Release Day Review! Dangerous Mating (A.F.L.A. #3) by Milly Taiden.
Dangerous Mating (An A.L.F.A. Novel) - Milly Taiden

 

 

An undercover mission exposes hidden longings in the irresistible paranormal romance series from the New York Timesbestselling author of Mating Needs

The Alpha League Federal Agency’s sworn duty is to protect humanity from the worst of the paranormal universe. Wolf-shifter Agent Bryon Day has been deep undercover for more than a year, investigating a human trafficking ring, when he goes MIA. Since A.L.FA. never leaves an agent behind, a team is sent to save him—or bring his body home. 

FBI agent and ace cryptographer Kari Tomlin is selected for the rescue task force. Under the ruse of a ditsy tourist, she searches an ancient European city for Agent Day. When she learns he’s locked up in the palace’s dungeon, she plans a covert jailbreak. Together they risk the dangerous, booby-trapped tunnels below the city for freedom…and a chance to discover if this really is a mate bond growing between them.

 

 

 

The first thing that I have to tell you about Dangerous Mating is that the heroine is an unexpected delight. Kari seems to be an unlikely agent with some quirky and unorthodox ways about her and she seems to be a little on the ‘accident prone’ side but yet at the same time she fits right in and delights readers. All the characters are strong, compelling and grab reader’s attention but Kari’s rescue of Bryon is draws readers in as the couple find themselves on a treacherous path to safety. Their romance is hot and steamy but filled with danger which keeps readers turning each and every page.

 

The action and suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seats with twists and turns that also keep them guessing. The bad guys are the kind that evoke all kinds of emotions from readers as they root for Kari and Bryon to take them down.  

 

Milly Taiden has brought another world to life with her well written words that paints vivid images and ensure that the readers feel as if they are a part of the story. The A.F.L.A. world is full of suspense, danger, excitement and captivating and sexy characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

 

Dangerous Mating is the 3rd book in the A.F.L.A. series.

 

Book 4 Fearless Mating is set to be released on April 17, 2018.

 

Dangerous Mating is available in ebook at:

Recent Release Review! The Wicked Billionaire (The Tate Brothers #2) by Jackie Ashenden
The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

 

 

The Tate Brothers were once orphans and they have been raised to do one thing only: protect what is theirs.

As a trained sniper and Navy SEAL, Lucas Tate found the courage to distance himself from the wealthy, wicked patriarch who adopted him. Instead, he’s devoted his life to the elite band of brothers from his unit. So when the widow of one of his former comrades finds herself in apparent danger, Lucas makes it his job to protect her against all enemies. . .and not let her out of his sights.

Grace Riley feels overwhelmed by Lucas's presence, but the cold-eyed marksman will do anything to keep her safe. Soon the special attention he pays her becomes a wild romantic distraction
one that troubles Grace, since Lucas was so close to her deceased husband. Still, how can she resist Lucass intense, ice-blue stare? All she knows is that a life without strong, passionate Lucas is one not worth living. Can Lucas can find a way to honor his former brother-in-arms by saving Grace. . .and loving her, too?

 

 

 

The second Tate Brothers book is an intense and passionate read that kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. Lucas and Grace are solid, compelling characters that both have some emotional issues that has them shying away from love but they can’t help exploring the chemistry that burns strong and hot between them. Readers can easily relate to both characters and can’t help becoming caught up in their story as Lucas fights to protect Grace.

 

The plot is complex, faced paced and multi-layered as it also includes an enemy that seems to have it out for all of the Tate Brothers as well as the bad guys that are after Grace which makes the story full of adrenaline pumping suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seats as bad guys, surprising twists and emotional turmoil fill the pages.  

 

This is the first book in this series that I have read and I had no trouble picking up on the overall plot that involves all three brothers, so the books can be read out of order. While this is the first book in this series it is not the first book by Jackie Ashenden, so I wasn’t surprised that I really enjoyed reading The Wicked Billionaire and of course I am going to have to go back and read The Dangerous Billionaire while I am waiting for The Undercover Billionaire to come out.   

 

 

 

The Wicked Billionaire is the 2nd book in The Tate Brothers series.

 

#3 The Undercover Billionaire is due to be released March 27, 2018.

 

The Wicked Billionaire is available in print or ebook at:

New Release Review! The Cinderella Hoedown & The Rapunzel Rodeo (Fated Mate Speed Dating 1 & 2) by Sable Sylvan!

 

 

There's no way you'd catch Kelly Dean at a speed dating event…unless her best friend, Savina, had something to do with it. There's also no way you'd find the no-nonsense BBW in the company of three different alpha male cowboys in the span of under a week, but when werebears after their fated mates get mixed with women who are two parts sass, one part curves, you'll find anything can happen. The only question is, will this Texas fairytale end with this Cinderella finding her Prince Charming…and her lost shoes?

