Review! The Dragon Prophecy (Saint's Grove) Carly Fall!

 

 

I am visiting Saint's Grove where Eric - a young man who had no idea that supernatural beings exists is about to be forced to make a that could destroy him! Enjoy and don't forget to add THE DRAGON PROPHECY by Carly Fall to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

When an astrological event opens up the seams of the universe, paranormal entities descend, bringing death and destruction…

 

In the sleepy town of Saints Grove, Eric Thomas never expected to find anything but a good sandwich at the bar, friendly people, and a little rest and relaxation while trying to put his life back together.

 

When a demon attacks him, a female named Tirvu promptly saves him. With her snowy hair and glowing blue eyes, he recognizes her as the same woman who has been torturing him in his dreams. Upon agreeing to help her find the Moonstone—a relic that will save her people, a realm of dragon shifters—he is sucked into the world of vampires, werewolves, and demons.

 

Tirvu gives Eric glimpses of another life he doesn’t remember, where he also lived as a dragon shifter. If they can’t find the Moonstone in time, she will be trapped on Earth. If they do, Eric will be forced to make a choice that could destroy him.

 

 

 

Eric Thomas is trying to put his life back together and thought he would find a good sandwich, friendly people and a little rest and relaxation in the sleepy town of Saint’s Grove. But then chaos descends on the town and he finds himself being saved from a demon attack by a female named Tirvu whom he recognizes as the woman who has been torturing him in his dreams. He agrees to help her save her people but if they do, Eric will be forced to make a choice that could destroy him.

 

A thrilling and suspenseful romance that crosses time and realms. The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw the readers into their story. The chemistry between Eric and Tirvu sizzles with lots of electricity and Eric feels drawn to her, their relationship is anything but easy, especially once Eric learns of their past. Emotions flow from the pages as the couple struggle with their quest and how to move forward in a relationship where they live in separate lives and in one realm their love is forbidden. 

 

The story is fast paced and full of suspense and excitement as they come across ghosts, werewolves and vampires and demons in their search for the moonstone, but none of that comes even close to what the prophecy has in store for them. Readers may find Eric a bit wishy washy for a hero as he tries his best to deny who and what he is but his character does work well with the story and readers can certainly enjoy this entertaining story and its wonderful conclusion.

New Release Review! Bound by Flames (Hidden Realms of Silver Lake #8 / Silver Lake Universe) by Vella Day!

 

 

I am once again in the Hidden Realms of Silver Lake where dragon shifter Logan Caspian has his hands full with journalist Wendy Oprander, who is determined to get the scoop on the deaths of two teens! Enjoy and don't forget to add BOUND BY FLAMES the 8th book in the Hidden Realms of Silver Lake by Vella Day to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

What's a guy to do when the woman he wants refuses to listen to reason?

 

Dragon shifter, Logan Caspian, has his hands full with journalist Wendy Oprander. Sure, she might be a wolf shifter, but that doesn't mean she can't be killed. And it would be an understatement to say he was upset when he found out she was investigating the same dangerous case he was working on. Naturally, Logan was quick to suggest she drop the story, but that discussion did not go over very well at all. Not to worry. He could be just as stubborn as Wendy. After all, Logan was a Guardian and her mate.

 

Considering everyone she talks to seems to be lying, Wendy is struggling to figure out who to trust. Having the super-hot Logan hovering over her isn't helping one bit. Her focus has to be on getting the scoop on this big conspiracy and not on him.

 

When someone tries to kill her, she has to decide if she is willing to risk it all for her dream job or chance losing the man she wants more than air itself.

 

 

 

Wendy Oprander might be a wolf shifter, but that doesn’t mean she be killed so when dragon shifter Logan Caspian finds out that she is investigating the same dangerous case he is working on, he’s quick to suggest she drop the story, which doesn’t go over very well. Wendy is struggling to figure out who to trust as everyone she talks to seems to be lying and having the super-hot Logan hovering over her isn’t helping one bit, but when someone tries to kill her, she has to decide if she is willing to risk it all for her dream job or chance losing the man she wants more than air itself.

