Release Day Review! Shifter Bound (Pack Bound #3) Leisl Leighton!

Shifter Bound (Pack Bound) - Leisl Leighton

 

 

One pack, one coven, a destiny intertwined...

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

Shifter-Witch Eloise O’Brien has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is—the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.

 

 

 

The intriguing Pack Bound saga continues in another thrilling romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the wolves and the witches struggle to accept the changes that are taking place in the pack and with the never ending attacks by their evil nemesis.

 

All the characters in this series are strong and compelling, easily captivating readers with their lives and their romances and Eloise and Iain have a strong sizzling attraction that is pulls them together but their romance is full of strife and upheaval that tugs at readers’ heartstrings and keeps them fully invested in the story emotionally as well as being kept intrigued with every things that is going on. 

 

The suspense and intrigue of all the exciting events that take place in this story keeps readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation as well as keeping them wondering just how the pack will overcome all the adversity and insecurities that flow from the pages as their enemy comes up with new ways to kill off the pack and anyone who gets in their way. There is lots of twists and turns to ensure that the readers can’t possible guess what will happen next.

 

I was completely caught up in the suspense of the story as well as this emotionally turbulent romance where both the hero and heroine seem to think that neither has a chance at a ‘happily ever after’. This series continues to enthrall me and their enemy continues to incite some very strong emotions from me as well, so needless to say I can’t wait to find out what happens in Moon Bound which is supposed to be released next month.

 

 

 

Shifter Bound is the 3rd book in the Pack Bound series.

 

The 4th book - Wolf Bound will be released on May 1, 2018

Release Day Review! Eyes of the Tiger by Patricia Rosemoor!

Eyes of the Tiger - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Jewelry designer Gemma Hewitt has a gift. Gems and jewelry speak to her, which inspires her designs, and also sends her on dark adventures across the globe as she seeks out historic pieces. After her mother is brutally murdered, Gemma inherits her famed jeweled collar, which she hopes will lead her to see the face of her mother’s killer and bring him to justice. Instead, she's thrown back to 1901 India where she sees the young woman about to be married with a pendant that matches her jeweled collar. When she's hired to find the entire bridal suite, she hopes she can use the jewels to save her family's fortune. Can she trust the handsome, enigmatic man who promises to help her on her quest, or is he the one she should be running from?

British reporter/photographer Raj Sinclair wants the bridal suite for his own reasons. Attracted to Gemma, he senses a connection with her as if he’s known her for a very long time. When danger stalks her, he will do anything to protect her.

The treasure hunt takes them to cities from the US to Britain to France, ending in India where the bridal suite is finally rejoined... and three reincarnated souls get another chance to make things right.

 

 

Eyes of the Tiger is chock full of suspense and intrigue as well as romance which keeps readers glued to the pages.  Gemma and Raj are strong, compelling characters that have a sizzling chemistry that heats up the pages while they struggle to with trust and emotional issues that keeps the turmoil high despite their attraction and a smoldering passion that refuses to let them ignore it. The relationship is kind of an all uphill battle between Gemma and Raj but the intriguing events that take place keeps putting them together so they can’t deny the romance.

 

The anticipation builds throughout the story as the danger and the intrigue continues to build with lots of twists and turns to keep the readers wondering until the very end. The author makes it all come to vivid life with well written words that paint vivid images and makes it easy for the readers to become lost in the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for using twisting fascinating tales with unique elements that grab readers attention and keep them absorbed with the mystique and romance of her captivating characters and Eyes of the Tiger certainly holds readers hostage until the very end and to me it had a quest or treasure hunt feel to the story that really pulled me along and made feel as if I was joining Gemma and Raj on their adventure.

Release Day Review! Betrayed & Seduced (House of the Cat #6) Shelley Munro!

Betrayed & Seduced - Shelley Munro

 

 

A pilot on the run. A warrant-taker determined to make a capture. The mating-dance that threatens to destroy them both… 

Warrant-taker Jazen Lav accepts one last assignment before she retires to follow her dreams. She’s hot on the trail of a runaway cyborg, but the path leads to the crew of the Indefatigable and they’re a tight-lipped bunch. Frustration steers her to an undercover gig as a nurse, which places her in the sights of the flirtatious Indy pilot. 