Kelly's a recent college grad keeping herself busy by helping her friend Savina organize the first ever Fallowedirt Hoedown, a celebration of the town's recent economic growth. Part of that growth has come in the form of the McCarthy Dude Ranch, home to a veritable bounty of hot shifter men. Kelly's far too busy to date one man, much less three hot-blooded cowboy werebears who all want to claim her as their fated mate. She definitely doesn't have time for their drama. While these cowboys might be experts at driving cattle, it seems all these shifters can do with Kelly is drive her away.

Jeff, Tom, and Will may seem similar, but the three grizzly bear cowboys couldn't be more different. All-American Jeff can't stand local bad boy Will, and neither can stand the out of towner, Tom the doctor. These three grizzlies can barely get along on the ranch, working side by side. How are they supposed to manage to menage? The clock's ticking, and while these three fight, the hoedown swiftly approaches, and Kelly's curves are sashaying right back out of town. Which one of these cowboys will win Kelly's heart?

Love fairy tales and fated mates? Can't get enough of speedy reads and speed dates? Into sassy BBWs learning to love and the hot-blooded wild shifter heroes begging to be tamed? Not afraid of a good-old-fashioned happy ending (no cliffhangers allowed) for a three-on-one menage a trois-plus-one? And most importantly, do you think that grandmas and pies can save the frikkin' world?

Then check out "The Cinderella Hoedown", and look for the rest of the books in the "Fated Mate Speed Date" series on Amazon, available via the Kindle Unlimited program! This series has elements of romantic comedy, Western romance, and of course, shifter-focused paranormal romances between curvy BBWs and a menagerie of different alpha male shifters.

 

 

 

Curvy seamstress Olivia Larson likes three things: costumes, horses, family. She isn't looking to add anything to that list, especially not three more things in the form of cowboy shifters. The last thing she needs is some werehorses getting in the way of her charity rodeo, but apparently, the trio of Matt, Richard, and Jason is up to that challenge. Fallowedirt isn't a one-horse town anymore. The only question is, will this Rapunzel let down her emotional walls and learn to let down her hair, or will she look her gift horses in the mouth?

Olivia's not looking for love. She's just looking to help raise money for the local library by helping out at the Fallowedirt Rodeo. When the three dominant werestallions she let herself fall for cause a huge mess for her to clean up, she's not about to let herself be fooled twice by her own heart. A leopard can't change its spots, but can these stallion shifters become horses of a different color? She's going to need to see proof that they're not just stuffing horse crap in a Trojan horse…and that's straight from the horse's mouth. Otherwise, how will Olivia know if she's betting on the wrong horses?

You can lead a horse to his fated mate, but you can't make him menage. Matt, Richard, and Jason can't get along during the day at the McCarthy Dude Ranch, where they all work putting their shifts to good use. The last thing they need is another thing to fight over, but Olivia's not just any 'thing': she's a full-bodied, sassy woman with curves that they each think they deserve. The only question is, will these three men stop horsing around, get off their high horses, and finally get down to the business of winning back their mate? Or are they trying to close the stable door after the horses have already bolted?

Love fairy tales and fated mates? Can't get enough of speedy reads and speed dates? Into sassy BBWs learning to love and the hot-blooded wild shifter heroes begging to be tamed? Not afraid of a good-old-fashioned happy ending (no cliffhangers allowed) for a three-on-one menage a trois-plus-one? And most importantly, do you think that grandmas and pies can save the frikkin' world?

Then check out "The Rapunzel Rodeo", and look for the rest of the books in the "Fated Mate Speed Date" reverse harem romance series on Amazon, available via the Kindle Unlimited program! This series has elements of romantic comedy, Western romance, and of course, shifter-focused paranormal romances between curvy BBWs and a menagerie of different alpha male shifters.

 

 

Having read the first two books in the Fated Mate Speed Date series back to back, I decided to combine my reviews. Both stories have strong characters that draws readers in, sweet romance and some hot and steamy ménage sex scene and some fun dialogue that adds that something extra the stories. The heroines have some pretty heavy duty decisions to make regarding which suitor they should pick or if they should take them all which adds quite a bit of emotional turmoil to the story and all parties have to decide if a ménage relationship would be right for them.

 

The world has a unique twist that makes them a bit different from other dating stories and are full of some hot & sexy cowboy shifters that has readers panting for more. I enjoyed both stories and got quite a kick out of the storylines and the characters, so if you want a good story on the light hearted side but full of sizzle, then these two books are the books for you.

