurt his mate.

Leslie is quietly raising her son in the Kendrick pack after escaping an abusive relationship and if she’s occasionally lonely, it’s a small price to pay for her son’s safety, although she’s secretly longing for Malcolm, the pack alpha. Malcolm has been subtly courting her for a year and it’s gotten him nowhere but now that he knows she is ready to move on, he’s determined to make sure it’s with him. 
 
This ‘Crescent Moon’ story is a sweet romance that brings smiles to the readers’ face. Leslie has worked to overcome her past and she’s ready for Malcolm to step up but vulnerabilities and doubt make her bit hesitant in believing that they are right for each other. Malcolm has been moving forward slowly giving her time to adjust to being safe and to heal from her past. This keeps emotions flowing from the pages and these strong, compelling characters easily capture readers’ hearts with their story.
 
The plot is fast paced and while it is on the short side, it has its share of romance, passion, suspense and excitement as a feral rogue comes sniffing around and instigating trouble and with a twist, the pack soon discovers that not everything is as it seems. Readers can’t help but keep their eyes glued to the pages of this delightful romance.

Review! Blaize and the Maven (The Energetics #1) Ellen Bard!

 

 

I've discovered a new world one full of people with amazing gifts -Energetics - and right now Blaize needs to form a partnership with her new Maven Cuinn before its too late! Enjoy and don't forget to add BLAIZE AND HER MAVEN - the first book in The Energetics series by Ellen Bard to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Blaize is a powerful but inexperienced energetic. Having only just passed her first Chakra Trial, Manipura, fire, she is sent to Canada to an expert Maven to be trained in her second energy: Ajna, or the mind.

 

Her Maven is the mysterious and reluctant Cuinn, who has problems of his own - disturbing dreams that appear to show him standing against the destruction of the energetics race. When he discovers that Blaize is part of the prophecy, he knows her training needs accelerating - but he’s not prepared for the heat she brings to his normally calm and ordered world.

 

But both Cuinn and Blaize have secrets of their own, secrets that could destroy their partnership before it’s begun - a partnership that has a far greater importance than they realize.

 

Will they trust each other before it's too late?

 

The first in a captivating new series of romance and magic, family and loyalty, love and power.

 

 

 

She’s a powerful but inexperienced energetic and she’s just passed her first Chakra Trial, Manipura, fire. She’s looking forward to some taking some time from her energetic studies but instead, Blaize is being sent to train in her second energy – Anja, or the mind. Quinn would rather be devoting his time to unlocking the prophecy that his disturbing dreams of the destruction of the energetic dreams are showing him that take on a trainee. But when it becomes obvious that need to work together, they both have secrets that could destroy their partnership and have a far greater importance than they realize.

 

This series debut story is a thrilling read in a fascinating new world where the characters are able to manipulate various types of energy through their bodies. The characters are strong, compelling and easily capture the readers’ attentions and their relationship is full of sizzling chemistry, flying sparks, steamy passion and emotional turbulence, all of which combine to make the story interesting and enjoyable, especially since the relationship starts off on the wrong foot and remains a bit rocky throughout.

 

The plot is steady to fast paced and full of thrilling suspense that draws the readers in, igniting the curiosity and adrenaline pumping excitement that keeps readers biting their nails in anticipation of what will happen. While Blaize is a bit predictable in some her actions, she also has plenty of surprises for the readers as well and the story has enough twists and turns to keep readers on their toes and the readers should be prepared for some new vocabulary (there is a very helpful glossary at the end of the story) and fascinatingly unique elements in this exhilarating read.

New Release Review! Night's Kiss (The Ancients Series #2 / Biting Love Universe) Mary Hughes!

 

 

I have to share this with all of you vampire lovers out there! I was shadowing a vampire hunter out to destroy all evil bloodsuckers but in a stunning twist - she finds herself teaming up with a tall, dark, & too sexy-for-his-own-good, Ryker who is definitely gorgeous enough to be a vampire finding the vampire king before some evil monsters do! Enjoy and don't forget to add NIGHT'S KISS - the 2nd book in The Ancients series by Mary Hughes to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

As a human who hunts vampires, I risk death each night I take to the streets. Bloodsuckers are stupidly fast. I have only my wits, my practice, and my weapons.

 

Oh yeah, and my rage.

 

Vampires killed my parents before my eyes when I was young. My revenge? I'll destroy every last one of the evil bastards, starting with their king.

 

But only one man can help me locate the king. Achingly tall, dark, and too-sexy-for-his-own-good, Ryker is gorgeous enough to be the vamp king himself. But the devilish arch to his black eyebrow, his white, unfangy grin, and rocking the daytime are good clues that he's human.

 

We’ll have to work together as uneasy allies if I hope to get my final revenge on the king—only now it seems evil monsters are also after our prey, and they’ll stop at nothing to see us all dead. And why are they having so much trouble finding the king?