 

This romance is sweet, full of passion and suspense as the strong, vibrant characters try to reach a happily ever after where the heroine isn’t sure about mating much being sure that Logan is the one. The chemistry sizzles with heat from every pages and the emotions flow throughout, but this romance has some more, a hero and heroine that is determined to get what they want, which keeps things quite interesting with some fun, some sweet, some intense, some exasperating and some heated moments. 

 

The plot is fast paced and full of thrilling suspense and exhilarating excitement especially the closer this couple gets to accepting their mating and the closer they get to unraveling the dangerous case they are working on. With lots of twists and turns and quite a few possible bad guys to choose from, this case is a deadly one to be sure, which keeps readers glued to the pages of this passionate, sweet, suspenseful and sexy romance.

Liz isn’t about to let some deadbeat into her life, and with every turn, Valla just digs himself a deeper hole. Yet with each conflict, the two find themselves inevitably drawn to one another again and again. She can’t ignore his desire to give her the world, but when imminent danger arises, nor can she ignore that it was his reckless action that put her there.

New Release Review! Sergeant's Christmas Siege (Alaska Force #3) Megan Crane!

 

 

I am visiting Grizzly Harbor, Alaska today and I have found out that danger is lurking in the wilds and has the Alaska Force in it's cross hairs and to top that off a straight-arrow, by-the-rules, Alaskan State Trooper thinks the secretive Alaska Force commandos are bad guys and Sergeant Templeton Cross is under siege right at Christmas. Enjoy & don't forget to add SERGEANT'S CHRISTMAS SIEGE the 3rd book in the Alaska Force series by Megan Crane to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Danger lurks in the wilds of Grizzly Harbor this Christmas but it's love that has Alaska Force in the cross-hairs, from the USA Today bestselling author of Sniper's Pride.

 

When straight-arrow, by-the-rules Alaskan State Trooper Kate Holiday is sent to investigate a local band of secretive commandos in remote Grizzly Harbor over the holidays, her least favorite time of year, her objective is clear: disband Alaska Force and arrest them. But Kate didn't count on the diabolical temptation of Templeton Cross. The former Army Ranger exudes charm and has absolutely no respect for the rules of law that govern Kate's life - too bad he also makes her mouth water and her knees weak.

 

Templeton has always been good at keeping his game face on and his emotions hidden, especially in combat. But working with Kate brings back memories of losses he prefers to keep locked up tight. As the pressure mounts - and Christmas draws closer - it’s a given that someone's going to get hurt.

 

Trouble is, the more time he spends convincing his careful, wary trooper that there’s more to the holidays than her memories, the more he wants to keep her around. Forever.

 

But forever is the one thing a man like Templeton can't do. Not even at Christmas. 

 

 

 

She’s a straight-arrow, by-the-rules Alaskan State trooper so Kate Holiday’s objective when it comes to investigating a local band of secretive commandos in remote Grizzly Harbor is clear – disband Alaska Force and arrest them, but she didn’t count on the diabolical temptation of Templeton Cross.  He’s always been good at keeping his game face on and his emotions hidden, but working with Kate brings memories of losses, Templeton prefers to keep locked up tight. With pressure mounting and Christmas drawing closer, it’s a given that someone is going to get hurt.

 

This ‘Alaska Force’ romance is a slow burn romance that requires a lot of hard work as both parties are determined not to give in to their emotions, the electrical chemistry or the heat building up between them, but it seems the more they fight it, the harder they will fall. These strong, vibrant characters captures hearts and provides a delightfully entertaining courtship that makes readers chuckle. Lots of emotions – not matter how much the hero and heroine try to keep them locked down – flow the pages as Templeton and Kate try to uncover who is behind some mysterious incidents that surround the Alaska Force.

 

The plot is fast paced and full exciting events and snaky commentary that builds thrilling suspense and adrenaline pumping excitement through the story which keeps readers on the edge of their seat from beginning to end. Some ‘What the… twists and turns keeps readers guessing and a hero that spends his time trying to convince his careful, wary trooper that there is more to the holidays makes readers hold on tight to this intense, satisfying and entertaining holiday read.