Nanu left his home planet at a young age, missing the last crucial elements of his training before he hit adulthood. The inner beast he thought dead leaps to life on meeting Jazen, taking him by surprise and tossing him into confusion. His inner beast insists Jazen is his mate, but she’s trouble for him, trouble for his friends, trouble for his future. 

Abduction and betrayal—not the best way to start a courtship, and that’s where the turmoil begins since danger stalks into the city with Nanu and Jazen directly in its sights… 

 

 

Betrayed & Seduced is one hot and fascinating read! The Indefatigable crew is back and I couldn’t be happier as the story starts off with an exciting event and keeps the thrills coming from there. Nanu and Jazen are strong characters with lots of sizzling chemistry that keeps the pages heated with smoldering desire and lots of smoking hot passion. The couple has some major obstacles to overcome if they want their happily ever after, but even that is in question until the very end as Jazen’s issues get in the way. The story immediately gets the adrenaline pumping and keeps the readers on the edge of their seats with lots of excitement, intrigue and a couple of betrayals that has quite the impact on the couple. 

 

Shelley’s charming and intriguing House of Cat world just keeps getting better and I have to say that Shelley Munro has outdone herself with this one, as usual she brings her world and her characters to vibrant life and paints such vivid imagery that it easy to become caught up in the story as the readers picture each and every scene and in this case she gave Nanu some very intriguing and sexy characteristics that set the imagination on fire right along with Jazen and I was totally caught up in their story from the get go and I couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word. And since she set up the next book, with some intrigue already, I have to say that I am a bit impatient to read Enticed & Seduced to find out what happens.

 

 

 

Betrayed & Seduced is the 6th book in the House of Cat series.

 

The 7th book – Enticed & Seduced is coming soon.

New Release Review! Claimed By Her Panthers (Claimed Mates #3 / Paranormal Dating Agency) Ever Coming!

Claimed By Her Panthers - Ever Coming

 

 

Matilda had a chance at finding a mate—twice. Her wolf was having none of that. 

Matilda grew up as a rogue with parents who were less than ideal. As a young woman, she took the modeling world by storm, sharing her plus-sized beauty with the world, but fashion wasn’t her calling—becoming a lawyer was and, if the rumors are accurate, she is about to become a partner in one of the most prestigious law firms in the city. To the outside world, she has everything going for her, but Matilda is lonely—her wolf clamoring for a mate. 

No wallflower, Matilda has tried to find her other half. Twice she thought she might have—both times, her wolf disagreed. Daniel and Evan were the ones who got away and while no other men have ever touched her heart the way they did, Matilda knows it is time to move on and contacts the Paranormal Dating Agency where Gerri has not one but two perfect matches waiting for her—or so she promises. 

When Matilda said good-bye to Daniel, he wanted nothing more than to beg her to stay. His panther, however, agreed with Matilda’s wolf in that they were not meant to be, so he let her go. A year later Evan dated and was also rejected by Matilda’s wolf. His panther also agreed to move on, even as his heart wanted nothing more than to hold on tight. It isn’t until Gerri sets both men up on dates with their former love that the reason for their animals’ discontent becomes clear—neither of the men was her true mate alone—they were meant to be a triad—a true fated triad. 

Claimed by her Panthers is an MMF Dating Agency Shifter second chance romance featuring one curvy lawyer, two hot panthers, and a very bossy wolf who refuses to settle for less than what her human half deserves. 

 

 

Sexy, hot and sweet perfectly describes this second chance romance that gives Matilda not one but two hunky loves for her ‘happily ever after.’   The story may be short but the romance is sweet and the passion is smoking hot between these strong, captivating characters that sizzles with electricity on every page. The readers are easily drawn into the story as Matilda, Daniel and Evan are brought back together by the wonderful Gerri Wilder and her matchmaking skills.

 

The author painted vivid images that made it easy for me to become enthralled with the story and get caught up in this sensual and sweet second chance romance.

 

 

 

Claimed By Her Panthers is the 3rd book in the Claimed Mates and is part of the Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle World.

New Release Review! Jilly’s Wyked Fate (Ashland Pride #7) R.E. Butler!

