Awesome!
Cursed - A Spellbound Regency Novel - Lu... Cursed - A Spellbound Regency Novel - Lucy Leroux

Cursed by Lucy Leroux is part historical romance and part paranormal.  Ms. Leroux has provided us with a well-written book furnished with outstanding characters.  Isobel grew up learning witchcraft from her grandmother until her aunt was killed.  When her father passes away she's forced to take a position as a governess.  Matteo was cursed and he and his father traveled from Italy to find a witch to cure him, only to find she was dead when they arrived.  Matteo and Isobel rush to find a cure before it's too late.  Their story is loaded with drama, sizzle, action and suspense along with a big dose of paranormal.  I enjoyed reading Cursed and look forward to reading more from Lucy Leroux in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

REVIEW BY AMY - Cursed by Fire (Blood & Magic #1) by Danielle Annett
Cursed by Fire (Blood & Magic #1) - Danielle Annett

Blood is going to spill... 

I just hope it won’t be mine. 

After two weeks of searching, I found the seven-year-old I'd been hired to find too late. His body broken and discarded. Dead. 

My boss doesn't want me to hunt down his killers. It's too dangerous. 

But the Pacific Northwest Pack steps in, hiring me to bring the bastards to justice. 

Turns out the kid was half shifter. And shifters don't abandon their own. 

In a search that takes me through the maze of shifter hierarchy and the depths of the paranormal underworld, these killers underestimate how determined I am to mete out their punishment. Vigilante justice is the only kind these people understand. 

Yes, blood will spill. And I'm determined it will be theirs. 

You'll love Cursed by Fire because its a fast paced Urban Fantasy novel with a kick butt heroine and unexpected twists around every corner.

New Release Review! Stone Cursed: Taurus (Highland Gargoyles #6 / Zodiac Shifters) Lisa Carlisle!
Stone Cursed: Taurus (Highland Gargoyles #6) - Lisa Carlisle

 

 

Locked in stone.

On his night off from sentry duty, gargoyle shifter Alec heads out for a night flight. When he spots a strange green light, he soars closer to investigate.

And is caught...

Veda has had doubts about Kai since they left their coven to seek ley lines in the Scottish Highlands. When he curses a gargoyle with dark magic, she's forced to act. How can she free the gargoyle from his stone prison without invoking Kai's notorious wrath?

If you’re a fan of the Zodiac Shifter novels, you’ll love meeting this Taurus shifter who is as sensual as he is stubborn
.

 

 

Stone Cursed is another great Highland Gargoyles story. It has strong, compelling characters that draw readers in and refuses to let go. Veda and Kai have sizzling chemistry and are easy to connect to which it makes readers want to know everything about them and how their happily ever after will work out. The story is fast paced with plenty of thrills and excitement as the couple escape from a bad witch with a greedy power hungry mindset and lots of emotional turmoil as they try to maneuver their way through their attraction and their issues that get in the way of their romantic journey that has some blazing hot passion to heat up the pages and their libidos which of course makes all that emotional angst lose its importance – which is how it should be right?.

 

Lisa always brings her sexy gargoyles to vivid life and her Highland Gargoyle world always keeps me glued to the pages, so the fact that I really enjoyed Stone Cursed, doesn’t surprise me at all, if fact it just makes me want more.

 

 

 

Stone Cursed: Taurus is the 6th book in the Highland Gargoyle series which includes:

 

  • Knights of Stone: Mason
  • Knights of Stone: Lachlan
  • Knights of Stone: Bryce
  • Knights of Stone: Seth
  • Knigts of Stone: Calum

 

Stone Cursed: Taurus is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   iBooks   Kobo   GPlay

Book Review of Vicious Rumer: Haunted. Hunted. Cursed. You've Never Met Anybody Like Rumer Cross by Joshua Winning
Vicious Rumer: Haunted. Hunted. Cursed. You've Never Met Anybody Like Rumer Cross - Joshua Winning

‘A gripping and moody psychological thriller. It'll keep you up all night’ – Closer Magazine

 

Rumer Cross is cursed.