 

I give both books 4 stars!

Recent Release Review! Haunted by Shari Nichols
Haunted - Shari Nichols

 

 

When medium Karly Matthews agrees to move into a haunted inn, she’s not sure what’s more dangerous, the ghost or the sexy innkeeper she tries to resist. She’s can’t deny the intense rush of desire she feels every time he’s near. When she agrees to embark on a no-strings-attached relationship, she finds herself thrust into a world of mind blowing pleasures. Now she must face the aching truths of her past. 

Hotel heir Thayne Harper has a laser-like focus on success that doesn’t include the help of his family. He’s always been the black sheep, living in the shadow of his dead brother. His dreams are put to the test when a supernatural entity threatens to ruin everything. The one bright spot is the woman who intrigues his mind and heats his blood. 

If only he can convince her that, despite his bad boy ways, he can change for the good. Her love becomes his only salvation. Passion burns white-hot as a dark threat looms. The ghost doesn’t want them to be together and sets her sights on Thayne, luring him to a place that goes beyond death. Will Karly be able to save him before it’s too late?

 

 

 

A good ghost story is something that I find hard to come by, there are several reasons for this but hey I’m the type of person that loves horror stories although they can’t scare me. So, anyway, when I find a one I just want to shout from the rooftops. Shari Nichols has done it with her book Haunted, it had all the spine tingling chills that I associate with ghosts, moving furniture, cold spots, the works, so I highly recommend that you grab your blanket, curl up and settle in.

 

The characters are strong, compelling and easily related to and the romance between Karly and Thayne is hot and messy because the chemistry and the sex is ubër hot, but the emotional currents that run between these two are a roller coaster of feelings due to past issues and current situations. Readers are drawn in and easily become caught up in the tension that fills the pages which of course comes from the romance, but also the thrilling suspense of what will happen with the ghost especially since this ghost seems to become more and more irritated with as Karly tries to help.

 

The author brought her world to live with well written words and I could practically feel the cold chills run down the back of my neck along with all the characters, so I really enjoyed Haunted and I will be looking for the next book Shari Nichols.

New Release Review! Storm Crossed (Grim # 4) by Dani Harper

 

 

The latest stand-alone novel in Dani Harper’s Grim Series will delight old and new fans alike, transporting them to the ancient fae realm beneath the modern human world, where magic rules and menace abounds…

Heir to a noble fae house, Trahern is forced to watch helplessly as his twin brother is cruelly changed into a grim—a death dog—as punishment for falling in love with the wrong person. Trahern doesn’t believe love exists, but he will do anything to keep his brother alive—even join the Wild Hunt and ride the night skies of the human world.

Lissy Santiago-Callahan believes in love but has no time for it. She’s busy juggling her career as an academic and her home life as a single mom to a young son with Asperger’s. Her hectic life in sleepy Eastern Washington is made even more chaotic with the sudden arrival of a demanding fae and his unusual “dog.”

Mortal and immortal have nothing in common, and the attraction between Lissy and Trahern surprises them both. But when their desire places Lissy and her child in the path of a deadly faery feud, will the connection last, or will their separate worlds prove too great a divide?

 

 

 

I have to be honest and tell you that while I have been intrigued by this series for some time, various life events have intruded upon my time and I kept getting distracted from reading it. I am very sorry to have done so, because after finally reading one, I can’t believe what a great world I have been missing.

 

There are plenty of fae books out there and each and every author puts there unique touches to their worlds and Dani Harper has done the Grim or Black Dog legends proud. She brought her world to life by painting very vivid images of it and giving readers some strong, compelling characters that reach out and grab reader’s attention.

 

Trahern and Lissy are two of those characters and I have to tell you that they have some strong chemistry that practically leaps off the pages during their romance. Both pull readers in and refuse to let go as their story is full of emotional turmoil as well as heated passion and their personalities are realistically human and fae sounding which makes for a really great romance to get caught up in. Lissy’s son and Trahern’s brother also play an integral part of this romance which adds depth and also adds to the realness of the story as well as tugging on heart strings.

 

Add in the Wild Hunt, an unbalanced power hungry fae queen, well-meaning friends and some other intriguing characters and you have a well-rounded story full of suspense and thrills that keep readers glued to the pages and that’s not to mention the adrenaline pumping magical battles that the author brings to vivid life.

 

Well, I have to be going now because I am off to read the first three books in this series since I am such a goof that I missed them, oh and I want to point out that I had no trouble reading this one out of order and I can’t wait to find out what this author has in store for me not only that I have missed but what she writes in the future.

 

 

  

  

Storm Crossed is the 4th and final book in the Grim Series.