Jilly's Wyked Fate - R.E. Butler

 

 

Mountain lion shifter, Jilly Fallon, has been waiting for nearly three years to turn twenty-one, so she can finally – finally! – officially mate Wyked and Fate Myers, the twin brothers who have stolen her heart. When a panther is injured at a clan gathering and Jilly can’t help, the clan healer takes her to visit a fae healer so she can learn what she needs. During the second visit to see the fae, they find themselves protecting a young girl with pink and blue wings, and a secret that got her family killed. 

Wyked and Fate Myers feel like the last three years have taken an eternity. Now that she’s finally theirs, they’re ready to start a family with their beloved mountain lion. During the last full moon before their clan begins to travel, an old enemy resurfaces, intent on making Jilly suffer for her betrayal. When Wyked and Fate are gravely injured, will she lose them both? 

Contains M/F/M interaction and a happily ever after worth waiting for. 

 

 

I have been waiting impatiently to read Jilly’s story as I am sure Jilly was waiting impatiently for the day of mating to finally take place and I have to tell you that it was well worth the wait. Jilly, Wyked and Fate are strong, charismatic characters that have fascinated me since they met each other. And now, well their passion had each and every page smoldering with some intense heat and well their mating was anything but boring as they sure had lots of emotional issues and other exciting events taking place, so there was never a dull moment anywhere in this book. The Ashland Pride is always fascinating and have easily captured my heart and continue to do so even as it grows, the stories are full of suspense and excitement as well as the wonderful romances that spark such spectacular multiple partner relationships.

 

R.E. Butler continues to bring readers stories full of passion and enjoyment by describing her worlds and characters with vivid detail that brings them to life and makes it so easy to pretend to be part of the story as it unfolds. Which of course, is how I became and continue to be so totally caught up in the Pride and their adventures and I don’t think that the author could have made Jilly’s Wyked Fate any better as she also introduced new characters and given us hints to future stories which I am certainly looking forward to.

 

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is the 7th book in the Ashland Pride series.

 

The 8th book - Embracing Ehrin will be available June 4, 2018.

Fearless Mating - Milly Taiden

 

 

Their jobs have set them at odds, but the attraction brewing between them is too strong to resist in this all-new paranormal romance from the author of Dangerous Mating.

But when A.L.F.A. headquarters is taken in a hostage situation, Josh has a chance to demonstrate the critical nature of the agency's existence, and prove his worth to Candy as a protector and lover.

 

 

 

Fearless Mating is another exciting A.L.F.A. read that gets the adrenaline pumping and the heart pounding.  Josh and Candace have strong chemistry that grabs reader’s attention and keeps them entertained throughout the story. These strong, compelling characters’ relationship starts off on the negative side of any kind of get to know each other measurement which really makes things interesting since Josh immediately recognizes Candace as his mate, and from this rocky relationship just keeps getting more interesting and the steamier.

 

This fast paced plot if full of adrenaline pumping action and thrills that keep readers on the edge of their seats and wondering what will happen next as the bad guys keep the characters as well as the reader guessing just what they are really up to and there are some exhilarating danger filled moments that add to the thrills and excitement.

 

Once again, Milly Taiden’s shifter law enforcement world kept me glued to the pages and once again the A.L.F.A. team has another sensational event where they need to put their skills to the test but this one is even spicier because Josh has met his match and she just may be tougher than he is. I can’t wait to see what Milly Taiden has in store for us next.

New Release Review! Unleashing Her Saber (Saber Mountain Clan #2 / Paranormal Dating Agency) Rebekah R Ganiere!

Unleashing Her Saber - Rebekah R. Ganiere

 

 

Ursa shifter Stix is mortified when his mother marches him to Gerri Wilder, the best matchmaker in the universe, in an effort to secure him a bride. And though Stix appreciates his mother's concern he turns down Gerri's offer, determined to find love on his own terms. 

Saber shifter Satia was almost broken by the torment she endured as a captive on Aurora. But now on earth, and with new found freedom she finds herself with her entire life ahead of her. So she heads to New York City to ask the strongest woman she knows to help her get her new life started, Gerri Wilder. 

