I liked this story a lot. I liked the plot and pace. I really liked the twists and turns of this story. This is definitely a good mystery romance as far as I am concerned. I loved how the author kept us readers guessing until the end. There is a lot of action in this story and just enough romance. I had no problem with my attention wandering while reading this story.I loved the characters and the twists and turns of this story and I recommend.

When Darkness Ends (Guardians of Eternity Book 12) - Alexandra Ivy

Cyn is a self-confessed hedonist and proud of it. He doesn't want to settle down or stop partying or stop indulging in all of life's pleasures, so when a fairy princess and him end up dropped naked in caves under his lair and told by an oracle that they have to work together to stop the next evil plaguing their world, his reaction is to leave said princess alone in his caves. Princess Fallon has longed to experience life and Earth. Tired of living the submissive and pampered life at court she wants to live and make her own choices, so she jumps at the chance to help the oracles to discover who is trying to control the Commission even if that means working with the obnoxious but so gorgeous and arrogant vampire. They butt heads from the get-go. He can't seem to see past her spoiled and pampered façade to see that she isn't actually either of those things, but she can't stop fantasizing about him. Cyn tries to ignore her presence in his lair while he works on his part of the puzzle but he can't seem to stay away from her or stop worrying about her comfort. When pieces start to fall into place Cyn and Fallon also start to spend more time together. When Cyn is nearly killed by the villain Fallon rushes to save him, which leads to her royal fiancé finding out where she is. Cyn hates Magnus on site and when Magnus forces Fallon to break the engagement Cyn doesn't stop long enough to think, he just wants to claim her for his own. As they fight along side each other, Fallon fights to be independent and for Cyn to accept that she wants to have the choice as to who she spends her life with. Cyn comes to realize that she is his mate but he knows he can't stake a claim on her, not after all that her father and ex-fiance put her through. But he will not stop trying to prove to her that he is the best choice and that she is safe with him. I loved the story and their character development. Their interactions on the page were great to watch. The plot was strong and the conflict developed at a good pace. I enjoyed the side plot with Magnus and Tonya too. I looked forward to their page time. Overall great story and a wonderful romance.

Five brave military heroes have survived the hell of a Taliban prison to return home—and take on civilian missions no one else can. They’re the men of ARES Security. Highly skilled, intimidating, invincible, and one by one, tested again and again…
 
Lucas St. Clair’s prestigious family had a political future neatly planned out for him—one that didn’t include his high school sweetheart, Mia Ramon. Under their pressure, Lucas gave her up. But since surviving captivity, he’s a changed man—and a crucial member of ARES Security. When he discovers a dead man clutching a picture of Mia that bears a threatening message, his fiercest protective instincts kick in, and he knows he must go to her.
 
Mia has never forgiven Lucas for breaking her heart, and she’s convinced her feelings for him are in the past. But it’s soon clear that isn’t true for either of them. Now, determined to solve the crime and keep Mia safe, with his ARES buddies backing him up, Lucas will have to reconstruct the murder victim’s last days—and follow a lethal trail that leads right back to the fate of the woman he still loves…

The ARES men are back.

 

I’m finding that I enjoying the ex-military heroes who band together, like brothers, to form their own business. It is such a fantastic and enjoyable concept to read.

 

Kill Without Shame is full of mystery, suspense, a second chance romance, and so much more. It was a non-stop page turner, entertaining, and satisfying. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the murder and Mia. All the characters where easy to like. The second chance love story was captivating and adorable. Lucas and Mia worked together and made a great couple. And, last it was nice to see more of the other guys Lucas works with. They each have their own unique abilities and backgrounds and to see how they stand up for one of their own, it’s touching.

 

I had a delightful time read Kill Without Shame. I LOVE the men of ARES Security and can’t wait for the next installment.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Three Sweet Quick Stories
Here Comes the Bride - Alexandra Ivy

This is a trilogy about three friends who return home to England after fighting in the war. Along the way, they save a gypsy from a mob. She “curses” each of them with the promise of finding true love before the next year.

This was a quick book even though the author did a great job of having three complete stories. Each story had it’s own different twist so it wasn’t like reading three of the same story. I really enjoyed each of them. It actually reminded me that I can still enjoy sweet stories when I take the time to read them. I highly recommend this book.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