 

 

Each book in the Ancients series is STANDALONE:

 

 

 

Kat is a human who hunts vampires, risking death with only her wits, practice, her weapons and her rage in her quest to avenge her parents by destroying every last one of the evil bloodsuckers – starting with their king. Ryker is gorgeous enough to the be the vamp king himself but the devilish arch to his back eyebrow, white unfangy grin and the rocking daytime are good clues that he’s human. He’s the only man that can help Kat locate the king, so she forms an uneasy alliance with him only for them to discover that evil monster are also after their prey…oh and also want Kat and Ryker dead.

 

The second book in ‘Ancients Series’ is an energetic, thrilling and exciting read full of flying sparks and adrenaline pumping danger. The characters are strong, daring and demand the readers’ attention right from the start and the chemistry between Kat and Ryker sizzles with bright electrical current creating lots of flying sparks to singe the pages as Kat fights their magnetic attraction with some feisty snark and tough as nails attitude. This relationship is balanced on a razor wire that keeps the hero, heroine and the readers on edge throughout as Kay and Ryker, each have the same mission but the their goals are vastly different. 

 

The plot is fast paced with non-stop excitement whether that excitement is coming from clashes between Kat and Ryker, Kat and her long lost family, Kat and her targets, Ryker and the Alliance, or Kat, Ryker and the monsters. With so much action and excitement flowing from the pages, there is never a dull moment to be found and the romance is one where the hero and heroine are the last to know.

New Release Review! More Than Pleasure You (More Than Words #5.5) Shayla Black!

 

 

I am in Hawaii visiting confirmed bachelor Stephen Lund and guess what? He's trying to convince Sky Ingram that their hot but temporary engagement should be a forever one! Enjoy and don't forget to add MORE THAN PLEASURE YOU - book #5.5 in the More Than Words series by Shayla Black to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

 

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?

 

I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. After he delivered an ultimatum to either get over his transgressions or get out of the family business, I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.

 

When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

 

 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

 

 

 

Confirmed bachelor and son of a successful billionaire, Stephen Lund has to decide if get over his father’s transgressions or get out of the family business and he decides to use a temporary getaway in Maui to do just that. Skye needs someone to play her pretend fiancé at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. But soon the pretend engagement begins to feel real and Stephen is confronted with the reality that their lives are irrevocably changed and the decision he had to make is now one where he has to choose between returning to the life and wealth he’s always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened his heart.

 

A whirlwind romance that is sweet yet poignant and full of passion and anticipation. The characters are strong, compelling and easily captures readers by the heart as some heavy duty emotional turmoil flows from the pages. One believes the other is too good to be true and the other is a workaholic, so when trouble strikes it’s obvious to Skye that she needs to kick Stephen to the curb and handle things on her own, no matter how much it hurts. Suspense builds as the reader wonder if this couple will be able to overcome their differences and reach their happily ever after. The story is on the fast side as it is a short one but this story hits right in the heart as the author brings these characters to vivid life and the conclusion to this passionate and sweet romance is so very swoon worthy.

Sydney Park has endured her curse of knowing how things will end before they even begin since she was a child which wreaks havoc with her dating life. Blake Beaumont’s ability of reading the past in objects has caused more trouble than he cares to admit. While opening the Museum of the Macabre, he joins forces with Sydney’s tour company and he can’t help but jump at the chance to rekindle their relationship. When Sydney has a vision of a closed casket funeral, she knows someone she loves is going to die. And if they can’t unravel the mystery, their haunted pasts will eclipse any chance of a future.

 

Be prepared for some chills, heart pounding suspense and a haunting mystery during this exhilarating romance. The characters are strong and demand attention from the readers as they race against time to stop Sydney’s vision from coming true. The chemistry between Sydney and Blake is enough to light up Bourbon Street but this relationship has a past and it didn’t end on a great note, so the story is full of emotional turmoil from the relationship and from their respective gifts that cause their lives quite a bit of trouble. 

 

The plot of this story is fast paced and readers can’t help but become carried away with all the knuckle biting suspense that constantly builds throughout this thrilling story. It just keeps building and building and building…(oops wrong rabbit!!!). Mardi Gras is a perfect setting for this story which adds spice and the Ghost Tours in New Orleans makes a fabulous connection to haunting mystery. The story is full of twists and turns and readers can’t take their eyes from the pages because there is no way to know who the bad guy is or if there even is one.

I've always been fascinated with the paranormal. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with my love of a good happily-ever-after, and becoming a paranormal author seems like the logical choice! I love ghosts, psychics, werewolves, vampires, demons, and even the occasional guardian angel. If it's paranormal, I've probably written about it...or at least considered writing about it.

 

In my past life, I was a high school journalism teacher. But after ten years of teaching other people how to write, I decided to stay home with my kids and write my own stories in my free time. When I'm not writing or reading books about writing, you'll find me reading paranormal romances, thrillers, romantic suspense, YA, and middle grade fantasy (I have a teen and a tween who love to read. It's fun to discuss books with them!).

 

I love red wine and chocolate, and I can make a mean mojito. I like movies, I'm passionate about traveling, and I might have a mild Dave and Buster's addiction. I'm married to a tall sexy Dutch guy with piercing blue eyes and a swoon-worthy accent. He also shares my enthusiasm for D&B! In addition to my two human children, I also have two fur babies who swear they're chihuahuas (but at 12 & 18 pounds respectively, I'm not so sure).