Under the guise of securing Satia a job, Gerri sends the girl off to work for Stix. As it becomes quickly apparent to both Satia and Stix that they are meant for each other, a bombshell from Stix's past comes to light that threatens to tear them apart before they even get started. 

 

 

 

Unleashing Her Saber is a hot and heart tugging read that captures the hearts of readers. Stix and Satia are both strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers into their story and refuse to let go. There is quite a bit of emotional turmoil that has to be overcome or soothed in order to have a relationship and then of course to reach their ‘happily ever after.’ The romance is sweet and heartwarming, the passion is sizzling and a major surprise in the couple’s relationship adds more upheaval and tension.

 

The story is fast paced but short and I have to say that I couldn’t put this captivating romance down until I had read it all which isn’t surprising to me since while this is the first book I have read in the Saber Mountain Clan series, it is not the first book that I have read by Rebekah R Ganiere who brings her stories to life with vivid imagery, unique elements and strong, fascinating characters.    

 

 

Unleashing Her Saber is the 2nd book of the Saber Mountain Clan and part of the Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle World.

Review! A Mate To Cherish (Hunters #1) Laylah Roberts!

A Mate to Cherish - Laylah Roberts

 

 

They are fallen from grace. A race once worshipped that had grown arrogant and greedy. Now they are few and spend their lives hunting the guilty and bringing them to justice. 


A sexy dream. Two hot, sensual lovers. More pleasure than she’s ever felt before. What more could a girl want? 


Um, maybe for it to be real. Lauren has hit rock bottom. After fleeing Earth, she ends up penniless and homeless. Before she can even begin her new job, she’s arrested for prostitution and thrown in jail. 


Could things get any worse? 
Well, yes, actually. They could. 
Try getting horribly ill, ending up on the auction block, and being sold to two gorgeous, domineering, stubborn men who intend to return her to the very place she fled. 


Malik knows the female in their dreams is their mate. He wants her, craves her, but he can’t bond with her without Tarin, and convincing Tarin she’s theirs will be an almost impossible task. 


Tarin is always in control. Always in command. But when the hunt leads them to Lauren, he finds that very control tested. She intrigues and annoys him. Brings him both joy and terror. 


But most importantly, she makes him feel.

 

 

 

The first book in the new Hunters series is a story that takes readers on one heck of a steamy and thrilling ride.

 

Lauren, Talin and Malik are solid, engaging characters that easily draw readers into their stories and hold them captive throughout. The romance is a bit rocky due to circumstances and some emotional difficulties which must be overcome and has the readers commiserating with them but the chemistry sizzles from each and every page and the sex scenes are steamy and panty melting worthy.

 

Suspense and anticipation build throughout the story as this fast paced story starts off with an intensity that grabs readers attention and doesn’t let go through one heart stopping moment after another while this threesome tries to come to terms with their situation and their mating circumstance. Will this threesome be able to achieve their ‘happily ever after or will fate be denied? This question keeps readers guessing until the very end and with some wonderful godlike surprises thrown in things stay interesting and readers don’t have any chance of encountering a dull moment.

 

The author did a great job of painting vivid imagery to make me feel as if I was a part of the story and I was enthralled from start to finish so I am looking forward to reading the next Hunters book.

 

 

A Mate To Cherish is the 1st book in the Hunters series.

New Release Review! Theirs to Protect by Stasia Black!

Theirs to Protect - Stasia Black

 

 

In a world where there’s only one woman for every twelve men, a lottery is the chance for five lucky men to win the prize of a lifetime… her hand in marriage.

Nix never put his name in the marriage lottery for a reason. 
He doesn’t need a woman. 


There aren’t that many to go around anyway, not after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population. 
He has his job as head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he needs. He looks out for the township. He protects the few women who are left.
But when his name is called to be one of the five husbands to the woman rescued from the badlands, he doesn’t speak up to correct the error.
Because Audrey’s like no one he’s ever met before. 


Fiesty. 

That’s the name for her. 
She might be just the woman to handle a rough, brutal man like him.

Sharing her with four other men is a small price to pay. 
In fact, the closer they all grow, the more Nix realizes he might finally have again what he lost so long ago—a real family.

But when Audrey’s life is endangered, will Nix be able to save the woman he’s just learned how to love?