 

Scraping by working for a dingy London detective agency, she lives in the shadow of her mother, a violent criminal dubbed the ‘Witch Assassin’ whose bloodthirsty rampage terrorised London for over a decade.

 

Raised by foster families who never understood her and terrified she could one day turn into her mother, Rumer has become detached and self-reliant. But when she’s targeted by a vicious mobster who believes she’s hiding an occult relic, she’s drawn into the very world she’s been fighting to avoid.

 

Hunted by assassins and haunted by her mother’s dark legacy, Rumer must also confront a terrible truth: that she’s cursed, because no matter what she does, everybody she’s ever grown close to has died screaming.

 

Review 4.5 rounded up to 5*

 

This is an intriguing crime thriller set in London, England. I loved it!

 

Rumer is a fascinating character. I found myself not only liking her, but also feeling sorry for her, though I also wanted to shake her at times too. She is nineteen years old, but seems more mature. This is due to her upbringing I think. She has grown up in foster care, knowing that her mother was a notorious assassin. Unfortunately, she believes herself to be cursed as everyone she comes to care for dies in the most terrible ways. Working for a private detective as a shadow (someone who follows, watches and listens to garner information), she is thrown into a life and death struggle when a mobster turns his attention in her direction seeking an occult relic last known to be in the possession of her mother, who died several years previously.

 

Although not YA like the author's previous works, this is an intriguing crime thriller that instantly caught my attention when I read the synopsis. Knowing that I would also be taken on an amazing journey was a bonus.

 

I started reading and didn't put the book down until I'd completed it. The story is told through Rumer's eyes and in first person. I found myself fascinated with Rumer and her life. I cannot imagine how knowing that you are the progeny of a criminal/assassin (even if deceased) would affect your life. Rumer emotionally distances herself from everyone in the hope that she will not 'kill' like her mother. She carries around a huge burden of guilt for things that she has no control over too. Understandable in some ways, annoying in others hence my desire to shake her at times.

 

There are several interesting characters introduced. Rumer's employer is Julian Hart and runs Hart Detective Agency, but he is only in a few scenes so didn't really get a feel for this character. Reverend Mara is the name of the mobster who is after Rumer and I found him to be a strange character. He is obsessed with locating an occult weapon called the Crook Spear. Then there is Bolt, an ex-policeman who befriends Rumer. I would have liked to have gotten to know him a lot more as there seems to be some chemistry between him and Rumer and would have liked for the author to have explored this a bit more. There are also a few other characters introduced, like George for instance and someone thought to be long dead.

 

Vicious Rumer is a pulse pounding read full of action, danger and violence. There are several twists and turns that surprised me and I found myself on an emotional roller coaster ride from beginning to end. I did find some scenes disturbing, particularly the one containing George and I shed a couple of tears for not only him, but Rumer too.

The occult weapon with the weird name is not what I thought it would be. However, so as not to spoil it, I will not say what kind of weapon it is. I will say that when it was disclosed I was completely thrown; I had a completely different weapon in mind. The end of the story sent chills up my spine. There could potentially be a sequel as it finishes ambiguously and ominously.

 

Joshua Winning has written an intriguing crime thriller with a kick-ass heroine. I love his fast paced writing style, and the story flowed beautifully. He is one of only a handful of male authors who I have added to my favourite authors list and I can't wait to see what he will come up with in the future.

 

Due to the nature of the story (danger, violence, bloodshed), I do not recommend this book to young readers or those of a nervous disposition. I do, however, highly recommend this book if you love crime thrillers with kick-ass heroines. - Lynn Worton

MY REVIEW

 

The Cursed Canoe by Frankie Bow had some good writing and interesting characters, but I wanted more of the mystery and what saved the story for me is that I didn’t guess the ending, which is a huge plus for me, a very good thing.