Reviews! Unbreakable Bond & Unbelievable Faith (Fated Mates Duet 1 & 2) Jess Bryant!

 

 

Today I am visiting a wolf pack that discovers fate may something get things wrong, or be cruel, but it sometimes gets it right or can be kind. Enjoy and don't forget to add UNBREAKABLE BOND & UNBELIEVABLE FAITH the 2 books in the Fated Mates Duet by Jess Bryant to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Sometimes fate gets it all wrong.

 

Zoey Kent has lived with that fact ever since she turned eighteen and learned that the man she loved could never be hers. He’s a born shifter, a wolf, and she’s a mere human. Fate doesn’t care if on paper they’re a perfect pair. She isn’t his fated mate and she’s resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she’ll have to watch Michael mate with another. It’s never crossed her mind that there might be someone else out there for her, that she would be the one to mate another, to choose another over everything she’s ever known or wanted.

 

Sometimes fate gets it all right.

 

Rafe Hudson left his pack behind years ago. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, he walked away from his responsibilities as Alpha. He never intended to return but lone wolf or not, he can’t leave Michael open to an attack he’s learned is coming for his only brother. What he didn’t know was that going home would mean scenting his mate, the one person in the world that could make him whole again, that could give him everything he thought he’d lost. His pack, his home and his family.

 

But fate always has a plan.

 

There’s no way Michael’s brother is her future, is there? Just like there’s no way that the girl his brother has loved since they were kids, was always meant to be his, right?

 

Only fate knows why they were brought together but there is one thing for sure, the sparks between Zoey and Rafe are undeniable. The bond between them is unbreakable. And together… they’ll change the face of the pack forever.

 

 

Fate can be cruel.

 

Luna DeLuca has lost everything except for her faith in herself. Kidnapped, tortured and threatened by a male that’s already killed half her family, she knows the only way to save the other half is by offering herself up to him. To save her sisters, she’s willing to do anything, even accept a claim from a male that isn’t her mate, a mark on her soul that will ruin her forever. But if this is what her family needs, what her pack needs, she’ll do it to save them all.

 

Fate can be twisted.

 

Michael Hudson thought his mission to save the neighboring Crescent pack was about helping out a friend. He thought it was about avenging an attack on his own. But the second he sets his eyes on the beautiful girl locked away in a dank basement he knows she’s why he was put on the face of this planet. She’s the reason he’s here. She’s everything. She’s his. His mate. His fate. His future. Only, she bears the scent of another and is nothing like what he imagined his fated mate to be.

 

But fate can also be kind.

 

As brave as she is, Luna’s wolf is submissive and submissive wolves aren’t meant to lead packs. They aren’t meant to be Queens. She knows that. So does Michael. But when he refuses to give up on her, refuses to walk away or back down, she begins to see why fate put them together. She softens him and he strengthens her and maybe, just maybe, if they believe in fate enough they can find their way to forever.

 

 

 

 

At eighteen, Zoey Kent learned that the man she loved could never be hers. Fate doesn’t care that they’re a perfect pair, she isn’t his fated mate and she’s resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she’ll have to watch Michael mate with another. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, Rafe Hudson left his pack and responsibilities as Alpha behind years ago. But when learns of an attack on Michael, he heads home and scents his mate, the one person that can make him whole again. 

 

The first book in the ‘Fated Mates Duet’ is an emotionally gripping read that captures readers’ hearts and refuses to let go. The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers into their story and the chemistry between Zoey and Kent sizzles with heat and electrical current that readers can practically feel leaping from the pages. But the relationship has a major obstacle and the first half of this story is a suspenseful but mostly emotional turbulent read as Zoey, Rafe and Michael tries to come to terms with the hand they been dealt by Fate. 

 

The plot starts off with a steady pace and picks up in the second part of the book as suspense, tension and adrenaline pumping excitement builds with an enemy attacking the pack and surprising twists that also leads up to the second book in this duet. The author created a wonderful setting and very suspenseful situation that grabs readers’ attention and ensures that the want to know the whole story, so they will definitely want to read the next one.