 

 

 

Theirs to Protect is a thrilling post-apocalyptic read with a super-hot erotic element that packs an emotional punch and kept me glued to the pages from the very beginning.

 

Audrey and her men are strong, compelling characters with lots of sizzling chemistry. Each of the men have different personalities which adds to the difficulties of traversing this complicated relationship especially since the men not only have to convince Audrey to accept their relationship but they have to get used to sharing with each other.  So the romance is a bit rocky with lots of emotional turmoil and problems to overcome which keeps readers guessing as to whether this relationship will reach that ‘happily ever after’ or not.  Of course there is lots of steamy and electrifyingly hot encounters between Audrey and her new husbands that readers might want to keep a bucket of water close by… you know just in case your ereader starts to melt or you have a few hot flashes yourself.

 

This fast paced plot starts off with some sensitive action and proceeds to keep readers glued to the pages and hanging onto the edge of their seats as they deal escape attempts, difficulties of living in a post-apocalyptic world and of course bad guys and the author does a fantastic job of bringing it all to life with vivid imagery which ensures that the readers feel and understand the emotional impact of the story.

 

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was unable to determine if the author intends to write more stories in this intriguing post-apocalyptic world, but I would certainly want to read them if she does. The story held me captive from the very beginning and I am looking forward to reading more of Stasia Black’s work in the future.

Release Day Review! Ram Wild (Ares Cursed #2 / Zodiac Shifters) Decadent Kane!

Ram Wild - Decadent Kane

 

 

A nymph outcast tied to the land…


Echo is a curvy nymph, the black sheep of her kind. She doesn’t steal men. She even cut herself off from most of the world, except her forest. And Fahd, a magic eater, is consuming the essence within her trees. There’s only one way to stop him, the golden fleece. It took her nearly a year to get her hands on the fleece. And not even a day for the sexy ram shifter, Jace, to find her. However, she won’t be giving the fleece over lightly. Echo’s determined to give him the fight of his immortal life, but she’s worried it’s her own attraction she has to control.


A ram shifter cursed by Aries to never stay in one place…


Jace Argo is an Aries Guardian with one task; protect the mythical golden fleece. When the fleece is stolen right from under his nose, Jace traipses into the forest after the thief. He didn’t expect to run into a raven-haired nymph. He has four days before his curse forces him to leave town with or without the fleece. He will pull out every arsenal in his box of male charms to get what he wants.


A stolen mythical fleece brings them together, everything else will tear them apart.



This book stands alone within the series.

 

 

Ram Wild is a fun and adventurous romance that brings spice to the reader’s life. Everyone that reads the Zodiac Shifters series knows that there are lots of shifter variety to be found in the series and that each book is enhanced by the Zodiac mythology with each author’s books having their own unique elements that make them even more enjoyable for the readers.

 

Decadent Kane’s Ram Wild certainly has all of the above and while the story is full of suspense and thrills that keep readers on the edge of their seats with a pretty scary evil that needs to be vanquished and an unpredictable romance to sweeten the story, this book also has a ‘quest’ feel to the story that brings in the fun and adventure that I mentioned above which certainly spices things up.

 

Jace and Echo are strong, captivating characters that had me enthralled from the very beginning and held me hostage to the very end and I can’t wait to read more books in the Ares Cursed series of the Zodiac Shifters. Did I mention that I really love the Ares, curses, and ram shifters elements of the story because it is so very different from other stories and is in fact the first book that I have read about ram shifters.

 

 

 

Ram Wild is the 2nd book in the Ares Cursed series and part of the Zodiac Shifters series!

Review! A Real Cowboy Never Says No (Wyoming Rebels #1) Stephanie Rowe!

A Real Cowboy Never Says No (Wyoming Rebels) - Stephanie Rowe

 

 

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers a brand new series set in Rogue Valley, Wyoming, home to the Stockton brothers, a clan of fiercely loyal and honorable men, and the women who touch the hearts of these rugged, loner cowboys. 

The only reason rancher Chase Stockton and his brothers survived their brutal childhood was because they protected each other. Nothing will ever come between them…until a sudden tragedy calls in a life debt Chase can't ignore, forcing him to make a choice that could destroy the very bonds that hold his family together. 

Mira Cabot has never asked for help, but when a sexy, protective cowboy makes her an offer she can't afford to refuse, she finds herself on her way to Wyoming to be the shotgun bride of a man she has every reason…and no reason…to trust. 

The sizzling connection between Mira and Chase turns a rescue mission into something dangerously addictive, one that could either heal two broken hearts, or shatter them forever.

 

 

This cowboy romance tugs at the heart strings and makes me want to go out and find a real cowboy to love!

 

Mira and Chase are strong, captivating and are easily related to as they draw readers into their story and refuse to let go until they own every last bit of the reader’s heart. The romance is rocky with lots of heart felt emotional turmoil that adds depth and has readers empathizing with this captivating couple. The story also introduces the Stockton brothers who also grab reader’s attention and captivate their hearts due to their heart breaking past and ensures that the readers will want to know their stories as well.

 

Stephanie Rowe brings her heart capturing world to life with well written words that paints vivid imagery and her wonderful characters life like and I was completely captivated from the very beginning and found her cowboys to be sexy and loveable, so I will definitely be visiting with the Wyoming Rebels again.

 

 

 

A Real Cowboy Never Says No is the 1st book in the Wyoming Rebels series.

 

Books 2-6 is available now.

New Release Review! Hot and Badgered (Honey Bear Chronicles #1) Shelly Laurenston!

Hot and Badgered - Shelly Laurenston

 

 

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.
 
Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

 

 

The first book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which takes place in the Pride Stories world will keep you in stitches with a fun filled and action packed romantic adventure.

 

As usual Shelly Laurenston provides such a fun read that I just can put the book down until I have wrung every last chuckle from every page.  The zany and wonderful characters of her shifter worlds are always strong, compelling and full of snark while they tie readers in knots with laughter, they always make it easy for the readers relate to and become captivated by each and every one. So, needless to say Charlie and Berg stole the show in Hot and Badgered with their sizzling but prickly chemistry as they entertained readers with their quick witted dialogue and funtabulous but dangerous attitudes but don’t think that’s all these characters are about because they also some deep seated emotional issues that while they add to the fun also add depth to their personalities and captivate readers.

 

The fast paced and super charged plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of thills and intrigue and there is no predicting what will happen next. There are several action filled events that gets the adrenaline pumping but also provide some chuckles and since there is lots of hated family members and plenty of enemies, there is never a dull moment to be found in this electrifying story.

 

I have been waiting very impatiently for this story to be released as I love Shelly Laurenston’s books (p.s. I also love her alter ego – G.A. Aiken’s stories as well) and let me tell you that I was quite pleased with Hot and Badgered, she introduces new characters to her fascinating world and maintains her diabolical use of snark and fun to keep readers thoroughly entertained and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

Hot and Badgered is the 1st book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which is a spinoff of the Pride Stories.

New Release Review! Blood Veil (Mission #2) Megan Erickson!

Blood Veil - Megan Erickson

 

 

In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.

Celia: Having never known my parents, I’ve always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I’m attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it’s about time to give up on “normal” once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .


Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it’s up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.

Megan Erickson’s thrilling Mission novels can be read together or separately:
BLOOD GUARD | BLOOD VEIL

 

 

Blood Veil is a thrilling read with some sexy characters that will take your breath away!

 

First, let me tell you that I have not read the 1st book in the series as I somehow missed it (I will be rectifying that asap) and I still really enjoyed Blood Veil but I think that Blood Guard should probably been read first to achieve maximum understanding of Megan Erickson’s very intriguing world. But like I said, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the book without reading it, I just think that the events leading up to this character’s book would have helped to get a more complete picture the world and to fully understand what drives the characters.

 

Now on to my opinion of Blood Veil – Celia and Idris are strong, captivating characters with sizzling chemistry and a heavy-duty attraction that readers can practically feel vibrating from every page, their romance rocky due to some seemingly unresolvable issues and of course the fear of the unknown which draws readers in and keeps them focused on the events throughout the book. The fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats throughout the book with suspense and thrills and surprising twists that keeps readers guessing and the supporting characters are lively and compelling with some bad guys that makes readers want to shoot them themselves.