 

 

 

Luna DeLuca has lost everything except for her faith in herself and she knows the only to save her sisters is by offering herself up to the male that’s already killed half her family. He thought his mission to save the neighboring Crescent pack was helping out a friend and avenging an attack on his own, but the second he sets his eyes on the beautiful girl locked away, Michael Hudson knows that she’s the reason he’s here. Her wolf may be submissive but maybe, just maybe, if they believe in fate enough they can find their way to forever. 

 

The characters in this duet are strong, compelling and the author portrays them in such a way that readers can’t take their eyes off them, and in the second half of this duet Luna and Michael captures readers hearts right off the bat. While they meet under horrible circumstances, their relationship is all about hope and Michael is everything an alpha male should be when it comes to taking care of his mate. Lots of chemistry, passion and emotional turmoil stirs up matching emotions in the readers.

 

This story can be read as a standalone, but it is infinitely better read back to back. The plot is faced paced and full of suspense and excitement that keeps the readers glued to the pages with some surprising twists that shake things up. Danger and craziness are added to the story from a hidden threat that brings about a startling twist that wows readers with a wonderfully exhilarating but sweet romances where readers have to agree that fate does get some things right.

Review! Wretched (The Last Hero #2) Cara Crescent!

 

 

I am jumping ahead to the year 2263 A.D. to a perfect Utopian Earth (says who?) where Chief Donovan Reece his having a very bad day and it's only going to get worse before it gets better! Enjoy and don't forget to add WRETCHED the 2nd book in The Last Hero series by Cara Crescent to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

In 2263 A.D., the fighting between nations led to a single malevolent prime minister governing Earth—a perfect Utopia made possible by voiding the opposition and exiling the undesirables to another planet. A war changed all that. Five years later, there’s one last hope.

 

Chief Donovan Reese, once the leader of the largest rebellion in Earth’s history, has seen better days. Karma tends to be like that. Now a disfigured galactic bounty hunter with a gambling-addict for a business partner, and a band of wounded warriors as staff, it’s no real surprise when he’s taken captive by the Vladsets. Expecting to be killed, he’s shocked when the queen demands he wed her daughter instead. Suspicion is quick to follow. Why does the queen fear the tiny figure hidden beneath black shrouds? Why is the Intergalactic Alliance keen for the marriage to stand? And why, despite his war-weary heart, is he drawn to his mysterious bride?

 

In Vladnese, Celeka means Wretched. That’s how her queen mother sees her—how everyone does. That’s why she keeps herself shrouded. But it’s what she’s done to save her sister that makes her feel truly wretched. While unsure of the Chief she’s bound to, he’s her best chance of survival. Though, if he discovers what she did to save her sister, he might kill her himself.

 

Caught between one Queen’s struggle for power, the Intergalactic Alliance’s mechanisms, and their responsibilities to their respective worlds, they must risk everything for the chance to stay together. 

 

 

 

 

A single malevolent prime minister governs the Earth – a perfect Utopia made possible by voiding the opposition and exiling the undesirables to another planet. Five years later, there is only one hope. With the way his life is going Chief Donovan Reese has seen better days, so when he’s captured by the Vladsets it’s no surprise but he’s shocked when the queen demands he wed her daughter. Her name, Celeka, means Wretched and that’s how her queen mother and everyone else sees her. She may be unsure of the Chief she’s bound to, but he’s her best chance of survival and hopefully he won’t discover what she had to do to save her sister.

 

This post-apocalyptic world is a complex but intriguing one that keeps readers on their toes and glued to the pages. The characters are strong, stand out and easily grab the readers’ attention while they try to stay alive long enough to save their respective worlds. The chemistry between Donovan and Celeka sizzles with lots of heat and the passion is hot and steamy but the relationship is anything but easy which keeps turbulent, gut wrenching emotions flowing from every page.

 

This steady to fast paced plot is full of thrills, excitement and a whole lot of adversaries in a futuristic setting that includes an extremely different Earth, space travel and alien worlds. The author has created a very intriguing world that readers that readers can’t help but be fascinated by and the story contains some world shattering and stunning twist that ensures that readers can’t possible predict what might happen next.