 

Megan Erickson brings her very intriguing world of vampires to life with vivid imagery, fascinating characters and some unique elements that add spice and intrigue to her world which means that I will definitely be coming back for more as I was completely enthralled with this Mission novel.

 

 

 

Blood Veil is the 2nd book in the Mission series.

Release Day Review! X-Ops Exposed (X-Ops #8) Paige Tyler!

X-Ops Exposed - Paige Tyler

 

 

Lion hybrid and former Army Ranger Tanner Howland retreats into the forests of Washington State to be alone—he’s too dangerous to be around people. He had to leave the love of his life behind but little does he know, she followed him.

Dr. Zarina Sokolov has an anti-serum she hopes will make Tanner human again. But before she can convince him to take it, they discover he isn’t the only hybrid that survived the experiment. And there are people who want to use the hybrid shifters for sport, pitting them against each other for money. But does Tanner have what it takes to save his fellow hybrids and Zarina—or will he lose control again?

 

 

X-Ops Exposed is outstanding! The thrills and emotional depth to the story really captivate and draw readers in and keeping them hostage until the very end.

 

Once again, Paige Tyler impresses me with her very vivid world that is full of energy and vibrant characters that make it impossible not to become a part of all the excitement as it happens. The story is fast paced and full of action infused events that just keep coming keeping readers on the edge of their seats and full of anticipation of what will come next and let me tell you that this enemy is one that I wanted to tear apart with my bare hands and considering what his devious plot unleashes, I’m sure that I’m not the only one but he certainly keeps things exhilarating. The story is full of twists and turns and a betrayal that rocks our hero’s world, while also bringing Tanner and Zarina together into a fantasy fulfilling romance that is rocky and full of emotional turbulence that adds depth and heat to the story. These characters are typical for the X-Ops world in that they are sexy, energetic and captivating but they are unique in their personalities and their intriguing past which adds spice to the already spirited story.

 

I can never get enough of Paige Tyler’s fascinating worlds and X-Ops Exposed is one that sets up the team for some drastic changes and I can’t wait to find out what they what will happen next in the X-Ops shifter division now that things have been turned upside down and inside out (definitely no dull moments to be found in this series).

Early Review! Hold Back the Dark (Bishop Special Crimes Unit #18) Kay Hooper!

Hold Back the Dark - Kay Hooper

 

 

An SCU team investigates an inexplicable string of murders committed by men and women with no memory of their crimes in the latest in this New York Times bestselling series.

Madness has taken ahold of Prosperity, North Carolina. Residents are killing one another, as if in a dream, and waking up with no memory of the monstrous acts they've committed--or why. As the death toll climbs, the local sheriff's department is further rocked by a murder carried out by one of their own. Deputy Katie Cole knows that whatever monster is afoot is beyond her scope...

The Special Crimes Unit is called in for their specific brand of investigation. It will take all their training, all their experience, and every extra sense they can call on to get to the bottom of things in Prosperity. And as a dark pattern begins to emerge, even the most experienced and hardened SCU agents have to wonder if this is beyond their understanding.

 

 

Bishop’s team of psychics is back and this time they have been summoned along with some all new psychics and there are up against an evil that is pushing for a blood bath in this chilling paranormal suspense that had the hair on the back of my neck standing up on end.

 

Kay Hooper’s suspenseful world of psychics is full of wonderful characters that are strong and captivating, always adding lots of depth to each and every case as they try to solve cases using their psychic abilities and at least some of the time they become targets because of those abilities as well. Every case is different and each have their own unique elements and the author makes it all seem very plausible and real that I can’t help but get chills just thinking about.

 

Hold Back the Dark is the newest thrilling read in the series and I was completely enthralled and unable to put the book down until I had read every last detail. The suspense and anticipation kept building throughout and there was no way to predict just what the evil might make happen next which of course means that there is never a dull moment and to make this book even more interesting, the author introduces some new psychics that have trouble controlling their gifts / curses. There is not really a new romance in this book but there are couples that have hooked up in previous books involved in the case so you still get a bit of romance throughout the story.

 

I can never get enough of this series, so of course I can’t wait to read the next one which I think will be the third book in the Bishop Files series and it will be out in October.

 

 

 

Hold Back the Dark is the 18th book in the Bishop / Special Crimes Unit series.
